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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

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.

This was our first time hiring movers using Thumbtack and I have to say Blakeney Services did not disappoint. We needed a couch and a loveseat moved outside, so that the charity truck can come get them. The charity truck had to reschedule due to bad weather and Blakeney Services was happy to reschedule also for no extra charges. Dominick, the owner, is extremely friendly, responsive and courteous. He uses his own workers, equipment, and doesn't subcontract them out. The price he quoted is the price he charged us; he didn't try to haggle to increase it or give us a hard time. Also, he uses contactless systems for invoices, billing and accepting payments. After moving the two pieces of furniture, he asked if there was anything else we needed to be done - he could have just left, but we appreciate him asking us that. The whole project took 10 mins if that.

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 :-)
