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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Reviews for Peoria movers
Jessica K.
John and Jackson were awesome to work with. They both promptly showed up and dove straight into the work. We had fridges, a stove, washer and dryer, and multiple other large items to move. It was a tough move too! They were very careful when moving and considerate of the home and the items they were moving. Reasonably priced and extremely friendly and professional! Would definitely recommend these guys to anyone needing help moving!

Lee and his team were extremely careful with our belongings and paid great detail to how things were loaded into the truck and where things went into our home. We had some particular heavy items (upright piano and a riding lawnmower). They were able to get it all moved where they needed to be. They have a great deal of experience that they bring to their moves. Highly recommend using them for your moving needs. Great quality and great value!

Wonderful service, very punctual, respectful, and fast. We needed a 350lb 200 gallon fish tank moved down a flight of stairs and around several difficult angles. They did a great job and in a very timely manor. We will definitely be using Squared Away for our next moving needs.

Wesley is responsive, professional, and hard working. He and his team arrived on time, and coordinated with us on a move that included storage units and an extra stop at a mattress store for pick up. It was a sweltering hot summer day, but they remained upbeat and got it done!! My husband and I are so very grateful for the help moving into our dream home!

The two movers showed up on time and finished the job quickly. They were very polite, friendly, and careful with my furniture. They even offered to help me move a few additional items that were too heavy for me to carry. I was overall very impressed with their service and would definitely hire them again with no hesitation. I highly recommend this company!

We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Lee’s Family Moving. We had a 60 inch vanity with the quartz top already attached that needed to be moved into our upstairs guest bathroom. It weighed a ton. We tried to move it ourselves, but quickly realized that that would be next to impossible. We had a plumber scheduled to come 2 days later, not to mention several overnight guests the following weekend, so time was if the essence. Within a few hours of posting our needs on Thumbtack, I was contacted by Wes. Not only did he say that they could handle the job, but they were at our house the next afternoon! Wes and his helper were prompt, professional, and efficient. They had the vanity upstairs remarkably quickly, with no damage or issues to either our house or the vanity. An added bonus is that their rates are extremely reasonable. We are beyond grateful that our project can continue forward on time, with all of our thanks going to Wes and his crew for making it happen. The next time we have a move, big or small, we will definitely contact Lee’s Family Moving!

DO NOT HIRE THIS MOVING COMPANY IF YOU HAVE OTHER OPTIONS. The quality of work is poor and overall unprofessional from movers to manager. Be prepared not to take responsibility from any of them if damage happens to your property. They think I’m complaining to get a little refund. I told them I will handle damages to property. I was just waiting for someone to apologize, but did not happen. One star. Look for someone else!!!!!

We LOVED these guys!!!! They were exceptional! Mike stayed in constant contact with me as we moved from Denver to Peoria, Illinois so we were able to pin down timing for unloading our moving truck. Mike and his team showed up early, were professional and kind. They meant business and showed up to work as efficiently and as carefully as possible. There was not a single wasted minute and I would use Howell, LLC again in a heartbeat.

We recently moved and hired Lee’s Family Moving and we couldn’t be happier with how wonderful they were!! Wes was quick to respond to my request for a quote and the prices were more than fair! His team arrived on time and ready to get started. They were extremely careful with our belongings, wrapping and cushioning everything. They were super prepared for unforeseen issues and had tools at the ready when we realized we had to take off a door to remove an item from one of the rooms ( we had already packed our tools up) We were moving from downtown (5th floor loft to a two story in Dunlap) They unloaded everything and placed our furniture where we wanted it. Wes was extremely careful with our belongings and with our new home, being extra cautious of wood floors, etc. The team was super friendly and made a stressful day go super smooth. I would recommend them to anyone planning a move! They really were great and went above and beyond.

The workers who moved my furniture were excellent, friendly, and knew what they were doing. They did a great job and were very efficient. The price was very reasonable for the work they did. I would definitely use them again for any similar job I might have in the future.

Good communication by owner and his team. Very polite and courteous! My move from Peoria to Chicago went well, they took good care of my items and were efficient with loading/unloading. Great organizational skills! Cost was mid-range when acquiring estimates, but this company had availability on a short notice. 10/10 would hire again!

It was a huge relief to hand the “heavy lifting “ of my move over to Wes! He and his co-worker were friendly, hard working and fast! They took extreme care with my possessions as well as my house! The day was super hot and there are 2 staircases to navigate, however they did not complain AT ALL!! I however complained constantly!! I highly recommend using this company!! Wes will not let you down!

Richard Salyars of Straight Shooters Hauling Services has no insurance, breaks things, and won’t do anything about it. I asked him to pick up a treadclimber (like a treadmill)from someone's home to bring to me. When he arrived he put 3 screws and 4 washers in my hand and said, "we had to take it apart." (he smelt like alcohol as well) When they brought it in the plastic casing was broken and can not be reattached. The plastic was pulled off as if they tried to lift it from the plastic and it broke off. Also, the grey chord was hanging from the bottom of the counsel. They attempted to reassemble but kept saying, “I don’t know about these things.” He said the plastic casing fell off when they first touched it. When the council was put up it wouldn’t start and there is a screw missing on the structure now. The chord that goes through the counsel down to the ground and back through the metal casing to hook to the motor was hanging out the bottom. It had a kink. He then decided to open the casing and now the electrical wiring is exposed. I paid him $120 in cash so they would leave my home. The next day I called him and I asked why did he not call me or take a picture then. Richard Salyars said, “I thought you knew it was broken when you bought it.” I told him when I tried it 2 weeks ago it was together and worked. I asked him why he didn’t call when he decided he needed to take it apart cause I would have declined. Richard said, “ it’s like when I take a mirror off a dresser.” I said a treadcliamber is much different than a dresser. When I asked what he is going to do he said, “nothing.” I asked about him using his insurance and he said, “I don’t have any insurance.” I said I thought you were a professional mover. He said, “I am not a professional. I am not mover I am a hauler.” Eventually this obviously not a professional hung up on me. I paid $1200 for this treadclimber which is broken now and does not work.
