Original estimate was $349; final bill nearly $1,000. While a good job was done, I felt a little taken advantage of price-wise. Will consider it a lesson learned to be present for the move and to find a service that will offer a fixed price.

1/23/2015 I hired Dean for my move and the service was excellent. Dean and his movers keep in constant contact with me on the status of their arrival. It took the movers exactly 2 hours to load, unload and set up my furniture. They were very professional and handled my items with extreme care. The rates were excellent and I even tipped them for a job well done. I will be utilizing their services again as well as recommend them to friends and family.

Michael and his helper Lucas do full service moves as well as packing and unpacking. They were on time and they cleanly wrapped up the items for free and they delivered it within 2 hours at my location. They were pleasant and cheerful and handled the move very well. I scheduled them at a short notice of 4 hours and very happy with the service. Highly recommended and will use them for further moves too.

I needed help packing and moving my dad's whole apartment He is ill and could not participate in the packing. Tailoring Spaces helped to ease my discomfort about packing all his things. Organized all of his things and packed everything. His house was a mess and I could not do it cause I was upset with his living situation. I live in another state. I would recommend using this service for any packing, moving or cleaning. I am forever grateful! It was hard to process all the things that were going on with my dad.

I'm so glad that I chose Bellhops for my move. I used the labor option w/o moving truck because I was moving less than 50 ft. from my old apartment to an adjacent unit. The two movers arrived as scheduled and went above & beyond their work duty! One mover helped repair a broken bookshelf that I had planned on throwing away. Alongside the amazing repair, the movers both worked very quickly and efficiently. I cannot praise them enough! Thank you Myles and Eric for making my move so easy!

Me and my family were very pleased with Big Heart Moving. Kurt was courteous, professional, kind and responded to my many texts immediately. I was trying to get my parents moved out of their house in Seabrook to Clear Lake when Hurricane Harvey made an unwanted appearance and we had to cancel their move at the last minute. Kurt made sure to contact me and let me know and then once the storm let up and we were able to safely get around he got right on the job to helping my parents move. The movers were quick and efficient. And they had the best pricing around. Thank you! I will highly recommend you guys to anyone needing moving services in the future.

This was my second time using their service for a home cleaning, and once again they exceeded my expectations. Adrienne and Gil showed up early for the scheduled appointment time and were very friendly as well as very accommodating as to what needed to be done. Not only did they go above and beyond on the cleaning, but they got up stains that a previous provider was not able to get up. Its clear that they take pride in their work and the results show proof of this. I plan to always contact them for their cleaning services. I can't express how grateful I am for their services in such a short turnaround. My home literally sparkled and smelled magnificent!

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.

Big fan of One World Van Lines!! I was moving a full 4 bedroom house due to a new job opportunity in California. Getting bombarded with calls and emails was overwhelming (big mistake). A quick search in Austin, TX showed One World Van Lines. My representative, Philip, offered an onsite visual which made everything so much easier. He took his time to walk me through of what to expect and what to do to save money on my end. I chose One World Van Lines based on my agents customer service, attention to detail, and me feel comfortable from day one. Once the movers showed up, they didnt wait or slack off, they got straight to work which finished up pretty quickly for a full house pack. Having expensive decor, collections, and antique furniture made me feel very uneasy at first, however, they were not only careful, they made sure everything was itemized and at the end, NOTHING was missing!! My agent got a great price and quick turn around on delivery! I will recommend One World Van Lines to my family and friends!!!

Moving across the country is stressful. Great Nation made things so much better. I read horror story after horror story about every moving company, scary. Finally, I just went with my gut, which was guiding me to Great Nation. I was afraid of standard things like items breaking or being charged way more than expected, but mostly I was nervous about my things arriving in a timely fashion so I could begin my new job and feel organized. I was picked up and delivered 3 days later. It was super fast and I was almost afraid they would get to New York before me. I would not hesitate to hire this company. My contract was spot on and I had zero issues, no damage, no scratches, no breaks! They take extreme care with wrapping all my furniture so I was very happy to see everything arrive in perfect condition

Shame and his co worker were very professional. They are friendly and work very fast. All of my furniture was extremely heavy and had to go on the 3rd floor, and it was late at night. The work was done within one hour. I was very impressed, and will also be in touch for wall mounting services as well. I will definitely refer this company and keep contact for future moves.

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.
