Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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. 

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 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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

Our moving experience was relatively painless due in large part to the excellent crew from Secured Moving. From interacting with Arthur, the owner to our movers it was a great experience. Communication was clear and timely and our household goods were handled with great care! We will not hesitate to contact them again to help us in moving.

Family moving and storage moved my 2 bedroom apt on the 3rd floor a couple days ago. It was a long distance move so they had to take the furniture about 1.5 hours away. All the guys were very professional and respectful. They showed up on time and treated all of my items as if they were their own. I am very happy with family moving and storage and would recommend them to anyone. We will be using them in the future when we move again.

These guys were great! This is the third time I have hired a moving company - this was by FAR the best experience I have had! They called the morning of the move and were on-site in the time frame requested. They worked quickly and efficiently. Nothing was broken, scratched, or dented. I would definitely recommend Complete Moving Company, and will not hesitate to use them the next time I need to move!

Andrew was great. They handled our piano with care and moved it from one home to another. It was a seamless process, I highly recommend if you need to move a piano.

This was my second time using Family Moving to relocate my furniture & belongings in the DFW area. Colton & the crew showed up on time, and once we identified the furniture and boxes we wanted them to move they got straight to it making easy work of our extremely heavy furniture. The crew worked efficiently which is always a concern with pay by the hour services and I felt that they moved at a safe an effective pace the entire time. If you are looking for some extra muscle to complete a home move, do not hesitate in hiring Family Moving.

When I originally reached out to Secured Moving Company it was to get a quote for them to load a U-Haul for us that we were going to drive to our new home in Waco then hire someone to unload. This was due to being quoted astronomical prices from other moving companies to move us from Hurst to Waco. When I spoke with the owner we went over the cost of us doing this line by line then said he could beat that price and quoted us a very reasonable price for the whole move. He even stopped by our home right after we talked to discuss it in person. The morning of the move the guys showed up on time and got our move knocked out very quickly. They were extremely friendly and did a great job. I would definitely use Secured Moving Company again in the future.

We hired Extreme Movers to move several very heavy items (piano, armoire, dining table) and they exceeded our expectations by doing much more. We were impressed with how much they got done in just 3 hours. We were very satisfied with the care they took to do the move right.

We had such a great moving experience with Maverick Movers! Very quick to respond, easy to set up an appointment. The crew (Dave, Dave, and Charles) arrived on time and worked quickly but carefully. They packed a pod for us, and I was amazed at what they managed to fit in it. Then they moved some more furniture to two different locations. They were super nice guys and took a lot of the stress out of our move. We are booking Maverick again and the same crew for next month when we move into our new home, and it's such a relief to know I can rely on them. The reviews for this team are great for a reason. Thanks for all your help!!

Working with Corey Barnes and the Cordobe Solutions crew was a very positive experience for me. At first I had my doubts and this was my 2nd attempt at scheduling a move from my apartment. The first move was a complete mishap. Mr. Barnes made everything right for the 2nd attempt taking a discount off the entire job! I was really impressed with that as well. Then the day of the job the movers were at my apartment before the scheduled time, they were strategic in the movement of all my packed boxes. They were very respectful and considerate of my precious fragile items and all of my pieces of furniture. Brandon kept reassuring me as the client that this was an easy job and that he was carefully monitoring what needed to be done to make the move successful. I quickly booked this company for my final furniture move and cancelled the other movers I had scheduled. I would honestly recommend them for future moving jobs to my friends and colleagues.

These 2 young strong men were able to move my long piano down a long narrow hallway and into another room. They put it on it's side to get it moved. They were done in about 5 minutes!

Andrew immediately responded to my request for a piano mover and the process was super easy to get a bid. He was even honest with me about the piano “type” once he saw the photo and said it was actually a cheaper rate which is always a good sign- HONESTY! He communicated and updated efficiently and the entire process was smooth. The young men moving the piano were very polite and careful. I HIGHLY recommend for your piano moving needs!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

There’s nothing bad I can even say about these guys or this moving experience. I mean, sure a few little bumps because no move is perfect, but the experience with these guys has secured them to move me for the rest of my life. Communication is excellent and Arthur truly runs a great business. From accurate and fair pricing/quotes, to answering any and all questions, and having a GREAT team work with him. There’s really not enough positive things I could say about my experience. Instead of detailing it all, I will highlight a few things that stood out to me and made this an overall excellent experience. 1-Probably the biggest shout out I can give is flexibility and dare I say compassion. My original move date was scheduled for a Saturday afternoon. I realized that morning that I was not going to be ready for the teams arrival and move time. I reached out to Arthur and explained the situation. TBH, I truly expected to be told that I had to meet that time or do would lose their services. Instead, I was greeted with understanding and my move being moved to Sunday. This gave me the extra time I needed and allowed me to be fully refreshed, ready and completed when the team arrived Sunday afternoon. To me, that’s going above and beyond for your customer and why I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone. 2-Luis and Jacob were prompt in their arrival. Talked to me about the move. And did a great job handling things with care and even put furniture and boxes where requested or marked in my new home. They took charge, got it done quickly, but safely and efficiently. (And even though i had a lot more boxes than they had anticipated with my size of move, they did it all with courtesy and a smile.) They even did little extra things here and there (disassembling some things, moving items not necessarily in their scope of work). Above all, they just made me feel at ease and that I could trust these two gentlemen with all of my possessions to be moved safely and without damage. Well now that you have read my book, bottom line is: if you are looking for a moving company you can trust, who will treat your property with care and respect, work with you on scheduling, and give you a great deal as well, look no further than Arthur and the team at Secured Moving Company.

Moving is stressful and scheduling a mover I felt I could trust was difficult. But the guys at Manifest were a great find! From the very beginning they were very professional. Offering prompt, flexible service (I needed a mover the next day) and fair pricing. My move took 4 hours total. Including all transport and placing items in my house, both upstairs and down. The best part was the way they treated my family. I have a toddler with a ton of energy and they were both respectful and careful around him. Best part- his inquisitiveness did not slow them down one bit! I'd definitely recommend these guys! I never give anyone five stars. But if I could I'd give these guys 6!

We used the company to move from Hurst to Arlington recently. Frazer and Curtis arrived a little early, ready to go, and quickly had the truck loaded and moved to our new place, where they also unloaded everything, stacked it very neatly, and hooked up my washer and dryer. We were very happy with our experience!
