I've never heard of Thumbtack until I googled RI movers. I received a reply from Eduardo Hopp of H Movers. We emailed a few times and then I started talking to Crystal on the phone. She was so pleasant and outstanding at trying to accommodate my times. Moving day came, and I have to say I could not have been more happy. I received a call from Stephen a few minutes before 8am telling me that they were just a few minutes away. I had three movers, Edwardo, the owner, Stephen and Naldo. I have never written a review before, but had to because they were the best movers I've ever dealt with. We moved 5 rooms with some very difficult large antiques pieces. There was not one mark on and furniture or walls. They are so expert at what they do. The best part of all was that they were so well spoken, polite, respectful. I could go on and on. If your looking for a mover, you'd be crazy not to talk to them. OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE!!!

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!

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.

If I could’ve added the extra two variables of value and professionalism to my review on the previous screen, I would have. These guys were stellar and did such a great job and for such a good price. Thank you so much Round the Clock movers. You really made me so happy figuring out a way to get my oversized couch into this new apartment in a narrow hallway. Thank you!

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!

After failing to hear back from a number of other contractors, I responded to a quote and was immediately engaged in a simple conversation resulting in scheduling a move. They didn’t need an itemized list like other movers, which I found helpful. The two movers were incredibly hard working, efficient, careful and courteous. They moved my 1 bedroom apartment in under 4 hrs w/ 15 mile travel time included. Nothing was damaged in the process, and I received a nice thank note for hiring them. With my experience, I wouldn’t bother contacting other movers that Thumbtack recommend, and just go straight to these guys. It’ll save you the headache and stress about not knowing if you’re going to get your move arranged in time and for an economical cost. Thanks Stanley and Ello! —Ryan

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
