Todd made all of the initial set-up a breeze. He was able to coordinate our move iwth minimal impact on my time and great communication. All the expectations he set for time, labor, cost, etc.. were transparent and accurate. The crew that did our move were exceptionally professional. They took extreme pride in making sure our belongings were protected and no damage occurred to our property. I could not have been more satisfied with how everything went.

Jeremy and crew were very professional. The amount of furniture that they moved in a short period of time beat the estimate that they submitted for our move. They were also very careful with our furniture and walls. I would highly recommend Big Deal Moving for your move!

I cannot say enough great things about DA Lowe Movers. I live alone, and was moving apartments within the same complex. I needed help moving my heavy furniture and boxes and I am so happy I had Deitric and his partner to help. They were amazing. He said he has been in the business for 25 years, and you can tell just by how proficient he was during the move. They arrived early (which I loved) and were finished in an hour and a half and honored the flat rate I was quoted. They were courteous and respectful of my belongings and it was honestly the easiest move I've ever done. Quick and easy. I will definitely recommend them to everyone I know, and I will most definitely use Deitric again for any of my moving needs in the future.

Ronnie and his team really made my move as smooth as possible and was very courteous. He thoroughly communicated his charges at the end of the job just to make sure you knew he was not trying to charge you more than you should. They were great and I highly recommend them to anyone when it's time to move. I'm glad I chose RLMJ for my moving purposes!!!!!!

Really Good work moving. Ran over time because of a previous job before hand, but a discount was given and move was successful regardless. They breakdown large items and reassemble at new location if needed. Quick note they don't move glass items, Guns, or TV's that are not properly packed. Not a big deal for a local move but anything long distance you may want to note to customers. However I will do business and highly recommend

I had an AMAZING experience with Tate the Great Moving services. I used them for packing and moving. I provided all of my packing materials and hired the staff for packing. They packed my materials with care and labeled all boxes appropriately. I then used them for moving from Acworth, GA to Atlanta, GA. The guys handled all of my items with great care and treated them like they were their own. They packed the truck very meticulously and ensured all of my items were safe during transport. Before this move, I moved from North Carolina to Acworth, GA. The movers I used then damaged a lot of my items. Not only did Tate's crew take extra special care of my damaged items, they also made recommendations for how I could have them repaired and in some cases they made the small repairs for me. Dexter, Will, and Shaheed were GOD sent!! I could not have asked for a better crew and I told Tate that I want the same three guys the next time I move. You will not be disappointed with this moving crew. They have an excellent spirit, and excellent leader, and they truly do LOVE what they do!! Two thumbs WAY up!!!

The guys were great! We had a somewhat difficult move today (moving from two apartments on different floors), but the crew was very accommodating. Brandon, the supervisor, was friendly and helpful throughout the entire process. Unloading was the quickest part. I was surprised with how fast it was done with only two men. Hire these guys. They did an awesome job and I'd recommend them to anyone.

I highly recommend MyPorter for your moving needs, they completely exceeded my expectations when it came to my recent move (4/30/18)! I hate moving but have unfortunately have had to make several over the past few years. I've never had a terribly negative experience with past movers, per se, but I had just started to assume companies generally under-quoted moving costs initially and you would end up paying more in the end. MyPorter changed my perception of moving companies completely, they actually beat my quoted time by a full hour! My movers were efficient and professional and I cannot thank them enough for their help!

I don't usually review services like this, but in this case, I just had to make an exception- these guys deserve to be recognized for their work. Moving from GA to NY was my first "big" move, and I didn't really know what to expect. These guys were incredibly professional and clearly good at what they do- not at all the kind of gruff musclemen you'd think movers would be. One guy even chatted with me about the places to check out in NY. Friendly, timely, and efficient, and not a single scratch on anything I own. It was like someone took the stress of moving out of my hands and just took care of business. Plus, the price was super reasonable. If I ever have to move again, I'll be giving them another call.

I have enjoyed working with helping hands far more than I've enjoyed working with other moving companies. There are several reasons why I gave 5 stars without hesitation. Here is why: 1. Arrived on time 2. Diligently handled and wrapped my furniture so that it would not get wet nor scratched. 3. Carefully placed my boxes on truck 4. Did not leave any scuff marks on my walls 5. Did not drop my mirror nor chip the paint on my dresser. 6. Were very clean, did not leave any trash behind. 7. Placed all my washers and screws exactly where they belong when putting the furniture back together 8. Were knowledgeable and experienced 9. Worked efficiently 10. Helping hands were very professional and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. If you are looking for a reliable, punctual, kind, thorough moving company I would highly suggest choosing Helping Hands. I am happy with my decision and i can guarantee you will be also. I will be booking you for future moves. Thanks Helping hands for living up to your name!

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 should you tip furniture movers?

Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.

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.
