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.

MoveCo moved us last weekend, and they were excellent! We had a team of four men who moved us quickly with great care for our items and were a pleasure to work with. Thanks, MoveCo, for making this move the easiest move ever!!!

Positive experience and the move went well. If I did another move, I would contact them again. If you are considering moving, reach out to them and see what they can do for you so you don't have to worry about all the moving, packing, unpacking, etc.

I hired mid state movers to relocate a couch from my mother's house to my home, and the DAY OF the scheduled move they canceled an hour before they were supposed to show up. The move was rescheduled for the following day at the same time, and they showed up 30 mins late. Worst and most unprofessional moving company I've ever used, I will not recommend.

The review process asked me to pick the top three, but honestly move gurus scored on all five points. I would highly recommend them if you have a move.

The movers were so kind, thoughtful, thororough, and fast. I could not have asked for a better moving crew. The price was very reasonable. Just make sure to let them pack your entire home. There is only one true set price for the move. If you have packed some boxes, the price will not be lowered for any of your personal effort. Still, I am telling you the movers could not be beat. Tip them well...

Maurice kept us informed before the move. Exhibited concern about our possessions. Items were covered with blankets, wrapped, and moved carefully. We would highly recommend them.

Best moving experience. They were awesome. Very motivated, took great care of the furniture, never complained about heavy furniture or the stairs. I’m in the military and move a lot. They did an awesome job.

The owners, Tim and April, were exceptionally helpful in making our moving experience as pleasant as it could be. The movers, Maurice and Boone, did an amazing job of moving our furniture out efficiently and setting it up in our mom's apartment . They showed grace and patience as they maneuvered around the numerous elderly residents of the assisted living facility. Super friendly, great price and very reliable! Thank you!

Tim and his crew helped me tremendously with my move. I didn't have to lift a finger! The weather was really bad during my initial appointment time so MoveCo worked with me to schedule a later time of the day so my things wouldn't get ruined in the process of moving. When I get ready to move into my house I will DEFINITELY be calling them again!

Tim and his team helped me move a piano into my home. My need for MoveCo's service came at the last minute, but was rather immediate, in order to prevent weather damage to the instrument. Tim responded quickly, within 20 minutes of my request, and was available to assist me in my move as early as the next day. Once our appointment was scheduled, the team arrived precisely on time, and quickly moved the piano into my home safely and with no issues. The team was very friendly, courteous and efficient. I would recommend MoveCo Relocation Services if you are in need of moving assistance.

Was in contact with this company back and for the since the beginning of the month because was not sure wether the move would be on 16th /17th or 23rd/24th . Got an estimate from them as well as several others through email. Called them and told them it would be the 23rd and we talked about totals and if there was any way to lower the price and was told they would talk it over and that I was on the calendar for the 23rd. Got an email telling me they can lower it if combined with someone else’s move in large truck. I called them to clarify and upon realizing that would not work decided to go ahead and confirm move on Wed the 22nd of Aug. I told them I had several others that were waiting to hear from me for final yes or no, but I liked how polite the young man on the phone was, that is why I chose them, he thanked me. I was told I would get an email with documents I needed to sign and send back. That was 18th waited all day 19th called no reply. Emailed them on the 20th no reply, called them someone answered, ‘oh I’m sure he said he sent it, did you check your email and span’ (YES, I did of course) ‘I will get with him and tell him to resend it asap’. TO this day I have not received another email from them. I tried calling later that day no answer, next day n answer, by this time I am panicking because HELLO I NEED TO MOVE MY STUFF BY THE WEEKEND. I get on craigslist after it is completely and utterly apparent that this business is a joke and had no honor or dignity and was going to stand me up and leave me without a moving company. Wednesday the day they were supposed to be loading their 26-foot truck I called more than once no answer, a mover from craigslist met me at storage unit to give me a quote to move our stuff. Thursday craigslist mover loaded truck, Friday they drove it to NY and Saturday they unloaded. I want to clarify I gave a 1-star rating at first without a review because I didn’t want to relive this and don’t like talking bad about anyone, but then they have the NERVE to contact Thumbtack and tell them they did not move me. DUHHHhhhh no you &@#$ing didn’t, that’s the point, and since I should be allowed to leave a rating and I was warned by thumbtack that my rating would be removed. The thing is I DID hire you and you never followed through or cancelled. If I could give you a -ve rating I would.

We had a great experience with MoveCo. They were very professional and nice. They were able to complete our three bedroom move in five and a half hours and we had a few very large items (two china cabinets, full dining room and kitchen set, elliptical, sectional, and entertainment center). Everything was very well taken care of and all of my items were placed exactly where they were labeled. Anything we had left unlabeled they asked about. Overall, we had a great move!

Wonderful service. Jared was punctual and very professional. If I ever move again I will call these guys first! It's a far cry this day and age to find someone this professional on a person to person business site, but look no further. Jared is your guy.
