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.

I truly admire the hard work and dedication that the Integrity team showed during our move. Due to a change in schedule in closing dates we had to shorten a 2 day move (pack one day - move the next) into 1 day. The team was up to the challenge and worked thru the night to get us out of the house on time as required by the new owners thru pure grit, hard work and commitment to professionalism. I could not have asked for harder working team to help our family move and I would definitely recommend Integrity moving services to anyone who asks!

This company did an excellent job moving a heavy cement bird bath for my family and even located it to the new spot at the new home. They were incredibly responsive, reasonably priced, and when they realized that they didn’t have the right things to move such an awkward and heavy object they quickly brought an extra person and a dolly to be able to safely and effectively move the bird bath. Would absolutely use them again!

Pros and cons, I called them about 3pm and they got the job done same day which I was impressed with. They sent 2 guys when they desperately needed 3 to move the item. The movers did their absolute best job though with what they had, which I appreciated. Good job to Jon and DJ. I had some minor damage to my walls and moderate damage to a doorway but I don't blame that on the movers seeing as they were a man short. I was also told that this company knew how to move pianos but I know they are not based on my experience. I would give the company 3 stars and the movers 5 stars for respecting my home, willingness to work late and get the job done even though they did not have the tools.

Maybe my expectations were too high, but I felt like hiring movers meant making it easy on me since I was spending tons of money. But, I moved most of the boxes myself into the house from the garage. And, unfortunately, they really cut into our walls where the actual drywall chunks and shavings are on the carpet below. They said they would have a drywall person come out to fix it but they did not and now are not responding to our texts, calls, or emails. There were only a couple broken things- my sons lamp and some Christmas ornaments. They said they would replace those too, but again aren’t returning our calls now anymore. This was just not up to par. I had to pay for 3 guys but 1 guy said he couldn’t lift anything because he had hurt his shoulder. And like I said, I ended up moving right along with them the whole time!!! Like I was an employee! Lol

Difficult to reach and pin down time. Asked for confirmation morning of and did not reach him until late in the afternoon on the day of. Out of concern for his remaining time on an obviously rented truck, my mother and I carried in and out all of the drawers of the piece of furniture being moved. I asked that he shift the piece of furniture that was in the way of where the delivered piece was supposed to go. He used my dolly (fine) and charged an additional $25 to move that piece 15 ft. I understand the extra charge but half again the cost quoted with no additional mileage is steep. I should have asked about additional charges. I've also just found two divits in the plaster wall where the second piece sat. I don't believe they were there before If not for the perfect storm of difficulty contacting, extra charges and damage to the wall, I'd say the service was fine. But all of that added to the fact that I had to help him lift the piece onto our porch and also moving the drawers, etc myself... I'm a bit frustrated. A $60 quote and a $95 cost (incl a $10 tip bc I hadn't seen damage to the wall yet). 😔 I appreciate that it's done. Oh, for those concerned, he did wear a mask!
