My experience was very good, from booking the movers to the movers themselves. They showed up exactly on time, were incredibly courteous throughout the day, tried HARD to move some difficult items and even brought a couch back to our original location when it wouldn't fit. High class, would recommend. It's not a 5 star review because they did scratch up the floors on our new house. It may or may not be fair to ding them for this, as we didn't put down any barrier, but they also didn't ask or anticipate it. I would still absolutely recommend them.

I had some challenges with this company before during and after. I told myself I wouldnt write a review because they sent someone out and tried to resolve the issues but I found the screws to my six month old's crib laying in the bed with the baby and I'm pissed. Some of my other issues: 1. Movers left packing materials all over my old place. 2. They changed my moving time the day before. I'm schedule for 1pm, I get s call the pay before saying my move is at 9. We comprise and settle for 12. Movers show up at 11. 3. Despite getting an estimate and hiring 3 movers.. only 2 show up and I'm way over the estimate. 4. My daughters crib was installed backwards. They dissembled it so you'd figure they put it back properly. I recently found a screw from the crib in my daughters bed!! Oh and the side panels are so loose. My guess is they were broken during the move because the crib was new. My bed was also dissembled by them and not put back together property. -guy comes out to fit it leaves out a screw. Overall I wouldn't hired them for anything.

One of the BEST pool table movers to work with. Jason had to make two trips once to drop off the dismantled table and then back again few months later to assemble it. Though he had a tight schedule he was able to get it done for our party. AWESOME work and very happy to recommend his work.

Moving is so difficult, but everyone with Chicagoland Movers did their best to make it a good experience. Everyone including the owners, scheduler and movers were polite, knowledgeable, punctual, and trustworthy. They swiftly moved awkward furniture and were careful with fragile items. They made an extra trip the day after my move to bring my plants to my new house. They even picked up my boxes a few days after the move. I compared value and customer care promises carefully before choosing them and I made the right choice. I HIGHLY recommend them.

The responsiveness from Liberty from the quoting to the scheduling was very good. We specifically waited for the weekend until they could make us the first move of the day. Unfortunately, the day before, I received a call asking if we could push the time to noon instead of 8am. I agreed; but never again. The house before ours gave a 2 hour estimate that actually resulted in 6 hours; not Liberty's fault. I received a call from one of the movers at 2pm stating they were just starting to unload the previous house. By 5:30, I called him back asking when they would be there only to be told that another crew had been called in to help and was assigned to our move; they showed up at 5:40. So our day was wasted waiting for the movers to come with almost no communication on the status. But the crew that did show up more than made up for the late arrival/communication issues. They were nothing short of amazing. Because of them, we would use Liberty again. They were 3 of the hardest working guys I've met. We had an over-sized couch that was too big to fit through the door; they brainstormed, tried different ideas, communicated well with each other to figure out how to get this done without ruining our door or couch. They should have been cursing by this point, but they remained so pleasant and determined. They wrapped all our furniture even though we hadn't requested it. And they didn't waste time; they powered through quickly and got us done in 2 hours. We will be calling them again when we move into a new house, but I will insist on being the first move of the day this time. To Liberty's defense, they are at the mercy of homeowners being honest about the scope of the move, so I understand how things run long; I just wish there had been better communication about it on that day so that we were able to get things done rather than waiting all day not knowing. Despite that, excellent customer service and excellent quality of work.

I would highly recommend Tom and Pinhead Piano Movers for a piano move. Tom is very professional. The move was scheduled quickly and was discounted as we utilized Tom to tune the piano as well. He and his crew arrived on time, quickly moved the piano without any issues. He assessed the piano for tuning after the move and advised us as to what needed to be done. I had no idea there was so much involved with tuning a piano but Tom explained it all extremely well to my non-musician's ears. The tuning was scheduled and completed on time as promised. Tom also discounted the tuning since we had utilized him for the move. I would hire Pinhead Piano movers again without hesitation.

I am very satisfied with athletic movers. I had movers cancel on me via email at midnight the morning before they were to help with a move. I found athletic movers on thumbtack the morning of my move and they responded in a timely fashion and were able to come out that afternoon and quickly finish what we needed done! They were very careful and offered advice on placement of our furniture. Travis and his associate are professionals and I would use them again without hesitation.

Nice movers, on time, efficient, worked there butts off on one of the hottest days of the summer, up and down multiple flights of stairs for 2.5 hours and never once complained and or asked for a break. I had to remind them to take a break. Highly recommend their services if you have to move fast one a budget. The only thing they didn't offer were moving supplies and a truck.

I used Falcon Moving, LLC this week for my 1 mile move within the city. Jason was very quick with his responses and provided me with an extremely accurate quote for my move. Jason and my head mover called to check in with me the day before my move which was greatly appreciated. Joe and Taylor showed up on-time and worked efficiently. They were both very professional and personable at the same time. They seemed to really care about me, my needs as well as all of my belongings. I HIGHLY recommend Falcon Moving if you are looking for fantastic movers at an extremely reasonable price. Thanks so much guys!!!

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.
