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.

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’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. 

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 you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Thanks a ton for your help guys! Did a great job moving me, very professional and hard-working - they never stopped moving. Would definitely recommend them.

Moved with them last week and everything went great! From getting a quote, to confirming the appointment to checking in the day before- they responded very promptly. They were exactly on time, and came in and made a plan to organize the truck and plan out the move. Ricardo and Jay worked so hard on a humid day and the whole move went so smoothly. I recommended them to my friends who are moving too- would definitely use them again!

This is the 2nd time I’ve used Elite. They were very good, on time, and took very good care in wrapping and moving our furniture. I would highly recommend them for a move.

Tim and Chris were very good movers. They wrapped all furniture to be moved. They even tightened our dining room furniture legs on our buffet and china cabinet. I highly recommend using Elite again. Elite pricing was very reasonable.. Again, you won’t go wrong using this company.

Actual movers were fantastic on both ends of the move. We had a lot of stuff, and only one item was broken at the end of the day. Our only problem was scheduling-- there was a communication hole between our estimator and the dispatch office-- but it all got sorted out and we received all of our items when we had planned on them.

Very professional, courteous, punctual, and took care of each piece of furniture & boxes. They even made sure not to damage any walls at the place I left and where I moved to.

Couldn't have been better. In the past we have hired a major mover - never again. Saying that Elite Moving did a much better job is an understatement. You want a company that knows what they are doing and treats your things the way they would want their belongings treated. Not just get it done as fast as possible which means damage. O U T S T A N D I N G and will hire again.

A++!!! Extremely responsive, professional, and most of all they move furniture well. Fast but very cautious too. You can tell they know what they are doing. I would highly recommend them for anything from a 3 hour to multiple day move. I got a quote from a different company for 4-6 hours and these guys got it done in 2! Do not be afraid of their slightly higher hourly prices - they are actually the cheapest because they are so efficient!

The move was good. Had a little issue with price but was worth not having to do it ourselves. I am unhappy that I requested a receipt, 6 days ago which makes me wonder and discovered scratches to my dresser with no response to either request.

4 hours late. They called said they were “running behind … first customer required more time then they planned” I had no idea “late” meant 4 hours. Due to arrive at 10. I confirmed day before. Showed up at 2. When they were on the way they called to see if I had everything broken down. In the convo photo you can see I requested that a few things would need taken apart. They then told me they had no tools. I had to then get a neighbor to help get stuff apart. Finally, at the end… for 2 guys and 3.5 hours of work they billed me 655.00. If you look at the quote they gave me it was 290 + 85 each additional hour. They gave me an invoice that includes miles stairs etc. NONE of that was mentioned previously! It was to be a flat fee. You can see they added a fight of stairs but I had informed them at the start there were stairs. There wasn’t enough room in the truck. Men were exhausted and tired from earlier move. Late. Over charged.
