82 friends 17 reviews 4.0 star rating 12/29/15 I have a lot of good things to say about Dyno Moving and the movers who assisted me in my recent move from LIC to West Harlem on a gross rainy Thursday morning. I'll start with the the positives before explaining why they were docked an otherwise well-deserved 5-star review. THE GOOD: --Their prices are very reasonable. For 3 movers (very fast, efficient and qualified guys) and a van, I was quoted $75/hour for a 2 hour minimum and a $75 travel fee. I was only moving a studio's worth of stuff, and mostly everything was medium to medium-large sized -- no huge cabinets, sofas or anything like that, so I figured it would be finished quickly. Other companies quoted me upwards of $450 for 2 men and a truck, some were flat-rate or hourly. Either way, it was double the price almost every time. --They're very efficient. The job actually did get finished in 2 hours, even considering the light rain. Granted I went from a 2nd floor walkup to a ground floor apartment, but even so, I was pleasantly surprised. From start to finish -- including traveling from West Harlem and unloading, it took them 2 hours flat, for which I was very impressed. There was no stalling or chit-chatting, and they were loading things on their backs to bring down larger items and heavier boxes, meaning all 3 guys were pulling their full weight in labor. --They were friendly and professional. The movers were generally very friendly and did a great job taping things up and making sure things were packed properly if I hadn't taped it up as well myself. I appreciated their going the extra mile to make sure things were done well. THE BAD: --They were super late. For good reason, I had booked a 9 a.m. move for a Thursday when I should have otherwise been working. I planned on being at work as early as possible after my move, so I needed the move to begin on time. The night before I confirmed with the main manager/owner Alex for the 9 a.m. move. The next morning I waited until 9:30 a.m. before finally calling to get an ETA. No one really knew where the guys were and said they'd call back after talking to the dispatcher. I waited another 15 min or so, still didn't hear back. I called again and was told they were just leaving. I was eventually told it was because there was a ton of traffic, for which I could understand, but I explained that I had been waiting nearly an hour. I don't know if it's because there is no deposit or booking fee that they didn't seem to care much, but there wasn't much of an apology for this, which was really disappointing. If anything Alex told me that I "had to understand...it's the city," and that I "wasn't even paying for this time" which I also found kind of unprofessional. I wasn't heated about the situation but explained to him that while I understood that maybe his movers experienced unexpected traffic that morning, I was incurring a huge inconvenience because my move was starting so late and asked for a discount. He refused and then told me that "we could talk about it later." That didn't end up happening and I paid full price after multiple calls to confirm the movers' ETA and the move starting an hour late. Overall, I was impressed with the actual labor and experience but was disappointed with the management and customer service. I'd probably book again with them again should they offer a similar rate because it could've been much worse.

Booked them the day before to help move furniture from my third-floor walk-up into my pickup truck. They did an excellent job moving an extremely heavy/ awkward piece of furniture and stayed late to ensure it was properly tied down into the truck. It's hard to find moving labor in NYC who doesn't have hour minimums - so they are a great option (job took ~1.5 hours)

Bertie and his crew were a pleasure to work with! Not only did Bertie respond very quickly to my last minute request for moving labor, but we were able to negotiate a price that fit my budget, which I really really appreciate. He went above and beyond with bringing movers who were strong, fast, and careful. They helped to reduce my stress of move to a 6 floor walk up, and they did so in a courteous, professional, and diligent manner. I highly recommend Bertie and his crew and I would definitely hire them again in the future!

I was coordinating moving our office into a bigger space. We needed the electrical wiring and terminations done as well as 2 large TVs mounted and installed. Paul was able to come the same day I requested the job and was finished by the weekend. It was a big job and he got it done quickly and seamlessly. Very professional and responsive.

Awesome moving company! We were moving from 3 bedroom apartment to 5 bedroom big single house. There was an upright piano and countless boxes and stuffs but not once the staffs made any complaint or gave me an attitude. These guys are wonderful. Quick, on time, professional, friendly, careful with all fragile items. They were also quite fast with moving the stuffs into and out of the truck. They even assembled the furniture (bed and tables) they took apart for moving. The moving experience can be very hectic and stressful but Tony's Moving company certainly made the whole thing very smooth as possible. I wholeheartedly recommend this company! A great fixed price and amazing staffs!!!

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 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.
