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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Glendale movers
Kirsten M.
It was a speedy move and they were quick to respond as we moved during the virus shutdowns and had made a last minute request to move ASAP. They wrapped everything we wanted fast. Moved from a 2 bedroom to another 2 bedroom, and 2 movers was a good amount. Thanks!

Wesley and Robert helped us with our move from LA to Orange County. Mad kudos to these guys. They are amazing movers who made our lives (and fear of moving) so much easier. This team went above and beyond what we expected of our movers and they are great people to work with. We appreciate their genuine personalities , professionalism, and highly recommend them to anyone who needs help with moving!

Simple Moving did a really good job with our move. They were responsive to communication and punctual with the scheduled appointment. Moving heavy furniture is always difficult, and they did a good job protecting everything. One minor note that is specific to the COVID-19 pandemic, and doesn’t reflect on their skills as movers: some of the movers were wearing their face masks very loosely over just their mouths, and not their noses. That is basically useless, and isn’t safe for anyone nearby. Again, this has no bearing on Simple Moving’s ability to move your furniture. It’s simply worth noting. All in all, I would definitely hire Simple Moving again.

Thank you Local Moving Services for providing us such a wonderful moving experience. The 3 movers we had (Alex, Bob and Johnny) did a great job, they were polite, fast, knowledgeable, they wrapped everything and every single piece got to our new house in Glendale without any scratch or damage. When we got to our new house they covered our new finished floors. After using several moving companies in Los Angeles area for our past moves all I can say is that Local Moving Services is the best moving company around and their price are unbeatable. Not only that I will recommend them to all my friends and family when they will need to move but they will have in us a customer for life.

We had a positive experience with Last Minute Mover's! Hired 2 movers to move apartments within the same building complex. Donnie and Jesse arrived on time, were courteous and professional, and they moved our furniture and boxes without a scratch. They also professionally mounted our TV on the wall mount at no additional cost. Would definitely hire them again! Communication and service are A+.

Brandon and Adam were great. They moved quickly and efficiently, were mindful of COVID precautions, and made sure everything was transported with care. They even moved my garden of potted houseplants without any damage to any of them. I found them through an app called Thumbtack and was able to communicate with them pretty instantly, which was fantastic. I would strongly recommend Mightiest Movers to anyone moving; the price was much less than I was expecting and made moving so much less stressful.

I originally reached out for a piano move only but really liked my interactions with Jaden so asked him to quote me on the move of my entire condo. I was not disappointed. Jaden and his team did a fantastic job. They were fast, extremely courteous, and did their job in the time quoted. I would highly recommend him for any move (BTW, my piano was moved perfectly!).

Aleks was communicative and professional. He moved two upright pianos: one five miles away in Glendale and another within the premises. I didn't know that one person could move a piano alone! I appreciated his prompt responses and the care he took in moving the pianos.

Just moved today and hired these guys for the first time ever in my moving life, so my husband didn't have to. This was the BEST DECISION I COULD HAVE MADE. The team was superior!!!! I am super picky and I cannot believe how fast and efficient they were. Best money spent on a move.

The move was fine. I will be sending a bill to Mightiest Movers for the cost of the damage to my wall. This apartment is new and I will have to pay for damages. Next week I will find out how much it’ll cost for the team to patch up the wall and send over a bill. Of course the mover did not do it intentionally, but I will still be financially responsible for the damage.

While they mentioned they had a move earlier in the day, they agreed to move the piano into the moving truck about 1:00. They called to say they were NOT done and reschedule. Unfortunately the piano needed to be loaded first. It would have been more responsible to not accept the job rather than leave me waiting. I was offered a discounted service later, but the truck was leaving that afternoon.

David was very nice and accomodating. Everything went smooth and the fridge we had moved was brought to our home in great condition. We would definitely go to them again for any moving service in the future. Definitely recommended!

The First Moving Company were one of the first company to reach out, when I initiated a long distance moving request. The flat rate quote was competitive and they were willing to work with the budget constraints.  Throughout the process, they were respectful in communication and very prompt to respond.  On the day of the move, they arrived at the requested time. They were well prepared and stocked for COVID 19 and for the move. They packed and unpacked the furniture with care and were conscious with packages that were labelled as heavy and fragile. Since it was a long distance move, they delivered everything early next morning, at my request. The guys were hardworking and experienced. They knew how to bring large stuff to 1st floor via stairs. Despite the hard work, they were professional enough to ask us where every piece of furniture and box would go and arranged it accordingly.  They made my move a lot easier and as painless as possible.

They made the move that I felt so overwhelmed by, become so fast and efficient. They were also the only ones out of the 4 I reached contacted that got back to me within the hour and was hassle free to book. I highly recommend.
