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 contacted a handful of companies to move some heavy desk items from my garage to an upstairs bedroom. Move Mania was one of the quickest companies to respond and had same day availability. They arrived on time and when I asked them to move some additional pieces from the bedroom to the basement they had no problems doing it. They took care in their work, wearing boot booties to protect the carpet, wrapping the pieces in blankets, and carefully moving the items to avoid damage to floors, walls or the pieces themselves. They charged a reasonable price for the additional items they moved. I would definitely hire Move Mania again should the need arise.

They did a good job moving our stuff. It was just unfortunate that an unexpected accident from the movers caused some delays in our task schedules in our new house.

These guys were fantastic. They moved us this past Saturday, the hottest day of the year. They showed up on time, and they kept going in the heat for 5 hours, and wouldn't stop. Needless to say, they were exhausted by the end. They had another move scheduled for that day, and I'd like to add that at the time of booking none of us knew how hot and terribly humid it was going to be that day, and by 3:00 it was unbearable. They tried to respectfully reschedule the second move as they were on their last legs, the customer was not happy at all. I do understand that it was a major inconvenience to not be able to move on the day you've scheduled, a lot goes into planning and moving, and I'm sure it was very disappointing for her. She did eventually agree, but I hope she didnt leave any negative reviews, it was necessary and out of their hands. I'm sure they would have passed out at some point, it was just dangerous. I'm surprised they lasted through my move. Good job guys, thanks again and we will be using your moving services in the future!

I needed a cast iron tub moved from a garage to a second floor in my house. I contacted RTO Express through Thumbtack and within a few minutes they responded. I sent pictures of the tub and where it had to be moved. I was sent quote right away. The pricing was extremely reasonable and they were able to come the next day. The team of two men arrived on time and were very professional. They took a lot of care in wrapping up the tub and made sure it was protected during the move. The area where the tub was going was a tight space. They were able to lift it into place without any incidents. When they were done they accepted the agreed upon payment. Before they left they made sure no to leave any mess behind. I would re-hire these guys anytime I need to move something. I thank them for the professionalism they showed and getting the job done as if it was their own tub and home they were moving into.

These guys did an amazing job for me. I called them and they showed up the same day to move a very heavy treadmill from my garage to the basement. They even assembled the treadmill for me. There is no way I could have done this job myself. I would highly recommend RTO Express for any of your moving needs.

I told them I was going to move a 4 bedroom and a gym, dinning and 40 boxes. They arrived 2 hours late and with a very small truck and packed only half of my stuff. The guys were painfully slow. I was called by a very rude person who said they didn’t realize I had so much to pack which was why they brought a small truck to pack a whole house. I had way less than 40 boxes ! PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS MOVING COMPANY! They spoilt my bed, did not fix my kids bed when they got to the new place. I had to employ another company who got the remaining half of my stuff at half the price and way less time. Terrible terrible terrible! Why are they coined professional movers?

I messaged Eco-Cleaning at 8pm and they were out to my home by 7am the next morning to move a washer and dryer up my stairs into my condo. They were punctual, professional and affordable! I highly recommend them!

The guys moving the furniture were friendly and comfortable to work with. They worked very hard, moved things fast. However, they were not equipped with enough moving blankets and a few pieces of furniture were damaged (scratches on cedar chest and two bedroom dressers). My biggest complaint was the fact that my own convertible two wheeled hand truck was nowhere to be found after the dust settled. I called and spoke with Chris, the owner, about how his guys probably just mistakenly collected it with the rest of his equipment and that I figured it would show up on one of his trucks. He texted (not phoned) me back to say that his guys said they left it at my old house and would have no reason to take it. After having looked in every possible place for it, I texted him back a week later, with a picture of the hand truck. I received no response to that text.

Kudos to the two gentlemen who moved my furniture from a Pod to my second floor condo. Not only were they extremely careful and patient as I changed room layouts, but it was a miracle they didn't have heat stroke on such a terribly hot day! They were worth every cent!!!

I was able to hire them for a quick turnaround 3 days out of my move. The guys were very friendly and worked hard. We only had one problem which was damage to a dresser, but they have us credit for the damage. I would hire them again if I ever needed them.
