This was my daughter's first time moving apartments in NYC with a limited budget so I wanted to make sure she was in good hands. Well Stefan right from the start was very responsive to any and all questions and on move day his team was right on time and very professional. The move went very quickly, the price was fair and both my daughter and myself were very impressed and will not hesitate to call upon them for her next move or recommend them to others.

Dyno was great to work with. Coordinating this NYC to Brooklyn furniture move from the St Louis was a bit concerning never having worked with any movers in NYC but Thumbtack made it easy and Dyno made the experience great. The movers were on time and on budget even with the heavy inbound traffic. No damage to the furniture and the movers were hardworking and very professional.

Incredible moving experience. I am stunned. Last time I moved my two bedroom apartment, it took around 5 hours. today Great movers arrived at 8 am sharp the time I was communicated by the office and we were done by 10:30 am. This was super fast move of my life. If you want to move with in a budget hire Great Movers. These guys just made my day. Lead guy Danny was very humble, careful with the wrapping and moving.

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 moved last weekend and I am happy that everything went so well as you always have bad surprise with moving companies. The quote was including everything I needed In my budget and no extra at the end, the 3 guys were really nice and very careful. It went pretty fast so I had a lot of time to re-organize my new place within almost the same day. I would definitely re-contact them for my next moving.

Paul was great! He was ten minutes early, despite the fact that it was an early morning appointment. He was very careful with all of my property and treated my home as if it was his own. I had hired Paul to install an A/C Unit; however, it needed to be a custom job due to the nature of my windows. Paul adapted to the situation and was still able to deliver very high quality work while maintaining a very competitive budget. Paul also worked very quickly, while maintaining quality of work, to make sure that the work was done in a very favorable time range. I definitely plan on using Paul for all of my work going forward. Just cannot beat his work ethic and quality, which is something lost on most handymen these days!

Excellent company with people with excellent work ethic. We hired them for a long distance move. The movers were very professional and helped us reduce the stress of moving. Our new place had hardwood floors and when we told them about it, they brought rubber protectors and blankets to protect the floors. They keep everything clean and neat. They made it all easy for us. Really appreciate it.

On time, professional, polite. Excellent communication and the price I was given was fair and there were no hidden fees or charges. Brig told me that they would make this move easy for us and they did. Fredo and the moving team were efficient and organized and handled everything with care. I had guitars and amplifiers and they were safe with these guys. Highly recommended.

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!

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.
