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.

By far the best moving company out there!!! This is my second time moving and they are 10 times better. I will definitely be using them when I move again. They were on time, very professional and clean. The move out and move in was beyond excellent. Two man team of a mover and handy man even got my tv mounted. On top on all that they aren’t bad to look at ladies :)

This team was very efficient and patient. They kept me informed each step of my move. The estimate was spot on, and there was no extra charge for fuel that other moving companies charge. They were on time and a good value. I highly recommend them for your move.

So glad I found muscle movers. They were able to show up for me to do a last minute move. I booked them the day before and they were so easy to communicate with and responded immediately. They had no problem moving all of my items and they were so quick and efficient and wasted no time. I would definitely recommend hiring them to do your move!

Donald & Frank were just amazing! The reason I choose them was because of their great reviews. I am telling you these two were just outstanding to work with. They showed up on time and worked their butt off. Moving can be so stressful, but my experience with Mighest Movers was stress-free and enjoyable. ( as much as moving can be ) I hope I never have to move again, but if I do I will definitely be calling Donald. Thank you, guys!

The move was scheduled for 7AM. They arrived late at 7:30. The main reason I scheduled the move for 7AM was to avoid the traffic. We were moving from Riverside to Irvine on a Saturday. I was understanding of the 30 minute delay. Afterwards Benjamin needed to take 30 minutes to prepare to go to work, putting his back support brace on, exercise, and organizing items already in the truck to prepare to load my things. By the time two of them are working and hour from the original start time has lapsed. Ben first question to me upon arrival was do you have a Galaxy phone, mine is dead, I need a charge.? And no I don’t have a Galaxy phone. It didn’t end Ben was constantly on his phone. He then asked to use the restroom. Ok, fine of course you can use the restroom Ben. It was nice and clean as I mentioned before we were moving long distance. As a result of us moving long distance we cleaned the entire apartment, which would enable use to return for a final walk through completing our terms of the lease with no further tasks. Well Ben urinated on the floor of the bathroom and I had to clean the floor. Thanks Ben! In all fairness I want to say his partner worked diligently throughout. If it weren’t for him the move would have never been completed. I truly feel sorry for him. He got the short end of the stick. We have moved several times in the last four years. We moved our daughter to college with movers. And have had plenty experience with movers Ben was the worst. Our items arrived in tact and that was awesome.

We hired this company off of Thumbtack. We had a quick move to unload a van into a storage unit. I was very careful to check the pricing on their services ($90/hr). I also told them that this would be a quick local move (figuring this would take less than a whole hour but we would pay for the full hour regardless and then a tip). I am disabled so my wife met with the moving van. They were done in 20 minutes. At that point, they informed my wife that there was a three hour minimum for their services. ON SITE, AFTER THE MOVE. We were stunned. We said that this was never discussed and showed them their profile and rates on Thumbtack but they were insistent. We showed them the messages of our conversation but they could not be persuaded. Regardless, we came to an arrangement, but it was WAY over the other offers I got for this 20 minute move. I would never hire these people again. Regarding the move itself, it was great. But their business practices were underhanded.

MGB Relocations were great! They helped my parents move from a 5 bedroom home into a much smaller one. They were professional and friendly and paid attention to the smallest of details. They were extremely helpful on both ends of the move. I highly, highly recommend their services.

Pro Delivery & Towing is one of the best companies I have ever worked with and better than other movers I have used in thr past. Patric and his assistant were efficient movers that were professional and customer service oriented. They were also helpful in moving a few large and difficult pieces of furniture without damaging anything. Their expertise and professionalism are greatly appreciated and I would definitely use them again and recommend them to others.

I messaged the company prior to my move with questions and always received a quick espouse. The movers arrived on time both for pick-up as well as drop off. I had some large heavy furniture so I had concerns about it getting into my new home without damage but am pleased to say it all got in with NO damage to the home or the furniture. The movers were courteous, polite, honest and extremely professional. I highly recommend MGB Relocations!

I put out a request for a piano mover and within a very short time Tony contacted me. I provided the details for the move including dimensions of the piano and the staircase. I received a quote and we had a pickup and delivery setup for the next day. Tony and his assistant arrived early, and they courteous and professional. Tony was the second piano mover that I had contacted. The first one was a joke. I'm so glad I found Tony because he made it easy and affordable.

Wesley and crew were great. They moved everything with care and attention. They brought all the tools needed and a large enough truck to fit everything. I was very satisfied with the quality and speed of their work. They even helped me disconnect and install appliances (washer, dryer). I would use them again with any future move!

Mario and his team were professional, efficient and hard working. They came to my home and got started quickly with helping us move. They provided wardrobe boxes and wrapped all delicate furniture with moving blankets and plastic wrap. The move was tedious for us, but they made it much easier and less strenuous. They only took 6 hours to help us move our entire home and place everything in our new home. Mario and his team were on time and worked diligently. What impressed me was at the end when they were all done, he had me look into his truck to inspect to be sure they had removed all of our personal items and furniture from the truck, from any left over boxes, etc. He was very professional! I would definitely recommend him!
