I can not say enough good things about my experience with Andrews Moving company! I planned a last minute move and was just grateful to find movers for the day I needed, but after I looked up reviews for other moving companies, and saw all the horror stories, I realize how lucky I was to have had such a great company help me with my move! The company answered all my questions prior to my move and called the night before and gave me a one hour window they would arrive by, and true to their word, they were there. They packed the truck efficiently and carefully. Once at my new home, they unpacked everything quickly, and made sure I was happy with everything before they left. The moving company office also called me during the move to make sure everything was going smoothly. The movers themselves were friendly and very polite. I recommended this company to friends and family, and would use this company again in a heartbeat. As stressful as a move can be, the moving company made it easy and I am so thankful!

When I was looking to move, I called several moving companies to get quotes and all the price that I was getting where very high. I was going to move my self then I came across veterans Moving Service. Dave came out and gave me an estimate and I like the price that he quoted me. I hired Dave and Veterans Moving Service. Came to moving day Veterans moving service showed up when he said he would, Dave was kind and courteous, he also took well care of my furniture and household belongings put them in the rooms that they were supposed to be in even help set up the beds. If and when I move again I would use veterans Moving Service again. I give this company two thumbs up. Thank you Dave and Veterans moving services !!!

I was referred to Gamidov Movers by a friend that had a great experience with their service. At first I was a little scpetical because of the bad review they recently received. But I have to tell you, it was the best experience I have ever had with a moving company.

I accessed Thumbtack last week in search of a contractor that could replace the existing tile around my fireplace. My wife and I purchased some marble tiles a few weeks back to replace the existing tile with. We were struggling to find a contractor in our area that could complete the work with any level of confidence. The first few contractors we contacted were concerned about breaking the marble pieces while trying to cut them to fit the space. Thumbtack seemed like our last hope. After filling out the short questionnaire about the type of work that I was requesting, Rodney replied almost instantly. Not only did he reply, but he sent a very personalized response to me, addressing specific concerns about the job and even posing a few questions for me. Of course I replied right away and we were soon on the phone making plans for an in-home visit for an accurate quote. Rodney was very accommodating to my schedule. He offered to visit with me and my wife in the evening to give us his quote for the work. He was very friendly, very knowledgeable, and very polite. Rodney quoted us at a very competitive price - below most other quotes we had received. With a combination of his persone and his competitive price, we knew instantly that we wanted Rodney to complete this work for us. Rodney immediately made room for us in his busy schedule in order to complete the work "as soon as possible" as my original request stated. He quoted us on a Thursday night and started the work the next morning. I'm not sure that this is something that Rodney will always be able to do for his customers, but it was surely appreciated by my wife and I in this case. Rodney did a complete tear out and reinstallation project for my wife and over the course of three days. He completed the tear out and preparation on Friday, cut and placed all of the marble on the fireplace on Saturday, and finished grout and cleanup on Sunday. Rodney worked late into the day on Saturday, ensuring customer satisfaction and job completion by Sunday as originally planned. All the while, Rodney was very polite, very respectful of our time and space, and very tidy and thorough at the completion of the project. He made sure that there were no loose ends before leaving and ensured that my wife and I were happy with his work. He even offered to go above and beyond and complete further small services for us at no cost if we felt they were necessary to make the project more perfect than it already was. I would recommend Rodney to anyone in the Indy area that is looking for an efficient, knowledgeable, polite contractor that will surely get your job done the way YOU want it done. Rodney is not looking to rush through a job - he is working for his customers trust and a lasting relationship. He has certainly earned that with my wife and i. We've got several project ideas that we will be contacting Rodney about in the coming years. Thanks Rodney!

We had waited until the last minute to look for a mover because we just thought we would take care of it ourselves. We left many messages for other movers but never heard back. Amerapex movers was the only service that called us back and it was a great experience. We were not totally packed and ready to move when Alex and his crew got to us and that was not a problem. They were so nice and polite! They handled everything and got us to our new location in great shape. I would highly recommend Amerapex Movers!!

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.
