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.

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.

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. 

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.

5 stars isn't enough to rate this move. We've moved over 20 times, all across the world, and this was the absolute best local move we've ever had. In and out in the time promised, so much care was taken in wrapping, moving and the putting things into the new furniture. They even supplied 1 additional person but didn't charge extra. We really can not recommend these folks enough. The owner even speaks with you before the crew leaves to ensure you are completely satisfied. I also used to be a customs inspector for international moves so I know a good move when I see one. Anyone would be absolutely crazy not to consider these folks when making a move.

BEWARE. This mover is either a SCAM or morally corrupt. I hired Cruz for my move. He upcharged me after he provided a quote, because I was moving from NJ to Brooklyn--even though this was clearly outlined in my bid. He outsourced the move to someone else, who showed up late, left items behind at the old apt, left items outside on the street at the new apt, and unapologetically broke several items during the move. Afterwards, I contacted Cruz several times and haven't heard anything since. I still tipped the movers on top of the upcharge but they were also really rude when I pointed out damaged items and left behinds. Please save yourself the headache and call ANYONE else.

Great attitude, they came and got to work immediately and were very nice people. They went above and beyond in some cases, helping me move small items around the house. I was impressed that there were no scratches on my items and the move was very efficient. People with high character and a positive approach to helping people move. I highly recommend them.

I was very pleased with CCS moving company, Sylla and Mario did a great job and took care to move everything carefully. My move was in NJ and the Lincoln tunnel did hold them up but I was expecting that. I chose the flat rate but did receive the option of hourly rate as well as the flat rate and Salimata was very helpful and responsive.

The move was great!!! They were so quick and efficient. The supervising mover Chanelle (Sp???) was great. He was quick and on point. He did a great job taking down my furniture and he tightened by table totally without my asking. I was completely impressed and YES, i would recommend them to anyone in the future. In fact, my boyfriend is using them for his move next week.

No shows. Pricing, date, and time for the move were all discussed and set up. Morning of the move I called them to confirm and somebody hung up on me. Could not reach them thereafter and they did not show. I was due out of my apartment that day and was left scrambling to hire other movers who were available that same day. Terrible experience. -5 stars (if this were an option). STAY AWAY.

Overall they did a great job moving me across the continent. I wish the communication could be more effective and information to be better tracked online. However they are responsive enough on the phone. The only thing I dislike is their suggest tip rate seems high (~30% for long distance move.) I would much rather they charge a higher base/estimate price and lower the tip amount since only the actual price paid are tax deductible. Given a long distance move, I ended up nearly paying thousand just for tip, which seems absurd.

I hired simply moving based on online reviews, slightly worried that the reviews were too good to be true. Turns out every bit of the reviews were true. Walter, Washington, Salvador, Norberto were hardworking, extremely efficient and pleasant! They packed and loaded our entire 1200 sqft home in 4.5 hours! (Other movers gave us an estimate of 8+ hours for the same job!) Highly recommended!

Moving your way was prompt, friendly, hard working, helpful, flexible and professional. They showed up when they said they would, wrapped and boxed up our stuff better than we had it so it was protected. We moved from one place to two separate places with a time limit. They came prepared and worked quickly. They charged a fair price and did a great job. Thanks Barry, you and the crew did a great job!!

After communicating with Zayn Movers for a day, receiving a quote from them and a follow up phone call, I followed up to confirm the reservation the following day. Upon calling, I learned there was a mistake on their behalf and they were NEVER available on my requested date. While I understand they were not available, attention to detail in their industry is super important and it was unfortunate that I wasn’t able to utilize their services and I wasted a day of research to obtain a mover because of the oversight.

I chose CCS since I saw the 133 positive reviews on Thumbtack. Here is my feedback based on my experience. My move date was Oct 3rd 2016. 1) The quote was sent to me via email 1 hour after I spoke to Ibrahim Seck (the guy in charge) 2) The Certificate of Insurance (COI) which was a requirement for my building was sent to me 45 minutes after I requested it 3) The guys arrived at 9:30 AM. I was promised they would arrive between 9 and 10 since Manhattan traffic is unpredictable. Since I had a 3 hour block for my elevator, this was okay with me. 4) The movers were super fast and efficient. Didn't waste any time 5) I would definitely use them again for my next move 6) My entire move for a 1 bedroom with tax, tips and toll came to $330. I spoke to 3 other people who were offering my flat rates and their estimates were in the $500-$600 range. Thank you Ibrahim and team!

I can’t select anything less than this. Worst movers I have ever encountered. I was charged almost double on the initial quoted price, and they were very adamant on the charge without clearly explaining what’s those charge we’re. They key charging by saying this is not included or that’s included etc etc... at one stage they had loaded my stuff on their truck and said We will not download to the new home until you pay all the extras - which I had never agreed. Worst movers....
