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.

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. 

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 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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

Reviews for Peachtree City movers
Thumbtack Customer
Chris and his associate moved quite a bit of heavy furniture throughout our three story home. He was extremely responsive and flexible when we were establishing the date and time of the move; they were both very professional and efficient during the move, and they even fixed a piece of furniture that was damaged by other movers in a prior move. We would very highly recommend Chris & Valcin's Moving!!!!

I contacted TRG moving to help my father move during the COVID19 pandemic. I was coordinating this from outside the state and wanted to make sure my father was safe during his move. They were very responsive throughout the whole process. There were some logistical issues that complicated the move but TRG managed these very well and even sent out a third person to help get the move done without overcharging us. This was a local move and no items were damaged or missing. We would hire them again if needed - Excellent communication and service!

I moved from a one bedroom apartment to a 2+ story townhouse. The move took about five hours. Arrival time was prompt and the guys worked steady throughout the move. I had one slightly damaged candle holder, but other than that all went well. They wrapped my mirrors, furniture, wall hangings, etc. with care. I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for a great moving company.

The movers did a decent job with loading and unload process, but I felt they were in some sort time crunch mode as they were trying to execute the job, despite me hiring them per hour rate. Movers did not carry any power tools and instead chose manual assemble disassemble tools which increased the overall time of move

Our two movers were extremely professional, courteous and kind. They managed to unload our truck in the time frame they quoted, and were always polite and diligent. I am very impressed with the professionalism and manor in which these two men carried themselves, and how delicately they handled our belongings. Thank you both so much for such an incredible job and a wonderful moving experience. I will hire them again for sure when we are ready to move...in a few years. LOL!

Setting up the move was extremely easy. Ronnie called to tell me he was going to be 30 minutes late. Ronnie and the guys arrived when he said. They completed our move within the estimated time and placed the furniture where we asked. He and his crew were very amicable! They also hooked up our washer and dryer!

Jason and his moving crew were fantastic! They worked quickly and efficiently, and were three of the nicest guys I've ever met. In fact, we were so satisfied that we have already hired them to move our belongings out of storage and into our new home after we close. Additionally, my new husband has hired them for a third job moving his belongings into our new home the following weekend. I can't say enough about how pleased we are with their work. We can hardly wait to see them again in a few weeks! 10 out of 10!

Great trio team. They were professional yet personal. I’m not the beat packed/mover, but they took care of my needs. Furniture was handled delicately. Team took the time to line the driveway to ensure no oil spills on the driveway.

We needed our 16' truck unloaded and everything placed either downstairs or upstairs. Chris and Twan did an outstanding job. They were both friendly and professional. We will hire them again when we move again. :)
