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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Josh and his team moved my mom out of her home of 40 years and into a life care facility. It was an emotional time for her and his team was perfect. NOT ONE ISSUE! I highly recommend Big Man's Moving Company. Josh was great at communicating, before and during the move. His estimate was clear and very reasonable. Move day was handled efficiently and carefully. The team was courteous, professional and very hard working. Josh takes personal care with your move, before during and after. Book this company for your move - you will not be disappointed.

Big Man's Moving was excellent! From the get go Brooke was absolutely fantastic about understanding our moving needs and gave us fair pricing. She offered different options, which were very competitive. She communicated frequently and made sure our move would be smooth and stress less. The day of the move Josh and his crew texted of their arrival time kept me updated of their arrival. The crew arrived timely, were very professional, courteous and absolutely efficient in their work. They moved my 3 bedrooms, dining, living, the whole nine yards in a very systematic and safe fashion. They wrapped all fragile/care needing items properly and made sure nothing was scratched or broken. All the moving, and not a single nick or bump in either of the houses. I was very impressed and pleased with Big Man's moving and would highly recommend them for anyone's moving needs. Thanks Big Man's Moving!

Couldn't of asked for a smoother move than what Elite Power Moves provided. The two gentleman showed up when they said they would. Shrunk wrap anything that possibly needed it. Broke down the bed and put it back together. Got everything moved out of the old and into the new, in just about 2 hours. Definitely would use them again and recommend them to any friends who are moving.

Big burns was extremely fast to respond to my inquiry and had great prices compared to all of the other quotes I received to move a fridge across town. The movers were on time, very nice and helpful, however in moving the fridge they did not use any moving blankets or protection and unfortunately scuffed my fridge in a number of different places. I would use this company again, however recommend requesting that they using moving blankets for your items. Again, hard to beat their price and responsiveness if you need work done quick!

The team was right on time. They listened intently while I went through the house with them. (An as-is sale with some stuff to move and others to be donated.) They definitely created a loading strategy that was best for what I wanted. I'll be calling Happy Moving for my next move! Great price too!

I highly recommending Happy Moving for your moves. It was a last minute decision to look for movers & after going through the reviews I hired Happy Moving glad I did. It was easy to schedule & pay for the service. Two gentlemen showed up right on time 6 AM and were finished by 7 AM moving furniture from a pod into the house, both very friendly and I appreciated how quickly they got the job done so I could get to work by 10. Worth every penny. Excellent customer service- thank you!!!

When I came to Thumbtack and asked about movers, I got responses from 3 different companies. Big Man's Moving Company wasn't the cheapest, but his quote sounded reasonable. I also checked all 3 out on Yelp, and he had the highest score. Josh, the owner, does all moves and has 1 or 2 helpers; for our move, he was there with Paul. They were both friendly and professional. The move took about 45 minutes less than I thought it would. I cannot give them more praise for all the hard work they did in such a short time!

Josh was extremely helpful and knowledgable about my move. He took the time to call me and talk to me about all the details and gave me a great price. The day of the move, Josh and his team showed up on time, handled all of my furniture with great care and finished the whole move in less than 3 hours. Moving is a lot of work and very stressful but Josh and his company made it so much easier. Definitely recommend!!
