We were moving some items from my father-in laws apartment in Southfield, MI to Flushing, MI. The team that was sent did an outstanding job of loading the truck and unloading the truck at the destination in record time. These two young men were taking care of business!! I would definitely use them again and refer them to anyone who needs to hire movers. The price was reasonable and they were able to accommodate a short notice request. Thank you!! We Care Movers!

Outstanding service and price! Extremely honest and hardworking group of professional movers. Was a little hesitant to hire at first because calls are not picked up by office during normal hours but David always returned my call within an hour or two. I paid $405.00 total (included mattress bags) to move my mom's 950 sq ft condo furniture to my house. Because the truck that was closest to my home at my 3pm appt had a 3 man crew from their earlier 8am move, I had 3 movers for the price of 2. Devon, Courtney and Mike were TERRIFIC. They moved quickly and tirelessly and were finished well under the 4 hour/2 man rate. David assured me I would be charged the rate I agreed to and I was. I shopped for the best price, but had only hoped for the best service. David and crew are all professional, hardworking, kind, honest, and grateful to boot! They are the BEST! Couldn't have asked for more. Thank You All!!!

I thought piano movers were expensive. It's not cheap, but JP's was much more reasonable than I had anticipated. Very smooth transaction, very responsive, payment options were easy to do, and the guys had my piano on the truck in a flash. Lose one star for punctuality; a phone call to give me a more accurate ETA would have earned the fifth star. Highly recommend.

Self Made movers were efficient, professional, friendly, and more than I could have asked for. They moved my bedroom in downtown Detroit to Royal Oak. I would absolutely hire them again to move.

I was moving everything from a 1 bed/1 bath from Troy to Detroit. First Choice movers was very professional and efficient, from messaging me a confirmation the previous night, to arriving on time and finishing the job much quicker than estimated. I would definitely recommend them to a friend.

Wow! I had a very specialized move. I have a major illness and I was looking to move not only myself, but my fiancee as well in one grand move. Richard packed up my stuff in Sterling Heights, transported it to Monroe, packed up my fiancee's apartment, and moved everything to our new place. He and his two associates spent about 5-6 hours on this project on a Sunday. The price was much more affordable than I had thought it would be as well. They were very nice and understanding of my situation and worked very hard to get everything done for me. I have moved over 11 times in the past, but never had movers that were so quick, and so very nice and understanding. Richard and his associates are great men with great values and I highly recommend them for your move!

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.
