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.

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!

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!

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!

I’m ronnie and I hired Erik and smooth movers for a move on July 28th. He was a life saver. I was in bind and he accepted the job on just 48 hours notice. He was on time and he and his very friendly helper started open arrival. They worked in very high heat and miserable humidity and never complained. I’m very satisfied and they did a fantastic job! I recommend them very highly

These guys are great! Im super impressed with Miles. I ran into Miles at my storage space as he had just finished up a move job and was closing up the truck. I was struggling with moving a piano by myself, and he came over and helped for a sec. I was really surprised at his generosity in helping me, and grateful. I'm typically a DIY guy, but was going to need some help with a move out from my 3rd floor apartment soon, so I brought it up. He gave me his number. I contacted him a few days later and set it up. He sent a quote that was reasonable and was exactly as discussed. He followed up when he said he would and arrived on move night right on time. These men are strong, consientious, and work with integrity. They don't waste time, they get the job done. They came prepared with everything they needed. They were respectful toward me and my belongings, and really knew how to minimize move time and maximize truck space. Both saved me money. I could not have done what they did in days but they got it done in hours. If you're thinking about a move, call and book these guys. Talk with Miles - he will take great care of you. I could not be more impressed, or happy after this move has been completed, with the work these guys have done!

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.
