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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Mount Vernon movers

I hired Simply Moving to handle my small move and it was a great experience. The crew, Diop, Nenad, Mancio, and Scott arrived and completed the job in around 3 hours. They each had their assigned roles and followed the lead mover which made for a smooth move. They were courteous and efficient which has also helped for a non-eventful day. Always be sure to review your moving estimate details and also be clear in giving direction when the movers arrive. I will recommend Simply Moving to any of my neighbors who may be ready to move. Great job guys!

My move consisted of 2 separate apartments, 2nd floor and 3rd floor walk ups going to another 3rd floor walk up. The movers Vedron, Nikola and Ivan were amazing. They were extremely organized and completed what I thought was a complicated move in 4 hours. I've moved a lot (more than 10 times) and this was the least stressful move I've ever experienced thanks to these guys. I've already recommended them to a couple of friends that are planning to move next month.

I moved from an upstairs apparent with a very narrow staircase to a house with an even more narrow staircase. These three amazing young men did everything possible to ensure that my move was seemless. I highly recommend them and would definitely use their moving service again

Working with the sales reps and movers was great; everyone was professional and very quick to reply to my questions. There was a scheduling issue of some kind and the movers arrived very late, but they were nice and moved all of my belongings without any damage (including a large TV and mirror). Overall a good experience and price!

They were so responsive and accommodating the entire time I had with Seka Moving. It was a compressed time when I contacted them for my move. But this moving company shows dedication for the job and unconditionally took over the job so stressful to me. They were very swift, efficient, and polite with their assigned job. It was for me a difficult moment but it was made much easier with Seka Moving support. NO charge for the travel time. My unbounded approximation to my job seemed very easy to them. I would definitely use them again if necessary and unreservedly recommend them to everyone.

These guys are super movers!! These guys were terrific! I’ve never seen movers like them before. They packed up my two-bedroom drove 30 mins to unpack and reassemble my bed in less than 4 hours. I recommend them! No hidden fees; what I was told in my quote, is what I paid at the end, plus a good tip because these guys are so awesome. If your considering movers, don’t even consider anyone else! Go with LK. You won’t be disappointed!

The team arrived on time and moved all my items to the basement as requested. This included items that were unwieldy to move like the treadmill. (A little wide to fit through doorways and down the stairs.) I was very pleased with all aspects of the transaction. The team was polite and professional to deal with. Would definitely use them again.

The movers were extremely professional. They did come later than was originally scheduled due to an issue with getting the truck but I was notified first thing in the morning. Once they arrived they got right to work and they worked NON STOP!!!! The job was done within the timeframe that was given and the price was VERY REASONABLE. I would recommend these mover TO ANYONE!!!!

His response time was good, but he kept adding charges for different things. There was a scratch on my new floors that wasn't there before they started moving the furniture, but they said they didn't do it.

Dealt with this guy Sam who was all nice until the day of my move which was on Sunday the 22nd. He called the Thursday before to ask if I would be ok with them changing my scheduled time. I agree to go from the earlier time to mid day which I would advise you not to do since the movers showed up late. I really this company the service was just disrespectful all around. There was no one anwering the phone is the office when it was time to run my card. Seriously the worst. How are they on Thumbtack best list is questionable. They seem to understand how give a realistic estimate.

Sheldon and his team did an amazing job moving me from a three-bedroom house with a basement to a three-bedroom apartment. Thanks to this team, what I thought would be an impossible task was executed with professionalism at a very reasonable price. It was a pleasure to work with these four young men

I wanted to relocate a treadmill from the basement to the first floor. Unfortunately they were unable to move it due to e size. The 2 men tried their hardest to get it upstairs. There was minor damage to my wall but I was able to fix myself They were very nice but after trying different ways we gave up.

I must say this company was excellent. Dariusz was very responsive to my texts and was even able to accommodate our change of move date. The workers were fast, very professional, and everything arrived at the new location in tact. They arrived a little earlier then the time scheduled which showed me they were professional. They made sure all furniture was wrapped up correctly. They disassembled and assembled the furniture quickly. When they arrived at the new location they made sure all the boxes were in the correct rooms since they were labeled. They didn’t waste any time. They came to do a job and get it done and they did just that. The move was very smooth and that was a ease off my mind because I didn’t have to lift a finger they did all the work. I would highly recommend them.

To transport few things is quite good because it has a pickup, although he is able to move large furniture on several trips, which means paying twice as much. but you can negotiate with him. A negative aspect is that it does not have enough material to fit the furniture, which in my case I have the mattress left on the floor unprotected and stained.
