Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

Should I buy moving insurance?

Your homeowners or renters insurance policy may or may not protect your belongings if they get lost or damaged during a move. If you’re moving valuable items, or if you’re moving a great distance, it could be a good idea to invest in moving insurance.

Interstate movers are required to offer you full value protection and released value protection to help reimburse you in case of damage or loss. If you’re moving within your state, check with your state’s consumer affairs agency to see if your state has rules and requirements regarding moving insurance and valuation coverage.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

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.

This is by far one of the best moving experiences I’ve ever had. The two young men showed up when they said the would and they worked their butts off like no one’s business. If you are looking to move anytime soon don’t mess with the big guys get JB Mover, they are hands down the best!

Friendly, fast, and professional movers. They showed up on time and handled my things with care. Price was reasonable for an interstate move (Arkansas to Texas). Price was a 1/3 of what I was quoted by two other competitors. I would use MaxForce again.

All team members involved with my move were incredible. Starting with Jonathan who made the appointment set up so easy. He went through all my options with me and was incredibly helpful. Next were the packers. These ladies were so quick and efficient. And finally the movers, all very polite and professional men. This is my second time using this team and it definitely won’t be the last.

Pick the Pink Shirt Crew! 100% A++ service! I needed immediate/same-day service. Mike was on the job within 4 hours of initial request. Worked my small job in between two other jobs. Friendly & professional. Mike & crew padded and wrapped large furniture before moving. Communicated in a very timely manner with updates on estimated arrival time. Arrived with a smile, worked quickly & the price was completely right. THANK YOU Mike’s Moving!

They were on time, worked quickly but carefully, and were finished ahead of schedule. I highly recommend them. They are a bit slow with responding and working out the details of the move, but we got it done and once it was scheduled the execution was amazing!

After dealing so many folks online that have only one hidden agenda, $$$&$ Mikes Movers did the most outstanding job on moving my things. They were so careful in a professional way, as to not put even one tiny scratch on any of my things wrapping everything in blanket and clear wrap. Our appointment was a 5 pm, but they called me at 3:00 to tell me they had finished a prior move and that they could come right away if I wanted them to. They came promptly at 3:30 pm, and although their normal fee is $95.00 and hour, they didn’t drag around even one iota. They all knew what the next step would be like a true team. And those of you that aren’t familiar with the value of a team working together, call these movers on your next move and witness efficiency. I promise that you won’t be sorry. And they were completely done at 4:30 pm. And, the team was so efficient, they didn’t even break a sweat. Every move they made counted. I can’t say enough to tell y’all how pleased I was with the crew. Although, I only owed them for one hours work, I didn’t hesitate to ask the manager if $200 would be ok. And I was glad to pay them an extra $100. Actually, they did a $300 job, or more, and with complete courtesy. Folks, with the high number of bad businesses out there today, that when done dealing with them, you felt like they trampled over you and stole your money, and folks,,I don’t have to tell you who they are, you already know. And truthfully, credit is due where credit is. I never exaggerate and my promise will always be done. I WOULD’NT HESITATE TO DO BUSINESS WITH THIS BUSINESS AGAIN !!! And, since I’m living here temporarily while my new home is being built outside of Westfork Arkansas, when it’s done, I’ll call this business again. In fact, I’ve already told them that they’ll be doing my move from here to my new home. And, I can relax now and have one more thing not to be concerned about, during this perilous time with the Covid 19 breathing down on us. Thank you so very much My Lord for taking care of me again.

My wife and I were very pleased with the quality of the move. Every piece of furniture was handled with care and meticulously wrapped for protection. My only problem was being an hour and 15 minutes late which really put a kink in our schedule for the rest of the day. But alas, Mike and Dusty worked quickly but carefully to set up the furniture, which required some reassembly, and it came through without a scratch. Mike and Dusty were respectful of surrounding property. They were friendly and worked efficiently and made sure we were satisfied with everything that they delivered. I would use them again.
