On Call Haul is the company to call if you need experienced movers! We relocated from Atlanta, Ga to Minnesota and I wish there would have been an On Call Haul in GA. It would have saved us so much time, money, and heartache. The On Call Haul guys worked efficiently, they were patient with us trying to figure out where everything went, courteous, and handsome too 😎! This company should defiantly franchise and show the other moving companies how to get the job done.

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!

Awesome moving company! I would definitely hire them again. The company is very affordable, they don't charge the fee to come to your home and leave your home like most other moving companies. The guys were nice, careful, and professional. They were able to book my move the day before my move (flexible team). Great company to move you!

Rob did a great job clearing out all of my construction debris from a concrete stairs and path demo. He was super responsive from the very first contact to the last. He had the best price beating large junk removal companies. He was on time and went a step further sweeping out the area after the removal. There was a small miscommunication where he disposed of a trash can that I wanted to keep, right away he offered to replace it even without me having to ask. He was polite, curious, honest, and punctual. Not sure you could ask for anything more from a small business owner. I would highly recommend him for your project.

This is the first time I used a moving company. Goal Line was the only company to offer to come to the house to give an in-house estimate, everyone else was either via email or phone. Goal Line's quote was right in line with everyone else. On moving day, they arrived on time, began moving items right away, very professional and had a great sense of humor which made things go even better. I would highly recommend using Goal Line with your next move.

Look no further for movers, if you're in a bind and/or have no friends who can come by and pinch in then you have your guys. These men went above and beyond by being on call 24/7 for all our moving and packing needs. Securing our furniture pieces and packing things ever so gently during transit. The best decision I ever made was hiring Promoov.

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.

The front end of our move from Minnesota was flawless. From the moment we met Paul, we were certain this was the right company for us (we interviewed 5 moving companies). Our packers in MN were considerate, quick, and professional. Tami provided us with support throughout. It was a pleasure to work with her. Our only hitch in the moving process was the scheduled delivery date. The driver who delivered indicated that he was on time with delivery and that I (or office personnel) must have been mistaken. Also, they were short-staffed and many items were not delivered to areas I had indicated to them. As I stated; up until the day my household was delivered to my new home, the experience had been outstanding. I did not check the box for punctuality because of the problems experienced at my delivery end. I still would recommend services through Piepho to anyone who asks.

I had movers move furniture, and boxes from garage into upstairs. They did everything very professional. They made sure they did not bang against any walls, they helped put the bed together and that was very helpful. I also noticed they made sure they were bending and lifting properly to ensure no accidents.

I have used Graham Moving a couple of times already, they have been professional, friendly and get the job done. Scott has made every effort to accomodate our needs. I cannot say enough about the crew Scott sends. I have asked for and have been able to work with the same crew on 3 seperate occasions. I will always call Scott at Graham Moving when we need a moving company or simply to have funiture moved around in our home. I do not, and will not hesitate to recommend Graham Moving to my family and friends. Call Scott, you won't be dissapointed!

The movers at AmerApex Moving could not have done a better job moving our belongings over 2,000 miles away. The crew was on time, polite, very careful, and kept the move fun and in good spirits. Nothing was damaged and the price did not budge a penny. Thank you again for making my move across country stress free. I will be recommending AmerApex Moving to all my friends and family!

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.
