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. 

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. 

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.

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.

I was happy overall with the movers! They were fast and efficient for me. Unfortunately the customer before me made the movers late for my appointment, but the movers called me right away to let me know when they are going to come and they made it on time...right on the dot! Thanks again 😊😊😊

The Moving Kings reached out to me almost immediately after I posted on Thumbtack and was able to set up a convenient move time within 24 hours. Jack kept me informed via text on the schedule and even checked in during the move to see how it was going. I appreciated the care the team showed my family and items while still moving extremely efficiently. Would highly recommend!

The 2 guys that moved were fast and they had a good attitude. Even in this covid lockdown, they managed to move me and will offer to wear protective gear. Give'm a tip, these are dangerous times to be out working.

The owner, Andy and his movers, Andy and Austin are a great group to work with. Pricing was fair and there were no unpleasant surprises. I do feel there should have been a third mover so that Andy and Austin would not have had to work as hard. I feel that Andy (the owner) should assess whether a job needs to or three movers. If not for this, 5 stars.

Do Not Use! Very rude experience! 3 mover for $120 an hour for 3 movers and the rate changed quickly to $135 an hour for 3 movers once they realized that a lot of people are moving right now due to school being out. I am very upset currently as my plans were set with these guys. They don’t even have a website! Not sure if they are insured. Very rude! Do not use! I am surprised that thumbthack has left this service continue! You guys still have the opportunity to make things right!

Tammy and Anthony were awesome on the front end and Blake and Drew worked up some sweat on the 10.5 hour move. Professional, courteous, and the best part is they're so very friendly! I would highly recommend them for any kind of move you might have. I used a cheaper company for a quck furniture move a couple of weeks ago and the list of issues was long. You definitely get what you pay for with Greater Austin Moving! This company is outstanding! Thanks for working so hard for the Boyd Family! Much appreciated!

Chris and Cane were punctual, friendly and professional. They took great care to wrap each piece of furniture and handle will care. My only suggestion would be is having a larger truck or multiple trucks so that all our contents could have be transported over in one trip. I had also asked for 3 movers which could have made the process go a little faster, but this was no fault of Chris and Cane who were excellent. I have heavy pieces of furniture that are challenging to move, and they were moved from upstairs which is more difficult. I would recommend The Moving Kings to others and use them for any future moves. Thank you all, Tisha Smith

Great communication. I heard from them quickly and they scheduled the move instantly for the next morning. They showed up on time and couldn't have been nicer or more professional. There is no doubt that I will call upon them again when I need something moved.

Not A Hobby Moving Company saved me in a pinch. Less than 24 hours notice they were able to move us out of our home and into storage in under 5 hours. Very fast and took great care of our items. Would definitely hire again.

Jason and his guys were great. They showed up earlier than the appointment was scheduled for (which I was totally okay with). I had everything packed and, after a quick walkthrough to make sure they understood the job, they started loading. We moved from a fairly small place but we had/have a lot of stuff. Neither of our movers complained about a thing and never stopped working until the job was done to our satisfaction. They even had to re-move a dresser that had been placed upstairs back down to the ground floor and move two more up. Great experience and I would use them again!

These gentlemen arrived on time, took care to disassemble our furniture and reassemble at the new house, worked efficiently to move all items, and engaged with us in a professional manner. For any future moves, I will definitely reach out to this company. I think their service is worth/exceeds the cost.

Had a heavy piece of furniture that I needed moved upstairs. When I sent a request, they responded immediately and set up an appointment for that same day. They were on time and were done in no time at all. I would recommend them to anyone who wants their move done right.
