Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Jason moved me from surprise to Maricopa and he is the very best independent mover I have ever had. I highly recommend him to anyone moving.

What can I say, our odds we're stacked against us with a timeline to move due to uncontrollable circumstances. Jason and crew jumped in and made it happen. We will be moving again in a year and plan on reaching out and using true move again.

I recently used Moving Hogs to assist with moving to a new home. The guys were very professional, timely, and took pride in their work. They were very efficient with their loading and unloading of my stuff. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone that is looking for movers.

This company was reasonable in their price and flexible in working with my situation. They moved a table for my daughter that I paid for as a gift. They trusted that the money would be there as I promised and even made extra effort to fullfil the job when my daughter didn't hear them at the door (they could have just gone home). The move went smooth with no issue (they were moving a table that had not been moved for approximately 19 years..there really could have been issues).

I highly recommend this company for your moving needs, especially if you need to move at odd hours. I was desperate to find a moving company that would help us in the evening, and the first dozen companies I contacted would not schedule a move after 3pm. So frustrating! Jeff and his team were able to accommodate our needs and did fantastic work! Friendly, polite, professional and reliable. They were efficient but careful with our things and also very honest. There was a small nightstand damaged...hey, these things happen. They immediately brought it to our attention and offered to purchase a replacement or reimburse us the cost of the furniture. I have had movers lie about damaging my things and refuse to pay for it so I really appreciated the professionalism I got from Jeff and his team. Thank you SO MUCH for your help!

First time user of Thumbtack services. I was very impressed with these movers. They were prompt, on time, and courteous. The owner Greg runs a good crew. Wes and Teradon were the moving pros. They wrapped and secured our possessions and delivered them without any problems. I would recommend them and use their services again.

I really wanted to give a 5 star review, first let me say CJ was very nice and personable and a very hard worker. However due to the fact that they totally destroyed a dresser and never said a word and tried to make-shift it back together, and broke a motorized power scooter and never said a word about it and over charged me by an hour I’m not happy about. It will obviously cost me more to replace these two items than what money I saved by using them. Also I still had to go back to the house and move 3 truckloads myself that they did not move for me I did let him know it was a big move and he was not prepared for the size of move I had. Unfortunately I can’t give a 5 star based on personality.

I had to change my moving date, and they were a no show. I called and he said he forgot, but did arrange to come out very early the next morning. I had 8 heavy items Arrived on time, the next day, but had a hard time moving several of the items with the one piece of equipment, they brought. Not very professional but finally got the job done.
