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.

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.

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.

I'm so glad I went with Stuart moving to help me move my items out of storage. I had been holding my things in storage until I found a new home and Stuart & Dante were a godsend. I couldn't even fathom the idea of moving my things from my storage unit into a moving truck myself. They were excellent, punctual, communicative, and also offered a very fair price. I'd recommend this team to anyone looking for some helping hands in a move.

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.

Sam and his team has been wonderful in helping us move all the stuff. They're very professional, wrap all fragile goods and take good care while moving. They also help dissemble and reassemble the furniture. I'd highly recommend them for any moving needs.

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...)

Man I really have to say how truly amazed I was with Caleb and Darnell. They were on time (actually early) . The owner responded back to me after a few hours during the move and suggesting if I needed a 3rd man to assist, within 30 mins Edwin came. At the end all I can say was how very impressed I was with overall how the move went. If you want dependability, trustworthy, kind and hard working movers these guys are the one to hire. I will tell all my friends that need movers to hire. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

The movers were very professional and friendly! Our new place had freshly cleaned carpet, so they put down covering to move in all our stuff, which we really appreciated. There were no surprises. Everything was communicated well and straight forward with pricing.

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!
