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.

The movers were on time, worked fast, knew what they were doing, and made sure to be conscientious when moving furniture. Definitely recommend for anyone moving. Also best prices for smaller moves (2 bedroom house = 2 hours).

Both guys were great. They worked hard the entire move (I moved out of a third floor apartment with no elevator...and moved in June heat) They made sure my furniture/art work/electronics were properly protected and secure. I would recommend them for anyone making a local move. Thanks guys

The crew that handled my move was very careful, and worked diligently. I was moving only a short distance, but they were still careful with all of my furniture. Will use them again the next time I move. Chris - Franklin, TN

ASAP moving was very professional. I had a piano that needed to be moved from one location to another. Very quick response when I contacted them. We talked about details of job by texting, scheduled and they finished the job fast. I highly recommend ASAP moving not just for piano's but for other moving jobs as well. Very reasonable price as well.

Will find them or recommend them if I or my friend move next time. They moved in the same as the way I would do for myself. Move quickly and protect furniture effectively. They use blankets to cover door frames and wood and glass furnitures and carpet to cover wood floor. They came a little bit ahead of oppointment, and started after research. They are professionals.👍👍.

I moved out of a very small apt. Didn't have a washer or dryer to move , sold my coffee table and end tables. So all I had was a sofa, queen bed ,twin bed small dresser , a kitchen table and about 25 boxes. I had moved quite a bit over to my new place thru the week before. It took the movers almost 4 hours . I thought that was to long. Also my new temper pedic matttress was so dirty .

Do not use this mover. They moved my entire house into two storage units. It took them double the time they said and they did not bring professional movers. They broke many items. I tried calling them but the number they gave me does not work. I never got a receipt for my payment and probably will never be able to collect repayment for the damages they caused.

We had a great experience with our long distance move. We had a short timeframe to move and they pulled it off. We did the full pack and move service. Frank was very helpful with my questions and was always very responsive. The crew that came to do the move (Dmitriy and I think his name was Lev) were polite, professional, and took time to wrap everything with care. Only a few items got damaged out of a full (and I mean full) truck load. I would recommend and use them again.

We had a very heavy and very difficult modern glass and steel dining table to be moved. They figured out the best way- and was very careful and successful from taking it apart, moving it and putting it back together at our home location.

We have nothing but great things to say about our entire Bellhops experience. From our initial contact to our final check out with the crew, every step of the experience was smooth and well-executed. I appreciated the communication from the company and the team captain, Eric, leading up to and throughout our moving day. The entire moving team was punctual, energetic, helpful, cheerful, and FAST. They finished our move 1.5 hours earlier than we had estimated. From every angle, this was a very successful move. Thank you, Bellhops, and Eric, Joshua, and Cameron!
