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.

Bellhops was the BEST moving experience I've had in my lifetime! (I've moved 18 times and have helped my clients with at least 5 moves in the last 5 years). Everything was perfect from the original estimate to the final step after the movers left my office! I've already hired them to move my son in May!

Hunter and Caleb did an amazing job for us. They moved more than 20 items to various places in an outside the house in record time. We have already made arrangements for a second job and I'm sure there will be more to come. We can highly recommend 30-Minute Moves.

I had no knowledge of this company nor had any of our friends until hiring them for this move. This was only an apartment move from one floor to another and they treated us right with the pricing (was not charged for a truck that wasn’t going to be needed like I was going to be with two other quotes I had been given). Outstanding team, professional still with personality and extremely respectful of your items while moving them. Ive always ended up with broken and damaged items with other company’s but not with Rent a vet. Without question I would recommend these guys for big or small move. Once again the personable small business wins over the large corporation.

I contacted IMoveKC to move my family and I was very pleased with the service. We have several large pieces including a very large bed that need to be disassembled as well as reassembled at the new address. They did everything that I asked of them in a timely and efficient manner. Would definitely recommend IMoveKC and if I ever need to move again I know who to call

Overall, the 2 main guys were great. They communicated, were flexible, showed up on time. Their assistants were terrible and slow. In the end, the 2 main guys made it right, but it made for a long day and night. I understand that finding people willing to do this work is rough, and in the end, I got moved with minimal issue. I’d hire again, especially if I was hiring just the 2 movers.

Great experience. They took great care in moving furniture and it was not easy due to the heaviness of the pieces. They acted as true professionals and packed into trailer like a pro. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Absolutely would recommend Royal. They sent a 3-man crew that literally ran when loading and unloading the truck. When you’re paying by the hour and trying to keep your budget down that was sincerely appreciated. And while a young company, they have 10+ years experience and were really well trained on how to move heavy and awkward furniture through tight doorways. I hope I don’t have to move again soon but if I do I’d absolutely use Zach and Royal again.

Tim did a great job moving our newly purchased piano! We took advantage of his offer to save $50 by having my husband help with the lifting. It was great to save some $$ but probably wouldn’t do that again. So, so heavy!

I hired a 3 person crew hoping my move would go faster. They were late arriving and the slowest movers I've ever used, a very expensive mistake. It took them two hours to get the things out of my apartment and on to the landing, then another hour to get onto to the truck. It took them at least an hour to get to the house, and curiously, they pulled in from the opposite direction they should have been coming from, guess they made a few stops that I paid for. They broke a dining chair and put my bed frame back together incorrectly. I've never felt that movers were reckless with my things, until now. The owner took off the cost of the chair and offered to have the crew come back to put the bed frame together again. I asked him not to send them back because if they cared enough or knew how to do it, it would have been done correctly the first time. Go with anyone else.
