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. 

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

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.

The Bellhops movers arrived early, which was appreciated (to avoid moving my furniture in the rain that had been forcasted). Both of my 'bellhops' were polite, professional and attentive to my needs and my directions on how to handle certain delicate pieces of my furniture. I was very pleased with their service. I would definately call on them again for help with moving.

Ezra and his team made moving furniture out of storage, EZ Breezy. They were able to schedule me for the next day at my request, carefully wrapped my furniture items and went above and beyond in customer service. There are many options out there in moving companies...do yourself a favor, choose EZ Breezy! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Two Bellhops showed up, were very polite and professional, and they helped us move furniture and boxes into a rental truck. It was a great help.

Fantastic moving experience. His team arrived exactly on time and were very quick. They did such a good job with the apartment furniture we called them back in two weeks and asked them to do the rest of our furniture from our house! Highly recommend.

Michael operates a professional, timely courteous business. I appreciate his flexibility and fair price to move several large pieces of furniture. I’ll certainly hire him for future projects.

Very efficient and professional. Very polite. Explained moving contract well. Cost-effective. I would use them again. Only concerns: I was told they provide wardrobe boxes and they no longer do Also, they only reassemble furniture that they disassemble--understandable but that was not mentioned prior to the move.

These guys were awesome, they showed up quickly and moved two large and heavy pieces of furniture for us. They had to go down three flights of stairs and through a courtyard and did so with ease. If you have stuff that needs to be moved and really want to hire a professional team but don’t want to break the bank then these are the guys to call!

Ezra and his team did a great job moving my furniture during my move. Ezra is very personable and communicated well with me throughout the whole ordeal. Him and his team were very professional and made their work first priority. It was a job well done for a reasonable price. I am happy to have booked him for my move and definitely look forward to booking him again in the future.

They got my furniture moved in about 1 hour. Minimum time is 2 hours. While I recognize this is how they make their money, I had several uniform shaped plastic tubs I asked to be added to the quote and which was told would not fit within the time limit. Obviously, this was incorrect. I also had provided detailed information about what needed to be moved, so it's unclear why there was such an error in estmating the time for this job. Also, they left huge scratches in the paint on my basement floor. I didn't ask them to place the furniture in specific locations in the basement, just to put it in the basement. I'm unclear why they needed to shove furniture across the floor instead of picking it up. On top of the scratches, they didn't tell me before they left that they had scratched the floor. They shouldn't have been in any hurry given there was an entire hour left in my move time. And the honest thing to do would have been to let me know they scratched my basement floor. They were friendly enough guys, and efficient with moving, but I won't use these guys again.

I will most definitely be looking to hire Haul Dogs for any moving needs in the future! We hired them to help us move out of one apartment and into a new one. The two men (Maurice and Paul), did an outstanding job!!! Both apartments were on the third floor and they moved the furniture and heavy totes with ease. They were on time and came ready to get the job done within the hours. Their cooperation and communication extended from between them to my family. They made this move quicker and easier than we ever imagined. Thanks guys!

Great guys, professional, work very fast and well, I'm actually going to hire them again for at least a couple more jobs! They had to move very heavy and bulky furniture from one house to a storage place, did it all very quickly and safely.

We moved from Kansas City to Independence last weekend with the help of Moving Kings. This was my first move using a professional moving company. I didn't know what to expect but at the end I was totally blown away by how fast and careful they could move my furniture. The move took under 3 hours total and I assumed it would be all day job. They had tools and gadgetson the truck that made moving different pieces easy. I was impressed with the care as well. All the blankets and shrink wrap they used to protect my sentimental pieces (grandfather clock and china cabinet) put me at ease. Jesse and his guys made this move so great I looked like a hero in front of my wife. The price ended up being way less than we anticipated. I will recommend these guys to anyone I hear of that needs movers, or anyone that asks me to help me move them.

Aaron, Jason and Mitch were very professional. They arrived at the expected time. All 3 were very respectful and responded to me needs and concerns. They were also very polite and made sure there was no damage to my furniture or home. Kourtney was also wonderful. Kourtney made sure I understood the companies policies and kept me informed about everything. I would use Moving Kings again and recommend them to anyone. Very reasonably priced. Thanks Moving Kings for a job well done.

It’s hard to imagine how this could have been a better experience. Mike asked good questions when I made the reservation which kept me from renting a Pod that would have been too small for my needs. He also stayed in touch during the interim between the reservation and the move. On moving day, Hayden and Cooper complied with the demands of my cranky soon-to-be-Ex-husband, and also helped get furniture to the thrift store truck that was being loaded at the same time. They were courteous and hard working, and finished the job at a pretty good time. In all, an excellent experience.
