Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.

 

 

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.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

We hired 404 Movers for our move in January. They came despite snow and ice. Everything was wrapped up nicely and nothing broke or got scratched during the move. Very friendly and professional. We highly recommend them!

These guys are awesome. We had to reschedule from last Friday from all of the rain, but I had something pop up the day of the move and needed to move it back one hour and they made it work. Derrick, Jeff and Syd all did an awesome job and worked hard and made the move fun. If you are moving I recommend these guys!

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.

This was the easiest move I’ve here had the movers showed up on time and extremely professional and ready to work my move was a bit complicated seeing that 2 separate homes were combined which meant multiple stops and they handled that with ease I will be recommending this company to everyone I know I need of service....thanks again

This has been the best move I’ve ever had by far! The entire crew was professional, friendly and hard working the whole time. I will certainly refer them to all my friends and use them again if I ever have to move again. They were on time, did a walk through first to understand what needed to be moved, they wrapped what needed to be wrapped and asked questions to seek clarity. Brock and his crew did a great job. Thank you for moving my family and I to our new home!

I had an excellent experience from beginning to end with Mitchie and the staff of 404Movers. Mitchie contacted me quickly, got me an estimate quickly and patiently answered my questions. He communicated with me throughout. I had previously contacted a moving company because they offered discounts to me as an employee at my job. They proclaimed to "roll out the red carpet for you.” They did not. I had to call several times and when they finally did respond, the "discount" was still more than the average person is able to pay. My move with 404: seamless. The movers were on time and professional. They did not "slow around" trying to "milk" time. They were working hard, yet they were very attentive to the care of my furniture. Hands down, I would use this moving company again and refer them to anyone who requires a mover. Sincerely, Nandi

I only gave a 2 because your all responded to my service request within 2hr of me putting it in. However; after calling as I was asked to do; I was where I was moving too and from and when would I like to move? I responded from Smyrna to Douglasville (A couch and love seat) and I would like to move ASAP! I was told then “ We don’t have AVAILABILITY “ I’m assuming they are booked for the remainder of 2021.

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!
