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.

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.

I strongly recommend Senior Citizen Movers. Happy with the service provided. Very efficient in moving heavy weight furniture and also made sure that furniture has no scratches while moving as they wrapped everything in several layers of cloth and plastic wrap.

They were on-time, friendly, prepared and planned moving my huge, awkward couches properly before moving them. Ron and his employee were high energy, very polite and were concerned about moving my furniture safely and promptly. I was quoted for 3 hours and it only took 1 hour! I would recommend hiring them for your moving needs.

Michael Zachary and his able assistant moved me from one 3rd story flat in Lynnwood to another 3rd story flat in Raymond, Wa. The move was made difficult by the fact that I am a record collector. The reality of this is that Michael and Mongo needed to move 18(each) 45 lb. boxes of records down stairs out of my Lynnwood flat and upstairs into my Raymond flat. But that isn't the least of it. I have many books, which also add up to some real weight. Now imagine Michael and Mongo moving another dozen boxes of books weighing similar to my record boxes. And there were several other weighty objects (that weigh quite a bit more) that made this move. Definitely, this move involved a degree of difficulty due to the stair-climbing aspect and the weight that needed to be carried. And they were game. By myself, I could never have made this move. Their truck and trailer. Their ability to navigate the move. Their ability to make the necessary lift and climb requirements made this move successful for me. The cost was fair. I'm happy and also grateful that I was able to connect with Michael Zachary for this move. Thanks guys. You are a success. -Steve

Moving with Robert was a good experience. He showed up on time and dropped off on time as well. His rate was reasonable for long distance moving. I would recommend him.

Mo and Khalid moved our stuff from our 3 floor apartment into pods that we rented to move our stuff across the country. They did a great job and they actually saved us a ton of money with their packing skills as we initially rented 3 pods and they fit everything in just 2! I highly recommend having them help you move!

The service was average but by far the best price I could find. Their movers were not very experienced but worked hard. My move out from a POD was not complicated and they worked for our situation. We assisted and got the job finished in about half the time reserved.

Juan and his team were great helping us move our 4 bedroom house into a storage unit until our new house is finished. They arrived exactly when they said they would. They worked very quickly but took great care of our stuff. They did such a good job we've already booked them to move into our new house.

I had to move my upright piano from Bellingham to Lynnwood and they were very fast at getting back to you and got my moving scheduled within short few days! They carried my upright piano down a flight of stairs with ease and delivered it with no problems at all. They got the job done in no time and I would definitely call them again for help in the future. Thank you so much!!
