Purchased services to move a two bedroom apartment to another two bedroom apartment 25 miles away. We received two guys and a 26' truck to move all of our belongings. The movers were very careful and mindful of our belongings. During the move we even shared move stories with them. Very personable! The movers even noticed that my wife and I have a lot of art and shared stories and pictures of a move they did for someone who had literally thousands of peices of artwork they moved that took up and entire truck load. It was a great experience all around! One glass lampshade did get broken and the mover told me about it right away, and let me know that he had already contacted his manager about it which I really appreciated. At the end of the move, the manager approached me and reminded me that there was item insurance that came with the move and said we would be reimbursed $0.30/lb of an item that was damaged in this case we would have received $0.60 for the shade. However he was aware that that item was worth much more that $0.60 and said that the company would reimburse me the full price of the shade instead so keep my satisfaction. Such nice people! I highly recommend these movers to anyone looking to move.

I had a great experience with Rob's Jobs. Due to some extenuating circumstances, I called on a Sat and wanted to move the next day. Most movers I talked to said it was impossible, but Rob said no problem. The moving duo of Keith and Victor were outstanding. It was a super hot summer Chicago day and they weren't phased by it one bit. They did a great job moving all of my stuff, everything arrived in great condition. Would highly recommend giving them a call.

The day of my parent's move, our movers never showed up - THANK goodness to Verly's for coming to our rescue! They responded immediately to our needs, the guys showed up within only a couple of hours notice and their rates can't be beat! The crew was very courteous of our belongings and our feelings! They worked VERY hard and it took 12 hours - but they never stopped! They were amazing and I would recommend them to EVERYONE!!

Not only did they keep constant contact before arrival, they where early on a Saturday worked diligently through 85 degree weather with high humidity! I could not have ask for 2 better guys to help us. I would not only recommend them but they would be the first movers I would say to call. The care and respect they showed with our belongings spoke volumes about them.... not to mention even bringing treats for our doggies who were very sad to see them leave. If you hire one company to take care of your it large or small...this is who you call! Thank you guys...

I'm recommending them to my friends now. They communicated well on timelines, all of their interactions were friendly and positive, and they were very efficient in moving out our boxes and large furniture. The movers that came ( Alex, David and Hose) were professional, kind, and were careful with everything.

My childhood good friend Jonathon gave me their quantity and strongly really helpful their identify once I was in search of an affordable and dependable moving company. I known as them and talked with their gross sales workforce about the matter. They were very attentive and likewise asked me some questions to know concerning the nature of the move. They also came at my place just 2 days earlier than the move to check what their movers shall be up against. I liked their seriousness. At the day of the move movers showed up on time. They started the move very carefully but they were never operating behind the schedule. They had been good to wrap, move and store all my belongings at the new place. I used to be amazed after checking my inventory. I did not discover a single scratch at anything!! I used to be also very proud of the amount that I paid for the move. I am certain that this company is among the high three of the town.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
