Your burning questions: answered

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.

I did hire JD Moving and look forward to them moving me.

Mack Truck Moving was outstanding. Same day service, on time, professional and FAST! We've worked with other moving companies in the past, but we will be calling these guys for all future moving needs - big and small. Extremely happy with the service and I would highly recommend for your move. These guys moved big, heavy pieces with ease, and were practically running up and down the stairs carrying double stacked boxes and desks we swore we would never move again. Great service - thank you Mack Truck Moving.

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!

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.

Working with these guys was better than I could have imagined! We stayed in close contact because of the weather and they were very flexible about rescheduling to a better weather day. They moved me with just 2 men, and they worked like trojans. They were careful, efficient, friendly and accomodating. A friend hired a large company to move her and they said they would only touch the furniture twice. These guys actually helped me place the furniture once i the house...arranging it several times once it was inside. Can't give them high enough praise and...hoping I will never move again...will call them if I do

Their price was higher than anticipated so we actually choose another mover, however, I was impressed with how promptly they responded to my initial query and subsequent questions.

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!

I felt like it took way too long. It should have been no more than 4 hours, however, it took 6 hrs. Workers (not Dan) stood around and I had to ask them to help. They quoted $140/hr for 4 men. Only 3 came. Did not leave an itemized statement so I don't know if we received any adjustment for less workers than quoted. I think they are just getting started in business as they rented a U-Haul. Also found a pretty big ding in my drywall. They were the only company that responded on my Thumbtack inquiry and I could not locate another local moving company is the reason I selected.
