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.

Zebna is a great moving company. They were clear and consistent with their pricing and provided great value compared to other moving companies. I was impressed that they agreed to deliver my belongings for an interstate move (Maryland to North Carolina) within one day. They arrived within 30 minutes of the promised window for the pick-up and delivered on the day promised. I was particularly impressed with the two movers who delivered my belongings and reassembled my furniture efficiently with friendliness and good humor. I do recommend packing your own belongings if you hire this company or hiring a separate professional packing service. They are great movers but not professional packers.

Two weeks ago, I hired A-1 Moving Company to help with my move to Charlotte, NC from Arlington VA. After hearing so many horror stories about moving companies, I was very close to doing this move by myself. I did call multiple companies but felt more comfortable after speaking to a representative over at A-1 Moving Company named LaShawn. Unlike other companies, I was given a fixed price estimate that was fair and guaranteed. The day before my move, the work men came and wrapped and disassembled my furniture. The next morning at 7am, they were en route to NC. I felt at ease knowing that my furniture was not being stored or transported with multiple houses. Once they arrived, the same work men unloaded and reassembled my furniture. Overall, it was an excellent experience and gave me hope that there are good companies out there still! Nothing was broken, the delivery was on time and at a flat rate, and the crew was courteous. Thank You A-1 Moving Company! Blake D.

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.

Despite this being the first night we are in our new house and there are hundreds of boxes I need to unpack, I feel that making this review is more important. The service we received today from Great Nation Moving, more specifically our movers was 5 STARS! These three guys went ABOVE AND BEYOND! My wife and I have moved cross country multiple times, so we have experienced many different movers and moving companies. The service we received today from these gentlemen with Great Nation Moving is by far superior to any other we have received in the past. Extremely professional, timely, efficient, and very personable. When an unexpected situation occurred, this company jumped into action and had solutions. If it weren't for them, I am sure the outcome would not have been so favorable and I cannot thank them enough! I would 100% hire Great Nation Moving in the future and highly recommend them to anyone! -Dr. Anderston and family

We received quotes from two long distance moving companies in Northern Virginia as well as several others in the area. Skyride Movers had the best rate for our planned move from VA to SC. Despite the cost effective price the service was professional and fast. Everything arrived intact and was put in the appropriate room. I would hire this company again.

I just moved this past weekend from NW to NE DC, and I would definitely recommend them. While they were late, it wasn't too much of a problem for me because my schedule was flexible. Also, they were very responsive to my calls/messages. Other then that the process was very smooth and the team handled obstacles (narrow stairs, furniture disassembly, small freight elevator) very well and carefully handled my furniture. Also I had more stuff than anticipated and they didn't charge me more for it or complain at all. Most importantly the price was so reasonable compared with what other moving companies were quoting with little to no compromise on service. Thanks Terrence!

Mario helped me out when I had no hope. My movers that I had hired bailed on me and I was stuck and had to find a new moving company within 2 hours. This is when I hired Mario. He was professional, came to the rescue as soon as he could and saved the day. I would hire him and his company time and time again. So thankful to them for making such a crappy day, a huge success.

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.

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.

I can't say enough good things about Gary. I had a long distance move of a studio apartment's worth of furniture, clothes, bed, etc. and it went so smoothly. Gary worked around my schedule, was very professional (had all necessary packing supplies), and got me all of my things to my new home in the condition they left! The value that Gary provide's against bigger, long-distance moving companies is amazing and I would recommend him to anyone looking for movers. I am completely satisfied with GNG's work.

When it was time for me to move, I researched, researched and then researched some more. I talked to many companies. But there was something special about the gentleman on the phone from Pick Up Movers that I decided to hire them. They were absolutely awesome. They packed with military precision. They were out of my house before anyone even knew that I was moving out. I am so very grateful to them for delivering on time and saving the trouble of having to beg them to give me my things back. There are so many inefficient moving companies and fortunately, I got the best one.

Terrence and his team were great. Arrived early and ended up bringing 3 extra men to help (had 6 instead of 3 men) for the same agreed upon rate. Not sure that happens every time, but shows that T&K Moving go above and beyond as needed. Brought their own booties and floor protectors. His crew was courteous and Terrence was very nice to work with. Responsive all the way up to service. We are actually moving them again next weekend for my boyfriend's move. Highly recommend.

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.
