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.

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.

I highly recommend this moving company! Fast, efficient, pleasant and personable, very willing to please, and they were happy and enjoying moving my stuff. The next time I move I will call The Other Side Movers!

Danny came by and did an estimate. Matthew and Casey moved us. They were actually under the estimate they moved so fast and so professionally. We have moved a lot and this is by far the most stellar moving company we have worked with.

Estimate over the phone was acceptable to book the move. On moving day the estimated time was exceeded by 4 1/2 hours, adding hundreds of dollars more. I would not have booked the move at that cost. Most expensive move I have ever had by far.

It was the best choice to have movers assist with my move. They were on time, friendly, careful with my items, and finished loading and unloading ahead of schedule. It make the overall move experience more worry-free for me, and I would recommend Bellhops to anyone moving in the Denver area.

Denver Door to Door Movers are the best movers I have ever seen. They were on-time, extremely conscientious with the furniture and fast. They even worked with my short time frame to complete early. I have moved several times in the Denver Metro area, home and office, and they were the best. As I need movers of any kind, I will definitely call Denver Door to Door Movers every time. Thank you for your excellent service! Sincerely, Mark

This was my first time hiring movers and it was SO worth it. The movers were very professional and friendly despite having to move so much of my heavy furniture down and then back up so many flights of stairs, in the rain!! I was so impressed by their strength and efficiency and would 100% recommend them and hire them again. They were also more affordable than other moving companies I looked at.

Jon & John from Technique Moving, LLC just finished moving my 1 bed/1 bath apartment to a storage unit nearby. Jon communicated well from the time I contacted him to inquire about my move up until I thanked him for his services and the job was complete. Both Jon & John showed up ready to work, and didn't waste any time moving my belongings. They were friendly and professional throughout the move and great guys to work with. Overall, Technique Moving met my expectations and my money was well spent. Happy to help out a small business as I myself own a small business and know how important each and every client is. I recommend Technique Moving to anyone looking for affordable, friendly and efficient service. Thanks guys!

Receptionist on phone told me there would be 3 people to move the piano (after I had specifically asked). To move a grand piano successfully, you need 3 movers. 3 came, but one was the wife (who sat down the entire time) and only 2 movers worked. They did not know what they were doing. My husband finally had to step in and help and make suggestions and show them how to move the piano the short distance across my living room. It was a total waste of money. So very disappointed. They are not professionals at all. I felt deceived.
