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.

Great patience. The sofa I needed moved was difficult to disassemble, but the team persevered and got it moved.

Squeezed me in at the end of the month on short notice. Kept the same bid regardless of date of move. Both men hustled to get my move completed within the bid time. They were efficient and followed direction. My move was completed and exceeded my expectations due to the commitment of the two men representing Momentum Movers AZ. I would recommend this company to anyone who wanted to experience professionalism in moving. An excellent ending to all the hard work of preparation required for moving.

Mastermind Moving were a tremendous help during our move. Jim & Tim are strong hard working movers. We couldn't of done it without them!! Moving from a large two story house into another large two story house. Most of our large furniture went up stairs. They had extremely positive attitudes and were very careful with our belongings. They worked with us on our budget and made sure we were completely comfortable with the rate. I would highly recommend Mastermind Moving for your moving needs. Jose was very quick to send correspondence and make sure the move went smoothly. Thanks Mastermind Moving, job well done!!

I cannot say enough good things about Jason and this company! They are true professionals and I was blown away by their work ethic. We had tons of stuff to move out (2,661 sqft, 2 story house) and they jumped right on it without batting an eyelash, and moved it all out in good timing, too. They were so accommodating and willing to do whatever they could to help us. This was my first time using a moving company and I’m glad to have stumbled upon True Move!! It truly was a seamless move and a great first time experience for us!!

I had originally booked three movers for my move, but only two showed up, which is why I dropped to 4 stars - but both guys that came were absolutely amazing, and very personable and worked super hard! They were very conscious of our walls and were seriously the best movers we have ever had. Very happy and thank you!

I sold my home and needed help moving things to a storage unit. I found the rates with Momentum Movers to be very reasonable, even with three movers on a Sunday. They were very careful not damaging anything in my home (put padding along the stair railings) and very cautious when moving things around corners.....even an elliptical machine. Not only were they efficient they were fun. It seemed they enjoyed their job and kidded around with each other. They were very careful when unloading my things into the storage unit as well as making certain items were available to me when needed (e.g., a dresser to put clothes in towards the front of the storage unit). I wouldn't hesitate recommending Momentum Movers to anyone.

Josh and his guy were phenomenal. They moved three heavy pieces of furniture and over 70 boxes plus the usual furniture is less than 5 hours. They took care of everything. I would definitely recommend him and will always use him when moving in the future.

Had a great experience with this company. Wasn’t an easy move- I moved from third floor to third floor and had a lot of boxes/furniture. The guys took everything in stride and made sure I had an easy transition to my new apartment. When I thought I lost an item they went out of their way to make sure I had all my things. Thanks for making an unbearable experience comforting! Will be sure to use again on my next move😊

They showed up 2 hours late, it was supposed to be 2 movers and the last minute I ok'd 3 people. They moved 1200 sq ft to another 1200 sq ft. The one guy was moving the stuff the other guy stayed at the truck, was on the phone. It took 2.5 hours to get the truck loaded, keep in mind 2 dressers 4 nightstands and a bunch of boxes. It took them over an hour to get to the new place because they said they were hungry, so that is fine. They went to a restaurant in the middle of the move sat down and ate. They said they would knock a half hour off the move. Now they show up after eating and proceed to ask me if they can keep myself overnight to get a third guy. It is now 8.20pm and your telling me I have to wait another morning but again the guy doing all the talking is really not moving stuff the other guy is. now comes payment, they charged me for 6.5 hours, after quoting me for 4 and had the balls to ask for a tip. They played me bogus.
