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 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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

A simple job of moving a queen sized bed and box springs and frame to my son's in a close by town. They also moved a TV upstairs for me at my home. Very professional and thorough in explanations of move.

Over the past few years, we've become professional movEES. And we couldn't have asked for more from professional movERS than the excellent service we got from Son Light Movers. They were friendly, polite and professional--on time, prepared, careful, hard-working, economical. We hired them to help us load up on one end of our move, then meet us on the other end to help unload. One of our all-time BEST moves.

Son Light Movers made us moving into a new house absolutely easy today. I've heard a lot about how movers stall when they're paid by the hour, but these guys definitely did not! They were fast and extremely courteous. I hope not to have to move again but if I do, I will certainly be using them! The total cost was what I expected and there were no surprises there. Definitely go with them!

We called these guys last minute and they were very good about accommodating us . I made the mistake of saying we only had one room of furniture to move , but we had 37 years of stuff! So the job was much bigger than they anticipated . They did not complain but moved everything quickly and efficiently on one of the hottest days of the year . They came in way under what a competitive Moving company quoted . I will tell all my friends to give Space movers a try . I hope to God I never move again but I hope these guys will be around if I do .

Outstanding level of professionalism and punctuality. Geoff even went to get us boxes to help us with our move and took extreme care of moving the furniture and not damaging our walls. The movers, John and John also extremely helpful and professional. I would say, excellent value for the price. Much better that some larger, national companies.

All-Pro Piano was hands down the best moving company Ive ever dealt with. I had to move last minute and I called around to other moving comanys which didnt return my phone calls or gave me a ridiculous price to move my piano. Then I got into contact with All Pro Piano _(Omar) I left a message and he contacted me immediately with a more then fair price. The next day (less then 24 hours) my piano had been moved to one location to another. I highly recommend All-Pro Piano! They went above and beyond!!! Thank you

I had Smoove Move and storage come on July 30th, 2020. I can only speak to the moving area of the business, not junk removal. I am taking one star off for the lack of professionalism and another star off the amount of work that was done for the price. I booked last minute; they did move most of my stuff and showed up relatively on time. If you are short on time and need a mover I think you would be ok, but I honestly will not be recommending to friends and family.

A very pleasant person to speak to. He is accommodating a short notice move with only a one day notice. Seems pretty amazing to me....will provide additional information once the move has been completed.

Even before the move, Geoff was very quick to respond and very accessible for any questions/concerns. On the day of the move, they were very timely - even 10 minutes early! Geoff and Sam were an excellent team for our one bedroom apartment, local move. They were incredibly efficient (never a wasted moment!) and friendly, yet professional (with us and with each other). They were a very pleasant and trustworthy duo. We were more than satisfied with our experience and will definitely be calling them for any future moving needs.

Very professional group of movers! I would use them again. All of my furniture arrived undamaged and was wrapped appropriately. However, they were not able to move part of my sectional out of my apartment.

I recently hired Boston Best Rate Movers to move me from my home into my new home. I had a last minute change in my moving date and asked them if they could come a different date. This company did so without a problem. They packed my old home up, storred everything in storage for a month, then delivered to my new home. They were professional and arrived on time. I would certainly hire them again. Thank you Boston Best Rate Movers. Jason!

They moved a 3-piece sectional about 30 miles, even nicely packaged up the pillows that go along with it. Was able to schedule on short-notice and they were very responsive and kept in touch with updates throughout the move. Very pleased with their service.

I called Geoff very last minute, and after figuring out what days he had available, I realized I had a VERY short deadline. So he brought two movers, AND helped move everything himself! We got all of my stuff out of my Worcester apartment and moved into my Auburn home in only two hours! They even hooked up my washer and dryer for me! They were early and incredibly fast. They did everything I asked and more, and they were unbelievably helpful and friendly. Hire these guys if you're moving!

I had a very heavy cast iron stove from 1924 to take apart and move down 2 flights of stairs and drive it 50 miles away to re assemble it in a shop. The guys were adept at taking it apart, moving it and putting it back together. They were a godsend! I love that stove but had to move it due to renovations in my apartment. It has a happy home in the store its displayed in now!
