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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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 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.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

My wife and I used them to move into our new house. They were wonderful. They were efficient and they wrapped everything to protect it. This was the best movers we have had and we’ve moved a bit! We would definitely hire them again. I’d recommend Eboni and her team for whoever needs help moving at a great rate and extremely professional movers.

The Movers did a great job with moving our 3-bedroom house! They took apart and reassembled our difficult furniture, wrapped everything nicely, and loaded and unloaded very efficiently and carefully. If you are looking for professional, honest, and skilled movers at a good price I would highly recommend The Movers and would use them again in the future.

This was a smooth and simple move, thanks to the guys from 300 Movers. They were professional, personable, and did a quick and thorough job. I don’t ever want to move again, but if I do, I’ll definitely use this company again!

Let’s say I had to take time to do this review. As a business owner myself I’m very disappointed. For starters I went off of the ratings from this app and the movers were available same day so I thought that was even greater. During the move the movers stagnated with the timing which seemed on purpose. One of the movers seemed new which was fine but made moving items more difficult therefore, me and my family member’s had to assist. They were only able to move certain items and I had to return the next day myself to move the other 70% and in the process of them moving items property was damaged. After expressing horror stories about moving companies this will be my last time utilizing this company as this was not the best experience. Hopefully they have success in the future with other clients but I’ve provided photos just to show. Smh

Way too expensive. Over $600 to move a 15' storage unit two miles. Workers not incentivized to move quickly or safely.

Brandon, Alex and David were a fantastic moving team. They were available and responsive with short notice and a fair price. They took care of moving my family into our home and was a huge help with a challenging move. They saw it through to the end and were careful with moving our things. They were respectful, kind and helpful. Brandon even went above the call of duty and helped to organize the truck so everything would fit. Will definitely hire for future moves again. Thank you!

Thomas and all the guys at Tate the great were very helpful. I contracted with them for two moves (once into storage and then back out of storage) and they did a great job. The movers moved much faster than expected. I highly recommend them!

Have moved more than 15 times and this move was at the top of the list in terms of service, price, professionalism, timeliness, trust, and overall satisfaction. Ronnie Morris is a consummate professional and delivered above and beyond. If you need to move within Atlanta, go no further...

The move was for a one bedroom apartment. I hired two men. There was a lot of back and forth with different people each time to schedule. Once, when I called to confirm, he told me he was eating lunch and asked that I call back. I received a two hour window for arrival. On the day of the move, I spoke with two people who tried to get me to change my move to another date. They ended up sending a different crew who arrived 3 hours late from the end of the window. They did keep in touch the entire time but it was clear from each call, they wanted to reschedule my move to another date. Thankfully, I was compensated with a 3rd mover which turned out to be needed anyway since the location I moved to was very difficult to get into. The movers that arrived were nice. I must say Nick worked really hard the entire time and his efforts did not go unnoticed. One of the movers must have been new or a little less experienced. After my boxes were on the truck, the supervisor spent time rearranging them. I thought this was less efficient to move the boxes two times. I call it working harder, not smarter. To their credit, it was my first move with professionals so maybe that's how it works. Overall, the move went as expected and their rates are great. If you have all day to move and can be flexible with your time and date, 404 Movers will get the job done whenever they arrive. Next time, I'll hired 4-5 men to lessen the move time and I can just sit and watch.

Jasean and his associate did a very professional job moving my apartment. They moved my one bedroom apartment from Vinings to Buckhead in less than 3 hours. I would definitely choose them again if I ever move within Atlanta.

Moving is SOO stressful, so you can only hope that the moving company you choose doesn't add to an already stressful situation. Mitch at 404 Movers is the model example of a business owner who takes pride in the company he has created. He was SO professional and took the utmost of care in answering all of my questions, responding to emails right away, arriving on time, and moving all of our extremely heavy furniture in a very timely manner. Initially, I was a little apprehensive about choosing a company I had never heard of before to move my entire life, but I am so incredibly glad I took a chance on Mitch and 404 Movers. My expectations were completely exceeded! Although I hope to not ever move again, if I do I will be calling 404 Movers once more. Thank you Mitch!

I called Elite Movers for a same day move after a bad experience with another mover the day before. They were very accommodating and within a couple of hours they were completing my move in 90 degree temps. I am extremely satisfied with their professionalism and prompt service. I will recommend them over and over again. Thanks so much Elite for helping me with such short notice!

We had a terrible experience with this moving company. While we were promised the “white glove service” they promote, we received anything but. Based on their recommendations we arranged for packers to come the day before the move. Unfortunately, they sent the movers the day before and the movers suggested they could both pack and move us. While the crew was very kind and helpful, they were clearly not packers and our move became a 17 hour debacle that ended in broken and damaged furniture, missing pieces/parts, messes of items strewn in boxes, and by 4 AM, the guys rightfully had nothing left in them to finish placing furniture and boxes in the correct rooms leaving me to figure that out on my own. This was a dumpster fire of a move and added so much stress to something that should have been managed much more professionally.
