Our experience of moving with Moving Pros was nothing short of excellent. Setting up the details of the move with Cole was easy. When the movers Branden and Caleb arrived right on time they were ready to get to work, even after doing 2 moves before ours in 100 degree heat. We were very impressed with their professionalism and the care they took with our furniture. We cannot recommend highly enough and will definitely use Moving Pros again when needed.

We were extremely anxious about our upcoming move after experiencing a HORRIBLE previous move. We met with four different companies in preparation for our current move. Josh Curtis of Courtesy Movers impressed us the most. Josh was friendly and professional from the start. We reviewed online ratings/feedback for each bid we received and Coutesy Movers recieved the most and best responses. Our move was a rather large task requiring three trucks, six men, and 12 hours, and plenty of big/heavy/bulky items. Josh and his team were punctual and repared! This entire team was professional while still maintaining a friendly vibe with not only us, but within their own group. During the entire 12 plus hours, we heard zero complaints, zero profanity, and they took ONE 30 minute "lunch break" at 4pm!! Not even a smoking break!! We are over 1/3 of the way unpacking and have not encountered one damaged/broken item! Our last move (well known national company) resulted in thousands of dollars/multiple items destroyed/damaged. If we ever are in need of help again, we will NOT hesitate to hire Courtesy Movers. Thank you to Josh (boss), Blake (crew leader), Greg, Anthony, Ed, Arthur, and Josh (crew member)!!! We couldn't have done it without you all!!!!

I appreciate the work both the office did in coordinating our move and the efficiency of the working movers. In a business it's a team effort and this company has that figured out.

Moved my father-in-laws belongings to a warehouse. It was a BIG job and I was grateful for their dedicated work. I appreciate everything they did to make it a smooth move. The only thing that did not go as plan was that I requested three movers, but one was not able to make it. It turned out great and I would definitely use them again! Good job guys!

Very impressed with the quality job AFWAT movers did...especially for being so reasonable & fair. I had a inique situation that was a little beyond a typical house move. Other companies decided it wasn't worth their effort? But John worked with me & did all he could to provide great service with fair pricing. Love businesses who aren't shy to think outside the box & go above & beyond to serve their community as best they can ????

Jesse and Mike were a dynamic duo! Jesse returned my call the same day, gave me an honest, fair quote, and was very professional. The guys actually finished under quote time. They loaded our 3BR townhome securely within 2 hours, completing the entire job in under 5 hours. (45 min travel to new home) Jesse and Mike took care of our belongings as though they were theirs. They were friendly and personable, even fielding questions from our inquisitive 6 yr old son. We added some gratuity, which was well-deserved! They helped make our move stress-free and light-hearted. It was so nice to talk to a small business, after trying to get through to many of he bigger companies, who's prices rose because of a short notice move date (just over a week). Not so with this company. Thank you, KC Movers! First class business!!!!

I needed a mover at the last minute and really didn't think I would get anyone to help me out on such short notice. They responded quickly and found a time to fit me into their schedule. They came and worked quickly and was professional and friendly eventhough it was the end of the day. I would work with them again.

Laura B, March 18, 2104 This was my first time hiring movers. And they were great!! They wrapped the doorways to make sure they didn't scuff anything. They brought two movers that were the most polite gentlemen I've ever met. They loaded all of my odd shaped items like my couch, entertainment center, and bookshelves first then loaded all my boxes last. They packed the truck very well wrapped all the items in the truck so nothing would get scratched. Great company I will recommend this company a hundred times over!!!

The booking experience for this was simple - after being contacted, I called the number provided and they were able to schedule movers on the date needed (short notice). The movers that came were incredible professional and truly went above and beyond to care for our items.

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.
