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.

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 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.

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.

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. 

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.

Jimmy and Kevin did my in-town move this week. Couldn't ask for a better team to move my stuff. On time, quick workers, move my stuff safely, and were super personable/helpful. They definitely streamlined my move and took almost all of the stress out of it (now to unpack! haha) ... Thanks to them and Hogan's moving, I definitely know who to call in the future for all my moves!

The team came in and crushed it. Wrapped everything that needed to be wrapped going into storage. They were very careful with my furniture but also didn’t waste anytime. I moved my stuff to a storage unit. When I move into my new house I will call Moving Hogs to move us in!!!!

My experience with Moving Hogs was exceptional from beginning to end. Donald was responsive to messages, arrived promptly and got right to work. They took care of fragile items and worked with a purpose. I have hired movers in the past that moved very slowly, and that was not the case with Moving Hogs. I was impressed and have already told several people about the quality of their work.

Over all, the experience was good. The man taking care of our moving needs seemed a bit upset that we had a few other items to add to the load. We originally stated we had 9 large pieces of furniture. The move should have taken an hour at the most. When we set up for the move, we were told it was a three hour minimum to book the move. Due to this, we added about 15 boxes and a few other items. Once the mover realized that these were added he was quick to get the truck loaded and the move was done in no time at all. He was good with taking care of our moving needs. Our items were handled with care and the job was well done.

We used this company today and wow were were blown away by the service and the pricing. So many moving companies try to take every penny you have. Not this company. They moved us so fast and efficiently. The movers were friendly and respectful. Daniel was a pleasure to work with. We would recommend this company to anyone moving in the near future. Thanks again!

Responded quick to my request to move a sofa. Tim sent 2 mover over the same day I called him. They came within an hour. Friendly and quick. Moved a sofa sleeper 7 miles to my aunt's home. There we encountered an issue with tight turns around a hall where the sofa needed to go. The 2 movers helped with a plan and resolution and soon we had the sofa moved through a window. Amazing. Can't say enough about this company and crew. I will return!!! Thanks Tim.

This company canceled my move the day of the move in November 2020. I had to quickly find another company to do it that same day for double the price. Do not risk and hire!

Best experience ever. If you want the best experience when your moving contact Jason!! I had called another moving company Euro Movers that had dropped the ball the day before. I was in a serious bind. I went online and registered with movers to contact me at 5:45 in the morning. I was worried I couldn't find a same day mover. Jason, contacted me right away. He assured me he would take care of me. He delivered far beyond my expectations. He kept in contact with me and let me know what time he would be there, 9:30 am, he actually arrived at 9:00. He was super friendly, he and Sasha. He moved heavy furniture for a 3 bedroom house to my storage unit in 4 hours. His price was $279. I was so amazed with his service and care of my items and moving me within 3 hours of my initial contact. If you are looking for a reliable mover with a great price. Call Jason!!! He WILL take care of you!!!
