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. 

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. 

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.

Hornet Moving moved us out of our apartment and into our new home in April. Trey, Chris, and Trey were professional and they were quick to move us from our much hated apartment. They were also kind enough to remove their shoes before walking on our new carpets upstairs. I think it would have helped them to have some blankets or something to walk on though. One item was broken in the process by accident, however, Hornet Moving quickly reimburse us. We're very pleased with the moving experience. This was the easiest move I ever had! Thanks guys!

I moved into a new home. The movers damaged the walls and the floors. They also took longer than expected/needed. I had a lot of boxes stacked 4 high. Instead of using hand trucks to move the stack, they moved the boxes one by one. On numerous occasions I saw them on their phones. This is very frustrating when you’re paying $110 per hour. And I wasn’t told about additional charges for moving a front loader washer and dryer when I scheduled the service. I would think that’s pretty standard items but it was classified as extra heavy and I was charged an additional $50.

I have used these guys several times now and all I can say is wow. They were punctual, professional, fast, reliable, and just a fantastic value for the price. They have their own box truck, which was really nice. Even greeted my dog. They responded quickly, set up a time and got the move done in no time. If you are looking for a mover, then you have found an awesome one here. I have no issue recommending them to anyone I know who needs help moving.

Having had several horrible movers in the past, I gave 60/40 hard scrutiny before I hired them. I tried everything in my power to exclude them, but Travis was very responsive and delivered according to my needs. The communication was impeccable and there was stellar flexibility to meet my peculiar long-distance move demands. The day of the move came, they showed up a little late, but made up for it in an expeditiously meticulous load. They loaded my 4/2 two-story home in 1.5 hrs. My load was dropped off quickly the next day (6-hour drive to the new home). The things that stuck out with Travis and his crew was that they were professional, courteous, and very gentle with my items. Travis wouldn't let me lift a finger for anything. Having moved several times over the past 15 years using a myriad of different movers, Travis ranks up there as one of the best professionals that I have ever used. Thank you very much for your services and I wish you much success!

Get It Home was absolutely amazing. They saved the day after original movers did not come through as planned. Within less than 1-1/2 hours of calling, they were in our driveway ready to work! M We truly cannot say enough about how great they were. Responsive, fast, dependable, honest, hard working, energetic and very enjoyable. While this was only a temporary move as we await completion on new home, we will ABSOLUTELY use Get It Home for our final move in 3 months. Can’t wait! Thanks for being a top notch company. 👍🏾

The two young gentleman who helped me move really helped ease my on-going anxiety of moving being my least favorite thing to do. I had boxes and furniture labeled to what room they went in, in my new home and they put everything exactly where it was supposed to be. They were friendly and hard-workers, never stopping even in the 90 degree heat at 10am. My new house is a 20 minute drive from my old one, and they were able to get everything loaded from point a and unloaded to point b in just two hours! The next time I move will be when I purchase my first home in a few years, but I will definitely be hiring them again when I do! Thank you again so much!!

Trevor, CJ, and Romeo were fantastic. From the moment we first discussed rates til the final item was off the truck and in my new apartment they were a pleasure to work with. I have been using movers for years, and never have I seen punctuality, quality, and speed at the same time until now. They arrived slightly ahead of schedule to start loading the truck and finished the job in ~75% of the time quoted. In the future I will look no further than these guys for all my moves.
