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.

What an excellent moving crew! They completed work in a timely manner, and didn't leave a scratch on any walls, baseboards, or door frames. Throughout the move, the lead mover provided regular updates and kept us informed of the progress. Very efficient and friendly.

Travis and his team did a great job to help us moving out from the one bedroom condo to our new house. They wrapped our furniture carefully and move our stuff with great care. Definitely adding values to our move by helping us wrapping the furniture to protect them from scratches. Will for sure refer to friends if they are moving. Great job ! Happy to have them !

From the first call to get a quote to the last item moved and set up, Rogers moving was exceptional. Alex started me off with the quote and set up. Called me the morning of the move right after the dispatched team called to say they were on their way. Alex made sure things ran smoothly through out the move while my moving team did the heavy lifting. Darien, Dontrell and David were three of the best guys for the job. Very personable and hard working. They wrapped all of my furniture in pads and cling wrap and took extra care with all of our items. When we got to our new home, they even moved in the couch we bought and couldn't figure out how to get into the house and did it with no complaints. They were even faster than anticipated and lowered the price of my quote which was wonderful. They relieved a lot of stress for me and I can't thank them enough. I will always use and recommend Rogers Moving Services.

Was promised crew of 4 and 22 foot truck. However, only 3 showed up with a smaller truck. As a result, we weren't able to move everything we wanted. I ended having to move stuff on my own using my van. On the positive side, they showed up on time, wrapped everything and moved furniture, boxes, etc. very quickly. They loaded up the truck very well so that no space was left unused in the truck. Movers who came to my house were very respectful and handled everything with care. I would hire them again but would like them to keep their promise.

I definitely would recommend these movers. They are incredibly hard working, quick and affordable (especially for all the work they do). They will disassemble and reassemble things, wrap and make sure everything gets to the destination undamaged. They will make your move much less stressful. I would not hesitate to use these guys again and absolutely would recommend.

I called Motion Transport to have a heavy piece of furniture moved. After a very minor glitch in the schedule, they showed up at the exact time they said they would. They were extremely professional and courteous and did a great job. I would definitely recommend them.

It was a good experience. They were responsive and did everything they could to make all of my items fit in the truck. My move included stairs at both locations, and they made it happen with a great pace and positive attitudes. I would hire them again if needed. You also can’t beat the price.

It is hard to imagine giving Two Men Labor less than an Excellent rating. We needed an in-house move, relocating a dining room set and office furniture after having new flooring installed and finished. All pieces are large and heavy and we were anxious to get our rooms back. Jacob and his partner arrived when promised (on time, the day after I contacted him!), asked us for clear directions about where our items should be placed. They worked quickly but carefully, too. There were no surprises - we would recommend them, and definitely hire them again!
