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.

Alex and his crew were great. Hired them to move some items into storage and to move some furniture and appliances to my new place. They are fast and very systematic when moving (stacking things in storage, where to put items, etc.). They carefully place your things and think about the best way to move your items, unlike other movers who will just throw things everywhere. I will definitely hire them on my next move. Thanks guys!

Moving sucks, but it doesnt need to if you hire these guys! They were on time, very friendly, and worked quickly. We had A LOT to move, and they were able to get it done in the agreed upon timeframe. I hope to never move again, but if I do, I’m 100% calling AB Moving.

Just finished with the movers. Great experience! I haven't moved in 21 yrs. Forgot what a hassle it is. Thanks to Tony for responding so quickly. The guys he sent me were great. Doug and Chris did a fantastic job moving my mom's antique furniture . They were very patient, especially when we ran into a "snag" & the street i was moving to was closed off. Great service and well priced. Would highly recommend Tony and his crew. Thanks guys! Will definitely use them again. <3 D

I found Tony's delivery and labor right here on thumbtack, he reached out to me after hearing about my 1bedroom apartment move. After going through tons of quotes with other companies, he gave me a great price. The movers were on time, very friendly and very knowledgeable. Tony even called during the move to make sure we were satisfied with just how everything was going. I'm extremely grateful to have found these guys. They saved us so many headaches that come with moving.

My movers were Jahon, Maqsad and Jhenya. We had a minor hiccup on price at the very start but it was quickly corrected with a call back to the office. The guys moved methodically through two full storage units, taking extra care to pack things safely. We then made our way a few miles over to my home where they worked with me and my wife to place all items at whatever location we needed. They were also good enough to move a few items we had already put into the house into their proper location. I really appreciate that they were hard-working and professional with everything that they did. Jahon also checked with me at the very end to ensure that I was satisfied with everything that was done.

I had a great experience with LA Moving Solutions. They answered all my questions before booking their services. I initially booked for 10am but the day before they reached out to ask if they could move it to 11:30a/12p and I said yes. Day of move they arrived around 1:30pm. Even though there was an issue with the arrival time, I am still rating them 5 stars because they were very polite and extremely fast! I was told it could take 2 hours but they were done in less than that and that included the almost 30 min drive to my new place. Price + quality of service = couldn’t ask for anything better! I would use their services again and definitely recommend them!
