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.

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’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. 

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 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.

What a GREAT experience moving with Joyful Movers was! I contacted Thumbtack and was given the names of 3 movers, their information, quotes, etc. Through this information, I was able to totally set up my move with Joyful Movers. The 2 movers were extremely professional, polite and helpful with whatever was needed. They never once complained, even though my move was in the late afternoon and it was on the hottest day of the year so far....i.e. 90+ degrees! I would absolutely recommend Joyful Movers.

Of the 3 movers contacted Manco was the only one that responded promptly to my inquiry and completed not only a residential move but also a business move within a reasonable amount of time. Cost of services easily explained and the movers were prompt on arrival, considerate of belongings and energized for the task at hand.Highly recommended for any move big and small.

I can not say enough good things about American Moving. We called them last minute and they had moving help to us the same day. We had several extremely heavy pieces of furniture that needed moved and the movers were professional, friendly, hard working and very careful not to damage the furniture or walls In the house. Pricing was very competitive and I will be recommending American Moving Co. to anyone that needs professional moving help.

I recently had American Moving & Hauling move me from one apartment building in a complex to another. I had a time frame I thought it should take in mind, but I did not mention it in the movers. Montini and Antonio were focused on what I wanted to happen during the move and was respectful during the process and best of all they met the time frame I had in mind. I am moving one more time in a few months and would seriously consider this company to provide services for me again.

The move took longer and much more expansive than estimate. The movers were polite and respectful of my furnitures. My new home has hardwood floors and they knew to use felt cloth on the floors when moving big items. They also helped to reconnect my washer and dryer. They worked non-stop and even missed lunch.

This was my first time hiring movers so of course I was nervous about what to expect. In the days leading up to the move I called and texted often and each time Ronnie was available to answer my questions and put me at ease. On the day of the move him and his team showed up and worked hard to accommodate us. They were friendly and professional The move went smoothly and everything was loaded and unloaded in tact. I would definitely use Rapid Robot again and will refer my friends to them.

John and his team were gracious and accommodating from the start. He was friendly and went out of his way to work with our need and our schedule - even coming later into the evening after a long day. They took great care with moving our piece of furniture and communicated well with one another to ensure the move went smoothly and carefully. We would definitely call upon Faith and Glory Movers again!

Used American Moving today to move from our two story home to a single story. Orlando and his crew arrived promptly at 8, did a walk through of the house and got right to work. Extremely professional, hard working and polite. We bought lunch for everyone and had to make them stop for a break. When they finished up the move they shook our hands and THANKED US for letting them work with us. It is US who thank you Orlando and crew for all your hard work !!! I highly recommend anyone consider using American Moving. You won't be disappointed.

Best service for moving stuff ever!!! I'd pay 3x the amount. They responded straight away very straight forward, professionally, and kindly. When the time came to move things, they were very early and moved everything super quickly. Super super nice folks, they even let me ride in their truck to the storage unit and dropped me off back at the university. Recommend 10000x over. Amazing experience, amazing response time, amazing people :)

*****I do understand things happened.... Jeremy confirmed he would arrive between 8:00-8:30, for my move that had been booked for over 2 weeks. I recieved a text at 7:32 "I know this is short notice, but my truck is broken down. Don't know how long it will take to have it serviced and running. If possible is there another day I can move you" So I asked if I rent a Uhaul, can you still move me... 7:51 "I'm still in VA on the side of the road" Needless to say after the making several last minute phone calls, NO "professional" movers available & renting a Uhaul...a few friends pulled through and got the move done! Again, I do understand things happen, however this was my experience.
