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. 

What is the cheapest way to move?

Scheduling your move during the off-season is typically the cheapest way to move. Avoid moving in May, June, July, August or September, when moving company rates are typically much higher. If you’re moving across the country, research how the moving companies in your city charge. You might save money if you hire flat-rate movers instead of hourly movers.  

Of course, you can save money moving if you DIY by renting a moving truck or moving pods. However, be sure to weigh the pros and cons of moving all of your belongings and valuables by yourself. Factor in the cost of a moving truck (including fuel), the cost of moving equipment, the labor involved and the time it will take to complete your move by yourself. 

What do full-service moving companies provide?

Full-service moving companies can help take the stress out of moving by supplying a moving truck and handling your entire move from start to finish. These professional movers can also provide packing services, materials and supplies. Full-service movers also load your belongings into the truck, drive it to your new home, unload the truck and (in some cases) offer to help you unpack your belongings. If you're interested in hiring full-service movers, compare the top-rated movers near you and ask for estimates.

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 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.

I had a very good experience with Tate the Great! There was good communication prior to the move, the pricing was clearly explained, the crew was efficient and helpful. Overall, I would definitely recommend them to anyone moving locally!

This was a fairly stress free moving experience. Moving is very stressful, especially after having had major knee surgery and being limited in what you can physically do. The owner and crew were on time, efficient and just all around great movers. Even their loading and unloading skills were better than some of the well known local companies. In the past, I've paid a lot more for a lot less service. I can't see anyone being unhappy with A-ASAP movers. Quality, value and professionalism. That's what you want when selecting movers and that's what we got.

These guys were awesome. Mike and Bryan took care of our stuff and were very professional. Sharon got us set up and was flexible with our move. We had a local move plus a stop at storage. They even took off a huge load of trash/junk/construction material and a deep freezer. These are hard-working guys who care about their customers. I would highly recommend them.

Falcon needs to do better. I wanted to support this smaller local business. But they need to up the quality of training for movers and actual staff. One of staff showed up high and smelling of marijuana. They didn’t properly wrap my mattresses. Some of my outdoor furniture was a little wet and they stacked it on top of other furniture and then didn’t pay attention and walked it dripping through my home. These little quality control things add up. Then when I called them midway through my move to address, all they offered was a 10% discount. My efforts to get a callback after the move was completed have been fruitless. Very disappointing.

Diendre came to review and provide an estimate followed by Sharon with the quote. On the day of the move, Mervin, Kenneth and Joseph showed up. The surveyed the work, talked to me about their plans and then set about getting the job done professionally. They asked questions, made recommendations and worked as we directed them to. They dis-assembled my Furniture efficiently and didn’t loose a screw. In my new house, they saw new floors and immediately realized that they have to cover the floors. The moves my items in very carefully to make sure they were clean as possible and then cleaned up after that. This the first move I have had where everything went as I had wanted and it came in at the original estimate. For a local city move I would go with them.

Mike is awesome to work with! The crew he brought with him were top notch! I would absolutely hire them again should we move. I interviewed several local companies and a couple on this website, but I didn't feel as comfortable as I did Mike's team. All the workers were extremely careful with our stuff. In fact, there was only 1 wall scuff in the new house. Only 1!!!!! That's pretty flipping amazing in my book. Considering how many times they had to move large furniture upstairs. My old house had real hard wood floors that are easily scratched. Not a single scratch on the floors. HIRE THESE GUYS!
