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.

These guys were available for a last minute move for me. They were extremely efficient in getting the move setup, and the movers worked both quickly and carefully. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to move, and would use them again with a move.

By far the best move experience I've ever had with a home move. The movers were prompt at their arrival time and introduced themselves. These basic manners go so far with me as a lot of contractors I work with don't make great impressions because they fail to do this, I'd like to know who I'm working with. The crew was energetic, respectful, and organized. These guys had a 3 level move with me that took about 10 hours total and they never stopped their hustle, literally these guys were jogging back to the truck nonstop. Skyline is not the cheapest out there but you get what you pay for. On my move, nothing broke and these guys didn't take advantage of the hourly rate either. I'd recommend them time and time again, I'll never go with another move company if I can help it! By the way, I do corporate move management for a living and this company really proved to me that they are the best out there!

We had a big move to do. This team, lead by Dio and Landon, did a fantastic job assessing the scope, quoting and executing. I've been unpacking for a few days, no damage, everything was packed and moved well. They are an excellent group of young men with a great work ethic. I highly recommend them. Communication was great before, during and after move.

These guys showed up on short notice and got my furniture moved really quickly. They made sure to protect my furniture before moving it. The price was very reasonable and they were just likeable guys. I plan on using them when I am ready to move my items out of storage. I don’t know what I would have done without them.

RJ, Kody and Alex were professional, courteous and friendly. They were very careful with our things but got everything loaded and unloaded very quickly.

Highest recommendations for the folks at Elite Moving!! These fellows are smart, focused, positive, compassionate, intuitive, diligent, thoughtful, and very respectful of my family and our stuff. Consummate professionals with excellent listening and communication skills as well as an aptitude for problem solving and critical thinking. They made the highly stressful experience of moving 40 miles away almost pleasant with their hard work, punctuality, 'can do' approach and upbeat personalities. So grateful to see good people in the business of helping others! Big heartfelt thank you to Mike, Dylan, Elijah, & everyone at Elite Moving!

Rocky Mountain Moving totally ROCKS! Great value for money well spent. They moved my furniture from an apartment to my new house twenty miles away. They were accommodating of my schedule, showed up right on time, loaded up quickly and were willing to make a stop on the way from the apartment to my new home to pick up one more piece of furniture. At my new house they had everything unloaded in no time and the entire experience was completed much more quickly than I had expected. Friendly, hard workers, very reasonable, and I would use them again and again but I promised myself this was my last move! I highly recommend Rocky Mountain Moving and Hauling. Thank you, Tyrone and John!
