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. 

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. 

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.

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.

I have moved many times in my life and this company by far is one of the best moves I have ever had. Great communication right from the start, from discussing the rate, time frame and items to be moved; Clean Cut Movers arrived on time and were very pleasant and professional. All of our items were moved quickly and carefully. If you need to move I would recommend this company to everyone. Thank you so much Clean Cut Movers.

We hired Southern Cross Moving to move the contents of our 2 bedroom condo to a local storage unit. Our experience could not have been better. They completely took the stress out of what could have been a very stressful experience. Greg, the owner, was very conscientious about getting the estimate as close to accurate as possible and I have to say -- he was spot on! Kyle and Paul were our movers on moving day -- the dynamic duo of moving! They were personable, competent, careful with our belongings and very efficient. They worked well together and their packing and moving technique was an art form -- the move worked like clockwork. I cannot say enough about Kyle, Paul and Greg -- and Southern Cross Moving. I would recommend them without hesitation.

I would recommend this moving company to anyone. The guys were punctual, friendly and professional. They worked quickly (especially considering I was moving to the third floor). I would definitely use these movers again, although I hope it's way in the future because I'm not looking to move again anytime soon. LOL!

First Harvest Movers and Cleaning were fast moving professionals. I am very pleased with how quickly they packed and moved my possessions. My only disappointment was that a few pieces of furniture were chipped and one piece was mended on the spot. Conscientious professionals.

Clean Cut Movers is the best moving company I have ever used. I moved locally from house to house. The movers were professional, on time, and very willing to help in anyway possible. They worked around pets secured in bed rooms that eventually were moved so they could continue loading.They worked quickly and efficiently. I offered to buy them lunch and take a break between loading and unloading and they wouldn't hear of it. We will be using them again soon for another family member. A drain pipe for the washer was broken during the move because it was not secured properly. Nick came out and fixed it within hours of us discovering it. He and his company are the real deal. I highly recommend you use them. You move will be less stressful if you do.

We hired Southern Cross for a local move-from one home in Cape Coral to another. The movers arrived on time and they were polite, friendly, and efficient. They treated our furniture and belongings as if they were their own. We highly recommend this mover and look forward to hiring them again in the future.

I used Nash moving for a local Cape Coral move, these guy's are great. both loading and unloading went extremely smooth. Everything they had to disassemble was reassembled. The move was done in a very timely fashion and they came in under the aggreed on quote. I would strongly recommend this father and son team.

I called 2 moving companies off thumbtack. He was first to respond and first to give estimate. His employees were on time and hard workers. Did all that I asked for and very reasonable prices. Nick is very professional, yet I felt like family talking with him about the move. When I move again I will use him. This is the least stressful move I ever had, thanks to Nick and his staff.

Nicholas and his assistant worked nearly 12 hours on our intra-city move. They were punctually on time, very careful with all our household goods, especially those that were very fragile. We couldn't have asked for two better movers. You will not be sorry you chose Clean Cut Movers...they provide an impressive service!!!

What's the Key to a pleasurable Moving experience? the question answers itself...it's Key Moving Services. To be exact, I hired Key Moving to move a very heavy, ornate couch to my home & was delighted when Johnny, Rod & Arnold showed up promptly at my front door. They cradled the couch like a newborn & settled the sofa down with a deft & gentle touch. They were courteous, competent, professional & personable. Kudos also to Key Moving Services owner Gregory Price who I truly believe puts compassion over profit & people over proceeds. That's really after all what it's all about. Davie R.
