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.

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’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. 

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 do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

We were extremely pleased with Man and a Van movers. They showed up when they said they would; very polite and professional; and extremely careful moving the heavy cabinets, which involved going up stairs, navigating a hairpin turn. We highly recommend Man and a Van movers!

From requesting a moving date until payment, I had a great experience. They were very flexible with multiple date/time changes, with quick response time. The guys were punctual and handled all belongings with care. Definitely made this move less stressful! As an experienced mover, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!

I’m very pleased with our experience with Inception Moving. I had an urgent job that needed to be done quickly. While other moving companies on this site responded to my request asking to call them for an estimate or had complicated fee structures, Inception Moving responded immediately with an hourly flat rate and a time that they could come. The people who came to our house called a couple times to get more details about the job. They were very responsive, friendly and seemed genuinely interested in being as helpful as possible. They conducted the work with the same level of efficiency, speed and friendly helpfulness. I’ll definitely call them again next time I need help moving things. Thanks, Inception Movers!

Please send experienced and knowledable people who can assemble beds with a move of a household. If four people are requested, then four people should be there. The move took too long and the overall experience was really bad. The guys worked hard but lacked experience for household move. I have a lot of spare parts left from the assembly of my beds. Don't feel safe sleeping on them. Nails were left all over the house.☹️

WARNING... DO NOT USE "FULL TIME MOVERS"!!!! I scheduled an appointment to move on Saturday 10/10/15 at 11AM (today) and have not so much as received a phone call or status from anyone at Full Time Movers. It is now 2.5 hours later, and I have left voicemails, text messages and sent emails with no response. I made the mistake of relying on this company... sitting here with my boxes packed, after working through the night to ensure I was prepared for the movers. It has been a total waste of my day and recked my weekend entirely. I strongly suggest that you stay clear from this company which is VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. Also, I directly texted/email/called Evan (my contact) as well and he did not respond to my messages. This is truly the most awful experience with any business that I have encountered... I also contacted a "Thumbtack" representative for assistance with helping me reach "Full Time Movers", but likewise, he was unable reach anyone. What legitimate moving company would schedule an appointment for something as critical as a MOVE and does not, at minimum, call the customer to advise they are delayed or unable to do the job? Note: The appoint was confirmed live (with a person) and via text message so there are no misunderstandings on the move date. I have planned this move for weeks and now I have to start over from scratch. Future/potential customers... please do not make the same mistake. You may find yourself in the same, unfortunate position. This very lengthly review is a result of such a poor/non-existent service experience.

Advertised on Thumbtack as being $99 an hour. I have a move that I would like complete but don't feel like paying $400+ for a moving company to move all my belongings because I can move everything but maybe 6 or 7 items by myself. So I sought out to find a company that can move those items for me, at a lower cost. This company came out at $99 an hour... I figured that would be reasonable - maybe take them all of 45 minutes so a hundred bucks is totally worth it... my quote was (and I am quoting) "3 movers and a truck for 845" even if the job took them 2 hours, that is still WELL over the $99 an hour quoted. I do not recommend this company. I'm scoring them a 2 instead of a 1 because of the expedient response times. Couldn't ask for better communication. But I certainly can ask for a better quality of company representation, honesty and integrity. $99 hourly does not translate into $845 - with any sort of math.

MGB was perfect! They came and did everything they said they would fast and efficiently. Not once did we feel stressed about the move. Mario and his team were kind and nothing but smiles despite how hard they were clearly working. We will definitely use MGB for all of our future moves.

The move was terrible my massage chair leather was damaged and my wood floor has lines on it where the chair was dragged across the floor without pads to protect the floor from the metal legs The Van rear doors didn’t open so all loading was done thru the side doors. My safe couldn’t fit thru the side doors how can a moving company use a van that has rear doors that don’t open or work. I was told to move the chair from LA to Camarillo would be $200. However since a lot of time was spent trying to get the safe thru the side doors of the van l was charged an additional $50.00 which l paid bringing the total cost to $250.00 They were never able to get the safe thru the side doors and said that they would have to come back with an additional man and a different vehicle to move the safe from Camarillo to Arroyo Grande and instead of the $200charge it would be an additional $175 bringing the charge to $375 not counting the $50.00 that l already paid for the extra time that was spent trying to get the safe thru the side doors of the van . Year ago I moved the safe with my Gardner and a pickup truck and l believe that if the rear doors of the van would open the safe could have been moved How is the damage to the chair and floor going to be handled please advise

The two men arrived on time and did a very efficient job of moving the furniture and delivering to the other home. The fact that they had a 2 hour minimum versus a 3 or 4 hour minimum was a plus.
