Very good experience. The guys were very happy to use my boxes, tape, and bubble wrap to save me a few bucks. They worked fast and were done in 3 hours moving a 1BR apt into storage locally. Definitely suggest them to others.

Bellhops made moving my one bedroom house to another house so easy! They were prompt, friendly, and fast! I anticipated it taking them 2-3 hours to move my stuff, but they did it in an hour and 4 minutes. I was amazed. Bellhops helped relieve so much of my moving anxiety and stress. I would definitely recommend them to everyone!

I have a very tough lawn, on the side of a hill with trees (Forest Hills), and have had trouble getting a good lawn person. Keon did a great job, he came on time, had a fair price, not the cheapest but fair, and most importantly he did a great job on a tough lawn. And he's a very pleasant person to deal with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He has been in the lawn business for a number of years, but took a break for a year or two, and is just restarting his business, so he is not overloaded with customers.

These guys were very communicative, rates were easy to understand, and they were cheap. Big con: they were an hour and a half late. And I was their first job of the day. They said that there was traffic and then that their GPS has sent them to the wrong address. My opinion is, you allow time for traffic and your GPS is an inanimate object that you tell what to do. I started to panic that I was going to get stood up, but I was assured they'd get the job done. They arrived and got straight to work. They apologized for their tardiness and had me walk them through what needed to be done. They did not slack for a second and seemed to wrap and pack things carefully. Their truck was smaller than most moving trucks but they knew how to pack up everything I had neat and tight. They unloaded into my storage unit again, neat and tight, and right in the two hours they'd quoted me. While I wish I could have gotten some sort of credit for the hour and a half I sat and waited, I certainly can't complaint about their price. I'm sure they'll just keep getting better.

I contacted them on very short notice. They arrived on time and moved a 2000 square foot home for me. They were very friendly and overall it was an enjoyable experience. Well as enjoyable as moving can be. They worked 10 hours but the day was so long because we were not packed or anything, we ended up closing on our house a week early so it was a last minute scheduling. The only thing I would suggest that i have experienced with other moving companies, and i have moved a LOT and used moving companies from 2 men and a truck to local movers, would be to allow clothing to stay in the drawers and just wrap it, and also to put beds and such back together. We have a TON of stuff and miraculously the only thing damaged was my coffee table. I would use them again. Just be prepared to put your furniture back together yourself and keep up with the nuts and bolts. Their rates were very reasonable as well.

Alex and company are amazing! We were being strung along by our big-name moving company, and needed to be in Missouri to start a new job. After yet another delay, and yet another "guarantee", we were desperate and found AmerApex Moving. Alex contacted us on a Monday and by Thursday, they were there! They were absolute lifesavers, and did everything they could to take care of our belongings and make us feel at ease. And then they were in Missouri by Saturday to unload everything in our new house! On top of that, they are incredibly friendly and made a stressful situation feel much lighter. We can't thank Alex enough, and wish every moving company out there could be half as professional and effective as his!

Although they had a lot of moves to do at the end of May, Strong Men were able to fit me in. He brought more than enough workers to get the job done quickly and professionally, even helping me to get some other items to my personal car. We were able to finish the move in under the estimated time. I am definitely using them again when I move again later this summer.

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.
