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. 

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. 

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.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

If there were an option for 0 stars, I’d do that. To clarify, the actual move went smoothly. Nothing broken or damaged. It was discovered following my move that a substantial amount of money was stolen from the purse of my 85-year old mom who was waiting at my new home to accept the delivery of my items. No one was at the home but the movers and my elderly parents. I spoke to the moving company who promised to address this situation and attempt to get the money back. That hasn’t happened.

Ryan is very responsive to the first inquiry and all questions leading up to the move. They moved me into my new townhouse. They were very professional, focused and friendly. Jeremy and Maurice communicated with each other and got everything loaded into the truck faster than I expected. They had all the necessary equipment to make their work seamless. My only complaint was that I had arranged for a 10:00 am move and they did not arrive until 11:30 am because they had a move before mine. I would suggest that Ryan tell customers that there is a two hour window if you are not the first move of the day. Overall, I am very satisfied. I would use them again and recommend to others.

Quick moves truly lives up to the name. They were able to move all of the furniture in my home incredibly quickly, but while still still taking great care of my home and furniture. I will definitely reach out to them again in the future.

This was my first time using a moving company to move and I had the absolute best experience. The two gentlemen were so helpful. They worked quickly and were very professional. They made sure that none of my belongings were damaged and they put everything back together very quickly. I would seriously recommend them to ANYBODY!

Best moving company I’ve ever used. The guys showed up on time and hustled during the load and unload process. I’ve used other companies and guys seem to milk the clock. Furniture was wrapped safely and handled with care. Amazing pricing and excellent value. Will definitely recommend and use again if we ever need to move.

I had a piano moved with them. While they were 20 min late getting to the house, they were quick. They were in and out of the both houses. I got text saying they were at the house where it was being moved at 9:23 and got text saying they were on their way to my house at 9:28. It took them about 5 min to bring the piano in to my house. It took them longer to get to my house than them to move the piano from one house to the other. They had flat fee they charged, which is very different from other "piano" movers. And it was a lot cheaper than the cheapest quote I received. They were also very responsive. I probably got response back with quote in about 2 min from me sending the request. 3 places were contacted and Ryan was the only person responded. And was able to do it very next day. I would call him again if we need help with moving anything else.

They damaged a few of our items. They placed all of the boxes in one room instead of what most moving companies would do, place them in the room that is labeled on the box. We spent time afterwards organizing the boxes.

I had to reschedule three times and they were very understanding. I finally moved on the hottest day of the week. They were on time and the three of them worked well with each other. Upon arrival, they placed all the furniture where I wanted and put the beds together. They were excellent and I would highly recommended them to everyone. Job well done!

Our move was a difficult one, both emotionally and physically. We lost our parents suddenly and needed to clean out their home in order to put our childhood home on the market. Since I recently purchased a new home, I had no furniture and decided to take some of my parent's furniture cross country to my home. What is usually a daunting process, these young men were the most courteous, organized and quick. As our rate was for 2 men for an hour, one man did not show, but the Foreman immediatley swung into action. Now, instead of one young man, we had three. Yes, there was an increase in price, but the job got done expeditially. A couple of suggestions for anyone considering this team....Please provide them with extra masks. They work hard and get sweaty. Secondly, make sure you tip them WELL, I don't often see young men like these working this hard and being so respectful at the same time.
