We had a crew of 4 guys with 2 trucks. The crew was incredibly professional and handled our furniture with extreme care. We have had other move experiences where the furniture and boxes are being tossed around, not with Castle Movers. They wrapped all of our furniture with protective plastic and tore down and set up furniture as applicable in our new place. Highly recommend Castle Movers!

Andrew and his crew picked up my organ earlier than expected and waited for us to get home from the movies. They were affordable and took very good care of my organ throughout the pickup and delivery. They were friendly and professional and very affordable compared to other movers who weren't specialized in piano/organ moving. I would hire them again if I ever need to move my organ!

Red Carpet Movers saved our bacon. I was feeling very uncertain about a mover we hired and remembered how nice Elijah and his wife sounded on the phone and read previous reviews of them and called them back to hire them at the very last minute. They are professional, efficient, helpful, and personable. If you need to move these people are the ones to call.

Really was impressed but the quality and professionalism of Theo and his crew. I had a scheduling mess up and they were able to get me moved even with a 3day delay. They responded to all of my messaging in a timely manner. On the day of the move they actually called me 3 hrs early to get jump on my job. From the time they arrived until finish they were great and for the cost you won’t find better movers. Best moving value in DFW. I’ve already recommend and referred them to a friend. Thank you “Extra Set of Hands”

Service was great but I was extremely disappointed to hear that the movers made about 25-30% of the total amount I was billed and that Bellhops takes the remaining 70-75% when all the movers are essentially gig economy workers (similar to Uber drivers). They should absolutely be taking home a higher percentage. It's outrageous.

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!

Matthew was very courteous and professional. He handled my things like they were his own. I had only a small moving job, but unlike other movers, he worked with me to do my small job at a reasonable price. If you need a mover for any size job, you won't be disappointed in NorthernStar Moving.

The two man crew came to disassemble my ikea wardrobe for a big move. I was worried since Ikea does not make my Pax Birkeland wardrobe anymore. The two man crew was timely, cared about my needs surrounding the desire to make it easy on the other end. They SOOO knew what they were doing. Finished timely and with everything organized for pack up and reassembly. Thank you so much!

Couldn't have got any luckier! Booked them the morning of my move last minute and Charlie was so pleasant on the phone. He was very reassuring and comforting and spoke highly of his movers. He couldn't have been more right. CJ and Destin showed up and were nothing but AMAZING. They were in such high spirits and made the experience so much fun and calm. They asked if there was anything else I needed and helped move some items to the trash. They loaded and packed my storage unit with such intelligence and common sense. They were extremely careful with everything and made sure all my furniture was wrapped and moved with such care. There was a moment when I was walking back in the house and CJ was coming down the two step entrance to my door with a dolly with stacked boxes of kitchen items and I stood there and watch him glide those boxes down the steps like Moses departing the red seas. Biggest turn on ever ... CJ and Destin are extremely fit and just the grace of how they handled everything, ladies, doesn't get better than that. They made me laugh all night and their personalities were the best part. They had done 4 moves before me and from the minute they showed up until they left, they gave me nothing but smiles. Very proud and humble gentlemen. I can't wait until my move, you guys are the best!

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!!

We had hired 2 movers from another source , but they sent a text at 9:30 the night before stating they couldn’t make it because they were too busy. We only had that next day to move. I was up at 3:00 am trying to figure out how to hire a mover on short notice. I remembered about the thumbtack app. I sent my info and received options for 4 local movers immediately. I responded to 3 and Samuel texted me back at 6 am! Yahoo! He was working in our area that morning. He sent me his phone number and we decided on a time. He was even able to come earlier. He and his associate were very nice. They did a good job. They went the extra mile to help us. They carefully packed our uhaul which we were traveling with that same afternoon. We are very happy we chose this company, and they had the best rate. I might add we moved from a one bedroom apartment and the job took about 2 1/2 hours. We had no stairs and we had the use of a residential elevator and a nice loading area which helped the movers. I really liked using the thumbtack app. Thumbtack saved the day.

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.
