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.

For us, the move was a difficult situation. Nick and Kevin did everything they could to make the move painless. They worked around obstacles, stayed cheerful, and took good care of the furnishings and great care of the house at delivery. They were cooperative and helpful. I would use Serenity Moving Services again. The company is named after his daughter, by the way. I think they will keep their standards high. Nicholas is very knowledgeable about the logistics of moving pianos, and going up enclosed curving staircases.

The guys were prompt and efficient. They moved three households in a day and a half. They were courteous and asked where we wanted things placed and verified that it was okay before moving on. Our second day, they had mechanical problems with their truck, but called to let us know about the delay and when they would arrive. Would I use Serenity Moving Services again? Most definitely!!!!

These movers were over two hours late from the scheduled time they were supposed to be there, and when I asked were they still coming they told me the original individuals that was supposed to come to my move went to someone else and they did not want them to leave. We ended up moving majority of the items ourselves and they finally showed up almost 3 hours later and helped with a few big items. The guys that came were super nice, but I was already upset because I had waited on them all morning and we had to move the things ourselves.

These young men were great, on time, courteous, experienced, and hard working. They went beyond what was expected and took the worry out of my move. I recommend hiring this company if you want fast, considerate, hard working movers at a reasonable rate.

Rick and his assistant Jonathan were tremendous in their speed, strength and general demeanor. I have never experienced a move that went as smoothly and effortlessly. I would recommend Rick for any job, move or anything else you can’t take care of yourself.

Serenity did a great job with my move. The two guys who did the move were very professional and took care of my furniture. They were also checked to make sure they had placed all of the items in the correct place before leaving. They were up front with pricing and I was happy to not have to be surprised with the final bill. Nick answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend Serenity to everyone and would use them again.

We hired Serenity to load our moving truck for us. They fit an impressive amount of boxes and furniture in our truck with minimal damage (definitely not any more than had we done it ourselves). They worked quickly and efficiently.

I can't not say enough great things about the guys who helped me. (Sorry, I am bad with names) They arrived early and got to work right away. They really put my mind at ease with the move it was something I was dreading. I have never personally hired movers and have always grabbed my buddies and family members and I will never again. The process was seriously quick and painless. And the guys were nothing but professional and courteous. Also, I would like to add that I put my request late Sunday and received a response almost immediately and was able to get them to come out on Tuesday. Thank you so much
