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.

I really was surprised how fast they were. They really know what they are doing. The cost was so much less than I expected this to be. I don't know why I have never hired moving labor before considering how often I move. This was a very good experience and I will use their service again the next time I move. Thank you!

First of all, I am a tough grader, to get 5 stars from me require 100% flawless perfection. I would give 4.5 stars if available. With that said, I hope my review will help Moving Services as well as any potential customers. Impressive Areas: 1) Scott, the owner, is very experienced, knowledgeable, honest, direct and realistic in his evaluation and estimate. His proposed 2 days move, and that significantly minimized moving pain and related stress. It also make workers more efficient under optimal physical condition. Most other movers underestimate the amount of work it would take to move a 4 bedroom house. Scott demonstrated prudent planning and detail oriented attitude and capabilities. He has also been extremely responsive in communications. 2) No driving time has been charged as we are a 5 minutes local move. The team arrived on time both days, displaying commendable commitment and reliability 3) All our glass and marble tables stay intact and in good pre-move condition 4) Our move has been lower than quotes, and within our original budget Areas for improvement: 1) Out of the 4 movers, 2 were well-seasoned and experienced professionals. The remaining 2 trainees, however, have been less competent and require extra instructions. They wasted some back and forth travel time finding missing screws for the master bed. Also, our master bed have been installed in the wrong direction, and did require us to change orientation later. Again, this is not a major issue, just the fact as is 2) We have many drawers, and some of the little steel dots used to facilitate easy-gliding of the drawers fell apart during move. The drawers still useable, just not as smooth as pre-move There are some inevitable damages due to move, and Moving Services have tried their best to minimize them. In summary, we still believe we have made one of the best choices available.

Excellent service provided by the movers. They came on time, did the packing and loading without even wasting a single moment, and then quickly did the loading in the new place. The movers worked super fast and did the packing, loading and unloading making sure that all items are safe and there was not a single scratch in any of them. I would definitely reach out to them again whenever we plan to move next.

Please only use this service if you would like your move to be anything less than “happy” or you enjoy getting yelled at in your own home. I am shocked at the amount of positive reviews this moving company has considering how awful their customer service was. I am not even sure if any of these reviews are real so here’s mine so you can make an informed decision to pass on this company. 1) The movers were over an hour late to the move and Tony (the manager) said that they stopped to get McDonald’s. There was no remorse for this and we did not even receive a discount for the delay. 2) When asked on the phone we asked that we’ll need help with assembly for one of the beds and they spent 20 minutes going back and forth with us only to refuse. 3) The cherry on top was getting YELLED at for tips. We paid $60 for a 3.5 hour job which was fair considering their lack of help with assembly or their delay and one of the movers would not leave our property if we did not pay him $70. As a woman I was terrified and felt bullied in my own home. I would be willing to overlook these faults had the customer service been better or if we received a partial refund but Tony completely deflected responsibility and said it was the movers fault not the moving company even though he is hiring the movers. Super disappointed and would avoid entirely.

The moving experience with Leclair was amazing. First, it was easy to contact them and have all my questions answered. They provided me with a clear summary of charges and services included. The move day, the movers arrived on time and did an amazing job. They were masked and followed covid 19 guidelines and handle all my stuff with care. The made the process smooth and efficient. I'd definitely recommend their services. They were nice, hard working and professional.
