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. 

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. 

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.

"I could not have been happier with my move! Because my house sold before it was even listed, I will have to move twice. I have already booked Two Men and a Truck and the same men who moved me before for my second move in a few weeks!" Moved from a 2 bedroom into a 3 bedroom home. Company provided us with 3 movers. They moved us efficiently and treated our items as if it was their own. Were very receptive to placing large items into specific areas of a room. Even put together our bed frames. Would hire again in a second.

Moseley's Movers called and said they can arrive earlier than planned, which worked out well for what we needed moving. The movers were very friendly and helpful, and were careful of what needed lifting (very heavy!) Would gladly refer them again.

My wife and I used this company to move our belongings into a POD and later move our things into our new home. We had an excellent experience and recommend this company highly. We needed to change our move date at the last minute and this company was very flexible, accommodating, and responsive. The movers were very professional and treated our belongings with care and respect. Make the right choice and go with this company!

Jet Movers has moved me 10 times and they were a local Spokane company when they started, now national yet their professionalism and care have not deteriorated ONE BIT. I truly cannot say enough good things about them from the booking team to the movers - they take the stress out of a terribly stressful event. The movers are always friendly, professional, careful and efficient. LOVE love love them.

I hired Jet Movers via Thumbtack short-notice in late November and was grateful they were able to move my belongings on the day I needed to move. I hired a truck with 2 movers with all the amenities as described by Anna Nemykina, the Jet Moves representative, whom I communicated and coordinated the move with via Thumbtack's instant messaging system. I agreed to 2 hours minimum (to be billed in 15-minute increments thereafter) at $80 per hour cash plus the $50 fuel charge (since my move was in the 16-30 mile range). My move was on 11/29/16. I received a call from Jet Movers Spokne office at 2pm saying the movers and truck would be at my place by 3:30pm. They did not arrive until 4:45pm. Jet Movers moved my belongings in 2 hrs 26 mins and charged for a full 3 hours, not in 15-minute increments after the minimum 2 hours as agreed. I paid cash, because rates were lower if paid in cash, and the movers did not have change. At the end of the move, the gentleman driving the truck asked me to sign the Service Agreement, Damage Report, and Work Order and told me I would receive a copy of the documents via email. I still have not received these documents. I contacted Anna Nemykina via Thumbtack's chat immediately after the move on 11/29/2016 for a resolution to the cost discrepancies (what was agreed upon vs. what was actually charged/what I had to pay). On 12/2/16, I was told that the manager would contact me directly. That has not happened yet. Between 12/2/2016 and 12/21/2016 I have tried to call the number for Jet Movers provided during initial contact but there was no answer and no return call for the message I left. I have also tried to contact Thumbtack's customer service line via phone but was unable to reach an actual person to speak with. On 12/21/2016, I messaged Anna Nemykina again via Thumbtack. She told me the "head manager" would contact me "tomorrow" (Thursday, 12/22/2016), but I still have not heard from them via phone or email, today is 12/27/2016. My biggest complaints are the lack of communication between the home office in Seattle (the movers told me they are in Seattle) who coordinated the move and the actual movers in Spokane and the fact that I have yet to be contacted by a manager after nearly a month (I have been lied to twice about being contacted). This is quite unprofessional. Though they were able to move my belongings short-notice, customer service is still necessary. I have waited this long to write a review in hopes of reaching some resolution, but I have not received quality service from Jet Movers.
