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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Rodolfo and Manny did such an amazing job on my move from Concord to Fremont. Worked very quickly and were extremely attentive and careful with my belongings throughout the entire move. I know how hard moving is, but they made it seem like a piece of cake. The entire experience (starting with a phone conversation with Joe to the actually moving portion) was professional, pleasant, and simple. They took away the headache I always associate with moving! Would 100% use them again, and 100% recommend them to anyone looking to hire a moving company.

This was a really smooth move. Thank you!! Even though it was a really small move (a few pieces of furniture and a couple boxes going five miles), three men showed up and completed the move fairly quickly. They were really professional and efficient.

I was having shutters installed and needed furniture moved away from windows and then moved back after install completed. Jiri and Jesus showed up right on time, moved the furniture and then returned after project finished. The furniture was VERY heavy and they did a really good job. Very considerate, mannerly. I would highly recommend them.

Tony’s movers did an excellent job taking our pool table apart and moving some bulk furniture we had to our garage. They were quick, and went above and beyond on a few things. I definitely recommend them. They also charged a great and fair price!

Jiri in the office quoted 2 men for $80 an hour, or 3 men for $105 an hour. I gave Jiri explicit information and asked for an estimate on what he thought the final cost would be. Jiri said because of afternoon traffic, it could cost between $250 and $300. It took 2 hours, the men worked fast, wasted no time and worked quickly and professionally. However, Jiri charged $300 for the job anyway. Not the 2 men at $80 or $160 total quote. I paid the men $240, because they were good and it was not their fault but it was Jiri in the office I had the problem with. Plus, at this point, I was then told there was a $240 minimum. First I heard of that, and it should have mentioned before and been put in writing. I have my notes, no, never mentioned that. The men told me to take it up with Jiri. I was ready to give them a big tip but by then I was frustrated and annoyed. Not my first rodeo, Jiri. I've moved before. You don't get away with that. Stick to the quote, don't give an estimate of the job that is inflated and then try to stick to that, and if there is a minimum, put that in writing on the quote. Or was it possibly just a misunderstanding? In that case, you owe me $80. SRC ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ See Jiri's quote below: Mon 1:50 PM Chatting with Jiri Priam $260 total price Howdy, Thank you for your interest in our moving services! If you're still looking for quality moving helpers with over 14 years of moving experience we are ready to help. Here's is what I can offer you to support your move. Here are your options; 2 labor movers for $80 an hour. 3 labor movers for $105 an hour. We can also provide a flat rate in some cases. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Other services we offer: We have moving van, equipped with dollies, moving blankets, straps & shrink wrap. Should you have any additional questions please don't hesitate to ask. Best regards, Jiri " We love creating a remarkable experience for our clients" A few times that work More Tomorrow 9:00 AM, 9:30 AM, 10:00 AM

Pavel and Miguel were wonderful to work with. They are fast, courteous, polite and efficient. They were wonderful to my 88 year old mother who can be a bit crotchety. They packed the truck and drove to Reno the same day. I highly recommend them for your next move.

Wismar and Mariel were our two movers and they were the best. When they initially came, they thought they would need a big truck which they promptly got. Checked in with us all the time on progress and got everything done timely and friendly! Would hire again! Thanks all!

Jiri and his team helped my partner and I move large and small items 3x within the span of 6 months, and worked with us on price quotes to fit within our budget. However, because Jiri and his team are becoming more popular because of their efficiency in moving furniture, etc... and the careful, yet quick speed in which they pack their van, the demand of their services has been two-fold. Fortunate for his business, but on the third hire, Jiri had to postpone my moving date two times because of scheduling conflicts with another client in the Bay Area. But when he did arrive, he and his team of 3, carefully packed their van and my small car to fit 20 boxes of various sizes and weight, queen size bedframe, mattress, and box spring, dining table and chairs from my condo to make what would have been two trips into one. Other than a scheduling conflict and prolonged wait time, I would continue to hire Jiri and his team again because they worked within our budget, showed professional and careful packing and unpacking skills, and communicated when there was a time delay.
