Your burning questions: answered

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.

We had a great moving experience. We had two excellent movers spend over 8 hours moving from one home to another and remaining to storage. I should’ve asked for 3 movers since the move took longer that expected due to a lot of furniture wrapping and moving over 3 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.

We’ve now moved twice with Hailan movers and our experience has been nothing but exceptional! They arrive ahead of time, carefully move items and are quick. They also picked up all the packaging wrap before they left. I’d highly recommend them!

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!

We are had an excellent experience with Friends moving services. We got 3 movers for about 5 hours to move our 2 bedroom + storage stuff that we have accumulated for many years. The charges were reasonable. Movers were very efficient and saved us both time and money. They were following all covid times precautions and needed little to no direction in doing their job.They arrived right on time and worked continuously for straight five hours. I really appreciate their hardwork and thoughtfulness in making our move smooth.

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.

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.

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.

They moved my son and did assist him. However a flat fee move from Fremont to Richmond increased by $30 dollar and a missing bin which contained over $1200 of Jordan’s and clothing. Also no contract/ paperwork given for the move. Flat fee was great. So we thought great!! Caution. Get paperwork and monitor your belongings.
