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.

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’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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Movers arrived on time. Movers messed up many of our belongings during the move. There is a large scratch in the living room floor where they scooted a recliner rather than picking it up. Both the home we moved from and the home we moved to have large black marks in the driveway from them moving the refrigerator, which now does not close properly. Our washer is all scratched up. Would not recommend.

We needed a mover last minute and they were amazing. The individuals who moved us were fast, professional, and so friendly. After a horrible moving experience with another company that left us hanging, this company came through and then some.

These guys are soooo nice and got my entire move done in exactly three hours. Robert is THE MAN! They were very behind on schedule that day, but that should be expected from a small local mover. I highly suggest Berry Movers unless you are on a strict, tight schedule.

The owner was not prepared. I talked to him the day before my move (which was booked 3 weeks in advance). He forgot that I told him it was an “upstairs” move. Took two trips, which could have been one, if they knew how to load a truck. Ruined my neighbors yard by pulling in wrong. Had to pay an extra hour of moving for stupidity. You could do better moving yourself.

Eddie and his team were amazing! They helped me move everything out of my old place and then helped load things into another vehicle at my new place and moved some furniture around at the new place as well! I will DEFINITELY be recommending them to my friend and family for all their moving needs!

I had two moving companies cancel on me the same day as the move and only 30 min before. I reached out to Berry movers and they showed up in two hours ready to go! The loading was much faster than I anticipated and we even able to add extra stuff to move in the end. The unload took longer but that is because there is construction going on at the new house. They were able to navigate the construction situation and still were able to finish within the 3-hour minimum. Be aware, you do have to pay for milage but it was so cheap we didn't even bat an eye. Overall best moving experience I have had. Lifesavers.

DO NOT HIRE!!! Terrible moving experience. Did a small move then a full house move. 1st one went ok but he was an hour late. Full house move was bad!! Suppose to be there at 9:0am. Then he moved it u til noon then back to 3:00 pm. He disappeared for 2 hours in the middle of the move. He said it was an hour. With a quick I’m sorry and came back with Little Caesar’s. My wood floors were scratched. The lead glass top for my coffee table went “missing”. They loaded it. I am sure they broke it but Brandon wouldn’t own up to it. Said the water was hooked up to the fridge it doesn’t work. Gonna have to look at that myself. Taking the fridge out from my old house they broke the pipe and I have a leak now. Found 2 drawers broken on a dresser this morning. Brandon is not honest or reliable. His 2 workers kept apologizing. Move went until after midnight due to his tardiness. So unprofessional. He took some off for the scratched and the table. Move should not have taken 9 hours with 4 guys. Altogether terrible experience.
