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.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

After a very stressful move from St. Louis to Cali Mike and Shaw helped ease my anxiety by being extremely professional and they took care of my stuff. It was one of the best moving experiences I've had and I have moved a lot. If you need help moving and want to be confident that it will be done well, you should hire Mike & Shaw!

Definitely the mightiest movers! I move a lot and usually travel alone so trust and quality are important to me. If these are important to you too, you should hire Donald and Joe. They handled my household items and boxes with care ; they came prepared with a large truck including dollies, blankets and plastic wrap ; lightning speed communication ; strong! ; no complaints ; fair pricing — ok to settle on price up front (there are movers who add $200 just because of the walk or the stairs) ; and a bonus: kind (not pompous like some). I just moved last night and I’m happy.

We will be starting tomorrow for the moving process. As it sits at this moment because we have not met or moved yet. The process of getting this started with cloud 9 is awesome. They have worked with us so far. Very nice and courteous. Very generous and kind. Moving is very hard work. When this is all done, I will be able to write a review. But, so far I have zero complaints and only good words.

You quoted me one price and I paid another. You took your time packing and moving me. You broke my door and then blamed it on the small nails yet upon moving in there was no damage so it was you. And then when unpacking, my kids clothes were thrown on the floor after emptying the wardrobe box.

These guys were amazing! Good communication both initially and follow-up en route. They were polite, professional and safety conscious. Had their own masks, too, which I greatly appreciated. It can't be easy moving two refrigerators in 100+ degree heat, but they did, and did it well. I'll definitely call Muscle Movers again!

I can't say enough about the crew that completed my pack and my move 3 days ago. They were very prompt. I had 3 movers and they got right to work and worked straight through till we got it all loaded up in the truck and left for the new place. They took a super stressful time and made it about as easy as possible for me, which has value beyond words. I didn't have to worry about a thing and they took care of literally everything, including reworking my furniture at the new place even after it was in. I've used movers every year I've moved over the last 6 years and these guys were pros. I truly can't say enough about them. They're really hardworking, thorough, polite, and fast. I was really impressed. The rate was super fair and I couldn't be more pleased with how it went. Definitely will use them again (though after looking at all these boxes and finally getting settled I hope it won't be for a few years for my sake!). Strongly recommend them to anyone who's looking for a solid team who works hard and gets the job done.

The guys were great. Incredibly hard working group with a very good attitude for customers care. What kept me from giving a full 5stars was ,for my move we really needed 2 trucks vs the one and organization. I appreciated how they did everything they could to keep my home and belongings protected, but the flow of boxes in was the priority because space was the issue, that made for a very difficult offload. I would use this group again and do recommend them because of this hard work and character, but I would also recommend being involved (supervising) in the move.

Frank and Gustavo were both pleasant and professional. Took extra care when dismantling and moving my pool table while working under time constraints. Great job! Will definitely recommend and use again in the near future. Thank you.
