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. 

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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

I called many movers in preparation for my upcoming move. Do Right was the only team that was able to meet my price point. But more importantly, they were the ONLY team that followed up in a caring, professional manner. They took time to make sure I was all set. Due to personal circumstances, I did not require any moving services in the end, however, Do Right provided the peace, assurance and caring follow through anyone moving their life needs. I highly recommend them if you are considering moving. Their kindness, care and professionalism are a rare find!

They were really great and wrapped all of my furniture! My only complaint was the move was delayed 2 hours because of their prior job going late, but the actual moving experience was awesome!

They were on time and did a great job of moving. But the ONLY thing that makes me feel not comfortable was they raised my price higher in the middle of the work, to keep moving during a small raining day, otherwise, they gonna stop. I can't have two days for moving and they gonna charge me twice for another day too. I HAVE TO compromise the raised price at that time and let them finish the moving. Actually, the rain was not that bad. That's why I only give 4 stars.

I’d hire this moving company again in the future. 2 young men showed up on time and finished the job one hour earlier than I expected. They did not take breaks, all they did was work until the job was done. I had done a lot of research and I found this to be the cheapest moving company around in Hartford. Thank you for a great experience Advantage Moving!

This moving company proved my choice to hire them to be the right one. I had a pleasant and stress free moving that was pretty relaxed and well organized. They moved us from Connecticut to North Carolina in 8 days. We are very impressed. They charged a moderate amount and also gave us very useful tips. This company really earned my recommendation and five-star review.

After becoming a victim of a scam company, I found New Chapter moving company on thumbtack and booked them. Their service was great, very professional and budget friendly. Despite minor alterations in plans from their end, Dan was extremely responsive and responsibly throughout the process ( even at 8 pm ) and reached out to me about the expected delay before time and was willing to work around my schedule. The movers were very efficient did not waste a minute. I highly recommend New Chapter Movers.

When I tell you that I had this overwhelming sense of anxiety over this move, everyone in my circle already knew what was up. Then these guys showed up and wow. They were on time, they were efficient, and soooo professional. If I can give them a 10, I would. I highly recommend them for all of your moving needs. Incredible experience

Brian was on time and did a great job moving the furniture. He went above and beyond. We had some difficulty in getting a sofa into our apartment and Brian took the door off and was able to get the sofa into the apartment. He communicated with me by text on arrival times and was on time when arriving. I would highly recommend him for any move that you might have.

Good experience. Leader and truck driver punctual, other movers late and no-show. Didn’t make much difference to me, but still thought I should mention. Peter was great, getting almost everything packed by himself while the other mover showed up. Only knocked off a star because some things came out grimy out of the truck. Good experience, however. Would recommend.

Hire them, right now. If you've been shopping around - stop. They packed our large items, including reptile enclosures:- and the rest of our one bedroom apartment into our new building, carried it all up 5 flights (yep, they moved an entire apartment up 5 flights of stairs) within 4 hours. I can tell you right now that these guys are the best value at the best price and affordable doesn't mean cheap in their case. Their professionalism is second to none. You won't be dis
