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. 

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. 

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.

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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Castle Movers were fantastic! These guys called ahead of time the day of the move to let me know they were on their way. The moving Crew: Adam, Andrew, John & David were awesome! There were friendly, knowledgeable of how to move certain things like refrigerators through tight doorways. They were accommodating to moving into a home with refinished wood flooring and were great at the disassembly and reassembly of furniture. They were very mindful of the protection and packing of the furniture to ensure no scratching or damage was done to my furniture and items. Enjoyed having them there to get my move done! Great Job guys!

They just finished moving our 6 ft grand piano from a 3 story townhouse to our new house and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I was a little concerned about the move down my steep flight of stairs but they made it look easy. From start to finish they were very professional and made the move stress free. Darryl and his company have a great local and national reputation and I will definitely use him again for future moves.

We hired Cordobe Solutions for a second time! They helped us move in 2019 and they just helped us move this year (2020). They work hard and are so kind! Very happy with this company.

Movers broke glass on my glass table and hid the damage by putting my mattress topper on top to cover it up. I did not notice until they left. We have yet to resolve restitution for the damage. Besides the damage, the move was quick, contact with the office has been responsive, and the movers were professional (I thought).

Michael was amazing! He helped me set everything up the week of, showed up on time, and was a speedy&efficient mover. I didn't think all of our things could fit in his truck, but he is a tetris master. I will definitely be using in the future if we move again! Thank you so much for making our move painless!

My moving experience couldn't have any better. As soon as they showed up,they introduced themselves. They then immediately started moving my belongings. It took them no time at all to have me in my new place. They even asked what else they could do to help after the move was done. They made sure I was taken care of before leaving.

I had a wonderful experience with Secured Moving Company. The entire process was one of the best moving experiences, (and I have used many companies and moved around a lot from being prior military, to the most current snow apocalypse that claimed our home requiring us to move, yet again). They made the process very easy. The communication was wonderful, Arthur was always on top of letting me know what to expect, listening to any of my concerns, and creating the best course of action for my needs. His crew was timely, professional, and very careful with my possessions. I look forward to working with them again. Thank you so much, secured moving company!

Shilo and Dane were awesome! I contacted them the day before my move and was able to confirm a 2-man crew and they showed up ready to take care of my move. I have moved many times and Shilo and crew were by far the best! They truly are gifted in packing the truck like puzzle pieces to ensure all of my things fit nicely and were in no danger of being damaged. I moved a storage and a 2 bedroom apartment with tons of boxes and they were able to complete everything in just under 7 hrs. They were fast, efficient, polite, professional and always willing to help with whatever I needed. I would absolutely use them again for my next move without any hesitation.

The two gentlemen that helped move me across town were respectable, efficient hardworking individuals. I tremendously appreciated their help. The task itself was not easy considering it was a hot summer day and I moved into a second floor apartment. But they still took the time to make sure everything stayed in tack and was handled with care. Very nice young men. I recommend them to anyone looking to make a smooth move! 👍🏼😀
