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. 

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. 

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.

I was doing some spring cleaning and moving things to a storage and to a donation store. Communication was wonderful, the two workers were professional and moved my items quickly. I would recommend Midas Moving for your small or large move.

Exceptional movers!! This was our first time hiring movers and must we say we picked the right moving company to go with. BIG DEAL Movers did a great job moving my items in and out of storage. They were patient, quick, professional and knowledgeable on how to get the job done right with no damages on their furniture. They wrapped our furniture so wouldn't break or get scratched on truck or during move. The movers came within the expected time frame. They never once stopped to take a break. I must say if we ever move again we will be using them again. Price was really reasonable. Thank you BIG DEAL Movers I definitely recommend them!

I would not hire this company if I had to move again. The movers were nice guys and worked hard however after my move, I found damages to my things that I did not see the day of moving. I have moved twice using a different company. My furniture during this move looked like it has been through a battle. I have scratches and nicks on almost everything. They did not shrink wrap ( did not bring any with them) my furniture to protect it during the move and moved full tables ( dining, breakfast) without disassembling it. I have reported the damages and the company has been slow to act. I am glad to have moved but if I had to do this again, I would go with another company.

We had a piano moved on 2/22. At the last minute, we also asked to add a dining room set to the move. Thomas accommodated our request for a great price. His team was prompt, courteous, and professional. They took very good care of our furnishings to make sure everything was well protected. The move went great, and we will certainly recommend Tate the Great to anyone looking for a mover.

These guys were great. We hired three movers and they quoted us a fair rate. We initially thought the entire move would take about 4 hrs but it ended up taking 6 hours and took two trips. The entire interaction with these guys was not only professional but warm. They moved our items with care and treated our home with the same attention. I could go on but I’ll stop there. Look no further than Falcon Moving

Compass Liberty Express, LLC is an excellent piano moving company. The workers are professional and polite. They moved my baby grand piano perfectly and set it up in my family room in short order. They also arrived even early at the storage unit where the piano was kept. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to have a piano moved.

RLMJ was great to work with. They arrived early and was ready to get moving soon as they arrived. They were very careful with all my items and made sure everything was wrapped and secure before moving anything in or out. I would highly recommend RLMJ Movers! Mayrah on the customer service rep side was GREAT! She made the process very simple from the beginning and easy to understand what all to expect from pricing, time and more. Will definitely use RLMJ again in the future with any moving needs.

I needed a very large French door refrigerator moved into my kitchen. It required extensive work to get the appliance into the house and then into the kitchen. These movers were very professional, knew the "tricks" of making the seemingly impossible work, and placed my refrigerator exactly where it was supposed to be. They were punctual, courteous, and did a great job. I will definitely call them again if I need a mover.

The guys that did the move was cool as far as personality wise, but they pussy footed around for 7 hours. When they first started they told me they could get the job done in 2 1/2 hours. They was moving pretty fast in the beginning, but when we got to the new house they took a really long time. When the job was done I spoke to the man on the phone and he told me that I would see a $765 debit from my account and it turned out to be $865. We ended up paying way more than we wanted to pay just to move from snellville to Grayson, 15 min away. We even moved all of our own boxes to help speed up the move
