Trey & his team are the absolute best. They were on time & ready to work. I had 3 large storage units and they were able to empty them out very quickly. They even combined what wasn't going into our home into one storage unit so that I could get rid of two of the units. They unloaded the trucks and put everything into the rooms that they needed to go into. There was no talking on phones or slow moving. There was no dragging things out to get more money. They worked quickly and efficiently! They were very professional! They took one quick break and went back to work. Moving can be a draining experience but Trey and his team made it so easy. I am very pleased with my experience and would recommend that anyone looking to make moving easier to use Trey & his team.

Trell was the fastest & most careful mover I have ever hired. He was polite & cheerful, even after moving an entire 2 bedroom apartment up FOUR flights of stairs! He was also flexible with his schedule & hapily made extra stops for us to get things along the way. I will definitely use him & his team again. 6 stars :) Thanks again, Trell, we couldn't have done it without you!!!

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!!

Excellent service. I had another cleaning service come out to clean my new home in which is the seller left in a disgusting state and they did not do a good job. After attempting to do some cleaning myself, I decided to contact at a Glance of Heaven stating I needed service today. Moving while being pregnant and chasing after an 18 month old was already challenging, I was not expecting this level of dirt to clean and simply didn't have the energy. They were able to come within 2-3 hours. They did an amazing job. The previous owner had 6 puppies and 3 cats. The house smell like animal urine. The bathrooms look like they haven't been cleaned in months. Dust and dead bugs everywhere. We had a 2-3 month closing period and I'm convinced the seller did not clean since we last saw the house in early January. They cleaned windows including dirt and bug build up in the window sills, baseboards, doors, switches, floors, etc. Every part of the bathrooms was scrubbed down. The house looked and smelled amazing afterward. I literally have no complaints. I will continue to use them every 2 weeks for maintaining my house.

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.

He is pro, he dis-assemble my furniture and assembled in no time. The things were assembled better than it was before. He came alone but and I was skeptical but the way he started taking my furniture I realized he is pro and has done this in past. He took extra precaution when he moved things on hardwood floors and boxes with glasses. He always responded to my questions on time. He has even gone beyond the moving job and helped fix few minor things in house. I have referred few of my friends already to him and does the same because no one can beat his work. Do not look anywhere else and hire this man..

If we could give Jerry's Moving 10 stars, we would....can't say enough good things about them. They did an amazing job moving us from Raleigh to a town 2 1/2 hours away. L.A and Ray did our move and they did a fantastic job. They handled our things with care and worked quickly. Jerry, the owner, and his son both helped to unload and as it was raining they made sure to cover the floors so they wouldn't track dirt in the house. We've never seen a more hard working crew and his price for the job was unbeatable! We highly recommend Jerry''s Moving!!

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.

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.
