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.

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.

I had to move in a week, they didn’t have time but made it anyways. Then I had to move 3 days earlier and they made it happen. All around the best experience. T the team lead was very professional and great to work with. I don’t ever want to move again but if I do I will for sure use Pro Movers!

Joseph (the owner) is great to work with! He is very professional and extremely responsive. He was great at communicating every step along the way, and confirming details as the move date got closer. He's very reasonable and flexible, and is willing to work with you to find a deal that works best for you. His team is incredibly fast and made my whole moving experience so much better than any of my previous moving experiences. I was tight on time during my moving day, and was worried about getting everything done in time - JS Movers finished with time to spare, and they used the spare time to help me move additional items that weren't even initially discussed. Highly highly recommend JS Movers if you're looking for the best value and an all-around fantastic moving experience! I will definitely be reaching back out to his team for future moves.

The guys who came to move my furniture were very respectful, efficient and friendly. They moved me into my new place very quickly and they made sure that my furniture was protected. If I move again, I will definitely use Tranzambezi.

The other side movers did a great job of moving. I was in Boston over the weekend and called them the day of. I spoke with Dave on the phone and he was pleasant, friendly and most importantly dependable. He promised that they'd get me moved. He also had a crew that had extra men available to he provided them to me as a courtesy. The move went quick and easy. All the men were super nice. Would hire again.

Joseph and team knocked it out of the park. We had two houses to move and in under 6 hours Joseph and one helper took care of business. Including 2 flights of stairs and heavy couches. The professionalism and care he puts in is top notch. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second recommending JS Movers for any moving job.

I am very impressed with the moving job that Lucas provided. He communicates well and is quick to respond. It was even a nice surprise to have the stuff moved two days earlier than scheduled. I had him move a few items from one floor to another and although it doesn’t look like much, I have seen it moved on a few occasions by bigger commercial movers and he handled himself better than those other companies did. Bigger and heftier pieces of furniture sometimes need a creative outlook to make it work and he did that and didn’t get frustrated. I would highly recommend him

I had a different sort of move. The Movers 123 showed up on time, got everything wrapped and out of my house, took it to my storage unit, pulled stuff out of my storage unit, put the stuff from my house into storage and then brought what they took from my storage unit back to my house to go into my moving truck! Very quick workers-got it all done in 3 hours, including travel time! I would recommend The Movers 123 anytime!

I was enthusiastic about working with The Movers 123 after reading so many positive reviews. However, I cannot say that I had the positive experience I was hoping for. Several days before my move, I called to confirm my start time and the estimate. Though I know that no estimate is exact, I had confidence that a professional moving company could reasonably assess the time necessary for my move. On the day of my move, the movers didn’t arrive at the time scheduled. After an extended period of time, I called and was told they were doing maintenance on the truck. They finally arrived, over two hours late. The movers were very slow, and took hours longer than the time estimated to pack the truck. I paid for three movers, but do not think it would have been finished any later if I had only paid for two movers. Upon transporting my goods from my old apartment to my new apartment, the movers stopped for food. I found this very unprofessional considering that I was paying by the hour and we were already FIVE hours behind schedule. I had the phone number of one of the movers, but he had forgotten his phone charger and his phone was dead. I arrived at my new apartment and waited for The Movers to arrive, unable to get in contact with anyone. Honestly, I thought all my stuff had been stolen at this point. Eventually, The Movers arrived at my new apartment building. As they unpacked, they were BLARING music. As a result, I had a noise violation filed against me with my new apartment management company. I immediately told them they couldn’t have music that loud, but they just moved it further from the building door. They did not turn it off. I found this to be extremely unprofessional. Two of my full-length mirrors were broken. The table leg on my dining room table was cracked. My end tables were scratched. The moving process took twice as long as I was originally quoted, and that doesn’t include the fact they arrived over two hours late. I appreciated that The Movers 123 were able to arrange their schedule to fit me in, but the reason I confirmed the start time was because of other appointments I had to make later that day. Had they asked me to start at a later time, I would have planned around that. I was very disappointed with this experience.

Hire this company you will not regret it. Top notch company with excellent owner and employees. Communication, price, and talent of the movers was spot on. I've moved many times in the past few years due to work. My job has changed and I finally was able purchase my own home. I had 4 strong movers who took care of my items like I was family. I have expensive furniture and it was so well wrapped and then wrapped again. So pleased with my experience. No hesitation to recommend The Movers 123.

Parker was awesome. I had booked a moving company through a broker service before talking to him. He took the time to answer my questions and read my entire contract to show me how I would most likely be paying way more than I was quoted. I was a little nervous about sending my stuff across country (Utah to Texas) without knowing the person or working with a big moving company. I decided to go for it since he spent so much time asking me questions and showing me his insurance and the plan to get everything moved. Moving day came and he was right on time to load up my belongings. During the drive he kept me updated where they were and two days later he was rolling up right at the time we planned on. Something you could never get with a big moving company. Parker is willing to work around your needs and make it the most seamless moving process he can with little effort on your part. Highly recommend using Parker over a big moving company.

Akamai Moving exceeded my expectations! They were extremely friendly and respectful of me and my items being moved. I had a bunch of misc. things that needed to be moved all around my house and they were more than happy to accommodate my situation. They stayed until the job was done and even took a load to the dump for me! Fantastic value for what I paid. I wouldn't hesitate to hire or recommend them again if ever needed!

Akamai Movers arrived early to the job and brought extra guys to make the loading go more smoothly. They were professional, friendly, and courteous. They were able to completely load a 20 ft U-Haul quickly and efficiently so that all of our furniture and belongings were organized, secured, and padded with blankets to minimize any possible damage during transport. I would highly recommend Akamai Moving Company to anyone looking for a positive moving experience.

JS Movers came to our rescue on last minute’s notice. They responded very quickly and the owner was very kind. They do not usually work on Sundays, but they came out of their way to come and help take care of us during these crazy times in 2020. Thankful for genuine, kind, and professional people in this world. There’s no way in heck my family could do the heavy lifting that they did. Thank you JS Movers!!! 🙏🙏🙏
