Your burning questions: answered

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.

Excellent movers, showed up before time. Extremely professional to make the move a cake walk. Guided us during the packing and took good care of fragile items. Helped us unpack at the new place and put the furniture back together !!. I will highly recommend Jose and his crew and they were fast and finished everything in less than 6 hours (2BR plus storage move from White plains to Eastchester).

Jason was very professional and very efficient in helping us move some furniture from my home to my son’s home. He came to our house on time, thoroughly wrapped the furniture and moved it with great efficiency. His rates were very reasonable and he was very pleasant to deal with. I recommend him very highly.

I would give a zero if I could. This company was the ABSOLUTE WORST!!!! Booked them and then had to reach out to confirm myself the day before. That should have been an indication. I was told they would be at the pick up location no later than 2. 2pm rolls around and no calls. I call the numbers and get blown off. Finally at 3 get a call from the movers that they “might” show up at 5 or 6!!! I had specifically told them I was only allowed to move between 9-5pm. On top of it the mover was laughing at me. Completely unprofessional. Well they never showed and I was out more money than I wanted to be. The only positive was that Zona did not move me and I will make sure everyone knows this is by far the worst company. DO NOT USE!!!!!!

Alex was very responsive from the time of booking until the actual move. He provided a very competitive rate. The guys were very professional, efficient and worked with a smile even when I asked them to move boxes from one room to another. I would definitely hire them again and would recommend them to my friends and family.

BG.Moving company did an exceptional job handling my move today! From start to finish they were friendly, professional and fast working. In addition, their price was very reasonable and fair. After contacting them online through Thumbtack, they were quick to respond and easy to work with. They even arrived a half hour early on the day of the move, but were happy to wait if we were not ready for them. The movers provided all the necessary pads and wraps to protect my furniture and handled my things in a respectful and careful manor so that nothing was damaged or broken. The kind, friendly manor of both young men made it a pleasure to have them in my home on a stressful day. I will not hesitate to recommend this company to others and I thank BG.Moving for a job well done!

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Christian and his crew were. We were given only 3 days notice on our closing/moving date, and on that date, the closing time kept getting pushed later into the afternoon. Every time I spoke to Christian to adjust or push the start time, he did everything he could to accommodate me. We were still in the process of packing while we were moving, and everyone of the 4-man crew went above and beyond to help, offer assistance, or come up with solutions to problems. I’m 7.5 months pregnant and when I needed to rest or lie down, they patiently worked around me. They stuck around til almost midnight to make sure there was nothing else they could help with. On top of that, they took such great care of our stuff and put everything exactly where we asked. All with a great attitude and sense of humor... I can’t recommend Step by Step movers highly enough! If I ever need moving services in the future (which I hope I don’t for a while) I will not hesitate to call them.
