The guys were GREAT they loaded the truck ultra fast, was very considerate and observant of the time as to give us the fastest, best service within a time that saved us money. They worked quickly and efficiently. The same was true when we arrived at our new apartment. They were very quick and proficient. They were very knowledgeable about their job and about giving wonderful, fast, courteous service. If I move again I am 100% sure that I will hire them again. The only thing that could have went better was a few things that got broken that I can not replace. I understand these things happen and with the best movers and even you moving yourself there are times that things are going to get broken or damaged. I had a china closet that is well over 100 years old and they were WONDERFUL and extremely careful while handling it and it made the move without a scratch so you win some and others can be lost. Thanks Eric and Rico you did a FANTASTIC JOB!!!!!! Anyone considering hiring movers to get that job done HIRE these guys you won't be sorry.

Patrick arrived a little early and started by laying down pads to protect the wood floors and warping the door jam at the entry point. The small move was accomplished very quickly even with the movers allowing me to put casters under the legs of my furniture to protect the wood floors. All in all they were professional and they knew how to move the furniture (took the back of the sofa which I didn't know that could be done). I am very pleased with their work.

These movers were great. They seemed delighted to help us move, and even helped us do a few things that we didn't know we were going to be doing. Their rates are very competitive and the 4 hours we spent with them was totally worth it! They were very careful moving the furniture, no damage to anything. We hope to use them in our next move.

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!

The movers were great and worked efficiently. No complaints about work at all. But it should be noted that your time begins when they leave the office. And when they return, I did not find this out until they showed up. I'm not sure if this is industry standard but it was not something I expected. Their hourly rate, however, was competitive so I wasn't upset because they were still cheaper than other movers. And the office responded quick as compared to the other companies I had contacted. Would definetely use again.

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!

These are the most polite, patient movers, careful, respectful movers I've ever hired. In fact, they've now done two moves for me and will later do a third. The second move, to a local storage facility from a POD full of grimy, ant infested, spider webbed cruddy old stuff, had to be done completely in the rain. Best Movers is a great recommendation from Thumbtack and thanks so much for the reference to them.

This is my forth time having Scott's Moving and Labor Service move me and my family, and it will not be the last! They are fast, efficient, affordable and they packed my things so neatly into the truck! Usually movers just throw your things on the truck any kind of way, but not Scott's Moving and Labor Service! I have never had anything broken or anything left, thats why I keep going back to them for my moving needs. The guys are so nice and couteous, they have great communication amongst each other, and they always put my things together right, and honor my special request because im kind of picky when moving. Theres no anxiety for me looking for a mover, Im gonna stick with these guys for the long haul. Thanks again Scott, Shakey and Val for the problem free easy move. Me and my family are sleeping good tonite!

Awesome experience! The movers were on time and super efficient. I requested the move with only a one day notification and they helped me without any reservations. They packed my apartment up quickly and with expertise and drove about 200 miles without any issue. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to move and needs help. Great price, even better service!

We used Southside Moving & Storage to move several apartments' worth of furniture and stuff across the country. They were absolutely great, accommodating multiple drop-off points, being cheerful and efficient, and delivering things completely intact. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for professional movers, especially having dealt with the unprofessional kind before.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
