Unbelievably one of the nicest genuine two people I've ever met. I was down to the wire just hours before I had to turn back in my keys to a lease ending. They fit me in last minute, they worked with what little money I had left after hiring several services on here for my move including carpets and movers, they were so intent on helping me despite it being a large profit job. I drove away from my former home just leaving on the best note feeling extremely confidant in my leaving the place in great condition. They are an absolute must in your moving needs!

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!

Words cannot describe how efficient and skilled these movers are. Hopefully I never have to move again, but if I do, I know who o call. We unloaded an entire 26-foot truck that was packed in just three hours!

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.

These guys moved me in my apartment on the 3rd floor in the matter of 50 mins. I called Scott and let him know that my moving company m&e express movers didn't show up didn't call and were screening my calls. Up to this day I still have not heard from them to offer an apology. Thanks to Scott he and his 4 men were there early and got me all the way moved in. I am so thankful and next time I move I will use them again, I have told everyone about him. Great customer service. And went the extra mile to help me out in my time of need

The most efficient moving experience we have ever got. The movers crews arrived right on time. They were very kind, friendly and professional. Not what we expected from movers. Guys fit the stuff in the moving truck and it was clean and well equipped. They were fast during unloading the truck and even offered to arrange the space in our new home. Really pleased with our move!

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!

I do recommend communicating outside of thumbtack. Thumbtack under-prepared the movers to my job needs (no fault to mini price at all). They came in and undertook the job like true pros. It was a very hot day and The guys worked efficiently. Would hire again.

    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 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.
