Had Rogers help move our items from a nearby storage place into our new home in the city. After moving here from New Jersey, the professional yet easygoing attitude of the movers laid my stresses to rest. They had a great work ethic and would highly recommend them!

I had an amazing experience with my recent move using Johnny On The Move. The two movers we're on time, they had all the tools needed to move everything safely and quickly. They also took great care with my fragile items. I moved from a 3rd floor walk-up with pretty narrow stairs but they moved everything with no problem. I would definitely use them again.

Like most people I tend to stress out when it comes to a move. I've read horror stories in the past about movers damaging or losing things, hiding fees in their quotes, etc. This has lead me to do my own moves in the past. However, I just finished my move with Keep It Up and now I am questioning why I was ever worried. The guys were absolutely fantastic! Consummate professionals and efficient to boot. They were extremely careful and took the time to make sure everything was just how we wanted it before leaving. I would definitely recommend this company for anyone looking to make a move!

I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Roy was so friendly and brought 2 other guys for our move. We did the move over Labor Day weekend and Roy was willing to wait for exact move date and time as I was trying to sort through my apartment complex not commuting to me yet from that end. He kept saying "I am here for you and I will take care of you". They also maintained their sense of humor while it was extremely hot. I felt they were really working hard and only stopped a short time (which I would have encouraged them since it was so hot that day). I moved 3 times over the last 3 years and paid more money to places where the movers were so careless and didn't really make me feel like they wanted my move to be as easy as possible. Definitely use this guy if you want great service. I wasn't sure what his service would be as his price was so reasonable....but totally beyond satisfied.

King David movers exceeded our expectations. They were kind, friendly people who got the job done swiftly and with great care. They ran about a half hour late, but their work along with great attitudes made up for that small hiccup. We would definitely keep them in mind for our next move!

The movers were efficient, hard working, and were very careful with our belongings. There was some confusion on their end about what day we were scheduled. In the end, it all worked out fine. I would recommend Alliance Moving & Storage.

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.

My boss needed a large china cabinet moved from one apartment building to another with very short notice. I got a quick reply from We Got You and was able to book a move for a couple days later for a good price. My boss said the move went fine, movers did a good job, friendly, etc. She said it made her nervous that the cabinet wasn't covered with blankets during the move, which I had requested during booking. Would use again, especially given quick reply and short notice move.

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

A couple of days ago. I called Liberty Movers in a panic! I had too move three 10 by 10 storage units! I called and Jason picked up. He said Tuesday (the next day) would be fine! He sent the confirmation papers. Later during the 10pm news. I found out Thunder storms and rain! Didn't want too damage my new hardwood floors so I postponed until Thursday, a much dryer day. Jason reschedule for me. The crew of Esteban,Rodrigo, and Noe were FANTASTIC! Ran into a moving logistics which Esteban came up with a resolution! His team was very efficient! Here's the best part the estimate was lower than Esteban provided! I was so impressed with his team work ethics, I gave the entire team a tip! Liberty Movers & Storage is best in class! You got my business!

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.
