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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Murrieta movers
Chris O.
My experience with Mike &Shaw Packing and Moving has been Great! They removed the the stress, which is commonly associates with moving. My move was unique because of the distance which was over 400miles one way. Mike and Shaw Packing and Moving company went above and beyond for me and completed the move in a single day. Customer service is paramount and they deliver results. I've used moving companies in the past but never experienced moving like this before. I highly recommend Mike and Shaw Packing and Moving company for any move you may have. They will cater to your needs.

I never thought I'd be raving about a moving company, but Jet Moving and Storage company exceeded every possible expectation I had. Nobody likes moving, and frankly most moving companies often frustrate the process. But from start to finish my experience with Jet Moving and Storage company was superb. Not much else to add beyond what has already been said many times in other reviews. Jet Moving and Storage is easily the best moving company I've ever used. Chris and his crew were amazing, and took extra precautions during COVID.

Their rates were lower and they were the only company that could give a specific time for delivery which was important to me. I was very pleased with the whole move. They would definitely be my first choice for moving my piano again and for other moving services that they offer.

NOMAD was excellent! I needed to book movers on short notice, and they were available when I needed them. Three movers arrived early to scope the move and they were very nice! They got right to work and were extremely professional throughout the entire time. They took good care of my belongings with no damages. I would DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone looking for movers who are reliable & courteous!

Wesley answered all questions promptly. When our move was delayed, he found time in his schedule to move us a few days later. I got three estimates for our move and none came close to his price. No hidden charges. Price quoted was the price we paid. Very friendly and exceptional service.

Wow! There are no words that can fully describe how amazing this company is! We wanted a stress-free moving experience for moving from Murrieta to Hemet. We contacted a handful of moving companies for quotes and Jet Moving and Storage was the most reasonable and highly professional with the process. We decided to go with them to pack us up, move us and unpack. The first crew arrived on time and was very fast and organized. They packed up and secured everything for transport the next day. I thought we'd have to sleep on our air mattress but they assured us that they can leave the bed as is until the next day. This made for an excellent night of sleep before moving day. The second crew was unbelievable! I've never seen a moving truck get filled so quickly. Before I knew it, they were done and off to our new house to unload. They did a great job from beginning to end. They ensured all the walls and floors were protected. They provided wardrobe boxes for our closet full of clothes. This was my first moving experience where NOTHING was broken or damaged. I highly recommend them.

Our first movers decided not to show up today and we scrambled together and posted on Thumbtack. These guys responded right away and let us know they were just finishing a job then could come right over. It took 5.5 hours to move but they were very professional and wrapped all of our big items and moved our stuff carefully. Thank you for your help. Hire these guys.

Moving is rarely a pleasant experience and Jet Moving And Storage movers came as close as they could to making it one. They left us impressed and feeling like they were worth every penny and then some! Exceptional customer service, they were responsive and provided a quote almost immediately. Contact information was provided in advance so that we could be updated on when they would arrive. The moving team was friendly, attentive, and accommodating. They moved our 2-Bedroom apartment in just a few hours with tons of care and professionalism. Some of the furniture items were extremely heavy and awkward, and it was also pouring rain that morning--but they managed just fine. They were careful with our fragile items, and took care in wrapping and padding the furniture in blankets and plastic wrap as needed. We had boxed all small items ourselves prior to the move, and it ended up being about 105 cartons--some of them extremely heavy with books, magazines and stacks of dishware. But they handled it all without a problem. Fred was our primary contact, and his expertise put us at ease with the entire process. He oversaw the loading of the truck, and it was obvious that the 4 men handling our items listened to and respected him. The move-in in Murrieta went just as smoothly. All the furniture arrived in perfect condition, and not a single box was crushed or even dented. During the couple of weeks it took for us to get everything unpacked, we never found a single broken item. I could not get over how easy and stress free Jet Moving And Storage movers made the process! Thank you!

The movers showed up late due to unforeseen circumstances but their customer service was fantastic and I felt like my concerns were heard and taken care of appropriately. The 3 movers worked their butts off and did not sit around around or move slow ever. They were all 3 so incredibly nice and we had a great day. Every single item arrived at our new house just like we left it. I feel like the price was so affordable for the amount of work done and time spent! I will definitely be recommending this company to any of my friends or family that move in the future.

Very professional. They took the time to individually wrap all the table parts before storing in my garage. Have moved this table twice before and neither mover had this much caring in their work. Would highly recommend California Billiards for your pool table needs.

We were scheduled to move at 12pm. The movers never showed up. We called Allen and he said he was trying to figure it out and then never even called us back. My husband and I both took off work and had to be out of our place that day!!! We were screwed. Thank goodness we found another company that was available last minute and the were awesome! They were cheaper too. Beware of cloud 9 movers!

I was at first reluctant to move during a time like this, but these guys were really kind and professional. They made my moving extra fast and convenient. I was worried about the likeliness of things being dented on narrow staircases, but we went without any casualties. They also disassembled my furniture pretty quickly. At the destination they asked where everything should be put and rebuilt everything incredibly efficiently. Also Jet Moving and Storage is quite budget friendly. HIGHLY recommend this company. THANK YOU for providing such an AMAZING CREW!!!

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Jet Moving and Storage. My boyfriend and I were hesitant to hire movers as we've heard and experienced some horror stories, but I can say with certainty that I will be asking for Jet Moving and Storage again. They were exceptionally quick and were done almost an hour earlier than expected. It helped that they also showed up ten minutes early! Although they were quick, they were also careful. They took amazing care wrapping all of our furniture and packing the stuff gently and efficiently. On top of that Pierce and Adam were two of the nicest guys you could spend your morning with. I can't wait to recommend them to anyone thinking about moving.

We’re so glad to go with Elite moving for our move. They didn’t just moved our stuff and dropped off to let us hanging with our stuff, they dissembled and assembled everything back to where we requested, mounted TVs, and installed our appliances (washer and dryer) which could’ve cost us hundreds dollar more if we had to pay separately for other people to install and mount. They did the works and full service set.. They were great to work with, kind honest people and yes they went to work. They didn’t casually take their time only to overcharge you. Unfortunately we wouldn’t be moving any time soon so we can’t hire them again but def recommend them for the work they do. Thank you again Leo for all your help!

Donald was friendly and responsive via phone/text from our first interaction. He was transparent about pricing and my move (all the way out in Murrieta!). He followed up to confirm the day before my move. He and his partner were prepared and well-equipped on my move day. They wrapped every piece of furniture! Not one item was damaged and not one wall was scuffed. They took apart and put back together every bed and even re-hooked up my washer & dryer. These guys were fantastic! Worth every dollar.
