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.

Dealing with Nate’s Moving Co, was a unique experience compared to other moving companies. Nate called with updates and when he made a commitment to a start time and day, he honored it. Nate and team treated our items with respect as if they were their own. Nate moved a piano for us and even helped move the furniture around to make everything fit and look just right. If you want to experience old fashioned service and great communication, use Nate’s Moving, if you want to be frustrated and taken advantage of call the other moving guys. Nate’s was honest and his pricing structure is clear and upfront.

They did a good job. They took care in handling and moving our stuff. They had to move stuff to a third floor apartment. The stairs are narrow and steep. They never complained.

Houston Movers did an excellent job on our move and their cost beat out all their competitors. They were very responsive with communication throughout the process - from scheduling a month prior to our move to estimated time of arrival on the day of the move. The two man crew hustled from the moment they started until they finished. All big furniture and fragile items were wrapped with plastic and/or moving blankets. They were patient with me as I decided where each piece was to go in the new house. And they were incredibly nice guys. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

GAM was very responsive. Though the move included a stop, they professionally put all my stuff in place with no damage. The move was also affordable - I loved off the island into Houston.

They were very professional. They wrapped all of my furniture and moved everything without any issues. They continuously worked without taking breaks. They moved me from a third floor apartment to a first floor and even most a few of my belongings to a second location. I will definitely use them again for my moving needs.

Texans Movers was great, I couldn't have asked for a smoother move. We had an "out of town job" from Galveston to Houston and they did it quickly, efficiently, and they were very professional. I would recommend them highly.

Movers were on time, friendly, and completed the job within the allotted timeframe. Great communication leading up to move--they accommodated me on short notice (I was unsure when my out of state furniture would arrive). Would definitely recommend!

I moved apartments at the end of the freezing storm week in Texas (last week!), which meant I had to keep postponing my move due to power outages. Lillian was very responsive during this chaotic for Texans week, always happy to accommodate my needs. The two movers were fast but gentle with my furniture and other fragile items, using wrap & blankets when needed. I would strongly recommend them!

I hired Texans Movers to move furniture in my home. I was moving items from garage to house. Moving furniture to other locations and floors in my home and some things into storage in my attic. There were many stairs involved and some items were heavy so I requested three workers. I also needed to move one piece of furniture to my son's home about a mile away. The guys worked steadily and I was very happy until the end when they began speaking Spanish in front of me not knowing that I could understand most of what they were saying. They made a rude comment about the tip and the whole encounter was very unprofessional. It left me with a poor opinion of the company which up until that time had been very positive.

After numerous reschedules where I was calling for updates, they finally arrived to move my furniture, boxes, and a baby grand piano. They had rescheduled 3 times allegedly because they have 2 guys who know how to move pianos and they were delayed on other jobs out of town. They finally show up and disassemble the piano , then decide we don’t feel safe moving it now. I support safety, how safe is it leaving a baby grand piano on its side in the middle of the floor. I guess since the moving guys charge by the hour the 2 hours they wasted on taking apart the piano, AFTER I went to the hardware store and purchased the tools they needed. Mysteriously the guys who knew how to move a piano didn’t have any tools. A typical experience with movers , poor communication, excuses as to why they can’t do something, last minute changes, workers who complained about the guy who scheduled the job, workers telling me they were doing me a favor. I am the customer I am paying you by the hour I expect at a minimum you show up on time, have your tools , and for the time you are in my house at least let me think you care about doing a good job.
