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.

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’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. 

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 do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

I used Pack it Up Moving for my move from Savannah, GA to South Florida. Tori was very helpful in the days leading up to the move and then two guys who actually did the move were great the entire time. Would definitely recommend them.

I had to move to Kentucky from Georgia and I was on a budget, so I was constantly delaying my moving until I found this company. In just 8 days, I was moved down there and I have nothing but good words about this movers. I loved their organization.

My experience with Keep It Moving was simply outstanding! The movers were punctual each day of my two day move, efficient and professional. They went above and beyond to ensure my moving process went well. The office staff followed up with me every step of the way and made sure I was pleased from start to finish. I will continue to patronize Keep It Moving for all of my moving needs. This is a wonderful family-oriented, customer satisfaction driven company!

I am going to highly recommend Low Country Movers because they will get the job done. I needed to move my family's treadmill from our garage to a second floor bedroom and Low Country Movers made it happen. I am so grateful because they were quick to respond to our request for service and both movers Greg and Thomas were very respectful and listened to what needed to be done. I sent them a picture of what needed to be moved and I was given a quote on the cost. I added a picture of the treadmill because some treadmills do require a lot more work by movers because it might have to be disassembled before moving upstairs and then reassembled after it has been moved to it's new location; so I do recommend having the instructions available and maybe to inform the movers to bring tools or you can have your tools available just in case they are needed to make the job easier to complete. Remember to call Low Country Movers for any small or large moving services. Thank you so much movers Greg and Thomas for a job well done.

I originally moved from Atlanta to Savannah, Ga in June and used a very large, very expensive moving company. That move was a nightmare. I purchased a house here in Savannah, and contracted with Ready to Move for this second move this year. What a difference. James was very cooperative when I had to change the move date because of illness. Mike, Glen and Victor were very professional. They called when there was a wreck on the highway to tell me they would be a little delayed. They worked throughout the day to make the move as quickly and smoothly as possible. Best of all they were cheerful and upbeat, and actually made the move enjoyable for me. Thanks James and the crew for a great job. The price was great too! Only possible issue is that I have not yet received my paid itemized receipt.

It was hard for me to leave my home town but I had no options but to relocate. It was hard for me to trust any movers because of my previous experience. But this time my luck clicked and I got the best possible service from these movers. They did exceptionally well to move all my belongings without any damage and they were simply brilliant to ensure a very smooth and timely move. I am very impressed with Pick Up Movers.

Troy and Kevin were great!! They got everything we wanted moved for us quickly and efficiently, all while making the move fun for us! I was so glad that they were able to come move us. We were originally supposed to have a bunch of friends come help us on Saturday, but that didn't happen. I called in a bind and I was assured by Jamol that they would be at our house on Sunday morning. Our move was just a temporary move while our home gets the necessary repairs done, that were caused by Hurricane Matthew. When the time comes and we get to return to our house I will definitely be calling Elite Movers and requesting Troy and Kevin!

Hi. We hired Savannah and Sons to move our parents on Saturday, Feb 26. This is the best moving company we’ve ever worked with. The quote was fair and there were no surprises when we got the final invoice. The movers were on time, very professional and friendly, and so fast (wow!). Nothing was damaged or missing during the move. If you are in the Savannah area please give them a try. You won’t be disappointed. 😀

These gentlemen thoroughly impressed us. We had never used movers before and had a degree of anxiety about the process. We have a very large amount of antique furniture and belongings that needed to be moved, these guys were polite, personable and packed and moved our belongings with great care and speed. One of the trucks broke down on the way and slowed the arrival time down, but they made up for the lost time with teamwork and hustle. I highly recommend Elite Movers.

The Pick Up Movers were very attentive and did a great job from start to finish. Their rep was very quick to setup an appointment and offered me the best package that suited my requirements. He was very responsive and very informative. I really appreciate the attention to detail the movers showed handling my stuff. I will be using them again if I have to move a long distance again. Thanks Pick Up Movers for the dedication and hard work.
