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. 

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. 

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.

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.

This is the first time I have ever hired a moving company. I have always moved myself and hate doing it. I was blown away at the level of professionalism and respect shown by Quincy and his men. Every piece of furniture was wrapped and protected. These guys come to work!! They were nonstop until the job was done. We even had a couple of monkey wrenches thrown in with the place we were moving to but Quincy didn't even bat an eye. He worked around the problem and turned what we had planned to be a 2 day move into 1 day. There is no way you could possible be disappointed in hiring Quincy and his men. I'm sure there are other good moving companies out there but I'll never call anyone else.

So let's get this out there, the reason they have so may 5-star reviews is they call you during the move and offer a discount on your bill as long as you do a 5-star review first. With that out of the way, In my conversation with the company, I was told "They crew will be able to start between 8-9 am". Well, they arrived at 11:15am, so don't expect timeliness. On the Thumbtack app where I found them, I gave an honest 4 star review. The guys did bust their butts, but we had some minor damages. I never asked the company for compensation, and I was able to repair most things myself with some wood glue or pliers to bend things back in place. Below you will see my review of them and then the company's response. Keep in mind we never ever used a moving company before, the items were not damaged before the move and we NEVER asked for anything for the damages. Original Review: "Was told they would arrive around 9am, but the invoice said 10am.. They showed after 11am. Everything was wrapped nice, but they don't tell you that you are paying for the wrap (at an inflated price). Scratched walls in a few areas moving items and a few minor damages (warning, they put things on the truck on their side or upside down if it fits better). Overall, cannot beat the price and the 3 guys busted their butts working in the heat." The company reply and the email to follow it: "Your furniture that has damaged from a previous moving company,can not be placed on its legs, when the legs are broken. So that's why you would have furniture sitting sideways and upside down to prevent further damages from a previous moving company." My email response "Are you serious on this reply? This was the first time we used a moving company and there were no damages previously. I will now edit my initial feedback to show how poor this is" And their most unprofessional reply "Ok well feel free, sorry you feel that way! We are also about to post before and after pictures to prove our point. We wrapped everything, and were told by you that a previous moving company moved your stuff before. If this is what your life and day is about! Then feel free! Although, I and all of employees are happy and not miserable! So , have a wonderful and BLESSED day!" We never said anything about having movers before and there was no damage to the home or furniture before. STAY AWAY from this company! Pictures to be posted soon of the damages (again, we never asked them for any compensation for damages).
