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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Reviews for Macon movers
David G.
Chance and his crew was just one of several movers we called. He was also the only mover respond back and worked with us on times and dates, even after normal business hours. Chance and his crew arrived on time, did an exceptional job of moving and they helped us separate our move into storage and going with us. This company does business like business should be done. They care, they are professional, and most of all, they treat you right. Mid State movers will be my only moving company both personally and professionally from now on.

They got the job done, but they did not come prepared with everything that was needed for the job. It could have been my lack of communication with them. They were great with communication, but if you use them, be sure to let them know if you need boxes or a wrap for clothes. Being unfamiliar with moving, it could have been my fault. The price was good and they gave an accurate quote of the cost!! Nothing was damaged nor lost in the move. I would definitely use them again.

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.

Fast and good quality service. The process to schedule a move was quick. Chance was very responsive throughout. Michael and Hunter arrived early and had my items ready to unload before I arrived. They were gentle with the unload and adhered to instructions. Great service! I recommend.

Will look to do business with them again in the near future!

Jared was great! He did everything he said he was going to do, and his price was very reasonable. While moving appliances he was gentle and there were no scuffs on anything. Everything was secured for the drive and he figured out how to puzzle piece evrything i had into a 10X10 foot storage unit. He communicates well in advance and was finished faster than I thought possible. Great experience over all and I will be using him again!

Unfortunately, I have to give one star and I love getting the opportunity to support black men in business, so this was tough. Things were good for the most part. I'm giving one star because the floor got very badly damaged. To my surprise, they don't carry insurance and didn't even offer to reduce the price for the damage. The move ultimately took 1 hour and 5 minutes but I paid $315. I had people who were going to do it for 120/hr plus a very modest fuel charge.
