Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do movers cost in Miami?

The best Miami moving companies cost approximately $70 to $90 per hour. Keep in mind these are estimated costs that can change at any time, and the price you’ll pay will depend on a number of things. For example, your cost might be lower (or higher) if you’re moving to another area within Miami, if you require special services (such as packing and storage) or if you’re moving a small load.  

How much does it cost to move across the country from Miami?

Expect the cost of moving across the country from Miami to be a few thousand dollars. However, the total cost of your move may depend on many factors, including the exact distance, the size of your home or the weight of your load.

If the moving company you choose sets its rates based on the distance of your move, moving from Miami to Chicago or to New York will likely have similar costs because of the distance to both cities. Meanwhile, moving from Miami to Los Angeles will probably cost you more. If you rent your own truck, your long-distance move could cost less.

Contact professional long-distance movers in Miami to find out how much your cross-country move will cost.

How do I choose the best moving company in Miami?

Compare the best movers Miami has to offer by reading company reviews and comparing different types of moving services. When contacting movers, ask questions about their services, prices and liability. Miami movers are required to assume basic liability and must make it clear that they are only responsible for only $0.60 per pound per article, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Where can I rent a moving truck in Miami?

To rent a moving truck in Miami, search for availability at moving truck rental companies in your area. These companies often have a large selection and a good chance of availability for short-notice moves. However, keep in mind that you might have a need for movers who can help you load and unload your belongings. If that’s the case, hiring a reputable Miami moving company could be the best option. Oftentimes, movers provide a truck, labor and additional services to help make your move less stressful.

Where can I get moving boxes in Miami?

There are a number of different places to find free moving boxes in Miami. Try local grocery, department, book and liquor stores, as these establishments frequently move through boxes. Recycling centers often have piles of them available. To buy brand-new, high-quality boxes -- as well as moving supplies like packing tape and moving blankets -- visit your local hardware store. Or, ask moving companies in Miami if they offer packing supplies and moving boxes as part of their services. 

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.

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.

I hired these guys for a short move and they were absolutely fantastic! Their quote was spot on, the movers were very capable and everything was very systematic. The best part about this move was the fact that none of my belongings was broken or damaged at the end of the move. It was such a comfortable move.

I highly recommend hiring Up and Up Movers. They were very reliable, affordable and had a great attitude. I definitely will recommend them to family, friends and neighbors. We had an awful experience with Flatrate movers and were so worried about our new move. Even though it was just a few items this time that were too heavy and needed to be moved by professional movers, those items are dear to us and Up and Up movers truly cared for our belongings. Kudos!!👍🏻
