This past week I was in search of a mover for a couch. (It can be difficult to find someone willing to only move one piece of furniture) Moving & Moore quickly responded. We messaged back & forth. Ultimately we couldn't work out a time that worked for the mover, the seller and us. But, I even heard back from Moving & Moore on Sat. morning checking to see if the move had happened. I will not hestitate to contact them again when I need a mover.

Hired them just a few hours prior to when I needed my truck loaded after other movers fell through. Price was excellent, they responded almost immediately, arrived precisely on time, and had the truck loaded within 45 minutes (a one bedroom apartment's worth of stuff).

Johnathan was very professional . He was promt and reasonable in his estimate. He did some deck work for me and some painting in Lockport . Although I'm in Tennessee it was a pleasure to have JP House Preservations handle my issues . He stayed in contact showed me pictures of completed work and was available to any questions or concerns. He went above and beyond . Absolutely would recommend him .

My initial contact telephone call was answered by the owner. He gave a detailed plan confirming his company’s availability and scheduled our moving date. On the day of our move we were contacted early in the morning by Travis confirming the plan: number of men and truck size needed. On their arrival the staff reviewed details of our contract. The three men (“the Twins and Gerry) were very respectful and careful of our property. They were friendly and made the experience a pleasant one. My Husband and I both agree if needed we would use Mighty Samson Movers again.

I was skeptical because I live in Rochester and the truck was coming from Niagra Falls. The two movers, Mike and Mark, actually arrived early. The guys were professional, knowledgeable about moving, and handled my belongings as if they were their own. I was very pleased with their work. Nathan handled the details. He was accessible throughout the process when questions came up, as well as handling the payment process.

    Excellent movers. Friendly, professional, and knew what they were doing. We had to move a lot of heavy furniture to our new house. The movers showed up on time with plenty of cables and blankets to make sure none of our furniture was damaged. Brian called when he and Scott were on their way to give us time to prepare. The move went very smoothly, and Brian and Scott were very knowledgeable about maneuvering big pieces through tight spaces, and they made disassembling and reassembling look easy. Despite a few extra little changes to our plan, Brian honored the quote he gave us. Will keep the phone number for H&R on hand for any future deliveries or moving we have to do. Great job.

    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 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 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.
