We had an amazing experience with this moving crew. To start, Dave himself was incredibly professional and helpful. I couldn't be more happy with the price of the service. We were doing a move where we hired 3 people from Daves crew to come out and load our U Haul truck. Mike, Eric and Buddy were so helpful and professional. Anyone who has done a big move like this, to another state, knows how stressful it is. These guys showed up with a positive attitude and ready to work. One of these guys is an engineer, and obviously all three had a lot of experience in how to pack a big house into a truck. They worked hard and fast. They made sure we were going to arrive at our location with things in tact so they planned it all out and we were really impressed with how everything went into the truck. They also gave us lots of advice and helped my husband get his car onto the trailer. Eric even called us later about how to make sure we were able to unload the car off the trailer once we arrived. I have hired a lot of moving companies in the past and these guys definitely went above and beyond. I have never been more impressed! When we arrived, not a single thing was broken or scratched. It was perfect and because of how they had packed everything, offloading was fast and easy. I am so grateful for these guys and would highly recommend the company. Especially if they send Mike, Eric and Buddy you will be lucky!!!!! Thanks for the great service!

C&J took on my lawn when many other companies wanted to charge top dollar or even didn’t respond to my requests for their business. I have a rather large property and my previous landscaper moved out of the area, so the grass was rather tall and things were out of hand. C&J not only got it under control, but have helped me with other lawn and yard projects. I would certainly recommend them to my friends and family.

There are no words to totally describe all the talent this humble perfectionist holds. Marcus has been working with us on restoring a older home throughout for the last four months...and each and every project was above and beyond perfection. We are almost sad that our endless projects are over...but want others to experience his quality workmanship!! 2005 plank porcelain throughout with all the proper prep work to level and seal the floors...baseboards and trim work too! Addition of master tile walk in shower...including plumbing, framing sealing. Installation of vanities mirrors lighting closet systems. The look is straight out of Houzz...he has exceptional taste in helping select materials and yet maintain budget costs. (or let you choose a color he is not fond of!!) Carpentry throughout was exquisite as he moved through the home with us tackling each and every item with ingenuity and expertise. It IS all the small things in life that really count....and we were so thrilled to find that with Marcus on the project...we didn't need to call in any additional companies to get the job finished. His wife Vivian who also is a perfectionist came to assist in all the construction clean up, detail painting and staging....they are quite the ultimate team! I have worked with many many contractors over the years and no one can compare....if he is available to quote to perform work on YOUR project....look no farther.... in fact JUMP on the chance! I have him on speed dial for any upcoming projects on Sanibel....and it is our pleasure to recommend him ...if you are lucky enough to find that he is available to do your project...hire him on the spot! Blessing to you and Vivian as you go forward Marcus...making customers happy, homes beautiful and collecting life long friendships one job at a time! We are grateful for our "chance meeting" here on Thumbtack!!

Moving is hard, especially when you don't know how the moving company will do their job. I was very nervous prior to their arrival but felt calm when I met these awesome people. They immediately understood my situation (I was still packing and wrapping last things) and started loading the truck fast and carefully after even having arrived a few minutes early. They were so polite and professional loading and unloading the furniture and boxes. They asked each time where to put a piece in the new home. I will certainly use them again next time. Speedy and reliable. Thank you so much for an awesome job!

Bellhops were professional from the first phone call to the invoice. Booking was easy and efficient. The movers called to confirm and showed up on time (actually a few minutes early). They worked fast and safe and were a huge help. I would recommend them for local move as they were more than 50% cheaper than big moving company. Thanks Bellhops!

Jeff and his crew did an exceptional job moving a heavy daybed into an upstairs home. They were very careful and paid a great deal of attention to the task at hand calculating how to best navigate small doorways and angles. I really appreciated that they removed their shoes in order not to damage newly finished wood floors. They were all very polite and I enjoyed meeting them. Thank you! We will call you again for sure!

This company has to be to the finest moving company that ever dealt with the public. They were there exactly when they said they would be. I don't take care of my furniture as well as they did. OMG!!! They were like a team. Wrappers, carriers, and the packer that was like putting a puzzle together in the truck. They spent all day from 10 am. It was 90 degrees and they wouldn't stop. I felt so bad I ran out to get ice coffee for them then forced them to stop to eat sandwichs I bought. But after all was said and done someone in their company seemed to make a mistake on the estimate I was given. Instead of 1 truck it took 2 26' trucks. One of the owner Dave, showed up with the 2nd truck. He worked every bit as hard as his guys. I thought OMG this oversight is going to cost me a fortune!! I was shocked when I got a phone call from Kimberly in their company to tell me the mistake was on their part and they were honoring their estimate. Any company that stands behind their word is the company I will.ONLY do business with!!! SO IF YOU CHOOSE ANOTHER MOVING COMPANY YOU'RE MAKING A MAJOR MISTAKE!!!!!!

As many folks have mentioned, moving is a ubiquitously hated part of life. But, in all honesty, Great Nation Moving makes it relatively painless. I have used many moving companies in my life but Great Nation and the moving team beat all the expectations. We moved to New England, and they did an awesome job. Came right on time, and did a quality job with unloading and setting up our belongings. We were packed and loaded in one day and delivered within 5 days without any scratches, dents, or missing items. They were on budget, nothing hidden, and the crew was fantastic and hard working. I Highly recommend Great Nation for a long distance move.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What do moving companies do?

    Moving companies provide a range of services to help you physically move out of one residence and move into a new place. But moving companies can do so much more than just haul your belongings across town in a truck. The national average for moving company prices ($250-$350 per hour) reflects the range of services provided. Here are examples of all the ways moving companies can help:

    • Packing: Moving companies can pack your belongings for you. They typically charge a flat rate for both the box and the labor to pack the box. The more time-consuming the belongings are to pack, the higher the cost per box. For example, books could be $5 per box, linens $10 per box, and fine china and glassware $18 per box.
    • Specialty moving: Safely move a baby grand piano, a oversize aquarium, or other specialty items with the help of pro movers.
    • Storage: Many moving companies can store your belongings while you wait for a new home to be remodeled or closing of your new home to be finalized. If you’re moving long-distance, they often provide short-term storage free for a specific length of time, and a set rate after that (such as $60 per square cubic foot of storage space used).
    • Long-distance moves: No need to rent a trailer and move your things; a long-distance moving company can haul your belongings across the country for you. Typically they charge by the cubic foot for moves, with prices based on your destination.
    • Unpacking: Moving companies can even unpack your belongings for you after they have moved them. This is not as common, and will definitely increase the price, but can be helpful if you’re not able to tackle this task yourself.

    How much does a moving company charge per hour?

    When you’re ready to make a major move, it’s time to research moving companies’ prices. A moving company may charge on average anywhere between $25 and $100 per hour, per worker, for moving services. The price will vary with regional labor rates, local cost to do business, and the level of service the movers are providing. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a moving company is $250-$350 per hour. This price includes a range of pricing, from all-in service with four or more movers on site to standard hourly rates for one or two movers. Other factors that affect moving companies’ prices are packing, stairs (or elevators), and distance. For a full-service move, you pay movers to pack your belongings for you. You may pay for the cost of the moving boxes and an hourly rate per worker, and there may be additional charges for packing fragile items. Stairs will also add to your moving prices. Lifting and carrying boxes and furniture up and down stairs takes more time and creates more physical labor for the workers. Moving companies may charge flat rates for flights of stairs, such as $50-$70 per flight. A moving company may also charge a one-time fee for moving things via elevator, such as $75-$100. If parking is not accessible in front of your home or apartment building, there may also be an additional fee for the added distance to carry your belongings to the truck.

    How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

    Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

    In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

    How much does it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment across the country?

    Professional movers can handle the hard work of moving your one-bedroom apartment across the country for you. You can determine what your move will cost by learning the rate your movers charge per cubic foot and how they factor distance into the total cost. Cross-country movers typically charge based on your belongings rather than apartment size because that determines how much work they will have to do. For example, a studio apartment that is crammed full of things will take more work and moving truck space than the contents of a three-bedroom apartment with very little furniture.

    Cross-country movers may also have varying rates, depending on where in the country you are moving. For example, a company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. A one-bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,500 to move across the country.

    How much does it cost to move across the country?

    The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

    The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
