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.

The movers did a good job loading and unloading the items. We moved items from a storage unit to a house which they were able to complete in 5 hours. The only constructive criticism I have for this company is to honor the booked time. We booked and confirmed for a 8a start time but the movers didn't arrive until 9:15a. The coordinator Ms Veronica failed to clearly state there is a two hour window for your appointment time. I wasn't notified of the "two hour window" for appointments until after the fact. In the quote they only mentioned a minimum of two hours to booked the movers which is completely different than setting an appointment time.

I called Emanuel Movers to move a piano to a different spot in my home while the floor is being replaced after the flood. They came the next day after my call, arrived exactly when they said they would be there and moved the piano . They agreed to return when the floor is completed and move the piano back where it has always been. I would not hesitate to call them in the future. They are a pleasure to work with.

Our moving experience with Uriel Movers was excellent. They arrived on time, actually too early [1 hr earlier than the scheduled time] but they agreed to wait for us at no charge and worked with us till we were all done which consist of moving across town, loading and unloading 100 or so moving boxes and dissemble and assemble furniture between 2 stories. Our 3-men crew did a great job! - Thank you!

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!

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.

Better Deal Movers did a fantastic job with our move. The team arrived ahead of the scheduled start time, they were polite, friendly and professional, they took the time to disassemble larger pieces to maximize space in the truck and took great care of each item. They were so easy to work with and their price is definitely a better deal than most of the other movers I have used! Would definitely hire these guys again!

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.

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 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.
