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.

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.

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. 

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.

I needed help with a long distance move from Winston to Greensboro. The movers arrived on time and helped with every thing I asked. I moved into an apartment on the third floor and the guys were still quick and got me moved in three hours. The movers got straight to business and if I needed anything they were there to help. If I ever move again I will be hiring them. I definitely recommend them to anyone moving. I can not express how excellent they were. Amy was very helpful and super sweet. I can't thank them enough for their hard work today!! :)

Manco Carriers arrived 10 minutes early and had a great attitude. Moving is stressful, but the employees helped calm me down and made moving a breeze. They were able to fit all my belongings into a U-Haul and did so with enthusiasm. They completed my move in about 2 hours. Moving is so stressful, make your life easier by booking Manco Carriers for your next move. Highly recommend!

This was my first time using a moving company and they were great! They kept me informed on their arrival and were very quick with moving me from one place to the next. It was an extremely hot day out so I was presently surprised that they were able to work as quickly as they did! For as quick as they worked everything was moved without any dents or scratches. The movers were incredibly friendly, which is always appreciated. I will definitely use them again for my future moves!

Faith and Glory Movers responded to my project plea for help after 8 p.m. and was able to move my items at 10 a.m. the next morning after my original mover was unable to fit all of my items on their truck. The owner and his two employees were efficient and careful with all items. I would absolutely hire them to move me again!

Faith and Glory movers went out of their way at the last minute to help me with my move. John and his crew were on time and extremely responsive to all my inquiries. I was able to move all of my belongings in half the time I originally anticipated with their help. I highly recommend Faith and Glory movers to someone who wants exceptional service at a great value.

Tri-City moved moved us for a local move. We hired them for loading and unloading services, including two very large, heavy items. The three men that showed up were wonderful. They arrived on time, were professional, and finished the job quickly and without delay. The time estimate they gave was spot on. We would recommend Tri-City to anyone needing movers.

Did a good job moving items. As it was a per hour job, I thought they could have worked a little faster, but the movers were friendly and competent.
