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.

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 and Thomas were pretty good, and I'd definitely use them again. Their service was half the price of others. They seem to be a young business still figuring things out; they weren't as fast or smooth as other movers I've used, but for the dollar amount they did great. They weren't fully prepared when they arrived (no moving blankets, but if I had moved myself I wouldn't have had any, either) and because of not having all the tools they needed, they had to spend extra time packing my items carefully (which I appreciate!). They are rough around the edges (taking smoke breaks, brought a friend along who wasn't a mover, stopped for lunch during a two-hour move), but I'm totally okay with all of that....to me, it isn't worth paying twice as much just for a more corporate vibe.

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

Jeno is a true moving specialist-a professional from start to finish! He arrived at the move-out site early and ready to go. We were moving a full 10' x 10' storage unit, plus additional boxes from our temporary house to a new house. Jeno was able to do the entire move in one trip, with his Tetris-like skills. He and his assistant worked quickly and efficiency, while taking utmost care in moving large items. Absolutely no nicks or scratches on any of my doors or walls after the move! Jeno has over 7 years of experience in the moving business and it shows. Working with Jeno was a pleasure and money well spent. I would definitely use Eastside Labor again.

I can't begin to tell you how lucky I was io find such a wonderful moving company...I hate moving as it is but I am at a loss for words as to how I feel about movers having had one company steal everything I owned and held it for ransom for 3 months and over $5000 before komo news ran the story and I got about 1/2 back and everything damaged. I swore I would never hire movers again...but... I found myself in a bind having to move twice in a month I had no choice, I needed help and knew I would have to hire movers. Throughout my search as bids came in only one company had paid attention to what I wrote and responded with kindness and compassion and a promise to make me change my mind about movers. Justin convinced me to give his company that chance and I am so glad I did. He kept his promise. They did an amazing job! Fast, punctual, careful, friendly and fairly priced...not a single item was scratched, everything made it to my new place safe and sound without a hitch. This is a phenomenal company, and I am more than happy.to highly HIGHLY recommend them!

Clutter was awesome from start to finish. We used them for a straightforward, A - B move, and the customer service was impeccable from the booking process through to the payment process! Mo made booking a breeze, gave us an accurate quote--and to make things even better, you can reserve your date/time slot in advance and cancel up to 48 hours before your move if necessary! Not a lot of companies allow for that flexibility and it was greatly appreciated. The guys that ran our move were equally as impressive-- Dallas was the lead mover and did a great job explaining the charges and time tracking. Clutter does a stellar job of keeping things as straightforward as possible with no hidden fees or scary add-ons. Both Ralph and Sadiqi were with him to help move our apartment and all three of them were fantastic! Quick, efficient, and polite! Our stuff made it over without a scratch or any issues. Dallas made sure we were aware of a promotion happening at the time and helped facilitate a call with Customer Care to be sure we were charged correctly. Tammy was our customer service rep and she took great care of us. All in all, a really easy process and we couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks guys!

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
