RMS was my first time hiring a moving company, and let me tell you that William, William, and Keywan were absolutely fantastic. In the time we took trying to pre-load and pre-move for them, they had half the things already moved! They were efficient, and their knowledge and care for even flimsy IKEA furniture was fantastic. I'm no longer afraid of moving, because I know I can count on RMS to get it done quickly and efficiently. For context, I had a small local move, 1.5 miles away, from a second floor, 2 bed/1 bath apartment to a second floor 2 bed/2.5 bath duplex. All with crazy corners and tiny halls. It all took about 3 hours, with two pieces of furniture having to be disassembled. To have the most efficient and quickest moves: have everything packed, ready to go and disassembled, and they can get you out and in in 2 hours!

5 stars all the way around. Very friendly staff. I called them for help with moving a very heavy mattress and even heavier adjustable bed frame. Very expensive items,they showed up when they said they would and delivered it with no issues. I would definitely recommend them and use their service 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.

The team did an amazing job! They were very professional, well prepared and great to work with all day. I interviewed a few moving companies and Chicagoland moving and storage was by far the best choice!

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.

Movers were professional, came prepared with appropriate moving equipment, and moved our upright efficiently and safely without damage to piano or surroundings. The price was a little higher than we expected for such a quick/short move from front hallway to garage. However, we would recommend this company to anyone who desires experienced professionals.

This move has been a changeling from the start. And to moving across country in the middle of winter is just crazy. But the last part of the move was the most pleasant. JD and his staff were a light at the end of this journey. They were fast, Professional and just all around great people. If want you want a job done and are tired of all the drama that go's with moving just call JD Moving and let them take the drama and worries away!!! I would recommend this company to EVERYONE. And their pricing was real reasonable on top of everything else. Larry & Gloria

Excellent, fast work. Contacted Tom on a Monday he's was able to complete our piano move on Tuesday (local move). We will be using him to tune after the month he suggested so the piano has time to acclimate to environment in our house.

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.

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.

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!

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.
