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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Contact single-item movers near you to find out what services they offer, and get free 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.

Had to move heavy furniture within the office in advance of a deep cleaning. Dyno was prompt and extremely helpful both moving furniture off the floors pre-cleaning and putting everything back in place post-cleaning

Awesome communication leading to the move day and showed up right on time. Moved everything out quickly and made sure to protect and wrap my furniture. Unloading was also quick. There was an issue getting my box spring down stairs, but they didn’t want to damage walls/furniture given the narrow stairwell. Would recommend to anyone needing a quick move without the stress!

Booked them the day before to help move furniture from my third-floor walk-up into my pickup truck. They did an excellent job moving an extremely heavy/ awkward piece of furniture and stayed late to ensure it was properly tied down into the truck. It's hard to find moving labor in NYC who doesn't have hour minimums - so they are a great option (job took ~1.5 hours)

Seka Moving crew ( Alexey, Sasha and Azamat ) did a fantastic job with my move. I was relocating on a short notice. I needed help packing my furniture and moving from my 4th floor apartment. I called them and was able to schedule for the next Wednesday. The team was organized, professional and on-time. They wrapped my furniture superbly. Amazing job!!! Without a second thought I would recommend them.

I have already been telling people I know to use these movers. I had a sudden last minute move and Asap movers came through on the clutch! This was an extremely professional job. They even put my furniture back together after the move. I could tell that safety was a big priority with the movers and they offered the best rate hands down. I don't plan on moving anytime soon but I will always be moving with Asap movers.

Bertie and his colleague were so absolutely wonderful! They arrived early and moved all the furniture out of my apartment at a lightning speed. They were so nice and I couldn't have had a smoother move. I will definitely be booking Bertie again for ALL of my moving needs.

Eyaury and his assistant were excellent. They arrived early and quickly moved the furniture pieces I needed moved. One item was a mirrored closet that I was concerned about getting damaged. They properly wrapped it and handled it with great care. It was moved up 2 levels of stairs without any damage. Highly recommend!

After some last minute move and schedule changes on my part, All Around Trucking was very flexible in accommodating my change in plans and still getting the move done on time. This was an in-building move, and while nothing was damaged, the movers did not wrap or tape the furniture as I was told they would. Overall working with All Around was easy and the service provided was a good value for the money.

Moved from Norfolk to Manhattan originally scheduled for Saturday but furniture arrived Friday night and Zestland was there at Apt waiting and ready to do the move. Zestland went waay above expectations, completing move in a timely manner and accommodated last minute request with a great attitude. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful! I would only use them if needing movers again in the city!
