Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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 I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

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!

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.

Our move went very well. All of our furniture arrived at our new home with out so much as a scratch. The bedroom furniture had to go upstairs. It was large heavy oak furniture. There were no issues at all with getting it to an upstairs bedroom.It was an extreamly hot day and the movers worked tirelessly. Would use them again if we ever moved. Very satisfied customer.

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 thought I "hired" not "declined"! If that is not so, please let me know so I can correct it. 5 Star Moving has been the most specific and helpful of all the options. I hope they call or email me to answer questions I put to them in my last message. Thanks, Shelley

Wish I could give more than 5 stars! This relocating crew was AMAZING. My family and I were moving 70 miles away, after looking over a few companies this was an obvious choice. We hired 3 guys ALL were sincerely NICE and ACCOMMODATING. The owner Mario was hands down a pure professional, his crew Oscar, and Antonio were so hard working and awesome! Did I also mention how affordable this company is? We were moving so every penny was limited. BEST prices than anyone on the Internet. HIRE THIS COMPANY don't waste time looking for anyone else. Believe me, I don't post reviews but I felt I HAD too in this case.

They disassembled my pool table and moved it. They broke a few of the pool table pockets. They claimed that the pockets were old and that they did not truly break them. They said they would contact me after delivery to send me new pockets. I have yet to hear from them. So, in short, they were destructive and then lied. I will never use them again.

I had a positive experience in every sense. On time, friendly, humble, courteous, careful. Eric and Cedro (sp?) were such a pleasure to work with. We put our trust in them and they helped us out in a big way. We had some heavy items that were just a bit too much to move on our. I would definitely hire MGB again in the future and would recommend them to a family member and friend. Phew! Now we can focus on other areas.
