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.

O'Shaun Ford was a delight to deal with and he made a local move less stressful. They showed up on time and completed the move within 2 hours. I would definitely recommend Heavylifters for local/long distance moves and even if I have a heavy piece of furniture to move from one room to another.

I needed to move a very heavy bedroom suite and a chaise lounge from one house to another house. I contacted Clockwork Transportation and spoke with Trevor about my small move. I called him on Tuesday hoping to get the job done on Thursday morning. He was very nice and told me he could do it. I told him I needed 4 guys for this job and I was willing to pay for that many because I knew how extremely heavy this furniture was. He told me that would not be a problem and gave me the hourly price for four guys. I felt it was reasonable and sent him the details. They showed up on Thursday morning ready to work. They worked swiftly, but carefully. They covered everything, disassembled the bed, assembled the bed at the new location, did not scratch any walls or doors, and they were all very professional, friendly, and efficient. They worked together like a well oiled machine. I recommend them highly if you are moving whether it is a big move or a small one like mine. I even gave them a little extra because they were so nice and did such an excellent job. You cannot do better than Clockwork Transportation. I give them 10 stars!!!!!

We hired them to move apartments and they were quick, efficient, and punctual. We knew our sofa would be the hardest to take to the rec room and they not only managed to get it done, but it made it seem easy. They know what they are doing and they do it at an excellent rate.

I tried this site for the first time and I got the quotes from couple of vendors. James from "Mov-N-U Moving" service is awesome and they knew well on how to handle the furniture. They were four of them and did an EXCELLENT work in moving my furniture from one home to another one. They have neatly packed the furniture with blankets and cushioning material to avoid damage while shifting them. Did the work perfectly and swiftly. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend them to friends and family. Will definitely reach out to them if I need help next time.

We contacted Manny to receive a quote for a long distance move. We received a timely quote through this service and followed up with a conversation the next day. He was very responsive to my request to see our actual contents and provide a more detailed quote. His communication was great in arranging a convenient time to meet. He walked through and gave me a full breakdown of what he would deliver. He actually agreed to come out a second time just to make sure all of the questions were answered. For packing/ loading and delivery we were pleased with his customer service and responsiveness. Thank you for making the move a little less stressful.

They were good guys and worked hard. If there was a 3.5 stars I would have rated them as that. I'm pretty certain that they didn't put my bed back together properly because it is now making squeaking noises it didn't make before the move. However, I was impressed with how quickly they responded to my quote request and how diligent they were with their follow-up calls and/or correspondence.

I am about a year late leaving my review so I apologize however they do deserve 5 stars they handled moving into my brand new home last August. Professional, good pricing, flexible on going with me to Best Buy to pick up my new refrigerator and deciding to have them put together my king size bed last minute. Would use again definitely.
