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. 

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.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

I booked them to move me and then 2 days before, one of his staff sent me an email saying they don't cover the area I am moving to! So now I have to book another mover less than two days before my scheduled move!

These guys were awesome! The move was a difficult one, as we were moving my mother in law who is a hoarder. She was not prepared at all and the movers were extremely patient with her and methodically packed up the truck without hesitation or judgement. I would recommend them to anyone!!

Aleks moved our spinet piano by himself. It was in and on his truck in less than 1/2 hour and safely moved to my son's house in Whittier. Aleks was very personable, most reasonable and finished the job professionally.

The team from MGB was very friendly, and they seemed to be working hard. Similarly, they took a lot of care with wrapping and packing the furniture, and nothing was damaged, so I don't have any complaints in that regard. However, I didn't rate them higher for several reasons: 1. They were about an hour and a half late which caused us to have to complete the move on the following day. To give them credit, they called when they realized they'd be late. That's better than some movers would do. 2. The estimate for how long the job would take was off pretty substantially, and I think they should have sent one more mover to help. Not having the experience to estimate these numbers myself, I was counting on the company to be able to do so within a reasonable margin of error. I realize that there are a lot of factors that affect the length of a move, but I did explain that it was both a 3-bedroom house plus a fairly packed storage unit that needed to be moved. They sent a team of three movers with a smaller truck and had estimated 6-8 hours. It took 11.5 hours and more than one trip in the truck. 3. The movers were ill-equipped to deal with a move in the rain. It doesn't rain that often in our area, but it poured the day we moved, and some of the items that were in the truck got very wet from a leaking roof. Also, I had to explain to the movers that they should cover the furniture pieces with blankets *before* they took them out of the truck to prevent them getting wet on the way into the new house. Until I stepped in, they were simply carrying everything through the rain. I have a lot of wood and antique furniture, so this was particularly problematic. In short, if you know exactly what you need in terms of personnel and time, and you don't move in the rain, MGB is a good option for your move. However, if you need a company that can help you accurately determine what will be needed to complete your move efficiently, you might want to look elsewhere.

Iren was good with communication before the move to make sure everything was set up. Then, he not only showed up on time, but 15 minutes early. He was very careful moving everything and got everything done very quickly and efficiently. Awesome experience. Thank you!

I found the movers very cordial, accommodating and very professional. They took very good care of my items. Donny and Toby even went beyond the call of duty to fix a spring to my sofa bed. I know I would've struggled doing it myself. If I need movers in the future, I will definitely call David for help again.

Mr Borjas conducted an outstanding move of my two story home, from one city to another. Heavy pieces of furniture had to be taken downstairs, and then back upstairs. These were done with all the professionalism, experience and precision expected of someone with his vast experience, but at a far higher cost (like those that had quoted me). Yet, his cost was VERY fair - which is what I needed considering I had just bought a house. He and his crew were exceedingly pleasant to work with, making extra care to even talk to my curious 5-year old, and include him in little tasks in the move to make him feel great. Mr Borjas also moved our Steinway upright, without a problem. I would strongly recommend him for anyone who is trying to move across town.

These guys had a bad day and thus arrived 2.5 hours late, leaving a very small window of time for moving out of my apartment before it needed to be vacated. But they worked very hard -- Wesley in particular. Their bad luck extended to the next day (one of two movers called in sick) and poor Wesley had to unload the truck into my storage unit all on his own -- all the furniture and stuff from a two-bedroom apartment! Problems aside, he was apologetic, honest, communicative, and worked super-hard to honor our contract.
