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.

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.

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. 

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.

How do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Steven and his team are absolutely incredible! Steven was responsive from the very beginning. He was punctual on the day of the move. He and his team handled all of our items with care and were very personable yet professional. I couldn’t have asked for better movers to help us transition into our first home. Thank you Yours Truly, Movers. I will definitely be recommending you to absolutely everyone I know!

This is the best deal in town, not only are they quick, but also lots of fun with great personality. I moved my studio into a 5x10 storage and it was a tight fit, but nothing is impossible for this crew. I will always go to them for all my moving needs. Best find ever!

The guys who did our move were amazing. They moved so quick and with such grace that I was never worried about my furniture. Additionally, they were willing to do a pick up on Long Island with and brought the stuff all the way back to Flatbush Brooklyn. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends or colleagues.

I would give Fair Price Movers more stars if possible! From the moment I contacted them, Mr. Wright (David) gave me a straight up TRUE flat rate price. I kept in contact with him as I hadn't yet finalized my move, but even working with a tentative (weekend) date, he obliged. I moved from a 2bd to a 2bd but there was more stuff than your average 2bd. He sent out 5 guys and they had us loaded, moved & unloaded in 4 hours; this included that I was on the 2nd floor of a home with 14 to go up & down...this included a couch that weighed almost 200 lbs...this included disassembling & reassembling a kitchen table & a queen bed with footboard, headboard, side rails & wood slats...this included stopping first at my new place to unload & walking up & down about 12 steps, then unloading at a storage unit where the unit is on the 2nd floor! They were on time with an ETA of 10-10:30am & they arrived about 10:15 or so. The truck sent was more than big enough, the foreman, Eric was beyond pleasant & really knew how to instruct & giude the other guys. The biggest thing was getting that couch out my house in less than 5 minutes (moving in it took others almost an hour & taking the door off the hinges) & easily inside my new place (please know that that couch was my biggest concern!)! So, shout-outs & many thanks & praise to Mr. Wright, Eric, Ashton, Pablo and I forget the other 2 guys' names. You really came through and made moving so easy & carefree, I won't have any anxieties whenever I move again and I will be contacting this company then too! I know my comment is beyond long, but I had to be thorough so others truly know what to expect; I will recommend them if I know anyone moving & highly recommend them to all reading this. And oh, the price I was quoted is EXACTLY what I paid, no gimmicks, no extra fees, no BS. Thanks again fellas.
