Our company, unlike many others, is built upon a foundation of 'customer service.' What does this mean? Well in a nutshell, we treat your pricing and belongings as though we were moving ourselves. We try to keep the costs reasonable and affordable while simultaneously taking care not to damage anything along the way while still working quickly and efficiently. We keep the client's cost in mind. Whether helping the client to select the right services, or even how-to go about the move, we help keep the costs of moving as affordable and cost effective as possible. We wouldn't want to spend our life savings to move, so why should you? No one should have to dig into their kids' college funds or their retirement account to move. Dealing with clients and packing the trucks. We deal with a variety clients on a day to day basis. Oftentimes, they are clients who under no circumstances would be able to make the move happen on their own. That's where we come in. We treat each client like a friend or family. We make sure that at the end of the service, they are happy with every element of the move. As for packing, we often hear our clients say "Wow, you guys are great! It's like that game....you know, the one with the shapes!" All we can do is smile at that point. But they're right. Packing a truck efficiently is like a game of Tetris. And you need to do it right. Packing a truck incorrectly can lead to damage to the clients articles, which isn't good for either party. By packing efficiently, you not only save room, but you save time. Packing haphazardly only leads to having to repack, reorganize and possibly try to repair damages. Do it right the first time and you'll keep the client's, as well as your own, stress levels to a minimum.See more

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.

Reviews for La Quinta movers
Nick B.
Our (quoted) 10-12 hour move turned into a 27 hour nightmare...yes, our move took 27 hours over a two day weekend. Our team of 3 movers arrived late, but began working immediately upon arrival. One of the 3 ended up getting sick within an hour or so and had to lay down in the truck for the rest of the day. Mind you, this was all during the covid quarantine...so we were a bit concerned about what was happening. After 2 long days of moving, we were left with a bill that was double what we were quoted and several expensive pieces of furniture that were damaged, not to mention wood floors that were gouged at our new place. When we notified the movers of the damage, they were unfazed. We brought our concerns to the attention of the owner and he graciously offered $500 off of our NEXT move. Uh, no thanks...we will not be using these guys again. Beware...if something sounds too good to be true...it is. I’m happy to discuss in further detail should anyone have questions.

He helped us haul some flooring in his pick up. He had the most reasonable rates. He hauled the floor and unloaded it, even did me a few added favors of counting the boxes and helping me move another item while he was there. Really nice and professional. I definitely recommend N My Lane for any moving needs
