The company as a whole was outstanding. When I set my appointment with the receptionist, they quoted me a price that rivaled all the quotes that I received prior. They were extremely professional on the phone, in person and even after the fact. I was extremely impressed with the movers themselves. Vlad and Mike were extremely professional and respectful. They were timely and punctual with our items. I would highly recommend using this company for your next moving needs. I will be reaching out to them any time I need to move in the future.

Just moved from Brooklyn with Seka Moving and ive got to say this made everything so much easier for me after running around trying to figure out what I was gonna do these guys took so much stress off of my back. Not only did they make sure my stuff was secure but they made it fast. Alexey, Sasha and Azamat were very courteous and professional about the move. They seem to have a lot of experience moving and got everything done in a timely manner. Communication was easy and now i am the proud owner of a 1 bedroom house! Would highly recommend Seka movers and now I know where to find professionals to help me move.

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.

Cant really find anything to complain about Great Movers. Dannys crew was professional. They knew how to get the job done in less than 2 hours. I moved my studio with in Queens and it was one of the fastest move I have encountered in my life. Danny was sure to wrap every furniture item and everything was moved safely. I recommend great movers for your next move!

I have a fashion company and required help with a few important large shipments that needed to be packed and moved. Dariusz and his team showed up well before time with all the necessary tools and equipment and finished everything much earlier than expected. Having used several other professionals before, I can confidently say my experience with Household Service Co was spectacular! Everything was seamless and my bulk shipments were packed and moved perfectly. To top it all, Dariusz is a wonderful person and a delight to deal with. The team at Household Service Co are by far one of the most professional movers and packers I have hired. A brilliant experience overall. I highly recommend their services and I am sure to hire them again!

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.

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.

Aleh and his partner was great! We had a difficult move with multiple stops and a big refrigerator and stove. He was able to move all of the appliances skillfully and not damage any walls. He did in 6 hours what other movers would do in 8. Definitely recommend him.

My experience with KP Quality Movers was EXCELLENT. This was the ONLY moving company that agreed to give me a FLAT RATE. Everyone else wanted me to count every single item and box and we are talking an out of state, entire house move. Kris & Paul were friendly and professional. Their movers were also friendly and professional and they REALLY were doing their utmost best to provide excellent service. Kris was exceptional with detailed advice on how best to pack fragile items and he even gave us several new boxes including the pricey wardrobe boxes. For Price and Quality you will not find a better mover. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "KP QUALITY MOVERS" !!

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.

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.
