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.

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.

Reviews for Lakeville movers

Our packing and moving crews were amazing. Walt, Triston, Nick and Armondo were efficient with our time constraints and hustled all day. They went out of their way to start earlier than usual and were patient with our decisions on to where our stuff needed to go in the new house. I would highly recommend Hedberg Moving Solutions to anyone in the Twin Cities that are looking for honest hard working packers and movers. Thanks for taking the stress out of our move!!

The move took longer than it should have. They had only one experienced mover on the crew and they broke my desk. It has been over 3 weeks and they still have not resolved that issue.

Prompt and courteous, the guys moved a very heavy stacked washer/dryer from my second floor to my garage quickly and without any issues. Will definitely call them for any future moving needs.

Aaron did a great job with moving my furniture for a recent home staging project. He was prompt, efficient and moved my furniture and belongings with care and ease. I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again!

The Move Crew staff hustled to get the moving job finished as quickly as possible. My only issue was that they had touted that they would be less expensive than some of the bigger moving companies but ended up costing around the same because they bill you from the moment they leave their office. For someone like me in the South Metro this meant you are paying for an hour round trip for their commute.

Excellent Service, Very Accommodating with respect to schedule and needs, moved a small office to a temporary storage facility until our new office is completed; work consisted of executive desks, chairs, credenzas, server rack, treadmill, Konica copier multiple TV's and 14' conference table. Ceenergy properly wrapped furnishings to protect during move. Will definitely use them again to move the same furnishings from the storage unit to our new office.

The moving team was was fantastic! They were responsive & efficient. Was disappointed when I was charged for 2 hours work both times I used the service when the actual time for the each visit was no more than 90 minutes.

Showed up on time, worked hard in the heat, and did a great job on moving my treadmill. It was a bit complicated so it took longer than expected but everything turned out perfectly. Would use them again!

These guys hit the ground running (literally), were fast, friendly and did an excellent job with our move into a house. They worked hard and fast. Arrived early but called to let us know, asked if everything was to our satisfaction prior to leaving. Highly recommend.

What a dynamite crew we had! We had a huge move and these guys nailed it! It was a 12 hour day, but they were very meticulous with all our goods. Took minimal 5 minute breaks and even took apart and rebuilt two IKEA beds (which is no easy task). Friendly and professional. Will rehire and recommend to anyone! Rates were fair and within budget!
