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. 

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 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 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 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 very rarely leave reviews....but in this instance, I couldn't go another day without expressing my gratitude for Jamal and Bear's Moving Company. Jamal was very responsive, professional and he and his partner got the job done quickly! If anyone is looking for a professional moving company that's fair in pricing and quality of work -- please consider Bear's Moving Co. 5 stars company!

M-Town Movers is an affordable, reliable moving company. Honest and responsive, they will work around your schedule including having their crew move in the evenings if that’s what it takes. I would highly recommend them for moving needs!

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!

This company did a great job of moving me. The crew worked very well together and were very focused. The cost was also very reasonable. I have used several other companies in the past and this was by far my best experience with a moving company. I would highly recommend them and would use them again in the future.

Awesome experience! They were able to move me same day after my first moving company didn’t show up. And they even were able to assemble my furniture after moving it! They made moving during a pandemic so much less stressful!

I had hired Pick Up Movers for my recent move. Actually after experiencing this moving service, I was quite satisfied. The movers came on time on the move day, they wrapped and boxed everything perfectly and moved all my belongings and delivered all the stuff without a scratch at the new destination. I am grateful and thankful to this great moving company for a wonderfully executed move.
