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.

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’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. 

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 do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Steve and his team showed ip early and got to work straight away. They made the move from my storage unit to my new “home” fast, easy, and painless - and were quick to help point out issues from the previous movers’ work that caused some imperfections on my furniture or boxes. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for quality and efficient movers! 🙃

Cory showed up early to move a refrigerator for me; He was very polite and maneuvered it like a professional. I forgot to measure the doorways so a door had to come off, which added to the cost. Nonetheless, the rate was still better than what other movers were charging. Everything arrived unbroken and in working order. I would definitely use him again!

They suck. They promised work but never called to cancel and never showed up. I had to get another contractor to do the job after about 430 or 5.. but just FYI Smoother Movers were more than glad to help

We were so impressed with the attitude of the people as well as their extensive care they took in our furniture we gave each of them (3) a significant tip. We would highly recommend this mover to anybody who wants quality, price and care for their belongings.

Overall, things started great. The initial call that set the tone went really well and extremely professional. We covered the details as best as we could, discussed big items. During my process, we were falling behind for many reasons so I had called to move up a pick up time which again they’re extremely helpful on that very accommodating. When the crew shows up there was a team of three which was fine and they started assessing everything. One of them asked where was the stuff and we want to room by room and he seemed very disappointed that there was furniture he thought the room the boxes. He was very agitated. However then they start working and things are moving along. By the time he loaded everything and move it into the truck into the new place is all chaotic and they unloaded a new place and everything they left and then that’s when everything came out to light. There was stuff missing here at the new house. They didn’t reassemble the bed properly because it was broken and. When I ended up going to the old house they had shoved things into the closet to leave it behind because I assume that they did feel like moving it. So when I thought that everything was great and it that they had done a wonderful job while we were here , it actually turns out that it was not so great and it was some what disappointing.

While I could only choose 3 words to describe Red Carpet Relocators, responsiveness and punctuality also apply. From the first contact on Thumbtack until the follow up text after move, I cannot say enough about this company. The young gentleman who moved furniture from my dad’s house to mine were outstanding. They let me know when they arrived, advised the route they were taking to my home and texted me to let me know they were on their way. Highly recommend this company. Great value and superior workmanship and customer service. Thanks Everyone!

Best move I ever had! From booking, negotiating a price, to the crew who picked up and delivered: all excellent. They were on time, (or called when they were stuck in traffic), worked fast and efficiently loading and unloading, and were very respectful and helpful setting up the bed, mirror on a dresser, and the TV. I would definitely use them again.

We had a job of unloading a small moving POD. I contacted Jason and was scheduled for a specific day and time. Later that same day he told me that he forgot to tell me that he had to ask another person before scheduling the specific time I said ok. I didn’t hear back and had to message him to find out the time that he would do the job. The next day I received a message from Jason saying he had a change of plans and would come out earlier in the day. This was two days before the job. The day before the job I had not heard back so I messaged him. He messaged back and we set the time. The day of the job we waited until 45 minutes after the scheduled time. I finally called and he told me the other guy that was coming too wasn’t there yet to pick him up and he would have to call back to let me know when they would be there. At this point we had to cancel as we set a specific time so that we could go to work after it was completed. I canceled with a text message and did not hear anything like even an apology back. We had to unload the POD ourselves. I definitely do not recommend them.
