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.

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.

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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Arrived exactly on time, with all needed materials including plastic wrap to protect the furniture piece being moved. Able to get the job done (moving a very heavy filing cabinet) in a timely manner, with not a single scratch to the walls or floor. Much appreciated service! Would use again and would recommend!

I was more than satisfied with the care and help I received from the 2 gentlemen that moved me. They went above and beyond what was expected of them and they spent extra time and care with my belongings. They moved me in the rain and snow and didn't even flinch about the conditions. I would highly recommend them for your next move. They were worth more than what they charged. Very happy to recommend them and I don't recommend people lightly. Thank you guys for your assistance at the last minute. They came within a couple of hours after speaking to them.

I cannot say enough good things from my experience with this moving company! Not only did I receive a timely response, but all of my questions were answered, I was given a reasonable price, and the quality and care used for my item was incredible! They were able to move a 1200 pound arcade cabinet including disassembling and reassembling, and the knowledge provided was invaluable! Completely recommend this company!!!

I was in a bind when my contractors couldn’t move our new range from the garage to the house on the last day of our renovation. These guys came the same day and were able to get a 450lb range into the house and even hooked up the gas for me and set it in place. Super thankful and they were all very nice and careful with their work.

I wanted to purchase furniture at Costco...immediately (10% off good until 01/17 only), however when calling movers in my neighborhood nobody was available on such short notice. I did a google search and came across the thumbtack website, submitted my email and phone number and received a call within minutes from Alexander at Rogers Moving Services, LLC. I received a great estimate from Alexander who was cordial, informative and professional; it was a done deal within minutes. I phoned the main office first thing in the morning and spoke with the owner and confirmed the arrangements I had made the previous evening. I then met up with Antonio, Johnny (Johnnie), and David as agreed at Costco; they loaded the truck and were at my apartment within 10 minutes. Do not underestimate this dynamic trio, they are on the quiet side BUT they are fierce problem solvers. How they managed to get my huge, bulky, and heavy pieces of bedroom furniture up my two flights of stairs is beyond me. And they did it quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend their services and if I ever need a moving team again, I will definitely give Rogers a call (and request these gentlemen...if they're not out on their own by then). P.S. A previous reviewer had suggested that the "good reviews" were done by friends/buddies of the Rogers team and that is just not the case here. Well done gentlemen and kudos to you, all of you, but especially David, Johnny, and Antonio!
