Tom and his crew we're incredibly decent people. He was very responsive to any questions we had and provided excellent service helping us move. It wasn't an easy move as we were on the 3rd floor and also required a 2nd trip to our storage unit. They took the many, many trips up and down the stairs with no qualms whatsoever. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs quality movers. Thank you so much for all your help!

After movers cancelled, these guys stepped in last inure to get us moved out. They were early to the job and finished in the time they stated. They were great with our stuff and the difficulty of the new space. Thanks for helping with what seemed like a hopeless situation.

I had other movers back out on me last minute. I called Dave and he was there the exact minute he promised. Everything was moved without a scratch and with care. I got his number and I’ll be letting everyone know. This guy is strong! Haha thanks again man!

Dave and his crew arrived on time to move my 3 bedroom duplex to a 3 bedroom home 25 miles away. Some of my belongings and furniture were staying behind to be donated, so I quickly showed them which items were being moved and which were not, then I got out of the way and waited outside in my car. I had most of the furniture taken apart beforehand and most of my boxed items centrally located. The guys took care of everything, there was no confusion at all, and they moved quickly. If they felt something should be shrink wrapped or bubble wrapped and I hadn't done it, they quickly wrapped it up before putting it in the truck. Upon delivering our furniture and belongings to our new home, they brought everything in expeditiously and then assembled our dismantled furniture without being asked. When my extra couch unexpectedly did not fit in the doorway, they stored put down cardboard and stored it as carefully in my garage as they could. The entire move took about 3.5 hours, including multiple trips up and down stairs for the guys. Would certainly recommend them.

I had to find a moving company (last minute) and quoted a few places and Mack's Moving Company replied quickly and came in at a fair and really good price. And after reading great reviews, I went with them and I'm very happy I did. Dwight and Larissa (in the office) were quick to reply and helped get me set up within a week of my move. Matt and Ish were the movers the day of and worked HARD and fast. They were courteous and yet had no time for chit chat because they were working! I'm very happy with them and would use them again and highly recommend them.

We had Armory drive several large pieces of furniture from Saratoga Springs, NY to Virginia, at a price that was far, far below what other movers were quoting me! I sent pictures and dimensions of the furniture. We coordinated through Thumbtack to set up all the details. They showed up on time with moving supplies and 2 people. They were efficient and careful. They wrapped and strapped everything down in the U-Haul trailer and drove straight to VA that very day. The unloading on the other end was equally efficient and careful. I received a paid receipt. They only accept cash, which was difficult for the cost of a long-distance move, but other than that, I was very pleased. I would use them again, and I recommend them to others.

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.
