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.

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’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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

They was great if i was to ever move AC Moving is the company on top of my list. Thank You for good moving

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.

We needed a single upright piano moved after the loss of a loved one and these movers helped us get it to my home safely. It may have been helpful to have extra hands as this was a very heavy item but my husband was there and able to help them get it up the stairs and the rest of the way in. Fair price as far as I could tell compared to other moving companies and very responsive in setting up the time and date even though it was quite last minute. Respectful in person and over the phone.

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.

The movers Nick & Tim came into home got clear understanding what needed to be moved and started the process in wrapping all my furniture.

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.

The Dudes are great! They are very kind and efficient. I'm very happy with the work they did, so much so that we hired them twice to finish our move!

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

It was mediocre but was really pissed me off was they didn't load everything I asked them to, the shelf on my tv stand was damaged and i helped unload a lot of boxes and totes. The turn to get up the steps to my new apartment was pretty tight. I had one large cabinet that I said I understood if it was dinged or scratched but not my tv stand. I had 2 large totes and a Total gym that they were supposed to load. They didn't load them and I didn't realize it until the movers were gone. I have to sell the total gym because I don't have any way to move it. When I hired movers I didn't expect to help unload boxes, totes and small furniture but that is what I had to do. Cost kept sitting down on the steps waiting for his sweaty hands to dry, try wearing gloves next time! I thought Angel's face was so red I thought she was going to pass out. I am glad I had water for her. I should have gone with 2 men & a truck, lesson learned

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. Very good and timely job well done. Would definitely recommend moving with them again!

So grateful for the last minute help moving my grandma’s piano into our home. They were so kind and funny and very personable. And also strong and kept my piano safe and our lovely hardwood floors completely unharmed. Thank you so much. The third generation to tickle these ivories is already it just hours later.

Tim and his helper arrived early and were ready to go. They took the time to see what needed to be done and took good care of the piano. It was a move down 19 steps from the second floor, but it went very smoothly and took less than an hour. I would recommend Tim to anyone. He is obviously a man who is willing to work and do what it takes to get the job done.

They called before heading my way and arrived in a timely fashion. I was very nervous about moving this piano as it’s been in my family for 5 generations, but as other reviews have stated they were very careful! Once the piano was in its destination location they ensured it was placed just how I wanted it. They did a quick job for a very fair price! I was quoted double and triple from other companies, but I would highly recommend that you use iMove KC.
