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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

Rodolfo and Manny did such an amazing job on my move from Concord to Fremont. Worked very quickly and were extremely attentive and careful with my belongings throughout the entire move. I know how hard moving is, but they made it seem like a piece of cake. The entire experience (starting with a phone conversation with Joe to the actually moving portion) was professional, pleasant, and simple. They took away the headache I always associate with moving! Would 100% use them again, and 100% recommend them to anyone looking to hire a moving company.

This was a really smooth move. Thank you!! Even though it was a really small move (a few pieces of furniture and a couple boxes going five miles), three men showed up and completed the move fairly quickly. They were really professional and efficient.

I was having shutters installed and needed furniture moved away from windows and then moved back after install completed. Jiri and Jesus showed up right on time, moved the furniture and then returned after project finished. The furniture was VERY heavy and they did a really good job. Very considerate, mannerly. I would highly recommend them.

I had an urgent and small move. William was able to accommodate my move with just a couple hours notice. He was very communicative and transparent. He gave me an estimate with possible additional minor charges depending on how much breakdown was needed ahead of time so there were no surprises. William and his teammate were on time and super professional. Even though my job was small, it didn't feel rushed. Having had a mixed experience and some damages from the last company I used, William restored my faith!! They were careful with my items and got them moved where they needed to go and went above and beyond to set them in their new place. I would absolutely call William first to move again and or to have items moved in my current space. Excellent service from William at Mad Movers!!

This team of movers were amazing. They were professional, hard working and down to earth. They provided mattress cover free of charge which was above and beyond their responsibility. They made the move smooth and easy to storage and I will definitely call them back to move us back home when the remodeling is complete. I would highly recommend them with no reservation.

Working with Hassle Free Movers was absolutely hassle free! We had a short range, full 3br/2ba short distance move (10mi) and they handled our packing and moving seamlessly. We handled our glass out of paranoia, but seeing them work next time will trust them with the fragile stuff too! They were right on the money with their quoted time, had a worker cancel that morning and immediately had a replacement come within an hour or so, and didn't gripe or complain when we had a very difficult unload location up a hill and two flights of stairs. Imagined all kinds of horror stories from bad movers, but these guys were right on the money!

By far the hardest working movers around. They helped us pack and move our entire apartment to a new home. They worked hard and worked quickly. Not only did they work nearly nonstop, but they helped us remove old furniture and helped us build our current furniture. 10/10! Amazing and friendly service!

I am eternally grateful for One Step Movers coming to my rescue. Faced with a last minute cancellation by another move service, I submitted a request for same day assistance with moving a heavy, fragile object, with little hope anyone would be available to help. The request was submitted at 6:30am for 9am pick up, same day. I was so thankful to receive a call from Naido within 15 minutes of my submission. He was friendly, empathetic of my situation and quickly conveyed a sincere level of confidence. He communicated with me several times, providing updates for his ETA for pick up and delivery. The fragile item was picked up and delivered with care. I would happily hire One Step Movers again!! Thank you Naido!!

Jiri in the office quoted 2 men for $80 an hour, or 3 men for $105 an hour. I gave Jiri explicit information and asked for an estimate on what he thought the final cost would be. Jiri said because of afternoon traffic, it could cost between $250 and $300. It took 2 hours, the men worked fast, wasted no time and worked quickly and professionally. However, Jiri charged $300 for the job anyway. Not the 2 men at $80 or $160 total quote. I paid the men $240, because they were good and it was not their fault but it was Jiri in the office I had the problem with. Plus, at this point, I was then told there was a $240 minimum. First I heard of that, and it should have mentioned before and been put in writing. I have my notes, no, never mentioned that. The men told me to take it up with Jiri. I was ready to give them a big tip but by then I was frustrated and annoyed. Not my first rodeo, Jiri. I've moved before. You don't get away with that. Stick to the quote, don't give an estimate of the job that is inflated and then try to stick to that, and if there is a minimum, put that in writing on the quote. Or was it possibly just a misunderstanding? In that case, you owe me $80. SRC ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ See Jiri's quote below: Mon 1:50 PM Chatting with Jiri Priam $260 total price Howdy, Thank you for your interest in our moving services! If you're still looking for quality moving helpers with over 14 years of moving experience we are ready to help. Here's is what I can offer you to support your move. Here are your options; 2 labor movers for $80 an hour. 3 labor movers for $105 an hour. We can also provide a flat rate in some cases. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Other services we offer: We have moving van, equipped with dollies, moving blankets, straps & shrink wrap.
