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.

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’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. 

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 do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Chad and Will are the best movers I have ever hired. I needed very heavy appliances and tables moved upstairs / downstairs from one house to another. Chad responded very best with a very clear quote and great explanations of their services. They were very punctual and arrived on time. Chad and Will were super friendly and easy to work with, they did their best to accommodate my requests and took extra care to make sure my appliances were protected during the moving process and also while in transit. They were very careful to protect my walls during the moving process. Everything was moved in a manner that was way better than I could have expected. I won't hesitate to use them again if I have another moving job in the future! 👍👍👍👍👍

I wish I had taken photos of their work. I had a 600lb (5.5’x4’) dresser that needed to be moved from the second story down a curved flight of stairs. Considering the initial feat it took to get it up there, I was expecting the worst getting it down. I half expected it to go over the railing, ending up in a million pieces, etc. but it didn’t. The Mad Movers handled it with strength and precision. It made it down and across town without a scratch, even though I had unintentionally lubed it up with pledge prior to their arrival (oops). Each of my other pieces were expertly wrapped and taken well care of. Mad Movers are Manteca’s go to Movers.

Jaime and his movers are FANTASTIC!!! I contacted 6 other piano moving companies and am so happy to have found California Movers! BEST PRICE TOO!!!! I erroneously thought I had purchased a baby grand piano, but it was much bigger...a MAJOR GRAND!!! Jaime didn't bat an eyelash! He professionally picked up the massive piano, arrived at my home promptly and assembled the piano without charging me extra!!!! Once my beautiful piano was assembled and placed where I wanted, he proceeded to disassemble my baby grand and wrapped and transported that one another 100+ miles to Roseville. Jaime and his movers were absolutely awesome! Given the weight and dimensions of the piano, it was quite an undertaking, to say the least, but the transport, unloading, and set-up were done with great care and precision. My piano arrived carefully wrapped and in pristine condition, and Jaime was meticulous when fastening the legs and positioning the piano for me! The baby grand to be moved out of my home was also done with great precision and care! They were extremely professional, courteous, kind and hard-working! Honestly, if I ever need anything heavy moved, not only pianos, but ANYTHING I'm calling Jaime!!! THANKS JAIME AND LALO AND YOUR MOVERS... YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!!!!

I had just one large piece of furniture I needed moved and had a hard time finding help. Chad responded quickly and was able to help me same day not long after first contact since we’re in the same city. We were able to negotiate a price since it wasn’t his typical day long type of move and I really appreciated that.

We hired Mad Movers to move 2 heavy pieces we had just purchased and couldn't unload. Chad contacted the next day and set up an appointment to come the same day. They arrived on time. Looked over the work we wanted done and got to work. They finished everything we wanted them leaving everything in place. We will certainly recommend them for any thing you need done.

I needed furniture picked up in three locations, and moved into a studio apartment. Other than confusing stop #2 for stop #1, the driver was professional and quick. I would use them again.
