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.

Reviews for Yorba Linda movers

Arthur and the crew showed up on time, worked incredibly hard, and did quality work. All 5 crew members moved fast and efficiently. I would recommend The First Moving Company to anyone who has moving needs - I think you will be thrilled. We have moved 21 times and this was as good or better than anything we have experienced.

I contacted and set up our move with Wesley, unfortunately our escrow was delayed by a week. However, when I called to inform him of the delay and the new timeline he was very accommodating and we rescheduled. Two days before our move, my husband asked if Wesley could bring 2 trucks just in case.....Luckily he did. Our move was smooth, and Wesley and his crew were extremely helpful and courteous. Moving is not fun, but I would definitely use Shift It Moving again!

Hired 3 man crew for local move and had to shift the moving date on multiple occasions because our new house wasn't ready yet. Clever Moving was very responsive to messaging and really appreciate their flexibility in moving the date so quickly and easily. On moving day, the crew was delayed an hour, but at Clever did text me to let me know so it was fine. The crew was very professional, nice, and considerate. They wrapped the delicate items to protect them and pointed out any prior damage to prevent any misunderstandings. They also expertly disassembled/reassembled some of the bulkier items like our dining room table to make transport safer and easier. Would definitely use again and recommend.

Tony sent 6 guys with two trucks. Chris was the lead on the job. They all worked hard all day to get our belongings moved to our new home. I've never seen a crew work so hard. Thank you to Tony, Chris and the entire crew for a smooth and successful move.

Very efficient and friendly. Knew their way around all kinds of household items and packed or wrapped accordingly if needed. They have this very positive energy and a great can-do attitude so that just being around them gives you confidence that your job will get done and makes your move less stressful no matter what. Previously I had movers that arrived and first thing talked about what they would and wouldn’t move, then proceeded to whine about every little thing and made an emotionally difficult move even more awful. Not the case at all with these guys - they take instruction well, didn’t complaint, not a single “if...” or “but...”- they took it all in stride, were easy-going through the entire process, and got the job done.

Larry and his son did a fantastic job with our move. I was nervous because it was a last minute and somewhat complicated situation and have had bad experiences with movers in the past, but Larry went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. We are so grateful and would recommend him to anyone in the area!

I can’t say enough great things about The Little Movers! I hired them to move an enormous dresser from the garage to an upstairs bedroom. They did so with great ease and were very cautious to not damage the walls or the dresser. Throughout the entire time, they were very professional and courteous. I’ll definitely be using them again for future projects!

The gentlemen were friendly, one of the movers was late so the job did not begin on time, that was not a problem as they did not start their official time until he arrived. There were no appliances to move. All the boxes were packed and ready in the garage. We had two bedrooms of furniture, a living room, a Kitchen table and some patio furniture. They did provide wardrobe boxes which we filled. Everything was organized and ready to go thanks to my best friend Connie. Although they did a great job, the job cost double what we expected and went longer then we expected.

Horrible! I called for an in home estimate. The estimator never showed up. I wouldn't recommend this company at all! Especially if you need to get an estimate. If they can't get you an estimator to come out. How good can they be at moving you? Horrible!

They were professional, respectful, accommodating and courteous. They were very aware of the time and my budget and managed it well. There were no hidden charges or extra fees. I had heavy items that had to be moved to an upstairs apartment, navigating narrow entryways and it went off without a hitch or ding :) I would definitely recommend this company and would use them again.

I had a limited amount of space to store furniture and they were very creative, methodical and careful with how they moved and arranged everything to make the most use of the space and protect the furniture. They communicated well throughout the process and even helped me shut off the water when I accidentally disconnected the line from the refrigerator. They were a really big help and I would definitely call them again. My overall impression is this team is honest, experienced and professional.
