These guys were awesome!!! We purchased a piano for our church and have a function this Friday evening. The original movers never showed up on Tuesday after they made us wait several hours before telling us they needed to reschedule to Wednesday (yesterday) and when they finally arrived yesterday after being 2 hours late, they tried to move our piano up 7 stairs and damaged our wall and the piano. Granted, it's an older piano, it was still damaged. They could not get the piano up the stairs and gave up after all that waiting and stress. I contacted Omar at All Pro Piano Movers late last night and he assured me he would be up early this morning to get the piano in for us. I could not believe how fast he responded and what an amazing job these guys did and . Truly our hero's! Not only did he show up and do an awesome job on such short notice, he also repaired the piano that the other movers damaged and he never charged us extra for any of this. I highly recommend All Pro! Thank you Omar and Crew!

I hired H Movers at the last minute, and from the jump they were extremely accommodating. When I scheduled the move over the phone after getting Eduardo's quote on Thumbtack, Crystal offered very helpful advice, as I had a few stops along the way to pick up various furniture before the final drop off location. I was extremely stressed about finding movers on such short notice and wanted to hug Crystal through the phone as she was so helpful and pleasant to work with! The three men that came to move me were extremely efficient and very polite. They also worked their butts off, as I had a lot of heavy, awkward furniture and a few sets of stairs! They made sure to put my furniture in each appropriate room once we got to the final location and checked thoroughly before leaving to make sure I was all set with everything and their help was no longer needed. No piece was scratched, dented, etc; they took great care of everything - even my clothing I threw in on hangers at the last minute! They did such a great job, I have recommended them to a family member that will be moving later in the month. By far the best money I have ever spent on a move and will definitely recommend them in the future. Thanks for your help H Movers!!!

I just finished my move today with Max, Joe, and Steve of Boston Best Rate Movers. This was my first time ever hiring movers and they made it amazingly easy! The total trip was from the 2nd floor of a storage (with a broken elevator!) in Boston to the 3rd-floor apartment of a Brooklyn brownstone. I was transported with my stuff to New York over great conversation, and everything went as planned with no complications. I would use them again in a heartbeat! The only thing I regret is the amount of tip I left them, which I found out after a quick google search, wasn't nearly enough! These guys were so amazing they didn't complain about it. Will definitely seek them out again/recommend them for future moves.

We had an excellent experience with New Frontiers moving. We called them Saturday evening to arrange moving a 6 piece mahogany bedroom set Alex was promp in replying and was able to move the set the next morning. The movers arrived ten minutes early and delivered on all the services we asked for- boxed truck, moving blankets, and carefully wrapped all pieces. The two movers did an outstanding job moving the furniture and the price was excellent. We highly recommend.

Flawless, courteous service from start to finish. Alex sent me a quote instantly, and stayed in touch the whole time. The movers, Divia and Tavas showed up on time, packed the small amount of furniture we had with care, and did a phenomenal job. The price was the best. Highly recommend!

We moved from a 2-bed apartment to a townhouse about 5 miles away. The moving took lot more time than expected, because, even though we were promised 3 movers, only 2 showed up. However, we were charged very little as extra as they accepted that it was their fault. On a whole, these guys are very hard working. Would recommend them, but make sure the right # of movers show up.

Jack and Fred are absolutely amazing!!! They made the dreaded moving day an absolute breeze. Unlike my experience with previous movers, they offered an honest service; quick, friendly and inexpensive. They're everything I always imagined movers should be. They also went above and beyond, suggesting and then helping us donate furniture that didn't fit in our new apartment. I couldn't be happier with choosing Miss Cheryl's Moving! You guys are the best!!

Great experience! They arrived on time and the entire move was incredibly efficient. Two movers came very prepared, and they were ready to even take down my mounted TV. I would recommend Step by Step to any friend or family member.

I was really happy by the service provided for my move. The communication was easy and simple before the move and on the day of the move, the movers were professional, efficient, and took good care of my boxes and furniture. I highly recommend 'the service man'.

I loved that Lexel gave me a fixed rate (no surprise charges!) and they quoted me much less than any other movers. They called me the day before to see if it would be okay to come earlier, and they called me around that time to let me know they were 15 minutes away. There were only a couple snags: I've never used movers before, so I didn't realize that they would ONLY take things that were packed in boxes (a liability issue, I guess, which I understand). I had a lot of thing packed in tote bags, open-top wicker totes, and laundry baskets, so I had to repack those at the last minute. This was a little stressful and lead to me having to make multiple trips with my own car - I wish I had known beforehand that everything had to be in a sealed box with a lid. I've been unpacking and my belongings seem to be in good shape so far. I've only found one box that appears to have had a rough trip (the box itself was damaged, and a smaller box inside was damaged too.)

The move went great. Movers did a great job picking up the pool table and an exceptional job reassembling it. The were extremely polite and courteous. My grandchildren loved watching them bring the table in. I would recommend them to anyone looking.

I wish I knew about them last time we moved. Mackeile and Ruben were such a great help. I remember how long it took our movers last time we moved and these guys completed our move 3 hours faster. Mackeile is an exception, you don't get to work with someone so professional in his field very often, he is really Super Mover !!!! Thank you Mackeile for a great moving experience, you and your time really impressed us !!!!

I needed movers the same day I reached out to them, and in the evening too! Most places I reached out to were very unwilling to help out and were quite rude about it. I was lucky to have Julian and his helper! They were fast and efficient and knowledgeable about what they were doing. Not a scratch on any of my furniture and they were able to maneuver my furniture up to the 4th floor in ways I could never have thought to do. In addition, they built my bed and set up my furniture so everything was out of the way. I cannot recommend these guys enough, you won't be disappointed!

These movers can hustle! Ang and Rob did the majority of our move but Sean also stopped by to make sure everything was going smoothly and to introduce himself. We had a lot of heavy pieces that needed to be moved down stairs and back up again. Everything was delivered in perfect condition. Rob even took apart and reassembled the larger furniture for us. Their hourly rate was consistent with other movers in the area, but they also came with their own truck and with how quickly they worked, I’m sure they saved us money (and definitely saved our backs and sanity). We decided to hire movers last minute and they were able to fit us into their already busy schedule. Everyone was super friendly and willing to do anything we needed. Highly recommend!!!

They arrived 2 hours early for my scheduled move, after calling to request they come 1 hour early. It was pretty stressful having to pull the last minute stuff together with them already moving things out. Also Amadeo accidentally charged my credit card twice and was uncertain of how to refund the second transaction. We did eventually figure it out though. Other than that, they were friendly and professional, worked quickly and none of my stuff had any damage. Can't really ask for more than that!

Much better than the last movers we used. We requested for 3 guys and they were very punctual. Came prepared with their own supplies and tools. Handled our furniture with care and wrapped EVERYTHING before loading into the truck. Price was lower than a lot of the places we called. Highly recommended. Ask for Marcus if possible.

About a month ago I started researching moving companies to try and get things all set in advance of our move. I called many companies as to do my homework. Erin instantly made me feel less stressed about our move with her great personality and professionalism. Fast forward to when the movers came (one being the co owner) They were on time, and shocked me with the quickness of their work but at the same time you can see they were paying attention not to get a mark on anything. Ron helped the guys with the move as well as gave the guys direction on loading the truck. I was extremely please with the entire process and will recommend them to anyone I know who is moving.

I work for a nonprofit that works with the homeless population and Home Run Transportation LLC was very understanding of specific details we need arrangements, like last minute availablity, multiple stops, packing and providing extra boxes when needed. Home Run Transportation was even willing to accept payment from a third party funding that takes about 1-2 weeks to receive. The guys were fast and reliable and I will make sure the company I work for continues to work with them. They respected the families we serve confidentiality and different needs . Thank you for understanding homeless shelters need for movers and taking the time to understand the funding that helped pay for 3 families to move into their new home.

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.
