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.

Metroplex Piano Moving was top notch. They were available for the 100 questions I had and did a great job on the day of the move. They were on time, efficient, and they know exactly how a piano should be moved and secured. These guys are really the pros!

These guys showed up on time and got straight to it. They were super friendly and down to earth. They carefully took the time to wrap each piece of furniture they moved. They treated my move as if they were moving their own things. They were super accommodating even with the new apartment being filled with other people working and in their way. The move took no time at all.

The movers were slow. I hired three men so that i could get done on time, there was only 1 skilled mover. The other two just dragged along. In the end, i wasn't able to finish moving a 1 bedroom in three hours with 3 men.My dresser was left unscrewed and my washer and dryer were not assembled. Things were just dumped all over the place. I went with this moving company because of the good reviews but it really didn't match up to the standard or my expectations. Also my dresser was damaged but the movers didn't document it, even when i told them and they acknowledged it. The company refused to compensate me for any of the damages. I have never been so frustrated with a service in my life. I hired movers to ease the stress of moving but the movers added to my stress. Never again will i ever use this company. I do not recommend at all.

The two movers worked hard under a difficult situation. One mover very experienced and the second was new with little experience. The experienced mover was trying hard to train and get the job done. The movers did not have the right truck so there was a delay. Samuel the project manager should have scheduled a third mover since they were training a new person. Once Samuel delivered the larger truck, he spent some time with the team then he left. That was the last conversation, I had with him. Tried to call but no response. The move took too long and I probably paid for an extra three hours because of the experience level. Once again I am not holding the movers responsible. Samuel was to call me with the payment amount but instead told the mover to calculate. We calculated 8 hours. It was incorrect but Samuel did not call me. He instructed the mover to tell me. I was able to over hear him on the phone. Very rude and nasty. Certainly not the friendly guy trying to get my business.

We used Best Price Movers for my daughter and her roommates college move. They did a great job and highly recommend them. I booked them with short notice, had multi pick up stops and they arrived on time and were very fast and efficient and with all the stops and final unload only took 4 hours. They wrapped furniture and took care of the belongings. I have used several movers in the past, but this has been the best experience yet. Most of the other movers I contacted didn't respond back, or needed every last detail of the move and charged a high fuel service fee charge and these guys charge what they quote. If you are looking for fast, reliable movers these are your guys! Thank you so much!

I received a personal phone call from Romero who was very knowledgeable about his business and was able to answer all of my questions. I felt he was honest and transparent with cost, time, and the way Castle Movers operates. He even texted me some pictures of their previous moves. Our move is scheduled for next weekend so I cannot comment on the quality of work at this point, but I have high expectations and believe Castle Movers will meet them.

Provide the services that it offers! I have to pay extra as a result of trusting Abundant to get my move done! Owner stated that he wouldn't insure the move if I didn't reschedule! After rescheduling, I was told that I would be first. I requested an early morning move due to my work schedule. Owner stated it wouldn't be a problem. But they don't offer an early morning move! Now, I'm forced to pay extra expenses. As a result of Abundant's failure to meet my needs as promised!
