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.

Move-It Movers moved our piano from our house to a family member’s house. They were very good and took the time to make sure that everything was safe and secure. I would hire them again for any other moving jobs.

ASAP Moving responded to my job order quickly. They were able to schedule a time to come out that was quick and convenient for me. The cost was affordable to move my super heavy washer and dryer with pedestals attached from garage to second floor laundry. They even hooked up washer and dryer for no additional cost. I would definitely recommend ASAP moving for your future moving needs.

This dream team was simply amazing. I received several auto replies from other companies via Thumbtack, but this team went above and beyond by proactively following up with me. They quickly responded to my questions. That was confirmation that We Haul Nashville was the moving company for my family. The moving experience was hassle free, and I had more items to moved than I originally planned, but they did not complain. I highly recommend using this moving team.

We’re a newly 13+ year military transitioned family. In all of our years of being moved, we can honestly say that “Infiniti Movers” company is by far the best company to move us. They are the absolute best at what they do. They are professional, responsive, punctual and kind. They are incredibly transparent and are always willing to answer any questions or concerns you may have. They are also family friendly and are awesome with children! Thank you Infiniti Movers! You have gained a life long family of customers.

Rick kept in touch with me throughout the whole moving process. I was so worried because our last moving experience with a different company was a complete nightmare and Rick reassured me that the move would go smoothly. He kept his word all the way to the last item being placed in my new home. His guys worked hard and treated all my items with the utmost care. I can't say enough goods things about this moving team. If I ever move again I saved Rick's contact information in my phone because I know who I will call without a doubt. Thanks guys! Your expertise was greatly appreciated! Thanks for making this move unstressful!

I moved a 1 bedroom apartment with these guys. All my furniture is wood, nice and new. Scheduling was super easy, done entirely over thumbtack. They called ~30 minutes prior to arrival. Two guys and a truck showed up with all the necessary equipment. They wrapped each piece carefully, and moved quickly but without cutting corners. Nice folks, too. They were true to their quote and the price of my move came in under budget. Literally the ONLY bad thing about this move was that one piece of furniture has a small (1/2 inch) scratch. I noticed it after the move was over and I can't even say it was their fault. I may very well have scratched it myself and just forgotten about it. Great service from these guys, would definitely move with them again.

I hired Alpha to help me move furniture around within my house. I had a lot of heavy pieces that needed to move up and down stairs. The movers were on time, professional, worked hard and swiftly. They were careful and did not cause any damage to my walls. I would certainly recommend this company. I was very pleased with the job done. Thank you guys!

They showed up half an hour early, and while we only paid for them to move our heaviest furniture, they took care of the rest of our moving truck and finished before they were even supposed to arrive. Excellent, professional, and courteous.

I can't begin to explain how great these guys were moving my belongings. They went way above and beyond to make sure this move went smooth. I couldn't have done it without them. Showed up on time, and the work quality was above the bigger corporate companies. If anyone is looking for movers, you can bet these will be the ones I recommend. Dealing with me is no easy task, and these gentlemen did it with no hesitation. My aunt had so much stuff I wasn't aware of, and they looked at it and said no problem, let's do it! All I can say is thank you for your hard work on this crazy hot day, and keep up the great work! If I ever do move again, I hope your available to move my stuff again!!

The guys from Iron Wolf Moving were fantastic!! They arrived on time and worked without stopping. We were only moving part of our household to move our adult kids’ stuff and to partially furnish an AirBNB. I think this made the job harder than many moves because it was a little confusing what we were taking and what we weren’t. We gave them a run for their money, and their attitude remained positive and incredibly helpful the whole time. They were professional, knowledgeable about how to pack things, and easy to have in our space. Most impressive was the way they somehow managed to fit all our stuff in just over 1/2 the space we had estimated we would need. I highly recommend Iron Wolf Moving without reservation.

At first I was a bit hesitant when Kari and Will showed up - younger movers have caused issues for me in the past. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see these two young men work harder than any other movers I've used in the past. They were courteous and professional the entire time and handled our goods with the utmost care. I highly recommend True Friends, and will be using them the next time I need a moving company!
