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 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.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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.

Michael and his team moved me on February 26 and had to keep all my furniture on truck overnight as I wasn't closing on new property until February 27. They showed up on the 27th and moved everything in to the new property. They did a great job, were very accommodating and professional and their price was reasonable. I would definitely recommend Majestic Movers.

Lamar and George had to be the nicest, most professional movers I've ever hired! They were polite, efficient, and concerned for the condition of my furniture. Also, Alex quoted us a great price, and there were no surprises when it came time to pay. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a reasonably priced, smooth move.

Tom and his crew were exceptional. Crew was very friendly and they work HARD. Definitely recommend Tom over others claiming to have great service. We moved out of a 3 BR 1500 sq. ft home and just across town. They kept our items on a truck overnight and moved us in the next day. Not one thing was broken and we became very friendly with the crew. Highly recommend.

I used Space Moving today to pick up and deliver a dining set to my home. They were on time, professional, and courteous. It's important to me as a customer, for those I hire to do what they promised. That was definitely the case with this company. I was kept informed of each step along the way and there were no "surprises." They made it all easy. You can trust Space Moving to take good care of you.

We had a complicated move, including multiple levels and brand new hardwood floors and stairs we were worried about damaging. We couldn't be happier with the job Omar & Matt did! Communication was excellent and they arrived on time and well prepared. They took GREAT care in protecting both the piano and our home, and were extremely professional. I can't recommend them highly enough.

They were 4th choice after Monday movers' clerical error left me in the lurch when I had to be out by Wednesday night. They fit me in on Wednesday--and came an hour early after calling rather than taking a long lunch while I stressed out. I felt 100% confident that my property was in good hands; I met them on the other end. Poseidon is now my 1st choice!

Joe and Derek were awesome. Very professional and personable. Joe went out of his way to make us conformable. He even removed an old washer and dryer in the new house and hooked ours up. He swapped my dryer plug out to fit the existing wall socket. He even offered to take my cat in his pick up truck so that she'd survive the hour drive in peace. I'd recommend Here 2 Haul movers to anyone. Thanks Joe!
