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.

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.

Great Nation Moving was a life saver! I called on a Friday and needed to move on Saturday or Sunday. They arrived at 8am Saturday moving and worked hard and fast. I will definitely recommend this company to my friends and family when they need to move.

Hands down the best moving company in the country. We got three young strong movers who came right on time and did not stop for a minute. They were nice, polite and super experienced. We have done some moves earlier and this was definitely the best experience. If you are looking for the movers do not hesitate as Baku Moving is the best company with reasonable price. Hire them out for having a great moving experience.

Perfect for Small Moves did a great job helping to move some furniture bought at an estate sale to my home. Bill was communicative, professional, and his moving services were reasonably priced. He even offered to move an extra piece of furniture for me! I would whole heartedly recommend Perfect for Small Moves and would definitely use them again!

This was the best move that I've ever had. The movers were professional, friendly and responsive to a few last minute changes. I've recommended Zebna to all my friends and co-workers for their future moves.

AT Movers completed 2 small moves for me and both were handled in an efficient and professional manner. One of the moves was scheduled at the last minute with AT because another vendor proved unreliable. I recommend them without reservation.

Troyka was very responsive from the beginning and communicated well about the process. They are such fast movers! I also had a couple of couches that were difficult to move and I thought I would have to leave them behind, but with the mover's determination and skill, I was happy to have both couches moved to the new place. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone who needs to move. They are no nonsense and very professional. They come, assess what needs to be done, move the items, and are on time with travel. 10/10!

The most unprofessional and irresponsible moving company I ever booked on thumbtack. This moving “company” did a no-call no-show on my move-in day. I confirmed the day before, and they said they would be here. I should have known by the grammar used in their text that something dumb would happen…I called them at the time of move out and they said they were still on the first job, and asked if they could reschedule me 4 days later. Total disregard for concrete move out/in dates. Don’t do business with them, they will leave you to scramble around looking for a moving company with same day service.

I was skeptical about hiring movers, as I have never done it before. That being said, I will DEFINITELY use this moving company again. The guys were early, and hustled HARD to ensure everything was moved in a timely order and that everything was transported safely.

I hired JFP Express movers for my move today, and their movers Malcolm and Quentin we're very professional and fast. They had me out of my old place in 45 minutes and drove me and my things to my current place. I definitely would recommend hiring JFP for all of your moving needs, they'll load and unload your stuff with the utmost care.

The gentlemen who helped us move were very careful with our belongings. I trusted them to ask me before moving things they were unsure about or thought needed additional protections (box, padding). The gentlemen moved efficiently, and actually made an attempt at not dragging the move out so that I would have to pay more, which I appreciated. They moved a family of 3 with a 2 bed/2bath apartment into our home in 4 hours. Overall, I was very pleased, and I would use the service again, as well as recommend Name Your Price to anyone looking to keep the moving price low with high quality service.

Quick Reaction was totally awesome. Arrival time was on point and the movers were outstanding they went straight to work no goofing around, no breaks excellent all around response to what movers should be. I originally had another company scheduled and they fell through with the time, I'm so thankful for that because it was not meant for them to move me. My next move will be with Quick Reaction and any other transportation needs.

Gerald kept in communication with me throughout the scheduling process and moving day. These guys were incredibly quick, responsive to my particular requests regarding moving the furniture and very friendly. I could not have asked for a better moving experience. I will definitely use them in the future.
