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.

All You Need Moving LLC moved us from our old apartment to a new apartment. They did an excellent job from wrapping all of the items that were needed to disassembling and reassembling a bed. We also had a large mirror that was moved with no damage. I would recommend anyone who needed movers to use All You Need Moving.

Had a great experience with these movers. Had a little hiccup at first with the actual time they were supposed to arrive but they did their best to arrive as soon as possible, and even brought a third mover to help. Was happy about overall experience and these movers helped our move with being less stressful.

I have moved more than 30 times in my life, and this was one of the easiest best moves I've had! Dino and Kevin were exceptional - they were fast, efficient, and completely professional. They never stopped moving while loading or unloading until the job was done! I highly recommend this company for your next move!

The two movers who came and did our move were incredible. We had a BIG 3 bedroom house move. They were on time, hard working, polite, and careful with all of our belongings. This was our first time using movers and we would use this company again if needed. Thank you for all your hard work!!

I thought Movers 4 hire did an exceptional job. They were able to accommodate and finish moving all my stuff in under 4 hours. The price for moving in these extreme heat conditions was well worth it. I would definitely recommend them.

This moving team was fantastic. They were professional and worked for many hours to get the job done right. I've never had such a pleasant moving experience. I would highly recommend POG. When another customer was running behind, they sent that moving team to help at my house. When the other customer was ready, the extra moving team left to complete the other move. The three guys who moved me were very careful with my belongings and even helped me figure out how to pack the last few difficult items. When we arrived at the new house, they helped arrange all the furniture, humored me when I changed my mind about a couple of placements, and even moved items that were already in the house to other spots to make room for the furniture I wanted to place there. Highly recommend!

Exactly on time in the morning, which was a great start to a usually stressful moving day experience. The workers were very thorough and careful with furniture wrapping, nothing was broken. Overall a great job at moving, except for two areas. Our total move time was 4.5 hours, whereas most quotes I received were for 2. Because of this, we wound up paying more than we initially expected. There was also a bit of door and doorway damage that was incurred due to a heavy piece of workout equipment being moved into a room. It was rather large and a tight space to be moved, but it still happened.

We were thrilled to find a mover on short notice to help with moving some appliances between rental properties. However, the team was 45 minutes late which really threw off our schedule for the day. The moving work was done appropriately though, and everything arrived in the same condition as it was picked up.
