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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

We moved from Clearwater to Hudson in December and utilized services of Men on The Move. I can tell you that this was the best decision ever. We reached out to this vendor early in 2021 when we started building our home to arrange for services. However, our closing date kept being moved back. Mandela worked with us without hesitation and moved our dates several times and assured me they he and his team would be available when needed. And guess what…they were when we finally closed!!! The team arrived on time YTD morning of our move and emptied our old apartment and moved us into our new home in less time than originally budgeted. They worked from start to finish and placed all items in the appropriate areas according to my tags. This was a first in the many past moved that I have had. The team was careful in handling our items and worked non-stop from beginning to end. They interacted with my family in a very professional and courteous manner and worked from time of arrival to the very end. If you are looking for a reasonable, professional team of movers look no further Men on The Move is your answer. I would definitely hire them again for other moving needs and will recommend them to friends and family who may need moving services in the future.

I had a few issues with the movers but didn’t speak up about them at the time because I was overwhelmed with the move in general. However they got the job done eventually, and I felt better once they left.

Happy Moving made my move seamless from beginning to end. I couldn’t rave enough at how great these guys were. Messaged me right up until moving day and showed up as promised and came properly equipped. They used cloths on my furniture and even made extra trips for boxes I was going to pack in my car. I honestly felt bad I wasn’t doing anything. Perfect name for this company since they truly helped me move with professionalism, politeness and a smile 🙂 Highly recommend!

Communication was excellent at all stages. Movers were prompt, efficient and strong. To be honest, I had a little doubt that they had enough room for everything. But, by golly, everything got there intact and fast. I was going to use another, also excellent mover, but could not use them due to scheduling issues. I reached out to Happy 4:30 on Friday, for a move on Monday morning. Everything was done. Thanks for quick response and avalability.

I am providing a 5 star review as the service provided by the Company was overall very good. They moved all the things into my parents home in a quality manner and worked quickly. A couple things did not go according to plan, they were supposed to come Saturday and ended up coming Sunday b/c another move postponed them. Luckily for us it did not have a big impact with all the other moving parts and the communication was good and Josh did call to apologize. When they did arrive on Sunday there seemed to be some confusion on what needed to be moved, but when I showed them the quote they saw that everything had been written down and from there things went smoothly. I think maybe the communication from Josh to the movers was possibly lacking, I'm not sure why they were surprised to be moving a Washer/dryer and some shelves but they did it without any complaints after I showed them the quote. At the end of the day they did a good job so I would hire them again. They were also reasonably priced.

Absolutely satisfied with Men on the Move! A little more pricey but well worth it and willing to do less than minimum 2 hrs that they and most others require. Quick to respond, timely and well worth hiring Men on the Move. And I sent out last minute late requests for help for a few items and they responded at 10p night before. WOW! Please make them your go to mover whether little or large. Hard workers and personable. Definitely 5*!
