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 do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Reviews for Winter Garden movers

I had a local move and had an excellent experience with Dynamic Moving Solutions. They called to let me know they were on their way and were very fast but careful during the move. My one bedroom apartment was moved in two hours. They gave me the best price compared to all the other moving companies around. Will definitely use them again for my next move!!

Best, smoothest move ever! These guys were awesome, start to finish! And fast! Josh & Corey we’re efficient & professional, while remaining cheerful, easygoing and helpful. They took great care with all of my belongings and this is my first move where everything arrived intact and without a single scratch. All American Muscle Moving Company was not only accommodating and easy to schedule, the move cost me less than was quoted, and cost half what other companies were quoting. I can not recommend them highly enough and will definitely use them for my next move. Thank you, Corey & Josh!

Phil called me at 7:15 on the morning to cancel. He told me they were having truck problems. It surprised me that they do not have more than one truck. It really put me in a hard spot. I did find a mover to move me later that day but it cost me extra. American Movers need to have a backup plan so they do not put customers in a bad position.

Sebastian Moving was easy to schedule ahead of time. They showed up with a brand new truck and all supplies (blankets, wrap, etc.) Through Thumbtack I received a great hourly rate. The movers were extremely efficient and there was zero damage. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing! I have used these guys for multiple moves and they are quick, affordable, friendly, and professional. They unloaded a 20’ U-Haul almost completely in 2 hours up three flights of stairs in the 90° Florida heat. Will always hire them for my Central Florida moves!

Movers were thorough and didn’t waste “clocked-in” time, which I appreciated. They also handled my 2-day move no problem, which isn’t typical. I was not however pleased that they damaged some property and the owner of the company never responded nor cared. Not very professional.

I can not discourage anyone more that one star about using this mover. One of the employees sent to my house negligently dropped a year old $900 dryer down a flight of stairs attempting to move it on his own, using a standard hand truck with no straps. Not only did this destroy the dryer, but it also significantly damaged the rental home I was in. The comment from the employee was "I am sorry, I guess I just bought you a new dryer." I would have been okay with that outcome. Instead after a week of getting a run around with no straight answer from movers office, I find out I will be getting about a $70 settlement from them. This is not acceptable. Had the dryer simply been damaged from an accident it would be one thing, but this was negligence and unsafe work practices that caused this damage. The employee who dropped the dryer also stated I would be getting replacement. If you want your move to be a nightmare and have your possessions damaged, by all means use this mover. Otherwise I would suggest you keep scrolling by. Pictures of the damage to the house and dryer are attached so you can see first hand the quality of the work from this mover.

The best movers I’ve ever hired. Through the years I have moved several times and nobody has compared to these guys. Arrived exactly at the scheduled time with a crew that was prepared and ready to get the job done. They treated our belongings as if it were their own. Very polite and professional. A move is never an easy task, but it is especially complicated during a pandemic. They wore masks the entire time, offered to wear shoe covers and were equipped with hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes. All those precautions really put us at ease. I can not recommend them enough!

They were AMAZING! They went above and beyond for me! The manager even came over and helped out for free! They were so wonderful, they helped me disassemble and reassemble my canopy bed, they helped me load all the heavy stuff in my car that’s going to my storage unit. They helped move stuff in my new place. I can’t thank them enough, this was a really stressful move for me (being alone in this pandemic) and they really saved the day! Thank you so so much guys!!! If I need to move again I will definitely be calling you guys!!!!

I am so glad we hired Get Done for our move. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Atis was very responsive and they provided a fair quote and were very honest and upfront about what we would be charged. When they arrived for our move, they worked very quickly and were careful with our belongings. They were friendly and diligent and we could not have possibly asked for a better experience. Moving is so stressful and Get Done made it an effortless experience for us. Definitely the best bang for your buck as well. We highly recommend using Get Done and will be using them in the future.
