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. 

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

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.

Mario’s Pro Labor was amazing! First of all, extremely friendly and came with a “can do” attitude. They made quick work of helping us move our furniture without extravagant equipment, and without any damage at all. Very approachable and kind. Our dogs even loved them.

Vic saved the day! I needed a piece of furniture picked up and delivered on a tight timeline, and Vic responded very quickly and worked with me on my budget and timeline. He is very professional and kind, and was very careful moving the piece into my house. I will definitely be using him and his team again!

Called this company due to the great reviews. I hired them to walk the furniture and boxes from inside of my house to literally the Upack Trailer next to my house (about 300 feet at the most). The guys showed up with an extra worker, left with lots of furniture and boxes remaining - they said the trailer was full (I rented 20 feet of rhe Upack, they filled 17 feet of it - I have the receipt to prove it). I had to rent a 5 X 8 trailer to haul the stuff up. Our Upack just arrived from California and shocked, upset and completely disappointed dont even begin to describe the way Im feeling. I have broken furniture due to the way they "packed" my load. I have taken pictures from the moment the bulk head boards where taken down and thru out the unloading process . The movers I hired required me to take pictures prior to them even touching my things because they didnt want to be held responsible. They asked if my teenage sons loaded this trailer due to how poorly it was packed. Thats how bad it was. Im now left with multiple pieces of broken furniture and Im still unpacking so who knows what else is damaged. I will keep taking pictures with each box I open, just in case. To make matters worse, the company will not call me back to figure out what they are going to do to correct this situation. I'm sorry but this is not how a professional moving company acts. When the guys told me to go get boxes for the TV's because the owner was getting tired of paying broken TV claims I should have told these guys to go. That was my fault. And I'm paying dearly for it. I can not in good Conscience recommend this company.
