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 Georgetown movers
Matthew C.
The Moving Kings did a great job with our move. They were on time (actually they were a little early which was awesome!) and they worked quickly and efficiently. They were very courteous and took great care to move our items carefully. I was very satisfied with the whole moving experience and would definitely use them again for a future move.

Andy and his team were right on with the move. It took awhile, but they responsive, friendly and moved as fast as possible. We had a few dings from the move, but his team came in and fixed them back to new.

Did not come to job with proper materials at all. Did not come with any tools, dolly, or moving blankets. We had to assist with the moving of all of the furniture and used our dolly....which is not the point of hiring a moving company. While they did complete the job, I would not recommend using this company.

The two movers Julian and Jerral were on point they kept moving and never skipped a beat. Unfortunately we had the Texas ice storm this weekend, Andy the owner reassured me that my belongings will be safe at the base since they couldn’t make the move to the new place due to icy roads. I would definitely recommend this company.

Moving is a painful experience. Timelines are not always met... Furniture gets dinged... Nerves become frayed. Andy (the owner) did his best to ensure our move was painless. Andy and his team were great to work with on our recent move. Andy is passionate about customer service and worked aggressively to ensure we were satisfied with the service. His team were equally as professional and worked diligently to protect our furniture. This doesn't mean the move was flawless. However, with each issue Andy quickly responded to our concerns.

Have you ever had simply a smooth & (frankly great) moving experience? Bar none, these young men are THE BEST! 1000%! Such professionals, gentlemen, friendly, courteous, fast & on the ball & extremely careful with every item. They treated my things like it was all made of glass😀 I’m rarely this impressed (especially with movers!). This company could take over the moving industry...or at least they should.

The positive thing I can say about Genesis Moving is that they were very fast. Especially considering that there were just two guys. However, their van was a little smaller than I was expecting. Basically, they had to do two trips to move all of our furniture and boxes. Additionally, some of our furniture was scuffed up during the moving process, and our futon is missing the slip cover. But overall, Frank was affable and very polite.

This was the best moving experience service I have ever had. I had a terrible experience with a bigger moving company, I won't mention their name, Moo, so I was hesitant to work with any other moving companies. However, I was blessed to have found Mario and Sara. They are hardworking, professional, genuine, and have incredible prices. You don't need to look at the huge commercial movers. If you want it done well Ashford Home Services is the one to hire. They also do packing, unpacking, etc. I am also hiring them to haul some things away. I absolutely recommend this company to everyone!
