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. 

Reviews for Oviedo movers

They did a great job with our move! Very friendly and moved everything efficiently.

Glenn was a very kind, hard working mover. However, the move needed 2 men ( which we agreed upon) , and the other man never showed. The move took twice as long and at the retirement facility we moved my inlaws to, the staff ended up assisting with the move because they noticed it was only him. I'm guessing that this was not his fault ( the no show), and I found him very conscientious and he worked extremely hard to move it all himself, but it did complicate the move quite a bit.

A1 All Professional Movers did an outstanding job with our move from the Central Florida area to the Augusta, GA area. Working with Brian and Scott Crossley was a pleasure and Scott supervised the move out and into our new home. The movers were very professional and all our furniture and valuables were delivered in their original condition. I will refer their moving services to all of my friends and family when the need arises and highly recommend anyone that is in the process of moving to give them a call to talk to Scott or Brian for a quote.

I moved from the Orlando area to south Florida and my two movers were on time, wrapped all of my things, and we're very careful with everything. They were also very professional and courteous. It was a long rainy day for them but they continued their professionalism and attention to detail until the job was done. I would definitely recommend Eko Movers and use them again.

Movers were good. The company itself has very poor communication. Phil was not fair after changing my move date even when trying to book services a month prior to the move date. They called me the day before changing my move date. I used the same company less than a year prior and they charged me less than half of the rate they charged me the second time with the same amount of belongings. It was really discouraging as a return customer to experience this and feel ripped off. The mover Brian was good. The older one didn’t really do much except talk about and waste time. Very disappointed in the lack of accommodation and accountability this company has.

Deliver per their estimate! The Flat Rate estimate provided by the estimater was $1654.57 and he stated it would take Two trucks and Two crews. When the mover arrived with one truck and three men they immediately said the price would have to go up because we had more boxes than the estimate predicted.. Also I would have to pay for a TV box although the estimater said one would not be needed for the 43" TV in the Master bedroom. The final bill provided at the end of the move at 10:00 PM was $2299.00. The next day I had to return to the old house to get the things the mover did not move to the new house because the truck was too full only to find significant damage to the upstairs wood floor, the wood steps down the stairs and scrapes and holes punched in the stairwell walls. The mover repaired the drywall but only offered $500 toward the damage to the floors and steps or I could file with their insurance if I paid a $500 deductable. The move took place on May 20 and the closing on the old house was scheduled for 28 May. I made an agreement with the buyers of the old house to get a independant estimate for the floor and step damage which came in at $1050 and paid them directly in order to protect the closing on the old house. Between their Bait and Switch pricing and the poor response to repair the damage they caused I would not recommend Big Man Movers to anyone.
