Great experience! The movers were more than accommodating, and it made moving as easy as it could possibly be. They were able to pack up the truck and move my items from Arlington to Brooklyn very fast. I will definitely recommend Ali and his company to any of my friends in the DC area.

I had to move a studio apartment from one building to another within half a mile of each other. I was receiving incredibly high quotes from all of the movers I spoke with as my move was August 1st (a prime moving time). Smart Moving had the cheapest quote, and did an amazing job! The two gentlemen that helped me were so patient, kind, and efficient. Both of my buildings' loading docks proved troublesome, and my movers worked around the difficulties with smiles. Truly - these men were wonderful. The loading dock in the second building had wet and dirty floors, and my movers were so gracious as to even take off their shoes so they wouldn't stain my new carpet! This is an honest company and they work hard to make sure the customer is satisfied. It was an incredibly easy booking process and they were able to accommodate me completely. I highly recommend Smart Moving!!

We had a 3 man team and you could tell they are all professionals. They worked quickly with out scratching my walls or damaging my furniture. They also used hardwood floor runners and carpet protection to ensure our floors stay in a like new state. To my surprise the job was done in under the estimated time for completion which is always good when tring to save money. A-1 Movers has my recommendation as a quailty moving service.

These guys are the best. Real pros, listened to my requirements, punctual, inexpensive but not cheap and most importantly they get the job done. Please hire them, you will not regret it! I can’t stress enough how good they are. As I never have cash it would have been more convenient for me to pay using Venmo for example (just saw another comment on this), but on the other hand I totally understand it: cash is easy and straightforward.

We found Great Nation on Thumbtack, and Rose was our moving consultant and she facilitated a long distance move with a complete package for us. She was extremely communicative, efficient, respectful and affordable. The moving team arrived early, thoroughly wrapped all of our items and furniture and delivered them on time to our new house in a different state. Everyone was incredibly nice throughout the whole process and extremely hard working. We would use him again in a heartbeat and have already recommended Rose, and Great Nation to multiple friends looking to move in the DC area. Seriously could not have made the moving experience more low stress. Thank you so much, Kevin & Family

I moved from a studio to a bedroom in a house. This was a low cost and fairly smooth move. Movers were young and a bit inexperienced. They did not use shrink wrap or any protection on my furniture. They were, however, very hard working and willing to take direction. Nice people. The owner was responsive and kind. Would recommend to someone who does not have a ton of stuff and is looking for a cheap option.

My experience was very positive. Brandon did a great job assembling my IKEA sleeper sofa. He showed me how it worked and he disposed of all the packing materials. Plus, his bid was much more affordable that some of the other Thumbtack vendors. I would definitely use 1st Home Professional for future jobs. Highly recommended.

The "job" was the unloading of a 26' truck filled to overflowing w/ an unbelievable amount of very irritating small, accent, oddly shaped stuff- in addition to all the furniture. They had to use the freight elevator to the 5th floor from the loading dock of a highly and rigidly ruled/ enforced condo association . Even w/ 3 guys it took them 4-5 hrs in some rough heat and humidity , yet there was not one moment when they were anything BUT professional, accommodating, cheerful and hardworking. I couldn't believe how sweet these guys were! Terrence has a great team and a great attitude and an abundance of genuine patience for someone who surely must have seemed demented w/ all the stress and frustration brought on by this move. Because so many dreadful things went so terribly wrong on the Atlanta end of the move, I guess I expected the worst once I got to Arlington. Boy, was I wrong. I never should have worried. Pro Movers couldn't possibly be more highly recommended. It was like watching 3 adorable bumble bees, always smiling, always moving, always reassuring me that it was alright :"We can move that dresser again; we can take that back down to your storage; it's ok- we'll take this to the other BR.." Really, I just wish I could have kept them here for the next week or two! I need more thumbs- 2 thumbs up doesn't do them justice. Oh- and the price : WAY too cheap. Terrence should have charged me 3 times over what he did , and if I ever come out of the hole from the astronomical cost of this move, I'm going to hunt him down and send him and his crew to Disneyland. Hip, hip hooray for these guys, and thank God that they were the ones I chose . HIRE THEM- you will not be disappointed on any level, trust me. Marsha B.

Mario helped me out when I had no hope. My movers that I had hired bailed on me and I was stuck and had to find a new moving company within 2 hours. This is when I hired Mario. He was professional, came to the rescue as soon as he could and saved the day. I would hire him and his company time and time again. So thankful to them for making such a crappy day, a huge success.

Found Tim on thumtack. After getting appointment set, I had to leave town for a couple of weeks. That did not effect Tim's stride, He stayed in touch letting me know he was ready when I was. He assisted us in finding a truck at a reasonable price. On the day he was early and I was late, again it did not break his stride. We were moving a 10x15 storage unit of loosely stacked articles to a 10x10 unit at a more reasonably priced storage facility. Again that did not brake his stride. He with one helper, that he left in his dust at getting the stuff stacked. He stacked the boxes tight and there was know problem getting the articles in the unit. He treats your articles as his. Tim is personable, professional, efficient and affordable. In fact at this time I have scheduled him to take the boxes out of the unit for me to look for some important papers and later in the day return and replace it in the unit. I trust Tim with all my moving needs. He also does several other jobs including drywall and furniture assembling. Thanks to Tim, be using you again. If you don't use Time for you needed services, big mistake.

These guys were very professional and hard working. My move was flawless. Larry I want to thank you so much for leading your team through the whole process. You kept those guys on track and that was not unnoticed. Greg I can't thank you enough for being there from beginning to end. You did exactly what you promised you would do....you got me moved no matter how long or difficult. You are a man of your word and that's important to me. To the rest of your team, thank you so much for working so hard to finish the job. You guys were awesome! I will refer Relocation Solutions to all my family and friends when in need of a moving company. I'm moving again in 18 months, there is no question about it, Relocation Solutions is the moving company I will be calling. I wish you all the best and will definitely be in touch soon.

Professional and honest company. I ordered full packing service. I didn't have time to pack, so Alex and Nick did everything for me. All my belongings came to New York intact without even single scratch. They really made my last minute move completely stress free and quick. I will recommend Moving With US if you looking for safe, reliable and affordable moving company!

Adrian and his team mate Brad were excellent with their service. They moved my 1 bed room apartment to a town home in the space of 3 hours. Brad was able to hold a 8 foot sofa all by himself as both of them moved it through the gallery of our apartment on the 2nd floor. They were really fast with their moving and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Very punctual and excellent with communication :)

I can't say enough good things about Gary. I had a long distance move of a studio apartment's worth of furniture, clothes, bed, etc. and it went so smoothly. Gary worked around my schedule, was very professional (had all necessary packing supplies), and got me all of my things to my new home in the condition they left! The value that Gary provide's against bigger, long-distance moving companies is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone looking for movers. I am completely satisfied with GNG's work.

Cliff and his partner at CS Moving are easy to work with, prompt and very respectful of the environment they work in, both where i picked up my furniture, and when i dropped it off at my house. It was one of the best moving experiences i have had. So glad i chose them over moving my furniture with family and friends! I would recommend them to anyone planning s move. Neat, clean, prompt and friendly. You won't be disappointed.

Terrence and his team were great. Arrived early and ended up bringing 3 extra men to help (had 6 instead of 3 men) for the same agreed upon rate. Not sure that happens every time, but shows that T&K Moving go above and beyond as needed. Brought their own booties and floor protectors. His crew was courteous and Terrence was very nice to work with. Responsive all the way up to service. We are actually moving them again next weekend for my boyfriend's move. Highly recommend.

Excellent company!!! Got their name from a friend of a friend, and used Brothers Moving to move me last month. Quote was completely fair, the workmen were professional, and Sam provided sound guidance pre-move to make sure there were not any issues. Am so thrilled and would recommend them to anybody!!!

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
