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.

The moving team showed up early (they called to make sure we were available), were not phased by the circumstances of the move and cheerfully moved the organ as expected. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Worked with my schedule to get my treadmill moved to the basement. Was able to take a portion of it apart while moving to get through the doors.

Smooth move and friendly people. Very professional and very fast. It was a small move. We did all of our own packing and they did the heavy stuff - moving all of our heavy boxes and furniture from a 2nd story apartment to another 2nd story apartment.

Friendly guys who moved my items from one room to another due to a house remodel. They were quick and made everything fit in one room. I will be hiring them to move the items back after the re-model is finished.

Yesterday, Hedberg performed a moderate scale domestic move for my family, transporting furniture and other belongings from Minnetonka to a new rental home for my son in Robbinsdale. Both of us were surprised, and extremely pleased, by the professionalism, care, cheerfulness, and speed with which Hedberg's 2-man crew performed this job. Despite uncooperative weather (rain whenever heavy items had to be moved from truck to house), the entire operation took less than two-and-a-half hours. No damage at all. Like magic, the Hedberg crew turned my son's new place from an empty shell into an attractive home. The short duration of the job also kept the cost down: less than $400 for the entire move. Homeowners can save a lot of money by preparing sensibly for the arrival of movers. Thank you, Hedberg, for a great moving experience!

best service i have had in a very long time. rang them on a Saturday morning to move a 450lbs elliptical machine from a garage to a basement. they were at my place 30 minutes after my phone call as promised and the machine was in my basement, unpacked, and ready to use within an hour. fantastic couple guys, great office service and what had become a real pain in my neck after a multitude of other local movers could not do, these guys just did it, no problems at all. as i said the BEST service i have had in a very long time. highly recommend. thank you.

Brandon and his crew did an excellent job helping move my 89 year old Mom from Minnetonka, MN to Red Lodge, MT. They carefully and meticulously boxed everything and wrapped the furniture. They were flexible with timing, and also flexible bringing some things to her new place, and other things to a storage room for us. I highly recommend America's Movin. Ask Brandon to send my phone number, I'd be glad to talk about it.
