We had 3 general moving companies come to assess moving our very heavy cabinet grand piano and they all said it could not be done without removing a wall that was added after the piano was moved in. Another company insisted they could move it and brought 4 guys and wasted half our day. Our neighbors parents used all pronto move her grand piano and she swore by them. I called them and spoke to Omar and I immediately felt at ease. I knew these were my guys. He came over and assessed everything and told me immediately how it needed to be moved and why the other companies probably could'nt do it. He later came back with one of his movers Danny and they moved the piano...yes, just the two of them. It was un-freaking-believable! My husband, two little ones and myself watched in disbelief. This is what icall experience. They were also extremely kind, respectful and honest throughout the whole process and I can see why so many other people wrote such great reviews. I would recommend these guys all day long. Don't make the same mistake I made, hire all pro from the start and avoid wasting time and aggravation. Omar and Danny, you rock!!!

Best moving team that we used ever!! Report to work on time. Even though they find out the stuff we have is much more than a regular two bedroom apartment, they still stick with the agreed price. Very efficient and careful when packing and moving. We will definitely recommend Tom and his team to our friends!!!

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!

The team helped us with packing and moving, they are super professional, nice and efficient. They had good estimates both about the packing and the move itself, got everything where we wanted and were able to handle some of the more challenging items. I'm hoping we won't have to move again soon, but if we will - we'll definitely talk to these guys first!

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!

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.

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!

These guys are top notch. Kate was very responsive; every time I communicated with her, I would get a response within a few minutes. In addition to their competitive pricing, I found their service to be very professional, their quality exceptional, and the movers extremely fast and friendly. Jay (?) came and explained everything and never slowed down or took any unnecessary breaks. They fit all of my stuff into their truck so we only needed one trip (full disclosure: I had heard horror stories from some friends who had bad experiences with some other moving companies so I had already moved a small amount of my stuff, like the fragile items and things that didn't need boxes) and I ended up not even needing them for the full time. I would highly recommend Top Rank movers and would absolutely use them again once we buy a new house.

I'm very impressed with John and his crew. First and foremost they are on time. My project not is an easy one and NOT something that most standard moving companies would take on. John's crew took this head on and I couldn't be happier. Knowing what I put him through tells me that he can easily handle anything you may have. Another thing I like which is often overlooked these days and is of high value for me is common sense, and there's no shortage of that with John and his crew. I could tell you about being hard workers, being careful, and all but that's expected and delivered. It's the extras that gives ease of mind that set people apart. What's crazy is that he's basically just getting started in this business, but I feel like he's been doing this for a very long time and should be seen as such. So don't worry about experience. In all I I highly recommend using John for residential or commercial moving.

D&D came over and hauled a bunch of junk from our backyard and shed, large wooden doors, some old stuff from the basement, etc... they were way cheaper then the corporate junk removal company's, they did a good job, good price, they were on time. they got here and got the job done and were on their way. I will differently call them again and refer them F&F.

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!

Bart was exceptional to work with. He is an honest, good person, easy to communicate with and completely reliable. He arrived on time, worked steadfastly. He put together furniture I had bought from Wayfair in a very competent and organized manner. Everything was well done and he was very pleasant to work with. I have will have more furniture to assemble and look forward to working with him again.

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.
