The moving crew was very friendly and did a great job moving me out of my home. When it was time to drop my belongings in my storage space, I later found that everything was piled in an unmanageable mess, with tables stacked on my leather couch, which left permanent marks on it. Decent service overall, but I would choose an alternate moving company in the future.

These guys are true PROS at what they do. Their level of communication is second to none, I always received a response in minutes to any questions I had prior to move. The fees were explained in detail and there truly were no hidden fees like I’ve had in the past with other moving companies. I can’t speak enough to their level of professionalism and kindness. They moved my second floor apartment to a 3rd floor- 2 flights of stairs per floor, apartment, in 90+ degrees and didn’t seem to be bothered by the heat. These guys are the best and I will be a return customer anytime I need something moved!! Thanks again for your excellent work. It was greatly appreciated and I wish you guys the best in growing your business! -Lilly

Alliance was the best moving experience, from the first phone call to the final handshake. I found them using Thumbtack, and within the first hour of submitting my request, I was contacted by Phyllis to schedule an on-site estimation. We scheduled a date and time that worked, and on that date, right on time, they showed up and gave me a very thorough in-person review of everything I'd need packed and shipped. They were the only moving company who came out for an in-person estimate (others either just wanted a list of things, or did a "virtual" estimate, but Alliance went that extra miles to really see for themselves what we needed to move, helping us feel confident we were on the same page for the quote.) We had a special situation that would spread our move out over several days, requiring us to store items on their truck (essentially locking up one of their trucks for a couple nights, preventing them from using it) and they offered me a very reasonable quote for all the services, including storage. We called no fewer than 6 other moving companies, and despite other companies having more "word of mouth" recommendations from friends, nobody was able to meet or beat Alliance's service and quote - and this was even BEFORE any actual moving started. We just felt the most comfortable and cared for with Alliance, so we went with them. Absolutely no regrets - they made what was a stressful move into a breeze. The team came in, packed up everything that was odd-shaped like lamps and mirrors, and were very careful with my already-packed delicate items and breakable kitchen stuff. They had our 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom (3rd floor WALKUP) condo cleared out within 4 hours, and with smiles on all of their faces. They even were so sweet to our two dogs; I even loved the shirts they wore that said "If your dog doesn't like someone, maybe you shouldn't either" or something like that - well, our dogs were very comfortable with them despite the stressful situation of strangers taking away all of their stuff! That's how you know they're good guys :) Two days later, they rolled up again, and had our new house moved in within 3 hours again. The final bill came in under-budget and 100% perfect - nothing scratched, broken, or damaged. I would recommend Alliance to anyone looking for movers who care, who really focus on customer service from start to finish, and who really go that extra mile to make your move less stressful. Let's face it, moving sucks, but Alliance is the best at making it an actually pleasant experience. Thank you Alliance!

After hearing several estimates I chose Chicagoland Moving and Storage, Inc. for my move from Chicago to Pittsburgh. I am happy to report that I was completely satisfied with every aspect of their service and can give them my highest recommendation. First Contact - I spoke with Kristen over the phone who was cheerful and helpful in scheduling an estimate. Throughout the move she would serve as my primary contact and was extremely helpful and responsive. Estimate - The estimator was on time and very thorough, asking thoughtful questions as I guided him through my apartment. He made a competitive offer and made it clear that there was room to negotiate if necessary. He was very flexible with storage costs. Pick Up - Tito and his crew were on time and quickly got to work. He was extremely thorough in inventorying and packing my larger items personally before having them sent down to the truck. I was very pleased with how my things were handled. Delivery - Kristen was extremely flexible in scheduling a delivery date and the crew was on time and very efficient despite driving over eight hours. All of my things arrived in good condition and I haven't yet detected any damages or lost articles.

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!

Brian did an absolutely stellar job assembling an IKEA shelving unit & table. He immediately took his shoes off upon entering the house so he wouldn't track anything in - without my asking him to. He also moved existing furniture around to accommodate the new pieces. He took his time and did things the right way the first time - there were no mistakes in his work. I strongly recommend Brian for any furniture assembly jobs you may have.

They handled all of or pre-packed boxes and all our furniture with care. We have some exspensive pieces and had a negative experience with a previous move/moving company, so it was refreshing to have a good experience. There was great communication throughout, and did an excellent job fitting everything into our storage unit. The only problem, was we planned to pay by credit card. We were told by the office that was fine a few days in advance, and that there would be a 3% charge, which we were ok with. The head mover told us this was fine when he arrived, then proceeded to have us fill out the paperwork. At the end of the move he then came to us and said he couldn't get ahold of the office and we'd have to pay by cash. He said if we didn't pay by cash we'd have to wait endlessly to hear back from the office. We didn't believe what he was saying, but obliged because we were on a time constraint. We felt a little scammed and are now unsure if we will use them again when we complete the second part of our move this summer. We'd probably require written communication from them, that we will exclusively pay by card and there will not be any other options the day of.

I cannot believe I am actually posting a positive review about a moving company!! I have moved so many times over the last ten years and there is ALWAYS a problem - shady characters trying to take advantage with pricing, movers hounding you for a tip, showing up late, or just nasty attitudes. However, In Demand Movers is LEGIT!! Lee was open and upfront about pricing. They confirmed they were coming the day before. They showed up on time and even called to let me know they were on their way. Javy and his team were OUTSTANDING for the entire move. They were the friendliest and hard-working group of young men I have met in a long time. It was absolutely freezing the day of our move (10 degrees out at best) and they acted as if it was 75 degrees and sunny outside - they did not let the weather impact their mood or our move. I am telling you, they were terrific. Not only were they helpful and friendly, the finished on-time and at the estimated price!! How about that??!! The only thing I would fix - and to be clear the guys had no idea about this - was their truck was leaking oil and left a stain on my driveway. Again, they did not know and I saw it after they left. I am not someone who often posts stuff, but Lee, Javy, and their team were awesome. I HIGHLY recommend using them!!

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.

I have used many moving companies over the last 20 years. The last time was in August of 2016, not M.S. Property Mgt then. M.S. Property Management was at our home right as scheduled, very polite and professional and the move was done as scheduled and without and problems. Mark and his two co-workers were excellent. It was the best experience I have ever had with a moving company. I highly recommend using them. Thanks, Dennis Eisenhauer

My experience with University Movers could not have been better. They were flexible with their scheduling, showed up right on time, worked steadily and efficiently and were careful with everything that had to be moved. Nothing was harmed in the move and everything ended up in the correct locations throughout the house that was being moved into. Their pricing was very affordable (which was great since I was on a tight budget) and in comparison to other moving companies, you cannot find a better value for your money. I don't have a single complaint and would highly suggest using them for your future moving needs!

Good price, quick, and very personable and professional! Rob is leaps and bounds better than other major moving companies I’ve hired. He’s affordable and extremely professional. They make sure all your stuff is moved carefully and nothing gets damaged. They go above and beyond to give the best service. They finished moving me in early and offered to help us move into our storage unit as well. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I was referred to Jason by my leasing consultant when I was planning a move to my current apartment back in June. Jason is very friendly and detail-oriented. He came to my old apartment and did an estimate, he clearly explained the breakdown of the estimate. I must say he and his team went above and beyond. The one and only elevator at my new place was under maintenance during my move, Jason did not charge me extra for that. He did most of the leg work moving my furnitures and boxes up 4 levels! I bet he lost couple lbs after that day hehe! Without him and his team, my move would not have been that smooth and efficient. That was why I referred him to my friend in July, and I am sure they took great care of her! Thank you once again for all the hard work, Jason! You guys are more than amazing! I will definitely recommend you to my friends, and if I move again, you are definitely my go-to person!

Charlie and Evan were delightful, hardworking and so very careful with my furniture. They treated it as if the items were their own. I recommend this company highly. They are the best I have ever seen. Randy, who scheduled my move was friendly, efficient and very prompt when I had a question. Not many companies like this one!

    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.
