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.

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 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.

As stressful as moving into a new state is, the movers and the communication I received from the employees were truly great and eased a lot of my stress. They were quick, clean and efficient in moving my items and no damage was caused overall. Overall I had a great experience with Pick Up Movers and would definitely suggest them to friends and family for their quality and fast service.

WNC Mountain Movers did a wonderful job, were very professional, efficient, hard workers. They were careful with my belongings and made sure to use caution when moving heavy objects. Will definitely hire again for my next move!

I always thought moving companies are no good. Then I hired Pick Up Movers which completely changed my mind. I got a hint of their efficiency when I called them first. Their customer service was very helpful and prompt. Their quote was unbeatable. The best part of their service was the movers. They were so punctual and efficient. The movers were so fast at the packing and loading process. The delivery was made on time and everything was in perfect condition. All my prejudices about moving companies are gone.

Quick Movers were professional with the move and got the job done. The two movers wrapped our furniture and brought everything needed. They were two hours late (there was an accident), so schedule early just in case! Heads up: they charge an undisclosed 4% credit card fee, so pay with cash if you can.

Not only the movers from Pick Up Movers were efficient and professional, they were also extremely friendly. I might have just found the perfect moving company who really shows a lot of care for my valuables. They handled my move very smoothly. The movers were so strong; they carried my heavy mattress with such ease. I really can’t praise these guys enough. Lastly, a special mention is needed for their pricing. They quoted quite low to begin with. The final bill was even lower than that. All the packing materials were provided for free. I just couldn’t believe my eyes.

Answered my request for movers very quickly (and also the only one who called me from this app, although one did call the day after our move.). Very pleasant people. However, they were 1-1/2 hours late getting here. The older mover said that he and the owner can move a whole house in about 3-4 hours. Unfortunately, the owner didn’t come. Instead, a younger guy with little experience came with. Move took over 4 hours for a 2 bedroom apartment (on 3rd floor) to a first floor apartment in the same complex. So, move cost me more than I was expecting, especially since all our boxes had already been moved. Also, while they did wrap some of the furniture in plastic stretch wrap, they did not pad anything. They did not even wrap our 60+ inch TV at all. Fortunately, I had purchased a hand truck (dolly) and ratchet straps because they didn’t have any to use to move the washer and dryer. Again though, they were very nice people.

Mike and Daniel did an amazing job! We moved across town in Asheville and they made the process super easy and fun. They work hard and don't waste time but are still incredibly personable and funny. It felt like having some buddies help us move. They moved a very heavy (450 lb) wood burning smoker that I was very concerned about moving. They were very careful and made it look easy. Their rates beat every competitor we talked to and Mike was responsive from the moment I made contact. Communication was effortless and I would recommend them to anyone. I hope we don't have to move again any time soon, but if we do, I know who I will call.

There is no shortage of moving companies. But what separates Pick Up Movers from the pack is their sincerity and reliability factor. They really showed a lot of care while moving my belongings. They showed up on time and packed up everything very fast. I only instructed them a little and they listened to every word of mine. The van pulled up at my new house right on schedule and all my valuables were safe. That is just superb! I will definitely hire them again.

These guys performed brilliantly during my last move. We hired them after reading so many amazing reviews from other people. They seemed friendly and reliable when we called them. The real proof came during the move. The movers were all very well trained and they wasted absolutely no time. Their packing skills were amazing and they carried everything with ease. They were literally in and out of our house. The delivery was made on the scheduled date. They managed to deliver all our items in perfect condition.

If he would’ve showed up with a box truck like we discussed it would’ve been fine. However, they brought a 6’ x 12’ trailer instead and i had to make multiple trips is my car ( I’m still moving stuff!) to move the 2 dozen boxes, art and chairs left behind! Terrible

Matt and his partner were great movers. This was our first time hiring moving help and we've moved a lot. After they left, we decided that it was the best decision ever. We hired Matt to unload our POD at our new place. They showed up on time, ready to get started right away. He and Robert had great communication with each other and with us and took care of our belongings. They also had the right equipment and supplies which made everything go faster. Thanks guys. Highly recommend.
