Rogers Moving Services gets 5 star rating. I had some unfortunate circumstances and had to move out of my house the same day. I contacted Rogers Movers and they were able to accommodate my move last minute. They were on time, very polite and move really efficiently. They saved me a lot of money and time. They made a very stressful day so relaxing. None of my items were broken and set up everything in my house the way I moved out of my last apartment. The office staff Marcus and Alexander was great. They communicated very well and did a wonderful job setting up everything for my move. I will definitely recommend them to my friends and family. Lastly, I did get some quotes from some others companies but they just didn’t get a good vibe about their service and their rate were really cheap but you pay for you quality and I definitely got quality, Thanks again Rogers Movers and will use you if I decide to relocate again.

I had Christian and Tony , and they were great movers. They worked really hard to get my job done quickly. My experience with the phone person/dispatch situation was not as good. I was not informed by anyone that they might not get to me on time , and they were late. Luckily ! When Tony and Christian arrived , they compensated for the late arrival with fast completion of the job.

Movers were on time and packed items with care. The move was a little challenging because of a small service elevator in the condo we were leaving, but it was no problem for the movers. Very friendly and professional.

The 3 gentlemen were exceptionally professional and skilled in handling all my furniture with care. Before the move even started, they were responsive and easy to deal with online when booking their services. In moving day, they were on time, worked diligently, and even went above and beyond in helping one of us put a piece of heavy furniture in our car that was being sold. They did this without being asked. I can’t say enough good things about this company and the gentlemen who represent it. They will be highly recommended to my friends who are moving soon.

These guys were great. First off, they were super accommodating when I had to change the move time the very day of the scheduled move. Two guys moved our apartment in 2 hours, including disassembling and reassembling our bed. They helped us figure out the best way to configure our living room which was a little nutty I must admit. And, this is a big one, they managed to get our big couch out of the old apartment and into the new apartment without any damage to the couch or the building, which the previous movers couldn't pull off (and there were 3 of them). Friendly, communicative, helpful, accommodating. I totally recommend these guys. I think, though, that they should get a dolly just to make things a little easier on themselves. :)

I had to move one piece of very heavy furniture up three-flights of stairs, so other mileage may vary. The movers arrived right on time (a little early even, but were happy to wait). They were pleasant and worked quickly.

I called weeks ago and spoke with Jason in scheduling a move. Jason was very polite and courteous. He quoted me at a descent price of which I agree to. When the movers arrived on the date scheduled the foreman Esteban advised that the quote would be doubled based on the supplies, and additional services. I was discouraged and angry about this at first and demanded to speak with Jason. When I spoke with Jason he was patient and listened to my complaint . And tried to explain the extra costs involved but I wouldn't have it. After cooling down and seeing the team that moved, stored and busted their butts for me I was incredibly humbled. And realized I was wrong. Esteban, Jose, Chris, Rodrigo did a fabulous job! Jason was great as well. My only suggestion is that as I did share this on the phone with Jason is to have someone come out to the house where the move will take place to get a better idea of the costs involved. Conducting a quote on the phone does not serve the customer well. I hope Liberty Movers will take this in consideration as I believe this will take their company straight to the top! I will hire Liberty Movers again!!!

The Athletic Movers were just what we needed. They were on time (even early) - and did a fantastic job helping us move! Travis & Marlon were very professional, nice, careful, helpful and great at moving our heavy awkward stuff. They came in, asked what we needed, got together a game plan - and moved us in under 2 hours - then asked if we needed addt'l help with stuff we planned to move ourselves. I would recommend Travis and his team any time!

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

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.

Great service! Friendly movers. Affordable. Easy to use. Highly recommend. They took great care of our furniture and our boxes. We live in a high rise building in downtown Chicago and Clutter did a fantastic job of moving us into a small apartment. After they moved us in they went and helped other people move into their apartment for free! They were just so kind and helpful.

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.
