I was moving stuff from a 10'x10' storage unit into a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a 4th floor, with no elevator. The movers did a great job, were constantly moving, and great with communicating the entire time. They were very friendly, patient, and accommodating. This was my first time using movers, and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. I will definitely be calling on Rogers Moving Services for future moves! The only thing I would change is that they didn't mention the $25 transportation fee, which is nothing compared to other companies. However, it wasn't mentioned by them until I asked if there were any other fees. Glad I asked, but again, it wasn't a big deal.

Movers showed on time and worked extremely hard. They did a great job of packing and everything was safely moved. The rate was good and the $100 flat fee on the truck was very upfront. We were going from the city to the suburbs and they got 30 minutes behind our car. However, other than that small detail... they are awesome. Would highly recommend

I highly recommend Keep It Up Movers. They worked very hard, they protected all my furniture before they moved it and install it when they delivered it. They finished within the time that was quoted and the price was as quoted!

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.

The movers arrived within the scheduled hour. They were extremely hard workers and moved me into a 4th floor walk-up with no elevator. They tackled those three flights of stairs with smiles on their faces and a great attitude. Nothing was damaged and they were done very quickly! Thank you!!

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!

The sales people were flexible and friendly. The movers showed up fifteen minutes early, and were done unloading and putting together the piano in less than half an hour. They were incredibly knowledgeable and professional. Couldn't be happier with the service!

The movers who came were well behaved and polite. I lost one belt and trouser so far of what i know. May have been left in the wardrobe box. The packing and handling was very good. They arrived on time. Except the casters for one table, everything else was intact. They even removed a door in one of the rooms to make room for the furnitureto get in and then put the door back. Overall, it was a great experience and i appreciate the work the guys did during the move.

I must admit I was scared and even skeptical. I often think with so many good reviews it’s a possibility that it could be fake. Well, I’m real and so is this review. I had a small one bedroom move from San Diego, CA to Round Lake, IL. There are A LOT of scam movers and I even experienced one with charter van lines. I would recommend to not do brokers because you get what you pay for! I decided against moving with Charter and chose STI. I’m glad I did. They were a bit more expensive but I decided my things were worth it. On the day of arrival they did come earlier than expected on the second day of the 3 day window which was fine with me. My mover was Jimmy and Mondo. They did an excellent job with securing everything and packing it up into the truck perfectly. No damage was done to the furniture or home on the way out and I was very impressed. The dispatcher said they had a 14 business days window for delivery since it was such a long move. That was to be expected and every moving company pretty much said the same. However, they had my things to me within 4 business days (6 days total) which is amazing. They arrived Thursday afternoon on time as scheduled and allowed me to do a complete inventory as they move my things into my new home. I examined everything closely as they moved it inside. Not a box damaged!!! I can’t believe it. Everything was accounted for. Jimmy was at the drop off with a young man that I didn’t get a chance to get his name but both were great! This move was nothing less than perfect. I have not started unpacking and I will update as soon as I do!

Travis and Ivan were a great team! He called the morning of the move to confirm an earlier arrival time, was careful with all of my items, and was a pleasure to have in my home. I would recommend The Athletic Movers for any move you have planned.

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.

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.
