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.

I went with this so-called moving company based on the other glowing reviews. Boy, were we deceived!! We requested 3 movers and only 2 showed up, 30 minutes late. They rented a U-Haul truck instead of bringing their own. The U-Haul's battery died after all of our stuff was on it, which caused a delay and hassle to get it jump started. The movers themselves were very slow, completely careless and very unprofessional. I caught both Jacob and his assistant standing around and texting on their cell phones or just plain goofing off on more than one occasion. His assistant even had the nerve to grab a few of my hand weights and do curls right on the moving truck! Several of our valued possessions were damaged beyond repair, including my bedroom set, a lamp, my wife's filing cabinet, a very expensive desk and my wife's treasured Amish hand made dining room table was also chipped! Drywall and molding was badly nicked and in some cases completely torn up at BOTH my old and new place, requiring extensive repair and paint. All we were offered for these damages was 1 hour of labor. It will cost us more than the entire move to have everything fixed!!! We could have probably done better with 2 bums off the street!!! I highly discourage anyone from using these movers. Jacob and his crew should be ashamed of themselves! It's completely ruined the joy of moving into our new home :-(

I had a small job of moving a heavy bedroom furniture set from my garage to my upstairs bedroom. I wasn't sure 2 men could do the job but Jacob and his partner moved everything. They also put the bed together for me and rearranged the furniture when my initial plan for placement didn't work. I would definitely hire these guys again in a heartbeat! Thanks fellas!

Jacob and Phil with ASAP Moving helped us get out of our apartment and into our new house. They did a great job, finished on time and within budget. I was very glad not to have to do the heavy lifting. I would highly recommend.

Alex and his team really impressed me. My wife and I were concerned the pod we got would be a little too small for our things but they made it all fit with some room left! I highly recommend ACT 1 for your moving needs, not only are they reasonably priced, they also work efficiently with professionalism

They were punctual,professional, friendly courteous, and explained every detail before starting with boxes and storage containers. Ray was very careful with my curio cabinet even though I neglected to see a loose piece of glass inside, and was fussing to show me, but no damage to the door glass or cabinet as it was shrink & bubble-wrapped, it was my fault. Everything went smoothly. AND they had to navigate 3 flights of stairs and did it all with a smile! (although those stairs were energy-killers at the end). Thankfully the house I moved into had NO STAIRS. Would definitely recommend MOUNT-UP, no extra hidden charges or "surprises". Thanks guys, and Desiree too!
