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. 

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. 

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.

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!

I was scheduled to have this company come and move me on October 18th. After calling and going back anf forth to make sure everything was to be scheduled as planned, the moving comapany calls me the night before to confirm everything and then does not bother to show the next day. I called and called and kept leaving messages, but still to this day, no one has called me back. This is very unprofessional and while the hassle of moving is a pain anyway, imagine my fristration level when I had to find people at the last minute to move my things for me. I will never recommend such a company!!!

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.

Epicare is going in my must-have list! Professional, prompt, very friendly, and his experience shines through in the quality of his work! I had to have some patio furniture moved and a rug installed. He also installed a cover on my beat up recliner. Beautiful work. Will call again!

Karen and the two men who arrived were very nice. They were personable and worked as hard as they could, given the circumstances. The team arrived late. They were supposed to have a 26' truck, but were not able to rent one for whatever reason. That being said, they were unable to fit all of my things in one truck, and we ended up having to carry some other things in a pickup truck. My mom and dad also came down to put some things into their minivan and pickup truck. I loaded my car as well. The items that were in the pickup trucks were soaked due to a torrential downpour on the way to the storage facility. When we arrived at the storage facility, they were unable to pack things in "like a puzzle". There was so much wasted space, that I had to rent a second unit. The move took over 10 hours, with the help of me and my father. Some of my furniture was damaged, not only from the rain, but from being dragged on the ground. I had to get rid of most of it. I was given a $50 discount. We also haggled over the distance of the move... there was a 10 mile discrepancy, even though the GPS showed the actual distance. On my second moving day, I ended up moving my things from storage myself, with the help of my dad and partner. The few heavy things that were left, I hired a different, more we'll known company. It cost more, but only took about an hour and my things arrived safely. I give two stars because of the cost and the fact that Karen, Corey, and the crew were very nice. However, I would not recommend this company.

Karen and Corey moved a few pieces of heavy furniture in my house and were extremely careful and professional. They contacted me immediately with a bid, were timely in their appointment and then arrived exactly when they said they would. What a joy!! They took very special care of both my house and my furniture. I would highly recommend them.

I can’t say enough great things about All Pro! I had an urgent need to move a pool table and with a day, they completely had it taken care of. They dissembled it, handled it up three flights of stairs, measured & positioned it and assembled it. They were extremely professional and courteous! I’ll definitely use them for all my billard needs in the future!
