I really loved these group of guys. They were gentle and careful with my belongings and wrapped up all of it so that nothing was damaged. For heavy belongings they used equipment to make sure nothing was scratched or harmed the door or walls. They did not take a break until they had packed and unpacked everything into the new house. I was stunned at the fact that they greeted me by my name and was on time to the house. Everyone wants movers that are charismatic and responsible. I would have not chosen anyone else for the job. They took care of everything; I did not have to raise a finger.

Unbelievably one of the nicest genuine two people I've ever met. I was down to the wire just hours before I had to turn back in my keys to a lease ending. They fit me in last minute, they worked with what little money I had left after hiring several services on here for my move including carpets and movers, they were so intent on helping me despite it being a large profit job. I drove away from my former home just leaving on the best note feeling extremely confidant in my leaving the place in great condition. They are an absolute must in your moving needs!

One mover showed up on time, the other 2 movers were a little late due to traffic - however they emailed me they were running a little late! The first mover went through my apartment and checked exactly what I needed moved. The mover then started taking boxes out to the curb for when the others came. When the other 2 movers showed up, they immediately started moving my furniture and disassembling my bed. They worked quickly and efficiently. When they arrived at my new address, they also worked quickly assembling my bed. Everything was intact and nothing was broken (glass dining table). Very professional team. I would definitely recommend this mover to anyone!

Brittany and the crew are wonderful! They were on time, packed and loaded the furniture with care. Unloading was done promptly and with care. I can not say enough positive things about Best Movers 4U. Brittany was very flexible and helped me resolve all of our logistical problems. She was patient with my many phone calls. The crew moved our things with great care. I would definitely recommend them, and if the need arises I would absolutely use them again.

These guys moved me in my apartment on the 3rd floor in the matter of 50 mins. I called Scott and let him know that my moving company m&e express movers didn't show up didn't call and were screening my calls. Up to this day I still have not heard from them to offer an apology. Thanks to Scott he and his 4 men were there early and got me all the way moved in. I am so thankful and next time I move I will use them again, I have told everyone about him. Great customer service. And went the extra mile to help me out in my time of need

Assemblys For You was perfect. They arrived on time and finished assembling my equipment in less than 1 hour! They were sure to assist in making sure I understood how the equipment worked, cleaned up after themselves and I’m enjoying everything with no issues. They responded to my solicitation with a quote very quickly and their pricing is very reasonable. I would continue using them and recommend their services

My first experience with professional movers was pretty good, I had to use them again and again because I couldn't deal with all those stuff by myself. Having read numerous reviews, I hired these movers and I couldn't be happier with the result. I was scheduled quickly. The 4 movers came promptly at 9am and they stopped working only when they had to wait for me to let them into the

Southside Moving & Storage and salesperson were great. They quickly took stock of what I needed to move, gave me a great flat rate that was honored even though I went a few boxes over and even sent over plenty of free boxes and packing tape. The movers showed up a little late, but had me out of the dump I used to live in without a problem. They even congratulated me on the new apartment when they saw how much better it was :) Thanks for everything!

    We were very pleased with our moving experience. The movers arrived on time, were proficient in their work and friendly. We are located in Richmond but that wasn't a issue since they do not charge for travel. They worked with us to get a good quote that would work for both of us. I highly recommend their services.

    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.
