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.

Reviews for Eugene movers

I hired Cherish Moving company to help me move from Eugene, OR to Los Angeles, CA. My experience was more than positive. Emily was a huge help coordinating the move, provided a detailed quote, and was able to work with me and my tight moving schedule. Sergio and his crew were very professional, detail oriented, and very cautious with my things. Everything arrived in Los Angeles in excellent condition, and they delivered my things a day ahead of schedule! I highly recommend Cherish Moving LLC for your next move. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent job! I would recommend NW Piano Gallery with Don for any piano move. Ours was a difficult move with many stairs. Don and his associates did an amazing job - very efficient and knowledgable about moving pianos.

Our experience with Pro1Movers was AMAZING. I have had bad moves in the past and was nervous due to a few negative reviews. We tried to start our move day as prepared as possible, and everything went perfect! The movers came a little later than scheduled, but had confirmed earlier in the day, so we weren't nervous. They moved everything onto the truck without issue and arrived at our new residence shortly after we did. The two movers were polite and friendly and moved all our belongings using a freight elevator without incident. The price was exactly as quoted, which was well below any other quotes we had seen. Great experience! Will definitely recommend.

I researched this company for my daughter who was moving from Oregon to Washington. She went with Cherish Moving and was very happy with them. Nothing was broken upon arrival and the same two men that packed her up were the same ones who unpacked her. The price just can't be beat!

They were very careful moving furniture and loading and unloading the truck. They obviously have a great deal of experience in loading a truck. They also were fast. I will certainly use them again.

I had a great experience with your company and crew. We had our heavy exercise equipment moved upstairs and a piece downstairs. Your mean we’re on time and in communication which was really nice. I really appreciated the price quote with no up charges.

Overall, we received efficient and affordable service from Cherish Moving LLC. Goods were delivered at our convenience. They are a bit dusty though, so pack carefully. Pick-up and drop-off were smooth. Customer service was pleasant, too. Emily was very helpful throughout contracting and billing processes.

Booked for a date. They called back later saying date was double booked and had to reschedule. On date of move, crew showed up 4 hours outside of window which meant delivery was not possible that same day. Workers were nice and worked with decent pace. Damages were minimal and price was good. Would not recommend or use again

I was having a rough time deciding what to do with my things left in my dorm room. I still hadn’t packed anything and was out of the country. The movers are wonderful, they sent me an update with pictures every few minutes and clarified on how I wanted everything to be packed. I would recommend 110%. I cannot thank them enough!

They moved two heavy fireproof filing cabinets for us, one of which had to go up a staircase to the 2nd floor, and got the job done fast, just as we asked! Very friendly and professional and gave us a good price! While here, they even gave us great bid on some future tree work they could do for us! I'd definitely give them a call again!
