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.

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.

Larro's moving service was the best moving experience I have had in the Bay Area. The movers showed up on time and wrapped all of our furniture properly. The were also very quick with moving everything out of our apartment and into our new home. If you're looking for reliable and efficient movers, these are the guys to hire!

They called ahead to let us know they would be late but brought an extra mover at no extra charge to complete the move on time. We had a strict deadline to complete the move out by. Once they arrived they were very efficient and careful with our furniture. Our fragile items they treated with great care. We completed the move on time.

Wow! Amazing movers! Super accommodating to last minute changes, very professional and responsive. I’ve moved 13 times in my adult life and these are, by far, the best movers I’ve ever had! They were so fast and efficient and treated my items as if they were their own. Thank you to the Tony’s Movers team for making a usually stressful day, stress-free. Highly recommended. 🙌

The crew was efficient and careful - they covered all of our furniture and moved everything without a scratch. They also helped us move all the heavy pieces up the stairs at our destination without a problem.

Communication with Joe to arrange/schedule my move over the phone was clear, prompt, and responsive— including any questions I had prior to the moving day. His experienced crew also work w/ clear communication, professionalism, & efficiency. Having Aaron and Tyler as the movers was great— they moved our belongings from point A to B within a timely manner and all our things were well-taken care of throughout the truck load-in, the drive, and the load-out. Would definitely recommend Truket. [move details: a family from small 2-bdrm apt to a 2-bdrm (and 2 story) condo, across the Bay Bridge]

Highly recommend! Efficient, professional, and good vibe! Response time is usually within an hour, answers questions in details and are very thorough. They will ask you for as many details as possible when you first contacted them to provide a quote. The quote is the highest estimate, for me the actual moving cost is half of the estimated quote, which is pretty good. Will ask for pictures of furniture, surrounding area and access of old place you are moving from and the new location you are moving to. They will wrap up everything and dissemble/resemble your furnitures based on request (cost extra but totally worth it, all my furnitures are white and the bed frame is queen size, so these two features really help!) Would definitely go to them if I ever need to move again within California!

My fiancé and I had to move unexpectedly. I came to Thumbtack in search of moving companies who could move a 4-bedroom house 55 miles away with less than two weeks notice. Larro’s was at the top of the list, highly recommended. Out of all the companies that I checked in to, Larro’s was the only one to respond same-day. I spoke with a wonderful person named Carlos who helped me through the whole process. Carlos was impressively quick to respond and he was kind and patient with my bazillion questions. I was a nervous wreck, Carlos went above and beyond by being so kind and responsive. Based on the sheer volume of belongings that my fiancé and I have (a 4-bedroom house with all the big appliances and a huge bed and an absurd amount of tools), Carlos looked at my photos and inventory list and suggested a four-man crew. I was quoted for a four-man crew for 8-10 hours. My movers are named Jose, Kevin, Juan and Francisco. They completed the job in 6 hours and naturally charged me accordingly. These guys knew full well that I was fully prepared to pay for a much longer day including two hours of agreed upon time and a half. They could have moved a little more slowly, but they didn’t. They showed up exactly on-time. They were fully prepared, very attentive and very pleasant. They were neat, clean and truly wonderful to work with. My belongings are flawless, perfectly in tact. And they didn’t stop working until the move was complete. I cannot say enough about how truly exceptional Larro’s is. If you or anyone you know needs to move, whether it’s just down the street or across the country, please call Larro’s. Support these very capable., professional, honest movers. You’ll be incredibly glad that you did. I know that I am.

Although Scott was adamant about charging me the $140 for 3 staff on a Saturday (even though I kept telling him I don't have that much furniture to move), he was flexible enough that I could book his services only a week or so before my desired move date. He was extremely easy to reach, on thumbtack and also through the phone. As I had predicted they only took about 30 minutes to move everything from each location (3 total) and the majority of the billed time was probably actually just drive time. Other than the fact that I dont think they wrapped my mattress up (had dirt on it when I took a look after they left), they were very fast, friendly, and efficient. They could have been slightly more careful with my items, but overall they did a great job. One shelf which was already slightly falling apart broke immediately when they tried to move it.

We asked for help uncrating and moving a 300+ lb marble-top table to our upstairs dining area. Scott and 1 crew member handled it quickly and efficiently after coming out to estimate the work required, which helped us feel comfortable with the job. Everything is in the right place with no damage! They were extra helpful with a bizarre shipping crate and difficult stairs, and gave us great advice if we need to move it again in the future.
