Karla was punctual to communicate with via text and schedule the moving. The two young gentlemen were 20 min late, but worked so quickly that they still met the time constraints for delivering the items. Overall was a great experience and worth the money.

I hired You Move Me on July 1, 2016 and asked for only two hours of move-time, as that was all my budget would allow. The movers (Bobby and Trellis) were on time, professional, funny, and very, very quick. They had my entire home's worth of furniture and odds/ends loaded up in under an hour and spent less than the next hour unloading everything and even setting up my bedroom for me. Not only were Bobby & Trellis awesome, but Keith was so nice and flexible, even after I cancelled and rescheduled the move - TWICE. The whole experience was wonderful and I will be recommending You Move Me to all my friends in the Indianapolis area. I spent $189 on the move - coming in under budget, and was able to tip Bobby and Trellis $40. It was perfect, and made what could have (and usually is) a stressful situation feel much easier. Couldn't be a happier customer. Thank you Keith!

We decided to look for help moving into a new apartment only 2 days prior to the move from a city 3 hours away. We submitted the info on Thumbtack early on a Monday morning then rec'd an email back in less than an hour, with 2 add'l companies contacting us later. The 1st company, Wii Move 4 U, seemed fine and was able to fit us into their schedule on short notice. We chose them from Alan Harris's prompt response without too much research because we were simply running out of time to research. I'm happy to report all went well. We had "Fred" and "Nick". They arrived in company shirts and worked promptly and efficiently. They were were obviously experienced and used to working together. They had a good system of communication with each other. They were friendly, professional - and strong, carrying our heaviest items up to a third floor location. They made our move in much easier for us and we'd be happy to work with them again. Our money spent for help from Nick and Fred was money well spent! We'll call Wii Move 4 U first when we're ready to move again in 2-3 years.

Austin & his crew came prepared to work. Austin & the other movers arrived as scheduled, were courteous and professional, friendly & fast. All movers were cautious & caring with our possessions. The total time for moving came in under Austin's estimate, from his personal valuation, after visiting our home & contents. We highly recommend & thank Neita Movers for their professional & efficient efforts. Boyd & Loreen

Our experience with Personal Touch Painting has been amazing! We decided to have our front livingroom painted, as we do about every three years. We have used different contractors before in the past, but this company had incredible reviews so before even meeting them I knew I would not be disappointed. They were on time for our first face to room meeting, and within 20 mins we had scheduled for the work to begin within two days with the scheduled completion of one 8 hour day. Keep in mind the room we had painted is the busiest, most visited room in the house at all times with the most furniture. Day of work again began with punctuality with Wesley and Justin arriving ready with all materials, and professionalism. I have never seen a painter previously care about the preservation of his clients belongings as Wesley did. These guys are the real deal!! Wesley recommended using BreakThrough paint by PPG, and honestly my room has never looked so good. Clean cut lines, vibrant color, and it really gives the room a brand new feel. Wesley and Justin put everything back in place, cleaned up work area and finished ahead of schedule by 3 hours. We were beyond impressed and have already scheduled for them to do additional work on our home. I will only recommend Personal Touch Painting moving forward.

Kirk was timely, professional and was able to move my very heavy sectional down the stairs with two 90 degree turns without really even touching the walls. Great job. I will be hiring them again.

Trevor is AWESOME! His prices are very reasonable and he is most accommodating. I feel comfortable having him in my home, as he seems to be a very well mannered young man. Trevor focused on the jobs he was there to do and he didn’t rush, even though later I found out that he had been expected to attend a gathering with his family. I told him that we could have rescheduled, but he said that he honored our scheduled appointment because he appreciated the time sensitive nature of my request. Once all of the repairs to my bathroom were completed, I asked Trevor to move two huge boxes that had been delivered earlier in the day from the porch into the house for me. I offered to pay him but he refused to take my money! That’s going above and beyond the call of duty in my book. If you want someone who’s respectful, reasonably priced and high

I actually had my project work done at my home near Halloween 2017 but the guys weren’t on thumbtack or anything yet but now that they are I wanted to do a review for them. I had them out to redo my kitchen cabinets and counters. They did excellent job and came in under initial material budget and even came back out no charge a month later when my wife broke one of the shelf brackets and fixed it for us. Will use for our next project

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
