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.

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. 

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. 

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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

I called Sam and needed to move next day. Sam said no problem and had the movers at my storage as promised and moved my furniture into my home. I would definitely recommend Icon movers.

Two movers came when 3 was actually needed. Movers should have called for backup when they saw the extent of the packing and moving. I understand that it takes time to do an estimate. But a 15-hour move, over two days, into a storage unit is not acceptable.

I was in a panic because my move coincided with the recent hurricane, and was unsure if the moving company I’d hired were going to be able to move me. I called APIKA and they assured me they would be able to jump in and handle the move if the other company backed out. As it turned out, the original movers were able to help me, but you’ve no idea the peace of mind I had, knowing APIKA was willing to jump in with very little notice.

Moving was easy for the first time in my life. Jay and his partner had all my furniture and boxes moved in less than 2 hours, there and back. Great prices and quality work. If you're moving, this is the place to call!

I had a very complicated move with a lot of delicate and heavy things. I move a lot for work, luckily this time just down the street. After 10 moves in the last 15 years, it’s hard not to become picky about moving companies. These people are hands down the best in the business and the best I’ve worked with. They delivered an amazingly competitive (and fair) flat rate price. They surpassed my expectations and hope this review will bring them more business. Yohan and his team were gentlemen and didn’t rush the time of the move at all. Instead of piling and forcing things into the moving truck they did a second round at no charge. They are the best. Give them your move, you won’t regret it!!!

Moving is usually a miserable experience. Sam and Icon Moving made this a Great experience. 1st his pricing and communication was excellent, he would respond with every question I had before the move. The actual move was Great. Both Sam, the owner and his entire staff were totally professional. All of our furniture was plastic wrapped, furniture that needed assembly was reassemble perfectly. The actual move was great also. He and his staff were actually earlier then expected, they worked thru a stormy day, and we had everything go perfect. i just met Icon Moving, but I must give him a 10 of 10 reference. I am a CPA and would highly recommend him for your move. Thanks again Sam and crew, you might this move a pleasure. Philip Friedland, CPA Boca Raton/Delray Beach, Fl.

Excellent mover. I hired him to move a dining room set from Boca to Jupiter. He had good communication, was punctual, careful, safe, and honest. I wish all movers were like him, because good movers are hard to find. Will hire again if needed. Glad to have found Waters here on Thumbtack. Great job! ⭐️

Choosing a mover is a stressful decision. You hear horror stories about belongings being destroyed and your possessions being held for ransom. The moving company and Alex laid all my concerns to rest. They showed up on time, took care moving my belongings, and were professionals all the way. I would strongly recommend them for anyone needing a mover.

Do not hire these “movers” although they seemed to be nice guys they are not close to professional at all. I moved in within the same neighborhood, not only did it take 6 hours to move a 2 bedroom unit but EVERY and I mean every single piece of furniture these “moversmoved is severely scratched or damaged. They dragged my dresser on its side and now has scratches and the finish is completely taken off around the entire thing, some for 2 nightstands. My sectional couch has puncture holes and the fabric rubbed off in many places, they chipped glass or scratched the entire surface. I told them to be very careful moving my GLASS bedroom furniture I just paid 3.3k on and it now looks like it’s ready for the dump. Like I said seem to be nice guys but far far far from legitimate professional movers. I am now stuck with new furniture that looks like s**t because of them. One “mover” was on his phone the entire time, and when I approached them about these marks on my couch one man didn’t see them and the other stated they were there before it was moved, that is not true. The walls in my house I moved out of and the house I moved into have severely scuffed walls and even two holes in the wall from this top notch professional move. So I’m now out the money I paid for these “movers” plus furniture repair, and paint and patch work.

Crosstown moving is the absolute BEST! My husband and I asked for last minute help with our move when we had no furniture at all. If it wasn’t for Crosstown moving we would have no furniture for over a week! They responded within two minutes and had our furniture to us within 2 hours. They had a wonderful attitude the entire process and were always available for questions. Thank you for saving our move Crosstown! I can’t wait to use this company for all of our moving needs in the future.
