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.

Jason was very responsive with the quote and any questions I had before the move. On the day of the move him and his team member, Angel, were timely, courteous, and knew what they were doing. They completed the move in an extremely professional manner and I would hire them for any future moving needs.

Great furniture moving job by Gavin and his helper. Came on time; were expert at disassembling, moving and reassembling 2 heavy/bulky pieces, and also removing/moving gym equipment. Fast, efficient and reasonable. Highly recommended.

This was my first attempt of using Thumtack and a moving service. Before this I always asked friends to help out. With covid, I opted for this service and it couldn't had been better. The guys showed up early, packed and moved stuff quickly. Drove 30ish miles and helped move stuff to my new apartment. Very professional and safe. I know now who to approach the next time I move places.

I had a great experience by moving with Redhat Moving and Storage. They make the move to feel easy and stress free. They handled all the items very carefully, they wrapped up all the furniture, and disassembly challenging item such as sofa to fit the door. They are very efficient and clean to work, as well as, providing competitive rates without hidden extra charges. I would highly recommend them if you want to have a pleasant moving experience!

If you want a five star service, give skybox a try, believe me they wouldn't disappoint you. My experience starting with getting a quote, a certificate of insurance, the punctuality on day of my move, carefully and professionally packing my stuff, delivery and setting up at my move in location was exceptional. Price are very reasonable and crystal clear. They charge flat per hour rate which include movers, truck, gas and packing material. Finallyi would like to say a big thank you Igor (Supervisor) & his team. Keep up the good work.

Movers were friendly and worked quickly. They left many things behind and I needed to take 4 extra trips to empty the apartment myself. That was disappointing.

I was promised three movers and was sent two. This extended the length of the move significantly. The estimated amount of time we were quoted was incredibly understated, which of course left us an incredibly surprising bill at the end. The office was unwilling to compromise and very unprofessional. We were also lied to, accused of lying ourselves, and left with no apology, just a hefty bill. I do not recommend you ever do business with this company

I had to put my stuff in storage where I had some friends help me , unfortunately some of my things got damaged . When I was ready to move to my new place I was a little nervous about getting other stuff damaged or anything going wrong . This company was great . As soon as they arrived and I told Them about my fears they assured me all Will be done with the most care . All my furnisher was wrapped and covered . They were fairly quick with the move which was surprising do to the fact that they had to go up stairs and I had a lot of stuff. Nothing was broken , the walls weren’t scratched in any way . I was 100% pleased with there service that I gave them more then the price . That’s another thing they were reasonable . Thanks guys for making my move just a little Less stressful . I will for sure recommend you .

I just want to say that working with these men was the smoothest and best move I’ve ever had they are quick on your feet and if I had an issue with something I needed to pack they alway had a solution on how to help me make it better. They reassured me everything would be OK during my move across the country and they were very Sweet most of all. I would definitely look forward to using them again. They were very affordable as well and had everything I could needed if I was missing anything if you have a chance to use them you would not be disappointed. I would recommend them to everyone.

They were nice and quick. They wore masks. They followed our requests & instructions to the T. They gave us a good value for money deal as per our requirement. (One can ask them in advance to wear gloves suited for movers which would have put our minds at ease.)

Every question I had was answered to my satisfaction, they were prompt, cheerful, polite and confident. They moved the furniture needed to get the piano out and carefully put it right back where it belonged. They communicated promptly with the person receiving the piano, and everything arrived in good shape. They made it all seem easy. Many thanks!
