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. 

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. 

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.

How much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Had a great experience with Friends Moving this weekend! Ashley was so helpful, clear, and communicative when booking and pricing. Everything went as she said it would. I really appreciated the confirmation call the day before, and the calls from the crew that morning with updated ETA. The movers were so nice, organized, skilled, and really went above and beyond. I will definitely use them again for my next moving job (although I hope to not be moving for awhile!) and would recommend them to any family/friends in the area. They made our moving day easy and pleasant.

These guys were incredible! We had to book an unexpected last minute move and they were very responsive and willing to work with us. They gave us an hour heads up that they would be thirty minutes late, which was very appreciated and they moved us out quickly! Nothing was broken and they handled everything with care. Overall I had a fantastic experience with this business and would recommend to anyone needing to move^^

These guys were great! They moved my daughters from Kansas to Chicago! They were always kind and very professional. We had a few things to pick up in the Chicago area and they were very accommodating. I have dealt with many movers that tell you one thing and then do another—these guys are the real deal! Nothing was nicked and they were very respectful of our home. I couldn’t recommend that you use them for your move enough!

Mike, Hayden, and Cooper were great to work with. From the start, Mike was responsive and kind. They showed up on time and were very professional. As they handled our things, they were time-efficient and handled everything with care. They were great about checking-in and making sure they were grabbing the correct things and putting them where we wanted. They even offered to move things for us once they brought everything into the new place, to make sure everything was placed properly. Their price also is unbeatable. They needed to stop to get gas on the way to the second place, they informed me they would stop, and made sure to make a note on the invoice that the clock stopped while they did. While I hope it will be a while until we have to move again, I will definitely use Point-blank Moving in the future. Our first time with a moving company was great, and it's all thanks to the Point-Blank team.

Very professional and efficient. Tony and his crew showed up early and were so fast and friendly. They had all the pads/dolly’s and equipment to get the job done the right way. They handled our heavy personal items with so much care and I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for moving services in the KC Metro area.

Ezra’s team was fantastic, took great care in loading our truck carefully to ensure all items were protected. He even helped us load our car with luggage and other fragile items we wanted to keep close to us in our move. I highly recommend EZBreezy to anyone needing top quality service!

These guys were Great! Easy to work with and schedule. Prior to arriving received call and they arrived on time. They listened to what I wanted and went right to work. They expertly loaded the truck to safely move all furniture. At the new house they were attentive to where I wanted each item and were happy to rearrange furniture in rooms to my liking. And they did all this with 3 children running around! Would highly recommend.

They were to arrive at 9 but arrived at 9:30. I had sent them a list of things needing moved for the estimate. Only 2 guys showed up but then they called for another guy to come help. They were very careful w my belongings although one desk has a broken leg but none of my glass things were broken. They were very nice and worked hard but didn’t finish until 11:30 that night.

Everything about working with this company was easy. With all of the stress of home buying, I was so glad to be able to quickly get details confirmed and when they got there they were very professional. Especially with COVID precautions, I felt very comfortable having the three person crew working in my home. Most importantly, everything went where it needed to go and they were very careful with all of my things. I’ll be coming right back here next time I move. Five stars, thanks y’all!
