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 movers were amazing and worked hard to help us move. The only issue I had was that only one person had shoe covers to use when moving in my furniture, and was not used correctly.

I hired the moving and packing services of Scott. Scott was very prompt replying to all my messages (usually within 5 minutes) and we were able to setup a time and date for the move quickly. I requested a specific time for the move to be done because of my unique circumstances, and Scott accommodated the request. 2 movers turned up right on time. They were super friendly and accommodated all my requests. They brought all the packing material and boxes. They spent every minute packing/moving and the move was done very quickly. I highly recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and also use him again for any move.

Ken did a great job taking the stress out of moving. He and his helper were (mostly) on time, very efficient with the move and the right price. He is a nice guy as well, it would be terrific to have him move your stuff.

I am very happy with Adil and Caglar from Smart People Moving. Adil and Caglar know how to move efficiently and ask questions when needed. I particularly appreciate that they verify with me whether something is fragile and take particular care of such items. I had a lot of stuff to move and they worked hard during entire move. I needed to move items to 2 different location and nothing was confused. Would definitely hire them again.

If I could give Albion Moving 10 stars, I would. They are by far the best movers we've used so far, and we plan on using them in the future as well. They came on time, and got straight into moving our furniture. We have some pretty heavy pieces and all of them got moved without any fuss. Most of our upholstered furniture is also white, making it more challenging to move. We got all furniture delivered to our new home, spotless, and without any dings or other structural damage. Two thumbs up for Albion Moving!

Scott was quick to answer any questions I had and we hashed out the details of the move over phone, was quick and professional. The day of the move, they showed up right in the time frame that they'd quoted us for and the move went super fast and smoothly.

Scott and his team were super-professional and also very pleasant. They worked really hard throughout the whole move, got it done in record time with everything intact. Best moving experience we've had. We'll surely be recruiting them for any future moves. Very hard to find folks with integrity and hard work these days especially in the moving business. These folks are top notch.

Best movers I have ever had! They were punctual, responsive, and took great care of my items as they moved them out of a 3rd floor unit and into another 3rd floor walkup. They were completely equipped with everything a mover needs (moving blankets, shrink wrap, mattress covers), their truck was a good size, and they were really fast. I would use them again, no question!

We worked with Smart People Moving a few weeks ago. The movers were efficient and effective at loading/unloading. Furniture wrapping was excellent. Inconsistent mask use.

I had to move a large, heavy Kawai 6’9” GS-50 grand piano from townhouse to townhouse just over 5 miles away. Two Friends Movers helped disassemble, load, unload, and reassemble my piano, all in about an hour! Extremely punctual, professional, easy to work with, and they were very careful with the piano. Moreover, their price was fair and very reasonable! Couldn’t ask for more, and I would move with these guys again. Thanks, Two Friends Movers!

We had to make a local move (~15 miles). Scott & team made the actual moving part by far the easiest part of our move. They supplied clean, good-condition recycled boxes weeks in advance so we could get a jump on packing. They came with their own blankets and wardrobe boxes and worked really fast. Communication was fantastic. Scott was always responsive when I called with questions, and when an unexpected construction surprise delayed our move for a week, he graciously fit us into his schedule. I hope we never have to move again, but if we do, we will call Scott & team!
