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!

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.

I was completely satisfied with the job done. I had a little well alot of anxiety about some furniture that needed to be moved. It holds a lot of sentimental value and didn't want the glass on the two formal dining room chest broken. I was beyond put at ease with the case taken with those pieces as well as the rest of the stuff that needed to be moved. I would highly recommend this company to anyone that asked me for a referral for a moving company.

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.

Pick Up Movers made sure all my valuables reach my new house in great shape. They certainly had the right tools and the correct attitude for the job. The movers were very punctual and their customer service was very promising as well. The quote I got initially was very low considering the other estimates given by different moving companies. The final bill came under the estimate which made me so happy. None of my things suffered a single scratch and I was very impressed. I recommend this company wholeheartedly.

    I cannot say enough good things about my moving experience with FTH. Martin and his crew provided the perfect moving experience. They were prompt and polite, handled the furniture with care, and provided every possible service with a smile. I recommend them very highly. I have moved at least 20 times in my life and this was without a doubt the best experience.

    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.
