Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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’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.

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. 

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

STAY AWAY. He decided to not show up ON THE DAY OF THE MOVE because he took his family out on the exact day he agreed to help us move WEEKS ago. He blamed us for the error and said he didn't even know if he was supposed to come despite accepting the job with the time and confirming what furniture needed to be moved weeks ago. When confronted about his lack of professionalism he told us to cancel the appointment and ended the call. Apparently he will forget about your move unless you keep reminding him about what he should already know.

Although they arrived later than expected they communicated throughout and kept me in the loop. The move did not go as planned to say the least but it was late and the guys kept up the hustle. I had something damaged during the move but bossman came straight to my house the next morning and made it right.

As delivery services currently aren't offering in-home deliveries, I hired them to move a treadmill within my home. They were able to fit me in on short notice, and completed the move quickly. Completely professional, wore masks, and just all around professionals. I would hire them again for future needs, and highly recommend!

First off, if I could give 0 stars I would. They were an hour and a half late for the job. It was supposed to start at 11 they didn’t get there until 1239. I was moving a 2 bedroom apartment. I had already moved 95% of my items in my car myself over a well between my jobs. All the movers had to do was move a fridge, a stove, a deep freezer, 2 dressers, 2 queen sized beds (metal framed- so they are light in weight) and 8 boxes (med-lg). The fridge stove and 6 of those boxes were going to my storage facility and the rest went to my new apartment. I had everything organized and labeled. Even placed separate so the movers would not get it confused. My father is older (70’s) and was there to direct. I was at work. My father explained to the movers what it was. They DID NOT listen and the took advantage. To make the long story short, they milked the job. It was 3 men. They quoted me one price a little over $400 and then by the end of the move they charged almost $900!!! They took my father to the bank for him to get more money out of the ATM. To make matters even worse; they didn’t even put the things that were supposed to go to storage in storage. They sent everything to my house except the stove and fridge. So I had to get help and STILL move these heavy items to storage myself... BEWARE DO NOT USE THEM!! They are VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND PRICE GOUGERS!! I understand this a a pandemic but to take advantage of a situation was not the right way to go. I did threaten to sue them. However, I think just leaving an honest review would serve a much better purpose so they cannot do this to ANYONE else.

I knew I was moving but lacked the motivation to pack. When Chris and Shamus arrived they assured everything would get done AND IT DID. They took charge organizing packing sorting trash and taking to dumpster and told me to just relax. They are hard working respectful and clean workers. Even though there were cheaper companies they had so many positive reviews so I just made up my mind people are getting what they pay for. Went over in time and well outside my budget comfort range but the service, the professionalism, the cleanliness of the job and the guys themselves made me feel as though I hit the moving lottery so don't let the rates fool you..you really do get what you pay for and more! Make sure you tip tkem well. Will use again.

I reached out to this team in a real pickle. We did not have a mover for some of the big items in the home. It was a same-day request so I didn’t think that I would have much success. But they came through and met us in the evening. They even worked with us on a decent price. Nice guy. This worked out well! Thank you so much for making time!!! Job very well done!
