Verified review

This was a last minute move that included some very large antiques and some very tight corners. The movers were punctual, professional, and personable. They communicated well at every step of the prep, loading, and unloading process. Their price was completely reasonable and I found them to be diligent - something that isn't always the case when you hire a mover by the hour. All in all, I received great value for money and would definitely use them again. A++

The movers were responsible, efficient and courteous. They called upon arrival and provided a receipt as proof of services. Overall I was really pleased with their work. The only issue was that they never offered to throw away my old mattress from my bed and also did not offer to help re-arrange the bedroom -if needed. Other then that I would recommend them for sure.

I got Jeff and his crew from Thumbtack because I needed movers on short notice to move several bigger pieces of furniture. I had never heard of them and did not know what to expect - although Jeff was responsive and professional on the phone. In short, Jeff and his team were on time, professional, and courteous. He gave me a flat rate, which was a little more up front than others who gave hourly quotes and proposed time estimates. In the end, Jeff's rate was either better or, at least, competitive with the others. He kept to his flat rate and did not charge a dime more. I would use Light Hauling again in the future and would recommend them to others.

Jameson Moving moved my daughter from our home in NJ into an apartment in Philadelphia on Saturday, 8/5/17. They arrived right on time and had everything in the truck very quickly. My daughter moved to the third floor of an old brownstone and the steps leading up to her room are very narrow. This made moving some of the larger pieces difficult, but Jameson Moving got all the pieces up the very small stairway. We were a little hesitant choosing Jameson Moving since they are not a well-known company and fairly new. We are very happy that we did choose them and have no hesitation recommending them to any one needing a moving service.

Man Cave Movers recently moved our pool table from our old place to our new home. They were on time, courteous and did a great job. We also decided that we wanted to change the felt color to match our new game room and they were able to take care of that for us as well. We were overall very happy with their service as well as their price.

I cant say enough good things about Liberty moving group. Derrick was very professional taking my inventory and giving me a great price for my move from New York to Texas. My items arrived on time and they did everything perfect. I have made several moves where I was charged extra charges.The price Liberty moving group was the same price I was quoted. Liberty is definitely a 5 star moving company and I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs a move. Thank you Derrick, the staff and the movers. Sincerely, Jack

Brian and his associate were fantastic! My original movers cancelled at the last minute and I wasn't even sure I was going to be able to find anybody. Brian called me back immediately and came through at the last minute even though he was over an hour away! Brian and his team were super friendly extremely thorough helpful and honestly were true lifesavers during a really stressful time. he even moved me through a huge snowstorm and everything was handled meticulously!! I will most definitely be using him again for any future moves and highly recommend him to anybody going through either a small or large move. they truly were awesome....and who can never confidently say that about their movers??...job well done!!!...many thanks to you guys

We have been doing moving for 20 yrs just moved to the Maryland area


Burke At Work Moving... where we do all of the work! Burke At Work Moving offers everything from professional moving labor to full-service moves that can be tailored to meet your budget. Professional moving labor service options: 1.) Mover/driver -- In case you are uncomfortable driving a larger vehicle such as a moving van/box truck (anywhere in the continental US), or you have friends/family helping you, but you need a pro to help properly wrap/pad/protect your belongings and make sure the moving van(s)/storage container(s) are loaded correctly. Light dis-assembly/reassembly, as well as all necessary moving tools are provided. When items are loaded correctly, the potential for damages are eliminated, as well as efficiently utilizing all available space. And utilizing all of the available space means saving money because customers can rent a smaller storage container/unit or make only 1 trip in a rented moving van that drinks fuel and charges you per mile. 2.) 2-4 professional movers and moving van(s) -- Standard crew for most residential moves where customer packs and boxes their own items. Our crew will pad/protect all items and load/unload moving van(s) or storage container(s)/unit(s). Light dis-assembly/reassembly, as well as all necessary moving tools are provided. Full-service move: 2 to 4+ professional movers -- Customer touches nothing! We pack/wrap your belongings/items, box everything up, load it up, and then unload, unpack, and dispose of unwanted boxes/trash. It includes everything listed above.

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.
