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.

Nemer, and his crew showed up at the house early, and they were very professional. I was moving my three bedroom house to another three bedroom house. They packed up all of my things and they were very careful with my glass dishes, mirrors, and the furniture arrived without any dings or scratches. I was very satisfied with the move, and these guys are very hard workers. I would definitely hire them again, and I would recommend them to anyone who is moving.

I scheduled another company(found on thumbtack as well) and was sent an email at 4am THE MORNING OF MY MOVE, that they would not be able to move us due to truck problems. Unbelievable. Thank goodness for Alysha (sp?) and her family of hard working men. We had a small apartment and a storage unit to move. Not only did the work late to squeeze us in and save the day, but they knocked it out in half the time the company that moved us previously did, all while using extreme care for our stuff! Can't say enough about how awesome they are and how grateful I am. My only regret is not using them as our FIRST option. If you are reading this, please don't make the same mistake we made.

Nick is fantastic and very reasonably priced. I had bought furniture at a yard sale and had no way to move it. -I had one helper and no truck- He worked with me on scheduling time among all the people involved and was at the yard sale house before me! We got everything moved which included rearranging other furniture and taking apart and putting back together some of the new things. He was very careful with everything. A really nice guy. My room looks great. I'm very happy. Whenever I need help with moving, Nick will be my first call. Thanks Nick.

Having experienced two moves in 3 months, I can say without a doubt that 24 Hour Moving was a cut above the other guys. They were punctual, their communication leading up to the move was excellent as well. One thing that set them apart is that they have the experience to know how to maneuver large objects in tight spaces with damaging them. I have the worlds heaviest cal king mattress which is also very floppy. They took the time to bag it, out straps around it, and roll it up, then dolly it up 3 flights of stairs. I was thoroughly impressed. No damage to the mattress, the mattress bag, or their backs. Their attitude was great, it seemed they were happy to be here helping out. They listened to my concerns, and had all the weird little oddball tools you need to take different pieces of furniture apart. I will be moving in another 9 months and they’ll be my first call.

I hired a mover for one of my clients. When they failed to perform, I reached out and it was an emergency. The owner came out immediately, sized up the project, priced it very fairly, and came back in two hours and completed the job in a highly skilled way. Further, my clients loved their warmth and communication. It made me look like a rockstar for picking them. I can't imagine working with another mover ever again. Highly recommended.

Our moving experience with Marcella and Tony at MC Pro Services was exceptionally good right from the start! Marcella contacted us quickly, assessed our needs and gave us an estimate over the phone. Our timeline for moving was short (less than a week) and Marcella was able to reassure us that she could fit our schedule. She was courteous, gracious and quite professional. She kept us informed of her progress on move day through text messages and a cool website so we always knew what to expect. She and Tony were very careful and efficient about wrapping our belongings and packing them so that nothing was damaged. They worked well with the people at the destination and got all the furniture in the studio apartment for my 101-year-old father-in-law in no time! While we were waiting for a van to pick him up, Marcella was so thoughtful to strike up a conversation with my father-in-law about his long life. It really put him at ease about this change. We definitely recommend MC Pro Services for a careful, stress-free move!
