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.

The movers, Paul and Juan, were very professional and considerate of the furniture that they were moving. They were strategic in the move to maximize the efficiency of the truck's capacity as well as time. The owner, Zeke, was also very professional and courteous. He provided a courteous reminder of the upcoming move as he said he would. Moves are always stressful; Sugar Land Moving & Storage helped mitigate that stress. Definitely would hire them for future moves in the area.

Gave a courtesy call when they were on their way, to let me know their estimated arrival and that they would be on time for the scheduled move. All 3 movers were very friendly, and eager to know what all I would liked moved and if I had any special order or care instructions for my furniture and boxes. Will rehire them if I move again.

Robert and William were great! I am a total moving noob and they assisted me with packing, loaded their big truck and had me moved without incident. I had a few really complicated pieces that I wasn't sure how to move, and their experience showed, as they didn't hesitate to recommend and put into motion an appropriate and effective strategy for moving them. The move took a little longer than I expected, but overall, I was more than happy to pay them what was due and am very grateful for their service!

I've heard some moving horror stories and although there is nothing that can honestly make moving pleasant it definitely helps to have efficient movers. They were the most affordable and nice guys. My move didn't really require much travel (same apt complex) but they were nice enough to assist me in bringing my old sofa to goodwill. It was a rainy gross day and they still managed to get it done well. I'm pleasantly surprised and will use them again the next time I decide to move or anything like that.

All of the above. Compared to my last move, the price was excellent and Texans Movers were professional, very courtesy, and were very careful with my items. I used a different company before who broke several of my items and never replaced anything. I had very courteous movers and they were quick and asked questions of when it was time for placement. Use this company and you will not be let down. I will use them again, because I have business items in storage as well. Thanks Texans Movers for making moving look easy!

Had an absolutely seamless experience! They were prompt, very professional, and genuinely caring. The pieces in need of moving were fragile. Extreme care was taken in properly packing and transporting each item. I highly recommend Emmanuel Movers, Inc! I will definitely be hiring them again for my next move.

Scheduled the time for 12-1 and then moved the ETA 3 times before arriving late at 4:15. No masks, no gloves, but moved the desired unit in 15 minutes without issue or damage.

I was really impressed with A2B, had a great 2 man crew who went above and beyond to make our move successful. Unlike a lot of moving companies, they were on time which was a good start. Everything was packed well, no damages at all and they helped with a few extra things we needed. Highly recommend this moving company, very happy with their performance.

Would rate 0 star if possible! I booked the moving appointment a week ago, they called me on the scheduled moving day and told me they couldn’t come until the next day?! This is moving, it’s not something you can easily reschedule! I have everything packed in the house and they just told me they can’t come!!! DO NOT use this company! Not reliable at all!!! Horrible experience!!!
