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.

Every aspect of the move was perfect. The price quoted was the final price with no hidden costs. Mario and his son Brian were very personal and accommodating. This is rare in the moving business. I was well informed and kept appraised of the status during the move.

Soul and his team did an excellent job with my move! They ensured my furniture was wrapped and packed properly on the truck. Everything was received at my new place in tact. No damage to the walls or doors. These guys were extremely attentive, answered all my questions and took care to place boxes in the appropriate rooms. I highly recommend you use these guys for your next move. I've already given their name and number to my former neighbor and my sister who's moving in a few months.

Don and his team were great. They were professional, worked hard, fast and were available on on very short notice . (sorry it will be a long post, but I have to share how great these guys are). I have a Sleep Number bed and was told by Sleep Number they needed to dissemble and assemble the bed and it should not be movers. However, they wouldn’t give me an appointment that lined up with my move. They insisted they couldn’t disassemble and assemble the bed on the same day. So, I asked Don if he could disassemble the bed and I would hire Sleep Number to assemble the bed. He said “no problem” I told him I could send him a YouTube link on how to dissemble the bed. When Sleep Number called to confirm the appointment 2 days before my move they gave a 8 AM to 11 AM arrival time. I tried to get the time changed to after 12 PM but Sleep Number refused. I sent Don a text advising I would need them to assemble the bed as well. He called me and asked what happened I told him and he said, “no problem”. When his team had arrived and it was time to disassemble the bed, it was obvious he had studied the YouTube link. He was able to not only disassemble the bed with no problems but assemble the bed as well. Also, due my sister recovering from a medical condition, she ‘d been living in my living room for 9 mos. So when I bought my new home I wanted her to move in a couple of weeks before I did. She decided to hire Student Movers but literally two days before her move when she called to confirm and I heard her being talked over and getting the run around. So I called Don told him what was happening. I told him I knew it was last minute but I asked if there was a way he could help. He said “no problem we’re here to help” and they were there and moved my sister. I’m telling you they are good at what they do and great people too!

moving a pool table is expensive and delicate, you need real professionals to do it for you. Don't need to look any further, AV Billiards will take care of everything for you, fast, careful, clean, precise and cheaper than any other company. They also give maintenance to your table.

These guys are AWESOME. They were very professional and the price was perfect. They arrived on time and treated my valuables with the best care. They followed my directions and would ask if unsure. I don't plan to move soon, but if I did I would rehire these guys in a heart beat. You will not be disappointed with them.

I had an overall good experience with this company. The person working dispatch was very accommodating as I had to change my date twice because of some delays that impacted move in date, so I was very appreciative of that. The guys were friendly, arrived on time and completed the job. The only drawback were 1) their shoes messed up my brand new carpet from the constant in and out. I didn’t want to make them stop and remove their shoes each time they went in and out because I had a lot of stuff to move-so although it’s annoying that I now have to get my carpet cleaned after only a week of living in my new place, I understand. 2) They took a little over an hour to eat lunch and travel 5 miles from my storage to my apartment which of course I had to pay for. But again I’m understanding because I was their second job of the day, but I just wish that was clear when we scheduled the appointment so I could better budget for this move. All things considered I would still hire these guys again because these were minor things

So glad I read reviews and verified I was scheduled for the move I THOUGHT I had scheduled for December 3rd. I spoke with Chris Vox two weeks ago to schedule and hadn't heard back for confirmation. I call today and just like a previous review, I was not on the schedule. Buyers beware... it's a hit a miss with the company

Ken helped me pack up a one bedroom apartment and move it from LA to SF essentially. We hadn't finished all the packing before he arrived, and he was very patient and professional with us finishing up the packing as he loaded. We had several antique pieces, and he wrapped the furniture extremely well and transported it carefully. All in all, I'd gladly recommend him again because he's skilled, careful, and professional.

Everything was good and the company workers did a very good job but there was one problem.Overall the workers were very fast hard workers and took care of all of our furniture by wrapping everything so it did not get damaged but there was one thing that happened. We had a China cabinet that has glass shelfs and the guy's did not look inside of it before wrapping it up so when they moved the cabinet on to it's side and I didn't remember if it had glass or wood shelfs two pieces of the glass broke and when we got home and the guy's unwrapped I noticed it was missing two pieces of glass so I asked what happened to the glass and was told that they unwrapped it as they were loading it in the truck and the two pieces of glass were left at the other house. When I went over to the other house NO GLASS so as I suspected the glass was broken and I was not told the truth as my wife was cleaning the cabinet she found small pieces of glass inside. So the reason I am unable to give a better feedback is I was lied to and all the guy's had to do is tell me the glass was broken.
