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.

I recently used Noah and Freddie to help me move. The movers were great at getting everything boxed and loaded/unloaded. They worked very fast and made sure that I was 100% satisfied the whole time. They also made moving stress free and actually enjoyable. I will definitely use these guys again when it is time to move again!

Had a great experience with Dean’s movers! They are super friendly, responsive, and do a great job. They moved our 2-bedroom belongings to our new apt less than a mile away, and dis-assembled and re-assembled furniture as well. Thanks for an awesome job!

Michael is extremely dedicated and works incredibly hard to make sure your needs are met. He did a great job with my move. I had a couple of my planters as part of my move that was spilling water out of the pot due to the recent rain. He recommended that I move them separately so my other stuff don't get ruined in the truck. So he came back the next day just to help move the planters. I appreciated his smart thinking and willingness to go out of his way to come back the next day to finish the job. I highly recommend him.

We had a difficult move to get out of our house. These guys did a great job of negotiating some obstacles to remove our fridge and couch that we weren't sure would make it through a narrow exit. They worked really hard and efficiently moved all our belongings. They completed the job in about five hours even though it could have taken a lot longer. The crew was very nice and polite. They took great care in protecting our fragile items. They were a little more expensive than some of the other local moving companies I contacted, but they were worth it. I would highly recommend them and would happily use them for our next move.

Chris and his associate had a refreshingly positive can-do attitude. They took special care with all my items, especially an awkwardly large, heavy framed antique print that has high sentimental value. They are the best movers I've used over my last ten moves in 6 years. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and recommend them highly.

We used Simple Moving for the first time and they were great. Arrived right on time, very nice and no hassle. All I had to do was stay out of the way. Pricing was very transparent right up front and they were careful with our items. Highly recommend!

Christopher and his team were very respectful to myself and each other. It was an incredible experience full of positivity, hard work, and laughter. I'd highly recommend anyone to use these services. I rarely leave reviews, but the Muscle Movers team made it impossible not too. I also treated them to a nice tip, because of their awesomeness!

Aleks is like a real-life super hero. I was stuck on a flight when my new couch was delivered. The delivery guys left it on my patio while I was flying, so I needed a seriously strong team to get it upstairs and into my home that night before it got stolen or rained on. Aleks and his moving partner saved the day! They showed up within a few hours, brought blankets to protect my stair rail, and carefully hauled it up—no sweat! I imagine a lot of other movers would have walked away because it was a tricky space to maneuver and it was around 9 pm—when most people would rather be done for the day! These guys are seriously strong, no-nonsense, and focused! They also assembled a pesky table for me, cleaned up, and were friendly, polite, and professional in the process. They didn’t rush or get annoyed or frustrated. They simply got it done despite the time and were very nice from start to finish! Thanks, Alecks and Roman! You’re amazing!
