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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Bellhops Moving was awesome! From scheduling the move, to showing up on time, and moving everything super fast. I'll hire them again the next time I move and will recommend them to anyone I know moving forward.

The guys worked really hard to move three large pieces of furniture. Moving out of first house was somewhat easier. The second house on piece went to the basement and the other two upstairs. They were able to get large solid wood pieces not tight quarters. Very impressed. Last move was done by You Move Me. No comparison in the skill set of the moving team. Do not use You Move Me use The Dudes.

I had to change the day yet the message didn't get to the movers. They were so nice and confirmed the new date. The second set of movers were helpful , friendly, worked quickly. We paid them the mover charge and tip...later finding out that was not the way to arrange . payment. The moving company charges our credit card. Kindly, the moving company took care of this for us and vowed to improve communication on this issue.

I needed help to move my 3 bedroom home out the Waldo area. I don't think anybody likes to move but these guys made it as easy as possible on me. The movers were nice and worked hard and got my whole house moved in a day, no problem. I would hire them again if needed.

I had my move scheduled couple of weeks ago. There were 3 guys who came for the move. 2 of them were there for the estimate as well. There was a new guy who joined them for the move. This new guy was extremely slow, lethargic with the goods moved and at times even sat on our furniture to rest while I was helping the other 2 guys with moving stuff. Unless 2dudes and truck don’t use this new guy or coach him on how to handle these moves, it will be hard and difficult for them to get more customers in future. On the positive side they did charge me for the original estimate though it took longer for the move and accepted my feedback on the third guy.

The Dude moved everything from my storage unit to my apartment. A different moving company moved everything into my storage unit and did a terrible job. The Dudes made sure to let me know what was damaged/broken and protected my stuff so well that I am able to use the damaged items. It was also raining all day and they made sure to wipe their feet every time they came in my apartment and were so helpful through my entire moving process. I highly recommend The Dudes. They are fantastic to work with from the time you want a quote all through the end of the move. The three movers I worked with were superb. By far the best moving company I have ever worked with, and there have been many.

I could not be happier with Point Blank Moving. I hired 3 movers so the work would be done quickly. I was amazed how quickly it was completed, and in less time than I expected. The items they moved were either big and bulky, unwieldy and/or heavy. These items were moved from our house to our son’s, where they were quickly unloaded and moved in. Mike, the owner of Point Blank, even called me before leaving our son’s house to make sure all was moved as planned. This is a professionally run company, and I will absolutely hire them again if needed, and will recommend them without hesitation to family and friends.

I had a great moving experience with Moving Kings, and would totally recommend them to anyone that needs a mover! The only negative I experienced was some slight scuffing to a few pieces of wood furniture, so I would confirm that things are wrapped and padded properly during the moving + transport process. But overall, they did a great job, were quick and efficient, and all acted professional and courteous.

The three movers did an outstanding job! Prompt, respectful, and careful they did the job with professionalism. The quote they gave me was on the nose. I would recommend Point Blank to anyone who needs help with moving. I know that if I move again they will be the first folks I contact.
