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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

The movers were very professional and equipped with the necessary items for the move. Unfortunately they were almost 3 hours late for the move. I would recommend this company but would ask for the first move slot of the day.

Very pleased with Must Have Movers. Carlos ran point on the multi-stop move, which was great. The calm and responsive manner of MHM helped alleviate moving-related stress. I'd definitely recommend!

Highly recommend. Great value and professionalism. I was initially skeptical to hire them because their prices were too good compared to over movers but they exceeded my expectations. I hired four movers and two large trucks to move about 10 miles. I did all of the pre-move packing and just needed a crew to move boxes and all the furniture. They were right on time and finished early. They took a lunch break and didn’t even charge us for the time (sounds trivial but many moving companies charge for the whole time).

San Diego Movers was great. They were very personable and really care about your belongings and listen to your concerns for moving delicate items. They took extra care with my large heavy reclining couch they previous movers didn’t. They were friendly and highly professional. I will be utilizing them again soon to move some appliances, and would recommend them to all friends and family :)

The team was great both guys were very professional and worked very hard the entire 15 hours that they were working and moving for us which was incredible. They got the job done they packed and moved for us everything was moved very carefully and safely nothing was damaged and they made sure to give us a Military Discount which is always nice. I would recommend them to anybody looking for a moving company.

The guys were on time, quiet and very efficient with the move. They loaded the heavy large items first, then moved onto boxes. We were able to fit most of our 2br apartment and garage belongings into 1 load. Their pricing is very competitive and it was very easy to schedule and work with them. They were a HUGE help to us during the move and we were glad to support their small family business. Highly highly recommend!

I was recommended by a friend to use them because her family just used this company. I am completely satisfied I did. My family enjoyed the way they came out to our home to give us a free quote, then on the day of the move, they came 15 minutes early to setup and begin to pack all of our belonging. they disassembled all the beds and saw how they wrapped up in shrink wrap all my big furniture at no extra cost. Well, I saw how all of the movers worked hard and efficiently moved us into our new home easily. they did reassemble all the beds and am completely grateful I hired them. Thanks TNT Moving Services because you made my family really happy and our move stress free as you promised. God Bless.

Joseph and his two sons did an amazing job! They moved my one bedroom apartment and had all of the blankets and supplies to keep everything safe during the move. They are hard workers and worked quickly, as well! I would definitely use them again and recommend them to family and friends.

Matt was very confident he could help me move all of my things into the minivan I was using. I contacted him a few weeks before the move, and a few after to make sure he would be there (I was moving out of state). He allayed my fears and was patient. He and his co-worker cleared my apartment in about 20 minutes and loaded me up. Great job, very nice guy, as was Roger, his co-worker. Would definitely hire Matt again.

The movers were exceptionally polite and efficient despite the job being bigger than anticipated, the drive to LA taking 4 hours due to OC traffic, the storage facility not allowing them the half hour more needed to finish unpacking before closing & a 3 hour drive back! The owner Michael was so patient and kind to me when I flipped out due to the unavoidable & emotionally charged situation (due to the move circumstance), and stored the items not moved until going back the next day! He even insisted on returning the key to my home in person. Very professional. Highly recommended.

Had booked this company for a move to include a one bedroom house and small storage area. After the household items were loaded in the truck, I reminded the movers about the small storage room. They claimed the truck was full and were only able to take a few items from the storage room. I had to rent a U-Haul the next day and pay someone to finish the job.

I can not begin to say how much finding this company changed my life. I had so many big pieces of furniture that I needed to have moved and switched around in my house and they did it with such ease and speed. They were professional and friendly and amazing. I will definitely be recommending them to my designer friends who always need help moving things around on jobs. And for my girlfriends who would rather hire them than ask their spouses or kids. :) Thanks again guys! You were superb.
