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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

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.

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 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.

Mike and Scott were here 10 minutes early for my yard sale set up. They worked very efficiently and got all the furniture moved in 90 minutes. They asked questions and were extremely careful not to bruise walls or furniture.

Thank you so much for the excellent service! I was throughly satisfied with the prompt response. I was on a tight dead line to move some furniture to my garage for a next day donation. Not only did Fantastic Movers respond and here my plea but they were able to move the furniture the same day thank goodness. I know that normally movers require a couple of days notice for advance booking so I was truly appreciative that they were able to fit me in to their tight schedule. The guys were fantastic as advertised!

On time, professional furniture moving, no damage to home. Took on a short 30 minute job at a fair price. Other movers had “minimums” five times more than Dixon’s quote. These guys want to work and will accommodate your needs within a negotiated price range.

We needed several heavy pieces of furniture moved up and down stairs in our home. Benson sent out two incredibly friendly and competent professionals to get it done. They were careful and had the job done in no time. We could not be happier. Thank You Benson Move.

The guys were great! They were extremely professional and got every thing moved from one location to the next in a timely manner. They also made sure to take care of both houses so no damage was done to the homes or the furniture. Definitely recommend them and will use them for all future moves!

I had 5-6 heavy pieces of furniture I wanted moved to a different location in my home. Fred's Moving (Ken) quickly answered questions prior to hiring them. They were on time, courteous, and amazingly FAST. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to local friends and family! Great job. I am a very satisfied customer.

Could not get Couch through basement doorway. They didn't have tools to take feet off couch, which might have made the difference. It was a hot day and I don't have AC so I didn't press the issue. Had them move it to driveway. Had to move furniture out of way to do that and they did. They were very pleasant to work with.

We needed to move heavy furniture from one level to another as well as have a large heavy item hauled away. PMA was quick to respond to our request for service, provided thorough information and quotes and followed through exactly as promised. The crew was punctual, professional and efficient. Jah and Tanner asked for a complete walk-through of what we needed before they started. The work was done quickly, but very carefully. COVID protocols were observed and we are grateful for their help!
