I hired Simply Moving and Storage to pack the storage containers that I rented. Three gentleman came on time and stayed until all the work was done. Nick and John (I forget the name of the third guy) were AMAZING!! I had VERY large furniture, which they wrapped and moved perfectly! I will certainly call them again in a few months to unpack us at our newly built home!

We needed to have some things moved from our house to a storage unit in the area. they arrived about 40 minutes early which was a little inconvenient (we were in the middle of a moving sale) but they were polite, professional, and worked with us - and around our yard sale and got all of our items safely moved into the storage unit. I'd recommend them to anyone who has a van-sized move. their fan held a LOT!

The owner of Fair Price Movers, David, contacted me right away after my post about help with moving from my storage unit to my new apartment. David is very professional, reliable, and trustworthy business owner. I have experienced not the best service from a previous company I hired and now that I found Fair Price Movers I will recommend them to all my family and friends. On the day of the move; Aaron, Jose, and Luis came to our rescue for a fast and efficent move. All 3 are very hard working men, I'm sure Mr. David Wright is very happy to know how professional his crew is. Thank you so much guys!!

I couldnt have asked for a better service. I booked my move pretty much last minute, we moved in to storage with Kobe and his crew. I found out about Great Movers through thumbtack and I thought this is just hoax. Movers NYC were so expensive but this company turned out the most affordable and clear in prices. My movers bailed out on me because of some unbelievable reason. We scheduled the move with a very small and easy to book process. My move was seamless. I was not prepared at all. Movers packed my belongings into boxes and were kind enough to help me take down ac and TV. but a note: they will not install the tv and AC after the move in to a new move because of safety reasons, which totally makes sense. We were packed up in no time. I moved from a studio to a studio so it was a fairly quick move. throughout the move, the crew kept asking me about which items to be moved and which were to be taken to storage. My move was divided into 2 parts. I moved from Bushwick to Parkslope and then some of my stuff went to storage at Varick Street.

I appreciate their fees were upfront, no surprises (like other movers). They had several people on their team, so the furniture was moved very quickly from Hoboken to storage units.

Kadeem and his helper are everything one could want in workers. It was in the 90's when they helped me move and they never complained once. I had a four flight walk up and they still got everything out of my apartment in under an hour including 20ish boxes, a couch and a really really long heavy dresser. I had to find someone last second and they came to my rescue. They even followed my truck and helped me move from my truck into my storage space, which we did not even agree on in the original estimate. They were both diligent with my belongings, and very professional even though the people driving the van were scumbags. The truck drivers were late by an hour and were trying to do things to slow down the process because they would get paid a different rate after two hours of usage. At one point when the truck arrived Kadeem grabbed a couple dollies off the truck and started using them so he would not have to walk down the block to get his and the truck driver lost it. Kadeem kept his cool and was really great about the whole thing. At the second stop he even payed the drivers $20 out of his own pocket just to get them to shut up. He's classy, hard working and extremely fair on price. Most estimates I got started in the $520 range and he was able to do the job for $280. He prides himself on his work ethic, and it shows. Will totally use these guys again when I have to move.

Extremely professional and thorough. Gary showed up early with his assistant (his polite nephew), and all necessary tools. He mounted a flatscreen TV to the wall, and assembled a very complicated piece of furniture (Martha Stewart Living Flat File Storage Unit). His rates are extremely reasonable, the quality of his work is excellent, and it's evident how much he truly cares about his work. I would highly recommend Gary, and will definitely be calling him for future projects!

Jeff and his partner did a great job moving my storage unit to my new home. The were both pleasant to deal with, stayed in touch before the move and arrived on-time. They got started on the work right away and we got it loaded in short order. Everything was put in his truck which has a lift-gate for the heavy stuff. After we got to my house they were very careful to ensure they did not damage the furniture or my walls going up the stair well - good job guys! Thanks, Eric

Ron worked with me on two different heavy furniture/appliance moves. Both times he was professional, on time, and VERY efficient. He is super strong! The man knows how to move! The bonus is that he is an all round great guy. I also had the pleasure to work with Ron and his team of Rock & Elvis for a complete move from a 750 sq. ft. apartment to a 350 sq. ft. micro apartment. This included 1 move to the new place & 1 move to a storage facility. It was a super hot day--85* to 90*. These guys busted their butts. They wasted no time getting right to work and continued to work hard straight through the entire 6 hours of the move. Very efficient. They know how to work as a team and how to load a truck to maximize the space. A move can be very stressful, but Ron is a calming influence. His team is the same. We actually had some good laughs during the move. He truly is a moving professional. You can not go wrong hiring him. Thanks Ron for the amazing job. You made everything work so snoothly!

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!!!

Great to work with. They did a great job packing the truck. They estimated one load and that is what it was. If they had not packed the truck so well, i would have had to pay for a second load. Price was good and the owner is very responsive. A 10 x 15 storage unit took them two hours.

3 Brothers were the most responsive of all the companies I contacted. Moving is stressful enough & they made it so easy to get through. I had to move in to storage for awhile and they were so helpful in planning & making suggestions for things I had not thought about. When my apartment is ready 3 Brothers will be my first call to move me in to my home!! Professional & just the nicest guys!

I have moved 2 times in the past 3 years, and for each of these moves my choice of company was redhat moving. Sergiu, Ivan, and Sasha are all absolute professionals. Sergiu called and explained each step of the way so I would know how things were going. They are all personable and careful and inspire absolute trust. I cannot thank them enough for making moving day so easy for me. If you are moving, these are the only people to call.

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.
