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.

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.

I have a very heavy home bar that needed moved from my garage to the sunroom and had to be moved around the outside of the house due to door width restrictions. The Aaron crew arrived on time, took great care in moving it, we’re very professional, and did the job at a reasonable price. I would definitely hire them again and recommend their services.

No Call/No Show/Pricing incorrect on Profile- This seems to be a common trend with this company if you have more than a few things to move. Moving is stressful enough but when you do not have a mover show up it is another level of stress. I also was quoted an hourly rate of $150 with a travel rate of $295, not the rates they have listed ($100/Hr with $100 trip is incorrect on profile)!

Quite honestly this has been the best experience we have had with moving companies! They were on time and worked non stop for almost 10 hours! Moving is incredibly stressful but this company made the experience positive and would recommend them to anyone.

Timothy and Steve were so great. Moving from Harker Heights to Bryan is a lot of work and they were so great throughout the whole process! They conquered moving my king sized wooden bed and dresser drawer up two flights of stairs without a single scratch. I am so glad I chose Almighty Movers. They were careful to protect all of my items during the moving process and they took their time driving to ensure everything stayed safe during transit. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and the price was SO right. 10/10 would recommend across the board!

I have a 3 bedroom home/ heavy safe/weight lifting equipment. They were so courteous and pleasant, so I had a really great first impression of them. They were professional and very efficient. They show up on time, surveyed the home- and got to work. They were genuinely concerned about my belongings. They made the move to my new house stress free. Total cost with truck/ labor was lower than other's estimates by a large margin. I would refer your company to anyone and will definitely be using your company again for my next move. Thank you Belle's Superior Movers!!

My experience was horrible. The movers were an hour late and when they arrived to my house, they failed to tell me that they do not have boxes. I learned by inquiring about how they were going to pack my stuff. The driver (supervisor) told me they would use trash bags (my trash bags) and when I asked what if I run out, he simply replied that I would have to buy more. They left my house completely trashed. Since all they were moving was large furniture you would think it would have been a quick job. WRONG! From 2 p.m to 1 a.m is how long it took them to pack and unload to the new house. I kept asking would the movers be able to get everything on the truck for one trip? The driver kept saying yes. Due to me having kids and my mother, I had to take the family to the new house once they started packing the last room. Since all of our clothing and belongings (that were not large furniture was still at the old house, I had to travel back and forth to pack up my family’s things. That’s when I learned that the moving company did not pack everything and even broke my daughters trampoline. There was a grill in the living and water damage in the garage due to the movers not draining the washer machine before moving it. DO MOT USE THIS COMPANY. I will make sure that they are on the black list for Fort Hood. No Soldier or person should have to do as much work as my family did after a moving company!
