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. 

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. 

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.

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.

This was the first time I've hired movers, and if I have to hire movers again in the future, I'll go with Moving Pros. They had what I called no wasted trips, always moving, carrying something. It was raining on my move day and they wrapped my furniture, really positive experience.

They quoted my 80 year old parents for a move, and asked for half the money up front, and the remaining balance when the job was finished. They picked up there stuff in Frisco Texas, and put it in storage in Lenexa Kansas. Then they would pick up the furniture in storage a week later to put in there apartment when the move in date arrived, April 7th. Tony asked for the remaking balance after he picked up the stuff and put it in storage. When April 7th arrived, they made an excuse that there truck was broke down and couldn’t move the stuff anymore. They took advantage of my 80 year old father. We had to then Re-hire a new set of movers. Very dishonest company.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience with these guys. Cole was not only quick in responding to my messages, but was right on with his quote for my move. The three movers (Ty, Jake, Aaron) were incredibly professional and at times were practically running to get the truck loaded and unloaded, all while being VERY careful with my belongings. My next move will definitely be with Moving Pros. HIGHLY recommend

What a great experience from initial contact to the end of the move. The two young men who helped me with my small move were friendly, professional and especially careful with my belongings. Very efficient and completed my whole move on time. They were also able to accommodate me at the last minute. Great to work with and super affordable !!

We had to move a 2bedroom house to a nearby location and after getting multiple quotes from multiple commercial as well as private movers, I decided to go with Mike, since he quoted a reasonable price for the move. Mike was prompt and called me the day before the move to make sure I had a Uhaul truck which I did. He brought dollies and he was right on time. Got into the work right away with his companion, I forgot his name. They did a great job loading the truck and clearly Mike knew what he was doing. He made sure none of my items were damaged and he was careful as well as quick which is a rare combination for movers. Even while unloading, the staircase was a bit narrow but Mike and the other gentleman both did a great job in moving our king mattress into our bedroom. We loved their professionalism and they tirelessly finished the unloading process on time. I would definitely recommend Mike to my friends for any future move as I know for sure that the items would be moved safely and at a great speed! Thanks again Mike!

We used Bellhops for some furniture moving and a small local move, and I was so impressed with the young men (Rhys and Cameron) that helped us! They were early, incredibly professional & respectful, quick but cautious of our walls & other furniture, and did the job as expected. I would highly recommend them and plan to use Bellhops again with our next move.

I need help to move my piano the next day and Tim is only one to contact me and gave me the quote in time. The quote is very reasonable, Tim and his partner showed up on time, which is really helpful since we need to move the piano to the U-Haul truck first. I really recommend Tim and his partner for moving.

Incredibly pleased with AC Moving Company. The crew showed up a couple minutes early and got right to work. I could not be more pleased with their professionalism, effort and care. Not to mention we booked them the day of the move, and yet they were incredibly responsive and had the flexibility to get a crew out to us hours after my initial outreach. I would highly recommend AC Moving Company!

Moving Pros surpassed my expectations. The crew was professional, personable, extremely hard working, and took amazing care of our belongings. They wrapped and padded all our belongings that needed to be protected, and even protected the door jambs and floors in our home. They moved a lot of extremely heavy and large items out of our basement and didn't even put a scuff mark on the walls. I would recommend moving pros to anyone.

The two Desmonds and Kirby were very quick, conscientious and accommodating while moving my home. Even though it started snowing/sleeting while they were loading the truck, they never broke stride. I wasn’t expecting to hire movers, but due to COVID had to make a last minute change and I’ll never move any other way! This company had the lowest rate of any other and they were able to help me at the last minute.
