I needed movers to help move my 2 bedroom 1100 square foot home, into a 3 story 1600 square foot town home. After spending hours researching moving companies , I settled on On Call Services and I'm very glad I did! J.T. and Andre were right on time on the busiest moving day of the year (June 1st.) They went over the paperwork right away, listened well to instructions, wrapped all furniture with care, pointed out any existing damage before moving an item, and carried large, heavy items up and down many flights of stairs. They were professional, funny, careful, and worked at a steady pace. It took 7.5 hours to get it all done, only stopping for short water/coffee/donut breaks here and there. I was actually surprised they didn't take more breaks... We ran into a small issue of fitting everything into the 20 foot truck, but the guys rearranged a few things to make sure it all fit. They even assisted with final placement/assembly of some heavier items in my new home. Words I would use to describe this company: reliable, professional, safe, affordable, friendly! Even though it took longer than I had initially anticipated (doesn't it always?!), J.T. and Andre helped everything go smoothly. I also want to thank Dominae and Tasha for being so courteous and thorough on the customer service side. They were so friendly when speaking with me, and sent a thorough confirmation email of my requests, charges, deposit amount e.t.c., after booking. I'd highly recommend On Call Services to anyone, and would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Tanner and Hunter were very easy to work with. Tanner responded very quickly to the initial inquiry and all questions after. On the day of the move they were on time, very professional, and very careful with my belongings. This was my first experience hiring and using movers and will definitely use them again in a couple of months when I find a new place and need to get my stuff out of storage. Highly recommend!

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!!!!

I can't say enough positive words and sincerely heartfelt statements about these guys! We have used their services before and we highly recommend Made Easy Movers to anyone we know looking for the best quality movers that one can feel confident in their moving process and being completely successful!

I give these guys a 5 star and I will definitely be using Made Easy Movers on my next move. Great job guys and thanks for the hard work!

Both Chris and Jamie showed up to conduct my in-home quote -- nice touch. I'd had 3 previous quotes and total move weight estimates, and Chris's weight estimate was spot-on (the other 3 were low, which might have ended up costing me extra had I chosen any of them). Chris moved all of my stuff, point-to-point, from MN to AZ, on ONE truck and in 3 days. And he did it for less than the national brand name movers, who each gave me a 5-11 (business) day delivery window. Completely professional operation -- not one item was damaged or broken in the move. And Chris personally set up both my beds and reattached the heavy mirror on my dresser in my new home. I have not one shred of buyers remorse after contracting Robinson Moving Systems. I had an extremely tight deadline -- less than 4 weeks -- to move all of my stuff across the country to start a new job. No way I could have pulled it off without Chris and his crew's help. They earned every penny. And then some. Moving might be life's worst chore. But if I have to do it again, I'd choose Robinson Moving Systems in a heartbeat. It's a no-brainer.

I have used Piepho twice now. Once for a move to California, and once for a move a few blocks away. In both cases, Paul Rubinsak did a great job putting together a package that met our needs and budget. The movers were very professional and courteous. Would not hesitate to use them again.

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.

We recently used Daymakers to help move a family member's belongings out of an apartment and into storage. I grew up in the area, but live in Atlanta now, so we were coordinating from long distance. They made it SO EASY. I've used maybe five different moving companies in the last ten years and Daymakers was hands-down the best. I would recommend them and use them again without any hesitation. They were early (I've never had a moving service be on time, let alone early), the staff was incredibly professional and courteous, and they handled everything with care. I never once felt like something would break or wasn't being handled as if it were their own belongings. These guys hustled, as well. Sometimes with hourly service, you get movers who take their time, trying to rack up the fees. Not the case with Daymakers. They were efficient and exceeded my time expectations by over an hour. Also, I loved that the price included everything - the labor, the truck, and the moving blankets. Other services will tell you something low, but then tack on fees for mileage or blankets. I learned that they hard way before. Daymakers was up front and everything was inclusive, making it very easy to know what we would pay in the end. Lastly, setting everything up with them was easy. Great communication. All around it was the easiest moving experience we have had, and during a particularly stressful time at that.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
