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 team did a wonderful job moving my canopy bed and dresser! They disassembled and assembled it and moved both pieces of furniture up 3 flights of stairs! I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them. Great value. Wonderful experience. Moving was a breeze.

My movers were almost an hour late. I was supposed to have 3 professional movers I had 2. They insisted on loading all the boxes first, so several pieces of furniture were just left behind. I am disabled and my mom is 72 years old. We hired and payed for movers because we couldn’t move the furniture ourselves, so we were stuck. It was a horrible experience all around and to make up for it they only gave me a 10/hour discount. The only reason this move got 2 stars was that the one young man was so professional, courteous, and friendly.

Used moving service to help my mother move to another apartment. Glenn was very responsive in answering all of my questions, even late at night. Within a week of initial contact, my mother was moved on a Saturday morning and she was very happy with how courteous and professional the gentlemen were. I would definitely contact Glenn again for services.

I requested a moving service request online this morning (2/18/21), and got a response from the owner very quickly. They arrived on the job on time and got straight to work. They were both very nice, professional and affordable. I would definitely recommend NBA movers to anyone that needs help moving. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would. 💯

These young men did an excellent job moving us. We had two stops to make along the way and they still finished in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you so much for communicating effectively, being professional, being punctual and taking care of our items during our move. We will definitely be using them for our next move and highly recommend them to others.

My movers arrived exactly on time and got right to work. They thoughtfully packed my rental truck to maximize space and were real troupers hauling all my stuff down the stairs and out to the truck on a terribly hot and humid day. They were both cheerful and polite despite the hard work. My move was completed within the estimated time frame. I would recommend We Move It.

Patrick and his guys were prompt, careful, and quick with moving my piano! They even helped me move a few extra boxes out of my place and into my car! He took on the job with very short notice and was extremely flexible when I needed to change our meet up time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding moving company!

Tetris Team was amazing! We inquired about their company the same day we were seeking service, after being let down by another company "Priority Movers" the day before. The Tetris Team promptly returned our call. Their professionalism was second to none. The work ethic superceeded the price, if I could pay them more I would have without hesitation! I would definitely recommend the Tetris Team to anyone moving or expecting to move. The pride they took in their work was OUTSTANDING!!! Hands down the best moving service I have ever had!!!!

Great guys, checked in before arriving. Didn't nick the walls with heavy furniture like other movers have. Cared about my property. Very rapid and wasted no time while on the clock. Will recommend to all friends and will be my only movers in the area.

Prime Movers USA were quick and efficient from the minute they answered the phone. They were able to get my extremely heavy piano out of my car and into my apartment in no time. I will definitely be calling them again for any moving needs.

They arrived on time and began work immediately. We had several older pieces of furniture which they handled carefully and none of our items were damaged in the move. At the new house, which is two stories, they placed everything as directed and got some larger items up the stairs without issue. Their cost was half what it would have been with any of the larger moving companies. I would highly recommend Goldstar Movers.
