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.

MGB went above and beyond what you'd expect from a moving company! Mario and Oscar did an excellent job with our tough and long move (10 hours). I was hesitant to pick a moving company to begin with, but I was so glad I picked them. Mario was very responsive and answered all my questions before the move was scheduled. On the day of the move, they showed up during scheduled time window and helped finish packing some kitchen items. Our move was complicated because it involved moving a 2 bedroom apartment - dining set, living room, washer and dryer, etc, driving 1 hour to the new destination, unloading some of the items from the apartment including setting up 2 beds and a dresser, packing two large couches and coffee tables and finally take everything to a large storage unit. I highly recommend this moving company and will use them in the future.

Mario and his crew moved for us on July 10th. They were actually early and completed our move quickly and efficiently. We're were so impressed at how careful and thorough they were packing and protecting all of the furniture and misc. items. I HIGHLY recommend them as a moving service. The price was definitely fair and they never took a break!

I would highly recommend 5star moving to anyone. They were very prompt to arrive. They worked very hard, non stop until finishing the move. They took time to protect all the furniture and things. I had no breakage after unpacking. I will use them again next time I move. Great job!

Very unreliable moving company! I had a relatively straightforward move with only 2 pieces of furniture traveling about 400 miles. They offered me a competitive rate of which I had accepted. Then a week later, they call me ON THE DAY OF THE MOVE that they had double-booked and if I’m able to reschedule for 2 days later. It was a little inconvenient but I accepted once again. Then ON THE DAY OF THE RESCHEDULED MOVE they called me and mentioned their moving truck had mechanical issues and therefore could not take the job. I was angry at that point and cancelled the job. Their loss!! This company is very unreliable and absolutely do not recommend them. If I could give them zero stars then I would.

The movers that were sent where great guys.. We had a few things broken though and they didnt tell us about it.. We discovered it later.. That was disappointing!! It took forever for the move. (A small truck was sent eventhough we told the owner we had a 4 bedroom townhome.) So they had to make 2 trips! On top of it all it was 10$ extra an hour for each floor!! Even if they only spent a hour or two going up to the other floors we were charged for every hour they were moving us!. That to me is ridiculous!! When we went to pay we had to fight about the end price.. And the owner would send us a receipt for the move.. Seemed kinda shady to us.. I should have researched more before hiring this company!! We paid almost 1500 dollars for this move!! Then tips on top of it for the 3 movers( they DID deserve it though) the move took almost 12 hours.. We had most the house already packed and most of the stuff in the garage already to go.. Pros.. they did wrap everything, so we cant understand how some stuff ended up broken or scratched. Super nice guys for the move.. Cons - too pricey. Took way too long. Owner didnt want to give a receipt.. I will say it again.. The moving guys were great... Just everything else we didnt like.

Kuka and Michel handled my move over this past weekend. The move involved roughly 2 rooms of furniture and boxes. The move was from the inland empire to Los Angeles. Both gentlemen were efficient and quick. I was really impressed with how fast they moved and how hard they worked. I’ve used other moving companies who make excuses and attempt to run out the clock. But these guys were different. Their main priority was getting the move done in the most efficient way possible. Which is great customer service! Kuka and Michel did an excellent job and I feel like my money was well spent. There was only one issue when a box fell over during the move and a bottle of cologne broke. So my apartment still smells from the spill. Accidents happen and both guys helped to clean it up. But I’m thankful it wasn’t a worse situation. But all in all...would I use them again? Yes, I definitely would. I felt taken care of and that’s what matters most.

Absolutely amazing! I don’t usually have great experience with movers, but my sister-in-law needed help moving out of her apartment so I just hired Reuben at random on Thumbtack. I got so so lucky. He was on time, took amazing care of all of her stuff and worked quickly. I am moving myself in a few weeks and will rehire him. Thanks Reuben!!!!

This was absolutely horrible moving experience. We moved only 2 miles away and most of our furniture got damaged and some are severe damages. Corner damage was most common damage type. They were basically tossing furniture around carelessly. The owner mumbled around saying that he is "very careful". The end result of our move is many damaged furniture and pictures below. When we ask to fix these, he claims these could be there before hand... If you value your furniture, do not use their service. He was hired by hourly basis and took really long hours of moving >10 hrs for small rented apartment households. He said he took long time since he is extra careful but see end results and no responsibilty on what he caused!! Another thing you need to be aware is he did not and could not provide a proof of insurance whe asked. He only verbally stated he has before hiring him but whe we asked him to show the paperwork or proof on the day of moving, he did not bring and show anything! Since we had to move out on that day, we didnt have any other choice. Watch out this mover who cannot provide a proper paperworks on insurance and company related ones and damaging tons of furniture around.

First, let me acknowledge that having an adjustable bed moved from an upstairs bedroom in a townhome to an upstairs apartment with tight clearance would be a challenge to any moving team. They showed up on time, were very professional and kept the job moving along. I would imagine that having to go back to LA motivated them to finish in a bit over 6 hours. Only problems were a broken light on a planter stand, shrink wrap left on a number of furniture pieces and shelving dowels missing from one of our cabinets. Considering the aforementioned adjustable bed, and compared to other moves we have done, things went rather smoothly. Would recommend them to family and friends.
