Everything went so smoothly! We couldn't have asked for better service. They took such good care of our belongings and no request was a problem. They were also very gracious considering we had children and pets around probably making things more difficult for them. We highly recommend adelphia movers!

Alert: I almost never do reviews and it is because they tend to run very long - you have been warned! I found On-Demand Moving (ODM) through Thumbtack. I had to find a mover for my college student in Philadelphia. She and her new roommate were moving from two furnished apartments to another one within a mile (mostly boxes). Did I mention that I live in Houston? I needed to find a reliable, reasonably priced mover that would do what I was too far away help do. Lanre responded quickly and was very good with follow-up communication – answering phone calls and emails quickly. I chose ODM, who was not my cheapest quote, because Lanre could explain that more movers (3 instead of 2) were needed due to parking regulations in Philadelphia and what the cost of parking tickets were ($120!). The reviews I read also noted the care this company took with clients belongings with some even complaining about the move taking longer because of it. I would rather pay a bit more up front than deal with damaged walls and belongings afterwards – insurance claims and loss of deposits. Saving money and hassle in the long run are well worth the slightly higher cost of hiring a professional company to me. Once I got a quote and signed the contact I had to hand off the dealings to my daughter and hope for the best. She was concerned because she had a narrow window due to the assigned times from the apartment complex, had no car of her own, very limited help from friends/family and had never dealt with movers before. My daughter was fairly stressed about the move the night before because she had poor choices if ODM did not show up. She had also injured her foot so was less able to move herself – adding to her stress level. On-Demand Moving showed up in the window promised. Lanre brought 3 movers and was there to supervise the move. This greatly eased my daughter’s stress. They took everything and then some, including some items we thought my daughter would have to take herself for safety reasons. There was no damage. They ended up taking longer than the original estimate but this was due to: • The care they took with all the belongings • The two apartment pick-up required moving the truck. • The lack of cooperation of the complex with respect to access within the building. • Poor parking options due to location of the pick-up apartment and the especially the construction still underway at the drop off location requiring a longer trip from truck to door than any of us expected. In the end On-Demand Moving showed up on time and moved everything without damage. They took longer than expected but for several reasons beyond their control and that we were unable to give information about in the initial quote. They treated my daughter with respect and made a stressful day turn out wonderfully. I agree that you get what you pay for and ODM charged a reasonable price for great service. We felt that ODM has a do it right the first time attitude. I would use them again without reservation.

This was undoubtedly the best experience I’ve ever had with movers! They were polite, very hard working, and affordable. They did an amazing job and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. They moved me from the suburbs to center city up a 5 flight walk up and did it without a single complaint. Amazing experience!

Dante and his associate were the 2 best movers I've ever hired. They were polite, friendly, and efficient. At no time did I worry about my belongings. They moved our items from 2 locations to our new home, and they made the day easy and enjoyable. I will hire them again without any hesitation, and I thank them for such a positive experience.

I had movers bail on me very last-minute and Smooth Deliveries LLC was able to accommodate my last-minute needs. I communicated with Tiamokkee to coordinate the move and he was very kind and prompt in replying to messages and addressing my concerns. Smooth Deliveries LLC was very professional; they showed up ahead of schedule, were very efficient, and I couldn't have asked for a more respectful moving crew. Highly recommend!

We were working on a very tight timeline with short notice to move a pool table from a friend's house to our's. Ryan from ManCave Movers responded to my thumbtack inquiry within minutes. He was very responsive via email, text, and phone understanding our needs and working to accommodate our restrictive schedule. He set up an appointment for the very next day and communicated clearly every aspect of the job, his qualifications, and what to expect. Upon arrival, I was immediately impressed by how prepared, equipped, and knowledgeable he and John were. They took great care in their work, were timely, courteous, communicative, careful, and clean. They cared for both houses (this was a pool table move) as if they were their own. I would highly recommend them for any job. They were outstanding.

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.

From prompt email responses (and customer service follow up), to the final delivery...everything was great. We had a slight delay on the pick-up window, but I was called and made aware of the delay. (Plus, it wasn't Centurion's fault...the "move" they were picking up prior to mine was larger than the customer told Centurion.) Kevin, Kevin, and Rasheed where hard-working and kind--very professional while handling a family heirloom (a baby grand piano). I wouldn't hesitate to use Centurion Movers 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.
