Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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 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 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.

These are the worst movers ever!!! They confirmed two times with me via email, and on the 1st, they bailed on me! I happen to be a brittle type 1 diabetic,I got a uhaul, my son, a friend & I moved us in this horrible heat! I finally got a hold of the guys dad who told me that "my son doesn't do that moving anymore". What a loser!

I would highly recommend TK Movers. They showed up on time, are very polite, and are extremely careful when it comes to moving your furniture. They come in and get right to work. Within minutes of them being at your home it is clear to see they know exactly what they are doing. I would use them again. They are expensive but I will say you get what you pay for.

Two terrific guys who can get the job done. Moved two heavy recliners, and an extremely large heavy couch downstairs, managing to squeeze it through an almost impossibly small area. Very courteous, on time, definitely recommend.

Tanner, Alex, and Blaze were absolutely incredible! They took all the moving stress out of buying my first home! They arrived on time, and took time to wrap things, and still had everything loaded into the truck from a third floor walk up in an hour! They unloaded and set up my furniture in the new house just as quickly. I can't believe how fast this move went! Even with all the stairs! Not to mention, they were all so personable, courteous, and professional! I'm so very grateful to this team for their awesome service, affordable rates, and truly amazing work! Thanks so much guys!

These guys are amazing! They moved my extremely heavy piano up a flight of stairs for me and made it seem so easy! And only at my house for all of five minutes, they were so quick! I was blown away! And very reasonably priced. I got quotes from other companies that were more than double what Holleman charged me. Before finding Holleman, I was about ready to give up on hiring a professional that would break the bank and figure out a way to move the piano myself. Holleman saved me! I can’t recommend them enough. Thank you guys so much!

Morgan and Solomon were on time, polite, and courteous! They completed my move in exactly the amount of time they estimated. They were very hard working but careful and took great care of my belongings, even more than I would have. Highly recommend these guys and they are so very reasonably priced. 10 stars ⭐️

This company broke our $4,000 couch and dropped several of our boxes that they had to put stuff back into the boxes in the street. They offered no contract and no floaters permit. They said there would be 2 movers, then brought 4 and took a very long time to move things as if trying to get paid more. The couch only reclines if sat on and cracks when it does. The wood inside is bent in both recliners and materials are ripped. We are still paying this couch off. They acted very nervous after I told them the couch cracked when they put it down and tried to say all couches do that. They were very unprofessional, and at times brought in single items that fell out of boxes we packed and just handed them to me. Very unhappy and angry.
