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.

Great movers, I hired movers from Wisconsin to move to Illinois. The movers couldn't do it. I hired Top flight movers to do the job, within 30 minutes they got the job done. Highly recommend these guys.

Though it’s was moving one sofa from my place to my kids apartment.They where on time keep in contact before arriving. They were pleasant and got the job done in no time. I would recommend them for any size moving job. Save the hassle of getting a rental and friends to help. When you want the job done right and fast and save your back. Call J.C MOVERS.

They were actually early which would have been great but we were at a different location and not at home. However, they waited patiently and started charging us at the previous stated start time. They were very professional. They reviewed all the furniture to be moved, wrapped all of it, and then moved them without damaging anything. The movers were great and didn't waste time. The only parts that we didn't like was that when paying for the final charge, we were charged an extra $100 and when moving the old fridge to the curb some hinges and shelving were left out. However, after talking to Sandra, the extra charge was reversed back.

At first I was a little doubtful as they were about 30-40 minutes late for the move. But once they got going, I was very impressed with the care they took in wrapping all of my items and being able to break down and rebuild the bigger pieces. They were cheerful, very sweet to my girls who were in awe of them, and very accommodating to us. Thank you Apex for a smooth move to our first house!

Patrick and his partner did a great job on the move. They adapted to the different locations well and went the extra mile when I was too tired to assist any further.

Overall, I had a good experience with Rogers Moving Services. Highlights in my opinion were: they were on time, very strong, understanding, polite, and two of the workers were careful. Areas of improvement: All workers should care enough to properly secure and move items from the home to the truck with minimum damage. Of the three men that were sent, one of them didn't seem to have any regard for our belongings and as a result a few items were scratch and broken off.

I definitely recommend Jacob and his crew for moving. They have a great attitude and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure a smooth transition from point A to B. I plan on using them again for additional services (rehab/organization/property clean up).

Tom was extremely friendly and knew what he was doing. He moved our piano to another location and then followed up for a tuning. The tuning was excellent. I like the fact that he knows pianos and can tune them as well. Highly recommend using his services.

They were so friendly and helpful. And very professional. Not a scratch on any pieces of furniture. Wanted to help us with everything. Put the furniture where we wanted it and then moved it later when we found a better place for it. All with a smile. Would have them again without hesitation.

I am so happy with my choice to use day and night movers. From the moment I first called, I had a really great experience. I spoke with Alfredo Villegas initially and he was very thorough in explaining the charges and then came back to me with a written estimate detailing everything that we had spoken with on the phone. I then set up a deposit, we agreed upon the date and time for the job. On the day of the Job, Andre and Charlie, showed up at the appointed time and began wrapping all of my larger furniture items. They both did excellent work taking very good care of all of my furniture items. Andre took great care taking apart my bed frame and headboard and then reassembling it perfectly at my new location. It was really hot day that day and very humid but that did not stop them from doing the job exactly as they estimated. I can’t say enough good stuff about my experience with Day and night movers. I highly recommend them and they are great value for the cost of their services.
