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.

Strong movers did a great job moving me. They kept me informed with updates on their arrival time. Did a very good job, not one thing damaged. I hope I never need to move again, but if I do I would hire strong movers.

The two movers that came to my house were fantastic! They were punctual, professional, polite, and so efficient. They made my move so easy and made the entire moving experience way less stressful than I expected it to be! I have recommended them to anybody that will listen and would use them again if I ever needed it.

Dynamic answered my moving request within an hour of submitting it, and scheduled me for the same day. The crew worked quick and carefully to move heavy items. I would certainly use them again.

They showed up on time. They went above an beyond to make my move less stressful. The three movers worked as a team and were extremely pleasant, polite and had a great sense of humor. I would recommend them to anyone that plans on moving. I had requested a 3 to 4 bedroom house size truck and the truck was not this size, however, they made two trips and did not charge us for the travel time (which was 54 mins one way). They were FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!

Top notch professionals from the beginning to the end. They arrived on time and stayed cheerfully until the job was done. I've used many moving companies in the past and unfortunately never had anything good to say until now; I honestly couldn't believe how easy they made this for me. My move was a very big one it took two 26 foot trucks which was expected, what I didn't expect was them bringing a third truck just in case; amazing service!! All furniture was professionally wrapped and moved with care. I will never use another moving company, as long as they are in business they will have mine! Thank you Aaron, Daniel, Justin and Dustin!

They were 1.5 hours late due to being held up on their previous move but I was kept Up to date on their eta. They called BEFORE they were late both times and I didn't have to call once. When they arrived they more than made up for it. My movers were very fast and hard working. When they unloaded they made suggestions on how to arrange the room and even helped us reach the fan which was very High and change the air filter because we were having trouble with the AC. I'm very satisfied with my experience and will be using them for all future moves.

The owner was very nice his name is Tim. I had two couches to be moved upstairs. They were big couches and very heavy. He had to take the couches apart to take them up stairs. He was very nice about it when most others would have charged more or would have said it won't fit and left. He did not he found a way to got it in to the room I wanted and was very careful. I would definitely use him again for any move. Thank you.

They showed up when they said they would and did an amazing job. They were quick and very careful with everything. Very reasonable in their pricing. They didn’t have a problem moving everything from a one story house to a third floor apartment. I would highly recommend them and definitely use their services again.
