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.

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. 

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.

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.

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 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 do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

I hired two movers with Graceful Movers and was impressed with their communication and professionalism. Everything was moved with care and wrapped accordingly. I would absolutely recommend them, and if I hire movers again I wouldn't hesitate to use Graceful Movers a second time.

I shopped around for movers that I could afford and that also did not have a lot of negative reviews. I was only moving a short distance, from one apartment to another, so I was not expecting it to take long even though movers in the past have taken way too long, broken things and even stolen from me.. so I was nervous and skeptical about hiring movers at all. I was given a time window of 3-5 and two movers arrived just a little after 3. They were quick, wrapped up any furniture that could possibly be scratched or damaged and extremely professional. By 4:45 I was completely moved. Nothing was broken, damaged or missing either! Extremely satisfied and would definitely use them again.

I moved this past weekend (11/12/16). These guys arrived a little early, they were friendly and hardworking. They did my complete move in 2hours and 25 minutes. AMAZING! They took special care in insuring the my items were safe and secure. They wrapped things do they would not break. They were also very careful not to dent any walls in the new or old place. I will definitely use them again for any future moves.

I had a ton of stuff to move for living in just a one bedroom apartment and I was hardly packed when the guys showed up. They did a great job and helped me pack. Both were very nice. Showed up on time and worked their butts off. I will absolutely call them again for my next move.

I will definitely hire these guys again. They were on time, did the job really quickly and took care of my furniture. They took apart my furniture at my old house, moved it and set it back perfectly like I wanted it at the new house. More importantly they were pleasant to deal with. From my initial talk with Vanessa to the movers, each person valued customer service. Will recommend this company to friends.

We hired them on a Thursday for our Saturday move. We gave them all of our info and they said they would be here between 1-3pm. The last thing I heard was "please wait for confirmation"... So we waited. We called, we messages, we emailed to get confirmation. We heard nothing. No answer on the phone, not even a voicemail. It's now 4:00pm on Saturday, we still haven't heard anything from them, and we just hired 3 Men Movers. They will be here at 5:00pm. I have never given ANY business a 1star rating before, but the complete lack of communication has really frustrated me. I just want to be moved out already.
