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.

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.

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. 

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.

Movers and Movers is my favorite moving company. These guys turned a nightmare into a daydream - no fooling! I worried and sweated and once they arrived, a brutal day (aren't all moving days?) became a delight. I love my new home, and this was the perfect way to get started. They are hard workers, careful, respectful and have a great business ethic. I recommend Movers and Movers without hesitation.

Richard the sales rep for My Move was terrific, very up front, built trust with me immediately and provided me with great guidance regarding my move. The Moving team were amazing, professional, fast, through both move out and move in. Honestly I received quotes from other companies in the bay area that ranged $4K and Richards quote was spot on. HIGHLY RECOMMEND My MOVE

Anthony is a very professional person. He actually came to my house to check on the pieces i needed moved before moving it. His price was fair and he did not hold us hostage after the move which a lot of movers do. All my stuff was moved professionally and nothing was damaged or broken. I would unhesitatingly recommend them to anyone. If you want a mover with no hassles these guys are the ones you want to hire.

Leclair movers worked hard and were able to load our heavy furniture into our moving truck quickly. Unfortunately, they were an hour and a half later than our agreed upon time. Our move was delayed and the moving help we had at the other end of our move had to be delayed as well. We had to move as quickly as possible, so we moved half the stuff ourselves before they even arrived. They require a two hour minimum, but they were so late that they only worked one hour. Additionally, we were so much later on our move that we got stuck in awful traffic. They did a great job when they arrived, but their lateness seriously made the moving day so much more stressful than it had to be.

The moving company we used 'Dragon sea moving' was reasonable. They said they offer free wardrobe boxes, free blankets etc. But they could give us only a couple of such boxes which is certainly not enough for a move. They had reasonable rates but their movers were really insisting on a certain tip. All they highlighted through out the move was that they expect $10 an hour tip - which was more like extortion. Will not use them again.

I had a move that included several stops. The team showed up on time. Were very professional and efficient. They asked questions when clarification was needed in order to minimize effort. Highly recommend Smart People Moving for your next move.

Scott and his movers moved our apartment in record time. Everything got here in the number of pieces they started out with. 👍 They are punctual, efficient, and very professional. There were no surprises. The fee was as estimated and negotiated before we started the move. I highly recommend these folks!

I hired Tony’s Movers for my move last weekend and I’m so happy I did! They did an AMAZING job!! They got the job done quick and even wrapped my antique furniture in plastic wrap so it was protected during the move! I’m extremely satisfied with the service they provided and I definitely recommend them to anyone who needs quality moving services!

Leclair moving confirmed with me that they are available at the time and date of the move and said they will let me know on the date of the move if they can come by 3/4 o’clock depending on when they finish the previous job. Never got a call! Never got a message! No one showed up at the house!

Hired 3 movers for 2 hours. To start with, they reached on time, after giving us a heads up about 30 mins in advance. We had hired them to move primarily the big items to another apartment within the same community and wanted them to be done in 2 hrs. Once they arrived and the paper work was done, we showed them the items they had to move (including dissembling and assembling). They were quite fast with their work and wrapped everything carefully. They completed the move on time too, and moved additional items as well (smaller items). I would recommend their services to others.

Showed up in the time window, worked quickly and cheerfully to get everything moved. Total pros. I was very pleased. Moving is always stressful for me, and these guys got it done.

These guys move your stuff fast. Make sure you are ready cause they will roll through like a moving tsunami. If your stuff isn't packed they will come with stuff and pack it for you. Everything gets wrapped in moving tape, electronic screens will be covered with blankets. Great stuff just want I needed.

Working with Steve and Albion was very easy. Steve was responsive, his quote was accurate, and the actual move was quite easy. I have moved quite a lot over the years, mostly corporate cross country moves. This was the first move that I didn't have to worry over. Steve's understated and no-nonsense approach gave me assurance that I was being taken care of in the most professional manner. I would recommend Albion to anyone without reservation and would use them again!

I hired Albion Moving and Storage for my move on my first home. They came on time (early even!) and was very responsive with any questions or concerns I had. I was stressed with working and packing, but their 2 man crew moved everything I needed so quickly. I have extremely narrow stairs in my new home and they did not make a scratch on it. I'm very impressed with their efficiency and quality of work. Definitely would recommend to anyone and will reach out to them in any future moves!

Used Scott to move a heavy piece of exercise equipment down 2 flights of stairs. After a communication snafu which worked out fine, I was definitely satisfied with the expertise and care shown to my equipment as well as my walls in the moving process. What a pro! Would definitely use Scott again for other moving needs! Reasonable pricing.

Just one little gripe. Pricing included a 'round trip' clause, which is first of its kind for me. After you have moved, basically, get charged for the time it takes to drive from the place you moved to, back to the place where you moved from. I hope you'd clarify this for your customers when they're signing up with you.

Scott was great. Called with last minute moving need and he was able to squeeze me in when another customer needed to reschedule. His crew was on time, cared about my furniture and moved quickly. Highly recommend!
