This was a last minute decision to hire movers. I thought the travel charge was a bit pricey at $120. All and all it was well worth the money spent. Nacho and Ray were the movers. They were awesome!!!!! I have never seen two guys bust there a$$ so hard. They were great and I would recommend anyone to ask for them for there move. Very polite and just great guys!!!! I hope I never have to move again but if I do Extream movers will be getting a call and you can bet I'm asking for Nacho and Ray to be my guys!!!

I wish that we could give SafeHands more than 5 starts! We requested quotes a little late (middle May) for an early June move. Melvin responded right away and was willing to work with our budget to make sure that we were completely satisfied. He even said they are customer-focused and are willing to do what they can to make the customer happy. This is so rare for moving companies, and even in the initial process, we did not have a similar experience. We knew if the move went as well as the initial conversation, we would be extremely satisfied. We had to push our move back one week due to a family situation, and Melvin was very flexible in allowing us to reschedule our move and was so kind and understanding when I told him about our situation. On moving day, the movers called to check if they would be able to come a bit earlier than scheduled. Once we said that it was fine, they arrived about an hour before the scheduled window and got to work right away! They were so polite and professional and kept asking us what else they could move for us (even just small boxes and things we were capable of moving ourselves). They were extremely careful with all of our furniture and spent so much time to make sure that they placed it exactly where we wanted it in our new home. We have a complicated bedframe and they took a lot of time to make sure that it was put together correctly. Prior to moving, we heard so many horror stories with moving companies rushing through the job, not showing up on time, or just being a bad experience overall. Our moving team was certainly not rushed and spent over five hours with us to move a 1BR apartment downtown Chicago to a more residential area in North Center. Moving is not fun, but SafeHands certainly made the experience more pleasant. We would HIGHLY recommend SafeHands movers for any of your moving needs, and SafeHands has earned a new customer for life. Thank you Melvin and team! We cannot thank you enough.

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.

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

Joey was very professional. He arrived promptly. He was very patient with us even though a lot of what we needed moved wasn't exactly ready. He worked with us and got the job done on time. They helped us get through a stressful Moving Day without a huge headache. I cannot say enough good things about these Movers.

The reason why I will always remember this move is the way Pick Up Movers handled this move. This company means pure business. Everything about them was so professional unlike other moving companies who are just out there to rip you off. My valuables were so neatly packed, carefully loaded and timely delivered by these professional movers. I had relocated before but never had I received such great service from any other moving company. Thanks guys!

I am very satisfied with athletic movers. I had movers cancel on me via email at midnight the morning before they were to help with a move. I found athletic movers on thumbtack the morning of my move and they responded in a timely fashion and were able to come out that afternoon and quickly finish what we needed done! They were very careful and offered advice on placement of our furniture. Travis and his associate are professionals and I would use them again without hesitation.

Jacob was phenomenal. My roommate and I moved to NJ from IL and had previously had a terrible experience with movers so we were a bit anxious on the day of the move. Jacob showed up right on time and brought all of the necessary equipment and went right to work. He disassembled furniture on request and was careful with all fragile pieces. Once we arrived in NJ, he again showed up exactly on time. Everything arrived in perfect condition and he reassembled everything for us once it was brought inside the apartment. In addition, his prices are extremely reasonable. Nice guy too. If you have the chance, use him. You won't be disappointed.

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.

Fabian and Moses were wonderful. They arrived right on time, worked super hard and efficiently, and were just generally kind and lovely people. I needed my stuff moved from a shipping pod in Des Plaines to a storage unit in Avondale. The movers who had loaded my stuff in Philadelphia hadn't done a great job and some of the furniture was scratched upon arrival. Fabian and Moses rewrapped my furniture so it wouldn't get damaged any further. They also asked me what my plans were and then arranged everything in my storage unit so it would be easily accessible. All of this was completed in a little over two hours, which was just a hair over the original estimate. I highly recommend these folks!

I have never hired movers before and I have to say that I was VERY pleased with Rob’s Jobs. The movers were on time, early even. They took great care to make sure every piece of furniture was wrapped and properly cared for. I had a lot of mirrored furniture that was moved and every single piece arrived unbroken and unscratched. I definitely recommend them and will recommend them to anyone that I know is moving anytime soon. The job took longer than expected, however it was well worth it in the end. They made my move 1000x easier for me. They unassembled and reassembled several pieces of furniture when they arrived at my house. The movers were professional and courteous. I had been quoted outrageous prices by other moving companies, and even with the “overage” Rob’s Jobs was competitive. If I was planning on moving again anytime soon, I would definitely hire them again. I wish I could give them more stars. I am astounded by what a great job they did. Thank you!!!!!!

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.
