I had the opportunity to use this moving company for a very tough move this past weekend from the 3rd floor of my apartment building all the way down to the first floor on the opposite end!!! They came through for me with professionalism, first they gave me a quote and asked me what my budget was and was able to work with my budget! Then the four movers came to home on time in fact a little early even to set up! They worked hard, they did the whole move in 3 hours and I still only had to pay the flat rate we discussed nothing more or less. The movers were very polite and very careful of all of the items moved out of my old apartment into the new one and were very organized and professional! I would definitely not only use this company again but I also recommend it to anyone else whether you are doing a small move within your apartment building or moving across town! My mother was there during my move and will also be using the services and spreading the word! For the price I paid they over exceeded my expectations!

Wow! TK movers exceeded our expectations down to every detail. From wrapping our furniture to reassembling it, right down to the pads/rugs they lay down to protect the flooring of our new house! The 3 person team was so very careful with our things, and they never seemed like they were in a hurry to move on to the next job. Very communicative when moving our things to the right place/room. Professional and friendly! I would recommend TK Movers to anyone that needs the "whole package" moving services. My experience from beginning to end was excellent! I will definitely use this company next time. Thanks TK Movers, you made our moving day MUCH LESS stressful! Sincerely, Miguel and Stephanie

1st Choice Movers were great to work with! The weather was exceptionally bad- 1st real snow storm of the year. They were very careful to cover the carpets. Everything was moved with care and they asked me where I wanted everything. We had a specific budget in mind and they got everything done and stayed right on budget. The guys that came were professional and friendly. They brought furniture wraps, shrink wrap and the use of 5 wardrobe boxes. Really, really pleased, I would not hesitate to recommend them.

I had moved out of state and needed some miscellaneous items I couldnt fit into the Uhaul removed from my garage. I got ahold of Rob, and he nearly had the job done before I hung up the phone. Not only did he dispose of them...but he cleaned out the garage as well, very professional. Excellent Service - Highly Recommended

Paul Bunyan Moving made my relocation a fairly seamless process. Not only did AJ respond to all my questions quickly, but he showed up early to the moving appointment. Both he and his associate were friendly, helpful, worked quickly, and got the job done on time and within budget. I am very pleased with the outcome and recommend them to anyone needing moving services.

Aaron and Jake were the assigned movers and they did a great job in moving my stuff. They are super quick and they did everything in under 3 hours which in my past experience took easily over 4 to 4.5 hrs . They put the furnitures in required places and worked out a very tight corner to out my sofa in the basement . They can still better themselves by bringing wrapping materials as well. They do have all blankets and none of my furnitures got a single scratch . Very happy and recommend everyone to try them out for their moving needs .

Chris is the best. We interviewed several movers for our move across country before we hired Chris and he is worth every penny. His professionalism, and work ethic are second to none. He gets things done on time and on budget. All your belongings get packed neatly and professionally. Watching him and his team work is a surreal experience. What would take you weeks they get done in a day and all you half to do is sit back and relax. He will take extra care with your antique furniture using a combination of blankets and shrink-wrap. Watching him shrink-wrap, is like watching an artist paint, or a dr perform surgery. Equal as impressive is his ability to pack a storage unit to its very max, utilizing every cubic inch of space. He even took special care of our old Vw bus. As he drove cross country high cross winds threatened to tear the roof off. But with some quick thinking and some synches, the roof was secured and he was on his way. We are very grateful to Chris and his team for making our move as easy as could be and we would recommend him to anyone else in a heart beat.

Daymakers moving moved me and my husband from our old house to our new house this past summer. I was pregnant at the time so the help was more than appreciated. The workers were respectful and completed the job in a timely manner. They were gentle with our boxes and furniture. We are so grateful for daymakers moving because they made the job so easy and worry free for me and my husband. I would recommend them and do recommend them to any one who is moving.

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.
