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.

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. 

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 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 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.

Excellent moving experience with Clark movers. I highly recommend them!

I have never heard of EkoMovers but decided to give them a shot since I’ve read a ton of good reviews and the quote I got with Two Men and a Truck was high. Im very glad I did. The two movers that I had were amazing. They were very professional, easy, and even fun! I moved from a third floor condo to a two story house with basement. I had a lot of fragile items and nothing was broken. Moving sucks but EcoMovers made my move smooth. If I ever move anything again they will be the movers I use.

My daughter and I needed to downsize and move, I knew we needed help. I wanted to hire locally, so I googled "local movers" and my zip. EKO movers were listed under thumbtack. I was unfamiliar with thumbtack, so I looked into it, got some quotes, and hired EKO movers! This was SO easy, I was able to discuss items thru messaging, pricing was very exact. Tom and Andrew were polite, efficient, funny, and very professional! They went beyond the original items, and loaded up some other heavy boxes, staying within the quoted time frame! This helped us out tremendously! I can't recommend EKO MOVERS enough!!

The movers called to let me know they were running a few minutes late and arrived only 10 minutes from scheduled time. I appreciated that they called. I feel they still arrived on time. They immediately started working on moving the items needed to be moved from 3rd to 2nd floor of the building we live in. They encountered a problem with taking down the queen size bedframe because some of the screws were stripped, but they worked until they figured a way to get the job done. Both movers were very pleasant and professional. I would definitely use Manifest again!

I was so excited to have movers for my move . They insured me that my date and time was confirmed. The day i was supposed to move they stated they would be 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 mins late. Which me and my husband didn’t mind as we was getting everything together so we could make it easier for the movers. Then 2 hours go by and I don’t hear from them. So i call , the man stated he would call back to give eta of the movers , no call back. I call the lady (who was nice) that i made my appt with. She says she will call back once she knows the eta. So me and my husband is standing inside a packed up house with furniture moved to one room for them just to wait around and not know what time our movers are coming. The appt was set for 1-2 i didn’t get a call back they finally texted me at 4:35 pm saying “ Okay I got the guys right around the corner from you they are finish imma give you three guys for the price of let me know what you want to do ASAP thanks” . If we are paying $300 we deserve a great service ! Tiffany was friendly however my time was wasted and had to move myself with no help since it was last minute. Pro movers left a nasty taste in my mouth . Very unprofessional!

OMGOSH!! I can't say enough about Michael and Vargus! Being on a snug budget, I hired An Extra Body Movers to load my rented Uhaul with the furniture and my daughter and I were going to load the boxes. WRONG. Michael explained how it needed to be done in a certain way. We watched in amazement as they turned the inside of the Uhaul into a cross between Tetris and a Rubix Cube! They asked us to look inside several times and then explained the procedure. Vargus was right there every time either of us were lifting and said, I got that, just set it down. I anticipated an evening of wearing myself out loading all of it, but within the 2 hour window, they created a masterpiece and now we can relax till we move ! They handled everything carefully, no tossing or cramming things in places. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!!

Amazing experience with the guys of Clark & Sons - they were right on time, finished the job in about the amount of time they said they would (even after we threw more stuff at them than we'd originally intended to when getting the initial quote), were quick and super careful with all our stuff - especially our monster couch and chair, which are full of heavy mechanics. And their prices were SO reasonable! This was a temporary move into an apartment between selling and buying houses for us, and we will definitely be using them again when we finally find our forever house. Highly recommend!
