Wilson and his assistant (sorry I forgot his name) were AWESOME! I talked to a few movers before I choose Wilson. I choose to call Wilson for his price, but I choose him to move my items for his mannerisms and character. It's intimidating to call strangers to move you and feel safe. Chain Reaction Disaster... Wilson Brooks... very safe, very efficient, very polite. Will use him again and share his service with others. Thank you Wilson and assistant!

I have moved around a lot as a military kid and even when I was a young professional. My experience with 1st Choice Moving & Storage was 100% positive. We we sold our house and decided last minute to utilize professional movers. Last minute as in we called Bruce the day before we needed movers. Bruce was great and accommodating on a Sunday and made sure we were scheduled for the next day. The moving team came within the window Bruce provided us. The lead was Alex McKinnon and I couldn't possibly come up with enough compliments for his work ethic. It was obvious that he has a depth of knowledge in regards to moving items and setting up efficient moving chain. He lead the team very well and did not try to eat time like some movers do. He kept me informed at all times and had answers for all of my questions. I would definitely recommend his expertise on any moving team and we plan to move in a few months and would not use 1st Choice Moving & Storage without him. Alex's associate Ronnie Rush was utilized heavily in the big furniture moves in regards to wrapping furniture and transporting items to the truck. Ronnie was extremely efficient and I definitely saw the value he brought to the moving team. He appeared to have the same knowledge as Alex in regards to moving, which brought immediately value to the team. The third associate was Miguel Prada. Miguel was vital in the fact that all moves are about volumn. While Alex and Ronnie worried about the bigger items, Miguel moved all of the items very quickly, which made me feel like there was no downtime in the moving process. Overall, the team was extremely efficient compared to teams I've utilized before and I have moved probably 18 times in my entire life. I really appreciated that the entire team was respectful and friend to my wife and I. They made what was a very daunting task enjoyable. I would want the SAME exact team for our next move. I feel bad that we didn't provide pizza/sandwiches but next time there will DEFINITELY be a few pizzas at the end of our next move. Great guys and great company!!!

I didn't truly appreciate how awesome these guys are until my boyfriend moved in a week later using different movers. These guys wrapped and handled everything with as much care as if they were moving their own things.

Don’t Miss A Golden Opportunity: I moved a family of 6 locally twice in 2017 and the first time I used a national company and had a terrible experience. These guys are professional, courteous, and willing to go the extra mile with a smile on their face. Pass up the large companies and choose Movers of Houston!!

Jonathan is a Fab. There was some problem with one of the trucks and he called a day before and informed me that there may be some delays. When i requested him to do it before, he has obliged it and send the crew at 06:00 AM in the morning. I had never seen such a wonderful service from any of the movers. Very respectful crew and they took care of the items very well. I will recommend to every one. This is the first time i took some time to review some one.

Experience was outstanding. Movers showed up on time and ready to work. They took excellent care of my belongings. Price was what I was quoted. I needed help with cleaning my place when I moved out. They also had a cleaning crew that came out and did an outstanding job. Communication was great with this company. Will definitely use them again!

With all of the news stories about movers ripping people off, I was concerned about finding a moving company to move a 1 bedroom apartment from Houston to Memohis. A-Star movers came on time, they were clean and courteous and everything was moved. Their bid was the cheapest and without surprises. What was most amazing was they picked up the furniture and delivered it the next day! I'm very pleased and would highly recommend them for a local or out of state move.

They were pretty good... They came in and took care of everything after my previous movers stood me up the day before Because they apparently had gotten stuck on an out of town move... The only complaint I have is they didn't put my bed back together properly so my mattress caved in... I pu it together the best I could... But its still not 100% correct... But over all they did a good move...

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 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.
