I have used many moving companies over the last 20 years. The last time was in August of 2016, not M.S. Property Mgt then. M.S. Property Management was at our home right as scheduled, very polite and professional and the move was done as scheduled and without and problems. Mark and his two co-workers were excellent. It was the best experience I have ever had with a moving company. I highly recommend using them. Thanks, Dennis Eisenhauer

I was extremely satisfied with using M&L to move! This was our first time using movers and I was shocked by the low price and value you get from this company. The movers were early and surveyed our apartment quickly before created the best plan of attack. They communicated with questions throughout the process and we made decisions, collectively, to prioritize items for safety and efficiency. Larry was extremely impressive to me, as the owner and obvious leader during the moving process. He was incredibly skilled at managing breakable and large furniture and managed his employees to maximize the space he had in the truck. Our move was more challenging as the apartment we were moving in to had a hill between the parking lot and the doors. Larry was honest about the increase in time it would take to perform the job due to this situation and updated me throughout. M&L also assembled and disassembled furniture and placed it in the specific area requested. I will absolutely recommend M&L to anyone who asks and will use them again when moving!

I had Josh put in new front doors, new windows and hang drywall and other small jobs. He even assembled a dresser for me which had a whole mess of pieces to it. Everything came out looking great!! He does quality work with no mess left behind. And his pricing is unbeatable everyone else wanted double or more.

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!

Work quality was excellent! We're very pleased with how clean our house is now. Unfortunately I didn't understand the pricing policy (I misunderstood what Michelle told me on the phone) so I was surprised by the total cost. It would be good to spell out to potential customers that the price per hour applies separately to each person who comes to clean your house.

I cannot say enough nice things about this company. I will be using them again and again for all my up coming projects. The staff was so friendly and very respectful of all of my belongings. I felt comfortable with this team. They worked fast and hard. The owner was just as wonderful to deal with. He notified me when the moving team was in route to my location. I have used many moving companies in the past, but none of them have come close to the exceptional service this company gave to me. Thank you again for all your help!!

Mathew and his brother did great a great job on the painting projects I needed done at my house! The thing I liked best is how focused they were on the quality of work that they did. Too many times, contractors rush through projects so they can move onto the next one. Not these guys. They took their time and made sure everything was up to their extremely high standards. I couldn't be happier with the results! I wouldn't hesitate to use them again on various other projects around my house or recommend them to a friend.

    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 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.
