These guys were great! We were just moving from an apartment to a house, not very apart. The movers were on time and got started working right away. I was quoted at 2 hours and they did it in 2:15. Reasonably priced and efficient. First time using movers and if I do in the future I'm going with Moving Pros!

Installation of Double oven and removal of the old double oven. Steve responded quickly and came out same day. Had to enlarge opening by 1/4 inch requiring pulling it back out and required moving the refrigerator. Steve did this without comment. Proper installation and wiring. Would refer Steve to anyone.

I Hired Courtesy Moves last min to move me out of my 3 bedroom home. Josh responded very quick and had my move book for the next day... The movers showed up 15 min early and begin moving our furniture as soon as they arrived. I was excited to see they protected all of my breakables and didn't stop for a break. I highly recommend Courtesy Mover and would hire them again for my next move!

The pricing was competitive and the crew was very good. It took the 3 men 7 hours this move where my last movers took 2 days and about 13 hours. Same stuff just a better company and crew. If you want something done fast, call Metro Wide like I did.

I had to change the day yet the message didn't get to the movers. They were so nice and confirmed the new date. The second set of movers were helpful , friendly, worked quickly. We paid them the mover charge and tip...later finding out that was not the way to arrange . payment. The moving company charges our credit card. Kindly, the moving company took care of this for us and vowed to improve communication on this issue.

Mickey was great at handling even my last minute request of adding another mover after I quickly realized we had WAY more to move than originally thought. He was great about responding even on a holiday when he didn't have to. He was accommodating to our travel through snow and late start to getting to our destination and was flexible on time. His employees were kind, quick and efficient. Never once did any of them complain we were 3rd floor or that they were freezing, and I know they were.... it was 10 degrees out today! I'd HIGHLY recommend him for your moving needs and would rehire him for future jobs without a question.

These guys were amazing! They moved everything very efficiently and carefully. They never stopped moving even on a day over 100 degrees outside. They were very personable and courteous. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing movers and I will use them again the next time I need movers as well.

Great, affordable moving company! I've used them twice now. Both times the two movers were friendly and prompt. No damage to any of my furniture (which is extra impressive considering one location was a three story walk-up with difficult turns). I will definitely call them if I ever move again.

I cannot say enough great things about this company. Everyone that I spoke to on the phone was so polite and informative, and everyone that moved me was quick, positive, and helpful. I was very anxious and hesitant about using movers for the first time, and the staff at Always Helpful Movers and Ministries quickly put my mine at ease and showed me I had nothing to worry about. I was very very pleased with my move.

Laura B, March 18, 2104 This was my first time hiring movers. And they were great!! They wrapped the doorways to make sure they didn't scuff anything. They brought two movers that were the most polite gentlemen I've ever met. They loaded all of my odd shaped items like my couch, entertainment center, and bookshelves first then loaded all my boxes last. They packed the truck very well wrapped all the items in the truck so nothing would get scratched. Great company I will recommend this company a hundred times over!!!

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 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.
