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 Hoboken movers
Thumbtack Customer
I would highly recommend Moving UR Way to anyone that has moving needs. Barry and Walt were both extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process. The move that we used them for was fairly complicated by having to move multiple apartments into a single apartment, but they were very accommodating and understanding. All of the furniture that they moved was carefully wrapped and unwrapped and there were no scratches / damage to anything that they moved. Overall I was very happy with the experience that I had with Moving UR Way and I highly recommend them.

I hired Simply Moving for a long distance move from NYC to NC. They were great every step of the way. They were extremely fast and efficient in their time picking up my boxes, and moving back in. They also placed my things in storage for a week because I had a gap in my move out/move in dates. None of my things were damaged from being in storage (no stale odors or water damage.. which I've heard of people experiencing with other companies). I moved a lot of china and kitchen appliances and all of it made it through the move in one piece. Only 1-2 small glass things broke, which were actually my fault because they weren't packed with enough packing paper (I slipped a little towards the very end of my packing!). For a long distance move, I thought this was impressive. Also, everyone I dealt with, from the Simply Moving sales team, to the NYC movers, and the NC truck drivers/movers, were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend using this company.

Victor and Javier did a great job moving my husband and I from Hoboken into NYC the morning after Thanksgiving. They made sure that all of our belongings were protected and moved us very efficiently despite the fact that they had to move a large number of our items up three flights of stairs. I would definitely use Victor Moving again.

I was very nervous to find movers that wouldn't short hand me and actually do a job that i was happy with. Fair Price Movers was outstanding, they were polite, careful, and quick! We moved in 3.5 hours (with a 5th floor walk up). David's team was great and i'd recommend them to anyone moving. Well worth the money. Be sure to tip them well, they deserve every dollar!

We had a tricky move with a move-out date on one day and delivery 200 miles away the next day. Louis took care of our plan and quote and was an excellent communicator as we approached moving day. The team was outstanding, and everything was completed with quality and on time both days.
