The guys at Rogers were fantastic. We were in communication before, during, and after we completed our move. The movers themselves were professional and courteous, wrapped all of our fragile items like glass, TVs, etc... professionally with care. Nothing was damaged - property nor belongings. They moved us in under four hours, and were great to work with. Their hourly rates are also far less than other popular Chicagoland moving companies', so we were happy to tip the guys generously for their hard work. We will 100% be recommending them to our city-friends and family who might be looking for a move.

I cannot recommend this moving company more. I was moved by Antonio and Angel and they were friendly and hard working beyond words. They not only moved me in the two hour window, but I know they did everything in their power to do so. Because they saved me money by not going over, I was able to tip more. I had three movers move LESS in more time in the past. Antonio also made a point to keep me updated on their progress throughout the move. One more thing--- they clearly paid attention to the fragile boxes, because not one item was broken. Side note-- This is the second review I have ever written in my life, and the first positive one :)

Apex crew was really great to work with. I called about 6 different moving companies to get a quote and Apex was the best deal. They do not charge for accessories they use to wrap your furniture, unlike other moving companies. The crew that we worked with on moving day was great too. They were friendly and did not stop working all day! Thank you so much Apex for your great service, especially Christopher, Antonio, and Richard who went above and beyond. To Sandra and the gentleman I booked with, thank u!!

Roy and his team at Motion Transports are amazing. I had a scheduling issue come up last minute with another moving company and Roy was quick to step in and help get my dresser moved the same day. “Why put off tomorrow what could be done today”. Not many moving companies stand by this value!

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.

Great experience with Ollie and Angelo from TLF - they came on relatively short notice on a Sunday, and helped us move some of our bigger items in less than the time quoted by other moving companies. They let us know when they were on their way and arrived a bit early, and immediately got to work quickly and efficiently. Would recommend to anyone looking for reasonable moving rates!

Second time using Thumbtack to find a mover. Hired King David Moving & Storage for my move today 1/15/18. The scheduling process was easy and original estimate was close to final total. Scheduled to arrive between 8-9am and even with snowfall today, arrived at 8:45am. I moved all boxes myself and left only furniture. I do have quite expensive/fragile pieces and I was very pleased with their thorough yet efficient packing and moving. My bed also takes a bit to take a part and put back together, happy with end product! Only gripe is they charged me for 3.5 hours and I had my own watch and it was 3 hours. Overall, I would hire Martin and his team again and recommend to anyone moving within the city!

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.

Chano and his crew were incredible. He went above and beyond to make sure that I picked the colors for our walls were in fact the colors we would love once the walls (living room, dining room, kitchen and halls) were painted. He recommended we paint a sample on the walls which I highly recommend. As a result we ended up picking different colors than we originally intended. He provided an in depth consultation, even gave me recommendations to paint the inside of my bookcase so that it would stand out more. He was very thoughtful and recommended we paint certain rooms first to avoid the walls getting damaged after our move in, which tells you he is detailed oriented. Our home was spotless when they were done and they completed the job in record time. Very impressed with Chano and A Plus Decorating. Can't wait to hire them again to paint our bedrooms and basement!

Can I start with saying I hate moving!! Coming from someone that has moved 8 times in the last 10 years--I have plenty of horror stories I could tell! With this most recent move, I needed someone to help me move from my apartment to my newly purchase condo (new homeowner alert!) :-). Home buying has been a totally stressful and really time consuming process and I just needed something to be easy! In steps Derrick! He was such a breath of fresh air! He helped with all the heavy lifting and was very patient with me (did I mention I was stressed? Lol), is a really hard worker who had ideas about how the move could go a bit easier for me. If anyone needs a stress free move--Derrick is your man!

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 sent a request at 4:00 pm, I live in Texas and needed my rental apartment clean in Chicago for clients that were moving the next morning. I received a call within 5 minutes of the request. And she was able to go that same day at 7:00pm. I should mention that I hired a contractor to do what should have been a 2 day job that turned into a 5 day nightmare. The apartment was cleaned prior to his arrival but you could not tell it when you opened the door. Saw dust and sheetrock dust, was everywhere. I panicked and for the heck of it I turned to my friend Google, finder of all things. I cannot say enough about the responsiveness or the amazing job, I sent my sister a interior designer to check the work and pay for the woek. My sister has a little ADHD well a lot and she was blown away when she saw the place after it was cleaned. The apartment was completely cleaned and smelling wonderful. She was great, and the work was the best I have seen in years. I have people clean for me all over the US as a property manager and owner, and if I could I would move her to Texas...if you want it done right call JD Edwards cleaning services, and to top it off it was super affordable. A VERY HAPPY Customer Austin, Texas

They arrived slightly later than expected, so I had to scramble a bit and make sure both apartment elevators would still be available for use. That being said, the service was great, the movers were efficient, and I got what I needed. I compared between moving companies and this was the most financially feasible, which I appreciated. Thanks for your help!

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!

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.
