I was moving stuff from a 10'x10' storage unit into a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a 4th floor, with no elevator. The movers did a great job, were constantly moving, and great with communicating the entire time. They were very friendly, patient, and accommodating. This was my first time using movers, and I couldn't have been happier with the experience. I will definitely be calling on Rogers Moving Services for future moves! The only thing I would change is that they didn't mention the $25 transportation fee, which is nothing compared to other companies. However, it wasn't mentioned by them until I asked if there were any other fees. Glad I asked, but again, it wasn't a big deal.

Just used this company for our move into storage and I was pleased with how polite and kind the movers were. For the most part, they took my directions well and were careful not to damage my furniture. They arrived at the scheduled time and started moving right away. Overall, I am quite pleased with the service I received from Apex movers.

We hired Roy from Motion Transport based on his competitive estimate and excellent reviews. They were able to schedule us with only one day's notice! They moved an antique bedroom set we purchased off of Craigslist from a second floor condo in Palatine to our storage unit in Naperville. The young lady we bought the furniture from at the condo texted me and told me they arrived right on time and worked quietly, quickly and carefully. She said they were extremely courteous. My husband met Roy and his associate on the receiving end in Naperville. All the furniture was padded and all arrived in perfect condition. We are extremely pleased with Roy Rhodes of Motion Transports. We will use his services again.

The service was fast and reliable. My things were moved all the way from my place in Los Angeles to my dorm in New Orleans with no broken or missing items. I found the service provider to be very professional and easy to get in touch with when I needed to. I fully recommend this moving and storage company! 5 stars!

Ollie and his helper Michael were so friendly, careful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend hiring them for any of your moving needs. I will be saving their contact information if I need help moving again in the future. They moved two very strong pieces up three flights of stairs.

The movers were efficient, hard working, and were very careful with our belongings. There was some confusion on their end about what day we were scheduled. In the end, it all worked out fine. I would recommend Alliance Moving & Storage.

I wish there was an option to give a 10 star rating! Earlier this year, I had a horrible experience with M&M Movers who were late, ill-prepared, broke a beautiful piece of furniture because it wasn't wrapped, and then only wanted to give $200 to fix it when the cost to fix was over $3000...and the movers loved to tell us how terrible their day had been. It was a simply awful experience. So I was extremely nervous when I had to hire movers again. Now, I will have Chicagoland Moving & Storage on speed-dial for ANYONE looking to move. They were fantastic in every way. They contacted me quickly. They were able to work with my limited schedule. They came to assess what needed moving to plan accordingly. Their movers were 15 minutes early, simply delightful, were quick but completely thorough. It was the most amazing experience. Unless you have experienced the stress of moving, you would not completely understand how important this experience was for me and my family. Thank you, everyone, at Chicagoland Moving & Storage. Amazing in every way and I am forever grateful. - Lesley Picchietti, raving fan

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.

Movers were professional, came prepared with appropriate moving equipment, and moved our upright efficiently and safely without damage to piano or surroundings. The price was a little higher than we expected for such a quick/short move from front hallway to garage. However, we would recommend this company to anyone who desires experienced professionals.

Mobile Services sent Armani and Thomas to help. They arrived right on time, were super friendly, and ready to do whatever was needed. They moved all of my stuff from a (large) storage unit into my UHaul within an hour, everything was packed securely, no problems at all! Great guys, great service and responsiveness when I was arranging for them.

Charletta did a great job! I needed a light move out cleaning. Charletta showed up and I left to continue moving into my new place. She called to tell me when she was done. The place was immaculate. She did great work even though our landlord cut the power in our place.

Jacob is a very awesome guy. He helped move out of a storage unit into my new home. He was on time, honest, and very hard working. He was able to help me load and unload a 26 ft U-Haul truck pretty well. I would hire them again. He did a great job with my move.

They were very professional and cordial. I truly was satisfied with their services. They met me in the city to removed items from a storage unit and csme immediately to my home to load a trailer with my items that are being delivered to Texas because I'm relocating. Great team work between them and they all had beautiful spirits.

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.

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.
