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.

They were amazing. They were very fairly priced, the movers were good at communicating, all of my belongings were moved quickly and safely. The whole move was done in under 3 hours. I couldn't have moved without help, and I'm so grateful I chose Family Moving.

2 movers showed up on time. Equipment was average (low grade dolly and two wheeler. No moving straps just muscle which worked out ok. Second mover was non-english speaking and as such we just pointed where to put things. Primary mover was experienced and they unloading went fine. Unloaded two U-Haul trucks (26 and 20ft) in 3 hours with our assistance. Over all we were satisfied with the service.

I had everything moved from a third floor apartment to a first floor. Appointment was 1-2 I received great work from the movers. They never stopped moving until time was up. Very kind and professional. Only problem was they were about 4 hours late due to truck problems. I had to keep following up to see how long before they would arrive.

Castle Movers did a great job. We had to reschedule twice and even though they had a job prior to ours that went over about 4 hours, they arrived with a good attitude ready to work. They went non stop and I can honestly say they took very good care of my things (not one damaged item). I hope to never move so I am not sure I will ever use them again. However, I will gladly recommend them to anyone that needs a mover.

The team did a great job moving our furniture and a million other things to our storage unit yesterday. They loaded up 2 trailers full of our things, and still managed to fit it all into a 10 by 20 storage unit. Also, they did all of this in 100 degree Texas heat. We are so grateful. I strongly recommend their services. We will definitely be hiring them again in our future move to our new home!

Let’s Move It worked exceptionally hard, went above and beyond helping us to hang our TVs also. We had the mounts ready but they supplied the muscle. I’d rate them 5 stars except they quoted 4-6 hours with 3 guys and a 26’ truck. They showed up to move a 3 bedroom, 2 living room, 3 car garage family of 6 with a trailer, not the 26’ truck. Needless to say, they worked very hard and made several trips to get it done. Fortunately we were only going a few miles so this worked out. We did have some furniture dinged up but only cosmetic issues. My antiques arrived in good shape. We have a phase II to move the garage and shed items and will call on this team again. My only advice is to make sure they really understand the size of the job they are bidding on.

Brent and his crew were awesome! They were quick, efficient, and highly personable. He made sure to go over everything that needed to be moved and made a game plan accordingly, and put out excellent work! I will definitely be using him and his crew in the future!

Due to excessive amounts of rain and the storm the morning of our move, the crew arrived about 4 hours later than originally scheduled. Once the crew arrived, they worked very hard to get the job done. I would strongly recommend to anyone and use this company again if and when needed. Thank you for getting us to the next chapter in our lives.

Will definitely be using this company in the future. the other company i had hired cancelled on me 2 hours before the move; very stressful. i reached out to Cordobe and they responded right away and told me they would try and get a crew together. within 2 hours then were able to get a crew and they did such a good job. they were quick, respectful and very careful with all my belongings.

Horrible experience! They showed up two hours late, each time saying “we’re 20 minutes away” only to call back 30 minutes later saying the same thing again. Despite this, they had a bad attitude and refused to adjust our bill in any sort of way. I asked for a receipt and was told they didn’t have any but would email it and they never did. Online it looked like a professional operation. Ended up being two random guys who really messed up our move. Also online it said that they follow Covid guidelines and they did none of that but compared to how bad everything else was that was the least of my worries.

The team was awesome. They arrived on time, and were eager to work. They bring padding, and wrap all the items for you. They were kind, polite, friendly, and extra careful with our belongings. They even put my bed together, and went above and beyond to meet our needs. I look forward to working with them in the future. Thanks Matt and team. Update: We asked the team to return to help us with more moving in our home. They arrived on time, and worked hard until they left three hours later. I appreciate their time and kind words each time we have hired them. You really can't go wrong with this company! Thanks NorthernStar!
