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.

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.

These gentlemen helped me move into my new house last minute. They were extremely professional and even offered advice for my future moves. They worked efficiently, and they had outstanding rates that significantly reduced the stress of moving. I'm grateful for them and would definitely recommend them to anybody I know who is planning on moving.

When the movers, a very overweight older man and a trainee, came to my house the first question was what goes? We were standing in a room full of boxes so I was a little taken back by the question. Then I was under the impression that the movers would be bringing a couple of large picture boxes as discussed when Jared Scott came through my house for the estimate. The movers had to take time to go back to the office to get the boxes making the start time late. I have two white chairs and a sofa which did not get wrapped in plastic so they got dirty. When we finally arrived at the move to address it was after dark and I had to keep after these movers to make them put the boxes in the right rooms and they boxes were clearly marked as to where they went. As I am unpacking I have discovered that every box has been shaken up and thrown around which is not the care I expected from a professional mover. All in all this is the worst move ever thanks to Keeping it Moving movers.

75% of why we hired movers was to move 3 very large cactus and move our living room furniture into the basement. We provided these details up front. When they arrived at our house, these guys flat out refused to move the cactus unless we purchased their boxes, which we did and in the end and they taped too short boxes around the base of the cactus in a way that was actually the cause of them breaking. You can't tape things ONTO plants!!!! Then before we when left the move-from location they had damaged my antique dresser because they moved it without taking the drawers off. Who does that??? When we got to the move-to destination, they freaked out about moving things into my basement apartment even though I was VERY clear that everything would be going into a basement when I received my quote. They refused to move our couch and chair downstairs and then left in under 2 hours while still charging us for the entire time because they were in a hurry to get to the next job. We moved the couches ourselves (3 women) in about 15 minutes. These guys (the crew lead especially) were lazy hacks, and all the above is in addition to changing my our move time repeatedly, including at 7pm the night before we were scheduled, and even trying to change the day without 24 hours notice. If you want your move half done and your things broken and to receive multiple stressful calls trying to reschedule your move while you're at work, choose these guys. Otherwise find a more reliable and upstanding company. I wish I'd saved my money and moved everything myself!

Amazing!! I needed help moving my mother's Baby Grand Piano to my home (out of my dad's, for the first time in over 2 decades). It was super easy to set up an appointment, communication was fantastic and the job was done much faster than I thought it was going to take (having the equipment needed to move a Piano was also wonderful)! I could go on and on about the things I enjoyed about working with them, so I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Box Pack N Move! They do not only move Pianos folks, and since they can move a heavy Piano and not have problems, then I'd highly reccomend using them for your regular moving needs!!
