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.

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. 

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.

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 did a great job, were efficient, and very friendly. Both the scheduling and moving were done well and would give Big Guys Moving a call the next time we needed movers. Thanks!

The work crew was fast, courteous and professional. I’ve moved several times over the years and never reuse the same moving company twice, But should something happen and I moved from the house I just purchased I would gladly use this company again.

Fred and Chris came over to help us move things around in the house. Some pieces were very heavy. One estimate that I got which was twice as high as Wii would not move the heavy pieces. I thought that was what movers do! Anyway Fred and Chris moved them without complaint and without damaging anything. They had a great attitude and were very professional. They were running a little late for the appointment time and called a head to let me know. They were only a few minutes late. If I need any future moving needs, I would hire Wii in a heartbeat. I highly recommend them. They are outstanding and cheaper than most.

Our entire move experience with You Move Me was excellent- from the initial estimate to the flexibility with some necessary date changes, to the multi-stop moving day! We were expecting a crew of 3, so were pleased when 5 guys showed up. They were all very professional, well-organized, respectful, and worked very well together. I would use this company again for sure!

What a lifesaver! We ordered a treadmill thinking we could move it ourselves but found that it was way too heavy. So glad that we found KJ. He and a coworker came and quickly moved it up the stairs for us. I would highly recommend!
Reached out to Integrity Moving Service on Saturday and were very helpful in getting me help the next day! Tayrell and Daniel were very friendly, professional, and quick. Had all of my large items moved out in under an hour. 10/10!

Was looking for a moving company at 8am with short notice for a move the same morning for 11am. They responded the fastest out of all of the other companies and had a crew on-site that showed up early at 10:40am. They were great, fast, professional and came in and took care of everything. Plus, you can’t beat the price per hour and they didn’t even charge a trip charge to come to my location (which I think is crazy with some moving companies). I would recommend them and definitely use them again!

Worst experience ever. Completely unprofessional. Scheduled for an 8am move quoted at 2 hours. Showed up at 6pm and took 8 hours and left bed frame on the truck. One mover was sleeping on the job, ended up having to unload my belongings myself due to their inadequacy. Audacious I was even charged. Buyer beware!

We were very impressed with the whole experience! The movers took care of our things as if they were their own. They were very professional, yet friendly, they displayed great work ethics and didn't waste a moment of time getting us into our new home. I have recommended B2B to everyone who asked about our move.

Did a NO SHOW after committing to time, price and details. Wasted time and put our move behind. Use at own risk!
