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. 

Reviews for Parker movers
Paul N.
Hired hands on movers to do a mid day weekend move I hired 4 movers for 3 hours. I On move day 2 movers were on time and 2 were 45 minutes late due to another move going over time. I was an hour into time before the first box was put on my moving truck. The young kids (literally 17 yo) were very inexperienced which made the situation stressful as I had to request multiple time to watch how belongings were being set down or moved. One example was placing a stereo face down on the cement. during the move one of my veneer cabinets was dropped causing Non-repairable damage and denting one of my chairs. I had moved out of my apartment 3rd floor into storage waiting for my move in date. the previous company hired did so in 2.5 hours with a smaller truck. Hands on moved me from storage into a ranch home and it took almost 5 hours and they struggled to fit my belongings into a truck 10 feet bigger. I believe the issues were due to lack of experience. The kids really did work hard and finshed the job. I would have appreciated an experience mover as promised and should be the expectation when hiring a professional moving company.

Joe Jr. And his fellow mover arrived on time and informed me where they were and when they would be in my area for my move. They were very professional, helpful and very courteous. They did i a remarkable job moving everything with no damage to the apartment or furniture. They were very smart and found ways to move things without disassembly and reassembly. Which saved me huge amounts of time later. They were willing to move everything possible and wanted to make sure I was completely satisfied with the way the furniture was laid out in my new space. Overall the best experience I've had with movers.... thanks guys!

This was the most pleasant moving experience I’ve had. They were the salt-of -the-earth type people. My move had a piano and other heavy heirloom antiques. They handled everything with extreme care. I highly recommend them to be used first and foremost for every move out there.

I’m super pleased with this move and very grateful to my movers, Jesus and Christian, for their hard work and professionalism. Setting up my move was simple, answering a few questions and confirming the date and time. The morning of the move, they called to let me know they were 15 minutes away. Once they arrived, they assessed the job, were very fast in moving, careful in and out of my homes leaving no mess, and used care to pack & pad everything well in the truck. These guys are friendly and efficient. You can’t go wrong hiring this company.

We were moving sofas from one house to another. A Sleepsofa went up a set of stairs that bent around 90 degrees and then another 90 degree turn. It was a very heavy and difficult move that was accomplished without damage to anything by a smart determined mover. Thank you Jamale!

EZ Moving is an excellent choice for your moving needs. Mario contacted me promptly, and answered both my calls and emails promptly. His crew was pleasant, courteous, punctual, and helpful. They wrapped all the furniture, before moving it and disassembled and assembled the furniture needed. No hidden fees, straight forward contract.

My move was in-house (needed a large, heavy piece moved from upstairs to downstairs). The guys were courteous, on time (actually a bit early, which worked out fine for me), and moved my furniture without any problems. I would use them again and recommend them. Thanks, guys!

We hired Technique to move us into and out of a temporary apartment while we were in between homes. We hired a larger and more expensive company to move and store the majority of our household items, so basically we hired two movers in a period of seven months. Technique was amazing. Technique was much more professional and careful than the larger company. I highly recommend Technique, and wish we had used them for both moves. The transaction was easy, the crew professional, and they showed great care for our belongings.
