We just used Baku Moving for our local move. We couldn't be happier with the entire process. I did a lot of research and got a lot of quotes and we decided to go with Best Movers. The guys showed up right on time and were very friendly and professional. They moved so quickly! Moving is usually a nightmare but the whole day went smoothly. We will definitely use them again and have already recommended them to friends.

I was moving out of state (VA to FL) and I had a few quotes done and Smart Moving came at the best price and the only ones who would accommodate the exact schedule I needed. They don't bubble wrap your fragile items so we did that but understandable b/c it was an affordable rate! Just make sure to wrap everything you don't have dinged :) Would recco!

Charlie and his team were awesome. I needed movers last minute for moving my 1bedroom apartment into another and he was able to move me the very next day. They were extremely friendly which I loved, and they had a great system to get everything done quickly. They really worked well together which made my moving process so smooth and quick. I already referred him to a family member who needs help moving equipment for his business (big job) :-) I will hire these great group of professionals again!

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.

I contracted with Mr. Welch for moving about 70 boxes to a small trailer. He helped me define the job more accurately and was responsive and fair with a really good price for the service. Though my plans changed for this opportunity, he was gracious and I will most certainly use this company again.

We hired SkyRide to move our one bedroom apartment and I was concerned because this was not an easy move. We were moving to a 4th floor apartment with no elevator and very narrow star cases.... It was also the hottest day of the year! Felt like 109 outside!! These guys made it look easy. I was amazed at how hard the two guys worked in such intense heat. We were in our new place in 2.5 hours!! This included moving all big furniture, boxes and the dismantling/reassembly of a queen bed and dining room table. I would highly recommend Fred and his team. They were nothing short of OUTSTANDING!

5 BIG STARS!! Moving three girls' accumulated belongs from VA to DC was an insane task, and we are so happy that we had Terrence do the job! He was on time, efficient, and so nice to work with. He brought his own U-haul, packed everything with care, and moved our hoard of belongings up several flights of stairs, in such a swift manner! He made our move smooth and worry-free. After this crazy moving experience, we would definitely recommend and trust Terrence and his team for any moving need.

Had to move all of my stuff from point A to point B. The movers arrived early and were ready to work despite me not being 100% ready. They did the move in exactly 1 hour which is insane since when I first moved it took another moving company over 2 hours. The crew didn't damage a thing and everything arrived at my new place just as it was. Great movers and I'll be using them in the future for sure.

You kept those guys on track and that was not unnoticed. Greg I can't thank you enough for being there from beginning to end.

This was one of my easiest moves to date, and I've moved all over about once every other year for 10 years! Unfortunately, I injured my knee and wasn't able to do much moving, but Moving With US was so quick, they moved me in less time than I had previously encountered (with me helping). The truck was huge and they had additional packing materials for my large glass desk and TV's. They are very responsive and will provide you with great service. I will be recommending them to all of the neighbors in my new community.

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 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.

But you made it the most memorabe moving we have ever experienced without breaking our back. Thanks for helping us move. We are so grateful for all the hard work you put in, and would like to recomend your profesionalism to others. Thank you again for a job wonderfully well done. Alemu Mekonnen

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.
