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. 

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.

Reviews for Yonkers movers

I would have clicked all five options if I could have. Veteran & Sons is a great moving company, I highly recommend them. My bf/I moved from his parents house upstate to an apartment in Bronx. Sovery called ahead to make a moving plan/pick the size of the truck/etc. From speaking with Sovery it was clear that he works with each customer to make sure the move/vehicles/planning is tailor made to whatever the customer's moving needs are. The day of the move Sovery and Victor showed up early and were able to get the move done start to finish in a few hours. I've lived in the NY area for about ten years and they're by far the best movers I've ever worked with, you should absolutely hire them for your next move.

This was a last minute move. I made the appointment at 3am, 3 days before my move and within the hour I received a response. The guys that helped us move worked fast. They were very friendly. They moved us out and into our new house in 3 1/2 hours. They helped us pack our TVs and our mattresses. I definitely recommend.

Liga did an awesome job on my move. The movers were extremely professional, thorough and took meticulous care in protecting all of my furniture. They arrived right on time and got the move done extremely fast, but did not sacrifice quality and care. They took time to protect all my furniture and get everything placed exactly where I asked. My only recommendation for new customers is to ask questions before the moving date such as payment options so a customer can be prepared on moving day.

Very happy with the move. Paris led the whole project. Kudos to the team. The team arrived little late due to the traffic which is unavoidable given the move was on a Monday, but the packing and moving was done in no time!! I took the full service packing and moving for my studio apartment and the team did a wonderful job in professionally packing all my belongings. They came fully equipped with packing materials and helped to de-assemble bed frame, TV and other bulky furniture. The whole project of packing and moving took three of them around 3 hours. I have another move coming up soon and will surely take their service again. Highly recommend the company!!

Hands down, best moving experience I’ve ever had- and I’ve moved a number of times. Tyler, the owner, is extremely responsive and conscientious. The two movers who arrived kept me in the loop as to their exact arrival time (as did Tyler, and they were even early per my request!), and were beyond polite and professional. I felt very comfortable having them move all my personal belongings and would probably only ever use them again. I strongly recommend you cancel the other movers you booked and book Beaumont instead!

I booked them less than 24hrs before I needed my things to be moved from storage into my new apartment. They showed up on time and ready to work. They had to make two trips in order to move my things and never complained. They even reassembled my bed set. AND THEY ARE EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE WHICH IS A BIG PLUS! Hire them for your moving needs. You definitely won’t be disappointed. Thank you guys!

We had a great experience moving our baby grand piano with All Around Trucking! They called ahead to let us know when they would arrive; they were on time, and they had the right equipment to move the piano. They were experienced, friendly and professional. I recommend them without hesitation.

The movers from Blue Moving showed up on time and were very careful with packing and loading all our furniture and boxes. The job was bigger than expected (I had not been able to schedule a walk through) and they had to get another truck. They were clear about the additional cost that would be incurred. As agreed, they drove the 300 miles to our new residence the next morning and unloaded everything quickly and efficiently. They even moved around some of the existing furniture for us. I would use them again and highly recommend them.

I had such an amazing experience. Brig and his team were absolutely wonderful, patient, understanding and provided the service I was looking for. They came prepared with extra blankets and boxes to make my move easier and protect my items. I moved a lot of furniture and boxes out of storage and into my new home and they did not rest until they got the job done. They were very professional and I would use them again and highly recommend for anyone looking for great service at a reasonable price. I attached a picture of the earlier stage and the move and how they protected my items with blankets and how they maximized the space in the truck to fit all my stuff in one trip. Thanks for everything!

Such an awesome company! Jason worked with me and accommodated my crappy management company that I was leaving from Yonkers to my move to Scranton. Him and his team were professional, speedy and efficient. Alex and Jose are magic together, worked well with my fiancée and i and really placed all the furniture with care. they had wrapped everything, secured my TV and fragile items. everything about this company is just awesome. Thanks for a stress free move!
