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.

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 I could select NEGATIVE stars I would!! They pushed back my move 3 times in 1 day, then when they showed up said they weren't equipped to do the job I hired them for because the lady that took my info marked down the size of my move wrong.. THEN they promised to come back the next day for a discounted rate for the inconvenience the previous day only to NOT SHOW UP AGAIN!! Not only did they not show up a second day but didn't even have the decency to call and tell me they weren't going to be able to make it or didn't want to do the move anymore! I was understanding the first 2 times they pushed the move back but everything after was just RIDICULOUS!!! DO NOT USE THIS MOVER!

Talked to Brian needing a new sofa and loveseat moved from garage to inside house. I really needed it done same day and he found a way to squeeze me in between moves. All 3 were courteous and professional and got right to work. I will definitely call them for future needs.

I highly recommend Royal Relocation Services for any move, big or small. Zach, Caleb and Zeb were truly a pleasure to work with. They are prompt, professional, work well together and really know what they are doing. Zach was very accommodating when the move took an unexpected extra day to complete and didn't bat an eye when I asked him to return a large refrigerator back to the house it came from because it didn't fit in the new house. They also moved my 1935 piano with a broken leg with no trouble. We had one hiccup happen at the end of the move, but Zach and Caleb responded promptly to remedy the situation, took full responsibility and were very helpful to me in resolving the issue. I will definitely recommend this company to all my friends and family and encourage you to use them also.

THEY DID NOT SHOW UP THE LAST DAY OF MY MOVE. LEFT ME HIGH AND DRY AND COST ME A LOT OF MONEY! This is NOT a real moving company. It's a couple of guys with a dirty pick up truck in dirty clothes and work boots because they try to schedule moving jobs in between the jobs they get from their primary type of work. They also showed up almost 3 hours late the first day and did not want anything to do with helping me pack, even though that was in my job description. I am a disabled widow with 3 children and this guy, knowing I could barely walk by the end of the first day (which only totalled 4 hours), tried to extort $1200 from me in order to show up the second day, when this was clearly a $600-700 job at best, because he lives an hour and a half south of Kansas City and didn't want to make the drive back up to finish my moving job. One this good that I can say is that they are very strong and hard working. I think this is a guy who has two other companies in the construction industry and is trying to break into the moving business, but clearly does not have what it takes to do it. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AT ALL COST.
