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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

These guys were great! They were extremely prompt, polite and they moved things fast. They completed the move before the time I expected them to finish. This was my 13th move and smoothest by far.

I've moved across our beautiful country many times and my move with Jose was the best experience of them all!! He was always available to help with all the stress of moving to the northern tip of CA. Everything arrived in perfect condition and on time! Jose was caring, courteous, and professional throughout the entire process and being a recent widow it was really appreciated!!

This company is awesome! They came on time, and called before to make sure all details were squared away for moving day. We had many weird shaped items and they made it work all in one trip! Very nice people to work with, would recommend. UPDATE: I used this company again this past month after 3 years since the first time I used them. I can't say enough good things. It was quite a move, and the movers were so kind and considerate through the whole thing. I will forever use and recommend this company for all of my bay area moving needs. They are so responsive and such a fair price! Thank you so much!

Scott was very knowledgeable when it comes to moving houses, giving me details to think through that I didn’t know about and proved to be helpful during the actual process. His crew was prompt, quick, and quite efficient.

Scott was so thorough and really helped think through the whole moving process. Richard and his crew were really cool, extremely professional, and came in under the time and under budget. I couldn’t be happier with my experience!

Scott and his team not only met but exceeded our needs. Scott answered a lot of my questions before I needed to ask them. He also explained the game plan in detail so I knew what to expect and how long each task would take (boxing, covering, wrapping, transporting). Pricing was fair and reasonable. The team always wore their masks and were careful with wrapping and moving our belongings. They went the extra step to make sure I liked where I asked them to place things and if I needed anything moved (yes, I did, a few times😅). They had a great report with each other making the whole day much easier and enjoyable for everyone

Larro's team arrived on time, brought a truck and extra packaging materials in case I needed it. They provided insurance as required by my HOA and completed the work on time. They scaled two flight of stairs and nothing was broken . Communication prior to the move was clear on what is going to happen during the day. Very professional. Fantastic.

SVLM is awesome! The pickup : The move was scheduled at 10 am. I received a call at 9.30 giving me a heads-up. At 10 sharp, Yana, Sergey and their huge truck arrived at our doorstep, after initial survey and required documentation Yana and Sergey started loading our boxes in the truck. They handled all the boxes (irrespective of the size or weight) with extreme care. All the furniture was wrapped up with moving blankets and plastic wrap. Not a single scratch on anything! The destination : Sergey drove his truck carefully and reached the destination on time (which was accurately documented). Yana and Sergey then started unloading the truck. Again with great care and strength. All the furniture was placed in the rooms it was supposed to be. Both of them were very careful about the new laminate flooring and the wooden edges of the stairs. They used a rubber carpet on stairs to avoid any damage. Unloading was really fast and they were done in under 6 hours. Considering the amount of stuff we had, 6 hours is kind of record time for 2 people. Amazing service, super strength, accurate timekeeping, can do attitude, careful nature and punctuality. This is the best moving experience we've had till date. Thanks Yana and Sergey!

These guys are GREAT! They were friendly but professional and had excellent communication skills. This is my first time using them but it won’t be my last. I had some heavy items that needed to be moved from the garage to my study. They took all precautions to protect my furniture as well as my hardwood floors. Just a superb job!

I contacted Steve on a Friday for a move on Saturday with restrictions on number of items and budget. Steve was extremely responsive and flexible to figuring out a deal that worked for both of us. On Saturday morning, he came in (with PPE) with 2 others and got the job done in a professional manner. I had heavy items that needed to go down stairs at the place of loading and up the stairs at place of drop off - I didn’t hear the crew complain once but kept plugging away at their work. Highly recommend and would definitely hire again.
