Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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 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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

The team at Exclusive Moves were so efficient and fairly priced for the moving they did. They were very careful with all items, especially anything breakable, but still moved swiftly to make our move as painless as possible! I will definitely be using them again!

Tom and his crew arrived for our move promptly at the top of the hour. It was our first time using professional movers and I couldn’t have been happier with the way the three-man team effectively and efficiently moved us from a third floor condo to our new place on a ground floor. I recommend this company for your move, you won’t be disappointed.

Sam was very professional and trust worthy! I did a long distance move from LA to Bay Area and he was able to move all my stuff up to the third floor STAIRS ONLY. He was always super responsive whenever I had a question and very nice. BOOK SAM! You won’t regret it. I will definitely book him for my next move.

What an amazing move! Reuben was so communicative leading up to this process and I am very pleased! They had to club stairs to move the stuff out and they handled it with no problem. They even took apart my dining room table just to ensure it would not get damaged in the truck! And he put it back together! Will for sure use them again if I move locally! Thanks guys!

Highly professional. The movers (2 men) took great care in handling, wrapping, and moving a piano from a home to a church and placing it exactly where requested; moving an existing piano within the church to a new location, and removing/hauling away an old piano as requested. All were accomplished within a short span of time without any problems. Will gladly recommend them to others.

They got here right on time and did exactly what I needed them to. They moved my old mattress out, moved 3 dressers into my room and assembled my new bed. I thought it would be a 2-3 hour job, but they got it done in LESS than an hour, which I loved. Great service, well worth the money. Would contract again.

Quality and valueExclusive Moves stood out among other moving companies, as I was searching. I would definitely recommend Exclusive Moves if you are looking for value without sacrificing quality. The quality of service actually is exceptional, you would never regret for your choice. These Excusive people also know how to adjust the hourly rates when it comes to only a few items for the job, to make it reasonable and affordable as well. As you watch them working, you notice right away these Exclusives are skilled professionals in their field. They tackle difficult, unexpected situations with ease. They not only have brains, skilled hands and muscles, they have a big warm heart ❤️and smiles 😃

I hired “tank movers” for my small move. I had one queen bed and 1 flat screen that needed to be dessbled and assembled. I was very specific on my request. I spoke with ILYA on the phone and he had texted me with a flat rate. So I thought. I sent my 150$ deposit via zelle and scheduled my move for Monday afternoon. Monday came and two guys who spoke very little Broken English showed up and started the job. They we’re about 20 minutes late for the scheduled time of the move. We got to the ending location and they assembled my queen size bed but forgot a piece so they had to retrack, they also did not mount my flat screen which was in my detailed requests. To make matters worse the guy pulls out his phone at the the end of the job and begins to try to brake down a bunch of hidden fees for me like 55$ for gas etc.. This move was local and less than 4 miles away?! Ridiculous! Charged me for a shrink I never asked for. It was very difficult to communicate with him when he barley spoke English so I called ILYA and he completely disregarded anything I had to say. This job could of easily been done in under 3 hours but it took them 4. I feel very take advantage of and I will NEVER use “Tank Movers” Again. Please be careful!

These guys were excellent. They really helped me on a short timeline and got the work done. It was a very physical job so I appreciated their moving the shed and ensuring everything was in order prior to leaving. They were the only company who was prompt in answering my initial phone call and they work 24 hours a day so they can arrange with flexibility. I can definitely recommend. A+.
