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.

The movers were great - personable, polite, professional, and very areful. I couldn't have asked for an easier move! We even treated them to a local treat and they were so grateful. I hope I don't need to move again anytime soon but when I do I will definitely call Integrity.

The bad: I was a little upset that they showed-up two hours late. I had to move my other appointment later in the day to accomodate them plus I did not even get an apology. They are also slower than other movers who I have hired in the past so that adds up the cost. Just to be honest, I have had movers showed-up with two men that did the work in shorter time. The good: They are really polite and are extremely careful when moving things around so not to damage any items. Also I have some special requests that they gladly obliged with no issues. All in, the move turned out great aside from the few minor mishaps.

Moved two of my daughters out of the family home into their new house 50 miles away. Both movers sent were friendly and hard working to make this transition easier. Would definately use EcoMovers again. In fact I would ONLY use EcoMovers. The company and the individuals sent did an excellent job!

Whomever is responsible for the business did my movers a disservice and is responsible for this bad review. First, they came with a small truck that necessary meant they had to make 2 trips (being paid by the hour) likely in an endorsement to pad my bill. I fully spelled out EVERYTHING being moved beforehand. Second, the movers left items at the house that were clearly identified as TO BE MOVED. Third, the driver ATTEMPTED to quote a cost double the pre-arranged cost. Upon contestation, driver still padded the bill by making me pay for truck (AT NO POINT WAS I TOLD THAT WAS MY RESPONSIBILITY). Nevertheless, a 2 hour job took 3 hours and 11 minutes. They tried to bill me $600 (80/hr PER PERSON plus van costs). I rsusyed of course. My $240 bill was then "requoted" to $318 ("sales tax " on labor ...what a racket). Since I assumed they were being DIRECTED by this company's owner to TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE of folk, and not acting autonomously, I gave the 300 (a $60 tip) in spite of A MOST FRUSTRATING move.

I moved from south Florida to Ohio last August, a move that cost me over $3200. I state this because I had to move again for work, this time from Springfield, OH to Indianapolis, IN. I searched out many companies and was shocked to get quotes for a 132 mile move between $2200 and $4000!! Until I found Dennis Cox and his team at You Move Me. I got a significantly lower quote and figured, after looking through some of their reviews, that I'd take a chance. Aside from accepting the new job this was the best decision that I have made in a long time. I booked the move for Monday at 9am and Mr. Cox said that they would call when they were 30 minutes away. They did, and showed up nearly 10 minutes earlier than scheduled. That was just the beginning. Mr. Cox left me in the hands of his team consisting of Dennis Jr., Darius and Case....three young men who have been taught the right way to work with customers. As I was fully packed, it only took these gentlemen only one hour to wrap all my furniture and load a 2 bedroom apartment into their truck. That's FAST! They were very careful to not cause any damage to either my belongings or the apartment. Upon arriving at my new home in Indy, they unloaded just as quickly, making sure that all the boxes went into the rooms I designated and the furniture was unwrapped and placed where I wanted it. Absolutely FANTASTIC!! If you have a move coming up, do youself a favor and hire these people. They live up to their word and don't waste any time in making your move smooth and seamless. Well worth it!

I can’t say enough about this crew! Very respectful of myself and our things. We had our big items moved and I expect it would take much longer, but from start to finish was 2 hours! I feel very blessed and would use them again and recommend their services to anyone! The cost to move was very fair and the company exceeded my expectations!

These gentlemen are very hardworking, courteous and patient. They moved my mother and into a senior apartment and I could not have asked for better movers. I also need to add they were sensitive to the situation and made sure my mother knew where things were placed and made sure she could maneuver without fall hazards. I offer my full endorsement to H.E.L.P.! Thank all of you!!!

Worst experience ever!!! This is the first time I've ever used movers when relocating. It was scheduled for 10:30am, but the movers did not show up until 11:45am. The main guy showed up wearing open-toed sandals, and was rude and pushy toward the other two guys doing the actual work and he kept rushing them. They were done moving my stuff into storage by 1:45pm and I was charged a total of $500 for 2 hours of work. Oh, not to mention, my entertainment center was completely destroyed, which I was not compensated for. It would have probably been better just to pay the younger two guys out of pocket. Definitely NOT RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

Eko movers got back to me within minutes of being on the sight. And let me know what their rating on Angie's list was. The guys were super nice and helpful and had a competitive quote ready for me.

I rate this a 4 simply because I was so nervous the whole time the TWO men were moving the piano out of the house. First they just man-lifted it to the front porch where they put it on a dolly, and then a larger dolly before thumping it down the concrete steps, rolling it down the alley, and loading it onto their moving truck. However, they obviously knew what they were doing, because I was the only one who was nervous -- having moved pianos myself, I didn't consider this a two man job. My husband was impressed at the delivery end as they had to remove the legs and upend the piano to get it up the narrow concrete entry stairs, and around two corners into the music room. They were able to come the very next day. They were very professional, they notified me that they could come earlier if that was more convenient, and they notified me when they arrived. My nerves were the only problem.

This company is awesome! I got a quick response to my request to help us move. Bailey answered all my questions as we set up exactly what I needed and offered additional advice that I didn't know I needed. Dustin and Joey did a great job of loading the truck, padding furniture, and carefully arranging items so they would not be damaged. The unloading process went just as smooth. They didn't stop until the job was done and I was completely satisfied. 5 Star Moving was a God send and I would highly recommend them to anyone! Thank you Bailey, Dustin and Joey - you are all a true blessing! Alana
