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.

very good movers This is the best moving company that I have ever used.  Being a person that was in the military I'm no stranger to moving. This company was professional, on time, fast and very reasonable as for cost.  I'm just really happy with my move...:)

Jeno is a true moving specialist-a professional from start to finish! He arrived at the move-out site early and ready to go. We were moving a full 10' x 10' storage unit, plus additional boxes from our temporary house to a new house. Jeno was able to do the entire move in one trip, with his Tetris-like skills. He and his assistant worked quickly and efficiency, while taking utmost care in moving large items. Absolutely no nicks or scratches on any of my doors or walls after the move! Jeno has over 7 years of experience in the moving business and it shows. Working with Jeno was a pleasure and money well spent. I would definitely use Eastside Labor again.

Integrity Moving & Delivery Services is hands down the best piano moving company that I've ever worked with. The communication is amazing and their work quality is outstanding. Alan and his crew were extremely careful with the piano, my hardwood floors, and anything in my house. It was like they were moving their own newborn baby :) They were extremely respectful and so nice. I've worked with other piano movers who have struggled and damaged my piano, walls, and floors. Alan takes pride in his work and truly cares about his customers. I would not hesitate to recommend Integrity Moving to anyone who needs a piano or large item moved.

Thank you! These guys are amazing and they gave me the best price of any place else. People movers moved me into a townhouse with tons of stairs. My movers arrived early, smiling, and ready to work. They worked their butts off. It was cold but their cheerful attitudes did not changed during the entire move. These guys move FAST. In fact, they move so fast that you are better off standing back and giving them direction on where you want stuff to go. I was nervous about moving into my new place and a new neighbor gave them a hard time about my truck blocking his driveway. They just blew it off and we laughed about it for about 15 minutes. They put me at ease and reassured me not to worry about the guy. It was like moving and therapy all in one! I have recommended Vadim and Chris to everyone as the hands-down BEST movers I have ever hired and I've hired others. I'm sure they have kinks to work out in their business but it's rare to find such nice, hard workers.

Our move took significantly longer than initially estimated (by almost 3x.) Much of this was due to having a large amount of fragile and expensive furniture. However, Sergey and his team (particularly Max) worked very hard and efficiently to get it all done. Not a single thing was damaged in the move, which is quite a feat in my opinion! There were probably 7-8 different movers involved over the 3 days of our move. They were all considerate and took great care to avoid damage to the furniture as well as the home itself. On 2 of the 3 days, the guys worked late into the night (after having done another job in the daytime) to accommodate us, and they were still quite efficient. Bottom line, I was really glad to have hired them. Moves are very stressful, particularly when things don't go as planned. These guys stepped up and found the extra time and effort needed to get us moved in a very tight timeframe. Despite 3x the time and cost, I have no regrets. I would suggest, however, that if you have a large move, have them come by before the move and do a walkthrough so you can estimate the time better. I must also commend the owner, Sergey, for looking after his guys really well. He brought them food, and also was on site one evening to help out when we ended up working really late into the night (2 AM!), and then dropped them home. That's commendable in my book.

Highly recommend Brian and his company. He was able to bailed me out when another moving company left me hanging. They were thorough and made sure to protect all my belongings. Worked extremely hard and very friendly. Will use again and recommend to friends. In fact we did use them a second time to move our roommate in.

Everything is time or money.  People Movers came into my home and packed up everything in my 3000 sq ft home with meticulous wrapping and boxing.  The next day, the team, moved everything carefully and efficiently into our new home.  They were tidy, polite and in good humor.  Our things arrived intact and unmarred.  They helped assemble our bed so we had a place to sleep.  The price was a bargain for the quality of the work.  I found them to be responsive by email and phone.  Stellar service!

I bought a table that is too big for me to move so I hired them. Took the day off work to meet them at the furniture store, just to get a call that they don’t have enough drivers. Wish they told me that a week ago when we made the appointment.

Was a good experience. Only issue was they said they would bring furniture size shrink wrap and did not. Not a big deal but had to go buy it. I would highly recommend them. The movers and the people on the phone were extremely courteous and professional. And they pack a 4 bedroom house in just over 4 hours!

Affordable, friendly, efficient, careful...great movers.  I was a little skeptical when they told me they are bringing in a 3 man crew given we didn't really have that much stuff and I thought the higher rate would surely put us over our moving budget. Well, it took 3.5 hours and came in under budget. I was completely amazed they finished the job in that time.  My after thought was they could've totally just gone slower and hit the quote and made a few extra bucks...but they worked nonstop and fast.   I don't think I saw anyone of them stop for more than a minute.  They are awesome all around, plus they were great with the 500lb safe and even heavier tool box. Highly recommended.

The drivers were prompt, courteous and accommodating to our needs. They worked very hard and were careful with our things. They had a friendly and positive attitude. It was a great experience. I would suggest them to friends and family without hesitation. The price was also great. We paid less than any move I have had before.
