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!

Very efficient! First of all the movers were 15 minutes which is a huge plus. They didn't waste any time moving my belongings and finished less than 2 hours. I highly recommend them

This was my first big move and my first time hiring movers. Movers-For-A-Cause exceeded my expectations in every way. My husband and I were anxious and not-quite-finished packing when our three movers arrived; they were friendly, funny, efficient, and patient. All of our items were treated with care and arrived safely. Our movers made the moving process smoother and more pleasant than expected, and their calm, professional energy eased my family's anxiety from the moment they came through the door.

We just used Great Movers for our local move and we were so happy with the entire process. We did a lot of research, received quotes from many companies. We decided to go with Great Movers. Moving team reached on time, they were quick and professional. Moving is usually a nightmare but our move went so smoothly. We will be using them again and we also recommend to our family and friends.

I had a wonderful experience with this moving company. I reached out to David Wright for a last minute move and he was able to secure 3 movers and a truck within a few hours. The movers andie, john and wayne (i believe i got the names right) called when they were 5 minutes away and showed up on time. They were very friendly, helpful and professional. They got the job done with no hesitation! They even knew strategies on how to get certain furniture out of my doorway, which was very narrow. I am so thankful to come accross this moving company. The owner David even reached out to me during the move to ensure that it was going okay. I truly appreciate that as well! I am beyond satisfied with my experience and I will recommend this company to others! Definitely worth every dollar that was spent. Keep up the good work!

I work for Wayfair and had a customer that needed some heavy boxes moved that were delivered. I reached out and found Asap Movers. Kadeem got right on it and drove 2 hours to get to the customer and take care of the boxes same day! I highly recommend him! I will be using him next time I have need in NJ. Thank you, Kadeem!

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.

Incredibly easy to work with. Everything was straight forward, they were very competitive and extremely fast in their responses. On the move day, the movers arrived in front of our building half an hour earlier, were efficient, patient, and professional in every possible way. Unpacking done – not a single item was broken or damaged. I will be recommending these guys to anyone who asks for a mover.

We had to go for a professional movers considering the volume of our stuffs. So, I searched the net and finally booked Bluebell Relocation for the move. I was actually looking for a fast but affordable move, which I got in the end because of Bluebell Reloctaion. Their movers were very fast and accurate too. They were committed, honest, focused, skilled, innovative, polite and most importantly willing to perform well, which reflected at the entire move. It was a very quick and accurate move in the end.

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.

They sent 4 men to do the job and everyone of them were friendly, courteous and efficient. They handled all of my stuff and packed and taped my furniture with care. I have already recommended them to my brother who is moving next month. I don't usually give recommendations but they deserve it. One of the movers gave us a little "concert" on my piano after they were done and we thought he was awesome. Highly recommend!

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.
