The guys that came to move us were excellent. They were prompt, courteous and did an all around excellent job. They did it in less time than was quoted. There was one minor issue that was resolved immediately. Thanks Emily your guys did a FANTASTIC JOB. I'm glad to have done business with your company. I had a move previously from CA to PA with one of the largest national moving companies and they sure could take some lessons from Moyers Moving!!!!! I will definitely recommend Emily to anyone who needs to move.

Darrel is very reliable , polite , courteous , helpful and understanding. Our appointment was at 8 AM, but he showed up at 7:50 AM with his own truck and one extra guy because i had 2 hours of work(appointment) and i needed to get the move done quickly, he dint even charge me for his time and accepted the agreed upon amount ($$$), dint ask for anything more. I used Reliable moving and labor services for the first time and can easily say I am fully satisfied. Darrel did an excellent job helping with the move. I can 100% recommend darrel for moving requirements.

Chris and his crew were wonderful to work with. Moving is no fun in the first place but the mover I had lined up bailed on me less than 2 weeks prior to the move so thank goodness for Thumbtack and Chris. Chris was quick to respond and luckily had an opening. They were prompt and professional. They kept things moving and even agreed to an extra stop. They made sure to pad things so that nothing got scratched or broken. I don’t know what I would have done without them. Thanks so much Chris. I will gladly recommend you and if I ever move again you’ll be the first person I call.

We hired JDog to help us unload a rental truck filled with about half of our furnishings. They showed up on time, worked steadily for more than two hours and were careful with our things and with the walls and corners of the house. In addition, a larger crew returned a few days later to finish moving a very large, heavy and awkward armoire that needed to go in the basement. This operation was successful with no dents, scrapes or casualties. I would recommend JDog for unloading and moving. They respect the items and the surroundings. They were great.

We had an excellent experience with On Demand Moving. Lanre and his team made a very stressful day and situation much easier! We had one day to move to a new home with a newborn in tow. The team was exceptionally respectful and professional. The move was quick with all furniture and articles protected well. Lanre was responsive and reliable during the preparation phases of the move. On the whole, I would absolutely recommend On Demand Moving Services to anyone looking for quality service!

Once I answered my door and shook the very warm and earnest hand of Bob Barry, I knew immediately that I had found a real gentleman to come and move my spinet piano! As he sat and began to 'make the keyboard come alive'the immediacy of my confidence in his ability to care for my piano was confirmed!! A true professional musician would be in charge of moving the instrument that brings me great pleasure and relaxation. I am grateful to have found Bob on thumbtack, and look forward to continued friendship. I wish him much professional success and anticipate the return of my piano sounding better than ever, because he will also tune it after moving it to my new home! Without any hesitation whatsoever, I wholeheartedly recommend Bob Barry to anyone who requires a piano moved and/or tuned! Warmly, Ida N. Gorman

As many folks have mentioned, moving is a ubiquitously hated part of life. But, in all honesty, Great Nation Moving makes it relatively painless. I have used many moving companies in my life but Great Nation and the moving team beat all the expectations. We moved to New England, and they did an awesome job. Came right on time, and did a quality job with unloading and setting up our belongings. We were packed and loaded in one day and delivered within 3 days without any scratches, dents, or missing items. They were on budget, nothing hidden, and the crew was fantastic and hard working. I Highly recommend Great Nation for a long distance move.

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.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
