This was a tough review to write as there were some highlights but also some severe negatives. I would probably give somewhere between a 2.5-3 stars. People Movers got back to me quickly after I inquired about a quote from them. They were straightforward and easy to talk to. The move we were trying to coordinate was a little over 2 weeks out and Elena was great and working out several different times and dates for us to choose from. Piece of cake so far. The day of the move arrived. The movers arrived in the time frame as promised and were very nice about getting the truck in the exact place needed. I walk them through our 1 bedroom apartment and they get started. This is when things start going a bit south. I've used numerous moving companies of all kinds now; full on professional movers and the slightly more budget friendly movers. I've also done enough moving on my own to know that moving is not an easy job. It's why at a certain point in your adult life, you begin to pay a moving company to move your stuff for you; it's a physically demanding job. For that reason, I never mind it if a mover needs a quick break here and there. I totally get it. However, I also expect that the movers that I'm paying for are more physically in shape and capable of the job from start to finish. It became very clear early on that one mover was great at his job (Zaran) but the other mover was not. He was very inexperienced and just not as up to the physically demanding aspect of hauling furniture and boxes for hours. It was also difficult that he spoke zero English. Please don't get me wrong; his inability to speak English wasn't what made him bad at his job but it doesn't help if I can't at least communicate basic requests, concerns or questions to him especially given his inexperience in the moving industry. We don't have a lot of stuff overall and again, having used enough moving companies by now for comparison, I know that to move the amount of stuff we have takes on average 3-4 hours from start to finish. When we hit hour 3 and we still had more to load; I realized we were going to be way over that timeframe. So I started hauling stuff to the moving truck as well, which I have never had to do with any other moving company. To be fair, I was hauling some of the lighter things but I still was hustling back and forth with the guys to get the job done which was a bummer as the point of not doing a DIY move was so that I'd have the physical energy of unpacking and getting us moved into the new place. In the end, it took considerably longer than it should have. Zaran was great and I would work with again but the problem with the more budget friendly moving companies is that it's a mixed bag of who you might get as your movers for that day and that can really change the experience. They did provide wardrobe boxes (though a couple of them were in bad shape) and seemed to have extra boxes to use free of charge (we didn't need any) and with the exception of one of our side tables, nothing else was broken or damaged as far as I can tell. Zaran worked really hard and tried to make up for the lack of the other person's capability. Zaran did offer a decent discount as he knew the move took longer than it should have, for the damage to the side table and for me helping out too. That was very appreciated and helped lessen the sting of disappointment. I tipped the movers (Zaran got a bit more as he did a much better job), gave them water bottles through out the day and they of course had use of the restrooms. Would I use People Movers again? Sadly, no. The move ended with more frustration and me being tired and not ready to jump into unpacking our place as I had hoped I would. No one was rude or mean but there was just a level of inexperience and efficiency that was a little too lacking, even with Zaran doing a good job in and of himself.

Preston was wonderful at the estimate appointment. His guys Oly and Kyle went over and above to work quickly but to keep everything from getting scratched or damaged. They all hv awesome personalities and I will definitely be sending friends and family there if they need to move! So different from the big moving companies! Good job guys!

Corey and his staff was able to bring up a very heavy and cumbersome armoire up 16 steps in our house without damage. The work was not easy but they were able to do it without problems. He was able to match another quote that I had with a different moving company and was readily available within two hours of my request.

I have used A2B Moving twice now, and both times was very pleased with the service I was given. The guys were quick, handled my property professionally, and were flexible/personable/even offered suggestions or ways to be more efficient on day-of the move. I moved to Portland the second time so they went a little out of range, and still were much easier to work out the logistics with than other moving companies I compared to or have used in the past. Would defintely use again.

Perfect moving company. I will definitely hire them again. Even though they were running late, they called me and said that they would be about 40 minutes late due to traffic. They did lots of extra moving since there were two men and I explained the items move. No problems at all and I only needed a tape measure and a small steplatter, a few other items that I found. We were moving two refrigerators and some tables and chairs, a sofa and se outdoor furniture up and down stairs and all around the two buildings. The price was fair and abilutly professional services, I will hire them again. My Fridges moved so well and now are cool and wonderful. PERFECT. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Moving2Gether are awesome. They are young guys with experience. They helped me to move a 1bd apartment from Fremont to Ballard. I'm impressed with this moving startup. They were really efficient, very fast but organized, super friendly, professional and fun to be with. It's easy to get free quote from their website. They'd contact you back speedily and they were so good at answering questions. I was kinda stressed out on the moving, contacted them several times for asking questions and rescheduling. They always responded quickly and solved all with politeness. They also gave me friendly suggestions, like to reserve elevators in advance. On the moving date, they were punctual and called me about 30 mins before their arriving to let me get set. During the moving, they helped me wrap my furnitures well, and even tightened the loose bolts on my couch sofa. They moved all my furnitures and fragile stuffs with care. For my second apartment, it's hard to find a parking spot. The guy run to help me negotiate with leasing manager to let moving go smoothly. They were thoughtful to check with me how I'd like to arrange boxes/furnitures. They finished all the jobs in 2 hrs, amazing! Last but not lease, their price is most competitive. I'd use them again for my next move without hesitation and recommend Moving2Gether for everyone who wants a worry-free moving! Thank you GUYS:)

Everything arrived at the destination without a scratch and they put everything exactly where we needed it. If the need ever arises, hopefully it doesn't, I would use these guys in a second.

I didn’t go with the moving company that had a ton of reviews, I went with these guys and I’m so glad I did. I felt like friends who cared about me and my belongings were moving me. Courteous, professional, seasoned, skilled— they maneuvered some expensive items for me and based on the way they listened and responded to my concerns up front, I trusted them. I was impressed with how quickly they worked. They did a fantastic job and I will totally hire them again, and recommend them to my loved ones. 100% fantastic experience.

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.
