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 Morgantown movers
Peter H.
Darnell and crew did great work for our in-town move--I highly recommend them! They showed up exactly on schedule ready to get started, were friendly and easy to work with, and moved and packed everything from our 2300 sqft house carefully and super efficiently. And their rates are easily competitive with any other movers in town. A great moving experience overall!

Hired them for a move down some narrow stairs, and had to have them disassemble my speaker system, a move in that took me and my friends about 5 hours took them under 4 hours, and that was inflated due to me not ordering a bigger truck. They are quick professional and the prices are incredibly fair. I recommend ordering a Uhaul yourself if you are doing a small local move, but if you grab the truck, they will do everything else at a great pace. Would hire again in a heartbeat.

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND MOVERS and SHAKERS! Darnell was quick to respond to emails and called us and arranged a move into our new home 2 days later. We cannot thank them enough! He was to meet us at our storage unit at 9. He was early, messaged us to let us know and had 2 guys with him to help. They were extremely polite, hardworking, professional and personable!! If you want a great crew of guys to help you make your move. Send Darnell an email. You will not be sorry!

They were amazing! When my original mover fell through the owner was quick to contact me and the price was reasonable. They were punctual and ready to go in the AM. Everything arrived in the same condition as before. They worked hard to get everything to the top floor! And were flexible when it took longer than expected. Thank you Movers & Shakers!

Incredible experience with Mover & The Shakers. Initial response time from when I submitted my request was 10 minutes and this responsiveness was present for the rest of the move. They made sure to touch base on several occasions to ensure a smooth job. They arrived 10 minutes early and completed the truck loading within 30 minutes including lifting my washer/dryer set with ease and without the need of a hand truck! Overall I'm extremely pleased with their service and wish I had them for the second part of my move which was in a different state (took over an hour to unload and they came late.) Thank you again for a job well done!

Their two person crew moved my challenging, heavy antique pieces with care and control and were very alert and careful to the rest. They were empathetic and professional to my situation.

These three dudes were phenomenal. I didn’t sleep last night because I was stressed about moving my huge, leather, double lazy boy couch out of the truck, into the house and up a flight. That worry was wasted because Darnell Poole’s company took care of everything and were so efficient. I will recommend them any time I can. 5 star rating FOR SURE! thank you, Movers and the Shakers!!!

I do not understand why this company has such great reviews. We hired them to move two houses into one house locally, in addition to one item picked up in a neighboring town about 20 minutes away. We did not have them move any boxes, only large items. First, they don't start their work day until 11 am, which in my opinion is setting yourself up for failure when you have such a large move. Then they showed up an hour and a half late due to truck troubles. It took them 2 hours to load into their truck the first house (12 items). They stated that the truck was full and would not have room for the second house at this time, so we headed to the one item 20 minutes away. It should be noted that the truck was not loaded to the ceiling and the second house should have fit. After picking up the item, they took a 2 hour lunch break (luckily didn't charge me for this.) At this point it is after dark on the coldest day of the year. We finished unloading the truck around 7 pm, with the other house still not visited. At this point I was extremely disgusted with their work ethic and efficiency as they were working at $100/hr. They offered to go and load the other house, which had more items than the first. I however was not willing to pay them $100/hr to work until midnight. I had hired a moving company as my husband had back surgery and shouldn't be doing heavy lifting. We however had to move the other house ourselves. Extremely disappointed in this company. They are not professional and not efficient. I would highly advise against hiring them.

I would highly recommend them as they were very professional and efficient you could tell they really know how to move people. I was not really ready as much as I should have been and they just made it happen and did an excellent job. They were very careful and even helped pack some things. I had a lot of anxiety about the move and they made it very easy for me. High skill level and very nice professional people. I got a great value and met some wonderful people. Highly recommend without any reservations! Thanks guys!’

We planned for them to be at the apartment at 11am. The night before he called saying if we could change to 6pm, which I had no problems with. Around 7pm he was not at the apartment yet. I called wondering when he would show up and at that time I was informed the truck broke down and this issue put them behind schedule. I was not happy that I had to call to find out that he would only come the next day at 7am. I asked for a discount since I would have to pay for staying an extra day at the apartment and he said we could talk about it in person. He brought 3 movers and they did everything in 3 1/2 hours and charged us extra 50 dolars because he said he had more than it was expected. However the price was for 4 hours, but he claimed it was 4 hours with 2 movers only. I never requested for the 3rd mover and if he handn't been late I could have used the 4 hours with 4 movers and asked for friend's help to finish what was not completed. It was not a good experience at all due to poor management on this companies part. So we paid extra 50 dollar a day late and had to spend more money paying for an extra day at the apartment.

They were great. I didn't believe that all of my belongings were going to fit, but they were confident and made it work. It was hot and muggy and the move entailed bringing heavy boxes up several flights of stairs. They remained good-natured and professional throughout. Thank you Darnell and Stephan!

Darnell and his team showed up right on time. They were all very friendly and professional. Communication was good between the team as they planned how to move the large, heavy items. They did everything I needed quicker than we anticipated. I highly recommend and would not hesitate to use them again.
