All expectations were met - on time arrival, estimation of time for move, nothing damaged, and billed at agreed rates. The only issue was with the payment receipt. We paid with a company credit card and the movers did not have the equipment to take the payment so we couldn't get a printed receipt. They did give us a hand written receipt. We would definitely use this company again and refer others to them.

Move was smooth, but long day. The 3 guys were great and very courteous. They worked very hard, didn't scratch or break anything . They showed up on time, worked all day, brought lots of extra packing materials, which I didn't need much, except clothes hanger boxes. Pretty much everything was ready to go,all boxes had been packed, they just wrapped and protected furniture to load on the truck. Place everything in the new house in the correct rooms, unwrapped the furniture. For a small to medium size moving company, price was good and competitive. Last local move I used a much larger company paid more and had 4 men verses 3 men and NYP Movers did a much better job than the larger moving company. Not any damage to any items of mine nor the houses I moved from and into. Would use them again when I will need to move again in the next couple of years.

Excellent movers! The movers showed up right on time and were very pleasant and professional. They were incredibly careful, yet fast, when packing up all of our items. They asked us exactly where each piece of furniture or box should go in our new apartment, and even helped us set up the bed frame. These guys are professionals at what they do. We were so pleased with our move!

Smart Moving helped us move some large and heavy equipment from Alexandria to D.C. They did a great job for a very reasonable price. They showed up on time, brought enough staff and tools and were very careful when moving the equipment. Items arrived in great condition, no dents or scratches. I highly recommend Smart Moving for your moving needs.

A-1 Movers are the best movers I have ever used. They arrived earlier than expected, went right to work, protected my furniture beautifully, including my priceless grandfather clock. They moved me under the most horrendous circumstance; we arrived at my new place and the tenants were not finished moving out as promised. We had to leave and come back 1 1/2 hrs. later when we could start moving in. The garage was filled from ceiling to floor with the tenants belongings and so the movers had to use stairs up to the front door. They did it without complaining as well as comforting me as I was crying hysterically over the horrendous circumstances. We had to sweep each room before putting in furniture and they helped me with that. I am happy with the price of the move; Darrell and his crew were efficient and helpful as they moved in my furniture; and not only that, Darrell and his crew understood what terrible circumstances I was facing as I was moving in and were understanding. They were professional and efficient. Quentin P. who did my move estimate was professional, respectful and was very insightful about the difficulties and stress of moving. I will not hesitate to use A-1 Movers again and I am recommending them to family and friends if they ever have a need to move. One more thing: once I had decided to engage them as my movers, within 24 hrs. they dropped off 4 sizes of boxes (including extra heavy dish barrels), wrapping paper, and tape, more than enough for a 2300sq. ft. townhouse free of charge. Never had to buy a single box or tape.

We had a great experience with Proah Movers and Bede. He was very responsive and was also very flexible. After setting an initial date and time, we asked to change the date and he agreed despite having already coordinated for the initially agreed upon day. We also asked to change the move time to two hours earlier and he made that work as well. He and his workers were very quick and careful when moving out our things. We had a couch that we didn't know if it would fit in our storage unit and he offered to move it to the unit and see if it would fit and if it wouldn't, he'd take it for us. He ended up getting the couch in the storage unit no problem. He quoted us an extremely competitive price and did not hit us with any other hidden fees. Highly suggest.

My wife and I were recently moved by Great Nation Moving and Storage and it was a great experience. They were professional, efficient, and polite. Not a single thing was damaged during the move and I have some very heavy equipment in my shop that I was concerned about. No problem for these guys. They had it all safely moved and put in place at the new house without any issues. I highly recommend this company for your move.

After having a very stress free and accurate move, I decided to write this comment. I hired Skyride Moving to move my house a week ago. The movers arrived on time with the packing materials. Movers did not waste a minute. They immediately started packing and loading my furniture. They packed everything with great care, carefully moved my sofa, shelves, bed. In the end they completed the move well within the estimated timeline and stored everything perfectly at the new place. It was a spotless performance at a very good price. I would like to thank them for being so efficient, friendly and polite.

This was the absolute best moving experience we've had and we have moved over 10 times! Terrance and Keith were so fast, gentle with our furniture and boxes, and good at taking direction of where to put things. Terrance's communication was perfect from calling to chat about the job and calling on his way over. I wouldn't look any further for movers because Pro Movers are the one! Thanks guys!

Had a stress free, even fun, move thanks to HaulPROZ. Would highly recommend. The movers were on time, professional, rolled with the punches (like when someone parked in their reserved parking and they had to back a huge truck up a narrow alley), and went the extra mile the entire day. They made the move easy and a great experience. The communications with the company were good as well, but I can't say enough about how wonderful the movers were!

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!

We used Relocation Solutions, Inc. for our office move, and they were absolutely amazing! From the first site visit to working around problems leading up to the move, to dealing with people, and to mastering difficult situations (like blocked loading ramps) - Greg and his team provided stellar service! Estimates were spot-on, planning and communications were superb, and the team's invaluable can-do attitude turned this move into a great experience (and who can say that about a move!?). The moving crew was experienced, professional, courteous, careful, efficient, and FAST. Relocation Solutions left everybody impressed, including our landlord. We are very happy to have chosen Relocation Solutions. Even if you can find cheaper movers: a good mover makes all the difference- and that is what you get with Greg. Five stars for Relocation Solutions.

Moving with US provided a great experience moving into my new apartment. The first time i'm moved by myself—they were right on time, communicated even before they arrived, problem solvers when my apartment building's driveway didn't accommodate their truck, speedy movers, and so very helpful getting my apartment set up to unpack. Couldn't have asked for a better service. Will definitely be recommending and utilizing their expertise in the future!

Gary is a very personable and communicative person. He was diligent in reaching out to understand the job, worked extremely hard, and made sure to treat all of my things with care. The only constructive criticism I would offer is that I think he should’ve brought an additional person to help (my furniture is somewhat heavy and bulky and I think he underestimated it lol). Aside from that, I was satisfied.

Working with NewRay Moving was an excellent experience from start to finish! My roommate and I planned to use movers at the last minute and NewRay was able to accommodate our move with only a weeks notice. Ashley was super friendly and worked after hours to get our move set up. On moving day Delvert and his crew showed up on time, were very respectful, and worked quickly to move all our things from one destination to the next with no damage. I was so impressed with their work ethic and they made moving an enjoyable experience. I would definitely use NewRay moving again!

I could have not asked for more from a moving company. We moved this weekend from MD to VA, and thanks to four movers from Pick Up Movers, our move was absolutely seamless. I am very impressed and satisfied with their service. The movers were punctual and very professional. They go over the details with you on paper prior to starting to ensure there are no surprise fees. They were exceptionally efficient with the moving process. They unassembled and reassembled my furniture for me with no extra charge, which definitely helped ease my stress. I really recommend this moving company to anyone out there that wants a stress-free moving experience.

I honestly can’t say enough about my experience with this company. I sold some furniture to a woman via an internet website. She used this company as her movers. I immediately noticed how fast, hard working and thorough they were. I had recently moved and used movers that struggled with everything and took 12 hours to move me to a 2 bedroom condo. These guys were done in 3 hours and they made 2 trips for her!! I needed a junk removal service to finish clearing out my home. The same day that these guys were moving the woman’s things for her, the junk removal guys showed up. These guys moved a house full of furniture for the woman for less than $250! They moved a washer and dryer, large sectional with recliner, separate living room set, separate love seat, a long dining room table, pub table, office desk, several pictures. Sooooo many things. It took 2 trips and their truck is huge. Meanwhile, the junk removal guys show up and did more talking than anything. They removed a kiddie bed and a queen bed and charged me $360! They also tried to hustle me by suggesting they use a dumpster that was $500 base price! The labor was separate. I would have paid over $1500 to have my things removed. I paid the junk guys and vowed to write a review about how they swindled me. They didn’t even complete the job. They said they had other jobs and would come back another day. I was so upset. I asked this business if they could help me instead. He agreed and only charged me $150!!! They cleaned out my entire basement, upstairs and every single room including the garage! I paid extra because they were so kind and extremely extremely fast!! Please use this company. You won’t be disappointed. I can’t say enough great things about them. Good honest workers who don’t hustle people or rip them off. I’ll alwsys use them.

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.
