I used simply moving for local moving. They came to the house, gave me estimation. I didn't pay anything extra, They did a good job except that the truck was too small. So it took a lot longer and we ended up using our car for lots of boxes as the things couldn't fit in the truck. I would have given 5 stars otherwise.

I had a really excellent experience with Dyno Moving. I was moving to a 5th Fl walk-up and the crew was extremely professional, fast, and careful with my things. Plus, the move was super reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend Dyno Moving and will use them again the next time I move.

Our recent move with Seka Movers from New York to Queens was exceptionally good. We’ve moved over 15 times, so we’ve had our share of good moves and bad moves, but Seka and our moving crew of Sam, Dima, and Alexey were amazing. They covered the front door and carefully wrapped each piece of furniture before loading it into the truck. They worked steadily and quickly, but carefully. When we got to our destination, they placed each piece of furniture where we asked, and at the end of the day, they suggested we go through the whole house and they offered to move anything from where we’d initially told them to a different spot.  Then, when we got ready to pay, Sam said we owed LESS than the original estimate. We’re frequently paid other movers more than the estimate, but never less. We encourage you to call Saka Movers for an estimate before you make a move. Awesome!!!

Great experience with Fair Price, will definitely use again/recommend! They were quick, efficient, and professional (it took them only 25 minutes to load the truck when moving my 1BR apt!). Overall they made moving a little less painful - very satisfied customer :)

We just used Great Movers for our local move. I mentioned them that freight elevator is available in my building but on moving day it got out of order which made the job of moving team very difficult since i have many heavy items. But they tried to accommodate me as much as they could. They were super fast even while using the stairs and in less than 2 hours my apartment was empty. They were very friendly and polite. At my new house they asked me each time before placing the items and they helped me with re-assembling of furniture also. They were so efficient and professional indeed. These guys are highly recommended.

Professional. Punctual. Powerful. Hauling and Moving Services was responsive to all of my inquiries before the move, providing accurate estimates without any excessive minimums, add-ons or hidden fees. They arrived on-time to begin the job, and worked without any breaks, to complete my local move in upper Manhattan last week. I moved into a third floor walk-up and my boxes were carried up the two flights without hesitation or complaint. It was a great job for the value! I would recommend the service and hire them for my next move!

We moved few streets away from the other location, in the same town. We wanted Ample Moving to help us with the big pieces of furniture. And they did a great job! They were punctual, arriving early in the morning at the time they said they would. They immediately started work, in 1 1/2 hour finishing packing in the old house, and took in the truck few additional things which we forgot to mention initially. They took another 1 1/2 hour to do the unpacking - everything was placed in the correct spots with no issues. The staff was very polite and professionally handled the tasks in a speedy and customer friendly manner.

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 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!

I needed help in moving a full-size refrigerator in to my third floor unit. Rich and Donald did an outstanding job. They arrived on time, they were very patient and tactfully maneuvered through the narrow doors. They were very careful and handled it as if they were moving their own refrigerator. I will definitely use them again for any help I need around the house. It’s very hard to find good people, I am glad I contacted them. I will strongly recommend them to all my friends and neighbors!

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.
