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. 

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. 

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.

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.

The movers were great. This was my first time using movers so I didn’t quite know what to expect, but they were very helpful in getting me moved in a timely fashion.

Elite Moving definitely provided an ELITE move! They arrived a few minutes before the scheduled time, they were extremely professional and patient due to some delays in my end. Once started, they moved quickly and I was all moved into my new place within a few hours! They even provided a complimentary service of mounting my television to the wall. Everything was fantastic and I would definitely use them again!

Gumar and Victor moved two heavy desks between floors in my house. They were professional, wrapping both desks and moving them carefully up and down a staircase. I recommend them.

The team was very respectful, showed up on time, and were very efficient with the way they moved things. We had a relatively small move since we were only moving two bedrooms and a few kitchen supplies. The entire process, which included wrapping furniture up in moving blankets and shrink-wrap, loading it in the truck and unpacking them at the new location took about 3.5 hours. And for this level of work, they charged a really great price. Most likely the cheapest I could find.

As I'm out here from NYC, I needed help moving last minute and called Shift It Moving at 6pm. They took my call while on a job and as it's their process to usually have a couple days in advance, they decided to take my business. They showed up the next day, promptly on time, carefully moved all my heavy furniture and took the time to carefully wrap anything fragile with heavy moving blankets. They moved a heavy hutch, and 4 couches and countless heavy boxes, it was impressive to see how they intelligently would maneuver ways to get these impossible sectional couches up thru this narrow staircase. If it weas me, I'd either say forget or try to cut the couch in half. They did a great job. I had to leave to a meeting and trusted them to finish moving the remaining items. I then received a courtesy call asking if I'd like to have my gigantic heavy wooden bed frame assembled..I totally forgot that I had zero tools, so that offer was a God send. By them time I got home, everything was in place, bed frame assembled with the mattress on, I couldn't be more satisfied. I'm not one to leave reviews, but I had to do one for Shift It Moving. Thumbs up fellas - Steve from NYC

James and Kevin worked hard all day during my move. I hope the business grows given their work ethic. They were careful with my items. I would be sure to accurately estimate the size of your move to prevent the need for multiple trips and more time to pay for service. Discuss lunch arrangements beforehand.

This company is AWESOME!! Frank was such a delight. He made sure to follow up the day before and day of our appointment. They were on time, professional, and very careful with everything. They even helped me throw several big items in the trash that I was not taking with me. I would definitely recommend using this moving company to get your moving done. Pricing is extremely reasonable.

If you’re looking for a great moving service, look no further than Dean’s Movers. After I was another company I had hired basically canceled on me at the last second the day of my scheduled move, I contacted Dean’s Mover’s and they were able to book me for the following morning without hesitation and I couldn’t be happier I ended up going with them. Kamean and Kevin showed up the next morning and immediately got to work. They were the nicest and most professional guys I’ve had the pleasure to work with. What I thought was a 3-4 hour job turned into a bit under 7 hours and these guys never complained. They got everything moved with care and with a smile on their face. They even took apart a big futon at my old place, and put it back together at my new place. They did the same for a desk. Again, never complained about the extra unexpected work. All my stuff was carefully transported and delivered to my new home and what I didn’t have boxed, they wrapped and blanketed was needed to be. Couldn’t thank Dean’s Movers anymore for getting me out of a last minute jam. I hope I will not need to move on many years, but if/when I do, I will surely be giving these guys a call again.

This was my first experience using Thumbtack because I needed quick and easy help moving a queen sized mattress from one home to another. Roberts Transport was so great! Fast at responding and did it all in the next hour of confirming details. He’s a single guy who moved a queen sized mattress on his own - crazy. Definitely recommend him and will look out for him for future needs.
