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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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 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.

I will use this company again. Staff is very professional. Owner communicates very well. Price was exactly what was quoted. Movers were extremely helpful and patient. The move went smoothly. No broken or damaged furniture. The movers took great time and care with my belongings

My movers were great and even arrived earlier than the moving time. They were extremely courteous and asked if I would like to start at the scheduled time or earlier since they were close to my home already. All the work was done with in the 4 hour time period. Mario called after the movers left to make sure the move went well. They were very courteous, punctual, professional and great customer service!

Never been happier with a moving service! We purchased a new treadmill and needed help getting it up to the second floor. Gurrola's SoCal Movers came and not only moved it up two flights of stairs but also assembled it for us. Very professional, tidy, and friendly service. Looking forward to calling them again!

An amazing experience with SoCal Movers. I had an unusual job of moving a shipment and they had to deal with signatures and receipts which is not necessarily what's expected. They did it with professionalism. Highly recommended. Very reliable.

The 2 guys that helped with my move were great. Helped me get my things for a PODs storage facility and move it to Hermosa Beach. They were professional and were very attentive of my things. I would definitely use them again.

The movers are all very nice, and price was good. But on the second travel many furnitures were left behind and I have to move these myself. But actually the truck was less than half load on second travel. Also need improvement on estimation. It was said only need one travel, so the movers spent many time disassembled many furnitures trying to squeeze into the truck. If planned for two trips it'll save abt two hours and I don't have to assemble them by myself.

We are a moving company and were looking for another company who could assist a long-time client with a move during a time when we were out of town handling a long-distance move. MGB was the perfect choice. Mario and his team arrived early and and ready to do the work. They were polite and delivered a high quality service as promised! Mario is definitely a man of his word. We definitely plan to hire them again. Thank you MGB!

I am really thankful that I found these 2 guys to help with my move! Moving is never easy, especially after a long day at work, being able to come across people who are very honest and give great customer service for a great price is very RARE these days. I recommend Mike & Shaw to anyone who is supportive of honest businesses who give 110% to make sure their customers are satisfied. When I move again, these two will be the first I call!

These gentlemen worked hard, confirmed my appointment time, took great care with my items, and moved me at the best flat rate I could find. They even picked up another customer who saw them working while they were moving me. I highly recommend and will hire Mario again.

The driver arrived without the 1 hr advance notice I was told I would receive. When I got to the destination, the truck was visible but the movers were nowhere to be found. After 15 minutes of searching, we found them and the rest of the move went very well. The boys were very polite, friendly, and efficient.

Stop shopping for movers and hire Shift It right now! These guys all felt like close friends the second they showed up to help us move. From the beginning they were professional, responsive, and very cool. During the packing process Wesley and his team were especially careful and creative with our things - even a fridge that was nearly impossible to install, they worked hard to figure out and made it happen. They are total pros! Although I hope I don’t have to move again anytime soon, but if I did I would hire Shift It again without hesitation.

I gave Rick 2 stars, one because he was good at communicating and another because he showed up, albeit, late. The job I hired him to do was to move a queen size bed with an adjustable base from an upstairs bedroom to downstairs bedroom. He arrived alone and when I expressed my concern about moving it alone he agreed that the base was to heavy and he would try to contact a friend in the area to move it. At that point I knew I wouldn’t be comfortable with him moving the furniture. He called me to let me know he was unable to find anyone to help him. I thanked him and then scrambled to find someone else to help me. If you hire Rick my suggestion is to make sure it’s clear what the job entails. I don’t believe he knew just how heavy adjustable base beds are.

Showed up an hour later than agreed upon, with half the crew I expected. They moved at the pace most movers these days move at, spending a lot of time wrapping things that didn’t need to be wrapped, insisting on disassembly or things that didn’t need to be disassembled. That’s when you just need to step in and regulate, which I’m used to. The main issues I had was their pace and that there was no foot protection, so we had to strategically stage then plan for them to remove shoes to carry things upstairs since they took literally minutes to take shoes off and put back on. One of the guys joined a class on Zoom on his phone at one point. Kept moving but had headphones on and all. Was funny at that point. Then at the end of the job, the price increased as well. Suddenly the rate changed. Had to show the messages to prove the price was different which ended up taking another 30 minutes of time to figure out because they didn’t know who messaged me. There’s some organizational issues they really need to figure out. In the end, I paid $60 more for less crew and less time than we had originally planned. I knew it would be quick, I’ve moved a lot but I was so exhausted and tired from the long day I just wanted them to leave. They did provide last minute moving and kept my stuff safe but that wasn’t worth the rest of the headaches that came along with it. Won’t be calling again for work.
