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.

I had moved my apartment into a storage unit with another company before I found Clark and Sons, and it took C&S the same amount of time to move from the storage unit into an apartment but with less guys and at a greater value. Will be sure to recommend them as well as use them for my next move!

I was impressed by these young men and happy that I selected them for my move. Andrew kept in contact with me on a regular basis. They showed up as planned and the move was quick and efficient. I would not hesitate to use them again.

My team of movers showed up promptly at 8:30 am on December 2nd, as scheduled. They were professional, courteous, and they were careful with our belongings. They moved quickly, but still took their time disassembling and reassembling our dining table and beds. They were very kind when I asked them to move a few pieces around for me and they were very careful with my stairwell, hallways, and doorways. I was very happy with the reasonable cost as well! I will definitely recommend Clark & Sons to all my friends and family and I will be using them for any move in the future. Thank you guys!

From the moment we discussed the job (taking apart the table, moving it and reassembling it) we received prompt replies to questions and they went out of their way to ensure they had all the parts to get the job done right. If we ever need to move it again or have repairs done we will use them for sure!!!

I used Clark and Sons when I moved to my townhome on 4/28. This was the first moving company we ever used and it was a great experience! The guys arrived early (which I loved), they were very professional and kind, they worked hard and did not goof off. I got my money worth for the quality. Clark was also very helpful with answering my 2000 questions I had before the move and informative about what is included so there wasn't any confusion when it came to payment. I would recommend them to anyone and plan on using them again in the future.

Frederick went above and beyond with our move. He went and got a HUGE sectional, carried it down 3 flights of very narrow stairs, and drove it from Cincinnati to our home in Florence. He noticed that there was a little drywall on the sectional and scrubbed it off for me. Very personable. Thank you!

Wow! I can't say enough good things about the movers we hired to help us this weekend. The crew- Donnie, Matt and Patrick showed up right on time and got to work. I was amazed at how hard they worked. From the time they got to the first house to the time we finished at the new house- this crew worked their butts off. They were very kind and easy to work with. My boyfriend and I agreed we would recommend them to everyone! Their pricing is upfront and fair- and the were extremely careful with my stuff. 10/10.

Jared runs a fantastic business- he just concluded my move - and I couldn’t be happier!! He was the first business to contact me on Thumbtack- and he was the best right from the start! He and his partners were kind, professional and fast- and they were very careful with my belongings- which included towing my vehicle to a destination 10 hours away!!
