Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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. 

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.

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. 

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

I would highly recommend using Rod Rodriguez to anyone who needs furniture moved or moving out of their house. Rod is highly professional, very pleasant, hard-working, affordable, honest, straightforward, and meticulous about preparing the area before undergoing the task. His moving assistant, Rob, was also fantastic! Such hard workers, and not even a single scratch on the furniture or the house. It was not an easy job because they needed to carry two large pieces of furniture up a hairpin-turn staircase. We are moving from our home sometime within the next two to three years and I will definitely call Rod again!

These guys were the greatest. They responded promptly to my request to move and install furniture in my apartment. They were available the next morning and arrived in time and did a professional and outstanding job moving, unboxing and installing the pieces of furniture. It all came together perfectly! I cannot recommend Diaz Services highly enough! They are the best!

These guys were great! I hired 4 movers to move out of my second story apartment. All of my furniture was huge and they did a fantastic job not only moving it, but taking the time to wrap and protect it beforehand. They worked quickly and efficiently and I would for sure call them to assist my move next time!

The Clean Move did a great job moving all of my furniture and boxes across town quickly and carefully. Not a single complaint or damaged item, even on one of the hottest days of the year and down two flights of stairs. Prices exactly as quoted, no surprise costs.

We needed help moving a hefty 5-piece sectional sofa into a trailer to transport to another location. Rod was super helpful and generous in offering to not charge the 2 hour minimum for work expected to take less than one hour. Scheduling the move was hassle free. On the day of the move we received a call with ETA. The movers arrived on time, were very professional and great communicators! They took the time to securely wrap up the furniture to prevent scratches. They were able to creatively fit the furniture into the trailer without risk of damage. Everything went smoothly. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience! They also accept easy contactless method of payment too with Venmo. We will definitely use them again. Thank you On the Move!
