Booking for the day and time I wanted was easy.  The guys they sent were pros, and they made my move as quick and painless as possible. They even re-assembled my bed frame for me and probably did a better job than I would have on my own.  I've never used a moving company before, but my experience with People-Movers has convinced me to let them handle all the heavy lifting (you try moving heavy furniture up three floors with no elevator, it's no picnic!).  Can't recommend highly enough.

All-star moving was excellent! We had great communication before the move and the movers themselves were efficient and very helpful. I've already recommended their services to my other friends who are moving.

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.

Integrity Moving & Delivery Services is hands down the best piano moving company that I've ever worked with. The communication is amazing and their work quality is outstanding. Alan and his crew were extremely careful with the piano, my hardwood floors, and anything in my house. It was like they were moving their own newborn baby :) They were extremely respectful and so nice. I've worked with other piano movers who have struggled and damaged my piano, walls, and floors. Alan takes pride in his work and truly cares about his customers. I would not hesitate to recommend Integrity Moving to anyone who needs a piano or large item moved.

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.

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.

Even though they got a bit delayed it was no problem and they worked with me to find a good time that works for us. They were professional, quick, careful and funny too. Out of the movers I've worked with in the past during this year(3 others, lots of moves) Mayar, Momo and Tim are the best.

I wanted to move a couple of boxes and heavy equipment from my home to a storage unit, thus I didn't need a moving crew for a long period of time (the majority of the movers I contacted had minimum time requirements, 3h was the common one). Since Zolo doesn't have those time minimums, it worked perfectly for me. They sent a two persons crew which did a fantastic job, they took care of everything. The only thing I had to do was to show them what was going and what was staying. They also unloaded and arranged my stuff at the destination perfectly. I would definitely hire them again.

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 should you tip furniture movers?

Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.

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.
