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

I was stressed out and dreading moving...I have so much stuff! But Sam and his crew took a huge burden off my shoulders. They were prompt, professional and took great care with my Furniture. I hope I never have to move again, but if I do I will certainly use Seka Movers.

I hired Reginald to move an expensive, large and HEAVY dining room set that I purchased from my neighbor that is moving. He quoted me a very reasonable number which Led me to believe that he had under-estimated the job. When he showed up with one other guy, I was certain they could never pull this off. When Reginald looked at the furniture, I think he thought the same thing, but somehow, someway they pulled it off! Both of these gentlemen were professional and courteous. They treated the furniture as if it were their own, made sure everything was reassembled properly and were more concerned that it was placed properly then we were. I highly recommend Reginald and "Movers-for-a-cause" and will definitely use them again.

We had two couches moved from a 2 story walk up in Jersey city to UWS. The movers were great. Easy getting the couches down and into the city. Only issue getting one into bedroom in apt. Movers removed legs and couch went in room easily. Would recommend and use this mover again.

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.

These guys were great. No muss no fuss, did what they said they would do when they said they would do it. Sam did the scoping, Eric, Suba, and Marat were the movers. Eric made a few recommendation that made the move go smoother than anticipated. A few unavoidable things happened, but overall it was one of my happiest move( and i've moved a lot) They are worth it

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.

Tony's Moving

Most movers are late and wishy washy and don't bother to keep you in the loop, at least in my experience. Well, we were scheduled for 9am, and not only were the crew from Tony's not late, they actually showed up a full half hour early, ready and raring to go. Here's how good these guys are. My wife and I had literally been up all night trying desperately to get everything packed but were woefully behind schedule. When Philip and his crew arrived, I explained to them we were late and to please just take everything that was packed, and we would just handle the rest ourselves the next day. As it is, we had grossly underestimated how many boxes we had, and were probably already over the number that our quote had been based on. Instead of being glad they'd have less work to do, Philip actually had his guys building boxes for us and encouraging us to just fill them while they worked so we'd have less to do ourselves the next day. I was exhausted and had already given up, but these guys literally motivated me to get a second wind and I must have given them a dozen extra boxes to take. Probably more. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking, ok, well this is gonna cost me. They have a flat rate, but we had exceeded the estimate by a large margin. These guys took a 220 lb CRT television like it was no big deal. Anyway, when the time came to pay up, a full five hours later, the price was unchanged. I can't imagine how much extra materials they burned through, but they didn't charge us a penny extra. Better, they had our TV wrapped in a blanket, and since our apartment was still pretty much under construction, they didn't want to unwrap it and leave it at risk, so they just gave us the blanket to keep so the TV wouldn't get damaged. This is the kind of place Tony's is, and Philip and his crew in particular. They were the nicest guys you can come across, never had one complaint or negative word to say. Oh, and about that price. It wasn't like some compromise where we decided to pay more for better service. This was a rock bottom price, by far the lowest estimate we could find. I can tell you at least one place estimated THREE TIMES the price. Another, well-regarded moving company quoted us double and said anyone who quotes less will upcharge you at the last minute when you have no choice. Not only did these guys not do that, but they had every opportunity to and chose not to. I really can't say enough good things about these guys. If you have any doubt whatsoever, drop it. I absolutely assure you they are the real deal. By far the best movers I have ever seen in action. I will use them exclusively going forward, and will recommend them to everyone I know who needs movers. You'd honestly be a fool to go with someone else. And I'd ask for Philip, personally, if I had to do it all over again. He wasn't just patient, but went out of his way to reduce our obvious stress. This is the place you want to go with, take my word for it.

Mr Mars was very responsive and timely in providing a quote, which he stood by. The movers were friendly, courteous and helpful. I had them wrap mattresses, which they did at a reasonable extra cost. Mars seems to be a solid organization that I would recommend for smaller, short distance movers like mine.

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!

Hands down, best moving experience I’ve ever had- and I’ve moved a number of times. Tyler, the owner, is extremely responsive and conscientious. The two movers who arrived kept me in the loop as to their exact arrival time (as did Tyler, and they were even early per my request!), and were beyond polite and professional. I felt very comfortable having them move all my personal belongings and would probably only ever use them again. I strongly recommend you cancel the other movers you booked and book Beaumont instead!

I presented GABA with a last minute need to move a heavy armoire upstairs. It had been left in the lobby by another mover. He went out of his way to accommodate me. He even tried to get a helper at 9pm. He took on the job before his other already scheduled morning appointment the next morning and got the job done even though his van wasn't working. He had no excuses and got the job done. I wasn't at the location for delivery and Gaba sent me a photo of the furniture prooerly placed. So thoughtful! I appreciate how helpful and reliable he was, and his fee was reasonable, too! You saved the day, Gaba. Thank you so much! I highly recommend GABA moving. Glenda

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.
