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.

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.

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. 

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

This was my first time using movers so I wanted to find someone cheap but not too cheap. First off, I was told that the movers would come at 8:30 am (I had to be out of my current house by 12 pm). Around 9:30 I get a call saying that the truck has broken down. They didn't come until 11:30 am. Then it took them 5 hours to move a enough furniture for a 2 bed 2 bath apartment. When we got there. A couple boxes marked fragile had all the contents broken. I will say that the men were friendly and courteous, and I received a small discount for my inconvenience. I will not use this moving company again because they seemed to unreliable and took much longer than quoted.

Update: 12/15/17 This situation remains unresolved. Scott was able to find the original manufacturer of the artwork - great. It's still not repaired, and all I've heard from him is implications that it was cheap (so apparently that made the damage okay). The drywall damage at the old house was never addressed or repaired. After I finished unpacking, I noticed lots of damage to the walls in my new house and several items stolen or missing. Scott said he was not responsible for that. As several people have mentioned in their reviews, Scott & Mike from NDR are very rude and reply to "every" concern by blaming the customer and denying any responsibility. After more than 9 calls between me and 9 calls the day of the move and the days immediately following, Scott still complained that "I" was wrong because I did not give them a chance to attempt to resolve my concerns before I posted a review. As a service member, I've moved multiple times and have never had an experience this horrendous. I don't know how this company stays in business. Absolutely terrible. They started by arriving at 11a for my 8:30 to 9:30 window. The explanation was the hrs are 10-10:30 on Sundays. The lead estimated the job at 2-3 hrs for 2 ppl, and it took 3 ppl 6 hrs. Screws for the bed were left in the house and buried in the rug. The movers tried to hide it and told me the bed was fully assembled. They broke a $1000 piece or glasswork that was taken to the truck unwrapped and leaned on the wall. I was told they would attempt to repair it but not pay to replace it. The walls and furniture were scratched, and Mike tries to overcharge me multiple times, even stating the movers arrived am hour earlier than they had, claiming he was giving me a discount.
