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.

I highly recommend Pride Movers. From getting a quote to moving the last box, everything was done with my move in mind. The stress and anxiety melted away as the team came in and worked hard and fast to get us moved. They are a friendly, fun team, that truly takes Pride in your items, raking the best care to move it safely to the destination. Moving is stressful, make it easier in yourself by hiring this LOCAL mover.

Extremely Unhappy with Happy Moving company. Excellent communication. Good price. Flexible scheduling. Then the movers showed up with this! A dirty pickup truck and open hauler. When I complained via thumbtack I only got a “Sorry you are going to have to find another mover”. No, let me make this right, just go find another moving company. Great “Salesman”. HORRIBLE customer service. Luckily I don’t have to have my things out today or I’d be in a real pickle. Happy Moving could care less. UNRELIABLE Pick someone else.

I can’t say enough good things about Tom and D at american made moves. They went above and beyond to help our already stressful move-in go smoothly and quickly! We highly recommend using them for your move, and because this is only a short-term lease for us, we definitely plan on using them again on our next move!! Thank y’all so much for the top notch service, and we’ll be calling you in the near future to help us out once again!

Just made the move last week and still unpacking. They are the best mover that I have ever hired. The owner is very nice and easy to talked to. Rescheduled my moving date once with no problem. I only had a couple bottles of water in my old apartment so the movers only had one each for the first 2 hours which I felt so guilty about. But they never complained and kept doing they job. Very efficient and hard working. The time they spent was what I had expected and the price is very competitive! Will definitely use them again next time and had referred to my friends and colleagues who need and will need a mover in the near future.

Jeremy and his team, James and Van were Exceptional movers in every way. I spoke to Jeremy the evening before the move and we agreed on a reasonable price for my 2 hr minimum move. James and Van showed up when Jeremy said they would. They were professional, respectful, efficient, and STRONG. I mean, really strong. I had a small move to a storage unit which they handled with ease and precision. Even taking their time to pack my color coded bins into my storage unit with the boxes I needed access to in front. They got it done within the 2 hours and I paid with Venmo. It was fast and easy. My sister will be hiring Jeremy’s team for her move this month and I’m recommending them to everyone I know. This is a classy team of pros. After talking to 6 other companies, many with inflated pricing and condensing attitudes toward me, a single senior woman. Athletic Movers was a breath of fresh air. No need to look further, these fine young men are your movers.

Very responsive. They put in the lowest bid to move a piano. They came exactly when they said they would, did the job professionally and with courtesy, and moved the piano efficiently without a bit of damage to anything. Would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for Jeremy and his crew. Not only did his quote come is less expensive by nearly HALF… but he was incredibly responsive in the weeks leading up to my move, they showed up right on time with amazing smiles and attitudes, they got the entire move completed from start to finish in three hours and were the kindest souls to work with. I had a previous move six months ago that was incredibly disastrous, so I was super nervous about this one. However, it went so smoothly that I actually got emotional… such a relief to find a crew that still has integrity! Hire these guys, you won’t regret it!

“Our rates are simple, $85/hour with a 2 hour minimum.” Just spoke to the owner and he wanted to tack on a $50 truck fee because my job was under 6 hours. I explained my move would probably take an hour and a half at most because I was moving my belongings to a storage unit a mile away. I told him his stated 2 hr minimum was fine but when I referenced the description on thumbtack as not showing an added 50 dollar truck fee he got aggressive and rude to me and told me to stop telling him how to run his business. Told me I was lucky he wasn’t also charging me a gas fee. Huh? Not simple after all.

They were right on time and very efficient. I would use them again but would ask for estimates and prices in writing prior to hiring them. They didn’t disclose some of the fees they charge which was close to double what was quoted to me over the phone. Their hourly rate is pretty competitive but they also add in a truck fee. I’ve never had a mover charge a fee for use of their truck in the past.
