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.

I was gifted a free piano from our neighbors. They only lived .4 mile away and I searched high and low for the best price piano mover. I was so pleased with Motion Transport's prompt reply, quick turn around time and great care in moving our free piano to the exact spot I wanted it in my home. I have highly recommended these movers to everyone I see looking for piano movers! They move more than just pianos too if you are in need of a Goodwill haul away or other moving needs.

I would highly recommend Tom and Pinhead Piano Movers for a piano move. Tom is very professional. The move was scheduled quickly and was discounted as we utilized Tom to tune the piano as well. He and his crew arrived on time, quickly moved the piano without any issues. He assessed the piano for tuning after the move and advised us as to what needed to be done. I had no idea there was so much involved with tuning a piano but Tom explained it all extremely well to my non-musician's ears. The tuning was scheduled and completed on time as promised. Tom also discounted the tuning since we had utilized him for the move. I would hire Pinhead Piano movers again without hesitation.

The 2 moving men that showed up were great. They called on their way so we had a hard start time and had little discussion - straight to work. They picked up quickly on the system I wanted to use to move in furniture and were moving ahead of me quickly. They did little extras that were not asked of them which I appreciate. The movers were also extremely polite and took great care not to damage the furniture or the house. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mobile Services Moving Assembly Delivery. Kc

Local move. Movers were outstanding. Furniture arrived in same condition as when it left the property. Pricing is fair and transparent. Quoting system needs consistency - written quote should match verbal quote. I would use this company again because movers were oustanding.

They showed up 2-1/2 hours late. They were in a hurry to move once they got there. They managed to move all my things with no damage. They also moved everything to the floor I requested. Even moved the truck around for me. I was not happy that I was quoted a price for 2 hours and they barely worked an hour then charged more than the quote for the stairs. All things considered they did a good job.

I thought Rob’s Jobs did an excellent job with all the furniture and other items I had and made my move very smooth. They asked many questions in regards to what items needed to be moved and what was not going on the truck. Another thing that impressed me was how they managed to fit all my belongings in the moving truck

Like most people I tend to stress out when it comes to a move. I've read horror stories in the past about movers damaging or losing things, hiding fees in their quotes, etc. This has lead me to do my own moves in the past. However, I just finished my move with Keep It Up and now I am questioning why I was ever worried. The guys were absolutely fantastic! Consummate professionals and efficient to boot. They were extremely careful and took the time to make sure everything was just how we wanted it before leaving. I would definitely recommend this company for anyone looking to make a move!

I hired two crews for the same day, one to move me and one to move my fiance. Both were 3BR townhomes moving into a SFH. Both crews arrived on time, were very polite and professional. The difference was that my crew took nearly four hours longer to make the move, even though the homes were roughly the same contents. I think they were really young and struggled to disassemble and reassemble my furniture. All of our furniture was wrapped and protected well, however my dining room table was slightly damaged during the move. Overall, it was a pretty good experience and would consider recommending them to others.

You might as well throw your furniture away because by the time Rogers Moving Service is finished; it will mostly be broken. The movers showed up on time with a truck that had "Sasquatch Movers" painted on the side. One of the movers told me Rogers bought it used and that it didn't have headlights so they had to finish the moves before it got dark. The three movers just threw stuff in the truck in piles. They put my dining room table in the truck on it's side rather than on it's legs. One mover climbed over my stuff an while standing on the legs of my dining room table broke them off. They have refused to give me claim forms or a receipt for payment for the move. At the end of the move while I was taking pictures of my broken dining room table which they had placed face down on the blacktop driveway they explaines that they had a new rule and can not take checks. So I paid with my credit card despite the 3% service charge just so I have a record for payment because it seems like I will have to sue to get compensation for my broken dining room table and destroyed cherry wood living room end tables. I would suggest hiring a different company. Or just chucking your furniture in the river and buying new stuff.

Roy and his crewed called to say they were 10 minutes away and arrived earlier than our designated time which was so nice!!! The movers shook my hand & introduced themselves and were extremely polite & curteous throughout the move. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend Motion Transports to anyone in need of moving / lifting help.

I can’t say enough about how great they were to work with. Initially, I was quoted 2 hours for the move, but they managed to get it done in 1. I think they handled my stuff with the utmost care and everything survived the move, including my large glass desk. I would absolutely recommend using them for any of your moving needs.

Michele P. - Naperville, IL The Athletic Movers is a Fantastic Moving Company! Travis is great to work with, easy to talk to and he and his crew (Lance and Carl) were professional, on time and very efficient in getting the job done. Travis was very thorough when we discussed the details of the job and his estimate on the move was spot on. All my things were wrapped securely (including a piano) and transported safely. It was refreshing to work with someone who really listened to my concerns and communicated and followed up promptly. I highly recommend The Athletic Movers!!!
