All-Pro Piano was hands down the best moving company Ive ever dealt with. I had to move last minute and I called around to other moving comanys which didnt return my phone calls or gave me a ridiculous price to move my piano. Then I got into contact with All Pro Piano _(Omar) I left a message and he contacted me immediately with a more then fair price. The next day (less then 24 hours) my piano had been moved to one location to another. I highly recommend All-Pro Piano! They went above and beyond!!! Thank you

These guys did a great job moving me to my new apartment. I was iffy about hiring them because they were not a major moving company and there were not a lot of reviews but for a local move they were the perfect match. For future concerned movers: they've been in business for seven years but have only started doing residential (non-college: Brown, RISD, etc.) moves 3 years ago. The negative review below me did not understand that they give you a 2 hour arrival window, they are NOT giving you the exact time the entire move will happen. When they schedule moves back-to-back, which they claimed only happens on weekends or at the end of the month, they have to add in slack time from the previous job in case it runs over their estimated time. If you are able to book them on a weekday that is not at the end of the month then they will give you an exact time they will be there.

Tom and the guys were EXCELLENT! Fast, friendly, and professional. I would highly recommend their service. They were extremely helpful and went above and beyond, even moving large items I was not moving to my new place to the dumpster for me, and when the things did not work out at the storage facility I'd arranged they arranged to store my items in their storage. Moving is stressful enough, do yourself a favor and book with Tom!

Spartan Movers did an excellent job of making our local moving experience, which could have been stressful, a breeze. They arrived on time, communicated effectively, followed our guidance without confusion, wrapped everything appropriately, and packed and unpacked efficiently. I'd hire them again.

Very professional and well-organized. Our local move (with 2 trucks 4 crews) from a local storage (2 locations) to a large house went very smoothly and efficiently in 4 hours without wasting any time. We are very glad to have their help.

Mike and his team were amazing. Lamar, Jamie and Nate were kind, fast, helpful and funny! Moving is the worst and having a team who keeps a positive attitude and vibe makes a huge difference. Because I booked late, they had to rent a truck from uhaul in the morning which did impact our start time - but they did a tremendous job on my five mile local move with complicated furniture and random box sizes. They even installed my a/c and did a great job setting up furniture. These guys are awesome!

I would like to thank Lexel Moving once again for all the hard work they did. We moved a 5br house from Winchester to Newton. Everything went smooth from start to finish. We requested an onsite estimate from 5 companies and only 3 were able accommodate our need. To me it doesn't make any sens to hire someone to do something that they didn't even take a look at. At the onsite Ross was very informative and professional - Lexel took the leadership right there. We received the quote the next day and the price was reasonable considering all the furniture to be moved. On the actual day of the move a crew of 4 guys arrived first thing in the morning and all of them were friendly and professional. They had all the tools to take care of taking the furniture apart and putting it back together. We were very pleased with the way the crew wrapped all of our belongings and the way they handled our grandfather's clock. The pendulum and weights were left spotless! Great Job! It took almost 11 hours to get the job done. In the end of the move all of our furniture was placed as we wanted and our movers installed felts on some of it. Overall experience with Lexel? They are unbelievable! I would definitely recommend to use those guys!

These guys were awesome. Every other place quoted me a price then added all these extraneous fees after we had chatted for a bit. Round The Clock Moving was also available at 7pm, which was really important for us because we got off a plane at 5pm! They were super efficient and professional.

We had a job for moving a really old table from CT to NY - good condition but with some nuance. John and Pat not only had the best price but also provided warranty on the assembly. We scheduled a week before and I confirmed the day before and in the morning. They were prompt in response and showed up on time. Installation was smooth with no complication what so ever. I had a few cues with missing tips. They not only helped but even left me with new ones, which I think is way above and beyond. Don't know how they got the couple negative reviews but I would highly recommend them to anyone and have them back if I needed anything done in the future.

I had a great experience with Aable Moving, who we hired to move a spinet piano. First, John was very responsive -- providing me with a quote very quickly and promptly answering/returning my calls. He and his crew showed up exactly in the window they estimated and moved our spinet piano efficiently and with no damage to our home or the piano. John is also very personable and great to work with. I highly recommend this moving company!

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.

I had a great move with Flash -- they were very communicative and answered all my questions leading up to the move. They were prompt, polite, and professional on the moving day, even through the temps were creeping up on 90. ( Thanks again you guys! ) I especially appreciated that when my couch didn't fit up the stairs, they were able to hoist it up and over the porch and through the door. That could have been really stressful but they handled it so smoothly it didn't even feel like a hiccup. I would hire again.

I wanted to share the awesome experience I had with Poseidon Moving on Wednesday. Chris, Elly, Amir, and Vlad moved us from Medford, MA to Kingston, RI. They were ruthlessly efficient (carrying three boxes at a time kind of efficient), respectful of our homes and our belongings, and nice people. On top of that, they were very fair with pricing, which I really appreciated. I saw the 120 or so five star reviews Poseidon had on Yelp and didn’t really believe it (how can movers be that good?), but now I get it. Thank you for making a stressful experience easy for us.

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

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.
