Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Should I buy moving insurance?

Your homeowners or renters insurance policy may or may not protect your belongings if they get lost or damaged during a move. If you’re moving valuable items, or if you’re moving a great distance, it could be a good idea to invest in moving insurance.

Interstate movers are required to offer you full value protection and released value protection to help reimburse you in case of damage or loss. If you’re moving within your state, check with your state’s consumer affairs agency to see if your state has rules and requirements regarding moving insurance and valuation coverage.

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. 

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. 

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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

Probably the best moving experience I have had in the past few years. We all HATE moving. But the team at Dynamic made it the best possible experience. The movers were on time very respectful of my time and did a great job. I would tell anyone to hire them for a move.

Apika USA was very knowledgeable and able to help me move quickly. I could not have done it without them. Their moving tricks save time and help you get the best value for your move.

Florida Smart Movers are A+ movers! They went to work at the get go and didn't stop until the work was done. They wrapped the furniture well and worked very efficiently and effectively. Glad to have hired them for my micro move!

This was the worst experience I have ever had with movers. When you're dealing with all the stress of moving out, having someone cancel on you with 2 hours of anticipation over text was the most unprofessional and pathetic excuse for a moving company. Horrible!

I contacted Apika USA Movers and spoke to Anastasia. She took an inventory on the phone and gave me a quote. She then scheduled a visit to document the items and confirmed the price. She was professional and very nice to work with. The movers came 20 min early and Alex introduced himself and they went to work, wrapping everything in blankets and carrying it out the door. Total professionals and removed the stress from moving. The next time we move there is only one moving company I will call. Apika...the best.

Crosstown Moving handled a small move for me today. James and his co-worker responded immediately, gave me a great price quote, picked up and moved the item safely and FAST. Miami is full of unprofessional people and companies. Crosstown, however, was the BEST company o have ever used in this city. Their truck is beautiful and available for small or large moves. I HIGHLY recommend Crosstown.

The guys (Tom and Michael) of Missionary Movers showed up on time and had pleasant dispositions. They were professional and responsive. The move was originally scheduled for an earlier date, however I had an illness that required us to reschedule to December 30th, a time when people are with friends and family. The Company was accommodating and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is considering a move.

I needed some heavy items moved and reached out to two companies on Thumbtack on Friday. The first company to respond booked an appointment on Sunday and didn’t show up or call. After the prior bad experience, it refreshing to meet a moving company like G3T-Services. I reached out to them this morning and they responded promptly and showed up when promised and moved two heavy pieces of furniture without a scratch to the walls or furniture. I plan to use them again for any moving services and highly recommend them to anyone who is need of such services!

I had a small move and the 2 gentlemen that came got right to it. Secured my TVs and stacked the boxes great. I really really appreciate their low prices!! Already told them that I will need to use their service in another week or so since this was a temporary move.
Sabrina C.
Had a last minute moving situation and Me.Reid was not only able to accommodate us but also went above and beyond with extra items that we decided during the move to include. He always reached out to discuss any cost adjustment prior to changes and was more than fair. Would highly recommend him and his team.

Great experience! I love a company that does what they say they are going to do. Corey and Alex arrived early and did a great job! They were total professionals and worked quickly and carefully - and the price was great! We will definitely be using Drop A Truck again! As a matter of fact, we're moving my dad from Jupiter to Boca in the next few weeks and will be using them for that move. Highly recommend!
