Darell and his co-worker did an excellent job negotiating small spaces and being creative to find solutions to fit furniture through doorways and stairwells. Reliable Moving was also very reliable. I would highly recommend them for local moves like mine.

We were moving into a new house, and needed it cleaned before the movers arrived. I called David with the short-notice request, and he was very responsive and accommodating. He personally came to clean with a member of his staff. They did an excellent job.

The poor movers got a rude awakening when they arrived and I was far less ready for them than I was supposed to be, and I had twice as much stuff as they had expected me to have. But, they hunkered down immediately and got me fully packed in very good time. Plus they were friendly, polite and diligent.

We bought a second-hand piano for my son and tried (and failed) to move it ourselves with a truck. Didn't make it out of the room it was in! I contacted thumbtack for a mover and found Barry. Not only did he move the piano, but he tuned it perfectly and astounded my Mother and I by playing several beautiful songs to showcase how well he tuned it! Now I have a perfectly tuned piano and plan to see Barry play next Summer on a tour of the Susquehanna! The price was super reasonable and I am very happy with the service he provided.

I had a great moving experience with this company. I was promised 2 movers but I they brought 3 & still kept my rate the same. They worked hard & quickly but were very careful with my belongs. I was worried about going over the 3 hour minimum but they stayed within the time limit which was great. I didn't have to lift one piece of furniture or any boxes. This definitely made my moving experience very easy & stress-free! I would definitely recommend My Labor & Moving to my friends & family. Well done!

I moved to lancaster and hired quality east coast movers. I was very pleased with how everything went. They were very professional and got everything done in a timely manner. They were very careful with all my furniture and nothing was damaged. I would definitely recommend them to anyone trying to move.

They messaged me in the morning saying their truck was not working. I waited hours while they supposedly were looking for a uhaul and said they’d have one by 12. They called and said wherever they were told to go, there weren’t any trucks. They said they’d come the next day with an extra mover, and get it done quickly. Next day came, no movers. Called them, no answer. Had to rent a uhaul and look for help on a Sunday last minute. If you actually want help movers, hiring them is a gamble. I was very patient and am forgiving but serving customers is usually the point of having a business.

I will surely recommend Movers & co every time I hear that someone I know is moving. I was nervous about my moving day but once the movers arrived I felt such a sense of relief. They took the time to wrap and protect all my larger items while moving them. They were very efficient, courteous, and professional.

Manageable moving provided me with the most efficient, fast, reasonable moving experience I could have ever asked for. I have moved around a lot and have hired a lot of movers in the past none hold a candle to Roger and his company. They were on time and very respectful. They were extremely professional and best of all they were by far the least expensive in the area. He made everything so easy packed up all of my items big and small and unpacked everything. They made sure everything was cleaned up properly before leaving. On top of all the great service and prices I got a new bedroom suit off line and he and his employer assembled everything without me even having to ask them. I would highly recommend them to anyone I am not big on writing reviews but I felt as though they deserved it. I couldn't be happier. Thank you manageable moving.

Put out a request and James got back to me within a couple of hours. Three men came out shortly after and got everything we needed to be moved around the house quickly and professionally, including an extremely heavy armoire that other movers said couldn't be put where we wanted. Very nice people too - courteous and cheerful! They also were able to haul away junk and furniture we couldn't use for a reasonable price. Very happy customers!!

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.
