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.

We have had a variety of movers in different states, and we know the difference between good movers and average movers and bad movers. These guys were great! They packed our items in PODS and skillfully used all available space. They worked nonstop, and they always exhibited a positive and friendly attitude. Pros all the way!

what can I say- HIRE THIS COMPANY!! They moved us from 7500sq ft down to 2000sq ft. That's a lot of moving and a lot of stairs. I found them on thumbtack and hired based on their reviews. From the first contact with Alex they were responsive and professional. Communication was excellent. They were moving me after an early morning job that ran late. They never complained about how much stuff we had to move or how many hours they had already worked that day. Poseidon sent me Kevin, Luis and Dmitri. These guys were truly AWESOME! start to finish. Would hire them again and recommend to anyone that doesn't want to worry about a move. they took great care of us and I feel they charged us a great price for the work involved. - Milissa and Brenden

J&J are very affordable and fair with their prices. They arrived at the time we were promised. Extremely careful with our furniture and other belongings. Very kind and respectful, and attentive to the smallest of details. Would I recommend J&J? ABSOLUTELY! And best of all, we were moved promptly, with no delays or problems whatsoever. If a responsible, courteous and attentive to their customers' needs is a moving company you're searching for, then look no further - you have arrived with J&J Moving Company!!!

Spartan movers did an excellent job for us today. They arrived on time, wrap up furniture with blankets, dissemble and assemble in the professional way. All of the job was done in top quality. In the same time, the price of total is very competitive low. I would strongly recommend the spartan movers to all.

I’m so impressed. Sincerely. These guys are absolutely amazing! The reservation, quoting and inventory system is easy to use. They’re responsive and communication was easy and quick. They arrived on time. Immediately got started. Moved quickly and with care. They clearly know what they’re doing. They inspire confidence throughout the entire process. They were friendly and courteous. Extremely professional. Top notch service for a very reasonable price. My move was challenging with difficult, heavy and awkward home gym equipment and because the house I moved into has a sloped and curved driveway a truck could not go up. The team moved an entire truck full of items up a hill by hand!! And they were careful and quick with a positive attitude. They pushed hard the entire time (a 10 hour day). I’m grateful for how hard they worked and how comfortable they made the experience for me. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. No hesitation. Thanks for making this process easy, guys!

I hired Eric to move my daughter out of her apartment in Massachusetts, to a location in southern Maine. From our first phone conversation, to Eric's last text informing me everything arrived safe and was unload, Eric was extremely professional. He arrived on time, worked quickly and safely, and responded immediately every time I had a question throughout the process. I even asked him to change the time of the move, and he was receptive, and pleasant. I recommend Eric's services, and will use him again if the need ever arises.

Wish there was a "very good" rating. I would have given Baystate an "outstanding" rating, except that they arrived at the pick up site later than expected. Even so, they still completed the furniture move on time. Super polite guys, very friendly and professional. I'd definitely hire them again.

Work Quality was excellent. They were careful, attentive and thorough. Professionalism was excellent. The gentlemen were solicitous, pleasant and polite. Responsiveness was excellent. They remained in constant contact confirming dates and details. They were also very responsive to our time constraints. Value was excellent. Efficient, courteous service at a reasonable, competitive price. Punctuality was superb. They kept us appraised of their estimated arrival time and were early to arrive. I will definitely use them for any other moves I may have.
