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.

I have moved multiple times in the last few years and Velazquez Movers were by far the best movers I’ve ever had. They were punctual, professional, kind and had a great attitude. I would highly recommend them for your move!

Rhino Moving is great. We called on Wednesday to schedule a Saturday move and they were available at 9am. Kendall, Eugene and Derek were amazing! They showed up on time, wrapped everything, moved quickly and efficiently, and were friendly to work with. We highly recommend Rhino Moving!

This was an unexpected move that I didn't have much time to think about, and Move Central made it all happen with hardly any effort on my part. Daniel called me on a Sunday afternoon to explain the process, costs and planning, and was able to fit my move into the schedule within 3 days. The crew packed my entire house in one day and moved it all the next. Everyone was on time, efficient, neat and careful. The entire move went smoothly and Anthony and his crew were a pleasure to work with. Moving is never fun, but Move Central took all the pressure off. Thank you!

Roman's team was prompt, professional and efficient. They moved my mom's 2 1/2 BR house into a 10 x 10. Something my fiancée and I couldn't do without true professional movers. Thank you Dominant Moving Company.

Professional and punctual, but the packing process was slower than it should have been for the price of 3 movers. Too much time was spent by 2 movers disassembling and wrapping (excessively) all unboxed items while the third mover spent much of his time in the truck, waiting for the others and/or answering calls. No time was wasted during the drive, and our city-center, 4th floor move-in was expertly handled. No breaks, no scratches, 2-3 small marks on walls will require touch-up. Very responsive to our efforts to protect a potted plumeria during the move.

I had planned a short move of boxes into storage and my other moving company fell through. Velazquez was able to fit me into their schedule with two days notice, which was a relief. They arrived on time and moved the boxes quickly, safely, and efficiently into my storage space. I look forward to hiring them again.

Normally when you read reviews about moving companies they are very bad. I researched a lot of moving companies for my upcoming move and I settled on Rhino moving. I promptly was contacted by Mr. Racila and scheduled a walk through of our place. I forgot to set my alarm and slept through the initial walk through. Mr. Racila came to my house and I never woke up. I felt terrible but he said don't worry I will come back and the next day he did a walk through and gave me a good quote for how long it would take. I thought his estimated time was a little high but I accepted the quote and signed with him. Moving day is here. Troy, Jamie, and Mike came promptly at the scheduled time and did not start the meter on pricing until the truck was backed in and their moving tools were unloaded. They made quick work of the items and packed very meticulous. They wrapped all the furniture in blankets and nothing had a scratch on it. They packed a huge moving truck full and filled every nook and cranny of the truck. They were very nice and personable and very helpful unlike other movers I have encountered in the past. I highly recommend Rhino Movers and if I move again will be contacting them again!

Movers did come in time but they took unnecessary long time to pack and unpack, we almost packed everything previous day, still they took 8 hours to complete just a single bedroom move. It was disappointing!

There was a bit of a mix-up with communication, and what type of move it was going to be (in house, or house to house) but i'll liken that to the fault of the app. Otherwise, Aleks and his partner were outstanding. They were able to move my piano with less than 24 hpurs notice, and did not use the rain (or the confusion with the move-type via the app) as an excuse. They showed up, ready to make it happen, and got it moved 23 miles in less than an hour, and without any damage to the piano. These dudes are seriously top notch, the best at what they do. Don't look anywhere else. Also, extremely nice and mindful of your space. Fun fact, both are professional boxers.

We Haul exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend them! They called to confirm all of the details the day before the move, including addresses, times and any other requests we had. They called when they were on the way and showed up on time. The move was very efficient including the disassembly and reassembly of our bed, which turned out to be the most difficult part of the move. At the new place, they explained very calmly and professionally why an old couch would not fit through the doorways downstairs without damaging the walls after trying several times to make it work, then they offered to dispose of the couch for us. Lifesavers! Thank you all for making this a fun move and our most enjoyable one yet!!
