On Call Services did a great job for me and my family, I relocated to Minneapolis from Chicago 6+ months ago and had a bad experience with the Chicago moving company, so I was extra sensitive with this move (Temporary accommodation to new home). I did a lot of research into local moving companies and On Call Services rated very high in customer satisfaction as well as being the best priced of the 10 companies I reviewed. On Call Services were very easy to work with, I called the company ans spoke to Dominae, she was my contact throughout - it's so nice not to get pushed from person to person. On the day of the move the crew of three movers turned up exactly on time. The guys led by Andre were very helpful and really wanted to make my move as easy as possible for me and executed to my exact requirements. The overall move time was a lot less than I had expected, they worked as fast as possible and weren't trying to extend the time to charge more....I could not have been happier with the overall experience. I was so impressed I booked the company again for another move (furniture from storage) - next week, i'll keep you posted on how it goes. Overall On Call Services are the best priced and highest quality movers I could find in Minneapolis. Finally, because of my job I have had several moves in the last few years, many across country and very expensive - On Call Services rates higher than any other movers I have ever worked with.

Tanner and his crew were great in facilitating our local move. They kept a positive attitude throughout, and never made us feel like it was a hassle. His group is friendly, and are great about accommodating you with where you want things moved and how. Their price was great, and I would definitely recommend them.

We had to move out on extremely short notice and we were scrambling to find a moving company. Spoke with Gail and she could get a crew to help us the next day! This meant we did not have a lot of time to pack anything so we agreed to a third person to help with the packing and moving. Moving day came and I got a phone call from the crew letting me know roughly when they would be arriving. About an hour before the crew arrived Ron came to see what all needed to be packed and moved. He was very respectful and I appreciated the open communication. When Salvador, David, and Ross arrived they immediately got to work and worked their butts off to pack and move our three bedroom house with lots of very difficult furniture to move. They we very respectful and careful with our items and we actually had some fun while doing all this. They took their break after everything was loaded and met us at the storage unit right on time and unloaded the trailer in record time while managing to pack everything in the unit with awesome tetris skills! There were absolutely no hidden fees and we were charged exactly what we were told we would be for the hourly rate and supplies and everything. Well worth the money we paid and we will definitely be using this company again when it comes time to move out of the storage unit and into our next house! Very very impressed with the work they did and will recommend them to anyone! Great job guys!

This was the friendliest most well mannered moving service i have ever hired. I have used 5 different moving services in the last 20 years and this one took the cake. They called me to let me know they were on the way and right on time. I didn't get charged until they arrived and there were no hidden fees like most companies add on. The lead Joseph was very helpful and took charge of the move and his team was very knowledgeable, respectful, and very outgoing! I don't think we stopped talking the whole time! Thanks guys ill be using you again and again as i move a lot for work!

I wish I could give these guys more stars! Showed up 5 minutes early, and did an amazing job with a smile and great attitude. Incredibly skilled, they got the job done SOOOO MUCH FASTER than I was expecting and were joking and laughing with us the whole time. Straight up pricing, no extra hidden fees or upcharges. Just great movers. We couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Paul Bunyan Moving!!!!

What a great job!! Couldn't be happier with the decision we made to go with Chester and his crew. We had 3 movers at our home, they got the truck packed up professionally and quickly - but quality was never compromised. Compared to quotes I received from other movers, Chester was by far the most reasonable and got the job done perfectly. Including moving a washer and drier to our new home and taking that set back to our old home. We highly recommend Chester for your moving needs - you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

Too many items were damaged. They hire out labor with questionable experience. I don’t feel they would be good fit for long distance moving. Local moving is what they should be their focus.

Kaden and the other mover were extremely professional when moving my items. We had originally scheduled for 5:30 (already out of their time slots, because I was working), but because of a cancellation, they wondered if I could reschedule. We got it all figured out, even though I wasn’t actually present for the move, my parents said they were quick and took care of everything. It gave me peace of mind knowing that things went okay. He even refunded me $20 because it was rescheduled on a short notice. Great guys! Would move with them again!

Paul was very helpful preparing an estimate for our move. He helped us with cost saving moving tips (like getting everything ready in the garage to make it faster for the movers). The moving crew showed up on time and worked quickly to move our items. We didn't have a single thing damaged. I highly recommend Piepho Moving.

What a relief to have this company come and help us move into our new house! We had everything already in the garage and in two pods and they were emptied and done within a couple of hours. Very friendly, on time and didn't wreck any furniture or walls. Definitely would recommend

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 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.
