Your burning questions: answered

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.

Florida Smart Movers are A+ movers! They went to work at the get go and didn't stop until the work was done. They wrapped the furniture well and worked very efficiently and effectively. Glad to have hired them for my micro move!

This was the worst experience I have ever had with movers. When you're dealing with all the stress of moving out, having someone cancel on you with 2 hours of anticipation over text was the most unprofessional and pathetic excuse for a moving company. Horrible!

I contacted Apika USA Movers and spoke to Anastasia. She took an inventory on the phone and gave me a quote. She then scheduled a visit to document the items and confirmed the price. She was professional and very nice to work with. The movers came 20 min early and Alex introduced himself and they went to work, wrapping everything in blankets and carrying it out the door. Total professionals and removed the stress from moving. The next time we move there is only one moving company I will call. Apika...the best.

Crosstown Moving handled a small move for me today. James and his co-worker responded immediately, gave me a great price quote, picked up and moved the item safely and FAST. Miami is full of unprofessional people and companies. Crosstown, however, was the BEST company o have ever used in this city. Their truck is beautiful and available for small or large moves. I HIGHLY recommend Crosstown.

J & A Ultimate moving service are by far the best movers I ever hired. I had to work on the day of move. I have a wife who is 8months pregnant and she said they where the most professional, hard working, efficient company she has ever worked with. We had a issue with getting the couches in and out of the apartments. They took the doors of the hinges and put them back, free of charge. If there was a problem they had a solution for the issue. Affordable, Efficient, Reliable. For any moving needs don't waste your time with other companies. J & A Ultimate moving is the only company you will need.

I had a small move and the 2 gentlemen that came got right to it. Secured my TVs and stacked the boxes great. I really really appreciate their low prices!! Already told them that I will need to use their service in another week or so since this was a temporary move.

Great experience! I love a company that does what they say they are going to do. Corey and Alex arrived early and did a great job! They were total professionals and worked quickly and carefully - and the price was great! We will definitely be using Drop A Truck again! As a matter of fact, we're moving my dad from Jupiter to Boca in the next few weeks and will be using them for that move. Highly recommend!

Crosstown Moving is phenomenal. They take great care of your furniture and are very careful. Furniture is wrapped with blankets and sealed. They will disassemble furniture and reassemble for you. They are punctual, professional and polite they get the job done. I highly recommend them!

They were dishonest. Quoted me $375 For moving a one bedroom apt 1/8th mile away. They took forever, wrapped soft mattresses in bubble wrap, and then tried to hold my TV ransom for about $600. Since I didn't trust them with my credit card, I had to go to a nearby bank to get the remaining price in cash. I had a screaming match with "Frank" on the phone after he reneged on the global deal and started threatening legal action. Luckily I'm a lawyer and he's just a dishonest crook. You can use my name.

Hired them for a moving job on 11/8. Quoted 75/hr for 2 men. They sent me 1 man and a very inexperienced teenager who stood around most of the time and only took direction from the other guy (who was really great). So the job ended up taking way more time cause I had 1 1/2 men. I still have a bed and a table that wasnt put together cause they were taking too long. Teenager who said he was tired said he normally doesn't work there and just started helping out. What got me upset was when I called the customer service to explain to them my frustration the girl on the phone told me I'm upset cause I didnt want to pay and I'm on a discounted rate, normal rate is $90 per hr. (So why send a quote for $75?) I didnt ask for a discounted rate. I have no problem in paying. The problem I have is that sent me an experience teenager to do a mans job. She was very rude. I will never use or recommend this company.
