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.

The crew were pros at disassembling my pool table and taking it to storage. Will have them assemble it when I move into my home.

Experience was awful. Three gentlemen showed up for my move. The lead name is Quan I believe. I felt uncomfortable from the beginning due to the fact the lead overly indulged in his feelings about getting a good tip and review. The move had just begun. All items were on ground level packed, boxed(labeled), organized and ready to be moved onto the truck. I explained to the gentlemen what items I would like moved last and what items that were expensive for accessibility and proper handle. However, when it was time to upload the truck Quan had begin to become antsy, impatient. As Quan was moving my things into the storage I walked up only to see that he had dropped a box that said fragile/glass and attempted to stack it as if he didn't drop it. When I questioned him about how he was packing things into the storage unit, the box he became argumentative, belligerent and hostile. Needless to say I had to call his manager and have him removed after he already wasted over 1.5 hour. My storage was in disarray and not enough room for all of my things due to how my things were badly stacked. Movers manager tried to collect for extra time, make excuses for storage and void the fact that his worker had broken one of my expensive vases. Storage size was beyond big enough for stored items. I am sure that I have more broken items in my storage in which I will find out soon . I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY due to the workers they hire. Not to mention the mover Quan had informed me that he just arrived to Georgia the morning of the move from North Carolina on the Megabus (4hour ride).

I hired Here to There Movers for my move from Lawrenceville, GA To North Augusta SC. They were on time, worked hard and efficiently and were very professional. They did a great job of disassembling my furniture and packed everything in my storage unit to maximize the space. I highly recommend using these guys for your moving needs.

I’m giving 1 star only because of how nice the everyone was. But the move was HORRIBLE. I was charged over $620 to move a 2 bedroom apartment into a storage unit!!!! Typically, it has always taken about 2 hours to move me from a 2 bedroom 3rd floor apartment but they took over 4. Mind you, I make sure everything is sorted and organized before they come. Maybe it was the fact that while one was working, the other was on the truck doing whatever the fuck he was doing and vice versa. ALSO, they came with nothing...no tape, no dollies, no padding. They used up all my tape (without asking) and used my sheets and comforters to wrap my items. The truck was too small so they had to put stuff in my car as well as hold a piece of glass in their front seat. And the way they threw the stuff into my car broke my daughters keyboard. I watched them drag my armoire off the truck trying to fit it on a rolling cart when going into the storage. They haphazardly loaded everything into my storage unit. I got a 10 x 20 space and the way they threw my stuff in there I cant even go through to make sure nothing is broken. I wouldn’t be surprised if something was since they were not careful AT ALL with my stuff. At one point one of the guys asked how everything was going and I wanted to yell IT SUCKS but they’re handling my stuff! And plus it was just me and my 12 year old daughter. So again, $600 later (cause they gave me a measly $20 discount for my troubles) my 2 bedroom has been moved into a storage unit. Ridiculous!!!

Jeremy and the "BiG Deal" crew provided us with moving services this past weekend. TREMENDOUS experience! Great young guys; I got to know them a little when we sat down and had lunch, together. Very professional, worked hard...and it was a hard move. They moved us from our basement home in Lawrenceville to a smaller rental home in Auburn; it turned into a 2 trip job due to the amount of contents we have. They never complained, worked to help us put our belongings in the right places and into storage in an upstairs room. First-class group! We will definitely use them again in a few months, when our new home is ready. I would recommend them for any type of moving services...large or small.

I hired him to move. Communication was spotty from the beginning. It was last minute so I felt I was in a bind. They worked hard but when they found out I needed to go to storage their attitude changed. They said it was a 3 man job not 2. I said I would take care of them at the end. They tried to cut corners at the end and didn't put a piece of furniture back together that they took apart. Long story they came up with a bill for 3 people at $25 more an hour than I was quoted for. They didn't have 3 people which if they did it would have not taken 5 hours to move me. Lesson learned but never again.
