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.

Reviews for Brockton movers
Racquell H.
The crew was very professional when they arrived and moved us out pretty quickly. Just two things: They arrived on time but didn't begin moving until almost 1030. Also, they weren't able to move my refrigerator. They could not figure how to get the doors off to take it out of the house. Unfortunately, all of my appliances are still back at my old residence. I will have to pay another moving company to move these items.

Round the Clock Moving did an excellent job with my move. I reserved two specific days to move furniture before and after a major renovation. They arrived on both days when they said they would and moved all of the furniture from the 2nd floor—smoothly and quickly – without a hitch. Mackeile and his team were fast, friendly, and professional. They treated my belongings with care, and completed the job to my great satisfaction. And they did so at a reasonable price. I would definitely hire them again in the future for any moving needs. I highly recommend their work.

I was beyond pleased with my move from Move ON. They carefully wrapped all of our furniture and belongings and before we left had us check the truck to ensure everything was secured down. They also put together a queen bed set. Overall 10/10 experience. Would highly recommend them and their pricing is beyond reasonable. No need to contact multiple movers - these are the ones!

CapeWide Green Movers was a literal life saver! I needed to quickly find a moving company who would pack our 4 bed/2bath house from top to bottom in less than a week and move us to our new home! When I reached out, they responded right away and weren’t discouraged by all the items we owned. I felt their price for the value was fair and I cannot thank them enough! I will be using them again and will be recommending them to family and friends!

The movers came early to pick up location and helped disconnecting the washer and dryer from garage and bring it back to drop off location. we had a small miscommunication where the movers stepped inside pick-up location house before I reached, and that made seller frustrated and I needed to apologize for their action.

Yesterday I had booked with a different company to move my refrigerator to a new location. Unfortunately that company stood me up & I was in desperate need to get the job done ASAP. I jumped on here and reached out to Boston Movers. They got back to me VERY quickly and were able to complete the job last minute for a reasonable price. Thank you!! 10/10 would reccommend and will be using their services in the future.

I hired Po for a small home move and I will highly recommend him for the following reasons: 1) Customer satisfaction is his utmost priority. He makes sure to ask questions and clarify again so that he captures exactly what the customer wants. 2) He was very polite and courteous. You can tell he is a disciplined professional. 3) Very hardworking, the move was smooth and trouble free. No single damages to any of my belongings.

It took a very long time getting my furniture out of the house although there were three guys I only saw one guy, the driver 95% of the time moving furniture from the house. However, all three helped in bringing the furniture in when we got to my destination. All of my furniture had scratches on them and my outdoor chairs were cracked. The positives are they were on time and they made a great effort in getting my refrigerator through the doorway which was too small. I will not be using this moving company again in the future. Thanks,
