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.

Reviews for Largo movers

We heard nightmares about other moving companies dragging out the move to charge more or damaging items. This wasn’t the case with the guys at Bay Area Moving. We were extremely pleased with this company. The guys were professional and fast. Thanks for helping us move on the hottest day of the year. We would definitely recommend them.

My move with Fl. Sunshine Movers was fantastic! They werebon time, professional and efficient. The three men worked well together, wrapped my fragile items and disassembled/reassembled my furniture quickly. My move was all said and done in two hours. I would recommend this company to anyone and will definitely use them again if I move.

Moving from the second floor of an apartment, can be a pain. But this move went smooth. I have a broken foot and was worried who to hire. I made the right right choice. This was the best move I have had!! Everyone from this company is so respectful. I am very impressed. They didn't break a thing or marks on the walls. Using them again! And telling anyone who moves this is the company!

I am happy to recommend Fast Moves of Tampa Bay. We are retired military and have made many moves, Dave was available and professional in handling the scheduling and details. We had to have the move done on 8/31 to close out our storage unit. That was unfortunately when Hermine was dumping torrential rain on Tampa Bay. It was a miserable day; but the 2 movers worked non-stop and were careful with all of our belongings . They wrapped or covered the furniture and kept everything dry!

I used this company before and they were really nice and helpful. This last time the movers seemed upset to have to move my things and afterwards tried to charge me more than I was quoted.

This is my second time using this company and again they've have been an excellent company to hire. They came to bring me some boxes and checked out what had to be moved, gave me a rate of what was entailed in their service. They confirmed the day before my move and the next day showed up on time. Efficiently the men worked in unison as they complimented each others move to get the job finished. I will use them again when I need the service.

Eric and Damien did a great job. They came 5 minutes before the appointment time. Did the move very fast and careful and the price is very reasonable. And they are very nice. If I could, will give this company 10 stars. Thank you so much Eric and Damien for this stress less moving.

I hired David because he had great reviews on Thumbtack, and he had the cheapest moving company I found when I called around. However, when I asked for him to send a contract of the amount that I would be charged for moving, he stated that the amount we talked about was guaranteed, and I would not be charged more than that. The day of the move went great. The movers were awesome!! That is the only reason why I even gave this company 3 stars. When I was told the amount for the move after everything was done, one of the movers called Dave. Dave told him what we talked about was a rough estimate and not exactly what I would be charged! After the mover got off the phone with Dave, he said Dave has been doing that a lot to customers lately, and sometimes the movers did not even get paid. I felt as though they did a great job so of course I paid the amount plus a tip. Dave never called to check to see if everything went ok afterwards. I never even heard from him again. Honestly, the first time I talked to him on the phone he sounded drunk and not very liable. Like I said, I hired this company because it was the cheapest. If I knew he was going to steal my money, I would have hired someone else. I hate being negative, but that is the truth to my experience. Price we talked about on the phone: $215-$255 What it came out to be: $315 Move took exactly 3 hours. The price we initially settled on. Maybe he was drunk when he stated that price.

The job could've been done a little faster but was reasonable. I don't think they wrapped all of the items that past movers have but I wasn't too worried about them and they did not get damaged. The movers were nice. I was told it would be $25 less if it didn't take 2 hours but was still charged the $25 despite finishing more than 10 minutes early, even with the movers getting somewhat 'lost'. The price was reasonable but do think I should not have been charged the extra $25.
