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.

While the scheduling back-and-forth was a little problematic, most of that was my fault for asking for a move within 48 hours. Lewis moved around appointments to accommodate us and delivered in a thunderstorm, to boot. Terrific move, super fast, and the movers were very polite and helpful. Thanks...

This company was amazing. I’ve had to move a few times in my life and I’ve never been treated so well, with such respect and care for my belongings and the homes I moved out of and then into. They addressed any issues immediately with the same respect and care. I will use Commonwealth Moving and Logistics anytime I have to move from this point forward. They are truly an exceptional company.

We hired Moving Sucks Movers to move several shelving units and a refrigerator from our house to another. They were responsive and gave us a reasonable quote. The quality of their work was excellent -- they were very careful with our items. Definitely recommend them.

Amine was great in helping me get this scheduled and was very flexible in moving my move time up in the day with very short notice. Julio and Juan showed up on time (even a few minutes early) and worked quickly and efficiently! Very satisfied and would definitely use NV Movers again!

We had a great experience with Nova Movers. The office was very accommodating during the process of setting up our move. They even offered to stop at our storage unit for no extra charge because it was so close to our house. Unfortunately, our moving day was a rainy one but the two gentlemen who were moving us didn't seem to mind or slow them down. The only complaint I have is that our end price ended up being a bit higher than the quote we were given. Overall, I would recommend this mover!

I have moved 9 times in the past 11 years, and My Movers is one of the very best companies I’ve ever hired. They were quick to respond with a quote, which was one of the best values I’ve ever received. On moving day, Denis and Samuel showed up on time, worked very quickly, and since it happened to be raining, they took extra care to protect the flooring. I’m extremely pleased with their service and highly recommend My Movers.

I'm very happy with this moving company. I'm most satisfied by the responsiveness and the delightful 3 men sent to do our move--they were extremely polite, helpful, well-mannered and respectful. I requested a non-smoking crew, and the owner kept his promise. I think we were the crew's 3rd move that day, so they were over 2 hours late, but they kept me informed, and responded to texts for updates. To make up for the delay, unknown to me, the company sent 2 trucks and a 3rd mover (we requested 2 movers and truck). The additional rate for the 3rd mover was not much more. We underestimated how much we had to move, as well. My only suggestion for improvement is to bring some floor covering to help not track mud/dirt into the house. This was the first company I've used that did not do this, and I did not think of requesting this when we hired them. It was very muddy outside on moving day. I also did not know that they only accept cash or credit card (with a 3% fee). I was able to Paypal funds to the owner, so it worked out fine. To end on a positive note, I'll say again how impressed we were with the moving crew, and that everything arrived in the same condition when it went on the truck. This shows that they took great care in moving our things.

Soo i hired VKH Movers after another company left a lot to be desired and packed. The three man crew arrived and immediately went to work. They were professional and efficient and worked straight through the completion of my move. My move ended up to me being bigger and longer than i expected but I think had i started off with VKH it would have been smooth sailing all along. Thank you VKH Movers!!!

Ray was awesome to work with. Very professional, punctual... easy to coordinate the move. There were several challenges to moving a piano to the resting location (no truck access, steep hill, narrow stairway..Ray was thoughtful in his approach and an excellent problem solver. I would highly recommend Ray for any moving need you may have.

The movers were great, took care of everything. The process was easy. My only complaint was the lack of ability to communicate with either of the movers, which led to confusion on the cost breakdown, but Amine handled it professionally at the end of the day.

Movers were on time so respectful and helpful. The job was completed 45 minutes past the scheduled time but I asked the movers to make an extra stop at my daughters to drop of f a bed and treadmill . Also the movers unlike most companies asked me where I'd like each box and put together my dining table and bed. Thanks for going the extra mile !
