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.

Good Movers made my move from a one bedroom apartment into a house a breeze! They were amazing to work with and the attention to detail and protecting my furniture during the move was awesome! They made moving a great experience and I would highly recommend them to other people making a move!

The moving team arrived early. All furniture was padded and wrapped. The in town move was fast and efficient, and the price was fair. West Texas Master Movers LLC was the top recommendation on Nextdoor, and so I tried them out. No regrets and very thankful.

Darrell and his team helped us move from Midland, TX to Austin, TX last weekend and we made the right choice! We had an apartment on the second floor in Midland and was moving to an apartment on the third floor, so we knew this would be a challenge. Good Movers was very professional and they have very flexible hours. We suggested we start the day as early as 5:30 and it was no problem for Darrell and his crew. We highly recommend using Good Movers for any local or long distance moving in Texas!

I have nothing but positive words for our experience. Robert was such a joy to work with. I was in the hospital during the time of our move and for him to make moving in to our new home so stress free was amazing. I was not able to be there for the move, but my husband could not stop raving about how professional the whole team was. They helped wrap anything that needed it with moving blankets, nothing was broken and they really treated our stuff with care. The pricing was also extremely reasonable for the quality of service that was provided. I would recommend Robert and his team to anyone looking for movers!

So thankful they were able to help my parents move on such short notice. The movers my parents originally scheduled didn’t show up and left them in a bind on Christmas weekend and E-Z movers showed up quickly on a short notice and did an amazing job! They moved their 4 bedroom house to another house across town so quickly while taking good care of all their belongs. Thank you guys so much!!!

I messaged Josh at 11pm the night before my scheduled move (after my original moving plans fell thru) not expecting a response at that hour, but he responded within minutes and told me he could move me the next day at 4pm. He stayed in constant contact and updated me every step of the day with his other moves. Even when one of his jobs ran longer than expected he STILL CAME to move me. I can not say enough GREAT THINGS about Josh and Cody.. I recommend them to anyone who has moving needs, they will not disappoint.. Thank you again for ur hardwork and great customer service. U guys went above and beyond.

Darrell Taylor with Good Movers provided a great quote, which is awesome BUT his moving crew was professional, punctual, worked quickly all the while remaining courteous. I've not found any items that were damaged (scratched, broken or dented) during my parents move. I truly appreciate Darrell going out of his way to make certain we were pleased before leaving the job. Would definitely hire again & will recommend Good Movers to family and friends. THANK YOU DARRELL!!

Good Movers showed up exactly on time on moving day with a crew of three. Wrapped, loaded and done in under 4 hours. Drove our stuff 6 hours, unloaded and done again in about 3 hours and headed off for another move. Darrell, Joey, Beau, Robbie and Malis got it done. No damage, no breakage! Great price. Definitely worth hiring!
