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.

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’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. 

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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

Reviews for Englewood movers
Surya K.
Thank you for helping us move (1 bedroom + 1 working room stuff) on a short notice. We deeply appreciate it. Here's the stuff that went well: 1) They showed up on time. That got rid of any anxiety caused due to delays. 2) There were no major damages to kitchen stuff. 3) The sofas and media unit, including the TV were wrapped well and moved without any issues. 4) The bed frame, mattress and chairs were moved without any damage. 5) Despite slight rain, they helped move all the items.  I wanted to mention a couple of things that would have been better: 1) The team (2 ppl) worked slowly at the beginning, and took their time to pack the kitchen, and move the boxes. 2) They damaged the standing computer desk control knob (which is used to move it up and down). 3) When I tried communicating to avoid damages, they said this is not my first time moving stuff, and took a picture and moved on.  4) All the time they were in the house, they complained about how much work it was, and how Blue Moving does not pay them enough.  5) They said I should give them more than 20% of the bill amount as cash tips. Only after I confirmed I would, they stopped complaining about the amount of work, and started to move stuff into the new house. 6) They said they will leave the boxes all in the living room since they are getting late. I started to move stuff (duffle bags, boxes etc.) myself and then requested them to help move upstairs. They moved some boxes after. 7) I ended up giving them $200 in tips to wrap up the move.   I understand that moving is manual and labor intensive work. I appreciate the support and help the team provided with moving our stuff. However, I would have appreciated some professionalism from the team. The move ended up costing me $870 + $200 => $1070, but I do not have the satisfaction of getting such service. I do not mean to offend anyone. Again, I am grateful for the service on short notice, but I wish it was better. Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year.

Mr. Moore and his team was extremely organized and handles my items with exceptional care. The quality of work they performed was superb. I can not say enough about them. I have utilized and spoke with multiple moving companies in many states and what I can say hands down Mr. Moore is a quality professional. If you ever need moving services, local or long distance, look no further. They should be ranked the #1 moving company in NJ. Honest, Trustworthy and Ethical which is hard to find in the moving business. Choose Mr. Moore and his team you will be glad you did!! He will make your move stress-free!!

Fair Price Movers were fantastic! These guys are very hard working and cautious about taking care of your furniture. My husband and I were very pleased b/c nothing was scratched or damaged and the doorways in our new home are very narrow. We just refinished our wood floors and after the move they were still in perfect condition. I would highly recommend this company and should I ever need moving help I would not hesitate to call this company again.

In all seriousness, I have never experienced an easier move. The two gentleman were on time, kind, respectful, and RAN in between loading up the truck and unloading. Extremely cautious of my belongings and were extremely patient to make sure I brought everything. All in all, my trip was from NJ to NYC and they did it in 2 hours. I will be using and referring Skybox for no one. Look no further, these are your guys! Thanks so much!
