Lori and Cory were both responsive and professional. One of the movers was unsure about what he was doing, but the other mover was kind and helpful. The whole process was completed quickly and efficiently.

Chris and his team were great. Though they showed up 30 minutes late, Chris explained that one of his movers had a family emergency. 2 additional men showed up soon after so I had 4 great movers. They were extremely pleasant, efficient, reliable moved everything without incident and I would definitely recommend them for any job. I will use them again for future moves!

These guys are FANTASTIC. I called another company they didn't answer. Called this company and was scheduled an appointment for Sunday. I was informed that the appointment would be between 3 and 4 pm. I received a call right at 3pm on the dot that they were about an hour a way. 4pm on the dot they were here! I didn't have much stuff to move but the few items I did were very heavy. I had eight pieces of furniture they moved it all in less than 30 minutes to my pod! They were great about moving my stuff and took the utmost care in handling. They were also very polite. I don't think I've ever come across a moving company with customer service orientation in mind. I will definitely contact them again. Also one more thing I was contacted the day prior on Saturday to confirm my Sunday appointment. I was told I needed to print out a sheet for them to sign. Being how my stuff was packed I inquired if it would be possible for the movers to bring a hard copy for me to sign. They did. I know to some it may not seem like much but a little courtesy goes along way and it saved me a 45 minute trip to the store. Anyway highly recommended!

Movers were on time (even a little early) and made fast work of getting the furniture out of the house and onto the truck. They moved the furniture to two different nearby locations and did a good job of keeping track of which item went to which house. Not 5 stars because I had a little trouble getting in touch with the office to set up and confirm the job time. Also, "travel time" made the bill higher than expected. But overall a good experience.

Mom wanted movers to assist her to move within 5 days. Unlimited Movers was the only one available at the time. The staff was prompt in getting things set up. The drivers arrived early and got everything completed within the time frame we requested. No damages. No scratches. Placed everything where Mom wanted. It was the best move we've experienced in a long time.

Both the cost and the amount of time it took were longer than expected, but that happens in every move. The movers and packers were competent and smart - they asked questions when they needed to know something, which was good. We believe we got a very fair deal.

    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.
