There are many moving companies out there. We have never had the best of luck hiring a mover, as they have always been "just okay". I decided to hire Texans Movers, as the reviews were the best of all the companies we saw, but a little more expensive. We never have high hopes for a good job. Wow!!! We were blown away! They were early to our home, got started very quickly and worked in very hot summer conditions with very high humidity. I thought they would be slow and take lots of breaks. But they continued to push through. I even felt bad they were not taking breaks like most movers do. They were absolutely amazing. What we thought would take 10 hours (as it has taken in the past), only took about 5 or 6 hours! Money well spent for their per hour rate. They treated my home and belongings as if it were their own. I had NO damage to any of my items. And no damage to my home. Thank you so much for blowing us away with a great group of men!

In today's times there is nothing more appreciated than good customer service and people who do what they say. I would like to thank CRDR Handyman Services on my resent move. They showed up 10. The prompt response to an unscheduled move was AWSOME! The movers worked very fast and incredibly careful. They were very careful about avoiding scratching the walls and furniture. They were very professional throughout my move and gave me a great price for relocation my household furniture to my new location. I would recommend them to anyone doing a move as they definitely impressed me!

When I requested quotes for moving my apartment, Bruce responded with the lowest price. I scheduled a move with them and hoped I wouldn't regret going with the "cheap option" later. It turns out, it was a great idea. My movers showed up on time and ready to work. Carlos and his silent friend immediately started bringing my stuff to the truck. Both my old and new apartment were a decent distance from the elevator, but they didn't complain about it. They also took a lot of care with the plastic wrap, tape, blankets, etc. to make sure that none of my possessions were damaged. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

I definitely recommend Graceful Movers. I initially requested 3 movers, but only 2 were available. Turns out that my 2 movers, Mombo and Cleo, were more than enough. They were on time, quick, careful and very efficient. They moved my 1br apt to a house and a storage building in just over 2 hours. When I need to move again, I will be using Graceful. Great service at a great value.

Experience was outstanding. Movers showed up on time and ready to work. They took excellent care of my belongings. Price was what I was quoted. I needed help with cleaning my place when I moved out. They also had a cleaning crew that came out and did an outstanding job. Communication was great with this company. Will definitely use them again!

I had a very pleasant experience with this moving company. The owner and his workers were very polite, professional, and personable. They called me about an hour prior to arrival to let me know the status of their arrival, they were on time, they were very careful in handling my furniture, and the price quoted did not change. I will use them again, and I will recommend them to others. Great job Emanuel Movers!

The movers at AmerApex Moving could not have done a better job moving our belongings over 2,000 miles away. The crew was on time, polite, very careful, and kept the move fun and in good spirits. Nothing was damaged and the price did not budge a penny. Thank you again for making my move across country stress free. I will be recommending AmerApex Moving to all my friends and family!

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.
