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.

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.

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. 

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.

Reviews for Torrance movers

This was a move for my elderly father within an assisted living facility. The move was from one apt to another within the same building and was a small move at first glance. In reality, my 87 yo father needed lots of help with packing and relocation of small personal items, such as toiletries, housewares, clothing, desktop items, etc. The movers arrived on time, worked hard and efficiently and were great at adapting to meet the needs of this situation. I happily recommend Nomad movers and would rehire them for additional moves without hesitation.

I've moved several times and this has been my best experience with a moving company. Juan and Luw were amazing. They were professional, efficient and extremely friendly. I would definitely recommend Spend Less For Movers! Thank you gentlemen!

Chris and his team did an outstanding job with our move. They were punctual, efficient, and extremely hardworking. They took excellent care of all our belongings- nothing broke, scratched or dented during the move. Tony was very accessible via phone/text prior to the move date and everything was set up efficiently. He called the day prior to the move to confirm and also during the move to see that everything was going smoothly. Overall the cost was very reasonable and very competitive compared to other moving companies. No real hidden charges, everything was explained up front. Hope we won't ever have to move again, but if we do, we will definitely hire Tony's group again. Thank you!

Amazing service, friendly and professional. Moved all my belongings without a problem, even helped me situate my piano in a certain way to not damage the floors. I’ve moved 12 times in 10 years, and Shift It Movers have been one of my top experiences. If you need quality service for an amazing value, don’t hesitate to get ahold of Shift It Movers!

We hired Top Movers to move our furniture. They are very efficient, reliable and nice guys. They got the job done fairly quickly and none of our stuff is damaged. Highly recommended!

They were available with less than a 1-day notice. Reuben and Mark carefully wrapped the heavy chest and loaded it. They were courteous and either called or texted at each stage of the move. On arrival at the destination, they smoothly moved the piece up several stairs, into place, and unwrapped it. The 20-mile move of a very heavy piece took a little over an hour. I would highly recommend SoCal Movers Services. They communicate very well and met every expectation with skill and professionalism.

These guys are very receptive to my endless requests and very professional throughout. I needed a commercial refrigerator moved from a warehouse to my restaurant and these guys took the job without batting an eye. Other moving companies hemmed and hawed about never doing this before and the refrigerator is too heavy. Guess what, these movers went into this looking for solutions to the problem rather than excuses. I would look to them in the future. A+ all the way!

I was moving for the first time and decided to hire movers. I was looking around and was getting quotes from other moving companies and they all were asking general questions (ie, stairs? how many bedrooms? will we move heavy items like a piano? is the destination one or two floors? will we have to assemble/disassemble furniture? etc). When I received a quote from David, the price was very reasonable and he didn’t ask any questions AT ALL. Once the movers arrived they had to call David because there was two flights of stairs. I spoke with David and sure enough he raised the price. I was not expecting that and was very dissatisfied. It’s not my fault that he didn’t ask the proper questions ahead of time. If that was the case I would of hired other movers at a lower rate KNOWING there was two flights of stairs. I had to move so I had to use David and his crew. Jimmy, his worker, is very, very awesome and was very professional about everything. He apologized many times on behalf of David. He worked non stop and never took any breaks. He made sure all my furniture was moved without being damaged and was very alert of things that were damaged. I would recommend this company, ONLY because of Jimmy. If you decide to book them, PLEASE make sure to give all and any info to David if not you will get surprise fees when the workers arrive.

We didn't really use this company to move. I just accidentally sent them an email, they replied very quickly and politely, AFTER I told them I already booked a different mover. I like their professionalism and responsiveness. Maybe I will indeed try them next time.

Overall, they did a good job of moving. I have to say that the initial estimation was not good and they had to get a third guy to complete the job. Of course, the hourly rate went up, which was not a problem as I knew the size of the job. Movers worked really hard to get the job done and items came safe to my new home.

We decided last minute that we needed to hire movers and Gold Rush worked well with my budget. They were able to move all my big items from our third floor apartment to our new house within the 3 hr minimum. My only complaint is that several of our wood furniture items were scratched.

Earlier this month, MGB Relocations helped with a 350 mile move that required an overnight stay. Mario and his team were very professional and very helpful. He worked with us on and our budget to accommodate our needs. His team brought all the materials needed to disassemble and reassemble furniture as needed, plus covers to protect the mattresses. We had not finished packing when his team arrived (our fault as they were on time) and they were able to plastic wrap some bookshelves with items still in it to make the move even easier. Mario said that his job is to make our move easy and he was true to his word. We appreciate MGB Relocations for helping to make a stressful event go smoothly. I recommend them for any move, whether long distance or local.

Clayton and Arturo did a FANTASTIC job moving our very heavy recliner couch out of the small entrance of our house (which had steps and railing). They also moved our filing cabinet filled with papers, a heavy dresser, box spring and mattress on a second trip, all within the 2 hour time frame. We were in great communication prior to and the day of and would highly recommend them.

Amazing experience with Aleks! He was quick, and very respectful of my surroundings. I was afraid/unsure how movers would treat my floors, treadmill, and sofa as they were moving my couch but they did an amazing job. I think they were in and out within 30 minutes! Couldn't have asked for a better service. I am glad I found this site as well for other home improvement projects!

I was a little frustrated at beginning of the move day as Wesley called and said he would be late as he forgot to order supplies. He was 1 1/2 hours late. But it all worked out great after he arrived with his help. Very courteous and professional. He and his help worked hard and protected all of my furnishings in quality manner. I would recommend them to anyone who needed a mover. Thanks Wesley.

My moving day was thrown a curveball when I unexpectedly had to have surgery THE DAY BEFORE. What was supposed to be an incredibly stressful day turned out to be one of the smoothest moves I've ever had! These guys are incredibly professional and hustled their a** off the entire time, never complaining once (when I KNOW their complaints would've been valid due to our old apartments crazy stair situation). If I could, I'd give seven out of 5 stars.
