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.

Amazing experience, very kind and friendly movers, they took great care on moving my furniture, highly recommended!

Stressful experience. Arrived 2hrs late. Two people to move. One of them really arrogant and ready to argue with you and make instant excuses not to move what he thinks is out of size furniture. I have moved the same things twice before and nobody ever thought them to be oversized. I hired a van later from u haul with a dolly and moved the 'oversized' study table myself with the help of my wife. I would term the movers attitude to be lazy and unprofessional. The good lesson I learnt is I could move my stuff myself if I hire a truck and a dolly. Thank you 'big guys' for teaching me that lesson! I paid for 4 hrs for what could have been just 3hrs job with the move being a few blocks apart. And that too with a lot left to move for myself!

This was hands down the best moving experience I could have asked for! After pricing out a few local movers, Back to Back had a very reasonable price and explained the prices well. I had to have furniture moved from one apartment to another, both on the second floor and everything went perfectly. I will absolutely be using them for any of my future moves!

Big Guys Moving was very professional, respectful, and helpful. Unfortunately my husband hired someone else, yet pending on what happens, I certainly have Big Guys Moving on my call list to help out for moving. If the service on the phone is comparable to the service they offer, I would rate in words outstanding! Thank you!

Movers showed up on time on a very cold and rainy day to move us. They worked hard the entire time and got us taken care of! There was one piece of furniture that got some minor damage. However, they made us aware of it and took 10% off of total cost of move without us asking. They also showed up the next day to help fix the item. Great customer service! I highly recommend these guys as they are a great company and charge about half the price of all other major moving companies.

What a refreshingly pleasant experience! Usually when you pick a moving company you are always a bit nervous about whether the movers will care about your furniture and heirlooms as much as you do. Q and his crew were on time, friendly, professional and extremely hard working. We were so impressed with them! Not a single thing broken or damaged during the move. Thank you so much for the wonderful job you guys did, we appreciate it tremendously! I would highly recommend Q. In future moves I will be calling on this crew.

The team at B2B is AMAZING! This is the second time they have helped me move this year. These guys HUSTLE. They're kind, ask for your input on delicate items, and are extra careful with your belongings (they pad and wrap all furniture for you!). This move required picking up items from 3 locations, and they made it flow like pros. B2B is literally the only moving company I'm ever using!

I was so impressed with this crew! I had a local move that included a number of very heavy and awkward items, including a digital baby grand piano and a treadmill that a previous company refused to deal with. Not only did they get everything out and moved to my new home quickly and efficiently, but they did so with zero damage to my home or belongings whatsoever. They were very responsive, professional, and skilled. Communication in planning and letting me know when they’d arrive was excellent. I’ve moved 4 times in 6 years and can honestly say this was the best moving crew I’ve used. Highly recommend!!!

Very professional. Keith worked out a last minute move for me. I was called the day before by one of the actual movers to verify time and location. I met him the morning of and he greeted me with coffee! Very nice. The truck was clean with a nice company logo on the outside of the truck. The company I hired before had a plain white box truck. Kind of sketchy for my liking. We went over documents on his iPad before the move which made me feel better since the other moving company didn't have anything like that. Items were moved quickly but carefully. At the end, we went over payment. It was great there wasn't an extra fee for using my bank card like the last company I hired and which they failed to mention. Would definitely hire again and will recommend

I would definitely use this company again. Started promptly at 10am and finished in 6.5 hours to move belongs to fit into a 1 bedroom apartment. The two man crew worked nonstop until completed. No resulting issues and they placed everything as directed. Thanks for making the move less stressful.

They responded right away and were able to fit me in their schedule quickly. They were very quick to tear down the table, and very diligent in their handling of the table during the move and set up at the new house. If we move the table again, I will definitely use them again. Thanks guys, we love the table!

Q's Moving did a great job in moving a bathroom vanity for me to our second-floor bathroom. They did a walkthrough of the path to determine the best course of action, as it was going to be a tight fit. Asked the right questions and wrapped up the piece in order to prevent any damage. The crew was very friendly and professional. I will hire them again.
