There are many moving companies out there. We have never had the best of luck hiring a mover, as they have always been "just okay". I decided to hire Texans Movers, as the reviews were the best of all the companies we saw, but a little more expensive. We never have high hopes for a good job. Wow!!! We were blown away! They were early to our home, got started very quickly and worked in very hot summer conditions with very high humidity. I thought they would be slow and take lots of breaks. But they continued to push through. I even felt bad they were not taking breaks like most movers do. They were absolutely amazing. What we thought would take 10 hours (as it has taken in the past), only took about 5 or 6 hours! Money well spent for their per hour rate. They treated my home and belongings as if it were their own. I had NO damage to any of my items. And no damage to my home. Thank you so much for blowing us away with a great group of men!

These guys were exceptional. I called Mr. Brooks at the last minute because he was the best rate going considering the amount of things I had to move from a house to an apartment (I had to downsize my life considerably) as well as the distance of the move; from deep in Missouri City off Hwy 6 to the middle of Downtown Houston. Other companies wanted to charge $65 per hour to $99 per hour with a two hour minimum and something they called a movers fee of $69. Just when I thought I was gonna have to take a ride with the fee the other moving companies were charging I read a message on thumbtack from Mr. Brooks stating that he could move me for $175 based on the amount of furniture I had and I jumped on it. I will say I was a bit apprehensive because his price was so low in comparison to the others... and as that old adage goes, "You get what you pay for." I got more than what I paid for. 1) exceptional customer service, 2) personable personalities, 3) hard working and efficient gentleman that enjoyed what they were doing. I moved furniture as a means to make money when I was in college so I know first hand how tough being a mover can be. I highly recommend these guys to anybody else in need of a moving company. I would really like to see these guys expand and grow, if I wasn't in financial transition right now I would put money behind them to do such. To help them better serve you always be upfront and honest about the exact things you will need to move. It assists them with their logistics...I threw some things in at the last minute but they made it work. If you are reading this Mr. Brooks I would like to thank you and your helper for your service. Sincerely, R I Norsworthy 832 983 0379

I hate dealing with moving companies. In the past, I have had issues with hidden fees, trying to uncharge me, and attitudes. These guys are awesome. The gentleman I spoke to on the phone was nice and professional and upfront. Any time I emailed to verify scheduling, they responded right away. The two guys that showed up were pleasant, took care with my things and when they thought they had scratched my floor (they didn't) they brought it to my attention. They moved me from a 3 story townhouse to a storage and apartment and they never complained or acted like it was a chore. I would use these guys anytime.

I usually do not ever take the time to write a review but I would not feel right if I did not give the credit thats due to this company. I have used multiple moving companies over the years and I've had my share of experiences; the good, the okay and the bad. I did not realize there was GREAT with a moving company from beginning to end. I inquired with a few companies and unfortunetly for my short notice, they were already booked up, which is understandable. I received a response from A&C movers and called to see if they could move me the next day. From the moment the guy answered the phone, I was intrigued by the great professional upbeat attitude and ease he tried to bring me with my frustation and panic of not finding a company for my next day move. He assured me he would make it happen. He couldn't gurantee me a time because they were fully booked but he told me if I could be patient with him he would squeeze me in. I was kind of hesitant with being "squeezed" in but I was running out of options. I thought they may just throw my stuff in the truck in a rush, something would break but throughout the day I received calls that I was not forgotten and they were finishing up a job. Around 7pm the driver Victor called me to let me know he was on the way. You would think after a day of moving he would be tired, or just like okay, we're on the way. However, he was just as upbeat as the guy I talked to the day before. He was nice and professional and let me know they were 30 minutes away. They got here and introduced themselves with a smile, assured me they would do their best to make this quick and easy. They took charge instead of looking lost or needing to be told what to do like I've had to direct movers in the past before. They were fast but careful. They're well mannered. They're professional and they got all my things loaded and unloaded fairly quickly. They asked me how I liked everything. They thanked me instead of me thanking them and shook my hand. In a day in age when people do not take the time to look you in the eye, shake a hand and communicate.. I was beyond impressed with a moving company that has so much customer service from beginning to end. HIGH FIVE A&C MOVERS!! I will be using the company in the future and telling all my friends about my experience!!

I was looking for a handyman to help me move a 1 BR apt on Jul 28, 2018. Brady responded to my request with his quote. Then, I sent him pics of the furniture to moved, and a week before the move day, we talked over telephone. At that time, given his amazing reviews, he was first choice as a handyman to help me move. As the move day drew closer, for a couple of days, Brady stopped responding. This seemed to be strange as he had been very fast in responding to my text messages beforehand. So, I thought he was no longer interested and started looking for someone else. Then, a day before the move, he responded that he had been out of town. Given his amazing past reviews, as I needed a second handyman to help me move, I hired him as well. On the move day, he arrived on time and moved things cautiously yet efficiently. Regrettably, in our conversation, while he had indicated he had a moving Dolley and moving blankets, on the move day, he did not bring them. All the same, throughout the move, our interactions were pleasant and very friendly. Overall, I appreciated his work ethic and punctuality. Had Brady not have stopped responding to the texts while traveling and brought the moving Dolley and moving blankets, I would have totally given him 5 stars. All the same, moving is always a stressful experience but I was glad to have Brady by my side.

Received a prompt response on service. It was a small job, moving dining table in a house, but we were still treated with professionalism of a larger job. They arrived within the stated arranged time and gave text message updates. They treated the home with respect to not damaging anything and were very courteous with other family members. I'll highly recommend and will be using them again in the future.

I am not an organizer. I also dreaded moving my things into storage. Tailoring Spaces assisted me with properly packing, and arranged my storage so nice and orderly. I recommend Tailoring Spaces to everyone who needs organization and moving help.💪😍

I recently moved from Missouri City to Pearland (10+ miles apart) and hired Betton Moving to do the job. I had never heard of the company before and at first was skeptical but decided to take a chance since they were available early Friday morning I also was quoted a great price versus the other big name moving companies who almost doubled the amount per hour that Betton Moving Co. offered. Mr Betton was very pleasant and professional he arrived with two other men at the allotted time slot, they were very efficient, disassembled beds, kitchen table tv stands, etc, they carefully packed up several large pieces of furniture and two large flat screens for us with plastic shrink wrap and blankets, very thorough, and fairly quick (4 hours). Would definitely recommend and use them in the future.

If anyone has ever moved in Houston in July, you will understand what a difficult task this was. Up and down stairs Precise movIng never stopped. Even when they were faced with an obstacle they kept trying new ideas. I can’t say enough about what a great job they did and on short notice. I will be recommending them to anyone I know and they most certainly can be trusted to handle moves both large and small.

Timely, Organized, and careful are the words I use to describe this company and the people they employ, which are not typically words I have used to describe moving companies in the past. I called Sugar Land Moving to move our office from Main St in Houston to McGowen St the the day before in a pinch and the movers showed up that following morning early and ready to work! Not a single item was damaged and everything was moved within the same day! I will absolutely be using them for all future moves to come!

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
