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.

Excellent movers at a great price. I would definitely use them again and recommend Fast Moves to friends.

The experience with the Fast Moves crew was great. Matt and Demontre' were very polite and efficient. They never slowed down and moved everything with care. I'm sure it was a somewhat difficult move since we were on the 3rd floor but no complaining from these guys, business as usual. Thanks to Dave, Matt and Demontre' for the great move; will recommend to all my friends when moving days come around. Cassie and Gil Smith

The guys were nice enough, but clearly have no experience on how to move a baby grand piano and have never moved one in the past. The piano is 50+ years old and one of the legs were bad, but they didn't know they had to remove the legs of the piano to begin with and were pretty rough with it. Considering it's a family heirloom and an antique, it was sad to see how badly it got smashed up. With the hammer they used to try to smash the leg off ended up taking out chunks of wood from it and there were pieces of wood found at my parent's house after they moved it from there and other spots of the piano that had been pretty badly damaged. It also said they were CDC compliant, but nobody was wearing masks or gloves either. I'm sure these guys are great movers, but these guys had no knowledge of how to properly dismantle or move a piano. My advice is please don't advertise in the future you are piano movers if you actually aren't. Also, I'm not pretending like the piano wasn't old or in the best of shape before because that is not the case. It just sucks because looking at it the morning after and seeing how much damage was added because of the move was disheartening.

I've used many moving companies over the years for personal and business use all over the country. Pride is, hands down, THE BEST. Communication, professionalism, punctuality, quickness, friendliness, price. All top notch. I'd recommend them to everyone and would never use another company.

I cannot day enough about these hardworking, pleasant employees. Knowing I was limited on how much I had to spend on movers, they literally ran back and forth to the truck! Superb job guys. Thank you so much for your very hard work. Hope your boss sees this and gives you a raise— you deserve it. You are a great asset to your company.

I am very satisfied with the caring and professional service. It was a complicated move, one truck from Tampa and one from Pinellas Park. The owner did a great job juggling trucks to get everything picked up and delivered to one location in a timely manner. The crew on each truck was professional and careful. The price was good. I would definitely hire them again. Thanks to them all.

They were prompt and checked with me the day before to make sure everything was all set. They were very careful and wrapped all my furniture. I had two very old antiques that they moved without a scratch and kept them in one piece! I was so grateful as I was all by myself. They disassembled the furniture and put it all back together. I can not recommend them highly enough. Their charges were reasonable too.

Embrey's Moving Solutions loaded contents of my 3 story townhome into a portable unit Sunday 11/22/15. From initial contact to completion, they were outstanding. I received a confirmation of date and time a few days before scheduled date, from Mr. Embrey, and the two men doing the loading, called in advance and arrived on time. Eric and Tavo were professional, courteous, efficient and very easy to work with from start to finish. I was concerned about all belongings fitting into unit, having set aside questionable items. They fit everything carefully and tightly into the storage unit, which will be stored for 6 months, then transported up north. While in the home, they were very careful; no nicks or scratches to my home or furnishings. They had to move heavy items down a tight semi spiral staircase and did so without incident. I have recommended Embrey's to several inquiring neighbors and family and will continue to do so. Thank you very much Embrey's, for your outstanding service.

I wish I could have picked all of the positive characteristics so that I could appropriately show the value of this crew. Professional, kind, thoughtful, and efficient! Extremely reassuring in a moment of stress while moving :-) Jeremy and Tyrone were gentlemen and finished quicker than the time that was estimated. They even went above and beyond and helped me pack my car. Excellent communication. Able to accommodate at the last minute. Blown away at how easy they made it look!!!! They are on speed dial for me. Amazing. Five stars.

This company has to be to the finest moving company that ever dealt with the public. They were there exactly when they said they would be. I don't take care of my furniture as well as they did. OMG!!! They were like a team. Wrappers, carriers, and the packer that was like putting a puzzle together in the truck. They spent all day from 10 am. It was 90 degrees and they wouldn't stop. I felt so bad I ran out to get ice coffee for them then forced them to stop to eat sandwichs I bought. But after all was said and done someone in their company seemed to make a mistake on the estimate I was given. Instead of 1 truck it took 2 26' trucks. One of the owner Dave, showed up with the 2nd truck. He worked every bit as hard as his guys. I thought OMG this oversight is going to cost me a fortune!! I was shocked when I got a phone call from Kimberly in their company to tell me the mistake was on their part and they were honoring their estimate. Any company that stands behind their word is the company I will.ONLY do business with!!! SO IF YOU CHOOSE ANOTHER MOVING COMPANY YOU'RE MAKING A MAJOR MISTAKE!!!!!!
