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.

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.

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 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. 

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 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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

Reviews for Reynoldsburg movers

The movers were very professional. They moved my washer efficiently and quickly. I will use them again in the future.

The 2 movers that did my move were on time, actually a few minutes early. I had a 9:00 am move on a Sunday so that was impressive. They were friendly, efficient, and did the move safely too while being careful with my home and belongings. They worked diligently even though it rained the whole move both loading and unloading. They were soaking wet the whole time but they worked without complaint. I will definitely recommend this moving company to friends & family. The reviews I read before I chose this company were 100% true!

These gentlemen came up with a quote promptly, called me to set up the move of 3 large pieces of furniture to another location. The men showed up on time, pleasantly introduced themselves and moved the furniture. Island Express Movers were great!

We were frantic about moving across town with all our fragile stuff and antiques. Mr Clarice took excellent care of our needs and feelings, as we moved out of our "forever house" to move into another one. We give him and his crew the highest of positive recommendations!

I had a great experience with this moving company. I hired them to move me from Columbus to Cleveland, OH. While it was a bit pricey, they handled EVERYTHING from beginning to end, and they were the ONLY local company I could find to do the job. The only other company was twice as much, and couldn't do everything smooth movers did. I highly recommend.

It was a very good experience right from the quote through to the finished move. Our 3 movers were very careful and went above and beyond by putting storage items on shelves in the basement, and positioning the furniture where we wanted it.

I have no complaints, the two young men that showed up were on time, courteous, extremely helpful, and so motivated they turned a stressful move into a pleasant one with their positive attitudes. I don't plan on moving anytime soon but if I do I will use Bellhops again.

Excellent job by this crew moving a heavy item for me. Response was quick and professional. This is the only company that would do this small job without overcharging me. The guys were very nice and were in and out in 10 minutes. Highly recommend them if you need furniture moved in your house.

Movers arrived over an hour late. It was two guys in a U-Haul truck. They were given a tour of the rooms in which things were to be moved from, most of which was sitting on the main level, 8 feet from the door, prepped and ready to go. They said they would be right back to get started. They went to their truck and a few minutes later both the movers and the truck were gone without a word or explanation. Giving them the benefit of the doubt, we waited to see if they'd come back shortly. A while later, the contact from the company called, identifying himself as their manager. He reported that they didn't want to do the job, then offered his and a friend's personal moving services, but said he would only do it if we paid him more. We declined the offer, instead choosing to find alternate means of moving at the absolute last minute. If you are up against any sort of deadline, you might strongly consider whether you can afford to be stood up or pay more when over a barrel.

Most importantly, I would recommend Eko Movers to everyone. Not only did they bid lower than other companies, THEY WERE EFFICIENT. Being that you are charged by time Kendall and Jobe did not mess around and waste time. They were extremely friendly and took great care of the valuables they were moving. These guys do amazing work! I couldn't be happier with the experience that we had.
