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 hired Muscle Movers to move an upright piano. They had a competitive and reasonable price for a quick but difficult job. I noticed immediately how professional and courteous Christopher was over the phone and decided to hire them. The day of the move, they arrived 15 minutes early and completed the job quickly yet carefully. I would hire Muscle Movers again and will also recommend them to anyone that needs a great moving company.

We needed a piano moved from one end of the block to the other, about 6 houses. They moved it down the street on the sidewalk versus a truck since it was such an easy move. Took about a half an hour and it was done! No scratches, no issues! Would recommend them. Nice job.

If I could give 0 stars I would. First, the movers showed up 1.5 hours late. I had to call Tony to ask what was going on, he did not reach out to me like a professional should. Then, after sending several texts and e-mails confirming the price and the items I needed to have moved, on moving day the price increased by $100 b/c he had to rent a truck for a move (without discussing with me since I'd be paying for it). What moving company doesn't already have trucks to get the job done? Then, the mover's nicked the wall out of the apartment I was moving out of, forgot to put the legs back on my couch which they took off and then asked me why I didn't remind them to do their job then said they'd correct it but never showed up to do, AND my furniture got dirty in the move, which I will admit I was forewarned. I HIGHLY advise NOT doing business with this company. Totally unprofessional.

The movers were right on time and were great with getting everything in and out of the truck in a timely manner! I called on a Friday because I had to move the next day and they were able to accommodate.

Last Minute Mover's saved the day for me! I had a new 200 lb laser printer that needed to be moved into my upstairs workspace an no one in sight to help move it. David and Arturo showed up within an hour of my contacting them which was awesome! They were so pleasant, efficient, and concerned about placing the printer where I wanted it. We easily negotiated a very fair price. These guys did a great job, I will definitely call on them again for any future moving needs.

Dre was awesome. Showed up right at the scheduled time and was able to help me move a super heavy treadmill to my room. He was very professional and helpful, and I will definitely reach out to him again for future moving needs.

We used this company in our move in 2016. Damage my wall, door, floor, and refrigerator. We paid $4000.00 and we still had to do our own moving of furniture after that. They did not bother to come back to resolve the issues nor finish the complete move. They were hard to get a hold over the phone afterward. The only thing I give them credit for it replacing the glass table top, which did cost much $25. The company did not even have to travel far for the move (within 10 miles) and we still cost us $4000.
