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.

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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Very nice and professional. James and his brother moved some living room furniture from my house to a storage unit.

My move took at total of 6 hrs with 3 movers. Ramon and Jay were excellent at packing my things safely and without a scratch into storage...looking forward to requesting them back for the move to my new residence! Only thing that would've been nice is if the movers would've contacted me the morning of to keep me updated on their expected arrival time.

Can I just tell you how incredibly amazing my move team was today?? There were a couple other moving companies at my storage facility today, and they didn't hold a candle to the knowledge, efficiency, professionalism, care, and friendliness Malik and the guys have. I am so grateful to you, to them, and to Midas Moving. Thank you, Taylor. You are all exceptional!!!

You can count on an awesome experience with this company. This was my second move with them. The first, I had to leave as they were unloading. I told them to put stuff wherever, thinking I would move it when I returned. They set up my place so perfectly I never needed to change a thing. This move was into a storage unit, and the crew maximized the space beautifully. Had more room than I planned for! True professionals!!!

My family decided to move some things The night before before our two crown movers; to save time and money by not going over the minimum two hour limit! It ended up only taking our movers an hour to move the left over furniture. The BEST part of the movers value and ethics.... they were willing to put together a storage bins and office chair that we bought the night before!! No questions asked... they were not doing their expecting responsibilities!! Otherwise, there is no telling how long it would have taken my hubby to put them together!! If you use these guys, you are getting awesomeness!!

I wish I could give 404movers five stars - I really do. I only deducted a star for the lack of communication with the home office/business side of the company. I tried to contact Jeff (the associate who sent me the quote for my move) multiple times after my initial booking regarding my furniture and updated itineraries through Thumbtack, email, text, AND phone call for the two weeks leading up to my move. All I wanted was confirmation that the information was received (especially the itinerary change, as I needed to add a storage unit stop). When I finally got in touch with Jeff and Mitch, I was told that they've been busy but did receive the information - a day before my move. I understand getting slammed during peak seasons (I manage a business as well - a primary care clinic), but even a simple "received" text would have sufficed! Having said all that, the move went exceptionally well - Kevin and Gabe were the movers assigned to my project. From supervisor Kevin's initial "en route to your location" call to the final walk through of the empty truck, I did not have to worry about a thing. Kevin was very clear in explaining all the paperwork to me, breaking down the hourly rate and travel fee before and after the move. I moved out of my family's house in Alpharetta and into an apartment in Marietta with my fiancé and they were very respectful and conscious of the furniture in the house that were NOT to be moved. They were very thorough and efficient, managing their time very wisely. I've been told horror stories of various moving company scams turning a 3 hour move into a 6+ hour move to milk you for more money, but this was NOT the case. Kevin and Gabe loaded and unloaded all my furniture within 3 hours, as quoted. I don't see myself moving again for a few more years, but if the movers at 404movers continue this high quality of work, I would absolutely hire them again (even with the communication issues of the home office).
