The two movers NDR sent over were great. They worked well as a team. They were quick, very pleasant and did a great job. The move with just two movers took less time than when I'd had 3 in the past. And this move was about a 45 min drive away. Happy w NDR and would definitely recommend them.

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.

My husband and I found out we could move into our house just three days before Christmas and used Thumbtack to find last minute movers. Sharon contacted us with a list of services immediately and we researched her company. We decided on Taggabox over the other quotes we recieved and we are so glad we did. Sharon was so helpful and responsive and she sent us three movers and a truck by the next afternoon. So, two days before Christmas three professional, polite, and effcient movers moved us from our two bedroom apartment into our first home. We are very grateful to Taggabox for their quick response and professional movers, everything went better than we could have expected. We recommend them to anyone who needs moving services and would not hesistate to use them again ourselves.

I cannot say enough great things anout Ronnie and his staff! They came early for the job, and were well-prepared to move my storage and repack furnishings that the last movers had done such a terrible job on. This team is one of the best I’ve ever worked with- they were courteous, and really hustled to get this done right! Ronnie did his best to give me a righteous deal on this move, and the care they took with my things was exemplary. I HIGHLY recommend RMLJ Movers, and if I could give them a 10 Star Rating, I would! Outstanding job, thanks so much RMLJ Enterprises!

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!

I enjoyed my experience with Bellhops. They inform you upfront that you are working with college-aged guys not professional movers, but that didn't take away from their professionalism. They communicated with me in a timely way from start to finish, worked to maximize my small truck space, and were very friendly throughout the process. I would use their services again.

I needed a last minute move and was struggling to find anyone who could fit me in. Thank God that they were able to get the job done and did an excellent job. One of the movers that particularly stood out was a guy named Gilbert. He made sure that his fellow coworkers were diligent and took great care of my property. I am picky when it comes to my things so if they can satisfy me I definitely would recommend them to anyone else. They made sure that all of my furniture was protected. They loaded and unloaded quickly. They were highly professional, placed my belongings exactly where I asked and even helped to assemble it back. I could not have asked for better service. I'll be using you guys again. Thanks so much!!

We did not have a good experience with MyPorter, however the 5 star rating is for the excellent customer service we received from Roosevelt (one of the movers hired for our move). His patient professionalism & work ethic canceled out all of the negative aspects of our move (inventory documented incorrectly, porters coming/going during the allotted time, van wasn't large enough to accommodate all of the furniture, etc). I would 100% use this company again if he was the mover assigned to the project. Thank you, Roosevelt, for making a stressful move pleasant!

I called Elite Movers for a same day move after a bad experience with another mover the day before. They were very accommodating and within a couple of hours they were completing my move in 90 degree temps. I am extremely satisfied with their professionalism and prompt service. I will recommend them over and over again. Thanks so much Elite for helping me with such short notice!

These guys were great! They showed up right on time and got straight to work. I had a few larger, more challenging pieces that needed to go down over a second floor balcony and they handled it like pros. I was thoroughly impressed by them and would recommend to anyone.

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.
