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.

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. 

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.

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 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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

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!

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!

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.

I highly recommend Sunbiz! I own several properties and have moved many times, this is definitely the best moving experience ever. Dan & Sergei were incredible they did quality work, they are professional, experienced, skilled with assembling furniture, they worked efficiently & effectively and they showed up on time. It was nice working with them and the Coordinator Kate. She gave me a fair quote, no surprises, no hidden fees, no haggling. If you’re looking for a worry-free experience Sunbiz is the best!

Frank is a LIAR. He said he was going to send great workers and he send people that didn’t speak English nor Spanish. To top it off didn’t even have the decency to fix or open a case for the damages. I had tiles, light fixtures and lots of furniture broken. I was only able to upload 4 images of not I would’ve uploaded a lot more. Frank ignores calls and acts as if he really wants to help when in reality all he wants is your money. Beware of Frank and his “hard working” movers that will leave cigarettes all over your front porch and even walk inside your property smoking. Beyond unacceptable. If you could find a different mover please do and stay away from FRANK.

I contacted OnTheRoadAgain because of the great online reviews. Every time I called Thor answered the phone to answer my questions. My move was scheduled the day I wanted. Ace and Terry showed up on time and did a great professional job. They didn't waste any time! The job was done right and cost effectively. They are to be commended roundly! BRAVO!

Mr. Brown did what he said he would do. He did it with an excellent attitude and a smile. That combination is hard to find. He moved a golf putting platform 16x4, 350lbs 9 miles from one place of business to the another. I was glad the job was finished promptly. I hired him and he did the job the same day.

I have 2 words DREAM TEAM!!!! And not to mention the professionalism. I met one of the owners and from start to finish it was an amazing experience. Truly wish more companies had her level of attention. They arrived early and were FAST. They were able to move everything I needed in half the time I thought they would need. I will certainly be using TD Services again. They have a customer for LIFE!! It’s not easy finding a reliable company- this is one to keep on speed dial!!
