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!

I had to move out of my apartment into storage and move back in 17 days later. Tom and his team were very professional, arrived on time, carefully wrapped everything up in blankets and brought everything back in the same condition. Tom also helped me set up a futon which was not part of the deal! If I ever have to move, Tom will be the person to go to. His staff are friendly, very efficient and knowledgable. The price was very reasonable too. Thank you Tom for making the move super easy!

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!

Eric and Christian were wonderful to work with. They were professional, punctual, but also fun to chat with while we were moving stuff out. They planned things out ahead of time and the move went very quickly. I would definitely recommend them to anyone moving out of an apartment.

We had five movers (Leandro, Alfredo, Oscar, Jesus, Ran) and two 26 foot trucks to move a three level, 2 bedroom town house and a jam packed 10x30ft. storage unit. They were able to fit all of the contents unlike our previous move, where we ended up taking several car loads after the movers left because there was no more room on the truck. They arrived during the two hour window they specified. All of the movers worked very hard and efficiently even in 90 degree heat. They were sure to identify all previously damage on furniture and items so we were aware and knew it was preexisting. All of the workers were careful and professional. I believe our total cost came in just below or right about what we we're quoted. Their time estimation was right on! We were very pleased with the speed and overall quality of the move, I do not think anything was damaged. My only complaint is that a number of boxes did not end up in the right rooms even though most rooms and boxes were labeled. The furniture and some other larger items were not left in the right places. This was partially my inexperience in having a moving crew. I was out at the truck directing where to bring things. I needed someone inside to give specific instructions to the movers for furniture placement and where to create box piles. I did give specific instructions on a few items and it was lost in translation. (For example, I asked that the gas grill be left on the stones at the edge on the deck. Instead, they put it on the deck.) This was not a huge problem as we can move things around but it would have been nice to not have to do a whole lot of rearranging. I would hire them again but would know more how to direct them to get even better end results.

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 guys at Hebert Movers were great! I had a one bedroom move from the suburbs to the city and the crew of three did it very fast and efficiently! The truck broke down in the morning so they did show up very late but Frank called regularly with updates and did the best he could given the circumstances. Would recommend Hebert Movers!

The Service Man and his team were incredible from the very beginning. There was an unexpected issue with the apartment I was moving into THE DAY I was supposed to move and they were incredibly flexible and understanding about the situation and completely accommodated the new date and time. Two days later, when I was finally able to move into the new place, they were fast, efficient, and kind despite the sweltering heat. The job ended up being bigger than either of us had expected but they did not complain and completed the entire move in an impressive 4.5 hours. All of my belongings were treated with care. Please hire them - you won’t be sorry! I really hope I don’t have to move anytime soon, but if I do they will be my first call!

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 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 had 3 large items delivered which we realized we couldn't get up our stairs. Reached out to JP Moving in the evening and arranged next day (!) hoisting up the back balcony. Our movers came early (after checking with us), got everything up and inside where we wanted it, and put away the boards we'd brought out for supports, all in less time than we'd anticipated. Super happy with how everything went!

Smart Penny Moving

Verified review

I recently moved from Boston, MA to southern Maine. Smart Penny sent me a truck and two guys to move everything out of my 2 bedroom second-floor apartment to my new 3 bedroom first-floor apartment. It took three hours to get everything out (they wrapped all my furniture for me) and one to get everything back in. They even helped move some of the crap furniture left behind by the previous tenant. The movers worked so efficiently it actually ended up taking longer to drive up than it did doing the actual labor. Fortunately, Smart Penny gave me an excellent deal. Even though Maine and Massachusetts could be considered a "long distance move", they considered it a local move and charged me a flat rate for travel time, which saved me well over $200 thanks to all that traffic. I would definitely highly recommend them!

Alex, Dimitry, and Eugene were essential to our move. They were communicative and arrived promptly and helped us figure out the best plan. They were confident and competent, clearly experienced. That calmed us - we handed everything over to them, and they took excellent care of us and our belongings and were respectful of our new and old homes. Very efficient. Friendly. Helpful. Amazing price for stellar service. We'll absolutely call them next time movers are needed. Thank you!

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!

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.
