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. 

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.

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. 

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.

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.

Reviews for Columbus furniture movers

In House Moving was promptly on the job when agreed upon. They moved two pieces of furniture for us from one floor to another. One piece was very heavy and awkward to handle. They carefully and skillfully maneuvered our furniture into their proper places. We were very happy for a job well done.

We had a lot of heavy, expensive furniture and they did a great job getting it moved without any damage. They were efficient and knew how to handle the furniture. I had a much better experience moving this time than I did the last time with a different company that was even more expensive.

Only one mover showed up even though I ordered two. Also, this company doesn't do furniture reassembly.

Vinnie and his crew were just excellent! He contacted me in the morning with an estimated ETA. They were very courteous and very careful with my daughter's furniture and belongings. They even padded the doorways they moved the furniture through. Definitely recommend this company!

In House Moving Company arrived on time and delivered on my request to move a sofa from my upstairs loft to my garage. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for help moving large pieces of furniture in the house. My request wasn't any easy one and they performed it flawlessly in short order. They were professional and proficient.

Our movers were very polite, and worked quickly! We moved from an upstairs apartment to a downstairs one, and we had some oversized furniture they had to take through the balcony because the stairway wouldn’t work, and they handled it very well! They handled everything carefully, and placed everything as asked in the new apartment. I would recommend them! :)

I can't say enough good things about Ron Spates. I was left in a moving bind last minute, and he pulled through within minutes of me reaching out. He and his partner worked quickly and carefully and got all my furniture moved out of my old place and into my new one in an hour, all while being kind and professional. If I ever know anyone moving within the area, I will automatically suggest Ron Spates.

The two movers that came to assist were fantastic. They were on time and even called about 15 minutes prior to showing up to ensure we were still on and ready for the job. They handled everything quite well and rather swiftly for the few bits of heavy furniture that we had to move from one location to another. Unfortunately they don't have their own trucks in this area yet, but the labour plus getting one's own rental truck is just as good.

Perron and Ronnell were awesome. Perfectly on time and they just didn’t slow down! I had them moving furniture around several rooms of the house and getting boxes of hardwood flooring to our third floor loft (we’re in the middle of a remodel). Smart, considerate and lovely conversationalists. I highly recommend them and will use them again.

They did a super job loading my parent’s furniture and boxes into the U pack trailer. It’s was their first time using U pack so they didn’t know what to expect. However, the guys knew exactly how to pack it all in. My parents were raving about their professionalism and expertise. Thank you for making their move a hassle-free experience!
