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.

Jason made me feel at ease from the first time I spoke with him and throughout my move. He and his crew were outstanding! I highly recommend them as they were on-time, professional, treated my belongings like they would treat their own, and they offered support to me the entire move as it was a stressful time. I've moved cross country several times, and I have moved within PHX a couple of times and have hired movers to move my kids several times....These guys are by far the best movers I have ever hired. The value they offer is fantastic.

What I thought was a great experience turned into a nightmare after the movers left. My washer/dryer and refrigerator were not hooked up like I asked. There were parts to my brand new still in the box refrigerator that the movers claimed they couldn’t locate so they were unable to hook it up. I then had to go a buy another part so I could connect the fridge myself. I later found this brand new water line, that was previously attached to the refrigerator before it was moved, in some random box in my garage. (I didn’t pack the box). There was absolutely nothing wrong with the water lines/piping for my washer/dryer as to why they were not connected. The movers moved as slow as possible once they arrived at my new house to drive up the cost of the move. I moved from a 900 sq ft apartment into house. And I gave away most of my furniture prior to move and only had a bed, dresser, refrigerator and medium and a few large boxes and this move took over 5 hours. Unless you want to pay 700 to move 7 miles down the street, I do not recommend. Oh and they were late too.

This crew showed up on time, took care with our possessions and both the home we moved from and to. Professionalism is the best word to describe Momentum Moving hands down. As for value, they had no ups, extras or surprises and were a TON less than the "Nationwide" corporate moving companies. Momentum is local and they treat you with the utmost respect.

This was the first of three moves. While floors are being renovated in phases, furniture is going into a driveway storage pod. Then the pod is emptied and refilled until all the rooms are completed. Dignity Moving worked fast but carefully. I'm hiring them for the next two phases. Nice people to work with!!!

I had jim and kev come out and help me move some heavy furniture upstairs and in the house for me. They showed up on time and they moved super fast me and my hubby was very impressed! It only took them an hour to move 10 heavy items! I didn’t expect them to be that amazing but they sure where. I did have to pay the three hour minimum which kinda sucked but they deserved it for sure! Thank u guys for ur help.

Absolutely amazing! The owner was great at managing my expectations, the crew was VERY helpful, thoughtful, quick and never complained once! I had them moved my mothers items two days later from storage into her new home and she has moved all over the country many times and exclaimed how they were efficient and effective, as well as never complaining with a 10 1/2 hour day. I would highly recommend using Precious Possessions Moving!

Awesome experience with Mastermind. Jose, Jim, and Tim were very thorough and dedicated to the end of the moving process. They took their time to ensure fragile items were wrapped appropriately. Nothing was damaged. It was an overwhelming process as most moves are, but hiring Mastermind took a huge weight off. Thank you so much!

Absolutely hands down 5 star rating. Super knowledgable, professional and if you are even thinking about moving a pool table- you want them to move it! They did it in the rain and took extra steps to make sure the table was totally protected. They were super responsive and an absolute joy to work with. Totall recommend.
