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.

Excellent moving experience! The moving men were fast, smiling and so very polite. We have used other movers in the past but none as good as Ready To Move.

A&M is a must for your next move. Amy was great to work with and responsive to all needs and requests. Truck and movers were punctual at all 4 stops. Movers worked well as team and knew what and how to do things. They delivered in all categories. Don’t take my word- 3 of 3 of the owners asked me for contact info for movers and complimented the movers professionalism. I bought the guys lunch and they hardly stopped until job was done.

To all the men at Luxury Movers-thank you. Maurice and his crew moved our household for us and were 100% professionals! We highly recommend Luxury Movers for many reasons: the crew treated our belongings with care, they are very reliable and honest, very prompt and personable, and for all the hard work they did the cost of the move was well within reason. We couldn't have done it without them! Now we know who to call should we ever need to move again. You can trust Luxury Moving Company, they will treat you right. Thank you!

Inquired about moving furniture the next day and was able to move it same day, much appreciated. Showed up on time, they received the instructions and went to work. Very efficient. I would not hesitate to contact them again for my moving needs.

They showed up the day of the move an hour later then I expected. Other than that, the move went well, all involved were courteous and professional.

Can't say enough good things about the ready to move Team. James answered the phone every single time I called leading up to the move and always answered my questions with out hesitation. Day of the move his team arrived thirty minutes early and called on their way. They did everything James told us the would do. (Brought moving blankets, shrink wrapped everything we wanted). This is our family's third move in as many years and I truly wish Ready To Move could have done them all. They are the only company I will use going forward. The actual movers were polite, professional and definitely knew what they were doing. Big Thank You from the Wilson Family.

For two guys being the age that they are I have never seen anyone move like that. They will outwork any younger moving crew out there. Also the price is great. I highly recommend his company for moving and I'm sure their handy work is also great.

We needed to move a 2 bedroom condo into a storage unit. The movers were great! They wrapped all the furniture and managed to easily fit it all in our storage area. The men were organized, courteous and very professional. We plan to hire them again when we move the furniture out of storage.

These guys were amazing. I have used movers in the past and dealt with tardiness, sloppy work and damaged goods. Luxury Movers were on time, polite, respected my belongings and did a phenomenal job. Ten hours of moving and not one wall, piece of trim or door was damaged. They rolled out a carpet and their dolly never touched the floor. I wish these guys did more than moving because I would hire them for every job that I needed done.

Cross-country move. Set up over phone was relatively painless. A little late arriving on day of move, but showed up at agreed-upon time and date of arrival at new location. Crew very polite and fast. Couple of minor glitches, but most everything came through the move ok. For the price, I was very satisfied.

Highly recommend this company for any moving needs! The two guys that helped move our stuff from our second floor apartment to our storage unit were absolutely fantastic! They were prompt, prepared, and very efficient with their time. Just one recommendation: have some water and Gatorade in the fridge and room temperature for your movers — they are very appreciative of it!!

Moved from one apartment to another. Originally asked to help with unloading but still had things at old place. Willing to assist with finish loading and they moved quickly. Will be happy to hire again and will refer to others.

I would highly recommend. It was my first time ever hiring movers but I will not forget the experience. The guys were on time, they worked productively and booking the move with this company was easy. I searched 5 companies prior and given it was last minute move they could not accommodate for minimum of a month. This company did accommodate though and it worked out. Again, I would highly recommend.

I had to call at the last minute to get movers and they had 3 guys at my house by 5 pm. They were the most considerate courteous guys you could ask for. They had to move me from 3 stories and worked so hard. They actually made this move enjoyable. I would highly recommend this company for their fast response and hard work. Great Job
