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.

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’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. 

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

Reviews for Everett movers
Amaris O.
Honestly do not hire. Go with Moving Clear if you can. Trust me. You won’t be disappointed. Don’t move with this company: their communication sucks, they don’t listen to the customer, and some of my furniture was damaged in the move. They are NOT professionals! Go with professionals!!! There are other companies. DO NOT PICK MOVING BAND. You have been warned.

Mohammad and team are very punctual and got our move super smooth. I was very doubtful about the truck size since the number of moving boxes got increased in the last minute but the team did a very great work of packing it better. All the items are moved safe and folks are patient enough to place the items in the suggested rooms at the destination. I will definitely recommend them for the move.

The moving team was very responsive and made themselves available for a last minute request. They moved a very heavy upright piano, and I appreciate the care they took.

We just moved and had a fantastic experience with People Movers. They were very careful with all of our stuff and even helped move in our new washer and dryer when the other delivery guys couldn’t figure out how to get the appliances upstairs. We’d highly recommend using their service, it’s worth every penny (which their pricing is very competitive to other moving companies)!

Many things that could have been moved were left behind for us to move. Guys were in a big hurry to keep the time at 5 hours especially when it came to unloading

The team showed up on time, took care of not only the items moved but also the house. The items were very heavy and awkward, but they managed the move well. I would use them again.

Roberto didn't show up for a confirmed appointment for our move and didn't respond to my texts. I don't understand because our previous move with him was great. We're extremely disappointed and inconvenienced.

Let’s Move, did a great job! They moved us out of three storage units and unloaded everything to our new home, over 50 miles away. It was a great experience and would highly recommend them.

We had Airus move my adult daughter and children out of our house into her own apartment about 1/2 a mi. away. They were fantastic! Everything was moved very quickly and safely and the gentlemen were very nice. We did not use packing services, just moving. They did also move items they put on their truck as well as unload a UHaul we had full of storage unit stuff. I can’t say enough good things about this company. Don’t hesitate to hire them!

I am so glad I went with Millennium movers! Josias was my first contact and I had a ton of questions. Courteous and quick on the responses, which I really appreciated. When I got my confirmation call, again I had a ton more questions, again kind, professional and made me feel completely comfortable with my move. I knew my anxiety over the move wasn't going to come from the moving company. When Marcus and Jacovias showed up, they got straight to work. By the time they left I felt like I'd known them forever. Got us moved, made us feel comfortable and just what we needed! Thank you

The movers were great. I was worried about a possible lockdown with this awful virus, so without warning I asked if we could move my date up to “tomorrow “. They didn’t hesitate and set my date to the next day.

Thanks for all of your hard work! Things were very simple from the start - from my near last-minute inquiry and on time arrival. The move itself was anything but easy as they moved us from a 3 story townhouse into our 2 story home with some difficult pieces of furniture.. we couldn’t have been more thankful for their hard work and seeing us through this move.
Judith J.
This was the best furniture move we’ve experienced. They arrived on time, and was able to figure out how the move our furniture through our tricky house layout. They went above and beyond our request. We’ll absolutely book these guys again.

Juan and his crew were beyond AMAZING! They did a fantastic job! They ensured that everything they transported was safe, secure, and undamaged. Juan said on the phone that he would arrive at 9 am on Saturday and sure enough they were outside my door at EXACTLY 9 am. Talk about punctuality!!! I was truly impressed. They moved super quickly too moving my two bedroom apartment in 1 hr and 36 minutes! This was great because we moved so fast that we didn’t have to concern ourselves with blocking neighbors trying to leave (most of my neighbors leave around 11 am on Saturday mornings for errands). When they got to the drop off location they quickly assembled my beds, crib, and dining table. They removed all plastic wrap on furniture and even asked if I needed anything else from them. I moved from Everett to Arlington. They started at 9 am and were DONE by 12:47 pm. Talk about speed and professionalism!!!! They moved QUICK. I will be hiring again for my next move. Highly recommend!!! They were also super nice, their price is affordable, and they were amazing! I’ve moved with many companies in past years but Juan and Moving Clear are by FAR the BEST. Hire them! You will not be disappointed.
