Outstanding service. I was moving and needed some help. Even though I wasn't moving a house to a house they provided excellent professionalism and they're quick. I'll definitely hire them again if needed and recommend to my friends and family.

The two men that moved my "hospital" bed and lift chair from my storage unit to my home were cordial, efficient, willing, helpful, expedient, professional and pleasant. They were late getting there, but so was I. Plus when they came to my home, they had to move furniture around, and they didn't complain. It wasn't easy for them. One item was brought up very narrow stairs to my upstairs bedroom. The value was excellent! Hope they didn't get too banged up. They took good care of my heavy furniture. God bless them!

I needed some boxes and other belongings moved from my home into a 4' x 6' storage unit... but it had to be done that day. Jay of First-Rate Moving responded and arranged to move these items for me that evening. He did the job professionally and with amazing energy for the end of a work day. I would hire him again, highly recommended

Baystate moving, particularly John, was FABULOUS! The team came on time, prepared for a long day of moving. John and his team were professional and thorough. The entire apartment was moved efficiently and carefully- not one item damaged. I would recommend Baystate to anyone looking for excellent quality, professional moving services. 6/5 STARS!

We hired Step by Step Moving & Storage in October 2017 for moving from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4+ bedroom house 11 miles away. Job was completed in 5.5 hours. Our 3-man crew was Igor(sp?), Ovidio, and Alex, and we thought they were a great and friendly team. Ovidio was extremely personable and friendly; and Igor had supernatural strength. We were given a 12-1pm time window for arrival and the crew arrived toward the tail end of 1pm. The main contact I dealt with for coordination was Gleb and I found him extremely responsive and thorough with answers. The move itself was outstanding pricing and Gleb was even fair. We noticed we were charged for something that was originally communicated it was included and Gleb resolved it quickly. We do recommend Step by Step Moving for your move!

Despite my initial job for moving having been cancelled (one of their trucks was in an accident the morning of), they were able to rent a moving van and were at my apartment within minutes of getting the rental. The move was quick, easy, and they were very good to work with!

Top Speed did an excellent job moving all our furniture from the second floor to the first floor. Husband and I had been moving things piece meal and decided it was too much for us, not being as young as we used to be. So on Sunday I contacted Thumbtack about movers, they put in touch with Top Speed who contacted me that day. We emailed back and forth, came to a good price and on Wednesday three strong, young men arrived at our home and moved all our furniture. What a relief to have that done for us. Well Done Michael Zazzara and Top Speed Moving and Storage LLC. Donna & Russ

I would definitely recommend Lexel Moving Company for packing and moving services. We had a very professional and positive moving experience with Gabriel and his crew. The moving crew was very careful with our belongings throughout the move and went above and beyond to make the move go as smoothly as possible, working tirlessly for over 8 hours!

I moved a 1 a bedroom with 2 movers and it took us about 3 hours. The experience was great considering moving is one of the most stressful tasks in life. Artem and Dimitri were very professional and very swift. They wrapped everything to protect the furniture and provided me with help setting up. Nothing was dinged or broken. I also had a very large, very heavy air conditioner that they moved for me which I really appreciated. If I ever moved again I would request them because they were that good. Kate who helped me schedule was also really quick and precise with responses. I would definately use this service again and would highly recommend. Thank you Top Rank Movers!!!!

I recently had John D. and one of his associates help with a move that we made at the beginning of August and let me say that they were amazing from the get-go! John was very responsive and his rates were very competitive with the other rates that we were quoted. We went with John due to his great reviews, his responsiveness and his competitive rate. When moving day came we arrived to our new apartment with our full U-Haul (we opted to load ourselves - I definitely regret that) and John and his associate were already at the apartment, waiting and ready to go. They were very friendly and had already located our apartment building for us. We live on the third floor, have no elevator and it was absurdly hot out, yet they both carried everything up and in without a single complaint. John even went above and beyond by putting together our queen bed and our son's crib once all of the pieces were in the apartment. True to his quote, they finished in the estimated time frame and everything was in the apartment and looking great. I am sure they were incredibly exhausted and yet they remained polite and professional the entire time. They did such a good job that I am planning on utilizing John's services again in a couple of months when our new home is ready to move into! I absolutely recommend John and his team as they do amazing work at a great rate. He gave me a new appreciation for just how hard these guys work and how worth it their services truly are.

I had a great move with Flash -- they were very communicative and answered all my questions leading up to the move. They were prompt, polite, and professional on the moving day, even through the temps were creeping up on 90. ( Thanks again you guys! ) I especially appreciated that when my couch didn't fit up the stairs, they were able to hoist it up and over the porch and through the door. That could have been really stressful but they handled it so smoothly it didn't even feel like a hiccup. I would hire again.

I used this moving company 4 times in a period of 6 months so, that, alone, is a pretty strong recommendation. I moved out of 4,000 sq foot house into a rental home and then moved into a new home I purchased. That's a lot of moving a ton of stuff around. I had the same three-man team each time. The nicest, hardest-working guys you will ever meet. On-time, Efficient, careful and industrious! Great problem-solvers when it came to getting big things through doors that were small. I hope not to move again for a long, long time, but I would hire them again in an instant!

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.
