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.

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. 

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.

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.

I had a great experience with Aable Moving, who we hired to move a spinet piano. First, John was very responsive -- providing me with a quote very quickly and promptly answering/returning my calls. He and his crew showed up exactly in the window they estimated and moved our spinet piano efficiently and with no damage to our home or the piano. John is also very personable and great to work with. I highly recommend this moving company!

Answered all my questions, re-moved things I wanted to try in different places without hesitation, they were fast but careful, excellent communication between the 3 I had for my move to make sure everything was taken and arrived safely. As stressful as moving can be they made it much easier!!!

These movers were efficient, courteous, and very careful with handling all of our furniture and boxes. I really appreciated how attentive they were, asking me to check each room, more than once, to make sure they got everything I wanted moved. I highly recommend this moving company! They were excellent!

I realize that my review is quite late as I moved at the end of April 2016! I hired Eduardo to move me in Pawtucket, RI. Him and his assistant came as scheduled and moved me a few miles away to a new apartment in just a few hours. Definitely very professional, friendly and most of all, protective of my belongings! Yes, I would most definitely recommend H-Movers and would hire them again without question!

It took a few tries to schedule a moving time, as they wanted to schedule short term and I am not always immediately available for contact. Once we set a date they arrived on time and moved the piano with no problems.

The whole team did a great job from start to finish. The scheduling process was fast and easy and they were able to move me in less than a week on the specific day I requested. The day of the move the team was professional and personable. They also work efficiently as to not "milk the clock". I would definitely suggest H to anyone looking for help moving. The price was very good for the quality of work and service provided.

Overall very good. The two guys managed to move the furniture from our 1 bedroom apartment from Pawtucket - Providence in 2.5 hours. One of the guys did show up clearly tired but don't think it effected move time too much. Also wished they had wrapped furniture, especially mattress but no damage to anything so overall worked out great.

LUMY Moving was amazing! 5/5, I would HIGHLY recommend should anyone I know need movers. They texted when they were 30 min out and arrived well within their arrival window. 2 movers worked quickly and efficiently. They wrapped furniture to ensure it got to its destination safely, too. I cannot speak highly enough about these gentlemen! They weren’t the cheapest in my area, but they were absolutely worth the difference I paid. They were also super responsive when scheduling, getting an estimate, and when I asked questions. They also expertly fit me into a storage unit! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Super friendly and professional movers! They did an amazing job with really heavy pieces of furniture. It was a rainy day and they didn't complain once. Really helped make our move more manageable. They even had rug savers to avoid tracking mud through our new apartment. They were the cheapest so I was worried they wouldn't offer the best service, but they completely exceeded our expectations at a great price!

Very nice and hardworking people. No issues, respectable, and good pricing. Some furniture scratches but its kind of expected when spaces are tight. I recommend that you wrap your valued items if you want to be on the safe side. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to move.

They were absolutely wonderful. I would definitely hire them again if I ever happen to move again. They really made moving just a little less stressful and they were just so polite and friendly. I loved the fact that they called me ahead of time to tell me they were going to be late due to traffic instead of having me sitting there guessing when they would appear. They also had no problem with bringing my furniture out the window which I was very grateful for. They absolutely made my day when the brought my King size mattress up my small staircase when I thought it wouldn't be able to fit. They made it work and made me happy. Overall, they were awesome!

I have very narrow winding staircases up to a third floor apartment. The couch really shouldn't have made it up the stairs, but they stuck to it to make sure it did. Definitely the best value out there - I think anyone else would have both charged more and given up. Really sweet guys who showed up on time, were responsive, and were flexible with a last minute move.
