I had a wonderful experience with Texans Movers. My trip started with a phone from the team to keep my up to date on their ETA. Tony and Jose were my movers; and I couldn't have asked for a better team. They were fast, efficient, and courteous. They took the time to understand my move (it was fairly complicated with 3 stops and items going in and out of different places). They wrapped every wooden piece and upholstered piece of furniture with both moving blankets and plastic wrap before taking them downstairs. I was most impressed with their energy and attitude when their was a mix-up at the place where I was moving to with the elevator not being available at the beginning. They didn't slow down for a second as they started moving my items up to the fourth floor using the stairs. Luckily the elevator became available later on to use. I feel like it also has to be mentioned that the property manager of my new place was also impressed with Texans Movers. There were 11 people moving in all on the same day, and he said they were by far the best team he's seen. He even asked for their cards to recommend them to future tenants. It's a great feeling to know that working with movers was the easiest part of my moving day. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone I know. Thank you for excellent service!!!

I definitely recommend Graceful Movers. I initially requested 3 movers, but only 2 were available. Turns out that my 2 movers, Mombo and Cleo, were more than enough. They were on time, quick, careful and very efficient. They moved my 1br apt to a house and a storage building in just over 2 hours. When I need to move again, I will be using Graceful. Great service at a great value.

This is my first time using a moving company and the service was great! Jonathan and the movers were awesome, professional, courteous, and great attitude. Their professionalism really put my nerves at ease. The price was really great, and affordable. I was able to use a"coupon code" to waive the travel fee, for $75 an hour (two hour minimum), $50 deposit, plus $35 insurance, and I ended up paying $135. The movers were done in 2 hours (moved from a 1 bdr to 2 bdr) I cannot express how grateful I am that I found this great company. God bless you guys, keep up the good work, and if I move again it know of someone I will recommend you guys!

We worked with 4 My Kidz Movers today. They offered me better price than other companies and they were also so professional. They moved my huge, heavy coffee table. lt was almost 200 pounds and 2 guys pick it up from another place and moved it to my house. They were punchtual, attentive and professional. Very good price and good service. Highly recommended!

Mr. Shields came to my rescue when my previous movers cancelled after 7pm the day before my move! He was reasonably priced, on time, and helpful the entire time. He reassured me that he would take care of my move and he did flawlessly! They were even kind when my girls decided to help (and were in the way). I cannot tell you how blessed I feel to have found this company. I will NEVER use anyone else again. Honest, kind, trustworthy, and dedicated! God bless you and your company for coming to my rescue! This is a company that provides perfection in moving services!

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!

These guys are absolute machines. They moved me from a second story unit to a third story in 90 degree weather in about 4 hours, transit time included. I got them lunch on the way and they barely stopped working to eat. Not a single scratch or dent on any of the furniture, they took a lot of care wrapping everything well. Did not find any other movers that even came close on the price. Definitely will keep Victor's number for any future moves and would recommend Precise Moving to anyone looking to move.

Their service was excellent. Their price point was right on. They were on time, handled my prize possessions with care. My three movers (Paul, Juan & Eric) worked together as a team to accomplish all tasks. I would definitely recommend them. Zeke coordinated all efforts from office, came to my house prior to move to give me a very fair bid. It was a very pleasurable experience all around.

These movers are excellent to work with. We are having a complete repair & remodeling of our living area and needed movers to move heavy furniture and over a 100 packed boxes into a pod in our driveway. They were on time, very professional, courteous, fast and took great care of our belongings. We will be calling on them to return when reno is completed to bring our treasures back inside. I would highly recommend their services. Great job guys!

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.
