Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Texans Movers showed up on Dec 31 for my move. They brought an extra person, arrived on time and even loaded up in the rain. They were fast and careful movers. I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future.

1st Choice Moving was challenged with a same day request & move and delivered quality service. We had an unexpected urgent move and the team of Roy Ross and Brian Sennett did a great job. Even with having completed a full day of work already, the guys were professional, communicative and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend 1st Choice Moving and will use them again if needed!

Last year, my husband had an emergency hernia surgery that made it where he is not allowed to lift anything heavy and my father-in-law who usually helps us move recently broke his ankle, so we were in desperate need of help with lifting our heavy furniture. When I went on to thumbtack, 1st Choice Moving and Storage was indeed my first choice. I appreciated how professional Bruce was in his preparation for the move and I saw that he had years of experience. Moving day came and Bruce arrived perfectly on time with a smile on his face and a cheerful, “Hello!” He and his men worked tirelessly to help us move, in spite of the suffocating heat of Houston hitting hard that day. They lifted our heaviest furniture like champs and were careful with everything. My husband and I were impressed that they took even better care with moving our furniture than WE did when we moved it in the past! They had blankets and plastic wrap to ensure the safety of our things and they were all so kind. Bruce is the only mover that I will ever go with, now. He had a reasonable price and there were no surprises on the price at the end of it. He is a genuine person all around and a friend to everyone he meets. It was an honor and a privilege for him and his amazing movers to move us into our new place. If you are looking for help moving, 1st Choice Moving and Storage is the best.

Moved household from 2 storage units to a house upstairs. 4 guys with 2 trucks. Overall the move was great, just 2 of the guys needed to remember that there is no "I" in team.

They were great with the moving process and asked if I was satisfied with their work and if I needed anything else.

Alright. I've found cheaper movers that were just as good, if not better. But they did help me out on short notice and I'd much rather pay than move myself. However, they took their time driving from moving place A-B, we drove the same way and it took them 30 more billable minutes than it took me to drive at the same time. Could be worse. Could be better. Their "special" is actually charging more per hour than their top quote. I thought the $150 first two hours was including the trip fee. But no. It averaged out to be about the same as most companies. Won't recommend. Won't hire again. But thanks for the help on short notice.

I could not have asked for a better moving company. They arrived on time and ready to work. And work they did! For 5 hours in Texas heat this 3 man crew worked non stop. Nothing was damaged. They took time to properly wrap all items and secure everything. I went from a two story home to another two story home and they were like beast. The price was the best I could find without sacrificing quality. Well worth every penny.
