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.

Highly recommend! They were so quick even working with me on a last minute move. Both movers were friendly, hard-working, and fast! I’ve hired three different movers and they were the best!

this was the worst moving experience I had. Both movers came into my house very dirty. they arrived two hours late. They didn't finish moving me until 6am the next morning. I couldn't go to work. They broke my tv and dirty my furniture. I cal led their boss and let him know what took place he took $200.00 off the bill so I can have Stanley streamer come and clean my furniture. I did realize they broke my tv until a few days after when I was unpacking. I will let their boss know they broke my tv as well. please stay away from them. they are the worst moving company .

Honestly service was terrible, I won an item from an auction house. It was a desk and hutch. I had been told that the movers would be there to pick it up at 12, as I waited for the movers come. I was told they would be 10 mins late. Later it was 20 mins late, then delayed again 30 mins late and yet again 20 and again another 20 mins. The movers didn’t shows up until 2:20. On top of being late one of the workers refused to help( they look like kids who really didn’t know what they were doing) so I then had to help move the desk and hutch into the car and load it as well. (by this point I was desperate, I had to tell the worker that it would safe to strap it to secure it place, clearly they didn’t have much experience or none at all). I also had to unload it as well and bring it upstairs where I wanted the desk to be. As I was helping the guy move the desk up the stair he suggested to slide it up the stairs he said “It would be easier like that” I have hard wood floors so I said “No I think it’s just better if we lift it, I don’t want the floor to be scratched” Mind you I had to call out of work today as well. As it kept getting late I called the movers to get to the pickup location ASAP as how it was only to a certain time you can pick up your item and passed that time I can no longer pickup my item. So not only we’re they late, I had to help with the process loading and unloading it into my home, I wasn’t even able to get to work and still asked me to pay $400. Originally it was supposed to be $450. They only decided to deduct by $50 it should have been more like $100 or more. Now mind you these are young adults (18-20) which I did not expect at all. I can see that they could have a booming business if 1 better time management 2 communication 3 know more about the items that are being moved 4 better workers as well 5 Having more experience. It seems they just like jumped into business without putting much thought into it

Got a quote over the phone and was told that’s what I would pay on the day of the move, no hidden fees. When they arrived, they tried to charge me 5% for tip when I was told and have an invoice stating only 2%. They also tried to charge me an additional fee for them to drive back to their base. They had a special that stated at the time of my move they would mount my T.V.’s on my walls for free. When I went over this with the movers they told me they wouldn’t be able to do it because they don’t have the tools and don’t know how to. To make things worse, they stated they would not assemble my daughters crib, only take it apart, again, this is not what’s stated on the invoice. I asked to speak to a manager and they couldn’t get in contact with anyone from the company (go figure). After over an hour, I finally got to speak to the owner of the company who was a sweetheart. She did everything in her power to make things right, she even came to my home personally. Although the owner was great, there were some negatives that I can’t overlook. In addition to the issues with the invoice, the guys that were sent for the move were extremely slow and took 8hrs just wrapping and loading. The move took them a total of 12hrs to complete, and they had to bring more men to help finish the job. They left my old home and new home a mess and were not careful and didn’t clean up after themselves. I had scuff marks on my walls, rolls of tape were all over both homes. While the owner did an amazing job making up for the issues, my overall experience with this company was not ideal. I would say to make sure the charges are clear and get an invoice ahead of time. Additionally, call ahead to confirm and make sure you request the right number of workers needed to complete the job on time.

I was moving from a 1 bedroom to a studio/loft and they were amazing. I would highly recommend them as they took care of my furniture, and wrapped everything. I had a heavy box spring that was quite difficult to get into the loft part but they took great care doing it. Definitely highly recommend them.
