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.

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’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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Muscle Movers did an outstanding job moving some heavy appliances for me. They were very professional and at a great value as well. I will certainly use them in the future for any of my moving needs

I had ‘Brothers on the Move’ come over and move 3 bedrooms and a den of furniture out of my house. They arrived on time, worked hard, and carefully moved all of my furniture out of my house for storage. Great work and great value. Will hire again!

Extremely professional and courteous movers. They were able to unload a 26 foot truck in about an hour and a half. I’ve done several moves before and the gentlemen at Muscle Movers have been by far the best company we’ve ever worked with. I honestly could not be more pleased.

I had a great experience with Brothers On The Move. I had a small job come up at very quickly. Brothers found time in their schedule, showed up on time, packed the furniture, moved it, and placed it exactly as I asked. They were fast, professional, friendly, and careful, all at a reasonable price. I've already booked them for a whole-house move next month.

Brothers on the Move called and even arrived early to pick up my furniture. Daniel and David were friendly and wasted no time in loading. They kept me informed through the entire process of moving since I was sending items to another location.

Mike and Matt helped me move on 01/24/18. These guys made our moving experience go much smoother than expected. They were very efficient and treated all of our belongings with the upmost care. They were also very accommodating to work with our last minute schedule changes. For the excellent quality of work we received, I feel like these guys are the best bargain in town. In the future, I will absolutely use Olympix-Elite Moving again. If you need help moving, do yourself a favor and hire these guys ASAP! Thanks again Mike and Matt you all are the BEST!

We hired Muscle Movers to help us move the items from our storage units and apartment into our new home. I hired them for two days, and had a different Team each day. Both Teams were the same- Professional, very strong, and willing to help with anything I needed move wise. Their ability to load the truck was second to none. They loaded the truck like they were some kind Tetris champion from the 90’s. They wrapped items with blankets and strapped everything in so nothing was damaged during transportation. I drove the truck between sites and heard nothing shift around. Once we got to the house they took a quick tour of the home and then started to work. They unloaded everything, placed items where I asked, and offered to help put things together. I am amazed that they did not damage any of the walls especially on our double landing opposing stairway. In all, Muscle Movers are legit and I would recommend them to help anyone move. Their value and professionalism will be hard to beat.

This company did quality work. The mover was cordial, professional, responsive, on time, and a good value. He moved a lot of heavy boxes upstairs for me and was motivated to see the end of that job. He learned the layout of my home quicker than I did and put everything in the correct room as he was asked. It was a big heavy job for me, but he had it done by himself and in record time.

Mike and Matthew helped me with a move from an apartment to a house. They made the move as pleasant as a move can be. They worked quickly and efficiently. They are nice and friendly. They kept a sense of humor. The price was reasonable. They are honest - I thought the rate was higher and tried to pay them more. They could have taken it and I would never have known but they didn't. They delivered some furniture we had donated and picked up furniture I had bought. We had pizza for lunch and they ate then got right back to work even though I encouraged them to eat more and rest a bit. I would use them again for sure - can't imagine ever using anyone else. Thank you Mike and Matthew!!!! Prayers for your success!

Andrew and Rob were life savers. My fiance had lined up some movers just to help unload our furniture and they backed out at the last minute. Frantic and frustrated, I googled local movers and quickly given thumbtack with a least of people to assist. Andrew immediately messaged me and agreed to assist me today even though it was Father's Day. They were friendly, professional and put my mind at ease with the care they took with our belongings. A God send, I will definitely be using their services again!

This was a very last minute move and we were quick to realize this job was bigger than what we could handle on our own. We desperately needed help packing and loading a truck. I reached out and they responded almost immediately. They were extremely understanding of our circumstances and were able to squeeze us in last minute! The 2 man crew was quick and efficient. I would hire them again!
