These guys are fabulous! Very professional, very hardworking and every one of the movers had great personalities. I used them to move my business office furniture/equipment into storage while some renovations were being done and then they came back a week or so later to move everything back in. I would absolutely use them again. I highly recommend!

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!

Great movers. I was surprised by how quickly they emptied my apartment. You can just hand these guys the keys and go relax somewhere. I expect to hire them for my next move. Great rates.

We had a wonderful experience with Miss Cheryl’s Movers. They were 100 per cent responsive to our questions before the move, they showed up 10 minutes early, worked really hard and efficiently and as an added bonus Jack and Lorand are really nice guys. We were especially impressed when I made note to Lorand about how we was so carefully wrapping a piece of our furniture and he said, “the most important thing about being a good mover is to treat someone else’s belongings like they are mine.’ Perfectly said and we’ll done! Thank you Miss Cheryl’s Movers.

The movers were on time, and I was paying by the hour so I was worried they'd be slow on purpose but actually they were extremely efficient. I'll be working with them for my next move.

These guys are the best of the best. They spent four hours correcting another movers 12 hour nightmare. Go with Top Speed Moving and Storage. You won't be disapointed.

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!

Would gladly recommend to anyone looking for movers. We hired them to unload a large pod delivered to our driveway. They arrived right on time and didn’t stop working until the job was done. They were also ready and willing to help move existing furniture items from room to room.

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 !!!!

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 had recently moved with Poseidon Moving from Boston to DC. From the moment I requested a quote I knew I had the right people. Their manager Alex walked me through my quote and explained everything in details with no surprises or hidden fees. I had a pleasure working with their movers Kevin, Andrew, and Efim - which worked hard from the moment they showed at my home in Boston till the delivery in DC which was a 4the floor walk up; they made it seem super easy. Thank you Poseidon Moving!

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.
