SEKA movers were fantastic. They sent me 2 movers and a huge truck for my 2 Bedroom apartment. I requested full packing of my belongings. They packed all my valuable glassware and antique dishes. Movers arrived on time. All my furniture was covered with furniture blankets and stretch wrap materials, which I really liked. Mattresses were covered to be protected from dirt, and beds were taken apart and reassembled back at my new townhouse. I really liked that they treated my furniture as their own. They provided 5 wardrobe boxes for FREE, which I used to move my clothes. NO DAMAGES to my Furniture and apartments. Very professional and reliable movers. I definitely recommend these guys to anyone.

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

My roommate and I decided to move to a new place, I'd lived in my previous apartment for almost 11 years, and my roommate was there several years prior to my arrival. Needless to say we had quite a bit to move, and not a lot of time to figure it all out. I generally like to solidify arrangements well in advance, if at all possible, however my roommate hasn't quite mastered that art. Kadeem was very patient. Kadeem and a nother gentleman arrived ready to work. Most of my belongings were packed and ready to go. My roomie had a few pieces of older, heavy furniture. They were tough peices to move, not only due to weight, but size and the fact that we lived in the second floor. It was also raining that evening. I'm not big on writing reviews, however when one is warranted, I like to do my part. Asap Movers were efficient and professional. I would have no reservations in recommending them for any move.

Finding Jeff and Raul was the best Christmas surprise/miracle I could have hoped for! These guys were SO careful--probably even more careful than me--moving my stuff: packing it and being careful not to scratch my hardwood floors. They took their time to do things right but didn't waste any time, either. They are clean, efficient, appropriately friendly and I will definitely use them again when I need help moving anything. They had moving blankets, helped me pack a few things. I really can't imagine better movers. They were great with working with my schedule and didn't give me a bad time when I only needed them to move a few things (which turned out to be a lot more things than I thought I had!). Their rate was excellent.

I was worried to hire movers as always, but after conversation over the phone whith Stefan my concerns disappeared. He sounds reliable and knowledgeable. He recommends professional crew: 4 men and a truck and gave me reasonable estimate. Movers were Fantastic, they packed my furniture, disassembled my bed and by suggestion of crew lead I decided to protect some of my valuable furniture in double plastic as a protection against humidity and mold,because I'm planned to keep my stuff in storage for a few months. To move out of the storage I will definitely call to Ample Moving and I hope Stefan will accommodate my relocation again!!!

Highly recommend! My boyfriend (now fiancé) and I were moving in together and a colleague recommended Blue Moving. After contacting Blue and discussing our move, they sent us a quote that was in line with our expectations so we hired them. They took the time to listen to our needs and sent the right people to handle the job. The process was efficient and the movers were friendly, on time and, most importantly, took excellent care of our furniture / personal items. We plan on using Blue Moving again if we end up buying. I don't write reviews often but felt compelled to share since I've had a few terrible experiences with other moving companies when changing apartments in Manhattan / Brooklyn.

Most movers are late and wishy washy and don't bother to keep you in the loop, at least in my experience. Well, we were scheduled for 9am, and not only were the crew from Tony's not late, they actually showed up a full half hour early, ready and raring to go. Here's how good these guys are. My wife and I had literally been up all night trying desperately to get everything packed but were woefully behind schedule. When Philip and his crew arrived, I explained to them we were late and to please just take everything that was packed, and we would just handle the rest ourselves the next day. As it is, we had grossly underestimated how many boxes we had, and were probably already over the number that our quote had been based on. Instead of being glad they'd have less work to do, Philip actually had his guys building boxes for us and encouraging us to just fill them while they worked so we'd have less to do ourselves the next day. I was exhausted and had already given up, but these guys literally motivated me to get a second wind and I must have given them a dozen extra boxes to take. Probably more. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking, ok, well this is gonna cost me. They have a flat rate, but we had exceeded the estimate by a large margin. These guys took a 220 lb CRT television like it was no big deal. Anyway, when the time came to pay up, a full five hours later, the price was unchanged. I can't imagine how much extra materials they burned through, but they didn't charge us a penny extra. Better, they had our TV wrapped in a blanket, and since our apartment was still pretty much under construction, they didn't want to unwrap it and leave it at risk, so they just gave us the blanket to keep so the TV wouldn't get damaged. This is the kind of place Tony's is, and Philip and his crew in particular. They were the nicest guys you can come across, never had one complaint or negative word to say. Oh, and about that price. It wasn't like some compromise where we decided to pay more for better service. This was a rock bottom price, by far the lowest estimate we could find. I can tell you at least one place estimated THREE TIMES the price. Another, well-regarded moving company quoted us double and said anyone who quotes less will upcharge you at the last minute when you have no choice. Not only did these guys not do that, but they had every opportunity to and chose not to. I really can't say enough good things about these guys. If you have any doubt whatsoever, drop it. I absolutely assure you they are the real deal. By far the best movers I have ever seen in action. I will use them exclusively going forward, and will recommend them to everyone I know who needs movers. You'd honestly be a fool to go with someone else. And I'd ask for Philip, personally, if I had to do it all over again. He wasn't just patient, but went out of his way to reduce our obvious stress. This is the place you want to go with, take my word for it.

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.

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.
