Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can I use digital payments to pay for moving services?

Most local moving companies are likely to accept some form of digital payment. Particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are likely to conduct transactions through platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and more. 

To ensure the mover accepts a platform you can use, you can peruse the mover’s online profile and see what is listed there. You can also ask the mover about payment policies during a consultation call.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you’re trying to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure to use digital tools to avoid exposure. When searching for movers online, ask if they’d be willing to do a video chat to assess the size of your move. This will be in place of the typical “walk-through” they perform, and they may be able to give you a price quote. You can also discuss safe strategies for completing the job during your call or video chat.

How can I find out if a mover is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Your local city or state’s government website is a great resource if you’re trying to figure out whether a mover is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a source of national guidelines, visit the CISA website’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. On this page, you’ll find 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors. But note that some -- not all --  jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Does a mover need to enter my home?

A mover will likely need to enter your home -- unless you’ve placed all of your belongings outside beforehand. To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, you might to consider keeping all (or most) of the work outside and/or having at-risk individuals leave the house while the movers work. 

You can minimize exposure by doing a preliminary walk-through by video call instead of in person. Discuss your options with the top movers near you before hiring one.

Do movers offer remote or virtual services?

Movers generally need to be present to do their job. But if you come across a mover’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, you can contact them to see what those services include. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a mover when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a mover, consider making adjustments to accommodate current guidelines. This may involve staying outside while the mover works inside your home or letting the mover handle only parts of the move.

It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines while performing any service work. For example, do not make physical contact with the movers, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.

 

 

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.

Can you move furniture by yourself?

You might be able to move smaller items like nightstands, small desks, chairs and small tables by yourself. However, it’s best to get a professional mover near you to move larger items such as couches, dressers, armoires and televisions. 

If you do decide to move furniture by yourself, carefully lift and lower items and take your time.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

Thomas and his team are absolutely fabulous! Thomas followed up.prior to the move to ensure we were still on schedule for the day and time. They were prompt and kept moving the entire move (6 hours). I had some very heavy furniture that had to go up stairs and they took a extreme care. They put all furniture together and moved furniture around until I determined what looked best. If I move again there is no question who will do the move! Thank you guys for a fantastic job!!!

The men of We Haul Moving arrived on time and worked non stop until the job was complete. Despite their reservations about some of my furnishings, everything arrived intact. Most impressive is that they were able to move my weight machine and treadmill to the second floor. As I told them, if I were to move again, I would call them, but I don't plan to move for another decade.

Short move! I had suggested using 2 days to move. After they came and looked at what needed to be moved I was assured it could be done in 1 day. They arrived on time yet after just 2 hours they told me if they didn't finish in 1 day they would come back the next day. Unfortunately that wasn't an option we had to be moved and out of the house and have it cleaned that day. They did continue to work into the late night to get everything moved yet there were something's that I expected them to do that didn't get done as they moved us into the new home. Such as mirrors they took off dressers to be put back on. I had also marked some boxes clearly that we would need in the house before others. I had asked them to be grouped together which didn't happen. We are greatful that we got moved yet disappointed with their performance.

They were respectful and caring. Mike’s Moving without a doubt, have absolutely an attention to detail. I’ve hired movers at one time and had a bad experience. Mike’s movers took away all my concerns. They took care of us as if we were their family. They wrap my furniture with extra padding and made sure all my items were moved per my instructions. Mike, Jeff and Chino our family is blessed having known you all. Keep up the great work.

I highly recommend Mike's Moving. I ended up needing help last minute and contacted Mike on a Saturday and he was able to get us 2 movers the next day. Marquis and Dante were amazing movers. Marquis is a Tetris master. When we told him we were paying per foot for the trailer, he was able to fit all of our stuff in 10 feet. We were amazed. They were both friendly and professional. It was all loaded securely and well ratchet strapped. All in 2 hours! Thank you Mike, Marquis, and Dante. Highly recommend.

Three workers who were competent, fast, thorough, gentle with belongings. The bill was far too small, I bumped it up where it needed to be. I highly recommend that you use Thomas for your next move.

On Sunday, I reserved a nine AM Friday spot. At 9:30 I called and asked for an update. They said someone should be there “within the hour.” They weren’t there at eleven. I had to call about four times to get an answer this tjme, and again told me someone was on their way. This went on and on all day. At one point they said they were five minutes away. 30 minutes later they still weren’t there. At 3:30 I gave up. I had to pay $200 extra to get another mover the next day, and didn’t get to spend that day with my kids like I had planned, all because of this awful company. At one point they told me I “wasn’t their only customer.” Yeah, I know, that’s why I made a reservation a week in advance. These people are the worst. They never showed up and they lied all day.
