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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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

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.

I submitted a request to move items and was quoted $395 - $595. Someone called me to go over the items, and I confirmed the exact same, and was quoted $1153. Classic bait and switch. I will not be using them

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 highly recommend Zayn Movers. The 3 young men that were sent to do the job were efficient. The job took longer than expected but it's worth it because all my items were delivered with no scratches! A big thank you to James and his team.

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.

They were able to book me the day before, after I had to fire a different moving company. I’m very pleased with the work they did. Everything was professional and well-taken care of. We had mixes of so many different items and they made it all fit, and worked HARD the whole time. No breaks. No laziness. Got my job done ASAP! I’m using them again in the future. Please don’t hesitate to book Mr. Michael. You won’t be disappointed
