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.

The movers were on-time and brought in another mover to help so that the move took place smoothly and within the expected time frame. Cost is very reasonable, movers were all polite and professional.

When K&Z movers abandoned our move only partially done (quitting time at 6:30 PM!) on a Saturday night, we called Midnight Movers for rescue. They showed up with little notice and finished the move for us.

Movers arrived on time and were very efficient how they approached the job. I estimated the move would take two hours and they completed it in 1-1/2 hours. They covered furniture in the truck and my belongings were moved without a scratch. I highly recommend Midnite Movers.

The men who moved our furniture worked very hard and were friendly. The amount of time allowed for the move and the size of the truck were way underestimated; it took two trips and 8 hours to move 3 miles.

This moving company was not prepared at all for our move. The manager was VERY hard to get a hold of the days leading up to the move and he never returned my calls or texts. I felt like I had to call every hour before I’d get through to him. Despite the numerous times I verified with the manager that this was a moving out type arrangement, that included moving us out of our 1800 sq ft apartment, and included the move of our piano, the movers arrived with a truck that was way too small and didn’t have a lift for the heavy piano. The move ended up taking much longer than was necessary and they weren’t able to finish until they had the correct truck. The first guys in the small truck did all they could to make the most of the situation. They made several trips for us to get moved as much as possible. And they were courteous and professional. The second truck movers finally arrived and we’re told they were only going to move xx # of items, to include the piano. They seemed very annoyed with us and seemed like they just couldn’t get the job done fast enough. I recommend the first guys who helped us (the two who actually did the moving) to open there own moving business rather than work for this company.

I initially spoke with Adam to schedule the move and he was flexible and more than willing to accommodate our tight schedule with the move. Ken and Norman arrived on the day of the move and they were absolutely wonderful! They were on time and helped us move out of our storage unit in an under an hour so were weren't charged for an additional month of storage. They were professional and very friendly. I would absolutely recommend this company if you are moving.

Hired Midnite Movers to move from two apartments into our new house. They were incredibly helpful and were very professional. Earlier that day, it had snowed so they were falling a bit behind schedule. Adam called me and offered to bring two separate crews and trucks to move us for the same price! They helped move all of our stuff neatly and were careful to not scuff our furniture or the walls. Would definitely recommend them 100% to anyone looking for movers. They were fast, friendly, and competitively priced compared to other moving companies in the area.
