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.

Reviews for Streamwood movers
Lydia V.
Absolutely blown away! We needed a crew to move our three bedroom townhouse about 40 minutes away to a two story home. The whole experience with Day & Night movers was great! They gave prompt feedback and I was able to book right away. The day of the move, we had a two hour window for arrival and the crew called 30minutes out. We had four amazing gentlemen help with the move, they came with a ton of moving blankets and wrapped all our furniture before putting it in the truck and not one item was damaged nor was the townhouse. Once the move began they got to the new location promptly and the entire move was done in 5 hours!!! We did end up with a scuff on the new floor but honestly it was due to our awkward piece of furniture. Everyone on the crew was friendly and professional and if for sure use them again!

Moved my treadmill upstairs. Very nice and easy to work with - there was a scheduling issue and they were extremely apologetic and showed up first thing the next morning. They took great care in moving the treadmill, were done quickly, and most important, they stuck to the quoted price - no hidden charges! I would recommend

These guys were great. We had a 4 bedroom house worth of things to move out of two storage units and into a house. They recommended 4 people and quoted us 6.5 hours. Coordinating with Joel before the move was a piece of cake. They worked hard and deliberately on the clock but never rushed while handling things or packing the truck. They wrapped and took good care of the nicer pieces of furniture (worth the extra $) and were very receptive to us directing which box went where in the house. In the end, they were faster than expected, wrapped some things for extra $, and the total was very close to the quoted price.

These guys showed up on time ready to work! Despite the heat and humidity (and the stairs-sorry guys!), they were SUPER QUICK! I couldn’t believe how fast they were. They got everything packed up from the first house, stopped at another house to pick up a piece of furniture for me, and then brought everything into the new house, in about 2 hours. They were very careful with all of my belongings too which I very much appreciated (I’ve heard horror stories of movers just tossing things around). These guys were very friendly, professional, and reasonably priced. I would 100% recommend and use again if needed!
