The service: Moving out of my 22nd floor condo building apartment in downtown (Streeterville) Chicago to the far north suburbs of Illinois (Winthrop Harbor), with the estimated distance of just under 60 miles, thanks to a little basic research using Google Maps. Details of the Moving (items, boxes, etc.): -8 fully-loaded boxes containing clothes, linens, important books/documents, securely-wrapped kitchen ware (eg, glasses, plates) and small household appliances. The average size of the box was either 20x20x20 or 22x22x22. -3 different sized tables including. I didn't get a chance to disassemble one of them thinking i'd just leave it behind. As for the other two, I took the time to disassemble the legs which I then tucked away underneath the table tops and taped securely in place, thinking I could try to make things easier for the movers by making the process as efficient as possible. -4 pairs of neatly stacked chairs (total of 8 chairs, altogether). -1 antique two-person sofa with a heavy-set wood frame that you simply can't take apart. -1 queen-sized bed including mattress, box spring and frame (which I thought I'd also leave behind). -2 blue storage bins loaded with cook ware and smaller electronics/portables -some accessory items including a tall, long-standing light fixture and a vacuum which I thought about leaving behind as well. -2 overly-filled open-top boxes with trash and garbage -a wine rack and dresser which I actually donated to one of the building maintenance people instead of trashing it Why I chose Apex over four top-rated professional moving companies that I researched about on yelp, google and from word of mouth: Because I was a little pressed with time, I used Thumbtack for the first time and saw a few moving companies reach out to me with pretty reasoable offers. For someone who has moved around quite often, I've learned to do whatever you can to make it easier for the movers from the time of pick-up to the actual drop-off. With that said, I don't always believe in hourly-paid services regardless of industry. There are those who milk the system, providing little service but know how to turn a profit. As a customer, I just wanted to keep it straightforward and honest. I called around, asked for quotes and questioned exactly where each of my hard-earned dollar goes towards. I noticed most places charging hourly rates, sometimes sending over 2 or 3 people to do the job. I also noticed most places charging for 2 or 3-hour minimums. Expecting to pay at the very least, $250-375, I certainly couldn't see myself forking up anything over $650. That's just how it goes. So, I tried my best to make the process very efficient, for my sake as a customer. I kept everything straightforward. I explained exactly in detail what I was moving, how many people I felt could get the job done effectively and what my price point was set at. With that said, I also knew that it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes in driving distance from downtown Chicago to Winthrop Harbor on a good day. To get the most value, I looked at ways to save time on the loading. I had the building manager assist by reserving the elevator to facilitate moving efforts. From the way I looked at it, I couldn't see this taking any longer than 4 hours at most including the driving itself. So I reached out to Adam from Apex, explained my situation and asked about the $100 flat-fee for travel, which included the truck and the distance. I wanted to take advantage of that especially after other places were trying to mark up their prices by playing into the "well, there could be traffic..." and suggesting that it could take up to 5-7 hours, which I thought was a bit ridiculous. When I called Apex, Adam realized that I wasn't messing around. I told him that I really didn't want to spend more than $500 or so. I also told him I didn't think 3 people would be necessary for the job. Realistically, I knew this would take probably 3.5-4 hours altogether so I wanted to be fair and said I'd be willing to pay $450 to get the job done. He was more than receptive to the idea especially even after I reminded him that I'd be fine with paying a little more if needed. So I just finished up with the move-out today, which went better than I even expected. The two gentlemen had arrived at the loading dock, at least 15 minutes ahead, called me to inform me and even communicated with the building manager directly to coordinate the use of the elevator. These guys were very professional and even down-to-earth. We probably could've chatted for hours but we both realized how important it was not to waste each other's valuable time. I felt awful for jam-packing boxes to full-capacity and asking if they could be kind enough to help with the last minute request in throwing the trash out. Even when I hesitated about taking the bed, the sofa and table, they were so encouraging and helpful, making it all work out. They even disassembled the bed frame and treated each and every item with care, which I appreciated. The move itself took just about 4 hours. For the service they provided, it was definitely worth the $450. Everyone has been accommodating with any of my needs and requests. They're very professional and respectful. Most importantly, they were very open and honest, not worrying about getting the run-around that others would easily take advantage of. Thank you again to everyone at Apex for all your help, making it such a painless move. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a trustworthy, hardworking moving company. And if anyone truly wants to know that I am not fabricating my story, you can certainly reach out to me by email. Ed Mangubat email: closetchef@secretsofaclosetchef.com

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.

I have moved 6 times in the last 14 years. 5 were interstate and this 6th was within state. Even then the work requires skill, dedication and care. I will admit that I found "Alliance Moving & Storage" to be the best so far in my experience. I had a crew of 4 from them to provide me & family with full packing service. Overall it took 6 hours but they did a great job, right from being on time, disassembling certain furniture, wrapping, packing, moving, delivering, unpacking & assembling, all with great care. The crew lead Alex is a great guy to work with, attentive and directing as required his team very well. Together they did a fantastic job without breaking or damaging anything in the entire process. I would recommend "Alliance Moving & Storage" to my friends or colleagues or to anyone for that matter, who need a really professional Moving service to take care of their goods, as if its their own, during a move. Very happy that I took their service.

Mr. Sutton is professional and courteous. He responded to our request immediately and provided service the next day! I was thankful for his hard working. He spent almost whole day putting together our huge wardrobe we bought from Ikea, mounting our 65inch TV, hanging 2 cabinets up onto the wall, plus a big mirror. He is a life saver! I'm so glad I hired him to do our work.

My fiancee and I just moved to Evanston. We had a 10 feet U-Haul with furniture and boxes for a studio. From all the offers I received, We Got You gave me the best deal both in price and commitment. Unlike all the other moving companies, We Got You did not force us to commit to 2 hours of service. This was impoetant because my fiancew and I knew the unloading to the apartment would take an hour max. They in fact finished in one hour and thats all they charged us for. Best part is that the 2 members that came to do the unloading were friendly and even did even more by helping us set up the big furniture where we wanted it and putting together things like the bed and frame together. They were also very accommodating because we changed our arrival time 3 times on them due to eoad delays and they did not mind. Overall, excellent Moving Company and most likely if I have to move again within the city, I will reach out to them directly

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.

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.

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.
