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.

If I could give them a ten, I would. Its hard to find professional movers these days but these guys are just not in it for the money. They make sure they give exceptional customer experience. I was truly blessed to find these guys because it was last minute. They were on time and communicated with me from the time I contacted them for an estimate until the day after, when they called to check on me and make sure I was satisfied with the move. Great job Mitch and team!

The movers got started right on time, 10am. However they stopped for snack breaks, to have personal conversations, to give lessons to each other on how to move one item or another. It took a scrawny, height-challenged crew of three men to pack up the exact same number of items, from TWO DIFFERENT locations, then deliver the items room-to-room in 3-hours flat. It took taggbox movers 2.5 hours just to pack our truck. The movers left 5 min before my husband and I, but hadn't arrived at the new when we got there. In route to our new house, the movers stopped for a "bathroom break" according to one guy, and "cigarettes and sunflower seeds" according to what a different guy told my husband. It took them 30 minutes to arrive after we did. One mover heard me tell my husband we were working on a 4-hour move budget before leaving the old apartment, when they finally got to the new house we were confronted about time management, had a pointless convo about their gas station break and wasted more time. Upon moving in furniture, they decided our queen sized box spring was too big and said they won't move it upstairs unless we sign a waiver. We decided against it, they left it in the kitchen in front of our pantry door. At 1:45pm with 3/4 of the items moved into the house, Sharon, the owner, confronted me on the phone about how dare I tell her "movers to stop at the 4 hour mark with half of [our] stuff still on the truck!" I told her they took a 30 minute break between houses and that 2:30pm would be the 4-hour mark, not 2pm. Told her about their lounging about and personal conversations. She said she'd bill us for 4-hour regardless of how long the move took. GREAT! Sadly, their mover, Brian, exclaimed repeatedly that our washing machine was falling apart as he carried it up (we thought we'd be able to fix it, but it is now leaking). And they saved the heaviest item (that I exclaimed repeatedly would be difficult ) for last. In an attempt to carry up our 7 ft tall armoire - NEVER MENTIONING A WAIVER THIS TIME - they scraped a nasty hole in our stairwell wall, scratched our Brazilian walnut floor, and left the armoire in the living room - along with a quarter of the items we moved. Just abandoned it all in the living room, had us sign papers acknowledging damage and left. Sharon sent her nephew Sammy, I believe a co-owner in the business, and he and my husband not only moved the queen-sized box spring up to the second floor, but took all the other items up our 3-story house, that their initial movers abandoned through our first floor. Sammy proceeded to "fix" the floor and wall. The floor has a wonderful gloss, but for all his hard work, it's still scratched. He came back on two occasions to work on the wall, and although he worked really hard, and it looks as decent as it's going to look without building a new wall, I suppose, I STILL can see the repaired damaged area under his fresh paint and spackling.All the while Sammy was repairing the wall to the best of his ability, dishing out customer service like mighty mouse come to save the day, MS. SHARON HOWEVER, was harassing me to pay the final balance of my move, yelling at me on the phone so loudly that her assistant Aarons had to take the phone and be the liason from that point forward. I feel like they should have eaten the balance due to the damage their movers caused our house, and because my husband ended up having to help Sammy move 1/4th of our items up to the 2nd and 3rd floors. But ONLY BECAUSE Sammy DID put in so much effort to correct the issue, and was exceedingly nice, I went ahead and paid the balance in full via paypal. Their boxes are the most convenient thing ever, especially for someone trying to lessen their carbon footprint, BUT they didn't drop them off on the day I requested (they were a day late, and only scheduled it after I called asking "what's up"), and they TOLD US Sharon was NOT keeping her word by letting us use them for two weeks, but that they'd be picking them up one week from our move in date. I waited for them until 2pm on Saturday June 4th, they never called or showed up. I finally got a call from them this morning saying they want to get them today, June 6, less than 24 hr notice. So NO, I cannot recommend taggbox nor would I use their services again, though I give a big major shout out to Sammamish for being the MVP! A
