Used this company for packing and moving services for a multi-stop move from D.C. to Maryland. The professionals were great - the packers were careful and efficient. They also brought all the supplies which made things so much easier. Materials price list is reasonable as well. Not one item they packed or moved was chipped or broken. The movers worked efficiently and took good care of our things. All the professionals were great to work with. Also appreciated the straightforward pricing on packing, materials, and moving. It made things a lot easier. Just make sure you confirm how driving time is factored into the total # of hours so you're not surprised at the end if there are a couple extra hrs on there.

My family and I couldn't have asked for a better experience than what Zebna Movers provided. From the initial in-home estimate to ultimate delivery of our household goods, the entire Zebna team provided top-notch service at an extremely competitive price. El Ibra, our moving liaison, was prompt, respectful, and truly did everything in his power to ensure that our last-minute move from Virginia to Florida went absolutely seamless. The actual moving team showed up ahead of schedule and worked tirelessly and efficiently to pack our entire 4+ bedroom home in a matter of hours. Since I was forced to remain in Virginia and finalize the sale of our house, the moving crew then traveled to Florida and went out of their way to make absolutely certain my pregnant wife had everything she needed; the team was comprised of genuinely considerate people. We honestly could not have accomplished this move without Zebna's exquisite service. Having requested quotes and meeting representatives from a number of moving companies, I am absolutely certain we made the right choice in selecting Zebna Movers.

Khalild and Dom were absolutely fantastic. Very professional, energetic,accommodating and pleasant. Our move ran late due to a back up earlier in the day (that was not the moving companies fault), they did not complain once as we ran into late evening. I would strongly recommend not only this company but the men specifically- moving is never fun, but they made it easy!

I had a wonderful experience with Rose and team from Great Nation Movers. From start to finish it was a smooth process. I appreciated the In-home visit for the consultation. That's really what made me decide to choose Great Nation over other moving companies. On moving day, the team arrived to find me overwhelmed with all going on. The entire team jumped in right away to finish the packing and start the loading. I could not have been more pleased with the job they did. Pick up and delivery was smooth and flawless. I could not have been more pleased with the job they did. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

I have a 4 year old and I'm currently pregnant. My husband is constantly busy with grad school work and his brother who lives with us works a lot of 12 hour shifts. Basically, I needed help moving things out of shipping container that's sort of like having a storage unit at your home. I had to go through boxes and tubs to figure out what needed to be placed in a garage or in my home. These guys did this service for me considering that it wasn't their standard way of doing business. They were very professional, patient and understanding. They both listened to my needs and helped me obtain my goal. One of the side requests I had was to make sure that my holiday decorations were put in the garage last and that they left me with enough room for my dogs to be put up out of the cold at night. Thank you for your fast and efficient work. You guys answered my request first and I'm glad I hired you!!

Provided packing and moving. Though because of how things were arranged, I did most of the packing so I would be able to find things easier when it came time to unpack. The two guys were very prompt on arriving and got started almost right away. They were very careful with my larger and heavier items and took extra care to watch out for the walls and surroundings. At the drop off there was a little mix up on which items were going to the new apartment and which needed to be taken to the storage unit, but it was all resolved within a few minutes.

Great moving company! They quoted me an amazing price online and honored that price. Most other moving companies try to retrade the price, but Pro Movers is true to their word. They even moved more items than originally quoted - including my Vespa! Will 100% hire again!

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.

This was my first time using a moving company and Moving With Us made it a GREAT experience! They gave me plenty of notice when they were running 30 minutes behind. They went over all the rooms and made sure they got everything on the truck that I had packed. And when it came to unpacking the truck, they were super professional in making sure everything I had was put in the room that it was meant for. We went over all the paperwork when the truck was first packed and again at the end unpacking. It took 4 hours from start to finish and the price was cheaper than I thought for 3 men and their time. The only complaint I have is they took off a few corners but I was able to patch those without my previous landlord charging me. I will absolutely use Moving With Us in the future!

I had my carpet replaced and needed assistance moving things off the floor to another apartment until the installation was completed. Many of the moving companies wanted to charge me for coming out with a truck (which I didn't need) and two movers for several hundred dollars. Mr. Poole provided excellent service, he was on time and able to complete both moves in a professional timely manner. He went the extra mile and helped set up items after the move. His rates and customer service were great.

Evans and Teddy were fantastic! They arrived early to start packing up my stuff. They finished packing and loading up the van quickly and carefully. They then were able to move my stuff in without a loading dock within a half hour. Whole experience was about 2.5 hours. They were professional, friendly, and incredibly helpful (even fixing my bookcase which was broken before they came)! I will definitely use EZ Movers again for my next move.

We could not have been more happy with Adrian during our move last weekend! They were punctual, efficient, and great to talk to. The move was quicker than we thought it would be and hiring them made all the difference. Checkmate was also so much more affordable than some of the bigger moving companies I originally looked into. I can't recommend them enough.

A very professional responsive service that has a “can do” approach. Little time wasted and upfront disclosure of potential problems before moving forward with work so you can decide if you need to adjust the job to be done.

As a disclaimer, I was unable to actually use this company for moving due to rescheduling issues on my end. However, they were willing to work with me through many changes and were very responsive through the whole process, even though it was a holiday weekend. I highly recommend them for their customer service alone. I will definitely use them in the future and recommend them to friends and family.

I am SO impressed by the recent packing services I received from Cliff and Rob. I was frantically looking for someone to help me pack for an upcoming move, and Cliff made the process so easy. They were easy to schedule with, punctual, flexible, efficient, and friendly. They did such a good job and made packing for a move, somehow an enjoyable experience. I have moved several times in the last few years and have yet to come across such an easy and efficient process. Sounds like they offer basically any service you can think of (packing, moving, hanging, etc) so if you need anything - I recommend these guys!!!!

This moving company is the only moving company I will use for ANY of my future moves. The movers were very polite and professional. They made me feel secure that my things were being handled with care and once we arrived to our destination, they moved my things in quickly and properly and put my bed and dining room table together.

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.
