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.

Reviews for Hampton movers

The moving man was wonderful and my entire move went very well. My furniture was handled with extra care and I felt confident that my items would be unscathed once the move was complete. I would definitely recommend Patrick and his company to others. If the need to move ever comes again I will use this moving company again.

We used We Move It for a local move and I couldn’t have been more pleased. They were always quick to respond during the booking process and did a great job on moving day. They were quick, courteous and best of all, nothing was damaged during the move. Would highly recommend them.

Overall, I was pleased with the moving process. One of the requests that I had when choosing a mover was that they provide a contact number so that I could speak to someone while I was deciding on which company to choose, and this company was the only one that granted that request from the onset of my moving experience. The movers were pleasant, polite, and obliged my requests throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this company, and would use them again in the future.

The experience was absolutely the best we have ever had with movers. The attention to detail was right on point both by the owner and the young men who did the moving. We could not have put our items into more capable and caring hands. This is a company you can trust to do the job right.

There were four guys that moved my 3 bedroom apartment from the 3rd floor. Out of the 4 only 2 were actually professional. John was in charge but somewhat the boss. I say this because one of his men pretty much took over the whole move which started well but ended with my storage unit being tightly packed and pretty

Goldstar Movers LLC did a great job of moving some heavy furniture for us. They responded to our request promptly within 20 min and allowed me time to shop around. They gave a good rate with no hidden fees or extra cost. They arrived and started the job on time which was great because we have to return the POD before incurring additional charges. I would highly recommend them to others and for the future when we move to our dream house. Both gentlemen were courteous and professional. Finally, they did the job with care as if the furniture was their own and for the value it was a great decision to choose them.

I hired Goldstar because I needed movers in a very short notice. I was extremely pleasantly surprised by the service I received from them. Carlos and Dante were not only on time but they work FAST and amazingly efficiently. Not only would I hire them again but I am going to absolutely recommend them to anybody else who needs movers in the future!
