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.

Tom & his guys provided the best moving experience I have ever had. They were all extremely friendly, respectful of my furniture and belongings, moved very quickly and communicated with me and each other excellently. They moved me & my family from a 3 bedroom, 3 floor townhouse to a 3 bedroom, 3 floor single family home with ~20 mins of driving in two hours. Very efficient. Will highly recommend!

So we were in our planning phase and the communication was great. When I did explain that it’ll be two storage units one smaller than the other the person responding to me said no problem we will add a 3rd person to move you it’ll be about the same price. When I got the new invoice the price jumped when I said I’ll just take the two movers he said that option isn’t available and they’ll have to cancel. No reason as to why but this is a big inconvenience just a week away from moving.

Thank you for your helping with the move. It was a hassle free experience. They communicated well, provided excellent service and were very friendly. All the materials were delivered in good shape. They disassembled and put the furniture back wherever necessary. Most importantly, offered a fair price. I'll will strongly recommend them to any one looking for movers.

There was a miscommunication on my end regarding the time frame in which I thought was the time they would be there. When I called, very worried as I was running out of time. They responded immediately, and sent another person to help and get me out in time. They were extremely nice and understanding of my circumstances and also gave me a 5% discount for anyone I recommend them to or if I move again. The quote they gave me was within the range. The only thing difference was the amount they charge per hour. It says 89$/ hour but I believe i paid 119$. So I would look into that. But otherwise, I would recommend them to anyone moving. Nothing was broken in the moving process and they had to go up flights of stairs. Extremely hard working men.

Rod was great. Easy to get in touch with, flexible on schedule, fair prices and great work. I moved to a house with a very sloped garage and Rod disassembled, transported, set up and leveled my table perfectly. I didn't have to do anything! Thanks Rod.

Terrible experience!

WR moving helped with my 1bedroom apartment move into a POD. Pros: 1. They were very courteous and pleasant to work with 2. They very responsive to direction and re-arrangement requests to make maximum use of space (I don’t think they had loaded a POD before). 3. They worked hard and consistently - no dawdling or trying to run out the clock 4. They didn’t try to nickel and dime me or charge extra for helping to remove the base stand from my TV or my floor to ceiling shelves from each other and the wall 5. We had negotiated a flat fee for up to three hours and they left it to my discretion to top off since the job took three and a half Cons: will need close supervision 1. I wish they had been a bit more careful with my stuff (especially the assistant) - While I was upstairs with one, the other stacked my shelves on top of each other downstairs on its narrowest side, such that the wind pushed over and threw one on top of the stack down, breaking it - I found a dent in my expensive stainless steel bin the next morning from when they didn’t move it out of the way when carrying my couch - They tried to brute force my 55in flat screen Sony TV into its box when it wasn’t properly aligned with the cutouts in the foam seats inside - I had to tell them to take the TV out and turn it around - and they were squeezing the TV’s screen during the process to the point that I’m worried about if it will be damaged when I open it up and turn it on - They didn’t wrap my couch or the arm chair properly, even though I provided wrap. The chair literally looked like it had a belt on it not a wrap 2. For some reason, they didn’t show up with any doilies or moving carts, even though they had my list of items before hand, including 40 boxes. I don’t know what we would have done if my building hadn’t had a couple of hotel carts we could use. All said, I would recommend them because they did listen and adjust when I stepped in and gave directions. But supervise closely.
