My husband and I did our first big moving this summer. I was a bit nervous about it, as this was the first time I hired a moving company. I have contacted different moving companies and I decided to go with Simply Moving. Not only the price was very competitive but Stefan reassured me a lot about the moving, especially for my artworks which was my big concern as I am an artist. The team came on time, early in the morning, and everybody was nice, professional, polite and thoughtful. We had a huge sofa and did not know out to move it. Stefan and his team took care of it, passed it through the window without any damages. My neighbor who was watching the move told me "this is a good moving company, I can tell you". We moved in an house which is going to be renovated and I know that I would not be able to open the boxes the following days. The team was able to set up all the boxes in a way that we did not have the feeling of a mess. Also, They were good at reassembling the previously dismantled furniture. Thanks again to Stefan, Barack, Anthony, Thomas, Jesus and Peter. This was a great moving free stress experience. Please don't think too much, just go with Simply Moving.

Extremely inexpensive when compared to other moving companies. Dyno sent three very efficient guys who were prompt and had my stuff out of my apartment and into a storage facility in exactly two hours. Weather conditions were terrible and they were still very quick in getting things onto and off the truck. The main person I dealt with, Otto, was awesome. Incredibly polite and accommodating. I highly recommend this company if you need efficiency and are on a budget.

Fair price movers was one of the best moving companies that I have ever used. Their price was competitive and the quality of the movers was amazing. The movers showed up 20 minutes early, which was a plus for me because I had some serious time constraints, and They finished the entire process in about 3 hours. They were careful in handling my furniture and didn't damage anything. I would highly recommend fair price movers!

I have used few moving companies in the past years but Great Movers was far by the best. I had three wonderful men helping me with my local move.

Dariusz and company were excellent moving men. They took careful care of our old and valuable and extremely heavy furniture. We had items being moved from the basement, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floor with no complaints, unlike other moving companies. They were prompt and on time even though the forecast called for rain. Highly recommended, 5 stars. Thanks

Upon submitting my request for an installer I received a message from Mr. Glass offering his services at a very reasonable rate. I contacted Mr. Glass by phone to discuss what I would actually like installed. He was very professional, knowledgeable and attentive in assisting me. I asked about where I can get the best rates on my wall mounts, to my surprise he went as far as to offer to order the items I needed for my television wall mounts. Before my appointment I reached out yet again to Mr. Glass regarding the maintenance of the wires after the install, I didn't want dangling wires. Mr. glass again offered to order the equipment needed to be brought on the day of my appointment. Both times the cost of the items he offered to order were amazingly reasonable. Mr. glass showed up promptly for our scheduled appointment. I had just moved in the day before and was not yet organized but Mr. Glass did not let this affect his work performance he kindly maneuvered stepping over/moving items so that he could complete the job. Considering his working conditions with my move he did a FANTASTIC job!!! I am 100% satisfied with my install (s). Thanks again Mr. Glass!

Jason did an excellent job with my move. It was difficult to find a mover for just one table since all the big moving companies mostly deal with apartment/whole house moves. I was also thankful to find someone who could get this done for a fair price. The communication was swift and the service was excellent. I will definitely be contacting Jason again in the future for any small moving jobs.

The whole process was seamless and efficient from the beggining. A representative made sure to be available and answer all of my questions, responding promptly and in detail. When move day came, the movers were on time, they made sure to confirm every detail again and began work on the spot. They were fast, careful and honestly the whole experience was impressive. Within 3 hours I was at my new place ready to go. It was all extremely affordable considering what other moving companies were willing to charge. It helped to have everything packed and ready to go, but I would definitely hire them again for my next move.

Great Moving Experience: I called them after receiving a great reference from my friend who had them move within Hoboken. I had to move a bunch of furniture/couches from my parent’s garage in Wayne, NJ to my third floor walk-up in Hoboken. They neatly wrapped up all furniture in blankets and did it quick for the amount of furniture. They even moved some additional furniture we didn’t tell them about in the estimate. When we got to Hoboken, they quickly unpacked the van and got everything up to our apartment in a very short time. And the moving rate we got was excellent compared to other moving companies! It was a great moving experience. I would recommend them and will use them for any move in the future! Mike

Voyo and his team were wonderful to work with. We took a slight risk hiring a new moving company with less reviews, but my husband and I were really happy with the result. They had guaranteed quotes to us in minutes after requesting, they answered all of our questions during the process, and the movers showed up on time and were quick and efficient during the process. They took good care of our furniture and boxes, and respected the building policies. I would highly recommend the Piece of Cake Moving team!!

Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very professional, returned all my calls/texts, showed up promptly with his crew on the scheduled date of my move and did the whole move in record time. Brian also negotiated with me a fair price for the entire job. The Crew also were courteous, professional & easy to work with. Queens Junk Removal & Moving went beyond my expectations & completed everything in a very short time giving me the rest of the afternoon to clean, sort everything into its proper place & going out for errands. I would highly recommend this company for Moving as well as disposal of unwanted items. They were great! Thanks so much, Carole R. Brooklyn, NY

I am not one to usually write reviews, but "Great Service Moving & Delivery LLC" definitely deserve one. They were phenomenal - everything from professionalism to timely delivery to even price. In regards to my experience in the past, I would always have to wait a few hours for delivery, but this moving company exceeded my expectations. The two delivery men even had to wait 10 minutes for me to arrive to my new place - and they didn't mutter or complain but instead welcomed me with a great attitude! I will be recommending them to my friends who will be moving in the future as well and anyone who understands the stress of moving.

Shout out to Johnny for going above and beyond 2 Assemble the beds. I would definitely recommend them and look forward to using them in the future.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
