Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I choose the best moving company in Denver?

Some other factors to consider include the moving services offered, long-distance availability and overall ratings of movers. Lastly, look for Thumbtack’s Top Pro badge.

How much do movers cost in Denver?

In Denver, the top movers cost approximately $70 to $120 per hour. However, this cost can change and vary depending on how large your home is, how many hours you need the movers for and whether you’re hiring full-service or standard movers. 

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.



What is considered a long-distance move in Denver?

A move that’s 100 miles or more is usually considered a long-distance move, while shorter moves are considered local, according to some companies. Some also may consider a move of at least 400 miles as a long-distance move.

 Some specific examples of long-distance moves for Denver residents include:

  • Moving from Denver to Seattle 
  • Moving from Denver to Houston 
  • Moving from Denver to Las Vegas 
  • Moving from Denver to Phoenix 
  • Moving from Denver to Seattle

Reviews for Denver movers

Move went perfectly! Two movers were attentive and careful when moving everything, wrapping large items prior to moving. They were prompt, fast, and efficient!

Get more detail before the move so the move doesn't take 9 hours like ours did. There was no plan to the move, the movers were all over the place and got furniture stuck (for at least 45 minutes) in the backdoor because they had moved the truck before getting all of the big furniture out through the front door. I have moved 10+ times with movers in Chicago where the moves were multi level each way and this was by far the worst moving experience I have ever had.

The best movers I have ever had. Conscious Movers LLC is an amazing moving company whom I would recommend to any of my friends or family. They wrapped all furniture in moving blankets with bands tightly securing the blankets. Our 3bd 2bath house easily fit into their moving truck with tons of room to spare (saved us having to 2 trips, huge cost savings!!) They are an Environmentally minded moving company that uses sustainable packing: Moving blankets, reusable bands, reusable boxes, etc. Overall if you need a move in the Denver area Conscious Movers LLC / James (the owner) and his team is the best company you can pick to make the moving of your move the easiest thing about your move!! Thank you so much - Don!

The move went great. The logistics and payment could be improved on. I had no contract and my flat fee I was quoted was not honored and an $800 moved turned into a $1200 move. But I tend to expect this from moving companies as it seems like it always happens.

I hired AALL Care Free Moving to move my office to a new space across town. I am a seamstress so I have a heavy awkward industrial sewing machine, a large mirror and other items that required careful moving. Before moving day, communications with AALL were a little confusing but were cleared up in time for the move. The day of the move the movers called before arriving, arrived only a few minutes after the scheduled time and got to work immediately. I was so impressed with the efficiency and care of the movers. In end end the charges were fair and clear and I felt so relieved that I used AALL. I would definitely recommend them for any move.

Everything you need to know about Denver movers.

How much do movers cost in Denver?

Denver movers cost anywhere from $95 -$165 per hour. However, this is just an estimated cost. Moving companies in Denver set their prices using multiple factors, such as distance, how many trucks you need and any additional services you want (for example, packing or unpacking services).

As you evaluate your options for moving companies in Denver, get quotes from several pros to ensure you pay a fair price. 

How much do movers cost in Colorado?

Your moving costs in other parts of Colorado may not be the same as they are in Denver. For example, if you live in a remote area, you may have to pay a bit extra to help defray mileage costs for your move to Denver. 

Also, some Denver moving services may only work with clients in a certain area, so be sure to let your movers know exactly where you live or are moving to so you can verify that they service the area and you can get an exact quote. As always, get quotes from several moving companies before you hire a mover.

Can you negotiate with moving companies?

Many moving companies in Denver are actively managed by the owner, making it easy for you to discuss price with the decision-maker. While larger companies often have strict rules about their rates, smaller operations may be more flexible. If you have questions about rates, bring them up with the company. They may be able to reduce certain costs. 

Questions to ask Denver moving companies.

Before you select a moving company, ask plenty of questions upfront. For example, you can ask movers:

  • Is your moving company insured and licensed through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)?
  • What services related to moving do you provide?
  • What insurance coverage options are offered by your company?
  • Does your moving company provide a binding estimate or offer a guarantee that your estimate will come close to the final price?
  • How does your moving company calculate prices?
  • Do your employees have to pass background checks?
  • How does your moving company handle damage or loss claims?
  • Does your company provide guaranteed delivery dates?

How to choose the best movers in Denver.

Moving into a new home can be disruptive, time-consuming and nerve-wracking. Ease a little bit of that stress by hiring a top-rated moving company and letting them handle the most difficult parts of the process. 

Choosing a moving company can be difficult. Start by checking their online reputation. Read reviews and ratings on Thumbtack, and check to see if they’re on the Better Business Bureau website. Choose three to five movers who have mostly positive reviews, high ratings and few complaints. It’s also worth getting a few price estimates so you can see who’s offering a great deal and who may be overcharging for their services.

Once you’ve narrowed down your search to a few companies, ask for their moving company USDOT number and enter it into the FMCSA's online search tool. You'll see updated details about the company, including their insurance and safety information, compliance history and whether they are currently licensed.
