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.

Had a really good experience. We had to reschedule our move day a few times and they were accommodating. On the move day, they were punctual, quick and careful with our stuff. Thanks for taking a little bit of the stress out of moving!

EasyMoving was hired to move my piano from Swanea to Belleville. They arrived when they said they would. That was great because this move involved a third party, who after speaking with them were very pleased with the service. The gentlemen who moved it were professional, hardworking, courteous and personable. I've had to move multiple times over the years and they would rank very near the top.

I have moved several times in my life and I've never hired professionals I've always had friends to help. This time was different and I decided to go with the professionals this time because I have a 3 bedroom home with alot of things. After reading the reviews I was kinda skeptical if things would work out. Never the less I hired full service moving. I will be honest the were about 30 minutes late due to traffic (pet peeve of mine I hate tardiness) but I understood that. But everything after that I can say was awesome the two guys showed up asked what needed to be moved and they moved everything I needed them too in 1 hour. After they were done with the heavy stuff they even helped me n my kids move the boxes. These 2 gentleman showed up and showed out my entire house was moved in 3 hours. I have never been able to move all of my things in that short amount of time. If I ever decide to move again I will definitely give these guys a call all around AWESOME SERVICE. If I could give them 10 stars I would⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jason and team were outstanding. My move was somewhat complicated but Jason worked with me for a few days leading up to the move date which helped with the uncertainties. They also took really good care of expensive and nice furniture which is far more than I can say about my other recent experiences. I highly recommend ReloPro to anyone needing help with moving.

Movers were punctual, even early. I hired them to move furniture to a different floor in the house. Sounds easy, but it was two really bulky, heavy pieces through a narrow hall. They were very careful and moved them without a touch to the wall! The two men were kind and polite. I will be moving in a few months as my husband is now infirm. We have lived here for 25 years and have a lot of stuff. I will be using them for the move especially since I found out they will provide a dumpster and can provide junk hauling service as well. BTW, they were very reasonably priced too! I am so grateful when I can find good professionals at reasonable prices! Thanks guys!

They sent one 26' truck and a shorter one as backup, plus four men. The movers were all experienced, friendly, and quick! I would highly recommend them. The only drawback was that I didn't have time to pack all my items, so there was quite a few loose items, clothes, lamps, etc., which they didn't move, due to liability. My daughter, and another person hauled three truckloads of loose items. So, if you're moving, pack EVERYTHING in a box, and they will move it. Other than that, which was my fault, loved the service & have recommended them to others. Love that it was created by a vet, for vets! And, the cost was so much cheaper than two men and a truck!!

They were absolutely great! They made sure everything was intact. They made sure everything was set up and was helpful in so many areas. They were patient and kind! Even took time to bring me back the handles for my treadmill. They are hands down the best moving company. I would hire them again in a heartbeat! Great prices and great people!

They were great at accommodating my schedule and reasonable price. The actual movers were nice guys who were following directions of the owner regarding price etc. They were also quick. However their quickness caused a quite a few scratches in my leather couch and dining room table. The dining chairs have a deep indentation in the arms as well. I would use them again if I prepare my furniture better by thorough wrapping and packing knowing the boxes will not be handled rather roughly.
