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.

I can't thank Mike and Shaw Packing and Moving enough. What a top notch professional Team! I had never hired a moving company before and was faced with coordinating a long distance move for my elderly parents. They relieved ALL my stress! The front office not only provided excellent customer service during my research, but assisted throughout the move by keeping in close contact during the two day move as well. My move Team was just as exceptional! They arrived as scheduled, took the time to walk me through everything and were extremely hard workers. The cost was also the best value I found! NO weight estimating! Customer service, professionalism, and integrity are certainly a big part of this Company's values and it showed in everyone I came in contact with. I highly recommend Mike and Shaw Packing and Moving, you won't be disappointed!!

I did some research for my move and requested quotes; this company came back with the best rate I could ask for. Moving into a 3rd floor walk up was insanely stressful, but these guys did it in record time. The movers were very professional and courteous. They communicated timing and logistics well, were upfront about pricing, and were thoughtful on how to move in a way that didn't cause any damage to my furniture. They were on-time, fast, and knew what they were doing. Overall I had no issues with the team and they made my moving experience as painless as possible, which I appreciate. Would definitely use them again if I end up moving down the line. Professional, efficient and hardworking bunch. I highly recommend!

Just wonderful from start to finish. The team, Sam, Chris and Fred were absolutely amazing and super quick! They completed our move within the quoted 2 hours, from 1 elevator building to the other. We just moving 1 street away so did not have any travel time in our move. In fact, they did not even load up the truck and simply carried our furniture across the street. This was recommend by the team. Thank you for making moving less of an ordeal & annoyance - truly grateful for this crew and company!

I'm so satisfied with my move! Let's face it - moving is stressful. But the team from Jet Moving and Storage made the process simple and smooth. I chose the company based on the great reviews on thumbtack, and I was not disappointed. Pierce, Sam and Alex were total pros. They were efficient but careful, and made moving furniture and heavy boxes look effortless. They expertly disassembled my bed and couch and reassembled them in the new place. They are fast and efficient, but handle EVERYTHING with care. The estimate range was lower than the other two companies I contacted, and the final price was right in the middle of what they quoted. It was a very fair price. It's worthwhile to mention that in this critical condition of COVID-19 Pandemic they didn't raise up their costs for me unlike other companies that I asked for quotes. If you're debating which moving company to use, save yourself the time and emotional energy, and just book Jet Moving and Storage!

I was concerned with moving during the pandemic but the crew worked with our safety in mind and kept to social distancing. Very professional, very nice, and no damages what so ever! From getting the quotes over the phone with James all the way to the movers moving my items were a very pleasant experience and truly a worry-free experience! Everyone was courteous and careful with our belongings and you could tell that these guys enjoyed working with each other. They took what could have been a stressful day and made it as easy as possible. The experience was good as I could hope it to be. Definitely my go to movers from now on!

This is the first time we have hired professional movers. Mario was quick with responding to our request. He’s estimate was simple to understand because there were several moving companies with different prices not really understanding the actual cost. Mario, Oscar, and Alex came in prepared and we’re on mission to satisfy the customer. These are hard working individuals and I praise them for that. We had a house safe which they successfully moved and relocated for us. We are so grateful for their help! They are highly recommend.

I've used this company three times for three different moves over the course of 4 or so years. Incredible job each time. I am not easily impressed, but each move they continue to amaze me at with their promptness, professionalism, and efficiency. James is extremely responsive via email to set up. On moving day, Alexa texted me on their way with an eta of 20 minutes early so they could set up, assess the inventory, get paperwork signed and start right on time. Their prices are among the best in the city. They wrap each piece of furniture with care at no additional charge. We moved from an apartment to a house and they put everything in the exact place we asked. Extremely polite, too. Very pleasant experience.

Patrick did such an excellent job at packing us up, moving us to Northern California and unpacking. Patrick is meticulous in handling furniture and fragile boxes. He is reliable, flexible and has exceptionally good rates. I really cannot say enough good things about Patrick. He is a true professional in every sense. I was so pleased that we chose his delivery service and definitely recommend him. If I ever need a moving service again, it will be Patrick. Thank you Thumbtack for leading me to this great moving company.

The guys that did our move were genuinely nice and caring people. Super-friendly, incredibly fast, and nothing damaged. They were on time, gave me a warning call, and were helpful in every way throughout the move. They put things in the rooms they were meant to go and put them where we wanted them. They also were reasonably priced compared to others, which is why I chose them to begin with. They really made a stressful day much more bearable. What movers actually make you smile!? We would choose them again without a doubt.

Every day they gave a two hour arrival window and rarely made it. They assured me that they were experienced packing and moving professionals, it took them two days to pack 11-14 hours each day @ $180 was exorbitant! They charged me an additional two days to fix their mistakes, four days in total $6442.74 later, I discovered the base of my 60 in TV is broken, the cabinet door that it sits on top of is broken, they dinged and damaged freshly painted areas through out my home. Due to their inability to pack and move items to my home and storage unit, I have no kitchen, dining room, family room or garage supplies, lampshades or TV remotes. They cannot properly assemble beds, each bed has something wrong with them. My previous move was from a 4200 sq ft house to a 3k sq ft home it took them 11 hours with five men. So for this move to take four days paid and the fifth to locate bathroom and medical supplies is worst than terrible. They provided a meger $250 credit which will not scratch the surface of the amount of money that I have to pay to correct everything that they damaged. They made me sign a $500 promisary note in order for them to remove all the belongings from the garage to storage. They told me that they would move everything for free but I had to sign that I would pay them $500 on 12/15/2018. I don't feel I should pay that due to all the things that they did at a sub standard level. I was all alone during this move and felt pressured to go along with whatever they instructed, I hated paying through PayPal which for some reason always charged an extra $60 or more each time I paid. I especially felt bullied when they wanted me to pay at 2 and 4 am, I was exhausted and wanted to understand the fees I felt pressured to pay when really I wanted to fire them. Each time I pointed out that they broke something I didn't hear back. They wanted me to use a painting company that they recommended but I declined due to my experience with them. I hope you share my experience with other unsuspecting movers so they are not over charged and under delivered. I deserve money to pay for the amount of damage I sustained during this five days fisaco. I tried to get properly compensated through Mike & Shaw, I was low balled with $250 off of the third day invoice.

Tetris movers was great. Tristen and his team were a pleasure to work with. They took their time and wrapped up all of our furniture and got it all on the truck so we only had to do one trip across town. Then they set everything back up and put th im ngs where we asked. They were very professional and respectful of our possessions. Would highly recommend them.

Fred and the guys showed up early and got straight to work. The team worked very diligently taking the furniture apart, wrapping what needed to be wrapped and moving heavy, bulky objects through narrow ways and I never heard a bang or saw scratch left behind on a wall or floor. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and would use them again in a heartbeat! Thanks guys!
