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.

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 much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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 movers we initially hired with Marvelous Movers didn't show up... Safe Moving company saved our day! Brandon was quick with our last minute request, reasonable, and professional, and his movers did a great job getting our truck loaded and unloaded! We definitely recommend Safe Moving for your next move!

Kevin and Dairy are great movers. I asked for them in particular and was very happy with my move.

Able to get everything moved and even more items that the crew agreed to move even though I did not think that they would move some items. I think that since the move was less than 10 miles and they would be done in less than the 3 hour minimum. They volunteered to do more.

Safe moving came to my rescue with very short notice. They were on time, friendly, fast, effective, and made the whole move rather enjoyable, if that's possible! I would, and have, recommended them to everyone that I know of who needs to move.

Hired Safe Moving for out of state move. Brandon (owner) was extremely accommodating with invoicing and scheduling due to the state reimbursement requirements. Very helpful and friendly and returned calls promptly. Very competitive pricing. Pleasure to work with and he will be the first mover I call in the future. Elijah and Junior were timely, friendly and careful. Most of all, quick and focused on the job at hand. They loaded a 2 bedroom in exactly 2hrs and unloaded in 1.5hrs. Safe moving provided a very pleasant moving experience. They come highly recommended

Ken was very responsive and his rates are quite reasonable. We met with one of the movers for an estimate and he was punctual and professional. The job was odd, a very small move of some equipment odds and ends. If I had gone with a bigger moving company they would have charged me a ridiculous minimum amount and a bunch of other fees. Ken's price was a straight hourly rate. When moving day came, the guys were right on time, and took care to move my things carefully. They worked really hard and were super friendly. I definitely recommend them and would use them again!

You may have heard the saying "less is more". Keeping this short, but the guys who showed up, Larry and Steven, did a wonderful job. They were on time, professional, and worked very hard. I tried to make things easy by having everything packed and moved into one area. I even wrapped the items I wanted to prevent getti g scratched. However, a few items were wrapped by the movers because they wanted to take extra precaution. It took just over 3 hrs to complete the move of my 2 BR apt. I moved from an upstairs unit, and the new place was about 25 min away. I will certainly refer Safe Moving to anyone who is planning a move. Thanks again, Ulysees

The two movers were on time, careful, patient, and polite, and even though the move was only yesterday, I have already recommended them to a friend who is moving soon. I also felt like they were a really good value. I will call them for sure the next time I need either a big or small job.

We are overall very happy with the price and service of Safe Moving. The movers were prompt, incredibly efficient, helpful, and accommodating. However, once we started to unpack, we noticed several boxes that were clearly marked 'fragile' ended up at the bottom of stacks, sometimes upside down. This was our first time using professional movers, so next time I will probably set aside fragile boxes to transport myself.

They showed up on time and got to work right away. Protective blankets were used and furniture was wrapped to make sure the blankets stayed in place. When we got to the new place they asked where we wanted things placed and even moved a bookcase multiple times when asked. Before leaving they double checked to see if we needed anything else moved or changed up or anything at all. They even moved and hooked up my washer, dryer, and fridge!
