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.

They were on time at a short's notice. Very professional and 2 guys (including Larry Flagg) performed way more work than was required. They swapped out a set of Couches and a Refrigerator(spent time installing the ice maker valve), which they then took with them (couches & fridge) therefore eliminating my son's work of hauling to the front street for Bulk Trash Day. Also, there was a 30' Flatscreen, an Antique Desk, a heavy Exercise Bike and a heavy Treadmill. Their Upfront Price was very cheap so I gladly gave them a tip. I will definitely do business with this company again in the future, and recommend them to anyone I know in need of movers. Thank You Thumbtack for recommending TLC, and Thank You TLC for a great job!!!

95 degrees and 100% humidity didn’t slow these guys down. They showed up ready to work and kept going until the whole job was complete. Not your run of the mill movers who just toss boxes, they paid special attention to keeping the job organized and moving along all while treating our belongings as careful as they would have their own. I’d definitely recommend Titus and his crew for your next move. Thank you so much for a job well done!

I was a recent customer who came out of a stressful situation which included new promotion, new region, new place to live I called Jills movers and she and her team blew my expectations out of the water. She was kind, genuine, so were the guys who moved me. They moved me an hour and a half away and did it in one fell swoop. Down three flights of stairs in my tight cornered apartment, and into a moving truck, drove my entire life from Grand Rapids to three rivers, mi and packed my life into a rented storage unit. Not breaking one thing in the process. Got home in the dark, told me it was their pleasure. I tipped each driver $180 bucks I was so impressed with how well they were prepared and so ready to listen and accept direction it was worth every penny. They smiled the whole time. AND get this! The two guys who moved me, one guy was a veteran in the moving industry for like 30 years and the kid with him was brand new to the moving world and did a great job. It was kinda cool actually to watch him help the newest team member to their moving family, they have to be tip top for Jill and her team leaders. This move was HUGE. Big furniture, countless art pieces and photos, tables, bedding, clothes, pet stuff, deck and patio furniture, and camping gear. It was like the best decision I could have made. Everywhere else I called quoted me $1000+ and they did the entire job at less than half of that. I could not have been luckier to have stumbled upon Jills movers. They really should be called, ‘Jills saviors,’ it was like they took all the pain and hassle away and did it faster than I could with friends or family. Would obviously recommend to just about anyone looking for the best price, best customer service, and best possible moving experience. I’ll tell anyone this—especially you! Jills got my future business. Smoothest movers in the area.

    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.
