This team is great! From being right on time to the final walk through, Dylan and Dillon were punctual, flexible, reasonably priced and communicative, every step of the way. I had quite a few things for them to do. Yet, they took the time to explain how everything would be handled. In fact, their suggestions saved me quite a bit of money. 2 months ago, I had purchased 2 closet racks to be installed. They determined, based on what was already in my closets, that my vision could be accomplished by returning my purchase and instead buying 2 shelves and screws from Home Depot. Thereby, saving me roughly $180. It was also very helpful that they went to Home Depot to pick up what was needed. Finally, I was able to add on a broken garage window pane at the last minute! These guys did an awesome job! I will definitely be a repeat client!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Where can you buy cheap moving supplies?

It’s a wise move to try and save money on moving supplies. If you’re after cheap boxes, blankets, mattress covers and other moving supplies, start by looking online. Some sites allow people to post free or cheap items they no longer need, and moving supplies are frequently on the list. There are also services that sell used cardboard boxes and more. If all else fails, head to your local department store or ask your moving company if they sell supplies.

Where can you get cheap moving boxes?

There are plenty of places you can go to find cheap moving boxes. If you want new boxes, start with large chain retailers that sell moving supplies. However, you can also find cheap or even free deals by heading to other locations. 

Liquor stores receive their merchandise in boxes and may be willing to donate them to you. Grocery stores, bookstores, pet stores and department stores all receive boxes as well. Just remember to always ask for permission before you take any boxes from retailers and stores. 

You can also head to your recycling center to see if there are any boxes available. Or, go online to see if anyone in your neighborhood is trying to get rid of boxes.

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.

 

 

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Sandy Springs cheap moving companies
Thumbtack Customer
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.
