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.

Reviews for Danville movers

We were so thrilled to have Move Me Do help us move yesterday. From start, Sam was very responsive and helpful in providing us an initial estimate for what was to move. In the days and weeks that followed, we kept in touch so that Sam could schedule his team accordingly. Finally, the big move day - the team showed up with a BIG truck, and strong & capable men! Their team’s ability to work together really showed in their efficiency & masterful packing it all in! We were so impressed and grateful at the end of our move. And highly recommend this company!

Yovani was absolutely wonderful. I had previously had another mover scheduled to complete my move and the mover never showed up and didn't respond to my calls or texts. At the 11th house I scrambled to find another mover and Yovani was. Life saver!!! He immediately responded to my request, answered my specific questions and arrived EARLY and was ready to get started as soon as my husband and I arrived. He and his partner were extremely polite, professional and hard working throughout my local move. Their work ethic is 200% and they TRULY CARE ABOUT DOING A GREAT JOB!! I can't recommend Yovani enough - he was a pleasure to work with and if I ever need another local mover he will be my first call!!

I reached out to 10 different movers bidding for a condo move in neighboring cities. From the onset, Luis was professional, responsive, and provided the a fair rate based on my move. I booked with him and it was the best decision I made! Unfortunately the weekend that I scheduled my move was in the middle of a heat wave, but despite it being hot, Luis and his son maintained a positive and professional demeanor, hustled hard up multiple flights of stairs, and were incredibly thoughtful and careful in transporting my items. In fact, everything arrived perfectly! If anyone is looking for movers who are honest, take pride in what they do, and provide exceptional service, I’d highly recommend Mr. Domínguez’s services.

Tony's Movers gets a top rating!!! Getting the quote was a quick process, but I selected them based on the responsiveness and quality of responses versus other companies. They were the most professional in answering my questions. The quote was good and they did a great job the day of the move. They did an excellent job packing our kitchen and moving our entire house. It was a full day job for four guys and a large truck, but they were very efficient.

Who likes moving? It’s stressful, tiring, and seems like it’s never going to end...then you’re done packing and it’s time to move and do it all again in reverse...UGH!! Who makes it easier? A moving company like Safe Moving. After choosing them to handle the move, Brandon helped us get set and was supportive when we needed to push the pick-up date out a couple days, the crew he sent did a great job working the tails off getting us carefully packed up and unloaded, and when the truck he sent was not quite big enough to transport all our goods he reimbursed us for the trailer I had to rent to following day to get it all. Not optimal, but Brandon stepped up and helped make it right and covered the cost, and in the end it was a very successful and uneventful move...and we still haven’t found any broken dishes! So hats of to Brandon and team for a job well done.

Anthony and his crew were polite and extremely helpful. My brother had a last minute move for a large home full of heavy furniture and hastily packed boxes. They worked long into the evening without complaints and were back early the next day. Some of my friends that came to help pack were impressed. We all plan to call Anthony for any future Bay Area moves!

Luis was very courteous & helpful. He not only moved my 2 tables from the store, but offered to assemble one of the tables that I was not aware was still in the box. I will definitely utilize his services again because of his positive attitude, professionalism & expertise.

Can’t say enough positive things about Gogo Transport. I needed help quickly and they were out here in a few hours. The price was reasonable and they went above and beyond what was discussed for the job. They even took another piece of furniture to drop off at no extra charge Their base charge was more than some of the other movers listed- but I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. I have hired the cheapest company before and there are always extra charges when all is said and done. I went with Gogo because they were quick and upfront about the total cost-which did not exceed what we discussed. I have never had that with a moving company -ever. I had some issues with my doors and they took the extra time to help me with fixing the lock. They even brought an extra guy at my request for no extra cost. Other companies were vague about their estimate and the cost listed was for 1 person, which made me wary as I have hired movers before where the end cost is way more than what was discussed. If you want prompt, honest and trustworthy people, this is your company. I will hire Gogo again and highly recommend that you do the same. Thank you again Gogo for your help!

The crew that same was very unprofessional.. Came 1/2 hour early but told 15 mins after they started that they haven't had lunch and whether I can get it for them. I never understood why they couldn't have lunch and just come on time. Brought a small truck when I had clearly told the size of the home and made two trips which added atleast 40-50 mins to the overall time. Started complaining at the end of the job that the boss doesn't pay us enough and demanded I pay a large tip. Very disappointing. I definitely paid atleast $100 more due to all this. More than the money it's the unprofessional attitude that left a sore taste. Never again! Ying was pretty good with scheduling etc.. But admitted that the movers she sent were being used for the first time given that they are busy.
