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.

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.

How do you move large pieces of furniture?

Moving large furniture can be done with help from the best movers in your area and careful planning. First, get an idea of how much the furniture weighs and how much each mover can manage. The next step is figuring out the path the furniture will take as it exits its point of origin and makes its way to its new home. Professional movers then use dollies, furniture protectors and personal safety gear for a safe, smooth move. 

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free estimates.

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 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 will movers not move?

Movers typically won’t move things if relocating them could be hazardous to them, others or the item itself. Many movers will choose not to move items that may contain explosive material that could be jostled during the move. Illegal items or containers that may have illegal items stored or hidden inside would also get a no from movers.

What movers won’t move may also depend on the item’s condition. If it will likely break during the move, movers may avoid moving it.

Before hiring a professional, ask movers near you if there are any items they will not move. 

How do I sell my stuff when I move?

To sell your stuff when you move, it’s best to try using several online outlets. If you're familiar with only a few, you can discover others by doing a quick search.

You can also sell your stuff by putting out an ad in a local newspaper or by making simple signs advertising your sale. One of the easiest ways to sell your stuff is to pick a day on a weekend and have a garage sale.

Can you hire movers for an hour?

Yes, you can hire movers for an hour. But when most people hire movers, they have a job that takes two or more hours. However, if you’re able to pack and prepare an item properly, there are movers who may be willing to move the item in an hour. Sometimes these are flat-rate movers, who charge you one fee so you don’t have to worry about the cost going up — even if the move extends slightly past an hour.

Hired C. Mosley for loading our furniture in the truck. His team arrived on time and did an excellent job moving our furniture. They took extra steps to ensure there wasn't going to be any damage to the furniture.

Brian and his helper were great. I had them moving furniture from a storage unit, and then making a stop to drop off a piece of furniture and then picking up one piece and then to the final destination. I could not have asked for a better experience in moving.

Cartan was fantastic!! I had a few pieces of furniture I needed moved to my basement and a sofa hauled away. He was very punctual and professional and they were very careful with the belongings and moving them down the basement stairs. They even helped rearrange some of the furniture that was already down there to ensure it looked perfect. I would definitely use Cartan again and highly recommend him!

Brian is hands down the best. I hired him when I first moved into a downtown loft and hired him again to move into my new home. He got back to me immediately, moved and set up my furniture with ease, and is always very friendly. I would recommend him to anyone 10/10

After moving our furniture from the previous night, we were too tired and in pain to move it in today. Fortunately, we had this connection, and received very professional service. Thank you for coming through at the last minute and being so kind. And you put our bed together as well! I will keep you in mind for future moves and will recommend to anyone and everyone.
