I needed to move my smallish office from Soho further south, and wanted to find a reliable, honest and affordable moving co.. I've heard horror stories about NYC moving companies, so was very cautious and asked lots of questions prior to hiring someone (i suggest you do the same). In the end, after talking to and getting quotes from several companies, I decided to go with Simply Moving. They had the best rates, and Carlos patiently answered all of my questions and walked me through the process. The moving team was excellent as well. They arrived on time and ready to work. We only ran into one issue with a large piece of furniture that didn't fit in the elevator (my error, I thought it would) after a couple of tries. They ended up taking it down the stairs, and since taking anything down the stairs wasn't included in the contract, we reached an agreement, and they took care of it. At the new location, there were a couple of tight fits because the elevator was smaller, but they figured it out, and got everything upstairs with no damage, no complaints, and on schedule. Really an excellent job.

Just had an amazing move with Kobe and his team. They moved us from Brooklyn to Queens in record time. They packed everything perfectly and then placed them again in my new apartment very quickly. I am shocked how efficiently each of them was performing. They arrived earlier and they were cheaper than other moving companies. Highly recommended

Bertie and his team were wonderful to work with! Bertie was easy to get in touch with to coordinate logistics, was flexible and accommodating when I was running late and needed to push back our start time, and arrived right on time. He and his partner were extremely quick, careful with my items, and polite and easy to work with. Also affordable. And quick! I highly recommend him and his team for any moving projects! Will definitely try to work with him again on any future moves.

I have moved 2 times in the past 3 years, and for each of these moves my choice of company was redhat moving. Sergiu, Ivan, and Sasha are all absolute professionals. Sergiu called and explained each step of the way so I would know how things were going. They are all personable and careful and inspire absolute trust. I cannot thank them enough for making moving day so easy for me. If you are moving, these are the only people to call.

Tyler installed a full motion mount for my 70" television this pass Weekend. Tyler had a quick response to my inquiry (on Thumbtack) and he was extremely helpful in walking me through the process of installation since I was a first timer. Tyler and Richard arrived timely and worked quickly. They were very neat and left no clean up for me. BeauMount Services was affordable and worked expeditiously to have my TV up for my enjoyment. I highly recommend BeauMount Services because they were professional and had lots of patience with me. Tyler and Richard will definitely be installing my next TV.

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

The movers from Clutter are some of the nicest guys around (especially Justin and Jeffrey). As a ny'er I've moved a lot and have used many services for packing/ moving/ delivery - with my fair share of awful to scary experiences (hello craigslist). These guys are friendly, on time and so helpful. They are also a great rate - comparable to other professional moving services and probably less in many cases. As well as, moving they have a storage system that is ideal for the NY lifestyle with pick up and drop off delivery of your items when you need them. So no need to now rent a car to go get your stuff or find a babysitter just so you can go to your storage - it comes to your front door!

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.
