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.

I’m a retired Army Vet and I’m use to the military packing me up and moving everything easy and quickly. With this being my third time moving since I retired be able to locate affordable and reliable companies to move furniture at the last min is very hard to find. I had a Certain budget and Best movers 4U made sure all my needs were met at an affordable price. Movers arrived on time dressed very nice not like any moving company I’ve seen before and loaded everything in a reasonable time. Thanks so much for all your help I will only recommend and use Best Movers 4U from now on!

Item moved was a baby grand piano and the move was excellent in all respects. Great care was taken at the pick up home and the delivery home. Patrick and his men were very courteous and made sure everything was done with utmost care. I definitely will use "The Moving Men" again if I have the need.

It only let me choose three, but he and his crew were responsive, punctual, professional, and just simply amazing. With 8 household moves under my belt, I've hired a lot of professional piano movers. He and his crew are the best I've seen! Moved a 6'2" grand piano with no issues. Would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Patrick was a real pleasure in his work and demeanor. He kept me calm when I was stressing about the move and took care of all the moving, even the dreaded grandfather clock! It was a great experience, even if the last part got quite a bit stressful, but a solution was in hand and all went very well. I HIGHLY recommend The Moving Man!!!

What can I say it was an awesome experience. I called Louis on Monday and on Thursday they were there to pack, load, and unload my entire 3000 sq foot, 4 bedroom 3 story house. Trust me we have a lot of crap. It took about 10 hours but these guys killed it. All his guys were polite, and easy to get along with. The price was fair as well. We were worried that we weren't going to get anyone to move us on such short notice, or if we did find someone they would charge us a crazy amount. We were very satisfied with our experience and recommend using Scott Moving and Labor Services. We don't plan on moving again anytime soon, but if we do we will be using Louis Scott for sure. Thank you for making our move not so terrible!!!

Russ and his team did a great job. Very friendly, prompt, and professional. My only negative was that the job was not bid correctly, it ended up taking twice as long as he stated. The company did no evaluation of how much stuff I had, just asked how big of a place I was moving from. Although it ended up costing twice as much, it was still worth it.
