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.

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.

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 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. 

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 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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

The good: arruved on time. The bad:Two guys came for a 4 bedroom move after telling me there would be about 4 guys. Took 6 hours, not all of our stuff was moved and did a lot of standing around. Husband had to direct them frequently on how to move stuff. It took the 2 of the 45 minutes to move a desk that my husband moved into our home by himself in about 15 minutes. They were either purposely wasting time or didn't know what they were doing.

From the quickest response to my inquiry until the moving van pulled away, I could not say enough wonderful things about Jackson and his team at Hockaday Brothers Moving! So professional and detailed oriented in their packing process. Courteous and very patient with my 91 year old Mom who kept telling them how to do their job, lol :) Thank you, Jackson and Chris for making my Mom's move across SC easy and painless! Would HIGHLY recommend Hockaday Brothers Moving!!

We are so thankful to have the quality help of this team! After a different company no showed our move, we were completely unsure how we were going to make our move happen. Luckily, we were able to reach out to Kevin and get him booked for the very next day! He and his team worked so hard to make our move happen, were very careful with our items, and kept an eye on all the tiny details that go along with a big move. Not only did they do a great job, they were so funny and personable! They made our move not only as easy as possible, but full of laughs and good energy. We would readily recommend them!

David and Greg did a fantastic job moving is out of rooms in the house while we had floors redone, and then again moving us back in. They were smart and efficient in the approach, getting each love done in less than an hour (all the furniture in about 2500 sq ft) They were able to move some very heavy old hardwood desks, credenza, tables and even a mostly full refrigerator. Despite having limited room in a couple of areas, they were very careful and never dragged or bumped or marked up anything - walls, floors or furniture. Very pleasant to deal with, happy to help take a couple of pieces apart to move them through narrow doorways, and reconnect after the second move We would hire them again in a second. Recommend them wholeheartedly. A clear win! 😊

Tori's team moved a 3,600 sq. ft.home with excellence and professionalism. I echo the sentiments regarding the moving crew - smiling, joking and when my wife would be close to being overwhelmed one or another would say "we have your back, Ma'am"! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tori and his friendly and professional team to anyone.

Responded quickly to my request. I called on Friday and they were able to fit me in on Monday. They finished their previously job early and called me to see if it was convenient for me to move my huge curio cabinet early. I could not have asked for a better price or experience. I highly recommend Ready Removal !
