Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Moving is always stressful, but Whali and his team mates Dimitri and Dimitri were fantastic and made the move totally stress free. Very nice professional guys. When i need movers again I will definitely choose Pick Up Movers and will ask for the same team.

I had an excellent experience with pick up movers. We were sent two movers and were about to finish the move in 6 hours. This was exactly the amount of time I was quoted over the phone. I was in contact with Pierre to set up the move. I told him all of my inventory and he was able to predict exactly what I needed and how much it would cost to the T. There were no last minute fees or surprises. They were fully transparent and honest. The movers were very patient as there were many obstacles that were thrown at us the day of the move (the elevator key wasn't given to us on time from our association, the place we were moving into did not allow reservations for the elevator and everyone had to share it, they gave us a tight deadline before they were going to shut off the service elevator). It was a mess! Somehow the movers found a way to overcome all of these obstacles and still get our move done. They were extremely efficient and I could not have asked for better movers. Tha k you Pick Up Movers!

I’ve worked with moving companies in the past and SunBiz goes above and beyond any other moving companies in Miami. They were very professional and came prepared. I had a small office move - the guys were on time, handled my items and boxes with care, loaded and unloaded the truck quickly and efficiently. I will refer all my friends. High quality work, with a truck and very reasonable prices. Will hire again! Thank you SunBiz movers, you’ve made my moving very easy.

Pick Up Movers did a great job with my move! Pierre was very professional and courteous as well as very accessible. The company went above and beyond in order to accommodate me and my family. We had to reschedule our move a few times due to the fact that my wife is pregnant and she has a broken leg which made moving tough. Despite the difficult circumstances, Pick Up Movers worked with us and made our move smooth. Again I want to thank Pierre and all of the workmen who helped us as they made our transition into our new home easy! Important to note: NO HIDDEN FEES! Highly recommended!

We had moved most of our boxes and small items ourselves and just had Pick Up Movers take the big furniture. This was the best way to do business-- they arrived early, had no trouble moving our furniture. Not a thing was broken. They were fast and careful. Somehow, the couch it took us an hour to get up to our apartment years ago was only a ten-minute project for them... their response was, "We know what we're doing!" Very funny. Truly, it was a good deal and I recommend moving with this company.

The coordination and execution were outstanding. Dispatch confirmed with me the day before my move, and the driver called in the morning to give me his estimated arrival time. They movers were fast but very careful - excellent work.

I had requested 3 men and only 2 came. The men were also somewhat distracted during the move and talking to other people. I had three other men there to help and my friends did a lot of the moving.

Unfortunately I would not recommend Shark movers for anyone doing high rise condo moves that require a strict schedule (9a-5p) and elevator usage. We were moving from a building off of 71st street to another building few blocks away off of 67th street and it was the longest process ever - didn’t wrap up until about 7pm and cost just under $1000. I realize elevators move slow, but the pace at which they were moving to load boxes on the handtrucks and go to the elevators was slow, there seemeed to be no sense of urgency at all. The move was scheduled to start a 9am and it wasn’t until nearly 3pm that we headed to the new apartment to start unloading. But get this...they still didn’t even have all of our belongings loaded into the truck. The next day, my husband and I had to load our remaining items in our 2 cars to complete the move. Once at the new place, everything needed to be finished by 5 pm per building rules but we had to request an extension twice and thankfully the building allowed. In addition to being frustrated about the amount of time it took, in our original quote we were told via thumbtack quote and via text that all packing materials would be included yet at the end of the move they charged us for putting plastic wrap around some of our furniture. They would not budge on this even though we complained and showed proof. This is very shady and dishonest. They also broke my large standing floor mirror! Stay away from Shark movers unless you have a simple door to door move without time constraints and elevators, but be prepared for slow service just so they can make more $.

" I just wanted to leave a quick review and thank Southwest for the great job they did with my move. I will keep it short and sweet, my sales rep Mandy was amazing; She explained everything and was very responsive , She gave me a great price and set up my pick up date. She was also very accommodating when I had to change the list of items and the move date. The movers came on time for the pick up as well as the delivery, there were no hidden costs, no damages done to my belongings or missing items. The guys were also very polite and friendly. Couldn't ask for a better move!
