I used "Your Friends With A Truck" for a local move. Exactly what I would expect in a mover- polite workers, hard workers, did EXACTLY as I asked them to do when we got to the other house. I had a bad experience with another mover and learned a lesson, so I went behind the guys to make sure they did as I asked and they went further. Further, David's email had the expenses laid out so I could figure my budget for the move. I would recommend them for your move.

This is the first time I have used movers and they did an amazing job. I moved from a 3 story townhouse to a 1 bedroom apartment on the third floor. The three gentleman were extremely polite, courteous, and quick. The move from start to finish was 3 hours including travel. They handled my belongings with care and asked me where I wanted my boxes to be placed to make unpacking easier for me. I will definitely use them again and recommend Name Your Price Movers to anyone on a budget but still desire a quality and professionalism.

I have got the best service along with a great deal. I had a very tight budget and my move was not an easy one to execute. They went right to work wrapping and loading everything, and even helped me to seal up some boxes that I was having a hard time with. Nothing broken or otherwise harmed, nothing missing. All I can say is that this is how moving should be done. Pick a service, get a price, sign up and let the moving begin. Highly recommended!

These guys are simply the best. As everybody knows, there are always horror stories about movers, and I'm sure the quality and service you will receive are the best. We had an excellent move! They were on budget, on time, and there was NO damages. They protected the floors and railings in both the new and old house. True professionals! Rose was pleasant and gave the best advice and service, David did the In-Home estimate and was professional and knowledgeable. I had a one day (long distant move). Started at 7:30 am and they finished at my new home around 8:00 PM Daniel and crew were exceptional. Highly recommend.

I'm so glad I hired PROAH to help me with a moving. Bede and his guy were great, he answered my messages immediately whenever I contacted him, and the day of the moving they arrived at my place early. They did the whole move (1 bedroom apartment) very quick and diligently. I totally recommend their services and would use them again in the future if necessary.

After having a very stress free and accurate move, I decided to write this comment. I hired Skyride Moving to move my house a week ago. The movers arrived on time with the packing materials. Movers did not waste a minute. They immediately started packing and loading my furniture. They packed everything with great care, carefully moved my sofa, shelves, bed. In the end they completed the move well within the estimated timeline and stored everything perfectly at the new place. It was a spotless performance at a very good price. I would like to thank them for being so efficient, friendly and polite.

Found Tim on thumtack. After getting appointment set, I had to leave town for a couple of weeks. That did not effect Tim's stride, He stayed in touch letting me know he was ready when I was. He assisted us in finding a truck at a reasonable price. On the day he was early and I was late, again it did not break his stride. We were moving a 10x15 storage unit of loosely stacked articles to a 10x10 unit at a more reasonably priced storage facility. Again that did not brake his stride. He with one helper, that he left in his dust at getting the stuff stacked. He stacked the boxes tight and there was know problem getting the articles in the unit. He treats your articles as his. Tim is personable, professional, efficient and affordable. In fact at this time I have scheduled him to take the boxes out of the unit for me to look for some important papers and later in the day return and replace it in the unit. I trust Tim with all my moving needs. He also does several other jobs including drywall and furniture assembling. Thanks to Tim, be using you again. If you don't use Time for you needed services, big mistake.

Darrel is very reliable , polite , courteous , helpful and understanding. Our appointment was at 8 AM, but he showed up at 7:50 AM with his own truck and one extra guy because i had 2 hours of work(appointment) and i needed to get the move done quickly, he dint even charge me for his time and accepted the agreed upon amount ($$$), dint ask for anything more. I used Reliable moving and labor services for the first time and can easily say I am fully satisfied. Darrel did an excellent job helping with the move. I can 100% recommend darrel for moving requirements.

Pick Up Movers was easily accessible during entire process via email or phone. Their manager thoroughly explained how the moving would go and gave me the estimate based the information I gave. The movers were on time and got to work quickly. The movers were great at the packing service making sure that all the boxes were marked and easily found upon arrival. Everything arrived in the same condition as it left. I had a really move with this moving service.

I had a last minute emergency at work and needed to move an item from one office building to the other as to not hold up a deal. I contacted all the well known companies (jk moving, collegehunks, etc.). Everyone was booked. I came on here and Ken was very responsive. Sent the addresses, he arrived within an hour of the original request. The item was transported quickly and free of damage. He was also extremely courteous and understanding. I could only choose 3 highlights, but I was satisfied across the board. I would certainly recommend his services and use him again in the future. Thank you Ken.

I had an excellent experience when it came to both the coordination and execution of my long distance move with M&M Moving and Hauling. They were the first company to provide me with a quote, and were able to complete the job for a very reasonable price. My father, who oversaw the pickup location side of the move, even commented on how efficient they were at loading everything. Even if you are moving into a walk-up with narrow stairwells, no need to fear— Marvin and his assistant dealt with it spectacularly. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again.

I had one very heavy armoire I wanted moved from downstairs to upstairs. My three Bellhops showed up on time and they were very friendly and courteous. My armoire is big, heavy, and awkward and they had to navigate a curve with railings and a low ceiling area as they carried it upstairs. They were as careful as they could be with it. They were great and I will definitely recommend Bellhops Moving to my family and friends! Thank you.

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.
