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.

Friendly, fast, and professional movers. They showed up on time and handled my things with care. Price was reasonable for an interstate move (Arkansas to Texas). Price was a 1/3 of what I was quoted by two other competitors. I would use MaxForce again.

Pick the Pink Shirt Crew! 100% A++ service! I needed immediate/same-day service. Mike was on the job within 4 hours of initial request. Worked my small job in between two other jobs. Friendly & professional. Mike & crew padded and wrapped large furniture before moving. Communicated in a very timely manner with updates on estimated arrival time. Arrived with a smile, worked quickly & the price was completely right. THANK YOU Mike’s Moving!

After dealing so many folks online that have only one hidden agenda, $$$&$ Mikes Movers did the most outstanding job on moving my things. They were so careful in a professional way, as to not put even one tiny scratch on any of my things wrapping everything in blanket and clear wrap. Our appointment was a 5 pm, but they called me at 3:00 to tell me they had finished a prior move and that they could come right away if I wanted them to. They came promptly at 3:30 pm, and although their normal fee is $95.00 and hour, they didn’t drag around even one iota. They all knew what the next step would be like a true team. And those of you that aren’t familiar with the value of a team working together, call these movers on your next move and witness efficiency. I promise that you won’t be sorry. And they were completely done at 4:30 pm. And, the team was so efficient, they didn’t even break a sweat. Every move they made counted. I can’t say enough to tell y’all how pleased I was with the crew. Although, I only owed them for one hours work, I didn’t hesitate to ask the manager if $200 would be ok. And I was glad to pay them an extra $100. Actually, they did a $300 job, or more, and with complete courtesy. Folks, with the high number of bad businesses out there today, that when done dealing with them, you felt like they trampled over you and stole your money, and folks,,I don’t have to tell you who they are, you already know. And truthfully, credit is due where credit is. I never exaggerate and my promise will always be done. I WOULD’NT HESITATE TO DO BUSINESS WITH THIS BUSINESS AGAIN !!! And, since I’m living here temporarily while my new home is being built outside of Westfork Arkansas, when it’s done, I’ll call this business again. In fact, I’ve already told them that they’ll be doing my move from here to my new home. And, I can relax now and have one more thing not to be concerned about, during this perilous time with the Covid 19 breathing down on us. Thank you so very much My Lord for taking care of me again.

My wife and I were very pleased with the quality of the move. Every piece of furniture was handled with care and meticulously wrapped for protection. My only problem was being an hour and 15 minutes late which really put a kink in our schedule for the rest of the day. But alas, Mike and Dusty worked quickly but carefully to set up the furniture, which required some reassembly, and it came through without a scratch. Mike and Dusty were respectful of surrounding property. They were friendly and worked efficiently and made sure we were satisfied with everything that they delivered. I would use them again.
