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.

The Ero team was great to work with. They moved my baby grand piano with care and professionalism. They were on time and focused on the move until it was done. I needed to move the piano to a new location quickly and they made time to fit me into their schedule. Top notch crew! Would definitely use them again for moving needs.

Pedro & Jonathan were delightful, experienced, competent & would hire them again in a heartbeat. Pedro also was very adept in driving the large truck & backing it in our driveway. The moving was done with expertise.

Melvin and his assistant arrived within 30 minutes of the scheduled time and did the entire move in 2.5 hours! They took apart the bed frame, put it back together, and even put together an Ikea-style sofa frame without having taken it apart (Melvin figured it out for me in no time!) I was pleased to see them wrap the glass top to my table before packing it. Both were very kind and polite. Easiest move I've ever done! Thank you both!

The company moved some furniture from one home into another. The team was on time, courteous, and quick. They were very careful with my belongings and of the homes they were in. Great job! Would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends.

A local move to storage between homes in the same town. It was nightmare from start to finish. Grady was hired due to 4/5 star rating on this website and high marks w/BBB. All I can say is he must have an A team and an F team, and we got the F. They were not friendly or professional. In fact it seemed like their 1st time. They didn't know how to pack the truck or wrap items. After just 2 hrs we had multiple damaged items, and we hadn't even left the house. They swore when dropping our china cabinet down the front stair( it was a simple ranch without any tricky turns or multiple flights of stairs). They were extremely slow and unorganized. They moved a piano on its side, they scratched every doorway in the house, significant damage to the China cabinet, they stained one coach and ripped the other. Pictures of damages were taken and sent to Grady while they were still present. He was accomodating and apologetic. He offered his guys and the truck for the rest of the day at no cost. The outcome was still recruiting 2 friends to help us help his movers for 3 more hours. We aren't spring chickens. I had shoulder surgery last yr, and my husband was nursing a foot injury. We hired movers because we didn't want to lift, carry, and strain. Yet there we were carrying boxes, some bedroom furniture, & all fragile/ breakable items ourselves At the end of the exhausting, disaster of a day he called to apologize & state that he had been in touch w/ his repair man who would come in 2 days to evaluate all items damaged and fix what he could. Items that couldn't be repaired would be replaced and run through his insurance. Grady was told that all items damaged were now buried in storage by his team. He responded that we should call him the week before we moved into the new home and he would send his guy to fix everything. We agreed. We then spent a month calling him. The phone # on this website said " voice mail full" or " not accepting calls at this time". Daily, for weeks. He was eventually sent an email which took him days to respond. He recalled the promise and assured us that everything would be fixed.... that he'd be in touch. More weeks passed with no call, no arrangements made for fixing, full voice mail again. Finally he sent an email response that he is no longer going to fix anything but the China cabinet as he had factored in all the other damage when he discounted the move that day. He was sent back an email response stating that was not an acceptable solution, but the repair guy still needed to come the next week to fix the cabinet, and not come at a time requiring us to miss work. That never happened. The items still sit broken, stained and ripped.
