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.

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!!

Choose GOLDSTAR MOVERS LLC for all of your moving needs!! The movers contacted me as promised to give me an estimated arrival time and they were spot on with the timeframe given. Goldstar Movers LLC made a bittersweet move less stressful. When Team 1 arrived and asked what areas of my home would be moved after walking Team 1 through I suddenly felt a weight being lifted. I instantly felt like we were all family. They were about their job and took care with my furniture. For your moving needs book Goldstar Movers LLC and ask for Team 1 you will not be disappointed!!

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 CANNOT TRUST THIS COMPANY!!! NEVER AGAIN!!! DO NO TRUST SCOTT MOVING COMPANY MOVERS!! 🤬🤬🤬

Everything about my experience with Off-LOAD Moving rates 5 stars: Punctual, professional, courteous, respectful, fair pricing. My job was small (moving a hot tub), but since it was important to me, it was important to them. They will absolutely be my go-to for all future moving needs. Couldn’t be happier with my experience with Off-LOAD!

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.
