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.

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.

I had to move on very short notice and am SO glad that I found Pack It Up Moving!!! I researched and booked the company 2 days before my move and could not have been happier with the customer service and moving service that was provided. Tori was so kind and periodically checked in on the status of the move to ensure everything was meeting my standards. And the movers were fantastic-- very hardworking, friendly men with positive attitudes. -- I could not be happier and I think it's safe to say I've found our life-long moving company!

Very professional and on time coming to look at what furniture needed to be moved. Estimate dependent on time and furniture moved which is better than just one price for all. Looking forward to the move soon!

All Out Moving and Cleaning got us moved out of our apartment quickly and carefully. We moved from SC to KY, so we were worried about our stuff making it safely, but Corey packed everything in perfectly. Our stuff barely moved in the truck, even though we had a 7 hour drive with some of that drive being through the mountains. We would recommend All Out Moving and Cleaning to anyone!

The owner responds to messages quickly. They arrived a bit late, but the movers did a fantastic job with our move. They even patched up the walls for us and removed our mounted TVs from the walls. I would highly recommend this moving company.

I assumed 2 men would be moving me. I hired movers rather than have friends help so that I would not have to move myself. (as I have an arm injury) However, it was a woman and a man. I did not feel like I could just sit by while a small woman and man moved all of my stuff. I feel like I ended up moving just as much stuff as they did. I expected a discount because I moved so much of the stuff myself, but did not get one. They were nice people but they were also a few hours late. I would have done better to just have friends help me move and only have to pay for a Uhaul. I would have had to do less work that way.

From beginning to end, Pack It Up moving was a class act. We received a prompt, free quote to move our household from SC to AL, and the price quoted was unmatchable by others we received. Communication with Tori (the owner) was consistent and quick. The movers were polite and efficient. The whole experience was simply great.

They were very quick with responding to our request for movers and had an opening to help us within 2 days of contacting them. They were late arriving to our apartment but they did communicate that with us. The movers were fast and although they weren't super careful with all of our stuff everything got there fine and undamaged. Did not accept payment until we had everything in our new house and were satisfied with the move. We would call them again if we move locally.

What do you want when someone moves your belongings? You want people who are careful. You want people who are efficient and fast. Cory, Karen, and Tyler were a force. They moved us quickly and with care. They even took heavy items out of our basement to discard- water heater, etc. I wouldn’t change a thing about our moving experience with All Out Moving and Cleaning. I recommend them 100%.

We moved from one storage facility to another location a few miles away. The day of the move we had a dead battery in our truck and had to push back the move twice and our time didn't start until we meet at the storage unit. Karen and Cory are great to work with; very organized and efficient . I would absolutely hire them again.

I truly cannot express how wonderful Kevin and his crew were today. We went with another mover and they literally pulled their crew from our move and rerouted them at the last minute leaving us in a horrible situation yesterday. Kevin and his coworker showed up at 10 AM today got us moved swiftly and seamlessly. Took great care with all our items. They were personable, and hard-working. We are in a rental until out home building is complete, and I will trust that moved with no one else but Kevin.

The movers were right in time. They were quick and very professional when helping me move a large fountain from my truck, over a retaining wall and into a new garden space. . I highly recommend Glaser & Sons.
