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.

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.

Reviews for Miami Lakes movers
Scott A.
The organizational skills and moving skills of these movers are really hard to find these days. To crown it all, they were very courteous, respectable and well mannered. I must say that they are truly professional and I think they did some training on the task before the move. This is why I recommend them to anyone looking for a perfect move. They made my move exceptional and a happy one and I am glad I chose them. Pick Up Movers is highly recommended!

Our two movers were extremely quick and efficient. I was skeptical at first because I had never heard of this moving company but they truly are pros. They came fully equipped to transport our furniture and they did it with care. They took the stress out of moving and I can’t recommend them enough!

I was surprised with an add on charge of over $2000. The total move cost over $7000 when I was quoted around $4500. We didn’t pay attention and they left a large lamp and several wall pictures in one corner of the living room. But the 3 movers did a great job packing up my long distance move.

After another company canceled on us just an hour before moving, I reached out to Ted and he quickly accommodated us and found a mover for same day service. Chris (mover) was such a great, humble, and respectful young man and had all intent in the world to make sure our move went smoothly after our unfortunate experience with the previous company. He made us feel at ease. His dedication to his work is admirable and I would totally recommend his and Ted’s service to anyone. I will definitely use them in the future.

Excellent experience all around. Julia responded to my move request within a few hours and answered all of my questions thoroughly. The movers arrived ahead of schedule and got right to work. They were fast while also taking care of all of my stuff. My 1 bed 1 bath apartment move took 4 hours and there were no hidden fees that they surprised you with at the end. Highly recommend these guys!

A rare gem: An honest mover in South Florida. Thor is our superhero! My mom is a single senior citizen, low income, with no access to a car and having to move quickly. I can't help her as I live 2,000 miles away. Her other mover didn't work out so I found Thor on Thumbtack. He replied quickly with a very reasonable quote and answered all of my questions promptly, providing great communication (unlike other movers). He was available on very short notice the very next morning, it was all arranged the night before. He showed up promptly as scheduled (unlike other movers) and charged what he promised, no extra hidden fees (unlike other movers who when they finish the job suddenly want to charge you more than what you had agreed on). Mom said he was very nice and provided excellent service. He even wrote back to me afterwards so I was assured the job was completed. Would definitely recommend him, thank you Thor!

You will regret if you don’t hire them! I contacted a couple of moving companies. Edison is truly the best! He and his team are very professional. They take really good care of all my furnitures and move them with care. They are also thoughtful about my new apartment’s layouts and how to make it easier for me to unpack boxes. The most hardworking people I have ever seen in my life. I would definitely hire them again when I need to move again.

I needed one heavy couch moved from a neighbor’s house to my house a few blocks away. The men were exactly on time and moved the couch door to door in less than 15 minutes. They were well prepared with a blanket to protect the couch and knew exactly how to pick it up, load and unload quickly without any damage. I highly recommend them.

I had many questions regarding moving arrangement since this was my very first move from Florida to Indiana. Frank, the sales representative was very much patient and friendly to answer all sorts of questions. He told us about every detail from the quotation to end of delivery. He put a very good impression by explaining everything detail by detail and assured me that my belongings are in the safe hands.

It was a really great experience! The team was very professional and nice. The three units I moved was heavy and a lot of glass. Each unit was 125 lbs and they moved it easily. Wrapped everything and no chips or damage. I highly recommend them and will let everyone know about them. Very good pricing too. I did not know he was a veteran--which makes it even better! I prefer to work with current or former military! :+)
