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.

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’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. 

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 do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

I had to look for movers urgently since the originally arranged movers failed to show up and we were ready to move. Ahzon moving was immediately taking an action and gathered movers out to us. They were well prepared for our moving plan and delivered very large and heavy furnitures well to new house. Appreciate their work.

Top notch. Hire Stark Moving and sit back and watch them do the moving in the most efficient manner. Yasha and George helped us get our stuff on truck for an out of state move. Absolutely excellent from start to finish and worth every cent!

My boyfriend sold his house, and moved in to mine. We originally planned to move things ourselves with a uhaul. We spent 2 hours moving all his stuff to the garage thinking how easy it would be to get it into the uhaul. We drove to uhaul only to be told that our online reservation was not valid. We immediately got onto the app and started searching for help with movers. Stark moving wrote back within minutes and came the very next day to move our stuff, less than 24 hours later. They were extremely fast and efficient with moving. They put all our stuff together and in the places we wanted. They also made extra careful to make sure not to ding any walls. I really appreciated that. They also took our throw away stuff on the spot which wasn’t our original plan. I would recommend Stark moving for anything you need. They saved the day for us and did it at a VERY reasonable price!

After researching various movers, we went out on a limb and picked Flash Moving Company for our move. These guys are great - Fast, Focused and very Professional. They wrapped all furniture and fragile packages like television, etc. carefully. During loading as well as unloading, they were mindful of walls and corners. All furniture was disassembled & re-assembled correctly. Everything - every furniture piece, every box - was put where we asked. We had incredible experience with this company. If you are looking for a reliable, cost effective and hassle-free move, I would highly recommend Flash Moving company.

After talking to a few companies, ended up going with Centaur Movers and they did a fantastic job. They moved a 2 bedroom to another 2 bedroom. Very speedy, efficient, and careful with all our items. They were even very responsive and flexible when it came to an issue that arose. Thank you, you guys really rock!!

I hired Nayman moving company last minute and they did not disappoint. When I spoke to him, he said he had to get his team together and they’ll be here in two hours. He called me when they were 30 mins away and came right on schedule! They did not waste any time and moved everything in about 4 hours. Very fast, efficient, and super professional! They also have a card reader for an easy payment. I recommend this company to everyone and will definitely be contacting them again.

Super efficient once they arrived, but they arrived outside the window (by almost 2 hours...) with no notice until we called them twice. All of that meant moving into our new house at 9pm. I’m sure my new neighbors love us already... but once they arrived they were very excellent to work with!! I would likely recommend/use them again despite punctuality and communication hiccups.
