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.

They were great! Arrived on time, loaded everything quickly and efficiently and unloaded the same way at my new apartment. They were done in less time than predicted. My landlord was also very impressed with them and she had seen a lot of moving companies. Will definitely recommend them to others.

10/10 would recommend Seka Moving to help with a move! From the very beginning Sam was very quick to answer my calls and questions and to get my move date reserved for me, as well as checking in the closer we got to the move to make sure everything was still going okay. On the day of the move the 3 gentlemen Alex, Dima and Vitaly moved our stuff were super polite and efficient. They wrapped every thing and laid down pads so that our floors didn't get damaged. I definitely would recommend using this these movers!

Great Movers gave me the best price i could find in the area and i had 5 quotes from different moving companies. This one was the most clear and appropriate quote. I had much stuff to move but it was really cheaper than other companies. Danny and his team performed their job very well. They wrapped and packed everything superbly. All wrapping and packing came with the service. I absolutely recommend Great Movers.

I will start off by saying "These guys were AWESOME"! My move was a LAST MINUTE EMERGENCY SITUATION. David (owner) was extremely prompt with his response and communications throughout the entire move. MY MOVE: -"Start" time was 1pm. The crew and truck were in my driveway at 1pm on the dot. -In the middle of the job (around 4pm), I decided to have the crew help me with additional items I did that was not part of the original agreement. The crew dug in and stayed with me until 2am NO questions asked and NO fuss. David was also EXTREMELY FAIR with the additional hours!! -There were NO hidden cost (as I have had and seems to be typical with other moving companies). THE CREW (I SUGGEST REQUESTING THIS PARTICULAR CREW AS THEY WERE PHENOMENAL): -Jose "Foreman" Knowledge / Friendly / Hard working GOOD MAN! -Luis "Mover" -Jose "Mover" These guys are young and STRONG. They also made the move a lot of fun. *Side Note: If you need to move vehicles, Joee has some skills!! -Aron "Driver/Mover" A GREATguy who knows how to pack a truck! These guys worked from the minute they got out of the truck until the last item was unloaded! They never slacked and even though I am sure they were tired going into the 13th hour. However, they never let it show physically and still had that upbeat positive energy. I have already booked, confirmed and requested this crew for my next move which is next month. To whomever may be reading this review. Please note: I have moved several times over the past 10 years and have plenty of experience with moving companies. That being said, This is a review that is coming from a veteran NOT a rookie! Moving can be VERY Stressful and I have seen other moving companies take advantage in my situation. *NOT David, He is as Honest and Fair as they come. To sum it up: "David is someone who does exactly what he says he is going to do. As you know, that is such a rare thing to find today" I can not thank him and his guys enough! You guys are the BEST! See you in a few week. GG

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

I had two pieces of furniture assembled yesterday and they showed up on time, did an awesome job and went over and above to assist me with moving my things, as at 8 and a half months pregnant I can't do any heavy lifting. Amazing! And I probably will use them again.

I will admit I was skeptical about using this site for a moving company, but after reading all of the great reviews I thought I would give it a try. I am so glad that I picked this company as they were early, professional and did the job within a great amount of time. I had 3 workers and the size of the studio (amount of stuff) and it took 4 hours to move from an elevator building to a 2nd floor walk up. I was nervous about my TV as it is big and brand new, but they took it off the wall and transported it with no issues. I would definitely recommend this company for any type of moves and would use them again in the future!

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.

The three guys were amazing very!!! I could't ask for anything more ! Nick the head of the team was very polite, willing, fast and to the point. When unpacking I found nothing broken, what a relief .. I would rehire if I ever need them on the spot. The owner Mr Mitko great man whatever he promised he delivered and more he even came to the new apartment to see how was everything.The communication was also a plus all the way and the price much lower than other moving companies. Thank you so much all of you, I appreciated everything you have done...

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.

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!!

Was a bit skeptical as most moving companies always say great things, then the experience quickly turns south. In this case, the entire experience was excellent. My agent was Sandra, and she was attentive, knowledgeable and followed-up as promised.

I was extremely impressed with the professionalism of Three Brothers Moving Company. They responded to every phone call question and provided all information up front. They came prepared and on time. There was a group of five men who worked quickly and efficiently together to both disassemble move and then Assemble all my furniture. 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.

Mack from Always Moving and his crew worked effortlessly and tirelessly for hours all while maintaining professionalism and courtesy. After calling several movers and getting estimates, Mack stood out from the rest not only because of value, but also because of responsiveness and politeness which is something you usually don't get from moving companies. Because of this I felt extremely comfortable and confident that my move would go smoothly and my furniture and valuables would arrive at my new home safely. Everything went better than expected and I am so happy I chose Mack!

Will was quick to respond. I reached out to him the night before my move and he was able to help me out. He was professional and he worked quickly. Even though he had a long day of work (it was a very busy time of month where everyone was moving) he was still positive and friendly. I would definitely use him again!

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!

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.
