Working with Corey Barnes and the Cordobe Solutions crew was a very positive experience for me. At first I had my doubts and this was my 2nd attempt at scheduling a move from my apartment. The first move was a complete mishap. Mr. Barnes made everything right for the 2nd attempt taking a discount off the entire job! I was really impressed with that as well. Then the day of the job the movers were at my apartment before the scheduled time, they were strategic in the movement of all my packed boxes. They were very respectful and considerate of my precious fragile items and all of my pieces of furniture. Brandon kept reassuring me as the client that this was an easy job and that he was carefully monitoring what needed to be done to make the move successful. I quickly booked this company for my final furniture move and cancelled the other movers I had scheduled. I would honestly recommend them for future moving jobs to my friends and colleagues.

The move went well overall although the movers were 45 minutes late arriving, I'm assuming because they came from another part of town. They handled my furniture with great care and set everything up.

I recently moved to a new apartment. The move was from a second floor apartment to a third floor apartment. I moved less than a mile down the road. The move took about an hour. The movers were very professional. They wrapped the couches and furniture. I would definitely use them again. It was a great value for the size of the move.

I hired Red Carpet movers, Elijah and his crew arrived on time, evaluated the entire house of furniture and boxes, then liked a well oiled machine, two of them started moving boxes. The other guys were busy padding and wrapping the furniture. Within two hours, all of the house belongings were loaded on his enclosed hauling trailer. I was in awe of the teamwork and professionalism that Elijah and his guys showed. They were courteous, polite and respectful. Within a short timespan of four and a half hours, Elijah and his crew had my furniture in my new home, all of them had their company logo on, had asked where i wanted each piece of furniture, cleaned up all of the wrapping material and made sure that there was nothing more that i needed them to do. If you are looking for a company to move you, call Elijah at Red Carpet Movers, they are the best of the best. Thank you Elijah, what a great experience.

This was going to originally be a one-star rating. I scheduled the movers between 8-9 am. The driver called me at 9:30 and said he was 20-25 minutes out. At 11, the movers were still not at our apartment and I called them and their hub, but got no answer. at 11:30, they called and said they had to finish up another job and I should have received a call from dispatch, but she must have forgotten to call us. They eventually got to our place at around noon. So, despite the three hour delay, the movers hauled butt and got everything completed in three hours and apologized profusely for the earlier miscommunication. We moved from a two story, two-bedroom town home to an upper-story three bedroom apartment. The two movers were quick, hard-working, professional and respectful. I would be willing to hire them again and hope that the delayed arrival time/miscommunication thing was a one-time only affair.

Verified review

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!

I can’t say enough good things about Guidance Moving. These guys showed up 5 minutes early for our move (a literal first for us when working with movers) and worked hard and fast. They took extra care and wrapped all of our furniture with blankets, absolutely nothing was damaged or scratched. They even took apart and put together our kids swing set, and they did it all in the blazing 100 degree heat! We’ve moved many times, and these guys are the best movers we’ve ever hired. Highly recommend!

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.
