Your burning questions: answered

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.

Reviews for Arvada movers
Saira T.
2 Friendly Movers did an excellent job moving a very large, very old upright grand. Scheduling was very easy. The team was very professional and took great care of the piano during the move. We actually used their services twice within 48 hours - to move the piano from the first level to the basement - a task we thought impossible! 2 Friendly Movers was prompt and up for the challenge. It was truly a miracle they were able to move a piano of this size to the basement. I would absolutely recommend working with 2 Friendly Movers!

Jerry and Min from Elite Movers were pleasant, professional, careful, courteous, on time, and honest. I will recommend Elite Movers to others. I will use Elite Movers for my next moving needs. Now, I will see if I can still play a piano!

We recently moved from Arvada to Stapleton. The move went well. The moving team was on time and were able to get us to our new location in a timely manner. I was impressed with the initial personalized response from Todd when he responded back. It wasn't just an automated quote, but a thoughtful response, using my first name in the communications. This really speaks to the customer experience that I think the rest of people talked about in their reviews. Todd also sent out Sam to take a look at the space and give me a good quote for our move. Sam was professional and nice and was able to give me a quote for our movers. Overall, we were very happy with this experience and recommended Skyline Moving Company to my family who moved 2 days later.

This move was for a very meticulous, elderly family member. Conscious Movers were flexible with our schedule, did a careful walk through for their estimate, and did a first rate job of packing and then loading a 16 ft container. They were experienced, efficient and easy to get along with, Best moving experience ever!

Very pleased. 8 hour move including a complicated piano into an Independent living situation. With Covid measures followed. No errors, and very responsive as needs became evident through the move. Foreman was very good at reading the customer’s anxiety and offering modifications. All four movers were “self motivated”, friendly, personable and very respectful.

I used Chuck to assess and then move a very heavy player piano. He was thorough in his examination and with the help of his team moved the piano to my home. He is an expert in all areas of piano moving and care. I was extremely pleased and will be using him to tune it in a few weeks. I highly recommend him for any piano needs!

The movers arrived late but dispatch communicated to me prior to the appointment time. For the inconvenience they sent me a larger truck on them! Once they arrived they were kind and courteous, and moved like the wind, ha ha, they were so quick even up the three flight of stairs at our new apartment! I recommend them to anyone not wanting to move their own stuff.

This is my second time using these guys for a move. Alex and Victor showed up on time, and worked quickly and efficiently to get things done. I received a couple quotes that were a little cheaper from other companies, but these guys have simple, straight forward pricing. No surprise fees tacked on at the end of the move. If you're in need of a good moving company, I definitely recommend them.

The movers did arrive on time but were unaware they needed to pickup furniture from two places. This made them a bit cranky and I felt they were less careful with my things after this. They did make time to do the move even though it was not in their plans.

I was so impressed with Elite movers who helped me get a new kitchen table moved and set up. They were extremely professional, helpful, prompt, and courteous! Jerry even offered to help fix my door for me. :) Despite saying they didn't have to put it together they insisted on helping me which I was truly grateful for. I fully intend to use them for any and all future moving needs given my experience and strongly recommend them to others.
