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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for York movers

Did the move professionally, on time and for the right price unlike professional piano movers.

I had to follow up with Van Lewis to confirm the move, then my move had to be rescheduled by them the night before our scheduled move due to a conflict. Overall, nothing to complain about besides just not over the top customer service. They were efficient during the move though! The whole process was quick.

The actual movers were great, very nice and efficient. The owner of the company was difficult to work with. At 11pm the night before the move he tried to change the moving plans. He did not respond until I had called and texted many times to find out what was going on. Paid too much for easy move.

Excellent experience. We have moved cross country several times and know the deal. These folks moved us more quickly by half than others, and packed everything extraordinarily well. It is seldom with a move that you can say it went better than your wildest expectations....but that was the case. These reviews are for real. Best move ever...

They require an up front deposit BEFORE they even arrive at the place of move (a reservation), for an in-state move which as I understand from reputable movers is illegal. If I did not give him a reservation deposit, he refused to show up.

I found this company to be excellent. In the last 6 months I’ve had to hire a few movers and they’ve been the best . From Josephine in the office To the 4 young men that came to move me. They made this overwhelming project of moving not stressful. They’re economical and they won’t try to overcharge the. I would recommend this company everyday all day long. Don’t plan to move again. But if I had to I would use them again. Thanks Moyers movers. They’re professional in every sense of the word. I could go on and on. I also had no incidents. I have a lot of fragile and delicate furniture and they were delivered intact.

Manageable Moving was very prompt to respond to my inquiry. I was able to schedule my move in a matter of days. Got the job done in exactly the time frame quoted! Roger also helped us out with a drawer that needed a little repair. He fixed right up for us. I will definitely call him if I need to move again.

They were on-time, well prepared, highly professional, polite, and hard-working. They worked non-stop to make sure that my move went smoothly, even when that meant they were going above and beyond what I would expect from a traditional moving company. I will use this company for my future moves, and recommend you do as well!

The team was very courteous, prompt, efficient, and took great care while handling/moving the large and heavy furniture down our stairs. I'd recommend them to friends, family, or anyone in need of a reliable and trustworthy moving company. I didn't feel stressed at all, during past moves, I would worry the entire time but that quickly faded this time. The guys were great!

Tony, Marshall and Matthew were excellent. They were on time and well prepared. My move day was the hottest day of the year and they worked steadily even though they had multiple elevators to contend with at both locations. Their pleasant attitudes helped make a stressful time almost fun - well moving day is never fun - but these guys were great. I highly recommend Moving Made Awesome. Thank you!

I had to get my large items moved from my apartment like couches, beds, dinning room table, benches, tv's dressers, entertainment centers, coffee table, and end table on a strict time frame of only being able to move between 9-5 M- F and 10-2 on Saturdays. Moving Made Awesome showed up this morning 20 minutes early and took pride and care in their job and with my items. They went above and beyond with their services and even moved a few small item boxes for me as well since there was still more room in there truck. They put my items into a storage unit and took the extra step to make sure when unloading my items into storage to keep my bed free and clear of my other items so I could get to it to move out in a week or so without having to move my other items. The job took almost 3 hours and what I was quoted was what I paid. There was NO hidden fees or charges. I will DEFINITELY recommend this moving company to my family, friends, and anyone looking for a moving company. Thank you for great service and an amazing job. Your team is very professional. Thank you- Stephanie Rishell
