Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

DDT moving was great. They were responsive and answered my questions leading up to the move and was communicative the day of the move. They came with everything prepared and started packing right away. I was impressed with how quickly they moved and thoroughly they handled the fragile items. Would definitely move with them again!

I hired H&Y for my move from Berkeley to San Francisco and was very impressed with the speed and care of the move! The movers arrived right on time (with Wendy calling to give me a heads up) and they were super fast wrapping up and moving all my items. The movers (Hwang and Ma (sp?)) were extremely nice and upbeat throughout the whole move, especially for moving so many things. This was also the best quote i received from my posting on Thumbtack in terms of $ / hour and minimum moving time. I'd use H&Y again and have already recommended them to my friends!

Overall, the move experience was pretty smooth. Movers were really nice, punctual and careful in moving the stuff. Only thing is it turned out to be little expensive than i thought.

Moving during Covid is the worst. Larro Movers, esp. Jose and Francisco, went above and beyond. We moved to an assisted living facility which required our movers to show vaccine cards and be negative tests day of the move. No problem. These guys were efficient, responsive and kind. They put together our new tiny sofa (not easy), and dealt with a complicated wooden bed. Nothing damaged, everything delivered. And so pleasant! Thank you Larro Movers!

If you are looking for movers, look no further. Him and his team literally saved the day. We had a other moving company booked for our move in the morning and they just never showed up. I reached out to Low Cost Moving on the day of and they were able to help me. Derrick and his team were prompt, fast, efficient, professional and courteous- everything you’d ever want from a moving professional. They were the best movers I had met in my life and I’ve moved quite a few times before. His price was lower than others but his work was way, way better than any other moving company. We had so much stuff and it was not an easy move but he managed to fit everything in his truck! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to move in the bay area. Thanks so much Derrick!

Ricardo was very communicative before moving day and the movers were professional, kind, thorough and fast! They made moving day so much easier! I was only moving from one small apartment to another in the same town and it took 2 hours. Thank you to Ricardo and your awesome team!

Awesome job. Movers came early and waited, they were very polite and cared for my furnitures as if their own. When I found out that my movers were not able to move my refrigerator I spoke to a rep about previously, the owner/manager sent in 3 extra men just to move my refrigerator. Everything went smoothly and already referred them to my friend who’s moving this weekend. Thank you guys!

Great experience working with this moving company for a move between Berkeley and SF. Huge thanks to my movers Adil and Zhan! They were thorough, efficient, and reliable. Even though the moving truck broke down right before my appointment (just bad luck), my experience was hardly affected. The movers communicated clearly, and were able to balance the work of packing while the rest of their team prepared an alternative truck behind-the-scenes. We completed the trip in time with no problem. I’m sure it was very stressful for the movers, but they didn’t show it. Very professional!

We booked iMoving for moving from Berkeley to Milpitas and the movers were great! We had a big couch, 65" TV, TV stand, office desks, office chairs, bed frame, mattress, multiple boxes, and suitcases, and the entire move was finished in 5.5 hours with 2 movers. The movers were extremely professional, did not waste any time, and took extreme care of our furniture. Will definitely recommend iMoving to all my friends!

The movers were fast and efficient. When I accepted the quote, I thought it was for 2 movers and the truck, but when they arrived there were 3 movers and I hadn't budgeted for that extra cost. They were great but make sure they clarify with you beforehand.

They rescheduled the night before we were supposed to move. This was luckily a Saturday so we were able to do it Sunday. Still, this threw off our plans significantly as we had to move other things around, including a cleaner I had scheduled for after the move. The moving itself went well. The guys worked quickly and efficiently and our stuff arrived unharmed.

Movers refused to finish the job! I had everything packed and ready to go. The truck was small and I didn't want to damage my items by stuffing everything in at once. The mover never communicated that they only drive to the new apartment destination once. Ironically the mover forgot his sweater at my old house which was only 5 min away and came to get his sweater and refused to move the additional items he had left. They were also extremely unprofessional asking me the price of my personal items and asking to stay over my house and hang after the move. I asked him to politely finish the job and he argued in my doorway for about 5 min. If you are woman, do not, I mean do not go with these movers,they are lazy and will intimidate you into paying for a lackluster job.I cant believe i spent an additional hour moving items that 2 movers should have moved only to be yelled at in my own doorway even after paying.

Creative and innovative movers were great to work with. They responded to my move request within 10 minutes and scheduled me for the very first move the next morning. I needed a heavy king-sized mattress moved up three flights of stairs to our new house. They arrived on time and easily completed the job. I would recommend them to anyone and would hire them again!
