Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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. 

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

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.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

I was doing some spring cleaning and moving things to a storage and to a donation store. Communication was wonderful, the two workers were professional and moved my items quickly. I would recommend Midas Moving for your small or large move.

Exceptional movers!! This was our first time hiring movers and must we say we picked the right moving company to go with. BIG DEAL Movers did a great job moving my items in and out of storage. They were patient, quick, professional and knowledgeable on how to get the job done right with no damages on their furniture. They wrapped our furniture so wouldn't break or get scratched on truck or during move. The movers came within the expected time frame. They never once stopped to take a break. I must say if we ever move again we will be using them again. Price was really reasonable. Thank you BIG DEAL Movers I definitely recommend them!

We had a piano moved on 2/22. At the last minute, we also asked to add a dining room set to the move. Thomas accommodated our request for a great price. His team was prompt, courteous, and professional. They took very good care of our furnishings to make sure everything was well protected. The move went great, and we will certainly recommend Tate the Great to anyone looking for a mover.

These guys were great. We hired three movers and they quoted us a fair rate. We initially thought the entire move would take about 4 hrs but it ended up taking 6 hours and took two trips. The entire interaction with these guys was not only professional but warm. They moved our items with care and treated our home with the same attention. I could go on but I’ll stop there.

Team was punctual. They even called me to inform that they are stuck in traffic and will be a bit delayed. True professionalism. I needed to move/rearrange heavy furniture in my home and they made it easy for me. Completed the job in time and even moved some furniture back to its original location which was moved to make way to move the other heavy furniture. I would recommend this company for this work and will call them back next time when I have the need.

Compass Liberty Express, LLC is an excellent piano moving company. The workers are professional and polite. They moved my baby grand piano perfectly and set it up in my family room in short order. They also arrived even early at the storage unit where the piano was kept. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to have a piano moved.

RLMJ was great to work with. They arrived early and was ready to get moving soon as they arrived. They were very careful with all my items and made sure everything was wrapped and secure before moving anything in or out. I would highly recommend RLMJ Movers! Mayrah on the customer service rep side was GREAT! She made the process very simple from the beginning and easy to understand what all to expect from pricing, time and more. Will definitely use RLMJ again in the future with any moving needs.

Dubb Delivery & Moving never showed up for the appointment to move me. They gave me a 11:00 am pick time on 1/22/22. Stated that they had another customer ahead of me, that customer time went into my time slot. Willing to wait for 3 hours until 2:00 pm for them to come and move me. Still couldn’t make it to move me. Stated they would move me in the morning, I will be the first customer at 9:00 am. He will not put anyone in front of me. I called and text his phone around 8:25 am to confirm appointment. He read my text at 9:04 am. I called him at 9:17 am it went start to voicemail. He never once contacted me to say anything. Left me waiting with all my furniture, thinking I was going to be moved today. If you want a professional moving company to use, this is not it. Don’t waste your time.
