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.

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. 

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 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.

Give clear instructions per the calendar for the business. I was confirmed for a move with a specific time and then the company told me the night before my move that they had another move. They wouldnt be able to get to me until the 12:00 or 1:00 pm in the afternoon. So disappointing.

We hired Dynamic Movers to move us out of our 2 story home into a storage unit while we wait for the closing date on our new house. The guys were on time, efficient and professional. We were so impressed, we are hiring them again to complete the move to our new home.

Manager Jose saved the day for us! We had a last minute cancellation from another moving company and late at night Jose was able to coordinate a truck for the following morning to get the contents of our home into storage. We loved their service so much that we booked them to move us out of storage into our new home. And again, they were incredible! If you are in Central Florida and considering a moving company, look no further. Dynamic Solutions offers the flexibility and the service to make your move easy!

I booked a 3 hour moving with you all from 1pm-4pm for 1/14/2017, the movers finished an hour early, (1pm-2:40pm) I was still charged as if I got the whole 3 hours of moving. When I asked Terell (I believe is his name) he responded and said I have to pay that because it's the minimum. When I spoke with Melanie while booking the move, I was told that if the movers finished early I am only charged for the amount of time I used. I also reached out to Melanie after the movers were finished to notify her that my parents discovered damage done to their walls and she said it will be investigated and the Manager for investigation will be contacting me. I have yet to hear from anyone from the company.

Moving and Cruising is an AMAZING company. If I could give them more stars I would. This is a family company who have EXTREMELY good work ethics. BEST TEAM WORK IVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME! Let me tell you! We had to move from a house to a second floor apartment with very narrow staircases. We had very heavy furniture and they managed to move it carefully and swiftly with no damage. They cared for our belongings as if it was their own. This was a last minute job and they responded back in a jiffy. Their prices are unbeatable, their work ethic is incredible. Hire them for your next move! I guarantee you will not regret it! Thank you again Moving and Cruising family!

The guys were great with my move. I was just moving a sectional couch from a storage unit to my home. I had to move another sectional to another room before we could place the one they picked up. They did is so quickly and were really great to work with. They were kind and considerate and very nice young men. I will use them again for sure. Great job!

College Movers is as it sounds. Except they may or may not be in college and that’s not the point. The service is acceptable but not monumental in that the movers (laborers) are generally not really experienced or in the packing and loading logistics of a large home. If you are even slightly disorganized or perhaps having to move suddenly, then it’s to be understood that the help you receive will be dependent upon how much pre organizing and pre packing you do ahead of moving day. If you have lived in your home for more than 3 years, have children, or more than 2 bedrooms, then preparation is very vital to your success in getting all your most wanted items packed and loaded properly into your storage container or truck. That said, College Movers do put in the back breaking work of moving things like pianos and they did get it done. It isn’t completely their fault that a lot of our items we wanted to take didn’t go into the load. But, I believe a more experienced crew would have had a more take charge approach as to prioritizing the loading process of items that were going and how to maximize the available space in an appropriate way that would have made it possible to load more items than were loaded. So, yes they are very punctual and priced fair. But, don’t expect a “company” of professional movers. In my experience it was a few young guys who can defiantly move things and get your process moving along in any situation. Worked well enough to make the rest work out. Thanks again!

Difficulty booking, office manager condescending. Items were damaged in the move. Would not use again.

I had a relatively small amount of things to move, but the communication and willingness to work me in on a schedule that was convenient to me were exceptional. This company will wrap your furniture in plastic wrap to protect it during the move! This is the second time that I used them, and I will use them again.

The guys were on time and very proffesional. They were very conscious of all our stuff and did a great job considering the three flights of stairs they had to navigate during the first part of the move. Our family was thankful for the job they did and I reccomend them to any one looking to move there items.
