I had a piano moved from Tolland, CT to South Glastonbury,CT. I thought the price was excellent. The movers arrived a bit early but that did cause any problems. My wife said the movers were very pleasant and polite. Job well done. Note, before hiring I did communicate with Omar to make sure we understood all the details which made the job go easy.

I decided to go with Born to Move because of the reviews and I'm so glad I did!! They had the best price out of the 5 movers, The people I spoke to over the phone were very helpful and I appreciated their confirmation call the day before. I got a call letting me know they were about 10 minutes away from my place on the morning of my move. The guys showed up right on time and were very careful to protect my furniture and belongings. They were speedy and very professional. I can't say enough good things about them. Thank you for such great service!

Son Light Movers, is very fast to help you, provides excellent support on moving items and ensures quality is delivered in what they do. I had them move some boxes from my sun room to the basement of my house as well some furniture to the attic and in both cases they performed the job very diligently and thoroughly. I think if you have chosen Son Light Movers, then you assured of excellent service. I strongly recommend them.

We had a wonderful experience with Miss Cheryl’s Movers. They were 100 per cent responsive to our questions before the move, they showed up 10 minutes early, worked really hard and efficiently and as an added bonus Jack and Lorand are really nice guys. We were especially impressed when I made note to Lorand about how we was so carefully wrapping a piece of our furniture and he said, “the most important thing about being a good mover is to treat someone else’s belongings like they are mine.’ Perfectly said and we’ll done! Thank you Miss Cheryl’s Movers.

The movers were on time, and I was paying by the hour so I was worried they'd be slow on purpose but actually they were extremely efficient. I'll be working with them for my next move.

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!

Verified review

After failing to hear back from a number of other contractors, I responded to a quote and was immediately engaged in a simple conversation resulting in scheduling a move. They didn’t need an itemized list like other movers, which I found helpful. The two movers were incredibly hard working, efficient, careful and courteous. They moved my 1 bedroom apartment in under 4 hrs w/ 15 mile travel time included. Nothing was damaged in the process, and I received a nice thank note for hiring them. With my experience, I wouldn’t bother contacting other movers that Thumbtack recommend, and just go straight to these guys. It’ll save you the headache and stress about not knowing if you’re going to get your move arranged in time and for an economical cost. Thanks Stanley and Ello! —Ryan

Fast, extremely efficient, and friendly yet professional movers, and Eric charged a very reasonable rate. They finished on time, honored their quote, and did it all with minimal damage, while also dropping off washer/dryer, a/c units and a bed at a storage unit, and taking a giant, heavy used fold-out couch off my hands. Will definitely be looking to use these guys 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 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.

How much does it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving 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. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
