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 Saint Cloud movers

Very nice people to work with. The move went great and I would refer TK Movers to anyone planning a move!!

All of my items were boxed in storage and required little packing, but even with that taken into consideration the crew worked quickly and swiftly. The longest part of the move was actually the drive time, not the move itself. The crew was very friendly and careful not to damage any items (or walls/doorways of my new home). Additionally, Branden worked with me to negotiate a fair price based on my budget. I've moved a lot of times in the past, but this was the first time I hired a company to do the moving for me--great experience!

T&K Movers are TOP NOTCH! We are in our late 60's. Tanner and Bernie couldn't have been more helpful. We moved from a 4 bedroom home in the city to a small cabin up north and they worked their tails off getting our belongings moved safe and sound over 150 miles and a very muddy road. They are the BEST!

quoted $360 for a single bedroom move. ended up being $480. Not sure how they underestimated the quote by 75% but whatever... Moving laborers were 2 hours late. Apparently "we'll start the job at (insert time) means "we'll start heading your way from whatever it is we are". I wasn't given a time RANGE of when they'd be here, I was given a time.

Fantastic in every way. Willing to pack way more than I expected and in a reasonable amount of time. I could not have moved without them!

These movers were super! I would definitely recommend them. They were wonderful to work, with very responsive to my inquiries and just a delight to work with. Young adults, but very professional. Loved working with them.

We had a cross town move with a good deal of stuff. Tanner and the team made quick work of it all and couldn't have been nicer or more professional. They helped rearrange things and even set a few things up for us. It was really cold but it didn't bother them at all. It had even recently snowed and they made sure to put down rugs to protect the carpets in our new place. We really appreciated everything they did for us. We would highly recommend them for your move! We'd give more stars if we could!

They were very punctual both with responses and with timing! I had two couches moved up three flights of stairs in no time. They work very hard and it’s clear they want to help out their customers in any way they can. Definitely would hire them again.
