Your burning questions: answered

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. 

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. 

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.

I had a great experience with Elite Moving. They moved me during a snow storm and into a location with 3 stories. Not the ideal moving conditions by any means, yet they were friendly, professional, and went out of their way to ensure everything was taken care of. 5 stars!

Skyline Moving is superb! From the owner to the moving staff, these men were impressive. I was at ease with hiring Skyline after meeting with Justin, the owner. On moving day, the entire crew of four were all so respectful, hardworking, courteous, and caring! I was so impressed by their professional work ethic. Bonus... they completed the move at the low end of the estimate with zero damages. Thank you, Justin, Jersey, Isaac, Ricky, and Luke!!!

The movers were professional and friendly. They called me when they left the warehouse to let me know they were on the way. They moved some really, really heavy furniture with no damage. The price was excellent and well worth the money.

Skinny Guy moving was great! They came in, did they job quickly and efficiently, and were on their way. It was like a well-oiled machine. Their prices were also far more reasonable than any of the other big box movers (looking at you College Hunks). Thanks, gentlemen!

I've been looking for weeks to hire someone to move an old heavy, 300 pound juke box. It was a half hour job, moving less than a mile away including 1 flight of steps. All I heard from everyone was $400 dollars, we have a 2 hour minimum, good luck no one will move your juke box for less than $250. For a half hour work, that made no sense. I was lucky to run into Scott and Brian, 2 strong guys with a great work ethic, that own White Buffalo Logistics! They did it for less than half of the $250! It was a hard job and they didn't complain a bit. If you keep hearing sorry no one does a move for less than 2 hours minimum, don't buy it! Scott and Brian specialize in whatever move you need! They are pros and I'm glad I met them, you will be too! White Buffalo Logistics!

I hired EZ Moving to do a local move from a 1 bedroom apartment to another across town. I was greeted by two young professionals right on time. They jumped right in, ready to work. They loaded up the 17' truck very quickly but carefully and packed in everything securely. I met them at the new place and they quickly unloaded everything very efficiently. In all, it took about 4 hours total. I was very impressed with how quickly and smoothly everything was handled. I would highly recommend EZ.

1Stop was professional and very quick. The only negative I had was it was extremely pricey considering the few items they had to move (3), but as it was last minute notice on my part, I consider it acceptable. I would definitely recommend these guys.

CCI Movers did a great job. We had set a target time limit and they went over by an hour; however, they were able to get so much more than just the large furniture we were expecting. We will likely use them again.

Update: After speaking with the manager/owner(?) my concerns about the move were heard. He was very professional and made appropriate steps towards correcting the situation. I would give this company another try....The movers were very pleasant and polite, however they were not fast and seemed to be working for the hourly rate. In my quote I was promised plastic wrap but they showed up without it or the right tools to do the job. This resulted in damage to my leather couch, which was minimally accounted for in the total. I was quoted a discount for the delays and slow going, then the discount changed at the final payout. If you have the time and money, these guys are really nice, but I wouldn't recommend if you're on a schedule.

The guys showed up on time, worked their hearts out, went FAR above and beyond the call of duty and didn't even stop for lunch before completing the job. They were dedicated, funny, very careful and accommodating and everything you could possibly expect from movers. Thank you for a wonderful experience (Jared, Tiny, Beefy (Maurice) and Robert)!
