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 did an excellent job of carefully disassembling, transporting and then reassembling and moving the loveseat. They went above and beyond by also helping move furniture to put in the loveseat. The movers and their services are highly recommended!

I am glad i hired Great Movers among dozens of movers because they are the best movers i know. They don't just run their moving company, they are really passionate about their work. The way they communicated via phone or email, spontaneous responses, on time arrival of moving team and the efficiency they showed at that time was remarkable. Choose Great Movers they are able to move you in the most pleasant manner.

Tauren is the best mover I've had the pleasure to work with. He was flexible as I booked last minute and was willing to determine a price that worked for me. I always dread moving, and have had to move around a lot, but this move was no stress. Tauren was conversational and just a really awesome guy. Highly recommended.

I just moved this past weekend. Seka Moving were very professional and polite. They were a pleasure to work with. When necessary they wrapped the furniture to avoid damage, they used moving pads as well. They were amazing. I highly recommend Seka Moving to everyone. I will definitely use their services again!

As we know that moving is very stressful but if you hire Great Movers i can guarantee you a relaxed and stress free move. I was moving from a 2nd floor walk up building and they were so quick that my apartment was empty in only 1 hour. Stairs didn't bother them at all. They carried all the stuff so carefully. I am glad i found Great Movers.

The moving team was not less than angels for me. I was scheduled with other moving company and they cancelled on me in the morning of the moving day. I scrambled trying to find someone to help me moving. I called several moving companies but they were all busy and even answered me with careless attitude. At that time only Great Movers replied me that we are getting free with our morning move earlier so we will only have two hours before our next scheduled move, if you want to move in afternoon we can help you move. I agreed to that and they reached on time. I was expecting that my move would take more than two hours since my old and new apartments both were in walk up buildings but these guys were really fast. They loaded boxes, furniture and other items onto the truck so quickly that i couldn't believe it. I was in my new house within the given time frame. They were so careful they didn't break or damage anything. I just can't thank enough Great Movers for accommodating me in such short notice. Incredible service and very courteous people. Highly recommended.

These movers were great! This was my first experience with a moving company and it was an easy one. David, the owner, was great with communication. The moving coordinator was extremely helpful and professional. I wish one of his men was a little more careful with my boxes because some glass was broken, but I know this often happens in moves too. 5 stars!

When you decide to move, you have to search for movers who are already dealing with their customers and they don't pay much attention to those who are just gathering information at beginning level. I went through same scenario, when i began to search from moving companies i gave them calls to have some basic information that how this process goes on since i was moving for the first time. Only Great Movers was the one who gave each and every information i needed even knowing that i might not be their customer. They answered every query of mine and then i hired Great Movers. My moving experience was very good with them. They have the best team in town who would do anything just to make sure that you will have a smooth and successful move. Thank you guys!

I have used Great Movers twice and had positive experience both times. I am one of the happiest customers of this moving company. They are communicative and timely in their responses indeed. I requested them a quote and they responded me in 1 hour. On moving day movers found heavy traffic and they kept me updated which i really appreciate. They were efficient, fast and friendly both times. I would recommend Great Movers to all of my friends and family

Had furniture and boxes moved from storage unit into apartment. Noticed hardwood floors were scratched after movers left. Owner was a little rude when I called with a question about the bill. Price was decent however and the movers were friendly.
