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. 

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. 

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.

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.

TK movers did a fantastic job moving my wife and I from an apartment to our first house. We had some time constraints which put some logistical pressure on us, but Tanner and his crew handled it with ease. They were professional and courteous. Very joyful in their work. Nothing was damaged in the move. Would highly recommend!!

I paid $210.00 to Ruth Movers to move a murphy bed from an apartment to my home, 20 minutes away. Three men came, tried to move it into the 1st floor bedroom, but couldn't get it to make the corner. I suggested they try it with the bed in a vertical position. Without measuring, they told me it would "DEFINITELY NOT FIT." I didn't question again because they were the professionals, or so I thought. They left the bed in my living room. I then called my neighbor, a cabinet maker, to ask if he might have an idea of how I could dismantle the bed, to make it fit. He looked at it and said it would fit if moved in the vertical position (which I had suggested to Ruth Movers). He took very precise measurements and made a template and it was evident that the bed could be moved in, with room to spare. I immediately called one of the movers, Parker, and asked if they could come back to finish the move. He said he was off duty and I would have to call the office on Monday. I spoke to the owner, Bridget, on Monday and I was told she wasn't going to pay anyone to come back and spend 10 minutes doing the job they were paid to do in the first place. I believe these people call themselves "PROFESSIONALS". There was nothing professional about the movers or the owner. Moving a piece of furniture through a doorway is often like solving a puzzle...obviously, this company isn't up to the challenge. MB St. Paul, MN

We were moving a 5 bedroom house were looking to get 5 quotes to both pack and move. Cost wise, On call Services was comparable to one other company and significantly lower than most of the big name companies. What sold me with On Call Services was the initial phone calls I had with Asia and Kia. Their positive and upbeat attitudes along with quick responses were excellent. Both the packers and movers showed up on time, were extremely respectful, very friendly and hard working. After our moved both my wife and I commented on how happy we were with the service and value that On Call Services provided. Great work!

I had to reschedule, twice, due to delays in my home remodeling project. I ALWAYS received a prompt, professional response to my messages and requests to reschedule. The movers handled my furniture with respect and care, and went above and beyond what I expected. I would and will highly recommend CEENERGY PROFESSIONAL MOVERS

Tanner and his crew were great in facilitating our local move. They kept a positive attitude throughout, and never made us feel like it was a hassle. His group is friendly, and are great about accommodating you with where you want things moved and how. Their price was great, and I would definitely recommend them.

Very disappointed in my move… It took these guys 5 hours to move a 1 bedroom apt. with barely any stuff… 
The biggest issue I had was they called 30 minutes before my scheduled move time and told me they would be over 2 hours late… This caused me to miss my move out time with my apartment and I was charged a $150 late fee at my apartment that I was moving out from. They did not give me any heads up besides the phone call 30min before the move and then proceeded to take over 5 hours to move a 1bedroom apt…. 
I contacted support after this and they told me they would work something out since they moved the date so last minute. I waited weeks and decided to email them again… Ended up sending a total of 7 emails and calling 3 times and they didn’t respond to any of it. FOUR months later I finally called them back and asked to speak to a manager and promised she would look into my situation and get back to me by end of day.... 
 YESTERDAY. I even called 30min before they closed to make sure they called me back and NO ANSWER. Still have not heard back from them and the manager has not returned my calls! I cannot believe this customer service, I am being completely ignored. Very disappointed in this company and will not be using them again for any moving services and if you expect any help or customer service if something goes wrong- do NOT contact them or expect them to return any calls or emails! UPDATE to their response: It was 4.3 hours, and I spent MONTHS trying to get ahold of them. They ignored over 10 emails, didn't return calls (about 6 calls) and did not respond to emails and calls for over 3 months. Even yesterday, I asked for a callback and got nothing. I am writing these reviews because I have no other way of getting in contact with this company- and after reading handful of reviews from other people they tend to just ignore anyone who had issues with their move!

Tyrell was very good at his job. He was able to move all the glass and sensitive electronics safely with out a scratch. After moving to the new house we found out that we were not able to fit a couch and there was no place to put it anywhere else. He was immediately able to call one of his friends and help us out with the disposal.

Aaron and Jake were the assigned movers and they did a great job in moving my stuff. They are super quick and they did everything in under 3 hours which in my past experience took easily over 4 to 4.5 hrs . They put the furnitures in required places and worked out a very tight corner to out my sofa in the basement . They can still better themselves by bringing wrapping materials as well. They do have all blankets and none of my furnitures got a single scratch . Very happy and recommend everyone to try them out for their moving needs .

I had to move 2 times in 3 weeks. I scheduled last minute and they were very accommodating. They arrived at the agreed time, was able to move our trailer in and out of the garage without difficulty, and worked quickly to complete the job. I would recommend again and again. Thank you so much for your professionalism. Julie W. Nurse from Indiana
