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 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.

Mightiest Movers helped me so much! My original movers cancelled on me the day before my move. I contacted Mightiest Movers and they responded immediately and were able to move me the very next day! They were incredibly communicative which I appreciated! Answered all of my questions and I had no concerns or doubts! They were so great to work with and helped me move everything, including moving things up and down stairs!!! They are great. Highly recommend.

It went terrific! Our movers were fantastic. Extremely well! Helpful, friendly and professional. They were efficient, capable, pleasant and easy to work with. Owner checked in with us on a regular basis prior to our move to confirm details. We will definitely use them again when we move into our new home. Will hire Qshark Moving Company in Los Angeles in the future and recommend them to friends & family.

Completely unreliable. Flaked without any notice and left me scrambling to find a mover on the day of my move. He first said truck broke down and then said phone died.

Jennifer, Steve, and Justin did a great job with a small move. They arrived early, worked efficiently and non-stop, and completed the job in less time than originally quoted, saving me money. Will definitely hire this crew when I have to move again.

My movers Kuka and Victor arrived and moved me with promptness. I was worried I would be overcharged but they were very speedy. I only had one bedroom worth of stuff and it took a total of 3 hours to move. 2 to pack up and 1 to unload. That included dismantling and reassembling furniture. Nothing broken or scratched and they were very polite as well. I am pleased with Nomad’s services. I really was nervous at first but they did right by me! Thanks again

I had a very last minute item I needed moved. To my surprise, this company responded right away and was able to get the job done that same day. Kashawn worked with my budget and stayed in contact throughout the day regarding delivery time. I will definitely use them again, and am so grateful for them! Thank you KM movers!!

Honestly I could not believe how happy and positive Eric and his team were about moving my stuff. Who likes to move any thing from one location to another? No its just that simple! Any problems that came up Eric and his team were calm, cool, collective on figuring out a solution. That took apart and put back together every piece of furniture. Couldn't ask for a better company to hire and I look forward to hearing great feed back from all my friends and family that I will recommend them too. Thank you Spend Less for movers!

Several Problems 1.st several items like my computer desk they asked if I wanted it to be moved to the new apt. and "yes I do" so the mover proceeds to take the desk apart no problem until later that day at the new apt I go to put the shelves back in the desk and the shelves were missing so I call and ask Yoheli "where are my shelves to my computer desk" Yoheli "hold on, let me call you back" 5 minutes later Yoheli calls back and tells me "the driver said you told him you would move them yourself" I say "WHAT!" Yoheli repeats herself and I'm like I did not tell him that why would I tell him to take the desk to the new place but leave the shelves for me it's not like I'm paying My American movers what I call way too much money for half ass service. there were several other things that got left behind like a chair that they were told several times to load on there truck but somehow that chair is still sitting at the old place and it looks like I will have to pay another person or company to move it. I'm a little pissed off I mean they even moved the chair from the bedroom to the living room like they were going to put it on the truck but nope nothing beats spending almost $600 for crappy service.

Wonderful experience. Have been looking for 2 weeks for someone to move just 1 item between 2 towns-Tony responded from Thumbtack, came the same day. Price was very reasonable. Took that item right where it was supposed to go. Couldn't have been easier once I found him. So glad I did! And would call him again for any other move....
