Hands down, the best experience with a moving company that I have had the pleasure of dealing with. I've tried a few of the companies (including doing it myself) in the past when moving between apartments, but Your Friends with a Truck have blown away any expectations or preconceived notions that I had about moving companies. They were the lowest quote I got, but still worked harder than anyone else I've used in the past. I would (and have!) recommended them to anyone that will be moving in the near future.

As a renter, I move around a lot. With that said, I've gone through a lot of moving companies in the DC Metro Area. After having some pretty awful experiences, I decided to do my homework here on Google to find a moving company with a great reputation. That's how I found these Movers. This company is top notch. During my initial call, a very attentive representative was able to assist me with a pretty decent quote and reserving a moving date. I even purchased a moving kit from them (about 30 boxes, a tape gun and 12 rolls of tape) which they delivered prior to my move. On the day of my move, they were early and did all the prepping before taking furniture out. They wrapped EVERYTHING in plastic. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!!! My sofa, dining set, tv's, you name it. I was out of my old place within 2 hours and in to my new place within an hour. When everything was done, we went over paper work and the actual total was right on point with the estimate. Unlike other moving companies where my bill usually was doubled from the original quote. So if you're looking for a good moving company in the DC Metro Area, I would strongly recommend Name Your Price Movers. Their reputation here on Thumbtack speaks for itself.

Baku Moving was the most professional of all the moving companies we contacted for our move from DC to TN. Our timelines were tight, but they did everything they could to make us happy. Samir especially is a pleasure to work with. We will definitely refer them to our family & friends. 5 stars for the impeccable customer service.

Zebna is a great moving company. They were clear and consistent with their pricing and provided great value compared to other moving companies. I was impressed that they agreed to deliver my belongings for an interstate move (Maryland to North Carolina) within one day. They arrived within 30 minutes of the promised window for the pick-up and delivered on the day promised. I was particularly impressed with the two movers who delivered my belongings and reassembled my furniture efficiently with friendliness and good humor. I do recommend packing your own belongings if you hire this company or hiring a separate professional packing service. They are great movers but not professional packers.

These guys stepped up on MLK Jr. Day when my other movers bailed on me. A holiday! I get off the phone, Charlie has found a babysitter, and he and his men are at my apartment within 2 hours with little to no notice. Move-in process was a breeze. These guys are good, efficient, and extremely personable. We moved a fairly stuffed 1 bedroom in less than 3 hours. I was really impressed with the fact that Charlie is right there in the middle of the action. You know all of your stuff is being watched carefully, and you know the owner takes a lot of pride in his business when he's at the frontline. I HIGHLY recommend this company over any of the others. I've discussed several quotes with others on Thumbtak, and now know that this company's 60 mile work radius, flat rates, and professional yet personal demeanor made the moving process almost fun. I will use them again. And they will be the only moving company I recommend to others.

The men were early to the job and did the work in half the time I expected. When my couch wouldn't fit through the doorway, they were quick thinking and managed to successfully remove and reassemble the legs. They charged me a fraction of the price that any other moving company quoted. I'd recommend them to anyone.

I had a wonderful experience with Rose and team from Great Nation Movers. From start to finish it was a smooth process. I appreciated the In-home visit for the consultation. That's really what made me decide to choose Great Nation over other moving companies. On moving day, the team arrived to find me overwhelmed with all going on. The entire team jumped in right away to finish the packing and start the loading. I could not have been more pleased with the job they did. Pick up and delivery was smooth and flawless. I could not have been more pleased with the job they did. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Fred and Glen are nice. Came up with a reasonable quote to move my 2 bed apt across 428 miles. I was looking for some movers who can move my stuff in a day time rather than delivering it after a week or so(as most moving companies do in general). These two quickly loading everything, drove all the way straight and unloaded at my new place. No damages & proper care taken. I would strongly suggest hiring this company for all types of moves.

I just moved this past weekend from NW to NE DC, and I would definitely recommend them. While they were late, it wasn't too much of a problem for me because my schedule was flexible. Also, they were very responsive to my calls/messages. Other then that the process was very smooth and the team handled obstacles (narrow stairs, furniture disassembly, small freight elevator) very well and carefully handled my furniture. Also I had more stuff than anticipated and they didn't charge me more for it or complain at all. Most importantly the price was so reasonable compared with what other moving companies were quoting with little to no compromise on service. Thanks Terrence!

These guys were very professional and hard working. My move was flawless. Larry I want to thank you so much for leading your team through the whole process. 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. You did exactly what you promised you would do....you got me moved no matter how long or difficult. You are a man of your word and that's important to me. To the rest of your team, thank you so much for working so hard to finish the job. You guys were awesome! I will refer Relocation Solutions to all my family and friends when in need of a moving company. I'm moving again in 18 months, there is no question about it, Relocation Solutions is the moving company I will be calling. I wish you all the best and will definitely be in touch soon.

We could not have been more happy with Adrian during our move last weekend! They were punctual, efficient, and great to talk to. The move was quicker than we thought it would be and hiring them made all the difference. Checkmate was also so much more affordable than some of the bigger moving companies I originally looked into. I can't recommend them enough.

When it was time for me to move, I researched, researched and then researched some more. I talked to many companies. But there was something special about the gentleman on the phone from Pick Up Movers that I decided to hire them. They were absolutely awesome. They packed with military precision. They were out of my house before anyone even knew that I was moving out. I am so very grateful to them for delivering on time and saving the trouble of having to beg them to give me my things back. There are so many inefficient moving companies and fortunately, I got the best one.

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've moved quite a bit in my lifetime. Pack-N-Move is by far the best moving company I've ever hired. The speed in which they work, the quality, and the professionalism is unprecedented. If you need to move in the near future it would be very wise to hire Pack-N-Move.

Our two helpers were great for moving our large items upstairs. They were quick, made a good team, and were very friendly. My only issue was that they weren’t as familiar with putting the furniture back together, and my husband had to do most of the work on that front. Would definitely hire again!

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.
