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. 

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. 

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.

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.

The movers were professional, courteous, and efficient. My family was very pleased to have them move our belongings. They wrapped and protected delicate furniture. The asked what needed to be moved and we did a walk through at the end to ensure we got all our belongings. They are hard workers, moving furniture & boxes with speed and effiency. I recommend Joyful Movers to everyone.

Just moved into my new place today. The movers came right on time and packed everything up in a timely manner and unloaded in my new apartment which was on the second floor. They even set up my new place just how I wanted it. I live by myself in North Carolina so having the movers be reliable was really important. Thank you for helping me move.

We had 3 very professional men move everything out of our home into a storage unit. The guys were respectful of our belongings and to us. Very pleased with the service and will hire them again to move us into a house.

I hired Trell for a move this weekend. They showed on time (actually a little early which was AWESOME ) and they disassembled and reassembled my bedroom and living room furniture. They moved my large appliances like pro's and the entire time they were professional and friendly. They even offered and assisted with things outside of their job functions. I will use Trell for every job moving forward. I highly recommend them above anyone I have ever used in the past. You won't be disappointed - I promise!!

I had contacted Trell's over 4 weeks before the move and made for them to be at my residence around 9 am. When they were not there by 9:15 I called them. At that time I was informed that they were running behind in their move schedule because of weather and that they would not be able to get to my address until either late that afternoon or the following morning. This was just NOT acceptable to me considering that we had confirmed a date and time weeks before. Trell's did make arrangements to have a truck and crew at my residence and they showed up at 10:30 am. Once there, the worked hard and got me moved over to my new address on time. One little incident did happen. While bringing in a love seat they hit the door jam and took a piece of wood out of the door jam which I will now have to repair. Nothing got broken during the move. This was my second time using Trell's and I am also planning on using them again in a couple of weeks to help unload a truck after I move a friend coming from Texas.

I needed to move a few pieces of furniture to another home an hour away. Didn’t want to pay “whole house move” prices. Trell’s team did a great job. They were prompt, polite, funny, personable, eager to work, and efficient. The price was quite fair. In setting it up, I found Trell to be responsive and flexible and easy to schedule with. Low drama, and I didn’t have to fill out all the inventory forms you do with big moves. One of the pieces was very large, difficult, and fragile and had to come down a bending stair case. They got it down in one piece with only a minor mar on the wall. I would use them again for sure.

They did a very good job, but raised the price by $100 because one of the houses had stairs to navigate (which they were informed of ahead of time). $280 to $380 is a big jump for having to move one bedroom down a set of stairs too.

These young men are great, they exceeded our expectations. They can move anything, I put them to the test. We were their third job of the day and they still had plenty of energy. I would highly recommend them to anyone and will be using them again in the future.

High Performance Movers were set to arrive at my home at 10am on the morning of 05/03/18 but there was some construction going on in my area that caused some delay in the arrival time. Matt was really good about calling and keeping me informed on when they would arrive. When they arrived Matt came up to see what the situation was (how much stuff I actually had) and then they got right to work. I lived in a apartment building that had 3 flights of stairs and I never heard these guys complain one time about the many, many, many trips that they had to make with my belongings. I had about 25 or 30 (35-45 gallon) plastic totes (packed to the rim, making them super HEAVY), washer and dryer, living room set, dining room set and a pretty heavy duty queen sized bedroom set that these guys took down BY HAND!!!! They worked hard and were extremely friendly while doing it (even to my 2 little dogs that gave both of them a very hard time). I moved into a 3 bedroom home and they put everything where I asked. They put my bedroom completely back together, placed all pieces where I wanted them and hooked up my washer and dryer. They were very informative and did everything that I asked of them. If I ever move again I would definitely call High Performance Movers. EXCELLENT SERVICE!!!!!
