We had 3 people and two trucks to move from our 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor (stairs) to a house ground floor entrance. The entire move (including drive time of about 50 minutes) took about 7 hours. The planning and lead up to the move was great, very easy to work with and responsive. The quality of work was good, other than a couple dings on Wooden furniture and a scratch on our leather chair I don’t believe anything was broken. They were an hour behind schedule, I think they had someone call in so had to find a 3rd person who seemed to be new to moving to fill the team but it worked for us as we were still packing things up. The one real concern I had was the time that it took. There seemed to be times where the urgency wasn't really there. Some of the guys wanted to talk during the move. I’m all for building rapport but not when I’m paying for it. I also was involved in the labor as well; filling our car with fragile items on the load, packing up loose items and continuously helping on the unload. I can’t imagine how long it would have taken if I hadn’t helped. The benefit of the doubt I’ll give them on the time is that we had several loose items at the end that weren’t boxed up. We also stopped at our storage unit for some additional items to load into one of the two trucks. Since they had someone call in I don’t think they had their normal movers. Overall I’d say it was an average experience, giving them a good taking the considerations I mentioned. They were nice guys and did good work, I just didn’t think it would take 7 hours (really 6 plus 1 hr drive time) with 3 professionals plus myself to move a two bedroom apartment. I’d recommend them with the assumption they are staffing their A-team.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 junk removal service during the COVID-19 pandemic?

You can set up consultations and appointments with a junk removal service near you during the COVID-19 pandemic by messaging the professional of your choice in an online search. Ask if they are willing to set up a video call to assess the project and answer any questions you have. Discuss a strategy for staying safe during the job, including sticking to guidelines on social distancing as well as paying through digital platforms instead of cash or check.

How can I find out if a junk removal service is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Junk removal may be considered essential in certain cases during the COVID-19 pandemic. A good place to start is by searching your city or state government’s website for a list of guidelines.

For national guidelines, visit CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage, which identifies 16 types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.  

Can I use digital payments to pay for junk removal services?

Today, digital payment platforms are gaining popularity across many services, including junk removal companies. Digital payment services such as PayPal, Square Cash, Venmo, Zelle and Google Pay are common options for customers.

Conduct an online search for junk removal services in your area, and ask whether they accept digital payments. Make sure you have a plan in place to take all necessary precautions to comply with any mandated social distancing guidelines.

Does a junk removal service need to enter my home?

A junk remover may not need to enter your home if all of the materials are located outside. If a junk remover needs access to your home and the project is deemed essential, you’ll need to discuss a strategy for safety. For example, avoid being near each other, sanitize involved surfaces and conduct payments using digital platforms. Discuss potential strategies with junk removal companies in your area.

Do junk removers offer remote or virtual services?

Because junk removal requires manual labor, it is not typically a remote service. However, if you see a profile that states the junk removal company is offering remote services, ask the company what those services include. And schedule a phone or video consultation with local junk removers, and ask what precautions can be taken to comply with social distancing guidelines.
