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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

Ivo , Arso and Milan were early, fast and polite. I move every one 1-2 years and this was, by far, the easiest moving experience I’ve ever had. Thank you guys! Thank you Piece of Cake Moving!

Super quick and efficient. They had wardrobe boxes, so I didn't have to worry about moving my clothes from my closet, and my clothes were nicely hung at my new place. The final quote was given after giving them the full list of things needed to be moved, which was a lot cheaper than any other moving companies. Thank you Cyrus, Lorenzo, & Anthony for helping us move!

I really enjoyed working with Ample Moving Company! They were so responsive and accommodating to our needs. The crew was extremely hard working and polite. They were very cautious about moving items and made sure everything was wrapped properly for moving. I highly recommend them and would use them again in the future.

I would definitely recommend Family Moving Inc. to anyone I know! They made the moving process I thought would be long and difficult, quick and easy. They were also super punctual. My window was 8am-9am and they called me at 7:50am to let me know they were ten minutes away. Will be using them for any future moves.

Very seamless moving experience of my 1 bedroom apartment, by a reliable crew at a very affordable price compared to others who tend to price gouge in this field of work. Will definitely be reccomending ASAP moving services to my friends and family.

Ghislain and Brice and their team were very responsive and prompt. They were able to help my mom with a last minute move. They came a couple hours after I called! They came with their own brand new moving truck. I wasn’t there, but my mom says the guys were super sweet, honest and hard working. Definitely a great value on the price too. We will definitely be using TETRIS MOVERS in the future.

We were looking for a team of pros to come in for a small job. We needed to move the furniture from our master bedroom to our kitchen while we get the floors redone. We contacted dozens of movers and nobody was willing to take on the job (30-45 minutes). All of the other movers wanted to charge for a two hour minimum (which I completely understand). However, Christian responded to the request promptly and for a very fair price. The guys showed up at the agreed upon time, worked quickly and did a great job. I’m looking forward to working with them again when the floors are done to move the furniture back.

Jeff and his crew were fantastic to work with. They were on time for the pickup and packed the baby grand piano with complete care. They also set up the piano with efficiency and care. They left everything clean and had the piano moved in 3hrs. All of the movers were polite and friendly. The price was reasonable.

This move was a complete mess as soon as the crew arrived. Even though the crew was very courteous, they packed things in our home that we told them numerous times NOT to pack. Like my wife's purse w/ car keys, wallet...everything! And then when asked where it was packed, they have no idea. We STILL cannot find the purse after 2 days of trying to unpack. They took no inventory as promised, on the boxes they were packing. Most boxes were not labeled and it's a nightmare to unpack. They tried to up-charged us hours into the move after I had a BINDING estimate. They realized halfway through the move it was larger than expected. That's NOT my fault but was made to blame. They assured this would be a stress free move and it's farthest from that statement.

Today, I had service furniture tranfer through Monroe moving pro. Yesterday, Sunday (weekend), I was searching online for a moving company, I sumitted my request online, then within 15 minutes I received a quote from Monroe, then followed by a call by their professional consultant and everything was aligned professionally in less than 30 minutes. I had a scheduled move by next day 9:00 - 10:00 am Team contacted me sharp 9:00 am and were in place on time. Three skilled workers appared in a smiling face and welcomed me actually, then they started doing the work. Perfect wrapping, perfect handling and kept working in a great manner till the whole task was done. Had to get furniture from two adjacent places and get one intermediate stop and then continue to the final destination. I highly recommend to deal with this company for any one who wants to move his stuff. Thanks Monroe moving pro team for doing this high level job. Was a real pro experience!

Jeff and his team were awesome to work with. They moved my whole 1500 sqft home and traveled over an hour to my new location. They kept me updated every step of the way and they were very careful and very professional. When we got to the new place they put everything where I wanted and set up any furniture that they took apart. The price was great too!! If I need something moved again, I’m calling Jeff!
