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.

Hired Exclusive movers to help with our move last week and we are so happy we did so. Moving is overwhelming and stressful but the movers really helped to ensure our move was completely smooth. Very responsive, professional, and friendly. They handled our items with care and even helped assemble some furniture we had just ordered. I highly recommend Exclusive Movers and will definitely use again if we need to move.

Impeccable service. After another moving company canceled the day of my move, Dean’s Movers was able to accommodate my move after hours! (11pm-3am!!) Very thankful for their flexible schedule, experienced movers, and work quality. Breakables were properly wrapped, drop off was as smooth as the pick up, and employees were professional and polite. Reasonable price for last minute move. Would DEFINITELY recommend.

The movers were very professional. They arrived on time and all furniture was wrapped and carefully moved. We were given a flat rate and the price was excellent as we had a large house of furniture to move. They were very accommodating as the new house was not accessible right away and they were able to still fit us in their schedule. I would definitely recommend and use Qshark Moving company again.

Call these guys if you are moving. They are GREAT! I will definitely use them again. I needed to move my daughter home after a bad roommate situation. I called and scheduled a move with Qshark Movers. They were fantastic! They arrived on time, they moved quickly, and they even made two stops for us, dropping things off at one location and loading other things form that location to take to a third location. They were friendly, courteous and they even plugged in appliances. The icing on the cake is that they had the best quote and a $10 an hour discount when I paid in cash. Seriously, call them and you will be happy you did!

Frank and Danny moved a 400+ lb treadmill from the 2nd floor to the garage. They had to move a 30" item thru a29" door. They were very creative. They took great care to protect my furnishings and to move everything back to its original location. They were very polite and respectful. I highly recommend them and will use them again.

Ive never hired movers before and had always handled it myself with family or friends. After having to deal with moving out and the holidays, it was easy and professional to book an appointment. They came early, were efficient, and took great care of my items. They were polite and friendly. I highly recommend Qshark Movers ( Alfredo and Ben ) they were kind and efficient.

It went very well. Qshark Moving company were very professional and friendly. They helped me get organized and pack up my things. They were very careful with our items but got things done in a timely manner. Movers took some of the stress out of moving and I enjoyed working with them. They also did a great job setting up the big items in our new home. Nothing was broken or damaged. Their pricing was reasonable and I will definitely recommend them to anyone who is moving.

They were super quick to respond, and were understanding when we had a potential last minute schedule change. Movers showed up on time and were very professional - packing and moving our delicate furniture very safely and quickly. They had to carry heavy boxes and furniture down 1 flight of stairs, and at our new place, up 3 flights in some instances. These guys were excellent and professional, and nothing was damaged during the move. I highly recommend them and would use them again for any future moves.

We had four guys helping us move on moving day. These guys were amazing! They were beyond professional, they worked hard from morning until night. Everything was carefully prepared and moved without one single broken item. Not even one! I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needs help moving. The guys were friendly and they worked extremely hard. They helped us set up everything in our new home and were careful to ask where everything went. They didn’t even get frustrated with me when I had them move the same mattress three different times because I couldn’t decide what room it was for. I was so tired I couldn’t remember. 😆 I can’t say enough good things about them. We were happy to buy them lunch and dinner. I would be happy to be a reference for this company anytime. They even moved about ten large plants for me with no damage to my plants. We were very happy with Shift It Moving Company.

11/10. Would hire again! Rigo and Andrew was our movers today! They came and greet me ahead of my scheduled time. They are both professional and very fast. They were also careful of our stuff. Me and my wife never had a problem with our movers, and they actually helped us dumped our big box of trash. I highly recommend Local Trucks! Specially when you are moving within Orange County. They gave me a very good rate and they really beat others! Hope to have them again the next time we move.

Scott and Steve were incredible! They went above and beyond what was expected and were very professional during the entire move. They got my entire apartment moved to my new apartment on the 3rd floor with no elevator without complaint or slowing! No hidden fees or anything. Tony, the manager, even called in the middle of the visit to check on how it was going. If you are looking to get any size home moved, I 100% recommend these guys!
