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.

David was quick to respond to my request for a quote to move a baby grand here in the Wilmington area. At first, the quote started at $350 (which I thought was reasonable, and wanted to move forward), but quickly ballooned up to $450 when he found out there were a few (straight, very wide, outdoor) stairs leading up to my front door. When my mother called to follow up with him about the move, he jacked the price up to $495 to move the piano 6.5 miles (and was very clearly irritated when we had the audacity to contact him on Memorial Day to schedule the move--there was some definite attitude, which seemed excessive. It's not like we called him on Christmas morning, not to diminish the significance of Memorial Day). I almost got the sense that he really didn't want the job, and to discourage us, he over-bid in an effort to either make a decent chunk of change out of the gig or get out of the job completely. He had success on the latter. After calling a few other piano movers, we found Duffy Piano Movers (who came highly rated by a local piano tuner: [exact quote] "these are the only piano movers I trust) and offered to move the piano for $300. Three super sweet young men moved the piano without any issue, and best of all, the piano was still in tune when it arrived! If you're in the Philly/Wilmington area, go with Duffy. David was okay, and I don't want to throw anyone under the bus, but I was not left with a good impression of his company or his approach to customer service. Overly expensive, and my correspondences were rather abrupt and gruff.

McKenzie Movers did an excellent job moving my piano. They were professional and carried out the move without a hitch. Although the move was approximately 40 miles away, it was completed in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend and use McKenzie Movers again.

Originally called to have a piano moved. In the end, we wound up also having them move some boxes and furniture. The move went smoothly and there were no problems. Before the move, when I had questions they were very prompt in responding.

Took a difficult piano move and worked through safely and deliberately. Came on time and finished on time even with rain delay. Would hire again. Thanks

I had a spinet piano that I needed moved at the last minute. Time constraints were tight. They were late arriving at the moving site, however, once there, they moved with great precision knowing exactly what needed to be accomplished. Once at the new location, they quickly reversed the steps to unpack the piano and I was not late for my appointment. Thank you very much for a very good local professional job done well. Arriving late due to traffic was nerve wracking but they did what they set out to do.

I recently purchased a piano and was unsure of how to get it to my house. I reached out, and received a response immediately! They were able to come out just 2 days later and successfully moved my piano from one house to another. I will definitely use them again when I need help in the future!

They were AWESOME! We had scheduled our move for a week out and somehow through a mix-up, they arrived at our house a week early. To some, this may have been a problem, but I was thrilled. They were willing to come back at the correct time, so if we were not ready, it would not have been a big deal, but since we wanted the piano moved ASAP, we took advantage of the early time. They were efficient, took good care of the instrument, and even offered a discount on a tuning Can't promise they would do this for everyone, but a very appreciated gesture!). We had a pleasant conversation and the whole process was all in a timely manner! We were very pleased and will gladly use them again! On top of all of this, their price was perfect! The first quote I got from a different company was $430 dollars more than B&N and the 2nd best quote, after B&N, was still almost $200 more! I HIGHLY recommend their services! you will NOT be disappointed!!
