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.

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.

We were looking for someone to move from an apartment in MN to an apartment in Chicago. Brandon was courteous and very responsive to all my questions through out the process of hiring to end of the move. His estimates for the time to load, travel and unload were perfect. He and Andrew were very respectful of us and our belongings. I would absolutely hire Brandon again for another move.

Flat Rate Quote to move a portion of a 5 bedroom home 26 miles - estimation of 8 hrs - Movers were over 2 hrs late (they ran out of gas) - Movers drove onto my lawn at my new home and damaged my brand new driveway all along the side of AND tore up the newly laid sod - Movers drove onto the lawn at my old home - Damaged un assessed - Possibly damaged the underground sprinkler system at both homes - The platform they placed on my front decking gouged up and scratched the brand new front porch - An estimated 8 hr job took 16 hrs - After 16 hours - they still left the following items behind that were part of the initial walk through of items to be moved: - Patio Furniture - Clothing / Coats in Closets - All Lampshades - Glass Table Tops - Treadmill (they wanted to charge me extra to move this) - Lawn Mower / Compressor / Snow Blower (They claimed they needed a special license to move these items) - Kitchen Chairs Due to the extensive damage caused by their negligence, I have deferred payment of services until they repair/replace the items damaged which equates to several thousand dollars (Their quote to move = $950) They have filed a claim with their insurance company, however, I have communicated that I will defer payment until I receive satisfaction on the damages which has yet to occur. TK Movers is now threatening to sue ME / place liens on MY home and ruin MY credit if I don't pay them immediately.

TK Movers did a fantastic job. They were on time. Travis came with his two sons and they were friendly, efficient and very nice. They showed me damage ahead of time when there was some to make sure I was aware. They worked in very hot weather and it did not even seem to affect them. They were great about making sure my animals did not get out. They moved furniture to the rooms I wanted, and when I changed my mind on a couple of heavy pieces they were very nice about changing where they had originally been asked to set them up. I would definitely recommend TK movers.

AJ and crew showed up on time, helped pack a portion of our furniture into our trailer and the rest into their truck in an efficient manner and completed the move in a shorter period of time than I thought possible. The price was just as he had quoted and he even took some travel time off the final bill as he initially quoted. It was a great experience and we would definitely use Paul Bunyan Moving again!

Tyrel at Truecare was very quick to respond to my last minute need to move my washer and dryer from my mud room to my garage for a few days while we had a new floor installed and then move them back again. We set up a time and he was great about calling and letting me know when he would be here. On the 2nd half of the job he put us on the schedule at the end of a very busy day on a Friday and still came out about 9:00 pm. He communicated early letting us know his timeline which worked for us. He could have just said it’s too late, but he wanted to get it done on the day we agreed, as his weekend schedule was also busy. He and his partner were very careful and professional and did a great job. I highly recommend Truecare and Will definitely use them again when I need a moving service. Denise Bauer
