For about 2 weeks I was looking for a affordable moving company. I came across "All About You". One of the smartest decisions that I made this year.! Everyone was very polite and professional. The movers came to my house earlier then scheduled which was a plus for me because time means a lot to me. The movers Jonny and Brian were very respectable and the move was PERFECT! No complaints! After calculations with I saved about $300.00 versus going to another moving company. I would definitely recommend this company! Donovan R.

Patrick was a real pleasure in his work and demeanor. He kept me calm when I was stressing about the move and took care of all the moving, even the dreaded grandfather clock! It was a great experience, even if the last part got quite a bit stressful, but a solution was in hand and all went very well. I HIGHLY recommend The Moving Man!!!

Used moving service to help my mother move to another apartment. Glenn was very responsive in answering all of my questions, even late at night. Within a week of initial contact, my mother was moved on a Saturday morning and she was very happy with how courteous and professional the gentlemen were. I would definitely contact Glenn again for services.

What a great couple of guys. They were polite, professional, and mindful of their work. They loaded our furniture into the truck like a perfect round of Tetris. We challenged them, with the task of moving an 80-inch, solid-pine armoire up a stairwell. They put their backs and their spirit (and a clear understanding of physics) into it, along with the rest of the furniture for a full two bedroom apartment. We could not have done it without them. .

Doug was very quick to respond to my request. Gave me a general quote online and stood by his quote once I sent him a picture of our project. Very flexible and cooperative. Met with my daughter, reassessed the project in person and went with her to the store to get the part that was needed to fix the problem. Found a much more affordable solution to replacing the entire item. My daughter was very pleased with his work, responsiveness and attitude. So glad to know I have someone reliable and trustworthy that can do handyman services at an affordable price. From initial contact to completion, I believe the job was done in less than 36 hours and the reason for the delay was because of my daughter's work schedule. A++ service from an A++ provider.

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.

Skyler reached out to me very quickly after submitting my job. He said he would be at my house at 8 to pull weeds and when I looked outside at 7:57, he was already at work pulling them. He was very polite and professional and more importantly, he did a great job and got every last weed out of my garden. I’ll definitely hire him again

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.
