Very very professional team. I was told to expect them between 1-2pm and they arrived almost exactly at 1:00. The movers are friendly and patient. I had them moved a studio apartment. Even though I was hoping to get the job finished in 3 hr, I was pleased that they finish in a bit less than 4hrs. Nothing was damaged during the move. In general, great service and great price. I highly recommend them.

Zebna Movers price was in the middle and they seemed very professional. I also see their truck around town a lot, so I figured a lot of other people were using them too. The moving coordinator was very competent, and everything worked out the way he said it would. The pick-up and delivery crew were very good and friendly. My stuff went into a storage facility. I would recommend Zebna Movers.

The movers were on time (early even). They were very careful with all my items. Did a great job packing everything into a storage facility for short term. The move took longer than hoped but that is mostly due to the length of the building which I was moving out of. There was a lot of walking from my unit to the elevator and then from the elevator to the loading dock. Movers were very patient with all of this and did a great job. When I find a new place I will use HaulPROZ to move from storage to the new house.

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!

I was scheduled to have the movers come at 9 but received a call at 830 that they were already at my place! I had two guys helping me move my heavier stuff and they were wonderful. They were efficient and very professional. They got everything I needed to be moved taken care of and some extra that I thought I would have to do myself. I would definitely recommend Relocation Solutions to anyone needing help with movers!

Great experience with Moving with us. These guys arrived on time, packed everything and got my belongings to my new place safely. I was very weary because I have expensive items and sentimental items. Instead of doing the move myself I decided to try a moving company and was recommended to these guys by a friend. And he was right, the movers were professional and very reliable. One of the movers told me he'd been doing this work for over 6 years, so these guys are experienced and top notch. Nothing was damaged, nothing stolen. I will definitely be using their services again!

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.

Gary arrived at the peak of a terrible storm but that didn't stop him from getting loaded up. He was polite and professional throughout his whole time here. He responded promptly to my texts and updated me as he approached the drop off destination. After the drop off, he sent me pictures showing that the items in fact had been unloaded at designated destination. It was a pleasure working with Gary and I would recommend him to anyone needing a mover.

This company was recommended to me by my daughter, who has used their services twice. Dealing with Pick Up Movers was the best moving company with which I have dealt. The employees are very prompt, efficient, neat, polite, and honest. They are very careful with furniture and breakable items. Our move was very sudden, which made it difficult for all of us, but the packers and movers took everything in stride and performed at a very high level. I am very grateful for their hard work, efficiency, and patience.

My moving company hired Sasha and Samantha to come over to organize my basement after the movers had dumped all of my kids toys, wrapping paper, clothes, etc into one huge pile on the floor. I was completely overwhelmed with the work that goes with moving not to mention the huge mess the movers caused. I couldn't imagine they would get through that mess in one day, but they surpassed my expectations! They were bright, cheerful, hard working, and professional. I showed them the basement and told them I wanted part of it to be a play area and part of it to be a work out area. That was all the direction they needed! They went to work, and four hours later it was done! I was amazed at what a great job they did, and what a pleasant experience we had! My kids loved having them here, and still talk about them. I highly recommend their services! You won't be disappointed!

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 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.

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.
