Joyful Movers moved me from a one bedroom apartment in Fayetteville, NC to a two bedroom across town in about 3 hours flat. They offer outstanding prices compared to local movers in the Fayetteville area. I was very surprised at their low mileage rate and hourly fee, both well below moving companies such as Two Men and a Truck. Even with a three hour minimum, I ended up paying a third of the cost of a local mover. The weather delayed them about an hour which I confess is no fault of the movers at all. However, I do recommend they provide some additional follow-through prior to the actual move date. It was somewhat stressful having very little communication with them prior to the arrival of the movers. Bottom Line: Pros. They have outstanding prices, the movers were very quick and thorough, and the customer service was excellent. Cons. There is no official quote or reservation sent out so that may keep you a little uneasy. There is some communication barriers between the office, the movers, and the customer so you may become frustrated on the move day from playing phone tag. Still worthy of 5 stars based on price and quality of work.

Even though Juan confirmed our moving they could not make it until 5hours later the day of moving. Obviously they are tired and could only complete half the job. Had to come back next day later than agreed by 4 to 5 hrs again and completed the job. I appreciate the fact that Juan was able to get the job done but I lost a full day Sunday, I could have been unpacking and could not. They could not bring my bed up the stairs but I was able to get it moved by another mover later in about 20 minutes. This happened because Juan team were tired and could not try to move the bed up in a different angle. I would hire him again if needed but I may put a condition in contract for date of moving:) Juan was very careful with our furniture, he did not take it easy with any of our items and was paying attention all the time. But the other movers were tired and would NOT pay attention. When I mentioned that the other movers are NOT paying attention and damaging or scratching walls, Juan immediately talked to them. He is a good person and experienced.

The truck arrived about an hour late due to traffic and without some of the materials we were promised (shrink wrap). The bellhops moved the boxes to the curb while waiting for the truck, but had nothing to do for the last half hour or so we were waiting for the truck. Customer service did resolve the issue by sending out two of them to buy shrink wrap, which still wasn't quite enough to wrap all of our furniture. They also adjusted one hour of the truck's rate for the time the truck wasn't there, but not the rate for the movers' idle time. The movers were young guys with not a lot of moving experience, but they had a good attitude and listened to what we wanted in terms of furniture wrapping. They didn't seem to be super careful with items marked "fragile," though, nor did they keep garment boxes upright. We haven't opened the boxes yet, so I'm not sure if clothing came unhung or any items broke. As I mentioned above, the customer service agents were responsive when we had issues. However, there were several issues with this move, including with the website. It certainly wasn't the seamless move they advertise. Overall, Bellhops offers a good value for straightforward moves. If you need more full-service moves that include furniture wrapping or packing, or need experienced movers, you may want to look elsewhere.

Christian helped us out with a drywall emergency, after movers put a huge hole in the wall of our rental house during move out. He was quick, professional and dependable, and the repair job looked amazing. His quick work helped get us out of the house sooner than any other estimate from drywall repair specialists projected, and his rate was very competitive. I highly recommend him!

Justin and Darius were fantastic movers to work with. They were very kind and worked very hard to move all of our furniture and put everything in place. We would definitely use Covenant again and would recommend them to others.

Everything went well. The movers were careful with my things and the correspondence between my wife and Mrs. Shawnetta was great. She answered all of our question fast and left us no room to worry about anything. She even called back after the move to see how everything was going. What put the icing on the cake was her cleaning crew ( her self and two of her daughters). This is such a good way to train your children to be business minded and contribute to the new company success. The daughters cleaned my kitchen and all appliances and Shawnetta handled the rest. Thank you for your service to us!

I booked Appropriate Movers about one month before our move-in date. Richard was great at communicating with us in the month before we moved to see if there was anything else we needed and to confirm the date and time. They showed up right on time, were very friendly and professional, and got the job done in a timely fashion. Only one item was damaged- a cheap mirror that I stuffed in a box and did not label as "fragile", so that was my fault. Otherwise they were very cautious with our belongings. I plan to hire them if we move again and plan to recommend them to friends and family. -Charlotte

Alonzo quoted me the a flat price to to load our household (boxes, furniture, and appliances) into a moving truck. I liked this better than the hourly rates quoted by other companies. Due to a deadline, I was concerned about hiring him based on other reviews related to dependability, but he assured me that he would be at our house at the appointed time. He confirmed the appointment, called in advance to tell me he was on the way, and finished on deadline. I only give 4 stars instead of 5 because he did not wrap anything in the provides moving blankets (my fault because I didn't specifically ask him, but I think that an experienced mover should know better), this did cause some minor damage to a few pieces. Overall, a good experience; I would hire again and recommend to others.

    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.
