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.

Initially used The Movers 123 in March and again recently for an unexpected out of state move. They did an amazing job both times. Hard working people, honest and straight forward. Truly a professional moving company.

Joseph worked with me all along the way. He responded quickly. He listened to my needs and recommended specific storage sizes, prices of the move, and time-frames. The move out of my home was extremely fast and efficient. They were late to show up for move out day, but this was due to some faults detected in the truck. They ended up inspecting another truck. This proved to be the safer choice.

I hired them to pack the house and move and then unpack. They left 2 closets and four cabinets full of items at the departure house. They also did not unpack everything however they did put the furniture back together upon arrival. The movers themselves were very kind and respectful. They were careful too. They were late to showing up but stayed until the job was just about done (at least everything was in the house or garage). I wish the job had been more thorough but I did appreciate the professional manner in which the movers worked. I would hire them again for a move only. If you need help packing and unpacking they may not be your best option. My move ended up being much larger than anticipated which may have also been part of the problem.

Wow! These guys were great! The professional company that moved us down to Utah was going to charge us at least twice as much as these guys quoted and they would have taken 2 days, but these guys came and knocked it out in just 6 hours and moved our entire 5 bedroom house in from a storage unit! I even had extra budget when they finished and had them help with other move in projects before they left. Excellent!

It was a huge move and the The Movers 123 came through with shining colors They sent 4 healthy young men. The movers were all respectful and worked VERY VERY fast. I had them pack and unpack a home that did not belong to me. They did an excellent job! I oversaw the entire job. They missed a few cabinets and some garage items. The owner contacted me and immediately sent his crew to collect and deliver those items to the new address. Great experience.

I gave them 4 stars because I'm satisfied overall. The first time they came out they determined that they needed more men to move the pool table; apparently neither of the movers had experience with such a table. They scheduled for Monday afternoon/evening. I called on Saturday to nail the time down a little closer and was told that they had a 9 am job and would be at my location around 1 pm. I called them about 1:30 pm and was told that the am job was taking longer than expected and they wouldn't be able to get to me until 6 pm or so. They arrived on time with six men and successfully completed the move. I would use them again because they were careful and did a good job of moving. I'd suggest taking pictures of your pool table and texting them in so that they really know what they will be dealing with. It wouldn't have been such a pain for me if we lived at the location from which the table was being moved. I had to drive 30 minutes one way each time they planned to make the move.

They were very quick to move my one bedroom apt. I didn’t have too much furniture but it took less than two hours to get everything to my new apartment. I also appreciated their responsiveness and professionalism throughout the process. Would use them again.
