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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Reviews for Citrus Heights movers
Tammy S.
Chris and his helper were amazing! They are efficient, professional, and work for a fair price. My moving job got tricky, but Chris showed he is an experienced professional and got my move done. Other moving companies quoted me twice the price, told me I picked the biggest moving day of the year, and tried to talk me into moving my moving date. It felt like they weren’t thrilled about moving only a one bedroom. But when I called Chris, he was positive and friendly. I completely recommend him!

Be prepared when they arrive. They were there to move a fridge and came to the job with a small hand truck that had two flat tires. They had to use ours. While moving the fridge from house to house. Broke screen door and entrance. Scratched and dented brand new fridge. Was not a good service

From my 1st contact to the pay off, Chris was everything I needed to get my easy-peasy-just-move-a-couch done. No drama or theatrics and a fair price on my schedule.. He and a partner came in and moved a very expensive and heavy 8 ft. Italian Leather couch 5 miles to my Son's house. Carefully and cautiously without a complaint or issue. Bada bing! Bada boom! He even took my Sons old couch to the dump. Done deal. My Son and I will be keeping Chris's name & number for future moves...

I had a great experience with them overall. There were a few things of note: - Baseboards of my bookshelf and one of my dresser drawers popped out but I was able to fix both. - When I was standing on the moving truck lift to do a last check, one of the movers started to lower me and I almost toppled over as I wasn't ready. No harm, no foul but heads up for next time =) - They had a full day and issues arose with the move scheduled before mine, so my move ended up happening a few hours after the quoted time. - It seems the $20 security deposit is not part of the overall price, so keep that in mind when budgeting. However, this is my first time hiring moving professionals and I hear these types of issues can happen. Moving is hard and stuff happens. I just wanted to paint the whole picture since feedback can help a company improve and for anyone out there making decisions. Even with those notes in mind, I would still absolutely hire Easy Pro Movers LLC again and recommend them to my friends. Efrain was responsive, quick with his replies, and willing to negotiate with me on pricing since I was on a budget. Him and his employees were very quick to load and unload and worked with me on arranging furniture how I liked it. They were chill yet professional with their work and communication. The team definitely knew what they were doing. Thank you very much to Efrain and his team, I'll be keeping you in mind for the future!

Used this company to move a large sectional we bought at River City Auction. Efrain was very quick to follow-up, quoted a reasonable price and was polite and efficient. Will use this company again.
