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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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.

This company provides me with the worst moving experience I have ever had. They sent a two man team over to move my two bedroom and two bath apartment. Only one of the movers was a competent moving professional. The other guy was totally useless. The professional mover apologized to me for how useless and lazy the other mover was. It took many hours to pack and wrap everything and to disassemble the beds because only one of the movers was capable. Eventually the company sent a third mover over to complete the job. It took 7 hours. This company will likely respond that the job required 3 movers. Neither they nor any other moving company that I provided an inventory to and received a quote (and there were several others) said that more than two movers would be necessary to complete the move. To make matters worse, the useless mover lost my fob to my building which costs $125 (the company claims that he put it on my counter but it was not there and that makes no sense because I was there with him and he could have handed it to me instead of placing it somewhere and not telling me) and they broke a $500 lamp. To this day (some 5 weeks later) they have not processed my claim for the broken lamp and they have stopped answering texts. DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY!

We confirmed our move a few days before. The day, I received a text stating the truck was in an accident. I tried calling and was sent straight to voice-mail. They never called to explain and didn't show up. I was left scrambling to move myself and was able to find a better company called Moving penguin. Miami mover is super unprofessional. Do not waste your time!!!

The best moving experience! Alex and friend were extremely professional and courteous. Handled everything with care, couldn’t have done it better myself. I was truly impressed with their level of service. They are committed and trustworthy. Everything was moved to a very tight storage unit and they didn’t give up, they were able to fit everything in! Definitely calling them again when I move to my new place.

The 3 men were professional and very kind. They were able to move my items from Miami to Delray in a few hours. I was impressed by how polite and helpful they were. I’d hire them again. Highly recommend.

The 2 guys I hired did a good job as far as communication, hard work, and no slacking on the job. The problem I ran into was that I told the owner when I originally booked I had 2 bedroom sets, a living room, dining room and crib to move plus 20 or so boxes. He asked if I wanted a 3rd guy and I said no, because I am not knowledgable in moving services. He should have explained that the job would have gone much much much faster with 3 people and the price was only 15$ more per hour with the 3rd person. Because I only had two guys, it took them around 9 hours to do the less than 2 mile move which should have taken no more than 6. It's owners job to explain and make recommendations based on prior knowledge. Also, I think 4$ for a roll of tape is pretty ludicrous! But that's just me :) overall, the two guys did a good job.

We had a slight hiccup with scheduling but Mathew and his co-worker are so professional and accommodating it was no big deal. They hooked up the cable and changed the legs on my grandmothers bed. All the furniture was moved without a scratch and placed exactly where we wanted it. Good, honest men who work fast.
