Honestly we chose these movers because they were the most affordable so my expectations were low, and they were far exceeded. They wrapped the furniture very carefully and worked hard. We really appreciated how fast they were able to work, and that they provided and drove the moving truck so one less detail to sort out. Scheduling was easy too. Highly recommend.

He had a difficult time locating the address, totally understandable so we got a late start. But he picked up, delivered my bed from Seattle to Federal Way. He also reassembled it and carried on a piece of furniture I was storing in my car that I had purchased the day before. His price was very reasonable for the time and distance. I would definitely use him again in the future should the need arise! 0

Fantastic movers! They are the best movers I have ever moved with. Carlos was the lead man & worked so well with Nick and Ivan. They were so careful to wrap all my large paintings, white lacquer furniture and white leather chairs with shrink wrap then in blankets. Large flat-screen TV's arrived in perfect condition. Definitely would use them again. Leslie

I contacted a few piano movers. Some quoted me a very expensive price. Some quoted me a move date that was three weeks away. Others said moving my spinet from North Bend to Maple Valley wasn't worth their time. Alan at Integrity gave me a very reasonable price, and was able to move the piano two days from the day I contacted him. He was very responsive throughout the move, texting me updates the whole time. He seemed to care about the job he did, and I so appreciated it. He even gave me advice for moving the piano in my house and not damage the legs on it. I could tell he cared. I highly recommend this company.

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.

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 had a fairly crazy project: staining my 1977 tongue and groove cedar walls and ceiling solid white. I wanted to keep the texture but make the room bright and modern. Enrique showed up to the estimate with a product brochure and did a free sample so we could see how the product looked on the real thing. His estimate was very reasonable and he did not increase the price even though it took more work than he expected. I'm very happy with the result and highly recommend Gomez Painting!

These guys are the best. I had ordered a a very large and heavy bathroom vanity that my husband and I could not get into the bathroom. They came and had it done in 20 minutes for a very reasonable price. They are my movers of choice and I will refer to them and always use their service.

5 star for the the service and handling of my items. I am giving 4 starts because: -Team arrived 1hr15minutes late than the scheduled time. -The given quote was too underestimated. Initially, the quote provided to me was $325(for 3 hours) . I verified too over the phone that how much it would cost in total. I was told that it can go max till $435. But I was charged $545 actually because it actually took 5 hours. There were other movers available with better offers, if the correct estimates were provided then I would have gone with other mover who was giving a better offer. I was getting $100 cheaper from other movers for the same(5 hours) of the duration. I do not expect so much wrong estimation from experienced movers like PNW Moving.

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use again.

Express Movers are the best movers ever!! Here’s the story: Learned I was moving from Seattle on Wednesday before Labor Day. Had to be moved by Sunday. Searched for a mover who would take the job with such short notice and at a reasonable fee. Checked the BBB, and other review sites and found Express Movers. I explained to the owner that I had a LOT of stuff to pack and move. I was unable to help with the move as I had suffered a compression fractured vertebrae. She was able to schedule the move to take place over two days, Friday and Saturday. She gave me a quote that was within my price range. And, she locked the bid so that I would not be faced with additional costs. Come Friday Express Movers showed up on time with the contract that matched the bid. Three men worked for 12 hours and a fourth for 6 hours to do the packing and loading of everything into the truck. All of the men were professional, organized, courteous and not one of them complained about the amount of work to be done. I especially appreciated Vaughn’s (the supervisor), and his brother Vaughnito’s friendly attitudes. When they were done I drove 120 miles to my new home while the movers stored the truck in a secure lot overnight. Saturday two of the movers drove stop-and-go on I-5 for hours because of the holiday traffic. When they arrived they unloaded everything into two storage spaces. Once again they went beyond what any reasonable person would have expected and made the move painless for me. Express Movers got the job done beautifully despite: • the late notice • the huge amount of stuff to pack, load, and move • my inability to help • the distance they had to drive through terrible traffic • and the low bid they gave me Express Movers went above and beyond anything I could have expected. The entire move became a hassle free experience for me. When you need to move and want the very best hire Express Movers!! I recommend them wholeheartedly with no reservations!! You will never regret it!!

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.
