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.

Arrived right on time. Worked very fast on a very very hot day to move my furniture out of a storage unit into a truck, drive the truck to my new apartment, and carry everything up to my 3rd floor apartment. Very polite and helpful.

I have worked with Budget Movers twice now with vastly different experiences. The first move involved meeting at a storage facility to load up packed shipping crates into a home. This move was fast, efficient, and decently priced. It took two men approximately two hours to unpack the shipping crates on to the truck, get to the home, and unload. Total cost was about $300 (for the minimum required 3 hours). My next move was so disappointing. After recommending this business to multiple people who have then gone on to book and pay for services, I expected more. This move was an in town, home to home transfer with U Boxes to be loaded in as well. It involved three men (two seasoned movers and one new hire) and one man switched out with another employee half way through. In every move I have taken part in (and as a military kid that was quite a lot) the longest part of said day, was packing and loading. With the movers having both a home to pack and the extra storage to pack (with advance notice of this fact) they began to load the truck. To my dismay, just loading items in by chance lead to a lack of space and items being left behind for myself to move. And by that I mean the town house was packed and the U Boxes were left without room. Five of the six to be exact. Fast foward to getting in the new house it took them the majority of the day to unload. We gave instructions to just toss boxes inside according to room, no fancy system. Having a new person on the team slowed them down since they had to explain how to best unload and carry different items, multiple items were damaged (as in a box of glass completely dropped and shattered, a gouge out of a handmade wooden chest) and they generally had no interest in moving it along. As they're charging hourly this is a huge problem, especially when come to find out, they calculated the job time 1.5 hours early when charging me. We asked for the damaged items to be deducted from cost, as with their standard moving contract, up to $300 of damages. Their answer was stating the could fix the damage in 30 mins. Fixing a hand carved chest in 30 minutes when the original builder quoted way more work? No thank you, its worth more than the risk. This along with the added expense of moving the storage boxes ourselves, the fact that unload was 3 times longer than move in. Im just so frustrated and stressed over what I thought would be a slam dunk for use both. Good money for them and good service for us. Well they got their money, all $800 of it.
