"This reviews is long overdue since the work Karl did for me was almost a year ago. Karl came to give me a quote on painting, but after learning more about him and his skills, I ended up hiring him for a master bathroom and master bedroom remodel job. He was thorough in his analysis of what I was looking for and provided an itemized quote for the job. The price was fair for the work to be completed. After deciding to go forward, Karl had a detailed contract for us to sign which made me feel comfortable that both of us would hold our end of the deal and was professionally what I was expecting from a contractor. If anyone has worked with contractors before, you know that the jobs usually never go according to plan and the cost and time involved increase. Yes, the cost increased some and time increased some but it was all because of add-ons I wanted and changes made from original quote. The time was only 2-3 weeks longer than originally anticipated because of these changes and add-ons I had. Someone was there just about every day and I could see the progress being made. Communication was great. If he was unsure about my preference on something, he would ask. He would update me on where he was at on a regular basis. I was anxious about the job being completed on time because I was pregnant and close to my due date and I felt he was very cognizant of that fact. We worked during the day and let him and his crew use a lockbox to come in while we were gone. I felt comfortable leaving him and his team in the house while we were gone and there were no issues with privacy or things being out of place or missing. Soon after the job was complete, there was a leak in the mainfloor bathroom from the master bath upstairs. I was worried that there was some faulty work and having to call him about it, but he came over the next day and we figured out that there was an issue with the plumbing on the shower handle that his plumber was able to fix right away. We haven't had an issue since. I appreciated his quick reaction time and attentiveness to resolve the issue. We love our master bedroom, new walk in closet, and new master bath that Karl worked on. Very happy with the result."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
