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.

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 Hillsboro movers
Lori B.
Very disappointed in the time it took for them to move things. The movers even said they are in school and they move people when needed. If you don’t want to waste your money taking all day to move look elsewhere. Very unfortunate.

PDX Premier College Movers were great! Getting an estimate was quick and easy and they asked all the relevant questions that made my move go smoothly. The movers were courteous, professional and treated my belongings with care. I will use them again the next time I move.

What a great moving experience!!! Larry had the best communication and followed up with a moving quote, and checking in days before the move. You are never left quessing what will happen with 503 movers. The movers arrived on time and ready to work. We were moving our entire home including garage contents. It was more than even we expected, but Bob and his crew worked hard and were so organized with how to pack and breaking down bigger items carefully. I've moved a few times and never have we had such quality service. The speed and quality of work would lead you to believe it would be a big final bill. They are priced well and no hidden costs or fees. I would highly recommend 503 Movers to family, friends ans co-workers. They are the best!!

Hired Miracle Movers after realizing just how much work it would be to move into my 3 story townhouse. They were able to book me with only 2 days notice! Both Jake and Robyn were very professional and went above and beyond to help me with my move. I would definitely recommend Miracle Movers to anyone in the future!

I read about many Movers and Packers and had lots of confusion. My friends’ experiences were not good with some Movers. Then after lots of research i contacted Moving with ease. Everything was perfect with Moving with ease. Timely load and unload. My stuffs were delivered one day in advance and in perfect condition. The price was very reasonable and Robert was very friendly and easily approachable. Would highly recommend to others.

These guys did a great job with the move, and at such a reasonable price! Previous movers we've had have been more expensive, and broken some of our things. Not these guys!

I’ve moved sooooo many times in my life and I have never used movers. I decided this time to splurge and hire someone else to move my stuff. These guys are AMAZING! Very easy going, super efficient, literally running to make sure they met their time frame. They wrapped stuff for safe moving that I didn’t even think about protecting. I couldn’t be more impressed, or happy with my decision to hire less stress moving. I will absolutely be recommending them to family and friends, and I will be using them again in the future! Soooooo beyond impressed. Thanks guys!!

This was a big move for us in that we didn't have much time to prep and never realized how much stuff we had accumulated over the years. The 2 movers were professional and courteous. We will hire them again for our next move! Also the owners were quick to respond with answers thru website and phone calls.

The movers were at my house 15 minutes before the scheduled time. They finished the move as quickly as they could and kept me within the 3 hour minimum window. I'm extremely satisfied with their service.

Eric and Kyle were absolutely amazing in moving my one bedroom apartment. They had all the right equipments and a big truck. They dis-assembled my furniture and then moved it to the truck. They also handled my rather large musical instruments very well by packaging them. Will certainly hire them again for my next move.

I would definitely recommend PDX Premier College Movers to anyone that is in need of a moving company. My husband was a little worried when I told him they were college students but when he saw how efficient and professional they were his mind was at rest. They did a fantastic job with a great price! John, one of the movers gave me great advice about how to transport fish. If anyone is looking for a company to move their belongings look no further, this is the company to go with! Cathy and Bob

The job is to move my 2 bedroom apt to the other townhome. The truck came in half an hour late because U-haul opened very late on Sundays. Katie contacted me and kept me informed of the progress. Brent answered emails very quickly. It sounds he is always online. The two guys who moved the home for me did an excellent job. They are fast and professional. They knew what should be moved first and what should be moved later. I would hire them again next time.

Totally unprofessional. His truck broke down and my move was delayed by 3 days. He showed up to move my things without a screw driver or a packing tape. Took a uhaul truck to store my stuff temporarily using my credit card and was not honest about the charges or he gave any receipt. The move was nightmare for me with constantly following up and the additional delay costed me a lot financially and emotionally. He is a good man, but i dont think he is good mover.
