Words alone cannot express of how great Juan and his teammate was! They were very professional and courteous. These guys didn't stop until the job was complete and it was in the upper 90's the day that they moved me. I've used other moving companies in the past and have had belongings broken and lost and for the price to end up being more once they've arrived. Juan quoted me a price and he stuck to it and everything was there and no damages. They treat your belongings with care and they make you feel as if you've known them for years. I highly recommend Juan and his team!!!!

First off, the two guys who came to help were so well mannered and willing to help! My mom and I didn't have to lift a finger. They even helped me put my bed together (i would be sleeping on a mattress if it wasn't for them!) I went thru about 10 moving companies before I settled on campus bellhops. They gave me a great price and made the entire experience a whole lot easier!!

Evelin and Ashley work great as a team! I hired Glance of Heaven for a one-time cleaning of my apartment when I was moving out. Despite having to work around many boxes and some furniture pushed into the middle of room, they did a terrific job on the baseboards and crown moulding in every room. The bathroom fixtures and appliances in the kitchen were gleaming and the floors looked wonderful. They really did a bang up job in the kitchen, wiping the cabinets inside and out, cleaning the fridge and freezer, scrubbing the counter tops. I would heartily recommend their services!

John and his team at Faith and Glory Movers were phenomenal. I hired John and his team a week before my move so it was short notice but he was very accommodating and insisted he would make time to help with the move. On the move day John said that he would be at my house at 8:30 and arrived promptly on time. After arrival John and his team quickly went to work and didn't waste any time starting the process. They were fast and efficient and made the entire experience very easy for me and my girlfriend. They wrapped all the furniture to ensure that there were no damages and we're very careful while moving things out of the house. The thing I like most about this experience was that I informed John I was on a budget and needed to have the move done within a certain time frame. I was skeptical but to my surprise John and his team was able to move and stay within the time frame that I have provided. This was a great experience and I would recommend Faith and Glory Movers to anyone looking for a reliable moving company. I will definitely be using John again in the future.

Pat and Justin did an awesome job of moving furniture. They are punctual, courteous, and super professional. I am very satisfied with their work. They took care of my furniture very well by wrapping them up with multiple levels of plastic wraps, and loading and unloading very carefully yet efficiently. You cannot go wrong by hiring them for moving. What also impressed me was that they donate their earning to charity. It is very kind of them doing charity while working hard. You cannot ask for better moving company than this one.

Mr. Hodge packed my apt very efficiently. He can benefit from more help with packing and unpacking/moving but he was very effective with the help he did have. It took longer than I expected but none of my belongings were missing or damaged. i would recommend him.

Bobby runs a fantastic operation. Excellent communication before the move, prompt arrival and efficient use of time. A reasonable hourly rate is all inclusive (truck rental + 2 movers, no hidden fees), and an incredibly reasonable (yet optional) insurance/ liability policy in case something were to happen during the job. The crew took great care of my possessions during the move and were highly professional throughout the entire day. I would definitely recommend The Movers on Demand to anyone looking for moving/ transportation needs in the area.

Craig provided excellent service! I was in the process of packing to move out of state but was overwhelmed by the enormity of what needed to be packed. Craig quickly responded to my ad on Thumbtack. We arranged a time convenient for me. He arrived on-time and quickly set me at ease with friendly conversation. He was professional and went out of his way to assist me in getting packed and ready to move. He readily un-installed drapes, packed, lifted and organized boxes, and did everything necessary to get me on track to move! WOW! I am so grateful for his help! I would recommend this for everyone. I am only sorry that I didn't get his help sooner.

When I put out an APB for help, Got Chores was the first to respond with a reasonable rate, dropped everything and came to my aid. They worked hard and quickly to help me move boxes from my old residence to my new. They were such a pleasure to work with. Very kind and personable. You don't find people willing to help at a moment's notice anymore, especially a Sunday afternoon. Thank you sooooo much! I will definitely call you first for future projects!

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.
