Will, Bryant, and George moved my two bedroom apt into a one bedroom (and storage room) yesterday and I couldn't have asked for a better crew. They were very professional and respectful, even moving me in less time than they had quoted (two hours). When we arrived at my new place it was almost effortless unpacking, as most boxes I had marked were in the location/space I had requested (marked on the outside of boxes). Also, my storage unit isn't a huge jumble as they left a small path and stacked everything so neatly. They are miracle workers :) Rogers moving provided me a lower quote than what other moving companies had quoted me, and at the end of my move the total was exactly what I was prepared to pay. Amazing! I will absolutely be using Rogers Moving for my next move. Thank you again! - Kate

The workers were prompt and hardworking. They were able to take apart our furniture and put it back together with no problem. Only downside is our refrigerator got dented a little in the move, which prevented me from giving them 5 stars. Otherwise, I highly recommend them. We hired 3 men and they were very effective in getting the job done and making sure everything was set up the way we wanted. One of the best moving companies I ever worked with.

Great experience with Ollie and Angelo from TLF - they came on relatively short notice on a Sunday, and helped us move some of our bigger items in less than the time quoted by other moving companies. They let us know when they were on their way and arrived a bit early, and immediately got to work quickly and efficiently. Would recommend to anyone looking for reasonable moving rates!

Excellent service, respect, and extremely fast and efficient. I was happy and amazed at the work in moving out of our house, as well as into our new house. Only thing i was concerned about was there was a couple car loads of things that were left behind during the move out. The two trucks wet full though. But all in all i would definitely use New Beginnings again. They are a fairly brew company and i think they give the more popular moving companies a run for their money!!! Hands down the best...really. i wish them many years of success.

I have used many different moving companies and they all seem to be similar when it comes to rates, number of movers provided and liability policies. I found these guys from Thumbtack and decided to give them a try since their rate was slightly lower but the most important factor for me was they had 3 movers coming over when all other companies only provided 2 for an 1 bed move. That equates to getting the job done faster so that not only I save money but also save my time! And oh yeah, I was right of course. They finished up my move more than 1 hour earlier than my previous moves and nothing was damaged. Nothing was scratched. They wrapped just about everything with either shrink wraps or blankets real fast. I mean really really fast. These guys are terminators.. They were really good at following my instructions and everything was executed nicely. I bought them a dozen pack of Tecate for job well done on top of my more than usual tip and they gave 2 bottles back to us to enjoy. Super friendly people. Give them a shot on your next move!

After a disappointing experience with a previous mover, I am pleased to state the experience with J C Movers was exceptional. My item was outside the metro Chicago area but the moving company agreed to my request. They were punctual, professional, and contacted me throughout the process. Highly recommend and would use again.

As a real estate broker, I know how important it is to have good service for your clients at all times. I refer every one of my clients to Carnell, and there are some that have even used him a second time. All of my clients just call me to express their gratitude about the referral, they are always so impressed with his service which makes me so happy. I also used Carnell for my own personal move which went ridiculously smooth, and will for sure use him again in the future, there is no question. If you want a reliable moving company that actually cares about your move, then look no further.

Jay and Will did a great job of helping out with two separate jobs, both moving furniture. Jay was flexible to how we setup the move and was experienced enough to know the best way to approach moving the different pieces. Would definitely work with him again.

I have been using Johnson's Moving and More since I moved to Illinois 3 years ago. They helped me greatly during a very difficult move. I thought I was set to close on a house, but it got held up. The trailer loaded with all my furniture had been dropped at the house, and I needed to get it unloaded. Unfortunately, the closing was delayed, and the seller would not allow me to move anything in. So they had to unload the trailer in DeKalb, load everything into a U-Haul, drive all the way up to Rockford, which was the nearest storage place that had room, and unload it all there. After several days, and many difficulties in the sales deal, the seller said I could move in if I paid daily rent, so back up to Rockford, load up, down to DeKalb, and unload. While they were unloading, I found that the refrigerator was not working, had no shelves, and the ice maker had been removed, and repairs that were supposed to be made had not been done. By this time, I was just over it with that seller, and decided that if they would not agree to the terms, I would cancel the deal. So back they came to DeKalb, and up to Rockford again while I found another house. After about a month, they finally were able to move me in to my house. By this point, I think they knew my furniture better than I did. Throughout all the moves, all the crews James brought out were invariably quick, efficient, polite, and actually fun to be around. But the part I like best about the company is the "& More". I have had them out to do so many other things: gutter cleaning, electrical work, carpentry, painting, even house cleaning. One time they even moved a dinosaur for me. Today it was installing lights, finishing a great garage reorganization, and tearing out carpet. They are great people to work with, they do a fine job every time, and they are very reasonable in their pricing. I particularly like that they don't charge for travel time to the job, because I'm about an hour away from them. On occasion they haven't been able to come when I was expecting them, but that's usually due to a move taking longer than expected, or something of that sort. And since I'm retired, one day is pretty much as good as the next, and they always make it up to me if they're delayed. In short, I really can't say enough good things about James and his people, and I feel very fortunate to have found them.

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.
