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.

Best moving experience ever, and I've moved many times. The two movers hustled throughout the day, often running back to the house for the next item. They had a great attitude throughout and were incredibly thoughtful and courteous. Hands down the best moving experience. Skyline truly is a different kind of moving company. Thank you!

We didn't get to move.... YET because our closing fell through. But I worked with Amanda on the phone to set everything up. She was VERY friendly and helpful. I had never used a moving service before and she was very helpful! We WILL be using Xtreme Moving when we can finally move (we have a buyer, but now looking for a new home!) Thank you Amanda and Xtreme Moving!

Elite Movers were on time, took great care in moving our furniture, wrapped everything before moving it, and were competitive in their pricing. They did a great job handling our upright piano. Ours was a relatively small job moving heavy furniture out of our house and into our garage while we remodel the first floor, but Jerry and Min moved our furniture as if it were their own. I strongly recommend them.

The movers damaged my wall at my house and then proceeded to charge me for an extra 45 minutes that they spent getting to the move location while I was waiting after the same commute...

My move was effortless. The guys were very professional, very careful with all my boxes and furniture. They were a bit late, however they called me well in advance that they would be late. The guys left no mess behind. This was the best moving company I've used!

I had these guys come out to help pack and then move me a few days later. It was a blessing to have their help. They showed up with a nice truck with an air-lift and they worked efficiently. I would highly recommend. They even stayed later to help us put some new ready-to-assemble furniture together. They gave me a free on-site estimate and between the packing and moving days, their estimate turned out right on. There are cheaper ways to go (U-haul helpers) but you get what you pay for.

I used D&D to move a large book case from my main floor to my basement. I had tried to do it with my son and his friends but we could not maneuver the stairs and it was heavy! D&D showed up and got right to work! “D” gave very precise instructions to his crew and effortlessly had my new bookshelf in place after meticulously wrapping it to ensure no damage to my walls or the unit! I could not be more pleased. I would recommend and use them again!
