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.

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. 

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.

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. 

Reviews for Washington piano movers

I hired Lewis Piano Movers to move my upright piano out of storage into my new apartment. The movers were prompt, friendly, and extremely competent. They helped me replace the casters on my piano at no additional charge, and even helped move things in my apartment to make room for the piano. The entire move was efficient, careful, and (for me) easy. I would use Lewis Piano Movers again and recommend them to anyone.

Charlie and his crew were able to accommodate a piano move on the same day for a reasonable price. They were careful with the piano and I was thankful it all worked out with my rushed timing.

Van and his brothers moved my baby grand today from my house in Washington, DC to my daughter's house in Perry Hall, MD. I was impressed with the care they took to take the piano's legs off, wrap it in thick padding, get it onto a dolly and wheel it out to their truck. In addition, they are very pleasant young men. My daughter reported equal satisfaction on their moving it into her house. I would certainly recommend Lewis Piano Movers to anyone who wants a careful, safe and positive experience moving their piano.

Lewis Piano movers did an excellent job moving an antique spinnet piano from a friend's house to my house. It was a short trip but they were on time, courteous, SUPER careful, fast and thorough. Later that day, when one of the peddles stopped working because a brass rod was loose, I contacted Van and he and his brothers (a family business!) came back the next morning to tighten the brass rod. I was thrilled to find Lewis Piano Movers on Thumbtack and wholeheartedly recommend them.

Just had a great experience with Lewis Piano Movers. Van was communicative and accomodating as we worked out the details of the job: moving a console piano from our basement up a tight staircase to the living room. Shawn, Brad, and DJ were prompt, professional, efficient, and quick in executing the job. Very pleased! I would heartily recommend this company.

Lewis Piano Movers provided the most competitive quote. They call the day before the move to schedule a 2-hour window and then I was told I would get a 30 minute warning call day of. They were running ahead of schedule on the day of the move but called to give me a heads up that they were on their way (about 30 minutes early). Very impressed with their work and they took great care of an antique piano.

We purchased a piano that needed to be moved from a D.C. Apartment building to our Colonial home over the Thanksgiving weekend. Carlos and his team were fabulous at communication, extremely punctual and very well priced. B Moved Inc took all the headache out of moving the piano over the holiday, not a scratch on it and they were so polite. B Moved is a very professional service at a great price. We will certainly use them again in the future and highly recommend them to others. Carla and Ryan B.

This company was very professional and did a great job moving a very heavy player grand piano off our truck and into the apartment where the piano was going. The crew was running a bit late that morning through no fault of their own, but once they arrived they did the job very quickly and safely.

They were an excellent hire. I needed someone last second to move my baby grand piano. They went above and beyond. I would recommend for any moving needs. They made an impossible job look easy

I never knew the difference between having standard movers and a piano mover. Now I see why you have to be specific. This ordeal was awesome and they were very accommodating since I made the request within 5 days. The piano owner was also pleased by the service because she wanted to ensure her possession was handled in the most careful way. I would definitely recommend again

I had to move an upright piano. First they came late; second, they were not friendly at all ; third, I realized after the mover's departure that they caused damage at multiple points to my walls without saying something about it.

I worked with Pearl, who is stellar, to schedule a short-noticed piano move the following day. She offered a competitive flat rate, was extremely responsive and professional. On the day of the move, she and her crew were punctual and in touch throughout. Unfortunately, there was some accidental damage to the piano, but the crew and Pearl were apologetic and all and their manager have been in touch about a repair, which they will cover. Couldn’t be happier with this company.

Professional. Quick. Showed up on time. They do this for the best. Right after my appt, they were headed to the Kennedy Center, where they move their pianos for special events, apparently.

At the drop of a hat (ie: same day service) they were able to come move a piano from one house to another in a timely and careful manner. Thanks so much!

The movers were great and moved quickly but carefully. The scheduling process for my personal piano move was more challenging since I was competing with a request to quickly move many professional Steinways by another party. The Lewis team was gracious, but could have been clearer about sharing other time options for the move. I would use them again, and recommend them for quick, thorough moving, however.
