My job consisted only of packing and moving some heavy furniture within my home - not moving between homes. RMS came on time, did an excellent job, and communicated with me in a very professional manner. Marcus was an example of what I would look for in a vendor.

The moving crew was very friendly and did a great job moving me out of my home. When it was time to drop my belongings in my storage space, I later found that everything was piled in an unmanageable mess, with tables stacked on my leather couch, which left permanent marks on it. Decent service overall, but I would choose an alternate moving company in the future.

My boyfriend and I moved yesterday into our new place and King David Moving was great. The company called to confirm our move the day before, and the lead mover, Martin, called when he was 15 minutes away the day of the move. We had a move window of 8-9, and they were there right on time. We had three movers for moving a 2bed. We were finished right around 1 or so - under the estimated time and budget. Martin and crew were super fast and very nice. Best move experience in Chicago.

We found Alliane on Thumbtack and within the hour I had a response from Phyllis. She was extremely helpful in getting our in home moving estimate scheduled with Onnesimo. He came to our home, which was super helpful and was able to look at everything to give us an accurate quote. No other company offered this and other companies just had you fill out online forms (waste of time)!!!! He suggested the right amount of men and 2 trucks since we also had items in a storage unit about 15 mins away. Their price beat all the other companies. They followed up on the move several times and arrived on time for moving day. Our team of 5 men was amazing!!! They were quick, efficient and polite. We were moving with a 6 month old and had lots of items we wanted packed in a specific way. We also had 3 big wine fridges filled with wine to move. They moved it all so carefully. They were so wonderful. Everything arrived in one piece and put into the rooms we desired. They made the moving process so easy from beginning to end. So glad I found them...Highly recommend them!!!

Erez and his team are very efficient, professional and organized. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to move a home or an office. They dis-assembled a huge desk unit from one location, re-assembled it at the other in no time. Prices were very reasonable and they have excellent communication throughout the entire process.

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.

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

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.

Travis and his team were EXCELLENT. Very responsive to communication before the move. Arrived 15 minutes early the day of the move. Evaluated the situation and began moving immediately. Came with their own materials and professionally wrapped and secured my items. They didn’t take any breaks or waste any time EVEN while moving to my 3rd floor walk up. I WILL be using them again for my next move. A++ service.

J. C. Movers helped us twice. The first time was for moving across the country, they loaded our U-Haul truck and drove it to our new home about 1200 miles away. We trusted the driver with a key to the back of the truck just in case some items shifted during the trip. They did a wonderful job, everything was loaded properly, everything arrived safely, nothing was damaged. We were kept informed of the location of the truck by cell phone. The second time was to remove all items our basement and garage from our old house that was unoccupied. Once again we trusted them with the keys to the house. There was 8 years of clutter, old furniture and plan old junk. They did the job promptly, the day after I called which exceeded my expectations. They kept me informed via text messages, phone calls and photos sent via Smart Phone. It was just like I was there but I didn't need to be. Nothing was damaged, the house and garage were left broom clean as I requested. The whole process was so easy and not stressful at all. I worked in customer service 32 years and I highly recommend them.

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!

I contacted M.S. Property Management for help moving mostly large items from one location to another, not even a mile away. While they were professional in keeping in contact, they had to reschedule last minute due to a trailer issue. We were somewhat flexible, but already had taken most of what we needed moved outside and had to move it back in the home because the move had to be rescheduled to the next day. When the young men arrived to move us, they didn't appear to look professional (wearing unrelated baseball caps), but acted somewhat in a professional manner so we trusted they could do the work...We had asked for two hours of work, but the young men started wrapping up early and talked about how they had to get to their next appointment. We had to hold them accountable for the two hours and they didn't complain. As for the quality of their work, they did what they could with a little damage to furniture and doors. Some damage could have been avoided, but I would recommend them to someone who needs help moving anyway.

Everything about M&L was just wonderful. From the prompt and friendly service when I first called for a quote to the time they left after moving me I can't think of a single complaint. They arrived on time, completely wrapped everything, placed the items where they needed to be then unwrapped everything. The three men on my crew were polite and a lot of fun to work with. I believe that one of them was the owner himself. I don't plan on moving again any time soon but sure do recommend M&L to anyone!

I received a quote from a well known company and was discouraged to fine out it would be just a hair under $1500 to move 45 minutes away to a new house. I als contacted Vicki at University Movers the king they would come in about the same price. They offered to come to my place and give me a quote. They came within my budget for less than half the price. The three young men that moved me were very professional, quick and responsible. I have already recommended this business to other friends and family that are moving and will continue to do so. I’d certainly would give them an A+ in my book.

About a year ago I needed to move after upsizing. In addition to all of her furniture and personal items, I owned several thousand dollars worth of exercise equipment I needed to relocate to my new home. I confidently recommended Falcon Moving because after knowing Jason for many years, I believed he and his team had the skills + integrity to treat everyone right. Great service. I would recommend Falcon Moving again without hesitation!

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.
