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.

Reviews for Bellevue movers

There is one incident that caused the 2 star rating as we felt it was a serious incident. First, in regards to the movers and scheduling staff, their service was great. The movers were very respectful of our items and took great care to avoid hitting walls or damaging items. Scheduling was easy and most of the move went well. It is the only reason we didnt rate the company a 1 star. On moving day, there was an issue with one mover not being able to come in due to unforseen circumstances. They found a replacement worker for the unloading process. They apologized for the late start and confusion as the individual that couldn't arrive was the lead mover. We recieved a credit for the mix up which was fine. Everyone worked efficiently despite being down an individual. Now the reason for our rating is because of their insurance policy and how they resolved the damage they caused to a utility cabinet. Keep in mind, they never provided any paper work nor required us to sign any waivers or disclaimers on the day we moved. They gave no warning on whether or not something they moved could potentially not be covered by their policy. While unloading, a mover came up to us and showed us the damaged pieces, took photos, and told us to contact bellhops to resolve the damaged piece after the move. They aplogoized and we werent too upset considering it was the only thing damaged and they were extremely careful moving everything else. When I got the email to confirm the moves final price and to dispute any thing, I inquired about reimbursement for the damaged item. I was then called and conveniently told the material of the cabinet was not covered by their policy and that we should have known that. I was never told it wouldnt be covered. During talks prior to the move, they explained items they couldnt move or move without a waiver and so we arranged other means to move those items. We would have moved the cabinet ourselves had we known it wouldnt be covered for damages. In the past, other companies have always warned us prior to moving something not covered and had us at least sign a waiver. The individual over the phone told me I should have clicked a link in one of the previous emails to fully review the terms and conditions. I had read a different disclaimer when we were qouted and it only mentioned that they wouldnt be liable for damages in boxes they didn't pack themselves. I even called and asked for full clarification on their insurance policy and the material of furniture was never mentioned. It wasn't anything illegal on their part, just shady and unfortunate. They had great staff nonetheless and this review is based on a serious issue regarding the company's policies and practice, not on the workers. Unless they change their policy and provide disclaimers or request waivers from customers at the time of the move, I cannot recommend using them and I would advise you to review their terms and conditions very thoroughly to ensure you understand what will and wont be covered because they wont remind you at the time of your move.

I booked their services 2 days prior to move day and the owner, Tyler was very pleasant and was accommodating. On move day, he and his helper were punctual but as time went by, they started taking their sweet time. I wasn’t moving much. It is from a 2 bedroom apartment. During unloading, Tyler texted to tell me that he has a 4 hour mini

I have moved a number of times in the past, and my experience with movers had been disappointing, from unprofessional service to not even bothering to show up on a booked move date. I hired Fred's Transportation and they raised the bar, immediately setting their company apart from the others. From my initial contact they were polite, courteous and professional. They arrived at the pick up point early and, took care of every detail of my move perfectly. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to know that this kind of professionalism still exists. Bobby and Josh worked tirelessly to make sure the move was stress free. These two gentlemen are a quality hire for sure! I would recommend Fred's Transportation to anyone! They have a customer for life. Thank you Fred's Transportation, and thank you Bobby and Josh for all your hard work! Toni F.

I would highly recommend Kennedy and Sons for your moving needs. I had an extremely heavy and awkward piece of equipment that needed to be moved from the driveway to the lower level of my home. Dustin and his son were able to accommodate the transition very well. They were prompt to respond to my request, they showed up on time, and handled everything very professionally. Great work!

These guys were amazing. They checked in ahead of our scheduled time to let me know they were on their way and arrived punctually. They were ready to go and moved everything quickly and with care. It was a real pleasure to work with them; I recommend them without reservation. A++!

I wouldn't hire them again because of some punctuality concerns, the overall quality of work of the "team lead", and the discrepancy between what a mover vs said " team lead" make even though both are doing physically demanding work. There was a scuff on my dresser, but it is a small concern in comparison the things i mentioned previously.
