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. 

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. 

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.

Movers for a Cause were wonderful to work with; they were communicative, on time, personable, and professional. I used them to move out of an apartment and storage unit and into a house. I recommended them to the person moving into my former apartment, and he ended up hiring them as well! Thanks for a stress free experience guys :-)

Great service. They made my move so much easier. I directed and they moved everything just as I asked- and worked quickly. Even stuff I tried holding they took from me to carry. Don't hesitate... definitely hire these guys.

Reggie helped my husband and me move on 3/4/17. Communication was great leading up to the move and he would get back to me pretty swiftly via email. I was expecting this to go extremely well because he had such excellent reviews on Thumbtack. We were quoted a 2-4 PM arrival window for the move, and Reggie said he'd call about an hour prior to when they'd arrive with a better estimate. Around 3:15 I got nervous because I hadn't heard anything, so I called and called many times before he called back to tell me their first move was taking longer than expected because they "added stuff." He said they wouldn't be at our house until 6 pm and that he'd update me in an hour and a half or so. He never updated me, I had to call him again and again before he picked up to let me know that in fact it was not going to be until 7-7:30 that they could move us. They finally arrived around 7:45 (3 hours and 45 minutes later than the latest time in our window) and completed the move by 10 pm, which was great--they were very efficient. Reggie also added a fourth guy at no charge - we initially only had 3. They were all very polite and friendly too. Reggie also apologized in person. Moving is an extremely stressful thing, and I was getting worried that the move wasn't going to happen because of the lack in communication. I realize the price may be lower because Reggie also moves things himself, so he can't pick up the phone all the time, but I just ask for prompt communication and follow through on your word.

Movers were fast, friendly and efficient and I appreciated the care they gave to my furniture. They even recommended how best to set up the room. Movers arrived at the tail end of their estimated arrival time but emailed me at the beginning of their time frame to let me know. I would definitely use them again.

Do not be deterred by the small number of reviews. They are the real deal. I called these guys at 9:30 in the morning hoping for help that day moving a mattress and some heavy boxes and they made it happen. They were willing to come at 10:00 at night because that was the only time they could make it on such short notice. Super responsive with frequent updates. Super accommodating. Super easy to work with. I cannot thank these guys enough! Do not hesitate to hire for your move, large or small!

Firmus was wonderful to work with on our recent move in Morristown. Chris called a few days before to make sure they didn't need to add an additional guy, packing material, etc. They were a little late but called to let me know they were in traffic, which was nice. All of our furniture was wrapped properly and Chris showed me what they were doing throughout the process and how they packed the truck. Everything was assembled at our new house and put exactly where I wanted it. Huge help, and I would use them again. (But Im not moving for a VERY long time :)

We have several heavy wood pieces, boxes of books, and are not an easy move. The team worked hard and professionally all day, but the team was inexperienced. They brought packing blankets and tape...the tape left residue on some of the items - wish they had straps. They also had a habit of flipping the pieces when navigating the stairs...several time shelves were knocked loose, or forgotten items in drawers fell out. One oak sideboard top was scratched when they were flipping it across a threshold. An experienced team would have checked the drawers and shelves before flipping, and would have put a blanket on the top of the sideboard to protect it. We moved all this cross country without a scratch last year, so found this team was not as good as some.

Hired them just to load up my uhaul with big things I couldn't carry. They worked with me and took the small job. They contacted me the day before to see if I had any questions, and then even showed up early the day of the move. Excellent experience, would recommend to anyone. Super nice guys too

Below is their original quote: $135 per hour Hello Ian, Thanks for taking the time to look at our information. We are a fully licensed and insured family-owned moving company. The minimum hourly rate for this size job is $125 per hour. The hourly rate will be adjusted based on the details of your move. (Minimum estimate is $560 in this location.) Option for FLAT RATE available upon request. I had to wait for construction to be over then had a short window to get this done AND we did a bunch ourselves in our own vans to make it easier. When we went to book "Its our busy season now, you know how it is right?" No I don't, they went to 250/hr and tripled+ the minimum. How professional. DO NOT USE, bait and switch tactics all over the place.
