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.

JJ Moving did an excellent job moving our furniture. They also helped us move our washer and dryer from the 1st to the 2nd floor. Not only did they help move, but they went above and beyond and helped us install the washer and dryer.

I experienced excellent service with Leclair Moving moving company today, 8/10/18. To be honest, I had a list several moving companies, but when I called Leclair to inquire about pricing, I spoke with Horatio who was more than happy to answer all th questions I had. He was kind, professional, polite and patient with all my questions. When I met him in person (he was one of the movers) he was a delight to talk to you. Horatio was what made me choose Leclair moving company. It’s employees like these who make a difference just On the initial contact! If considering a move, Inhighly recommend Leclair Moving Services! Thank you, Horatio and Kevin, for a great move. You made it so easy! My daughter so appreciates it and so do I! Rebecca Dahlgren

Great job. The move wasn’t easy, since we had to drive from Dublin to Sacramento during rush hour. It took longer than expected, but It was a two man clue and they had to move using stairs on both ends, plus I had quite a few things to move. I could see they were tired at the end of the move, but they did a great job and got it done.

Well Walter was very professional and the movers showed up 45 mins after the time window which was not bad. The move lasted 6 hrs to a one bedroom apartment which I felt was a bit too long. Some of my stuff got damaged as I saw after I started resetting my home so movers could use some extra caution. I know one guy was very cautious but not the other who I feel caused the damages I noticed later to my stuff and the apartment door and walls as they moved things into my place.

Steve and his wife helped us with our move. They did a great job with loading and unloading all our heavy stuff like cupboards and king mattresses. Their price was also reasonable. I would recommend Steve to a friend for moving needs!

I was nervous after reading some previous reviews, but Nicholas and Medhi were great! I hired a different moving company on Thumbtack who confirmed my appt day and time. The evening before my move, the other company reached out and asked if I could be available 3 1/2 hours before my scheduled appt. I agreed and the company replied "great"! Moving day arrived and the company didn't arrive as scheduled. I was okay with them being late, but after 2 hours of no replies to my texts and phone calls I became frustrated and tearful. I am a Registered Nurse with no family in the area and needed to be out of my apt on the scheduled day. I contacted Lugg and had 2 movers scheduled in 5 minutes. The movers arrived in exactly 1 hour and 1 hour later the move was complete. Nichols and Medhi moved the large items and several of the small items making it much easier for me. I handed them each a very nice cash tip at the end to express my gratitude. Thank you Nicholas and Medhi, and thank you Lugg.

We had an original quote for what I stated the move involved. They brought the medium sized truck. I was wrong so another truck was sent and they packed me up as well as put together all the pertinent furniture. The quote ended up tripling but it was fair because I was involved in the move and I probably would have charged even more. Everyone is happy and would highly recommend for small , medium , or large moves. Many thanks

Tarek and his crew were absolutely fantastic with our home move. They took great care with our belongings both loading and unloading; not a thing damaged. They were kind, considerate, and Tarek's warm demeanor made you feel like a good friend was helping you move. Tarek's skill in using every inch of his truck to fit a 1700sqft house with full garage and backyard was amazing to watch. They went above and beyond especially at the unload where everything was placed where it needed to go and insisting on reassembling some key items. I would absolutley recommend Tarek and Last Minute Moving. You guys were awesome; Thanks So Much! Final Note: my wife was a military brat and spent her entire life moving around and said this was her best move by far.

Had good experience hiring them. My move was not a traditional one, I needed dismantling and moving of furniture within floors of the same house. They turned up in a timely manner, carried out the tasks really well and were fun to work with. Their price was good too and I would hire them again.

I want to give them 5 stars because the movers were on time, friendly, affordable and super fast! But they didn't wrap my favorite expensive dining room chairs and one was destroyed... To make it worst, Tony wasn't responsive until I followed up and he offered me a discount on my next move :(

Tarek and Leo were awesome! They are very hard and fast workers. I was moved out of my old apartment and moved into my new apartment very fast even with 3 flights of stairs at my new place. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family. Very reasonably priced as well.
