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.

I can't thank Mike and Shaw Packing and Moving enough. What a top notch professional Team! I had never hired a moving company before and was faced with coordinating a long distance move for my elderly parents. They relieved ALL my stress! The front office not only provided excellent customer service during my research, but assisted throughout the move by keeping in close contact during the two day move as well. My move Team was just as exceptional! They arrived as scheduled, took the time to walk me through everything and were extremely hard workers. The cost was also the best value I found! NO weight estimating! Customer service, professionalism, and integrity are certainly a big part of this Company's values and it showed in everyone I came in contact with. I highly recommend Mike and Shaw Packing and Moving, you won't be disappointed!!

I did some research for my move and requested quotes; this company came back with the best rate I could ask for. Moving into a 3rd floor walk up was insanely stressful, but these guys did it in record time. The movers were very professional and courteous. They communicated timing and logistics well, were upfront about pricing, and were thoughtful on how to move in a way that didn't cause any damage to my furniture. They were on-time, fast, and knew what they were doing. Overall I had no issues with the team and they made my moving experience as painless as possible, which I appreciate. Would definitely use them again if I end up moving down the line. Professional, efficient and hardworking bunch. I highly recommend!

Just wonderful from start to finish. The team, Sam, Chris and Fred were absolutely amazing and super quick! They completed our move within the quoted 2 hours, from 1 elevator building to the other. We just moving 1 street away so did not have any travel time in our move. In fact, they did not even load up the truck and simply carried our furniture across the street. This was recommend by the team. Thank you for making moving less of an ordeal & annoyance - truly grateful for this crew and company!

I'm so satisfied with my move! Let's face it - moving is stressful. But the team from Jet Moving and Storage made the process simple and smooth. I chose the company based on the great reviews on thumbtack, and I was not disappointed. Pierce, Sam and Alex were total pros. They were efficient but careful, and made moving furniture and heavy boxes look effortless. They expertly disassembled my bed and couch and reassembled them in the new place. They are fast and efficient, but handle EVERYTHING with care. The estimate range was lower than the other two companies I contacted, and the final price was right in the middle of what they quoted. It was a very fair price. It's worthwhile to mention that in this critical condition of COVID-19 Pandemic they didn't raise up their costs for me unlike other companies that I asked for quotes. If you're debating which moving company to use, save yourself the time and emotional energy, and just book Jet Moving and Storage!

I was concerned with moving during the pandemic but the crew worked with our safety in mind and kept to social distancing. Very professional, very nice, and no damages what so ever! From getting the quotes over the phone with James all the way to the movers moving my items were a very pleasant experience and truly a worry-free experience! Everyone was courteous and careful with our belongings and you could tell that these guys enjoyed working with each other. They took what could have been a stressful day and made it as easy as possible. The experience was good as I could hope it to be. Definitely my go to movers from now on!

This is the first time we have hired professional movers. Mario was quick with responding to our request. He’s estimate was simple to understand because there were several moving companies with different prices not really understanding the actual cost. Mario, Oscar, and Alex came in prepared and we’re on mission to satisfy the customer. These are hard working individuals and I praise them for that. We had a house safe which they successfully moved and relocated for us. We are so grateful for their help! They are highly recommend.

I've used this company three times for three different moves over the course of 4 or so years. Incredible job each time. I am not easily impressed, but each move they continue to amaze me at with their promptness, professionalism, and efficiency. James is extremely responsive via email to set up. On moving day, Alexa texted me on their way with an eta of 20 minutes early so they could set up, assess the inventory, get paperwork signed and start right on time. Their prices are among the best in the city. They wrap each piece of furniture with care at no additional charge. We moved from an apartment to a house and they put everything in the exact place we asked. Extremely polite, too. Very pleasant experience.

Patrick did such an excellent job at packing us up, moving us to Northern California and unpacking. Patrick is meticulous in handling furniture and fragile boxes. He is reliable, flexible and has exceptionally good rates. I really cannot say enough good things about Patrick. He is a true professional in every sense. I was so pleased that we chose his delivery service and definitely recommend him. If I ever need a moving service again, it will be Patrick. Thank you Thumbtack for leading me to this great moving company.

The guys that did our move were genuinely nice and caring people. Super-friendly, incredibly fast, and nothing damaged. They were on time, gave me a warning call, and were helpful in every way throughout the move. They put things in the rooms they were meant to go and put them where we wanted them. They also were reasonably priced compared to others, which is why I chose them to begin with. They really made a stressful day much more bearable. What movers actually make you smile!? We would choose them again without a doubt.

Was a little hesitant on the price due to personal budgeting however you get what you pay for and we are so glad we hired PQT movers instead of someone cheaper. They took extra special care of all of our belongings. Wrapped valuables with blankets as well as shrink wrap. They were fast efficient and very respectful. I hope to not be moving for a long time but if I did I will definitely be using them again!!! Thank you guys for such a wonderful job in helping my family get situated into our new home and even setting up our furniture for us. Such a relief having you as our movers!

They were very punctual, professional and polite to my entire family. They wrapped all my furniture so nothing would happen to it on the move. The whole team took extreme care with everything we needed to have moved. When we got to the other house they unloaded and put everything where we guided them. We had NO problems at all, NOTHING broken, we would HIGHLY recommend them.
