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. 

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. 

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.

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 guys who came out to help with my move were great. They moved very quickly and got everything moved without hassle. Would definitely hire them again!

What can I say, our odds we're stacked against us with a timeline to move due to uncontrollable circumstances. Jason and crew jumped in and made it happen. We will be moving again in a year and plan on reaching out and using true move again.

I recently used Moving Hogs to assist with moving to a new home. The guys were very professional, timely, and took pride in their work. They were very efficient with their loading and unloading of my stuff. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone that is looking for movers.

This company was reasonable in their price and flexible in working with my situation. They moved a table for my daughter that I paid for as a gift. They trusted that the money would be there as I promised and even made extra effort to fullfil the job when my daughter didn't hear them at the door (they could have just gone home). The move went smooth with no issue (they were moving a table that had not been moved for approximately 19 years..there really could have been issues).

We needed help moving a heavy item upstairs & was so glad to have someone who was quick to respond and accommodating to our scheduling needs. Communication was great and we appreciated him using extra blankets while moving our item. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend this company for your moving needs, especially if you need to move at odd hours. I was desperate to find a moving company that would help us in the evening, and the first dozen companies I contacted would not schedule a move after 3pm. So frustrating! Jeff and his team were able to accommodate our needs and did fantastic work! Friendly, polite, professional and reliable. They were efficient but careful with our things and also very honest. There was a small nightstand damaged...hey, these things happen. They immediately brought it to our attention and offered to purchase a replacement or reimburse us the cost of the furniture. I have had movers lie about damaging my things and refuse to pay for it so I really appreciated the professionalism I got from Jeff and his team. Thank you SO MUCH for your help!

First time user of Thumbtack services. I was very impressed with these movers. They were prompt, on time, and courteous. The owner Greg runs a good crew. Wes and Teradon were the moving pros. They wrapped and secured our possessions and delivered them without any problems. I would recommend them and use their services again.

I really wanted to give a 5 star review, first let me say CJ was very nice and personable and a very hard worker. However due to the fact that they totally destroyed a dresser and never said a word and tried to make-shift it back together, and broke a motorized power scooter and never said a word about it and over charged me by an hour I’m not happy about. It will obviously cost me more to replace these two items than what money I saved by using them. Also I still had to go back to the house and move 3 truckloads myself that they did not move for me I did let him know it was a big move and he was not prepared for the size of move I had. Unfortunately I can’t give a 5 star based on personality.

I had to change my moving date, and they were a no show. I called and he said he forgot, but did arrange to come out very early the next morning. I had 8 heavy items Arrived on time, the next day, but had a hard time moving several of the items with the one piece of equipment, they brought. Not very professional but finally got the job done.

The movers were friendly, professional and handled our things with care. The lost stars are because they were 6 hours late for our appointment due to a previous job taking extra time. I would have thought they’d reschedule the extra job instead of putting us behind. They apologized but offered no compensation. Our estimated move time was also way underestimated. It took almost double the time quoted.
