Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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 much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

Great experience. I highly recommend Acme Moving. They contacted me quickly, were able to do a small job (moving only one piece of furniture) for a fair price, and the driver was on time and very professional.

I needed a large bed moved to my new location with narrow stairs and a small hallway to my room but hey got it in the room which I thought was impossible. They came early, did quick work, and moved the bed where I wanted. Excellent service. Would recommend to anyone moving large pieces of furniture.

We would recommend Rodney for any moving job you may have. He and his associate arrived on time and worked quickly and professionally. He did everything we asked without hesitation. We had him move an entire household of furniture due to a remodeling job we recently completed.

We went over on time, but I was extremely happy with the guys. One of the pieces was extremely difficult to move by using the elevator and they managed to move it without damaging any of the furniture. Once the difficult piece was in the truck, everything else seemed to go so fast. They were very nice and pleasant to work with. I would definitely hire them again.

I had 24 hours to move some furniture I purchased! All the quotes I received cost more than the furniture, plus weren't available for days! Green Warrior gave me a price I could afford and was on the job within 2 hours! He really "ran that extra mile" with service and did more than asked. I would use Green Warrior again in a heartbeat!

Needed Mr. Red, White and Blue for some heavy furniture lifting/moving. He responded to my request within a matter of minutes. He was not time and very professional. I will most certainly use him for future work and would recommend to everyone.

The gentlemen at Brown Transport had great pricing and handled all furniture with the upmost care! Even on a rainy day they were early to pick everything up and extremely careful with everything they moved. I’ll definitely use them again and recommended them to anyone that is looking for real professionalism and great work.

All of my furniture, some very heavy, had to be moved to another location. Three very respectful, well-spoken gentlemen that worked very well as a team introduced themselves immediately. The owner James showed me an itemized list with all the prices and asked if I agreed. He noticed that I didn't list a few things and I asked if we could. No worries. They asked a few questions, preferences actually, then quickly went to work. They wrapped each piece and treated it with care. The value for what they had moved was unlike any other quote. It was accurate with lined priced out items and no hidden fees. I will use this company to move to North Carolina in 6 years because I expect that they will have grown to accommodate out-of-town moves in the near future.

Thor and his wife Jasmine came to move my furniture and they are the two nicest people you will ever meet. They both were warm and welcoming, and loved interacting with my three year old and seven month old. They were prompt, professional and their prices were great. My wife and I will definitely use their services again. Thank you Thor and Jasmine, you both rock!!
