I have used Name Your Price Movers for my last 3 moves. Each time they had arrived on time and were very nice and professional. ALi, the owner, always gave me a fair good deal and the movers (i think the lead mover is Egor / Sasha) remembered me from the previous move. We joked and laughed during this last one about keeping him and Ali on speed-dial. All and all this is a great company to have move you.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would gladly do so. This is my second time using Baku Moving. I first found them on Thumbtack, excellent reviews, and hired them. Very impressed the first time, so I hired them again for another move. To my surprise I had two of the three original movers that moved me the first time. I could not be happier. A special thanks to Tural. The staff is courteousness and professional. They go out of there way to accommodate your needs. The movers themselves anticipated every possible phase of the move, from what goes on first to last , where i wanted things put upon delivery, even what I needed wrapped for storage. They even moved furniture around my house to make room for what they were delivering. No damage the first time and no damage the second time.

I had a great experience hiring Zebna Movers. The movers showed up right on time and were very friendly. They got everything done that was necessary in the time being. They also were a really great price for the service, so I will be recommending them to friends who are moving in the future! Some minor feedback, however, that I think would make the service even more stellar: - I had asked for a wardrobe box prior to my move and they came with one that didn't quite function. The movers were able to create a makeshift one, but it took more time than necessary and did not hold all of my wardrobe hanging items. - In the past, I have had movers come with large boxes. They typically fill those boxes up with all the little bags and things I have packed, then take the big boxes into the moving truck. Zebna did not have those, so they had to carry every small item to the truck by hand. To me, this is not the most efficient way to move and meant that the service took longer than necessary. Overall, I appreciated the company--they were very responsive and professional and I would use their services again. Thank you!

The move went very smoothly, and they made it look easy. The only issue I had was that I got a call from the Piano Movers about an hour and a half before the two hour window was supposed to start, saying they were running early and that they would be at the starting location in 45 minutes. This caused me to have to rush to try to get there at the same time as them, and I was unable to get there until approximately 15 minutes after the time they stated they were going to get there in the phone call. I felt bad for making them wait, but it was still a full half hour before the originally stated window was supposed to begin.

We hired A1 to help us move an over packed 3BD/2BA row home into a 5,000 sq ft dream home using a 26ft truck. LaShawn was very helpful and courteous when I had to reschedule our move date 3x because of our closing date change. The movers arrived on time and began to haul. Our items were wrapped and Tetris'd into the truck. Abdul is the 2017 Tetris state champion! I would hire the team again in a heartbeat and refer A1 to all my friends and family.

Great Nation Movers were a huge help to me in executing a last-minute move on a tight schedule. After accepting a Job in Western Maryland, Great Nation picked up my furniture and delivered everything immediately. They made the whole process easy, the customer service was fantastic, and everything arrived in one piece. I definitely plan on using them again whenever the next move comes.

Skyride movers were beyond amazing!!! We had a two day move which was very stressful for me and my husband, but because we had the hell if Skyride movers we weren’t stressed at all. They did such an amazing job. They missed placed a few small screws and came back the following day to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend them! Thank you all for such a great job!

PMS Services provided an excellent moving service. Jamal and his beautiful wife have a great customer service they met and exceeded our expectations. They dismantled furniture and assembled it at the new location. I will recommend PMS Services to anyone that needs professional movers at a great price.

Stavos is an exceptional handyman. He was flexible in timing and installed a fan in my son's room without problem. He even worked with me to find a solution to fill a gap around the fan mounting (not due to his workmanship at all, but due to the size of fan I purchased and the hole in the ceiling left from the recessed lighting it replaced). Can't recommend him enough!

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 honestly can’t say enough about my experience with this company. I sold some furniture to a woman via an internet website. She used this company as her movers. I immediately noticed how fast, hard working and thorough they were. I had recently moved and used movers that struggled with everything and took 12 hours to move me to a 2 bedroom condo. These guys were done in 3 hours and they made 2 trips for her!! I needed a junk removal service to finish clearing out my home. The same day that these guys were moving the woman’s things for her, the junk removal guys showed up. These guys moved a house full of furniture for the woman for less than $250! They moved a washer and dryer, large sectional with recliner, separate living room set, separate love seat, a long dining room table, pub table, office desk, several pictures. Sooooo many things. It took 2 trips and their truck is huge. Meanwhile, the junk removal guys show up and did more talking than anything. They removed a kiddie bed and a queen bed and charged me $360! They also tried to hustle me by suggesting they use a dumpster that was $500 base price! The labor was separate. I would have paid over $1500 to have my things removed. I paid the junk guys and vowed to write a review about how they swindled me. They didn’t even complete the job. They said they had other jobs and would come back another day. I was so upset. I asked this business if they could help me instead. He agreed and only charged me $150!!! They cleaned out my entire basement, upstairs and every single room including the garage! I paid extra because they were so kind and extremely extremely fast!! Please use this company. You won’t be disappointed. I can’t say enough great things about them. Good honest workers who don’t hustle people or rip them off. I’ll alwsys use them.

Excellent movers, heavy lifters, and all around good men. They were able to get a washer/dryer combo unit up very narrow and winding stairway in my small city rowhome. Very difficult job done well. Highly recommend.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
