Super fast and professional guys. They were able to get my one bedroom apartment down three flights of stairs and moved into my new apartment in exactly two hours. It was my first time using movers and I can never go back. Definitely using Rogers Moving Services for my next move! Shout out to David, Norris, and Isaiah for all of their hard work!

From the time that I contacted Apex to the time my move was over I had a great experience. The movers, George & Alex, were very professional and friendly. I am very satisfied and will definitely use Apex again if I have to move.

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.

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 service was great... They arrived promptly and went directly to work... I used several different movers in the past but none of those moves have ever went this smoothly... I gave the guys a generous tip which wasn't expected but always appreciated by service industry employees... I will definitely use this team for future moves and highly recommend them to friends and family... Thanks again for your service and keep up them great work team...

Pick Up Movers has a very good reputation. So, naturally, I hired them for my move. They didn’t disappoint me. Their quote was quite reasonable and the customer service was very thorough. The movers arrived right on time and were very well equipped. They showed amazing skills and creativity at packing all my stuffs. Even their workmanship was impeccable. I had scheduled them to deliver my belongings 5 days later. All my valuables traveled very well and everything was intact. I truly believe that these guys are the best in business.

Our experience with Gabriel & Jeff of Move Mania was excellent. The crew was punctual, professional, respectful & accommodating to our needs. This is our first experience with a moving company. In two previous years, we moved ourselves. This is by far a great experience. Move Mania will now be our preferred movers. Thank you Gabriel & Jeff.

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use again.

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 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.
