The men came a little later than I anticipated but they were great! They were friendly and helpful. Even though the hourly rate was higher than the other movers, they were so fast the total price was less than the other flat rate quotes I received.

ABH moving are Very Professional and extremely courteous people. They were punctual. Extremely heavy pool table (Non-Slate) was to be moved over upstairs. They did it very well. Other movers refused to move pool table. ABH movers did it with ease and at a reasonable rate too. I would definitely recommend them to others and will be a repeat customer.

Bellhops did a great job. Last year when I moved itens to the storage facility, the movers I used back in 2016 did a horrible job. The other company played around and scratched items. It was a nightmare because new furniture with no marks was scratched. The Bellhop team did a great job. I am so relieved. I was stressed because of last year and Bellhops eased my concerns. I am very pleased with the Bellhop team. They were amiable and cordial! I am so grateful. Three furniture items were from my childhood furniture set and at least 32 years old. They took great care.

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.

Great company. This is our 2nd time using One World Van Lines. Friendly staff, great pricing. Did require a “shuttle service” at delivery, but access to the lot was very tight, so it was understandable and reasonable to work out. Movers were on time and gentle with our belongings. They caught our attention on dings and scratches on furniture that were there before placing them in the moving truck. Wrapped electronics carefully. Very friendly all in all. Will definitely be using them again and referring them to all my friends that are moving.

Fence repair. After the torrential rain & gusty wind we had the past weekend, we realized 1 of the section broke down around 6PM. Put a search on Thumbstack, he called right away & said will be there to take a look in 20 minutes (it was still raining out). Came by & gave the estimate (which was the same price as others that came by later). We decided to hire him on Monday around 10AM. The job started by noon time & completely done by Tuesday AM. Highly recommend him to anyone who want to get things done right & FAST!

    Moving companies are weird! The ones who have capable movers charge too high and the ones who charge less are downright newbies. That’s when Global Movers came into the picture since they quoted very reasonably and they have an impeccable track record. As I saw the men working, I realized how lucky I got with them. Moving is hard work and best left to the professionals like these men. The movers took great care of my belongings and delivered them safely. I really don’t need to praise these guys with details because you will just adore them when you hire them.

    I was really surprised with how low the quote was provided by King David Movers. Luckily, they backed up that quote with four amazing movers. The boys arrived on time and packed everything carefully. They worked tirelessly around my house packing everything. It took 3 hours to finish loading everything onto the truck. The delivery was made on time and nothing was missing. I couldn’t find any new scratches on my pieces while they were in their custody. I really got an amazing service from King David Movers at a very low cost.

    I had a wonderful experience with VIP moving. When I originally called to get some moving quotes, I spoke with Lisa. She was very helpful and really knew her stuff. She gave me a great price and I decided to use their services. I called often with questions and she was always very patient with me. They came on time and the movers were very professional. The same thing for when the truck arrived at my new house. I will definitely not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others. Michelle

    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.
