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.

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.



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.

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.

Should I buy moving insurance?

Your homeowners or renters insurance policy may or may not protect your belongings if they get lost or damaged during a move. If you’re moving valuable items, or if you’re moving a great distance, it could be a good idea to invest in moving insurance.

Interstate movers are required to offer you full value protection and released value protection to help reimburse you in case of damage or loss. If you’re moving within your state, check with your state’s consumer affairs agency to see if your state has rules and requirements regarding moving insurance and valuation coverage.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa.

Will and Calvin were great. They were early and very quick with the move. They were very careful with everything and even helped me with my living room arrangement. I would 100% use RLMJ again. Thanks for making my move less stressful.

Contacted the company due to a last minute moving job - they were incredibly helpful, and contacted me immediately (on a Saturday night, no less). Within an hour, I was set up for a 9am move the next day. The two movers were incredibly polite, friendly and conscientious during the whole move -- could not have asked for a better team and would highly recommend Next Door Relocators!!!!

Great team who performed the move. They were punctual, actually even arrived a little early ( but called first) and were in and out quickly. They knew what they were doing, easily performed our simple job which was moving furniture within the house to different floors and did the job in less time than we expected

Darel and Randy were early! I've never had movers be on time before much less early and that was after scheduling with them only the night before. Although I did not need them to pack anything, they very neatly wrapped every single item. There skill at moving was very evident in the way they made it look easy to move even the heaviest of furniture. I've never had movers so precise in the way that they held the furniture straight and steady. Their professionalism was beyond reproach. Thank you!

John responded immediately and saved the day when we realized we got in over our heads in moving a very heavy item, that we needed get off a rental truck in a short time frame. He was out in less than an hour with a team of two other guys. They were courteous and did a great job safely handling our item with care!

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! AVOID Mitchie at all costs !! Here is what happened..This guy gave me a contract for $95 per hour after I asked him to give me his best rate. HE SIGNED THE CONTRACT...Two days back, he called me and said he made a MISTAKE in the pricing and hiked it to $129...Since my move was for this SATURDAY, I had no option but to sign..HE ALSO SIGNED IT yesterday and sent it back..I did request him to see if he can reduce the $ a little- although I knew I could do nothing if he refused. This morning, this guy called and CANCELLED the move !!!! He said he felt since I was asking for discounts, I will not be happy with the move. When I told him that he was literally hanging me out to dry cancelling this at the last minute, he could not care less..This guy Mitch looked professional, but cannot be trusted at all..DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF even wasting a phone call on him and his services; I am concerned now since he came to my house last week in the pretext of "planning" the move and took some pictures...not comfortable with that given what I am finding out about this guy... He seems like a guy with absolutely zero conscience and no concern for the customer..all he cares about is how to make an extra $ at the expense of folks who trusted him to uphold the contract he signed and make their move simpler... AVOID THE HASSLE I AM GOING THRU NOW, CALL A BETTER MOVING COMPANY..DO NOT USE 404 MOVERS IF YOU WANT PEACE OF MIND...THIS HAS BEEN A DISASTROUS EXPERIENCE...

They moved us on September 24/25. I reported damage to my refrigerator and foyer table. Two weeks later I had to reach out to get an update. I was treated rudely via email with comments such as "significant damage" be a clerk who had not even reviewed the pictures. The owner (Steve) finally came out and acknowledged that the refrigerator door need to be replaced and table repaired. 3 weeks later they finally got back to me on moving forward. I was provided no less than 3 dates for onsite repair .....all were broken without even a call from Steve. I had to call them. Then I was told the door was on back order and it would be sent to my home directly. I requested that Steve call me no later than last Friday to verify that the order has been placed and when the door and service man would be at my home. I informed him that I would file in Magistrate court if I did not hear from him. I did not hear from Steve as requested and have filed a small claims suit as I had told him. This is the worst management team I have ever dealt with in business. Their disregard for the customer is blatant.
