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. 

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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Owner is very responsive and easy to work with. The movers however were late, didn't place boxes in correct locations, damaged my laminate floor, scratched my dryer, and not professional. One of the tougher moves I've had in a long time. The move is done and I'm glad for that. I would not recommend.

Doorite moved the pool table within the metroplex. Moses is very knowledgeable and professional. He informed us where and when the table was originally purchased. Would recommend Moses for any kind of pool table move, tear down, or assembly.

The workers were awfully slow made the moving a nightmare. 3 bed room house move and it took them 9 hrs since they were on hourly . Dinged my $3200 refrigerator and damaged a formal couch and refused to give the insurance claim information. Got hold of the person who sent the crew and he didn’t cooperate at all either didn’t send Insuarance info to file a claim. Instead if resolving they were escalating it Awful stay away. Charged me for 3 trained movers and one was still under training and not a pro. One word STAY AWAY find someone better and make moving easy and not extra stressful Update: thank you for responding back @heavy duty moving Hi there, on my recommendation my sister hired you and i was present at time of moving as well. The damage claim is still not delivered or processed i ll update my review once its done. Thanks So i hired you guys for my sister’s moving so you guys have served me . Please update on the claim info thanks

Fantastic and professional bunch of guys. I had two apartment units to move for my family within the same complex. The gentlemen were absolutely accommodative, very hard working, no breaks and were swift to move all my furniture boxes and other household items. They took extreme care, wrapped and packaged with great detail. Will definitely use them in future and highly recommend to others requiring good and professional moving service.

Completely unprofessional movers. I do not recommend their service 1. They sent some juniors to move my stuff who took much extra time that was needed deassemble and assemble to move. 2. They left quite a stuff at old house after packing it (tv, office chair etc) for which I had to hire a van to move 3. They didn’t even put back the laundry door after taking it out to move refrigerator. Even After follow up nobody went there and I had to pay someone else to put that door back 4. They didn’t pack my furniture properly and had paint and wood peeled off my beautiful and expensive king bed 5. They didnt screwed the dresser mirror properly to the dresser with couple of nails missed. This one they fixed it after my concern after couple of days 6. I told my story to that manager who promised to take care of it and it’s been 3-4 months of follow up with no response. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS MOVER !!

The guys moved the set time back a few hours last minute, that was a bit of pain but afterwards everything moved quick and they handled my stuff with care. Noting was scuffed, scratched or broken and they made fairly quick work of it. Despite the initial lag time I was pleased and would recommend these guys. With that said I did schedule the day before move so I guess I can’t be too harsh on them, but I was the one paying the bill. Only recommendation would be to hold them to their scheduled time, thankfully I had a little flexibility.
