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.

Trell's Movers were great! Trell offered prompt responses with any/all communication, and both he and Lee came to our home 1 day prior to ensure the correct pickup location. Trell informed us that Lee and Tremayne would be helping us move, and they were early/on time for the move. Lee and Tremayne moved all of our items without incident, and we would definitely hire and/or recommend Trell's Movers in the future!

Trell and his team arrived and got straight to work. I moved from a townhouse into a third floor walk-up apartment, so it was no easy job. From start to finish it only took them about 3 hours to move everything - all of my boxes and my furniture. They handled everything very carefully, and made sure it was moved exactly where I wanted it. I could not have been more pleased with the work that they did for me! I would hire again for every move!

This was my second move with Trell's Movers. Once again, they did excellent work. They made moving me out of my apartment look easy, even while tackling three flights of stairs with furniture, a ton of boxes, and my huge washer and dryer. They take great care of everything and work faster than I could have imagined. Would definitely hire again!

Tyrell was prompt in responses prior to the moving date, giving information related to the move. Made me feel confident and less stressed about the move. He and crew arrived that morning on time and quickly went to work. He was sensitive to my concerns and did a terrific job, from beginning to end. I would recommend him to anyone and the Thumbtack service that put me in touch with Tyrell! Thanks so much!

I hired Trell for two jobs and was not disappointed in that decision. He and Albert worked hard consistently throughout the day. And it was 94 on the day that we moved. Next week is house #2. And I have already recommended him to someone who is moving in June.

Mover did NOT post on the 2-Hour minimum at $75.00 per hour on his Thumbtack profile. This is not transparency and also is misleading.

We could not have hired better people for our moving needs! Their work was superior in every way! They brought necessary tools. They were friendly, polite, respectful of us and our home and our belongings. They treated everything with care. Their fee was most reasonable and if we were to move again we would book L&O Logistics LLC and we would happily recommend their service to anyone! Thank you so much!!!!

I messaged Trell after another mover failed to come through for me, he responded within the hour and sent me a quote shortly there after. This was on a Tuesday, on Thursday morning August 31 his partner and himself were at my for at the agreed upon time with smiles on. It took them less than 2 hours to completely clean my condo out and be on the road again to my destination. Trell kept in touch with me through the drive and when he arrived at my new address was quick and careful unloading all of my belongings. I will recommend him to anyone needing a mover, I pray I never need this type of move again but I won't hesitate to call if I do. Thank you so much for everything Trell.

Overall, my experience was great. I needed a mover to help me get my washer and dryer into my new house somewhat last minute and I wasn't disappointed. Id definitely hire them again.

The team lead by Mr. L. Bailey were professional, courteous, and quick in their efforts to move my stuff. I would have to say that if I had remained in the area, I would look to them as friends. As it is I would recommend TVC to anyone that asks.

The gentlemen from Trell's movers took really good care of everything for us. They came on time and stayed until almost midnight to finish the job for us. Then came back the following week to help us unload our very stuffed POD. Great to work with.
