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.

These guys did a late notice move for me from PA to upstate NY on a holiday weekend. They arrived right when they were scheduled, did a good job wrapping and moving furniture without damages, and were very professional about getting the job done. Rates are also better than most movers in the area too with direct shipping. Most other quotes I received wanted to use a carrier and couldn't guarantee a ship date. Will use them again for my next move.

What a travesty. Only wanted to move locally, about 3 miles. They could not move me on the date I asked for which was no big deal. Yesterday by the way 9/11. They said that they would call me back with dates and the cost. It is now 9/12. I called a week and a half ago. Would never recommend them. Still need a mover however, but won't be them.

He and his helper came a little early, moved whatever items we asked him too, also threw a couch for us in the dumpster, put up with our craziness because some stuff we were taking, some we were throwing out and some we were moving so my daughter & I got a little anxious but Adam just smiled and moved items without a problem; very quick too; I would highly recommend.

Absolutely HORRIBLE. I caution anyone even thinking about working with A&A professional movers, to please read our experience and imagine yourself in this same position.  After reading only a few reviews, and feeling very rushed in our move, we spoke with the owner Adam and left a $250.00 deposit. After booking and receiving a confirmation email (as extra precaution as we had to be completely moved out by the end of the day) We again confirmed the night before via text. Adam responded, all was set for 9-10 am. No one showed. Around 11 am we started to panic as we then dug deeper into previous reviews. Some saying he never showed up at all! We began calling, texting, even emailing asking NOTHING more than for a response. As the director of a home health company in the middle of a global pandemic - I KNOW and truly respect and understand emergency’s DO happen. We simply NEEDED an answer to know if we needed to implement an emergency plan. At this time I still had faith in Adam and A&A Professional Movers, Surly they would not completely blow us off. Thats not how you run a business, and furthermore; that lack of work ethic is unfathomable to me. But by 3PM the day of the move, knowing we’d scheduled and paid a down payment for an anticipated 10 hour move, Adam and his team DID leave us completely stranded. No-Call/No-Show. Moving In and of itself is incredible stressful. I feel not sharing our story as a warning to others in this community planning for their move, I would not have a clear conscience myself. I wouldn’t want anyone to have to experience this nightmare. TURN AWAY NOW. Adam and A&A Professional Movers are unethical, unreliable and will leave you stranded.

These guys were the BEST service I could ever hope for! I contacted to schedule in the morning and they came out the SAME day to complete my move. The guys were respectful, efficient, and careful with all of my belongings! They wrapped all of my furniture and also disassembled many items for me and removed a tv from the wall for me without hesitation. They moved me from a very undesirable situation quickly and swiftly and I could not be more pleased with my experience. I recommend these guys for any and all of your moving needs! FIVE STARS are not enough to show how pleased I am with my experience!

TRM movers were amazing to work with and helped with the entire move from beginning to end. They were so kind and patient. Extremely professional and easy to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure our belongings fit into limited space, without them we would have had to sacrifice many items. Thank you guys for your professionalism and dedication to your customers!

Carlos got back to me quickly, was very communicative, polite, and clear, and fairly priced. The guys who came to move our furniture did a wonderful job -- in particular, they were very gentle with a huge and heavy antique piece of furniture that has a lot of sentimental value for us. I wasn't worried at all once I saw how much care they took in moving it. We would definitely call them again for future jobs.

James and Leonard moves my family about 15 miles between old and new houses. James was in contact with me several times to monitor our move date and time. He asked numerous questions to ensure he would have everything he needed when he arrived. They were careful and respectful of everything, and were efficient. While Leonard was waiting for James to arrive with the big truck, he even helped us empty our cars out until he arrived. Highly recommend!

They moved me. They were professional, friendly, and very efficient. They were done in less than 3 hrs. The only problem was they were a little late. Reggie kept in touch. I was only going to only 4 star them because of this but they made up the time miraculously!

Reggie and his team arrived when they said they would. They did the work quickly and efficiently. Reggie disassembled and assembled my furniture, and made sure everything was very well protected. They made the move seem very easy. I wasn't sure how this experience was going to turn out, but it was great. They put everything where it was supposed to go in my new place. They did a great job! Reggie and his team will not disappoint, hire them! I'll be utilizing their services in the future.

Kadeem was quick to schedule. But, he and his crew were 45 minutes late arriving at the home. Once there, the 3 men were disorganized in only having one roll off tape. Though heavy, there were 4 large pieces and a king bed to disassemble and load. The crew obviously never worked together before because it took them 2 1/2 hrs. Once at the destination, they got to work and made efforts to move a large armoire up steps. They tried valiantly but it was simply not possible. The issue was the amount of damage done to the walls and trim of the rental property. In the end, Kadeem agreed to knock off 1 hr of labor to compensate for the damage. But, his guys also left a bag of trash in the yard. Hence, my lowered rating.
