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.

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’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. 

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 do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move.

Very smooth move of our large furniture items, highly recommend for any moving needs.

Scheduled moving a week prior to the move. They confirmed the move. They never showed up and wouldn't respond to text or phone calls. Very unprofessional. If you are going to cancel or not show, that should be communicated!

100% Satisfied with using Move Mountains, I've moved numerous times and this by far was the smoothest move, they scoped the job beforehand, showed up on time and took proper care of our household goods, no damages related to the move. Would definately use them again. Also they were straightforward to work with on the quotation process - I mention this because a number of moving companies were not.

Erin was very organized and always responsive as we planned out our move from Denver to Glenwood Springs. Move was super efficient day-of and we felt zero stress moving across the state. Everything was handled with care and packed/unpacked nicely. Staff who did the actual moving made it fun and couldn't have been nicer.

I have moved a number of times both locally and cross country. The team from the Other Side Movers starting with arranging for the job with the office staff, in particular Luke, and extending to the team that actually helped us move, Joseph Mark and John are all professional, highly motivated, very intelligent, and committed to excellence in their work. Their pricing was highly competitive it proved to be the best that I received when seeking a company to assist in our move. I would highly recommend using this organization for your moving needs. Thank you Other Side Movers for a wonderful experience!

The Elite Moving crew did a great job on our small move out! We had them take care of the heavy stuff we couldn’t move including a couple of pieces of exercise equipment. One of which was a commercial elliptical machine they had to move out of the basement. They moved everything and the freshly painted walls and doors remained undamaged. They accommodated us to make multiple delivery stops and did everything we needed. Their low minimums made our move much more affordable. Other movers asked for 5 or even 8 hour minimums. I have no complaints about the work they did and the flexibility they showed. I would definitely hire Dylan and his Team again.

Proper Form Moving was very punctual. The guys arrived right on time and ready to tackle the job first thing in the morning. They were courteous and professional and quite responsive to the what needed to be done to move heavy furniture from upstairs and the basement to the garage for carpet installation. I hired Proper Form Moving for our next job to move the furniture back and highly recommend their services!

EZ Moving was sensitive to our unique moving situation that entails a series of staged moves during the remodeling of our home and staging to sell. They were polite, professional, and affordable and they treated us with respect. We had items in the basement, main floor, and 2nd floor of our home, the reassurances from the team (Omar and Omar) put us at ease. Great guys and great company!! We will be using for future moving needs.

Great moving experience with these guys. They were so good about communication throughout the process - we moved in the middle of a snowstorm and they never waived; were in constant contact and did a great job. They protected our home and covered all our stuff during the move with tons of blankets. I highly recommend them.
