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.

Moving Mountains Inc. was fantastic! They were able to help us out in a pinch in under a week from my first contact. The movers were professional, friendly, efficient and accommodating. If I'm looking for movers in the future, they'll be my first choice!

Very reasonable pricing. Time starts when they arrive at my home and finishes when they are done unloading everything at the moving to location. Truck charge is a flat fee independent of distance and fuel is included. Company was very punctual and responsive. Very hard working movers. Moving is a tough job to do.

Roy was great. They followed up with me through every step, showed up on time, handled the job extremely well (moved a 500lb hot tub with only two guys!!), quick and efficient. No damages, easy going, down to earth guys. They were both personable and I will and would be recommending them for any future moving jobs. If Roy says he can do it, HE can!! Thank you both so very much for relieving the stress regarding moving my hot tub!!!!!!!!!!!

Stay away from them, they the worst mover you could ever higher. They damaged both of my couches (refer to the photos). I tried to communicate with the them via emails and phone calls but response. they filed a claim fro the damage with their insurance and got denied, after that never heard from them. I am contacting my credit card company to file a claim against them. The mover were rude and inefficient, I hired a crew of 4 to get the move done quickly and it ended longest move I ever had (10 hrs). One person in the track organizing the items and the other 3 just standing there doing nothing but slacking and killing time. when I asked them to do the job, they replied "we don't know what to do , we are waiting for the leader to tell us what to do". I previously moved the same items with a 2 men crew in 4 hrs with no damage.

I can not say enough good things about KENKAYS. They showed up the same day I contacted them and showed up exactly at the time they committed to. They moved a loveseat and sofa out of the house and assembled the new furniture in less than an hour. I would recommend them for all of your moving related needs.

The moving guys were great, courteous and got the job done fast. They moved my upright piano, big one piece entertainment center and a side by side fridge in less than an hour. They were very polite and cautious with our piano, wrapped everything in blankets and starch wrap. I would definitely hire them again and recommend to family and friends.

I had an excellent experience with Moving Mountains. Kelly and his crew saved me with a very short noticemove (the night before) due to another company standing us up. He was was very understanding and reassured me it wouldn’t be a problem. They were very prompt and courteous. I moved to an apartment on the 4th floor without an elevator. Despite the difficulty move, they were speedy and professional. The price was incredibly unmatched. We even tipped them generously due to their hard work and dedication to provide excellent service. I definitely will use their services again in the future and will be referring them to everyone I know. You won’t be disappointed. Top notch! Bravo guys!!! Thanks so much!

The 4 man crew that came out to help us was AMAZING!!! They were so kind, professional, and efficient! They work very well together and made our moving day a breeze! They unloaded 2 large storage pods in 2 hours. I am very satisfied with their services and will be hiring them again if we need to move anything. I wish I could remember all their names to give them each credit. Thank you again!!!

I hired two movers from Knarr Trucking and was extremely happy. They were on time and flexible and transparent (as the workload increased they continued to check-in to make sure I knew how much the additional work would cost). I highly recommend them and will look to use them again in the future.

As my husband fell into bed exhausted & battling a cold last night-the last thing he said was that the money for these 2 HARD WORKING POLITE AND RESPECTFUL ABD SMART GUYS was by far the best money we have spent on our move. We procrastinated and they came at the last hour to help us get on our way quicker and less beaten & battered than we would have been otherwise.
