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.

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 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. 

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.

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. 

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 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.

How do I choose the best long-distance moving company in Atlanta?

The best long-distance moving companies in Atlanta will have a familiarity with the Georgia area and know how to manage some of the challenges of an Atlanta move, such as peak traffic times and high temperatures. You might also want to hire movers who are skilled in packing quickly and carefully, as well as efficiently relocating your belongings.

For moves within Georgia, you can check the Georgia Department of Public Safety website for more information on licensed movers in the state.

When researching the best long-distance moving companies in Atlanta, compare reviews and ratings. Pay attention to reviews that mention the movers’:

  • Quality of work. Have customers complained about their belongings being damaged during the move?
  • Punctuality. Are the movers known to show up on time?
  • Professionalism. Were the movers nice, respectful and responsible? 

After you’ve narrowed down your top picks, reach out to the movers and ask for estimates.

Where can I get moving boxes in Atlanta?

If you’re looking for moving boxes, there are plenty of stores in Atlanta that sell them. Often, hardware stores and companies that rent moving trucks typically sell moving boxes of various shapes and sizes. You can also purchase some from stores that specialize in moving boxes, such as Moving Boxes Atlanta, at an affordable price -- many small and medium boxes are priced in the $1 range. Some stores, such as Georgia Green Box offer environmentally friendly options.

If you need free moving boxes to stay within your budget, there are a variety of low-cost options. Liquor stores, grocery stores, pet stores and bookstores could be good places to start. 

You can also ask moving companies in Atlanta whether they can provide boxes and packing materials for your move.

I moved items from a storage unit into a 1 bedroom Condo. The move was very efficient. They showed up to storage ahead of time, and interacted with me in a very professional manner. I would hire them again. My only critic, make sure our furniture is protected with padding.

The team was great, extremely quick & professional. I used them to move some things into storage while my wife and I are looking for a home. I plan on using them to get things out of storage as well.

they work non-stop from 9am to 1:30pm they did a great job!!! We are also thankful that we got Tre as our mover as there is a mixed-up of schedule that we are told our movers is coming at 2ish instead of 9am schedule. Tre called and confirmed and show up on time (9am) they moved and packed our storage. I gave them instructions as we arrange the storage and they are very nice and kind. thank you

Bernard & Fred did an extremely great job at moving our things from the storage and into the house. They were professional, prompt, and proficient. I would highly recommend MyPorter to anyone.

Both of the movers were prompt, polite and worked very efficiently. They were careful with my furniture and the home I was vacating and got everything moved into storage in the time estimated. I’d definitely use this company again! As a Realtor I would recommend Three Movers and a Truck to my clients also.

Hired Elbert to help my friend move from one storage unit to another that was climate controlled and in a better location. We had a few issues with the previous storage unit that morning, which made it impossible to move immediately. Elbert was very patient, kind and provided a lot of guidance and support. He was available to come back later that evening to help us move and haul away the things we couldn't take. He was very quick but careful and highly professional. I would definitely hire him again and recommend him.

Absolutely wonderful! Tate’s crew handled moving 3 big storage units flawlessly and finished the job under the anticipated completion time. All of the items were handled with great care and his team was super nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this moving company for your moving needs.

My Porter movers were professional, detail oriented with a great work ethic. They sent a four man crew which worked well together to get my 4 bedroom house broken down and moved into a storage unit. Will definitely use them in the future.

NDR did a great job for us, they were very affordable and reliable. They moved us out of our condo and put our stuff in storage and then delivered to our new home about 15 days later. Would highly recommend them for any moving needs!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Midas Movers. In all honesty, I was a bit unorganized in my move -- it was a last minute move; I pushed back our move time by an hour; and I didn't confirm the location of my storage space until the day before our move. Through it all, Midas was very patient and accommodating. When it came time for the move, they were on-time and professional. A lot of my furniture is quite heavy, including a huge marble table top and a stand-up piano, and they were able to delicately move all of our belongings with just two guys. Our 20ft Uhaul truck was pretty much full to the brim, and they got it all done in just over an hour. On top of all this, they offered the best price of anyone on Thumbtack! When I move our stuff out of storage, I will definitely be calling Midas Movers again.

The best moving experience I have ever had. They responded to my request for a quote quickly and then came over with two options for pricing. I have antiques and they were wrapped and moved to a storage unit with impeccable care and quality of service. I will be moving again and will schedule them for my second move. They have the highest rating I could possibly give. Thank you for a great job!

We had MyPorter move ALL of our stuff into storage after selling our house faster than expected. Bernard and his team were fantastic and we will request them again when we find a new home.

Fisher of Men was able to pack and move all my furniture in my living room, and multiple items from my garage to the storage a few miles away. Everything was packed tightly, they didn't move like slugs and also very efficient and professional workers. Look forward to working with Fisher of Men again soon.
