Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Crew showed up on time, was courteous, moved the furniture and household goods quickly and did a great job packing, protecting my items. On load on the other end was equally well executed. All was accomplished within their estimate and timeline. Will hire these folks again for my next move.

Chris and team did a great job with our move. they were very careful with all of my furniture. I had to change my move in date suddenly and they went above and beyond to work on their day off! Great group and will use them again, if needed. They were fast, quick and on time!! Thank you!!

I cannot say enough good things about Chris and his crew. They moved an entire house of extremely heavy furniture up stairs, and to the basement, disassembled and reassembled without a a scratch. Their prices can't be beat. I am a pretty hard sell, but this company exceeded my expectations! Moving is stressful enough, they made it an excellent experience!

Moving is generally horrible, but if you want a smooth experience go with Great Nation Movers! I researched TONS of different companies and even got multiple quotes - this one was the most professional, provided both an in-home long distant estimate, is licensed/insured and had all the equipment needed! It's a professional service and even offers packing supplies beforehand if you need (which we, I highly, suggest). Excellent packers!!! We moved from Harrisburg, Pa to D.C and this was pack and load, and delivery next day. We had two 26 foot trucks full! And of course, the best part - the gentlemen that provided our moving services were super professional, polite, and unbelievably hard and fast working. They did such an awesome job. Not a single scratch on anything. If you feel like you need to do a ton of research and get multiple quotes, I understand. BUT -- consider saving your time, because I did it for you, and this IS the best moving company in DC. Call them and schedule already!!!

Bob was excellent to work with! He was honest and upfront with cost, responded quickly to communication and gave no bull. He arrived on time and got everything done timely with his team. He took good care of my piano moving it, and spent a lot of care and attention to stretching the strings and tuning. If you need someone affordable to move your piano, don’t hesitate to call Bob!

Angie and her crew were amazing! They’re very efficient while being careful with handling everything from boxes to every piece of furniture. They are very pleasant people and genuinely care about their work quality! They have my highest recommendation. If I ever need anything moved, Angie will be my first call!

David and his crew were professional, polite, and extremely efficient. The day of the move had me driving across 5 states to get to Pennsylvania, so naturally I was stressed. They calmly and efficiently did my entire job in under 90 minutes, which gave me the rest of my day to unpack. They also tightned up a loose screw and put my mattress and box spring on its foundation (without me asking), which was a very nice touch. Would recommend this company to anyone.
