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.

After submitting my inventory, my order was confirmed for 4 movers to load & unload a 2800sqft home on 7/30/19. 2 movers arrived to load; a man & a woman! I called Bellhop & reached out via Thumbtack msg. They told me they were only able to provide 3 movers to load. I told them my email confirmations showed 4. I went around & around with their stellar (extremely sarcastic) customer svc. They accepted a 4 mover load, even though they didn't have 4 movers available, on they day I requested. Not only did I not get the amount of movers we needed, only 2 arrived on time. The movers had no dollies or moving assistant equipment! I guess they were planning on using pure back strength to move washer & dryers & a 2800sqft home?!? The got tired & helped themselves to one of the uhauls dollies...we had to pay for it..For the first hour & 45 minutes, we had 2 movers, so we ended up having to call in friends to help load one of the two 26ft Uhauls. The 3rd mover showed up an hour & 45 minutes late. Bellhop was unhelpful & kept saying they don't know what happened. I was told I'd receive a call back ..they never called. Now we're really in a bind, because we hired them to unload us also. We were closing on our old home, at 8am the next day & closing on our new home hours later. Bellhop was unreliable, so we had to pay another moving company; in case Bellhop movers decided not to show up. 4 movers did arrive on time for the unload from Bellhop. The other moving company, Best Man Movers, was scheduled to arrive 1 hour after Bellhop with 4 movers..they did. They finished their truck at the same time Bellhops movers did! Bellhops lead, Lori, took a TON of breaks & shouldn't have been considered the 4th mover. All in all, if I could rate Bellhops a zero, I would. Beware of this company, if you have time restraints & expect the movers to arrive on time, with the correct # of movers & with equipment to do the job safely & efficiently.

They called an hour before the move insisting on rescheduling. I had to call around and find another mover to get my job done on time.

Mover was 8 hours late arriving to move four items of furniture. The mover called once to notify us that he would be late and would arrive at 4 pm instead of 1 pm...they arrived at 9 pm. A small scratch was found on one piece of furniture that wasn't there previously. Would not use them again.

I had a evening move scheduled from a third floor apartment. I had some very heavy items including an adjustable bed frame, washer and dryer, as well as some heavy dressers and consoles. We started our move at 6 in the evening and even after a whole day of moving, they were very professional and had a great attitude. They were held up at a previous job and contacted me to let me know of the time change. They were very quick and efficient. I even had a console table that shifted in the move and they re-assembled the piece once it was unloaded. I would highly recommend them for your moving needs!

Serenity Movers just moved a truck full of heavy furniture from Edmond, OK to Coalgate, OK yesterday, for us. I couldn't be more satisfied with their services. They arrived promptly and stayed until the job was complete. Everything arrived without any scratches, and their strength in moving heavy objects amazed me. I would highly recommend their services.

Overall, had a good experience. Movers were courteous and knowledgeable and the rates were great. The only (semi) complaint was a 45 minute delay, then charged for an extra hour. Since the price was so affordable, I didn’t mind. I would recommend 405 Movers.

We had to quickly move from OKC to Texas for work and Levon and his team made that move very easy for us. From start to finish I couldn't have been happier making the choice to go with them for a big move. We hired Levon after searching the bigger companies and found his prices to be better and he was definitely more accommodating then any other company we spoke with. The day of the move they were very professional and efficient and had all of our stuff from the third story apartment wrapped and into the van in an hour and a half. Even though we arrived in Texas late that night Levon and Dan took the time to help us setup anything we needed help with. I would definitely hire them again for any move I make. You'll be very happy with their services.

My moving experience went very well with these movers. They’re kind and helpful. They work very hard and fast too. My only issue was them not arriving on time, which is hard for them to control unless you book first thing in the morning. They were very apologetic and took great care of me still. They made sure I only had to pay the minimum 3 hours too. I was very thankful to have them as my movers.
