They are very friendly, efficient and professional. Only spending 4 hours to move my heavy two bedroom from gaithersburg to ellicott city. The only drawback is that they charge me 4.5 hours for 4 hour and 5 min labor. But given they are so efficient, it is acceptable.

Alex and Sergei were awesome and came ready to work. I was moving one bedroom to another one bedroom 12 miles away. They arrived on time and finished well under 3 hours...2 hours and 10 minutes to be exact (in my opinion, I had a lot of stuff. heavy too). It was 97 degrees with a heat index over 100 and that did not stop them from putting in hard work. The fact that the worked their ass off is why I will always use this company for any future move and I will recommend them to everyone. Great prices and definitely you get your money worth. Watching these guys take my 200lb dresser and load it up so impressed especially when they left the drawers in. 😮 Again, use this company. You won't be disappointed

Baku Moving did all the work during my relocation from DC to NY. I had no problems with them whatsoever because they demonstrated a high level of diligence and expertise. They are highly regarded in DC, and for good reasons. They respect you and your things and will always deliver on their promise. I suggest them to everybody.

The guys were a bit late due to traffic- but they kept me well informed. Khalil and Dom did a ton of work moving all our boxes and they wrapped all of our furniture superbly! Nothing damaged or destroyed in the move. It took longer than the estimated 3 hours (we had a lot of boxes), but the guys took on the extra time without complaint. I would definitely book A-1 again and ask for these guys. Plus, i got the best rate with them!

I had to move my furniture and other miscellaneous stuff from a storage unit to my new studio apartment. Initially there was a set back from my end when I thought I had lost my storage unit key but went to meet the moving help guys at the location anyway. I told them of the situation and they were very affable and understanding. They offered to wait and did wait for about an hour while i was trying to get my unit to open but i couldn't, to which they were more than willing to reschedule at a later time with no fuss or any kind of issue at all. However, I did find my key to the storage unit in a while and called them back once they had left the place. They were back at my storage location in minutes and then it was a smooth operation. Smart moving is quick, professional and adjusting to your needs. I highly recommend Smart Moving for any of your moving needs. Bab and team have been very professional and understanding. My experience was excellent and my expectations were exceeded.

I'm so glad I hired PROAH to help me with a moving. Bede and his guy were great, he answered my messages immediately whenever I contacted him, and the day of the moving they arrived at my place early. They did the whole move (1 bedroom apartment) very quick and diligently. I totally recommend their services and would use them again in the future if necessary.

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.

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.

The crew did a great job of moving the whole town house in 12 hours. Some i had boxed and some they did. I had provided the boxes and some tape. They brought blankets, shrink wrap etc. They did a great job of moving all the items without any damage. However, lost a star when they had put the bed together in one of the rooms they left it in the middle of the room and had not understood that i had told them to set the bed near the wall. Only 1 person understood the instruction i provided while the other 2 had put boxes in the rooms that were not supposed to be. I will make sure that the movers understand English instructions of what i am saying next time if i hire them again.

Greg was wonderful to work with. He was very upfront with all fees during the quote and continued to be reasonable throughout the job. He arrived 45 minutes before the start time and was very motivated to get the job done quickly. He knew what he was doing. He was training a brand new partner during my move (only labor and packing a storage container), which may have slowed it down, but he subtracted an hour from the total time. Overall, I am very happy with my experience working with this company.

This was one of my easiest moves to date, and I've moved all over about once every other year for 10 years! Unfortunately, I injured my knee and wasn't able to do much moving, but Moving With US was so quick, they moved me in less time than I had previously encountered (with me helping). The truck was huge and they had additional packing materials for my large glass desk and TV's. They are very responsive and will provide you with great service. I will be recommending them to all of the neighbors in my new community.

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!

The team arrived promptly, immediately got to work moving each piece of furniture carefully, and always asking if the placement was exactly how I wanted it. Vlady and Petro had such a positive attitude and really wanted us to be pleased with the changes in our home and their service. They removed excess furniture which was no longer needed.

I just needed some help to remove dead trees, shrubbery, and leaves from my yard. Not only did Adrian help with the labor part, but he also provided some great ideas to help us clear the yard more efficiently. He said they also do cleaning and organizing and I plan on hiring them to help organize and clean my basement.

This was my first time ever hiring a moving company and was very reluctant. I had heard how movers loose items, damage furniture, overcharge than the orginal estimation as well as delay dilevery. Pick up movers did not dissapoint! They exceeded my expectations, they came for pick up on time, packed my things with care and delivered on time with all item in place and undamaged. Pierre my sales person was very helpful and was in touch throughout. I have already recomended them to my family and friends.

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 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.
