I have never hired movers before and had read reviews online suggesting caution when hiring movers. So, if you’re like me... you NEED to hire Roy! Roy and I set up my move from Rochester to Philadelphia via thumbtack/ text. He was very responsive and super easy to work with. His pricing is extremely competitive. The service and work quality he provided for his pricing was definitely a steal. Roy and his son took great care of my belongings and also carefully put back together furniture that had to be taken apart. They listened and accommodated me to the tee. But above all, they were extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable working with them. I felt like they were friends helping me move despite just meeting them. Hands down, a fantastic experience and I definitely recommend to anyone in the Rochester area looking for moving help. No wonder why Roy has such great reviews.. he truly delivers!

I don't think I've ever seen such hard working people... They showed up and got right to work, moving at a pace that I didn't know was possible, especially considering it was close to 90 degrees out and very humid. This was my first time hiring movers, so I was a little cautious at first, especially when I saw how young they were, but damn, did they prove themselves. They knew exactly what to do - wrapped the furniture that needed it, manuvered large pieces of furniture and didn't damage anything. I didn't have to do a thing, which was a little weird for me since I'm used to moving everything myself, but it was as stress free as a move could possibly go. The best money I've ever spent, and it was worth every penny. Without a doubt, I'd recommend Joe's Moving Company.

I have moved a lot in the past 5 years and I had always rented a u-haul and solicited my friends and family members into helping me lug my stuff from one apartment to the next. I would definitely recommend hiring movers - it makes moving so much easier. These guys were great. They were prompt and efficient along with being friendly. They offered to stage my furniture the way I wanted it set up and it made the moving experience far less of a hassle overall.

The movers were great! They were professional and experienced workers who did the job right. I'd use them again and recommend them to a friend. The owner of the company is on scene with his movers, making sure things are done correctly.

Movers were thoughtful and careful in how they packed the truck. They delivered to two locations and came back when items were missed the first time around. The only complaint is that it took them longer than I would have expected, but appreciate the time they took to load the truck in a safe and thoughtful manner.

    I've always had trouble finding a reliable, organized and respectable moving team but since the day BEFORE my move I was thoroughly impressed! The movers came over the day prior and helped me pack the rest of our items, along with breaking down my families beds and other tedious funiture. The day of, the team packed up and unloaded on what felt like record time. This was by far the most relaxed and structured move the family has ever endured. Thank you so much Finger Lakes movers! Will be highly reccomended by my family, and called back if ever needed.

    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.

    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 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.
