Overall good experience. They quoted me 5 hours of work and it took 5.5 in total. Given arrival time was between 9-10am and the workers arrived just at 10. Once my two movers arrived they quickly got to work. They were great about wrapping up furniture and the only damage I had was to the legs of my dining table. Just assumed it was scratched up against something in the truck. Prices were fair in comparison to other movers and their 26' truck was just enough space for my large 1 bedroom move.

A2B Moving was able to fit me into their schedule with less than a day's notice, after another moving company cancelled on me. Their movers were on time and got right to work with speed and care. When I paid my final moving bill, it was WELL below the price quote I received over the phone. All in all, a reliable and honest company that I would hire again in a heartbeat!

Ron sent some really great guys. Jeff and Reginald were amazing. Although we were unprepared for this move, the moving costs from Moving Mass were more than we expected or what we had paid other movers. Otherwise, that was our only negative.

I will be contacted them in one year to move me into my house. I hope their business prosper. Sincerely, Crystal

One of the best move experiences I've had! Movers were extremely professional, fast and polite. 2 movers from Moving2Gether were able to achieve something none of 3 man crews I hired previously - 0 damage to any of my walls or belongings! On top of their awesome work, they were not just on time, but they even offered me an option to come earlier which worked very well for me. All my belongings were carefully wrapped and treated with care, so I didn't have to worry about any fragile items that were moved. I really loved my move experience and appreciate having business with Moving2Gether!

Awesome sums up my moving experience with "The Moving Clique." Quality Customer Service, Quailty Customer Care. Sunday June 3rd. My daughter needed to move quickly. While she worked, I researched movers on Thumbtack. Did the whole online research and inquiry. I called "Smooth Movers" 5 Star reviews on Thumtack who said they could do the job and I was given a time. I told them great and that I had to call my daughter to make sure the time worked for her. When I called the company back to confirm the time the owner said he was running into a meeting, and his associate would call me right back. After 3 hours of waiting with no return call, I called them again. I was told unfortunately the appointment time was no longer available and they were completely booked on Saturday. Ofcourse I was not happy and expressed it. The co-owner then assured me he would find a crew to move my daughter on Saturday June 2nd and would call me back. He never did. (I PLAN TO WRITE A REVIEW ON "Smooth Movers" and their nonresponsive poor Customer Care) HERE IS WHERE "THE MOVING CLIQUE" COMES IN. Found them on Thumbtack as well with a 5 Star rating. And true to their rating they are a 5 STAR moving company, unlike "Smoot Movers" My call to "The Moving Clique" was very last minute because the other appointment fell through, although extremely busy "The Moving Clique" came through. We had to wait but they graciously worked us in and got the job done quickly and efficiently. It was worth the wait. The guys were pleasant quick and efficient ... they provided quality customer care deserving of a 5 STAR rating. Thank you Marcus for coming through for my daughter. Signed, a Happy Mother and Satisfied Customer. I highly recommend "The Moving Clique" 5 STARS

We’re so glad we hired these movers. We hired them less than 48 hours in advance to move all our furniture and they were very flexible and reasonable in cost. They even dissembled some furniture and reinstalled our washer and dryer. Great guys!

I recently hired Rickey and his crew from Prestige Movers in Poulsbo to move items from my house in Port Ludlow to a new place on the Kitsap Peninsula. These were mostly large, heavy items from the garage (power tools, stored furniture, shelving, many boxes, a kayak, even lots of lumber). We also asked them to move a couple of heavy pieces of furniture inside the house for staging purposes. Rickey and his crew worked quickly, efficiently, and safely. Rickey has a unique ability to map out in his mind where everything will fit, and we were amazed at how much they were able to transport. Joe (a member of the team) is a wizard at disassembling/assembling furniture (as he did with a large, heavy, multi-section desk unit), as well as driving and maneuvering the truck. These guys also have a very positive, can-do attitude. Overall, this move was a very, very good experience, perhaps one of the very best we've ever had compared to other moves/movers over the past several years. We will use Rickey and Prestige again in the future, and we will recommend them to others.

Requested a yard clean up. Polo came by my house, did a walk through with me & sent me a reasonable & fair quote shortly there after. Polo is very responsive via text and email. I appreciate that & he lets me know when they are coming to do the work as I hate to be in their way when working on my yard. It’s winter, but I’m very pleased with the way my yard looks now. Polo gave me a quote for regular maintenance for the year as well. I’m looking forward to seeing the work progress throughout the spring, summer & fall! I’ll be updating this review in the months to come.

It is white great pleasure I give this review. We reserved labor with Gentle Hand Moving Services to help us move out of our 4 bedroom home. We had rented our own UHaul truck. In the middle of transporting our items, our HAUL BREAKS DOWN, holding the movers hostage on the freeway. UHaul worked quickly to get the truck back up and running and simply couldn't. They ended up send out a replacement truck. We had to have them unload the old truck and reload the replacement. A big inconvenience to them I'm quite sure. We were panicking, but Gentle Hands stuck with us the entire time and insured our items arrived to our new home safe & sound. GREAT BIG THANK YOU to the entire Gentle Hands Team! We don't know what we had done without you.

Positively great experience moving from years in our 4 bedroom house to our new smaller home. These are professional movers - not 2 guys with a truck. Very capable/technically skilled, thorough, hardworking, efficient and so nice. I’d recommend them without any reservations. Service and value! Thanks again Mo and Tim.

Carlos was able to do a same day visit for housecleaning. My house looks amazing and he even took out a bunch of boxes I had been meaning to take to the recycling bin. He and his employee were efficient, respectful, and took pride in their work. Most importantly, I felt safe having them in my home. I’m very glad to have hired them and it’s a huge burden off my shoulders to have a clean house.

The movers at AmerApex Moving could not have done a better job moving our belongings over 2,000 miles away. The crew was on time, polite, very careful, and kept the move fun and in good spirits. Nothing was damaged and the price did not budge a penny. Thank you again for making my move across country stress free. I will be recommending AmerApex Moving to all my friends and family!

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.
