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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Just needed five or six heavy items moved, the movers were clear professionals moving everything carefully and efficiently. Everything was moved from A to B with no damage and the guys were so nice and accommodating!

Efficient, professional, and friendly. I moved upstairs in the same building and they knocked it out in about an hour. I will definitely call Care Free Moving again. Oh- and the price was way less than many other moving companies I have used.

I scheduled a move for Thursday. They wanted to move it to Wednesday, No problem. I waited for them, no show & they informed me that it wasn’t going to work, no problem. They rescheduled the move for 10:00 the next morning. At 10:00 no movers, no communication. I contacted them again, “ we can’t get there until 4:00. No problem, see you at 4:00. At 6:00 with no communication again I realize they didn’t care about this move. I messaged them again & 2 hours later, no reply. They had me waiting patiently for 2 days. If they weren’t interested in the job they shouldn’t have taken it. I wouldn’t waste your time with ER Cleaning and Moving. Makes me also wonder about Thumb Tack.

My husband and I just moved to the area from Wisconsin. It was a long and exhausting trip. However, when we found Carlson Custom Interiors to help us move the rest of our furniture, it was a complete relief!! Trevor and Josh moved our things very efficiently and fast! We were very impressed and appreciative! We will definitely call Carlson the next time we move and we highly recommend them to anyone who is!! Thank you, Trevor and Josh!

They did a great job and the only time a mover wasn't late.

The guys did a great job, and moved everything in exactly the time quoted. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again or refer them to my friends. Thanks Jerry and Min for helping move us into our new home!

My two movers were excellent, timely, and very patient with me. We realized my error in not having requested equipment along with my movers (double check you've selected all the correct options when you request on their website!!) and quickly had to scramble for a Uhaul. Luckily, there's a location five minutes from me that had a vehicle. My lead Bellhop came with me to pick up the truck while his partner stayed and kept moving boxes. While I paid (literally) for my error, my Bellhops were still able to move things in record time and keep me close to my quoted time. I would definitely work with them again.

I needed a piano and few other large items moved from golden to the springs. They were very accommodating at the last minute, arrived on time and were very efficient. I will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a mover. Piano was up and out of the house within 10 minutes on the truck!!

They moved a baby grand piano, tons of bookshelves, a huge office desk, a foosball table, pinball machine, and a king-size foam mattress and 3 bedroom sets (in addition to boxes) in the snow and they made it look easy. Loved working with them. Great attitudes and sense of humor, which, to me, is invaluable during the chaos of a move.

Still in the middle of moving but so far these guys have been great! We hired them for 3 guys to move 2 apartments into one townhouse. They are very respectful and professional. Making sure to take good care of all my furniture. I'll update when all is done, but so far they have been awesome.

Lavon was excellent. They arrived early. Completed the move quickly. Were very professional and had a great attitude. I would highly recommend!

They did not lay down anything to protect the carpet, even though the description of their service online said that they would. It was a snowy and muddy day they tracked mud and snow all through the old and new apartment. They took 1 hour to move, and did so by stacking all the furniture and each mover taking a huge pile by themselves. Which caused them to gauge our leather couch, and scratch several pieces of furniture. Since they finished an hour early we asked them to move some of the larger trash to the dumpster for us, they agreed based on time left, but then left as soon as they got the check without saying anything. Not sure what we are paying for, or why they got 5 stars in the past. I’ve had much better service through other movers, and would not use these guys again. Oh yeah, as I’m writing this I still have 30 minutes on the clock that I’m paying them for.

The two gentlemen that moved us were courteous and super hard working. They were about 15 minutes late, but got the job done in 5 hours, which is about what I had anticipated. My only complaint was about the billing. The agreement was that they would start billing from the time of arrival at the house, and they instead started billing at the time of their departure from their facility. We compromised, but the movers should have been made aware of this agreement.

I hired Carlson for an office move. The guys were very friendly and quick. They went above and beyond what was expected and listened to anything you wanted done. The part that makes them stand out is their guys. When I was paying my invoice and the guys were getting ready to leave, one of my employees was carrying some small boxes from our move she had in her car. When the guys saw her they immediately offered her help and carried her stuff into the office for her. A++++
Kristin C.
The crew was kind, punctual, efficient and enjoyable to interact with. They worked hard, were responsive to our needs, and went above and beyond our expectations for a smooth move. We would highly recommend this company for their professionalism and appreciate the service they offer to the community.

These men were more than outstanding! They were prompt and so helpful. When we arrived at our garage, the door(electric) was stuck from excessive snow and the rapidly solved the problem. Moving is stressful and they made it as easy as possible. Brava!

Great communication from the start of requesting a quote through the regular messages regarding their arrival time to start the move. Made a high set of stairs with some really heavy items look rather easy. Kind, hard-working, and quick! Really great guys that I expect to use again in the next year.

Carlson helped us complete our move in a timely, efficient manner by taking more of our stuff in one trip than we'd thought would be possible, saving us many small trips on our own. They started a bit later than we'd scheduled but that just gave us more time to pack so everything worked out well.
Jen J.
Joe and Courtney did a great job with a very difficult job we set before them. They had to move our sleeper sofa (extremely heavy) out of a narrow basement hallway with a turn. Joe said it’s the heaviest piece of furniture he’s ever lifted. But they kept at it and made it happen. Joe was responsive, punctual and very professional. We would absolutely use 1stopmovers again. Thank you!
