Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

Reviews for Thousand Oaks movers

Amazing moving company!! I couldn't believe how smooth the moving day went with two pick-up stops along the way. They had the best attitudes combined with incredible skill and experience. They went above and beyond to help, in addition to the move they connected my washer/dryer/fridge, and assembled a vanity amazingly well and fast. I'm so grateful, thanks again TC Movers!

We had a grand piano moved quite a distance and had to go up several flights of stairs (8-10 steps) into a bedroom. The men were very professional and explained the moving process as they went.

Ron was great. He moved a bookcase for me. He brought a helper but it turned out to be heavier than first thought. They were so gracious and had to move it up stairs. It was hard work and they did not complain at all even though it was heavy. I would definitely use Ron again!!

Conrad and his employees are the best!! They packed and moved me, wrapped all the furniture and there was not one thing broken or missing when I unpacked. I can’t say enough about how great they are. I have to also say a very reasonable price. If you need a mover I recommend Conrad, he is also very personable and does little extras. I am so happy with his work that I have already recommended him to several people. Thank you Conrad, Roxanne B

BK movers went above and beyond. Jaden, Chris and Craig had a huge job to do, well...actually it was two jobs in one, and they did it with the utmost care and a positive attitude. They were on time, made sure to check with me if they had any concerns or questions and performed each and every task (moving of furniture, boxes, etc.) with concern for the contents, my home and other belongings. They were patient with me and the final bill was as we had discussed. No $$$ surprises. I won't hesitate to call them again should I need their services.

They Initially gave me a quote but latter price matched with competitors quote. This was a long distance move from Thousand Oaks to Phoenix.They Promised to show up early between 6-7 AM for loading and they turned up at 6:15(they actually woke me up). They loaded everything in 2 about 2 hrs including blanket wrapping sofa's ,mattress and dismantling furniture. They latter started to Phoenix and kept updating me their whereabouts every few hours. They reached Phoenix on the same day and before us. they waited at our destination until we showed up and unloaded everything and assembled the furniture in two hours. Only had a issue with a TV stand which was damaged slightly.Mike and Zack were the ones who handled our move and they were very cool. I would highly recommend them for moving. They are professional and I would hire them again .

I just finished working with Russell from State Move. It was a great experience. My Mother passed away two weeks ago and we had to pack up and move her belongings before the end of the month. Last night it became clear that we needed to hire additional help, friends and family weren't going to be enough. So at 6:00 p.m. I put out a request on Thumbtack and within 35 minutes the only company that responded was State Move. They took my information, gave me a quote and I booked them. They were able to have a man and a truck at my door by 2:00 p.m. today. And that man was Russell. He got right to work. He wrapped my special items in shrink wrap and even suggested a better way to transport a few things. Everything was loaded up. Then we drove to my home 20 minutes up the freeway. He unloaded everything and finished the job by himself within the three hours I was quoted. He was professional, courteous, and careful with my Mother's antiques. I still can't believe I was able to hire them just 8 hrs before the start of the job. They literally came to my rescue. I highly recommend State Move.

TC Movers did a great job. We had multiple locations to load/unload at, starting in Thousand Oaks. They showed up on time and were very professional, finishing the job in the amount of time that they estimated, despite having over an hour of traffic. Would definitely recommend.

John and his team are top notch. They take the pain out of moving. Very kind. Very respectable. It was truly an amazing experience. He and his crew are the kind of people you want to invite to stay for dinner when the day is done. Will definitely refer to all of my friends.

Overall a solid experience. Scheduling was a breeze. The crew was punctual and professional. A few furniture pieces suffered some scratching from not properly wrapping the legs and some upholstered pieces got dirty due to only being wrapped in plastic, not a moving blanket. All in all I would use them again.

Conrad’s team arrived early and quickly emptied our Pods. We had a scheduling conflict that was our fault and we had to change and they were still available to accommodate or move. They were nice people and did a pretty good job. Team was decent in being careful with our stuff and new walls but not perfect.
