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.

American Movers Orlando, were great. We needed a move from a storage facility to our new apartment ASAP. I got a quote within 15 minutes form Phil. He was extremely professional, and very helpful. His team was able to move us the next day. Everything went well. The movers were careful, efficient, and very professional. We would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a move.

Both of the movers were prompt and very helpful at taking things down and moving things without damaging them. I think there was a little bit of miscommunication between the movers and I for the items that needed to stay in the rental home and items that belonged to me but it all worked out fine.

What I got for my moving was labor guys, not professional movers. For sure they got paid half of what I paid for the hour and the owner packed the difference. Do not recommend.

The team at American movers did what I asked them to do. They took great care in moving my furniture and worked efficient. Every member of the team was pleasant and took their job very seriously. I will be using them again for my move in and would recommend them if you are looking for a quality job.

Very recommended. I did a move from a storage unit into a home garage. So stuff was already packed up and ready to move. I really appreciate their work and assistance on getting my move done correctly. They were both concerned that my furniture and mirrors wouldn't get scratched and took care of everything. I only wish it was done a little quicker but I did have alot to move so that's on me. Again, good job to the guys.

Choosing a mover always seems to be a crap shoot. I had a small but extremely heavy move. Phil and his guys showed up on time, were very courtesy, did work that was not on the work plan, cleaned up and were careful not to break anything. I'm not sure I'd advocate them dating my daughter, but I will use them for anymore moves I make. They weren't the cheapest quote, but you certainly get what you pay for.

Not allow movers to smoke in people's homes and be more up front about moving costs so as not to charge 3x more than was estimated. After a piece by piece and box by box estimate by another company, you tried to charge me 6500 more than anyone else for the same move as well as 10000 more than you estimated originally. It would also be advisable to return people's deposits if the work isn't done and the customer is livid as a result of unfair business practices. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY

I was stuck in a time crunch on a holiday weekend. They were quick to respond. Plenty of communication and were there on time exactly when I needed. The two movers were respectful, polite, asked the right questions and knew what they were doing. Not a thing was harmed in the move. Fast, professional, good people. Thank you!!

I am really disappointed with Strong Movers. Three guys were sent for my move (3 bedroom townhome). They did not load/unload and care for my furniture on the truck property. My newly purchased master bedroom and son bed room furniture were damaged. My walls at the new house were scratched. I have tried contacting the movers and has received with no response. I did speak to the owner Spencer who stated that he was away and would try and resolve issue once he got back into town, however I was not given a date. I am not sure why such delay in response. Very poor customer service! I would not recommend strong movers!!! I made a very poor decision by using their services.

Headway came to our rescue after another mover on this site left us high and dry 3 days before our move. Headway was very professional and everything was exactly as quoted, no surprises. Workers took great care with our belongings and worked swiftly. Very pleased and would definitely use them again.

Price way higher than the original quote and when I asked why there was no response. Before the move everything was great and I thought I was getting a great deal for my mother (army veteran) but I don't think they should have charge a lot more than the quote and then not get back at me with an explanation. This is the reason it is so hard to trust these moving companies! I guess I will try another one next time.

Diggs Haul did a rush move for me and they did exactly what they said they would. The 2 men arrived on time and did a fine job. Also I might add that communication between Diggs office and myself was outstanding. I highly recommend Diggs Haul.

Sometimes it is difficult to find someone willing to take on a small moving job - one large item. This company accepted the assignment, charged a reasonable price, arrived on time, got the job done quickly, and were courteous throughout the process. Could not expect more, and they earned a tip.
