Overall a the Movers did nice job. Very polite, careful, and efficient. My biggest issue was with communication. Planned the delivery over Thumbtack. Had window for Movers to arrive at pickup location between 9-11 am. Didn't arrive until after 3:00. Had to call Omar to find out what was happening. Would've appreciated call from Movers to know they were running very late. Had planned for them to take away old upright. Was quoted price for takeaway. Movers had no idea they were taking old piano away when they arrived. Had check written for quoted price of piano move and disposal of old piano. Was told by Movers that price was more than what was quoted by Omar. So if I had to rate the actual Movers, 4-5 stars. If I had to rate the company's communication with us and among their staff, 2-3 stars.

Overall I would recommend the service. The movers did show up 2 hours late, but when they arrived they were quick and helpful. Also liked the flat rate instead of watching the clock with hourly rate movers.

If you want a moving company that listens to your needs and communicates with you throughout the entire move then choose First Rate Movers. The price was a lot less than these overpriced companies and there are no hidden fees. Everything is in writing and they will happily change your requests. Jay is always available and if on a job will return your call in minutes. I was very happy with their service and highly recommend them. Don't fall for those ads from certain movers who hit you with fees like gas and mileage and cost hundreds more. You found the best movers...They are First Rate!

Flawless, courteous service from start to finish. Alex sent me a quote instantly, and stayed in touch the whole time. The movers, Divia and Tavas showed up on time, packed the small amount of furniture we had with care, and did a phenomenal job. The price was the best. Highly recommend!

I rated these movers 5 stars only because I couldn’t rate them any higher. These movers did everything right. They were prompt, neat, clean and very professional in their appearance. They were extremely careful with each piece of furniture. They wrapped each piece of furniture with a thick quilted blanket, then wrapped the blanket with tape to make sure the blanket stayed on the furniture throughout it’s journey. They then carefully and strategically placed each piece of furniture in the moving truck. Once the furniture was in place, they lashed down the furniture with webbing to ensure the furniture didn’t move or bounce around in the truck during the travel cycle. Once they reached their destination point, they unwrapped each piece of furniture one at a time and carefully placed them where instructed. My wife and I are extremely pleased and couldn’t ask for better. Oh,…and did I mention they were reasonably priced? It’s a pretty safe bet that if you hire these movers, you’ll be more than satisfied. We can’t say enough about them!

I wish I knew about them last time we moved. Mackeile and Ruben were such a great help. I remember how long it took our movers last time we moved and these guys completed our move 3 hours faster. Mackeile is an exception, you don't get to work with someone so professional in his field very often, he is really Super Mover !!!! Thank you Mackeile for a great moving experience, you and your time really impressed us !!!!

We were moving from out of state to Rhode Island and I found K.J. Junk and Hauling here. Tony responded right away, was professional and prompt. It was a challenge to wrangle movers to unload a POD while I was still out of state and Tony just simply got the job done right which I really appreciate. Would def hire them again!

Very easy to make arrangements. Very responsive to my messages/questions. The 2 movers worked their butts off from 10:15-7:15. They were friendly, polite and hard workers. Also a really good value. They were the lowest quote I got. $100 per hour with a truck. I mentioned the price to several friends of mine who had recently moved and we got the best deal! Highly recommended.

I recently hired them to move my house. This was done on very short notice and not many movers were available to do the job. These folks quickly gave me a good quote, came in the same day and helped me move house really quickly. They were efficient and responsive from the word go, and didn't waste time at all. Picked and packed my stuff into their giant truck and brought it to the new place safely. I'd definitely hire them for my next move or suggest them to my friends and family who need their services. Thank you guys!

I never thought I would say this about moving, but this was a great experience! The movers called me when they were leaving the warehouse to give me a heads up, were extremely careful with my belongings, and so nice and friendly to boot! And all this came at an amazing price - having used other, larger companies in the past, I was SHOCKED (in a good way) when they told me how much it was. Flash was fantastic all around. I will definitely be using them again and recommending them to all of my friends!

I wanted to share the awesome experience I had with Poseidon Moving on Wednesday. Chris, Elly, Amir, and Vlad moved us from Medford, MA to Kingston, RI. They were ruthlessly efficient (carrying three boxes at a time kind of efficient), respectful of our homes and our belongings, and nice people. On top of that, they were very fair with pricing, which I really appreciated. I saw the 120 or so five star reviews Poseidon had on Yelp and didn’t really believe it (how can movers be that good?), but now I get it. Thank you for making a stressful experience easy for us.

I have moved enough times in my life to know how stressful it can be and that most times things just don’t work out as expected. I used Xpress Movers for my last two moves and both were absolutely amazing. This last time I had some challenging stairs to deal with but the teams had a positive attitude and were willing to work VERY hard to make everything work. I was blown away and they took a stressful day and made it work better than I could have hoped.

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.
