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.

Great move! Polite movers and quick and efficient!

I was extremely impressed with At Your Service Professional Movers. The movers were polite and efficient. They worked with me on the morning of the move changing plans of where my belongings would be moved without any complaints. They moved a baby grand perfectly. They made two stops to place my belongings in two different locations, again without negativity or complaints. They were very hard working and did not procrastinate whatsoever. They handled a difficult move with ease and without complications. I highly recommend them. I will definitely use them again for any future moves. Thank you, Professional Movers for a job ell done!!

Lenny and his 3 associates packed up my 6 room 2 bathroom home and moved from one town to the next town. His movers were great and when they moved us into our new home everything was perfect. I would recommend this moving company.

Let's Move LLC moved my things expeditiously and safely, and their movers were very polite and congenial. My only gripe was that they showed up two hours late because a prior move went long. Otherwise, a stellar job. I'd have no problem recommending them to others.

The mover's arrived and quickly moved the boxes and furniture up to my 3rd floor apartment in under 2 hours. If moving help required at two locations would need 4-5 hours and some break time, but were perfect for my job.

I hired Lenny to move me from Melbourne to Brooksville. Even with us having to break the move up into 2 days, they did a fantastic job. Very professional and very careful. They made sure that nothing was broken, scratched, or missing. We also had to put some things in storage and they willing helped with that as well, which was great for me and saved me a lot of work. They will definitely be the mover I use again if I need to move again and I'll definitely be recommending them to anyone I know that is moving.

I was very happy with the service provided by Lenny's moving service. His guys were able to come in and move me quickly and efficiently. The price was fair with no hidden fees most of the moving companies use. I highly recommend them and will use them in the future if needed.

Everything about my experience with Let’s Move was amazing. I called them last minute and explained my moving needs. Quincy quickly responded and gathered my information then gave me a quote that was a lot better than the others I received. I gave them my address and time to arrive. They showed up 10minutes early and worked faster than I thought possible. The entire crew was very funny, friendly, & kind. If anyone even mentions moving I will tell them they have to use Let’s Move LLC. I will never hire another mover again. Thank you Let’s Move!!!!!

Lenny and his crew are wonderfully courteous and their experience and professionalism make them an absolute pleasure to work with. This is my second time hiring Lenny; the first time was to unload a 10' moving truck back in 2016. This time it was to load a 10' moving truck. They moved my belongings with care and also organized the truck thoughtfully so that I wouldn't have the risk of items tipping or shifting during the long move ahead. When my parents are ready for their larger scale move later this year, we already know Lenny will be our first choice.

The movers were great - very hard working and careful with our furniture. Firehawk Moving, on the other hand, was difficult to deal with. I called the day prior to our move to confirm. On the day of, they sent the movers at the wrong time (2 hours early - we hadn't arrived with the truck yet). Once we arrived with the truck, I tried to contact Firehawk several times to find out where the movers were. Multiple calls and texts to Firehawk went unanswered. After almost no response for a couple of hours, I began frantically looking for someone else to unload the truck. Finally the movers showed up and all was well. They definitely need to improve their administration and customer support.

I wanted to wait a couple of months before leaving a review and feedback on this move. This was a large move with a log of detail and heft to it. 1. Communication - 5 stars. Lenny was always available. 2. Actual move (part 1 whole house part 2 piano) - 3 stars. The whole house move was long work and they were extremely careful with the furniture. Victor, Lenny's right hand mover, is top notch in his ability to move furniture. A second portion of the move involved a grand piano and was the reason we chose Lenny. This was difficult and cause my wife and I much heartache and stress. Ultimately it was moved but required purchasing a $500 apparatus and destroying a 6x3 foot section of a balcony. The guarantee was that the balcony would be back the way it was. This is not the case. They were not equipped to put the piano back together and we had to hire a professional piano technician to put the pieces back. 3. Business Practices - 0-1 star. We negotiated a fixed rate for the move that Lenny suggested and I thought was fair. Secondly we negotiated a price for the piano move that was fair. At the beginning of the 2nd morning, Lenny requested tips for his employees and asked if there was anything else I could do, price-wise. This puts a customer in a very hard place and does not endear good feelings. This was totally uncool. A second and possibly more troubling issue was multiple requests for payment in cash. I had to make multiple trips to bank tellers to withdraw large sums of cash and this reeks of something less than professional. The piano move, originally brokered by Lenny, was handed off midstream due to a business fall-out behind the scenes. The piano move turned into a nightmare resulting in much damaged property, additional costs for steel lifting devices, and remains unsatisfactory to this day. Our wall is poorly textured and we got to the point of 'just being done.' We have had multiple cross country moves and this was our first local move. This was a large, 4 bedroom type move and required a lot of finesse, detail, and knowledge of the moving process. I think that Victor (Lenny's right hand man) has great skill, vision, and communication for the move itself. Understanding the scope and details of a large move seemed beyond them. In conclusion. I wound up tipping the workers and this was not due to being asked. Lenny communicates very well via phone and is always available. Victor is top-notch mover. The details will get you and professionalism is utmost.

This was my first big move and first time hiring movers. Hiring Lenny & his crew made my move extremely smooth and stress-free. Lenny arrived right on time (even a few minutes early!) and with an extra man to help. My in-home estimate was spot on. Lenny VanGo exceeded my expectations!

Overall, the move went fine. It took three hours and 30 minutes to move the furniture of a two bedroom second floor apartment and two fish tanks (one 33 gal and one 45 gal tank). Theoretically, there are 4 men, but practically, there were three men working and the owner (Lenny) helped half the time and supervised the other half due to a chronic health conditions I was made aware of the day of the move. Additionally, the apartment had stairs, which affected the owner's performance due to his smoking habits. To help move the process along, I stepped in and helped move several items. Ideally, I would have preferred to have all four men handle everything without me having to assist in the move. One of my main reasons to hire a moving company was to have them move the two tanks. When Lenny went to my apartment to discuss the move, we agreed on how the tanks would be moved. The day of the move, one of his men, Paul, was in disagreement with the way I wanted the fish transported. Better communication between Lenny and his staff regarding the fish tanks would have led the day to a better start. Most of the times I made a request to Paul, he had an objection; however, he was more compliant towards the end of the move. There were a few times I walked to the truck while Josh and Jovan were working in the apartment and the other two men were taking a bit long in the truck. Josh and Jovan were quick and made good use of time. Their customer service skills were great. They tried to satisfy any request I had. Honestly, I think the move would have gone smoother and faster with just Josh, Jovan, my boyfriend, and me.

Lenny and his two man team were on time and moved me into my new home. They took special care to ensure that my furniture was not damaged. My move was difficult because I have large bulky furniture. Nothing went wrong with the move but I think if he had come to see what needed to be moved prior to that date he may have brought one additional person. But they did an excellent job and his crew was excellent.!

Lenny and his three employees moved me from a third floor apartment to a house. They were very efficient and did an excellent job assembling all of my furniture. The crew made sure they moved everything where I asked and were all very courteous. They also didn't damage anything! I will definitely use them for my next move.

It was a great move. I would recommend that you wrap table legs and be able to put tables, etc. together yourself. You will save time. All in all a smooth move. I would use them again!
