Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

The best experience I have ever had with movers. Set my move up with Kingsley a week before my move, he was helpful and informative giving me excellent moving tips to prepare for my move. The team of 5 movers were skilled, professional, arrived on time, worked hard the entire 6 hours. I was impressed with the care they took wrapping and moving my furniture. There was no damage done, nothing misplaced or lost in the shuffle. The price was comparable to other quotes and they had the best reviews. I will highly recommend this team/company to everyone.

Giovanni personally came out to my home and gave me a bid the first day I requested movers bids from Thumbtack. He was professional, thorough, and gave me a very fair bid. His movers arrived on time on day of move and did an incredible job of packing and loading the moving van. At the opther end of the move, they were extremely helpful, quick, and careful with my belongings. They unloaded and placed everything perfectly for me. I really appreciate the job these young men did, and the courtesy they showed during their work.Thank you Giovanni and your employees for making what could have been a stressful moving day go so smooth and stress free. I would highly recommend New Concept Moving and Storage to anyone looking to hire a moving company that is everything they advertise and more! John Jastremsky

They are very responsive when I reached out to them. Very good communication throughout the process. The fee schedule is really reasonable given such good quality service. They tried to cater to our schedule on a Sunday morning. Worked very hard and made our moving so much easier. They made sure that our furniture and appliances were well-protected during the move. We are very satisfied with Just the Movers. Will reach out to them again the next time we are moving! Thank you Just the movers

Excellent movers. We have used them twice and our in-laws have used them once. Each time we had a different crew and each time they were outstanding. All of our moves were well organized, no damage to our items or the homes we moved to. They price that was quoted each time is the price we paid. I highly recommend to everyone who wants the best moving experience.

Cache Valley Moving was very responsive and clear with their communication and pricing. They even came out to my home a week before the move to provide an accurate quote. Excellent people, great value, and a trustworthy company.

The movers that were sent were magnificent! The young men were polite gentleman who worked very hard. They treated our homes and things with respect. They also treated us with respect. Unfortunately we were quoted three movers but only two showed up. It took longer to move but didn't cause us any issues just felt bad for the two guys who had to do all the work. Having said that, the movers never complained, just kept working really hard.

We used the Hauling and Moving team to help use move a large piece of furniture from the upstairs to the downstairs of our home. They were readily available, arrived on time and reasonably priced. The two team members were both very friendly and they took special care while moving this piece. We highly recommend them and will definitely hire them again.

The Movers we're very communicative, and helped me to move in without a hitch. There was minor damage to my entertainment center, but they discounted a chunk off the total cost without me even asking. Would definitely go with them again.

This was our first time using a moving company and we could not of had a better experience. All of the movers were kind fast and professional. Nothing was broke or damaged they even have a thrift store we were able to take our donation items to. I loved that using this company went to a good cause. I will always recommend the other side movers. Thank you.
