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.

They were very late the day of the move. The owner promised 3 movers and a big truck. They showed up with 2 movers and a small Uhaul truck. They moved about half of my house over a 7 hour timeframe. My friend and I had to move the rest the next day and we did in about half the time these guys milked the clock. They broke multiple items during the move. The owner took off next to nothing for the entire mess of the move. Go ANYWHERE besides these clowns. Seriously. Anywhere.

I had Antonio and Henna Mover's pack and move me. I have never had this experience before. I now will not move unless I have the packing done also. Ken, Mike and Amy did a fantastic job of packing me, fast, courteous, and very efficient. Ken stayed behind to move my belongings to where they would be picked up for moving, saving me time that day. The day of the move Antonio and his two helpers were there before 7am. Loaded and ready to leave by 9:30 am. Arrived in Indiana from Ohio by 12:30 or so. Everything unloaded, bed put up and all things they took apart, put together. In both instances, I was not allowed to move anything, they all moved anything I wanted moved. I would recommend this moving company to one and all! They are fantastic!!!

They punctually arrived on site and handled our furniture and belongings with care. The move was smooth, hassle-free, and completed ahead of schedule. We’ll hire them for any future moving needs. Hands down, when it comes to moving, these are the guys that you want to leave it to.

I called a few moving companies for estimates. They gave me an estimate of my move over the phone - with just me telling them what I had to move. Then I got in contact with You Move Me and I was impressed right off when they actually came to my house to SEE what I needed move. I got an estimate that same day and felt confident of the cost of my move. They were on time on the day of the move, even called 30 minutes before they arrived. The crew was wonderful! They walked around with us as we explained what was to go and worked nonstop throughout the day to get our move completed in a timely manner. They were polite and very careful with our belongings. They always asked where we wanted them to put the belongings and never complained - even when I said for the 100th time "In the basement". :) They really left a good impression and I would highly recommend them for your move!

I needed assistance to move my office, including several large furniture pieces. An Extra Body Movers contacted me the night before the move to confirm the time, showed up timely, and went above and beyond the projected scope of the move to ensure everything was placed exactly where it needed to be, and in the best position to showcase the new office. This company combines the benefits of a large moving company, with the personal service of a small company, and all without hidden costs. I would definitely recommend this company.

I inquired about moving one piece of exercise equipment. I was concerned with ensuring the movers are insured, which HELP states they are. After shopping around, I found other insured movers willing to do the job for cheaper, so I notified HELP that I would not like to continue moving forward. The attached photo was their response. They make legitimate points about quality vs price, but in a very unprofessional way suggesting the other movers might come back to rob me or kill me. Not acceptable.

While the movers themselves were wonderful, the organization of management was terrible. My move time was set for noon-1 and they finally arrived at 5:15. This was after multiple attempts from myself to get an updated time of arrival after the original move time was missed.
