I needed some help moving stuff around. I had to get stuff from one garage to another and from one location to another and back into a house following carpet cleaning. They showed up early and were done in 40 mins. So I was able to move some other items to our dumpster. Very nice, clean cut and will certainly call them again to help.

Courtesy Movers made moving day stress free! I had requested a 3 man crew, but Joshua called that morning offering another man that was available if I wanted more help. I jumped at the opportunity to make my move that much faster. Joshua was not present for my move, but the guys he sent did a great job! They were on time, very friendly and professional. They all worked very hard, fast, and efficiently. A 3 bdr house in Kansas City was completely moved into a duplex in Olathe in only 4 hours. They accommodated every request with a smile despite the miserably hot July day. I would highly recommend Courtesy Movers! Thank you for making my move a pleasant experience!

The move was great. I couldn't have picked a better moving company to move me. When my movers arrived they were polite and courteous they introduce themselves and as soon as they did their walkthrough they got started wrapping every single piece of furniture I asked them to wrapped. They disassembled all my beds took very good care of my stainless steel refrigerator. At the unload it couldn't have been better they were amazing if you need a moving company these guys are hands-down the best I would definitely recommend moving Kings to my friends and family. You guys did an outstanding job thank you for the great service.

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.

Wow! Blown away by this team. I was ready to pay more for a regular moving company when I found Piano Solution. They were less expensive and had the right equipment for the job. They were prompt and professional. Got me set-up and tuned the piano. Don't mess with other movers or anything for your pianos. These guys can move and tune your piano in one go.

Stretch Ur Dollar Moving was very careful with my piano and took care to make sure it would get from one location to the next safely. The movers were extremely willing to move items to make a better path and took extra precautions to not damage anything in the house.

Called a few movers before I decided on AFWAT Movers. I'm glad I went with them. The two guys that showed up were fast and moved me in less than three hours. My new house has some sharp turns and I was expecting dents and scratches in the wall. They didn't hit the wall once. I was very impressed with that. A few weeks later I had smaller bedroom furniture delivered and paid a $75 delivery fee and watched as the furniture company "professionals" dinged and dented my walls. I wish I would have had Friends with a Truck move that furniture in. I'm still very impressed with this company. Excellent rates, fast, professional, and nothing damaged, dinged or broken. What more can you ask for?

Great company. This is our 2nd time using One World Van Lines. Friendly staff, great pricing. Did require a “shuttle service” at delivery, but access to the lot was very tight, so it was understandable and reasonable to work out. Movers were on time and gentle with our belongings. They caught our attention on dings and scratches on furniture that were there before placing them in the moving truck. Wrapped electronics carefully. Very friendly all in all. Will definitely be using them again and referring them to all my friends that are moving.

Happy Hour Moving

Happy Hour Moving was amazing! The owner walked through my house and said he could complete the move in 3 hours and they finished at my new house in 3 hours and 15 min in 95 degree heat (also they break down the final hour so we did not pay for 4 hours)! The movers are friendly and took amazing care of my belongings. I told them not to worry about moving boxes into rooms. But at the end of the move, I walked into my baby's room and noticed that all of her boxes were in there. I thanked the owner and he told me he wanted us to be able to get her set up quickly after a long day. It was so helpful to be able to find all of her stuff and get her settled in. They were extremely thoughtful and kind.

I needed a mover at the last minute and really didn't think I would get anyone to help me out on such short notice. They responded quickly and found a time to fit me into their schedule. They came and worked quickly and was professional and friendly eventhough it was the end of the day. I would work with them again.

        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.
