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.

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. 

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 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.

Reliable, honest, nice movers. Highly recommend.

Setting up the move was easy. All contact was through messages. The representative was great with communication - timely and helpful. The movers arrived on time and did a fantastic job of loading the truck. They were personable and responsible. There were two small issues. One of the dressers was damaged in the move and the unloaded boxes placed in the garage were not as organized as they could be (gaps of room). Overall, I would recommend Crosstown moving and will most likely use them again.

This move involved moving two couches among three destinations in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. There were time constraints that had to be met because of scheduling an elevator at the condo in Miami. Renardo and his staff were very easy to work with, very professional in how they treated our furniture and will be used again if we need any more moves in the future. We highly recommend them.

These guys were awesome! Best move EVER! Our team of two men arrived on time and were prepared to work! And work they did! They carefully wrapped each piece of furniture and transported it all without damage. They were a complete pleasure to work with, and I must say that the $55/hour rate was so reasonable! I would highly recommend this moving company to anyone looking for a stress-free move! Thanks again APIKA USA!

I used this service after my movers were unable to complete my move. Sedric arrived early for the appointment & got started as soon as I arrived. I needed a King Sleep Number bed moved upstairs to the bedroom from the lower level and they are extremely heavy. He & his worker got the bed upstairs quickly with it touching the walls, & they were very professional. I will definitely use his services in the future & recommend him to friends.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! These gentleman were on time. They took great care of our furniture. They moved upstairs without bumping the furniture or marking the walls. They are fast and very polite. If you are looking for great movers at a great price, SunBiz is THE BEST!!! I’d give them 10 stars!

My husband and I chose to use a moving company for the first time. He is a disabled veteran so it was important to us that we not only stay in budget but also that we would be able to get all of our stuff moved by someone we could trust. We were very blessed to find this company. Our next move we are definitely going with this company. They were right on time, very professional and kind, answered all my questions and got everthing done in the allotted time frame. Also we were able to stay in our budget. I wouldn't move with anyone else. Thank you so much!

The 4 men who did the move were very professional and 3 of them worked extraordinarily hard. The company's office was very unprofessional. Only 75% of my items were moved as time ran out for the day and I have been required to hire someone (else) to complete the job.

Moving from one house to another was a complex task but the three people moving team made it an easy task. They showed up at the appointed time and took care of the loading and unloading a hassle free work. Good customer service and efficient work at a reasonable price. Overall, the team did a good job.
