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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

Reviews for South Loop movers

Movers were great. Wrapped everything meticulously and nothing broke in the move. They even disassembled and reassembled our furniture. Movers were on time and worked quickly to get us moved.

My boyfriend and I moved yesterday into our new place and King David Moving was great. The company called to confirm our move the day before, and the lead mover, Martin, called when he was 15 minutes away the day of the move. We had a move window of 8-9, and they were there right on time. We had three movers for moving a 2bed. We were finished right around 1 or so - under the estimated time and budget. Martin and crew were super fast and very nice. Best move experience in Chicago.

My move consisted of a cross-town move, one bedroom to one bedroom apartment. The move-out and move in time took much longer than expected and the treatment of my belongings could've been better. Overall they were able to complete the move.

I required a last minute move and Move Mania responded quickly and took care of business. After working with professional movers I definitely won't be trying to move by myself again. I will be recommending Move Mania and hopefully hire again in the future. Thanks for the excellent work.

I worked with 2 different teams. The overall quality was equal to the price. The first team I had helped me to move out, and they were accommodating to the moving issues. The second team was less efficient. Overall, this is a company of people who will move things, these are not movers in a professional mover sense. Have it all staged and easy to move in and out and this is worth the price.

Our experience with Gabriel & Jeff of Move Mania was excellent. The crew was punctual, professional, respectful & accommodating to our needs. This is our first experience with a moving company. In two previous years, we moved ourselves. This is by far a great experience. Move Mania will now be our preferred movers. Thank you Gabriel & Jeff.

I did a long distance move via a shipping co. & needed someone on short notice to move me from a truck about 20 min drive away to my apartment. Rogers Moving Services was able to schedule me to move the next day. The whole move took one hour, including drive time. (It is a one bedroom apartment.) Considering the move onto the truck took 2.5 hours (albeit in hot Phoenix), I am VERY impressed with Rogers Moving Services.

Contacted this company a month before my move. Provided moving location and information. I received my quote and set my move date and time. The week of my move they decided to increase the price. Now I am forced to find other movers within a week. Save yourself the stress don’t book with them.

Amazing movers! The best I've ever worked with. They were able to move a 400+ pound elliptical down a narrow stairway to the basement. Three other movers said it wasn't possible. But Innovative Movers did it with only two guys! They were friendly, patient, efficient, thorough, and honest. I will definitely use them for future moves.

These movers were awesome! They arrived on time and worked in a team that allowed my move to go seamlessly. When we arrived to the final destination, the movers sorted the boxes and even double checked with me before they left that everything was sorted out properly. None of my things were broken (VERY important). This was one of my best moves, and I would highly recommend Chicagoland Moving and Storage to anyone looking for a professional and responsible mover.
