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.

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.

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. 

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.

Great communication and very flexible when we thought our moving state might shift. The team was very efficient and nothing broke throughout the move. Moreover they were generous in helping with unexpected tasks like moving a small camper trailer out from the back yard. Hopefully we aren't moving again soon but if we do, will call Albion!

Renan and his associate were very professional. What makes him different than most movers is that he offers to come to your home to give you an estimate after he has looked at the items that need to be moved. He offers a honest and reasonable estimate and I appreciated that. I will reccomend him to others who need moving assistance.

The movers were quick and efficient, and very professional. They arrived within the window of time provided. The went right to work and finished the job in record time. They were very careful with our furniture and I really appreciated that. They had a rather tight space to deliver to and the spot they delivered from was on the 3rd floor without an elevator. The estimate was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this moving company.

I booked GoGo and it seemed to go very smoothly. Communication was thorough, and he confirmed the booking with me. In fact, the communication was so great I moved my moving day by a whole day just to have them do it. Then the day of, nobody showed up. After 45 minutes of waiting, I messaged to see if there was a delay. They called me to inform me they double booked, and were helping someone else. Apparently because we communicated so much, he forgot to add me to his calendar?! Because they were working the other job they booked, they had nobody else available to help me at the agreed upon time, in fact they were unavailable to help me at all, unless I was able to wait nine and a half hours after the planned start time of the move! This made my whole move entirely more stressful and expensive than it needed to be. I will never ever use them again.

The crew was great and friendly. One little thing though.. they did ask me again and again - what needs to be moved what needs to be moved. I was a little less organized than I could have been and forgot that I had requested wardrobe boxes. I only wish somehow I was reminded of clothes.. but we forgot that part -- it is ok though. Apart from that - great service - no hassle.

Working with Leclair moving was a great experience. Pavel was very prompt to answer questions beforehand. On moving day, Horatio and his crew showed up about 10 minutes early. They were prompt, courteous and professional about wrapping and moving my dressers and super flexible when we had to reroute since there was a hiccup at our second pickup stop. Horatio was very friendly. The guys even proactively assembled my new bed frame even though that wasn't part of the agreed upon service and I didn't request it. Getting a 3 man crew for the price was a great deal and I would definitely use Leclair again. These guys are really easy to work with and super accommodating to last minute requests.

Patrick is incredibly fast and responsive. It took them less than an hour to unload a pretty full Uhaul van of stuff. Would definitely contact Patrick again for another move.
