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.

One of the movers, Moved really quickly. The other was hardly helping him. We had to help move things. They scratched up walls that now need to be painted. They didn’t finish moving everything but we let them go because we could have done a better job at moving things quicker.

Houston Movers did a good job with getting us moved. As we moved from a home to an apartment temporarily. We actually needed more guys during the move and that was provided within 1 hr of us requesting. This was our biggest move to date and would use them again. Thanks for all the hard work!

Movers were respectful, on time and professional. Very pleasant experience. I also got the price adjusted due to it being only one piece that needed moving, something the other moving companies weren't willing to do. Will be using you again for my moving needs

Quite possibly the best experience I’ve had with hired movers. It was super easy to get the move set up. I even had to reschedule very last minute—was not a problem. The movers were very efficient and ensured none of my stuff was damaged in the move. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

DO NOT HIRING THEM EVEN IF ITS YOUR LAST OPTION! THIS MOVING COMPANY CANCELED ON ME 15 MINUTES BEFORE THEY WERE SUPPOSE TO ARRIVE TO MOVE ME OUT BECAUSE THERE TRUCK "WOULDNT START" THIS IS AFTER THEY CONFIRMED MY MOVE THE NIGHT BEFORE! THEY LEFT ME SCRAMBLING TO FIND A MOVER THE MORNING OF MY MOVE OUT OF MY APARTMENT. THEN DUE TO THE INCONVENIENCE THEY OFFERED ME TO MOVE THE REST OF MY STUFF OUT FOR FREE BUT WHEN I CALLED THEM ON THAT THEY SAID THEY WERE BUSY! THEY ARE A LOUSY EXCUSE FOR A MOVING IF YOU HIRE THEM YOU WILL REGRET IT...THIS IS YOUR WARNING.

I am very happy with G.A.M Movers. They called prior to their arrival, arrived on time, and worked quickly and efficiently. I was moved from my old place to my new home within 2hrs. Fees were as discussed. No hidden fees. It was a quick and easy process to book. G.A.M Movers made moving a less stressful process. I definitely would use them again, if I needed to move.

Jason and his crew were life savers! I contacted Houston Movers last Saturday to transport a refrigerator I needed to have moved the same day. I explained that a previous mover didn’t complete the job and Jason assured me he could get the job done at a reasonable price. Jason communicated with me throughout the day to let me know his crews estimated arrival time as they already had previous appointments scheduled. Moving can be extremely stressful but Houston Movers restored my faith in moving companies.

My daughter and I used this company to move from 1 bedroom to a house. Movers came a half hour before time which was awesome. Very surprised because it was raining cats and dogs. Everything was moved very carefully and fast. Our belongings were moved within 2 hours and assembled. Would recommend to anyone needing services.

They did a great job in moving us twice one time to move some boxes and furniture we needed to send overseas via container and the other time moving boxes to my new home. They were a bit late both times but overall they made it up during the move and were super efficient I definitely recommend Jorge and his team!

After talking with KGM Movers I was comfortable with their reasonable pricing. However, after meeting them and seeing their work, I stood quite amazed. These professionals were polite, quickly assessed the work area to identify their most efficient course of action. The teamwork my fiancé and I saw KGM Movers display was impeccable. Everything move was calculated with precise strategy. No scratches on my walls or doors. My furniture was nicely wrapped and loaded. KGM Movers places my furniture exactly where I wanted it placed. There work was done with great integrity from start to finish. I also appreciate the investment these guys made to their business by owning their own equipment and moving vehicle. I will use KGM Movers for future moves and refer them to others!!
