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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Reviews for Folsom movers

Old West Moving wrapped, loaded and moved my sister's one bedroom apartment. Prior to the move, Jerome answered my questions over the phone and then emailed a detailed contract. Jerome was on time with a truck and was equipped with all the tools and blankets necessary for our move. He and his crew were polite, efficient and careful. I am planning on using Old West Moving when I move again in a few months.

We had conflict on the timing, but it was a good experience. We had too many items to move over 20, they managed to move everything and put everything as it was in the old place in a professional way. Thank you.

I couldn’t have asked for a better company to help me move. I have had terrible experiences in the past and Chris just restored my faith in movers . He was super careful with my items and also showed me how some (very) fragile furniture items were wrapped and packed in the truck. Chris also checked in with me a couple times before my move date and confirmed date and time. I have a large house and I was very impressed at how quickly they moved. My moving date was the least stressful I have ever had. Prices are great too! Also very thoughtful of my wood floors and laid down protection for them.

Mario did an excellent job moving my sofa. He was right on time and very careful with the move. He was also very responsive to my messages. He and his co-worker were friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Mario for this kind of work.

There was a day and half of delay. No wrapping of any furniture or items, team said they were not instructed to do so even though I was confirmed by the office. Quite a lot of items were damaged and screws fallen off which are now hard to find and replace. Did not use the ramp and runner as promised by office, mover said he had no instructions about it when in fact they had a written note from office on a post it in the contract which I found they left with my copy of contract. Truck was not 26 ft as promised since they left a few items back, or the team did not know how to organize. 2 years back when I moved from So Cal to Nor Cal it was a 26 foot truck which had space in the back after filling everything we had in this move; during that move the only 2 items that were damaged was a broken knob on dresser and slight chip on book case. This was a move of couple miles and the damages are still being discovered as we unpack. Preferably use better team who know what they are doing and not cutting corners. There was a great discount due to the delay but very disappointing to see soo many damages for such a short local move.

These guys were great! I can’t even begin... I was super stressed out for moving day ( wouldn’t any one with a toddler be?) I was literally dreading it..they showed up on time and moved quick.. I’ll admit I’m a bit of a hoarder so I had A LOT of stuff but they got it all out within the same time frame given! I will 100% recommend this company to everyone!

Recently hired Budget Hauling for my move from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 2 story house. David was extremely responsive and provided me with all of the information and guidance I was looking for. I appreciated the fact that Budget is licensed and insured too. This made me feel more comfortable with trusting the company with my belongings. The two gentlemen who helped me move were Mark and Eric. They were respectful, energetic, hardworking, and mindful. They not only worked well with me, but they also worked well with each other. I love to work with team players! I would highly recommend Budget Hauling!

While they were a bit later than expected, they did a stellar job once there. Everything went really well and they were very professional completing my move out of a 3rd story apartment. Did a great job on packing my items into my storage unit. I would hire them again and recommend them to you.

2 stars because they somehow atleast got the job done, else would have given an even lower rating...totally unprofessional, DON'T TRUST HIS INITIAL QUOTE, he kept adding ridiculous charges on the day of the move, said he forgot he had to drive some distance to get to me, had to pay a thumbtack fee (seriously?!)...I had properly mentioned that both loading and unloading had stairs, but he doesn't read your messages only.. and he started complaining about lifting over stairs and charged me extra again for it...He did all this in between the move and I was forced to pay to just get the job done....Initially he said his quote was all inclusive but I ended up paying 50% more than what was agreed upon!! dint have any proper tools either and made me drive out twice to get the right tools..... and to top it off, he broke my table which would have been easy to carry out if it had been disassembled, but he tried to take it out as a single piece and one of the screws came off and I had to lift the table all the way along with them to make sure it dint come apart fully..... will not be hiring him again!
