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.

The Silicon Valley Luxury Moving movers were fantastic -- they were competitively priced, timely, organized and meticulous. (They also provide disassembly/assembly services and free wardrobe box loaners.) I will use them for any future moves!

Scott Merrill and his team were fantastic for our local move! All of the movers were prompt and professional. They even came in under the quoted rate since they were so quick and efficient. I'd highly recommend this company. Our move date shifted a couple of times and he was ready to help with last minute schedule changes. Very responsive through text and the payment process was easy. This was our first time with a professional moving company and it was great! Go with Moving Services Transport, you won't be disappointed.

Excellent experience! Professional movers who worked hard, arrived on time, and treated everything I had to move with Mr J. I live on the third floor, with no elevator, and I couldn't believe how quickly my household items were moved in and placed exactly where I wanted them in each room. I would definitely call them again if I move. Highly recommend!

I used Chris P’s Moving and Home Services for my short distance move from a one bedroom to a studio apartment. He is beyond professional and always on time. My mom used him two weeks prior to my move and I was impressed with his services. Chris is great at what he does and most importantly, punctual. Thank you so much Chris for making my move easy and quick. I will 100% be using him again.

Renan and his friend were great for a studio move to Campbell to Oakland. They were on time & even helped me move extra things I planned on coming back the next day to get. Very friendly and no complaints with lifting large furniture (which I always feel bad about). They were done loading the truck in about 20 min and moving my things inside took maybe another 30. The flat fee was extrememly helpful and I even paid them a little more just for the sense of relief once all moved in. Very glad I used them and will certainly keep in my for my next move.

Arrived slightly before our schedules time, moved very quickly and carefully. Had a decent sized move with an hour drive and it was complete within 4 hours. Nice guys too...was also a better rate than some of the outrageous quotes I got on thumbtack. If you're considering them, don't hesitate. I'll be reaching back out for my next move.

Steve and his team were super responsive, friendly, careful, and efficient. They made sure I was satisfied with their work every step of the way. I had never hired movers before, but they amazed me with their work and positive can-do attitude.

They were a pleasure. Offered to come early and completed the move in less than 4 hours (an hour less than quoted). They came prepared with tools to move that I had not anticipated to protect my fragile items. Their attitudes were so positive and friendly; which I appreciated because moving can be very stressful. Overall a great experience, would highly recommend them again!!!

I met Steve feeling anxious and embarrassed as a result of getting lost on the way to our meet-up location, but Steve was gracious and funny and put me at ease. He and his team were thoughtful and efficient in handling the issues that came up and were extremely professional, kind and personable throughout. They were very thorough in wrapping the piece of medical equipment that I needed moved. Everything about the move was handled smoothly. I would definitely recommend Steve and his team to anyone needing moving or hauling help.

This was by far my smoothest move ever. Moving is always so stressful, but Steve and his team showed up on time and were kind and thoughtful every step of the way. They accommodated multiple stops so that I could pick up furniture I’d purchased, handled lots of stairs, and helped assemble my furniture.

We were very nervous about hiring movers. We chose Two friends because of our original meeting and pricing! Santos was professional and friendly and very informative. Our schedule changed a bit and they were very cooperative & flexible. Our long distance move went off without a hitch. Everything arrived safely and in a very timely manner- These guys worked very hard and efficiently. I've already recommended them to the people who bought our house! Great Job and a big THANK YOU to everyone at Two Friends Movers!
