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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Every aspect of our move was top notch. The moving consultant was knowledgeable and pleasant, and the movers were great. If I need a mover, I’ll be calling Pick Up Movers again. In fact, I would recommend them to anybody who needs a mover.

Thanks a lot Pick Up Movers for completing my move within the scheduled time and for charging me a very moderate amount. But I would like to thank you especially for a perfect move. I was never hoping to get such a brilliant service from any movers. The moving crews were simply too good for my move. Nothing was missing, nothing is broken or damaged. It seemed like the entire move was tailor made for me.

My recent experience with 404 Movers was outstandingly successful. I contracted 3 of their movers for 3 hours to move a two bedroom apartment. These movers, Derrick, Henderson, and Ryan were, respectful, courteous, conscientious, and thorough. They called to inform us of their ETA and to confirm location and appointment. They arrived prepared with sufficient material, supplies, and equipment. They arrived on time and worked at a very consistent pace to wrap, load, unwrap, and unload our items with notable care. We were prepared for their arrival by having practically everything boxed up and ready to load with the exception of the furniture and large appliances. Though the move took 45 minutes longer than anticipated, it was not attributable to any fault of theirs. I was impressed with their stick-to-it-ness with regard to moving our items down the 3 flights of stairs of the apartment we were moving out of and up the one flight of stairs for the apartment we were moving in to… on what turn out to be a very sunny and warm day. All-in-all these movers represented 404 Movers well and served our purposes well. As a result, I can unreservedly recommend them to those in need of, what turn out for us to be, a very reliable and affordable moving company. Thanks guys,for a job well done.

They came when they said they would and did an extremely good job of moving furniture from Carrollton to Newnan. Daniel and Julio were very polite and friendly. There were no "hidden fees" and their estimate was right on. Would hire them in a heartbeat for any moving job.

I couldn't have been more pleased with the courtesy and customer service of this company and the movers going well above and beyond to ensure that my goods were well protected during the move, and they delivered almost impossibly fast! I have never witnessed a work ethic of young adults in the early 20s as I did with the packers/movers. What was a very stressful time was made more bearable by everyone I dealt with in this company. I highly recommend!

I cannot say enough great things about Horace and Jeremiah. They called to tell me they were about 10 minutes out, and asked if they could start 15 minutes early! They were so friendly and helpful! They did not stop and what I thought would be 4 hours tops was much more. They didn’t complain and got the job done. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I only booked with Prolific Movers the day before my move when High Grade Movers took my deposit and ghosted me. I think I won by ending up with Prolofic!

Anyone looking for moving help will not be disappointed using Stephen from Helping Hands. Stephen and his team were hard working, professional and treated our items like their own. They took extra care when moving not to mark up walls or scrape any furniture. They wrapped fragile items (and dressers so they did not have to be emptied). If needed, I would definite call these great guys again. They were nothing short of amazing!!!

We couldn’t have asked for a better company to move our stuff. Very responsive on communication, reasonably priced, and were hard workers. They handled the furniture with care and used pads and wrap to protect everything. Everything. It was great. Will recommend to my family and friends.

I called Saturday afternoon and they moved me the next day in the morning. They are friendly, quick and professional. I had furniture that I was not sure they could get into my new apartment but before I knew it they got it with little to no trouble. I would highly recommend them and use them again.

I had an appointment for Mama's Movers on Friday with a window of 2:30 until 4:30. No one ever showed up despite the phone calls promising me they were on there way. It is Saturday evening at 7:16 pm and no one ever showed up. I think they are a total scam operation.
