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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Mike's moving company was both extremely professional and kind. They performed an exemplary move. In fact Mike brouht me boxes and tape at no charge to assist me in packing. I would recommend Mike's moving company to anybody and everybody I know. They took care of my possessions as if they were their own. On top of that the price was extremely reasonable. Do not make the mistake of passing Mike's Moving company you'll regret it if you do.

We expected professional movers. Not an open small wooden pull cart. This does not seem ideal for moves and doesn't hold enough. There is no protection from weather. Mom and son worked hard but we felt we had to pitch in and help since Mom is a small older woman. We wanted actual movers (big guys with muscles that can handle all the lifting) with license and a real moving van.for protection. We did not get professionals. Sweetpeas mostly does cleaning. They have a homemade wooden trailer looks like would work for a hay ride? I hope they are blessed enough to one day a real moving van and get a real license to move. We were very uneasy about this. We overpaid on 1/2 a job. I thought Thumbtack would only put real professionals on their lists. That should be a requirement. I am not sure Thumbtack is the way I'll go next time.

Moving from Arkansas to Oregon from a house we lived in for 10 years. We got rid of a lot of stuff, but there was still a lot of stuff. Thomas had excellent help on both sides of the move and made sure our things were handled carefully. He was very easy to work with and entirely pleasant. We have had some bad experiences with movers but never an all around great one until now. There were lower bids yes, but We Haul Moving is worth the extra money. We would absolutely hire him again.

Professional, friendly movers. They arrived on time, worked quickly, and handled my fragile items with care. More so, when Mike found out my car had broken down he offered to give me a ride and even towed my car to the new place. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them for my next move!

Thomas and his team did a fantastic job with moving my furniture from one apartment to another. They were quick. I had a request to drop of at multiple locations in the Fayetteville area and they had no problem to do so. Overall, I was satisfied with my experience.

Thomas was impressive. Not a single scratch on a wall or piece of furniture. We moved weeks before having a baby. They took all the work out of the process. I felt like I had a couple friends helping me do the job. They cared for my belonging like I would have.

Awesome experience. They made a long-distance move from Fayetteville, AR to Nashville, TN so much smoother than it would have been without their help. Loading and unloading both went by really quickly, and they took good care of our belongings. These guys make a great team and get things done really efficiently!

Well this is a tough one. The dispatcher got the date wrong, but once hearing I was on a strict timeline, he offered to do what he could. He showed up, I showed him all that needed to be moved, marked each piece. He saw all of that plus he saw my steep and relatively long driveway. He even expressed concern about the size of truck that could make it up the driveway. Well, they showed up the next day with the biggest truck they could get, far bigger than the job needed and couldn’t get up the driveway. So they started to load, carrying everything down the driveway to the truck, thus each trip was taking twice as long as needed. Which I had to pay for. They ran out of time, so they passed me off to another company to get the job done, but didn’t tell the other company to use a smaller truck. So you guessed it, the next day I paid ANOTHER truck fee, a huge truck showed up and trips were taking twice as long as needed carrying stuff down the hill. I finally stopped the second company form loading, it would have cost a fortune to continue and I already had blown my moving budget. In all, it was twice as expensive as it should have been, I paid for two trucks where one smaller one would have sufficed, and only got about 2/3 of the stuff out of my house. Wife is extremely unhappy that the job did not get done while she was out of town. I kept hoping Four points would come back to me with an offer to finish the job or make it up to me somehow, but no. I will give them credit, they did try to accommodate after getting the date wrong, but an unfinished expensive job is still an unfinished expensive job. They tried their best, I guess their best was simply not good enough.
