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.

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.

We had an amazing move today with Sardar and Jamal. From the beginning, Zayn Movers was responsive on thumbtack and were quick to answer my questions and give a reasonable quote. A really smooth process. We are new to the area so we really relied on our movers for this move. Sardar came in person to estimate our move and he was very accurate and made recommendations for the day of to ensure a smooth move. Today, they arrived exactly on time and quickly moved us from our 2 bed apartment in Norwalk to our new home in Stamford. They meticulously plastic wrapped and used blankets to protect our furniture. Sardar and Jamal were so friendly and in good spirits the whole move and it just made for a very happy experience. They were careful and aware of all walls/doors/fixtures and everything was moved in perfect condition. It was such a wonderful experience and Sardar is very professional. I would happily recommend these services to anyone.

The worst moving experience we have ever had!! The whole experience was extremely stressful, and there were thousands of dollars worth of damage done to both are items and are home! Hire at your own risk!! Damaged a $9,000 dinner table with long scratches running the length of the table! Movers rented a U-Haul for 2 hours when they were booked for 5 hours. Movers were very upset and kept threatening to leave with all our items loaded on the truck! Had to convince them to take at least some of the items, and promised to tip an extra $200, for them to work half the time they were booked for! They were annoyed with each item they loaded, cursing and threatening to leave. We were too afraid to even ask them to move all the items they were hired to move! Only half the items were actually moved. My wife and I had to help them load and unload multiple items, which defeats the purpose of hiring movers in the first place! We ended up having to pay full price, only a fraction of our items were actually moved, they didn’t have plastic bags or any of the items movers usually have.

Courteous but did it move my platform bed. Said it wouldn't fit in the elevator, but I was able to move it the next day (after securing a uhaul van) to move it and the bags that they wouldn't move. I was told that everything had to be boxed and I was referred to the website. I still don't set this on thumbtack (maybe I missed it) however the uhaul truck want big enough to fit the platform bed nor the additional bags (tied or untied). I still tipped them beduse overal. They were nice guys, just disappointed about having to move the platform bed. I initiallly contacted Roya for a quick move in early October, but had another offer. However, I kept them in mind with the thirds part of the move. Shay handled the logistics for his more. I would still recommend them! Just ensure all items are boxed (not even tied bags)...

Highly recommend working with Heavy Lifting Movers & Joe. They were able to book me within a week's notice for moving some furniture pieces coming out of a larger home into an apartment, with a lot of stairs in-between. All pieces were carefully wrapped and arrived at the destination in better condition than they left- even a vanity table that was a bit wobbly pre-move got tightened up as a part of the process. Joe was easy to get a hold of, more than reasonable with the quoting proces and is clearly very experienced with all types of moves. Definitely made the moving process as stress-free as possible and couldn't be happier with the service!

The Right Choice Pros did an EXCELLENT job. They arrived on time and were ready and fully prepared for the job. We were moving from a 2 bedroom to another 2 bedroom and they came with all of the right tools and got right to work. The 2 guys that came to help with the move were funny and polite. They also helped us move a large, heavy dresser to the street that we were selling. I would absolutely recommend The Right Choice Pros to anyone and would definitely hire them again for our next move.

We had a great experience. Did a full pack and move locally using their materials - the price was reasonable, everyone worked very hard on a hot day, and nothing came out broken. The movers took special care with a few wine glasses I told them were more delicate and there were no issues. And compared to the moving companies recommended by our broker, they were very good value.

I used VS movers service for our recent move from CT to NY for 2 bedroom apt. They were super punctual and worked very fast to get everything done. All our furniture, TV, and other fragile items were packed wonderfully and even things that I was unable to pack they packed it for us last minute. They literally did all our move within the allotted time slots we had assigned them. Very professional service and good value for money and amazing quality of work. Definitely recommend their service to all looking to move.

I highly recommend this company! The owner was patient and responsive to the many questions I asked. I also cannot say enough about the team I had. The movers were strategic about placing my fragile items within the truck to avoid being damaged during the ride. The guys were also cautious about properly moving my furniture to avoid scuffing the walls and floors. I have had bad luck with items being broken during a move, so I am extremely impressed and grateful for the crew I had. If I have to move again, without hesitation, I will call this company!

I called at 10PM on Wednesday night and had Shay and Kevin at my door by 10am the next day on Thursday! They did a great job and all the furniture was moved well and under 3 hours! Price was super reasonable - they were the best deal so obviously went with them. Clearly experienced and knows what he is doing and came with ratchet ties, blankets, and hand trucks. Really really a saved me during an emergency move. Will definitely be calling them back for my next move! Thanks so much!
