Excellent! I asked for two movers and a truck for 2:00 PM. They arrived at 2:00, no delay. They were very professional and polite. A third mover joined the team after half an hour and more importantly they were load the truck very quick. I expected for at least 4 hours of work (their estimate email mentioned 5 hours) but they finished the job nicely in 3 hours and half. No scratch! So different from my previous experience with moving companies where they spend 6 hours for a really 3-4 hour work.

Due to my career, I have lived in many places in the United States with all the joys of moving and having to deal with the large coast to coast moving companies. I have never had a move in 20 years that did not consist of something lost and/or something damaged. I am not only pleased to say, but delighted to share, that all changed today! With my last minute decision to move locally, I contacted Castle Movers at the very last moment. I was pleasantly surprised to find their willingness to accommodate and with sufficient equipment and manpower on such short notice. The move went without a hitch and was performed by a level of courtesy and professionalism that I have never seen before on any move. Their level of professionalism was only matched by their level of efficiency. The men knew how to work hard, they knew how to work smart, and they completed the move 3-4 hours sooner than I would have thought possible. Once the move was completed, the crew foreman asked me to inspect each room with him, we completed the necessary paperwork very expeditiously, and when the crew left, each shook my hand and welcomed me to my new home. A truly enjoyable experience and a first of its kind for me! If I move a piece of furniture ever again, Castle Movers will be my first call!!

There was a slight miscommunication with logistics of meeting up as my number was given incorrectly to the moving team. Also, the agreement and quote was that there would be a 3 man moving team, but only 2 men showed up for the move. The two gentlemen that I was fortunate enough to have help me with my move were extremely effective, hard working, and from my historical experience with other moving companies, they replaced the work easily that would have been provided by a 3rd man. I had no hidden fees and everything went according as planned. I am 80% sure I would recommend this moving company to a friend, but I am 110% sure I would recommend the specific movers I was fortunate enough to have help me through my move.

We are an old senior couple. My wife decided to do some remodeling and we needed to get some furniture out of the house fairly quickly. A friend of mine previously used Thumbtack to find a company to clean his office. So I decided to use Thumbtack to help us find a reasonably priced moving company. My whole experience with Expert Moving was excellent. My first contact with the company in setting up my appointment left me extremely happy. Maurissa assisted me in booking and re-scheduling my services on short notice. They accommodated my changes without a hassle. What a relief! I had contacted several moving companies prior, but selected this one because of their thorough explanation of services and positive attitude during my last minute changes. Our experience with the crew members on moving day was fantastic to say the least. The gentlemen who moved our furniture were kind, courteous and easy to work with. They worked like professionals as were quick, and careful with our furniture. I dreaded moving, but the guys brought the energy and enthusiasm to make a laborious task, easy and worry free. We have a heavy bedroom set that is not easy to move but they moved it with ease. Glad we had some strong manpower. Everything was done well and very professionally by them. My wife has an antique china cabinet and heavy glass candle holders and other antiques.The movers crated our very fragile 90 pound glass statues, also double wrapped my china cabinet and were very careful moving it. They belonged to my grandmother, they are irreplaceable. They did a AMAZING job and went above and beyond for us.The 3 man crew moved and treated each piece like it was their personal furniture. The movers wrapped my delicate items with special protection crating, they called it, in order to keep them safe. I had several antique pieces that were family heirlooms. While not valuable to anyone but me, they were handled with extra care. Victor, Melvin, and Joshua were the hardest workers we have the pleasure to work with. They are gold star employees!!!..such a great attitudes, they really care about the job that they do. We are grateful for the hard-working team that we got, especially the crew leader Victor. I believe he should be immediately promoted due to his leadership and customer service excellence, Victor represents the type of professionalism that is too rare to see these days. Thank you guys again for a wonderful experience. Once we are done with the remodel, I will be calling them again to move us back. I will be asking for the same crew.

I have had my fair share of horrible moving experiences and expected nothing less than that when I hired Big Tex Movers to move me from Burleson to downtown Dallas TX. Imagine how pleasantly surprised I was from the moment I started speaking with the owner, Andy, via Thumbtack. He was extremely professional, pleasant, and straight forward. It seemed too good to be true! Then when my movers arrived, I met Patrick and Christopher and they did an amazing job! They were hustling the entire time. Running from the truck to the pick up, never stopping, never sluggish. They were well groomed, polite and very kind. They took extra care of my belongings, like they belonged to them. These hard working gentleman did this for 5 hours straight! None of my furniture or belongings were damaged and there were no hidden fees. What I was quoted by Andy was exactly what I paid. They charged by the minute! That is unheard of in their industry. I highly recommend this moving company if you're in need of an honest, hard-working moving company. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to everyone in the Dallas area. Thank you so much Andy, Patrick and Christopher!!! Y'all made my move so easy! A++++++++++++++++++

I HIGHLY recommend using Universal Movers!!! They are by far the best moving company I have ever used. The owner is kind, thorough, and truly wants to make the move as easy and smooth as possible. I had a last minute request for a day of move and our mover, CJ, made it on time and past his usual hours to accommodate me. CJ was upbeat, positive, quick, and SO helpful. My sisters and I will always use Universal Movers for all of our moves!!

These guys did a great job on very short notice. I couldn’t be at the property, but without my asking they started sending photos of their progress. This was voluntary accountability that made me feel comfortable with their work. I could see by photos they were the right people for the very fast job I needed on a property with a new tenant moving in with in hours. They were punctual, professional and I will hire them again!

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.
