Here to There Movers is an Indiana moving company that offers local, intrastate, and limited long-distance moving services. The company focuses on loading, transporting, and unloading your items. But it also offers packing, disposal, and other services.

Overall score: 5/10

Expect above-average hourly rates on top of the usual moving company fees. Here to There Movers won’t break the bank, but it’s not a budget mover either.

Customers report very bad experiences with Here to There Movers. Complaints range from overcharging to theft to abandonment mid-move.

Here to There Movers has proper registration and insurance. But intrastate movers like Here to There aren't required to report as much safety data as larger interstate carriers, so we had less information to check here.

Bottom line: We suggest avoiding Here to There Movers because of its above-average prices and terrible customer reviews. Stick with a moving company you can trust with your precious belongings. As you’ll see in our Here to There Movers review, this Indiana moving service is not a great option.

Instead, work with a moving broker to get personalized recommendations for trusted movers. That way you can compare quotes (and reputations) to find the best mover for your specific needs.

Here to There Movers: In-Depth Breakdown

Value: 5/10

Here to There Movers isn’t the most affordable mover, but it is up front with its pricing. (Most big movers, like Mayflower Moving, rely on customized quotes and don’t list any prices.)

Hiring two movers from Here to There Movers will cost you $127 per hour ― higher than HomeAdvisor’s typical range of $50–100 per hour. Hiring four movers from Here to There costs $254 per hour, much higher than HomeAdvisor’s range of $100–200.

Aside from the hourly fees, Here to There Movers charges typical fees. These include a truck fee, booking fee, credit card processing fee (4%), and cancellation fees. You’ll also have to pay overtime fees for moves after 6 p.m. and on weekends, including Friday.

Prices vary a bit by location. For example, Here to There Indianapolis, charges $129 per hour for two men, with a four-hour minimum. But Here to There Fort Wayne charges $127 with a two-hour minimum.

All Here to There Movers locations, though, charge more than HomeAdvisor’s national averages.

⚡️Quick tip: Moving quotes are generally hyper-custom and case-specific, so what you see advertised on company websites isn’t always what you get. We recommend reaching out to an independent moving broker to request one or more quotes so you can compare options and get the best fit and value.

Customer Experience: 3/10

Don’t expect to enjoy your move with Here to There Movers. It gets pretty cruddy customer reviews overall.

For instance, take its Yelp reviews (an average of 1.5 out of 5 stars). In the dozens of negative reviews we read, customer after customer accused Here to There Movers of issues like:

  • Not showing up for a scheduled move
  • Overcharging for services
  • Failing to complete moves
  • Breaking items
  • Stealing items
  • Refusing to pay for damages

That’s in addition to complaints of long smoke breaks and move times, as well as rude customer service.

Not everyone has a terrible experience with Here to There Movers. It manages to earn 3 out of 5 stars on Google, and quite a few customers report having a perfectly fine move with Here to There Movers. But we also saw several reviews in which customers say their first and second moves were fine but later moves were terrible.

At any rate, Here to There Movers gets enough negative reviews (with pretty serious complaints) that we’d be very cautious about using its services.

Credibility: 7/10

Here to There Movers is registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT), and it does carry active insurance.

The U.S. DOT doesn’t have a safety rating for Here to There Movers. This is likely because the company mostly does intrastate instead of interstate moves. It only has three offices in Indiana, which makes it even smaller than regional companies, like Motivated Movers.

But, the U.S. DOT has no record of any crashes for Here to There Movers in the past 24 months, which is a good sign.

The U.S. DOT also doesn’t have any recent complaints against Here to There Movers. Though only complaints made to the National Consumer Complaint Database show up on the U.S. DOT’s records. So a lack of complaints doesn’t mean customers are happy ― it may just mean they’re complaining somewhere else (like Here to There’s Better Business Bureau profile).
