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.

Great Mover
Lenny VanGo Moving ServicesLenny VanGo Moving Services
I have moved many times in life, and this was by far the best move by Moving and Cruising! They were punctual, great value, professional and top quality. They even added extra pieces to the job, but didn't want to increase the fee. They hare highly recommended. Good people!!!

Lenny and his team made this the smoothest and easiest move my wife and I have ever had. The move was easy to set up, they were on time and I have never seen men being paid by the hour move faster. Nothing was damaged and they did a final walk through to see if they had missed anything and offered to move anything else. They were extremely polite and personable. We highly recommend them. If we ever have the need to move anything in the future they will be the people we call.

Movers: A little old guy, a big old guy, and a slim young guy. While moving a $200+ kitchen island down a flight of stairs, they progressively destroyed it; bit by bit; never stopping to evaluate and figure out how not to destroy it further. I told them not to move it, but they did, anyway. They disassembled some things and, then, lost all the screws and my dresser mirror wooden brace. Unprepared and clueless.

The Moving and Cruising team are the best!!! We are so glad we went with this company for our moving needs. Our move had 2 different locations to pick up from as well as some things that had to be assembled and they had no problems with it whatsoever. Mind you, I also had to reschedule a couple times and change things about what we needed as well and they were still so accommodating! Oh and don’t forget it decided to rain while we were trying to move! Even through all of this they were responsive, friendly, professional, punctual, flexible, the list goes on and on! I can’t say enough good things about this company. Highly recommend!

The owner of the company, Chaz, made himself easily accessible and was friendly and responsive from start to finish. My move was rather difficult in the sense that it was a lot harder than I imagine the movers expected it to be - all the furniture was exceptionally heavy, bulky, and delicate and it took a looooong time to disassemble and reassemble (4+ hours for only about 10 pieces of furniture and 10 boxes). That said, Chaz honored the original quote and the movers took a lot of care with each item (everything was thoroughly wrapped and padded). I didn't find any damage to the furniture or the pickup/dropoff houses. Can't ask for more than that - we're really happy.

They were amazing! Very accommodating with my moving schedule. Showed up at the on time and went right to work. We will use them again if needed.

They were on time and very efficient. I had gotten two other quotes that seemed quite expensive to me considering I was moving from a partially furnished condo and had very little furniture and no major appliances to move. With Lenny VanGo I ended up paying almost $900 less than the first quote I received. Lenny is a stand-up guy.

Matt called me back right away and was on the spot - giving me a fair rate and an excellent time frame. He got the job done quickly and did take care to make sure that everything in the move was done right - his gear isn't really set up for 'moving' - so you do need to be flexible and anticipate the open air trailer but this worked wonderfully for us.

I had a very small move of 7 to 8 furniture items going from one side of town to the other. Can you believe they packed everything in a small van? - Mini van sized. Everything was fine upon delivery. Great packing guys, and wonderful service!

Lenny and his workers were efficient, pleasant and really followed through. Lenny verified and re-verified that we were good to go on the day of the move which gave us confidence in his reliability and attention to detail. All went smoothly--and NO hidden or extra charges. Thanks, Lenny. Cecile and David
