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 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.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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 Tracy movers

Movers arrived on time. The lead (Dari) is very professional, focused, and moves quickly. Unfortunately, the team accompanying Dari does not move at the same speed or efficiency which then lengthens the time and therefore the cost of the move.

Arrived early, patient when they discovered I had more to move than originally intended, went out of their way to ensure the move was smooth and stress free. I will be recommending them to my friends who need a rock solid moving team!

Safe Moving was great! They moved me from a three story townhouse to a second floor apartment. They were hardworking and very careful with my things. They were also very reasonably priced and didn't even charge extra for all the stairs :-) I would definitely recommend them!

I used this moving company twice (To/ From house to an Apt/Public Storage then from Apt/Public Storage to a house) within the year(2017) and I requested 1 of the 2 guys back because their service was excellent the first time around. I highly recommend this company for anyone wanting to move. You won't be disappointed!!!

JR and his crew they all were amazing and we had a great time working together and they were so helpful and so cooperative that all my move and heavy lifting got done on time and everything more so was professionally done. More than anything that JR and his crew we became very good friends. I would highly recommend him for any of your future moves.

They were on time, very polite, and worked very hard. We had a large move, and they were a lot quicker than we had anticipated. Wrapped, padded and handled all fragile items with extra care.

Did not get all my stuff on the truck, because the help did not load it right. One guy was in the bathroom for about a half hour after they started working!!! Had to rent another truck to finish the move!! It was the move from Hell!!!! Some of our stuff got broken and tables got scratched because they were not wrapped properly in blankets! Would not recommend them!!!!! I thought the guy that I talked to, to set up everything would be there to supervise, he was not. Also one guy would walk off and was constantly on his phone and yelling at the person he was talking to. Very bad experience!!

These guys were super helpful and quick! They were also very nice! They moved my 1 bedroom apartment 13 miles in 3 hours! This included breaking down my daybed and queen bed and reassembly. It was only 2 of them this time but they did a great job. I asked to help them unload but they insisted on just doing it themselves and I appreciate that because I was able to use the time to start putting things away!

I needed a bedroom set moved that I purchased online. I only had a small window of available days and times. Leclaiir was quick to respond with their interest flat rate for my job. They were very communicative as we coordinated the time. Everything arrived in great shape and despite the heat both guys unloaded my items quickly with care and with a positive attitude. They also did not attempt to changes the price (as I’ve heard some other companies do). I would have given all 5 stars but there was some last minute confusion that we quickly worked through but appeared to be poor or miscommunication amongst their company. Overall, very good experience and I will consider them for future needs.
