These guys are timely and efficient. They finished my 1 bedroom move + few other things in the living room/TV/bike in ~2 hours from north side of Chicago to South Loop which is what was estimated. I had the smoothest move I have had in Chicago so far and I have moved every year for the past 6 years. I highly recommend using their services for any move!

I work for an online auction company that sometimes has to pick up assets in whatever city they might be in and store them until they're sold. I usually have no issues doing this on a daily basis, but in this case, I did. However, Adam was more than helpful assisting with the logistics and taking an unprecedented role as a mover and going above and beyond to assist more so than any other I have worked with across the country. I highly recommend you to use Apex for personal, business moves and any other services needed. They know their worth charge a reasonable rate and after having them move our auction items it makes you realize, it may not be just money but you will always pay more if you hire the wrong guys. These are the right guys for the job and I will be using them in the future for moves in the Chicago area.

We hired this service to move a large sectional sofa and a very heavy coffee table from one house to another. The 2 men were professional, courteous, and completed the job without any damage to the furniture and within the 2 hours they proposed, so they came in on-budget. I would definitely hire this service again.

These people were AMAZING! They did their research and asked for photos to safely move my stuff without damaging my house. They had an action plan ready when they arrived and everything went well. My Item was a massive 200 plus gallon fish tank made of GLASS!!! it weighed a ton and they safely moved it across town and in my house and down a flight of stairs. If they can safely move this, they can move anything.

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 hired TLF services to move our furniture to a different apartment in the same building. The movers were punctual, very friendly, took extreme care in assembling and disassembling furniture, also moved it around a bit for us to see decoration wise and finished the job well within the time limit. I will definitely hire TLF services again.

My boyfriend and I moved yesterday into our new place and King David Moving was great. The company called to confirm our move the day before, and the lead mover, Martin, called when he was 15 minutes away the day of the move. We had a move window of 8-9, and they were there right on time. We had three movers for moving a 2bed. We were finished right around 1 or so - under the estimated time and budget. Martin and crew were super fast and very nice. Best move experience in Chicago.

What an absolutely treat! This is my 11th move since 2003 and this crew were the best I have ever used. They were running a few minutes late because of traffic and quickly gave me a call to let me know . It was a rainy day move, and they had big smiles on their faces and we enjoyed some quitting back and forth banter. I won’t be moving any time soon but I can recommend them without hesitation. They also finished ahead of schedule and under budget 👍🏻👍🏻

I hired 'We Got You' to help me move all the heavy furniture from one condo to another within the same building. 5 stars because Joey did everything he said he would do throughout the whole process. 1. Told me he would call me - then he called me. 2. Told me he would show up at 9am on Saturday. I went to the lobby of my building at 8:55 and got a coffee- they walked in the door at 9am - right on the button. 3. Said they could handle all the furniture and would take good care of it - and they did. Took great care with all the throw pillows to the couch and chairs for the table. Did the same with the television and entertainment center. Great guys - great move. Worth every penny.

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.

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.

Jay and the crew was extremely well organized starting from booking the move to the very end. The move was scheduled and executed to perfection. There were no hidden costs, tardiness, and they had a great attitude towards the move. They were also really nice, and efficient. I would strongly recommend them.

My room was a disaster before Tilly came in and helped me out! I had clothes everywhere, bags and boxes filled with miscellaneous items and kitchen gadgets without a spot. She came in and organized everything and make my closet functional again! I definitely plan on hiring her again when I move to help me get rid of some of the things that I don't need anymore.

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.
