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.

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.

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.

I called super last minute—in the middle of the night—to help me with a huge, extremely labor-intensive, eleventh hour move in the middle of the night. No one else was even answering at that time, let alone willing to immediately come out and not only move absolutely everything in the apartment, but also to pack everything. The amount of unpacked things that he was able to package for the last minute move was insane. M

BEST MOVING COMPANY! 🙋🏽‍♀️ If only I had come across this company years ago, they are sooo friendly & on time (which is very odd for Miami) they wrapped everything double & worked super fast & carefully with our items - I’ve had so many companies do our moving & never had I ever a moving company that removed screws, cables from the walls when un mounting a tv from the wall! These guys are on another level with costumer service unfortunately such a costumer service is very odd in Miami! They make moving so much more fun lol 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
