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.

Very cute family owned moving service with a touch of catered boutique service. They were all very professional, punctual and had a smile through the move. They understand what it's like for a family to move and will ensure you have a fun experience moving. I highly recommend using Michael and his crew for your next move!

Frank and his team were incredible. They were professional, respectful, and took care of protecting our belongings during the move. I will never move without them. I’ve never been so impressed with movers. I was on a tight time crunch and a lot to move and they got the job done so efficiently and promptly. I openly recommend this company without any hesitations to anyone who needs to move. By far Frank and Exclusive Movers are the best on Thumbtack and best in Orange County!!!

The movers that we hired through UHaul cancelled the afternoon before our move so we were scrambling to find movers that could work in our schedule. We are so glad that ASAR was available and were thrilled with their service. They were on-time, professional, and respectful of our property. We will use them for any future moves and will recommend them to anyone asks.

This is my first time hiring professional movers and I have read all the horror stories on the internet about the process. With that said, I can say that this company definitely jump started my faith in the moving business. Every move comes with its own set of unexpected challenges and circumstances. Raul and Damarcus rolled with all the punches and continued their service with expert confidence and customer reassurance that helped relieve the stress of moving. I would 100% hire again and recommend their services without any reservation.

Michaelson Moving Company was great to work with! I needed to find a mover ASAP to move some items from one location to another and also do a large pickup (noticed they offered that service on their Facebook page). Michael worked with me to fit me in last minute which I really appreciated. Great crew that was nice to work with! Very careful not to damage anything. Professional, friendly and more than I expected. I would highly recommend Michaelson Moving Company to anyone looking for a local mover. PS. If you have large items, they will pick them up for a reasonable fee and do their best to find a good home for them before taking them to the dump. I think that's a wonderful service!

I wanted to thank you and the Next Stop team for the excellent job you did moving me today. Thank you for fitting me into your busy schedule at the last minute. The two gentlemen that moved my furniture were prompt, professional and courteous. What I appreciated most was the fact they made me feel valued even though they only moved a few items. They did a great job and were in and out in less than 35 minutes. Definitely keeping you in mind as a referral for friends or if I need a moving company again. Take care and thanks again.

We hired this company to move us 3 miles, from a large home (4 bedrooms, 3 baths) to a place a third smaller. We had to move the date a day, which was easily accommodated by Konstantine. So far so good, but 4 men were sent

The movers showed up on time and took care of everything I asked for. I was worried about all the antique and fragile furniture I have but Clever got all of that moved without a scratch. There was some minor damage to a couple of other pieces but they did make it right in the end, as much as possible. I was happy with the price.
