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.

Was a good experience related to a short move and less stuff to move. Listened well to suggestions on how and which furniture should be moved. Handled fragile stuff carefully. Although they dented a small knick on the wall, they fixed it up (not perfect but it was ok).

Overall experience was great. The movers were very careful & courteous. Underestimated the amount of stuff to move though, so it wouldn't all fit in one truckload. Had to make two trips (local move) which added more time, so it ended up costing more than I was expecting.

Guys showed up early and were very professional every step of the way. They did an excellent job handling our possessions and moving them with the care I would have. While less important for an actual moving job, Both of them were very personable and we thoroughly enjoyed moving with them

Can't say enough about how helpful and friendly our movers were! We had a local move and hired Manco to move us out of our current residence and into our new one. They arrived early both days and were so friendly, efficient, and helpful! We would definitely recommend this company.

They had to move 8 rooms of furnishings up a hill to my new residence, item by items because the driveway was to narrow and steep for the truck. AND, they did it with a SMILE. Total Professionalism. I would highly recommend the use of House to Home Movers to ALL!!

They arrived early and loaded the piano quickly. They were very professional, polite, and had the tools needed to move the piano. Again, they were very professional delivering the piano to my daughter's house. I recommend Larry Willis to do an excellent job moving any piano.

Mr. Jackson obviously believes in customer service; he was professional, accomodating, and was prompt to answer any of my questions, taking all the guesswork and stress out of the move. He and his guy did an excellent job and I would recommend his services to anyone. I will definitely be using Triple 777 for any moves.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised with American hauling and moving company. They were professional and courteous, they were very friendly, and easy going as well. They moved our entire house with care and ease. So glad I decided 2 hire them and have a relatively stress-free move. I will gladly recommend to family and friends in the future. Montini and his team were wonderful! :-) The only negative thing that I would have to comment on is the price was a little bit more than I had anticipated. Otherwise, I am very happy with how things turned out.
