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.

Truly respected and appreciated working with PTM Movers. Dave was a wonderful point person and his three-man moving team were all professional and worked their butts off (on a hot day). Very much recommend!

I needed to move and didn’t want to go through with it on my own so I decided to hire movers. PTM did the job well and got me out of my place and in a new one in no time and no hassle. I’d call them again though I hope I don’t have to move again, any time soon. Great service.

My job was not a big one - moving mahogany furniture from one storage to another. Russell and Dimitrii were prompt, professional, loading and unloading with ease and great care. More importantly, they helped me dispose of boxes of hard cover books which had been in storage for over 7 years. I had changed my mind many times about what to be moved from my house, when the move would be. Russell was always responsive and accommodating. These young guys will be my go-to guys for local moves.

The Nomad Movers overall were great and got the job done! I’m giving 4 stars because we got two movers. One was quick and nimble, the other kept moaning the whole time that he was tired and by the end of it, he sat in the truck while the other mover finalized everything. That said, I don’t think this one mover should be a reflection on the company, so I would book with them again in the hopes that we don’t get someone who complains about the job they’ve been hired to do.

Not the same company I hired online. The moving truck did not have the company name or logo and the truck was beaten up with some faded tagging on it. None of the movers had the Nomad Logo on shirts. Not professional at all. Did they get the job done? Yes - was it efficient? No. Would not recommend for hire for lack of transparency.

We found A Plus through Thumb Tack. Felix the owner was incredibly professional with above and beyond service he was easy to reach and responsive. Nothing was to much trouble. He helped us getting a great price on boxes, tape and any other material we needed for the move. On the day of the move, Felix sent his team led by Jose. Jose and the team were fantastic, really professional, great attitude and very hard working. The move was completed with everything in tact!! I will be sure to recommend them to anyone I know.

I was apprehensive about using this service since it was a new listing, and had only a couple of reviews. But James was super friendly, showed up at the pickup destination 15 minutes earlier than he needed to, and was quick with the task of moving two couches. He was really responsive with questions, and I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a mover!

Super fast communication and they did an amazing job with a pretty tricky move with a big couch into a small building! Will use again for sure

Alex and his team moved my client from LA to Dallas. It was a full service pack of a 1500 sq ft, 2/2 with study. The best part is, there was NOOO waiting! The move happened on a Wednesday and the items were delivered by the following Monday! They were friendly, informative, and a great price! My only advice or take aways from it was that I wished they would have labeled the boxes and kept them separate--all kitchen items, or all guest room items. That's what I have had in previous full service moves. I am huge on organization so I would have preferred things be separate and labeled by room/area, to make the unpacking easier, but the most important part was nothing was broken or missing :). I would definitely refer them to anyone moving from Cali

Viktor and the other mover were friendly and extremely efficient. They arrived promptly, and got right to work. They also took great care of my items, wrapping them up thoroughly before transport. Pricing structure was way more straightforward than I had seen from other moving companies, and I appreciated how quickly they responded to communications during the booking process. Highly recommended!
