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. 

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. 

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 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.

Jiri and his assistant was very professional and timely. They came prepared to move my household items around and up and down stairs. Items that had to be taken apart to securely place them their new spot were reassemble correctly. Such a joy to work with. Thanks JP Moving Service! Rheanette and James

Michael was kind, thorough and efficient. They were wonderful in providing an assessment prior to completing and committing to my move. Tabitha came the day before my move and evaluated my house for an estimate of the cost. The next day I received the invoice and we scheduled my move, all of this was scheduled last minute, and Michael was accommodating and helpful when my schedule was very inflexible. He came in with a smile, brought his partner Roman and they helped pack up all my belongings professionally and quickly. They moved my entire house into a storage unit and they helped to make sure the job was done well. I’m so grateful to have found Savior Movers and I would recommend them to anyone. I have some valuable (valuable to me because they are heirlooms I inherited from my grandmother who has passed), and Michael helped me keep them safe by wrapping the table and chairs in blankets. He also securely wrapped the antique mirror I inherited from her as well. Thank you Savior Movers, I appreciate you immensely.

Matt and his helper arrived right on time, they were easy to schedule and always kept in communication. Among all my other items, they helped me move a very heavy smart bed that I was worried would be too complicated to move. But matt easily took on the challenge successfully. I would recommend to friends and family and will use his services again in the future.

The quote was about half of the actual bill. One bedroom took them all day to move. And I still had to go into the room and pack up another 10 boxes of stuff, so it's not like they had to pack a bunch of stuff. Just glad it's gone.

I hired Avila's to move a washer and dryer from Vacaville to Sacramento for some friends. I was not at either location, but I was told by both homeowners that the men were friendly and professional. I also know that they were prompt and on time. Melanie was very helpful in getting this job scheduled on short notice. The cost was more than I wanted to spend, but I don't regret hiring them, and would do so again.

Mike and his brother were very professional, knowledgeable, patient in answering questions, and courteous. I dealt with two companies in the past that moved my pool table. Mike and his brother took great care in dismantling and assembling my pool table. They took great care in handling all the parts of the pool table. They even played to ensure accuracy and evenness of the slates. They took the time to measure the perimeter around the pool table so it can meet the required space when playing and using the cues. They made sure that they didn't leave behind any dirt after assembling the pool table. They even offered lifetime warranty for their workmanship. I'll definitely use their services again and recommend them to my friends and patients. Thanks! Dr. Antonio

David, Dave, Main and Jacob were absolutely amazing and worth every cent. I was texted an hour before the guys were coming, they were right in the time frame I was told. They were fast, efficient, extremely fun, and entertaining. They took really good care of our stuff and wrapped all of our furniture. They took apart and reassembled our big furniture and even took down our ceiling fans (something we didn't even think to ask if they could do before hand.) Kaila, who answers and schedules the job was also terrific, I had a lot of questions and also needed flexibility with the move date until we knew for sure the closing date and she made me feel secure through the entire process. From first call to the last box, we made the best decision going with this company.
