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.

Great move! The moving crew started fast and never slowed down. Everything was properly packed, safely transported and moved in quickly. I would not hesitate to use True Friends on any future moves.

Donavan and crew from Weekend movers were awesome. They showed up went to work and didn't stop till they were done. Very knowledgeable about moving our household goods, took extra care making sure nothing was damaged. We will definitely use them again if we need to move something. I would highly recommend all my friends and family to them for their next move.

First let me start off by saying that the movers were very professional and did a wonderful job moving my stuff. We moved on a very snowy weekend and my first appointment got cancelled. We rescheduled and I had to get an afternoon spot. All I can say is that if you want to move in a decent time, get a morning spot. My reschedule slot was an afternoon spot. My time was to be in between 12-2, but the movers got behind and they worked until 9:30 pm to get all my stuff moved which was great, but I really did need that morning slot. I would recommend using them, just make sure you get in the morning and you will have to call them if you want to be communicated with.

Travis and D arrived early in the morning and worked really hard to get me moved. This was my first experience hiring professional movers to help out and I'm extremely happy with the outcome. Travis and D were very friendly and hardworking and I would definitely hire them again in the future and recommend them to friends and family. They cut down the stress of my move by about 90%. I'm really glad I decided to go with this company for my move.

I needed to have a sleeper sofa moved to my home. On the day of the move I received a phone to confirm the set arrival time, which they met. The young men who did the move were very polite and took great care handling my sofa. i would recommend them and would use their company again.

Corey and Darius did a great job. They were prompt, communicated well and were very careful with all of the items that had to be moved. I needed to move several heavy and large antiques pieces. They guys wrapped and protected each of them thoroughly. I would recommend Family Movers not only for the job they did but also on the reasonable price. S. Smith

Setting up the move was very easy and Chris reassured Me that his guys would take good care of my belongings. The main reason I went with a professional moving company was because I didn't want my nice furniture damaged. My red washer and dryer have white paint on the sides from the door entrance to the laundry room. The flooring in the new apartment was torn by the movers with the washer. And my bedroom furniture, buffet, dining room table and deep freezer all have dents, nicks and scratches that were not there before the move. Spoke with Chris and was informed that customer has to understand that some accidents will happen and they are not responsible for flooring. He also stated that he would have his wood restoration guy contact me and it has now been over a week and no contact. I contacted Chris again on yesterday and he stated he would have wood restoration guy give me a call immediately and have not heard anything still from Chris nor restoration guy... Very disappointed.. Could have let friends and family do the move a lot cheaper and probably had less damage than I received from a professional moving company.

They were a pleasure to work with and did a great job unloading the items for us. It's a small group that has worked together for two years and you can tell that they care about their customers and their level of customer service. Will recommend to anyone who's looking for a local mover, and will definitely use them again for any move we may have in the future.
