The men that arrived to do my move were sincere, hard working and did a good job, however they did arrive an hour late. As a result, the owner of the company David came to my residence personally to ensure that we were being well taken care of and provided a discount. He was so very much attentive and warm! I would definitely use this company again. Communicating with the owner David was a great experience. He always responded within minutes of contacting me, which is rare for moving companies.

I have never used a moving company before and now that I have I will not be moving myself again. The Name Your Price Movers provided two movers who worked very hard. They came and made quick work of our one bedroom apartment. Overall, they took great care of all of our belongings. They wrapped all the furniture, minus the sofa, in moving blankets in order to protect them in transit. We did not have a TV box and they very securely wrapped the TV for only $25. For several of our furniture pieces they took them completely apart. They came prepared to do the breakdown of all the items and required no tools from me. The move did take much longer than I was originally quoted. We don't have much stuff and we only had one end of the move that had a one story walk up, but it took over 5 hours. I had been quoted 3 hours. This said they did work so hard and took great care, so I was not annoyed by the extra time and related charge. Note if you pay in cash you get discount. I didn't know that ahead of time and thus was charged a percentage for using a credit card.

I don't usually cheer on Thumbtack and I'm leery of people that have nothing in their reviews but 5-stars or 1-star, but these guys are worth some serious recommendation. I've had some bad experiences with moving companies in the past, the usual stuff - broken furniture, surly attitudes, etc. I figured it was par for the course. A1 sent us a quote and assumed that even some negative reviews these guys must be halfway decent. My expectations were exceeded. The whole contract was negotiated in email, including a 5% discount for doing the move on a Monday. All emails were responded to super fast and contracts all passed back and forth as attachments. Wow, a moving company that "gets" the modern communication age, thank you! They confirmed a few days before and called on the way, too. It's amazing how your first contact impression with a company can make a big difference. LaShawn, who fielded all my emails, was awesome. My place was is up in Darnestown and most people get lost, but the guys showed up between 9AM and 10AM right when scheduled. I had scheduled three guys and they had a fourth at no charge. The first thing they did was have everyone introduce themselves, very professional and a nice start. We did a walk-through and I pointed out everything that had to go, I had several expensive pieces from back home and everything I requested (wrap this well, etc, etc) was answered with a cheerful "no problem!" They cleaned out my place in 6 hours, everything was well wrapped and stacked, they were extremely conscious of the walls and doors, not a nick or anything anywhere. It was pretty amazing how fast it went and the guys have obviously been working together for a long time and work well as a team. At my destination, despite an elevator, they were organized and they had everything sorted in no time. I had labeled boxes (bath, bed, kitchen, garage, etc) and everything was put where it should be, and again, no walls or door jams were hurt in the process. When they stacked, they did so in a sensible way and kept halls clear. I had requested 12 wardrobe boxes, so I assumed that they would bring some for me to start shoving my hanging clothes into. Instead they just said "tell us what you want moved" and they did everything, including putting all the clothes into wardrobe boxes, and putting all the clothes in my closets at the destination. It's little touches like that you really appreciate on move day. The whole time the entire crew was upbeat and chipper. I was told that the crews at A1 are cherry-picked from elsewhere, they hire the best guys from other companies. I absolutely believe it. I kicked down $140 in tips for the guys, I could not have been happier. They even take credit cards, so you can get the miles. Moving is never fun, or cheap, but these guys totally restored my faith that they are good companies out there and I would never take my business (or my recommendation) elsewhere. A1 Movers rocks.

The team was absolutely great and El who is the manager at Zebna is very responsive & accomodating. Nick and Vladimir helped move us over two days and worked through several issues with my apartments loading dock area. They are reasonably priced and I would highly recommend their service for your moving needs. They even gave us a discount when we needed them on the 2nd day.

The men were early to the job and did the work in half the time I expected. When my couch wouldn't fit through the doorway, they were quick thinking and managed to successfully remove and reassemble the legs. They charged me a fraction of the price that any other moving company quoted. I'd recommend them to anyone.

Fred was very communicative prior to the move, answered all my questions, and even agreed at the last minute to add another person and a bigger truck. His movers worked hard and tried to take care while moving our stuff, even making sure to ask us which items we valued most, so as to be extra careful with them. They were 45 minutes late, but we weren't charged for that time- and Fred even gave us a 30 min discount because of that. Moving is stressful and tough, but with SkyRide we had one less thing to worry about.

This company deserves overall a Zero! I hired them to help me move my 1 bedroom apartment from MD to DC. I should have cancelled it from the very beginning when they wanted to charge me extra money for using my credit card vs cash!!?? Moving day: The time for arrival was set for 4 pm. The owner kept on postponing the arrival time with various stories why they were being late. I told them we needed to be at my building by 8pm as that was the end of the moving in time window and the building loading dock was closing at that time. I send several texts and tried calling multiple times to the company. They arrived close to 7 pm. WE arrived at my building late. I had to waste my time looking for a security guard who was kind enough to cooperate with us and let us use another loading dock which was a real hike to my entrance ( another extra hour wasted) . My plants were broken and I feared other items did too. And I was right. I demanded discount for the service and to be also reimbursed for the broken items. we negotiated discount and as I was tired and frustrated i agreed to 15% off. As for the reimbursement, I was told to send them all the photos of broken items and estimated cost. I did. Even after a number of emails and phone calls and almost 2 and a half months after the service, I have not been reimbursed yet. NEVER USE THIS COMPANY. BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE

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.

On a 1-10 scale with 10 a perfect score, Ground Force One Moving is an 11! Richard and his partner were professional, courteous, punctual, and performed flawlessly. They were hired to pick up and return a 350 lb. elliptical machine to a store. They protected the floor with blankets, carefully avoided hitting doorways, and placed it where the store manager requested. With confidence, I highly recommend this family owned and operated moving business for all your moving needs, small or large.

David and his colleague were great! They arrived within the time window discussed and tackled a VERY tricky job of moving a 250lb wine fridge from the living room through our small kitchen, and down a full flight of stairs to the basement. It was a SERIOUS operation and the Komplete Trucking crew performed admirably. I'm glad we hired them and I will be giving them more business in the future for sure!

VKH Movers helped me move my one bedroom apartment from Alexandria, VA to Navy Yard in DC. Vlad was very professional and always texted me back within minutes. The movers showed up right on time and got to work. Everyone had a very good work ethic. No complaining or wasting time. In fact, I trusted them enough for a second job -- moving a couch that I bought on Craigslist from Fairfax to my new apartment in DC. I appreciated the 10% discount for using them a second time. Their rates were competitive -- they estimated three hours for my move and that's exactly how long it took door to door. I didn't get hit with any extra charges. I used the extra cash to tip the movers. I would recommend VKH for any type of move - large or small.

Gary and his team worked tirelessly to ensure that our move went smoothly. All of our belongings made it to GA from VA without any issues. When we discovered that we needed more things to go into storage, he made a second trip even though they were officially finished moving us. I have recommended GNG to my friends in the DMV who may need for his services. My family is very pleased.

I had a last minute emergency at work and needed to move an item from one office building to the other as to not hold up a deal. I contacted all the well known companies (jk moving, collegehunks, etc.). Everyone was booked. I came on here and Ken was very responsive. Sent the addresses, he arrived within an hour of the original request. The item was transported quickly and free of damage. He was also extremely courteous and understanding. I could only choose 3 highlights, but I was satisfied across the board. I would certainly recommend his services and use him again in the future. Thank you Ken.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
