Rogers was the only company that gave me a reasonable time estimate and price for moving my 1-bedroom apartment. While my moving list wasn't long, they still sent a big truck and a great team. The three movers worked efficiently and quietly. They were friendly and respectful towards me and towards each other, which I really liked. They were careful with my furniture and did their best to avoid scratching the floor. I would absolutely hire them again.

They were actually early which would have been great but we were at a different location and not at home. However, they waited patiently and started charging us at the previous stated start time. They were very professional. They reviewed all the furniture to be moved, wrapped all of it, and then moved them without damaging anything. The movers were great and didn't waste time. The only parts that we didn't like was that when paying for the final charge, we were charged an extra $100 and when moving the old fridge to the curb some hinges and shelving were left out. However, after talking to Sandra, the extra charge was reversed back.

They were there within 30 minutes of my requested time and moved pretty efficiently! They were very mindful of our hardwood floors and kept up good spirits despite moving in 90+ degree weather! I also forgot to pick up a tv box and they offered to take it in their car so it would be safe! Would definitely hire again!

Had a GREAT moving experience! They loaded up the truck very quickly and unloaded it just as fast. Moving a 1BR apartment took about 2 hours. Would highly recommend.

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!

My wife and I just used King David Moving Company for the second time now and we can't say enough good things about them. The movers are always super sweet and do a fantastic job. They work quickly and both times we have used them nothing was broken or damaged. Their prices are the best. They were very professional, as the movers were very careful with each and every item. The truck was clean, and the movers handled special packing. Thank you King David Moving, if we are moving again we will be using you for sure!

Everything went well with the move...the guys did a great job. Even in 90 degree heat. The only item that didnt make the move was a glass lamp shade (still trying to locate it). Other than that, all my items in my packed 2 bedroom apartment made it to my new house in a little over 3 hours (an hour less than i was expecting!) I was charged for some packing materials but overall the price was fair. Well worth the cost than moving everything ourselves.

After hearing several estimates I chose Chicagoland Moving and Storage, Inc. for my move from Chicago to Pittsburgh. I am happy to report that I was completely satisfied with every aspect of their service and can give them my highest recommendation. First Contact - I spoke with Kristen over the phone who was cheerful and helpful in scheduling an estimate. Throughout the move she would serve as my primary contact and was extremely helpful and responsive. Estimate - The estimator was on time and very thorough, asking thoughtful questions as I guided him through my apartment. He made a competitive offer and made it clear that there was room to negotiate if necessary. He was very flexible with storage costs. Pick Up - Tito and his crew were on time and quickly got to work. He was extremely thorough in inventorying and packing my larger items personally before having them sent down to the truck. I was very pleased with how my things were handled. Delivery - Kristen was extremely flexible in scheduling a delivery date and the crew was on time and very efficient despite driving over eight hours. All of my things arrived in good condition and I haven't yet detected any damages or lost articles.

They were great. We had a hicup in moving on a weekend and had to reschedule and Joe was completely accommodating. On the day of moving Joe and another mover were on time and even helped pick up the u-haul. We had about 15 medium and heavy duty boxes along with some basic furniture and they helped load everything in 45 mins and was done very carefully. I would definitely recommend these guys for accommodating us even 1 day before we moved and being super easy to work with.

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.

This move has been a changeling from the start. And to moving across country in the middle of winter is just crazy. But the last part of the move was the most pleasant. JD and his staff were a light at the end of this journey. They were fast, Professional and just all around great people. If want you want a job done and are tired of all the drama that go's with moving just call JD Moving and let them take the drama and worries away!!! I would recommend this company to EVERYONE. And their pricing was real reasonable on top of everything else. Larry & Gloria

These men did a fantastic job! They were very accommodating (I needed the truck to come early in the morning and make multiple stops) and they were the only people willing to do so! Moving from the suburbs to the city, they were able to lift all of our heavy objects, and move SO QUICKLY into the new Chicago apartment. We had a time crunch and they were able to work within it. I would highly recommend these 2 men for your next move. They are also very kind!

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.

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.

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.
