Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Should I buy moving insurance?

Your homeowners or renters insurance policy may or may not protect your belongings if they get lost or damaged during a move. If you’re moving valuable items, or if you’re moving a great distance, it could be a good idea to invest in moving insurance.

Interstate movers are required to offer you full value protection and released value protection to help reimburse you in case of damage or loss. If you’re moving within your state, check with your state’s consumer affairs agency to see if your state has rules and requirements regarding moving insurance and valuation coverage.

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. 

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

Best. Day. Ever! These guys were great. Positive personalities, awesome. Paris and James were intelligent, hilarious, and great movers. This company is built for opportunity and that shows through their employees. You can tell they love and respect their company and that makes for impeccable, organized, and easy to work with people. Upstanding gentlemen with families of their own, they get it. I would recommend them to anyone. For reference we used a 3 man team. Everything was wrapped thoroughly, nothing was damaged, and considering they moved us out of a condo with 4 flights of stairs, impressive timing.

They move so quick! They were respectful and fast. They were really great guys. Only had one small thing broken which is way better than any other move I have had. I highly recommend them. They worked with my schedule and I really appreciated that. If you have a choice please pick this company! You will not be sorry.

I had arranged to move on a Saturday, but the truck was in an accident on the way to my house. The company did try their best to accommodate. We scheduled for the next day instead for 1:30pm. The next day comes and the driver calls to let me know they won't be there until 2:30pm. I was very frustrated because I just wanted to move and get it over with. The movers didn't show up until 3pm. They did work very quickly and efficiently loading and unloading. I was also given a discount for the inconvenience from the day before.

Ronnie and his crew arrived as scheduled and ready to work. I can't say more about this company, I was moved in record time. The pricing was as discussed, no unexpected fees. The quality, value, professionalism is exceptional. I would totally recommend RLMJ for any services. Thank you!!!

This is the worst moving company that I have ever dealt with in my life. You have one mover being lazy and complaining how much we had and complaining what goes upstairs. He was very unprofessional that he was on the phone during the whole. They also damaged my furniture they do not want to fix. When they came out to assess the damage Jessica brought her kid and was unprofessional. They do not communicate with you. If i could give them a 0 I would.

Faith Moving Company moved me in Jan 2019. First they were not on time which I didn’t get too upset and because it was cold and I understand people have circumstances. He said he was just getting out of church. Jason came with two other guys to move me from my apartment. I lived on the 3rd floor. It took them a long time to dissemble my furniture and mind you, my furniture was pretty much brand new. I let that slide even though they didn’t have the proper equipment. Then they had a small U-haul truck that they rented. I let him know previously the size of my 2 bedroom apartment that was fully furnished and I had a storage building with furniture as well. Well needless to say, the truck could not hold all of my furniture and since it took so long. I had my fiancé rent a Uhaul to remove the rest of the furniture. We finally get to my new home and the two men drop my entertainment system that I only had for 6 months, there was a huge chip in the system. They also dropped my daughter’s drawer and it chipped. Brand new bedroom set that I only had for 3 months. I notified the owner. He came over acting as if he was upset and that he was going to file a claim with his insurance. He never did! And he stopped answering my phone calls. I was disgusted. Thankfully, I knew someone that repaired furniture. But the owner whom claims that he is a Christian is not a man of integrity. I tried to support a small black business, but it really wasn’t worth it. I moved all the way from California to Georgia and used a moving company and not ONE thing was broken or damaged. Meanwhile I move 10 minutes away and major damage is done to my furniture. Don’t use this company! I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone I know because honestly the man probably doesn’t have insurance for your furniture, he just says he does. Because if he did, he would file the claim for the wrong his company done. There are honest people out there but this company isn’t! Just a warning to look elsewhere!

Impolite, rude and unfriendly. Movers walked in without introducing who they were and without providing their name. Multiple items were damaged due to their lack of proper care, or not loading and unloading items correctly. My items were just thrown in a truck as if it was trash and were not unloaded with the best care or unloaded to the appropriate room marked on boxes. Damages were made to my door and walls. Time was stolen from me, when receiving quote I was insured they were able to complete my move within the three hour minimum. This company advised me how “quick” they move, well that was a lie because each mover would take one little or small item at a time to load the truck hence stealing time and prolonging when unnecessary for the amount of items I had just to make more money from me. It was bad I ended up having to move my own items on and off the truck because how slow they were moving.These movers did not make me feel safe with my items at any point during my move, I continuously had to watch these movers with my stuff as they would leave valuable items unattended. Also when I would address them about not being ok or comfortable with the way my items were being loaded or unloaded I got nothing but eye rolls and attitudes with talking behind my back or mumble under the breath. Again they were extremely rude. I did not get a quality move for the price I paid. I would never again book these movers or recommend them to anyone. I’m convinced the positive reviews on this app are fake and written by the owner.

I booked my move online and followed up with a phone call because I had a additional questions. During that phone call I was informed that the original time I requested (10:30am) would not work and was asked to move it earlier in the day, so we rescheduled for 9am. The morning of the move, 9am hits and I have yet to receive a call from anyone stating that they were on their way; so I call the main number and explain my issue, the gentleman I spoke to checked on my movers and informed me that they were having truck issues and should be calling me any minute. Another hour goes by and still no call, so I call back at 10:30 and get the same response of truck issues, but they should be on their way shortly. While trying to call back yet again at 11 (because I still had no movers), Jeff (a supervisor/manager) calls me to check on the progress of my move. I inform him that no one has shown up yet, he seems genuinely shocked and puts me on hold to call the movers, who did not initially answer his call. When Jeff does get in contact with them, he also tells me of the truck issues and says that the movers assigned to me were running behind and wouldn't be able to get to me until about 1:30pm and asks if that is ok. I agreed because I really did not have a choice as I needed my belongings moved that day, but did explain that I booked the move for the morning to avoid the heavy Atlanta weekend afternoon traffic and minimize costs as much as possible. I receive a call from my movers at 1pm stating that they are unloading a house and that I'm their next stop. They were given a window of 12pm-2pm for my house (even though I reserved a 9am time slot) and called to say it would be closer to the 2pm side. I guess the unloading the previous house took longer than expected because they finally showed up at 3:30pm. I found out later that these gentleman weren't even the movers who were originally scheduled to come get my stuff, they were a different crew who was sent my details electronically around 11am. The movers, Jay and Don, were absolutely amazing! They worked quickly and efficiently. They were very careful with my belongings taking care to wrap everything to ensure its safety during the move. If I could give the actual movers 5 stars, I would because they are more than deserving. I appreciated their concern when I explained my issue with my move time, they apologized repeatedly, which is more than I got from my calls to the office. They were very friendly, professional and had a great attitude. They are truly an asset to this company. My move took just over 6 hours, two of those hours the truck was stuck in the terrible traffic due to road closures around Atlanta. I cannot blame the traffic on them, but I chose to schedule my move in the morning to try and avoid this situation. I am very disappointed that I had such a frustrating experience with this move. There was a complete breakdown in communication with what is supposed to be a legitimate business. I waited 6 and a half hours for my movers and I was the one constantly initiating contact. I booked 404 Movers because of the price and great reviews, choosing to ignore the bad reviews I saw; however, the bad reviews proved to be more than true in my situation. I will not be using 404 Movers again in the future, and I cannot, in good conscience, recommend them to anyone else.

My husband and I hired them for moving (50+ miles) on 2/15/2020. They were very punctual- they even showed up earlier! They were very polite and professional. Also they were very reasonably priced. We got quotes from 5 different companies and they had the best pricing by far. They worked really hard to get the job done as soon as possible. We felt very blessed to hire them and we definitely will hire them again.

These guys were AWESOME!!! First, there an issue that I had personally (nothing to do with the company) and thought I would have to reschedule. Gilbert reached out to me told me they would still be available on the scheduled date and there was no need to cancel or worry. The day of the move, they (Gilbert & Harry) arrived promptly, and immediately started to work. Nothing was damaged, they assembled a few items for me and were done in record time. I had a few extra minutes of time left (I had agreed to a specific time window). Rather than simply leaving ahead of schedule, Gilbert asked if there were any other items that needed to me moved or placed. THAT is excellent customer service! They both went ABOVE & BEYOND. Truly exceeded my expectations!! Thanks AK LOGISTICS for a job well done!
