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.

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’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. 

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.

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.

Very friendly and hard working College Movers. They made our move much easier. I would only suggest they bring more dollies to help with the work. Both gentleman were new. First time moving anybody so they were inexperienced in loading a moving truck but they were still able to complete the task in a timely manner.

Best moving experience! They took the stress off my move by properly communicating and loading the truck. They masterfully organized the truck to fit everything, nothing broke in theove, and the three movers Matt, KJ, and Ace were polite and professional. I'd not only recommend Diggs as a company, but I slso recommend Matt, KJ, and Ace for future moves.

Great experience! Very friendly and eager to move everything we needed. We had them move our furniture to a pod in the driveway for renovations and I wouldn’t even think of another company to help us move it back in.

The movers did a great job considering how much work the move required. They were a little late and as much as the representative contacted me to book the move never heard a thing after and this was an expensive move. A check in or at least a thank you after completion and payment received would’ve been nice. Customer service needs improvement for sure.

Sky and his crew from legend movers arrived on time and moved my furniture from my 4 bedroom two story house to my new house several miles away. Much of the furniture were heavy bulky peices. They moved it with ease, were careful and respectful and very professional. I was very impressed and highly recommend them to anyone needing help with moving.

Our move was delayed almost six hours due to a mess of unplanned complications (none of this was Lets Move's fault). Despite being shorthanded, Quincey was still able to get a crew to us on a Saturday and get all our stuff moved by the end of the day. Johnny and Isaiah were professional, speedy, and took excellent care of our items. Highly recommended, and we'll definitely use Lets Move again.

Don't send a beat up old Rider truck, send enough straps so they can move mattress and large items more quickly and safely. Tape but no dispenser and not even scissors or box cutters. Poor movers did not even have gloves. Movers were polite and careful but the tools the company provided were minimal and if we didn't have our items in the house it would have taken forever. Additionally, the movers took a long time and extra steps because they did seem to have a process for how to load or move boxes out of the way to get in and out of entries.

Communication with Phil was timely and effective. He even called me on Thanksgiving to ensure final preparations were handled. On moving day, the movers showed up right on time and went to work right away. The entire process was smooth and efficient. We were able to move our daughter without any setbacks

Phil’s guys moved us a few days ago. They showed up on time and were polite, friendly and ready to work. They were respectful with our belongings and eager to help in any way they could. They worked hard and fast and we are more than pleased with the service they provided. The estimate provided before the move was incredibly accurate with no surprises or hidden fees. We would definitely use American Movers Orlando again if we ever needed moving services and we would absolutely recommend them to friends and family in the future.

I needed a very heavy piece of furniture moved up a flight of stairs and the old one taken out. The guys showed up with everything they would need, took extra good care of my furniture to make sure there would not be any damage and they were very quick and professional about the move. I would definitely recommend for your next move.

The movers showed up on time and even gave a 30 minute heads up when they were on the way! They arrived with a huge truck so less trips were required. All of my furniture was professional wrapped with moving blankets and plastic to protect it. The gentlemen where very professional and helpful. No complaining or foul language at all! These men are strong! My dresser alone weighs 400lbs and they moved it without a problem.

Dustin and Daniel and their team did a great job with our cross town move in Winter Park. They finished packing for me and loaded on Tuesday, and then unloaded on Wednesday after the closing of my new home. I would definitely use them again and will refer for Orlando area moves!
