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.

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’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. 

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 you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

4 man short move crew. (Better than competitors with 3). Showed up on time. Smart people - experienced. Had to break down lots of furniture and reassemble at destination. Flawless. Polite. Ambitious and far more knowledgeable than typical "movers" .

The movers were punctual and courteous. They did not stand around or goof off like I have experienced with movers in the past. The only thing that I would be weary of is scheduling. When you estimate a time that is what you are charged for, even of they get done much faster. This was not explained to me when I signed up. However, Dynamic Movers addressed my concerns and made adjustments for me without further issue and without argument. They were very professional and I would use them again.

I highly recommend Young’s Moving LLC. Mike responded to every message almost immediately right from the start. His communication skills are excellent, his demeanor is calm and confident. He and his staff were punctual, communicative and very professional. They accomplished all the tasks requested in a timely and impressive fashion. He followed instructions to a ‘T’, and also provided valuable consultation/advice. Next time I need assistance of this sort I would hope to work with Young Moving again.

These guys were professional and very quick. They communicated well, until time to leave. The guys had to wait for the office to call them back so I could pay for it, and that took over 30 minutes. Otherwise, it was a great job and I will use them again if I need movers. Thanks!

Your ad states 2 hour minimum. They state on return mail they have a 3 hour minimum. Nothing about a $50 travel fee looks like a company that has more than a single hidden agenda. I agree you are not transparent nor a fit for us. I own several businesses and appreciate truth. Will move on. Consider this a no deal.

Lenny moved our stuff from Cocoa to Ft Lauderdale, and it was a horrible experience. He brought two men who were very inexperienced - they looked like they were off of school on break, and they spent the majority of their time just sitting around. They showed up around 9 am and finished unloading at the new house at 230am. They don't own their own truck, and didn't wrap our furniture. Our white leather couch was damaged, some furniture was broken, the door frame was badly scratched-in a house that we were renting, and a few of the bricks right outside the front door were broken. Lenny apologized to us afterwards for the unprofessionalism and begged us not to write a review if we weren't going to give him 5 stars because he supports his grandmother and it would hurt his company- which makes sense why he has such good reviews now. I was an officer in the military, I know what honor and hard work is. You won't find it here. Anyways, we are moving again, and I still use thumbtack despite that one bad experience. He quoted me $2900 for a job from Cocoa to Lake Nona, and two other companies quoted me half of that.

I called Lenny in a panic asking if he could come to my home on a moments notice to lift large and heavy furniture and put 16" wooden pedestals under them to help protect them from potential flood water damage. After Hurricane Irma's twelve inches of rainfall coupled with last week's fourteen inches of rainfall has kept my back yard under water. So, I was feeling very stressed worrying if more rainfall would come into my home. Lenny could tell I was stressed out with worry and he and his three man crew drove from Palm Bay to Cocoa on a moments notice to help lift and protect my furniture from the rising flood water. Finding Lenny and his crew was a Godsend! They were courteous, friendly, helpful, and respectful of us and our home. I can honestly say working with the team was the best experience and service I could have ever hoped for. I know you will be glad you hired them for your moving needs.
