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.

Reviews for Roswell movers

Falcon Moving was hands down fantastic. We hired 3 movers to move our 4 bedroom house. Their communication was fantastic, both before and during the move, and their price was the most affordable compared to other movers. They took care to wrap furniture and not a single piece was damaged. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable, reasonably priced mover!

Awesome moving experience with Master Movers. We originally hired them for specialized packing, including over 80 pieces of artwork, an extensive china collection and 50+ lamps, and were so impressed with their deep expertise, that we turned our entire move over to them, including coordinating others hired separately. The team was excellent, professional and committed to ensuring my family’s move was seamless, doing everything it took to get it all done. They made a multi-day packing and moving job not only painless, but enjoyable. Could not recommend more highly for any of your moving, packing and storage needs.

The movers Mike and ED did a great job. The only issue I had was that somehow they had me schedule for a week later than my original move date and what my contract stated, so the movers came two hour late due to administrative error by their boss.

Jordan and Deandre called ahead of arrival to let me know that they were en route. They were punctual and friendly. The move experience couldn’t have been less stressful. They wrapped all my items and moved them with care. Can’t beat the value for the price. Go with Easy Moving!!!

Devon and Dante seamlessly helped us move our belongings during our "trek" of a move! These guys hiked up our long driveway and tackled two flights of stairs with ease to get everything in jist the right spot in our home. We couldn't have done this move without them, and we will definitely be recommending their services to friends and family, and use them again if any future moves! Thanks again!

We did not have a good experience with MyPorter, however the 5 star rating is for the excellent customer service we received from Roosevelt (one of the movers hired for our move). His patient professionalism & work ethic canceled out all of the negative aspects of our move (inventory documented incorrectly, porters coming/going during the allotted time, van wasn't large enough to accommodate all of the furniture, etc). I would 100% use this company again if he was the mover assigned to the project. Thank you, Roosevelt, for making a stressful move pleasant!

These men where wonderful movers. They arrived on time, wrapped the larger items and moved them with care. Even with the bad weather ( it showed rather heavily) they completed the job in a timely manner with no damages. Tip:You have to mention exactly what you need moved(front loading washer is a different price from a top loading washer) and make sure everything is in boxes ( they will not move things you have not mentioned previously that aren't in boxes)

Excellent movers! The nicest team and took care of everything with such care with several antiques! I had some confusion because of a multi-family move and they were so accommodating and kind! Can not recommend them enough. Gibran and his team were outstanding! Will absolutely use them for every move in the future.

Where to start! All I can say is these guys are amazing! We had a pretty big move that took longer than expected and they all worked non-stop to make sure the task was completed as fast as possible. Everything they moved was packed safely and securely, and not a single item was damaged upon destination. If you are looking for a moving company, look no further. They are by far the best company I have worked with in all my moves. A+ in all regards.

Simply amazing! I'd definitely hire this team again. They were so thoughtful and attentive. I had a large and heavy armoire that needed to be moved upstairs and around some pretty narrow corners. They were able to move it without damaging my walls. I wish every moving company was so thoughtful and showed this attention to detail. THANK YOU!
