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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Unprofessional and not courteous. Demands to be paid upfront before even showing up, unlike other moving companies. I ended up cancelling and booked with nicer and more honest moving company, who will not charge me until they show up. I would not recommend.

It was easy to communicate and set up our moving helpers. The 2 guys they sent were amazing polite and hustled the whole time. They were the best mover helpers we had ever had. I highly suggest this company we were very happy with their services.

This young gentlemen, Devin and Manny, were very sweet and professional. Kept me updated throughout the evening about their approximate time of arrival. Were very careful with the piece of furniture they were moving and the price was very affordable. No hidden costs. I recommend their services and will definitely contact them for my next move.

JP moving services was absolutely phenomenal. They moved up our date when we needed, came on time, and worked incredibly hard to successfully get our POD loaded within an even shorter time period than we expected. We feel so fortunate and could not have packed our storage without them!

I thought they were great because they were so fast, but after moving my items out of the storage where Tony's Movers placed them we discovered the damage to my furniture and the boxes marked "fragile, don't place anything on top" were crushed with my deceased Grandma's heirloom glass and crystal treasures inside. Very sad and dissappointing.

Mad Movers did a great job. They responded quickly to my request for a quote, scheduled the work, and arrived on time. Will and Chad worked quickly and were careful with the furniture and the surroundings. Polite and professional. I would certainly use them again.

I bought a couple of very heavy dressers that arrived in freight packaging. They needed to be removed from all the packing and have the legs attached. I also needed the old dressers moved into a different a room. They showed up exactly on time. They were efficient, professional, and friendly guys. Took them just shy of an hour to do everything including the cleanup. I would definitely use them again!

They were wonderful! They were very friendly and courteous, taking much of the stress away that comes with moving....they even took it upon themselves to happily fix a previously broken piece of my dresser, and did a great job! The only thing I wished was that they were on time, although understanding the nature of this job I realize can make it difficult to be right on schedule. Perhaps giving a window of time to customers like other various type companies would help. In spite of, I was so pleased I still gave them a 5 star and will soon be using them again....thanks to the both of you!

Mike and Gabe did an awesome multi-stop pickup job for us. They were prompt, very mindful and careful of our furnishings, and extremely accommodating to my many requests (including an extra last minute stop). They’re very professional, friendly and good humored. The extra details I couldn’t help but notice: they REALLY slowed down for the speed bumps, they asked about their shoes coming into our (Asian) home, and even swiftly helped the owners of our first stop reposition a large curio in their garage after we picked up our dining hutch while I put the glass shelves in my car. I’ve had great experiences with a mover before but DMC takes it to a new level. Thanks again for the amazing help!
