These quotes include tolls, taxes, fuel costs and all other fees. Adding extra services like packing, specialty items or storage will increase the overall costs. Don't forget to factor in the tip as well — typically between 15% and 20% for long-distance moves.
Moving APT FAQ
Is Moving APT a carrier or a broker?
Moving APT is a moving broker, not a carrier. This means that Moving APT does not transport possessions, so you won’t see a branded Moving APT truck on moving day. Instead, the company works with a network of nationwide movers and matches customers with one of its partners to perform the move. However, Moving APT still works with customers from booking through pickup and delivery.
How can I be sure I’ll be partnered with a good moving company?
Moving APT only works with movers that are registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation. Upon getting matched with a third-party mover, you can look up the company on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website, which includes recent complaints, registration status, USDOT number, fleet information and other relevant company details.
Does Moving APT offer any discounts?
Moving APT works with movers that offer discounts for military personnel, seniors and people with disabilities. It also offers flexibility discounts, no-storage discounts, short-distance move discounts and early reservation discounts. If you qualify for any of these discounts, mention it during the quote or consultation process.
Do we recommend Moving APT?
The most important thing to understand about working with Moving APT is that it is a broker, not a carrier. The main advantage of working with a broker is that it gives you access to numerous moving companies through one contact. If you want help navigating an overwhelming moving process and don’t know where to start, Moving APT helps you get organized, choose the right moving company and find the best deal.

It was excellent with Moving APT. Their price was better, and compared to the big commercial movers, they were willing to do a smaller move. We sent them an inventory of what we had, and they were able to estimate the poundage and do it that way. They returned phone calls, showed up when they were supposed to show up, and got the stuff straight through North Carolina. Everything from A to Z was spot-on. I would use them again in a second.
Thank you so much William, it was our pleasure! We're here should you ever need us again!

The first guy I talked to at Moving APT was named Ian and he was pretty helpful in explaining everything and in navigating the setup process. Later on, there was some confusion about how the payment was to be made and what exactly the charges would be. They could have done a better job with making clear the payment options and how the additional charges would be added based on stairs. But the moving crew from Eastland Movers were very good. They picked everything up promptly and packed everything really well. Moving APT initially said the delivery would be within a couple of days and that it could be up to seven business days. But Eastland delivered at the same day, even though it was a long-distance move. So I was very happy with those guys.
At delivery, everything made it intact, except for one dresser with a mirror. There was a piece of it that was used to help it screw in which was made of some kind of paper material. So they had a hard time taking it apart without breaking that. But it was a weird feature of the furniture itself and that was not their fault. Eastland was also very good with communicating everything and letting me know what was going on. They had an instance where they had to wait a little bit longer because my new place wasn't unlocked and I hadn't gotten there yet. But they were completely fine with that and they kept going as planned.
Thanks so much for the review Sam! Please feel free to contact our Customer Service Department at 786-528-6086 or at email@example.com if you need to file a claim for the dresser / mirror. We're happy to take care of your compensation or anything else you need, just let us know!

I had a storage unit down in Florida and I come back to New Hampshire. I was wondering how to get it from there to here. I was doing some searches and Moving APT called me and asked if I was interested. They gave me the details and the price. It sounded good so I did it. I had one little glitch when I had to make sure they were doing one of two days because I was only gonna be there for three. I got off the plane, turned on my phone, and they went, "See you Thursday." I go, "Uh-uh. I'm leaving Thursday." In the end, it got worked out.
On moving day, three guys came to do the pickup. They were fast and they knew what they were doing. There were some things that I never got into another box and their guy said, "I'm putting all the loose stuff in here." That was fine. I had a friend's photo in that, which was cracked already, and they wanted to make sure, "Did we do this?" I go, "No, no, it was like that. Don't worry." I had college hunks moving junk from my condo there and they broke a few things.
The move took a few weeks. During the delivery, they came a day earlier than expected and that was fine. I was talking to them and they were telling me that they were in Buffalo and then they will be up in Burlington. I don't know how they keep it all tracked down. The things were in different sections and there were different openings on the things so they get right into what they needed to. They called me to make sure that they could get their big truck in where my place is and to make it as smooth as possible. They stacked the things in the storage unit up here beautifully. It was cold and we were freezing. I gave them 100 and told them to warm up and have dinner. I just felt I needed to.
What a beautiful story Susan! Thank you so much for your detailed feedback! We truly appreciate your business and taking the time for this review :)

I was moving from Baltimore to Arizona, from an apartment to a house. I was on the sixth floor of an apartment and I had a pretty specific timeframe I wanted to be in. Forbes gave Moving APT a good recommendation. I used them and they were very professional. They took an inventory over the phone. Fortunately, I had started packing very early and I wasn't moving a lot of furniture. I was moving totes, so I was able to be accurate in my count and this probably helped me have a good experience. But I do think that could be an issue for a lot of people that they underestimate the count. On the day of, they may be in for a surprise. Also, I would have preferred that they picked up the inventory a little bit earlier. They quoted me over the phone and were promising me a four-day window. It ended up being a seven or eight- day window. But it worked out okay.
It wasn't a very large move, just one bedroom. On the moving day, there were three guys there and they were professional. I watched them load stuff and felt comfortable that they were handling the fragile stuff properly. They had to go through elevators and stairs and they seemed to handle that fine. The person that delivered my stuff was a one-man show and he was extremely professional and had a strong sense of urgency. They did better on the receiving end than the pickup end, but both were fine. The end price was extremely accurate. Moving APT was almost half the cost of PODS, which is unbelievable. PODS wanted to charge me 5,600 and I had to load the stuff myself. My price with Moving APT was 2,800.

My interactions with the rep from Moving APT were very professional. I requested a quote and I was called back promptly within a reasonable amount of time. They were thorough with their questions on what was being moved. It was what they said it was and there weren’t any real surprises when they showed up. The only thing was they had a mover that was making a run and had them on a couple of different pickups along the way. Some of the people weren't ready when they showed up. It was the customer's fault and it set us back a day. It was inconvenient.
We were expecting the movers on a Sunday at 9 o'clock in the morning and they knew at 8 o'clock the night before they weren't gonna make that deadline. They could have called us ahead of time in order for us to be prepared for them to not show up because both my aunt and uncle are disabled. So there are a lot of things in place. They could have communicated earlier when they knew, not two hours after they were already supposed to be there that they weren't gonna be there for another day. That part suck. But it's factors of the unknown. It wasn't anything to do with the moving company. They were trying to accommodate the customers that were negligent in their own actions.

When I was looking at the reviews, I couldn't find any negative review about that Moving APT was not able to make the time commitments that they had come to. Also, when I looked at the estimates, they were much better in terms of giving what I thought was a thorough estimate and answering my questions. There weren't any charges that I wouldn't be aware of. But that was because they were so thorough in giving an estimate to begin with. So, I felt more confident in the bid that it would be what I was charged in the beginning. At the first round of bids, they were not the cheapest. And I’ve compared it to others. I went line item by line item and compared it. I went back to their company to ask them, “Oh, what about this? Might there be a charge for this? Because we didn't talk about this and this is my situation.” And it turned out it would be the same or more with these other companies.
Moving APT kept in touch with me about the schedule, because I had to do it in advance. I always had a contact number to stay in touch with people. And they always got back to me. Everything went as planned and expected. I had a very small note. And I was moving things that were in a storage unit. So, my needs were different than most people. I needed them to be able to stick with their days and times that they gave me because I was moving. That was the most important to me. I would recommend that people look into them.
Thank you so much for your recommendation Karen! We appreciate it so much! :)

The response back from Moving APT was quick so I went with them. This was years ago and I used them again for my last move. It was the same reason I moved this time as well. Everything was good. They gave me a three-day window. Within that time, the driver could not come and pick up all my household things. He said he could only come to the pick-up on Saturday. I was a little worried for a day. I had to call the Moving APT coordinator and they resolved it. The driver came in within the three-day window.
I packed everything myself. I was satisfied when the crew came to pack my stuff up into the box truck. All in all. the price was good. Whatever quote APT Moving gave me, I was satisfied. The only thing is I tried to get my invoice and I didn't receive it yet. Everything had been paid. The expectation was I sent an email and the rep said the driver should have given me the invoice. I don't know how I can contact the driver. I need the invoice for tax purposes.
Thank you so much for the review Mohammed! Our Customer Service Department is sending you a final invoice now as requested!

I was moving and had something set up with another company, but they changed the price from $2,700 to 9,000 the day before I moved. I did some frantic googling and found Moving APT, and it worked out better. The rep and the moving coordinator were very good. There was a small hiccup where when I booked with Moving APT, they said that our stuff will be delivered within one to two days. I kept asking for updates and confirmation before they put our stuff on the truck, and then after it was on the truck that day and then the next day, and it took them a couple of days.
Then they said it would be a week before we got our stuff. We were sleeping on the floor of our house with our animals. We couldn't go to a hotel because we had pets. We would have planned a little differently and packed differently if we knew. Other than that, the movers were great. As far as the final cost, I asked if they could deliver any sooner than a week, and we've paid a lot for them to deliver it a little bit sooner. That was fine.

It was a freaking disaster with Moving APT. Everybody was fantastic when they picked up my stuff but it went rapidly downhill from June 3rd. According to them, the delivery would be 10 to 17 days. But I never heard from them. After 30 days, I called, but there was no reply. I texted Terry a couple times, and he informed me that the truck broke down. Somebody should have reached out to me and told me that. Another 20 days went by, and they told when they'd be here. I told them that I had told them I needed 48-hour notice to reserve the elevator. There was some other excuse. It was madness. When I was having issues, Terry got back to me one time, but there were a couple of times when I didn't hear from him for three weeks. There was zero follow up on their behalf.
My delivery was supposed to come last week, but the driver got pulled over at a weigh station. Finally, the next day, Adam showed up. But half my boxes were empty. Each box didn't weigh more than 20 pounds because I didn't want the guys to be busting their ** carrying my stuff, and I didn't want my stuff falling through the boxes. I put four strips of tape across the top and four strips of tape across the bottom and kept them light, but it was still a disaster. My wardrobe boxes were completely crushed. There were holes in about six boxes, and they lost a $1,500 remote control golf caddy. They said that'll have to go through insurance and I would get paid 60 cents a pound. I'm gonna get $18 for a $1,500 golf caddy.

I already did a spreadsheet on what I wanted to be sent, so getting the inventory estimate and quote were okay. But it was frustrating because I had to go back online and do it again anyway. I get that but it was just inconvenient to me because I was getting on a plane. It felt like I went through the inventory three times. But we got it done. My mom said there was enough people there to take care of the move. There were large items and they wrapped them up really well. It was very nice. They respected her property. I was good with the experience. I got lucky too because I was up in Seattle and they were able to find me somebody that was going directly to Las Vegas where was the delivery location. All in all, I was quite pleased and it was reasonable. I would use them again.
Thank you so much Juwon! We truly appreciate your business as well as the review! Best wishes for you and your mom!

We learned after we were already in the process of things that Moving APT just manages the move. They contract an actual mover in the area to do that. But we liked the cost, and we had a good experience with the person that we dealt with. It was several people that we dealt with, but they were all very professional. And we ended up dealing with the actual person they hired for the move as well. They were nice folks, and did a great job as far as packing up. We had an issue with delivery. We moved the move date up for them to accommodate, because they had had a death in the family. But they ended up getting to my son's apartment until 10:15 at night. His neighbor was not happy that a moving company showed up at that late in the evening. But they were tired and exhausted. They did fine as far as getting things moved in.
