I was extremely happy with Moving Pros. The crew was courteous, professional, prompt, and well organized. They treated my possessions with concern and care. They took extra precautions to ensure that walls were not banged. The move came in right on budget and Moving Pros was able to meet my short deadline. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Moving Pros to friends or family.

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 Rock extremely professional they called me earlier in the day saying they were delayed from a move they were at and they would be there to help me as soon. As they can that was no problem with me I understand how things change it happens. When they arrived they busted there butts getting me moved. It wasn't a simple move I was moving from a 9th floor apartment and had slow elevators to boot. These guys had me moved in 3 and half hours. If I ever have to move again. I will definitely call Vet movers to move me and I recommend them to anybody who needs movers very fast very professional and very affordable. Thank you again for the awesome job.

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!

We were referred to A Friend With A Truck by some other friends who said they had a good experience. We had a what I thought was a pretty large move out of the Overland Park area but these guys had no problem with it. They did work all day, but that was expected because the quote for the job ahead of the move was for a full day, they took lunch and a couple breaks but when they were moving they were moving. At the end of the day they made sure we were happy with everything and asked if there was anything else they could do. I appreciated that and at that point we were definitely satisfied and let the guys go home. I really do not know how anyone could do this every day. Thanks for the hard work!

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.
