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.

Reviews for Appleton movers

Badger Moving is an outstanding moving company. Tony and JJ where very careful with all our delicate items. What was supposed to be a one day move turned into a 2 day move. Badger Moving made sure that they cleared their schedule and came back the next day and completed the move. They are so friendly that when the move was complete it was like saying goodbye to family members. I would recommend Badger Moving without hesitation. If you are looking for a moving company that genuinely cares for your belongings like it was there's, Then Badger Moving is the only people you need to call.

The two movers worked very hard to get the move done in time. They underestimated the time needed and took 8.5 hours for a 6 hour job. It felt like they were moving rather slowly in the beginning. Overall positive. Responses were timely, helpful, and the value is hard to beat. Well worth it.

Pats movers was amazing! Our move into the Appleton area from another state had many obstacles and I was forced to reschedule a few times. I was so worried we wouldn’t have help unloading our truck. Even a very last minute 5 hr delay with our moving truck had me in tears and Pats moving still showed up! Last minute adjusted their schedules! I’m so thankful!! Amazing guys!

I cannot say enough about how great of an experience I had with Pat's Movin and Haulin. I called Pat on the day of my move after my original movers did not show up. I was in a panic and needed the move to happen that day. Pat asked about my move and then said he wasn't positive he would have a crew available or when but he said he would keep me updated throughout the day. Within a couple hours of our first contact, Brandon and Cole were at my apartment ready and eager to work. They explained the process well and thought it would be an easy move and would be relatively quick. They quickly and efficiently moved all of my furniture. They were pleasant the whole time and took great care of my things. After my day had started off stressful, this was so easy. This crew and Pats Movin and Haulin made moving stress free and I will definitely contact them for future moves and also suggest to family and friends! Thanks again so much Pat, Cole and Brandon!!!

Thank you to Tony, Ryan and Dan for making my move effortless! I've worked with many movers over the years and this team was clearly the BEST. They moved my furniture and took the time to do everything right. They cared for my priceless things as if they were their own. They hardly ever took breaks and I actually encouraged them several times to please take a rest! They hustled!!! I can't say enough good things about my experience and highly recommend this moving team to anyone. I had high maintenance furniture including a mahogany floor clock, large curio cabinet, china hutch and mahogany table and chairs. There wasn't a nick or ding on anything! If I ever move again, I'm hiring these guys!

I can not say enough good things about my experience with this moving company! Adam, Tony and Trey were FANTASTIC! I don't say this lightly. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to move. I was completely impressed on how quickly they had everything loaded and organized as well as the speed and efficiency of the drop off. They were polite and took great care of my belongings. I had some extremely heavy pieces of furniture and they moved them with no issues. I am spectacularly satisfied!!!

I hired Pat's Movin and Haulin to move the furniture from my 1 bedroom apartment 3 miles away to a house. The two men that did the moving called when they were on their way, they were on time, were both very professional, and completed the job within 2 hours! The quote was very competitive, and affordable. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Will also recommend!

The movers were prompt, professional, and courteous. They treated all my items with care and delivered everything intact and with ease. I would highly recommend their services to anyone and will use them again should the need arise. The owner, due to concerns I had, came out to not only review the load but help out in ensuring all the items were treated as gold. That is service! They will be my next movers for certain! B.Eidsor

The guys were nice. Showed up 15 minutes late. Both movers were younger. One was 17 and the other couldn't have been over 21. They couldn't move a few of my items because they were to heavy. Overall I'm pretty happy with my experience but if I were to use them again I would be very specific in asking for bigger stronger men. If you know you have some heavy items.

The movers were very polite and organized. They acted very professionally and handled the merchandise with care. They were quick and efficient. The only issue I had was the movers didn't call me before they came to my house and then I received a message that we would need to reschedule because they needed to leave. Everything worked out OK in the end as I was able to get home quickly to unlock the house. It would have been helpful to call the day before to ensure they had my number and be sure everything was as scheduled.

The movers were fantastic! They were efficient and still took excellent care of my furniture. I live in an apartment with particularly difficult corners to navigate, and they did not damage anything. I recommend them highly!!

They took great care of our belongings for our out of town move. Packed up and unloaded in one day which was greatly appreciated. Long day for everyone but they worked hard all day. Would definitely recommend to others.
