I had such an incredible experience! WM Pro Movers is definitely the best moving company I have ever used, and I will be contacting them for anything else I will need in the future. They charged reasonable rates, and helped me understand what I needed/could expect from my move. They are also very friendly, which truly surprised me because I find moving companies to generally be very transactional in nature. Nate even offered to bring me extra boxes, and when I took him up on the offer, he brought them over to my place. The move turned out to be more difficult than we had anticipated, but they were working hard and quickly until the very end. Customer service hasn't been great with my interactions with other companies, but WM Pro Movers truly exceeded all of my expectations. I highly, highly recommend them to everyone!

We hired Lone Star Lawn Care and Services back in February. From initial contact to project completion was about a week—incredibly punctual compared to much of what you’ll find in other companies. Recently, we discovered that two yard sprinkler heads were enclosed within the flowerbed. After informing LoneStar of this oversight, it was quickly remedied. I will definitely hire LoneStar again for all of our landscaping and outdoor masonry needs. :)

I would recommend Night & Day Moving services 100%. The best ever moving services I found. Myself, my husband and friends were very impressed with these people work. Four people came for packing & moving my stuff. Each of one did fabulous job. They had taken proper care of my stuff & furniture We bought brand new furniture one year back and when we know that we have to move, we are really worried about our furniture. But after seeing these people work we were very much relaxed. The car also they took proper care. They put a car cover and gain packing that looked like car wearing rain coat. And all these they did it for reasonably low price. Also, we got 3 days late to get apartment in the new place. We called Alix, to check if we could change deliver date. To our surprise, he agreed without saying anything or asking for more money. Such a nice person is Alix. If we have to move any other place again we will definitely go with these moving services. We were very much happy with the service.

These guys are awesome. We had a challenging move from two locations into a bit of an awkward townhome setup. We negotiated our rate and found a great middle ground on thrumbtack for the move I was looking for. Let's start with timeliness. Spotted Frog was on time and met me out front of my downtown complex at 10 am on a Sunday. They signed me to an agreement and were up front on what happens when items break (they didn't) etc. Spotted frog owns a large trailer that is MUCH bigger than a normal box truck. Two people even came up and commented on their positive experiences with such a truck and how it was the way to go in the moving industry. Who knew? They quickly handled my washer and dryer, queen size bed, overpacked suitcase, and a few boxes. Within 40 minues we were onto stage 2 which blew my mind. My unit was on the third floor of a complex with thin aisle ways and they owned it! Our second location took longer but had a lot more stuff. The movers were particularly gracious and patient of our dog who was a bit unsettled over the whole move and throwing a bit of a fit. They may not look like Hulk Hogans, but let me tell you, these two moved a pain in the a** of a couch down two flights of stairs in record time. I've never seen anything like it. After busting their butts and kicking the second apartments butt, you would think to offer your movers a water or something of the like. I was blown away when they offered me one. Look, I can't get into the intricacies. These guys own, are polite, fair, and careful with your lives and stuff. I'm very happy I selected them to help me with this sensitive time in my life which is the changing of a home. Hire them! You wont regret it!

Drew came to our home and installed a 65" flat screen and connections. He also had to move the existing plasma upstairs and mount it in a new location. I had several "extra" things I needed and he did them too, such as mounting two very large mirrors on the wall. He was outstanding, professional, and highly recommended.

This was the best moving experience service I have ever had. I had a terrible experience with a bigger moving company, I won't mention their name, Moo, so I was hesitant to work with any other moving companies. However, I was blessed to have found Mario and Sara. They are hardworking, professional, genuine, and have incredible prices. You don't need to look at the huge commercial movers. If you want it done well Ashford Home Services is the one to hire. They also do packing, unpacking, etc. I am also hiring them to haul some things away. I absolutely recommend this company to everyone!

I moved to Austin in short notice and did not schedule any unloading/unpacking services with any moving company in Austin. No company could help immediately except Todd. He charged a reasonable rate and managed to move my entire one bedroom apartment's worth of furniture and belongings in just over an an hour by himself. I had a large sectional couch, large coffee table, queen sized bed and bed frame, and 8 medium sized boxes. He's quick, skilled, and friendly. I recommend using Todd if you are moving one or two bedrooms worth of materials.

Above and beyond! Hands down, the most client-friendly moving service we've experienced. Rarely do I write reviews (most often, it's just word of mouth) however, their work deserves a review. Working with Andy specifically, his team was prompt, professional and established a level of trust that separates them from others. Moving an entire home can be stressful (especially with a kid). Andy gave us an extremely very fair quote and stuck to it. No hidden games. During the move an item was misplaced. Not only did Andy take full responsibility, he apologized for the inconvenience and replaced it right away! He mentioned establishing trust with his clients is the most important aspect of owning his company. Moving forward, 1Source Moving will be our only moving company. Congratulations Andy, you've made a client for life. Thank you for your trust, leadership and quality of work. I am confident it will pay dividends. Choosing a moving company just became the easiest decision I'll ever need to make. Thanks again!

Brandon is awesome! He replaced 2 hanging light fixtures and 2 recessed can lights with track lighting fixtures at our office. He knocked it out in a couple hours even though we were missing a bracket and he had to run to Home Depot, he only added a $10 fee for the trip. I received 3 quotes from other electricians before going with Brandon, all saying the job would be really difficult and quoted me outrageous amounts. He came in, took a look and sent me an extremely reasonable quote. A lot of times companies will hike up prices for commercial jobs especially at a doctor's office. He did such a great job, not to mention he cleaned the site after having to do drywall work, that we paid him more than he charged. I highly recommend using HiiPower electric. Great work!

I just want to make sure everyone out there knows that this company is the best company I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I am almost 60 and I have moved about 30 times in my life. In all those moves, I was never as pleased and completely satisfied with a moving company as I am with Right Choice Moving. Caleb and his team treated my moving items as if they owned them. They took great care in wrapping and protecting, and moving an extremely heavy item up 40 stairs with a very sharp turn between floors. Not only did they move quickly and carefully, they stayed to make sure I was satisfied and did not rush me at all. They set up everything and made sure all was working properly too! They are clean, professional, punctual, polite and easy to communicate with on what you want, and they find the way to perfectly accomplish your moving wishes. Above All, Their Prices are very affordable and don't be fooled just because they will have better prices than anyone else out there --- their expert performance cannot be beat and is worth much, much more than they charge. I highly recommend them and expect they will expand quickly as they will be swamped by just my family and friends alone! Better book now while you can! Great job Caleb!!! Awesome Service!!!

Great group of guys (Brian, Nick & Robert) who took very good care of my furniture from storage to house. These guys hustle, even with the Texas heat and stairs. Brian and his team are a testament to the fact that you do not have to pay an arm and a leg for quality moving services. Will recommend Precision Movers to others moving in the future. Thanks guy!

Meticulous and respectful with impressive strength and agility! Everything you could want in a moving company. Tammy's team boxed up our entire home and moved us, including setting up beds and cribs. They moved swiftly, but thoughtfully. All the gentlemen I encountered were polite, courteous and eager to assist. It was a rainy day and they took extra precautions to protect our furniture. We did an initial walkthrough to pinpoint the more valuable items that need special attention and they happily followed every request I made, including setting up my daughter's first big girl bed in time for her to get home from school! I highly recommend Greater Austin Moving for packing, storage and moving. They are the BEST in town.

Daniel was great! Not only was he professional and persistent with obstacles that UT Austin West Campus apartments presented, but he was also patient with me trying to coordinate moving in 2 college kids at the same time! He even went with me to the hardware store to buy screws and bolts for a TV mount! You can't go wrong!

This is a great moving company. I used several other movers in the past, so it was easy for me to tell the difference. Frank did more than good to offer a suitable deal and schedule the move from TX to CA. The foreman of this company performed all the packing and moving maneuvers flawlessly with his team and beat the deadline and estimated price. They were so good, eventually came well more than what I was expecting. Thanks a lot Pick Up Movers for a stress free, smooth and affordable move!

Very nice people, nice company, reliable. Go for it. I went with a dedicated truck option and I don’t regret it. Never used a moving company in the states, only when I move here from France. I highly recommend. Both, they were so charming and helpful, as they transformed a “scary moving” in a smooth operation… Perfect move !

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
