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. 

Reviews for Smyrna movers

Moved from a 3 bedroom apartment to a house. The movers showed up on time and was very professional. The guys made quick time of moving every thing to the truck and to the new house. Nothing was broke during the transition and took less time to move than estimated. Great job, I highly recommend this company.

Richard was absolutely amazing. It started out as a smaller project and ended up with him moving furniture and finishing our packing for us. He could not have been better at handling our move.

Great communication beforehand and addressed my concerns about moving a large antique piano. They showed up on time and took great care to protect both the piano itself and my house as they moved it - even though it turned out to be a little heavier than expected. I was very impressed and would definitely recommend these guys to anyone with a piano needing to be moved! Great job!

Infact they day they moved us they were fully booked but even tho they were so tired they made space for us and move us still in the evening. 100% satisfied with their work. Will definitely recommend them. Thank you so much!!!

Excellent experience!! They were careful with all our equipment and very professional... but what really makes them stand out is their positive attitude. Moving is such a pain, but their smiles and eagerness to be helpful and make the client happy erases so much of the stress. I was very impressed and would recommend them for any moving job.

I will admit the start the beginning of my move was rocky as I had the movers hold off about 30 minutes before packing the truck due to a hiccup at closing. I take full Responsibility for that. They got there at 10:15 and I told them to make their start time 10:00. My paperwork reflects it. Spoke with the very frustrated owner (rightfully so) and came up with a plan. After speaking with some lady by the name of Jessica who cursed into the phone at me. They moved items onto the truck. Went for a lunch. (Left their blankets and 3 Vehicle loads of items in the apt also never told my family they were leaving). My family assumed they were doing a 2nd load. They pulled up to my home and my family and I helped them unload the truck) The movers said they had never had anyone help them and were happy. They marked my wall of my newly constructed home pretty badly also. The next day I went to the apt they “moved” me from because I noticed I was missing a TV and cord. Well discovered they had left so much stuff that I had to have people come over and load their vehicles down to move me. After paying them $800+ to move. I also tipped them. I sent an email to the email listed as their email to let them know and no one ever responded to me. I included some pictures.

I utilized Place to Place Movers on an out of town move. They were professional and worked with me even though there were a few delays that was not their fault. I was pleased that they waited for me until I was able to make it to my new location as I was delayed. The worked as a team and they were all very professional and helpful. Great job Antonio and crew.

Jonathan is the best. If you need a professional mover local or long distance hire All-Star movers. They were punctual and professional and responded when you asked a question either by phone or text. They were polite and professional. Everything was packed and loaded and made it to the destination without any problems from beginning to end. I recommend hiring Jonathan and his team!

Travis and his team did an amazing job moving us. As soon as they got to our house they hit the ground running and didn't stop until the job was finished. Even dealing with ice from the recent ice storm, the guys got all our stuff moved safely and as quick as possible. I would definitely recommend them to others, they are such a hard working, genuinely nice group of guys!

Would like to rate higher but, after booking my move 3 weeks in advance for 8am, upon confirming appt the day before, Jeff says he has me down for 3pm!!! Thus forcing me to reschedule other activities & cause inconveniences on day of move. Jeff was nice enough to reduce my rate by $10 an hour BUUUUT, sent an inexperienced(first move) man to do job!! So rate change didn't affect much & job took forever!! Insult to injury!! The only thing saving this is Robert! Robert was lead guy & did great job working with new guy. Both guys worked hard & were very polite & personable! No complaints with them other than inexperience. Got off on bad foot with scheduling snafu.
