Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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. 

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.

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 does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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.

Great moving experience!

Available quickly, did a good job moving in and out. Scratched up the stairs a bit moving in but assisted in repairing as needed.

I used simply moving, last minute, literally booked it the day of to move. I was so incredibly happy I picked them. The price was incredible, they showed up on time, moved everything efficiently, quickly, didn't damage a single thing or complain about having to carry it to my apt. I'd highly recommend them to anyone looking and will be calling them for any future moves.

I had an excellent experience. The company replied to my Thumbtack request immediately. They also communicated well through email and text messages as we got closer to the date. The movers were quick and professional. The movers also removed a curtain rod and put one up at the move-in location. I was extremely pleased with this company!

Daniel was very responsive and very willing to answer all of my questions regarding the logistics of the move. He and his team went above and beyond to make sure I had a smooth move. They had many supplies to help wrap furniture and other loose items that needed special care. I moved my belongings approximately 45 miles away and they took care of packing furniture, loading all contents of a one bedroom apartment, driving their moving truck down one county, and unloading. They were very efficient and communicative and excellent problem-solvers. I felt like my move was in good hands. Would definitely hire again.

Harry showed up on time completely prepared and did an amazing job moving my couch. A problem arose to where the only option was to move the 7ft piece of the sectional down 10 flights of stairs and he did so with no complaints, problem-solved and was very patient through the whole process. Did the entire move on his own and no damage to my couch. Highly recommend!

We had such a great experience! My husband and I did a long distance move from Los Angeles to Portland for law school. I was pretty nervous about which movers to go with — you are entrusting your entire life’s belongings with them so did extensive research on every option from large moving companies to PODS to UHauls. We were also pretty budget conscious so were shocked at the prices we kept getting back. But when I got the quote from I Need To Be Moved I was excited but honestly a little skeptical because of the affordability compared to everyone else. Plus I’ve dealt with so many scammers online I really wanted to do my due diligence. Their front office was incredibly kind and patient, answering all our questions, providing referrals and video testimonials that made us confident enough to move forward. The moving team was so professional. They clearly take their job very seriously and treated our belongings with the utmost care. The team even drove hours out of their way en route to Portland so as to avoid the wildfires (which we hadn’t even thought to ask about). I couldn’t recommend this company more. I know moving is a really high stress experience but I Need To Be Moved made the transition painless.

George and his team are great. George responded to my request immediately and was able to move our "new-to-us" vintage pool table within the same week at a reasonable price. I highly recommend AV Blliards for pool table moving needs. Thank you George for your service!

Richard and his coworker did a great job moving the big bookcase inside the house. They helped me with un-wrapping the furniture. Also they moved other furnitures around in the house. They were respectful, had great attitudes and were very helpful. Richard has very competitive pricing I would definitely use his services in the future.

Frank,Raul and Marcos were great. Efficient, timely, careful and always professional. Huge move (5BR,35 yrs) and we discussed strategy/plan. Divided up project into 2 days for time for us to prepare for storage then the traumatic 2BR condo move to smaller livings space. Their knowledge/ability for spacial and attention to degree of care for each item was due to their communication with each other and owners. Protection wrap for everything we didn’t appreciate was a blessing. The large artwork, furniture and Eliptical was impressive. Already have a reservation for the return move next year. I would t think of using anyone else.

Noah did a fantastic job moving us out of our apartment and into our house. He and his partner worked carefully to get all our furniture safely out of our 2nd floor apartment. They were also very helpful getting everything set-up at the new house, even taking the time to put floor protectors on the legs of our sofa. I would recommend Noah to anyone needing help with a move.

Alena was quick to respond and answer my questions about booking, and accommodating when I needed to make a change a few days before moving day. Mike and Eugene did a great job on moving day. They wrapped all our furniture and were very careful with all our belongings. When we got to our new home, they asked us and made sure they knew where everything should go. They were polite, communicative, focused, and professional. Would definitely recommend them!

I found 24 Seven on thumbtack and chose based on reviews. I could not be more happy with their them. From the beginning Chuva was quick to respond and set up my moving dates. Kyle and his team arrived 15 minutes early and were professional, methodical and courteous. I absolutely give them 5 stars and recommend their service.

Alex and Luis understood the task at hand: moving a heavy metal desk down a flight of stairs and out to the garage. Alex then quickly figured out how to attach the legst, which had been removed before he and Luis tackled the job. They made sure the drawers were in correctly and that everything that needed to be done was done, before they left. Good natured, capable and efficient.

Really disappointed in the way things turned out I hired a company to move some gym equipment and was very specific with the needs and the logistics. one guy and a pregnant woman showed up in a rental van then left for lunch and never came back and basically left me stranded the owner did come and try to make it right but the damage is done and so far no resolution

We were impressed by the prompt reply of Mr. Gurrola and by his friendly manner. He was able to accommodate us when we only needed to move just one item. He kept in touch and answered all our questions. His team worked with care to ensure that the armoire was properly wrapped and transported. We definitively will recommend him to our family and friends in the future.
