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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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 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.

The moving team came on time and carefully moved everything to my new place. Thanks, Sky Moving.

I'm very satisfied with Sky Moving. They showed up on time, were very helpful, were very careful with everything, and never stopped working! They had to move some large pieces of furniture through some narrow doorways, and showed their experience in dealing with it. I could not have asked for a better moving experience. Many thanks to Sky Moving!

We needed to move some heavy items last minute. I was able to secure Man and a van moving company immediately. I more than appreciated the quick response and communication from the movers I was arranging this long distance for my sister, so this was helpful They were punctual and kept me informed on their arrival. I would recommend Man and a van moving company

For a local move, I got professional-quality moving services at a great rate. No scratches, no damage, no drama. Conrad and his helper were efficient and highly organized. They were done ahead of schedule and I would not hesitate to use Conrad again. Highly recommended by someone who moves every couple of years!

This move was ROUGH. Unfortunately our move happened on a rainy day and we were moving into a third floor unit with no elevator. Nonetheless this crew got our stuff into our unit with no scratches. I only took one star away due to the fact that they were about thirty minutes behind and the move took a bit longer than we expected. Overall this is an excellent team and would love to do business with them in the future. Thank you for helping us during this time.

Rick is amazing. I was expecting to just hire some guys to move furniture but Rick came prepared with moving cloth and plastic lining to keep my furniture from getting damaged. He was very respectful and made sure he and his employee always wore a mask. When we move, I plan on hiring him again.

Conrad and his team are professional movers, but they come without the overhead of a big moving company. The bottom-line is they do excellent work at a fraction of the cost. I was very happy with the service, and would recommend them without reservation.

I am so glad I hired Toybox Storage and moving! Rick and his crew were amazing! Showed up on time, worked quickly and efficiently, and were very professional. I had never hired movers before so I was a bit anxious about how it would turn out. Rick was very responsive to calls and texts leading up to the move and the team was very communicative throughout the day of. I felt the price was competitive and reasonable, especially for smaller moves. All around, I highly recommend!

J&G Moving Service will forever be my moving company of choice. Had to do one of the most dreadful things possible, move. I contacted J&G, spoke with Garret who took his time answering my 101 questions and explained everything clearly and professionally. I even had a couple last minute questions about moving particular items; I texted him some pics and he followed up immediately. Moving day, John and crew, Ben and Josh, showed up on-time, and did a fantastic job. We had some challenging items to move (of course most were upstairs) and they met the challenge. These guys were always happy to help no matter how many times we asked them to move a piece of furniture once inside the new place (6 times with a heavy table). The entire operation is clearly run well they are friendly, honest, high-quality, professional, and all of this at a better rate than most companies. Unfortunately, I know I will need to move again in a year, the only bright side is I will get to see the guys from J & G.

I was extremely satisfied with the crew that accomplished my move. They unpacked 3 pod containers and loaded it into their truck, took it to my new apartment , unloaded and placed everything where I asked. The work ethic and professionalism was beyond excellent. I would hire them in an instant without a second thought. I highly recommend Top Notch Moving & Transportation for any moving needs.

For a simple in-house move, They included an additional $40 charge for hauling away appliances in their initial quote. When I explained Disposal services weren't necessary, they asked for gas money to drive to my location... an area they supposedly already serviced. Attempted to schedule the move, they quoted $80 an hour for two people. Turns out it was one person and they wanted me to help move the items. I did not hire them.

Great service and Great value. I could not have asked for better service. I needed a couple heavy couches moved, Alfredo was communicative and arrived on-time. He and Sebastian looked and planned for this tricky move. The couches were heavy and with narrow hallways, turns and stairs the did an impeccable job. They used mats where appropriate and ensured there was no damage to the wall or couches. I was truly impressed. I will definitely be hiring Alfredo again for any moving projects.

Jose and Ivan showed up exactly on time, worked hard all day to move our household from a two story house to a smaller condo, 2nd floor. They had lots of little stuff to move, wrapped and protected everything, we were very pleased.

This moving company did a great job during a difficult time when COVID was a concern. They carefully, thoughtfully, and professionally moved all of my mother's personal belongings and furnishing from a senior living apartment in Oxnard to one in Temecula. I was very happy with their services and so was she!
