Great fast service! They stayed in contact every step of the way. They gave me a run down of how the moving process would go and didn't try to overcharge me on labor like most movers will do. So far they are a good reliable bunch of guys that I will stick with for now as they have been very helpful and reliable in getting the work done right the first time with no problems..

First time hiring a moving service, knowing horror stories from friends about broken keepsakrd and mirrors, I was worried. WM Pro Movers responded to my inquiry quickly, broke down everything I needed to know, and answered a couple questions I didn't know I had. They were open to adjusted times as needed and offered help picking up a washer/dryer set, I couldn't figure out to get myself. They all made a concerted effort to wrap and secure anything that could be scratched/dinged/broken. They arrived promptly, and worked hard to get everything the way we wanted. (And I know I'm not the easiest to work with) They were all friendly, and helpful, and very knowledgeable. Next time I move, these are the guys im calling.

Devin and Juan did an excellent job moving me out of my apartment. It was a challenge to get from my apartment to the elevator, but they handled it greatly. They were efficient but careful with my things. They answered all my questions and loaded everything quickly and carefully and unloaded everything even faster. I was very impressed with Night & Day and will definitely be choosing them for my next move! Great service with Alix; I highly recommend!

I needed same day help moving a 300lb wine fridge from Costco to a storage unit. Within 5 minutes of my submission on Thumbtack, we had scheduled a pickup time. They were right on time, got the fridge loaded and dropped off in about an hour (which included a 15min wait on me at the storage unit). I would definitely recommend them for your smaller moves/extra set of hands in moving large (or small) items!

Spotted Frog movers were very professional. All of this service came at a reasonable price. They were on time and took meticulous care of my furniture and my floors. They were able to take everything in one truck load because they carefully and thoughtfully packed the truck. Likewise, they made sure everything fit into my storage unit without damaging other items. It started raining during the unloading the they made sure to wipe anything that got wet. They brought tools and took apartment beds that needed to be disassembled, and they reassembled one at our destination. They were very considerate- Jason checked the weather and noticed that it was predicted to rain heavily on our moving day, so he called to suggest switching the date.

I had heavy furniture and multiple heavy boxes to get moved from a 3rd story apt. to a 2nd story apt. Rocky and Joe worked cheerfully and steadily, getting the job done very quickly. They had already completed a challenging move before mine. This earlier move impacted their start time with me, but they called me throughout and made sure I was okay with the slight delay. It was no problem. Very communicative and responsible. They maintained a friendly, professional demeanor despite the physical labor and high humidity that afternoon. Joe had a long drive ahead of him back to college and an exam to study for the next day, but he worked hard and gave me the impression that had I asked him to stay on longer, he would have done so willingly. I couldn't have asked for a better team. Thank you, Rocky and Joe!

Marcel Witter was very professional and courteous. He took great care with our furniture. He and his assistant were able to get the furniture up a tight stairwell without any damage whatsoever. We will definitely hire Marcel again for our moving and transport needs. In fact, we will be hiring him again soon to clear some things out of our garage. Thank you, Marcel!

I just want to make sure everyone out there knows that this company is the best company I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I am almost 60 and I have moved about 30 times in my life. In all those moves, I was never as pleased and completely satisfied with a moving company as I am with Right Choice Moving. Caleb and his team treated my moving items as if they owned them. They took great care in wrapping and protecting, and moving an extremely heavy item up 40 stairs with a very sharp turn between floors. Not only did they move quickly and carefully, they stayed to make sure I was satisfied and did not rush me at all. They set up everything and made sure all was working properly too! They are clean, professional, punctual, polite and easy to communicate with on what you want, and they find the way to perfectly accomplish your moving wishes. Above All, Their Prices are very affordable and don't be fooled just because they will have better prices than anyone else out there --- their expert performance cannot be beat and is worth much, much more than they charge. I highly recommend them and expect they will expand quickly as they will be swamped by just my family and friends alone! Better book now while you can! Great job Caleb!!! Awesome Service!!!

This team worked hard, worked well and worked fast. I moved into a house and hated the color of the walls. I decided to repaint the entire house but knew that there were parts of the process that I would have to get a professional to complete. When Marco and his team came to paint the staircase, it was clear to me that I was in over my head and they gave me a quote to paint the entire house. The price was reasonable so I accepted. After seeing the first coat, I was immediately elated. The color looked great and the quality of the work was incredible. Their crew was finished in 2 days with a two-level house. They took great care to protect the floors, trim and other areas of the house. I highly recommend them and would definitely use their services again.

This company might be new but Let's Move It understands the meaning of "respect for property". They handle all of your items as if their own, and wouldn't let it get damaged. I highly recommend this company as a primary choice to aid you with any moving necessary in the future. I am 100% thankful and glad I contacted this company.

Daniel was great! Not only was he professional and persistent with obstacles that UT Austin West Campus apartments presented, but he was also patient with me trying to coordinate moving in 2 college kids at the same time! He even went with me to the hardware store to buy screws and bolts for a TV mount! You can't go wrong!

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.
