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.

 

 

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.

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.

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.

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 I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Helped with a last minute move of some heavy equipment and were fast and professional!

Invest in the equipment needed to move furniture i.e a dolly (or two), furniture pads & tape. Don’t show up to move anyone without equipment. Wrapping furniture prevents damaging the furniture and walls. I lost a nice, new cabinet with an electric fireplace because it wasn’t wrapped.

Great experience, they were on time and had equipment to move a washer and dryer up and down a freshly hardwood staircase with scratching or damaging the stairs or the floors.

We had two very heavy antique dressers in our house that had to be moved downstairs. The Everything Goes Moving team was quick, came prepared with the right equipment, and ensured the furniture was moved safely and without any damage. We’ll happily hire them again for future moving needs.

They were a bit unprepared upon arrival, but made the proper arrangements to acquire the right moving equipment and did a great job. I would hire them again, but would be more descriptive to what is being moved to ensure the right tools come with them.

Moving is not always easy but with RLMJ it went smoothly. They came prepared with just the right amount of movers, and equipment to get the job done. RLMJ was able to move my items with care. They treated my items as though it belonged to them. In addition, movers were fast. I will definitely recommend them to others and will use them again without hesitation.

Great experience. Awesome movers!! I would like to start by saying that our move was handled with expertise and professionalism from start to finish. Their team came fully equipped and on time. They actually moved our 4 bedroom home in a good amount of time and with no mishaps. I can definitely say that our belongings were in good hands with 404 Movers! Thanks again.

Integrity Movers said they had tools but forgot them. The truck was too small causing an additional trip which costs more than it should have & it took 11 hours with 4 men moving things. Too much time & money. Explained in detail everything that needed to be moved. They need to be better prepared with the right equipment for the job.

Tiffany and her partner were on time and efficient with my move. They had all the necessary equipment to securely move all of my boxes without any damages. They were also accommodating with their price for the type of service I needed. I would hire them again in a heartbeat - 5 Stars!

I was overwhelmed with the quality of work Tate movers performed. The accommodated my last minute schedule change, and was on time! They were so professional, and had all the upscale equipment an upscale moving company would use. I had expensive pieces and they treated them like museum pieces. They were so neatly in there uniforms. Everyone they came in contact with during the move where impressed. They were really responsible for the quality of move you receive. I have used a number of companies in the past and from now on Tate will be my moving Co.

They’re not your fancy “put on a show with our equipment and uniforms” movers, but for the price I paid, there is no comparison in how satisfied I am. Other movers estimated my job at $500-800 and these guys were able to do it for about half of that. Showed up right on time and worked hard in the heat getting stuff up my steep driveway. Would definitely recommend.

Jason responded to my request within an hour and the men who moved a large piece of exercise equipment from the leasing office to my apartment the next morning were on time and efficient. I felt very comfortable with them. I was in a bind because of another company’s shipping error and Faith Moving was a blessing. Faith Moving’s rate was reasonable and job was completed with no issues. Thank you

EXCELLENT MOVE!!! I cannot say enough about Derrick and Jhaleel and Mark! This was the smoothest move I've had. They were on time, quiet as church mice and took care of fragile wear. They made sure to ask where I wanted everything. They also came equipped with tools and packing goods so I'm able to take extra boxes back to Home Depot. As a single woman I appreciate their thoughtfulness and respect. I'd recommend TRG and this crew for any move.

Ronnie and Jonathan did a great job with our move. they came completely prepared with all the necessary equipment to move our furniture safely and efficiently. They wrapped and protected all furniture, getting everything to our apartment safely with no damages. I was extremely pleased with the work performed and the professionalism of Ronnie and Jonathan. I would recommend them to anyone and will most definitely use them again in the future. Thanks!

Jon and Joe helped me move items from my apt to a storage unit. I called them on a Sunday and was able to hire them for the next day. They were very nice, professional, and patient about figuring out the best way to arrange everything for the best fit. They also came really prepared with tons of equipment to move everything and keep stuff from getting scratched up. I would definitely hire again.

Aikens Moving arrived on time with all of their equipment and the right size truck for my garage. He and his partner were professional and courteous. My only suggestion is perhaps bringing along one extra person for apartment jobs to load and run the elevator. It would likely would have been a quicker job then but great service overall.

Hired them to move a few, but very large, pieces of furniture. They were very responsive, called about 10 minutes before they were due to let us know how far away they were, and were very nice and well equipped with blankets and clear wrap. We also had them move our stuff from an apartment with elevator access to the top floor and basement of our new house and they did a great job! Especially with our narrow basement door. I would recommend them and would use them again for another move!

Chris & Mark, the two guys who came for the job, were awesome with the moving. They were polite, soft spoken, well behaved and professional. We came on time, had the required equipment, followed instructions and were very thorough and efficient in their job. We moved from 2 floors to a 3 floor set up with a pit stop in between to pick up a couple of big items. They were careful with the furniture and were willing to accommodate our requests. I would definitely use their services again in future and would recommend them for your moving requirements as well.

This Pro team were moving Angels for me and my partner. They turned a stressful move into a great move. They arrived 10 minutes early. Had all the right equipment to complete our move. They were professional and came to us to do a job. A GOOD job at that. Prices were reasonable and just right. No Hidden "special" fees. Thumbtack had a few interesting pros that I contacted and they just did not meet our expectations (and that was just over the phone) One of Thumbtack pros continued to call me "sir"when emailing or talking with me lol. Another pro I called was having a cursing battle with a client he was actually with... he thought his phone was muted.... but it was not. Lol. If you are looking for a stress free, Professional move please select these angels. I plan on using this team for all future moves =) well job done!!

We hired Stressless Moving Service to help with our long distance move from Atlanta to New York City in 2020 April. We moved previously from Washington D.C. to Atlanta using a major company that was more expensive, took more than a week to arrive, and some items were scratched. Mike and his colleagues were extremely professional, quick, friendly, and overall very helpful before and during the move. The furniture and boxes arrived in perfect condition in less than one day. Unfortunately, we had some administrative issues with our new building’s insurance requirements and communication speed, but Mike took over and solved it very seamlessly. This move took place during the COVID-19 pandemic and Mike and his colleagues were prepared and wore protective equipment to protect themselves and our belongings. We highly recommend Stressless Moving Service, LLC for any kind of moves around the country.

the were very nice and prompt and i would use them again but i had fragile things move that maybe needed more attention. i felt they could have been more efficient but they were probably tired due to the heat and the time of day. i dont know how movers do it! i think one of the pieces was too heavy and we didn't have the proper equipment to move it without damaging it. it was just chipping the paint but the pieces have to be entirely repainted if chipped. i think booking earier in the day maybe is better or i did not have there a list team. again, very nice and easy. i just ended up with some damages. i did not ask them to re-emburse me for these but i feel know they knew about one of them :(
