Had a few problems with timing and the workers getting there on time. So they sent out another crew consisting of Nate, Dimitri, and Will. These guys worked hard and were done quickly. After the scheduling conflict I said I thought I would never use them again but after the 3 guys were done we were happy. I would use Rogers again but I would make sure I could get Nate, Dimitri, and Will as my moving crew.

Julio and Ray were awesome. I had a difficult situation with other movers after they did not show up on time. and they were great at helping me out at the last minute. They were super hardworking and fast and I was impressed by how quickly they were able to move everything down my stairs. They also had a difficult situation with the freight elevator because my building I was moving into was going to close the freight elevator before they were done, but they improvised and got everything up super quickly. They were very kind and super efficient. I don't know what I would have done without their help!!!!! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

They were actually early which would have been great but we were at a different location and not at home. However, they waited patiently and started charging us at the previous stated start time. They were very professional. They reviewed all the furniture to be moved, wrapped all of it, and then moved them without damaging anything. The movers were great and didn't waste time. The only parts that we didn't like was that when paying for the final charge, we were charged an extra $100 and when moving the old fridge to the curb some hinges and shelving were left out. However, after talking to Sandra, the extra charge was reversed back.

They were there within 30 minutes of my requested time and moved pretty efficiently! They were very mindful of our hardwood floors and kept up good spirits despite moving in 90+ degree weather! I also forgot to pick up a tv box and they offered to take it in their car so it would be safe! Would definitely hire again!

Melvin and his team were wonderful and fast! They got me moved out of my old place and into the new place in two hours... start to finish! They were all very nice and polite. They disassembled and reassembled my bedroom furniture with no problems and even showed me how to do it for future reference. If you are looking for a reasonable priced, no hidden cost, local moving company that will come in and get you moved with no problem I would recommend Melvin and Safehands Movers and Delivery System.

Ollie and his helper Michael were so friendly, careful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend hiring them for any of your moving needs. I will be saving their contact information if I need help moving again in the future. They moved two very strong pieces up three flights of stairs.

Alliance was on time and relentless with their work ethic. I mean, there were four guys moving as a one unit at all times. In all honesty, I believe the move should have taken 7-8 hours, as they initially suggested. However, they did it in 5.5. And they actually cared about the property the moved it out of, the property they moved it into, and the furniture itself. Best moving experience yet.

The team was efficent, fast and professional in handling our move. They offered a fair reimbursement for the item that got broken during the move. Overall was good, just in the end, there was some discrepancies between what the owner said with what the crew leader said. The owner called me in the next day to resolve and clarify the matter. Next time maybe they need to make sure everyone in the same page (including the crew, customer and owner). Suggestion : if you tell a customer, if the jobl

They were great. We had a hicup in moving on a weekend and had to reschedule and Joe was completely accommodating. On the day of moving Joe and another mover were on time and even helped pick up the u-haul. We had about 15 medium and heavy duty boxes along with some basic furniture and they helped load everything in 45 mins and was done very carefully. I would definitely recommend these guys for accommodating us even 1 day before we moved and being super easy to work with.

I had a fantastic experience with these guys! My apartment was completely wrecked by a flood and I had to pack and move out quickly. Derek was flexible about the packing and moving day. All in all I was packed, loaded and unloaded in around 4 hours for an extremely reasonable price. Thanks guys!

As stressful as moving into a new state is, the movers and the communication I received from the employees were truly great and eased a lot of my stress. They were quick, clean and efficient in moving my items and no damage was caused overall. Overall I had a great experience with ASAP Movers and would definitely suggest them to friends and family for their quality and fast service.

Travis and his team were EXCELLENT. Very responsive to communication before the move. Arrived 15 minutes early the day of the move. Evaluated the situation and began moving immediately. Came with their own materials and professionally wrapped and secured my items. They didn’t take any breaks or waste any time EVEN while moving to my 3rd floor walk up. I WILL be using them again for my next move. A++ service.

Everything about M&L was just wonderful. From the prompt and friendly service when I first called for a quote to the time they left after moving me I can't think of a single complaint. They arrived on time, completely wrapped everything, placed the items where they needed to be then unwrapped everything. The three men on my crew were polite and a lot of fun to work with. I believe that one of them was the owner himself. I don't plan on moving again any time soon but sure do recommend M&L to anyone!

I received a quote from a well known company and was discouraged to fine out it would be just a hair under $1500 to move 45 minutes away to a new house. I als contacted Vicki at University Movers the king they would come in about the same price. They offered to come to my place and give me a quote. They came within my budget for less than half the price. The three young men that moved me were very professional, quick and responsible. I have already recommended this business to other friends and family that are moving and will continue to do so. I’d certainly would give them an A+ in my book.

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.
