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!!

These guys are true PROS at what they do. Their level of communication is second to none, I always received a response in minutes to any questions I had prior to move. The fees were explained in detail and there truly were no hidden fees like I’ve had in the past with other moving companies. I can’t speak enough to their level of professionalism and kindness. They moved my second floor apartment to a 3rd floor- 2 flights of stairs per floor, apartment, in 90+ degrees and didn’t seem to be bothered by the heat. These guys are the best and I will be a return customer anytime I need something moved!! Thanks again for your excellent work. It was greatly appreciated and I wish you guys the best in growing your business! -Lilly

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!

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.

Ron and his team are absolutely fantastic. We had a big move into a large apartment, with a stop at a storage unit in between. I requested quotes from five different companies and Chicagoland Moving and Storage was the only one to actually come out and meet us in person before quoting the job. On the day of the move the team was professional, friendly, and super efficient. They arrived right on time and worked hard. We have quite a few delicate furniture pieces as well as nicely framed artwork. They took great care with everything, wrapped the things we couldn't, and moved them safely from place to place. Ron and his company are honest, they give you a straightforward estimate with no surprises. They professionalism from start to finish really inspired confidence which is why for our next move I will be calling them again. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

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 definitely would recommend J. C. Movers to anyone who needs a moving company, and especially to anyone who needs to have a large, solid, piece of furniture (Armoire) moved as I did. They arrived on time and were prepared to begin the job. J.C. Movers were respectful and very professional.

I hired two Bellhops for two hours to help me move out of my storage unit onto the moving truck. Having the extra hands helped to alleviate any stress of moving and they did all the heavy lifting. The entire process was expedited because of their assistance.

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!

Jay and Will did a great job of helping out with two separate jobs, both moving furniture. Jay was flexible to how we setup the move and was experienced enough to know the best way to approach moving the different pieces. Would definitely work with him again.

Well we waited until the last minute to pack. When we went to rent a truck based on how much stuff we had we were going to need to make 2 trips and that just wasn't possible. We called several moving companies and the only one that called us back was Alex at Amerapex. I'm so glad we went with Amerapex they took care of everything from the stuff we didnt pack to moving everything in one trip and putting everything where we wanted it. Alex and his crew are first class professionals, very friendly and polite! Would highly recommend!!

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.
