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.

My local move was pretty simple. It consisted of moving some items into a close-by storage, but nevertheless, Nomad Movers were punctual and finished the job quickly and effectively.

Excellent experience. I moved out of state. CA to NV. My move was a 2 day move to. Everything went well. Day one I had 3 movers and they were finished packing the truck in about 3hrs. Movers Michael, Alex an An were great. Second day was An and Michael that delivered my stuff to Vegas. They were on time both days and worked diligently. I had no damage. Would hire them again.

Needed moving a 232lb lateral filing cabinet upstairs. Two gentlemen from In And Out Moving Co. came and quickly took the item upstairs, removed al of the shipping wrapping and took that downstairs. I highly recommend using their services for all moving needs big or small.

I hired these guys to help me with my most recent move, and they were on time, extremely hard working and very nice. My move went over my allotted time, but I had far more stuff than I realized. They made the stressful act of moving much easier on me.

Let me start by saying I requested 3 movers, because there were a several of heavy things that I expected it would be hard to move. The movers showed up on time and began to work, but I notice fairly early that the move wasn't going well. I had already disassembled the furniture like the beds and the dining rom tables, so there was no assembly or disassembly work. I expected a half days work to move 24 pieces of household furniture and 2 patio sets. It took 7 and 1/2 hours. The movers arrived and only had furniture dolly's no furniture straps. Everything was put on a dolly. Even IKEA book shelves that weight 45 lbs each required a dolly and two movers. I had a couch and love seat that were delivered by two movers and they had them in and set up in 15 minutes tops. It took Sky moving between 20 to 40 minutes to move each on. There was a front load washer and dryer that were upstairs which were heavy and I knew they would take a little extra to get them out. However, these movers ended up bending the frame of the washer and scratching the wooden stair rail and getting one of the movers legs caught under the washer that I had to help lift before his leg was broken. For an honest review I have to say I know all moves don't go exactly as planned and this one certainly didn't. They did some damage to the walls of the old house as well s the new house. The damaged can be repaired, but they are professional movers. They also broke one leg on a $1500 Armoire. They didn't have to move any boxes or any small stuff, just the large furniture and it took 7 and 1/2 hours. When I called the company to discuss the time it took for this move being excessive and the time that was wasted because they used a dolly for everything, the damage to the walls and the furniture, their answer was, "We can credit you one half hour." I would never use this company again, and would never recommend them. Bob Corona, CA

Rigo and team were very easy to work with, and very professional. They communicated well and let us know if there were any potential delays with our move. We were very happy with how fast they worked and with their knowledge of moving items. We moved large furniture items, a Peloton, and multiple boxes from our storage unit to a new home.

Everything about our experience was terrible and unprofessional. First we were told that we would have a 26’ moving truck and 3 guys. For a 3 bedroom, 1800sq ft house we were quoted 5-6 hours at $105/hr. I agreed and we set the date. They showed up with a 16’ truck and right away I knew I had made a mistake. 2 of the movers did a good job, and the third mover looked like he was 15 years old and had zero experience in moving. I paid for 3 movers, and we only got 2.5. By the time they moved all of our stuff, it had taken 12 hours, DOUBLE the initial estimate. I understand we may have had more stuff than expected, but still from a 6 hour quote to 12 hours. At the end of the day he tried charging me $1200. I had to negotiate and get the price down which was very frustrating. Had they showed up with 3 experiences movers and a 26’ truck, the move would have taken 6-7 hours max. That wasn’t even the worst part. Almost every piece of furniture that was moved was damaged. All of my bedroom furniture was badly scratched from not protecting it in the move. One of my night stands is damaged beyond repair. I have 2 newer couches, and both were damaged and got very dirty from the movers. My 2 year old daughters Pottery barn bookshelf and dresser were badly damaged. I can not believe how bad they did. Very sad to have so many pieces of furniture damaged. It will cost thousands to replace or repair the furniture. My wife is extremely upset! Beware of these guys, they are not professional movers.
