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.

Jamie’s service was a lifesaver! I messaged his moving service a day before I needed to complete the move. His response was quick and professional. He assured me they could meet at the agreed time and location. They were punctual and ready to work. They completed the move so fast...I was both shocked and relieved. Jamie and Gilberto were phenomenal. Definitely give them ago. They are a community gem! Great small business!

We hired JP Moving Services to carry a large heavy aquarium (400 lbs) from the garage inside the house and on top of an aquarium stand. They did it with ease. They were professional and very responsive in communication. I highly recommend JP and his team for your moving needs. Thank you again JP and your team. You guys are awesome!

Professional, efficient, and capable. The movers wrapped every large furniture piece. Were cautious when moving furniture through narrow hallways and doors. Kept a good pace wrapping and loading furniture. They were quicker with unloading, unwrapping and getting everything back together in the new location. Couldn't be happier with how quickly and effectively the job was done. Money well spent!

Movers were late getting to site. Once there they were excellent. They were efficient, courteous and responsive to our needs. And they came in under the original estimate. I would highly recommend them to family and friends. Randy and Jacquie Hericourt

Two gentlemen arrived at 0900. Their names were Mickey and Adam. They were painstakingly careful with my furniture. My furniture was made of very heavy wood. Mickey reconnected my television, cable, speakers, blu ray player, and sound bar; so, I’m ready for cable guy to come and turn my service back on. They also reconnected my laptop, printer and other peripherals. I’m extremely satisfied and would highly recommend this bison for your next move. I’m going so far as to recommend them to management here at my retirement complex so that others can benefit from your service. I can’t tell you enough about how happy I am with the move. I’ve recommended you to two new customers:

They did an amazing job. The place we were moving out of was an awful place for heavy lifting and carrying. (Awkward stairs, steep hills, the lot) but they handled it great and worked as quickly as they could. Showed up exactly at 8:00 AM and were very careful with our things. We would definitely recommend them! They have a great attitude about it and are very pleasant and positive people. You can’t go wrong with this company!

Very displeased w the service to say the least. Per the add the workers are young and energetic!! I reached out for Svc via this app. Hired the company and the service I received was horrible. I was told by management that the workers were tired from a previous job, which is understandable. But if you know that why not send a diff group of men for the job.. I was told that they would pack, assemble and dissemble. My TVs were never put up due to the workers telling me there was no stud for the tv. Workers didn’t even have a stud finder. Said all this to say I had to hire someone else to finish the job that “Smart moving” should have completed. TVs up now
