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.

Eko Movers were fast and efficient for my long distance move from Cleveland to Charlotte. I'd call them again for my next move.

I had the absolute pleasure of having this company help me move. My movers were early, polite, hard working, fast, and genuinely cared about getting the move done quickly and safely. They never complained about any difficult item that had to be moved. They used highly analytical thinking skills to find ways to move items without them being damaged. I can not recommend this amazing company enough! Best movers ever.

I had a good experience working with ASAP Moving and Hauling. It was a very hot and humid day but the two movers still worked hard to complete the move. I would use them again!

They did a great job with moving, it was a little harder to get ahold of them before the move than I would have liked, but overall I was incredibly happy. They were fantastic movers, and nice guys.

The two actual movers and individual I communicated with before the move were friendly and efficient. However, the supervisor that came with them was disrespectful and repeatedly mentioned that they should be charging more for their services. This supervisor complained about the moving space and items being moved the entire two hours. It was obvious there was a lot of miscommunication between the supervisor and individual who collected my information regarding my move. I would not recommend and will not be utilizing their services again.

I hired Faith and Family Moving Services in an emergency situation (Like 9 am on a Sunday and the original movers had canceled type emergency) She was professional and kind and in my frazzled state assured me "I will make this work for you today!" She wasn't wrong!!! Her team showed up ready to go, professional and in great spirit. They made short work of the items I had to be moved. She even had team members who came in on their day off to help make this move happen. I could have hugged each and every one of them for being so amazing and helping my move happen. I will recommend this company to anyone and everyone who needs a move going forward and will absolutely call on them again for my next move (which hopefully isn't for awhile though :) as we just moved in.) If you are looking for a company who goes above and beyond for you during a move for a great price, Definitely reach out to Faith and Family Moving Services!! You won't be disappointed!

Dan was a pleasure to hire. His crew hustled and were efficient throughout the move. I would recommend Harrington Moving LLC to anyone.

Both movers were very professional and efficient. They respected my time throughout the move, working diligently throughout the move. They were careful with all my possessions and even went the extra mile to help me move a heavy piece of furniture I didn't originally identify as needing help with. Their rates were the best I was quoted and appropriate for the work they did.

Jeff and John provided a great move in experience for me as they were on time and paid attention to detail. Prior to my move date, Jeff came out to my apartment to provide me with an estimate. During my move, they ensured that my items were handled with care.

I highly recommend using Harrington Moving! Dan was very responsive from our initial conversation regarding the quote. Our elevator was down on the day of the move, but Dan was able to reschedule us. Their time estimate/ quote was spot on. The movers handled every single item with care and did not waste any time. I’ve moved several times recently and this move was the smoothest transition. The best part about the company is that it isn’t a big company with a call center that sends random men to do the work. These guys actually care about getting your belongings to your new home safely.

Moved a 1 bedroom apartment. The two movers were on time, polite, and very easy to work with. I thought it would take 2 hours but it ended up taking 3 hours even with me and my sister helping. They didn't seem like the most experienced movers but the cost was decent and the job got done.

Rico & Anthony helped me move my one bedroom apartment on Friday. They were timely, quick and very polite. They made sure to put everything where I wanted it and had to move my couch in some tight corners on two second floor apartments. I would highly recommend working with Mount Up Moving Services and if you get Rico & Anthony, know that they will do a great job! Thanks for making my move a lot easier. :)

This was a great experience from start to finish. I had a small move and they were done quickly and professionally. Dan and Collin took the stress out of a cross town move. They are the best. Hire them if you can!

Jacob and his team of 3 guys were professional and pleasant. They moved all my things quickly even though they had to climb three flight of stairs to move 150+ boxes and furniture. They worked with good humor and efficiently. All my things arrived at their destination in good shape and nothing broke. I definitely recommend ASAP and I will use them again if I need to move another time.

The job was for moving less than 50 miles and included the truck and two movers. I can't express my gratitude enough for the professional way everything was handled.Thank you Jeff Burgess, you even impressed my boyfriend, which is extremely hard to do!

Overall I'm happy with the work they did in my home. I needed some strong guys to move furniture up and down steps. The main piece I wanted to move, my treadmill, they couldn't do because they didn't know how. In my opinion, in the original request, I did state I wanted it moved and if you're not sure how to disassemble a piece, you shouldn't really bid. However, they moved everything else without a scratch, worked fast, looked professional and I was glad they got done what I needed. I would use them again if I didn't have anything complex.

Excellent providers, came to our place early, ended just a bit early and were friendly the entire time. Showed more care moving our stuff than we would have if we did it ourselves. First time hiring movers and they convinced us it is the way to go every time! A+

Jeff and crew went above and beyond for our arduous move! Unloaded a small storage unit and the contents of our 22 ft moving truck (including 100 very heavy boxes of books) into second floor duplex. On time and professional. Great experience from initial Thumbtack posting to final Paypal payment.
