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.

I hired Maybaum movers to move a one-bedroom apartment from Maryland to Pennsylvania. They did an excellent job, there was no damage to my items, the movers were very professional and worked very quickly. I would highly recommend them for your next interstate move.

The movers were professional and took good care of my items. However, there were WAY too many movers for a very small job and they did not re-assemble one of the two beds that were moved. Even though the move took only an hour and they used 4 movers for a small 2 bed rm move (I'm talking about only 5 very heavy items/ over 75 lbs) the quote remained the same at $350.

One of the movers REFUSED to move the furniture, etc. into the assisted living facility saying he was "being set up" to catch COVID. I told everyone I spoke to, or texted, that was where the move in was. My husband, who is recovering from hip surgery, had to help the other mover because we only had a small window of time to move my father-in-law in.

Egor and Egor (spelling?) moved us on 12/30. They were both very pleasant and professional. The price was very reasonable. The only surprise was me being charged $15 per mattress that they moved. I ended up moving two of them on my own. However, I could of overlooked that fine print in the contract that the owner sent me a few days before my move. This company is very responsive, and they move everything without breaking anything! I will be using this company again, and I hope that the same gentlemen move me.

They were on time, efficient, cordial, proffessional, amenable, and offered the best price. I will definitely hire Ally Moving LLC in the future and will recommend them to anyone looking for moving services. I moved from a one bedroom apt. to a townhouse.

We recently moved from Laurel, MD to Middle River, MD. David Church was very responsive and answered all of our questions. The day of the move went smoothly and the team of movers even showed up about 30 minutes early. They took great care in moving our furniture and even wrapped each piece because it was raining. We would definitely recommend this company to our family/friends and will be using them again when we are ready for our next move.

Second time working with JD the Mover, both times were outstanding experiences. Arrived at pickup location 15 minutes early both times, punctuality very important to me. Moved items as not to damage the item or the walls. If needed I will use JD the Mover again.

We had previously hired movers and they called to reschedule 2 days before. Thankfully Fast Moving reached out to me on thumbtack. They saved the day by having the availability to help us with our move. The apartment complex we moved from overbooked the loading dock, so we had 3 trucks fighting over one loading area and 2 elevators. The movers really went with the flow and did the very best they could despite this hiccup in the day. They were really efficient and still loaded the truck in about an hour. The place we moved to has many narrow stairways. They managed to get all the furniture in with little to no damage to the walls/floors. Would highly recommend!

Friends with a Truck moved two households for us. The owner was extremely proactive and communicative, checking in to make sure everything was fine. The first move was excellent, 3 guys moving a house from Arlington to Laurel MD in 5 hours. The guys were professional and did an excellent job. The 2nd move wasn't as good however. We had 2 guys come to move a 2 bed apartment to a place 3 minutes down the road, which took just as long as the first move. Neither of the movers spoke a word of English, but acted like they understood me which meant a couple of things weren't done correctly, such as forgetting their tools in the apartment and leaving some scrap that was supposed to be taken to the dumpster Overall though it was a very positive experience and I would recommend them and will likely use them again in future.

This movers were very responsive and not to mention reliable with a last minute emergency move. They displayed professionalism and patience. I didn’t have to move or help do anything. I was slotted for two hours and that’s exactly how long it took with no extra charge for additional hours. I am forever grateful.

First time I used movers for a move and VKH Movers were great! The were efficient and were great at making a pitstop at to pick up more furniture. They were also great at disassembling and assembling my bed. They took all the stress out of the process and would definitely use them again.

The movers were so nice! Moved everything heavy within an hour and all the little boxes in 30 mins. Very friendly and professional. (Nothing to do with the movers) The only issue I has was I was a little confused on the end total. I think I just misread but overall I had a great experience!
