I highly recommend Supportive Services Moving for any moving job. Todd did a great job at communicating and working to get a team to my place as soon as possible and around my schedule. The team faced a fairly difficult move (the destination had 4 flights of stairs) but handled it professionally and were a joy to work with. The only complaint I can make is the estimated 2 hour move became 4.25 hours long despite me helping load and unload. To be fair, this was partly my fault for not being fully prepared to load up, but it was partly due to inefficient loading and unloading effort on their part (carrying 1 small piece per trip at times). Despite this, I am happy with the service and for the price I don't think they can be beat!

Great that I was able to quickly hire two movers in a short amount of time. They were quick and didn't stand around to contemplate how they were going to pack everything. They hustled and got it done quickly. The only improvement I would suggest is to do a final walk through with the mover. I was leaving a few things behind and a couple very heavy items were left behind. I will have to hire another labor to move them out of th@fszizzle Your body cannot withstand deep water aerobics?

QAR Moving responded quickly and efficiently to my moving needs. Before contacting them I was distressed! Once I contacted them, I felt confident the job would go smoothly. They arrived on time and communicated pleasantly and professionally. Because of their experience, they took a potentially huge challenge and completed the tasks quickly, while taking very good care of my furniture to assure there would be no damage.They asked good questions to be sure the move was going well and furniture was placed where I wanted it. A potentially stressful experience turned out to be a quick, positive experience!

Wow! The best movers I have ever hired! I am in the Real state business, I have hired a dozen or more of labor movers in the last year. PNW MOVING is the best! I highly recommend them. They were on time, fast, safe, and very professional! Josh & Roy were so kind. And so understanding, they picked up my piano like it wieghed nothing. They packed my whole house under 5 hours. I told them I had a 8 hour budget, and they surpised me so much! They saved me money and time, I even took the guise out tk eat after wards! They loaded the truck so well and professional, everything was wrapped, tied down, safety moved. I actually hired then again a few days later for a move for my client, this time I hired 6 PNW Moving guiee and wow. They are so amazing. A++++++++ all the way.

Emmanuel responded to request to chat about the project right away. I needed someone quickly, and he was easy to schedule with. He started from the beginning offering an overview of his experience, tasks he is qualified to complete, and specialized areas that he excels with. He arrived right on time and assembled my 5 piece patio set and was able to move and assemble a fire pit. Before beginning the project, he reviewed my expectations with me, and offered a few creative suggestions to enhance the project. He remained focused throughout the project, appeared to be well organized, and worked uninterrupted until it was completed. His work was completed ahead of the time he had time to help me rearrange furniture. I am looking to start my next project with Emmanuel. I am very pleased with the result!

Pine state junk removal are AWESOME. Jason (the owner) was upfront and super helpful giving me an excellent quote and setting up an appointment within the next 24 hours. The two gentlemen (Shane and Victor) who came to load and haul the trash were super friendly and insanely quick at what they do. Overall the service they provided was nothing short of spectacular, I would not hesitate to refer them to friends and family, also personally I will be calling them for all of my hauling needs in the future.

I have moved households 7 times in the last 10 years (military etc), so when this one came up I was dead-set on not doing the hard labor. Costro Moovers showed up, and the team got all my large items loaded and unloaded exactly how I imagined a smooth move would go! Great rates, even worked with us to save some money by recommending less trucks and movers based on our situation. Another company would definitely NOT do that! A++, will call them again in a few years when I have to move again!!!! Castro Movers ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

These guys are great! I called and got an appointment in less than a week. They showed up on time & ready to go. They didn't waste any time, and I was impressed with how professional and prepared they were, with all kinds of time-saving equipment. These guys are machines. Throughout the 4 hours they were with me they continually asked what I wanted, what more can they help with... all with a big smile & friendly vibe. All the furniture made it without a scratch. They moved our ~ 500lb rifle safe like it was nothing. I also loved that they came with extra tall boxes for loose things that I had yet to pack. Four hours of their time, moving from Beaverton to Tigard cost about $500 which maybe sounds expensive (?) but honestly I felt so comfortable with them and they did such a good job it's totally worth it. Overall, I would call them again the next time I move, guaranteed.

I rarely leave reviews even when they are deserved, but I felt compelled to leave one for Michael and his crew, a WELL DESERVED 5 star rating. Two months ago my wife had been offered a great job oppurtunity in East Palmdale California and immediately we started planning for the move. After a few unsettling and unprofessional talks with other so called “ professionals” I was one phone call away from cashing in favors with friends and family to get this done myself. FYI I didn’t want to do that at all..... Long story short, I found Michaels company, Priority Moving Services on Thumbtack and, to put it lightly, I’m glad I did. Michael is a young man with courtesy, professionalism, honesty, and work ethic well beyond his years. Within 20 minutes of phone conversation with him, I knew exactly what to expect in regards to service, cost, time, and procedure. This guy must have nailed it with his lemonade stand as a kid because he knows how to conduct his business. He explained which size truck I would need for the move and even recommended some options as to where to get the truck( not all uhauls are the same, as I now know). Michael and his crew loaded the truck safely, securely and efficiently. These guys exceeded my expectations from the moment they arrived. They literally rolled out red carpets for us( to protect my floors... lol). Energetic, polite, clean cut crew that treated my families belongings as if they were their own. When we arrived at our new Two story house in East Palmdale, there was not one single item damaged! Seriously, not one. WOW. Thank You Michael, you are living proof that good personal customer service and quality in workmanship still exists! As a side note, they loaded our patio plants last and even recommended we should give them a little water before we left.... No Kidding, his crew watered our plants from their own jugs of water they had brought to drink!!!!!

Pdx movers is contracted with ZippyShell. I had hired zippy shell to make my move across the country with four small children go smoothly. Zippy shell made everything worse. Pdx went above and beyond what they were required to do, from the front desk lady Audree going out of her way to call zippy multiple times on my behalf to the three moving men who unloaded the shell in record time-thanks Mychal, Daltan, and Brett. PDX was there for me every step of the way. I HIGHLY recommend them for any moving needs! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Small local job limited to one-bedroom size. My greatest concern was moving my movable base Sleep Number. This is a brick and mortar affiliate of National Moving. They have experience with Costco moving these specialty beds. All three referrals would have sufficed but I chose these folks because of these two reasons.

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use again.

Great Nation Moving seems to be a pretty popular moving company, so I'd recommend calling as early as possible in order to get your desired move date. Setting up the move was very easy and GNM had no issues when we wanted to change our move to a later date. Our crew was scheduled to arrive between 8-9am on 6/20 and they showed up right around 8:30am. We had a four man crew, all were super polite and were extremely helpful getting our place ready for the move (we were mostly packed, but due to some issues with our house we hadn't completely finished). They wrapped all of our furniture and helped us pack the last few things that we needed. I thought that they did a great job, especially considering the limited space in our town home. We also had some things at a storage unit and they took care of those things quickly and without complaints. All in all I was very pleased with the loading process. Unloading at our house they didn't have to navigate the maze that is my former town home had. They made a real effort to make sure that everything was unloaded in its proper place (not always as easy as it sounds when you don't even know where to place items yet). For all the issues that we've had getting set up in our new place, it was really nice to have something finally go really smoothly. We had a great experience with Great Nation Moving and we'd definitely hire them again. From start to finish it was a 5 day turn around to Houston, Texas.

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.
