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.

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.

Thank you for a great move! Moe & Manny were on time, friendly, and careful. I hope I won't need to move again in the near future, but would use Safe Moving again.

Great Service!! The movers were courteous and expedient. Arrived on time and didn't stop until it was finished. Alysha Garibaldi answered promptly to all my texts filled with questions. She even sent a gentleman for a free in home consultation. Not having to move all that furniture and dozens of boxes myself was well worth their low cost. Plus the truck is included! Great service. Great people. I will hire and recommend them to anyone needing moving services.

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.

I have moved many times in the past and always its been me and u-haul. I have never used movers before and now I am wondering why I waited so long. The team from Garibaldi were awesome. They were on-time, efficient, and hard working. We were not the best when it came to labeling and organizing our boxes, but they were able to decipher items and create organized stacks to help us find items. I would highly recommend these guys. No hidden fees, what I was quoted was what I paid. It took the stress off of moving.

Friendly movers but very unprofessional. Arrived 1.5 hours late, scuffed & damaged our freshly painted walls, didn’t wrap all the furniture so many pieces are filthy from the truck, and would not move our TVs (so we had to return to house to pick them up). Did not cover carpets or pad walls to prevent damage. Not a pleasant experience, wouldn’t use again.

These guys were awesome! I needed to move from my storage unit to my apartment on the second floor. I messaged them and they had it done the next day. I definitely recommend them!

On time, motivated, trained and equipped. They and I under-estimated how much I had to move, but they adapted quickly, brought in extra manpower, and worked 11 hours to get the job done. However, they did leave behind some of the heavier and bulkier items as they tried to maximize space utilization on the truck.

The two gentleman who came to assist did a great job with helping me move in such a short time. They took care of my products that needed extra careful care. They also helped with adjusting the room to my liking which they didnt need to do. 10/10 would hire again. Thanks!

Ryan and his team showed up on time and helped finish the packing. They loaded two huge trucks, while keeping our stuff safe from the rain and drove the 4 hour to our new home. Everything was unloaded and unwrapped with not a single sign of damage. They were the hardest working group I have seen in a long time. If you need to move your home, these are the guys for the job.

They were fantastic in every way! I was contacted within 15 minutes of posting job. I needed help ASAP and they showed up the following morning at 9:00AM. We have (8) giant breed dogs (great pyrenees) who love to get in the way and they were patient and careful about opening/closing gates/door of which there are many. They were the lowest$ of three quotes, got the job done quickly and moved everything with great care. Can't say enough good...really!! Thanks Guys!

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
