I called to schedule a partial unload (heavy/difficult to move items) in the middle of the day on a Saturday & 2 movers showed up 3 hours later. They were quick, friendly and efficient. I would definitely choose them again!

We hired Terrell and Ryan for moving and cleaning our apartment. Not only were they punctual and professional, they were also quick and efficient. We started at about 10am and we were done with moving AND cleaning by 2pm. They worked around our schedule and came in on a Sunday to help us move. They moved some really heavy couches and dressers through some really narrow spaces, all with smiles on their faces. We highly recommend their services and will definitely look them up again for any future needs. Hire them and you will not be disappointed.

Legacy's movers were very professional, courteous, and hard-working. They listened to my requests for handling of certain items and followed through willingly. I was particularly impressed with their efforts to be careful, and they were creative in moving heavy large equipment & furniture. They helped make my moving experience much easier.

Nice guys, on time, got the work done quickly. They will be the first call I make if I have any type of heavy lifting or moving to do. In fact, I may be moving in June of next year, if I do – they will be the guys who make that happen.

Ahmaad and Ishmael (?) were such a great help today with lifting and moving some heavy new quartz countertops and shower base. They were professional, very nice, and gave us some good advice regarding our move in 2 months or so...which we will be using them for again.

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!!

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.
