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.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

My wife and I went with Smart People Moving today for our move and we are so happy with their services. Our movers were John and Paul. Both John and Paul were very friendly, efficient, knowledgeable individuals. They took good care of all of our items, even fragile items like our TV and furniture (wrapped up items carefully, took precautions when moving them). We highly recommend Smart People Moving.

It's our first time hiring movers and we made the right choice. Santos and another mover were very professional and efficient in doing their job. They made our move much less stressful, we also made an extra stop at salvation army to donate some furnitures. I will definitely recommend Santos and hire him again in the future. Thanks Two Friends Movers!

I had a very small move (one chair down stairs and brought to another site nearby) and the prices I was quoted by others were over the top. Tony's price was reasonable, he arrived on the agreed upon time and moved the chair with no problems. He knew how to take the chair apart to move it and reassemble it. Will definitely call Tony in the future if I find I need to move items again.

Thanks a lot to Santos and Manuel! They work really fast and are very professional and friendly, the whole moving was super smooth thanks to them. They were exactly on time at pick up place and they even drove me to the new place as I do not have a car. Price is great too as they do not have hidden fees, my moving was under 40 miles so was not charged for drive to destination. If you are still looking for the right mover, I strongly recommend Two Friends Movers. I will definitely contact them again in case I need moving services. Thanks.

Excellent is the only word that comes to mind. We got 3 people to help us with our move in middle of a heatwave in California, and they were the best. Worked tirelessly till the move was completed. Reached on time and were very resourceful when dealing with tough peices of furniture. For a successful move, hire them without a second thought!

Brandon arrived 10 mintues before his appointment and moved my family out of a 3 bedroom single family home in Daly City CA on a Tuesday. Brandon arrived in Belvidere IL Wednesday evening and allow us to sleep in before moving us in to a 3 bedroom townhouse on Thrusday morning. Brandons professionalism and work ethics are impressive to say the least. I highly recommend Safe Moving for either a local or cross country move...you wont be disappointed! THANK YOU BRANDON ~Dave

It's been awhile since I've moved but because it's coming up on the anniversary of said move, thought I would drop the review now. These guys did a pack and move for me for a 1 br/ba. Communication throughout was excellent and I was surprised they were able to accommodate so quickly. Packing was super efficient (I had done NOTHING prior to these guys getting there) as was the move itself. The guys were really good about checking with me to see where all the big pieces went and making sure that everything was where I wanted it. Absolutely zero complaints and as close to painless as moving gets (which isn't painless, but you know...)

Moved a 2br apartment in under four hours. Very professional and helpful with wardrobe boxes, covering for fragile items, and concern for cleanliness/safety.

The two gentlemen who moved me were 100% about business. They wasted no time getting started, were careful and cautious when needed.... so far while unpacking I have had only one broken plate. I packed, so this was not really their fault. Once loaded they also wasted no time getting from Daly City to Hercules. They were waiting for me when I pulled in and I went as fast as I could getting over here. The men had wrapped the furniture to prevent staining and uncovered it all after placing it where I wanted it ultimately to go. I have to say that this was the most efficient move I've ever had......... including the times when I moved myself with the help of friends. I was disappointed that they didn't have any business cards with them because I would certainly recommend them to anyone I know who is moving. I had asked this senior facility for a recommendation and they had none to offer. I did tell the manager here, though, that if anyone is looking for a great moving company to come see me and I'd hook them up with Larro's! Thank you!

Jose and Leo were super helpful! We moved from Daly City to Alameda. They called the day before the move to confirm the time and location, called as they arrived (15 minutes early!) and were incredibly friendly and professional. They loaded everything quickly and carefully. Absoutely worth the cost, which was presented to us straightforward (no hidden fees or “gotcha” issues). Ask for Jose and Leo when booking and you’ll be taken care of well!

Don't go anywhere else for movers!!! Everyone I was in contact with here were so nice and friendly and professional. I was able to explain my situation to Freddy and he helped get exactly what I needed. Juan and Adolfo were the team that showed up. They were early, super courteous and knew exactly what they were doing. I had to make two stops and they went above and beyond to get things moved and stored in a timely manner. Moving totally sucks but these guys made it so easy and stress free for me. I will never stop singing their praises and I will recommend them to everyone I know. So happy with their service.

My Move helped my husband and I move from Daly City to San Diego. Overall, it was fine. It took four guys 6 hours to wrap up our furniture and move it into the truck. And it took two guys 2.5 hours to unload everything and unwrap the furniture. Nothing was broken or missing and they helped us move everything to where we wanted it. We were also really happy with the price. Because another place estimated us practically double what My Move gave us. But here are the negatives: 1. We didn't feel like our Daly City neighborhood was safe. We've had stuff stolen from our cars (windshield wipers, registration stickers). So when I went outside and I saw the truck doors wide open, I was not happy. They left the truck unoccupied for 20-30 minutes at a time. Anyone could've just gone in the truck and taken anything. They said they couldn't lock the doors because of the ramp, so I felt like I had to guard the truck most of the time. In the cold. For 6 hours. 2. Even though during the in-home estimate, Richard wrote down on our estimate that part of the stairwell would have to be removed in order to get the mattress box spring out, the movers ignored that. And the foreman (even though he wasn't involved in the actual removal of the stairs and was just observing) seemed really irritated about it. "Did Richard know about this?" he asked. Yes, yes he did. 3. When it was time to sign some forms, the foreman didn't let me read the forms. I tried to read the insurance one, but he kept pressuring me to sign at a certain spot. So in order to get him off my back, I signed. Days later, when I finally had a chance to actually read it, I realized...that was not where I wanted to sign. I also didn't appreciate that he wanted me to rate their service with him watching over me. 4. At one point, my husband moved his car, and he said that he saw the foreman drop a TV box when trying to load it in the truck. We're lucky nothing was broken. 5. I was also really irritated that I kept getting emails to review their service. Especially right after they finished moving everything out of our apartment. I had a 9 hour drive a head of me, I did not want to be bothered with writing a review. And they kept sending the reminders every few days. Especially when we were busy unpacking.

Booked them for the moving last minute! Most of the companies was not very responsive or not available on weekend. Was very professional on a phone, was able to set up time and date that works for me very quick. Also very affordable compare to others. No hidden fees. Highly recommend!

Horacio, Paul and Eugenio were totally awesome! I, along with my sister, were amazed with their professionalism and willingness to assist us.

Thank you for making my stressful move a happy experience!!!
