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.

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 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.

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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

Kevin and his team really did a great job with my move. I’ve moved 5x in the past five years, and Kevin by far did the best job and at an excellent price! I’m planning to hire him again for my family’s next move! They were also very careful with our stuff. Other movers were more expensive and they banged up furniture in previous moves. Kevin was professional and handled our items with care! Thanks

Was left in a bind in that I needed to move broken bedroom furniture I received from a large store here in Port Richey into my garage on a Sunday for new furniture coming on Monday . Swift Moves answered my request late on Saturday and was able to arrange 3 men to come and dissemble and move everything plus also move my new mattresses into the bedrooms so I am ready for my delivery of my new furniture. Though I didn’t need a move from one place to another with the quick response and arrangement and to be able to accommodate my need I will definitely use their service in the future for any move I make. Thank you Swift Moves I appreciate your services!

I needed a mover to move a small load from one location to another. The tricky part was that I was in another state trying to coordinate between two separate parties on the other end. Top Notch was incredibly responsive, very professional and worked incredibly well with both parties on the other end. I would highly recommend Top Notch for your moving job!

I have genuinely never been more impressed! They were all such lovely humans that came in and really helped us when we needed it. They were careful with our stuff, SUPER quick at getting everything into the truck, and truly made a huge difference for our move. I will recommend them over and over again to any friends that are moving and if we move again in the future, I will definitely be back! Couldn't be happier!

I highly recommend Ronal. He is very responsive, trustworthy and communicates well. Very easy to work with and very good price. Prior to Ronal, I had 2 movers who say they will move the Furnitures and drop out without any communication.

First time hiring movers, amazing service! Very affordable pricing and excellent communication. From the time they arrived til the time they were finished, they literally were running and hoping up steps 2 at a time. Never once did they slow down or complain! Very kind and courteous, all furniture was wrapped with a blanket and shrink wrapped. This moving company is the absolute real deal. A+++

Beware of this company!, It's not only the $95 an hour that they will charge, but after they get done they will ask you to pay the hours plus additional $95 for travel fee (to cover their gas and travel time from and to your pickup, they said they sent me an email with this information before they come for the appointment, I checked my email several times but I couldn't find it. 4 hours costed me $475, they moved my furniture in a 4 miles distance. Other than that and for honesty the movers were ok.

Mohammed and Abraham were very kind and professional with their service. They helped my family and I moved out from old apartment into new place. I asked them to be extra gentle with my new couch and they were. I will recommend their service to anyone. They were also on time. Their price was fair in my opinion. Thank you, guys!

Kevin and Dave were great in getting our last minute purchase from the store, delivering it to our home, and setting it up. Their charge was reasonable and they were the first people to give us a quote over the internet, and in a very prompt amount of time. Have nothing negative to say and we will use them again if we have any moving needs.

I am extremely happy with the quality of care that went into moving my large leather couch to it's new home. I also appreciated how quickly they responded to my request showed up on time. Dabo actually wrapped everything twice and padded it. Dabo was very professional and very friendly. We definitely will be using TruckLoad Tampabay again!

Listen! Jeremy and his team didn’t come to play! They were easy to work with in setting up a time. And even with the rain, they hustled like it’s nobody’s business! Very impressed and they wasted no time. I never seen movers get the job done right, and in rapid timing. Plus, I appreciate the flat rate! Did I mention it was all in the rain!? Ok. Now y’all know. Thank you guys!

Charles was the ultimate professional. We needed to move my Mother’s belongings out of her ALF apartment on short notice. We contacted Charles on Friday night and he worked us into his schedule for Saturday afternoon. It was a very trying time for us and his reliability and compassion for our situation went above and beyond. He kept in contact with us throughout the day so we could coordinate what time he would be available to meet us at the apartment later that day. He had numerous other appointments on Saturday and we were so grateful that he worked us in. The cost was very reasonable and his work ethic was impeccable. We would definitely call him again and highly recommend his services. Thank you again Charles.
