Jay and his crew far exceeded our expectations. The closing date changed on us a week before the move and Jay was able to be flexible enough to make it all work anyway. We used both their packing services and their local move services. Every one from First-Rate was just that, first-rate. They were professional, friendly, courteous and polite...down to earth and easy to communicate with. We thought there would be no way to fit our whole house belongings in (2) 26 foot trucks but with Jay's masterful packing skills we were totally impressed with how accurate the quote ended up being... obviously, not their first rodeo. We had specific labels on the boxes with the hopes that all of our things would be brought to the rooms in the new house that we wanted... and they were very conscientious to do that. It is making the unpacking so much easier to do. Our items were moved with care, right to the spots we wanted them. We have used other movers in the past, but we would highly recommend Jay and his company to any of our friends, family (and have already). We'd use them again in a heart beat! Thanks for making this part of our moving experience the most pleasant it could be.

The crew from Hebert could not have been better, professional, personable, and well organized. They quickly assessed the items we had to move and went right to work packing the truck securely. The process of unloading and setting up furniture in our new home was equally efficient. I'm very happy to have found Hebert on Thumbtack and appreciate the reviews and recommendations provided. With so many good moving companies to chose from it's great to have assistance from Thumbtack to help. Having 3 guys in this crew was perfect for getting the job done fast. Hebert did their best and it showed.

A day after moving and taking time to write a review speaks for it's self. From the moment they pulled up they were ready to go. As a single woman I am apprehensive about letting strangers in my home, these men were not only courteous but had a demeanor that really but me at ease. They worked hard, fast and wrapped everything, even items I wasn't concerned about. I didn't have a ton of money to spend on movers and thought I would have a bad experience because their rate is on lower end, not the case, they were great! I could go on but I have unpacking to get back to. Thank you Top Rank Movers for lowering the crazy stress of moving.

John and John helped us move our two-bedroom townhouse into a U-Haul truck, providing impeccable service. I would be underestimating the value of their work if I merely describe it as "helping us," though, since they tirelessly and efficiently moved our 75 boxes of books (plus many, many more boxes and quite a bit of furniture) in only three hours. The crew that unloaded our furniture four states away was so impressed with the way the truck was packed that they mentioned how well everything was arranged--our furniture came out of the truck without a single scratch! I don't have enough words to describe how impressed we were with the work John and John did (and not just with the move, but also with the always prompt and courteous communication I had with John from the very beginning). I would definitely recommend their services to anyone with an upcoming move. We don't intend to move any time soon, but I do wish John and John lived where we live so that we could make use of their services again!

Two movers were on time and professional unloading our two 16-foot storage units and also packing, moving, and unpacking an apartment in the city. They were patient and considerate as we tried to figure out what rooms everything should be placed in. They moved heavy furniture delicately and without breaking a sweat. They worked tirelessly from 8am-6:30pm. Choose these guys for your next move, you won’t regret it!

After recently suffering a back injury, I need to hire someone to help me pack up my house -- as I will be moving next week. Lisa was incredibly responsive and was able to explain her style, services, etc. Once at home, she was extremely efficient in getting my "stuff" organized and in boxes. She even went out of her way to buy things I would need for the move (packing tape, paper, etc. ). I hope to use her again for "unpacking" services when I get settled into my new home. I have no hesitation recommending Lisa for your organizing needs. I couldn't have gotten all of this done without her.

Onilo and Monica did a deep-clean of the 2br 1bath apartment I live at in Somerville. Their work ethic shows through the attention to detail they put into the task. This is the best cleaning my home has received. Most important, they showed up to the job with positive attitudes and an eager, agreeable, friendly demeanor. This is what made their service stand out beyond the task of cleaning - it was a delight to have them over.

I had the movers move 10 incredibly heavy boxes, a few pieces of small miscellaneous furniture, and a futon down 4 flights of stairs, into a moving van, and into a basement in a neighboring suburb. They did all of this very kindly, timely, and generously. They were friendly throughout the experience, and they were incredibly professional in their strategizing and in execution. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that needs this kind of moving service.

John, Mike & Damon packed my kitchen up and I couldn't stress enough to them how fragile & irreplacable my wife's crystal was. John more than reassured me that everything would be handle with care just like it was their own personal belonings. Each box they packed was neatly labeled with my last name, room it was from and the contents in the box. I was really impressed with how they organzied & labeled each box, since I had to go into storage with them for the winter months. John told me they do that incase I need to access any of the boxes while in storage I know which one is which. I kept being a worry wart especially with this being my first time ever that I've put my personal possesions in the care of someone other than myself. John & his crew kept reassuring me that everything was going to be fine and most importantly safe. They shrink wrapped my mattress & even my box spring (which surprised me) to protect it while in storage from dust. When I purchased my new home my closing happened really quick then I called John to tell him I would like to move within the following two weeks or so, he had no problems what so ever to accomadate my needs once again. After they unpacked all my kitchen boxes and got my kitchen completely organized (which I'm so glad I had them do) It was like I was living there for awhile. They reassembled all my furniture that had to be disassembled - I must say I was extremely impressed they didn't need directions to put the stuff back together, nor did they even loss a single screw!!! I can't say enough about how accomadating, stragetic, motivated & hard workers these guys were. If I ever need another moving company I will not hestitate to contact these guys again!! Oh and most importantly ALL of my wife's irreplaceable crystal family heirlooms made it all in one piece and not a single item was broken!!! I will be telling everyone I know that needs movers about ASAP Moving and how great they are!!!

Joy helped me pack up my house for a move to another state. I needed help and boy did she deliver! We finished at least 3/4 of the packing in one day - around 5 hours. She let me know when we were running low on supplies in plenty of time, she was a master packer fitting in a lot of things per box, and she was also a great conversationalist! I really enjoyed her help and hope to work with her again before the final move. I even asked her to come do the final clean to the apartment. You will not be disappointed!

    We had a great experience with Affinity Packing & Moving. I didn't choose Affinity, because we moved out to repair fire damage the insurance company selected the vendor. However, I would use them again in the future. They did an excellent job.

    I have used Jane Lawson Company for almost 20 years. When I have moved house, she has been present and has completely cleaned and unpacked my kitchen, closets, whatever I need help with. She has helped me set up my office's, garage's, sorted clothes, sorted files, helped me file, you name it. She has an eye for what must be saved, discarded or put in an "I am not sure" pile. She is very fast and efficient. She is an energetic powerhouse that does not rest until the job is done, or until I am! At the end of the day she will bring your donations (clothes, etc) to Salvation Army and obtain a tax receipt for you. She will also ensure all items that need to be put in different rooms, are. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help and suggest even trying her for one hour to get an idea of all she can do. It is a fantastic feeling to sort through ones home and be rid of unnecessary or unneeded belongings. Big Fan. Lauren J.

    Who knew the stressful process of making a major move could result in your mover becoming a dear family friend? We found out recently, when a friend had recommended Robert to move our two family households 1,600 miles. My parents were unable to find a house at the time, so they stored their belongings in my new garage. Thanks to Robert, our initial move went so smoothly that when he offered to return to move them into their eventual home, we knew we'd call on him to do just that. Around the time they finally found a house, my sister passed away unexpectedly in the area we had left. Robert so very graciously helped us from afar by packing her belongings and bringing them to us (and moving a friend of my dad's on the way!). I'll always treasure his sensitivity and kindness in helping us unpack my sister's possessions, something we were not prepared to have to do. That's probably more moving than most individuals or families will ever have to do within a span of a few months, but Robert was there for us every step of the way. I cannot imagine how we would have coped without him. Robert's services are not only efficient and very reasonably-priced, he provides personal touches that are truly unique in the moving business. After our initial meeting with him, we were so impressed with the overall proposal, and did not look into any other moving companies. It was the best decision we could have made. On behalf of my parents, brother and two children, we are eternally grateful for his help and friendship! Robert is our mover for life.

    We hired these guys last year to help us get all of our stuff out of a storage unit and unto a truck. They were fast, decently priced and nothing was damaged or broken. I would definitely recommend them. I did notice a review that complained about their appearances and us of foul language. They are movers, not choir boys. They definitely were NOT rude to me or anyone else.

      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 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.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
