We try to keep the costs reasonable and affordable while simultaneously taking care not to damage anything along the way while still working quickly and efficiently. We keep the client's cost in mind. Whether helping the client to select the right services, or even how-to go about the move, we help keep the costs of moving as affordable and cost effective as possible. We wouldn't want to spend our life savings to move, so why should you? No one should have to dig into their kids' college funds or their retirement account to move. Providing a virtually seamless experience for our clients and packing the trucks. We deal with a variety clients on a day to day basis. Oftentimes, they are clients who under no circumstances would be able to make the move happen on their own. That's where we come in. We treat each client like a friend or family. We make sure that at the end of the service, they are happy with every element of the move. As for packing, we often hear our clients say "Wow, you guys are great!

Packing haphazardly only leads to having to repack, reorganize and possibly try to repair damages. Do it right the first time and you'll keep the client's, as well as your own, stress levels to a minimum.See more

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.

Scott and his beautiful assistant, did a wonderful job moving our upright piano and Grandfather clock. They were very professional, friendly, and prompt. I will be having them back in a couple of weeks to move the items back. I HIGHLY recommend them!!!

Unfortunately they had to cancel moving services due to unforeseen circumstances, but they were very upfront and communicated along the way. I would still use them another time, they were quick to refund my deposit as well and followed up to make sure I received it and that my move still went well.

Scott and his team arrived on time and with all the equipment they needed to unload my very full 26' U-Haul truck and a 16' POD. They did a GREAT job getting everything moved into the correct room of the house very quickly and efficiently. They also helped with much of the setup. I highly recommend Scott and his team for whenever you need any type of moving services.

Bottom line they were excellent.They showed up on time.They were very professional. They were the only moving company that called us back the very same day I posted. I gave them an inventory of everything we had to get moved and they gave an estimated price. They packed the stuff very nicely,nothing was damaged.They did it in a timely manner. They arrived with our stuff on time and started to unpack and put everything where it needed to be,and even reassembled the furniture. Overall very impressed and recommended to everyone. Thank you

I can’t speak to the actual service of this company. After receiving the information from the app I contacted them via text message. Sorry I never got the name of the person I was communicating with. My move was very simple, packed items from my garage to a storage facility. Mostly boxes, some light furniture. I’m in Gilroy, and the storage if just a few miles away. Should have been an easy local move. We agreed on a price of $50 file fee and $90 per hour for a two man crew. The night before the scheduled move I received a text stating that the boss says it’s too much to drive from SF to Gilroy and wants to add an additional $100 for fuel!!! I refused, because they knew the address prior to giving me a quote. Then they tried to negotiate, asking if I would be willing to pay the additional cost, and not tip the workers. As if a tip was automatic! They may do great work, but the business end of the transaction killed it for me.

I was very satisfied with the 2 young men that came and moved me, Dari and Michael. They were very professional (they took time to call me to let me know that they would be a little late, due to an accident on the freeway. When they arrived they got right to work, they had SO much energy from the time they arrived until they left. It was a long day. They were extremely polite, respectful, and very careful moving my things. I was very impressed with them. I wish I could say as much about the lack of professionalism that Brandon, the owner of this company displayed. His lack of follow-through. I had to call him to make sure he received my email to confirm he had me on his schedule, because he did not send me a confirmation email. I then asked him to bring wardrobe boxes, he said they do not provide them (which I found out wasn't true). I ended up having to purchase wardrobe boxes, additionally I found out, when paying that they do not take checks. Brandon failed to inform me of some VERY important facts. Lastly, there was no follow up call to find out how things went. I think the reason this company is still in business is because they hire well.

Didnt have a large enough truck so had to make 2 trips which made the price go up significantly. Bottom corner of TV crack in casing we noticed after move when we were mounting it but not huge deal to us so never said anything. Would have been nice if they alerted us but going to assume they didn't know. Workers were respectful and efficient with truck they had. Forgot I paid a deposit to save the date and noticed that it was not taken off my total after I paid so ended up paying more than should have. Paid deposit requested and owner insisted everything be on Thumbtack so said he would put receipt on Thumbtack. Never happened so initially thought I got duped but all worked out.
