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.

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’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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

Reviews for Rosenberg movers
Thumbtack Customer
Texans Movers moved my daughter with short notice. They arrived on time and were extremely professional. Furniture was moved with care, wrapped when needed as were tv sets. The movers actually beat us to the moving site but did not start the "clock" until we were in the house and they were ready to start moving. There were 3 men and these guys were moving! No taking their time trying to stretch the time out. Granted, moving into the new apartment, things slowed down a bit but it was 98 degrees and my daughter was moving into an apartment on the 3rd floor! The men were very polite and my daughter and I felt very comfortable around them. The move took 2 hours and 15 minutes. She was charged for only the 15 minutes, not another full hour. I would highly recommend this company and would definitely use them again. Check Yelp for reviews too before you choose...great ratings for this company on Yelp as well.

The 3 men that showed up for our move were very kind, well mannered and arrived on time. The attitude was very friendly. At the end of the move the guys even asked if we needed anything re-arranged or placed into a different location. They were very careful with our things, and they moved at a quick pace and seemed not to be in a huge rush as if they were trying to extend the hours. Fast. friendly and well mannered. I would insist using Texans Movers again in the future if I ever need them again.

The workers were actually earlier than the scheduled time to arrive. They were very professional and provided an awesome quality of work. I would recommend the moving company to family and friends. I do recommend that some type of logo should be on the moving truck for advertisement to promote the business.

Awful experience. Movers went through my suitcases and took medication and gift cards. Their management offered me a $50 dollar check and $100 dollars off my next move to go away. Why in the world would I use a company that stole from me again??? I will do my best to share my experience so this doesn't happen to others.

I hired Melvin and his team to move me from one house to another and the experience was absolutely great. They arrived right on time and when they got there I show them exactly what I want moved and they got right to work. The team worked fast to get the job done. They wrapped every piece of furniture to keep my property from getting damaged but unfortunately two of my dining room chairs did get scratched. But that wasn't a problem because they fix the situation workout hesitation. They're extremely affordable and I will definitely be using them in the future for any other moving projects i have.

Beau, Cleo, and Shane arrived on-time and ready to go. They were professional, courteous, and worked steadily helping us pack and making sure that all items were covered or boxed. These guys really made a move from a 3 bedroom home to a small 2 bedroom apartment much, much easier for my wife, who has to do a lot more because of my disabilities! Even made a stop on the way at our rented storage unit to unload and store some heavy/bulky items. Thank you Graceful Moves. I don't plan on moving again anytime soon, but if I were, I would hire them in a heartbeat!!

So, my overall experience was good with Dynamic Movers. They were running about 25 min behind and called to let me know the morning of my move. They helped my dad clean up a wet floor involving an issue my dad had with disconnecting the kitchen refrigerator. They unloaded some items at my storage unit and then at my new residence. There was an issue with my husband's brand new credit card being used fraudulently a day or 2 after they were paid via square. So, may be a coincidence, but I know they had to key in his credit card info manually. Im not accusing the movers of criminal activity just making people aware.

The movers were good. However, I was sent the wrong price quote. Came out to be double what I was originally told. Very poor service, wouldn’t go with this company again.

Omg! Words can't express how amazing these guys were. I've used 4 different moving companies in the past 5 years, but they're the best! You definitely want them. They were kind, patient and very efficient. They wrapped my furniture, took everything upstairs and placed items in the desired rooms. They remembered and fulfilled all requests while handling items with care even when it wasn't needed. I'm a single lady, moving alone and always felt extremely comfortable in their presence. If you're on the fence, don't be... choose them. We did 3 stops, emptied storage, filled garage, filled upstairs 2br apartment, all in 3.5 hrs, I was ecstatic! I had time to get a shower and go to dinner after. No moving day has ever been better.

The guys were amazing. It was hot and they did it all with a smile. Even moving from a flat into a 2 story. They accommodated my many requests and had everything done in a timely fashion. I'll never use anyone else.

The crew did a great job taking care of my belonging, breaking them down and building them back up. The took direction well and asked question when needed. Bruce also was a pleasure to work with in the process and planning of my move.

I will start with the move - the guys did GREAT. They moved my three-bedroom house in just over four hours. It was hot and muggy and poured down rain for part of the unloading, but they powered through and did an amazing, 5-star job. So why the lack of a 5-star rating? Well, I also used AllSawa to pack my kitchen. After telling me packing materials were included, they weren't. They showed up four hours late. The guys ran out of bubble wrap after two boxes. They used all the bubble wrap I had on hand, then moved on to use my entire box of kitchen trash bags (without telling me) to wrap my dishes. Numerous dishes from those boxes now have chips in them. They packed the one cabinet I asked them not to pack and did NOT pack any of my pots and pans or anything on the kitchen counter. Based on the price list I was sent, I was overcharged $9.50 for boxes. I was charged $40 for packing materials when I (unknowingly) provided most of them. And there was a $50 trip fee I was not informed of beforehand. All in all, I spent $150 more than I was expecting, and I still had to spend time packing up all the things they left. In conclusion - YES for moving, NO for packing.
