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.

I secured Primetime Movers 3 days before the move which was a big stress reducer. They were the only mover in the area that returned my Saturday voice message right away. The move went smoothly. The movers were polite and made adjustment to furniture location as I wanted to move furniture around to decide on a good location. Thank you Primetime Movers Portland.

We moved recently and used Primetime Movers Portland. I called five different moving companies and while their prices were all pretty similar, the hourly rate at the other companies included two movers and with Primetime it included three movers. The quote for the amount of time was very accurate and the movers were clean, kind, and respectful of my home and belongings. Not one thing was broken or damaged in the move! They were the easiest part about moving and absolutely worth every penny

Had a seamless move with Primetime and Ed. I have never met such nice movers in my life. For two people, they worked so fast and safely packing and moving my two bedroom apartment. I would highly recommend and use Primetime movers again for any move throughout the city. Legit my first stress free move!

The move went about as well as possible. This is my second time moving in Portland over the last year. I didn't get to use Primetime for the first move, but glad I got them for the second. They kept positive attitudes despite the nasty rain. I will definitely use Primetime Movers again and recommend them to others in need of a moving company.

These movers are the best I've had in Portland, Oregon. I've done several moves for my family and my mom's home. They are efficient and professional from start to finish. Curtesy from the office staff to the movers. No hidden fees, everything was discussed and noted prior to move day. We had Trevor and Matt, as our movers and they were awesome! They wrapped, padded and secured everything well in the truck, moved quickly and wasted no time. I would definitely use Miracle Man Movers again and recommend them to my family and friends.

Primetime movers made my move about as painless as possible. Communicated well. Sent a confirmation email after booking the move, and called the morning on their way. I was a little surprised at how seamless the entire process was. Moving stresses me out, but not this time. Thank you!

We were impressed with Primetime Movers Portland. Our movers did a really good job. They were friendly, quick, and took care of our stuff. Customer service was also solid. Very responsive and tentative to my questions leading up to the move. The morning of the move we received a call with an ETA. The communication and moving experience could not have been better.

My wife and I could not have been happier with our moving experience. From the first phone call to the final piece of furniture was moved it was a great experience. After a couple of very bad moving experiences this was such a relief and amazing move. The two guys did an incredible job. They were very quick, careful and efficient with the whole move. They really knew what they were doing. My wife and I would definitely recommend Primetime Movers. Great job guys!!!

We had two separate moves with Primetime last week. We moved our two bed apartment, and later in the week moved our daughter form her current home. They were on time for both moves. We had two completely different crews for each move. What impressed me the both is how professional both crews were. We have had several moves in the last few years in Portland. This was by far the best one. I won't use anyone else from here on.

I found them to be reasonably priced and well mannered. As per the agreement, 4 movers arrived on time at 9:30 in the morning. The team was respectful and worse masks during the move. I couldn't be happier with the movers and the contract. It came in a little less then I was expecting. I highly recommend Primetime movers!

We moved from woodburn to tigard and decided to use Primetime movers based on the positive reviews. They were far more reasonable and their customer service wasn't pushy at any point during our conversations. I worked Kyle to set the move up and he was great. Very knowdlagble and gave us some good tips on being more prepared for the move. The movers were incredible as well. They worked hard and were professionally mannered over the 7 hours we had them. I can confidently say I am overly satisfied with this company and highly recommend Primetime movers to anyone looking to move.

I can't say enough about the excellent service I received from the crew at Supportive Services Moving. Our movers, Gerard and Jeremy were on-time, professional and hustled the entire move. Highly recommended.

I have used a lot of moving companies and Precision Relocation was one of the best in price as well as quality of the move overall. This may be my first move where there wasn't at least 1 thing broken or damaged.

Had a great experience with PT. They were very responsive to my inquiry and booking the move was smooth. The movers were quick and efficient. I had a big couch they had to move down a tight stairwell and they did it with care and no issues. I would definitely use this company again and the same movers. Thank you.

These guys get our vote! I've had to move twice in the span of three years and Primetime Movers have been the easiest to deal with. Amazing the entire way from setting up the move, to the move, to payment. All of our items were delivered in great shape. We will only be using Primetime from now on.
