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.

We had a great experience with Pana Moving & Storage. Our moves were very professional, nice and truly care about our furniture. We are moving out of town with our own truck. The movers stacked everything perfectly and made sure there is no movement since we have a long drive. Communication was easy. We highly recommend them.

Shift It moving did a seamless job with our move. I was really impressed with Wes. He confirmed the night before the time they'd be arriving and were very punctual. They were extremely efficient and the move went very quickly. It was a great deal and a high level of service. One less thing to stress about during a move! I'd highly recommend them.

Most responsive movers I have ever dealt with. Responded to my inquiry within 10 minutes. Sent messages to others who never responded. Moved a heavy piece of equipment I purchased to my house and put in place without issue. Hard to find any mover who is willing to move heavy items now a days - and even rarer who is smooth on doing the move. Messaged them, got a quote, was able to then make an educated offer on the equipment. Can’t explain how smooth and easy setting up the move and get this moved in a matter of a couple days. Even relayed info on operating the equipment when they brought it. Thanks for helping my family with our health goals.

Highly recommend: These guys worked hard and diligently for more than 9 hours - with nothing but little breaks - moving boxes, large furniture, small furniture, electronics and everything in between. That includes wrapping/unwrapping major items and TVs - all included. What's more, unfortunately during the move, our new home had a blackout, and they continued to move with nothing but flashlight light. They wrapped large furniture and delicate items and generally tried to not damage things, while moving fast. A full 26 foot truck moving a large 3 bedroom household with many heavy items. Hard working + very reasonable, straightforward pricing. In this day in age when it's hard to find quality vendors who don't B.S. you, they were straightforward with pricing, punctual and made it possible for us to move almost everything from the inside of the home in one trip. Hire Vas and Andre if you need a no frills, hard working team to make your moving day a little easier!

Rigo and his team were amazing! Not only did they accommodate my time sensitive move date, they offered a very fair price and accurate time frame. My pick up location was not the easiest place to move out of and they made it a breeze. Very professional service with a no hassle agreement. I will be using them in the future and I can personally recommend them to anybody in the area needing a moving service. Thanks again Rigo.

MGB Relocations moved my belongings, including a baby grand piano, from southern CA to northern CA. The entire move spanned just short of 2 months due to home sale & purchase in the relocation logistics, requiring storage in the interim. The conditions of the contract met all of my requirements, and communication was straight forward. The crew is courteous, helpful, efficient, and my belongings all made it to my new house safe and sound. This was a very good moving experience and I recommend their service.

They did an absolutely fabulous job moving our furniture! They moved two very long and quite heavy couches up narrow stairs and skillfully maneuvered them into very small rooms! Not a single wall bump or ding. Flawlessly done! Cannot thank you all enough for your help.

I would highly recommend Alex for not only the long distance pick up and delivery of our upright piano but for any type of move. Alex responded quickly to my inquiry regarding the piano move which was planned with very short notice and provided us with a very competitive quote. We couldn’t be happier !

Michaelson Moving Company was excellent. They came the same day I requested service. They moved an old couch out of my condo via the balcony, and brought the new sofa bed up via my balcony! Then unwrapped, took the plastic covering to the trash bin, and assembled the sofa They were professional, meticulous, very detailed, and absolutely awesome! I highly recommend this company!
