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.

Jack was great at corresponding with me and coordinating the move appointment. Carlos, Chris and Chris were amazing. My best move experience And I’ll be back the next time I move. These guys carefully maneuvered some tricky spaces and put my past movers to shame. My belongings were well protected and handled with care. I’m so happy I chose The Moving Kings.

The crew was AWESOME! The guys showed up ready to work and immediately started moving boxes. I was nervous as this was the largest move I had done solo. The 3 man crew eased my fears upon arrival. Genesis moving has my gote hands down the next time I move or anyone else I know. Thanks for being professional and keeping me smiling and making this one of the easiest moves EVER!

They did a great job with our move. We moved from Austin to Kansas City. Spotted Frog did the packing and loading in Austin and I drove my own moving truck. Everything was great as we unloaded on the other end.

Miguel and his team were very professional, courteous, and handled our items with great care. I'd trust them to move fine art and collectibles if I had them! Everything was moved with such care, like they were moving their personal items. They were on time, knowledgeable, and efficient. Our move took less time than estimated and everything was checked before the job ended. TVs were plugged in and a final check of the truck by me to ensure nothing was left behind. They were very friendly, thorough, and did I mention professional? You need them for your next move- you will not be disappointed. The "big guys" aren't worth their rates or time because I've moved a lot and had them. Pad and Dollies will be my mover now wherever I ago. Thanks Miguel!

Our outstanding experience begin with Shane when we called to ask questions about our move. She was courteous and answered all my questions clearly. She helped us schedule our move in a timeframe that worked well for us. The movers arrive actually about 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Chris and Michael were our movers. They did an outstanding job and moved all of our belongings without even the tiniest scratch to even the walls. They handled everything with great care and great experience. We will definitely be using them again.

Just got my move completed today from my parent's house to a one bedroom apartment and it went great! They two guys moved everything super fast and they were very professional and wrapped my furniture and were careful with my paintings which were also part of the move. They also asked where I wanted everything placed. I will definitely use them again in the future when I move again. I highly recommend this company. The owner is very responsive to messages and keeps in contact leading up to the move day.

They moved a very awkward chest up a wrap around staircase in under 10 minutes. They came on time and responded quickly. They wore masks and were respectful of the space. Would definitely recommend them for smaller moves.

We had a professional size treadmill that needed to be moved. We couldn't get the treadmill disassembled so there was no way we could move it ourselves since it weighed 310 pounds. I put in a request and John responded quickly. He assured me that his guys could get the treadmill out of the house in one piece. We schedule a time. I had my doubts that they could do it. The men showed up and figured out how to do it. It wasn't just heavy, but awkward to maneuver out the front door. They got it on their truck and delivered it to the buyer. The movers were all very friendly and had a great sense of humour about how heavy the treadmill was. Not a Hobby Moving Company will be my go to company if we ever need moving services again.
