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.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

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.

Awesome service! SuperSafe Movers is exactly what they mean. It should be Super Hero Movers! They kept me updated on their timing and moved everything efficiently and expertly. Tyler, Joey and Austin were polite and friendly. They never stopped or complained against a very tough move - 10 hours and 2 loads! Everything was handled perfectly with no damage or problems. I'd hire this mover to do all of my packing and moving. I recommend them highly!

I was extremely happy with my experience with The Move Crew. I hired them over a month before my anticipated move. The day before the move I added on an additional stop to pick up some items and a difficult treadmill that needed to be disassembled and put back together in the new place. My movers were very adaptable to the change of plans and kept the move as efficient as possible. Since I was dealing with three locations I was not able to be with them to supervise the entire time but gave them a list of what needed to be moved. They exceeded my expectations on this move and I was very surprised at the end that the whole move took less time that I thought it would with the last minute add on. I would highly recommend The Move Crew.

WOW, WOW, WOW! This moving team is phenomenal. Not only were they extremely friendly, easy to book with, and handled our belongings like they were our own- they also accommodated a last minute moving fiasco where they moved 3x the amount of boxes than originally planned. Due to our fiasco, we now need to move again and I will definitely be using the move crew again. 5 stars, hands down.

The guys who came to move didn't planned things properly and wasted a lot of time for rearranging the things in the truck. This happened even though we showed all the items to move before starting and even after repeatedly telling them that they are moving stuff in the wrong order. And they had try to charge us for 3hrs even though they moved only for 2.5hrs..

The movers were friendly and got the piano moved in one piece. They were going to be later than our agreed upon time, but they called and explained the situation and I appreciated that. Overall, it was a success. Since my brother and daughter had to arrange time off for this move and it ended up being later than thought is the only reason for a good rating and not outstanding.

The Move Crew helped us move into our first home from a third floor apartment in May 2016. We've used other movers that were slower and unprofessional by comparison, and were impressed with how smooth and easily everything went. They used large boxes on a dolly to make moving out of the third floor easy and to limit elevator trips. Once they arrived at the new house, they were great at getting unloaded quickly. It sounded like they were just getting started when we used their service, so hopefully they're doing well. Would definitely use again.

Both Chris and Jamie showed up to conduct my in-home quote -- nice touch. I'd had 3 previous quotes and total move weight estimates, and Chris's weight estimate was spot-on (the other 3 were low, which might have ended up costing me extra had I chosen any of them). Chris moved all of my stuff, point-to-point, from MN to AZ, on ONE truck and in 3 days. And he did it for less than the national brand name movers, who each gave me a 5-11 (business) day delivery window. Completely professional operation -- not one item was damaged or broken in the move. And Chris personally set up both my beds and reattached the heavy mirror on my dresser in my new home. I have not one shred of buyers remorse after contracting Robinson Moving Systems. I had an extremely tight deadline -- less than 4 weeks -- to move all of my stuff across the country to start a new job. No way I could have pulled it off without Chris and his crew's help. They earned every penny. And then some. Moving might be life's worst chore. But if I have to do it again, I'd choose Robinson Moving Systems in a heartbeat. It's a no-brainer.

I was really satisfied with their job. I had 3 people on time and had perfectly handled the entire move. Movers had everything handled with atmost care and shown their professionalism in doing their job. They were really loving their job and performing the things. I would really refer them for others. All the 3 of them are really supportive. Great Job Team. Keep it up..!!!

Had Drake and Joe help my wife and i move and cannot be happier. I have heard some stories of movers going slow to rack up the hours charged, but not these guys, they basically ran for 9 hours from item to item without our urging. They were careful to not damage anything and were super thorough about cleanup. Would hire then again in a heartbeat.
