"My company, Let's Get Movin has always been a dream of mine that I had hoped to one day be able to pursue, where I would finally be able to be my own boss and be the one responsible for my own success or failure in the very competitive moving industry. Prior to starting Let's Get Movin, I had worked for numerous moving companies over the years in both New Jersey and California. The one thing that each and everyone of those companies had in common, was the fact that they clearly did not value the relationships with the customers as much as I knew they should have. These other moving companies evidently took their well-paying customers for granted which just did not sit well with me and I always vouched to never let that happen if I was the person in charge and was somehow able to fulfill my dream of starting my own business. After I finally left the last moving company that I was last working for, I decided that it was time to get Let's Get Movin up and running. I felt confident that I was going to be able to start a successful business because of all the hands-on experience I had over the years working for moving companies and the knowledge of how a reputable moving company should be operated. I decided that it was finally time to test the highly competitive market of movers, with my company, Let's Get Movin, and I started picking up moving jobs based solely off word of mouth and with help from some of my previous customers that I had stayed in contact with throughout the years. When I mentioned to my previous customers that, Let's Get Movin was looking for work, they did not even hesitate before starting to send me referrals for new customers, which I am still unbelievably grateful for, to this day. For the past year, Let's Get Movin has had a steady influx of business without using paid advertising, a social media presence, or being linked to anywhere online for that matter. The amount of work that we had coming in at the time was impossible for just myself to handle, so I invited 4 more employees to join the Let's Gets Movin team. I made sure before I hired each new employee, that they completely understood just how important our customers truly are, because literally without them, there wouldn't even be a company anymore. I am very proud to say that all of my employees share the same mindset and traits as myself, which includes being hard-working, loyal, trustworthy, dependable, passionate of the job, and motivated everyday to exceed our customers' expectations. I consider my employees part of my family and we have such a strong bond together that I genuinely believe this is why, Let's Get Movin, has been so successful already, in such a short period of time. Recently, somebody had mentioned this website to me called, Thumbtack and told me that there were a lot of customers looking everyday, for moving companies to give their business too and he thought that it would be a great opportunity to get my newly created company online so that there would be a higher chance of booking more jobs. It actually really surprised and amazed me when I saw the high amount of moving companies from all over, that were conducting business on the website, but there is still no doubt in my mind that Let's Gets Movin will not be left behind, but instead it will become one of the most popular moving companies that will be doing business on Thumbtack. Let's Get Movin, will eventually get the notoriety and recognition that I believe it absolutely deserves, because of the way that everyone at this company carries themselves and conducts their business in a professional manner. I look forward to all the current and future opportunities that Thumbtack will be providing Let's Get Movin with and I sincerely can not wait for my future customers that have not met me or heard of our company yet, to experience a hassle-free moving experience and the best customer service around when you pick the best in town, Let's Get Movin....."

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 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 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.

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 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.
