I was beyond pleased with my move! I moved from Virginia to Arizona, and it was pretty last minute, but the guys at E&E were willing to do it! I've had horrible experiences with moving companies in the past, but honestly everything went so smooth. The guys were great, and super efficient. They made it to Arizona super quick, and even unloaded my stuff the night they got into town so I didn't have to get another hotel or sleep on my air mattress my first night home. I would highly recommend E&E!

If you're looking for a moving company that is flexible and professional yet personable and family-oriented, Corey & Co. is the way to go. I've hired "corporate" moving companies who can be very strict on their policies, aka unwilling to move anything that isn't in a box (lamps, art, etc.) but because Corey, the owner, is actually onsite (unlike a hired employee working for a boss in some office,) they go the extra mile to accommodate your needs. He even offered to move items we hadn't factored into the moving truck (like an AC window unit we pulled out of the shed to throw into our car). From start-to-finish, you immediately feel comfortable with the entire team because of their attention to details and their ability to make you feel like one of their friends. Lori, office manager & Corey's mom, was very responsive and friendly during the quote & reservation process - even adding in memorable touches like funny moving memes and well wishes on our moving day. They are equipped with all the necessary insurance & equipment making them perfectly capable to execute moves of all sizes. Piano Movers Plus pick-up residential moves as a choice because they are hard-working and understand flexibility is necessary to keep business coming in - so it is important to remember that piano/heavy large item moves are their core focus so they aren't as fast as "corporate" moving companies since they don't execute residential moves on an everyday basis. However, if you want to work with a local small business owner who understands the value of a dollar and isn't afraid of putting in the extra effort to take care of you, doesn't stress or nickel & dime over the small stuff, will make you laugh and ensures that you feel truly "at home" before the job is done - then you would be stupid not to go with Corey & his team of experts.

John was first to call me which for me is always a good sign. He gave me a quote and it was very reasonable and lower than other quotes. I hired him and asked if he was available the next day and he was and said it would be 10AM. John and Bobby arrived on time. They were to fix two bedroom dressers. One of the dressers was a new dresser from overstock and those drawers wouldn't stay on the slides and drawers would fall out. IT was in bad shape. They knew what the problem was and and fixed both dressers. I am very very pleased with their knowledge and experience and needless to say, I am a happy camper!!! Great job, Bobby and John from nooks and crannies. P.S. dont order furniture from the Sandberg company!!! poor quality.

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.

Heirloom Express is an excellent moving company!! Linda & Tony are awesome. We moved in July 18, 2014 and our new home has a 3rd floor playroom & laundry room. The heavy washer/dryer and sectional sofa had to go up there and the staircase was tiny and low ceilings. Anthony & Josh moved those heavy things up the tight staircase and did not complain or question it once. They also moved my 6 foot long, antique sideboard into 3 different locations while I decided where is should ultimately be placed (again no complaints). The crew of 5 movers plus Tony (boss) worked efficiently and carefully, completing the 5 bedroom house move in 7 hours. The hourly rate is very competitive and reasonable as I received quotes from 3 moving companies. I would hire Heirloom Express and this crew time and time again. They are AMAZING and affordable!

This outstanding review is for the 4 young men that actually did the moving, Jeff and his co workers. I spent most of Nursing career taking care of others. These 4 Gentlemen took care of me. They did anything I ask. The went so far as to help me transport my oxygen. They moved quickly. The did not break anything. They did not loose anything. They were kind efficient and professional. I spoke to 4 moving companies and chose Heirloom even if they were higher priced. Because of the conversation I had with Linda. And the 4 gentlemen that actually did the work really lived up to her word. Shirl W. Retired Nurse.

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.

This was a huge relief because my initial move to Ashburn, VA was a huge disaster. So disastrous that we were very skeptical about ever using another moving company ever again. Pick Up Movers restored our trust in moving companies. We received on-time, reliable and honest updates from our agent Frank. The delivery guy updated me a day before the delivery arrives and called me again 30 minutes away. The people in the office and the field people are accurate and very polite. I don't have any problem with these people and I am willing to refer them to my colleagues and friends.

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 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.
