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.

The Right Way Labor and Relocation is so professional and thoroughly qualified. They did a first floor to second floor move for me and it was fast and seamless. They were both extremely hard working and did everything with care and correctly. I am only sorry I don't have an entire house of furniture for them to move for me.... they were wonderful to work with and I highly recommend them to anyone considering a large or small move. Way better than the brand movers at the higher prices.

Alen and his team have been amazing. they were on time, very courteous, and extremely professional throughout the entire move. Alen walked through with my wife and confirmed everything that was being moved before starting and didn't miss a beat after. The guys went above and beyond to make sure all of our items were wrapped and packed safely to ensure no damage on any of our furniture. Pricing was also very competitive. Over all we have been extremely satisfied and impressed with the speed, quality, and professionalism of the team. The value they offer when compared to other movers is as good as it gets. We will definitely be using them again should we need to do any moves in the future and will also be recommending to our family and friends.

Bernard Movers LLC did an outstanding job for me! In having to deal with being out of state, Litsa and her staff made what I thought would be a lengthy and difficult situation into a very easy transition. I didn't have to travel to Florida to supervise any of the move or services. They're very professional and understanding company. Everything was handled very professionally, from the business aspect to packing, unpacking and setting up to having the original place professional cleaned for selling. I never doubted hiring this company they followed my requests and handled it all in a very professional and timely manner. I would highly recommend "Bernard Movers" to anyone who's looking for a great moving company and GREAT people. Thank you for making my moms transition much more easier, as well as making my work easier to handle. Thank You!!! Patricia

They were reliable, responsible, and did what they said they would. Deb was "on top of it"! They really went above and beyond for me. My storage unit was not big enough for all my stuff, they were kind enough to leave the truck overnight at my place til I found another unit. Then when I was out of town, I realized we stored something that I needed to return to my landlord, they went to the storage unit for me to find the item, even dropped it off and my landlord for me! I've never had a company care that much about making my move as stress free as humanly possible. If use them again... and have already referred them to my brother in law for when he moves. Thanks Gregg Mazza

Debbie, can't thank you enough for sending Jeff and Rome to me to help us move my Moms bedroom and a couple of family heirlooms that are priceless and not replaceable. They got there 20 Minutes early and we're ready to work and were so polite and took so much care with our furniture! Upon getting it to my house they weren't far behind us and we're very careful getting things into the house! I would recommend your company to everyone! Thanks again! Tina

Let me start by saying that the employees were very friendly and arrived on time. Other than that we were very dissatisfied. When given an estimate prior to hiring it was anywhere from $1100-$1500. We accepted. The day they arrived to pack, I told them there was less to pack as we decided to not have them pack any food (they did end up packing a very few food items that were in Tupperware). I had bought actual moving boxes prior because we did pack and move some things for showing of the house. There were several boxes left over to include a TV Box with padding that I showed them. The first day they packed and were returning the next morning to move everything to our storage unit (that was less than 2 miles away). When I walked around after they had packed I noticed that they had left a wrought iron stand that held 2 baskets on my vanity. I didn't think anything of it, figured they ran out boxes or something and would get it the next day. The next day they showed up to do the move. I was not at the house, my husband was. By the time I got to the house, they had finished. My husband mentioned that they had been in a real big rush because they had another job to get too. I walked into my bathroom and that wrought iron stand still sat on the vanity plain as day and they had not gotten a blue wooden cabinet that was in front of the toilet. This was not a cabinet attached to a wall, it was free standing and obviously not part of the house. I then walked to the front hall closet and they had not gotten a plastic set of 3 drawers that held things like light bulbs, vacuum bags, etc. Everything else in there was gone except that. They also left a large wall hanging in the dining room. Now, forgetting the little stand, not a big deal. But forgetting pieces of furniture? Not ok. We ended up having to take those things to our storage unit ourselves and when we opened it we saw that they had put our TV on the ground with a piece of paper over the screen. The box I had showed them was stacked on top of other things in there. Why was it not used when I specifically showed it to them? Maybe it didn't fit, but in that case they should have used one of their boxes. Not transport a 70 inch TV with no protection. I'm sure things were forgotten and not done because they were in such a rush. As well as, who knows if there is any damage to anything because of the rushing. We won't know till we remove the items from storage in 6 months to a year. We have a really big problem that things were missed and/or not done properly because they were rushing to get to another job. WE paid them to do a job as well. They should have called the other client and let them know they would be running late. It was not our problem that they had not given themselves enough time and had another job. In the end we were charged $1400. So, $100 shy of the high end of the estimate for a rushed, not complete job that they had to drive less than 2 miles to deliver.
