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.

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.

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 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. 

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 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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

They were on time and extremely respectful and courteous. They placed my daughter’s belongings onto a moving truck in no time flat. I actually thought it would take longer but they showed up and got straight to work! Thanks so much for taking such good care of the work you provided!

I contacted Tony on a last minute "PLEASE HELP ME" situation after we were left stranded with another company. Not only did Tony and his crew jump to help us, they did it kb their day off!!! He was very sympathetic to our situation. They came on time, wrapped our stuff, loaded it and moved us 3 hours out of state on a day's notice!!! They were professional, polite, very careful with our belongings, and worked until the job was done. I can not say enough good things about Tony and his crew. I will definitely use them again anytime I move!!!!! If you use anyone else you're wasting your money!! Thank you a thousand times over for everything!!!!!

PLEASE READ: I hate to give this review because I'm just usually not this person, but this was the absolute worst experience. It was my first time hiring movers. I will start by saying I did receive a call back the day after from Carlos. He did want to make things right. I'm still waiting for him to send me a link to make a claim, so we will see what happens. I'll just list off the things that happened: 1. My appointment was at 8 AM. They called at 7 AM to request a 9:30 AM start due to a 10 PM move they did the night before. (Their truck broke down in front of my house, I felt so bad!) 2. I told them to rent a U-Haul and I would take them to pick it up. The driver let me know he didn't have his licenses/wallet on him so he was not able to rent the U-Haul or drive it. They did reimburse me the cost to rent the U-Haul. 3. They broke my thermostat in my current house :( It is still functional but the cover is a goner. So we have no idea what temperature it is in the house (it's and old school thermostat) 4. They dented my fridge twice on the front. The guy who was leading the crew told me he took pictures and that Carlos would get back to me to help make it right. I hear from Carlos when we speak that he claims they didn't make the dent. I was a little disappointed at this. 5. One showed up wearing Crocs... Honestly, I love me some Crocs, but probably not the best to move it. 5.1. By the time the move was "done," his Crocs were RIP. 5.2. He slipped down my stairs! Not sure if this was the Crocs fault or not... 6. When he slipped carring a fridge, they banged up my walls. I just puttied them over. It wasn't anything I couldn't fix on my own. 7. They never reassembled my furniture. I paid an extra $50 to have them do that. Two beds I put together by myself. I had to sleep on the couch that night! 8. They brought ZERO water. I had to supply water for the boys. I say boys becuase these were kids. They were really nice. I felt really bad. I am all about a small business, I just hope this was a learning opprtunity for these guys to one day get their business up to speed on the customer service and satisfaction. They are all literally under the age of 22.

Justin & Justin were amazing. Crew leader Justin was incredibly forthcoming right away telling me that he noticed that I wanted the 2 hour minimum and that it wasn't a 2 hour job. He then told me that "I can get all of the big furniture and anything that wont fit in a car" and then asked if I would like to pay for the additional time needed for the balance of the boxes to which I voluntarily declined. They ABSOLUTELY HUSTLED the entire time, loaded the truck down safely & carefully (but also VERY promptly) and then asked which rooms we wanted each item in and executed with 100% accuracy. What made it totally awesome is that they set the furniture in the rooms in a way that MADE SENSE (I didn't re-arrange anything, they set up each room with perfection). They finished with 3 minutes to spare (so obviously they estimated the load perfectly) and on top of all of the above they were polite and professional even though they both had a very rough day and were working several hours later than they had expected. If I had to move again I would absolutely use them again and will be recommending them to anyone and everyone I know who needs movers with full confidence. A++ service guys. No reason to look elsewhere, in my opinion.
