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.

The movers were late on the moving day. Could be due to another moving scheduled on the same day. However, they compensated with hourly rate.

The actual moving process was great. However, I scheduled the movers for noon. I was told they had another move that morning and might be about 30 minutes later. That 30 minutes was actually over 3 hours. They started the move at 3:20. The movers doing the work were professional, quick, and did a great job. Just don't be the second move of the day!!

It was a rough day for everyone. Kingsley was extremely helpful and responsive with my move concerns. I'm very thankful to him for his understanding of my frustrations on my move day. I will use 123 movers if I move again.

Our daughter hasn’t yet moved with Movers 123 because of mortgage closing changes over which she has no control. Movers 123 always encourage and reschedule her move. They are most gracious and assure her they'll be able to make the move when the time comes, hopefully Saturday December 31.

On time, polite, professional, great communication and zero hiccups. This is the second time I used professional movers. The first move into my apartment it took a different moving company (on here) almost twice as long as the Movers 1-2-3 and I even have more stuff now. Great service. Will use for my next move.

Easily the best movers I have used to date. They even drove my moving truck to my storage unit and did not charge high fees. I am using them again in a month to move items out of storage. They took very good care when moving items and the movers were very friendly.

All in all a great move. Johna and Cody were awesome. Efficient, effective, and personable in the move. The package we purchased was the small move which was 3 hours for $300. Although the move only took 2 hours, we were charged for 3.

The movers were prompt, professional and performed the move EXACTLY in the time given on the estimate. They MOVED. They worked at a QUICK pace the entire time. No nicks, no damage, just a perfect move. I have moved several times and used several different moving companies, these guys blew the other companies away. At the end of the move they had the best attitude and asked if everything was satisfactory, if there was anything else they could do and were just so kind. The owner followed up with a call the next day to make sure I was happy. Now that is customer service!!!!

As good an experience as moving can be. Initial quote and scheduling with Anthony was easy, and the four hired movers were punctual in arrival, efficient and careful in moving, and friendly throughout the whole process. Very pleased with the Right Track crew, and would definitely recommend their services for a local move.

We used The Movers 123 in February to move us out of our existing home and into storage while our new home was being built and again to move us into our new place. The Movers did an excellent job for both parts of our move. They did a great job of packing, not one thing damaged after unpacking. They were so careful and respectful of our brand new home. I am thrilled to recommend them as movers. They rock!!!
