I have been calling movers a week or so prior to my move date. I got in touch with Rogers Moving Services two days before my move.I was a nervous wreck already about my move.Thank god I called Rogers.They gave me the BEST quote from everyone I contacted. They responded to my email immediately with a quote and called to clarify my questions and book the move. I spoke with Alex who was just AMAZING. He was super friendly, explained everything in detail and asked if I had any questions then I can call them anytime. My move went great. They came on time and called me to keep me posted that they are on the way and will reach shortly. They did an awesome job. Very efficient, friendly,punctual and quick movers.I gave them an accurate list of my furniture,boxes, and all the items so I can get an accurate time range. I am glad I did because they finished my move as they had quoted me. I would recommend them and definitely started talking about them to my family and friends who are moving because I was super happy with my move. Best decision ever!

I used extreme movers for the first time. They had the best hourly rates. The crew arrived on time and hustled to get the job done. I would use them again and recommend them.

Excellent help. We approximated our job taking the movers two hours, but they were so efficient that the project took only a little over one. Very professional and courteous. Highly recommend.

They were on time and prepared with all the moving materials. They went out of their way to ask about certain items and were very efficient. The move was really flawless with everything delivered without a scratch and not a thing missing. If you are looking for reliable and honest movers. Safehands Movers is the one to go to!

These guys were great. First off, they were super accommodating when I had to change the move time the very day of the scheduled move. Two guys moved our apartment in 2 hours, including disassembling and reassembling our bed. They helped us figure out the best way to configure our living room which was a little nutty I must admit. And, this is a big one, they managed to get our big couch out of the old apartment and into the new apartment without any damage to the couch or the building, which the previous movers couldn't pull off (and there were 3 of them). Friendly, communicative, helpful, accommodating. I totally recommend these guys. I think, though, that they should get a dolly just to make things a little easier on themselves. :)

I am very pleased with the professionalism of King David Movers which was demonstrated from my very first contact. The movers came on time and were prepared with all necessary equipment and tools. It truly took them less time than what I had anticipated originally! They were careful, neat and efficient. They explain and walk you through the process of everything, so there is no surprises! Plus, on the top of everything they quoted me with reasonable price. You have made my day, Thanks for all your help! I highly recommend them to my family and friends.

I wish there was an option to give a 10 star rating! Earlier this year, I had a horrible experience with M&M Movers who were late, ill-prepared, broke a beautiful piece of furniture because it wasn't wrapped, and then only wanted to give $200 to fix it when the cost to fix was over $3000...and the movers loved to tell us how terrible their day had been. It was a simply awful experience. So I was extremely nervous when I had to hire movers again. Now, I will have Chicagoland Moving & Storage on speed-dial for ANYONE looking to move. They were fantastic in every way. They contacted me quickly. They were able to work with my limited schedule. They came to assess what needed moving to plan accordingly. Their movers were 15 minutes early, simply delightful, were quick but completely thorough. It was the most amazing experience. Unless you have experienced the stress of moving, you would not completely understand how important this experience was for me and my family. Thank you, everyone, at Chicagoland Moving & Storage. Amazing in every way and I am forever grateful. - Lesley Picchietti, raving fan

The Specialists Moving Services, Inc. was fantastic from beginning to end. We asked for an in-person estimate for our move out of a 3-bedroom condo into a single family home. The agent, Joel, was professional and gave us a very fair price even though we were on a short time frame for the move. The four movers came on 12/28 (three days after Christmas in the snow in Chicago) on time and ready to go! Our movers were experts, friendly and gentle with our many belongings. They worked tirelessly through difficult winter moving conditions and never once complained. Our move was a very positive experience. We recommend this company highly. Ask for Jesus and Sergio!

Everything about our moving experience with We Got You was great. From the start, Joseph was quick to respond, cordial, and professional. We settled the details of the job, and he followed up a couple of days before the job just to confirm. Of course, the afternoon before the move we found out that our truck "reservation" through another, unnamed company (u-can probably guess it) hadn't actually reserved us anything, throwing a huge wrench in our schedule. We Got You immediately accommodated the time adjustments we had to make (that's with like, 12 hours notice) and got our move plans back on track. Day of the move was great. Joseph and David showed up on time and didn't waste any time getting started. They were both competent, confident, and strong movers, and in a couple hours easily emptied an apartment that probably took a day to move into (when we did it ourselves with just friends helping). They were also very careful, both with our things and with the apartment walls. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing moving help, and for what you'll get--courteous, efficient, and quality movers--you can't beat their price. Thanks guys!

I never hire movers, which makes moving the worst and always stressful. I have a very old upright piano that has been in my family for 50 years, and while I moved it 20 years ago with some family, I hired QPM this time. All the other movers I spoke with would not give me a quote only a per hour charge and a minimum of 2 hours. QPM gave me an exact figure and worked so well with my schedule. QPM was very professional and knew what they were doing. They loaded and unloaded my upright piano with no damage to either home or the piano. They were quick, courteous, and top notch all the way. They offered to price match but no need as they were the most affordable. I really hope that I never have to move the piano again, but if I do I will reach out to QPM first.

They were ready to be flexible depending on our needs. We only had 1 hour job of moving. And, they were nice enough to charge only for one hour. Every other movers we called in the area were charging minimum 3 hours even for 1 hour job. They were also available to do the work right away in an hour. They worked perfect for us, since our need was urgent. I would recommend them.

We had a great experience working with Will and his team at V1Painting. From the start we were very impressed with Will's professionalism and responsiveness. We messaged briefly through the app and Will was able to come over that same day to provide a quote. We used V1Painting to paint the entirety, (walls, trim, ceilings) of our 2 bedroom condo and they did a great job. They ensured all the surfaces were prepped properly prior to painting and covered all of our floors and belongings from damage. At the end of the day and project they made sure to clean up after themselves and put everything back where it was originally. My husband and I were in a time crunch as we wanted to get all the painting done before we had the movers deliver our furniture. The whole process, from submitting the project to finish, took less than a week. Will was very flexible with the timing and our work schedules. He was always on time. The team did a great job. I would 100% use them again for any painting I needed done and would recommend them to others as well. I have zero complaints.

These guys are the real deal! Called for a last minute move and they accommodated me with no problem! Day of move they arrived on time and needed no assistance to get working. They were fast and efficient! All of my things arrived in perfect condition and all I needed to do was point to where the boxes should go. Above all, they were so kind and hardworking. The easiest move I’ve ever had! A++++

Excellent customer service. Texted emailed me back and forth after 10 pm to help me get situated when I needed last minute movers. The guys arrived 15 minutes early, were courteous, super efficient and handled all my stuff with care. They finished precisely on time and charged me exactly the estimate. My friend helping me move was so impressed, she is hiring them for her move next month.

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.
