The move was from a studio condo to a single family home. Movers showed up on time and had us moved in 5 hrs. They were extremely efficient and extremely professional. They wrapped the furnature and provided closet boxes at no additional charge. I would highly recommend them for a move.

Very satisfied with A1 Movers! The movers handled our things with care and had all the equipment needed to make sure everything was moved safely and secured. Will be using this company again for any future moves and would recommend A1 Movers for anyone looking for quality moving service.

I hired two movers for my one bedroom apartment. The movers arrived within the provided two hour window and quickly got to work. They were very meticulous in handling my furniture and wrapped everything well. Because of this, the move took a little longer than I expected but I was happy to pay the extra money for their diligent work. (and it was 100 degrees the day of my move!) This company was a great value in their hourly rate compared to other quotes I received. I would hire this company again no questions asked. They were very professional, courteous and hard working!

Overall a great experience. The movers were about 45 minutes late, but were professional and everything was moved in great shape. Communication with Fred went really well and you couldn't beat the price. I'd recommend SkyRide for a smaller move, one bedroom or studio - thanks for your help!

I hired HaulProz to move from a 1BR basement apartment to a 1BR high rise in the same area. They provided a flat rate based on 3 hours labor, which seemed to be at the lower range of most quotes I received. While the service was not as comprehensive as what I have gotten when my work paid for a full-service move, they did a good job for a reasonable price. PROS: - The flat rate really sets them apart from the competition for me. The peace of mind of not worrying about movers running up the clock is worth it. - The movers had a professional attitude and arrived on time - No scratches / damage - They were true to their word about the flat fee. They ended up working 3.5 hours but just charged me for the original 3 hours - They agreed to haul away some junk for a very reasonable additional charge CONS: - I would not say they were especially quick or proactive in doing anything that was not explicitly spelled out. For instance I was hoping they would disassemble/reassemble our king-sized bed, but this would have taken a lot more time so we did it ourselves. - I was unable to contact the initial respondent via phone, which made it difficult to arrange at the last minute before a holiday weekend. I had to call someone else at the company to follow up on the thumbtack quote. - They were not familiar with the procedure for arranging parking in DC, and were unable to provide some of the vehicle details required for a police truck parking permit (fortunately parking was available on our street when they came) - The movers got lost on the way to the new apartment and did not call to ask directions. Eventually, I called them and found they were waiting in the parking lot. OVERALL: The move went fine and the flat rate was great, so I would hire them again. But next time I would take more time to spell out in greater detail what the exact requirements of the move are so that it is clear to all what is and is not included. Also be sure to think through all of the logistical steps that are required (parking, elevator, loading dock) etc.

I recommend NK Movers, after being cancelled on by another one here on Thumbtack, they showed me professionalism by sending me a contract and calling me every step of the way. We both had some issues with timing but we were able to work together and keep each other informed. In light of my building manager being irresponsible and insensitive, they kept their cool, and helped me remain stress-free, i feel that they cared about making this move as great as possible. Will definitely recommend!

The movers arrived ahead of time, and were walking up to ring my bell at exactly 4:30 p.m., the agreed upon time. They were careful with all items; arranged the items in the basement neatly, devised a clever way to move a bulky item through the basement entry instead down the stairs, and helped arrange other items for discard. They went to work at once and completed the job in 90 minutes. Absolutely recommend!!!

I had a wonderful experience with Moving With US. They were on time, very professional, and easy to work with. I really appreciated their flexibility - we ran into some snags with the loading dock and elevator at our destination, and they took it in stride and made it work. They were very timely and things got done quicker than we expected. The cost is slightly higher than other movers in the area (still nowhere near the highest end of the quotes I got), but it is more than worth it for the excellent quality of the work. We will definitely be contacting Moving With US for our next move.

I used Ground Force One to move our piano - My questions were answered almost immediately, it was the best price, the movers were on time, friendly, polite and efficient. The movers were concerned about tracking in wet feet and asked to have something to wipe their feet on. I would use them again, and highly recommend Ground Force One.

We thought our apartment was going to be an issue for the movers as we lived on the 4th floor and the building had no elevator. The movers from VKH Movers arrived on time and started packing. We weren't really concerned about that part though. When it came to carrying big furniture down 4 sets of stairs, we started to panic. But the movers seemed quite unmoved. They put their efforts together and handled the job quite efficiently. There was no delay anywhere and they managed to deliver on time as well. I don’t know how they do it but our move with them went perfectly.

Everyone wants the best and I am not an exception. When I was moving to an apartment in California from Maryland, I went out in search of an experienced, well blended and very promising relocation company. After doing a thorough research, I decided to go for Pick Up Movers LLC, which was by far more cost effective. I gave these people a call later that evening and after two minutes of talk, it was a done deal. They were to report very early in the morning on the agreed date. They did not breach that. They came and relocated me in the still morning weather. The entire process was so enjoyable.

It has been several months since I hired Bellhops for the job but I came back to leave my review because we were so impressed and happy with their service. They were very professional and were in contact with us through the whole move, updating us as they went. They completed our move from a third story apartment to a one story house in a little less time than they estimated (and we were only charged for the actual time they took) and nothing was damaged, which is a first for us in the many times we've moved. They were very considerate of handling all our items and took care to place boxes and furniture in the rooms we wanted them in, and were careful not to leave any mess in our new home. Would highly recommend them for any service!

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.
