I originally scheduled moving with Cordobe LLC for tuesday 8/16 at noon. I called them at around 12:15 just to get an idea when they would be coming. I just wanted some form of eta, I would have been happy if they at least gave me some eta even if it was a 3 hour eta, but the office said they could not get a crew and did not know eta but would call me once they got a hold of the grew. A little after 3pm (3 hours after scheduled move time), I still had not hear back from Cordobe, so I called Elite Movers to see if they had anything available that day or the next. They were able to fit me in with an arrival of 1pm-2pm on 8/17 with a call to let me know when on the way. I also had scheduled people to unmount my Tv for me, and they cancelled on me too. At 1:03, I got a call from them asking about my gate code. I did not get the call that they were on the way, but I work only 1 mile away from where they were. I managed to get to the apartment when they were pulling up (I went the back way through the apartment complex). I show them to the apartment, I show them what all needs to be moved. I informed them that the place I am going to is on the 3rd floor. I do not believe the leader of the crew, an older guy, read the quote because he seemed surprised to hear about going to a 3rd floor, and surprised about getting a tv from a storage room at my apartment complex on the way, both of which were discussed with company when scheduling. The older guy kept calling the office, and I could hear him complaining about doing another move with a 3rd floor apartment that day. This complaining (granted not to me) started while we were at the starting point which was on the ground floor. I started to feel bad, so I started to try to help a little putting some of the smaller things into my car. I have already done a good amount of moving boxes on my own over the weekend. I originally planned on being lazy while the movers were doing their thing because I could barely walk Sunday with all the moving I did Friday and Saturday, but hearing that guy on the phone made me feel a little bad. I asked them if they could help unmount the TV. I was not asking for it to get mounted, just get it either off the mount or off the wall since I cannot carry my tv (I am 5'1, I simply do not have the size to be able to carry it alone). They said that is something they normally do not do but they will take a look at it. I told them if they cannot, I would figure something out. They were able to get it off the mount for me. I then had a printer that was too heavy for me to carry alone. They did not have room for it if I wanted my other tv moved, so I rearranged stuff in my car to put it in my car instead of their truck. That was the last thing from the ground floor apartment. We then went to the storage room at the apartment complex, and got my other tv out of there. It barely fit in their truck, but we got it to fit. They followed me to the new apartment (only around 0.25-0.5 miles away). They started to unload the truck, and I unloaded my car with the little things I had put into it. They unloaded things into the hallways for awhile. While they did that, I unloaded the smaller things I had put into my car. They brought up the Washer and Dryer first, but once brought up we realized the bifold door to the laundry room would cause a problem. So they put the W&D in spots out of the way to be dealt with later. One of the guys saw the stacks and stacks of boxes already at the new apartment and made a comment about how I already did a lot of stuff on my own. I had no kitchen counter space because of all the bins boxes and bags I already brought. You also could not even tell that I have a fireplace because the stacks of boxes covered that wall. I could hear the older guy calling his company and complaining about the 3rd floor multiple times while there. The 2 younger guys were great and just keep moving and pushing on. I moved multiple things from the hallway drop spots to my apartment. Some of the stuff I moved was stuff the older guy put on the 2nd floor and some was in the 1st floor hallway. I offered water and sunkist to them, but they said they had water. While one of the guys was putting together my bed, he apologized for the older guy saying it is their job to do moves and he shouldn't be complaining. At this point I just sat down on the floor talking with him while he put together the bed. I was exhausted. The older guy and other younger guy moved the boxes up while the bed was getting reassembled. Once the bed was done, the only thing left was the washer and dryer. I called the office of my apartment to see about getting a maintenance man to come out to get the door off. They said they would call the maintenance people. About 15min later, I called office again to see if they got ahold of them or not. One maintenance guy and supervisor already went home, and the other one was at a call at another apartment. The movers could not wait another hour to see if the maintenance showed up or not, so I paid and they went. Them not being able to get the washer and dryer plugged up is not their fault. I did not realize how much space that door took up until the movers were there. Several hours later, I was able to get a friend to take the door off, and we measured; everything would fit through the door and into the laundry room now that the door is off. All in all, this company was nice and helpful. They got me in last minute. They helped me with something they normally do not do (taking Tv off of mount). The older guy was not the most professional calling and complaining, but the 2 younger guys were incredibly nice. This was the first set of movers I have ever had that were not hispanic, and they all spoke english clearly as their first/main language. It was a good experience. I would hire them again. I just would like to not overhear complaining by one of the movers.

The entire process went smoothly and quickly. From calling for a quote to moving day, the whole journey was amazing. I moved from Denton to Dallas. Second story apartment to another second story apartment. The movers called me an hour before they arrived, moved furniture quickly and arrived to the new location quickly and unloaded. They made moving easy!!

Be warned. Think twice before booking with this company or else pray that nothing goes wrong. Hired this company for a local move on June 10th, the moving crew showed up on time and were quick in unloading and loading. However, several pieces of appliances were damaged during the move. It was pointed out to the moving crew and I was told that the owner will be in contact with me. No calls was received. I contacted the owner and I was told to provide more information and pictures. No updates whatsoever after that. Contacted them again and was told to provide the same information again. This goes on for several weeks until I realized that this company has no intention to do the right thing. I sent them another message today asking for partial refund to cover the damages caused but my message was ignored. I understand accidents happen but this company claims that they are fully insured and bonded, it should not be so difficult to file a claim. It will not end here. Pictures attached is just one part of the damage.

We hired this company for 2 days......pack and move. Received a call from Red Carpet Moving the day before to confirm dates/times. Both crews showed up on time. They worked quickly and efficiently, and were very respectful of our belongings. Crew leaders Erica/packing and Luis/moving were easy to communicate with and responsive to our concerns. We received follow-up calls after each service day re: if we were satisfied. The pack/move went without a hitch! Nothing was damaged. We highly recommend Red Carpet Moving!

Had scheduled and received confirmation with another moving company for a particular day to move. Need to be out of my former residence by March 31st/ The company I was scheduled with for the move on 03/29/2017 sent me an email on the evening of 03/28/2017 stating their driver had a family emergency and they would not be able to move me on the 29th as scheduled. But offered to move me on April 1st. This was not acceptable. D & J contacted me immediately and quoted me a reasonable price and was able to move me the same day. The owner and his staff arrive in a reasonable time, came in a view the items I needed to mover and advised me on how the move would proceed. They were great. Very professional, asked questions and when everything was loaded onto the truck drove to the new location, they placed all the items where I wanted them to be placed and when I asked their opinions, their suggestions were greatly appreciated. I plan to use tem again for my next move.

I want to recommend Dallas moving to anyone who has to move out of state. They moved me from Lewisville TX to Los Angeles CA. The process of setting up the move was friendly and reassuring, Olivia was patient and went over all the information I needed to feel comfortable. The crew on move day was on time within the window of arrival Olivia set up for me. They were all dressed in blue uniforms and looked very professional. They wrapped up my stuff as if I was moving super expensive furniture (even though it's not) I feel like the crew that came really went above and beyond to make me happy with the service. It's not everyday you really feel like you get your money's worth and moving is not cheap but their service is definitely worth the cost. The truck was loaded really carefully. They were very equipped with tools to break down the bed and tables. Very highly recommended. Thank you for a great job!

Eddie and Tanner were friendly, funny, efficient, professional - amazing. They made moving as pleasant and easy as moving can be. They didn't mind that my move took two trips to and from the old place and new place. Would hire again, and probably would marry either of them!

This company was quick to respond and made it easy for me to hire them. My cross country moving company couldn't get the sofa thru the front door, scraped up an inner wall trying, then just left it on the outside landing at my apts! Youngstars Moving came to the rescue and had it inside in just under 5 min.

Highly highly recommend Smith’s Moving & Delivery. Both LaDavious and Terrance were professional, kind and efficient. I have moved 11 times over the past 5 years and these are BY FAR the most excellent movers I have ever had the pleasure of an experience with. Nothing was broken, messed up or even scratched. They got all of my large furniture pieces and about 15 heavy big boxes down 6 floors at one apartment and up 8 floors at another with no trouble whatsoever and they never once complained or refused to move anything (which believe it or not has happened multiple times with other moving companies). As long as they are around, they are who will be moving me in the DFW area. Use them, you will not regret it!

Hard working and very professional. I'm extremely pleased with Matt and his crews work!! They went above and beyond my expectations and then some. As complicated and stressfull as moving can get, they had everything well taken care of. I'm not one for reviews but it had to be known about how well their service was!! They not only moved my stuff with perfection but I didn't have to worry about assembling anything. These guys are awesome! I would highly recommend Nothernstar moving company, and definitely plan on using them again here in the near future!! Thanks again for the stress free move and excellent customer service, you guys keep up the good work!!

I hurt my back right before a remodeling move was needed. Rico came that day and packed my fragile nic-nacs. The pod had not arrived, so they came back at a convenient time for me. They were fast and reliable. Lots of small items needed moving. They handled the larger items, too.

They were my first movers ever and I had a fantastic experience. From the first call with Charlie at their office to thanking them after moving, could not have asked for a better experience. Everything was so systematic and orderly. CJ and Dustin who moved our stuff were super nice, courteous, quick and careful with handling all the stuff. I would highly recommend them and look forward to working with them in the future. Thank you so much you guys!

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.
