They called an hour before the scheduled time and said they would be 2-3 hours later than expected. They finally showed up 4.5 hours later than expected. The reason was sound, but it made everything else delayed so we were up really late for the move. The actual moving was good. The movers were very polite and accommodating. If it wasn't for the delay I wouldn't have anything negative to say about the experience.

AJ and Chris were great to work with! Flat out - moving is the worst. Chris and AJ made everything easy and painless. They had padded and wrapped all furniture for safe and damage-free transport. They were on time, and had the best attitudes. They were very efficient and were flexible with our small timeframe that we needed to get moved. Really great value - I mean, can you really put a dollar value on punctuality, positivity, and hard work? Looking forward to using Paul Bunyan Moving for our next move - big or small.

Chester and Sona had no problem moving us out of our 2-bed apartment into our new home! They packed the truck smart and to the gills & were very careful with furniture even though ours is cheap. They gladly took on the crazy big and heavy items. With their great professional attitudes they made a stressful day that much easier. Recommended with gratitude.

Holleman Hauling offered me the lowest quote for moving a piano out of about 5 businesses. They promptly answered any calls, used texts to communicate when more convenient, were clear about communicating times and locations, and delivered the piano on time, in spite of having to haul it up a full story of steps. The piano was minimally protected, but adequately, especially since it was a free piano. If I was moving a very expensive piano I might want a company that provided more substantial protection, but this was perfect for my situation. They did a great job, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them.

College Moving Labor was excellent. They are one of the more reasonably priced moving companies and it is certainly worth every penny. The two gentlemen that assisted me were prompt with their arrival and made sure to use every last minute to help me out. On top of all of that, they had an excellent attitude which made my move way more enjoyable.

Kaiden and Aaron showed up right on time and brought a trailer even though I wasn't sure if I needed one. In the end it was very very helpful. They were very fast and very strong and efficient. We went right over to where I was moving the items and they reorganized the whole area in no time so there was actually lots more room to put more things than there had been before! aIt is much easier now to access. I would definitely hire them again and highly recommend them. Bonnie

I could not have been happier with Piepho Moving and Storage. They arrived promptly on move day. There were three movers, who were very professional, personable and extremely hardworking. They worked non-stop. All of the items being moved were treated with the utmost care; (they wrapped many of the items in plastic, to protect them, prior to moving them.) The move was completed on time & for the amount that had been quoted. (No extra charges.) I would definitely use this company again, and will recommend them to others.

We had a great experience with Amerapex Moving. Alex and his crew were friendly, polite and very professional. We had heard so many horror stories about moving services so we were hesitant to hire one but Amerapex exceeded all expectations we had! They took care of everything including packing some last minute items. Everything arrived on time and great condition. Thank you Amerapex!!

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.
