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.

Amy was very easy to work with while scheduling the move. She even price matched another company to get my business! The guys that came to move me were excellent and super polite. The 3 of them worked well together to move all of my stuff as quickly as possible! Will definitely be using this company next time I move!!!!

The move was quick and efficient; movers were professional. Joshua and Mike took great care with furniture that my father made. Missing boxes were all located. The washer did not survive the move, but it could have been a problem for any movers going down the apartment stairs. The mover-in-charge called me twice because of a missing box, which turned out to be mislabeled. I appreciated the concern. I would recommend the company. Rates were affordable. Linda

I hired this company to move a few heavy pieces in my home. They moved 3 sofas and 2 chairs between 3 total floors. They did a great job. They were fast, efficient, and punctual. They were fast to respond and at our home in less than 24 hours. I highly recommend them.

These guys were awesome! They helped us move our heavy furniture downstairs from one apartment and upstairs to the next. They were on time and very friendly! We had our 3 year old daughter with us during the process and the guys were understanding and worked around her curiosity! If we ever need movers again we will be calling Chad and his crew! Thanks guys!

I needed help moving large pieces of household furniture to another house. The team was on time, polite, careful with my antiques, and worked diligently to complete the job (no lollygagging around). The price quoted was way more reasonable than other quotes I received and the quality of the work was way above the price. I would definitely use them again.

We ran into an unforeseen last minute issue and were forced to wait an hour to unload the truck at our new house. The first thing I asked the movers was to confirm when my 2 hour window started- and they clearly assured me it didn't start until they started unloading the truck. An hour later, they decided to call their boss who informed me we had to pay for the hour they had been waiting. She offered to split the cost which I was forced to pay because the truck had to be unloaded that day. I should not be responsibile when I specifically asked how it worked first thing. Not to mention, we spent over an hour helping them try to start their truck after they finished. While the movers were fast and friendly, there are several heavy boxes clearly labeled "kitchen" or "upstairs bedroom" that are all in the garage, along with a few scratches and dings on our walls.

Not only did they charge $210 to move two couches within our house, they didn't bring anything to wrap them with to move them and put several scrapes in our walls and tore up the paint. They said they would come fix it and set up a time to come and then called at 7am to try and come then since they had a more important job to do that day. Since that didn't work for us, several phone calls and two weeks later we finally get a nasty text message from the owner stating that she will only set an appointment that she knows we will keep and the only day that works for them is Sunday morning?! After all it is their busy season!? Excuse me if you would have done it right the first time you wouldn't have to set aside time from your busy schedule to come back and fix my walls! Ridiculous treatment to a customer that paid you a high sum for shoddy work. Stay away from this company!

By being Professional, keeping their word , being respectful, Handling peoples property with dignity and Care, being Respectful. Use Time Management Wisely. Be Honest. Don't Litter or leave your trash behind cleanup behind yourself. Drivers were late, were supposed to be at my residence between 8-9 didn't arrive until 10;32 they were unprofessional argued between the two, damaged my property, damaged the walls in my new residence, stood around on the job complaining, stating they needed to flex etc., it took them over nine hours to move me out of a one bedroom apartment and they had the assistance of my seventeen year old nephew., I'm still unpacking boxes as of this writing and finding broken items. I have submitted several photos to the company but have not heard back from them. Also one day last week I went in my storage bench looking for an item and notice my items were in disarray. Upon further inspection I notice my large white sock missing which housed my coins ; Quarters and Silver Dollars it was full to the top this is the way I saved my Quarters and Silver Dollars. Manager forced me to pay for a five hour job when the job really should not have taken three hours. Also I would have never hired a moving company from the Charlotte area. I was never made aware of that I was under the impression they were from the Clemmons NC area. When I questioned Darrius stated to me, he was from the Clemmons NC area he had to go to Pineview NC to drop someone off that morning that's why he was running late.
