We hired JL Moving October 19, 2016 to move us about 40 miles away from our previous home. My husband I were pleased with the cost of the moving company, they weren't the highest or the least expensive company we interviewed. We had 2 movers show up the day of our move, right on time of when they said they would be there. The movers worked none stop. They were respectful of the home we sold and careful to not scratch any walls. Once we arrived at our new home again the movers were very respectful of our things and our new home. I personally did most of the packing prior to moving day and honestly I didn't do a good job, but with that being said, the only thing that was broken was a drinking glass. I am very impressed with JL Moving LLC and even more impressed with the crew who came to move us. I recommend JL Moving to my clients and in the future I will use them again.

Hiring the guys from Hungry Man Moving was the best part of our move. They were so professional and considerate with their interactions with us which made us comfortable and trusting for them to move our old home to our new home. They were very efficient and careful with all our stuff, not to mention their prices are much more affordable than the other moving companies we looked into. We highly recommend them for your moving needs, and will use them again if we ever move to another new home! -Jason and Kim

I have used many moving companies over the last 20 years. The last time was in August of 2016, not M.S. Property Mgt then. M.S. Property Management was at our home right as scheduled, very polite and professional and the move was done as scheduled and without and problems. Mark and his two co-workers were excellent. It was the best experience I have ever had with a moving company. I highly recommend using them. Thanks, Dennis Eisenhauer

After having a negative experience with a previous moving company, we were so relieved to have made the choice to go with Personalized Furniture and Piano Movers. From my initial contact with Winston, up until the execution of the move, nothing but professionalism was displayed. The movers moved our piano with care and caution as if it were their own. Our whole experience with this company was fantastic-- we look forward to using them again!

My experience with University Movers could not have been better. They were flexible with their scheduling, showed up right on time, worked steadily and efficiently and were careful with everything that had to be moved. Nothing was harmed in the move and everything ended up in the correct locations throughout the house that was being moved into. Their pricing was very affordable (which was great since I was on a tight budget) and in comparison to other moving companies, you cannot find a better value for your money. I don't have a single complaint and would highly suggest using them for your future moving needs!

Needed cracks in the driveway repaired and after a conversation was told they are expanding into others areas of the business like pressure washing, painting, siding. Our conversation also included we were selling the house and moving out of state. Jeremiah reassured me they could do the work. I have since then left the state but my husband is there finishing details. We have had several dates with this contractor and the work is still not done. After reading the reviews, work is continuing on his end but I guess my job was minor and could be skipped and forgotten. I get that Wisconsin has had a lot of rain but the rain didn’t seem to stop other jobs. This tells me that this company will go beyond for big jobs but little jobs are not important. I did not like the fact that my texts and emails were not answered and from the reviews it happened to other people as well. Our initial work date was August 20, which he forgot he was suppose to be there. If you are going to be in business, then be a professional. Customer service is very important to me. I heard from him a couple of times but how long did he really expect us to wait? It just makes me wonder did he really have all the materials to perform my job? How do you pick up materials and never go to the site?? Don’t waste your time with this contractor because he sure wasted mine.

Steve helped me move heavier items from the U-Haul which I transported from my old home in New York to my new one in Wisconsin. Steve was incredibly helpful, kind, and friendly. His estimate and charge were both incredibly reasonable, and he gave me the best price for what I was looking for. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for help moving, either with help transporting items, loading items, unloading items, or even all three. He offers the best value for the price, better than even the 'professional' movers around the area.

Wonderful and professional service and a real pleasure to deal with. They were incredibly flexible with changing plans to accommodate the craziness that comes with moving. They were happy to move all my heavy furniture to the top floor of my apartment building. I would 100% recommend their services to anyone.

Mathew and his brother did great a great job on the painting projects I needed done at my house! The thing I liked best is how focused they were on the quality of work that they did. Too many times, contractors rush through projects so they can move onto the next one. Not these guys. They took their time and made sure everything was up to their extremely high standards. I couldn't be happier with the results! I wouldn't hesitate to use them again on various other projects around my house or recommend them to a friend.

Nothing but the best!! The owner really cares about what he does. Him and his team are friendly and trustworthy. Example, I had a 100.00 bill under my desk. Must have Fallen behind the drawer. I had no clue it was there, he gave it right to my wife. The job was done and over faster then I expected. All around great experience. If I ever have to move again, I will definitely hire Stacked & Packed Movers again. Hoping I don't have too.

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.
