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.

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. 

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.

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.

Very punctual. They arrived 10 minutes before they were to start and never stopped working until the move was completed. They were 2 hard working, strong and very professional young men. They truly know the moving business. I appreciated all their hard work and was very please with the move. I will highly recommend Safe Moving to others.

Unfortunate personnel issue got the crew off to a late start and extended the duration of the move. The owner contacted me about the issue and promised a completed move that day. Well, the crew who moved us were exceptionally meticulous in how they handled, packed, and off-loaded our household. I would move with Safe movers again. Dumaurier and John both stuck to a very difficult task on a beastly hot day and we truly appreciate their work.

The 3 men who came to move us, arrived before their scheduled time, did a quick walk through and promptly began moving everything, taking every precaution not to damage any items or the walls as they moved. I cannot recommend this company highly enough. If anyone needs movers, I will be quick to recommend this company! You can't beat the price or quality!!

Although initially they were late, the movers, Demariay and Juan, made up for it in professionalism and honesty. They worked tirelessly to remove my items from one location and unload them to the other (less than 1 mile). They communicated well with each other, as I was eavesdropping, to best move my items without causing any damage to the home. They were equipped and very adept in securing and wrapping my items. Each time they had a question, they politely would call upon me to direct them where furniture goes. Demariay even notified me that my ceiling was knicked (very minor and fixable). I was taken aback my his honesty. Some movers just move items and don’t tell you when they’ve damaged your home. The owner, Brandon, was very courteous and quick to respond to phone calls. I was glad that he was very accommodating and confirmed my request of employing Demariay & Juan for a second trip, since I had the last 7 heavy items to move. I would highly recommend Safe Moving. They are professional, honest, and very skilled in providing moving services.

Mario and his partner drove a long distance and showed up on time (on a hot Sunday afternoon) and quickly took care of moving 3 large pieces of furniture that me and my wife couldn’t handle. The moves were just within the house or out to the garage, so it was quick. The guys moved everything carefully and efficiently and had it all done in no time. Probably a real easy job for them, but so worth it to us for the agreed upon price. Will contact Mario in the future if we need help again.

Moving With Caution and Care has provided excellent service when we moved our household stuff to Roseville, CA on October 8. The contact person Frank Washington was of great help while his response was immediate, polite and exemplary. The two people he provided Chis and another person did a wonderful job during the 10-hr period they loaded and unloaded besides fixing all the items at the allotted places in our new residence. I sincerely recommend availing Frank's help when anyone wants to move their household stuff. SRV
