Eduardo Hopp - the owner of H-Movers - was very professional and accommodating. He gave me the best deal from all other moving companies, and helped me on a very short notice (one week only). Eduardo and his associate Henry, show up on time, work fast, yet they are very careful -- none of my personal belongings (flat screen TV, computers, expensive wine glasses) were damaged or broken. I will definitely recommend H-Movers to all of my acquaintances, and use them again when I move next time!

Moving can be stressful and crazy. I was a little skeptical about hiring movers but these guys were amazing! Perla was such a sweetheart and helped us decide how long to book and what services we needed. The gentleman that helped us move were patient, kind, fast workers and respectful of my things!! They got the job done. We would have finished before the 3 hours we booked, but due to some difficulties with furniture not fitting through very narrow hallways we went over by an hour and a half. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with how professional they were. I moved from a 3rd floor to a 2nd floor and they did great. I would definitely recommend this moving company. Thank you Top Concierge

Everything about this move went exceptionally well. The movers arrived on time and were highly efficient in executing move, while ensuring the greatest of care was taken with our possessions. These guys went above and beyond in helping make this move so easy. The movers noticed a crack in one of the legs of the headboard, and were so incredibly helpful in both stabilizing it (thanks Sean) and in moving it with such care. They were so good about assembling a bed for me that I had taken apart prior to the move (many movers won't do this). It was a pleasure working with this moving company. I interviewed twelve movers, and CT Moving Helpers were the 12th. I wish I had found them earlier as it would have saved a lot of time and effort on my part. Kudos to a job more than well done.

Eric provided just what we required--moving all first floor furniture out for floor refinish, then moving all furniture back a week later. Both events went seamlessly, without incident, on time and in a very personable, professional manner. We were very pleased with his service.

Bobby Ambrosino and his crew supported our move from start to finish with care and attention to our needs. And Murray’s Moving did this while providing the lowest quote by, in some cases, HALF the cost! Thank you, Bobby, for sending wonderful packers and unloaded and thank you, Arthur, for taking such great care of our belongings on that long haul from Boston!!! Susan Conley Tampa, FL

This man and his workers did a perfect job moving me. They were careful, courteous and listened to what I wanted and did it. No nicks, scrapes or any problems. Yes use them. Their price per hour was the lowest in the area, too. What more could I have asked for?

They packed my belongings and even marked each box to which room it was going into at the new place. The gentleman wrapped all my upholstered furniture in plastic to make sure it stayed clean. Incredible job. Thanks Brendan.

WR moving helped with my 1bedroom apartment move into a POD. Pros: 1. They were very courteous and pleasant to work with 2. They very responsive to direction and re-arrangement requests to make maximum use of space (I don’t think they had loaded a POD before). 3. They worked hard and consistently - no dawdling or trying to run out the clock 4. They didn’t try to nickel and dime me or charge extra for helping to remove the base stand from my TV or my floor to ceiling shelves from each other and the wall 5. We had negotiated a flat fee for up to three hours and they left it to my discretion to top off since the job took three and a half Cons: will need close supervision 1. I wish they had been a bit more careful with my stuff (especially the assistant) - While I was upstairs with one, the other stacked my shelves on top of each other downstairs on its narrowest side, such that the wind pushed over and threw one on top of the stack down, breaking it - I found a dent in my expensive stainless steel bin the next morning from when they didn’t move it out of the way when carrying my couch - They tried to brute force my 55in flat screen Sony TV into its box when it wasn’t properly aligned with the cutouts in the foam seats inside - I had to tell them to take the TV out and turn it around - and they were squeezing the TV’s screen during the process to the point that I’m worried about if it will be damaged when I open it up and turn it on - They didn’t wrap my couch or the arm chair properly, even though I provided wrap. The chair literally looked like it had a belt on it not a wrap 2. For some reason, they didn’t show up with any doilies or moving carts, even though they had my list of items before hand, including 40 boxes. I don’t know what we would have done if my building hadn’t had a couple of hotel carts we could use. All said, I would recommend them because they did listen and adjust when I stepped in and gave directions. But supervise closely.

I move furniture for a living, so I can move items around. I can do furniture assembly. I have a pickup truck so I can transport things as well. I can do other general labor.

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.
