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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Sean and his team were professionals from my first communication to the last piece of furniture. Momentum Movers live up to their names because these guys hustle! I used this company for a local Phoenix move. I will recommend anyone looking for a good moving company to use them. I began the moving process, dreading trying to find a moving company. Momentum Movers took away all of my anxiousness by their professionalism and easiness to work with. My recommendation is to look no further, and hire these guys!

Trailblazin Movers provided excellent service! I needed a washer and dryer moved to the 2nd floor immediately. Trailblazin Movers responded promptly, communicated professionally and provided a very reasonable quote! Once we locked down all of details, they arrived on time and got right to work. Finished the job and provided superb customer service! I would recommend Trailblazin Movers for all your moving needs and will definitely be using them in future!

Jason and his crew did a great job with my move. They met all my expectations and were very courteous during the entire 7 hours job. And while I have no plans to ever move again, should the need arise, I will surely call Master Moving & Handyman Services!

My move was seamless. The guys showed up exactly on time, did a quick walkthrough and got to work! I literally turned around and half of the stuff was already on the truck. When we got to the new place, they moved everything in without an issue. It was a seamless experience for me. I definitely recommend them, and will use them again for any future moves!

I hired movers to help with the heavy stuff because of an auto accident I was in a few days prior to moving day. I was nervous trusting someone else moving my possessions but the 2 man crew sent to my house were amazing. I seriously was in ahhhh watching how quickly they worked. They were very gentle with everything and I am not sure I saw them take a 5 second break. What would of taken me 3-4 hours they did in 2. The company and the movers were nothing short of "THE BEST". I would recommend them to any one.

Vince, Mike and Tarradon were right on time, very efficient and the nicest and hardest working men I've encountered in my many moves. They never complained, were so polite and handled my furniture and boxes with care. I would recommend Precious Possessions to anyone looking for a great moving experience. They even put down red carpet runners in the house to avoid misty rain outside being tracked in. These men are not your typical hired for the day movers, they all have years of experience, which made this stressful day actually enjoyable.

From the beginning when Jim gave me a reasonable quote and didn’t low ball me to get my business, all the way thru to the end, Hogan’s Moving was a awesome! It was pouring down the rain the entire time of my move, yet Jerry and Kevin got everything done very quickly, didn’t stretch out the time so they could charge me more, and kept my furniture and boxes mostly dry (considering the rain). They were fast, helpful, and went above and beyond. I highly recommend!

Movers were a little late getting to my apartment, but they made up for it! Mike, the owner, responded right away when I requested their ETA and once they showed up they got right to work! I was shocked at how quickly they got everything loaded into their truck and to my new place (approximately 20 minutes away). I moved into a third story apartment and that didn’t slow down the crew either! It was great service and just what I needed- and all in my budget! I would recommend and hire this company again.
