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.

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.

This moving company was awesome the movers were courteous. The price was right. The movers arrived on time. I originally hired another company for my move but after receiving a few more quotes on thumtack I chose this company after speaking with Corey the owner. He was very professional and dedicated to providing an excellent customer experience. I will use this company in the future.

I immediately got a response when asking about a quote. Since this was my first time ever using a moving company of any kind, of course I had a few questions about the whole process. Arthur was more than happy to answer them all and give me plenty of advice for the move itself. I would highly recommend using Secured Moving Company for your next move.

Matt, Benny, and Josh were polite, hard working and skillful at moving our home. They were very conscientious of their time and complied with every request we made. It was a real pleasure working with this team at Northern Star Moving.

Castle Movers moved my great aunt and sister into their new home. We added 2 additional stops to the route to drop of furniture and pick up additional pieces. It was not a problem for the movers, Mario and Adam, to do. They explained everything upfront and asked many times for our input so it was done to our expectations. We were also so very appreciative of the care they took with some 80+yr old pieces. They were awesome and I would recommend to anyone.

Michelle and her team did a phenomenal job with TWO moves for us on two weekends back to back. We were unsure if they did moving jobs or focused on junking due to the business name but they handled our furniture and breakables with excellent care. They were extremely punctual, professional, friendly, and efficient. We will definitely hire them again.

Let me first start off by saying everything was wonderful until moving day. Granted I changed our schedule several times due to closing on our new home but always informed Frank several days ahead of time. Fast forward to our set moving day. Arrival 12-2, was the time set. 1:45 received a message crew was wrapping up their first job headed my way. 4:41 I Send a message asking ETA, still on their way. 4:50 they will be here in 5-10 mins, the guys phone broke and he wasn’t able to get in touch with me. Keep in mind there’s 3 grown men on the truck and no one had a working cell phone supposedly. 5:30, I send a message I was concerned about the whereabouts and losing confidence in the company. Also tried calling Frank and no response. He calls me back at about 6:00, guys should be pulling up. The guys pulled up at 6:03, to move a full 3 bedroom home with boxes. At this point we had made an agreement to turn the guys around and we would start at 9am in the morning. I agreed. I didn’t ask for any excuses expecting him to Handel that with his crew. He sent me a text asking if they can go ahead and get it done since they were already at my home. We agreed only if it was done correctly and not rushed. Once we agreed the guys sat in the truck for one full hour popped open the hood and pretended like the truck was broken. He came to my door and said he didn’t feel comfortable driving a truck that all of the sudden from one job to the next had major brake problems. But when I said okay that’s fine we will shoot for the morning time frame miraculously he felt safe to jump in the truck and take off. So back to me agreeing to the morning 9am appointment. I send a text to Frank hey it’s 8:45 are the guys on their way? He responded exact words here: Yes that’s why we wanted to bring the Bigger black truck, but we got brake problems when we reached your place yesterday. You told us that we are going to be doing only 1 trip anyways. Usually it takes about 2- 2.5 hours to load the truck and then the drive time plus about 2 hours to unload. So we should be good if we start a bit late. It’s just been a crazy and we apologize for all the things. We really want to help you with your move as this is our business and that’s how we make a living. The truck situation is not in our control. Please bare with us and we will take care of you. I told him okay, sure I need to run to Plano I’ll be back by 12. He said sure go ahead take your time. We will wait for you. I’m rushing from plano back to Weatherford. And this is the exact text I get: Hi candace, We have a big problem with our truck and it’s going to take a couple of days to fix it. As much I hate to do this, we might have to cancel the job bc our truck is out of commission. Not only that we have to cancel our job for tomorrow as well. Sorry for the inconvenience as we are at a loss as well. We had to waste our gas, and payroll yesterday as well and rescheduled our other jobs that we had planned for today to finish your job. This to me shows me that his business is not based on integrity. Frank has another truck and good business he would have offered his other truck and made 2 trips without charging me the second trip for all the inconvenience. Instead I have wasted his time and money. Me not his guys or his poor scheduling. I would think twice before hiring these “kids” to move your home. He wasted 2 complete days of my time. We were having our lights turned off based on our moving company showing up to move us. We now have had to get a hotel and hired a well known company to get us taken care of tomorrow on short notice. Be careful who you chose, we learned a lot about hiring a smaller company with no website and poor communication.
