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.

Movers were awesome and very polite. Made the craziness of moving day so much easier.

First time hiring movers & they were great. Moved from the 3rd floor & everything was still moved in a timely manner & packed neatly. They were careful with my furniture & took the time to wrap the things that needed to be wrapped. I will be calling them the next time I move!

Cordoboe was really professional! The reason why I chose them in the first place was because they were consistent of all of the moving companies that kept emailing me. There were no hidden fees and the movers were awesome. We had a nice conversation the whole time they were moving my stuff. Nothing broken and the move ended up being cheaper than what was quoted. Thank you and if I ever move again, I will be only using your company.

These guys were great. I had trouble finding a mover for two weeks. The day before I needed to move I contacted Maverick Movers and they were there at 7 a.m. the next morning. The guys were all very nice, worked quickly and took great care in handling my items. I will definitely contact them first if I ever need to move again, as well as recommend them to anyone I know needing a mover! Thanks again David, to you and your guys, for coming through for me!

If you are looking for professional and trustworthy movers then Manifest moving is the choice for you. I’m happy that I chose to do business with these guys, they made moving from a 3rd floor apartment a lot less stressful. They got the job done in no time for a great price! Very fast responses as well.

Was not available for the time we agreed upon. He committed to moving me on a Friday evening a week prior to the move. Last minute tried to hook me up with a mover. If I had not followed up I feel I would have been waiting because he had no intentions of moving me as we had discussed. Gave me several excuses why he couldn't . Not dependable and would never call again.

Two weeks before our move, I called and spoke to a man scheduling for 9am Saturday morning. The day before scheduled date, a girl calls to confirm my 12 move time. We discussed the change in time and she said the manager would call me back. Never got a call. Day of move, I call the girl at 11am, she says they will arrive at 2pm. At 3:00, she doesn't answer the phone. I hire another company for the next day. They arrive at 5:30. Manager is out of town but movers call him to settle this tardiness. Manager gives me a $100 discount for a $600 move. New house floor was scratched, a few broken things in boxes but the movers were pleasant considering my frustration.

Moving is a stressful event and my experience with this company increased my stress exponentially. The movers did not arrive within the quoted time window. The truck was too small to accommodate my move without making multiple trips. The first load was not unloaded until almost midnight so needless to say it was too late to get my other items without the move going well into the early morning hours. I subsequently had to hire someone else to complete the move on another day. While the movers were courteous, one of them began throwing up and became ill thus adding to the delay and an additional person having to come. My furniture was not properly wrapped even though I had purchased pads thus some items were damaged and scratched when this could have been avoided. The experience was terrible.

The service provided was actually quite good because: 1. Moving crew was fast and efficient. Keep in mind with every move you make things will get dinged, scratched etc but over all they did an excellent job. I am missing a couple of shelving boards (I expect this so no surprise) and a sofa table was cracked (stuff happens). Not a big deal 2. Cleaning crew also did an absolutely wonderful job. The house sparkles and will be ready for its photo op so I can sell it hopefully quickly. Would I recommend them for your next Move? Most definitely YES!!! I have moved between 14 to 15 times in my adulthood.... used everything from do it all myself (early on when I was single or newly married and no kids) to using professional movers with corporate housing etc and from a small studio apt to filling up a 3500 sq ft house with 5 bedrooms and a bunch of stuff. So I have had a little experience of “moving” 😏😏😏

Great professionalism, response time was really quick considering the holiday season. The two-member crew did well in completing the move from the storage unit to the new home within the stipulated time. Will hire and recommend them for any prospective moves. Keep up the good work!

Blue Mule is by far the best moving service I have ever used. I actually had to use them twice since my new home wasn't ready in time and had to move my belongings to storage. They were so professional and efficient. They worked their tails off and were very careful with my new home. I would definitely recommend them.

Brett and Andrew were amazing! They're so professional, organized, careful, friendly, and efficient. This move was smooth and stress free thanks to them. I would honestly recommend AERS to everyone. In fact, my parents will be using them for their upcoming move. If you're searching for trustworthy professionals they are your guys. I can't say enough great things! HUGE thank you to Brett and Andrew. :)
