I called other moving companies however they all wanted to set up a time to come and do an estimate. No one had times after 5p or weekends to come to my apt. They insisted that I needed to take off work to accommodate their schedule. Not Moyer's! Everyone was so nice! From the first conversation to the last, my expectations were more than exceeded! I would recommend them to everyone! There was even an option to assist with the actual packing! I cannot say enough good things about this business! I loved our experience!

Chris and his team were extremely professional, prompt, and a great value for the work they did. All other moving companies refused our move because it was only a mile apart and only had beds and dressers, but Chris had no problems with the work we needed done. He should be commended and comes highly recommended by me for his work!

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.

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

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!

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 did a job for me about a month ago. They were cheap and fast. They were very careful with my things that's what I was worried about most and they exceeded my expectations on that. But in all they did a great job. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a cheap and reliable moving company.

Verified review

Joe and his team clearly aim to please and quite frankly went above and beyond today. I had them move a heavy 500lb safe down to my basement and bring an old rear projection TV up. The TV was so large that after trying for a few minutes we all realized that it had to be disassembled to fit through the stair landing. They didn't hesitate to disassemble it, per my request of course, and kept things moving right along. As for the safe, it barely fit on the stair landing so there wasn't room for the hand truck wheels plus the safe. I was amazed when they man-handled the safe down the stairs without the hand truck! They could have simply told me that it wasn't going to work out, and offered to put the safe someone else. However, they wanted a happy customer and pushed themselves. It's very rare these days to come across people of their caliber. These men work intelligently, efficiently and safely and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing moving or junk removal services. Thank you for your service!

Stephen and his team were professionals, from the start to finish. Stephen was very responsive with my questions early on, and provided a detailed breakdown of costs. I felt confident that he truly understood what the requirements of the job were. Even better, he did a site visit prior to the start date to make sure he had adequate supplies for the job. I hired Stephen to do a thorough clean of a new home construction (post-construction, prior to move in). His team was on time and very friendly and professional. They spent the entire day on the job, and did a fantastic job. I felt like they took a lot of pride in their own work - they mopped and dusted the new hardwood floor multiple times to get it clean, all on their own initiative. This was no easy task given all of the dust from construction! Stephen even notified me when they found a leaky pipe under a cabinet! Overall, I am extremely pleased and would recommend Stephen Jones SVS and use his team again.

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.
