Tenant moved out of apartment. Eric's girls came in and scrubbed the place - bathroom, windows, fridge, cabinets (inside and out) windowsills, etc. We were very satisfied and plan to use them again after a tenant moves out.

Joel and one of his workers moved my aunt's furniture from a second floor apartment. They were extremely professional, courteous and efficient. They treated the furniture with such care and wrapped the mahogany bedroom set with a plastic wrap so it arrived without a scratch. They were also more reasonable than the other estimates. I have recommended them to other friends and will be using them again in the near future. Thank you Joel

    About

    Never call another storage company again! Storing your belongings the old way means renting a van, loading your items, unpacking them and then repeating the process when you want to move everything back home. The team at Zippy Shell thinks that’s too much work, which is why we created a super convenient portable storage container and delivery system. Instead of driving across town to find storage, let the storage containers come to you. Our trained specialists will deliver a portable storage unit at your house, condo, or apartment. After a few days, they will pick it up and bring the unit back to the Zippy Shell storage facility. This climate-controlled location is clean and safe. You never have to worry about your things. Plus, you keep the keys, so no one has access to your storage unit but you. Once you’re ready to get your items back, our team will return the storage unit to your home. Zippy Shell strives to change how people think about storage by removing the exhausting work. Take your time loading and let us worry about where and how the items are stored. Moving Made Easy in the Lehigh Valley & Surrounding Areas When you’re looking for moving companies in Lehigh Valley, PA, consider calling Zippy Shell. We can move your items across the street, or across the country. Call us for a quote to learn what size container would be best for your move. Even if you’re not ready to move yet, Zippy Shell can help you plan your staging and decluttering. Many homeowners place items in storage while their properties are on the market to make them appeal to buyers. If you need to declutter your home but don’t want to donate or throw away furniture, keep them in storage until your house is sold. Once you move into your new residence, the team at Zippy Shell will drop off the container at your new doorstep, so you never have to visit our storage facility or repack your stored items.

    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.
