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.

Loved how quickly they were able to move me and on short notice. Even saved me an extra day of moving by packing and moving everything in one day. I would absolutely use them again.

It was the best moving experience I've had, and I've moved quite a bit. It was also the most expensive, but you definitely get what you pay for.

Outstanding job. Professional workers, punctual, careful with the furniture. When moving in even suggested layouts in the new property and helped place everything. Also helped me dispose of some bulky items. I moved many times while in the military, and often had the grab-and-dump type movers, or the big companies who damage your stuff in the warehouse rather than during the move. These guys definitely are neither. I highly recommend!

I would definitely recommend this company! I had scheduled for the movers to come on a later date but needed to change it last minute - to the very next day. Smart solutions were able to fit me into their schedule and accommodate, even with last minute changes and also allowed me to add a tv mountings service to my move. The movers were very professional and fast. Excellent company!

Amazing service by an excellent moving company! Timeliness: They gave me an arrival time window from 0800-1000, they arrived a little before 0900. Efficiency: the movers started working as soon as they got there and their time started. When they were done, they had the integrity to put the time that they stopped working and didn't include the time they used to clean their truck out or finish the paperwork. Quality of work: The movers were extra careful with my household goods. Customer service: they were very nice, called to remind me of my upcoming scheduled move and called the day of to ensure I was ready. The movers that arrived were extremely friendly and attentive as I walked them through the house and pointed out the items to move. Cost: the cost was very reasonable. No hidden fees, no extra charges. Paid exactly what I was told I would pay. Would hire them again in the future.

Very professional. They helped move my single floor 3BR to a 2 story 4BR with an office. They packed, labeled all the boxes and hauled everything. They disassembled my large items and put it back together at my new place. They put the boxes in the right rooms, even the ones upstairs. They were so helpful and efficient with their time. I'm truly grateful: with all the stress that comes with moving my kids and a disabled husband, this team took 70% of it off my back.

Nice people; new business. Packers put dishes, flatware, glasses in all different, huge boxes. They underestimated the move. Many boxes were mislabeled or under labeled and sent to the wrong room.

House N Box moved all my furniture, no damage and wrapped to protect, and worked quickly. They were professional and efficient. Unfortunately they were late but more really due to traffic and weather. Overall, I would do business with them again and would recommend them. 4.5 stars.

Service was okay. One of the movers broke a leg on my vanity. They attempted to glued it back as a form or repair. Wasn't happy with the repair so I spoke with the owner (Humberto) and he agreed to replace the leg through the manufacturer, I haven't heard back about the replacement leg in months. Cut your loses and go with someone else.

The crew was extremely friendly and professional. They handled all furniture with care, making sure everything was covered and wrapped for protection. They worked fast, but carefully and gently. They didn’t bump walls and they handled all my furniture like it was brand new. They accommodated me with an additional stop and didn’t charge me extra. This moving experience was very pleasant and the guys was super friendly and extremely professional.
