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.

Steve and his team were amazing. They helped us with the move on a busy Saturday and kept us updated all along about the expected time of arrival. His team perfectly co-ordinated our move, and completed the move in much lesser time than we expected. Any other mover would have definitely taken atleast double the amount of time that Steve and his team took for moving everything in our one bedroom house. The best part-No hidden fees, he took exactly the amount that he had quoted earlier. If possible, I would have given him more than five star rating for their professionalism, cleanliness, politeness, and the extra effort they took to make our move a very smooth experience. Kudos to Steve and his team. Undoubtedly the best moving experience we had out of five times we have moved in last four years

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.

Move was done by Joe and Gerry. Joe was the lead. 1. Bad attitude right from the time Joe asked me to sign the authorization to move. No explanation of paperwork to be signed, just sign it. 2. Called me a liar a few times along the way. 3. Argued about which things he wanted to move and which ones he didn't. I tried to put a couple of costco garbage bags with leftover stuff in the truck before they closed it, he refused. SAid it's his truck not mine and he decides what goes in. And he refused to move a few things from the top floor saying they didn't wanna climb the stairs to load every little thing. 4. Told him the reason I hired him is to move ALL the stuff, that's the function of a mover. Told him I didn't like the repeated bad argumentative, confrontational attitude, there's no reason for it. He's providing a service and I'm paying for it. I asked him why he was acting like he was moving me for free or doing me a favor. I was paying exactly what he asked for, which is $96/ hr for 2 movers. 5. Furniture is not covered from start to finish. It is covered only in the truck, during the drive time. It is not covered when they load it in the truck and when they unload it from the truck. My furniture was damaged. 6. Hired this mover based on Thumbtack reviews. Leads me to believe the reviews are being 'cleaned'. Won't be hiring from Thumbtack anymore. Hired from Thumbtack 2 times and it was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE each time. If you don't know, now you know. 7. Took the time to post this so others are aware. We all look at posts to see which vendor we can work with. If you're thinking I'm looking for a PERFECT mover, that doesn't exist. I've moved myself a few time, it's a tough job. Basic professionalism and courtesy will do. And a 'will do the job because I'm getting paid for my time in full' attitude.

I have moved at least 5 homes in the country, and as the previous reviews including mine indicate, Scott made sure my move went completely hassle free. The amount of wrapping and tape used to ensure nothing was damaged was insane.All movers were extremely meticulous, and really jolly people to communicate with. Our Tri-level town home has about 40 stairs total,and not once did anyone complain. I have never seen any business where I was promised 3 movers that I paid for, but got 5 movers on site to help out. Scott didn't even charge me a dime extra for having 5 people work on the job. Scott called me in advance to explain how they will move everything, took an inventory and execute bang on per plan. An entire home in 5 hours including double drive time is just unheard of. All movers were professional. They even took permission to use the restrooms. I would hire them again in a jiffy. I wish I had more cash on hand to top everyone but pretty much have all the cash I had (about $20 per person). No wonder this business has 5 stars!!

This review is for owner not the two guys that moved our belongings. Missed on ALL the contracted points...An hour and a half later. Even with phones, not updated on delay in arrival time, until I phone him. Guys came unprepared, no piano dolly, or knowlege of how to move a piano. Our furniture was moved fine but piano was damaged due to being sled on pads and not on a specific piano dolly made for this purpose. Had to wait while owner called in other worker to come over and reassembly piano. Shame on owner for BAD service!!!!!!

Steve was extremely responsive and called me after exchanging messages to make sure we were all set for my move date. He was very considerate and patient, even though I was giving him & his team some pretty loose directions that kept changing (I was moving SOME things from a storage unit into an apartment and wasn’t sure what I wanted to bring). Very honest too and an overall nice guy. I’d recommend working with Steve if you ever need help moving!

Main Movers was extremely professional and prompt from the move I contracted them from the Bay Area to Los Angeles. On-time and actually below the quote they gave us. They had a professional contract and were very efficient. I would highly recommend there service. They actually came out and inspected the house before moving us I had a very bad experience with a mover before these guys (A company called "A better Moving Solution") This other company was a complete FRAUD and there account was been taken down from Thumbtac. My mistake with a "A Better Moving Solution" was that I did not request a copy of there CA drivers license. If anyone ever tries to use a very small cut-rate organisation that does not use there own truck, make sure they send you a copy of there CA drivers license. If your looking at this Mr Deon Bell ... your a FRAUD who should be held criminally liable. He uses Rocket Lawyer for his on-line contract ... another mistake I mad was I did not do a reverse lookup of his IP address, it showed the contract was initiated in Modesto and not Sacramento like he claimed. Kudos to Thumbtrac for immediately deleting his account. He uses the name Deon Bell and his Burner phone number is 1-916-280-8074 ... He will try to go by another name so be careful. He also uses the following email address LAMDEONBELL@GMAIL.COM and one other phone number.

The two guys that came to my house were really nice and carefull with everything; however we have contracted THREE guys for the moving because we knew how muh stuff we have. They came in only two guys and with a small truck that they had to do two trips with our stuff because it didnt fit in one trip. They arrived 1:30 late and my moving took so long to be done. After so many errors they at least gave us a great discount. If you book with them I would call them every day to confirm how manymovers you want and the trucks size until your moving day.

I was tensed as I have to move out from my 2Bed apartment in a week notice and was searching for movers who would be reliable and also reasonable. After sending to multiple provider I went ahead with Donna's team and I am glad I did that. She was very responsive and provided the quote and explained the way they work. Her team was on time and was quick and made sure none of the items were damaged. They are professionals and I would recommend them to all thumbtack users.
