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.

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.

Excellent service...my move was hassle free...

The job was moving a 2 bedroom apartment into a walk out ranch home. The movers were there on time, and there were 3 movers and a truck which was the agreement. I would rate the move 4.5 stars. Good people, worked hard, and I think the amount of time it took to get the job done was reasonable. I have 2 issues: 1. They do not tell you that they will not take hanging clothes unless they are in bags. I assumed they would bring wardrobe boxes but those were extra and it was not explained as an option when I signed up. I quickly bagged all my hanging clothes and they did take them. The movers were nice about that. This was not the movers problem, but the people I called when I booked the move. 2. With my dressers they wrapped them well (great) but lifted them down the stairs instead of using a dolly. While that might seem like a great idea, they lifted them by the tops which put a l of stress on the tops. I found a couple support blocks from the inner part of the dresser in the drawers once I looked in the drawers. Again, great move, great movers, but just a couple things I would improve on. I would without question have them move me again, so I think that's the highest recommendation I can give.

on the day of the move only one mover shows up the other decides to call in so they had to get someone else to assist. They got a u haul truck that was too small and we had to make 2 trips....they complained the entire time regarding how many floors etc when that was all in the description before hire. they kept taking breaks and the move was took entirely too long. They broke both of my dressers and my sofa set is all scratched up. I am very upset with the entire move and the quality of their work. I will never use them again!

The moving crew had to deal with non-stop rain which made things more difficult than I would have liked. There were many things Rent-A-Vet did very well: they were able to accommodate a late schedule change. They crew was friendly and professional. Junior, Jay and JT showed up 15 minutes early for the move, which I appreciated. Things that could have been improved upon. They could have brought a bigger truck. Ours was a temporary move from a 2-bedroom home to a 3-bedroom duplex while awaiting new home construction. As such, we had a pod to be filled with storage items - roughly 55% of everything we have went into the pod, which Rent-A-Vet did a superb job of packing. Not everything we had left to move into the duplex fit in the truck. This was a big frustration for me because it meant making several car trips over the next two days to get the remainder of our stuff. And the kicker is - the only appliance we moved was a small deep freeze. All other appliances, stove, fridge, washer/dryer, - stayed with the house. I was charged retail price for moving equipment - TV boxes for flat screen tv's; moving blankets; and tie-down ratchets. Kind of sucked, but okay. Finally, while I was happy with the crew and I respect how hard they worked, I wished they would have been more careful. Several nicks in the kitchen chairs; broke the hutch off my computer desk and managed to break the frame on the window to the back door of the house we vacated. Moving houses is never fun. Rent-a-Vet did a good job overall. Will probably use again moving from this duplex to our new home in three months.

Be very careful if you are selecting Bellhop Movers. Quoted six hours and took almost 12 hours for a very unprofessional crew to complete my 2400 sq foot move by 2am the next day. Never wrapped any of my furniture: 2 foot dent in my stainless steel fridge, used my furniture as step stool, mud on my office furniture, threw my golf clubs on the floor and that's just a fraction of the damage they caused to my house. Didn't set up any of furniture, appliances; dumped their moving supplies in my house and front lawn. Two days later, still no resolution and manager won't call me to explain what happened when I have been extremely fair and considerate. Select someone else unless you are moving your dorm room furniture.

Had a move scheduled for Friday 11/15 at 6 pm, the driver contacted me at 4 pm and said he was going to do a job in Illinois and would not make it back to the St. Charles area until after 8:30 or 9 pm and said he could do my move which was 1 table (small move) 1st thing in the morning at 730 or 8 am. The driver, Nick gives me his cell phone number and assured me I would be his first stop. Saturday morning 11/16 at 8 am comes along and I hear nothing at all from the driver Nick. In the mean time, I contact his cell phone repeatedly and receive no response. I also send a text message and also no response. Finally the shop opens and owner, Ryan finally calls back and proceeds to send me a message that “he will call him.” I never heard a word back from the driver, Nick or the owner, Ryan. I would definitely recommend staying away from these movers, seem like a fly by night, shady group that make promises and do NOT follow through, let alone contact you with a phone call. Extremely unprofessional!

I had read many bad online reviews for many movers I considered and I was very wary about moving. However, I can only so good things for Ryan, Otis and Stacy. They never complained. When I asked them if they can drop off 2 furniture pieces at Goodwill, they did that without any fuss. Here in the new apartment, the apartment was a long ways from the loading dock and I felt bad about that but Ryan said don't worry, we do this all the time! All my furniture were assembled properly. Nothing broke or was misplaced. It was really what you call white-glove move. A big thank you to them for a job well done. Also, another thing to note is that if you go with big companies, they will give you large window for delivery. This company tells you a specific date when your stuff will be delivered. We flew in and our stuff arrived the same day. So, we had a bed to sleep on the same night. They brought my car on a trailer behind the truck as well. So, I had my own car the same day we flew in. Can't beat that. Also, the price was very reasonable. I can certainly say that this was the best hire I have made on thumbtack (Believe me, I have never written such a big review!).
