Your burning questions: answered

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.

Manifest Moving made my moving experience a relaxing one. They arrived on time and got everything moved in a very timely manner. I will be using them again for future moves.

Two trucks broke down on the day of our move. A 6 hour delay, but owner Ryan Carter and scheduled off helper moved the heavy stuff for an apartment move. Thought I would be getting a discount but Ryan said no charge after the move completed because of the delay and inconvenience. Very fair company and Ryan and helper worked very hard up three floors. You definitely will be our movers for future moves. Thank you Brother Bear Movers!!

Our move took way longer than it should have. 8 of my family and friends had to help out the movers in the last 3 hours because they were moving so slowly and obviously needed help. They should have called for back up or reinforcements. Though the two gentlemen were very nice and polite, they were obviously way over their head. There were multiple long 30 minutes periods in which we did not see the movers come back up the stairs. I understand that it was hot outside and it was a difficult move because there was no elevator, but I had fully informed the movers several times before the move that there was no elevator and of how much stuff we had to move. I am also very disappointed that after the move was complete, when I tried to get $100 or so taken off the $640 total for an 8 hour move because 8 people had to help the movers, the manager was not willing to budge on the $80 an hour price. Also, after unpacking, we found 2 broken dishes in a box marked fragile. They had dropped this box during the move. The movers also had damaged a hallway light in the staircase and did not say anything. Both of these incidents were witnessed by the family/friends we had helping during the move.

I had several large/heavy/bulky furniture items I needed move out of my den for a remodel. I was greatly impressed by Mitch and Brock. One item involved moving a large sofa through an expensive front door. They covered the door with padded blankets for its safety and took their time moving it. Before moving each item they would discuss among themselves how best to move them, most impressive. I will definitely use them again when the remodel is complete.

Eddie and Tanner were friendly, funny, efficient, professional - amazing. They made moving as pleasant and easy as moving can be. They didn't mind that my move took two trips to and from the old place and new place. Would hire again, and probably would marry either of them!

First let me say the delivery guys were AWESOME! They moved quickly even though their day had been excruciatingly long. The issue we had was our short 1 hr length move was scheduled between 1 and 2...it being a Saturday we knew there could be a delay, that delay however ended up with the movers not showing up until 8pm. I do not blame that on the movers at all BUT whoever makes the schedule needs to go through some serious training. And the owner knowing they were 7hrs behind due to a huge move scheduled prior NEVER called us to say anything. BUT the movers whose job is not to coordinate kept me updated every step of the way. The ONLY reason I am rating 2 stars is due to the movers being so nice in circumstances they had no control over. The fact we weren't offered a discount from management for the inconvenience or even received a phone call is completely unprofessional and a total lack of empathy.

They were on time and did an excellent job. I have had several bad moving experience in the past and An Extra Set of Hands was honestly the best. I will definitely use them on my next move.

The team at Road to Freedom is everything you hope for when hiring movers; responsive, professional, punctual, honest and really good at getting things done. They handled stairs with ease, safely moved large items, and accommodated an unexpected change. My moving experience was simply delightful! I highly recommend this company! In my humble opinion, you won't find anyone better.
