Some list items are: submit a change of address, information on what to do the day of the move and how to prepare for the delivery of your belongings.

The company supplies moving materials at a low cost, like cushioned packing materials, boxes, paper wrap, tape and more.

Packers arrive at your home or office with all necessary packing materials and create a checklist of your items. This list is used to help you get ready for the move without losing, forgetting or breaking anything.

If you are more of a do-it-yourself packer, Moving APT can provide the correct packing materials at a discount compared to retail stores.

Moving APT Costs

Moving APT provides flat rate quotes that cover tolls, taxes, fuel and other costs, so you know upfront what you’ll pay the mover. Many variables affect the cost of moving, like the miles between origin and destination and the time of year.

You’ll find a moving quote tool on the Moving APT website. Enter the location you are moving to and from, your name, phone number, email and move date to get an estimate. That said, our experience with the quote tool was confusing as it generated the same cost for very different trips, then told us someone would be in touch with a quote. You can get an idea for the cost of your move in our price chart above, but getting a more precise quote requires calling to speak to a Moving APT representative.

Average Moving APT Costs
Home Local Moves Long-Distance Moves
Studio or 1-bedroom apartment $200 to $500 $1,440 to $2,500
2-bedroom apartment $400 to $700 $4,000 to $4,800
3-bedroom house $560 to $1,000 $7,200
4-bedroom house $800 to $2,000+ Up to $16,000

How to Hire Moving APT

Call a Moving APT representative to explain all the details needed for your move, and the rep will go to work to find the best mover for your project. The final quote is itemized for transparency, and you’ll sign off on it if you want to seal the deal.

Moving APT Complaints

The vast majority of Moving APT reviews post on MyMovingReviews were from delighted customers. The few complaints had to do with the trucking companies and not Moving APT, and Moving APT responded to explain how they were providing assistance to the customer after the move. Some of the negative reviews appear to be fabricated. Moving APT received only a C rating from the Better Business Bureau. The BBB says this rating is due to Moving APT not resolving the underlying problem causing complaints, yet over 200 consumer reviews on the BBB site average out to 5 out of 5 stars. The company rates 8.4 out of 10 from ConsumersAdvocate with 4 out of 5 stars from customers who note appreciation for the courteous representatives and competitive rates.

Moving APT Q&A

  • Can Moving APT track my shipment?

    Your customer service representative can track your shipment and let you know where your belongings are at any time, just call.

  • How do I know Moving APT’s online quote is accurate?

    Moving companies provide a cost estimate via online quote tools as a baseline. You still need to speak to the company for a more accurate quote based on the items you need to move. No two offices or households are the same, and you’ll see your final cost after a Moving APT representative comes to your home or business to see what needs to go on the moving truck.

  • What information do I need to have on hand before calling Moving APT for a quote?

    Being prepared in advance of placing a call for a quote saves time. Moving APT needs to know the following to give you an estimate for the cost of your move:

    • The addresses you’re moving to and from
    • A room-by-room general list of what you need to be moved (remember the basement, garage and outbuildings)
    • If you want packing service
    • If you need packing supplies
    • Expected move date
  • I can’t take delivery at my new location of everything I’m moving. Can Moving APT provide storage?

    Yes, Moving APT can arrange to store your items for up to 30 days, usually at no additional charge.

  • I have an extra car and no one to drive it to my new location. Can Moving APT help?

    Moving APT has contacts with car shipping companies and will work out the most cost-effective and safe way to transport your vehicle.

Conclusion

Moving APT offers many unique options to take the stress of moving off the customer’s shoulders. With years of experience and access to a vast network of movers, Moving APT representatives have the resources to design relocation plans that are both cost-effective and hassle-free.

It's November 1st. The moving company they brokered picked up my things on October 6th. I'm almost 1 full month of not having my things. I can't get in touch with the moving company, Moving APT can't get in touch with them. No one has any answers for me.

I don't know when I'm getting my things. I do not want others to go through what I'm going through right now, so I will be leaving a review on as many websites as I can find. Find a reputable moving company, not a broker. Or at the very least, find a broker that carefully vets their moving companies.

I do know one thing is for certain after this experience: I will never use another moving company again. I will do it all myself. That would have been a lot less stressful than this has been.

I should have done more research into this company, I would have found an alarming number of complaints hidden under their 4.2 star rating.

Melanie and I would like to extend our very warmest thanks to Moving APT for the great job they did to move us out and in throughout this time. It was very easy.

From the first guy we spoke with over the phone to the crew that moved us, they were all very professional and helpful. We are glad we found such an amazing mover after trying so many others.

I don't usually review experiences but feel as though I need to warn others of our misfortunes with this company called Moving APT. The sales staff are your sweet talkers but once you're past this phase, plan to receive ZERO customer support. This team promised a max of 3 weeks not including weekends/holidays to do a cross country move...it is currently week 6 and I have little to no expectations that our belongings will ever be delivered to us.

We would honestly have been better off burning all of our things than giving this responsibility over to this company. Run away as fast as you can and stay clear of them if you value anything at all. Truly disappointed and enraged by all of their deceitfulness and lack of competence.

I called Moving apt last min to set up a move for the next day because the local mover I booked didn't show up, They make it very easy for me starting from the sales rep to the operation representative that confirm with me what time the driver and truck will show up. The next day come crew arrives on time, they pack and load my 2 bedrooms in 3 hours!! They were very nice and did a great job, not sure what I would do without there help and I deeply regret I haven't booked with them from the first place!!! I would have saved myself unnecessary stress and worries. I'll highly recommend them to anyone whos looking for movers.
