Exceeded my expectations! These guys moved me from The Woodlands to the Austin area. I was nervoud because most of their reviews were local to Houston and when the guys showed up to quote us, he didn't come with the fancy iPad app that the others showed up with. He wasn't a broker, but actually one of the guys that would be labor that day. My husband liked it, though, and trusted him. Well our move came in under budget, they were on time, and did a fantastic job with my furniture. They even had to move my stuff into storage and into a small apartment. I highly recommend them!

These guys were atypical from previous moving experiences in such a delightful way. Arrived promptly in the established 2 hour window-when they knew it wouldn't be on the first hour-they called and communicated clearly. No fuss moving- I wanted to hustle and the move was within a labyrinth and across a multilevel apartment complex. John & Ira were just upstanding, jovial and energetic to say the least. Offered solutions and just got to work right away. I will hire them again. Veronica headlined office communication and project management-she's a superstar. If I could increase my project budget at work, I would try to steal their employees, just a challenge to find professionals who are succinct and thorough, they were all impressive! Next time, I will hire them to oversee the entire move instead of just the big stuff!

I reached out Thumbtack on Friday afternoon. I have never used the service but it had received good reviews. Within a few minutes Carlos contacted me. We had a few messages and they could meet our quick Monday deadline. They were very courteous, had all the right equipment for the job and were even early. I highly recommend A-Star for your moving needs. Thanks! And thanks Thumbtack, great service!!

I was looking for a handyman to help me move a 1 BR apt on Jul 28, 2018. Brady responded to my request with his quote. Then, I sent him pics of the furniture to moved, and a week before the move day, we talked over telephone. At that time, given his amazing reviews, he was first choice as a handyman to help me move. As the move day drew closer, for a couple of days, Brady stopped responding. This seemed to be strange as he had been very fast in responding to my text messages beforehand. So, I thought he was no longer interested and started looking for someone else. Then, a day before the move, he responded that he had been out of town. Given his amazing past reviews, as I needed a second handyman to help me move, I hired him as well. On the move day, he arrived on time and moved things cautiously yet efficiently. Regrettably, in our conversation, while he had indicated he had a moving Dolley and moving blankets, on the move day, he did not bring them. All the same, throughout the move, our interactions were pleasant and very friendly. Overall, I appreciated his work ethic and punctuality. Had Brady not have stopped responding to the texts while traveling and brought the moving Dolley and moving blankets, I would have totally given him 5 stars. All the same, moving is always a stressful experience but I was glad to have Brady by my side.

I recently moved from Missouri City to Pearland (10+ miles apart) and hired Betton Moving to do the job. I had never heard of the company before and at first was skeptical but decided to take a chance since they were available early Friday morning I also was quoted a great price versus the other big name moving companies who almost doubled the amount per hour that Betton Moving Co. offered. Mr Betton was very pleasant and professional he arrived with two other men at the allotted time slot, they were very efficient, disassembled beds, kitchen table tv stands, etc, they carefully packed up several large pieces of furniture and two large flat screens for us with plastic shrink wrap and blankets, very thorough, and fairly quick (4 hours). Would definitely recommend and use them in the future.

I have seen the best and the worst in the moving business. After relocating 4 times in my life, my opinion is somewhat of an expertise. There are so many moving companies who do the job poorly. But there is one company who is at the other end of the spectrum. I have hired Pick Up Movers. They have always performed exceedingly well. I just want to say that I am vouching for the potency of this company and recommending everyone to hire this great moving service.

Hired AmerApex Moving for a unique project at our hotel. In December we were tasked with replacing 118 bed and boxspring sets. Hired them to help us complete the task over a 2 day period. In this time they were professional, polite with our guests, and expedited the work exceeding our expectations. The cost of the project was within budget and I have referred them to our ownership group when then next project of this nature comes up. I would recommend them to anyone for a move, personal or corporate. You won't regret it.

Great Nation Moving is the most professional, honest and stress-free moving company I have hired and as we move often I find myself to be quite experienced with dealing with moving companies. We moved from 664 mile away, the movers packed and loaded our belonging in two days and delivered on the third day in torrential downpours the entire time, I cannot recommend them enough. The process with Great Nation Moving did not require much effort or stress from my part and the movers worked very efficiently. The administration staff is very responsive and eager to please. I cannot recommend this company enough

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.
