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.

The movers were friendly with a good attitude. They broke down large pieces of furniture and moved everything carefully.

I hired Pack It Up Moving after speaking with several other moving companies. I went with Pack It Up because of Tori's integrity, honesty, and pricing. His team of men that moved our 2,600 square foot home were polite, careful yet efficient, and had an upbeat positive attitude. They seemed to truly enjoy moving our stuff and let's face it moving stinks, that's why we hire others to do it. The team didn't even complain about moving a heavy treadmill up the stairs. They got the job done in such a timely manner it ended up saving us money. I would highly recommend this moving company and will recommend it to others who need to move.

“ I was impressed with the timely communication I received from Amy. Whenever I had a question, Amy responded swiftly. The entire move, from start to finish, went incredibly smooth. The three gentleman that took care of us on moving day were top notch and were a pleasure to work with. It is comforting to know, American Moving and Hauling will be taking care of us again this summer, as we move into our permanent address. ”

The ACTUAL movers did a great job moving my furniture, which is incredibly big and heavy... and they were very hard working, respectful of our belongings and super careful... however, there was a lot of miscommunication with us and the whoever it was when it came down to setting up times, rates and prices, and they had written down the wrong address for the movers... which made us have to wait at least 50 minutes more for the movers to come because they got the wrong address from whomever it was that gave them the wrong address!!!

American Moving helped with a partial house move for my mom. They were a little late showing up due to an address mixup (but they did call so I knew they would be late) but once they arrived all was well. The job was done very efficiently and everything was moved without incident. Low stress move and even got it done faster than I thought they would. Both men would extremely courteous and pleasant to work with. Would definitely use them again.

The crew was excellent! They arrived on time and were extremely professional. The guys were easy to talk to and very friendly. They did a fantastic job moving the heavy items we had. They asked where each item needed to be placed and were cautious in moving the bulky items so as not to damage our new house! This is a top notch company and if my family ever needs to move again we will definitely give them a call!

Used them for a move from Salisbury to Statesville. Had us moved in 5 hours loaded and unloaded. Would have been faster had the third man not sat in the truck the whole time, but we were sent a third man for no charge so can't really complain much. They wrapped the furniture with plastic and moving blankets before loading protecting the furniture for the most part. Normal hazards of moving noticed to a couple pieces of furniture but nothing major. Only major complaint would be it would have been nice to know that we were charged their mileage from Monroe to Salisbury on the initial quote, not that it was an issue, but it was defiantly a surprise at the end. Yes they were given all addresses needed for the quote, this just wasn't disclosed. Would recommend them, and would use them again. Overall very happy with the company and the move.

The three movers were very friendly, worked hard and aimed to please. They had a 2 bedroom apt. packed up and ready to go in less than 2 hours! My move was scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning and they didn't arrive until 10:30 a.m. That is the only reason for the 4 star rating. The pricing was very fair! I would use them again and would recommend them to others!

I am reviewing the moving service of JD Johnsons Deliveries, LLC. First of all, I'd like to say that I don't usually review online things, but because we were so impressed by the service we received from Danny and his crew, I wanted to write a review that would not only help his company, but other people like myself who could benefit from my experience. One disclaimer, I had never met Danny or his crew before, and my only motivation for doing this is stated above. Moving can be a very stressful situation, and this is the first time I have ever employed professional movers. My wife and I had sold our house in Salisbury and had to move our stuff into a climate controlled storage unit in Greensboro. (about 55 miles away) We had lived at our house a long time and had accumulated a great deal of furniture and possessions. We hired Danny and his crew in Dec. of 2016, and they did an excellent job. Because they were having a problem with their big truck, they went ahead and rented a large 26 ft. Penske truck, so that they could fulfill moving us on the day that was planned. Also, Danny had accomodated my desire to move on a day when he had some other things planned so that we could have good weather on the day of our move. His men, a crew of three, Eddie, Mike, and David arrived ready to work and displayed a good attitude all day even though they had to work hard all day and part of the evening with hardly a break. I was very impressed with their willingness to work hard and their can-do attitude. Another thing to mention: part of the moving service provided by Danny is picking up and hauling off any unwanted items and even trash from the site. This is actually part of the service and in our case they made two additional trips beyond the day they moved our stuff to the storage facility, in order to fulfill this part of the service. Although I did see some other good reviews from other movers on Thumbtack, No one else offered this service. Apparently Danny is able to sell or put items like this on consignment and this way can provide this service. Another thing was that there were no hidden gas or trip charges for milage, etc. Danny didn't even ask me to pay extra for the truck that he had to rent, which tells me he is a person of integrity. He absolutely kept his end of the bargain. He was always there when he said he would be there, and he also was very good about communicating with us about any issues that we needed to know about. I highly recommend Danny and his crew of Eddie, Mike, and David. The price was very reasonable for what they did, and they were great to work with. Tom Hollingsworth
