This was the first time I had ever hired movers. The experience I had with this company far exceeded my expectations. Josephine in the office was so pleasant and accommodating. Even offering to call me outside of regular business hours to better suit my schedule. The price for 2 movers and a truck for 3 hours was extremely reasonable. On the day of the move the guys were early, which I appreciated. They worked well as a team and worked quickly and efficiently. As a single woman moving between 3 different properties with 2 men I didn’t know, I have to admit I was hesitant about what to expect. But, I never felt unsafe. They were nice, helpful and extremely professional. Every aspect of my experience with Moyer’s Movers exceeded my expectations. I would recommended them highly for anyone needing moving assistance.

We could not have asked for better movers. Darrel and Michael were on time, fast, efficient, professional, and courteous! We had several questions prior to the move and Darrel responded quickly to each one. These guys really knew what they were doing and had our truck packed neatly in no time with room to spare. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone in the area!

We were moving from a one bedroom apartment, but had some extra furniture in the basement storage. Dave arrived with two movers and they moved quickly and efficiently. We were very pleased with their service.

Had a "yucky" job.... moving my son's belongings out of a low-ceiling basement (I'm 6'1") and knew that 50% of what was down there unseen would have to be trashed. In the midst of making 20+ calls to local movers and dumpster providers, we received a quick response from David / Kingdom Movers with an initial bid. This was my first experience with Thumbtack so I was a bit leery. I was immediately able to speak with David over the phone and explained my initial plan re: movers transporting all of the contents out of the basement with some going into an on-site dumpster. He outlined his plan of action (3 movers with a 16' truck) and then offered a cost saving alternative -- they would load and dump our unwanted stuff, and then move our saved belongings into the storage unit for a very reasonable price. Date and time immediately confirmed! David and his team showed up and I knew within five minutes, this was going to go much faster than I had ever imagined. He quickly outlined the plan with his team, and all I had to do was review each box/item quickly and designate its "destination" (storage vs. dump). Only one hour and twenty minutes to clear a place packed "Hoarder" style up the basement stairs into 2 piles and into the truck. A small glitch with our local dump sites delayed the move a bit, but it was not problematic especially since the team had included one extra person than originally planned. David actually had to arrange the dump unloading for a separate day/time and the way in which his team consolidated everything to fit into an already packed storage unit was so impressive. David and his team were so courteous, friendly, and never complained about any of the inconveniences, i.e., the heat, the basement, the dump delay, etc. The end price was actually a bit less than we had estimated. I know without a doubt when it's time for our next move, I will not have a problem finding a reputable and incredible moving company.

There are so many local movers to choose from that it is difficult to narrow down. In the end, I chose On-Demand Moving Services because of their honesty. It's easy to acknowledge a great review, but not so easy to respond to those few negative ones. This group does not shy away from responding. That touts honesty to me. The three men showed up on time, navigated some tough stairs, and the job came in under budget. Total professionals. They even brought a cover for my matress to keep it from getting soiled. Not one item was damaged, nor no damage to the walls. Would definitely recommend.

Quality east coast movers are great ! They helped me move from bronx NYC to Hoboken New Jersey , Victor was very nice and kind and his partner . They covered all my furniture with blankets and carried out all my boxes with caution because I had a lot of dishes packed At least 4 China boxes they came early , the job took about 3 hours from 9am till 12pm . By 1:30pm they were unloading at my new place in nj I mean, I don't have much furniture I had 1 queen mattress huge head board big dresser and a few boxes but these guys are good. The teamwork amazed me. In just a few hours I was in my new home. Thank goodness because some Boxes were heavy and furniture are fragile. I could not have done this on my own. If I had to make an improvement to this move . You got to smell good victor was cool but the other guy kinda smelled funny, he just had my whole apartment in a odor during the move. Was kinda funny, Some deodorant would of helped or some cologne :)

I recently moved from Wilmington, DE to a DC suburb and my experience was excellent. The movers took apart all of my furniture--even my daughters crib and put everything back together when we arrived at my new apartment. I was amazed at how quickly and neatly they packed all of things onto the truck. They also made an effort to work with my schedule and were kind, polite and professional. I would definitely recommend them!

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
