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!!!

last minute change prevented me from making it personally, sent my girlfriend and the job went off without a hitch. They were respectful and kind and helpful, easy to communicate with, and we're very affordable.

The Here2Haul team took a bad situation and made it better. They arrived early. I had a pod delivered and asked them to help unpack it into a new home. My key broke off in the lock of the pod and once opened, they kindly and courteously followed every request and took special care with all the items. I've had many movers in my days and these guys are among the best. They were considerate of the belongings and even came back after leaving to ensure an item was placed safely and in a good spot. I couldn't have asked for better.

Our experience with "Majestic Movers" was excellent! Michael is a true professional, very knowlegable and his prices are affordable. His crew was responsible and efficient. I knew right away that we would be in good hands for our move. The day we moved out it was snowing and Majestic Movers were on time and took great care in protecting our house and items from the weather. During the move into our new home, Michael and his team worked hard, placed furniture and boxes exactly where requested and they were very helpful getting us set up. Our whole moving experience was stress free and I would highly reccomend Majestic Movers for any job. Thank you Michael.

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.

Both Chuck and crew were fantastic. I had to call him last minute because sweet movers left me high and dry. Chuck came to my aide and did an outstanding job.

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!!!

I hired the movers to move a large & heavy piece of furniture, that I had picked up at a sale, from my car into my apartment. They were very accommodating to my schedule, and they were swift and handled the job with care.

I totally HATE moving. Having done self-moves in the past. It was ENORMOUS relief to hire movers for my most recent move. They are prompt, hardworking, professional, and their prices are reasonable. Most of all, no damage to anything. Hopefully, I don't move again but if I do I know who to call. I highly recommend them.

      We love Tylor! He pretty much handles anything we throw at him. A few weeks ago he came over with an hours notice to assemble our gazebo that we bought for a party we decided to throw last minute. He’s also been a HUGE help moving and assembling furniture, random odd jobs around the house, and he even comes to mow our lawn whenever my husband throws his back out. He’s also insanely inexpensive compared to other quotes we receive. Whenever I ask why, he always says he just enjoys the work and helping people. We’re kind of jealous he’s starting on Thumbtack. Whenever friends have an issue we tell them to call “our guy.” He was our best kept secret, but not anymore. :( He’s a true gem. We’ll never use anyone else!

      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.
