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.

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.

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 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 I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Alpha movers did a great job with moving us into our new house.

I can’t express how easy this move was. First time getting movers and we will never move without it again. Who says moving is fun? No one right? Well, this is the first time I can say I enjoyed moving and it was because of A & J moving. These guys work hard, smart and efficient so no need to put yourself through anymore stress and anxiety looking for that one company that speaks to you. This is it.

Contacted A and J moving for a Saturday move two days before the move. He agreed on date and time. We texted and sent pics of the furniture that needed to be move. The day before he said he would call me Sat. Morning. Saturday morning, I emailed, texted, and called him about the move. Crickets!! I arrived on time and waitied about two hours. Nothing. I sent email, text, and left voicemail. Still no response. Very unprofessional!! I had to contact another mover and pay extra for move that same day due to his non-response. He never called back or emailed and I am writing this some 5 hours after scheduled move. Absolutely terrible. This is not how to run a moving business or any business. Please call someone else, this is an unprofessional moving business.

Kentuckiana Moving, LLC was great to work with for our move. It was actually two moves in one, where half of the household was going to one location and the other half to another location. They assisted with breaking down beds and reassembling them, moving items up and down flights of steps, and of course moving many boxes. We didn't have any broken or damaged items. Overall, they were very professional, hard working, and I would recommend to anyone looking for movers in the area.

The management was respectful and timely in their communication. The movers also maintained good communication, and were efficient and pleasant. It made our move easy, quick, and peaceful. There were no additional charges beyond the quoted price. I will definitely consider EkoMovers for my future moves, and would recommend to anyone considering a move.

I hired Kentuckiana Moving because the company I had used in the past was booked up for the weekend I needed to move. Jon at Kentuckiana Moving was able to get me scheduled for my move on only two days notice. The move went very smoothly and I received the same great service that I would have expected from the other company, for $20/hr less!

They were very easy to work with for a small move. I am certain they would do well with a larger move.

I hired Chad's Moving to move my recent purchase, a heavy Steinway console piano from Louisville, KY all the way to Cincinnati, OH. Chad is very responsive and is able to schedule the last-minute move in the evening before the actual moving day. The cost was very reasonable and the job was done professionally.

took advantage of my situation was unable to perform the move as promised even with pictures send to them with items need to be moved and still charge me the full rate even the move was not performed as promised. I was stranded in a bad way and had to hire another mover (roll back truck) to move item/s originally promised they can move. The worst decision I made, basically I got the big one right up my rear end. I'll feel sorry for next victim/s obtaining their service

I recently completed an interstate move from KY to FL with Elite Moving & Packing and it was the BEST move I have ever done. I am a busy professional that moves often and needs a move to be seamless. I interviewed several movers and was impressed with Darrin Meade from Elite right away because he was very professional at the home visit and went over every detail about cost and logistics. He was the only moving company that gave me a detailed written estimate and there were no hidden fees. The move went smoothly. Every item was logged and he explained all of the paperwork before signing. All of my furniture and delicate items were handled with great care including a piano, several pieces of artwork, and large exercise equipment. The move was direct to my new location and Darrin was very good about communicating via text any updates and his whereabouts on the road. At delivery, I had NO broken or damaged items which is a FIRST of my many moves! I highly recommend Elite Moving & Packing without any hesitation! Darrin and his team were excellent throughout the entire process and made things very easy for me. The cost was comparable to other movers interviewed and Elite was well worth the money considering the professionalism and service provided. Also, even though Elite is a KY based company, they will come to wherever you are for your move!

Great movers!! If you are looking for local movers who are fast and reasonably priced. This is your crew, hire them and you will be happy! I have moved so many times in the past 5 years, this is for sure one of the happiest move. Better than two men and a truck, and other companies I have hired before.

Top of the class moving company. I was impressed. Everything was wrapped, secured and stacked to ensure no damage was done. Everything was reassembled upon delivery and the movers were professional and curtious. I have no problem recommending Your Moving Source.

The Moving Source team did a great job packing us up and moving our things. Very professional. They arrived on schedule, worked very quickly, and were very careful to wrap and handle our furniture with great care. We plan to use them when we move again and would highly recommend them for your moving needs

I booked the date for my move 3 weeks in advance. Two days before the move they changed my scheduled time from 10 to 2. On the day of the move they continued to move the time later and later... said they might be able to make it by 8 or 9....I had to find someone else at the last minute....on a Friday at the end of the month. Not good business ethics. If you need a reliable mover who will follow through on a scheduled appointment, these are not your guys.

Darin and his crew were professional, thorough, and fast. Moving me is a chore with big, heavy, antique furniture with lots of boxes. They did NOT take excessive breaks. They worked. Best experience moving EVER! And I have plenty of experience moving.

The guys were on time, friendly, thorough, and quick. My move took less than 2 hours and nothing was damaged in the process. I would definitely recommend hiring Elite Moving and Packing, and will hire them again for my next move.

My husband and I were hesitant to hire movers for fear of the cost. However, with moving out of a third floor apartment in to a split level house, it was decided we wouldn't worry about cost. I couldn't have asked for a better moving company to help us out. They stayed in contact with me the morning of the move before they arrived and got us out of the old and in to the new in less than 4 hours after being quoted for a 6 hour job. I couldn't have been happier. They also helped move a piece of furniture we already had in the house but couldn't get in to the room we wanted it. If we ever move from this house, I will definitely look to hire Kentuckiana Moving first.

Your Moving Source was the best moving company I've ever used! They sent 4 men who were able to move my family from our 4000 square foot house to our new home in around 6 hours total. They were very professional and all around great people to work with. They were worth every penny for our move!!

Rated four stars because there's always room for improvement. However my experience with these guys set the standard for other moving companies. They were prompt, kept open dialogue throughout the entire process (quotes, scheduling, updates, etc) and very professional. Took care of each item as they moved it and moved quickly with a sense of purpose. I will be using Kentuckiana Moving again.
