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. 

Reviews for Providence piano movers

I had such a hard time finding a legit piano mover in RI. Somehow all legit piano movers I could find are based in other States and wouldn't move pianos from and to Rhode Island. In fact I was forced to hire a regular mover because of this and had a traumatic experience watching them moving my baby grand from my previous apartment to the storage. The regular mover sweared they move grand pianos all the time but they clearly didn't know what they're doing!! I almost had anxiety attack watching them work, not only for the fate of my piano but also for the movers' back- they could have hurt themselves!! So I was so grateful when Omar responded on thumbtack when it's time to move my baby grand from the storage to my new apartment, both in Rhode Island. He was the only piano mover who responded, the others were all regular movers who claimed they knew how to move grand pianos! I still wasn't sure at first because none of my pianist friends in Boston had used them before. But not only Omar gave a lower rate than the other piano movers, but he knows exactly what to do in all situation and they did their job very well and very efficiently. The previous mover that moved my piano to the storage did so many dumb things and made the job more challenging for Omar when he reassembled my piano at my new apartment (there was even one screw missing!!!), but Omar didn't complain, he just replaced the missing screw and didn't even charge me extra. Thank God Omar knows the pianos very well. I'm so glad and grateful he responded to my request on thumbtack. I definitely will hire All pro piano mover again next time I move!!

Omar and Kenny were freakin amazing. Originally we thought we were going to have to crane our piano into our unit like every other mover was saying. Those other guys weren't piano movers. Omar and Kenny are. They knew how to maneuver the piano and what parts to take care of. They took a look at our stairs, evaluated and measured the area and said let's try it. And they did it. My wife literally cried tears of joy after having them move the piano into our unit because we were getting such terrible help from other people. Omar and Kenny were professional throughout the entire move and they literally squeezed us in at the last minute as well. When we move next, we are going to be using them again.

These guys were super responsive and worked around some tough schedule conflicts to get here. The job was done professionally at about 1/3 the cost of the next lowest piano moving professional bid (and given how some of the non-piano folks talked about the move, I'd rather have people experienced with this kind of item doing it). If we move our little stand-up again, we'll probably trust All-Pro for logistics.

These dudes nailed it. They waited for my late arrival almost an hour and 45 minutes and were totally cool about it. (My apologies again) moved a baby grand down 25 steps with two 90 degree corners. The other tenant in the Mill was finishing the floors so there was a strong chemical smell making it terribly hard to breathe, yet these beasts continued to get the job done no complaints. For a couple minutes the entry way door was blocked, while prepping the ramp to bring the piano to the truck. one of the employees helped an elderly couple through the doorway and even carried their belongings for them since it was a tight squeeze. All I can say is that these are the guys you want. Very polite. Good conversation. Thanks again dudes.

My husband purchased a piano on a holiday and we needed someone to move it from the store to our home within 24 hours since the store would only hold it that long. The next morning I called and spoke to Melissa, who told me they were booked for the day. I told her about the store policy and she was very understanding. She immediately said she would make some calls to see if she could help us. She called back a little while later and set up the appointment for mid afternoon! Melissa went above and beyond to make this happen for us and she was very understanding, helpful and courteous. Her customer service was exemplary and I would HIGHLY recommend your company! Thanks again for helping us out in a pinch today! It was very much appreciated! 9:27 PM
