Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

Reviews for Columbia Heights furniture movers
Thumbtack Customer
While the movers were on-time, the movers did not move fast at all, and used up all their time just moving furniture. They were not solution-oriented when trying to maneuver furniture. Then they had to leave for another job, leaving me and my father to actually pack the furniture. I would not recommend them if you want a job done quickly and efficiently.

I needed a large piece of furniture moved up a flight of steps. The staircase had a slight turn. The furniture was tall and so that added challenges to not hitting the ceiling as it was being moved up. The two young men who moved my piece were respectful, prompt (exactly on time) and protected my furniture with blanket and shrink wrap. I was so pleased with the work they did and their professionalism.

Even though our request to move furniture was a small job, Al and Ed were great in moving a loveseat from the lower level of our home to the upper level.

Tanner and his crew were awesome! They were extremely careful with my furniture. Even ran out to their truck to get a tape measure to double check that my dresser would fit through a narrow doorway.This was the first time I wasn't nervously biting my nails while watching movers move my large bedroom furniture. All three movers were friendly- definitely would hire them again! I've been recommending them to my family and friends!

Chester was amazing and very professional. He was able to come out right away and move the furniture to the upstairs. He arrived with blankets to protect the doorways, and measured everything to make sure it would fit before moving. We will be using him again.

I had a very heavy piece of furniture to move upstairs. Jay was rapidly and professionally responsive to all of my messages to him. His crew came over quickly, did an excellent job moving a difficult piece and even helped me out with some assembly. I can highly recommend Ceenergy.

Tyler quickly responded to my last minute request and he and his crew were able to accommodate my schedule. On the day of the move, they arrived on time and took great care of our belongings, including moving heavy furniture and a large aquarium. Everything was well priced and we would definitely hire them again!

I was SUPER impressed with TK Movers! They were flexible with their schedule to be extremely accommodating, even at last minute! They were friendly and easy to work with. They were extremely careful with all my furniture, from taking everything apart to setting it back up again. (They actually did a better job than when the actual furniture store delivered the furniture to start with!) I would hire them again without hesitation, and so would my whole family! Don't look around for anyone else, you can't get better than these guys!

Tyler and Cody just finished our move, where they made quick work of moving a garage FULL of furniture and household items into our new home. They were very personable, hard working, careful, and thorough. We are so grateful for their help and flexibility when our closed date changed unexpectedly. I can't recommend them enough!

We hired First Priority Movers to help us move furniture around our house as we were changing things after remodeling. The guys were so friendly, professional and efficient. They got so much done in 2 hours - what would have taken my husband and me 10x longer! They were a pleasure to work with.

Could not have been happier with Bob and his crew. He was quick to respond to my request and communicative throughout the process. Showed up on time and did a heckuva job moving a beast of a project. We were extremely happy and will definitely use them again should we need to move any furniture. I would highly recommend Bob and his crew.

Dreezy’s responded immediately, with a very fair bid and finished moving my furniture around in my house literally in just a few minutes. They were both friendly and thoughtful and listened to what I needed. I would definitely be happy to call them again anytime.

We are prepping for the sale of our house. We need two folks to help us move furniture around at the direction of a stager. On Call Services fit the bill. My husband was very impressed with their services. What could have been stressful, wasn’t. Thank you so much!

The two guys transporting my furniture and things were incredibly courteous, hard-working and pleasant to work with. I think they should get a raise! They were two-and-a-half hours late but called well before our appointment to let me know. The company itself called too and asked if I was ok with this. I was. Their prices are below two of the most well-known moving companies, therefore I didn't feel too uptight about the time it took to get the moving done. I highly recommend this company. And Andre and the other young gentleman were just wonderful to deal with :-) Thank You!!!

AJ and his coworker who’s name I forgot forgive me did an amazing job moving heavy furniture for me from one townhome to the next. Very quick response time, arrived exactly on time, didn’t stop working until it was done, took excellent care of my belongings and worked non stop for 2.5 hours. I highly recommend them this was my first time using thumbtack. These guys saved me time and money. Shop quotes if you need to and you’ll realize these guys are top notch price, quality and service.
