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 unloaded a POD and moved the furniture into my son's new apartment. They were extremely friendly and worked very hard. They paid special attention to making sure furniture was not dinged or damaged. We will definitely call them in the future for help with moving!

Had a great experience with Reno Moving Company! From the start, Steve responded to my request for a quote immediately and had great communication leading up to moving day. On the day of, he sent 3 of his crew members who moved us from a third floor apartment to a house. They were on time, strong, and efficient and took great care with our belongings. Definitely hire them for any of your upcoming Reno moves! Would recommend and would definitely hire again!

James was great to work with. I had a very small "in house" project moving some heavy furniture. He went out of his way to do this small move for me. The rate was great and he is professional, efficient, and courteous. I will be calling him again and very highly recommend him for any moving project you may have.

The movers were very efficient and never stopped moving from the time they arrived until the job was completed. A neighbor even commented positively on their non-stop activity and pace. Super value for a job well done.

I cant say enough good things about Reno Moving. They are professional, fast and suoer careful with my items. I called at the last minute to move my elderly Father who lived on the 3rd floor with steep stairs. Stevie and Seth moved him fast and how they mastered going up and down those stairs so easily, I'll never know. Just yesterday, I needed some furniture i bought at a consignment store moved. They were booked out with delivery for 3 weeks. I called RMC and they were there the same day!!!!! I'm just so impressed. Thankyou Stevie and Seth! They made my move so stress free!!!

Thank Steven for working me into your schedule today. We could never have moved those pieces of furniture. I had 3 large heavy pieces of furniture I needed moved from upstairs to downstairs. Reno moving responded right away. They kept me informed of their timing, and were very professionally. Definitely would call them again.

Thank you! They could not have made our third story apartment move any easier. Happy customers here. Would definitely use their service again. Left their business card with a family member for future move. Awesome job.

I can definitely recommend Reno Moving Company. Stevie and his employees did an outstanding job moving us from our 2500 sq ft home. They were on time, always working, went over and above to take extra furniture we needed to go to a consignment store. Everything was wrapped & protected and made it to our new location intact and with no damage. They even helped us unload a second UHaul we had packed full. I hope we don’t move again for awhile but will call Reno Moving Company again when we do.

In general, moving is a pretty stressful experience. However, working with Steven and his team at Reno Moving Company reduced my stress and made for an exceptionally pleasant moving experience. To start, Steven actually took the time to come to my apartment and Reno and inspect things before quoting a cost. He was upfront about the options, considerations, and how long the entire process would take. I felt really comfortable with Steven and his team based on this level of professionalism and knowledge. On moving, Steven and his staffer arrived on time and got right to work. They were pleasant and with a global pandemic going on, very safe, making sure to wear masks. Traffic on the 80 was very gnarly that day but that didn't phase Steven and his team. They were patient and when they arrived at our new home they got right to work. As our new home was recently renovated I appreciated the carefullness and precision with which they moved and placed our items in the new apartment. I would recommend Reno Moving Company to anybody that wants to work with a moving company that value integrity and carries out their work with care.

I haven’t had them actually move anything yet since my contractor keeps changing the completion date but Steve has been so patient and responsive to those changes. Because of his professionalism, I’m sure the actual move itself will go smoothly.

I have had movers before but these guys have been the best. We will be moving again in a year and I will for sure call James again my husband and I could not have been happier with their help.

We recently remodeled our home, and with antiques dating back to when my husbands family migrated here from Denmark four generations ago we did quite a bit of research on moving companies. My husband called Bob and set a date and time to come move the antiques to the garage. They were here at the exact time, with proper equipment and packing blankets to move the heavy pieces. We can't say enough good about how well Bob's company handled moving our antiques! Once the remodel was complete they came back and moved everything right back in for us with the same care and respect they showed the first time! I must say, we asked for and received quotes from large companies but, we don't think they could have done a better job moving our beloved family treasures. Bob is a pleasure to work with and if we ever need help again, we're calling Above The Rim. You won't go wrong if you decide to use this little company. They might be small but, they're mighty! Thank you so much Bob!

Although Reno Moving Company didn’t do my move (I had some confusion with the company I had scheduled) they were so helpful and kind trying to fit me in a the very last minute should I end up needing help. Very professional and quickly responsive to my call for help.

This was my first time using movers instead of doing it myself, because of this I was extremely nervous about what could happen. Steve and the Reno Moving Company instantly put me at ease and made me realize it was the best thing I could have done. They were right on time, worked in a professional manner, friendly, took great care of all my possessions (not a single mark), made sure everything was placed right where I wanted it, and completed the work quickly. I would highly recommend this company to anybody looking to move.
