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.

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’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. 

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 you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

The moving went well and took less time than I anticipated. The movers made two small "knicks" in the wall which we repaired. We will use the movers again.

The guys at Skyline Moving Company were fantastic. They took great care with our stuff while working efficiently and effectively the whole time! We had five guys (Noah, Dylan, Gaibe, RJ, and Thomas) and 2 trucks. They showed up on time, hustled the entire move, and finished ahead of schedule. All five guys were awesome and I highly highly recommend Skyline Moving to anyone and everyone.

The movers did great! We had just remodeled our basement so we were very concerned about having movers in and causing damage to the remodel. Moving Colorado heard our concern and took extra care with everything. They even walked us through some of the “tight” areas and explained how they would try to get the furniture down without scratching the walls. I would highly recommend this company!

Brian, Davor, and Carlos from EZ Moving were excellent. They arrived punctually and were able to load the 26’ truck efficiently. They were extremely careful with our furniture and wrapped all delicate items diligently. The drop off experience was also seamless. They made sure to place all necessary protections and moved all large furniture into the right areas. We can not recommend them more! I know we will use them again for future moves.

Quick, efficient, flexible, strong! Moved some furniture pieces from my Dads home for 10 years to his new senior apartment. I couldnt go with them to the apt due to covid so they listened to my 84 yo fathers instructions and kindly and quickly moved the pieces where needed.

Two men moved some furniture inside of my house from one room to another. They were an excellent team and took very good care of my walls and furniture. They even suggested and helped with two things I hadn't thought of: placing furniture pads under the feet of a desk that was being moved onto a wood floor, and plastic wrapping for a bunk bed they dismantled and moved into my garage so that I could sell it. They made some other sensible and useful suggestions and really cared about doing a good job. They gave me a two hour window and called when they were en route so I would know exactly when to expect them. I recommend them highly and would use them again. I do wish they had a one-hour minimum for internal moves instead of their two-hour minimum, but two hours was the standard for every mover I checked. Their price was the best bid I received.

These guys are amazing! They got right down to business upon arrival, and achieved everything we needed with haste, professionalism, and handled all of our items carefully. They set us up for a stress-free interstate move, and we’re so happy to support the Academy while receiving impeccable, top-tier service. Many thanks to The Other Side Movers!!!

This is my second time working with EZ Moving. The guys did a great job this time as well. We were the second job for the day, so when they ran late, Victor made sure to notify me as soon as he had an estimated arrival time, though they still arrived around the time Mario estimated. They got everything loaded and moved quickly and we haven’t seen any damage on any of our furniture. Hopefully we won’t need to move any time soon but I know we will try to use them again in the future.
