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.

Moving can be SO stressful, but Jet Moving And Storage made me almost wish I had more for them to move! They were professional from the start, always responsive, willing to help us understand what the best plan of action was and they did they show up on time. They graciously and swiftly packed everything for us and had the job done very quickly. No hidden fees, friendly service, and people that value time. Nothing upsets me more than movers that purposely work slow because they're getting paid hourly - these guys hustled every second of the way. I've found my moving service, and I know you will too with them. Without a doubt Jet Moving And Storage are the best movers in town. Thank you for a headache free experience!

Easily the best movers I have ever used. I got their name from my friend at work who thought they were also the best movers he had ever used. Every aspect of the move from booking, to confirmation, to the actual move itself was seamless and easy. The movers were fast, courteous and professional. The estimate was reasonable. They sent three men who obviously had lots of experience and carefully handled our furniture. They finished 20 minutes ahead of schedule, under four hours including drive time from locations about 30 minutes apart. Their estimate was spot on. Exactly how a smooth move should be. The attention to detail for care of my items was apparent and they moved everything to my new house without any damages, fast. I mean real fast. I'd totally use them again and again. Thanks for all the help Jet Moving And Storage.

They were very quick and moved things efficiently. I had my things moved into a storage unit and everything was very well stacked and they left a path in between my things, which I very much appreciated. I will be contacting them again for future moves 😊

Very honest, reliable moving company! Jet Moving and Storage helped me through a big overwhelming move, they did it perfectly. They were very organized, and the team worked well together making sure the move was progressing quickly! The movers were professional, fast, and ready to tackle any challenge. These guys were right on time, and even ready to go early if you've got your stuff ready to go. They are very respectful of your place and of your furniture, etc. There were some very difficult pieces of furniture to move in my apartment, but these guys were up for every challenge, and took great care to ensure that there was no damage to the furniture or the building. I would 100% recommend them and use them again. I got many quotes before choosing them and I know I got great service at a great price! Thank you!

The wonderful experience started with me submitting a quote request directly through their Thumbtack page (who knew it was so easy -- thanks Thumbtack!). I got their number and called them. The manager James covered all the questions I had about the move. For context, I'm pretty sure I asked him 100 questions, so appreciated the extra time James spent answering my abundance of questions. Rates were wayyyyyy more reasonable than other moving companies here. The terms and conditions were also crystal clear, no hidden fees, no questionable terms. Based off all of that I booked and made a deposit over the phone. I immediately received a summary email with all the details, best practices for packing, what I was responsible for and what the movers were responsible for and how to best prepare for moving day. To shorten the story my move was fantastic and the movers were highly skilled. I highly highly recommend Jet Moving and Storage as they are very professional in the job.

Jet was phenomenal. So much communication. This is definitely what stands them apart from other moving companies. They are very clear about what you can expect and will send multiple emails checking in & reminding you before the move date. They were also very efficient with time. I don't think I've ever had a mover finish quicker than what was initially quoted. They even kept unloading through the rain. They took great care with my stuff. Understanding things can shift a lot while in the truck but I have not noticed any damages or even missing items (I've noticed both with other movers). I love them & will use them for any future moves.

These guys were such awesome, friendly, hard workers. Jessie and his helper (I think it was Marc .. (sorry I’m not good with names) did an excellent job of communicating with us on the app and in person. Purely Movers are very professional and I would definitely recommend them for any job, big or small! They made our move simple and stress free. They were on time .. friendly, fast, very careful of our things. It was over 100 degrees but these guys got the job done and were nothing but smiles! The move was actually cheaper than the price quoted and I appreciate that Jessie was honest and didn’t try to cheat us like other movers have in the past. I will be using this company again and recommending them to anyone looking to hire movers in the future.

This is the best moving company I've used. They quote you up front. No hidden fees or charges. What they quoted is what you will pay. I cannot express fully how thankful I am for this company! The movers worked efficiently, carefully, and pleasantly. They were respectful of my stuff, unlike other movers that I used before where they would just rush to get the job done. They brought their own dollies and blankets and were so methodical and careful with all my furniture and boxes. I really appreciate that! I highly recommend Jet Moving and Storage! I already booked them for my friend's move for the upcoming weeks. High caliber job at an affordable rate. I'm so glad I found them.

We had a great experience with Jet Moving And Storage! They were friendly, super efficient, Professional and on time. They put runners on the floor to protect the floor and the areas where they were walking back-and-forth. Great job. They moved everything faster than expected and used care in moving things safely. They also wrapped large pieces of furniture with pads and then shrink-wrapped it as well. They were most careful of our home in every regard and were very pleasant and worked non-stop to get the truck loaded. Once they reached our new apartment they rapidly unloaded the truck and placed everything at the place I wanted. If you are reading these reviews trying to pick a mover, Jet Moving And Storage is the best. These guys are professionals, and you will feel the difference.

Great response time. Took extra care to protect my prize piece on this two-item move. They specialize in small moves and arrived via pickup. For the larger hauls (that they do provide far and wide), you have to rent your own truck.

Did a great job. Quick and affordable moving our gym equipment. Highly recommend.

This is the worst company! Do not hire them! 1st off, the movers were supposed to be there to move us at 9:30am.. they never showed up. So, when I called to ask where they were the dispatch guy Chris said he forgot to put me in the schedule. He said he can have someone come move me next week lol I was sitting by the door with all our boxes ready to move to our new place. He said he will call me back to see if he can get a team out to move us. He got someone to come out but they were 2 hours away and I will have to pay for their gas. I asked him to waive that fee as this was his fault I was not added to the schedule. He said if I pay cash he will give me a discount. The movers were not fast they were extreamly slow, most of the time I only saw one guy moving boxes. I had to keep saying are you almost done seeing as that I had to pay hourly. When it came time to pay in cash the guy did not have change for a $20 and told Me to go to a gas station to break it lol. The price changed from$ 403.00 to to $500 because the mover forgot he needed to charge me gas. Such a rip off.. the most terrible, horrible experience ever!

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, I needed to move and knew it was going to be a big job. Moving is never an easy thing. It is full of stress, uncertainty and tons of moving companies to choose from. I am very happy to have stumbled upon Jet Moving and Storage Company though. My move could not have gone any better. The guys gave us a call 15min before arrival, which was still within the arrival time. They were fast, professional, and respectful. They had their own system and knew what worked the best for the move. So, whatever they recommended we went with it. Our move was from a 3rd floor apartment with no elevators to a 4th floor apartment but, they didn't complain one bit. Also, we had a lot of glass furniture that needed to be packed right, nothing was broken, scratched, damaged. Everything left in one piece and came in one piece! They were quick and efficient, while still being very attentive and careful. If you're worried about it being over-priced or that they are going to count up every box or piece of tape they used, don't worry. These guys are over-the-top with customer service and making sure the customer is happy. I felt the move was very reasonably priced. The move went well! Done in 3 hours. The guys worked their behinds off and I appreciate it and I really cannot speak highly enough about this team and company. From the initial communications through email to the confirmation phone call with James, to the end of moving day, these guys know what they're doing and they've earned their 5 star reviews. Thank you for the professionalism and expert service! Will definitely not hesitate to use them if needed, and will 100% recommend them to anyone.

Finding a good moving company has always been difficult - however, Shift It Moving was AMAZING - I never write a review however this moving company would get 10 stars if possible - I needed a walkway in the garage to get to the washer/dryer - never thought it would be possible but somehow Westly packed the boxes neatly and organized in a way that I had more than just a walkway to the washer/dryer - I would highly recommend this moving company - they are professional, courteous, organized, go beyond - example fixed the legs on my kitchen table, connected my computer, etc. plus they have passion for their work - they are not slow in packing or unpacking - All I can say is this company was AMAZING
