"Being I live in another state and was choosing a moving company to deliver my furniture from North Carolina to Florida... it was luck of the draw and lots of research and quotes. I chose Ken and K&K Moving and could not have been happier! Let's just say, he arrived exactly when he said he would. He packed up all my belongings and wrapped and protected my furniture. His company arrived exactly when they said they would. It was Ken and one of his employees. They were beyond professional, courteous, kind, and even called me Miss Dianne... let's just say we in South Florida are not used to Southern Hospitality and manners and it was a nice change and pleasant surprise. They unpacked our furniture and boxes, set everything up we wanted set up and put the heavy items where we wanted them. Nothing was scratched, broken or dinged. Everything arrived. No surprises with missing boxes or belongings. They did everything in a very timely manner. I gave them a tip because they surely deserved it! I suggest everyone who is even contemplating a move - either local or long distance as mine was... to trust in my referral and you will be happy you did. I never knew Ken before I called him to get a quote. I know my property manager and cleaning company owner in NC will use his services as she was also looking for a good, trustworthy mover she could recommend to her clients and now she's got one in K&K Moving. As you can see I'm gushing over them because they deserve it. Also.. the quote Ken gave me... is the final price I paid. If any issues came up he told me not to worry, he'd take care of them. He even offered to put my furniture in storage at his expense if needed, but luckily, we didn't. He is a very motivated entrepreneur whose main goal is to get more business via word of mouth from satisfied customers and I've got a big mouth! If I had any issues with this company at all I would be shouting it from the rooftops. But all I can shout is PRAISE! For a top notch moving company who takes his job and his reputation very seriously, and it shows! I recommend Ken and his company K&K Moving 100%. I only wish he was located in Florida so I could recommend him down here! Thank you so much for a job well done. I couldn't be more pleased and thankful for a stress free smooth move. My unbroken mirrors, unscratched furniture, all items accounted for delivered on time... and most of all I.... THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE! In closing, I encourage anyone who finds my referral helpful and hire Ken and K&K Moving to give he and his employees a tip for a job well done if you feel the same as I after your move is completed. They are very reasonable in price compared to the other 10 quotes I got. No added on anything to the price quoted. For their determination and effort and keeping their word - what they promise is sent in writing and it is adhered to. People with those standards and loyalty to customers... deserve a tip for a job well done. Thanks again Ken! I hope this helps you build your business because you truly deserve it. I promise... I do not know Ken at all... first time I met him is when he showed up in my driveway to deliver my furniture. This referral is for real! I'm a real customer! Dianne from Florida"

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 it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving 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. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.

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 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.

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.
