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.

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’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. 

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 you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

I highly recommend MAS Movers. They helped us move and I found them to be efficient, professional and careful with our items. MAS Movers were there on time to start the move. We had a large four bedroom house with a backyard, and everything had to be moved. They wrapped the furniture, carefully loaded the truck, and we found out that everything would not fit in the 24” truck. Since we were moving only 20 miles, we had the option to come back for a second round. They were really efficient in unloading the truck so that we could go back again to repeat the process. I also like their model of charging by the hour, without any hidden fees. When I was initially calling other movers, I found their was a trend in charging for driving to and from the location, and other types of charges. MAS movers had the best model for Costa, this is why I went with them. I am glad, I did. They made the move as easy as possible!

We had a great moving experience with Eric. Responded quickly to our inquiry and extremely professional. His big truck is able to accommodate a lot and his truck’s lift makes it easy to load extra heavy items. He did an awesome job moving our fragile, crated, marble table, so glad we found Eric!!

Chad & Gabe just finished moving my queen sleeper sofa, 55 in TV, & TV stand from the living room to the upstairs loft. The sofa was pretty heavy, but they made it look easier & did it safer than the Living Spaces team did when they delivered it to my second story apartment 5 years ago. They arrived on time, were very professional, had beautiful personalities, & sense of humors. Such gentleman, they were trying to help me move small things that weren't even apart of our agreement. I will definitely be hiring them in the future & referring them to friends. Not to mention I just reached out to them via this app yesterday & in less than 30 min I was all confirmed. Excell

Mad movers were immediately responsive to my request and called to fully understand my project needs before scheduling. I also had a tight timeline and they adjusted to accommodate. On-site they were professional, supportive and I felt completely comfortable welcoming them into my home. I'd give them 10 stars if it was possible and will definitely use them again.

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.
