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.

Move Packer Gurus has been the most pleasant experience with movers I’ve experienced. The owner Mr. Maurice was quick with his responsive, was transparent on pricing from start to finish and communicated with the packing process. Him and his team are the best movers in the Atlanta area. I shopped around for quotes and even had my lender refer a company... All of them came out super expensive. It was a few days before the big move (literally) and Mr. Maurice accepted the job. These pros are a must hire for your moving needs. If you’re looking for speedy, but meticulous pros Move Packer Gurus is your movers. Thank you for making my transition seamless Mr. Maurice. Will use again, will refer... my number ONE company!!!

This was the worse moving experience. Movers showed late, lost the keys to the truck, cursing and awful language, did not finish until midnight. Supervisor did not help the situation, offered a discount on the move when it should have been close to free. I will never use this company again.

When I originally scheduled my appointment, I requested 4 movers, I specifically talked to Stephen that scheduled me about my 92" TV that needed to be moved, and I was confirmed for a 1:30p appointment. Friday before the move I spoke with Stephen to make some adjustments as my delivery location had changed and he suggested that since I was moving into a storage that I use theirs. I did not confirm that with him, but told him I would get back with him after talking to my fiancé (as he had already paid for a storage unit). Saturday morning 1st thing I confirmed that we would be sticking with our unit and at that time he confirmed the movers would be out to my home at 1:30pm as they had a "small" move that morning. WELL NEEDLESS TO SAY, the movers DID NOT get to my house until 4:30pm. A 3-HOUR delay that threw off my whole personal schedule and caused me to call off from work. NO ONE called me to give me an ETA or let me know what was going on. I had to call Stephen to inquire why I was still just sitting around waiting. He told me twice they should be there in 30-45 minutes and of course they weren't. When they finally arrived there were only 3 movers NOT 4 as I'd requested. The movers were very nice and apologetic and courteous, but at that point it was pointless. They were very fast movers, but not consistent. Some of my furniture got wrapped correctly and some did not. I was told by Stephen and the company's website states that you do not have to empty all drawers, BUT the movers would not wrap or take my drawers until they were emptied. When I mentioned this to them, I was told, "Ma'am we don't move dressers with stuff in them." So needless to say, I had to empty my drawers, which resulted in me missing work again on Sunday to go spend more money on totes and then arrange to get all these heavy totes to storage. So this company actually cost me more money by using their services than I had originally planned. As a bartender, I missed out on my cash by missing work for 2 days to deal with this and I had to spend out more money to go buy totes because of FALSE advertisement. I would not recommend them to anyone. In a city like Atlanta, I'm sure you can find more competitive and professional movers.

Gregory, Michael and Corlando were awesome! They made what would’ve been an otherwise stressful move more calm. Gregory was very responsive when I asked questions prior to the move. They accommodated our special request for no colognes or body sprays due to severe allergies. During part of the unloading process my mother passed out and almost had a seizure and they picked her up and carried her back into the house checking in on her every time they came in to bring stuff from the truck. They were very professional, kind and respectful. They handled our stuff with care and ensured that everything was put where we wanted it to be placed. I would definitely recommend Gregory and his team to anyone who needs moving help. They were wonderful and a great choice for helping with my move.

Scheduled for them to show up Thursday 7/9 at 10am, and they were a no show! Called 3 times before someone picked up the phone. Was informed the movers were having an issue with a piano from another move and would call me to give ETA, but I NEVER received that call. Called 11 more times and NO ONE picked up the phone. HORRIBLE SERVICE and would HIGHLY suggest looking elsewhere for a RELIABLE moving company. We ended up hiring 2 Men & Truck who were able to come same day.

I hired NDR to move us on December 16th. After an initial mix up with the date (my fault) -- which they did a fantastic job with, rearranging their schedule to make sure I was taken care of as I had zero flexibility -- a four man crew showed up on moving day and proceeded to move an entire 3 bedroom house which included 60 boxes and a ton of furniture and loose items, in about 7 hours door to door. Patrick was the crew leader and he was AWESOME. The guys were funny, hard working and a pleasure to work with. They busted their tails all day and took a tremendous amount of stress off of us (as moving tends to do) with their optimism and good humor. The price we paid was more than reasonable and we made sure to take care of the guys too --- they more than earned it. Thanks Patrick for getting us in our new home and thank you Scott for getting us scheduled after my initial panic! Would hire this company again in a heartbeat if I had to move!

Didn’t show within time agreed. In order to not be charged another day with moving truck me and my girlfriend where forced to move everything ourselves where it still sets in garage because she is not able to assist up steps. I informed them that it would only be 3-4 items that I needed help moving. They stated they would still be sending two movers for the hour at their rate. I called few times to check status and arrival time where I was told I would be called back only to be forgot about until I called back and they responded they would be arriving after the agreed time. Maybe it was a busy day but communication goes along way I woulda been pissed had I been charged another day on rental vehicle

Everyone involved was professional, caring, thorough, kind, and great at what they did! I had a couple of concerns before the move, but their customer service was outstanding and put my mind at ease, as well as worked with my crazy schedule without becoming annoyed. Also, they moved my baby grand piano, my baby, and took extremely good care of it! I would HIGHLY recommend Tate the Great!
