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.

Reviews for South Jordan movers

I am happy that I chose Movers 123. I had to move from a 1 Bedroom Apt on the 3rd floor to another 1 Bed apt on the 1st floor. 2 movers came in and moved all of it in 2 hrs 15 mins. Amazing that they were so efficient in a tiresome move.

Kingsley and his team of movers were exceptional. We booked them for 7 hours to move our 4 bedroom home. Not only did they finish the job in less time, the entire move was flawless. It is refreshing to work with a company with such high standards. No hesitation to recommend this company. They will be the only movers I use.

I have completed over 6 moves myself and using professional movers, and after using The Movers 123 I will never use any other movers (including doing it myself). They are unbelievably outstanding. Our moving team consisted of 4 men, the team was excellent. It took 2 truck loads (1 for our home, 1 for our storage unit) to get us moved into our new residence. The team worked hard until the job was complete. They hung our TV's, hooked up our appliances, all at no extra charge. Everything went right, they know what they are doing. The price was the best I found and there were no hidden fees or extras tacked on at the end (with previous movers there have been fees added at the end). The team was polite, professional and so much fun (yes fun) to work with. Kingsley who coordinated the move was easy to work with and runs a really good business. If you want the best, to be well taken care of and have a stress free move these are the movers to hire.

Ryan, Mark and Pati came out to help us move. They were incredibly friendly, efficient, took great care of our belongings and were hilarious. I hate moving and they genuinely made it a fun experience. My wife couldn't say enough nice things about them. When we move again there's no question my wife and I will ask for them. Best moving crew I've ever seen!

They did a great job, didn't give me a set quote before the move and it was more than they quoted while in the middle of the move by $200. Outside of that no problems just the lack of an estimate or guidance.

This was our second time using The Movers 123 and just like the first time last year they did an incredible job for us. The first move was from our home to storage while we waited for our new home to be built. They packed our household professionally and got us stored for several months. For our second move they moved us from storage to our new home. All arrived in perfect condition and they made sure to protect all of our floors, walls and new stamped concrete outside. The price was really reasonable especially considering all of the hard work the team put in. We absolutely love and recommend The Movers 123.

James and his crew were very professional and provided excellent server to move my stuff from Salt Lake to St. Louis. I had some heavy furniture to move and not once they have shown any frustration and handled the situation with a smile. I am glad that I have hired then for the move. No surprises, very responsive and provided the services promised.

They 4 man crew led by Andrew did a terrific job. After 30 years in the Air Force and 16 moves I would put this move up toward the top for quality of service, professionalism and care of our household goods. They hustled but with care like they were moving their own property. I would higher them again in a heartbeat--highly recommend them to others desiring a local move. I recommended the company to my sister and she thought they were fantastic in moving her items from one house to another with an interim stop at a storage unit for pickup of additional items! Well done TOSM--keep up the good work! Mike

I hired 123 Movers to move my stuff from one apartment to another (smaller) apartment. The three guys that showed up were friendly, respectful, and extremely careful with my things. The job was finished quicker than expected and nothing was damaged or crushed. I was charged more than a fair price and am completely satisfied with my experience. All of my correspondence with the owner, Kinglsey, was friendly and professional and he was always great to respond. I'll definitely hire this company for my next move and will recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic moving company.

I was unable to personally be at my house for the move, so I’m just going on the opinions of others who were there. They said they were awesome! I do know that they were fast and a good value for your money. Brett was super nice. My only complaint was that they were hard to get in touch with to confirm my move. But during the move Brett kept me informed of their progress which was really nice. I would hire them again!

5* doesn’t even begin to give these guys the credit they deserve. Throughout our entire move, they were extremely communicative, courteous and did a phenomenal job with our move. They were extremely quick, and didn’t sacrifice quality for speed. All of our items made the journey without any issues and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. I’d recommend Red Barn to anyone looking to move and will be doing so myself with the people I know.

I will move just to have the opportunity to use them again. Ok. Not really but if I ever do move again I will use them. They were fast. Handled everything with care. I didn't make it easy for them either. My house closed late so I didn't get the keys right away. Then I had to have them back to move the other half of my belongings from a storage unit. They still finished fast and efficiently. Amazing bunch.

We hired Red Barn Movers again because of how well they took care of us the first time. And they were just as professional, efficient, and friendly as before. They asked where we wanted each item delivered, they moved our large storage shelves to the basement without a scratch or dent, they set up our bed frame, and they did it all quickly and efficiently. Thanks for taking such good care of us (again)! We'll be recommending you whenever our family needs a mover.

We loved the movers 123 from the first call to the last item off of the truck. Their staff was polite, clean and easy to communicate with (no barriers). The prices were fair and they provided me with a very helpful moving checklist. They brought all of the boxes and supplies needed which saved me a ton of time running around. They protected our doors, walls and floors and all of our items. They definitely hold themselves to a much higher standard than other moving companies I have used. I HIGHLY recommend them.
