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.

My boyfriend and I hired Hebert Movers to move the large furniture into our new apartment. We originally had planned on just using them for my boyfriend's furniture but then asked to also had another stop. Frank graciously added the location. Three movers showed up early, calling us ahead of time, and moved everything quickly, carefully being very courteous and asking us questions along the way. We were hesitant to hire a smaller company but were so happy with their service and so glad we went with Hebert. We are keeping them in our contacts for when we everntually buy a house!

Having gone through multiple moves, Esquire was great to deal with. Yury made sure the timeline was met and they even were able to deliver our things a day early which worked out well. Igor was the employee that came all the way from Boston to NC with our things and got everything done in a timely fashion after driving 16 hours. If you are looking for a reliable mover for Long Distance, I highly recommend Esquire.

They were nice but definitely a communication problem on pricing. They advertised $89 per hour for 2 man and 1 truck but charged me $109 per hour. Took longer than expected to pack up a small 2 bedroom townhouse. Spent $800+ for the move for things I didn’t really care about that I was donating. Nice people but I didn’t feel the price was fair and just went with the flow to get it over with. The last time I moved the same furniture was with 3 men 1 truck for $450(including tip).

The two men that moved my "hospital" bed and lift chair from my storage unit to my home were cordial, efficient, willing, helpful, expedient, professional and pleasant. They were late getting there, but so was I. Plus when they came to my home, they had to move furniture around, and they didn't complain. It wasn't easy for them. One item was brought up very narrow stairs to my upstairs bedroom. The value was excellent! Hope they didn't get too banged up. They took good care of my heavy furniture. God bless them!

Amazing! I can't some up for enough praise for these guys and what they helped me through. Anderson, Josh and Kyle are simply the best. I had another moving service cancel on me the night before they were supposed to come pack me out for my move to Florida. I found Mystic Movers on Thumbtack. I was of course wary of what I was getting last minute but boy was I wrong. These men were professional and courteous and very sympathetic to my situation. They brought all my heavy furniture down three stories with care to include a treadmill from the top floor. They disassembled my furniture that needed it and packed everything together to make it easy to find. Even including taking pictures of some things to show how it looked. Once all my pods were packed out they even helped me pack my trailer properly for the ride down. They turned a terrible situation around and oh did I mention in 100 degree heat. Not a complaint from them. I would recommend them to anyone and I am glad I was lucky enough to find them.
