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.

My A-Star moving experience was excellent. Having moved many times from state to state throughout my career, I must say this was the most stress-free move yet! Carlos gave me a fair quote with no hidden fees or bogus charges; my belongings were picked up on time and dropped off on the date I requested. I will definitely use A-Star Movers again.

Amazing experience. Jorge and Felipe are the BEST two movers I have experienced yet! They were on time, work well together and simply get the job done. They were quicker and had better attitudes than the last crew of 3 with a difference company. We do not plan on moving anytime soon but if we ever shall have a move job, we will not hesitate to call Galactic Movers. Will most definitely recommend.

Very nice two man team of movers that made the moving process infinitely less stressful than it could have been. They were very positive and patient throughout. Even when carrying everything up a 3rd story walk-up. (And there was no charge for being on the 3rd floor!) Only a couple of hiccups with the process. The first was coordinating a time. I attempted to book online and some error occurred that moved my time from the morning to the afternoon. Then, I wasn’t informed the movers couldn’t take credit card payments until after the move was completed. Thankfully I was able to change my schedule and I had an alternative payment method available.

A great company!! We hired them to do some heavy furniture moving within our home - they were punctual, polite and professional! My plans changed somewhat from the initial call, to the actual moving day - yet they were flexible and agreeable, and carefully moved what we needed. (and made it look easy! :) We will definitely call them again!

Hired 1st Choice Moving to move out of a 2 bedroom apartment into a house. Apartment was on 3rd floor (sorry!) and some of the furniture was fairly heavy. The 3 man crew did an outstanding job wrapping the furniture and getting it out and moved in rapid fashion with no damages to anything. Great job, very professional, fast and courteous. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone.

Texas Movers were very professional for our move. We contracted for packing, moving and an unpacking service. They were efficient and effective with every step of the move. They arrived 15 minutes early and finished in record time. They weren’t “milking” the clock. During the unpacking stage, they organized my closet, dressers and kitchen cabinets like I’ve never seen. They hauled away the boxes and debris which allowed me time to spend with my family. I’m so appreciative of their service, timeliness and responsiveness. I would definitely recommend their services others.

Lillian was very quick to respond & kept in contact even up until the day of our move. We used a 2 man crew to move a few items from our townhome, storage unit & then the final destination. The guys moved swift & was very gentle with our things and provided their own tools, wrap & blankets. I would definitely recommend them & they are very reasonable!

The job was to move a 2 bedroom apartment to a storage unit. The one position I will give is the guys were very quick. Unfortunately this meant they sacrificed organization and were very rough with my belongings. At the end of the day, the storage unit was very poorly organized, and the boxes were stacked in a very disorderly manner. None of the furniture was wrapped, and very few moving blankets were used. When my wife and I move back and unpack the storage unit, I will be very surprised if I do not find several items damaged. When you think of stereotypical movers, these are the guys you are thinking about.
