The 3 movers were 40 minutes late to the agreed upon appointment time otherwise they would get 5 stars. Once they arrived, the 3 movers worked hard and got the job done in 2 hours. I would use them again if I needed to move.

Blue Mule Movers were awesome. I found I needed movers at the last minute and when I spoke to them it was no problem and my movers were there the next day. The move went smoothly, the movers were efficient, quick, and respectful. I would recommend them to anyone, they were the best choice of movers I have ever made.

The move went well overall although the movers were 45 minutes late arriving, I'm assuming because they came from another part of town. They handled my furniture with great care and set everything up.

We have hired Elite movers twice in the last year. Although I don't plan on moving again any time soon, if I did, I would certainly call them again. I was beyond pleased with Thomas and Elite movers. The crew is amazing---efficient would be putting it mildly. They completed our last move in 4 hours, start to finish and that included unloading a storage unit. Each crew member is so nice....it rained during our last move and they showed extreme care with both our belongings and our home. I am so grateful for Thomas, Chris, and the rest of Elite movers. Thank you so much for all your help.

They showed up ahead of the scheduled time at my request, at the last minute notice. The guys that loaded my truck were very careful with all of my belongings & did an amazingly fast job of figuring out the best way to load the truck. They did a loading job that would take most movers an hour & a half to 2 hours, in just under an hour. I told them about my 1300 mile drive to my destination & they loaded my uhaul to where not only will nothing shift on me, but also distributed the weight to give me as smooth of a ride as possible for that long drive. Very highly recommended. My only complaint is that I wish they were in south Florida so I could also have them unload & arrange the furniture for me lol. Great job guys, awesome & easy company to work with. Hire them & trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Our movers were excellent! Due to a clerical error, only 2 men were assigned to a three-man job, and with a smaller truck than I originally asked for. Can’t really blame the movers for an office error! The two movers who came did the job with a great attitude and worked very very hard to get the job done as quickly as they could. I’d give those two guys 10 stars if I could! We were very impressed. (The office should probably get it together though, lol.)

I found a great new career that needed me to relocate from Dallas, TX to Los Angeles, CA. I was doing some research online and came across Dallas Moving. I gave them a call and they explained everything to me in perfect detail. I have never moved across the country before, so I was apprehensive about this whole ordeal, but I knew I was in good hands with them. I knew I made the right choice by booking with them. On move day, the movers showed up on time. They were very professional and packed my things nice and neatly. I was very impressed! As I settled into my new Los Angeles lifestyle; I sent for my things to be delivered to me. Afterwards my things were sent to my new place. Nothing was broken and the movers even helped me rearrange everything. I’m so happy with the work that they did!

The price was very good, and the two movers that came were excellent and professional, and very flexible and accomodating. The one critique was the difficulty of reaching someone on the phone, and not getting a confirmation phone call.

The Bellhops arrived 15 minutes early and finished 30 minutes ahead of schedule. They worked hard and quickly and were careful not to damage anything. They were polite and asked questions along the way to ensure that they moved things they way we wanted them to. The booking process is very easy and you get a profile of the movers a couple days before your move. It's also easy to email them with any questions. I would highly recommend them and use them again.

The movers were about 20 minutes late from a project before lasting a little longer, but once they arrived they were extremely efficient and worked very quickly and carefully to stay on time. I had stairs and that didn't affect them at all. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend!

I had an emergency need to be out of my apartment today and I hired movers but they cancelled on me at the last minute with no regret. I was panicking and my friend discovered Little Smith's Moving & Delivery. Not only did he show up on a last minute request, he was quick and professional! Very nice & respectable with a great rate!!

It was a pretty easy job, and they were already working on a project across the street. I asked them to remove a mattress and a trash can full of old paint buckets, both of which I had pulled out to the curb before they arrived. Super nice people, and it took them about 5 minutes. The only thing that wasn’t very professional... the guy asked for $100.00 when his price on thumbtack was $80.00. Most of us pick people by price and by reviews. If anything, I thought the guy would say “hey, this took us less than 10 minutes and we were already in your area. Let’s knock it down to $60.00.” Needless to say, I paid what was quoted to me.

I loved this move! Let me start off by saying I love that this company is 24/7! It was hard to find someone that would be able to work around my schedule for work and different things I had to do but Universal Movers was able to do it last minute AND for a great price. CJ and Brian did my move and they were nothing but amazing. I had more items in my storage unit than I thought and it was a long walk on the third floor but they had great attitudes about it the entire time. CJ had a great system for moving all of my things out of the storage unit and they both got everything into the truck and into my apartment (which was also on the third floor) in a timely manner. I'm definitely coming back to this company whenever I need my stuff moved out!

I was very pleased with my decision to hire big Tex. Andy was very helpful and upfront with his prices and the movers showed up on time and ready to work. The two man team was positive from start to finish and even very patient and helpful on rearranging the furniture after. Made a usually stressful time for me easy.

I would recommend this company to everyone. Our first movers never showed up and the second one cancel, so abundant was our last hope for the day. The owner Greg promised he would get us moved and he did. Awesome moving company. Great service and great price. We was very happy and impressed with his guys. We will definitely use this company on all our moves. Thank you so much Greg and team

Great experience from start to finish. Unfortunately had to call at the last second because shipping pod was delivered late. Called first thing in the morning and the movers were there within 2 hours. They worked fast and efficiently to get all of items in my apartment in enough time for me to be productive for the rest of the day. Would definitely recommend and use again if needed to. Thanks Gents!!

The two guys showed up to work!!! Asked me what needed to go where and then did it. Even with 2 flights of stairs. . They just did their jobs and didn't complain and most of my things were heavy. Will use then again!!! Did I mention they came at the last minute because other companies didn't have time.

Professionalism is something most business people lack. The moving companies are not any different. I was so glad to see that one company actually is super efficient. I hired Pick Up Movers to move my belongings. They sent over 4 movers who were on time and got to work immediately. I had a lot of stuffs. But the movers didn’t complain about a thing. They put their heads down and packed for hours. It took them 3 hours to pack and load everything from a 2 bedroom house. The best thing about the movers was that they were so hard working and very skilled. I am thoroughly impressed seeing their professionalism. Highly recommended.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
