I worked with Scott on my quote and to set up the appointment for the move - everything went well there. I had to follow-up for a receipt on my deposit after waiting 24 hours, but that's no big deal. I read about this situation in some of the reviews prior to hiring Next Door - - - > I clearly asked for 2 movers, and the company sent 3 with an updated estimate for 3. I realize that having fewer moves may equate to the job lasting longer, which is an increased cost. However, if you ask a customer how many movers they want, and you quote them on that, you should not just "send 3" because you feel like it. The mover has made an 'adult' decision on cost/movers/hours based on the rate information provided. Otherwise, don't ask... just state "for a job of this size we'll have to send 3 movers." The movers were great (manager - Aaron) in the following areas. They worked as quickly and efficiently as possible while taking care of the furniture. They had outstanding personalities, which helps if you're going to be with them for hours, and they seemed focused on customer satisfaction - except in one area, which I'll cover next. If you're looking for extreme attention to detail for your move, consider some alternatives. While I was happy with my move and tipped each of the crew men (they deserved it), I can't review the company without pointing out these things: - The appointment was for 8:30-9:30am arrival. Aaron called me at 9:02 am to tell me they were on the way. At 10:02am I had to call him for an update. He said they were "gassing up the truck" and were about 20 minutes away - which they were. When punctuality is key, perhaps "gassing up the truck" is something that could be done prior to the job. If not, please call if you're missing the mark by an hour. I understand that things happen. - I warned the crew several times that my bed was very heavy and needed special care. I told them of everything in the house, the bed was my "baby." They left one person standing with the headboard, which then fell, and the legs on the headboard frame 'kicked up' knocking a hole through the bedroom wall. - We left the house of origin. Halfway to the new home on 285, they called me. They'd left the screws for my bed at the old house and *I* had to turn around to go get them. Also left in the old house was shrink wrap and a large blue drop cloth. - I arrived at the new house (new construction with a white concrete driveway). The truck was backed in and something was dripping. I told Aaron that I'd like to put a drop cloth under the drip. He said there was a loose cap on a tank near the front of the truck that he had since tightened - the drip should no longer be an issue. - When I inspected the bed's frame post set-up, I noticed the support legs under the slats were leaning. I removed the mattress and the box springs (King Size). 4 of the holes in the slats did not have screws in them (they DID at the old location); the slats were just 'floating' on the frame. The supports under the slats were not screwed in. Had I gone to sleep on the bed or had other activities, it would have surely collapsed. - Wrenches and drop cloths were left at the new home Again, I must reiterate - they are great movers: friendly, timely, (almost) no damage to either property. What's lacking is an attention to detail and quality checks along the way.

These young men were my life savers. I was done VERY dirty by Ready To Move Movers off of Fulton Industrial, only part of my apt was moved due to their error in getting the correct size truck. They took my money...ignored my calls. I was in a desperate situation needing to get the remainder of my items and Chris and his staff came to my rescue at a very reasonable FLAT fee. Chris was quick to respond...did the move same day...beat me to the location and was very professional!!! I can't rave enough about the quality of service I received. These guys cleared my apt in 30 mins... I was spook impressed. I will recommend their services to ANYONE needing to move. Thank you, Chris!!!

Needed a three-piece sectional delivered from the furniture store to my apartment. DALowe Movers were at the furniture store before me lol. They were super quick, efficient and very affordable. The owner is really personable and committed to providing exemplary customer service. As they were heading out, I made sure to let them know that I have to furnish two additional rooms in my apartment, plus have some desks, wall mounts and possibly a couple of storage units assembled, so they should be on the lookout for me to hire them again, very soon. DALowe Movers made a great first impression and did an overall excellent job!!!

I had two fantastic movers. My problem came in with the fact I was promised three movers and a 26 foot truck. I received a 20 foot truck and two movers. I did not receive a call prior to the movers showing up informing me that the truck was smaller and there was only two men. Of course I paid for two men instead of three but the communication should have been priority. I had a big move and the two movers I had did a fantastic job. They were very professional and hard working. I did speak with their boss and he rectified the situation by taking money of my move, which I appreciate. Overall the move went as smooth as a move can go. I would use this company again. Their movers have good work ethics.

Loved my experience with Taggabox! Movers notified me when they were on the way. Very helpful and kept a positive attitude, even we were surprised with a few extra flights of stairs at my new place. They communicated with me about where I wanted everything placed and were very careful not to damage anything. I would definitely use them again!

To start off- they saved us hundreds compared to other piano movers. They always responded promptly and professionally via telephone conversations and texts. They gave a courtesy call when they were in their way and could not have been nicer guys. Everything went so smooth and fast. Our piano was well cared for and we are so pleased! Highly recommend compass liberty movers for any moving needs!

Something happened and we had to move weekends to move last weekend and Elote Movers squeezed us end and went above and beyond for us. We are so thrilled to recommend them to everyone we know who will need to move! With a wonderful price, professional, and the speed of moving made the whole annoyance of moving more bearable :)

These guys had their work cut out for them when they arrived. I lived on a 3rd story apt and moved into a 3rd story apt w/o an elevator. They were able to complete the job in about 5 hours which was really good considering the number of boxes I had and large pieces of furniture. I even asked them to move one of my pieces of furniture to storage which was no problem with a reasonable fee. They were nice to work with and would definitely use their services again. Thank you to both of you for making a not so fun move better than expected! Jennie

I almost rated 4 stars because I had to leave a voicemail when I called, but I will say that they called me right back and answered my questions right away. The price Anthony gave me was very reasonable, and they showed up on time. The movers looked and acted very professionally and they had me moved faster and with much less effort than my last move. I'm never moving myself again. I'll definitely be using their services again when this lease ends!

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.
