I had to move from Detroit to Atlanta and We Care Movers did an outstanding job. Shockeem and Darnell were very fast in packing and loading the Uhaul. Shockeem and two others young guys drove the truck to Atlanta and were there when I arrived. They were very professional and carried themselves well. I'll highly recommend this company to anyone looking to move or relocate.

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.

They did a great job. We had to move quickly and were a little disorganized but the movers took that in stride. We appreciated that.

I would highly recommend Integrity movers. Jeff was very flexible and was able to accommodate my move date, although it was less than a week away. The movers arrived when expected, and they completed the move in the time quoted. I paid what I was quoted, and there was no extra hidden fees. The movers were courteous and friendly and worked hard (I moved from a third floor apartment without an elevator). I will definitely use them in the future if I need anything moved.

I really liked this company. They came out to the house in advance to give me an estimate, and the whole group I worked with was very professional. The movers were really nice, polite and professional and kept us updated the entire time they were working. They arrived on time and finished under the estimated time. I would recommend this company and would use them myself in the future.

I can’t begin to express how EXCELLENT my experience with the company was! I have moved many times for school, and then my career throughout the pst decade... and this was BY FAR THE BEST moving company I have ever had the pleasure of hiring! The 3 movers were 10 mins early to survey the job at hand, went above and beyond any and all possible expectations. They wrapped all my furniture; disassembled and reassembled my Ethan Allen bedframe ...helped me with small items and even re-arranged my entire living room for me on the other side!!!! I even noticed that they would move items again and again until they were perfectly centered. I AM so grateful. Also, they were personable and great to talk to! Within 20 mins, I was completely stress free and ended up having a wonderful day! I’ve already called friends and family to encourage them to spread the word. I’m going to tell everyone I work with as well. Seriously, make 1st Priority your first choice. I’m so glad I did. Whenever I move again, they’ll be the ones I call. Thanks again guys!!

I was moving to Tennessee from Michigan and i was referred to This Side Up Moving by a close friend. When it comes to all your personal belongings it hard to trust someone not only to take good care of your stuff but not to commit any theft. I was hesitant to use anyone but the referral is what gave me the courage to use your services. I must say you were very professional and efficient, everything arrived in Tennessee exactly as it was in Michigan. You arrived right on time and even stuck around to help me unpack some of my heavier items. To keep it short and sweet i am very happy I choose to use your services and i will definitely recommend you guys to all my family and friends. Ali you have been great, give a thanks to the team for me as well. Thanks again for everything.

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.
