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.

The movers came a little bit late but it is not a problem with me. They were friendly and moved all my stuff in a reasonable time. Carlos was excellent, very enjoyable to work with. Unfortunately, there was a small damage to my china buffet at the front bottom. I guess the mover did not put padding at the bottom. I was very pleased that Sebastian Moving repaired it on the same day and did a good job on it. So overall, I am still happy with the experience and probably will use Sebastian Moving again if I have to move.

This was a terrific experience and I would recommend Most Dependable Movers to anyone. The prices are reasonable and the movers treated us as if they were moving their own family. We had to change time of the move with only 4 days notice and they cheerfully accommodated us. We added a request that they move some framed pictures and they were able to include the packing material to prevent damage. This company got everything right. Thank you.

Dynamic's manager Jose is Great! Enjoyed my working experience with him. The three movers on the day of my move were very good at their job. I was a little dismayed with the timing. I thought they could have done the move in less time. Overall 'Good Experience'.

We hired the Most Dependable Movers for a short move to help with the heaviest items in our house (dining room table, sleeping sofa, bed frames, etc.). The MD movers got a great team. They got to our house on time, and loaded the truck fast. Everything was communicated very clearly from the company as well as from the moving crew. The quote/invoice/payment handled in a very professional manner, and all items were provided in no time. Excellent guys! Highly recommended.

I would recommend Dynamic Moving Solutions. The movers showed up on time, they went right to work/didn't waste any time, and they worked hard to ensure that I was pleased with their service. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is due the lack of responsiveness from the call center who never answered or returned my calls on the day of my move.

Get it Done Moving has got to be the best moving company in the Central Florida area. Atis and his team was amazing. Atis came to my house a few days before my move and gave me a direct quote. He sent two gentleman who were very professional and fast. The two men move everything with care in my three bedroom home in 5 hours total exactly what I was quoted. The price was right and the service was excellent. I would defiantly recommend this company to my family and friends. Thanks guys.. you ROCK!!!!

Movers were great! Called and were early, we were still packing a bit and they even offered to help and were very friendly. We used movers before and they seem to drag it and it was much more expensive. Great value overall, would definitely refer!

I contracted with Dynamic Moving Solutions to move antique furniture to storage. The crew was prompt, courteous and loaded the truck carefully and efficiently. They packed the storage unit , protected the furniture and completed this in less time than I ever imagined. It was a great experience--not a second was wasted.

Beware. I received similar quotes to other local companies for a local move. I have moved both interstate and locally at least a half a dozen times. We needed both packing and moving. Michael Nicolas said all the right things but did not deliver. His company was unprofessional and dishonest. We had to direct his crew to make sure they did the job correctly. His movers left the job before completing the work due to one unruly employee. We learned later that this employee had problems at other jobs in the past. In the end Mr Nicolas argued with us for over an hour on completing the job. Stay away.

My moving experience was really good when My family needed a company to get the job done in a cost effective and timely manner. We had the Alex and Alex crew which did a great job moving our 3rd floor apartment. They were always in communication with us and they did not stop until the job was done. We will be using them again when it is time for my fiancé and I to buy a home and be sure to reccomend them to anyone We know who needs to hire a good moving company. One thing that helps your move is have everything ready as much a possible and it’s a breeze if you do.
