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.

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.

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 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 I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

The guys that moved me did a great job. They were sent with a smaller truck than agreed on and the moved had to be done in 2 days, not one load. I agreed to split the difference on the cost of the mix up on their part. The day before they did a great job moving my fiancé without incident.

The workers were a bit lately. The driver pulled his fair share of the way but the second mover was preoccupied with being on his phone most of the day. they didn't take a lunch break. So by 4 p.m. they were exhausted overexerted and moving very sluggish. It caused us to be moving a two bedroom apartment for 12 hours. And between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. the passenger or second mover consistently checked his cell phone. I was exhausted micromanaging them at the end of the day.

I’d like to thank Anthony and his team for helping us move! Anthony was responsive and communicative which I appreciated from start to finish. His team took care of our belongings and packed a 26 ft moving truck to the top and fit all of our stuff w care, professionalism and experience! We couldn’t have done it without them. 3 man team was definitely needed. They did arrive later than planned (40mins) and the job did take longer than I expected (9 hours) so account for that and maybe negotiate per job rather than per hour but it’s hard to anticipate when moving w such a job so I’d rely on Anthony’s expertise, but his team is worth a first call on any moving job!!! His team went above and beyond to drive back, fill up and drop off our truck back 1.5 hours away. Overall, I would recommend Anthony and his team to anyone!!

It was very easy to work with this firm. They weren't the cheapest, but they worked with my tight timeframe and they were very flexible. On the eve of my move, I asked to switch from a 2 man team to a 3 man team and they were able to accommodate me no problem. My move was very straight forward. Most things were in boxes and very little furniture. It was complicated by having to pick up and drop off items at 2 separate locations. No problem for the team. They got it done and nothing was broken or damaged in the process.

I was very happy. The movers were on time and got right to work. Stayed within their quote to me and charged even a little less than the initial quote. I would use them again and refer them to anyone.

Everything went wonderfully. It cost the same amount she quoted me and the 2 guys that helped me move were very polite and did a great job. I don't think it could have gone any better.

I would highly recommend this company if you’re looking for a really good price and want the job done fast. I needed a mover last minute for my brother and this company accommodated us with no hesitation and only about 3 days notice. The 2 young men whom I believe were Sam and Thomas, called yesterday morning and said they could start early (appt was for 10 and they came at 9:45) and they were very professional and respectful and had the job done in 2 hours and with an excellent price. I was very impressed and will be recommending them to anyone I know who needs a move done or any other odd job. Thanks guys you’re awesome keep up the good work!
