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.

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.

Velazquez Movers did an excellent job. If I ever need help moving again, I won’t hesitate to hire them again.

I had to organise a move on short notice for my son- same town, moving out of a 3 bedroom house into a one bedroom flat- was sight unseen for both me (online) and the movers. They were great communicators, the move got done, all is well. Took a little longer then either party expected so I might next time go for a flat rate rather then by the hour but no complaints

Matt and his team are amazing. Very knowledgeable and careful. Moved my 300 lbs bathroom vanity downstairs and the new one upstairs. They protected the vanities when they moved them and took care not to damage any walls. Would definitely do business with My Movers again!! Super quick despite a complicated staircase. They were done in like an hour

Over the top happy customer!!!!!!

The crew of two men worked hard to move my furniture stored in a Pod in my driveway. They were professional in their work ethic & unwrapped all the stored furniture & placed it exactly as I had directed with no damage. I will recommend Tony's Delivery & Labor for moving jobs, whether large or small as they are detail oriented & handle large or delicate furniture in a very professional manner.

We hired KC Removal service to transport our furniture during a recent move. Kevin and Andre were awesome! There were a couple hiccups the morning of our move due to heavy rains and car trouble, but KC Removal Service came through for us and did a great job. Both Kevin and Andre were very conscientious about protecting our furniture and floors during the move, which is something I was particularly concerned about. They had great attitudes, planning things carefully, respected our requests/directions, and were really fun to be around. We will definitely be recommending KC Removal Service, but in particular we recommend requesting Kevin and Andre. Thanks guys!

Wonderful family operation. Great on customer service. Thoroughly enjoyed having them move us. Very flexible and accommodating with us. Sergei delivered a forgotten item 2 days later after the move. Unfortunately it was broken, but it is wood and a small fix. Excellent work ethic. I have used both big and small companies in the past and it always was disastrous in some way. Not with Cherish. Really enjoyed doing business with them and would highly recommend them.

The team of David, Dan, and Oz were fantastic! They were on time, easy to communicate with, and worked so hard on our move! They really went above and beyond by disassembling and then reassembling my very heavy treadmill, wrapping all our furniture with care, moving furniture after we decided we didn’t like the first placement and took an interest in learning our box labeling system. They paid special attention to all COVID protocols and we felt very safe with them. I would absolutely recommend!

These guys did a really great job in a challenging situation (moving out of a second floor apartment with a baby and a dog still in the house). Also, super polite and careful with our stuff. Not a single scratch. Highly recommend!!
