The 2 movers were younger guys and they were quick and strong. Although I had to help them with moving some things over my balcony to get it out our townhouse, i didn’t mind and it was actually fun. One of the drawers on my daughter’s dresser broke somehow during the move so I submitted a claim and Hornet Nest went above and beyond what they legally were required to do and sent out a repairman to fix the drawer! I would recommend and use them again

Referred by a co-worker. Great experience & crew. Last minute move due to the sale of my current home, Marla and her team was able to get us out of our old place and into the new without any hiccups very efficiently. The team of movers were professional and actually fun to deal with at such a stressful time. We will be calling on Get it Home to move us again!! I have already started recommending to my friends.

Classic Home Billiards did a wonderful job moving & installing my pool table. They were able to accommodate the one day I was available to be home for the movers - picked up the table, and had it installed like new in no time. They even refelted the table.

After weeks of dealing with the big box movers, we decided to use GMP for move from Charlotte to Charleston SC, and could not be happier with our decision. They were on-time, extremely efficient, and professionally packed all of our belongings for this long distance move. Chris and his team are truly experts at this, and their price was 1/3 less than the other big box movers. Don’t be fooled into thinking you need a huge brand to get a great value.

I have been very happy with the pick up movers team. To begin, they sent several timely, organized emails after I booked them clarifying the details of how the day of the move would go (what time they would arrive, their price estimate, etc.). Moving is always stressful and their emails let me know what I should expect and gave me confidence that they were reliable professionals. The day of the move, the pick up movers team arrived exactly on time with a 30 minute warning call so we could be prepared. They were friendly as they packed up the truck, presentable, and very efficient. I was pretty amazed at how quickly they loaded up the truck and how careful they were with our stuff. They packed our large TV screen and other furniture that needed to be wrapped well. When they arrived at our new house, they stopped for a break and ate some food. They were tidy and nice to talk to --- they all seemed like nice guys with families and I felt comfortable with them in my home. They handled everything very delicately. While packing, I ran out of packing paper last-minute and ended up packing a medium box full of glasses wrapped in thin tissue. Not a single glass broke. I'm very happy with the experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for reliable movers in the North Carolina.

I’m so happy I used this company! This was a cross town move and everything arrived intact and undamaged. The price was excellent as well. Brandon was professional and courteous and was really careful when moving my boxes and furniture. Moving is never fun but having a professional mover with a great attitude and excellent customer service helps tremendously.

I move all the time for work so I have experience dealing with moving companies and I can honestly say Robert and his team were awesome! Although they were running a little late due to the afternoon thunderstorm, they absolutely made up for it with non stop hard work. They took the extra effort to make sure all my furniture was protected, then set up every room in my new home which saved me 2 weeks of time trying to carry boxes all over my house. Would definitely use you guys again and would recommend you guys to everyone. Thank you for all you guys did yesterday!

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use 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.
