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.

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. 

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.

Spoke with the owner and was very impressed and hired him for the move. Spoke with him last week to set up move date and was advised that I would have a call that evening to set date. No call. Left a message at the office this morning and still no return call. On a positive note at least I'm not getting blown off on the day of the move.

Very professional yet personable from the beginning phone call. Brian arrived on time and had an excellent partner helping him. I had a more difficult move with many boxes of business records filing cabinets and office furniture from my home office. But, they worked through the whole day diligently, tirelessly, and efficiently, handling everything with care. I would call Graceful Moving with any moving need I have and highly recommend them. Along with their efficiency, their personal, caring and thoughtfulness with my disabled husband made a difficult experience much easier. Thank you Brian and Kenny!! May God continue to bless you. - Sandee E.

When agreeing to a heavy furniture moving job, be prepared with help and the right equipment and not bringing you and your 9 year old son. It was way too much for 1 person.

Cory was so great, I’m glad he came through for me! He arrived at the location early, broke down my bed frame and moved my heavy furniture quickly and with ease. I’m glad it wasn’t an all day process and it was headache free. He was respectful and professional. I’ve recommended Cory to my mother and I would be happy to work with him in the future.

I posted that I needed someone to unload our moving truck asap. It was 5 p.m. Thanksgiving eve and I didn't expect to hear from anyone until the day after Thanksgiving. Brian called, I hired him because he said his team would unload for us THAT NIGHT! By 9 p.m., the job was finished and they did a great job! I would highly recommend Brian.

Brian is the perfect person to call to get the job done! He is the only mover who was able/willing to work with an undetermined schedule. We had two PODS that we needed unloaded. We could not give him a time of day until the day before each was delivered. I realize this is not a negative comment about those who could not work with us, but it's all we had. Once I was notified what time frame (and that's a three-hour window) the PODS would be delivered, I let Brian know. Once I got the call from the PODS driver, I let Brian know. Only one PODS could be delivered at a time. He worked with us, took the stress out of having the containers going in and out, did an excellent job of moving our items without any damages, and was courteous, respectful, hard working, etc. etc. You really need to call him and give him a chance to prove everything I am saying. You won't be disappointed!!!

Called him late in the night to schedule pick up for the next day from Palm Coast to Ponce Inlet. 5 pieces of very expensive, heavy bedroom furniture. He was good in communication and delivered our furniture the following evening, assembled and through it all remained so polite and professional. His charges considering it was the end of year 2020 was a welcomed surprise. Wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend his services to anyone seeking an honest, humble, caring professional mover.
