Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

We have moved 11 times in the past 30 years. Move number 12 with Josh Moore was without a doubt the easiest move of all. Josh and his team were professional, responsive, thorough and took great care moving every piece. The rates are very fair. For the quality service Josh gives, the price was a bargain! Please contact Josh for a quote. You will not be disappointed.

Big screen TV screen was severely scratched during the move. Was not wrapped or protected to prevent this from happening. Movers were contacted & informed the same day of the damage, sent photo of it & no action or compensation was initiated on their part. Very dissapointing.

Great team effort. I had them clean before the move-in. That was a nice treat. The next day they did the move. Laure and Alex work very hard and earn every penny. I would recommend them and use them again myself.

This is a great company. These gentleman showed up actually 10 minutes early and worked incessantly to wrap protect remove all the furniture regardless of how heavy it was. It was neatly packed in the van so that nothing was scratched and offloaded on the other end which in my case was only 5 miles away. They reassembled everything quickly and efficient Lee. I even had other furniture delivered that day that they would not move it inside the house the gentleman from family moving move that in unpacked it assembled it and put it in place. I think what impressed me most was the fact that they wrapped the glass shelves in heavy blankets, taped them to prevent unfolding and then saran wrapped over all of that fiberglass I am a fussy SOB. But I could not say that I have ever seen a more efficient moving

Kyle and Robert facilitated our move on November 15th. Although their morning appointment ran late, they were very professional and kept us informed of their arrival time. They stuck with us until the job was done. Both Kyle and Robert were very personable, hard-working and careful with our treasured possessions. Thanks Southern Cross Moving.

Even though they were running late from unexpected issues with the move before me, they still came and moved me in the rain (which I requested). They did give me the option to postpone until the next morning. Three men were sent to make up some extra time at no additional charge to me. Highly recommend!

The 2 men arrived right on time and worked efficiently and courteously the entire time. However, my furniture was very heavy. It really required 3 men. They were exhausted by the end of the move. One good ceramic pot was broken. All else was just fine and well wrapped. The moving company should have assessed my furniture beforehand. Other than that I definitely recommend them.

These guys were the BEST MOVERS EVER!!!! THEO was absolutely fantastic, Albert (alias Carlton from Fresh Prince) made me laugh all day and Paul was absolutely wonderful! Together I call them "My Three Sons" and I will keep them in my hearts forever. No only did they carefully move all my belongings with gentleness but did it with lots of care for everything I owned. I was having a really bad day but they made everything good again!! They taught me that there are still gentlemen in the world who care about people and their feelings! These 3 guys are one of a kind!! If I EVER move again (and I pray that DOES NOT HAPPEN) but if it does, I will only use Southern Cross Moving and I will ALWAYS request My Three Sons, Theo, Albert and Paul!!! Thank you so very much, Greg, for sending them to me. They truly are the BEST and deserve your highest praise!!!! Thank you, Sandie Caldwell (Ma to my boys)
