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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Macon movers

We had a HUGE move, and they did everything in a swift manor. Very professional, and even brought in a few extra guys to speed the process along. Not only did we move two houses into one, but they also moved our kids trampoline, wood play set and basketball goal. I highly recommend this moving company.

They responded to my request within an hour of my posting on Thumbtack. They arrived when they said they would, they were professional and efficient. I needed movers for a small move-just moving a refrigerator and a very heavy desk from my house to my parents house twenty miles away. I would use them again and I would recommend them highly!!

I am so thankful I found this company to move my things from Macon to Columbus. This was the first time I used movers after years of moving on my own. These guys worked so quickly and efficiently and they were friendly and very nice as well! The company is affordable too, which I really appreciated as a student. Great company and will definitely hire again in the future!

I've hired several moving companies in my life and MoveCo by far has been the best. I had a delay in my move and Tim worked with me and went out of his way to get the job done. They were very personable and professional. I will definitely hire them again.

MoveCo was great to work with. This was the first time I actually hired out a move and it went great. The guys arrived right on time and had everything loaded up within an hour and in my new place by lunch. I would recommend them to anyone and plan to use them on my next move.

I'm a 26 Year Marine Veteran who has had to move around the country, and through-out the world. This time after being retired I had to move my mother from Plant Street - to - Mercer University in Macon GA. I was looking for a great company that was professional and courteous. After speaking with five companies in the area I ended up with two final companies to decide on and after getting a quick response from Mrs. April Swanner talking with her about the importance having someone who would treat my mother and her belongings with respect. She assured me that they would take care of her and she understands wanting someone who would treat people and property with respects especially Older people (I.E.) Parents. She sent 3 movers to my mothers apartment on 7/11/2016 at 0930 right on time. The young men listened to what needed to go and got started quickly and efficiently. Once arriving at new location they unloaded everything and put everything that they took apart back together with no problems and my mother didn't have to touch a thing this was her first time ever experiencing movers to relocate her. I want to thank the Swanner's and there 3 man crew for allowing her to experience a company that displayed professional care on her first ever move and giving me peace of mind that my mother was taken care of. This is a young company that is going to expand quickly with the leadership of the Swanner's. Thank you MoveCo Relocation Services. I wish you guys would go after Government Contracts for local moves I know you would make difference to service members and there families. A Rated Moving Company Sent from Xfinity Connect Mobile App

Could be better: - I was scheduled for a 2:00 visit, but the movers came at 5:00 -They were supposed to drive the truck but they acted as if they didn't know. They couldn't because one of the movers didn't have a license. - They talked too much when they should have been working. Well: - They apologized for their tardiness. - They were willing to compromise on the rate, due to their error. - They let me decide on a rate and agreed to it. They added a few more discounts; subtracted the travel fee and 30 minutes from the time.

This review is for everyone who sees Aiken's 5 star rating and thinks "this is too good to be true." IT'S NOT. Aiken's is that good, and it's true. A two man team came 70miles for my 2BR apartment move. I know, I know.....Ain't nobody got time for that! But Aikens made the time for it. Ronnie saw us as people in need of help, not as a mere job to be done. That's commitment, that's character, that's care. And yes, the quality and professionalism of their work is equisite - as you should already know by the other rave reviews. A huge thank you to Aikens Moving! God Bless.
