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.

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.

I scheduled to move with them but they never showed up. When I called them it took them half an hour to figure out that they couldn't get down either of the streets where I was moving. They probably should have told me that before I scheduled the move and they took my money.

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.
