Moving Pros was a great choice for my typical home moving process. They were efficient and worked hard. Only downside was I requested a later start time due to closing on my new house and they arrived early and my time allotment was misquoted by about 4 hours. Movers themselves were great and hustled the whole time.

Steve and crew were super nice. They cut up a huge tree very quickly and in small enough pieces for me to manage moving myself. Even gave me some garden tips. Seems like they know a lot about a lot. I would hire again for sure.

Courtesy Movers did an awesome job! We were moving from a 1400 sq ft house to a 1100 sq ft townhouse. It was a long, long day, but they remained upbeat, positive, friendly, and did an excellent job! I'd definitely use them again!

These guys are the Zappos of moving furniture in and out of a storage container. Even though I made a last-minute request, I was still able to get someone out to help me move stuff. Quick, professional, good customer service on the back end.

I decided to hire Stretch Ur Dollar for my 1-bedroom move based on their quote being much more reasonable than the competition. I was actually a bit nervous that the cheap quote would equal cheap service, but I decided to take the risk and Stretch Ur Dollar proved to be worth every dollar! "Stretch" provided confirmation at multiple points prior to my moving day to let me know that I was on their calendar, and Lee (primary contact/mover) called the morning of to let me know that they were on their way. His communication was very professional and he had a good attitude throughout. In terms of prepping the furniture for the move, Stretch did an excellent job to ensure that everything was thoroughly protected. I was very much at ease throughout the move as they exhibited extreme care throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Stretch Ur Dollar for your moving needs!

Had a great experience with Friends Moving this weekend! Ashley was so helpful, clear, and communicative when booking and pricing. Everything went as she said it would. I really appreciated the confirmation call the day before, and the calls from the crew that morning with updated ETA. The movers were so nice, organized, skilled, and really went above and beyond. I will definitely use them again for my next moving job and would recommend them any family/friends in the area. They made our moving day easy and pleasant.

I called Weekend Warrior Moving to help me move out and into a bigger house and they were just outstanding! I was already having a bad day when my girlfriend decided to cheat on me and eventually I had enough of it so I called them to set up a day to come out and help me move. They're absolutely professional and were really positive friendly people and I can defintely use that this time around. They brightened up my day for sure. Also their prices are very reasonable. If I ever have to move again in the near future I will definitely give them a call no doubt. Thanks guys!

    Rebecca was extremely accommodating, as our scheduled movers backed out at the last minute. She returned my call from the weekend early on Monday and had 2 helpers out by 10:45 that morning. The helpers were later than expected, but worked well. They didn't take direction very well, which was frustrating. I ended up moving things from room to room because they weren't listening to where I asked them to place things. Overall, though, they worked hard, were pleasant and patient with my three young kids running around, and were non smokers, so I'm satisfied.

    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.
