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.

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 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.

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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

The movers did a good job. They were very responsive, punctual, and on time, and explained all the details of the move. They kept in touch with us and kept us informed about moving our pool table.

These people were terrific to work with. From Stefani arranging the details of the move on the phone to the four men who moved my belongings, the whole experience was professional and pleasant. I was given a reasonable estimate and the movers actually completed the move in less time. They were very careful of the items being moved as well as the houses I moved from and to. They easily handled the moving of my small grand piano. I relied on the reviews on their site in making my decision and the reviewers did not exaggerate. I would recommend Dirty Deeds to anyone who would like to experience a tension free relocation!

We had a few items that needed to be moved from the basement to the first floor. Our house is 100+ years old so the stairs, ceiling height and tight turns can be pretty tricky. Everything was moved quickly and safely and he even helped move a few other boxes for us (Christmas decorations) before he left. Very friendly and would definitely recommend!

Dirty Deeds was fabulous! They were timely, efficient, VERY careful to move a huge and heavy antique piano, great about confirming and following up and did a lot to protect my house doors, walls and floors. The original move was scheduled, but when they arrived, they saw that they were going to need an additional person to ensure the job was done correctly. They moved some furniture up from the basement for me anyway and then did not charge anything beyond their original fee. Unheard of in todays world! Great work and great people. I have hired them to move my whole house in a few weeks and give them the highest recommendation.

What can't I say about the amazing team at Dirty Deeds? This company is great to work with from start to finish. The wonderful customer service starts with Stefani (the officer manager & owner) who completed our quote in person (if you're lucky enough to work with her before she goes out on maternity leave... Well that is it in a nutshell, you're lucky!). Stefani was responsive to all the questions I peppered at her. Then she came to our home in order to complete an onsite estimate, which was reassuring to me to know they knew exactly what would be involved in the move. In trying to guesstimate how many boxes it would take to move us, she was able to help us estimate that as well. Our closing date changed, which affected our moving date. Stefani was accommodating and understand, while giving us multiple options for available dates to move around our new closing date. Then she called the night before our move to verify the team would be at the house and at a specific timeframe. On the day of our move, we had 6 very energetic & friendly movers, including Jeremy the owner (Stefani's husband). From the moment they stepped foot into our home, they each introduced themselves, shook our hands, asked for a tour of the house and were grabbing boxes during the tour. They were very professional and handled our belongings with care. There was one small ding on a corner of our wall (which was very easy to repair) and the one mover kept apologized throughout the day about it. The moulding of my desk was accidently cracked during the move, Jeremy immediate advised me of it, apologized and said they would fix when they returned 2 days later, which they did! Finally due to all the chaos around our closing, I forgot to have a pod delivered prior to moving day for the guys to empty for us at our new home. Stefani (again being very understanding, flexible, & accommodating) helped us schedule 2 guys to come back 2 days later to empty the pod when it was delivered. When the guys came back to empty the pod & fix my desk, it was at no charge due to the cracked moulding. This was their way of saying they were sorry, above and beyond of what they had already said in person. This was very unexpected! Because of this our move came in slightly less than quoted, and due this team being so efficient and hard working. They were very pleasant & easy to work with! I would refer any & everyone to them! While I hate moving with a passion, Dirty Deeds Moving Co. makes it much easier! Thank you!

These guys are AWSOME!!! We hired Dirty Deeds to move our household goods from one house in Loveland to another house in Loveland. Prior to our move: We had great communication with Stefani via Thumbtack messaging, email as well as telephonically. Jeremy gave us a timely and very accurate estimate. During the move: Jeremy and his crew showed up on time and ready to work. They took great care in protecting both home with padding on doorways and corners to avoid potential damage. They were very professional, careful and efficient. They worked with a sense of urgency and even double checked after the move was complete to see if everything was where we needed it. I would give them 6 stars if I could.
