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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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 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.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

The review above was in error. I have not as yet moved and used their services. But all indications to me seem to be that they will be excellent. Will update my review after I move.

Really cohesive and fast moving crew. Very experienced. High energy and easy communicating. Very quiet, not common but great extra feature. Neighbors had no idea we moved in they were that automatic.

I was looking for movers last minute (I’m a procrastinator) contacted them on a Monday for a Saturday moving date. Jeff provided quick responses to my many questions as I was comparing other companies, they even quickly responded when I sent messages late at night. Day of the Move: The guys were on time professional and efficient. Price was definitely reasonable, no hidden fees or add-ons. Was exactly what he quoted. I was happy with my choice. I would recommend the service. I will be moving again in a little over a year and will hire them again!

Very satisfied with their excellent service. Ours was a long distance move ( New Jersey to Dallas,Texas) great value for the price. Communication was great, they are constantly in touch during the move to report the location they are in and ETA. Very professional and punctual, couldn’t be more pleased with their service. I highly recommend happy4moving to anyone any day.

Efficiency Moving & Services was a joy to work with! Ron and his fellow mover arrived on time and knew exactly how to load and our truck efficiently and safely for a cross-country drive. Everything stayed in perfect condition. They were also pleasant to chat with and we enjoyed the few hours we spent with them while they loaded our truck!

Had a great experience with Fair Price Movers. I will definitely recommend. I appreciated their quick responses and they always kept me updated. We did have a delay and couldn’t get my things moved on the scheduled day but Vance managed to resolve that issue for me. I scheduled for 2 men for 3.5 hours. It did take them about 5 hours to move everything for me. However, they did an exceptional job. They wrapped everything up for me and packaged the delicate items. I was very happy with the service they provided. Both men worked hard and got the job done!

Alex and Matthew were great very friendly they went above and beyond to help make my move less stressful. The only reason my rating was a 5 was because,while Alex and Matthew were being friendly the other mover that came with them was an A**.All he did complaint and talk about the guys and the owner for having them around. If it was for that my rating would have been a 10.

Kadeem and his team were extremely dedicated and professional. Prompt communication before, during, and after the move was reassuring. They arrived on time as promised, and treated our items, as well as the walls with care. They did a great job.

Great price! Even greater customer service!! I have not yet had my moving experience with them, but based on the conversation I had with Zoly, I am sure it is going to be great. He is the owner of the company and makes sure that every customer gets individual attention. He makes sure that we have all the information ahead of time so there are no surprises on the moving day. It's very affordable pricing as well. They get a list of all your inventories and customize it based on the number of things instead of charging by the hour unreasonably.

I'm very pleased with Kadeem & his friend. He booked on short notice, & accepted my negotiation of 2 hours for our small job, despite his minimum 4 hours.. They helped us move heavy boxes, unpacked a heavy desk & moved it into position, and had great attitudes, very positive & nice. They even took out the cardboard from the desk & put it in the garbage. They got our job done in an hour and a half too! If I could change 1 thing about the experience it would be for him to call me to say he was running late. At 30 minutes, I called him & he did tell me he was delayed in NYC on a job. I totally understand unavoidable delays, but a courtesy call would have been appropriate. It was a good thing I wasn't doing anything that night as they were over 2 hours late from the time we set up. Again, it wasn't a deal breaker for me, and they more than made up for it.

I found this company to be extraordinary. They were right on time and had professional moving equipment and supplies. They worked quickly while treating my possessions as if they were their own. In other words, they were experienced and knowledgeable. They had protective gloves and masks, an unfortunate and necessary reality with the virus spread. They also helped me out by assembling new computer desk and a new bed frame for me. They courteously told me “that’s what we do”! Highly recommend!

I hired Kadeem and his helper on a $65 per hour basis for moving my 1 bedroom apartment from my old apartment to my new one just a few blocks away. What went good: - loading of furniture and boxes into the truck was done very well. Space management in the truck was done very well which avoided me for a second trip. - they take good care of your furniture and boxes. They handle them with care. Unfortunately my TV stand has got some scratches on the top but apart from that no other furniture or items got any damage. What could have gone better: My apartment had a very long walk from my house to the service lift and then another long walk to the truck. So the move did not happen as fast as I expected, but maybe Kadeem and co can be a bit more faster, that way could finish the task in a bit less time. This is not a complaint, but may be something which can get better in future. Overall I was happy with servicemen offeeed by Kadeem. Would definitely recommend his service to others

These guys are great! I hired them to swivel our washer and dryer, and not only did they move it, but they cleaned it and did a wonderful job. I then asked them to take out an old mattress and box spring, since it was within the 2 hours, and they did it without complaint or question. In fact, they were so pleasant and competent, it was a pleasure having them in our home. This is the 2nd time they've done work for us (they unpacked a huge, heavy desk & assembled/threw away the packing stuff), and I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend them.
