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.

Contacted the company due to a last minute moving job - they were incredibly helpful, and contacted me immediately (on a Saturday night, no less). Within an hour, I was set up for a 9am move the next day. The two movers were incredibly polite, friendly and conscientious during the whole move -- could not have asked for a better team and would highly recommend Next Door Relocators!!!!

Moses and his team were excellent to work with. I had a very last minute request for a short and simple job and Moses responded promptly, showed up on time, and was professional and courteous. I would definitely recommend Hope and Love Movers.

We were in immediate need of a mover for a small job after the mover we’d booked cancelled at the last minute. Tiff responded promptly, adjusted her schedule to accommodate us, and communicated well throughout. She and her partner Mason showed up on time and worked efficiently. They were professional and personable throughout. Highly recommend.

Metro Moving was the best choice! They were able to fit me in last minute and were amazing with my complicated move that was even harder since the apartment building didn’t have my elevator and loading dock reserved properly for me. They arrived exactly on time and moved my boxes and furniture so quickly - and my apartment has the longest hallways in the entire city of Atlanta!! They were kind, engaging and fun to work with! Definitely will be recommending them to EVERYONE!!

They arrived early and got the whole job done ahead of schedule. They paid close attention to details. They were friendly, professional, super polite and very efficient. We will definitely be using their services again in the future!

I was so impressed with Vincent & his team! They were able to accommodate a last minute move request w/ professionalism, speed & efficiency. Vincent talked me through every step of the process. They literally took care of everything & made sure I was happy with the end result. I would definitely use them again & recommend to anyone in need of moving services. I was initially skeptical since you never know what to expect online. These guys are the real deal & I'm so grateful to have booked their services. Save yourself a headache & contact them today!

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! AVOID Mitchie at all costs !! Here is what happened..This guy gave me a contract for $95 per hour after I asked him to give me his best rate. HE SIGNED THE CONTRACT...Two days back, he called me and said he made a MISTAKE in the pricing and hiked it to $129...Since my move was for this SATURDAY, I had no option but to sign..HE ALSO SIGNED IT yesterday and sent it back..I did request him to see if he can reduce the $ a little- although I knew I could do nothing if he refused. This morning, this guy called and CANCELLED the move !!!! He said he felt since I was asking for discounts, I will not be happy with the move. When I told him that he was literally hanging me out to dry cancelling this at the last minute, he could not care less..This guy Mitch looked professional, but cannot be trusted at all..DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE OF even wasting a phone call on him and his services; I am concerned now since he came to my house last week in the pretext of "planning" the move and took some pictures...not comfortable with that given what I am finding out about this guy... He seems like a guy with absolutely zero conscience and no concern for the customer..all he cares about is how to make an extra $ at the expense of folks who trusted him to uphold the contract he signed and make their move simpler... AVOID THE HASSLE I AM GOING THRU NOW, CALL A BETTER MOVING COMPANY..DO NOT USE 404 MOVERS IF YOU WANT PEACE OF MIND...THIS HAS BEEN A DISASTROUS EXPERIENCE...

The one star to me represents negative 100 stars. 2 words describe this company - Bait and Switch. I was just contacted by a lady from this company about how my move went. Overall experience was that I felt scammed. Originally "Scott L***s" who stated he was the owner quoted me a flat rate of $636.00 and also mentioned he would wave the trip fee "though its not something they normally do." - More on Scott later. So days before the move I contacted them by phone and on thumbtack and so far no confirmation of the move on the date, as I booked weeks prior. No return messages, nothing. Especially via here on Thumbtack. So on the Move day, the movers are a no show at 9am which was the set schedule. I call Scott to find out what is going on and advise him the drivers are not here yet. His first response was "Well the move is charged when they show up." Im thinking to myself what the heck does this have to do with the price of sliced bread in China. Then he goes on to say they are at a gas station filling up the truck and will be there in a few minutes. 45 minutes go by and still nothing. I call Scott again, no answer. Then the driver of the truck calls me and tells me he hasn't left yet. That the ETA is another 48 minutes - his words; "38 minutes on the map + 10 minutes for filling up the gas" I said weren't you just at the gas station 45 min ago...he said "i dont know why they told you that, we haven't left yet, we needed to load the truck prep, etc.." At this point I am stressed and frustrated because I have utilities, appliances showing up at my new house and needed to be there as well. So after scrambling to get coverage in the last minute, they finally show up. The load went fine, but they were working slow as molasses. Instead of bringing in 3 or 4 light boxes stacked, they would do one at a time. Then have some discussion outside. After the truck was loaded, I waited another 35 min for them to actually get driving. (Obviously they are milking the job). Scott (on the phone) mentioned weeks ago during booking that "Other moving companies wont look out for your hardwood floors... we lay down protective material (Ram board or something) to prevent scratches. I am thinking fantastic, and felt confident in selecting this moving company. So when the drivers show up, the unloading went ok into the basement as the entry was outside direct. When entering the house, they didn't lay anything on the floor. I said excuse me but can you please put something on the floor to prevent potential damage. They looked at each other puzzled. Then one of them asked if they can tear apart a big box I had from a new piece of furniture. I said absolutely, feel free. (So much for Scotts bs statement(s).) I have to pause and say the movers themselves were stellar in personality, professionalism and were very friendly. Not something you normally see in the moving industry. Due to their personalities I overlooked the scratches on the wall they caused. Hours later the move is completed and what was originally quoted at $636.00 is now suddenly $865.00. I was adamant on speaking to the owner / Scott (well today I found out he wasn't the owner though he claimed to be.) I asked about the bait and switch, and he was pretty much sticking to some hidden charges that weren't mentioned before. What set off this experience as the worst was the final blackmail of "you're paying the $865.00 or the Police will show up" - At this point we had a heated exchange, and he tells me he was a former prosecutor as if that had some authority on scamming me in the move. After calming down, I tipped the drivers, and paid the blackmailed amount. In the end they scammed me with the bait and switch "New York gangster move" but this honest, negative review will be shared here, google reviews, bbb, and a few others." I was going to initiate a charge-back, but after talking to their rep today, I felt sorry for this company, and Scott and his failed 3rd rate prosecutor career so I figured he can use the scammed money towards his rent. I do not recommend using this company. They butter you up throughout the move for a 5 star review when the experience is -100 stars. You're more than welcome to contact me and I will tell you what their employees are even saying and suggesting where to go instead of this company. So if you are considering Next Door Movers, look next door for alternative better experiences. Don't be fooled by the 5 star reviews on this site...its fishy. I am sure I am not alone. Look at other review sites as well and you'll see similar experiences to mine. But if you do want to hire a moving company that shows up hours late, threatens you with prior prosecutor career experience, quote you one thing, bill you another, scratch up your walls, and hold you hostage - Next door re-locators is the way to go!
