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.

If you are looking for movers service I strongly recommend Expert Moving Co. They are puntual, fast, and very professional.

The good: Very nice folks who were extremely conscientious with our belongings. They moved us with essentially no damage to our things. The bad: They showed up late every day, extending our moving days late into the evenings. Their packers didn't bring enough boxes and left the extra items for us to move by hand, including items we had repeatedly identified for them to move. This was a very unwelcome discovery at the end of a tiring move.

The experience of my pool table moving was exceptional, the movers were professional, polite and proficient. Mr. Soto answered every question I presented to him and left his contact information and advised me to call if any questions or problems arose. I highly recommend this moving professional.

I couldn't be more satisfied with the movers at Cordobe Solutions! They were friendly, fast, and efficient. They went over & beyond my expectations and the price was much less than I was expecting! I would absolutely recommend these movers and if I ever move again in the future, I will be using them again!

After 13 hrs, many damaged items and $1400 the job still wasn't finished. We ended up hiring another moving company to complete our move.

Terry was great but his helpers were young and inexperienced. They banged walls and my husband had to help towards the end of the move. Cheap movers but you get what you pay for.

Awesome experience with Cordobe Solutions. They showed up early, kept me in the loop, went straight to moving and kept at a great pace. The guys they sent were very careful with my items, knowledgeable on how to move things, polite and friendly and both were strong as an ox. What more could you ask for in a mover?

Great value and punctual too (the system would only let me choose 3). I had a bad experience with a big name mover 3 days ago. Less than half of my belongings were moved and was charged $400 more than the quoted price. I searched Thumbtack and Safari Movers responded immediately. Cannot say enough good things about their service. Professional, kind, respectful, fast and reliable. I am a divorced mother of two and was struggling to find a mover to help me complete my move after the first moving company, while looking clean and cute in their uniforms, did not complete the job as promised. I highly recommend Dennis and his crew. They will not let you down!

The movers really worked hard during our move, we have a lot of large and heavy items. They were very professional and didn't mind me putting in my 2 cents on how I thought things should be done. Alejandro was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to my friends and family for their moving needs.

They arrived on time and was ready to work. These guys that moved us were very respectful of me and my items that they were moving for me, they hustled ! They didn't waste anytime at all trying to make more money. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know friends and family. If you need help moving these are the guys to call hands down.

Uriel and his teammate were very accommodating during my move. I had a variety of items and they moved everything in a timely manner. If you expect the team to use toll roads during the drive, be prepared to pay a bit more. Also, label fragile items and if you're moving to storage, be sure to prep your boxes so you know how they should be stacked at unloading. The unloading process at the storage felt a bit rushed, but the overall service was good.

They are very punctual and do not dawdle like many movers do when getting paid by the hour. I know this is not a one-off experience since this is my 4th time using them and the service and professionalism has been consistently a 20 on a scale of 10 each time. I will never hire another moving company.
