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.

Pro movers was wonderful. We had a very bad moving experience a few weeks prior to this move so I was very nervous. Pro Movers arrived on time with a crew ready to work. They were professional and careful. I would recommend them to anyone and would certainly use them again.

I hired Just The Movers for a move for a 1 bedroom apartment move. They were punctual, friendly, and efficient. I didn’t move far, but the drop off was up 3 flights and they were done in a flat 2 hours. We did have a little damage to one furniture piece, but they were so quick to offer us options and resolve it! I’d hire again! 👍🏾

I have a 300 lb front load washer. Welift team showed up and moved it in a blink!!! Then they proceed to help me move other items. They are responsive, professional, and moving efficiently. They helped me move more than what I anticipated in 40 min, and I happily paid for an hour because efficiency deserves rewards! Highly recommend them!

This is a rare occasion where 5 stars just aren't enough! We had 3 movers move us from our second floor apartment to our new home. Each mover was so curteous and professional. These guys know how to HUSTLE! They ran up and down the stairs like it was nothing and kept that energy the entire 4.5 hour move. Their positivity never faltered--even while moving the piano. They were priced so well and took great care in everything. I love their message and would hire them again in an instant!

I contacted Joseph on Christmas day and he responded right away. I sent him pictures of what needed to be moved and he was able to give me an estimate. Joseph and his guys are very experienced and work so fast. They moved our stuff from the house to a storage unit in a couple of hours. We are very pleased with TAU MOVERS and would recommend them to anyone who needs help moving.

They are true professionals. When they got to my apartment I had much more stuff than they had anticipated. They they were short one man if he had a personal problem, and they were able to accommodate and move me on time and in a true professional manner. The two men that came to move me, were very respectful and friendly. I have already recommended them to a friend of mine that is moving in the next two months and to my realtor to recommend them for his future clients. I definitely will use them again if I ever move.

I hired "The Other Side Movers" for my move. To say that I was extremely satisfied with their service is an understatement. They were phenomenal! The arrived a few minutes early and after a quick walkthrough, they got started right away. I was impressed by their professionalism and politeness the entire time. I even noticed them jogging back and forth from the truck to the house and back. In all, they were able to complete my move of 30'ish miles in about an hour and 45 minutes which was outstanding and simply easy to deal with. They were great. They say moving can be one of the most stressful events of your life, not this time for me because "The Other Side Movers" made the transition as easy as it could possibly be. THANK YOU!

Excellent quality and good monetary rate for 5 hours of work. The move started later and took longer than anticipated due to the move scheduled previous to my appointment going over time. I don't fault them for that, because the previous customer didn't accurately tell these movers the amount of stuff they had. Only issue I saw was they accidentally dented a portion of the ceiling in our new apartment when they were tipping the couch vertically to move it in place. The dent isn't too bad, and not a deal breaker. Overall, I would hire them again.

The service and the mover's demeanors were excellent. They arrived promptly and worked hard. They were very, very careful with my things, and wrapped the large pieces with plastic to protect them in transit. My experience with movers in the past is there is an attempt to pad the charges or add extra things to my bill, but that was not the case with The Other Side. My bill was actually less than I had expected. The best thing about these movers is their mission. I felt like I was helping them while they were helping me. You can read their story on their website. Overall, a great moving experience!

These guys are on the ball. Anthony set everything up, making a potentially stressful situation very easy. He sent two movers who were hard workers, professional, punctual and personable. They did their job well and didn't waste time which I appreciated. They even accommodated my last-minute move and charged less than anyone else. Very reasonable rates. I will call Right Track when I need to move again.

Trevor and Devin helped us move our apartment. They were responsive in communication, were on time on the day of moving and did a great job. They took good care of our furniture (helped with furniture assembly as well) and other boxes. Would definitely hire them again.

I hired The Other Side Movers to move my 1-bedroom apartment into my new location. I had everything packed in boxes and ready to go for them. I had my bed taken apart and ready for them to move it. I brought my own shrink wrap/tape to save on cost. If you have your own supplies they will use them instead of charging you for theirs. Just a tip for saving a little money. Dave and his team of 5 (I was only charged for 3) nice, polite, friendly and very hard working guys arrived ready to go. They arrived a few minutes early to assess the parking lot and availability of parking. They came in assessed the items to be moved and got right to work. They had my entire apartment loaded and secured in their truck in 30 minutes. I met them at my new address and they had it unloaded,helped with assembly of my bed, removed all the shrink wrap from my bedroom set, cleaned up and gone in under an hour. The entire move took 1.5 hours. There was a 2 hour minimum and I knew that when I hired them. So this was not a surprise. Every single item was handled with the utmost care and professionalism. They even took away a large bakers rack that I no longer wanted. They were happy to have it and take it back to their facility to use there. I really like the fact that Dave jumped right in with the guys and worked along side them. He didn't just direct the move, he was in the move. I cannot express enough how appreciative I am of these guys and their positive attitudes and hard work. I highly recommend The Other Side Movers to anyone looking to move anything. They are awesome! Thank you Dave and your team of hardworking guys. You made my move a stress free one.
