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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Moved an antique china cabinet. Called out dings and warps in the wood when he picked it up so I wan't blindsided by the seller. Took extra care by wrapping it in moving blankets.

James and Rick are truly the best in the business. If you are looking to move long distance or local, Sac Elite Moving is the one to hire. Did a move 650miles for a 2 BR 2BA apt with Pianos, TVs, Antiques, plus a 10x10 storage and I am happy to say that James and Rick did a tremendous job loading, keeping things nice and tight in the truck, and unloading as well. Would recommend them if you are looking for movers who are respectful, honest, fair, basically who will get the job done! Two thumbs up! - Harold

They were very responsive and professional. However they were extremely busy with end of month moves and I needed a single item moved quickly. So, needed to obtain the service from an alternate company that had a slot open within 2 days.

Moving is always stressful, no matter how well prepared you may be. Brandon, Gary and Junior are all consummate professionals and they have the ability to take the stress level down into something so manageable. It's amazing, really. I can't think of a single move where I wasn't, at some point, hitting Def Con One on the stress scale. Not this time. Gary and Junior did a really fantastic job. They were fast, personable and really took care of your possessions. They helped troubleshoot a teenagers room that should have been packed up but wasn't :-( and kept a strong focus no matter the curve ball. Really fantastic experience. I picked Safe Moving because my friend had a great experience and I'm really glad I did. I can't think of a thing I would change, nor would I hesitate for a second to recommend Safe Moving to family and friends. These guys work hard and it shows.

I ended up hiring 24 hours inc services when another mover via Thumbtack reported sick on the day of moving. I frantically replying to all movers who replied earlier to my project but were not selected as my first choice. It's hard to arrange movers on the same day but 24 hours inc were managed to arrange a 17 ft truck with 2 guys. My original booking was worth 3 person team with bigger truck and though this new setup was not enough for move of my 3 bed room house but not having anyone would be much worse. I called them around them 10 am and Francisco and Fabio were at my door by 2 pm as promised. They came from Sacramento which is about 90 miles. They surveyed the house and told one trip might not be enough but they will try their best. They didn't started the clock until they were fully ready to start moving (parking the truck, setting up ramp, unloading dolly, blankets, tools etc) unlike other who start counting when they arrive. Francisco and Fabio both worked hard, they were professional and courteous and were not sluggish. I had a lot of stuff including an elliptical and massage chair which were quite heavy but they were able to handle it. Particularly Francisco proved to be much stronger than he looked. They ended up having two trips but luckily I was moving 2 mikes away , so it was not that bad. They were done in 6.5 hours of almost non stop work. I helped carry the little stuff to save some time but I am not going to complain as if it was their fault or they were sluggish. They also wanted to finish early as they had to go back 90 miles. In summary even though it took a little longer due to two trips but they did get the job done very well and saved the day. Thank you Francisco , Fabio and 24 Hours Inc!

Solid moving company, they confirmed the night before and then they showed up exactly in time. Even though it was raining they were troopers. The guys spoke almost no english but it wasn't needed they moved everything with no real interaction needed besides pointing out one thing that was very fragile which they took good care of. They accomplished the move quickly and worked efficiently with no breaks that I saw. I gave 4 stars because a few things could have been better: Some of the furniture wasn't plastic wrapped all the way and got wet in the rain (no damage). The floor of the truck was wet and some of the boxes soaked up some rain (no damage) And I saw them standing on some boxes to pack things in the truck (but again no damage). So they are solidly in the "Good" category. The quote Wendy gave me was 100% spot on, no hidden charges for their plastic wrap or tape and the cost ended up being less then my back of the napkin calculations - which has never happened to me before. I would definitely use them again for my next move (hopefully not for a while).

Tarek and Josh are absolute professionals. They are incredibly efficient and really mindful of not scratching/dinging walls/floors/doorways/etc.. I also requested a bed disassembly + reassembly and they did a solid job. So pleased with their services overall. I highly recommend them and they’ll definitely be my go-to for my next move.
