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.

Moved my parents to assisted living. Family movers accommodated our schedule on short notice. The movers were on time and they were very efficient.

I hired Family Movers for an upcoming move for my busy son and daughter-in-law. My son said these guys did a great job with the move! If there was a negative it was they brought a truck that was undersized for moving a four bedroom house and spent over 1 1/2 hours getting back with a larger truck. (Don’t think it was their fault) Once the move began, it was smooth sailing. Hard workers and they did not waste a minute. Will use them again!

If you're looking for someone to move your belongings, look no further than these guys! They provided the truck, blankets, wrap...everything you need for moving and were the most affordable service out there. They were polite, efficient and moved my things quicker than expected. When it comes time to move again, I will certainly use these guys. Really can't say enough positive things about them!!

No Bounds Moving did an excellent job moving our furniture. I contacted them on Tuesday and they were able to get us moved on Friday the same week. They where punctual, very professional and friendly. The crew was careful with our furniture when moving it and even helped get it set up at our new location. They also have a fair hourly rate for service. I highly recommend they.

Only giving 3 stars on the fact that one person scheduled my move but comes the day of and nothing was on the books. Good thing I planned a day early. Needless to say, they got to me the next day and moved me out within 2 hours. They were good despite the miscommunication on their end.

If there was an option to choose 0 Stars I would. I would never in my right mind in my entire life hire this moving company again. The movers were okay but when we got to my unloading location we unwrapped the TV and my 55 inch LED smart TV was busted. I called the owner and he told me there was nothing they could do about it. I told both of the movers that my husband would take the TV in his truck and they assured me that nothing would happen to my TV. The owner did not work with me in any way possible to figure out a way to replace my TV. This moving company is a joke do not hire them. It says on their page that they're insured but if they're insured why are they not replacing my TV.

Wow! I have always used the same company for moving. I decided to check around for better prices, and True Friends had the best value and response time. Always nervous to book a brand new company for something like a big move, but thankfully that was not an issue. Nathan and Jeremy showed up at the quoted time. They were super friendly and eager to get going. They asked me questions about handling our furniture and home that no other mover thought to ask and that meant a lot to me. We couldn’t believe how fast they got done. They handled our things with delicate care. We will never use or recommend any other mover. True Friends has won our business forever thanks to the care and quality Nathan and Jeremy provided us.

I am very happy with my experience with Rent A Vets. They were professional and their work quality was very good. Everything that was explained to me when we were discussing the job was done and it was done to my satisfaction. I would recommend Rent A Vets to anyone who needs to move or have things moved. Their service was A+...
