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.

Tony and his crew, Qwan and Michael, did a great job with my move. Tony was in frequent contact with me and the crew, always assuring things went as smoothly as possible. The crew was young, but very professional and hard working. They all three went above and beyond to help me through this move because I had a lot of anxiety over it. I would highly recommend HaulPros for all your moving needs.

We were taken care of from the very beginning. Cole was very professional and courteous during the quote process. Our movers arrived promptly in the timeframe given and were very polite and respectful. They made quick work of our belongings, while.taking great care to protect them and our house. Derek and Ramone, sorry if I spelled their names wrong, were professional and friendly. We would recommend Movings Pros for all your moving needs.

Moving Pros were effiecent, professional and courteous in their services. I was especially appreciative that they had the foresight to lay down furniture pad blankets on the floor while they moved stuff because it was raining and doing this mitigated potential mud being tracked in. I would hire and recommend them again.

I hired 2 Dudes to pick a piece of furniture I'd purchased and bring it to my home 2.5-3.0 hours away. The day of the move, it had snowed in the KC metro area. 2 Dudes secured extra equipment, to ensure they could successfully move the furniture requested. They were still committed to doing the job and getting it to me in its original condition. I will hire them again.

I specified in my request I had a very heavy treadmill that was going upstairs to the 2nd floor. I also specifically asked him to text me when he was 10 min away and I’d meet him at my friend’s home, where treadmill was being picked up. He didn’t text me, showed up and picked up treadmill then came to my home, alone. If my son hadn’t been home, he could not have moved it. I asked him where his help was and he said I didn’t ask for two movers! How did he think he could move a big, heavy treadmill up to a second floor alone? Why should I have to ask for two movers? That’s why I specifically said it was very heavy and going to 2nd floor. It was $100 for an hour, reasonable price and he was on time. Now I have to pay for my son to go to the chiropractor. That’s why I hired someone, so my son didn’t have to move it. If you use Jerry, be sure you ask if there’s one or two people doing the job and if you think it’s a two person job, say so upfront. I thought I did, by saying it was Barry he’s y and had to go to 2nd floor!

These guys really live up to their name. They were easy to work with, easy to communicate with and took most of the stress out of moving. I highly recommend them and we will be using them again in the next couple months.

The couple of guys, Brady and Willie, who helped me move were great. They worked their butts off. They were polite and everything was taken care of with care. I was sure to tip them a little extra at the end for the good work.

Haul Pros LLC did an awesome job with my move. They showed up a few min early and finished the job in just a little over 2 1/2 hours when we had planned for 3. This move was from a 2nd floor apt w/elevator to another 2nd floor apt with stairs. The staff were very professional and wrapped some of my items that I skipped wrapping myself. I also received a call from the owner, Tony, as soon as the job was finished to make sure everything went well. I highly recommend them as they did a great job!!

Communication was excellent - from my initial inquiry as to pricing and availability to the actual moving day. The crew called and let me know when they were on the way. Very polite, respectful, and efficient. We had a late start due to rain, but that didn't slow them down. I definitely feel we received a good value. Would highly recommend.
