Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Best move experience I have had. I have moved with other quite a bunch of times but Brothers on the move are the best. Worked with my schedule and delivered my stuff as planned. They seem very professional and quick. They loaded the truck in no time and wrapped the furniture very well. There was no damage to my stuff during the move. I would definitely hire them again and recommend them as well. Thank you Brothers on the move for making my move so fun and relaxing!!

Moving from Knoxville, TN to Cleveland, OH was a lovely and pleasant experience. I had hardworking movers who did their best to pack my expensive furniture safe and delivered everything I wanted to move in 7 days. I am content with the price and with the fact that I had a careful and fast moving.

MackTruck Moving is EXCELLENT. I contacted MackTruck Moving after reading reviews on Thumbtack and Facebook; Mackenzie responded within a couple of hours and we talked via phone that same day. He was professional and prompt. Moving rates were more than reasonable. On moving day, he and a colleague moved me from a ground-floor home to temporary storage in a friend's home. They navigated the awkward storage situation, and being in someone else's home, with grace, and worked tirelessly so we could avoid the coming afternoon thunderstorm. I'll soon be moving out of temporary storage to an apartment, and I will be contacting MackTruck Moving to help me once again!

They showed up a day early. There were only 2 men and I had told them multiple times that I gad a baby grande piano to move. They were not prepared to move it and I had to hire professional movers to move it out of my house. When moving into my new home, they made a large scratch in my stairwell and broke a claw foot off an antique table. I was never so happy to see them go. Would never recommend them.

Andrew, David, Josh and one other young man from Brothers on the Move were absolutely wonderful in helping us with our move. My husband and I are "getting on up in years" and he is a disabled veteran, so we hired Brothers on the Move to move the large items from a home we were renting to a condo which we had purchased. They did a wonderful job getting our large items moved and set up for us. They were professional and so helpful that you couldn't help just "loving them"! After the big move, we once again faced the fact that we were going to be unable to move a lot of the remaining "stuff" we had to get out of the house. Once again, Brothers on the Move came to the rescue and moved the remaining items for us. We could not have hired a better company to help us during this stressful time! They were all very professional, courteous, and very careful with everything they moved. They can also help you with other areas of moving, or refer a "good company" which can help you with landscaping, "clean up", etc. You could never go wrong by hiring Brothers on the Move to assist you with your move and you can feel safe and confident that they will do the very best job possible. I personally recommend them as "the best" to work with during stressful times, and a joy to work with. Also, if you happen to be a Veteran, they are very understanding of some of the needs you may have, and will do everything possible to help you.

Olympix-Elite's professionalism and work was extremely impessive. They made sure to go above and beyond moving my furniture, making sure all my belongings were protected during the move. They worked non-stop until every single item was moved. Their rates are very reasonable, and the work you will receive will go far beyond what you pay for. I highly recommend them for any move.

Kevin and his partner were early (but not too early) and they got after it from the get go but we’re also very careful when moving our items. I’ve had different moving experiences with other movers before and I was very appreciative of the job they did.

My movers from Pick Up Movers were the best moving team I ever hired. They relocated my belongings from TN to MD within 6 days for a super affordable deal that didn’t rip me off in the end. I recommend their services and I hope we’ll collaborate again.
