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.

Very friendly and professional! When I moved to my house, the first set of movers I hired refused to move my elliptical up the stairs out of fear of "tearing up the walls". Faith and Glory Movers came in on-time! (actually even earlier than expected) and moved the elliptical from the garage to the desired upstairs room in less than 5 minutes! My only regret is that I didn't use them for my entire move from the beginning, haha. I would highly recommend them for any moving job you have! They're awesome! Absolutely no complaints whatsoever!

The team performing our move was fantastic. They were constantly in contact with us before the move and let us know they were going to be a little late on the morning of our move (which was the day after Christmas). They were very careful with our furniture and moving it into a new home. They worked non-stop for 9 hours and did not even take a lunch. I hope that I do not have to move again for a long time but will make sure to use Winston-Salem Moving and Storage if I do.

Joyhall movers made my move from Greensboro to Raleigh a seamless success. They were friendly and so helpful. As a single gal moving on her own I could not have asked for a better experience. USE THEM!

Faith and Glory movers were a big help in my move. I hired them to unload my UHaul once I arrived in Greensboro. John worked with me on time (since I was traveling from another city) and all 4 movers were very professional and moved quickly even in 90 degree weather.

I would highly recommend Quality Movers. I had a tough move with lots of stairs. The team moved me on a 95 degree high humidity day and got the work done quickly and professionally. From start to finish, this was about as stress-free as moving can be. Highly recommend you reach out to them!

The 4 men that moved us to our new home did an Awesone job! Even though the amount of items to move was more than they expected, (someone did not read my description of the move) they worked to get items moved quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend them to anyone and use them again.

This was our first experience with hiring American Moving and Hauling Inc. We have used other moving companies in the past around the triad and our experience with American Moving was by far the best! Their two movers were very professional, respectful and efficient. They treated all of our belongings with great respect and care in both loading and unloading the truck. In my 3 past moving experiences this company was the first to get through a move without damaging any of our furniture as well as their techniques on protecting and maneuvering our things down and up stairs was executed perfectly. I would highly recommend this company to anyone that is looking for help with their moving processes in and around the triad.

Chad, Wanted to let you know that the movers were great. On time, very polite, respectful, and was very cautious and took very good care with the moving of my belongings. The movers even give me compliments as to how organized and ready everything was for the move. Before leaving they made sure everything was were I wanted it and even double checked before their departure. The cost was very reasonable and I have recommended you to another person that will be moving by end of month to first week of June that lived in the same complex I moved from. As well as I will recommend your company to anyone else that I hear needs a mover. Thanks again Chad, Very satisfied customer, Janis

I scheduled a move weeks in advance with Me & Gee Moving but the day of move in we didn’t have a truck. I let Me & Gee’s know what was going on and they were very u understanding and willing to come at a later date/time. We ended up calling them at the very last minute to help us move and they were not only understanding and accommodating of our last minute request but was also quick and efficient with helping us with our move.
