I was moving just one of my bedrooms in my condo, which was my mother's bedroom and the movers from Incredible Hulk Movers assisted with moving her furniture to her new assisted living apartment. I originally didn't plan on using a moving company but when I decided to, I called multiple moving companies - the more well known ones - and with only 2 days notice, they were all booked up. My friend told me about Thumbtack so I thought this was my only last hope to post my job. This was my first job I posted so my first experience with this website. This moving company who I had never heard of was the best moving company I've ever worked with & I've worked with/witnessed approx. 8 moving companies. This moving company should be one of the more well-known moving companies. The best I've ever worked with/experienced. These movers were total gentlemen. My big lab got in their way at times & they weren't afraid of him & they just stopped what they were doing, even if they had heavy furniture in their hands, until my dog passed by out of their way. They were so professional & didn't complain one bit about the long walk from the U-Haul to the apartment; I know it was very long and I appreciate your hard work. You were so incredibly helpful during this difficult transition of my mom I've supported for a decade having to move move out of my condo to an assisted living facility. You made the move so smooth and I will definitely use you in the future for my moving needs and highly recommend you to anyone else!

Terrell and his team did an AMAZING job. Not a single thing was broken or scratched, which is not the case when I have used large "reputable" moving companies in the past. Not only was he reliable and timely, but he also provided competitive pricing. When I realized I was going to be done with my packing earlier than expected, he made himself available. I will definitely use his services in the future! I wish him the best on his business.

Redding and his crew are amazing! They go there early and started right away. It was a stormy and rainy day and they worked through it. The location of my move actually changed the day before and they were understanding and able to accommodate the new address. The crew was professional, efficient, and fun and took care of my property like it was there own!!! Highly recommend this company for moving, junk removal, delivery, they do it all! Thank you!

After getting a few quotes from various moving companies, we chose Grandview Moving based simply on "I felt comfortable with them after just a brief phone call with Matt". And yes, his estimated rate was less than his competitors. With that said, my decision was the right one because Matt, Ryan, and Justin are true professionals. These 3 guys exceeded my expectations. They worked non stop, very fast, very effecient, and extremely respectful. My items were treated with care and when moving the items into my new home, they were extremely cautious not to cause any damage or markings of any kind. I would give Matt, Ryan, and Justin 10 stars and will recommend them to anyone I know who's moving. Thanks again guys, you're awesome!!

Josh and Alex did an amazing job! I have never seen people move that quickly in my life. All of my things were taken such good care of. We made 2 stops for the move and the truck was packed so efficiently and methodically. I will be moving again in a few months and will definitely be using them again. The price was fair and all costs and charges were discussed upfront and there was not a single surprise cost at the end. I cannot recommend them enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Moving is stressful and never easy. I knew I was going to use a moving company just not sure who. I found them on thumbtack and thought I would give them a shot. The guys that they sent were professional and fast! My place was a big 1 bedroom apartment with 24 stairs. I asked them to move everything but the kitchen sink and they did and so quickly. They were professional and careful with my stuff. I will be using them again when I move my stuff out of storage!

Great customer service & moving crew. We checked into a few different moving companies & got estimates. Some companies just gave us a phone estimate and didn't even want to send someone to see our home. How are you going to give me a correct price if you have no idea what we have? Andrews set-up an appointment for an in-home estimate. The estimator was very informative & explained everything well. She definitely knew her stuff. Most companies lowballed and told us it would take 2-4 hours. Our estimator explained how they estimate time, our move took 7 hours to complete from start to finish with Andrews, which is exactly the timeframe the estimator told us. The crew worked so hard all day!! I was impressed. They also offer full value protection to insure your furniture, in case something is damaged, which put my mind at ease, but thankfully everything went great & nothing was broken. They wrapped & protected everything so well. The crew was extremely nice & professional. They didn't complain about heavy furniture or stairs. I couldn't have asked for a more professional company or crew. They cost a little more, than some of the smaller mom & pop moving companies, but with moving you definitely get what you pay for. We will definitely call them next time we move. Thanks for everything!!

For about seven years I dreamed of making my partially finished basement into a fun, comfortable place for our family to hang out and grandchildren to play. Problem is, it was packed with unattractive shelves, a bunch of stuff, and a huge china cabinet that got in the way. For years I would go downstairs and just sit by the hour and look around and try to figure out where I should start. I called Heather and asked her if she wanted to come over and help me. And boy did she ever! In the first two hours she helped me break the INERTIA! She immediately had a vision, started making suggestions, dove right in and helped me move and place things differently and put her foot down about me getting rid of some of the things I had been storing for years. Over the next few days I was able to work on my own with a purpose. She gave me lots of ideas for organizing things to purchase. She came back a second time and helped me again. Our basement was transformed in less than three weeks (myself imposed deadline for our whole family coming in for Christmas.) Everyone in our family is THRILLED. The space is child proofed, safe, comfortable and completely transformed. Our kids and our grandkids were able to gather together and actually relax while their kids played happily. She also had many suggestions for the utility side of our basement which were such an improvement it inspired my husband to paint it! And she didn't stop at just the basement - walking through the kitchen and past hallway closets she made tons of suggestions that I later pursued on my own. I can’t say enough about what a tremendous inspiration Heather was!

Terrell, along with Jeffrey and Henry, were kind, professional, and thoughtful. The person we moved is elderly. Their patience and understanding of the situation made this a smooth, calm process. Terrell and I were in constant contact to coordinate this move - very prompt, professional communication via Thumbtack. Thanks, gentlemen, for coming on a holiday weekend. I definitely recommend Terrell's company to all in need of moving!

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.
