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.

We hired Terrance for our move from a one bedroom apartment to a house. We thought it would take about 5hrs to finish the entire move, but it only took them about 3 hours! He was swift, friendly and very easy going. Really made our move so much easier!

Let me start by saying moving is one of the most stressful things in life. With that said, it's imperative to get a company that helps make the processes as smooth as possible. That wasnt the case with NK Movers. 1)After confirming my move date and time (11/1/19, 9:00am) twice with the company beforehand, I was angry when they didnt show up until 1pm. The main POC, Nadir, claimed that they had me "mixed up" with another customer named Lyn, which I know was bullshyt. Mainly because even if our names were the same, our addresses were different, so theres no way they couldve "confused me" with someone else. I honestly believe that he was being dishonest and booked with me knowing all along that they would not be able to accommodate my 9am request. But instead of passing on the money, he booked me knowing I would be stuck and unable to find an alternative company the day of the move.....essentially, forced to use the company. Shady business practices and untrustworthy. 2) They only showed up with a "crew" of 2 men instead of the 3 men I booked. Having one less man slowed down the process tremendously, which, in turn, costs more money. 3) The moving truck arrived with stuff already in the truck which took away from the space I could use for my items on the truck. It was essentially a partial move. I had to return to the house I moved from the next day in order to move the rest of my items that didnt fit on the truck because the space was taken. 4) The crew didnt have any packing or moving materials as promised such as tape or furniture wrap. They only had a few blankets which was helpful. 5) Since we started late, we didnt finish until 8:30pm. At one point the crew said they wouldnt unload my truck at my move-in location since it was getting late. I asked well where do you expect me to go or sleep with all my stuff on this truck and he suggested a HOTEL. I was offended and told him that my stuff WILL be taken and unpacked at my new home that day. One a side note...It seems as if the NK Movers Company subcontracts out the work to independent workers because the crew said they were not told about my move job by the main company (NK Movers). They finished a moving job in DC that morning before they came to me at 1pm and thats why they didnt have the materials and were tired. The 2-man crew was also angry because NK Movers didnt tell them that I was moving to a 4th floor unit with no elevators. Despite, they helped move my items upstairs by foot and worked diligently. I appreciated their hardwork. Overall the day was long, stressful and expensive. I most likely wouldnt use this company, NK Movers, again. Nadir attempted to stoke my frustration with a "discount" but the overall cost was still way move than I expected, especially since it wasnt a full move and there was only 2 men. Never again and not recommended....Sorry!

DO NOT USE THESE MOVERS!!! Nadir (owner) was rude and unprofessional and unapologetic or sympathetic to the fact that his workers left my home without notice after bringing the wrong truck size for the move that was suppose to begin at noon then then pushed back to 1PM and the workers didn't show up until 3PM . When I we finally spoke to Nadir after several ignored phone calls, he promised to send a new crew by 6PM and they didn't show up until 9PM which had my husband and I moving in the middle of the night. We paid cash to the 2 men that showed up who were actually pretty decent guys becasue we knew it wasn't their fault that the company they worked for messed up. Bad business!!!! A move that was supposed to begin at 12noon didn't start until 9PM and was never completed. To add insult to injury...Nadir cursed out my husband on the phone for complaining about our experience and is threatening to sue us claiming his workers never received payment. We paid the workers and gave them a tip which we did not have to do as the contract we signed was broken from the start by the company. We had to hire a whole new company to finish moving us the next day and spend an additional $600 on top of what we paid NK Movers. DO NOT...I REPEAT...DO NOT..BELIEVE THE HYPE ON NK MOVERS - THIS WAS THE WORST MOVE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED!!! More stressful than planning my own wedding.

Baku Movers were on time (early actually) and they were very helpful with our moving process. They were able to disassemble and reassemble our bed without breaking it which we appreciated. They also built our new bed frame from straight out the box which was nice. Cons: I wasn’t a fan of the number of breaks they took and how it seemed like they were standing around sometimes due to the fact that they are paid hourly. I initially thought it would be a 3 hour job and it turned into a 5 hour job. But I am not a moving specialist. But besides that, great job and thanks again.

I put my request out on Saturday morning...they were at my door Saturday afternoon. They were punctual, efficient, friendly, and prepared. They were fully committed to providing me with a great customer service experience....and they did. They moved furniture from one location to another. They went with me to IKEA to pick up several furniture items and moved those too. They let me know that if I needed some assistance with putting together the items from IKEA, that I could have a quote for that scope of work as well. The quote was more than reasonable. They worked as a team to make sure not only that the job was done...but that I was another satisfied customer. I am another satisfied customer !!! They also took with them all packing materials so that I had NOTHING to clean up .... take a chance on PROAH MOVERS...you can be the next satisfied customer :-)

They gave it a try; but was unable to move sofa from first floor to 4th floor due to size of sofa. I wish they would have measured before trying, ended up spending more money and took sofa apart in the effort.

The team of movers arrived ahead of time. They patiently disassembled , wrapped all the furnitures and assembled them once these transported to our new house. They finished the job in 5 hours just as I had expected. I am definitely recommending this company to others.

Let me start this review by saying, the crew that is actually performed my move were excellent. My furniture was wrapped better than I've ever seen in a move AND they worked from 9:25 - 7pm and did not even taken a lunch. Move cost and time provided in quote: 3 men/5 hours Actual cost and move time: 3 men/11 hours (subtracted the 1 hour lunch) All I will do is state the facts and let you make the decision whether or not to hire this company. 1) I wanted to buy 10 boxes but when I was told the boxes would be $25 (which wasn't a problem), but the delivery fee was $40. It's clear that they don't really want to deliver boxes to you. I guess it just sounds nice to offer the service on their website? 2) They build your estimate completely off of what you enter on thumbtack. So it would behoove you to pull a magical number of boxes that don't even exist prior to your move out of thin air to give them a number that would in turn give a more accurate quote. 3) They do not do in person estimates therefore their quote for your move will more than likely be off because they asking nothing about square footage. For instance, i 4) They do ask about levels, so for instance if you live in a townhouse-condo as I do with 3-4 flights of steps before reaching the two levels you actually live, you need to include the stairwell as levels. If they'd asked about flights of steps, I would have told them, but they asked about levels to someone who isn't in the moving business so I assumed livable levels. It was hilarious to me that the owner Quentin actually went online to see if I lived in a townhouse or townhouse condo. I'm not sure what website he looked at but it wasn't my community. In my community are 2 different styles of townhomes, townhome-condos (which I lived in) and apartments. 5) I put in thumbtack that I had 11-20 boxes at the time I requested the estimate. I was way off, because one of the movers apparently said I had about 80. Considering I hadn't packed any boxes at the time of the requested estimate I guess that number could be accurate. However if you're basing your business model off of a thumbtack form I filled out in like 3 mins vs. solid factors such as square footage, amount of rooms with furniture, livable levels vs flights of stairs, garage, etc...it would give them a more accurate quote to provide their customers. For instance, my townhouse condo was about 2600 hundred square ft with furniture in every room and stuff in the garage. My new home is 5222 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 3 levels. How in the world do you estimate 3 men for 5 hours for a move of this size. The money wasn't even the problem, it was the clearly bait and switch tactic used to give me a super low estimate knowing it would take way longer. Sure, be off 2-3 hours with your estimate not 7. 6) Quentin told me I didn't include disassembly and reassembly in my request and he is absolutely correct. But they also said it was included in their price, sooo I didn't think I need to. I assumed the estimate would include a calculation for it. 7) At around 11pm I called Quentin annoyed because of the significant difference between the quote, not even really the price. My kids had no beds in the house yet and school the next day. Needless to say they didn't end up going. I failed to mention after I let Quentin in on my concerns I hung up. This lead to about 5 missed calls from him, a voice mail, and 10 texts telling me how my mistake on the amount of boxes I guessed caused the 7 hour difference. He included screen shots of what I entered into thumbtack, but I already know what I entered. I guessed the amount of boxes, like he guessed it would take 5 hours. The only difference is, he's in the moving business and I am not. Oh yea, he also sent me screen shots of some other customers thumbtack request, the difference was she put 40-100 boxes and I put 11-20. Anyone that works with numbers like myself could see the ridiculous spectrum that leaves open to speculation what the true cost of a move would be if you can estimate a move on boxes where there's a difference of 60 boxes in the range, you probably should be a NASA scientist. Summary - Would I hire them again? Absolutely not. Should you? I'll leave that completely up to you. However, I will say that the whole manner in which the provide you an estimate is quote sketchy. Next time, I'll follow my intuition. P.S. Notice in all of the bad yelp reviews how the owner comes back not to necessarily apologize, but to cast blame on the customer and defend his business practices. This in itself should be telling... P.S. In Quentin's defense, I will say he did not my final cost down from the $1400 he tried to charge to $1200. P.S.S. My advice for Quentin is to spend more time growing and improving his business practices instead of sending angry replies full of immaturity, random capital letters to clients. If thumbtack would like, I'd be glad to prove your ignorance and post the portion of my lease showing a two-level condo-townhome. I will give him a high five because it did have a garage and if the questionnaire asked I would have told him. If it had asked if when you walk in my front door, you have to go up stairs before you get to the only to livable levels in my home, I would have said that. Words of advice (from one of your own employees) 1) Stop trying to compete with your African competitor that owns his own trucks. 2) Stop lowballing customers to get them in the door. 3) Stop telling your employees the only way to make money is to continue lowballing moving jobs. This isn't fair to them or the customer. 4) If I admitted above that I had more than 11-20 boxes, why reply to it. I'm not saying I didn't have a lot of boxes at all. I'm simply saying go do in person estimates and stop telling your employees you will not make money that way. Hey, you may not, but it would improve the accuracy of your estimates. But since accuracy is less of a concern than making money I guess it's not something you should worry yourself with. Summary: Take a business class or get your MBA. It'll do wonders for your business etiquette.

Very professional and friendly. The level of care they had for my stuff, alone, gives them above 5 stars in my book! They moved my stuff from storage, wrapped items that weren’t wrapped, loaded the truck with Precision and unloaded with care and placed my furniture exactly where it needed to be. And most of all not one scratch on my walls..They even assembled my furniture. All in All, they were awesome, you won’t be disappointed!
