While the first two days went reasonably well, on the third day, they threw framed pictures, and my computer screens into boxes without packing them in padding or even paper. There was considerable damage discovered when the boxes were unpacked. I tried to contact them since they claimed to be insured, but they never answered my emails and calls. Very disappointing since they talked a good game initially and had high (clearly undeserved) ratings. I would recommend that anyone avoid them completely.

I was in the Army for 7 years and had 4 moves in that time, plus a couple more since then. I have had some good and some bad moving companies... "Top Notch" was just that: great from start to finish! Clarence (I think the owner) called me within an hour of posting on Thumbtack. On a Sunday. He had reasonable rates, and insisted on coming by and seeing my space and belongings to make sure he brought enough packing supplies (which I've been burned by before). He accommodated a second address pick-up. He accommodated a separate packing day. I threw him small curve balls because of my job and weird schedule. No problem. They called ahead, showed up on time, introduced the crew, told me when and how much would be due, so there would be no surprises. My job was smaller than most, but he made me feel like mine was the most important job of the day. They were professional, experienced, polite, and got done early. In my 50 years, literally the best move I've had. And since I'm older, I have better (and more breakable) stuff. If you are moving in and around Metro Detroit, USE THESE GUYS. Gee! I hope I tipped them enough...

Total professionals! We have moved 8 times in the past 10 years and have worked with all kinds of moving companies, these guys were second to none. We had a slight hiccup in scheduling, but they communicated with me throughout and we came to a time everyone was ok with. They moved our boxes and packed the van quickly and efficiency. They were gentle with fragile items and our newly refinished wood floors. They brought all the tools and necessary packing materials to disassemble and protect the furniture in transit. I highly recommend Self Made and would 100% hire them again!!

EXCELLENT SERVICE, CARE @ BEST PRICE I've had a dinning set two expensive leather couches and a leather chair with an antique console to be moved to a storage facility 10 miles away from my house t hat was just sold and vacated. The two man crew was prompt and pleasant arriving and assessing the items before starting the packing/ protection preparation of the furniture. The supplies used for covering, wrapping and containing every item were sufficient to protect all surfaces from scratch, distortion, breakage or weather damage throughout the intended storage in my rental storage unit. The price quotation and the material cost estimates were precise and I did not have any reservations on the honesty of the enterprise. I will definitely recommend white Rose Movers to friends relatives in the future. My overall experience is an outstanding service at an optimum price.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
