Julio and Ray were awesome. I had a difficult situation with other movers after they did not show up on time. and they were great at helping me out at the last minute. They were super hardworking and fast and I was impressed by how quickly they were able to move everything down my stairs. They also had a difficult situation with the freight elevator because my building I was moving into was going to close the freight elevator before they were done, but they improvised and got everything up super quickly. They were very kind and super efficient. I don't know what I would have done without their help!!!!! HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

We were moving from a 800sq. ft. condo in northside Chicago to a townhome in southwest suburban Chicago. I wrapped and packed all the boxes with bubblewrap & paper, tagged ones that were fragile. Items included in the move were: 1x Queen size bed & mattress 1x Armoire 1x 3 seater couch 1x dining table 4x chairs 1x 47" flatscreen TV 1x 9 cube organized 6x luggage bags 24x boxes Having moved multiple times I had an idea of how the move would be executed. Apex sent 3 guys & a truck with supplies. I offered to use some of my moving supplies. The move was well executed. The guys were very friendly & respectful and knew what they were doing. In order to be efficient, everything was wrapped, trips up/down the freight elevator was planned to carry as much as they can and not waste time or overload themselves. During the move, they were careful not to damage any property both in the condo as well as the townhome. A little planning & prep on my end as well as their experience & effort helped us complete our move in under 6hours. I would reach out to them again for any future needs or recommendations. Thank you!

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!

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.

I was scheduled for a move with another moving company and those movers cancelled. I was able to contact A New Beginning movers at the very last minute for an immediate move and transport of her belongings into storage. Although they didn't arrive on the time that we agreed on (I was told that they had another job before our moving appointment). Once they arrived, they were very professional and treated our items with care as they were packed, transported and placed into storage. Jamal (company mover) and his team were very professional and courteous. I would consider and recommend them for any future moving needs. Thanks!

Chicagoland staff from owners to staff made my move so easy. I needed a short but quick turnaround and they delivered. On moving day the crew called ahead and sowed up on time. Erick and Carlos were fast, efficient and really careful with my belongs. The furniture was covered with blankets and wrapped for protection. Nothing broken or damaged in the move. Chicagoland Moving and Storage will get my business again for future moving needs - near or far.

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.

First and foremost, they were very prompt to respond to my initial inquiry and helped me out when the app booked the incorrect time. They showed up on time and worked very hard for the time that I needed them. They were polite and also were overly cautious with my things, making sure to wrap them well before packing. I would definitely use them again and would high recommend them to anyone needing help moving within the Chicago area.

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.

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.

They showed up on time (early, actually) and were very thorough and helpful with everything I needed. The rates are probably some of the lowest in Chicago. My only advice is when you are given a quote for 2-3 hours, unless you are moving VERY close and have almost no belongings, definitely expect it to go an extra hour.

I did a 2 person moving crew with John and Kelly. They were very punctual and ready to go as soon as I arrived. They both did a great job accommodating the presence of my 2 young sons as they moved. They were fast, efficient workers and very polite. They fit all of my items in one trip with a truck and caused no damage to the numerous fragile items I had. If you're looking for a hard working and accommodating crew of movers at a great price I strongly recommend Moving Mountains Inc.

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.
