Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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’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.

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 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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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.

Excellent job! Movers arrived on time and all were super friendly and professional! I didn’t have to give much direction to get the job done! There were also no hidden or additional cost which was a huge plus! I would definitely use Family Moving again for my next move!

We needed last minute help on moving a treadmill to our upstairs, and they were quick to respond and quoted us fairly! Some wanted to double charge us just for moving a treadmill. They were fast and careful, making sure they didn’t hurt the walls of our home! Would definitely recommend them for all your moving needs!!

Our movers arrived on time and were fairly efficient with the job. Really can't complain! We had 2 guys and they moved in sync and got it done. But the biggest help was when moving the washer and the water pipe bust!! They were able to quickly step in and help my mom shut off the main water. Very thankful for that!

Movers called to set appointment -told them I wanted 3 movers at $90 per hour plus trip fee. Three grown men showed up EVERYTHING was either in the garage, living room area or bedrooms upstairs - beds were already broken down. See pictures attached - (when they came I had not wrapped the wardrobes and dressers but I was going to do it while they moved other stuff out - the ONLY thing not pictures is one more bed and about 6 dining chairs that were behind the some items) Initially one guy told me the move should take 3-5 hours. Then another guy told me "Miss it takes time" and that the move would be 5+ hours- maybe even 6 or 7 hours. Then I told them to let me pay for 4 hours - two hours to load and two hours to unload and whatever we could not move in that time that I would figure out how to get it moved. - The guy told me that with 4 hours - they could only move my bedroom (queen bed, dresser, chest of drawers, makeup table and wardrobe) with THREE MEN. I told them at $90 per hour (effectively $100 per hour with the $35 per trip added) that it was only fair to give me a more concrete estimate of time instead of 3-5 or 5+ or 6,7 hours - but they would not. Finally they told me that they could not do the move. I had to hire another set of movers (PERFECT FINISH TRANSPORTATION AND RELOCATIONS) who actually moved EVERYTHING below in 3 hours with 3 men and a younger man that semi-assisted. Nothing damaged - VERY EFFICIENT and PROFESSIONAL. Please know what it takes to move your items so that you wont be overcharged which is what Castle Movers TRIED to do to me. UPDATE The response it NOT TRUE - if you look at the pictures you will see that I was prepared for the move other than the wardrobes needing to be wrapped - I did not mistreat or curse anyone - I just wanted a more concrete estimate - you cannot say 3-5 hours and then say it could take up to 7 hours. I could PAY for the move - I could AFFORD more than $300. I am an accountant. You cannot give a range of $300-$700 for a move - it needs to be more concrete - I have moved several times and I move all of my items to one or two areas because I know that it takes time to go all over the house and although I CAN pay for more than 3 hours - I KNOW from prior experience that it does NOT take more than three (4 hours max) to move what I have.. NO WAY it should take 7 hours with 3 people - no way... I move all of my own clothes, boxes etc. I only hire movers for my large items (beds, dressers, shelves, washer dryer sofas etc) and I never had this problem before. The company that finally moved me - did so IN THE RAIN in 3 hours and I paid them their fee PLUS a tip.

This is the worst moving company I ever experienced. The company did not deliver what was promised and agreed to. They are unprofessional and unethical. The owner lied on services that were initially agreed. This HORRIBLE moving company deserve a zero star rating.

Corey and his crew were excellent. He was able to complete our move on a very short timeline as we had to be out of our storage unit by the end of the month. The crew showed up on time and was able to move a 10x15 storage unit into a 2 story home in 2 1/2 hours. I would recommend this company to anyone and if we ever move again we will certainly use them again.

I contacted Reed’s Packing company at the last minute for a move from Dallas to West Texas. Bryan reached out to me immediately and offered several options; he was very professional and extremely helpful and was dedicated to helping me have a seamless move. Because of his professionalism and knowledge of packing and moving, I decided to use him and his team for my entire move. I am so happy I chose this company. They arrived on time, packed my items and secured everything in my 4 bedroom home and all my items including TV’s, dishes, etc arrived in tact and on time. His team drove over 350 miles one way, short notice and unpacked all my items and set everything up. I am still in disbelief on how quick and seamless this move was, I was dreading the move until I contacted Reed’s. I will definitely use them again and refer everyone to use them. Thanks for your suggestions, reasonable prices, and professionalism.

This is the best moving experience I have had. I was treated as a priority. Three gentlemen came to assist me and they all were friendly as well as professional. My move was done in the late afternoon and they were done in no time, even with a rusty washing machine hose, lol. Honestly this is the way to go of you ever need to book with movers, they only had five stars but I'd give em 6. Thank you so much for the professional and timely experience.

The guys from Castle Movers worked really hard and long. The move took a few more hours and a few hundred dollars than originally budgeted; however, I was too tired from all the pre-packing so I paid "willingly. Still, I would recommend this company.

Very disappointed with this company. My move was scheduled two weeks in advance and I was in intermittent contact with the owner until the day before the move. He texted to cancel without a replacement. Although he offered to paint a room in my home as a good faith gesture, I declined because I felt he was untrustworthy. Thinking back, he never asked what I had to move, or requested to come by to see. In the end, I think it turned out exactly how it should have.

These guys were great. Only had 2 items to move but each weighed about 400lbs each coming directly from a gallery show room. They delivered and setup without any problems. Especially Check them out if you are needing a high end service move. We will be using their services again.

My experience with Castle Movers did not add up to my expectation or the reviews I read. We have used movers before, but this was not the best experience. I booked them from my move based on ratings/comments on this site and one other. I talked with Romero weeks prior to my move to make sure they had availability, also to discuss what my move would look like. I shared with him my big items and an estimate number of boxes (around 50 or less). We discussed a 26' truck with 3 men and around 4-5 hours. We agreed on the cost per hour. On the day of the move, that's what arrived. The 3 guys were pleasant. The "lead guy" (a name isn't necessary) introduced himself and began to walk through the house to see what they had to move. After completing the walk-through, he suggested that I get another guy over with another 26' truck. I asked the price of that and for the extra guy and truck it would be $50 more per hour. By now I'm confused why I would need another 26' truck for a 1300 sq. ft home, when I moved from 6 states to TX in a 26' Penske truck and the only additional furniture I had was a washer/dryer (that was still in their original boxes), mattress and box spring, 8ft. dining room table (legs were already off) and a cooking grill. I talked it over with my wife and we concluded that hiring another guy and truck would be unnecessary. The lead guy shared that he just wanted to let me know upfront so that I wouldn't say that I wasn't told upfront if they are not able to get every thing on the truck. Again, the guys were pleasant, but no the most efficient with packing the truck. Without going into a lot of details, I ended up being the 4th man when I saw how the truck was being packed and at what rate. I understood they wanted to be careful with my merchandise but I felt things could have moved more efficiently without incidents. I had broken all beds down, furniture was wrapped with the exception of the chairs and end tables. I thought it would be an easy move because of all the prep work done before they got there. I voluntarily helped them load and arrange some boxes so that we could get them all on the truck. The move that was "expected" to take 2 26' trucks took ONLY 1 truck....when packed correctly. When we got to our new place, again I helped with the unload that took only 1.5hrs. or less to do and that was with placing the items in their individual rooms. Because we had budgeted a certain amount for the move and I saw we were about to exceed our time, I told them I would unwrap and set up the furniture. My dining room table did get chipped, in which one of the movers admitted to doing. The lead guy called Romero, who only wanted to cover the trip charge, I told him what I would be satisfied with as a customer for the damage that was admitted to by his employee and he refused it. We negotiated an amount and I will leave that there. Overall, I would not use Castle Movers for another move, nor recommend them. It required too much of my supervision for a company that specializes in "moving." The crew was pleasant and I didn't have any problems with their attitudes, but did not meet my expectations with efficiency.
