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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Customer service oriented - I had to change my time of move and they were courteous and worked with my schedule. Staff who actually moved my furniture were professional, careful and went above and beyond to help me. I would recommend Helping Hand Moving Services and their price was the best of all.

Professional Punctual Courteous Stress free By far the best experience I’ve ever had with a mover. Always in communication, quick to respond, and his work ethic is amazing! The price was reasonable. No hidden fees...no BS. I will keep him in mind for the next time I move. I see no other reason to go any where else for a local move.

I’m very happy with the service I got from Diggs Haul. Chaz went out of his way to come by my house and move my treadmill from the living room to the garage. Originally he had a big job in my area and said he would swing by and do this quick job for me. But then even though his schedule changed for his big job he still took the time to drive 30 or 40 miles just for my quick treadmill move. This was really important to me because I have guests coming and I wanted that treadmill out-of-the-way. I so very much appreciated that he did not cancel my little job even though it would’ve been more convenient for him to do so. A true professional. Then he helped us position the rug and coffee table and move the sofa. His price was more than fair and I will definitely be calling Diggs Haul again.

***BEWARE*** of red flags with this company! Their profile & customer reviews looked great, & option of a 3-guy team for “$99hr all inclusive” was perfect for us, so we wanted to book them 2hrs for our move, but then things quickly changed & red flags went up! **First the guy sent message thru Thumbtack that said he couldn’t reach us bc we weren’t answering either of 2 phones, which neither showed missed call!? We called him back at the # posted on their profile, but he replied thru Thumbtack he never got our message??, & said the # on the company profile was not the right one for us to reach him!?? He gave us a different # to reach him. (???) **So called him at new # he gave, & he tried to add over $100 to the job price!!, bc some BS about it’s bc of “his expenses to do job”??... like travel, moving blankets, plastic wrap, etc!, but that’s all necessary for a safe & proper move, plus their company profile even specifically states ALL of those items are provided by them, & are ALL “included in advertised job price”!! When we declined the job w him “JOSE”, he started saying he could lower his price if needed?, but no thanks “JOSE”, you’re just too shady to trust!! **Third, it’s quite ironic that not only does the company profile actually advertise “all included”, but even makes a point to specify “no hidden fees /surprises like others”!!?? LOL So, needless to say, it was all definitely very suspicious & unprofessional!! Hopefully nobody will have the same experience, &or worse, get charged w extra fees added to job price after their stuff is already loaded, & then told must pay extra to the quote advertised, price agreed on, & for items included!! Companies & deals like this make Thumbtack look questionable for their pros, to anyone who’s never used a vendor thru them! FYI, I’ve had good experiences with Thumbtack pros, so this is my first negative experience, & felt it needed to be shared, to warn others.
