I've moved more than 5 times in the last 10 years and these were the best movers I have had ... hands down. They moved me long distance from Ohio to NC. I boxed my own items. They picked the appropriate size truck based on a verbal inventory and it was accurate. They also assured me the truck would only contain my items and not other customers. They followed up every step of the way, showed up on time and were very accommodating to my requests. A big call out to my movers, Cliff and John, for being super professional, friendly, and extremely careful wrapping and moving all my furniture. They've been the only movers to tape, pad, and shrink wrap almost every single item! Well done and much appreciated. I would highly recommend them. Thanks! Sheri E.

If you reading other reviews and looking for movers, STOP! 'DONE RIGHT SERVICES' literally saved me and helped me to move an extreme heavy mall kiosk and load it to the truck despite pressure of time and my fault of being late for the moving time. Any other company will leave but not this guy! LOVE IT, APPRECIATE IT, DEFINITELY RECOMMEND IT!

Words cannot describe how satisfied I am with this company. Gary and his team of boys were miracle workers. In 2 hours they managed to get ll my furniture out of the house and moved into the appropriate rooms, They even went through the extra effort to arrange my furniture with care and curtisey. I have dealt with professional movers in the past and not even Two Men in a truck was as understanding and determined s these boys. Even more so every single one of the four young men that moved us were well mannered, highly respectable, understanding and just over all refreshing. Only two things came up that urked me bit. But neither were the fault of Gary or the boys. Every thing was fair and just on their end. 1.) there was a miscommunication about if I had hired them for that day or not. This was quickly resolved by making a phone call to Gary who was more then kind enough to make an exception to come out same day. 2.) We had broken budget. It was inevitable, We had so much and Gary had even told me that it would go over if they continued fter the first hour and by then they already had most of everything down. I asked him to continue. We ended up going 180 over my budget. However I was able to pay him. I'm not even upset. They were worth EVERY PENNY and MORE. They even managed to get my entertainment center down in (mostly) one piece. (it was falling apart anyway) Thank you Gary and boys. I'll most definitely ask for you ll again. And I definitely recommend that if Anyone wants a Job done there is no one better then H.E.L.P.

Marathon movers is a quality moving company at a great price. They all are understanding, ask for a "run of show" to know where to start, and are careful with your items. I recommend to have the house ready for when they come in, so the job goes smoother. The one reason I have not given five stars is because unfortunately they scratched the floor of the new house when dropping off one of the items.

I couldn't be more pleased with Robert Edwards service. I had a lot of old junk that I needed hauled away. He was polite courteous and professional and had my stuff gone so quick I couldn't believe it. He made sure I was happy with the service he had provided and didn't charge a penny more than he quoted even though I would have paid more for the service. I left a generous tip, if you have the good fortune to hire this gentleman I suggest you do the same.

These movers were very affordable and the gentleman that did the actual move were professional and very good! The only reason I didn’t give a five star rating was they didn’t send a big enough truck and then tried to charge us extra gas and mileage for having to make a second trip. In the end, they did right by us and waived the extra cost due to their error with the truck size. I did find it unprofessional that the owner stated more than once that she lost money on our move, which was not our fault. They are a new, family owned company and I’m confident that they will learn from this job and send trucks that are larger than what they anticipate needing in the future. All in all, we were very pleased with this company, especially with the gentleman who did the moving of our furniture and boxes. Great job!

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.
