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. 

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. 

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.

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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

David was great along with his partner. They were careful with handling the items moving out and moving in. They were right on time and completed the move on time. I would recommend them anytime.

Best experience I have ever had with movers. Arrived on time, they worked very fast, and very efficiently. They got finished so fast, that they moved some other items for us in the house. They were extremely careful with our furniture and other items. I would recommend Oregon Trail Moving Services to anyone wanting a professional group of movers, at a value price!

Move of 3-bedroom household goods. Robert was professional and serious about his work. There was a miscalculation of goods to be moved and an additional 10' truck was required. Robert was on schedule and all was delivered in great condition. I highly recommend Robert Roberson to help anyone with a move.

I had a last minute change to my move date. Todd and Randy changed the date without issue. My moving crew, Nettra & Larry were on time, professional and did great work. One of the best moving experiences I have ever had. Great Job.

Supportive Services helped us with a complex move from Gresham Oregon to Roseburg Oregon that involved packing and moving for our elderly mother, delivering items to a storage unit and also to her new apartment in assisted living. They did a wonderful job from start to finish, and were careful to pack the items on the truck and in the storage unit so that the most needed things were unpacked first, and then packed last into the storage unit. A move to assisted living is fraught enough as it is and I wasn't really thinking through the post-move logistics as carefully as they did - they not only made the move far better at a very reasonable price, but they also made the post-move experience far better. I heartily recommend them!

They delayed a day at 3pm the day before the move. Then the day of the move were 50 min later than the latest they were supposed to show. The 3 men that came were pleasant but never in much of a hurry - they stood around A LOT. Nothing like the movers we hired a few days earlier for my fiancé. I would not recommend.

Project went well, furniture moved and movers were very polite and helpful. They had to use a lot of muscle power to move heavy pieces of furniture, thought they would have straps to make it easier but whatever works! Good communication and made short work of the task. First time user of thumbtack and worked well to locate and hire help for this job.

Do not hesitate to use their services. I've moved 17 times in the past 25 years and NEVER have I had such great service. They are careful, prompt and do not waste any time. It can be a nightmare if your movers are slow and inexperienced. 503 Moving is spot on with all they do. They helped me from the minute they came in the door to get things loaded immediately. Time Saving! They were careful and knew how to load the truck without wasting any time. My move cost me less than any other move I made because they are efficient and professional. Highly recommend them. I will use them again for sure. Larry and Bob are the best!

The three movers were friendly, efficient, and careful. They did in five and a half hours what would have taken my girlfriend and I two to three days to do. They managed to get all of our furniture and boxes into one load, even when it was looking like it might not all fit. (We had a lot to move.) Nothing was broken or damaged. Each of them had a great sense of humor, and we had some fun conversations along the way. The rates were typical. I like that they offered three movers instead of two. This made very good use of the time. This company was the only one on Thumbtack that responded to my initial query by including the ODOT publication on hiring movers. This went a long way in establishing confidence in this company, as they were actively demonstrating their compliance with state regulations for moving. I would definitely hire PDX Premier College Movers again if the need arose.

Absolutely the best! Our movers (Trey, Jazz and Patrick) were friendly, and extremely efficient! They arrived on time and worked within our time budget. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing affordable moving services! My wife loves that this company also serves the most vulnerable in our communities.

The movers were an hour late, however, they did shave 45 min off our bill. They worked very fast loading our things but one of the movers had to leave and another took his place to unload. After that things really slowed down. The guys stood around and chit chatted then the new guy carried one thing at a time, prior to this they had been using a hand truck to move 3-4 boxes at a time. Todd, the owner, was very kind and easy to work with. And I would consider using them again because of the price, but maybe ask for different guys.

Larry was great to work with. We set a date for my moving project but I decided I wouldn't be ready so sent Larry a note. He was very flexible, which I really appreciated. Moving day went very well. Showed Larry and Ryan what I needed done and they carefully and quickly did everything that I asked. Very personable and professional. THANKS, Larry and Ryan!

The night before they were supposed to come out, it snowed and then there was freezing rain, so everything the next morning was super icy. They were supposed to come at 10:30, but I called and asked if they could come later at around 12:30 so that hopefully some ice could melt. They were very obliging. They got here 10 minutes early to make sure that they were on time, but it was still icy! They used a shovel and rake I had and broke up the ice so they could move my stuff. They were very patient. They made sure to look at everything that needed to be moved first so that they could figure out how best to load the truck, then went at it! I was worried it wouldn't all fit, but they got it done with quite a bit of room to spare! They made sure to tie the stuff off so that it wouldn't be moving back and forth every time I brake or accelerate. I would definitely recommend these movers.

The guys were super friendly, courteous and on time but I felt like they didn't have all the equipment to move is properly. No shrink wrap was applied to items with drawers and no bags for the mattresses.
