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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Trell's movers got us moved very quickly. They were very courteous and efficient and hard working. They made the stressful task of moving bearable and fun! I will be using them again in a couple of weeks to move some things out of storage and definitely for any future moves after that; and I would recommend any one I know who needs movers to them. Very pleased and happy with their services. They were such a blessing to us.

Received excellent service during a move for my sister. Would definitely recommend Leon and T.V.C. for anyone looking for great movers. They are extremely courteous and professional. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE REVIEW!! Received excellent service during a move for my sister. Would definitely recommend Leon and T.V.C. for anyone looking for great movers. The first part of this review was from a move that they did for us on Feb 6th but after my most recent encounter I decided to update this review. Although they were late the first time - which seems to be a theme throughout these reviews - they did an excellent job of moving our furniture. Having said that we decided to use them a second time. This is where the disaster began. We scheduled the move and agreed on a price. After being about an hour late - and telling us that the storage place where they were renting the truck was not open - which we knew was not true because we had been there at 9am (the time that they open) to rent the storage unit and they were open - I was contacted by Leon and advised that the price that I had been quoted by him for the rental of the truck had doubled. When I questioned him about the increase in cost he grew agitated and began to yell. Since I am not used to being yelled at by businesses that I patronize, I began to raise my voice as well while trying to explain that he needed to have better communication about the costs. As the conversation escalated - Leon told me that his company was not going to do the move and they were going to return the truck and then - HUNG UP ON ME!!!! I still have a hard time processing that type of unprofessionalism from a business owner. I attempted to call him back multiple times and he never answered the phone. I needed to have my move occur on this day so I continued to attempt to reach him. Once I got him on the phone the situation did not get much better. He did tell me that I had wasted his time and since I had wasted his time they did not have the time to do the move that morning - but he could do it later in the evening and would call me when they were on their way. I never heard from him again - even after several calls and text messages - and this caused a hardship on my part. In fact this was three days ago now and I still have not heard from him - No apologies or anything. This has to have been the most unprofessional, unethical dealing with a moving company that I have ever experienced. Yes - the prices are reasonable but I guess as the old saying goes - you get what you pay for. My suggestion - Hire another moving company. You will be happy you did!!!

They arrived with additional people to help me pack boxes because I wasn't finished packing. They worked non-stop packing boxes and loading the moving truck. Good experience!

From the moment the guys got to my house, they were ready to work. They helped me when needed, were patient when I made some last-minute changes and were super nice every step of the way. They knew how to properly pack my items and that's a plus for me, they had respect for my stuff and ensured everything was placed in my storage unit nicely. I will be using them for all my moving needs from here on, their personalities and work stood out.

Have to say they saved me! I had to be out of my house by this weekend, the company I originally hired completely ghosted me and i was moving 3 people out this house by myself. They really helped me out by coming so last minute!! They did a great job handling my stuff. The guys were very courteous about how I wanted things and even left extra space in my storage unit for whatever else I needed. Overall my experience with them was fantastic! 10/10 would recommend and will be rehiring them when it’s time to get my stuff out of storage!
