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.

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.

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 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 I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

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!

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!

Company - Dissappointed with the company. Will not hire them again, I have given all the details to the company about stairs and other details. The discussion started with moving my treadmill (that they wont do any disassembly) while it was agreed during the discussion, I even sent them the model of the treadmill to make sure that they will be able to get it. Another complaint from the movers was regarding moving my stuff to the bedrooms upstairs. I conveyed this was a townshouse and had stairs. Who would complain when it was agreed? The movers were decent and made last minute changes. While I paid good premium to get the services, I did not like the regular grumping and complaining during the job. I did not expect this

A truly horrific moving experience and the worst of any moves I have had combined. I have had coast to coast relocations with no or fewer issues. The team took 6 hours to move a few pieces of pre-packed furniture only (mostly Room & Board, Crate and Barrel and Herman Miller apartment-type (lighter) items over 300 feet across the street from my home. The process was disorganized and chaotic with furniture being left throughout my condo building for hours. Take a look at the photos — without my knowledge screws were removed from a CB platform bed by simply pulling them out without a screwdriver, ruining the bed in the process. Subsequently, the screws left exposed scratched and damaged other furniture during the move. Many other items were also scraped or damaged, including my outside door... the actual cost significantly exceeded the quotes received from full service movers with established reputation. Hope you have a better luck!

Shay and his team were very diligent, thorough and professional during the move of our two bedroom. I don't think we had anything broken and they worked efficiently to get the job done quickly. They also brought an upbeat attitude which must be hard to maintain through all of that hard work! It made the move more enjoyable than expected. I would definitely recommend them.

I'm not sure why this company would have Connecticut area turned on at all. They were unprepared to arrive on time, and arrived 2 hours late with excuses about traffic. But anyone should be able realize that rush hour during a holiday weekend is going to be bad and would leave earlier. Nothing was on the truck even an hour after arriving at our home. We had a small 900 sq foot condo that we had everything already prepacked in boxes ready to go. It took 6 hours to move just half of the stuff out of the condo and nothing was moved into any of the rooms at our new home. We just had them dump stuff into the garage at the end to move things along. We were extremely disappointed, considering we spent $800 to have them move us and ended up having to rent a uhaul the next day and move the second half of our home. They also left balled up tape, tape tubes, and trash all over our condo which was extremely unprofessional. They then pushed us to give a tip at the end. Based on the reviews, I was expecting a great experience, and was left extremely frustrated.
