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 Lexington movers

I have to say that being a military wife, I was a little nervous about scheduling our move. We normally have the government move us, but have found we tend to spend more in repairing or replacing pieces that get broke. After many days of research we decided to go with American Moving and Hauling. The office staff there worked closely with me to ensure that everything was taken care of and that we felt comfortable and happy. They also offered to clean my home after the move (for a small fee), we agreed to that also, since that would be one less thing to worry about. Our move was flawless and the move out cleaning was amazing. We ended up hiring them to clean my new house once a month. Thank you American moving for a great move, awesome friendly guys, and a clean home!

Joah and Delacious were the most perfect hard working gentlemen amidst a long range move. They never complained. They just worked. I wish I had more cash on hand to tip them more. We chatted, laughed, all while they worked very strategically and timely. I laughed so much I forgot I was amid a stressful move. I have used movers before and can tell you I’ve never had this professional and efficient of an experience. They moved multiple beds, couches, chairs, desks/tables, storage bins, and multiple boxes of fragile things with care. Thank you Joah and Delacious for all your hardwork and professionalism. I know when I move who to hire.

EVERY THING WAS PERFECT. My husband and I have been moved through his company several times and the company always hired the big names like Mayflower, Atlas etc. This time I needed to move my mom from the home she had lived in for 25 years in NC to a two bedroom two bath apartment in Assisted Living facility in Florida. I put the details on Thumbtack because I have had good luck with them in the past. I received about six responses but only Pack It Up Moving and one other business gave a price quote. I called the number and it was answered by the owner Tori. I explained to him that because the Assisted Living Facility was a high rise building they would not allow furniture to be moved in until after 6:30 pm or before 6:00am. so that the elevators won't be tied up during their busy hours. My unusual request was that he pick up the furniture on Wednesday afternoon but deliver it Friday evening at 6:30 pm. This way we could make the drive Thursday and have Friday afternoon to get my mom checked into the facility and do the walk through for her apartment before the furniture arrived. I was actually shocked that he agreed to my request. He also informed be that there was no need for me to give him a deposit or sign a contract, just write his guys a check after everything had been delivered, and the price was guaranteed. Well it actually sounded to good to be true but I scheduled the move for three weeks later and crossed my fingers. Tori said that I could call or text him anytime with any questions or concerns I might have. My plan was to drive up the week before and pack up all of moms clothes and personal things before the moving truck arrived. I'll be honest with you, when the moving time started getting close I began to get nervous about the fact that I hadn't put down a deposit or signed anything. The price quote was lower than I expected and I was afraid that they might get a more lucrative opportunity and bail on me. Tori must have sensed my anxiety because when I called to ask him a question he reassured me that my moms move was in good hands and they would not let me down. On moving day the truck with two men showed up exactly on time, even though they had come from a town eight hours away. They worked quickly but carefully, making sure everything was wrapped in protective plastic wrap and blankets. The truck was loaded in about an hour and I even threw in some extra things that I had not planned to move and they were fine with that. On Friday the driver called me and told me that they would be there at 6:30pm and they were. Again, they worked so well that everything was in her apartment (on the 14th floor) and unwrapped and in its place by 8pm. They even got the two beds set up and ready to sleep on. The delivery guys were so professional and helpful. I wrote them a check for the original quote and just could not be more pleased. I would use this company again in a heartbeat and give them my highest recommendation. They were much better than any big name moving company we have ever used where you're lucky if you know what day you will get your stuff, much less the exact hour. Thank you Tori for making a difficult situation as stress free as possible. I'm so glad I chose Pack It Up Moving.

Our first set of 3 guys were amazing who loaded our truck, not necessarily all were "skilled movers" persay, as one was a leader and adept at loading special items like antiques and mirrors, but others just college guys who can lift heavy things. All wore masks, super polite, and professional. They were one time. We had another set of guys scheduled to meet us to unload the next day at our destination, but they were 2 hours late. My husband with the bad back wound up moving most of the 26' truck😕 during those two delayed hours. When they arrived late, but polite and professional, they only worked about an hour, and we had paid the two hour minimum already. I think it was a scheduling issue? This company works it seems like an Uber for moving. Men can get a call and show up quickly to help you move. They have been vetted already and they wrap your things up nicely. It's a good value. The guys work hard and consistently. No one ever dilly dallied on their phones. I would have given more stars if the scheduling worked out to unload.

OMG! These guys are the absolute best! They came in a timely manner, they were very gentle with my items and even went the extra mile to make sure everything was placed where I wanted before they left. I couldn't have asked for a better moving crew then them! Thank you again for being patient with me and very accommodating with my scheduling issues. I truly do appreciate not only your great services but the laughs and your kindness. Best wishes and good fortune in the New Year!
