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 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.

Perfect, quick & easy move, relieved and happy customer! I had a lighter than normal move with just 1 bedroom and bedroom furniture, however, a spare queen bed, and a one-piece entertainment unit that's awkward and heavy. And 30 boxes. The business owner Brandon made every communication quick & easy regarding move details, through Thumbtack. I had a quick, seamless move thanks to Dary and Gary. They arrived 9am on the dot, got immediately moving, i.e., things were in the truck in the blink of an eye, completely, professionally packed; furniture wrapped and loaded in the truck. Polite, courteous. No guessing, no wondering what they were doing. I even asked to stay at the 3hr minimum because it was by most estimates a simple move. And they agreed and completed the move with 15mins to spare. Other movers I've had (twice in 3 years, yes, alot) shut down for 30-60min. lunches, or the crew of 5 refused to move heavy furniture, or they just did whatever their way to take longer and charge more, and once the moving co. owner took off mid-job, yes true!) But Dary & Gary kept it together and bam, done! I will use them again in Dec 2017, I have to leave the condo I'm renting--I knew about this 1yr only lease, but I have peace of mind knowing I can trust Safe Moving. No, I'm not a family member or personal friend of any of the employees. New customer, Tracey Wagner

Brandon and Sergio came a little before time. They were very friendly and helped move well within the planned time. Although they couldn't place the basketball hoop on the new backyard, Brandon offered to move it for free when we concrete was poured into the new backyard.

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.

First I would like to say that the owner of this company is great, he was very responsive and very attentive throughout the whole process. My HUGE problem was with the movers themselves. They left hoses and connectors for washer dryers, refrigerator door handles, a shredder (that I asked them to take 6 times, which they said they would take if I taped it and wrapped it for them) all of my art (I have about 10 pieces that are valuable to me) and a whole assortment of different items. My husband and I are still going back and forth to our previous home to pick up items that weren't moved (a week later). The movers complained about having to move stuff (isn't that there job?). When I asked why they wouldn't take certain items (a shredder, lamp, art), they said that they didn't have any more blankets to wrap them in. These guys actually left several blankets in the house we were moving from (along with TV's, cleaning supplies etc. My advice to this company is 'Screen your employees. Call customers to confirm dates/times, don’t hire movers that complain about having to “move stuff” and leave things behind.' Again, anytime I had an issue, Brandon the business owner jumped in immediately. Brandon said the movers would go back and get everything in a second trip. The movers said that as well. However, what the movers didn't tell me was that they were not going to charge me for the second trip. This company charges by the hour. By the time I was told that the second trip would be made free of charge, I had already decided I didn't want these guys handling my belongings anymore. They were kind of throwing things around, and were very slow talking and taking multiple breaks (I even carried boxes and rugs to their truck to speed the process along). This business has great potential to be a top notch moving company. The owner cares about the customer and is very personable. Safe Moving offers great customer service. The problem is, the employees (the ones I had anyway), were slow, sloppy, confrontational and just didn't care.
