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.

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’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. 

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 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.

The team knocked it out of the park! They answered our call for a short-notice move, showed up within the timeframe we agreed on, offered flexibility at every turn. We booked them thinking we’d get a fair rate and ended up being one of the best/easiest moves we’ve had! Will definitely be calling them back for our next move and sending referrals their way!

Mario and his team arrived promptly in the morning and got straight to work. They were efficient and made the stress of moving disappear. With the right tools, pads, and dollies, they came prepared and ready to get my wife, baby and I moved to a new house! Hiring these guys was some of the best money I have spent in a while - to not have to worry about wrangling up some friends and getting them to focus, but instead having EZ Moving take control and get $%!* done was amazing. They knew what they were doing like they have done it 10,000 times before, were very kind and respectful, and all around were pleasant to be around. I didn't ever worry about any of my things getting broken or damaged including TVs, a moped, grill, large furniture, etc. I can't recommend these guys enough and will certainly be contacting them for any moves that I do in the future. Do yourself a favor and take the stress out of moving by getting Mario and his team on board for your next move!

Wouldn’t recommend... not careful with your belongings. Didn’t take any money off or reimburse for damage done to items during the move. Wanted to charge us for the time spent “getting lost”. Horrible customer service. Do your research before you hire movers... this place is a joke.

fast response. came by the same day to help me move a couple big items in my house

Told me he checked for anything in my dresser. Moved dresser and my cat was trapped inside. Had to take off all the Wrap to get cat out. Then they just threw the dresser in my POD without re-wrapping. Also I tipped $50, he commented on the tip (as if it wasn’t enough) the total move was a little over two hours and they only had to move like two or three big things(one bedroom). My boyfriend had to make runs to Home Depot for them as well(aren’t movers supposed to have the necessary items?). And the total was $430. I’m sorry. I would never use them again. I paid less than that for a complete move and unload from my last condo. All they did was move my furniture in a POD( NO unloading). The POD wasn’t right by my apartment, but he made it known it was ‘too far’. Didn’t appreciate his attitude and too much money. I would not use them again. Unprofessional and rude. I’m sorry but to comment on someone’s tip. Not ok. They are lucky I tipped. My cat is hurt and traumatized from being stuck in a wrapped dresser after the guy told me he checked it to my face(lied). I always appreciate help. But will not use their services again. My boyfriend had the same thoughts.

Andrew and Andy helped me out and they were awesome. They showed up exactly on time, worked efficiently throughout the moving process, and we're very nice to boot. Highly recommend!

Sean and Bill were very helpful moving my furniture back into my living/dining room after a minor remodel. I appreciated their professional and friendly approach, as well as their willingness to help me fiddle with the furniture arrangement. They were very careful with the furniture and the newly refinished floor and painted walls. Even though it was a small job, Sean responded promptly to the initial inquiry, and he fit my furniture move into his busy schedule. Yep, I’d hire the guys again!

They had a rough weekend but got the job done. We were scheduled to start on Sat but their truck was hit by a car and after many hours delay, realized they couldn’t do my job that day. Rescheduled for Sunday but their earlier job took longer than expected and then their lift stopped working. They finally arrived late Sun afternoon and even without their lift and the 4-ball roller furniture dollies they said they would bring, accomplished my move pretty quickly and within estimate. They overcame the various issues and moved us by the deadline we were told we absolutely had to be out of our location.

My company loved Elite Movers. Jerry, the owner, is very professional. He was on time, and got the job done quick and efficient. Their pricing was the best compared to the other quotes I got on Thumbtack. We are hiring them again for all of our future needs!

I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs movers.

I give Joe and Ruben 5 stars. I give the company 4 stars because there were some miscommunications between the person who set up this job and I. It created confusion for the movers and stress for me. Joe and Ruben were great and I would use this company again.
