They gave me a call about an hour before they arrived which was about 10 minutes early. They worked the entire time. The estimated time needed was almost exactly how long it took the movers. So, there were no surprises when I paid the bill except they charge an extra fee if you use a credit card.

I needed help with a Mid-Month move from Dayton to Tampa in July '18. I read numerous horror stories on fly by night moving companies not showing up, holding furniture for ransom. movers showing up smelling or pot or alcohol, you name it I read about it. I also received quotes from other Movers in town that were 3 or 4 times more than the estimate I received from HELP. To further complicate the move, we were consolidating 2 houses into one. Gary the owner, came to both houses and we discussed Timelines, type of truck to be used( for a move like this Gary rented a larger truck from Penske), as well as overall costs for the move. The cost was much less than I was expecting and after reading the horror stories and bad reviews from other movers, I was expecting a surprise on quality or price at the end. Gary knows this business and knows what it takes to get the job done right. Despite issues with a Truck from Penske that put us behind by 18 hours, Gary showed up with a backup truck and got House # 1 packed on time with no issues. His team was professional, took care of delicate pieces, and made sure the load was packed securely. The next day, we tackled House # 2. All goods from House # 2 got loaded on the Penske Truck, and the two trucks were backed up end to end and all household goods were transferred from one truck to another. Gary personally supervised and managed the entire load out of the FL Bound Truck. Everything was securely packed and only one casualty was a nick in the rear corner of a large armoire which he adjusted on our invoice. Everything else arrived as packed, nothing broken, glassware, delicate items and paintings undamaged. We set delivery for Friday morning at 6:00 AM. His Team was waiting in my driveway and appreciated coffee and donuts. Unloading took about 4 hours, beds were set up, washer and dryer hooked up, and way too many boxes filled up the garage. My fault for bringing too much stuff. Team was totally professional and courteous at all times despite completing an 18 hour drive and sleeping for a few hours in their truck overnight. The surprise came at the end. The Final Invoice was exactly what I was quoted. Gary and his team came through on every portion of this move, every promise made was delivered on, and I could not ask for better service on this move. Gary I can only give 5 Stars you deserve 10 Stars. For those contemplating a Long Distance Move, pick a time during the middle of the month. A mover's busiest time is at the beginning or end of the month. Avoid Broker's who hand your belongings off to someone else who is the least cost mover, and any promises made don't count for anything. My household goods stayed on Gary's Truck and his Team handled things from end to end. And if things weren't right they knew they would answer to Gary. I read all of Gary's Reviews from beginning to end, even the few bad ones and I was impressed. Gary takes ownership and the Buck Stops with him!!! To Gary and Team I can't thank your enough for your help and Support and Excellent Service. Jim Gruber - Riverview, FL

Vigma provided me with two movers who were on time, professional, and kind. They showed up on time and gave me a courtesy call when they were on their way. They moved my things out of two different locations and did everything I asked, all during 90 degree weather! I would recommend them to everyone. They did a great job

Ran into a minor bump that had the movers running late due to traffic, but after that all went really well. The movers were polite and extremely fast. They had my move done in two hours flat. As far as movers go, they were hands down a great experience and handled all valuables with care. They were worth the price!

My overall experience with this company was excellent. I feel the before and after travel time expense was unnecessary. The young men that moved my belongings were very friendly, energetic, customer service oriented and professional. This isn't the first time I've used other movers in the past and this company was more expensive due to the travel costs. I would recommend Move It Now. They were great!!!!!

George and Patrick provided great service in a short time window I had for move from Columbus, OH to Chicago, IL. They were on time for both aspects of move (had tight window for delivery in Chicago). They were very diligent in packing and unpacking and would recommend them for any local or long distance move.

Lionel and Corbin arrived at my home with a can do attitude. They were professional and friendly. I needed a 300lb. treadmill moved down to my basement. They made a difficult job look easy. I have dealt with movers many times as a military spouse and I highly recommend them. Thank you so much All The Kings Men Moving Experts!

    This was my first moving experience and I absolutely loved it. The price was very reasonable and cheap considering the distance they had to travel. The movers from Public Moving were also very kind and helpful. They were punctual, showing up early to load and delivering everything on time. My items were still in good condition when they were delivered with no scratches or broken items. I would definitely recommend them to everyone and will definitely use again!

    I’m really impressed with these guys. They did a wonderful job on my move. The foreman showed up on time with three other very capable guys. The prices were fair and the workers did their jobs with no dilly-dallying. I would recommend trying to pack as much as you can ahead, but if you have no time it’s nothing to worry about since you can bet that the team will show up with blankets and dollies galore. They initially told me 7-17 days and I told them i wanted it as close to 7 as possible... they took 11... I'm just happy everything is all in one piece and there aren't any damages. I really appreciated the price not going up as well, that was important to me as I assured me "no surprises." I can honestly recommend this company to anyone who’s moving long distance.

      This long distance mover gave us the best flat rate price and true to her quote there were no hidden charges. Great job wrapping and protecting our furniture Great job packing. Great job loading the truck and it is backed floor to ceiling. We do not know how she got it all to fit. The other movers we used charged us $800 more for another small truck load. Great job storing our stuff. Great super fast job unloading the truck. GREAT JOB ALL THE WAY AROUND! Everything was delivered damage-free. If you are looking for a mover with quality services, honesty and trust, great price, guarantee delivery when you need it, hassle free with flat rate, safe storage, and a lot more, then stop looking. I Hate Moving is the mover you should use. We were so tired and needed to clean so we can get our security deposit back. I didn't even know movers clean, but when talking to her references, several talked about the move-out cleaning services. So we ordered that too. After we moved out, we simply gave her the key to the empty house. She did her cleaning magic and sent us pictures of every single room and item on the move-out check list. She left the key inside on the counter just as we asked her too and locked the door. The leasing office did a walk thru in 5 minutes and complimented us on how thorough the cleaning was. When we told them that the mover did it, they asked for their information and said that they may be interested in using this mover for regularly cleaning vacant townhouses. I sure hope they do call her and help this mover's business grow big. I give this mover move than 5 stars and all my family and friends will be using this honest dedicated mover.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
