these guys were awesome, NO ONE complained about how much stuff I have. They did all the disassembly and reassembly. I would recommend them highly. I have had several different moving companies and there was always a problem. Moving is stressful and they were great!!

We hired First-Rate Moving to move all our household belongings (furniture, boxes, everything) out of a 10x25 storage locker and into our new townhome. We had the pleasure of having Jay, the owner and one of his crew members complete our move. At the beginning of the planning process, Jay really took the time to understand our moving needs to provide us with as accurate a quote as possible. He was also incredibly responsive to all correspondence throughout the planning process, whether it was by phone, email or text. He also kept us updated on their arrival time, as we were their second job for the day. The pricing was competitive and very fair. The quotes and correspondence I received from other moving companies for this particular move were outrageous and the other moving companies I contacted were not nearly as responsive or as helpful as Jay. When moving day finally arrived Jay and his crew member were pleasant, respectful, careful, & efficient. I am pleased to say that not a single one of our belongings was damaged or broken by them during the move, and we have some really big and heavy furniture that isn’t easily maneuverable. They really took the time to make sure that they used blankets to cover the furniture so it didn’t get scratched in the truck and they also made the most out of the space in their truck and packed everything efficiently, & securely. I can’t say enough nice things about Jay and his crew, and First-Rate Moving. I can without a doubt say that I would absolutely recommend this company, and if the need ever arises again, I would use this company again for any future move. Thank you Jay & First-Rate Moving!

Excellent company. Just booked a last minute move with this company yesterday, and could not be happier with the experience. The owner is extremely responsive to emails/phone calls, and the company goes out of their way to make the customer happy. On TOP of that, they provide a written estimate and actually stick to it! Could you imagine that? A moving company that actually doesn't try and nickel and dime you at the end of a move. I have used multiple moving companies in the past, and this one outshines them by a long shot. If you need a legitimate moving company who is fair priced and honest, this is the one to go with.

I misplaced the paper with the names of the specific movers who helped out, but they showed up when expected and where very good about getting everything loaded up. I had planned on moving a bit more myself, but they packed my TV really well and were careful moving it, as well as a glass cabinet. My tip to anyone moving is to take several days more than you expect to need to make sure you are fully packed. By doing this, they were able to move me in less than the time estimated, saving me money. If you aren't someone who has moved several times, watch youtube videos from u-pack, uhaul, or other big moving companies for tips on the best way to pack different items.

Truly outstanding work. Eric and his team drove several hours in the wake of a snowstorm to handle the job, and finished the move safely and ahead of schedule despite the weather hassles and two annoying staircases. Not a single scratch on furniture and all boxes in pristine condition -- I've never done a 150+ mile move so smoothly. Couldn't ask for more -- and at literally *one-third* the price of national-brand moving companies, incredible value too. I recommend them very enthusiastically. (Thanks again!)

There was a minor hiccup on scheduling, but Spartan sorted it out, and the movers did a great job. The only improvement I'd suggest is that the movers should bring and use floor runners to protect the floors, as the moving companies I dealt with in the past did.

Hebert Moving Company set the standard for which all other moving companies should attempt to achieve. The company said they would be at my home between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m.. They arrived exactly at 9:30. Both employees exited the truck and respectfully and professionally introduced themselves and greeted me with a handshake. They moved all my items with care and caution. These two guys worked well together and did an awesome job. The quoted price and time frame to move my items was exactly what it took to move the items and what I was quoted was exactly what I paid. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone and/or use them again when I move. GREAT JOB...!

As we all know relocating is always hard but if you can delegate some of that trauma to a professional moving company, it feels a tiny bit better. For our last move it was Step-by-step movers. Their men know exactly how to unload your worries. They are very apt at their job, always showing up on time, packing everything with great precision and loading the valuables securely to their vans. My move was as smooth as it could ever be, thanks to these guys.

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!

Moving can be stressful and crazy. I was a little skeptical about hiring movers but these guys were amazing! Perla was such a sweetheart and helped us decide how long to book and what services we needed. The gentleman that helped us move were patient, kind, fast workers and respectful of my things!! They got the job done. We would have finished before the 3 hours we booked, but due to some difficulties with furniture not fitting through very narrow hallways we went over by an hour and a half. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with how professional they were. I moved from a 3rd floor to a 2nd floor and they did great. I would definitely recommend this moving company.

Let me start by saying that I don't usually write reviews. The communication with them since the moment I posted the add was great. They offered a personalized rate according to our needs (instead of sending an automatic message like the rest of the moving companies did). They were polite and understanding at all times. Even though I let them know at last minute about our availability, they managed to squeeze us between jobs within two hours from our short notice. The two movers got here on time and were friendly, fast and yet careful with the handling. We're very satisfied with the service overall and won't hesitate to contact them again for another quote for any future moves.

A hidden gem. For context, we spoke with 8-10 moving companies - from large well known movers to local providers. We were looking for a company we could trust to move us on the specific date/time needed, at a reasonable price, carefully pack portions of our house, and avoid damaging our things. We also have two small daughters, so professionalism was important. There were a lot of options. In the end, Lexel was very reasonably priced, worked around our schedule and needs, were very professional (Nick led our team of movers and was outstanding), and nothing was damaged (nothing!). We couldn't be happier. We've already recommended them to friends and family!

I used TopRankMovers multiple times for I have a small business which requires delivery of furniture items and some antiques to my customers. I've never had a better experience with other moving companies. Top rank movers never fail to find availability for me, they are always on time, take a really good care of things that they're moving. I highly recommend them!

The men were very professional, polite and quick yet careful not to damage anything. Everything was carefully padded and packed into the truck. They were punctual and finished sooner than expected... didn't even want to stop for lunch which was my treat. Would definitely recommend them to anyone. A much different experience than what I have dealt with in the past with other moving companies.

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.
