Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

Hired Axle Movers on 6/23/2017 to move our two bedroom apartment to our new townhouse. They arrived on time and were all ready to go, the three movers moved really quickly and efficiently. They were friendly and took care in our possessions. Loaded everything into the truck and unloaded at the new place. We were very pleased with the movers and company and would use again if needed to move. Recommend to others to call and set up an appointment for a move.

Awesome across the board in moving my piano. They even worked through a little bit of rain. Time was taken to insure the piano was not damaged and any parts of the house was not damaged during the move. I would definitely recommend The Moving Man on any move you have and I WILL definitely be using this service for any of my future moves!!

I used the Moving Man to transport a piano I had purchased from a friend. It was a short distance move,but he handled it very professionally. He was on time and very meticulous in the handling of the piano to ensure there was no damage. I would highly recommend him for any type of move.

THIS COMPANY WILL CANCEL ON YOU ON YOUR MOVE DAY!!!! FUCKING RIDICULOUS!!!! THIS IS EXTREMELY UNSAT!! I had initially chosen them through Thumbtack because of the MEH reviews, but decided to give them a fighting chance. I gave them all the info they needed, gave them a week’s notice to prepare for the big day, and now here I am finding out on move day that THEY ARE CHANGING THE MOVING HOURS for me to evening when I booked for 10am!!’ and on top of that, actually confessing they dont even have my fucking ADDRESSES!! HOW CAN YOU GUYS FUCKING DO THAT?!?!!!! IS THIS FOR REAL?!?!? AND YOU HAVE ALL THE NERVE TO GIVE ME A VERY BAD ATTITUDE?!?!?! THIS MOVING COMPANY IS GIVING ME ALL THE ANXIETY I DIDNT NEED ON MY MOVING DAY. DO NOT!!! I REPEAT!!! DO NOT TRUST THESE MOVERS AT ALL!!!! THEY ARE UNEDUCATED MOTHERFUCKERS AND STILL HAVE THE BALLS TO ARGUE WITH ME THAT YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT WHEN YOU’RE NOWHERE NEAR THAT!!! I can already tell they wont take good care of my belongings.

I liked how quickly Kevin responded to me and how they were able to do the move the next day. However, the movers did not have masks, and I thought that was a huge oversight, as they were just moving a piano a few steps into our house, it wouldn't be any skin of their back to have a mask ready. Overall I'm pleased with the quality of their work.

Absolutely the best moving experience from the first contact throughout the move. Lamar responded very quickly to my questions before the move. He and Matt were very conscientious and careful with our belongings, navigating stairs and tight corners with expertise. They were very patient as my daughter decided just where she wanted them to place her furniture. Two very pleasant men that we enjoyed working with. I highly recommend them and will definitely call them for my next move.
