This was by far the best moving experience I have ever had from the first phone/email contact until the movers completed the job. The movers were the best!! Polite, professional and careful. Treated the furniture as it were precious cargo. I recommend them highly!

Apex Pinnacle did a great job moving all of my furniture from a ground floor walk up to a fourth floor building without an elevator. I thought the price was very reasonable for the amount of time the move took, and definitely cheaper than other movers. I happily gave the movers a bigger tip since the price was so reasonable. I would recommend them to anyone needing movers and will use them again on my next move.

I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Roy was so friendly and brought 2 other guys for our move. We did the move over Labor Day weekend and Roy was willing to wait for exact move date and time as I was trying to sort through my apartment complex not commuting to me yet from that end. He kept saying "I am here for you and I will take care of you". They also maintained their sense of humor while it was extremely hot. I felt they were really working hard and only stopped a short time (which I would have encouraged them since it was so hot that day). I moved 3 times over the last 3 years and paid more money to places where the movers were so careless and didn't really make me feel like they wanted my move to be as easy as possible. Definitely use this guy if you want great service. I wasn't sure what his service would be as his price was so reasonable....but totally beyond satisfied.

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.

Communication with Joseph was easy and reassuring. Our movers David and Rick did an incredible job with the load-in, working efficiently and packing our truck carefully and methodically to keep items as secure as possible for the long trip. Our move was significantly easier because we hired We Got You. -Billy

I never hire movers, which makes moving the worst and always stressful. I have a very old upright piano that has been in my family for 50 years, and while I moved it 20 years ago with some family, I hired QPM this time. All the other movers I spoke with would not give me a quote only a per hour charge and a minimum of 2 hours. QPM gave me an exact figure and worked so well with my schedule. QPM was very professional and knew what they were doing. They loaded and unloaded my upright piano with no damage to either home or the piano. They were quick, courteous, and top notch all the way. They offered to price match but no need as they were the most affordable. I really hope that I never have to move the piano again, but if I do I will reach out to QPM first.

The movers themselves were great- very helpful and careful. Unfortunately it took about an hour to handle payment with Derrick, so the payment process is the one improvement I would suggest.

Travis and his team were extremely professional and courteous. The movers took the time to explain the process and we’re extremely quick. Even when it started to rain they never complained and made sure all of my fragile items stayed in tact. I would definitely book them in the future.

Charletta was fantastic. She made our home sparkle and shine, got all the dust up and out of our home. I highly recommend her for anyone that is listing a property for rent or sale. She had our home shining bright for the open house, and we walked away with 4 offers on our home. I think she might just be a lucky penny! Thank you Charlotte for everything, including coming in on a holiday, being on time and so professional!!!!

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.
