Roy and his team showed up on time and had us completely moved out in under two hours. I don't think either of them took a break except to travel. They were very professional and moved all of our things without a single issue. Highly recommend to anyone who needs movers 10/10!

Herb did a fantastic job with my long-distance move from Henrietta, NY down to Delaware. Very responsive, extremely easy to work with, and very professional. He came out to the house and gave a quick estimate on how much the move would cost (at a very reasonable price), saving me from having to put together a full itemized list of possessions like some other moving companies were asking for. He was very flexible on timing, and was even willing to keep mowing my lawn for me, allowing me to move out of the house weeks ahead of schedule (which was a huge help and made an otherwise very stressful move much less painful). On the day of the move, Herb showed up on time first thing in the morning and had everything loaded up within hours, allowing me to get out of the house at a decent time and start my own drive down to DE before it got too late in the day. None of my possessions were damaged in transit or went missing and everything was delivered on time to the specified destination. Overall, I am very happy with the job Herb did, and would highly recommend him.

Larry Barnes is the best mover I have ever met in my 20 year Interior Design Career! I also recommend Larry to service all of my Real Estate clients and his service and team is excellent! Larry and his team goes above and beyond. He is an expert at wrapping and packing. He protects your stuff as if it's his own. Everything from deliveries and moving a few things around to Long Haul relocation moves is done with the utmost of respect and care.

Our 4-7 man teams outwork typical 2-3 man crews and cut the time in half. Rates are higher...time is less by half.... and the bill is always the same as if 3 men performed the move...but it took our team half the time.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
