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.

An absolutely fantastic experience with this moving company. They not only moved the initial items that were agreed upon but also went above and beyond to grab extra items to make my move easier. This was all done at a very reasonable price - unlike others that had quoted moving, truck, and gas fees - especially considering I only had a few items that required attention.

Ezra and Daniel were very considerate young men who did not sit around while on the job. They were on time, loaded, moved, unloaded and sit up the furniture quickly and neatly, and took the time to make sure I was satisfied with the placement befor leaving. During the move an item had been misplaced, they located it, and brought it back to the house. I made the appointment for the move several days prior to it happening and they arrived on time and kept me informed of what was happening during the whole process. I know I am going to need some movers again down the road, and it will be them. I was happy to find out that they will come and move stuff around the house as well which is handy to know. All in all I was more than happy with my choice to hire these movers and if I could give them more than 5 stars I would.

I hired A Friend With A Truck for my move in early January. They promised me a great service for a great price and they delivered. The two movers, Josh and Derrick, were great to work with and took good care of my stuff. The price was actually less than quoted. I am a happy customer!

We needed a washer and dryer moved within a household and it was NOT an easy job! Stairs every which way, washer was unbelievably heavy and large etc! These guys did a great job and were so gracious and helpful. We will call them in the future if we ever need moving or other services. They installed the appliances for us and were able to help us troubleshoot problems as well.

When I chose this company, I did so because of the reviews on this site. When I called I gave a very detailed description of every room in my house and the furniture it contained. I requested 50-100 boxes be moved because I wanted to over estimate. It took 8 pickup truck loads to get the stuff these guys didn't take because they said their truck was full. The owner would not answer my calls or email the day before the move. The day of the move he called to tell me they were running behind and would not be at my house between 9 and 10:00 as scheduled because they had items stored overnight on the truck that were going to storage, which didnt open until 9:30, so I was pushed back to almost noon. He also wouldn't answer my calls during the move when issues arose with bed bugs found on a box springs. Below is the email I sent and his response: I have moved several times using various moving companies. Yesterday's move was the biggest cluster I have ever witnessed.  1. The bed bugs. There is absolutely no evidence of bed bugs in the room the box springs came from. They were not in the sheets, blankets or bed skirt! There were no eggs or any nesting signs. It was one box springs. I have a hard time believing those did not come from the packing blankets in your truck. You told me the truck sat overnight with someone else's stuff in it, so I know it wasn't cleaned before my move. 2. They got most of the big stuff, but the whole entire move seemed quite disorganized. They left a lot of stuff that was boxed. We had to put a table and a TV and other items in my son's truck because there wasn't room. The bedrooms weren't kept together so it got confusing know where things went when we got to the new house. 3. The only things that were put back together and set up in my new house was the frame for one bed, I had to search for the cross bar to complete that and then my husband and I dragged the boxsprings and mattress from another bedroom to put it together. The refrigerator was halfway put together and the theater seating in my basement was set up. My washer and dryer and other items were just dropped and left. 4. Boxes that were marked did not go to the rooms they needed to go to. I had a box marked "master bedroom" that I haven't found yet. I had a box that had glass that was turned sideways, when the guy heard the glass, he set it back up, put it in top of another box, picked them up on his back and the top box with the glass items slid off and hit the hardwood floor. So, to say I am highly disappointed is an understatement. I chose your company because of your rating. I did not experience the quality I expected. This was the response from the owner (who did NOT call the next day. I haven't heard from him since): After talking to the crew, they said you were pretty happy with the move with the exception of the bed bugs. After seeing them all over the box springs, my crew checked the moving pads, truck, etc and in my opinion, there is zero chance they came from our equipment. They had to have been living between the mattress and box springs for a long time and you didn't know until we took the mattress off the box springs exposing them. We store customers' items on the truck overnight and sometimes multiple nights due to delays in closing, out of town moves, etc. Bed bugs has NEVER been an issue. We regularly swap out our pads And I typically buy new ones annually. At this point, I have to throw away over $900 worth of moving blankets because of the bed bugs. With regard to the crew, that is an awesome crew with years of experience. I'm not sure how all these issues arose. Brad said he did not one but 2 walk throughs with you. At that point, any issues such as boxes not being where you want them, reassembling of items, etc. I'd be glad to send a crew by to move boxes and whatever else you need moved around. This is really bothering me and has since I heard about the bed bugs yesterday. Let's talk tomorrow. That is all of his response. I have not heard from him since. I had an exterminator come to both houses to examine for bed bugs. He FOUND NO EVIDENCE of any bugs. Now, how many exterminators tell you they can't find anything? If he had found any evidence, he would have tried to sell me something - instead, he said he saw nothing. He made no money on either visit.

Would never book this moving company. Have me a min of $0 and hourly of $60. Once confirmed date stated there would also be a $80 traveling fee on top of the hourly. That’s something they should state upfront! Very unprofessional

These guys are fantastic! Cole set me up quickly with a 3 man crew: Kevin, his brother (Kendris?- I have bad memory sorry), and Ben wasted no time! I was on a 3rd floor apartment with no elevator. They protected the doors, wrapped items, and carefully removed every single thing in my apartment in less than an hour. Then turned around and filled my townhouse in less than an hour. They even got my monstrous headboard upstairs to my bedroom with the low ceiling stairway. It's incredible how much weight each man could carry on his own. Like super heros with super strength they quietly moved about. Lifting large dressers like pillows. While walking around inspecting they scared me a few times by walking up for direction and moving about because they were so quiet! To help them out I really suggest labeling all sides of each box with what room they go in, and package wrapping anything with drawers. Fully drenched they never complained, never stopped moving or smiling, and were a delight. Worth every cent! Thank you so much!

Amazing work and was overall very friendly and courteous especially since I was running behind and got the job done right and complete even through they had to navigate extremely narrow hallways and was very careful regarding maintaining the piano itself.
