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.

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 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.

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.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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.

I'm thrilled that I found Oshane. He and his partner moved my items from a storage unit into my new home with ease, efficiency, and impressive professionalism. Both Oshane and his partner are friendly, extremely personable and responsive via text, phone, and on this site. They moved extremely heavy items (a washer and dryer, for example) with no problem, and they did the job in under an hour. I was delighted to work with them, and plan to hire them again to help me set up some of the furniture they moved earlier today. I couldn't recommend movers more highly; this has been my best experience to date (and I've moved a few times recently amidst the pandemic). If I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Please support Oshane in the wonderful work that he does. Thank you so much for an overall fantastic experience.

No showed. I had a pod set up moves to load all the furniture, due to the holiday time and having to move out by the 31st I had no room error and when they no showed I alone had to load all the mattresses, coach, desk, night stands and industrial storage racks. Wouldn’t recommend them to anyone unless you want to chance loading on your own for 12 hours.

Professional, polite team. Communication throughout project prep to completion was excellent (timely & professional). The team took care to uncreate, lift and move the large 325 lbs) unit into the house and up the stairs. They carefully unwrapped the unit, taking care to ensure no scratches or damage occurred. I gladly paid the extra fee to have them remove/dispose of all of the crating/packaging. Fantastic, polite, professional team to work with. Will definitely recommend to others in search of heavy lifting/moving services.

Showed up on time, moved things quickly, and lifted heavy items (like a fridge) with their own hands. Arranged things well in the van also. Would do business again with them. Thanks! A+

If you are looking for a strong, intelligent, professional, punctual, polite, and personable mover... than Kenneth is the one for you. He and his partner navigated heavy equipment through tight corners of our home without touching a door or a wall. They removed hall doors, prep’d and offered suggestions for the best way to move the items from the house, loaded it onto the truck and unloaded into storage - and FAST. I can’t thank you enough for the FANTASTIC and AMAZING job that you did for us today. We will be repeat customers. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY GREAT!

This has been the best moving experience that I have ever had! They are very responsive and responsible. They answered all of my questions no matter how many times I asked them. When I say prompt - I mean PROMPT! On time and very efficient. As soon as they walked in they got right to work. They worked right through until done on a HOT day! The energy and patience that they have will make you feel totally at ease. I am going to use them again the next time and I will definitely recommend them to others needing a moving service. This is a happy - happy customer!

I asked if they could help me move a very heavy piece of equipment and that arranged to be over the following day. They were on time, extremely kind and professional, and the most reasonable estimate I had received. I would definitely use them again and recommend to someone else. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

They were really all five. From the start very responsive to all my questions . He text which made communication easy for me, but he will call or email, your preference. Pricing was very clearly detailed with no hidden fees. We set a plan initially and had to change day and time and was very easy to work with on planning. On moving day morning Sovery confirmed that they were in route and exact time of arrival. When they arrived most everything was boxed and the big items they wrapped and protected while in transit. They worked fast and completed job ahead of time expected. Even did an extra stop to empty out our storage unit. Would definitely recommend Veteran & Son Moving. Extremely happy. Thank you.
