Can’t recommend WM Mivers enough. They’re communication is excellent and prompt, they were running late due to another job but called well in advance to let me know and continued to update me throughout the wait time. Really amazing scheduling- my other movers cancelled and I was stressed about finding something last minute but they squeezed me in with less than 24 hours notice! Really amazing guys and excellent customer service. They are transparent about their fees and there were no surprises when it was time to pay. Super competitive prices without sacrificing quality and customer care. Will absolutely use them again and refer them to all my friends!

My first time hiring movers. Overall, took longer than expected and not enough of my larger, quality wood furniture was wrapped or wrapped well. Not unsatisfied, as the guys were pleasant and did the job. Would shop around next time.

I was happy overall with the movers! They were fast and efficient for me. Unfortunately the customer before me made the movers late for my appointment, but the movers called me right away to let me know when they are going to come and they made it on time...right on the dot! Thanks again 😊😊😊

Sara and her wonderful crew at Ashford Home Services were the best. We hired them to pack and move our 83 year old parents who had not moved in over 25 years. The Ashford movers were prompt, very hard working, polite, patient and understanding. Sara is very skilled in working with the special needs of seniors. I highly recommend Ashford Home Services.

Todd and Josh were outstanding in helping me solve a problem moving a couch upstairs. Previous movers had been unable to accomplish this. My staircase is small and the second floor ceiling is low. Todd and Josh were able to hoist the couch over the second floor balcony, then maneuver it past a challenging set of doors to the location I wanted it. This involved temporarily removing two heavy wood doors. I recommend them both.

I’ve moved several times in my life with several different movers. 1Source beats them all by far! I shopped around a lot for my move from Texas to Kentucky, 1source wasn’t the lowest bid but one of the most reasonable. Andy handled the booking process. He’s a very personable fellow, fun to talk with and put me at ease during a stressful time. When his crew showed up they were super friendly and polite ... really swell guys. They started quickly, assessed the task, asked a few questions and got right to work. They moved fast and worked great as a team. They really hustled! They wrapped everything, dismantled furniture, were very careful and caused no damage to walls or floors. This was a long distance move that had to be timed just right. They stayed in contact with us and arrived a half hour after us ... perfect timing. The move in was just as efficient. No scratches or dings on our stuff. These guys are excellent. Look no further.

Caleb and his coworker were PHENOMENAL. Not only were they extremely professional and fair, they were also kind and respectful guys to work with. They were able to move furniture for me on a 2 HOUR NOTICE and then went above and beyond to help me move a few extra pieces that I originally said I would move myself but they they ended up having room for on the truck. These guys certainly go the extra mile for all of your moving needs. For anyone moving in the Austin area, I would highly recommend Right Choice Movers! They were by far the best movers I have ever done business with and made moving a painless (and dare I say fun) experience!

Marco and his crew were amazing. They painted the entire interior of our home and used multiple colors of top quality paint. We had several spots where the Sheetrock was damaged and the boys at Galactic did a seamless match to the original. They even fixed a window sill for me at no additional charge. I couldn’t recommend a better paint company for the quality and price. A+ work from Marco and crew!

I never mind paying for good services. That is why I did not mind at all when I was paying Pick Up Movers for the move. These movers are real professionals and they proved that they can move anything. I was worried about my move but the movers showed the skills to overcome the odds and they delivered a very satisfactory move. They blanketed all my furniture to make sure it arrived without any scratches to the polish. All the fragile stuff and the glass ware was bubble wrapped and then placed in boxes. The boxes were also filled with shredded paper to further safe the goods. Finally the packers placed a fragile sticker on the box to make sure it would be placed in a corner of the truck which is lease prone to move. In fact most of this stuff was placed on the heave stuff and this was a very logical approach other than just dumping the goods anywhere in the van. Looking at their logic of packing I was sure that I was in safe hands. They delivered the goods and time and in pristine condition which I felt were worth every penny. Thank you guys for the impeccable service.

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use again.

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.
