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!!!

First, I loved the quick response time! I decided last minute that I wanted to hire movers and Deitric contacted me ready to go! They arrived promptly, evaluated our items and found the quickest route to get everything loaded & unloaded. The price was as quoted and everything went smoothly. I would definitely hire again!

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.

I was very impressed with the RLMJ movers. They were extremely quick to load the truck, were very kind, and worked around some really tight parking/entrance issues. As well, they were very careful with my belongings and made me feel very comfortable throughout the move. I would definitely hire them again, and would recommend them to anyone.

I hired In and Out Movers for a local move from a one bedroom apartment on the first floor to another one bedroom apartment about 3.6 miles away that is on the second floor. Vladimir and Richy were my movers and arrived on time around 9am. Very nice guys and handled my belongings with care. Vladimir even fixed a dresser leg that was already broken from a previous move, but he wanted to make sure that I wouldn't have any issues with it in the future. They moved in the last piece of furniture right at the 2 hour mark so that I wouldn't have to pay extra. I tipped them well because they did a great and efficient job. I've read some reviews that said that the workers were rude, slow, and asked for tips. I did NOT have this experience at all. Vladimir and Richy were polite, quick, and never mentioned a tip. Also when I first called to schedule an appointment, Carlos, the owner, immediately told me about the Groupon special that they were running. I thought that was nice of him to do because he could have not said anything and I would have paid their regular rate. I am happy with my moving experience with In and Out Movers and would definitely use them again as well as recommend them to others. Thank you guys for hard work and help! SA

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!

Best moving experience I've had. Curtis and team (including Adrian) were fantastic. Beyond being really nice and responsible guys, they were incredibly responsive and professional, which was great because we had several changes all the way up to the day before the move. I was very impressed with how together this company is, considering how new they are. You would think this company had been around for years. We had a cross country (GA to MN) move with a car in tow and two drop off locations at the end of the trip and they had all the correct documents we needed right away (e.g., insurance for both vehicle/tow and transit and contents of the move, contract, etc). They were also very quick but CAREFUL. I have had many bad experiences with movers thinking the only thing that matters is time (since that is the only thing that may matter to them when there is a flat rate). With some other movers I've used, they don't read box labels or rush through moving fragile furniture and then leave before you can even notice they've damaged everything. With HH, everything was handled with care including the house we were moving from and (very small) apartment we were moving to, and very importantly, the truck was packed very thoughtfully. It was a larger truck that was only half full, but everything was tied down and stored to protect each item and its neighbors. This may sound like common sense, but when you have movers that are tight on time and the move is taking longer than thought (which this one did), things end up just getting thrown on the truck without much thought and that's where stuff gets damaged. As Curtis explained to me, you get a completely different level of care and consideration when you have movers who are their company (Curtis is the owner). It is their reputation and their dollar if a customer is unhappy or something gets damaged. And yes, they are priced very fairly - about a third of what two movers and truck would charge you and in line with other smaller companies. I hope this review helps convince someone else to go with HH - again they are newer so don't have a huge online footprint, but this is a real review from a real very satisfied customer (beware of people on google who post phony, reviews for pay, there are a lot out there). Will be posting this same review on u-Haul's website. I couldn't recommend this company more!

The Precious Cargo movers were awesome! I had 3 movers for a large one bedroom apt with loft that was my daughter's bedroom. We had about 24 pieces of furniture counting w/d and patio furniture. They were extremely organized and professional. I had a LOT of bags and they even moved the bags along with any other miscellaneous items. We lost time in traffic but they still worked to the last second! They unpacked me in the nick of time and assembled beds and unloaded truck. This saved me extra expense because I budgeted a four-hour move but it was five hours. I will definitely use them again. Terri

Couldn’t be more happy. Corey is very professional and courteous. Job was scheduled several days out at my request and Corey communicated throughout the week. Arrived on time, very efficient but took extra care moving a leather furniture set. Wrapped furniture and tightly secured everything for transport. Provided me with exact rate and didn’t attempt any bait and switch tactics like other movers tried to do. I would definitely hire again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to friends and family. Appreciate you!

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.
