I've hired a number of movers before and let me be very clear - you will not find a better company that this. They are friendly, professional, extremely considerate with your needs, and handle themselves with the professionalism you'd expect. The attention to detail displayed during the move was impressive. Absolutely would recommend to anyone moving big or small.

Got the response to my request and read the reviews on Mount Up as well as a few other responses, doing my research. Their reviews outshined the others and we decided to call them based on this, which was a great decision. We had attempted a few other moving companies before using Thumbtack and none could get us in within our schedule. Mount Up was able to get us in on the exact day we needed. The day of, we received a call that they would be to us in about 30 minutes. Around that time, Curtis and Tommy show up with their own, large moving truck. Along with dollys, furniture pads and protective plastic wrap. Even the large, national company we used for a previous move didn't use protective wrapping. We explained to them that we needed them for all of the large, heavy furniture we couldn't do ourselves and they got to it. Less than 3 hours and they had around 10 large, heavy furniture pieces to our new place and where we wanted. This included going down two flights of stairs with a lot of the stuff. Curtis and Tommy were fantastic at their job and we couldn't recommend them and Mount Up enough. They took incredible care with our furniture and made sure nothing got damaged. Moving is a nightmare and I don't plan on doing it again for a very, very long time. But if I have to, hopefully, I can hire Mount Up again.

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!

Dwayne did an EXCELLENT job on the floors - EXACTLY what I was looking for! He has a lot of pride in the work he does. We were getting ready to sell a house - the tenant ruined the carpeting & we pulled it up. We decided to have the hardwood floors refinished instead of replacing the carpeting. The livingroom was in pretty good shape. One bedroom had a residue from old carpet padding on it. The other bedroom was so-called refinished by the tenant (the tenant did a horrible job - all uneven and blotchy looking). Dwayne did a wonderful job on the livingroom. He got the carpet pad residue off & the bedroom floor is beautiful. The other bedroom, he had to fix what the tenant screwed up. He worked very hard to make it look good. There was a tough spot & I told him it looked OK, and to leave it as is - he said "I'm going to try something else because it would bother me, it's my job & I take pride in what I do" - more people should have his work ethics. The 2nd bedroom came out beautiful as well. We had 2 other estimates to have the floors done at OUTRAGEOUS quotes. Dwayne did exactly what we wanted/needed done - the other 2 companies kept trying to up-sale us with services I didn't think we needed. Both of the other companies told us we needed to sand down to bare wood, re-stain and they poly it! Dwayne said we didn't need to do that & he was right! Two realtors commented on how nice the floors were - I passed his business card on to them! I would hire Dwayne again in a heart beat...he's honest, reliable and did a bang up job on our floors! Wish I had a photo on my computer to share - I was very happy with the results! THANKS DWAYNE!

Don and his crew did an unbelievable job moving one of our daycare facilities to another location. He arrive promptly to give a quote on the same day that I called and he also was hired on the spot not because of the price but because his professionalism and experience. They arrived 5 minutes ahead of scheduled time and finished 1 and1/2 hrs sooner than projected. You don't see that from hourly moving companies.!! It's usually 2 hrs longer. Best brothers handled our equipment as if it was their own. I know everyone hates moving but with best brothers moving it was a blessing It made our moving transition so smooth and simple... Thanks Don and crew you'll be the only one we call when we have moving needs .

This company has the absolute best customer service I have seen from any company. We had a very large move and when questions arouse during the move the owners were right there to address questions. There were problems trying to move our treadmill iut of the basement and they went above and beyond to get it taken care of. My only suggestion would have been to have a 4th person as we had so much to move. I would use this company again and recommend to anyone. Thank you for your professionalism and phenomenal customer service.

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!

The price was unbelievable. Her quote was only $135. I asked for some additional help with another small project. She said that the entire project with the add-on would then be $160. I paid her guys $200 as I just could not believe the low cost. I got a quote from someone else for $1,500 for the same work. I cannot say enough good things about Marcia and her crew. I will use them again and again. I will spread the word by mouth and Thumbtack. Couldn't be happier.

I want to thank Helping Hand Movers for all of their hard work. We had scheduled one of the big moving companies and the day of the move they did not show up because of a mix up in scheduling. I called Sultan late morning and his team was there by lunch time and worked into the night to move a whole house and a garage full of tools to a storage unit. The guys were fast and professional and took on an overwhelming task at an affordable price and did it in record time. They are true professionals and work hard to make sure your move is a success. I can't say enough to thank them for saving the day !

Alex and company are amazing! We were being strung along by our big-name moving company, and needed to be in Missouri to start a new job. After yet another delay, and yet another "guarantee", we were desperate and found AmerApex Moving. Alex contacted us on a Monday and by Thursday, they were there! They were absolute lifesavers, and did everything they could to take care of our belongings and make us feel at ease. And then they were in Missouri by Saturday to unload everything in our new house! On top of that, they are incredibly friendly and made a stressful situation feel much lighter. We can't thank Alex enough, and wish every moving company out there could be half as professional and effective as his!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
