Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

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 I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

I had an excellent moving experience with Ramos Moving's movers. The movers were respectful and helped me install my washer and dryer on top of moving it in. They went the extra mile. We had one issue with moving an item, but it was taken care of rapidly and professionally. This company is an example of customer service as it should be.

I hired Move Pros for a local move and was completely satisfied with the results. Eduardo, Cris and Tony got me moved out of my rental and into my new home in a few hours. If you need a quick, affordable move check out Move Pros.

From the initial phone call to set up our moving date and time with James, the text confirmation one day prior to our move to the Movers (Rick & Martin) assigned to us, all things combined made for a very successful, NO stress move! On time, professional, courteous, quick, friendly and reliable....the perfect type of movers to work with during a move. We highly recommend Ramos MOVING Company!

I moved literally 2 large items (a treadmill and fridge) down 2 flights of stairs. The move was less than a mile away. I requested a 2 person job and the person arranging the move (Gia) said it is a 3 person job. During the move,only 2 people were moving the items. The movers came within the arranged time frame, but I feel that I was misled to believe I needed an additional person. I sent pictures of what needed to be moved during my job request, and on the morning of the move the people asked me again what I was moving and where my addresses were. It seems that there's lack of communication of the jobs. Also, during the move, the 3rd man asked me to move a fairly light mirror that I wanted to move as well. I told them that I paid for moving services, so I asked him to please handle it. I am moving from a temp apartment to my home, and I will not request Movers of San Antonio for the job.

I received accurate professional moves to move my belongings from one apartment to another. They arrived early ready to start moving as soon as I was ready and did not stop until the move was complete. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone planning a move, and I have.

The movers were great! The only bad thing about my move was that they were 2 hours late. This was not the movers fault but their supervisor who over scheduled but once the movers got there they were fast, careful and great!

I recently used Movers of San Antonio to move (my first time using movers) and it was worth it!, The movers jumped right in and got down to business right away. When we got to the end destination, they were just as efficient moving things in and even took care of moving some furniture between floors. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone looking for quality service, and efficient, hard-working movers.. Kudos to this business for nailing it.

The moving crew was on-time, in uniform, very professional, and very efficient in the move. The 2 man team was very polite and respectful of my things and moving locations. Guardian Moving is now my moving company of choice for the San Antonio area. The overall experience exceeded my expectations and was worth the cost.
