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.

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.

Reviews for Venice movers

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.

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.

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!

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)

Work quality was fine, but they were 1.5-2 hours late. Appreciated they came on a last minute request. The woman on the phone told me it would be $100 an hour, but once they arrived and realized we were in a position of need and timing, she said it would be $100/hour PER MOVER. Which is absolutely ridiculous and not at all market. Be aware when you book to specify the cost.

The entire time that they worked they complain about being so much my kids beds are missing screws. My daughter brand new furniture has deep scratches and scrapes. Before hiring them I told them what they would be moving and ask them if they can put the furniture back which he agreed. When they got to my house the complained and kept suggesting for us to tip them! The gentlemen that I spoke with seemed like he really nice his helper not so much. I didn’t appreciate the fact that they were rushing, my furniture wasn’t taken care of and the fact they kept asking for tips.
