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. 

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. 

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.

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.

The scheduled movers we hired no showed but Elite Movers came to rescue. They responded to my request in a timely manner and were able to work our last minute move; SAME DAY.

Ronnie and his helper moved me Kennesaw to Cartersville in record time! They were courteous and respectful of my time and belongings. They had all of the moving materials and tools and took care of everything. I was beyond pleased with their work. I am recommending them to a neighbor that is moving soon and will definitely use them next time I move!

I highly recommend Champion Movers and will use them again in the future. Thomas and company were very courteous, professional, and affordable. They moved our furniture with ease! The move estimate (time and money) was exactly like they said it would be so budgeting was easy. I give the 5+ stars!

I have used several movers in the past 5-6 years and haven't had that bad of service. However, after using 404 Movers with Mitchie and his crew I realize how moving should be. Mitchie and his guys are hard working, fast, professional and you should not hesitate to use them for your move. They also have very aggressive rates. Thank you very much Mitchie!

This is my 2nd move since relocating to Georgia, the first movers I used were not professional at all which had me Leary for this move. But my worries were quickly put to rest yesterday. I have found movers for life whom I will refer others. They were professional, worked quickly, good communication and most of all took great care of my possessions. I was very pleased, thanks guys.

DS Movers is a scam. They subcontracted my move to a delivery company (without telling me) which came (4 hours late than agreed with DS Movers) without even a screwdriver and without knowing how to disassemble and reassemble any kind furniture. The move took forever, my bad is still half assembled and I had to assemble my son's bed myself. I should have sued them. Do not listen to what he says: he suggested to cancel but only because he was late. He did not say he was not available but just ask another company to do the move (and not a moving company): this is not legal. Also, I paid $150 advance + 4100/hour. No flat fee. Be serious.

They showed up ready to go. I really dislike moving, and they made it as easy as possible. Helped me get the truck set up, moved more than I even originally asked, and we're friendly as can be. I recommend them to anyone, and will ask them to help again on my next move.

T & J were AWESOME movers! From the start they were very responsive and always replied quickly to my messages. They were also extremely flexible with arranging a date and time to help with my move. They unloaded 4 U-boxes is about an hour and moved a refrigerator to the kitchen and a washer and dryer to the second level of our new home. The price is also UNBEATABLE! They were extremely professional and punctual. You will not regret hiring them for your move.

Always provide a "back-up" if you are unable to make the appointment. I had a Sunday appointment for a move that had to be done by Monday. I text the Mover after 1pm. He called me around 130pm and stated he could not help me move on our scheduled date because he had an emergency. He did offer to help me the following day and he said he would take money off IF he was capable which he wasn't sure of. I understand emergencies happen, but I was put in a great bind. I had to move on that day with no exceptions. I'm thankful for Shepherd House Movers for completing the move for me last minute. Tony had great reviews and very professional and kind when communicating prior to the move. His prices beat many also. My advice to him would be, provide back-up when you cannot be present.
