Jeff came, saw, and conquered my bypass shower double sliding door install ease and precision. I requested someone who had experience and could quickly turnaround this project prior to my family coming in town for the holidays and Jeff came to the rescue. The shower doors were one of the last steps in my bathroom remodel. Jeff took great care throughout the entire project and only used the best tools required to create a finished professional look. Even when the original refinished tub’s threshold was 1/4 unlevel, he managed to cut and adjust the door channels for a seamless, finished look while ensuring the doors glided smoothly. I really appreciated his attention to detail and work ethic. Kudos to Jeff for saving the day. I plan to use him for future projects.See more

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

Reviews for Boise movers

Boise Local Boys moving is the real deal. I have moved 20 times in my life (no exaggeration) and moving day is almost always dreadful. Not so, this time! This was the easiest, most pleasant move I’ve experienced. Brandon communicated with me ahead of time to set expectations, kept in touch the day of the move, and handled my furniture with care and efficiency. Couldn’t recommend them more strongly.

Brandon showed up on time, was prepared, and worked efficiently to help us move across town. Would definitely recommend him if you need to move. He was also easy to get ahold of to arrange the move.

I loved this company! I used to work as a mover, and I can state that from first hand experience that this company knows what they are doing, they are quick and prompt, and that their work took great care to preserve the grand piano and the house that they moved it into. The quote was awesome, the service was good, and I would gladly ask them to move stuff for me at any time. Trust me, this is who the movers call to move their stuff.

We needed all the stuff in our storage unit moved back into our garage, and WOW, this was the most efficient, fast, neat, and professional move we have ever been involved with. And the cost was more than fair, it was an awesome value. We are beyond pleased and would recommend Boise Local Boys Moving to anyone in a heartbeat! And we will definitely use them when we move again.

I appreciate these guys! They helped turn a stressful move into something positive. They even knew how to take apart a beast of a treadmill to get it moved. They are very friendly, professional, positive, timely and reasonably priced! I will use them again and recommended them to anyone going through a move! 😀😀

Having moved from state to state twice, I've had my share of experiences, however, I wish I had Brandon, the owner, in charge of all my moves. This wasn't a long move, but it was a big job for me, but he assured me it wasn't gonna be hard, and he was correct. Thank u for your professionalism, courtesy, and respect. U have a lifetime customer in me, u r awesome, sincerely, Terry.

Brandon was very straightforward and gave me a reasonable estimate after I described what needs to be moved. No hidden fees. He and Leslie came in and moved my stuff quickly but at the same time took good care. I would recommend them and won't hesitate to call them next time.

We were very happy that we asked Boise local boys to help us with our move! They were right on time and very professional. They took the time and patience to wrap everything well. They even got us extra boxes when we weren’t able to fit in last minute stuff. Even at the new location they were very helpful in putting the boxes in the desired rooms. Would definitely recommend Brandon and his team for having a smooth moving experience!

Terrific two-man team showed up and took good care of my things in a small, short-distance move. They have a 2-hour minimum and came in right at that. Their rates are reasonable and Jacob is very nice to work with in setting up and going through the details of the upcoming job.

Brandon and Brad helped me so much this morning; they carried one extremely heavy sofa up my condo stairs with a smile and just really good work. Every other mover that I’ve ever had to scrape the paint off my walls. Not them. Overall outstanding job. Highly recommend. Very competitive reasonable price.

Jacob and his team did an awesome job unloading our u-haul and moving our million boxes and some heavy furniture pieces into our house. They communicated promptly showed up on time, stayed as long as I needed and I'm very happy with their help. Their estimate was exactly what the job ended up being and what our final total was. No bait and switch. Would hire them again.
