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.

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 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.

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.

Reviews for Statesboro movers

Klean and Klear moved my entire house from Statesboro to Roswell. Communication with Chrissy was great prior to the move and she even followed up with me afterwards. The moving crew was very careful, nice, and helpful to me in moving out of one house and into the new one. I highly recommend them to move you!

The men at Savannah and Sons moved our family from Statesboro Georgia to Naples Florida. We had a 4 bedroom house and four 10x10 storage units to move. Issac and Carlos along with employee Christopher did a great job moving us with 3 trucks. They wrapped and packed all the furniture and spent extra time and care with placing heavier boxes on the bottom. I would say they take a lot of pride in their work. Thanks for making our move a little less stressful.

We used Klean and Klear to unload our moving truck when we got to Statesboro, Ga. These guys were Amazing. They worked so hard and as such a team. It was very obvious to us that Christy the owner was very dedicated and took pride in her work as she was right in there with the guys moving our stuff. We couldn't have asked for better service than we received! Thank you Klean and Klear for an easy transition into our new home

They came to do both a load and unload job. I was in contact with Chrissy for a few weeks before the job and received a call the night before to confirm. I appreciated the fact she booked several movers and overall was happy with the job they did.

The three guys who came did a great job of wrapping the furniture and protecting the new floors in our new house. It took a lot longer than the owner estimated, but the weather wasn't great, and that was a big part of what slowed things down. I would have given the movers 5 stars, but the owner wasn't pleasant to work with. The guys took an hour-long break during the worst of the rain. I was totally fine with that. I even suggested it. The guys said they would run and grab food, then come back when the rain slacked off. Totally reasonable. Then they took another short break to stop and grab snacks on the way from one house to the other. Maybe 20 minutes or so. That was fine, too. What wasn't fine was that the owner insisted we had to pay, and pay full price, for that time they weren't even at the house or traveling for our job. He said it didn't matter what happened, he couldn't control the weather, and we had to pay up or the guys would wait there until we sent him the money online. It wouldn't have been so bad if any of them had told me we were responsible for that time. We could have had them help us finishing packing inside instead of just leaving to go hang out in town. And I could have ordered them pizza for much less than what I paid for them to go eat somewhere. I was so frustrated. Then the owner insisted I pay with an app that wouldn't let me send the full amount. I offered to pay with check or card and he didn't want either one. After going back and forth with the movers just hanging around waiting on the guy to tell them they could leave, he finally agreed to let me pay the max the app would allow and send a check for the rest with the movers. The lack of transparency was my real issue with the whole thing. It cost us over $200 for that time they spent in town, and not a single person even mentioned that they would still be on the clock. I paid what he demanded because my entire family was exhausted, and the movers were still there way past my toddler's bedtime. I just wanted to be done and for them to leave so I could put her to bed, and I didn't have the energy to fight with the guy. I wish I had, though.
