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.

Personable! Very professional! Very efficient! They where knowledgeable about moving and packing! I would use them, again. The last mover that I used (24 faith moving co) on Thumbtack was awful! Bellhops has restored my faith in Thumbtack and in moving companies.

Country side movers was hired to move a treadmill from a garage into a basement. They were aware of the kind of treadmill it was prior to the move. They accepted the job, quoted me $300 to move, dissemble and reassemble the treadmill in my basement. HOWEVER, they did not put the treadmill in the basement as agreed but instead left it on the garage, stating that the treadmill required special tools, and that it was broken( untrue). When I expressed that moving the treadmill to the garage was not what I paid for, I was told that he would move the treadmill to the basement for me for an additional $500, which was not at all what I was quoted. I feel cheated, and I did not get the service that I paid for. 😒

These guys were great! They responded very quickly when I was reaching out to them regarding an estimate prior to the move ... & then after I booked them, whenever I had questions regarding the move. They were on time on moving day, very polite, worked hard, & were eager to please. They were also very careful with all of my furniture. I will hire them again for future moves & will be recommending them to others. Moving day is always stressful, but these guys made it easy. I couldn’t have had a better moving experience. Thanks so much, Haul Pros LLC!!

Thank you so much to ShipSecure Moving! When I was looking for movers to help with heavy furniture, they responded quickly to my request. They were very friendly, and answered all my questions. The cost was reasonable and competitive. On the day of my move, they were professional, kind, and moved items for me beyond what was asked. They worked quickly, with no accidents, scrapes, or breaks. Even with overwhelming obstacles, they got creative and the job was done! I highly recommend this company to help with your moves, big or small!

I found Friends Moving and Delivery here on Thumbtack. I received a quote and a message that said my move was scheduled for yesterday and I would receive a call the day before (Saturday) to confirm. I received no call. I called the company myself and was told that oh sorry they did it wrong and I was the person who was supposed to call to confirm, so glad you called. Sunday, moving day, I get a call 30min before they were supposed to be there and am told they are at least 4moves behind, “do I have to move today”. Ashley tells me she will speak to her boss and call me back. 2 hours later I have still not heard back so I call and ask is there anyway to get moved today, do you have an ETA? I’m told again, I’ll call you back. More time passes and I rent a uhaul and hire other movers. I finally hear back from Ashley who says yes we can move you but it will be at least another hour. Sorry, hired other movers. Saga continues. New movers don’t show up. For some reason I reach out to Friends Moving this morning and receive a rude message saying that they didn’t cancel and it’s my fault. Don’t hire these people. They don’t call to confirm. They don’t let you know in a reasonable amount of time that they are cancelling and then they respond rudely when you attempt to hire them the next day bc you are in a bind now because of them and stuck. Never experienced this moving nightmare before and I have moved several times.

I needed a new treadmill base moved from my garage to my basement. Harold's employees called twice to keep me appraised of when they were going to arrive. They quickly moved my ridiculously heavy treadmill base to my basement with no problems. Polite, professional, and easy to work with.

Ty and Travis were amazing. They arrived early and got started right away. They were very polite and professional. They made sure everything made it on the truck. They took the time to disassemble and assemble a few items. I couldn't have been happier. They made my move painless. I would highly recommend Moving Kings to anyone.

If your like us moving day is extremely stressful. Lucky for us we stumbled upon moving company in the area. These guys were fast very professional and on time. My son who autistic and doesn’t like change or people felt comfortable around these guys shared a few laughs and joked with them and to us that spoke volume. They felt like part of the family but actually worked unlike your siblings. The quote we received was right on point. And it was right in our ballpark. The load was nice and neat and secure the unload went better than we could of imaged. Beyond thankful for these guys helping us move today. 10/10

Trust me when I say, Ashley and her team were fantastic. My original movers cancelled at 8:00 am the morning of the move, I got into contact with her and she was able to find a way to squeeze me in with her team at 2:30 that day! I was worried about time to get to my storage and she made a promise and did not fall short of it. Thank you again, they have a great team and did an amazing job!!

Those guys are fast , efficient , respectful , clean , professional , funny , amazing communicators ! I was amazed with the quality of their moving service at such a low cost. Don’t waste your money with big moving companies. Those guys get the job done better and at a way lower cost! Bigger companies asked us $350 vs them $155 for an hour! Don’t think twice , just hire them. I promise you, you won’t get better than this ! My wife and I appreciate your help ! Thanks again guys
