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. 

Reviews for Durham piano movers
Pushan B.
I had a great experience with these guys. This was quite a challenge, moving down an upright piano down 3 floors with narrow turns! Not a single bump, scratch against the walls. Look no further. If you have to move a piano, hire Get it Done movers!

Willis Moving and Hauling were very professional when it came to moving my piano. They made sure that the piano was taken care of while loading and unloading it. They were very responsive when I very first contacted them. They were also very affordable!

These guys were great! They moved of a piano between Winston-Salem and Durham for me. The piano arrived safely, in great condition. Throughout our exchanges, Bobby responded quickly and clearly. They dealt with the very heavy piano easily-- I was impressed, and glad I didn't try to do it on my own or with friends. Would definitely recommend them.

I needed belp unloading a shipping container and placing furniture, including a piano. The guys from Covenant called because they finished at an earlier job and were a available earlier than requested which worked well for me. They were very professional, polite, and reasonable in their rates. They were able to move my upright piano into the house as well which was a big relief knowing I wasnt going to struggle to find someone to get it moved into the house. I would definitely recommend Covenant Moving and will tell my friends and neighbors. Thank You!!

Just had Dirul and Don come move a piano from my garage and into my house in Durham. They were affordable and within my budget, coming in on the lower end of the quotes I got (some quotes I got were twice as much!). I really appreciated how responsive they were. They were prompt, friendly, efficient, took steps to protect the piano, etc. They were really easy to work with and Dirul was very prompt in responding to all of my messages and questions beforehand as we worked on scheduling. They're good (and strong) guys doing hard work with a great attitude. I would definitely hire them again and I heartily recommend them.

I made arrangements to have Juan Willis Moving to transport a piano from another home to our home. He texted me the morning of the appointment to reschedule because an emergency had come up for him. We rescheduled for later in the week and he confirmed a one hour window in which he would arrive. When he didn't show up or call, I texted him to tell him that I was going to find someone else for his lack of customer service.
