Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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. 

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. 

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. 

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.

The 4 gentleman that did my move were fantastic. They were fast and efficient. They worked nonstop in extreme heat and were pleasant the entire time. They were able to move our home with no damage.

I was quoted a price and that was exactly what I paid. They had about five movers working on my move. The property I was moving from in Georgia was a 3000 square-foot, five bedroom /three bathroom home. The movers came in and quickly got my belongings on the truck, and did a same-day move. Though I would not recommend a same-day move, for me getting it all done in one day was important. thank you Mama’s Movers!!

The Tate the Great Moving Team were absolutely outstanding and professional. I had a complex move with multiple locations and different items going certain places. The team handled it all in stride and everything got where it needed to be even though the day was a long one. When I get ready to move out of my rental home into a house again, I'm calling Tate the Great!

These guys are great! We were moving my 80 year old parents to a senior retirement community. I appreciate the patience they showed with my parents. This move required them to take items to my parents new home, my house, and my daughters house. The guys were organized in loading the truck so the unloading at each location was quick and easy. Thanks for making this an easy uneventful move! If I need a mover again you'll be the first call I make!

Still awaiting contact from the movers regarding my desk that they left at my old house. I've contacted them several times with no response yet. My previous movers were able to move the desk into my office without issue. The movers from 2 brothers could not get it out and gave up. I have already paid in full for the entire quoted move so I expect them to finish the job. There was some discussion that they were going to charge me the mileage to return. Unacceptable. I will revise my review if/when the work is completed the way it should be. They also left a massive gouge in the wall of my new home. Picture attached.

The movers did an excellent job moving my furniture. I did like the way they wrapped everything and made sure everything was secure. I had to leave while they were loading the last few items but returned right as they were finishing up. I asked did they complete the washer and dryer connection since I was charged additional for them to disconnect both and reconnect at my new home. They advised me yes they did it, however it was not done. So I had to have someone else come in and do it. Other than that everything was great.

I submitted my request and they quickly called us and accommodated us the same week to pick up our new washer and dryer from Home Depot and bring it to our house also bring down the old washer and dryer to the garage. Their estimate was the lowest of all the other moving companies. They were at the facility on time . Provided great service. I will be recommending them to all of our family members.

I hired this company because the reviews were great as far as the care and attention they put into your personal items. Todd, the owner was great to communicate with and very friendly. They charged me twice for my deposit - which was mildly annoying but ok.... I was told 3-4 hours for a 2 bedroom home, and boy, were they wrong!!! ...fast forward to moving day.... the movers showed up 2 hours early, which normally would be great! However, I had already communicated I needed them to come at noon bc I had stuff to do before they got there- so when I advised them that, they proceeded to come anyways, not giving me a choice. I made it work.... they came, had 2 movers bc when I asked for more I was told it wasn't necessary bc it would "be too crowded" they were friendly and pretty speedy in the beginning.... taking into consideration it was 90+ degrees that day and I had a few large items I figured it would be on the longer end than quoted. what I didn't expect was 9 hrs!!!!! they slowed down about half way through the packing from my old home and on several occasions, one stopped to chat about random stuff- while doing nothing related to moving while chatting. It took over 4 hrs to pack a two bedroom apartment and they didn't even get everything- they left all fragile stuff for me and my family to get.... they were not at all notified of any of the specific info that they were supposed to know about, like the second location I had already given the owner a address for- after several times on the phone, I expected them to have all that info already?!? we finally get to new location, and although they were faster unloading there, they put everything in wrong rooms and I had to spend days sorting it all out. now we are to getting my money..... as they were about to leave, they tell me 982.00 is my bill.... no breakdown of why it is so much, no receipt, just a man on the phone who could not answer any questions for me and only interested in taking my money... I was told Todd was on vacation and would advise me of these charges later... I contacted him 2 days ago and still have yet to receive a response. I feel lied to and cheated... I would never hire this company again. It appears from other recent reviews that this is a common issue for this company- misquoting times and overcharging. I wouldn't want to respond to my customers either if I was responsible for this kind of business practice... I'm very disappointed in what I received from this company. I'm moving again in a year and had hoped this was a company I would be able to hire again.... next time I will do it myself for 9 hrs- for FREE.
