This was the first time I have ever hired a mover in my life! I started my search using Thumbtack - requesting quotes from Local Movers. Ronel from Simply Moving contacted me right away and then worked with me for weeks while I planned and fine tuned my move. She followed up and stayed in touch regularly. When I finally committed to my move date, I told her that I was nervous using a mover because I had heard so many horror stories. I told her I needed Simply Moving to be awesome on my move date - she said they are awesome every day! I loved that response - the confidence! And it was so true! On the move day, they showed up on time, packed and wrapped all the furniture and moved my boxes out to the truck. We made a stop at my storage unit - the guys quickly and efficiently emptied that and then on to the new apartment. At the apartment they got all the furniture up the stairs and into the apartment without a bump or scratch. I honestly couldn't be more happy with my experience and the professionalism that was shown by the Simply Moving Team!

We had two couches moved from a 2 story walk up in Jersey city to UWS. The movers were great. Easy getting the couches down and into the city. Only issue getting one into bedroom in apt. Movers removed legs and couch went in room easily. Would recommend and use this mover again.

There are no words for Reginald and Movers without a Cause. Not only was he a lifesaver, but he went above and beyond and was a gentlemen and a caring person. I live out of the area but needed him for a moving job in NJ. He was so kind and so very wonderful! Thanks Reggie

We just used Great Movers for our local move. I mentioned them that freight elevator is available in my building but on moving day it got out of order which made the job of moving team very difficult since i have many heavy items. But they tried to accommodate me as much as they could. They were super fast even while using the stairs and in less than 2 hours my apartment was empty. They were very friendly and polite. At my new house they asked me each time before placing the items and they helped me with re-assembling of furniture also. They were so efficient and professional indeed. These guys are highly recommended.

These guys were great. No muss no fuss, did what they said they would do when they said they would do it. Sam did the scoping, Eric, Suba, and Marat were the movers. Eric made a few recommendation that made the move go smoother than anticipated. A few unavoidable things happened, but overall it was one of my happiest move( and i've moved a lot) They are worth it

Alex and his team were phenomenal to work with -- I cannot recommend them highly enough. I had sourced quotes from various movers for a local move (under 5 miles) and they had the best price, even with packing/unpacking services. Alex was very responsive and thorough in providing the original quote (and throughout the booking process), and this impressive level of professionalism continued throughout the move-out and move-in. 5+ stars for Outbox Moving & Storage! Thank you for making an otherwise stressful process seamless and easy. I highly recommend using their services!

I really enjoyed working with Alex who set everything up. He was extremely responsive and answered all my questions. The movers were also good. They worked really hard and did not waste any time. My complaint is that they didn't communicate much and did not follow a lot of direction of where I wanted my things. In the last hours, they started combining rooms (for example kitchen with bedroom and living rooms items in the same box) so it was hard to find when unpacking. They also overly packed some items (wasting material), but other things were bare and I'm not sure how they didn't break. But overall, they got the work done which is what I wanted. Be aware the estimate may off. I expected them to be there for 3 hours for my 1 bedroom apt (appliances were not part of the move) and they ended up being there for 8 hrs instead, which put me way over budget.

Our move was really 'seamless' as they advertised. Blue Moving was referred to me by one of my best friends. One of the owners, Mitko, was really helpful in the pre-moving process, during, and after the move. He always kept in touch and we, my husband, two kids and and I, felt very comfortable letting him handle our move. We moved from a large two bedroom in Gramercy down to Tribeca. The movers showed up on time, packed, moved and unpacked all in two days, with no damages!! They took care of our art, furniture and other belongings like the were theirs. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them again in the future.

Movers were 30 min late, but were very apologetic and it didn't hinder the moving. Both were very polite and friendly. They were very very careful and surprisingly fast. I was extremely please. Communication with the company was shockingly fast--they're extremely responsive. Typically I would get a response within 5-10 minutes. They were as flexible as possible given my moving situation and the price was fair. Overall I am very very very pleased and if I move within the area again, I will definitely use these guys again if I can. Best moving experience I've had thus far.

Considering they're charging by the hour the movers were working at an exceptionally slow pace. One of the movers kept stopping completely tp chit chat and flirt with me and show me his hobbies on his phone, or was wandering around aimlessly with one object not knowing where to put it down. Another mover broke the leg off of one of my wardrobes and took a half hour detour to get tools to replace it, then spent an hour of his time just putting the foot of that wardrobe on to the furniture again. Even with a slight discount due to that fact, I felt like having 3 people move a small room of stuff to a studio 2 miles down the road to the new apartment should not have taken more than 4 hours.

I waited until the last minute to plan my move (days before), and Moved help me figure out everything from clothing donations to negotiating a great price on quality movers. This was also my first time using movers and my Moved moving assistant, Erin, was able to answer all of my questions about the process. Truly all I had to do was download the app, tell them what I needed and they made it happen. App is also very easy. Overall great and would definitely use them again/recommend to others stressed about a move!

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.
