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.

Wow They never called me with an estimate of time (after being 2 hours late) and when they FINALLY called me, I was informed that the equipment needed to move my piano was on a truck in Miami. I booked them a week ago because they specifically said they move pianos. Now I am forced to hire another company the day of my move. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

We had a last minute move as the townhome we were supposed to move into had something happen and we suddenly needed help lifting everything from our moving truck into storage. Diggs Haul helped us short notice and were very quick! They had excellent communication, a friendly team, and good price. There's no way we could've done it without their help. Thank you!

We needed last minute movers, and Jackboy was quick to respond to our inquiry. They were able to provide excellent same day service. They did a great job, and we’ll definitely keep them in mind next time we need movers.

I would highly recommend Jeff and Richard to anyone needing their services. They were a pleasure to have around and kept the atmosphere upbeat and fun. The moving experience turned out to be a joy. My furniture was carefully wrapped, nothing was damaged, and they even gave suggestions as to where to place items when I couldn't decide -- and their suggestions turned out to be perfect! No time was wasted and the move was completed in record time. I give these movers a 10 out of 10!

Excellent customer service from beginning to end. Contract was presented prior to scheduling move with prices clearly stated. I was contacted by text confirming each step (contract, payment, appointment) and was given a call the morning of the move 30 minutes prior to arrival. I was the first move of the day and the team was there exactly at 8a and got straight to work. They wrapped every item with blankets and plastic wrap and then unwrapped each item at the final location and put everything exactly where I wanted it. They were extremely careful as I had just had the walls painted and some of the furniture was practically brand new - everything was in perfect condition when they finished. I've already recommended them to my neighbor who is moving in a couple of weeks. Thank you to the entire team for making this move as stress-free as possible.

The owner was very quick to respond and was able to get us movers last minute the day before our move. Adrian & Richard we’re amazing. Showed up on time. Super nice & professional. Saved mine and my partners lives helping us move everything in and upstairs. Only took an hour and a half for our packed 20 ft truck. They even cleared out a king mattress and box spring for us that we didn’t want. Would definitely recommend.

These guys were fast and like robots. I hired 3 movers because that is the fastest rate and boy did it pay off. They finished moving under my guess of time by an hour and I never saw one of them even take a break. Great hire and I recommend them to anyone. You won't be disappointed.

It has taken me a few days to get my thoughts together to describe this company because I didn't want to respond while angry, but rather construct a post that is informative to anyone considering hiring this moving company to transport your belongings. That said, my experience with American Movers was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE, and I would neither hire them again, nor recommend them to anyone who takes pride in their possessions. The workers were unprofessional, and seemingly unconcerned with handling our belongings with care. The way they piled our things into the storage unit was unthoughtful and unacceptable. If this is indeed a "professional" company, my question would be, "by whose standards?" When you hire a moving company, there are two words you should never have to say, and those words are," be careful." The first time I had to say it was one time too many when spending hard-earned money for professional movers. I'm addition, I could have dented the wall myself for free rather than paying this company to do it. All this to say, American Movers will never again get my business. My wife and I have worked too hard to accumulate the things we have to leave it in the hands of a company who seemingly couldn't care less. I'm sorry to have to write this kind of review, but we were incredibly disappointed with this company. In fact, I think we'll use YELP next time.
