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.

Reviews for Norristown movers
Lacey F.
My previous experiences with movers was not very positive. I was pleased to have a much better experience with George. He was great with answering emails leading up to the moving day and communicated thoroughly on the actual moving day. He even offered to move some extra boxes that I didn’t originally include in the moving estimate, which saved me a lot of time and energy from moving it myself.

This moving company is excellent! They were professional, accommodating, careful and finished moving everything in record time! I had a large commercial grade elliptical that they had to move into a basement which was not an easy task, but they seemed to be able to do this without difficulty. If I ever need to move again I will be using them and highly recommend them to others.

Dave and his assistant provided me with a last minute small moving service. They were professional, on time and reasonably priced especially given the distance of the move. I would definitely use their services again!

Extremely fair pricing. The scheduler (and I) estimated that the job would take far less time than it actually did (4 hrs vs. 9 hrs!) and had booked my moving crew for another job later in the day. I had more boxes than expected and several large furniture pieces that had to be unassembled and re-assembled taking more time than I realized. But he sent over a 3rd guy at no extra charge and got the job done. Ebineser, the head of the moving crew, did a fantastic job in a difficult situation. He made sure things were done right even though he was being rushed and still went to the 2nd job after 9 hours of moving me! I highly recommend "I Like To Move It Move It" movers.

I would leave 6 stars if I could! I highly recommend. Lanre is an outstanding project manager, his customer service skills are top notch and he even drove the moving truck! He does it all! His pricing model is very fair and easy to understand. There were no hidden or unexpected charges, everything is listed line by line on the estimate and invoice. Being this is the first time I’ve ever used a moving service I had some questions. Lanre scheduled a time for a call and afterwards I was confident I not only did the right thing by hiring movers, but definitely by hiring On-Demand movers. His crew were all professionals, thorough, plus work well and fast as a team. My move was a challenging one because we had to stop at 2 places, a condo and a storage unit, but they were able to fit and arrange everything on the truck so that it was easily and quickly unloaded. I’m glad I used them for my move, you will be too.

We needed a spinette style piano moved from one house to another over 50 miles away. Kingdom Movers came in with the best price from 4 total replies. Their service was professional, as well as personable. They treated our piano with the care that we would have, but with the skill that we do not have.

Although punctual, the haste to complete the move caused damage to my walls, doorframe and my sofa. The use of tape to secure drawers caused damage where used. Drawers should have been removed. Nice enough guys but the length of the move seemed to cause a rush that ended with less than optimal results.

Outstanding company!! Their crew of 3 were hard working, polite and the most patient group I've ever worked with in my 30+ years of moving. They made a very difficult move possible thanks to their tireless 16 hour shift. I have one happy client. Also, a special thank you to the owner of the company for excellent customer service. - Tony C. , Realtor @ Berkshire Hathaway

I was working late and had hired Aaron to move an elliptical from my second floor to my third floor. I personally didn’t get to meet him, but my boyfriend oversaw the work. He had only great things to say! Aaron was friendly, on time, polite, and got the job done in about ten minutes. Would highly recommend and will be using him again in the future for any moving needs!

All around excellent experience. I think we underestimated how long it would take to move me but the guys were so helpful, thoughtful, through, and wouldn’t leave until the job was done. l’m a single mom, moving without any other help and battling a cold, these guys made it a more than bearable situation! I was happy to pay for the extra time! They were worth every penny!

I was quoted 360 dollars so I decided to go with the mover. They showed up an hour late. The final bill came up to 598. I was told that "that the price went up because, you had more things that we had imagined" even though i had given them a breakdown of what I had. There is also a 3% credit card fee. I would say It was a below average move. Not impressed.
