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.

The movers had a positive attitude the whole time even with all of my items not packed up. They were professional and came ready to move. They were able to lift the heavy furniture and items without scractching them. They gave me a really great discount and moved all of my items quickly. I would recommend their service.

This was the best moving experience I've had. The team was polite and very professional. This family owned business will go very far and be blessed doing so. They took such great care of our items while never resting on the job. This move was done during hurricane Dorian and the wind and rain didn't slow them down, I was amazed that they continued. I would recommend this moving company to handle any and all moving needs you may have. I really appreciate the you guys. Thanks a million times again. The Rice Family

I had a sofa bed to move upstairs in an extra room in which the dimensions were rather tight to move. Mr Simmons kept working until the job was complete and I was satisfied. I would recommend and hire again.

I can't thank Trell enough for his great moving service today. I had scheduled a mover and they never showed up. I messaged Trell at 7pm the night before a holiday and he got back to me right away! He even offered to come over immediately! The next morning he arrived and did a wonderful and fast job. He was friendly and my moving angel that saved the day when I was truly in a very difficult situation.

First, Joy was easy to work with and responded to emails quickly. I was moving to a different home in same zip code so I anticipated a quick move. I'd already packed items small enough to fit into boxes, and I moved the more fragile items and artwork the day before. The trucks arrived a bit late (trouble with one of them); but the supervisor was friendly, knowledgeable, and saw to the loading of the trucks himself. Extra men came because the weather folks forecast a hot day. Loading went pretty well. However, unloading could have gone better. Several boxes were taken to the wrong rooms, though they were labeled. One of the men had to be told 3 different times by 3 different people to take specific boxes from the garage to their proper locations before he complied. Even then I discovered later that not all the boxes were moved. The men could not locate the legs to the master bed, so it could not be set up before they left. I found the legs days later in a box that had nothing to do with the master bedroom. I also found scratches on some of my furniture that wasn't immediately apparent during the unloading due to the lateness of the day and the lack of good lighting in the new house. Yes, it was a hot day and it no doubt negatively affected the men's professionalism. Still... 3 stars.

We had a whole house move. Trell, Lee and their helper were tremendous. They loaded a 26 foot truck full inabout 2 hours. They wrapoed the furniture I asked them to wrap, they were respectful of my things as well as the houses. They were friendly and polite. I cut my hand during the oce and they kept asking if I was okay. They held the furniture so I could put the felt pads on it. I cannot say enough good things about them. I'm so thankful I saw the advertisement for Trell's movers on Thumbtack. I couldn't have asked for a better crew! Thank you so much! PS-all the other reviews are dead on....these guys are that good!

Elaster and Byron gave me what I would call the perfect client experience! They were on time, cordial and very professional the whole move through. After I gave them a walk thru they took it from there. Very professional and many years of experience. You cannot go wrong with Elaster! I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

The best money we've ever spent. They were professional, polite, and very efficient. There wasn't any stalling to extend the time, as you pay by the hour. All the furniture was wrapped in blankets and plastic. My wife and I appreciated all the effort put forth to make our move a pleasant experience. We will definitely use them again, should the need arise!

I REALLY was impressed with the movers. They were on time, did not waste time and were really about their business. Great personalities. What I did not like was that although I read that they only accepted cash, they did not have a receipt for me onsite. They said the owner would email it to me. I requested the receipt more than once, but did get one. Hoping this is a new business that needs to smooth out the rough edges. Good luck.

I gave them two stars only because a snafu at their previous job on the same day prevented them from getting to the job they scheduled with me. They would have been hours late and we could not accommodate that time delay. In all fairness- I called them pretty late with respect to when I needed the job done. I would try them again, with ample scheduling time. We still had to move the stuff ourselves, which we were prepared to do anyway, but it was still tough.
