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.

Reviews for Huntersville movers

Preferred Moving completed a local move here in Charlotte. The entire crew was awesome to work with! Travis C, Travis O, Trey, Jamar and Mike were all gentlemen! They took very good care of my items and completed the move in record time. The entire crew was also very cognizant of all obstacles and went beyond and beyond to ensure the move went perfect. If you are looking for a moving company I recommend Preferred Moving. I plan to use them again for labor on a few smaller moves!

The moving team was tremendous. They arrived on time, were courteous and fast, and even moved things that we didn't think they would have room to move. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

We had some heavy pieces of furniture moved from a storage unit to 2 separate locations, and the 3 movers were so pleasant and did a great job! I would definitely call Marla again and recommend Get It Home Movers to all my friends and family.

Hired them to move from my 2nd floor apartment into a townhouse. Was only expecting 2-3 movers and 1 truck but they showed up with 5 movers and 2 trucks. The entire move lasted less than 4.5 hours (some of the time was spent transporting and they had to fill up for gas, but since I was flat rate this didn't bother me). Only thing to beware is that they limit the "number of boxes" they will move. I wasn't aware of this until after I had hired them (but was warned before they actually showed up for the move). The reason this isn't a good policy is I could have easily packed small boxes into a couple large (and very heavy boxes) and gotten my total to under 20. They really should take box size into account.

George and Jacoby were my movers. They were very professional, pleasant, and treated my belongings with care. It was a local move, and took less than 3 hours from start to finish. I had some follow up questions after the move and multiple people were very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this company!

Moving leather couches, beds, dressers, etc. just a few houses down the street. Bellhops were punctual, quick, and took really good care of my belongings as we moved. Very reasonable prices, great support from Bellhops office in changing scope and date/time of move - super easy. Would definitely use again.

While what I hired for was not an actual move it was to move items up and down stairs that I'm unable to do the response and professionalism of the gentleman that arrived was fantastic. I will certainly look to use this company again should the services be needed.

Marla was extremely professional and understanding to my circumstances. I called Get It Home Moving the week of my move and they were able to schedule it promptly. Marla's warmth and professionalism helped ease a lot of my anxieties and the movers were had my things ready and loaded in less than an hour. I was so impressed with this company and the price is very competitive. Five stars!! -huntersville, nc resident

STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY! It's painful even to write these words as I watch the moving truck drive away totally empty. Yes, to my complete shock, the movers just drove off and left my wife and I to fend for ourselves on our moving day. (We're in our 60's.) This same company moved us three years ago, but somehow, the company owner (Marla) got her details wrong this time (despite explicit communication from me by phone and text). She sent the wrong truck, then told the movers to leave us high and dry (also claiming that she quoted us the wrong hourly rate). This is beyond outrageous. Marla hung up on the phone with me (when I pleaded with her not to send the movers off and said I would post an honest review if she did). She did not respond to my texts (even when I told her my wife was sitting here in tears) and acted in the most unprofessional way imaginable. This is beyond belief and, to me, totally unheard of. We scheduled this almost 2 months ago, we planned everything around this moving day (we're in a rental and have to be out on a specific day), and now we are left to try to find another mover on one day's notice. Shocking. Terrible. Bear in mind that I asked Marla if she wanted to come by the house to review everything first, and she said there would be no need. So, this is all on her -- again, she moved us in! -- and yet she has created a moving disaster for us. If this happened to us, this could happen to you. Be forewarned!
