Melvin and his team were wonderful to work with. Though the move did not go as planned, I was impressed with how they dealt with the challenges, and everything worked out great in the end. I will call them again next time I need movers. I highly recommend SafeHands Movers.

I had some challenges with this company before during and after. I told myself I wouldnt write a review because they sent someone out and tried to resolve the issues but I found the screws to my six month old's crib laying in the bed with the baby and I'm pissed. Some of my other issues: 1. Movers left packing materials all over my old place. 2. They changed my moving time the day before. I'm schedule for 1pm, I get s call the pay before saying my move is at 9. We comprise and settle for 12. Movers show up at 11. 3. Despite getting an estimate and hiring 3 movers.. only 2 show up and I'm way over the estimate. 4. My daughters crib was installed backwards. They dissembled it so you'd figure they put it back properly. I recently found a screw from the crib in my daughters bed!! Oh and the side panels are so loose. My guess is they were broken during the move because the crib was new. My bed was also dissembled by them and not put back together property. -guy comes out to fit it leaves out a screw. Overall I wouldn't hired them for anything.

One of the BEST pool table movers to work with. Jason had to make two trips once to drop off the dismantled table and then back again few months later to assemble it. Though he had a tight schedule he was able to get it done for our party. AWESOME work and very happy to recommend his work.

Moving is so difficult, but everyone with Chicagoland Movers did their best to make it a good experience. Everyone including the owners, scheduler and movers were polite, knowledgeable, punctual, and trustworthy. They swiftly moved awkward furniture and were careful with fragile items. They made an extra trip the day after my move to bring my plants to my new house. They even picked up my boxes a few days after the move. I compared value and customer care promises carefully before choosing them and I made the right choice. I HIGHLY recommend them.

The 2 moving men that showed up were great. They called on their way so we had a hard start time and had little discussion - straight to work. They picked up quickly on the system I wanted to use to move in furniture and were moving ahead of me quickly. They did little extras that were not asked of them which I appreciate. The movers were also extremely polite and took great care not to damage the furniture or the house. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mobile Services Moving Assembly Delivery. Kc

I would highly recommend Tom and Pinhead Piano Movers for a piano move. Tom is very professional. The move was scheduled quickly and was discounted as we utilized Tom to tune the piano as well. He and his crew arrived on time, quickly moved the piano without any issues. He assessed the piano for tuning after the move and advised us as to what needed to be done. I had no idea there was so much involved with tuning a piano but Tom explained it all extremely well to my non-musician's ears. The tuning was scheduled and completed on time as promised. Tom also discounted the tuning since we had utilized him for the move. I would hire Pinhead Piano movers again without hesitation.

Nice movers, on time, efficient, worked there butts off on one of the hottest days of the summer, up and down multiple flights of stairs for 2.5 hours and never once complained and or asked for a break. I had to remind them to take a break. Highly recommend their services if you have to move fast one a budget. The only thing they didn't offer were moving supplies and a truck.

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.
