I was so stressed out looking for last minute movers and eventually came across Thumbtack. It had me fill out information about my move and said moving companies would eventually reach out to me with quotes. I got disappointed because I figured no one would get back to me the day before New Year’s Eve...but ASAP Movers did and it was within 20 minutes! After seeing the quote, I decided to call...expecting to get disappointed given how last minute it was and because the holiday was coming up. Instead, I got the greatest news! They could come the following morning! It took 3.5 hours for the move (including the 45 minute drive to the new place) and they were so professional! I made sure to save all of their information because I will not be using any other company for my next move! I HIGHLY recommend them!

My Son was moving from an apartment into his first home and instead of renting a truck and having friends do the move we decided to hire a moving company. We searched the Web for moving companies and came across Moyers Moving Services. At first I was a little apprehensive about hiring a small moving company since I have always used Nation Wide companies in the past. After reading the reviews I decided to take a chance on Moyers. Well, it was a chance well taken because this company puts the Big Boys to shame. They are professionals from the word go. They showed up at the exact scheduled time. Elliot and Dan were the movers and I can't say enough about them. They were very profession, courteous and careful. There was not one scratch or any damage to any of the furniture or walls and there were no broken fragile items. The move was also completed in the allotted time. I also want to thank Emily for taking the time to answer any and all the questions I had in regards to the move. After speaking with her, my mind was put at ease and I knew I was making the right choice. My Mother is moving this Saturday and yes, Moyers is doing the move. Thank you Moyers, it's a pleasure doing business with you.

While my movers were a few hours late due to a previous job that took longer than expected, Art kept me in the loop and made several phone calls to provide updates. I have a few awkwardly-shaped/heavy pieces of furniture that were handled with the utmost care. Plus, my movers were friendly, courteous, and helpful. My one comment is that the truck comes with two guys - which does prolong the time it takes. In the past, I've used moving companies with three workers - two to carry items in/out and one to load the truck - which expedites the process. In addition, I moved A LOT of boxes and bags myself prior to the move day, so most of the items moved were larger items that I couldn't carry myself. That being said, the price was reasonable and the guys were friendly. All in all, a solid experience. I would use them again.

David and his moving partner exceeded my expectations. Overall they made my moving experience much less stressful. They arrived on time, were professional & courteous, moved my belongings quickly and with care, used a great looking trailer along with moving blankets, dollies, carts, etc. David Engle provided service that you would expect only to find from the most expensive moving companies, but at a much better value.

OUTSTANDING!!! I was lucky enough to find Jeff at the last minute as my move came up very suddenly (the weekend of Labor Day). I did a lot of research and was alarmed by what I read about how moving companies handle you and your stuff. Speaking with Jeff helped to ease my nervousness. We spoke a few times on the phone and via email, he was readily available to discuss any concerns I had. The day of the move they were there before me ready and waiting, got to work immediately and had my stuff packed safely and neatly in the truck in no time. The unloading process proved much the same - again reaching the destination before me and making short order of moving me into my new place. They even put my furniture together! Jeff takes pride in his work and his staff and that shows. To anyone considering hiring him - DO NOT HESITATE - he is worth his weight in gold. If you want a smooth painless process give him a call. Thanks for making my move so very easy!

Josh was super helpful! We had a very difficult couch moving situation and the legs had to be taken off and then put back on. He was very patient with the situation and even came back again to fix the legs of the couch. He is super handy and even helped me build my new desk and hang some things up for my roommates and me. Also very fair pricing compared to other moving companies!

I don't usually write reviews but Robert did a wonderful job and I'm compelled to write a review. Robert did an excellent job in delivering furniture we bought from a local store. It was a heavy piece (solid wood big TV stand with fireplace), and Robert and Carl knew how to handle it well. Robert was very responsive from the time I got in touch with him. Everything was communicated well in advance and I knew what to expect. He was punctual (actually was few minutes early). After setting the TV stand in place, they helped taking the packaging to the garage. They also helped moving my old TV stand and TV two flights of stairs. Very pleased with the overall experience. Would hire him again without any hesitation and would recommend him to friends and family.

I had two other moving companies decline moving a large Norditrack treadmill from my garage to a 2nd story room. The guys at Centurion moved it without hesitation and without any damage to the walls. They even covered my wood floors to prevent any damage. I highly recommend this company.

I contacted 4 moving companies within a three day period to which no one responded. When I contacted Carlos 3 days later, since no one else responded to me, at 8:00 AM, my phone rang at 8:03 AM and he offered me the best deal and everything was prompt and smooth sailing from that moment on. They showed up exactly when they said they would be there, actually 15 minutes earlier, and made my move very quick and smooth. I would definitely give them a 10 star rating and recommend them for their prompt response, accommodations, professionalism and friendliness, not to mention the best price quote out of all the companies that I called. Carlos is very laid-back, very friendly, very accommodating and very easy to deal with.

I liked moving with Last Minute Moving and Storage. They were very nice and friendly. This was my first time using moving service and if I was moving again I would use this service again. They moved all of my stuff securely and they would help you with from packing, moving to even cleaning but you need to tell them before hand so that they can bring all the packing and cleaning stuff. Also, it's a good service if you don't have much time to plan your move as the name suggests Last minute Moving and Storage. But I feel the move could have been better if they had brought stuff for packing like tape, scissors, padding etc. I felt one of the worker was more active than the other. Also, please have cash handy or zelle app because they don't carry credit card machine.

I can not recommend First Class Moving enough! We had a different moving company no show for our house move even though we had been booked on this date for over a month. We called First Class Moving and they immediately sprung into action. Despite it being their 3rd job of the day, they started moving our house at 4:30 in the afternoon. They worked clean and extremely fast. We were completely moved into our new house by 8 PM that night. I literally don't know what I would have done without these guys. Frank and Dom were nice, personable and honest. I would give them more than 5 stars if it were possible. They ended up being less expensive and better people to work with. USE THESE GUYS! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I was referred to Prestige when I was overwhelmed with my 3 bedroom house move that my husband and I originally planned to do alone. We were so happy that we decided to choose a moving company instead. The owner was very professional with the initial phone call and walk-through. The day of the move, the Prestige moving crew were on time, kind and very professional.

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 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.
