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.

Skybox movers moved us yesterday. We are very pleased with their service. I highly recommend them to anybody who is looking to move

I hired the movers to move 1 bedroom apartment on 1st floor to another apartmemt on 1st floor in same town. The movers came on time. They had gloves and masks and maintained social distance throughout the move. They took 7 hours to pack and complete the move. I packed few boxes myself to speed up the move. I felt they were bit slow and move could have been finished bit early but nonetheless i think the work was very well done. Their price is very reasonable compared to others. I definitely recommend them will use them in future.

Husky movers helped us move this month and we had a lot of stuff, but they were just so professional and quick, that they made the whole experience easy. They took great care of our stuff, which was much appreciated. We have moved a couple of times before, but these guys were the best yet. I would highly recommend them.

Very professional. Asked for 20% at the beginning of the service because I understand I am not native, so I think that as a reminder. They certainly know how to do moving. Very fast and professional, nothing break or missing. Move some extra for me, too.

Max and his guys from BG moving company were fantastic. Went about their business quietly and professionally. Arrived on time. My move was for a two bedroom apartment moving into a 3 storeyed town home with a lot of stairs. They were fast and very careful with all my stuff. Neatly wrapped and protected every single item. They were humble and patient unlike many jackass movers that I have run into the past. 2 bedroom with full fledged furniture , 65 boxes and a lot of random stuff. Price wise totally worth it. Highly highly recommend them. Max is a great guy and will treat you with a lot of respect. Good stuff guys. Thank you for your services.

Overall, it was a good experience and Dariusz was very communicative via phone and text. The team arrived on time, even brought extra manpower, and was able to move all my things in one hour flat (apartment transfer in same building). Would definitely hire again if the need arose (but not moving again anytime soon).

The guys were super nice, fast, and professional. They didn't blink at the stairs. They helped my crew load everything up. And were five minutes early to getting to the pick up spot. They worked as a team to get things moving and done. I will be going to them first when I need to move stuff back next week.

Fred and two of his employees were great, super friendly guys, very strong, and packed up and loaded quickly as I have plenty of belongings. They moved us from 1 apartment and I had many items in the basement storage to a single family home. They have tremendous energy as it's not easy to keep up high spirits doing strenuous work. The distance was a bit more than about 4:30hours between locations and they loaded and unloaded my items. I was a bit uneasy as this was my first time using a moving company but it definitely helped immensely as my partner and I no longer wanted to do the moving ourselves with aid from family friends. Communication was a bit difficult but Fred eventually would get back to me and let me know not to worry. Price was confirmed then changed so that was also a bit confusing but Fred apologized and acknowledged the issue at hand and I really appreciated that as moving is very costly from 1 state to the next . Fred also provides better deals than several others companies I contacted so I would definitely suggest to use this business for your moving needs.

Eric and his guys (more then 3) showed up early. They move quick! Extremely professional and efficient. I really didn't know what to expect but I will say that I would use you guys 1000000% over. Thank you Eric and the young men who made the move superrrrr easy! David is the manager for fair price, he coordinated everything and responsive is an understatement. No BS, no hidden fees no craigslist rip offs just hard working men who get the job done. If I could rate them a 10, I would.

Sherpa and team were prompt, responsive and did a thorough job in moving our stuff. Very nice folks, patient and attentive. Would love to work with them again. Only constitutive feedback would be that work could have been done a tad faster given there were three folks. But overall very pleased.

Updated review in response to the post from Dyno. I had shown all stuff right from get go and not after the initial stuff was moved out. So either the crew is lying to the management and/or the management is outright lying on ThumbTack. Again, the issue was not only that, it was the 'whiny' nature and attitude of the crew on ground. Also as mentioned, the work was completed end to end in 1 hour and 10 mins and the crew told me while leaving that they had another job to do right after, so they did mine fast/ else it would have been done at a slower place. Anyways, as I said in original review, work done was okay, but there was a lack of professionalism in the service. ------------------------------------- Had an ok experience. I had got a flat fees quote after i told them my pick up and drop off address and an estimate of my stuff. My quote included 3 men and a truck for 2 hours. During the move when i showed my stuff(which was all packed) to the men, they started whining and complaining saying our manager didn't tell us you had 10 boxes, and a fan etc. etc. Overall move went well and was completed in exactly 1 hour 10 minutes (from time of arrival of crew to wrapping up and leaving), so i was surprised they were complaining about the number of boxes while I had paid for 2 hours ( which I didn't even come close to using up). Maybe it was the experience based on the crew that showed up for my move, but I had expected a less whiny and complaining crew, when I had paid for what was quoted and it was very clear from the beginning that we wont even need the whole time.

I hired Reggie for my move from Secaucus to 178th Fort Washington. He and his guys did an amazing job. They got there right on time and moved quickly and we were gone an 1:15 minutes later. When we got to Fort Washington they got everything in as quickly as possible. As with many apartments in Manhattan, there are challenges space wise. I completely made a mistake on my biggest and most expensive piece of furniture. Somehow they managed to get it in the door, with millimeters to spare. He and his guys were a lot of fun, very chill and made what's supposed to be a stressful day very easy. I'll definitely use them next time....especially as they figured out how to get that piece of furniture in, I'm guessing they'll figure out how to get it out!!! Without hesitation I'd use them.
