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.

Reviews for Hagerstown movers

The AT Movers team was fantastic to work with. We were in a pinch as we had just moved out of state but needed to also move contents we had in a storage unit by end of month. When plans with another company fell through, we found AT movers and couldn’t be happier. It was a pleasure working with the team for our move from MD to Texas. They were extremely responsive, communicative and punctual. Would highly recommend working with them for another move!

They were AWESOME!!! David went above and beyond by calling to check on the progress of the move. The movers worked quickly, there was no damage, and they packed the truck full and did it in one trip, even though it was a local move.

Thank you NYP Movers. This was a long distance move. The entire team was incredible to work with! Yehor, Alex, Max, Chris and Valadmir were awesome! They were professional, courteous and unbelievably efficient in every aspect of the move. The care and attention to detail in protecting our belongings were done in such a way as though each piece was priceless. We highly recommend them. The icing on the cake, the total cost was much less then the major moving companies. Great service.

The three man crew came in and moved my 3bd house in a cross town move in 6 hours. Including 2-man lifting a 350 pound air compressor out of my basement with no problems, no damage, and no complaints. They were polite, clean and listened to what my husband had to say when questions were asked. No damage was done to my house or the house we moved into. I would totally hire them again for my next local move.

Just moved from Pennsylvania to Florida and couldn't have been happier. Rose, the estimator, the office manager, and the driver who both picked up and delivered were all exceptionally attentive. The actual movers were METICULOUSLY careful with all our stuff, including artworks, thousands of books, and the usual family property. Best move I've ever had.

We were very pleased with this moving company. From the first phone call to the end of the task we had no issues. They were organized and prepared. They wrapped and moved our furniture out into the truck in three hours. I was impressed. Our furniture was moving into storage, so plan to use them again when we close on our new home,

My mother and I had to move our stuff while reading the bad while good reviews I wasn’t sure but in the end I am extremely glad I did they are one of the best I have had they came on time they were friendly and talked to my mom when she tried talking to themwhile still wrapping the furniture they moved fast, extremely careful with my furniture and they didn’t stand around they were constantly moving yes I did get a 2 hour charge for them driving down but let me tell you it was worth the money to bring them here and move my stuff. While closers ones may seem cheaper most are not as awesome as these guys that moved my stuff and it was a fair price for moving my stuff only $400.00

My "OTHER" mover called on the Holiday weekend and informed me they could not do my move on Monday. I had to be out because new renters were moving in on Tuesday morning. I called Great Nation on Saturday afternoon (the only mover that answered) and they were able to fit me in their schedule. I did pay $10.00 more an hour than the one I hired, but WOW, SO professional. They showed up on time, they were on budget, and no hidden fees. These guys worked so hard without a break and accommodated all my request.

We were fortunate to use Great Nation Movers. Rose and her staff were excellent. The movers were very friendly and worked with minimal break and interruptions. All items were placed properly and safely on truck. The strength displayed was phenomenal. They are top notch movers to carry refrigerators, freezers, and extra large file cabinets up and down stairs without any damage. We had some additional packing that Great Nations did when they arrived. I cannot say enough good things. They serviced the move 100 percent. That was a relief, so many companies turn over to 3rd parties which we did not want. Rose checked in before , during and after the move, she certainly is one of the best customer service representative I've ever dealt with. I have referred others to her to move and she is taking care of them as well. Highly Recommend this company.

Great experience with these movers. They were fast, efficient, and treated our things with care even while moving during freezing rain and snow. They even came in under the price quoted to us. I would 100% use them again and would recommend to anyone.

The lead man on the job was wonderful... Despite being terribly overbooked and very late he really rallied his team. If you need a timely move, this company overshadowed its crew and if you get them past the first move of the day, there could be issues. Also language barrier (other than the lead fellow) was significant. I don't think my move would have been successful without the lead- can't say enough good about him.

A&A Professional Movers came through in a last minute pinch. I can’t thank them enough. From the point of contacting them in the morning to the end of the day with the move being completed, it all happened within 12 hours!...on a Sunday! Thank you, A&A, for being there for me. I appreciate your understanding and am completely satisfied for a job well done!

What a pleasant experience! My sister and I were moving out of our parents home into our own town home across town. Amine was very friendly over the phone and his workers were not only on time, but finished everything in exactly the 4 hours I was quoted! Chris and Jose were very curteous and careful wrapping all of our furniture. Not only that they managed to maneuver large pieces through right walkways with ease. I would highly recommend them for my next move. Thank you Nova Movers for making today stress free!

I was worried at first because the prices we were quoted were so fair and affordable. I received estimates from other companies for over two-thousand dollars for our specific move - one was even closer to $3k. This was the first time I had ever hired a moving company so I had no idea what to expect for cost. We had 3 movers come to our home - they were on time and very professional & courteous. They moved everything we asked them to, and we even added a few things as time passed - they did not mind at all. They even taped up some of the boxes I had still been working on packing just before they arrived. Our total cost ended up being half as much as the lowest estimate I received from other companies when shopping around! I am beyond impressed and will absolutely hire them again when we move into our newly built home in 9 months... THANK YOU so much!!!

I highly, highly recommend Great Nation. I wish I could give them 10 stars. These guys are friendly, professional, reliable, prompt, accessible, responsible, and just so easy to work with. From the moment I contacted them via Thumbtack to ask for a price quote and the estimator came to give an accurate one. Rose has always been quick to respond. She was very willing to work around my crazy closing schedule. On the morning of the move, she contacted me to confirm the time and arrival of the movers. In my situation, I was buying a home and had a narrow window for pick up and delivery the next afternoon. Eric and his two other movers managed to move and pack my entire home, they will deliver tomorrow after I settle on my new home. I mention this because I think it shows how steadfast and honest these guys are, and how they won't go back on their word. They were truly a pleasure to work with, and I have zero reservations about recommending them to anyone and everyone who needs moving help.
