I posted my job for a local move on Thumbtack to begin budgeting. My request went through, well after normal business hours, but I received a quote from Compass Liberty Express, LLC within minutes. Pricing and terms were so straight forward I thought that I needed to discuss the scope. Just one phone call later, Jasean assured me that, barring a hidden piano or some other special item, that they could handle me move for the price quoted and we scheduled the move right away. On the morning of the move, they were in contact early, beat ME to the starting location, started AND finished early. They communicated their status throughout the task and assured me that I didn’t have to worry about any hidden fees or padding of their time. The team at Compass Liberty Express, LLC was prompt, professional and perfect for my local move. Since they also do junk removal, I will be sure to call them again soon!

Tony provided great work and his rate was very reasonable. He assembled a lot of Ikea furniture for my daughter who was moving into a house. The other roommates parents ended up hiring him for their projects also. He did a great job and was very professional and nice. Would highly recommend, and we will be using him again.

I wish I would have did the review sooner. Last August, we were moving across the country and needed to clean out the garage before the movers came. Brian came and went out of his way to pick up all load of junk and come back the next morning for an extra pickup. I was grateful!

I had hired 2 men and a truck. The two gentlemen who came to help us move were Gilbert and Mike. The men were very friendly, focused on the job, professional and cooperative. Although the movers were an hour late but it was okay because the area we were moving from was more traffic heavy - so I would suggest booking them having an hour window for your convenience. We had taken off the furniture, but the move took a little longer than expected - so I would suggest hiring 3 men if you expect more efficiency. Otherwise, the movers were prompt and quick and was patient with any of our requests. Also, we drove with the movers from our current to our new address and they were more or less on time, so was cognizant of time running. Overall, very happy with the service. Will definitely hire AK Logistics in the future.

After getting moved out of old apartment and into my new place, the last thing I wanted to do was properly deep clean the old place, for the move-out inspection. Rather than pay the management company $$ to clean a dirty apartment, I decided to hire Natasha at Top Notch. I am so glad I did! She was right on time, and the apartment looked great! I was able to get through the inspection without issue.

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!

The best moving experience I have ever had. They responded to my request for a quote quickly and then came over with two options for pricing. I have antiques and they were wrapped and moved to a storage unit with impeccable care and quality of service. I will be moving again and will schedule them for my second move. They have the highest rating I could possibly give. Thank you for a great job!

I had worked with Erik for years at an event company where we moved very expensive equipment and props in and out of event spaces around the country. When I found out that he had a moving company and I was in need of having some furniture delivered, I gave him a call. They moved the old furniture to the basement before moving the new furniture in. And as their name says it all went very smoothly. They were on time and very cautious with my things.

Crystle Clean Cleaning Service did a spectacular job for my move out cleaning. She faced some challenges and jumped to a solution. The water had already been shut off at my house so she ran to the store and purchased cases of water to use. She and her team are very trustworthy and do exceptional work. I had to leave early and she sent photos of the finished rooms.

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.
