Had Move 247 move my 2 bedroom apartment and it was amazing. Great service from the get go and very courtrous and professional movers. Best part was the price as I paid about half of what the big moving companies charge. I'll be using Move 247 again when I need anything moved or delivered.

Capital City Movers is the best deal I had found. Very simple concept of offering moving labor at low prices instead of paying an arm and a leg for full service movers. I rented a haul and two movers arrived with moving gear and immediately got to work loading the truck. They were friendly and really knew how to move and load. Capitol City saved me over $400. Yep $400 cheaper than 2 men and a trucks quote. Ha! Capitol City Movers Rocks!

    I felt that Josh H & Dan F from the Bellevue Shop made my moving experience so much easier by the wonderful job that they did. They seemed very skilled & hard working. I would like to use them the next time I move. Thanks Sharon

    Efficient, friendly, professional. Continually asked how we'd like them to do things - what to put where, etc. Just really great guys. *Note - both days we used these guys, they added a "travel charge" -- which would have been fine but it was NOT indicated ahead of time. (We could've actually saved money w/another company had we known there was the extra charge.) But overall, they were great and we'd use them again.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.
