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.

They were great! We appreciated how careful they were with moving our items. We especially appreciated their guidance for a few items that weren't properly prepared by us for moving safely to prevent damage.

Joey was very professional. He arrived promptly. He was very patient with us even though a lot of what we needed moved wasn't exactly ready. He worked with us and got the job done on time. They helped us get through a stressful Moving Day without a huge headache. I cannot say enough good things about these Movers.

From the beginning Ron (the owner) was great. He came and did an in person consultation and brought me 10 boxes with no commitment of using his company to move. He always quoted me a fair price. When it came to moving day Eric and his team of two other men were great! They were prompt in their arrival and called me when they were close. The entire team was friendly and professional. They were quick on their feet, kept me informed of their progress, and asked where to place certain items when moving to my new location. I would definitely use them again in the future if/when I move again.

Super helpful guys. Came prepared with pads and knew what to do to move a very heavy pullout couch upstairs. Also gave lowest quote out of all movers on a 95 degree day, they work hard. I would recommend to my friends or family

Sent a truck too small to handle my move despite providing list of rooms and pieces. Website shows estimated rate of $90.00/ hour when actual is $160.00. Did not have tape. Damaged dining room set and dresser. Did not complete the move. Did not finish reassembling the dis-assembled furniture.

I had a small move of some furniture and a few boxes. From the very first call to King David everything was handled so well. My initial contact was a woman named Liana who handled the specifications. Very polite and very professional. She called back to verify the address and then to send the actual contract which I returned. Then on the day of the move the crew arrived exactly within the time given. The moving foreman, Martin, was extremely professional and everyone in the crew was extremely professional and I was really struck by how polite everyone was. The move went exactly as estimated initially (I didn't add anything to my initial inventory.) A very special thanks to Liana, Martin and the staff! I highly recommend King David!

My boyfriend and I needed to move some furniture from his storage room into his moms house and we were simply looking for the best affordable route to take. We came across Apex pinnacle and we did our research on them and was very impressed with the great reviews. We called Adam to set up a move date and time and he was awesome and very understanding. Pricing was amazing! The day of the move I was running about 20 minutes late and when we showed up to the storage room, the crew members were just so patient and welcoming also one guy had a great sense of humor! My boyfriend and I were highly impressed with the professionalism they presented and next time we have to move I know that Apex Pinnacle will be a phone call away! Thanks so much to the crew, Sandra, and Adam!! I highly recommend:)

I just used Rogers moving this past Sunday. It was my first time hiring pro movers and they did a really good job. Titus & Fred were my movers. They were prompt & professional, yet down to earth. When I first contacted the company, I had a lot of questions and wanted to make sure they could handle my job..and had also addressed the issues that I read about in a few of the other reviews. They answered all of my questions and had addressed the issues from past moves. The only area of concern I would say is somehow the number that they recorded on their end was my work number instead of my cell...so when the guys arrived 30-40 mins early, they could not reach me. I called for an ETA at the scheduled time and that's how we connected. So just double check that the cell number is what is being used. Otherwise, give this young company a chance. I highly recommend them. :-)

This is an excellent company. The movers were extremely organized, professional, and fast. The "foreman" provided a detailed outline of charges. I knew exactly what I was paying for, no hidden costs.

Anyone looking for movers, look no further. These are some of the hardest, most professional and courteous individuals I have ever met. We hired other movers initially (terrible mistake) and asked the Archers to come in and finish the job properly. They were punctual, professional, and efficient. None of our furniture was damaged in the slightest. Amazing, seeing as they had many obstacles to face in order to complete the job. These people are the absolute best. I would highly recommend that everyone hire them. You won't regret it.
