Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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. 

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 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.

This was my first time hiring movers, and Move Mountains did an excellent job with my move to California. Between Erins professionalism, and Beaux and his teams capable moving skills, my furniture and car arrived in great shape and earlier than expected. They did a wonderful job and I would recommend them!

The Denver Cargo moving team did an amazing job on my move. They unloaded my PODs quickly and made sure everything was handled with care. Not one thing was broken. They set up all the furniture and moved a big freezer out of my basement. Plus they picked up many things that I bought on Facebook marketplace and brought them back. They even helped me remove all the trash. I highly recommend them and will use them again for furniture moving and heavy lifting. Thank you Denver Cargo for making my move feel so easy.

I cannot say enough great things about my experience with Samurai movers! They helped me move from two different homes into a new home. Their communication before the move was excellent and they made the whole process easy and stress free. On the day of the move, I had 3 amazing gentlemen- all extremely kind, respectful, friendly, and hard working. They worked quickly and carefully. I can’t believe how much they got done in such a short time. The pricing was extremely reasonable. I highly recommend them and would absolutely use them again.

Donny and his team were stellar from first communication onwards. From the level of responsiveness and flexibility (Donny helped me sync up my move with my roommate for the same day) to their sheer work ethic on the job, I would recommend Donny's Services to everyone. Too many flights of stairs to count with minimal marking/dirtying - it's the best move I've ever had out of 10+ moves. Keep truckin', Donny.

This was a great moving experience thanks to 1StopMovers! They were responsive, arrived early, were efficient, quick, and very kind. I was worried I wouldn't find anyone on such short notice, but they responded and got the job done. I would recommend them and use them next time I move!

Closed on our new house and needed large furniture and a whole bunch of boxes moved out of a relative’s house. They responded fast with a fair quote. Staff were professional and worked very fast. Skip renting your truck, let these folks move and drive your stuff wherever you need it!

Jah and Jarvis were AMAZING! These guys worked so hard - they carried a number of heavy items up to a second floor apartment in record time. There were a number of other movers for other apartments (since it was moving day for the entire building), and Jarvis and Jah ran circles around them. There was zero damage to any of our items, because these guys CARE about the job they do. I absolutely recommend PMA for any of your moving needs, and if I could give more stars, they’d definitely get a 10 out 10.

Pack N Move assisted us with getting one of our customers' Chest moved from inside her garage, upstairs to her bedroom. She was extremely satisfied with their service.
