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. 

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.

Bradley and Nathan were awesome! Punctual, professional, super hard working (the heat index is in the upper 90s today so moving was some seriously sweaty work). They took good care of my furniture and were thoughtful in loading and unloading the truck. Making the reservation and payment was easy, too. I absolutely recommend Southern Moving & Storage and will use them again next time I move.

Corey and Grayson were very accommodating in meeting my moving needs in a weeks notice. The rates were the best in comparison to all of the other big name movers in town who charged double what they did. Very personable, polite, and professional. Definitely recommend!

We recently moved to Wilmington from Atlanta and had the contents of a five bedroom house temporarily in storage here in Wilmington. We engaged Ben and his team, through Thumbtack, to move everything from storage to either our new home or to another storage unit. Ben prepared a quote and then delivered on all his promises. The furniture included a player piano, which was extremely heavy and the team moved it without any incidents. The entire move was successfully completed on time, at the agreed price and with a very professional approach. The results were outstanding, everything arrived and was placed where we wanted it and there were zero breakages and no damage to the house, furniture or any of our belongings. Ben and the team were polite and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Ben and his team.

Ben recently moved my daughter's furnishings from one apartment to another. He and his partner were prompt, professional, and very affordable. Ben even reduced his original quote after the job since he finished the move sooner than expected. I will certainly call Ben again when needed.

Mr. Bellamy provided excellent service for a recent move of furniture and boxes from current residence to a storage locker. Their initial response to my inquiry was within minutes. He was attentive on setting up schedule and arrived promptly. Their equipment is excellent and their attention to details on packing and loading exceeded expectations. If you are in need of very professional and courteous movers, you will want to contact Bellamy Small Services. Their pricing was very competitive.

The Bellamy team were professional, work quickly and efficiently. They moved large furniture pieces and 3 whole bedrooms sets, couches, patio furniture without a problem. They took apart beds and set them back up at our new home. They took away mattresses and tables we no longer needed. I can not say enough good things about this team!! My family and I are so grateful to have found these guys, they made our overwhelming move seem seamless! Thank you Team Bellamy!!!

Absolutely the best service and rates in town! I moved from a two bedroom apartment to a three bedroom apartment and Jonathan and his team took care of transporting not only all of the boxes but also my furniture, electronics & washer and dryer too. They were extremely kind, incredibly fair with price, and worked diligently, quickly and very carefully. Mr. Bellamy went out of his way to even return my apartment key to my place of work so that I wouldn't be inconvenienced in trying to retrieve it. Any questions I had after the move regarding where certain items might've been left or answer promptly and correctly. Imagine moving an entire apartment and being able to recall on the spot where a particular power strip was placed! I can't Ava enough about Mr. Bellamy and his services. I will highly recommend his company to friends and family for years to come!
