Very professional and accommodating even though I had a very complicated move. The support staff provided prompt feedback. And the team of movers were fantastic. I cannot believe how fast they wrapped and loaded everything. All my stuff arrived safely, even a HUGE fragile mirror. The only casualty was the bolt for my bed frame; couldn't find it when I was setting it up. Overall, 👍👍

Movers showed up a few minutes early. Assessed everything that needed to be moved and confirmed the pricing with me. They made sure we checked the rooms so that everything we wanted to take was gone. They worked quickly and the entire moving process was great. I wish I had found them earlier to move all of my stuff. The guys were very pleasant and unloaded the truck with care. Will definitely be using them in the future and recommending them to anyone who needs a moving service.

We had a great experience with Seka Movers and the crew that moved us. Daniyar, Alex, and Azamat arrived promptly at 8:00, and they got right to work. They finished the entire job in four hours, less time than we had expected, and they were very professional and personable. We highly recommend them!

Moving from one county to another can be daunting and loaded with unforeseen hassles. However, when done with seasoned and professional movers the unbearable is precluded and the process a breeze. That was my experience with this company. They dealt with two people on my end in scheduling and the actual job. The scheduler to all the info and set in motion with one day notice. The three gentleman arrived on time, assembled, loaded and moved--no mishaps or scratches. Myself and my colleague were both pleased and felt they exceed expectation. The price was great, but the service exceptional. The name says it all. Will definitely use them again.

When i had to move i was all alone. I decided to hire the best movers in town so that i can give them whole responsibility of my move. I simply requested on thumbtack and i got several quotes from different pros. I carefully read each of the estimate and give them a call to everyone to fully understand terms and everything about move. I called Great Movers and then i didn't feel need to talk or search for any other movers. They were providing moving service at relatively low price. Movers showed up right on time and they were so professional that in 1 hour my belongings were packed into boxes and then we moved to new house. I am glad that i found them.

Lisa was so wonderful and easy to work with from the initial phone call. However, the day before my move, her manager had her call to tell me they would be charging me $200 more than the agreed upon quote. When I spoke to the manager, he only escalated the situation, making me tell him to cancel the move all together. Lisa called me back, and SHE made it right. She is the ONLY reason I moved forward with this company. When the movers got to my house Phil was on top of everything and made sure I was at ease, and relaxed. Everything about this company was wonderful EXCEPT that horrible manager.

Let me just start by saying i just reached out to Ron yesterday afternoon, Boom! This morning at 9 am they were here. Moved me in 2 hours flat! I must say it was all my heavy stuff including a double door fridge and a HUGE fireplace (which i cherish). Also moved and hooked up stoves (which is not a movers job) They were great and I'm definitely using them again!

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.

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.

The movers themselves were great. They arrived right on time, they worked efficiently, were friendly, and everything went smoothly. They did end up taking about 2 hours longer than I was quoted, but I never felt like they were wasting time. I did have some frustration working with the office staff prior to the move though. I understand there were some unusual circumstances going on, and that made preparing everything beforehand stressful. But this lead to us really stressing out right until the day before the move. They were apologetic and did their best to make up for the mix-up, but the last minute back and forth, combined with the fact that the quote ended up being short by about 40% the actual final cost (mostly because of the added 2 hours, but also partially because of additional fees that were glossed over) make me feel it necessary to take out 1-star here. I think I also noticed in some reviews others were offered to have someone come to the site to assess everything to help make the quote more accurate. This wasn't offered or at all mentioned to us and may have helped reduce that planning/cost frustration significantly. Between the above and the fact that it took them a couple weeks to even tell us there was a mix up, we would probably have given 3.5 out of 5 stars, if it was an option.

When other movers completely failed to show up, Brig and his team were willing to come in on the double and kept me from a bad situation. They're people-oriented people with truly exceptional customer service ability, and they worked fast and reliably to move even heavy and awkward items undamaged across town. My fragile electronic equipment, too. Every step of the way, I felt as if my things were in good hands. I can't say enough positive about this company; they're simply the best movers I've worked with and I'll seek them out when I have to move in the boroughs again.

These guys are spot on. We highly recommend them. They are much more affordable than others and get the job done extremely quickly and reliably. I’ve hired other movers before who were more expensive and way slower and they were able to accomplish more for less in less time. They are very responsive and communicative. Truly a white glove service. Can’t recommend enough!!!

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.
