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.

Lenny and his helper helped us move and did and excellent job. I had to change the date a couple of times and he worked around our move out schedule. They came in and moved our two bedroom house in 2 hours. I would definitely call him again if I need to move.

Moving and Cruising did a great job moving heavy exercise equipment in my home. They are knowledgeable about how to take apart the equipment and how to put it back together so that it works properly. They were also super careful with my belongings even though they had a limited space to work. I would definitely recommend them if you need movers or help just moving heavy items in the home.

Lenny &his team of Junior, James, and Mike were exceptional in every way !!!! All were polite, handled all our stuff with care,and each knew what they were doing. Great team work and they all worked quickly yet safely. We were really very nervous before arrival because we had such terrible "Nightmare Moves" prior to this, but were soon very relaxed with satisfaction of knowing we had chosen the right, and "BEST" mover ! From before move, during move and at end of move there was always great communication with us regarding the entire plans, price, etc. There were no hidden surprises, nothing was damaged and if we were to relocate again----- there is NO ONE else we would choose but " LennyVanGo". Thank you ALL so much!! Gary & Linda (Palm Bay, Fl.)

They contacted me right after the work request, asked questions on what I was needing. We setup a time for following morning to move washer & dryer into house from the garage. They got here early, looked over everything & then proceeded to move the appliances in without causing any damage to house or appliances.

Lenny was on time and professional- Frank was a life saver! Should you need a heavy mover ( piano - elliptical - huge pieces ) - HE can make it happen!! Ask for Frank if you need heavy lifting !! But should you need padding - or moving blankets - only 1 one was provided - so ask in advance.

Short distance household move of furniture only. The crew tried very hard to accomplish the job within the timeframe quoted. However, that seemed to result in some carelessness with some of my furniture and I ended up with some scratches that could have been avoided if they weren't in such a hurry. Also, I had the perception that at least 1 of the 4 man crew was inexperienced as a mover and didn't take direction well from Lenny. This resulted in a broken globe on a light fixture with glass going everywhere. The other 3 movers were very professional and polite.

Lenny, (the company's owner) was very professional and helpful with my concerns throughout my entire move from Brevard County to Palm Beach County. The actual Movers, Junior and Mikey we're just as professional. They were quick, and you could tell they knew what they were doing. They took care of my property like it was their own. The day went well without hiccups. Immediately after the move... Lenny followed up with me personally to make sure everything went well. you don't find too many businesses like this anymore. You could tell Lenny takes pride in his business. Do yourself a favor... if you want your stuff taken care right, without headaches or worry... hire Lenny Van Go. BTW+ cool catchy name for a moving company, Love it! Harold Peck JR Sunny Florida AUG 18

When I received a quote for services over the phone, he was very nice and the price was right. I told him the moving from location and tried to tell him the move to location was an hour and a half away but he said it didn't matter, just tell the guys where when they arrive. When I told the guys, they made a call and then it was an extra $100. Although I was not surprised and of course I agreed because we didn't have time to find another. The guys were polite, nothing was damaged and they were on time. I would recommend them, but they need to understand all moves may not be local. They still beat the other quote I had gotten.
