The gentlemen from Heroes Moving & Storage were great to work with. Corey the owner provided great information and tips prior to the move that made it all the much easier and time efficient. The team who helped load the PODS we used were great. They were both very personable and professional. They loaded the PODS to make the best use of the space while also protecting our belongings.

I had water damage to subflooring from door leaks. We needed the entire subfloor in the laundry room and a piece about 8' x 24" in our Family Room replaced, with Durock in the laundry so I could lay tile later. The laundry room had linoleum but the family room has 3/4" hardwood. I had enough leftover wood to replace what had to be torn out to get to the subfloor, so the crew did that as well. I was impressed by the quality of the work and the pride in workmanship. They determined the cause of the water leaks after removing the door casement in the laundry room which revealed that the wood under the door threshold was completely saturated with water and had been finding an outlet into the subfloor because it had not been properly wrapped with waterproofing material during construction. Although there was plastic wrapping under the wood, it only covered about 1/2 of the side exposed to the exterior of the house siding, which allowed water leaking in from the top to run down between the plastic and the wood- effectively trapping it there every time it rained. The crew fixed that by wrapping the new wood they put down correctly. There were a number of things like the above that occurred as the dug into the damage that had been done, but I feel confident that they removed everything that had been exposed to moisture and replaced it, but stuck to their quoted estimate for the job. Don't know if we should name our crew online, but ours deserves to be singled out. They worked until 9PM the first night and were back the next day to complete the job by the end of the afternoon. We'll certainly use them again the next time we need a help with a project. Jericho Croft Farm

Mr. Smith and his associate's services were extremely valuable forcus. He was able to accomodate my very last-munute request for an earlier date than originally planned. He arrived, right on time, with a warm smile on his face, and completed all moving services impeccably. I will always hire him for any future needs without any second thought.

Our experience with Heirloom Express was truly outstanding. My husband and I had moved out of our previous home and while waiting for our new home to be ready, we lived in temporary quarters while our household belonging resided in 2 very large storage units. The company that made the first part of the move was disappointing to say the least. We hired Heirloom Express to finish the move. Linda told us they would bring 2 trucks and 4 movers and quoted an hourly rate. Five movers arrived at the same price. The crew worked diligently and efficiently from 9 am to around 9 pm, taking extreme care to protect our furniture and other belongings. They all exhibited cheerful and kind attitudes throughout. We could not have been more pleased with everything they did, and Linda should be very proud of her employees. Moving is very stressful, but people like this make it a little easier. While we hope to never have to move again, we will certainly and enthusiastically recommend this company to any one who asks.

I needed to hire a mover long-distance for a difficult move. Linda, Tony, and their crew at Heirloom movers made it as easy as it could possibly have been! They came on time, with a full crew. They brought boxes & packing materials as promised, and got straight to work packing under difficult circumstances. In just a few hours we were packed & on our way! Having a moving company do exactly what I needed as promised was such a weight off my mind! I can't say enough good things about Heirloom Movers!!! If you need a mover, call them, you won't be disappointed!

The crew was very nice and got the job done quickly. The rates were lower than any other moving company, but you get what you pay for. Most of my furniture was scratched/dented even though they wrapped it. It’s not a big deal to me but not recommended if you have expensive furniture.

First of all, scheduling the move on the web site and talking to Pierre couldn't have been easier. He answered all of our questions and explained the entire process, including our options. Alex and the rest of the crew showed up on time, and were very professional. They loaded furniture and other items from our house and then loaded items from a storage unit. They did a great job. They were careful moving everything, and did a great job packing the truck. We would recommend them in a second.

Boomers Transitions made my mom’s move to an assisted living community so easy. They helped us sell some of her valuable items, packed up the old house, and set us up in her new downsized apartment. The entire staff at Boomers helped to answer all of our questions and made sure there were no surprises on the day of the move. I highly recommend Boomers for anyone looking to downsize or families who are transitioning to assisted living!

    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.
