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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

Reviews for Lynbrook movers

An interesting situation, upon moving day the crew stated they hit a tree on the way to my house. Upon arrival, they said that someone stole the lift and they are unable to take large items, but will return in a few days once the switch is replaced. As they returned for moving day #2, they were about 6 hours late, in which time I packed more items and moved them out. They showed up in a van and claimed the truck was not fixed and the van was lower to the ground to lift things into. They packed the van and set up move date #3. Move date #3, I arrived at my old place early and as the time came closer to our meeting time, I texted them. Then messaged them on thumbtack. Then called (straight to voicemail). Eventually someone texted back that they would get back to the crew. Move time was pushed back, so I ran errands. Then move time was pushed back again, so I canceled. Move date #4, they showed up with the truck and moved all my remaining items except 2 couches which they could not get through the door. They told me they would figure it out and return the next day to get the couch, which they did on move day #5. Pros - they are very careful. For the amount, size and weight of items, they had almost nothing cause any damage. They were fair with pricing, as extraordinary circumstances prevented the move from being completed day 1, they did not charge me for driving time for the remaining move days. They do an excellent job of reassembly. Cons - their punctuality is subpar. Things get lost. I lost a base part of a table stand in their van. One of them almost moved a part that was from someone else's move. The tend to move slowly and take minimal amounts of items. I assisted in moving items and 2 of them took 1 couch cushion/section while I took one myself. Even unscrewing parts, one of them used a power drill slower than I can do by hand. Overall, not a terrible experience and I would hire them again, although the punctuality is very annoying.

They showed up on time and were easy to work with. Super nice crew and went above and beyond to get things done in a professional manor. Miguel and his buddies were courteous and super fast, still minding the equipment they were moving. In my mind, total heroes, and got everything moved safely and quickly. Definitely calling them back if I need more moving done.

I had a great experience with this company. I hired them to move bedroom furniture to my home. They were on time and very professional. They safely and securely transported the furniture with no issues. They were very reasonably priced. I would definitely work this company again.

This is the second time Jordan helped me out. I texted him this morning with a job and was here by noon to help me out! He did several tasks for me quickly once again with a smile and so carefully! And sooo reasonable but I ended up giving Jordan more because I felt the figure he quoted was too low for his work! I would definitely recommend him for any moving job! Definitely five stars in all categories! :)
