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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Perfect and spot on experience of moving. Very quick yet very careful with all my furniture. All my worries about moving vanished pretty quickly. We were able to stop by various drop off locations too. Would certainly recommend Mario and his crew to anyone needing moving help! :)

The moving team did an amazing job. They were hardworking, honest, professional, and extremely patient. Every piece of furniture and every box is treated like a puzzle that they expertly load on the truck. I would recommend this company and its crew to anyone moving and looking for a team they can rely on and trust. Thanks guys for helping make our move less stressful!

100% yes! I received a quick response to my request for a quote with the day and time I needed accepted. Aleks provided professional friendly service; on time, with the correct equipment to safely move my piano, and done quickly. After moving the piano 60 miles for me he took the time to provide me with names and numbers of piano tuners in my area which was service above and beyond what I expected. I would encourage anyone that needs to move a piano to contact Alek's Piano Movers!

Royal Moving was easy to work with. What I didn't like so much was the size of the truck. The truck barely fit all of the items from my small 1,000 square foot home, so much to the point where they completely filled it up and had to strap my mattress to the back of the truck. It was raining the day I moved so I was concerned that my mattress was going to get soaking wet, even though they did wrap it with one layer of stretch wrap. The movers smoked cigarettes so I was concerned some of my furniture would smell like smoke, luckily it didn't.

I had to move a fridge from OC to LA and Local Trucks offered me a decent price. Communicating with them on the app was very easy and they responded right away. After 2 other movers cancelled last minute on me, I booked with Local Trucks and they accommodated my requested date. They even arrived early, which was perfect since I was on a time crunch, and got the job done very efficiently.

Mario, George & Oscar were on time, fast, courteous and professional. They loaded my 3 bedroom house into the truck in 1-1/2 hours and unloading was just a tad longer. No damaged property, no issues at all. I highly recommend and I will use them again on my next move. Gary D

I’m giving a bad review because they forgot to show up to our scheduled appointment on the morning of my move. I even communicated with them the day before and they confirmed that they would show up the next day at a certain time. I waited and waited, they never came, and when they finally called me back they told me that they seemed to have “gotten the dates mixed up”. How can this be used as an excuse?? I clearly communicated with them THE DAY BEFORE and they even confirmed with me through text. Very unprofessional. Even though they offered to come within the next hour, I decided that it wasn’t worth it and I didn’t want to move forward with this company so I had to book a different company very last minute. If you are considering this company, I highly suggest that you MAKE SURE that they understand the scheduled time and call them a hour before their arrival to avoid the same “confusion” I had to deal with.

We scheduled a pick up for mainly large items. Tony and his guys showed up on time and they were professional. We had a scheduling issue that conflicted with one of the items on our end, and Tony went above and beyond to make sure our move was done with no hassle. Tony’s guys were professional, and very accommodating to us. I will definitely recommend Tony’s delivery services to anyone looking for this type of service. Thanks again Tony!
