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.

Mario and his team were all great, quick and attentive and reasonable in price compared to all of the other moving companies out there.

Christopher stepped in after another mover cancelled last minute, and I would absolutely hire him again. He made quick work of my sectional sofa, moving it to the curb for bulk pickup, and came early to coordinate with my schedule. Thanks!!

Our two-man moving crew was awesome! They're efficiency and expertise allowed them to load and loading our items at a very rapid pace. A different moving company at our arrival destination was still loading their customer's belongings onto their truck one item at a time while our crew had come and gone before the other movers were finished. It pays to be organized and know what you're doing. Thanks to our awesome crew!!

J&G Moving Company did a great job! When our escrow closed late, all of our moving plans had to change. By the time we were ready to book, we couldn't find a mover because it was the end of the month. I contacted J&G Movers, and although they were booked for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, they offered us an alternative. They arrived "right on the minute", and worked well after midnight to help us out! They were professional and exceptionally positive, even though our 3-4 hour job turned into a 10 hour job! We are truly grateful for John and his crew. They were awesome!

Rigo showed up before the crack of dawn and single-handedly hauled everything in the below photo (+ a queen mattress) into a cargo van for our long distance move in under 20 minutes. After arriving at our new apartment, everything was moved in with no issue. He was friendly, communicative, and professional.

Tony goes above and beyond for his customers to ensure their satisfaction. I bumped into different issues with my leasing office and Tony was able to be flexible with my move. He and his team are quick and they made sure none of my items are damaged. I would recommend Tony to anyone who's moving.

I had only 2 hrs to move my piano from one house to another, before the new owners would take over the house. What a life saver. Tony showed up within the hour, to move the piano to its new home. Thank you Tony and crew for all your hard work. Sandy R.

Were professional yet friendly. Carefully prepared and carried out the items being moved. Had no hidden costs. If needed I would hire them again. Thank you!

Our movers, John and Max, were absolutely stellar. I was a bit concerned talking with Donald, realizing we were assigned an 18 ft truck when in fact we needed 26 ft. So you may need to specify that if you have a lot of stuff. We had worked out a deal for 3 movers instead of 2 but John and Max knocked it out of the park on their own. They were fast, efficient, packed the truck to the brim and did not damage any of our items or walls. These 2 were truly the best movers we've ever had. Because of their skills, I would highly recommend this company .

We purchased an adjustable bed frame and latex mattress that needed to be assembled and moved to upstairs bedroom. Socal Euro gave us a good price and followed up confirmation. Alan and Zack read the instructions; brought tools needed; moved frame & mattress; assembled bed; tested adjustable remote; removed packing materials and cleaned up. Very friendly and cooperative! I plan to use them again.
