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.

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 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.

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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

Do NOT do business with this company. Scheduled a move and paid in advance, did not show up on moving day, no communication! Scam!

Professional and personable service. Very accommodating with my move from one apt to another within the same building. My only comment is that they forgot to move my microwave. Since it wasn’t a long distant move it wasn’t a significant problem.

Jacobi, Zach. And Ramsey were professional and reliable. They did a great job taking care of my personal possessions and getting them moved to my new home in Florida. Black Belt movers spent time to ensure I got the service I needed and provided an accurate estimate for my move. Definitely recommend them for household goods moving!

Due to no fault of the movers, the start time for my appointment was delayed because of a prior customer's appointment. Once the movers arrived, everything went splendid. And to my surprise, instead of expecting two movers, I got three for the price of two. On top of that I received a 10% discount for my inconvenience. All of my merchandise was secured and transported without anything being moved without being cracked or broken. The guys were friendly, knowledgeable and new exactly how to move furniture. Although this was not an easy job, these mover's performance was excellent. Would I use Black Belt again? Most differently! Thanks Black Belt.

Elite Movers did a great job helping us move house. They hustled super hard, were very communicate throughout the process, and even dropped off a gift bag for us a few days after the move. They were great and we'd definitely use them again!

My husband and I hired movers to move our stuff. We didn’t anticipate having to help out so much. One piece of furniture we had was particularly heavy, and I understand my husband helping out with that piece, but we ended up moving the bulk of the things downstairs at our new home ourselves and were charged extra for stairs. I also understand the charge for stairs, but when I asked if we were charged for stairs for the full move (the apartment we moved out of was on the first floor), the owner’s response was “Didn’t I already go over that with you?” A simple yes or no would have sufficed. He did verbally break down the fees after the move, but I was so exhausted that I didn’t think to ask the question about the charge for stairs until a couple days later. Movers were friendly and did the job, but one guy was particularly slow, and again—my husband and I ended up moving the bulk of our things down the stairs ourselves. If you use this company, ask for a detailed breakdown, in writing, before the move, as most moving companies I’ve worked with have done.

These guys responded to my request for moving assistance almost immediately and on very short notice. Communication was very good. They are not specialized movers, but were more than capable of handling my 20' Uhaul and moving my belongings in an elevator up to my 3rd floor apartment. Thanks guys!

They did a wonderful job moving however, I was told prior to the move that I would be charged an hourly rate and a landfill fee. When I was billed after the move they added a $25.00 per item charge on top of the hourly rate and landfill fee. I never would have hired these guys if I knew that was a case. Make sure you ask about undisclosed fees before hiring.

The movers were respectful and friendly. Movers were late by about 40 minutes but called ahead to let me know about the delay. They handled my items carefully, so far I've not found anything broken. It rained the entire day of the move, which is not their fault. They laid down a moving pad when they loaded to keep the mess to a minimum but didn't even try to minimize the mess at the delivery location, making a huge mess with mud everywhere. The roof of the truck had a leak as well thus everything got soaked. They only sporadically read the labels on the boxes so that many items didn't get placed where they were supposed to go.

They did a fantastic job with moving all of my heavy furniture with little to no damage. Further, they went above and beyond to move my 75” TV safely, which I was most worried about. Very quick and professional, would recommend to anyone interested in working with a professional company.

My son had some heavy furniture in his basement, and had suffered some water damage to that area. He and a friend tried and failed to move the furniture so the water damage could be fixed. Black belt movers got the job done in about 40 minutes.

Terrell was so quick to respond to our inquiry. I called around and every other mover quoted me much higher estimates. He and his team were super careful moving really heavy pieces through our freshly-painted rooms and there was not a scratch or a bump anywhere. They were so flexible and helpful when we asked if they could move a few extra pieces. I would completely recommend and will use them again myself when the need arises.
