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.

Dealing with Hebert Movers was a breeze. They arrived with a truck big enough to move everything. They were able to complete the whole move inside the time frame they had originally estimated. The three guys had a great personality and worked together well. The only thing that was damaged in the move was one bottle of nail polish, due to how it was packed, not a fault of the movers.

My Wife and I flip houses and have used a few different movers on over 20 different moves. It can be a challenge to find a dependable mover. Space movers will be the only moving company we use from now on. I have never seen a moving company where the owners is on the job, such a nice change. They were really nice down to earth guys also. My Wife and I could not believe how hard they worked, and it was 90 degrees out, but they worked straight through until the job was done. They handled everything with such care. The packing was done perfectly. Thanks again to Space Movers. We will be calling for another move very soon... Steve M.

I was very impressed with the 2 young men. I had a 3 hour move plan and 5 rooms of furniture. The men wrapped everything moved out the furniture from my apartment and in to my condo in 2hrs.45 minutes. The men treated me very well and put everything exactly where I wanted it . I would not recommend this moving company to anyone who is planning to move.

We hired Stripes and Solids to move a pool table for us. They were very accommodating throughout the whole process, and did a great job with the move. They were able to show us where the best place for the table would be, and we are very happy with their work.

Movers Near Me, were great, great communication, easy to talk to. I had spent a whole day talking to movers and long distance brokers before talking to Dillon. Omg my head was spinning I sent him a long list of questions he answered them quickly and in great detail. He put me at ease. I never meet him but my husband and parents did and they said they were the nicest and most professional movers they ever meet. I would move with them again in a heartbeat. The price was great too, not the cheapest and not the most expensive so you know when when it comes in the middle that he truly know his business, and what things cost.

From the time I placed a request for a moving quote with Frank until the move today...it was smooth and easy! We had 2 great guys do our move that were awesome! Even though there was a hiccup with me giving a wrong address, they brushed it off and continued on without any issues! I will definitely be using them again when we buy our next home in the near future. Great prices and professional work! Will recommend to friends and family. Thank you, thank you!

Ben and his team are amazing! They were professional, communicative, open and helpful throughout the process. Moving is already stressful enough, and I was so glad that I found the help I needed from Next Adventure Moving. I had to change my moving date a few times, and Ben and his team were so understanding every time. They answered all of my questions and made sure to communicate beforehand any changes in the plan or the rate that they charged. Another plus was that Ben helped my family set up our washer and dryer. His expertise was so helpful throughout! The move went so smoothly and easily that day because of this team of dedicated, friendly, honest, and helpful people. My family is now settled at our new place, and I am so grateful for Ben and his team.
