Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do movers cost in Atlanta?

In Atlanta, the top movers range from $75 to over $100 per hour. This is an estimated cost that can fluctuate throughout the year and vary depending on several factors. Factors that can impact the cost of your move include whether you need flat-rate or hourly movers, specific moving services (i.e. packing services or moving boxes) or additional movers to load your belongings. 

How do I choose the best moving company in Atlanta?

First, you’ll want to compare the best moving companies Atlanta has to offer. When comparing, check the estimated costs. When you see movers who might fit your budget, read their profiles and reviews. Keep an eye out for movers who respond quickly and arrive on time. If you’re moving within Georgia, make sure the moving company you choose has a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. You can check by reaching out to the Georgia Department of Public Safety.

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. 

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. 

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.

Where can I rent a moving truck in Atlanta?

There are several moving truck rental companies in the Atlanta area where you can find an assortment of trucks available to rent, including pickup trucks and box trucks. However, many moving companies provide their own trucks when helping you move. Research and compare Atlanta movers to find a company that will take care of everything for you at a price you’re comfortable with.

I’m moving less than 1/2 mile away and they wanted to charge me $125 fuel charge. They were completely unwilling to negotiate this rate. Unreasonable pricing.

These guys made moving so easy for me! I only had a bedroom to move, but they moved all my stuff in less than 2 hours. None of my items were damaged. The movers were extremely courteous and COVID safe. They never took longer than 24 hours to respond to my messages, too. Their rates are much cheaper than other movers. I highly recommend.

Pick Up Movers is just an all-around amazing moving company. They performed really well while they handled my last move. None of my belongings were less important to them. Everything received the same amount of attention and care. They were punctual, both during arrival and delivery. Their efficiency must have saved us so much money. The company didn’t quote too high to begin with. Their final bill was even less than the quote. I was just over the moon when I realized what super services I got at this unbelievably low price.

Bear's Moving Company offers you an unrivaled service in your moving-labor and transportation needs because of their responsive communication, care in transporting precious and heavy items, and at a great price. That was my experience and I hope yours is the same with Qualin and the Bear's Moving Co. Protip - During the move, you can also offer to help load or unload to decrease fixed hourly price if less time is taken. (Pay per hour)

I hired Jasean to move me last week at the last minute. I told him that I needed to move at 8am and that it was going to take less than 2 hours. They arrived on time but you never realize exactly how much stuff you have until you start moving so it took longer than I expected. However, I was given a fare price for the extra work that was done and they moved everything with ease. Definitely would hire Compass for another move.

Gregory and his crew were wonderful moving my stuff out of a loft and into a storage unit. I’m excited to have their help again. They are so kind, friendly, and great with communication. I especially valued how Greg made me feel taken care of, he really knows how to make moving less stressful.

Great service with a move from Chicago to Florida.Much easier than last time when using a national moving carrier because they could not have items next day at new location since my load was less than a full moving van and got merged with other loads. Pick Up Movers was more then enough for a two bedroom unit. The guys worked hard in a tight space and did not damage any items with their careful blanket wrapping and blanket on porch when titling to get thru a narrow space.

These guys were absolutely awesome on my move. They had my (very full) studio apartment loaded up in less than an hour, and then unloaded (up two flights of stairs with no elevator!) within 2 hours. Will definitely hire them again!

Having worked with many moving companies, I can say without hesitation that 404Movers is the best. My interaction with the company was nothing but positive. In particular, I appreciated how professional and efficient the movers were, as well as the care they took to protect my furniture. I have never had a moving company wrap and safeguard my belongings to the extent done by 404Movers. Notably, this exceptional level of care did not result in an inflated final bill. In fact, it seemed to allow them to move more quickly (e.g. they could use dollies and worry less about harming the furniture). And, in then end, they came in well below their quoted time and cost. If you are in the market for a moving company, choose 404Movers!

Simply put, average work done. They moved my stuff from point A to point B, nothing more, nothing less. Called me the morning of and said they suggested three movers instead of the original two the sales director suggested and it would only be $10 more. They tried to pull the "Oh wait, it will be $15 more" when they got there like some other reviewers said - fought back and they stuck with the $10 more finally. Leader of the move pretended he didn't know they were going to charge $15, but it seems like this is common based on other reviews, ridiculous they can't be upfront. Overall, move was fine.

I hired 4 movers to move out of a two-story townhome and small storage unit into a larger storage unit. They arrived on time and confirmed they were on they way. All four of them worked very hard the whole time and it took them less time than I thought it would. They were great to work with and I was asked many times during the move if everything was going well with the move and if I was happy with how things were going. I had been very anxious about the day but it all ended up going very smoothly with no glitches. I would definitely recommend them!
