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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

First of all, they can honor their committment. I used Trell for the first time in May of 2017. At that time they were very good. I had a situation where I needed to have a truck loaded and then unloaded so I again used Trell's Moving. We had set up this commitment over 2 weeks in advance and they were supposed to be at my house to start loading a truck at 9 am. When they were not at my home by 9:30 I called and asked where they were. I was told that because of previous bad weather they were running behind and that they would not be able to be at my home until much later in the afternoon that day or maybe even have to put it off until the next morning. This was TOTALLY NOT ACCEPTIBLE since I had already made arrangements to move into a new apartment on May 31st and also had a carpet professional coming later in the day on May 31st to clean the carpets as per the property managements requirements when moving out of an apartment. He would not be able to do that if I still had boxes and furniture scattered around the apartment. Trell's finally showed up at 10:30 with a crew and the move went through with only one other incident. Two of the movers took a chunk of wood out of a door jam while moving a love seat into a room. No big deal, I got that fixed. I was so pleased with the gentlemen that came out to help that after the move was done, they all received a tip from me. When we were done I spoke with the lead person on the crew and explained that I was going to Texas to help move a friend and I would be needing help unloading that truck on June 29th. At that time the Lead person took all of my information including my phone number and email and informed me that they had nothing booked for the 29th and even if they did, they would prioritize my request first. I said "great"! Now, I would expect this lead person to pass on that information to the "powers that be". I began calling Trell's Moving on June 24th to confirm that I would have a crew to help unload the truck. Nobody returned my call. I left e-mails through Thumbtack and still nothing. Finally today on June 26th, I received word from the "head honcho" at Trells that they were fully booked for the entire week and would not be able to help me. This totally surprised me and disappointed me I was under the impression that we had already arranged for this to happen on June 29th with me getting priority on that day. This guy tells me that his men do NOT make the decisions as to who they do jobs for and also that he knew nothing about my request for help on June 29th. But, then the truth of the matter came out. Although I still gave Trells a average score on my second review from when they showed up late on May 31st an damaged my door jam, NOW THIS GUY WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE HEAD MAN AT TRELL'S tells me that how could I possibly expect him to service me after I gave him a bad review? Then he begins to belittle me and calls me "CRAZY". This man is NOT professional and I will only speak of his company in a negative way to anyone that will listen to me. There is no way that I should have to put up with this unprofessional manner. He isn't doing me a favor by doing the job. I AM PAYING HIM! In facte, it is me who was doing him a favor by trying to hire him for a 3rd time.
