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.

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.

Great moving experience. Nick, The owner was very responsive to my questions sent via email. Brandon and Chris were my movers. They showed up on time and were very professional and personable. They moved all of my belongings, many of which were fragile, to storage in perfect condition. They packed my storage unit very neatly. I am completely satisfied, and will recommend Abba to my family and friends. Great job. Excellent customer service !

My initial encounter with ABBA movers was not good. They did not come on my original date because who ever it is that answers the phones miss scheduled me. They were able to get me in the next day early in the morning. It worked out fine after that. The two movers that came were prompt, quick, efficient and very nice. They definitely made up for the error on their part on the original date.

I have to say, I’d really like an “ALL OF THE ABOVE” button! These guys were extremely responsive to my needs & schedule, the work quality was top notch, they were not only on time but early, and the work was well worth what I paid. I will hire these guys again, & will recommend them to anyone who needs a mover. I will be using them again in the fall for another short move.

From the first phone conversation with Mr Marquette, he showed professionalism and a genuine willingness to assist. My request was to move the contents of a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath home in Belle Chasse to New Orleans within 24 hours and Mr. Marquette accepted without hesitation. The team was on time and the job took about three hours. I was impressed with the genuine and caring nature of the team. They took the time to find out what my end goal was and made it happen. The team was excellent on the job. All items remained in the same state as before the move. I only wish I had contacted Abba Movers sooner. I would definitely use their services again and highly recommend to others.

I would highly recommended Tres Movers! These guys work really fast. I hired them to move my two bedroom townhouse. They arrived at my place at 8:50 am. They drove across town to my new place, unloaded my furniture by 10:12 a.m. Jim,Christian, and Miguel were very professional, hard working, and fast. If you are looking for a reliable company that lives up to the reviews this company is the one for you. Thanks again guys!

I am so grateful to have found Wall2Wall!! I'd also give them 5 stars in professionalism and value but it'll only let me choose three! They arrived on time, I was out of the old and in the new in no time! They took great care with every box and piece of furniture as if it were their own. Tim and his nephew are the muscle and Kaitlyn is mechanic!! I was exiting a stressful situation, but they maintained a quick and professional pace the entire time. Kaitlyn even helped by playing interior designer for me! I would HIGHLY recommend Wall2Wall ro anyone who is looking for a moving company!! I would love to say, and would honestly mean it, that I will use them again, but.... I ain't EVER moving again, this was it! The LAST TIME EVER!! LOL!! But, when my niece moves, I'm going to hire them for her!!! Thanks guys, y'all were awesome!!!

Mr Wilson and his team showed up on time and ready to go. They packed up the truck, kept my property clean and dry (even when the rain tried to change that) and had no issues with moving the larger and more difficult items up a narrow stairwell with confidence and ease. Would definitely recommend!!!
