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.

Dietric was very responsive, professional, and fast! After another mover no-showed, I called DA Lowe Movers for a same-day move. They arrived 3 hours later!

My move was terrible. The movers arrived with no truck and it took three hours to secure one. The crew was great but the move itself was a disaster. I received little to no contact from Bellhops and would not recommend.

The actual movers who came to our house: (Tate, Fred, Gabriel, and Quinn) were wonderful- they talked me off the ledge of stress as it was just me and my 13 year old daughter trying to move from a 2500 sq ft house. They were patient and persistent as moving issues (steep driveway, narrow stairwells and hallways) came up. However, the people at the call center who booked my move were less helpful. They didn't tell the movers after I updated my inventory a week prior to the move. Nor did they tell the movers about the two beds that needed to be dismantled and set back up. The movers adjusted and did what needed to be done, but better communication would have made it go more smoothly. So all in all, it was a stressful but successful move. My only suggestion is for the people in the office to communicate better with the movers.

Wayne was able to move me out of my apartment in a short notice. The crew was on time, professional, and worked quickly. And when I reached out to move into my new apartment he was available to move me in.

The move team was excellent! They went the extra mile to make sure I was completely moved in even telling me I needed a different dryer plug and installing it for me before they left. Best move experience I've ever had and I've moved a lot during my life. I would definitely hire 404Movers again and would recommend them to friends and family or anyone who needs a reliable moving company.

The two movers NDR sent over were great. They worked well as a team. They were quick, very pleasant and did a great job. The move with just two movers took less time than when I'd had 3 in the past. And this move was about a 45 min drive away. Happy w NDR and would definitely recommend them.

Prodigy movers stick to their estimates by promptly completing work within the expected time unlike most other movers who drag the time and increase the cost. I was able to move my two bedroom in about $400. Highly suggested.

Tony was very responsive to my intital questions and followed up with me the day before my move, the morning of the move and right before they were going to show up. My dad helped me move to ATL from NC and CrossFit Movers saved the day once we got to town. Professional, efficient, very friendly and just all around great guys. Worth every penny. Book them for your next move, you won't regret it!!

Michael and Holden at Falcon Movers are so amazing! They showed up on time and knocked out our move in the time we allotted. When we had last minute scheduling changes they were able to work with us. Super nice guys! Last time we moved we went with some randos last minute and a lot of our cheap furniture broke in the move. Michael and Holden secures all of our furniture safely and it all remained intact through the move. They were so careful and gentle with our stuff that some open totes/boxes we had moved didn’t spill out into the truck.

On time, professional, skilled, careful. Will use them again. This was our 5th move in 6 years, and one of the smoothest because of Tate the Great Movers.

Mike and his team were great. On time, fast and very responsive. I moved stuff from two Atlanta office locations to a new office in Blue Ridge, GA. It was the easiest move I’ve ever made. And there were NO hidden charges, like my previous movers. I’m definitely using 300 Movers again. Give Mike a chance. I’m glad I did.

Everything Goes Moving was really great. We had a small move and didn't want to pay a lot for moving a, few items 10 minutes away. He gave us a flat rate, was on time and didn't break a, thing. I will definitely use them again.

Movers showed up on time, I paid for 4 movers and a truck. I felt the 4th person was somewhat redundant. Otherwise, everything else was fine.

I shopped around for local moving services at Angie's list and Thumbtack, Mitchie was the first responded. I am glad I choose 404 movers. Excellent communication on every step. Great moving service at an affordable price. For my 2 large bed room apartment moving to a house, everything is done in 3 and half hours. Furniture is protected well. Will definitely recommend to my friends.
