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.

Moving is a stressful, cumbersome task. Finding professional, reputable movers that won't over charge you? Good luck! SO so glad I found the ThumbTack app. I chose a couple of local movers for quotes and decided on Gold Rush. Chris and Oscar were great! Chris kept in touch with me over the two weeks leading up to the move and they arrived when they said they would. I didn't have a big move but it came with a couple of challenges. The guys tackled the move head on with no worries. They did an amazing job at an amazing price! Thanks a bunch Chris and Oscar. You guys ROCK😎

This was my first time hiring movers and Tony's guys were great! Tony was very helpful with scheduling movers with less than 24 hours notice. His guys were on time and fully prepared (moving pads, crates, dollies, etc) with a large truck. They were incredibly fast (and safe), getting the job done so much faster than if I had done it myself.

I was extremely pleased with Tony’s moving service. Tony was very professional and courteous from the first phone conversation along with his follow-up on every step of the job. His pricing was very reasonable and there were no hidden charges. I was moving a few pieces of my mother’s furniture to an assisted living home and Tony’s crew was very punctual and efficient. I would definitely hire Tony’s Delivery and Labor again!

I had a great experience with Tony and his team. Before we confirmed the job my phone conversations were very helpful and Tony was very thorough. Fast forward to moving day. Tony’s team was great and worked really hard to get my out of my place quickly. Everyone was very cheery. Things were packed carefully and furniture was shrink wrapped. We did a walk thru of apt to make sure I had gotten everything out and then once the move was done we did a walkthru to make sure everything had been delivered. I would use Tony and his team again!

My word how grateful are we for Steven and Jennifer!!! I’ll they were phenomenal! Steven is the hardest working human ALIVE! And wow can he pack a truck! Made it so we only had to take on trip and all our furniture is pristine! Jennifer is the sweetest, strongest most pleasant woman and I’m so glad she was here to help us. She genuinely loved helping and wow were they a smooth team! I’ve already recommended Tony’s to two of our friends who are moving this summer and I’m so confident they’ll be JUST as pleased. Thank you Tony for stopping by and treating your team with a little encouragement and lunch and thank you to Steven and Jennifer for making our move FUN!

These guys packed up and unloaded in 3 hours. Great and friendly guys and worked hard to keep things on schedule and as easy as possible. Tony was also great in coordinating. Called day before, morning of and right after to check in. Hopefully we won't need to move anytime soon, bit will keep them in mind.

There was confusion over my order which was to move a large 2 bedroom apartment from Brea to northern CA. Despite this confusion, Mario and his crew pitched in and managed much more work than anticipated. Nothing broken, nothing lost. Courteous, funny and knowledgeable staff worked hard to get the job done. Mario is justifiably proud of his company and makes sure his customers pleased with his work. Highly recommended

Tony's delivery and Labor Service is a small family-owned company that was on time, very professional and took very good care of my belongings and furniture. You could tell they have lots of experience. They pad wrapped and shrink wrapped our furniture to protect it. They put down blankets to protect the wood floors and stairs. I am happy with their team. When they realized that we would need more than 2 people, 2 more people showed up later to help. The team was very friendly and made sure I knew what was going on throughout the process. They saved us a lot of money and time with how difficult the move was. We had an apartment with a ton of weird stairs and a mega ton of stuff that needed to go and they amazing figured out a way and got it done super quick. They were super helpful with taking apart and reassembling some of the furniture. We wouldn't have been able to finish the move in one day if they hadn't been there. You will feel comfortable referring them to their friends and family and they are highly-rated on Thumbtack.
