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.

Phenomenal experience! I’ve moved A LOT and Derrick and Rod made this move my easiest one yet! They’re Tetris skills we’re unmatched when it comes to maximizing space in the moving truck, they handled everything with exceptional care and were faster than expected! Then, they went WAAAYY above and beyond not only packing up the moving truck from my storage unit in Daytona, but then offered to unpack it at my new home in Clearwater THE SAME DAY! And it gets even better - they assembled my king bed, set up the furniture centered on walls and got the entire truck unloaded with everything in the house in record time! THEN… they helped me to park the moving truck and fix the hitch on the back! Super super amazing moving team! Definitely recommending and keeping their info for future moves!

I hired Pick Up Movers for my move last month. They were just amazing. Most of the times when you hire a moving company, promises are never kept. Not in the case with this company though. When I called them for a quote, they seemed very sincere and gave me a very reasonable quote. Their crew arrived very much on time on the moving day. All four men were very sincere and skilled. I have a lot of stuffs but they didn’t take a long time to finish packing everything. They were very careful while carrying big pieces of furniture out of my house and loading them to the truck. All my belongings had to travel a long way and so I was quite worried how they were going to cope with the journey. Thankfully, all my stuffs traveled safely and the delivery was made right on the scheduled date.

The guys were very professional and helpful to say the least. They took very good care of my belongings and loaded everything very meticulously. I would highly recommend this company to all looking for help moving. Thanks again!

This is the company you need to hire!! One of the owners, Holly was always available to speak to us immediately via phone or Thumbtack. She was friendly and followed up. All American Muscle Movers provided our family with EXCELLENT service at a great price. They had a very clean, organized truck and moving equipment. They worked with a smile and efficiency. They even squeezed their truck down a windy dirt road to get to our destination and they never complained once. I cannot convey to you how awesome they truly are, especially in this modern world of unreliable, overpriced scam artists. AAMM is a rare blessing. A family owned business with integrity.

Arrived on time as scheduled. We did have some damage in the move, but Joshua had it repaired and returned to us the same day. Both Joshua and his helper Kyle were very courteous and did a fine job for us. We would use them again if the need arose and we would recommend them.

After receiving this quote on Thumbtack I called and spoke with Jose. Although the quote clearly states (or so I thought) wants to be expected, Jose had much number crunching to do after multiple questions about my move. He finally provided me with a total of $422.00 for a 2.5hr move. When I questioned the amount I was told that the truck, mileage and gas to get to me and do the job, the expenditure of sending three pros to me, having two stops, along with all the things they provide with the moving service was the reason. Jose shared that the quote from Thumbtack was JUST an estimate. When I seemed hesitant to book Jose offered me a $23 off deal and said he could go as low as $399. While I respect his explanation and appreciate his offer to bring the price down a bit, it just didn’t work for me. I booked with another company who’s quote matched exactly what they sent to my inbox when I spoke to them on the phone. I was able to get moved out of my place in 2 hrs for $275 and the company that moved me also had to travel from Orlando to reach me in South Daytona. If Thumbtack is a place for no hassle, up front info so services can be fulfilled, it would be nice if ALL the information (like the hidden “no hidden” fees) can be shared upon initial contact. PS...I’ve seen the reviews and the often rude replies Dynamic makes when they receive a not so favorable review. I’m here to tell whomever checks these reviews from Dynamic that you can save it. I said what I said! Don’t advertise no hidden fees upon arrival and justify it by adding the hidden fees before arrival. If you say you don’t charge for something, don’t try to sneak the charge in some other way! Perhaps stating in your quote to potential customers that “This is JUST an estimate” or listing all the additional things I was told I’d be paying for upfront would help people determine whether they want to book with you all before even making a phone call. A quote and an estimate are NOT the same thing. 🤷🏾‍♀️

Come look at the job so you bring a big enough truck, paying by the hour when two trips needed because you didn’t look at the job cost me DOUBLE. Don’t have co workers who smell like pot, what stoner do you know that’s motivated to do physical job of moving? Don’t care if people want to smoke pot, just not on my dime! We are not young people, and having to help move heavy items was ridiculous- but, after what was estimated by the person who booked the job being 6-8 hours turning into 12.5, we had no choice. You left a flat screen TV in elevator and damaged (I pointed out to you) a wall taking a chunk out that no one told me about when they did it… You asked me to give you a review, well, this is as nice of as you’ll get, very un happy and unprofessional!

First thing is he changed the price from 70$ to 120$. Second things is he took several breaks and still had the clock running....3rd things it took 4hrs and only should have been 2 to 2.5 at the max. It was a one bedroom, couch, 3 tables and 6 totes! On top of that he damaged my couch, headboard and night stand! He's no returning my calls or text. Oh yeah....moved from the 3rd floor to 1st with an elevator in the same building. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUY!!! TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE

I am delighted I found this amazing company. The price.. after receiving a price of DOUBLE and a 3 week wait I thought I was in trouble. Then I found Red Carpet Relocations. Their work was excellent, fast, careful and professional. I lived on the 16th floor and was never told an elevator inspection was happening that day. The men were wonderful. They continued to work and wrap all the furniture and when the elevator was free quickly made trips to the truck to make up for time. All with a smile. Put them on your list when looking for a mover you won't be sorry. Thanks again your company was great !!
