Your burning questions: answered

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Atlantis Delivery was a good choice for movers, we had 3 movers and a truck with not hidden fees. The guys did an amazing job at moving our things, and making sure the furniture was protected. I am glad we went with them!

We had a last minute move as the townhome we were supposed to move into had something happen and we suddenly needed help lifting everything from our moving truck into storage. Diggs Haul helped us short notice and were very quick! They had excellent communication, a friendly team, and good price. There's no way we could've done it without their help. Thank you!

Excellent customer service from beginning to end. Contract was presented prior to scheduling move with prices clearly stated. I was contacted by text confirming each step (contract, payment, appointment) and was given a call the morning of the move 30 minutes prior to arrival. I was the first move of the day and the team was there exactly at 8a and got straight to work. They wrapped every item with blankets and plastic wrap and then unwrapped each item at the final location and put everything exactly where I wanted it. They were extremely careful as I had just had the walls painted and some of the furniture was practically brand new - everything was in perfect condition when they finished. I've already recommended them to my neighbor who is moving in a couple of weeks. Thank you to the entire team for making this move as stress-free as possible.

I would highly recommend Jeff and Richard to anyone needing their services. They were a pleasure to have around and kept the atmosphere upbeat and fun. The moving experience turned out to be a joy. My furniture was carefully wrapped, nothing was damaged, and they even gave suggestions as to where to place items when I couldn't decide -- and their suggestions turned out to be perfect! No time was wasted and the move was completed in record time. I give these movers a 10 out of 10!

The owner was very quick to respond and was able to get us movers last minute the day before our move. Adrian & Richard we’re amazing. Showed up on time. Super nice & professional. Saved mine and my partners lives helping us move everything in and upstairs. Only took an hour and a half for our packed 20 ft truck. They even cleared out a king mattress and box spring for us that we didn’t want. Would definitely recommend.

These guys were fast and like robots. I hired 3 movers because that is the fastest rate and boy did it pay off. They finished moving under my guess of time by an hour and I never saw one of them even take a break. Great hire and I recommend them to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

It has taken me a few days to get my thoughts together to describe this company because I didn't want to respond while angry, but rather construct a post that is informative to anyone considering hiring this moving company to transport your belongings. That said, my experience with American Movers was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE, and I would neither hire them again, nor recommend them to anyone who takes pride in their possessions. The workers were unprofessional, and seemingly unconcerned with handling our belongings with care. The way they piled our things into the storage unit was unthoughtful and unacceptable. If this is indeed a "professional" company, my question would be, "by whose standards?" When you hire a moving company, there are two words you should never have to say, and those words are," be careful." The first time I had to say it was one time too many when spending hard-earned money for professional movers. I'm addition, I could have dented the wall myself for free rather than paying this company to do it. All this to say, American Movers will never again get my business. My wife and I have worked too hard to accumulate the things we have to leave it in the hands of a company who seemingly couldn't care less. I'm sorry to have to write this kind of review, but we were incredibly disappointed with this company. In fact, I think we'll use YELP next time.

This week I put out a bid on Thumbtack to get a table I'd bought off Craigslist moved from the seller's house to my in-laws. I'm moving down to the Orlando area later this month, and the table had to be moved before then. I was in a tight spot. I put out a bid on Thumbtack and another site and received around 10 in short order. For a smaller job - just moving a table and chairs - most places quoted me over $300. Thomas Sankara Moving cut that price in half. I was pretty nervous, given that I'd not hired someone off of here before, but it could not have gone smoother. Right from the start, Quincy was helpful and courteous, assuring me they could and would get the job done, even with a few extra considerations I needed (I asked if they could pay the seller up front, and then my in-laws pay them on the back end). They arrived the next day, promptly, at the seller's home. She said they "could not have been more professional." A half hour later, my mother-in-law phoned me to let me know they'd been so nice and done such a great job that she asked for a business card. I can assure you, I was nervous. The bid was low, and I figured there was a chance I'd made a mistake. I did not. Hire these guys and they'll make sure you get what you need.
