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.

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.

Reviews for Grove City movers
Ciera F.
Mike and his team are wonderful! So easy to get ahold of with questions. Very professional, kind, and courteous. Went above and beyond to make our moving experience the best it could be. They tackled a second story apartment move with the greatest attitudes possible. Would recommend them for any and all moving needs.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed working with John and his crew. This was a big move for my family moving our entire home. They handled all of our items with such care and attentiveness while still working efficiently. Everyone in the crew worked very well together. The crew was very friendly yet professional and hardworking young men. I am so glad I found them on thumbtack. If you are looking for fast working movers that will get the job done right, call John and his crew at Muscle Movers. They will move your things with care.

Needed a mover fairly quickly On 5/26 for an emergency move... contacted on Thursday 5/21 and got a response quote. Left several messages on 5/21, 5/22 and 5/25 as well as a voice message on 5/25. Got NO responses and now my son and his pregnant wife are stuck with a 50 year old woman and 13 year old boy helping them move.

Exceptional!!! I had a last-minute move which was supposed to be completed by several friends who all backed out on me at the last minute. I looked up good movers on Thumbtack and they sent me a list of seven different companies. I called four out of the seven; two never called me back and two made arrangements to come to my house and give me a quote. The first and only one to show up was Dennis! He explained the history of his company and answered every question I had, in detail. He did a fast, but thorough walkthrough of my two bedroom townhouse, took down all my information and sent me a quote. I have to admit when I got the quote I was pleasantly surprised, but a little wary, because all the things he said he would do on my Moving Day; to me didn't equate to the very reasonable price. I accepted the price and scheduled my move for Saturday. As life sometimes does, Saturday came very fast and I was not prepared for my move as I still had things totally disorganized all around the town house. Dennis and his crew, Zac and Dennis Jr. Came in Dennis professionally assessed the situation and offered me one more day to get things a little more organized. Well that was just what I needed and HE DIDN'T CHARGE ME TO RESCHEDULE!!!! The next day they came out looking very professional and very prepared and in little over 4 hours (and trust me I have a lot of stuff) my move was over and my new apartment was three quarters of the way setup (I just have to unpack a few boxes). Over the years I have moved quite a bit while in the military and I have used many different moving companies, even after I retired from the military, but I have to say "You Move Me" moving company is by far the best, fastest, professional and friendliest moving company I have ever encountered!!! If you want it done right, with no damage to your property, clean professional-looking uniformed workers (no smelly guys) and you want it done fast, you need to contact "You Move Me" moving company Columbus and ask for Dennis or you can look them up on Thumbtack or visit their Facebook page. I will be recommending this company to all my friends.

Having never used Thumbtack or Terrell, I wasn't sure what to expect. He showed up on time and we got straight to work. I didn't realize the bed I was moving was bolted together until we started to disassemble it and I didn't bring any tools. Terrell had a tool box and we were able to make it work! The furniture was moved quickly, efficiently and without incident. I echo the other comments about Terrell's respectful nature. Definitely recommend him!

They were horrible. We wanted them to move our big stuff and they bring a 12 foot box truck. They moved my washer, dryer, two couches and an elliptical. This was $280. They were supposed to be at my house in the morning and didn’t show up until 1:12pm. They complained the whole time and spent more time saying they couldn’t do something instead of actually trying to. When they got to our new home they said they couldn’t get the dryer down and my dad and myself took it downstairs with ease. Most frustrating thing of all is that they were 7 minutes over 2 hours and charged us an extra 30 minutes. They moved 5 items in all for $280. They suck! Period! It would never pay for anyone to hire these guys. They suck all the way around. I would like for the owner to call me please. If not I’ll be calling.

We had only had 3 rooms of furniture and patio furniture to go on a truck. Antique dining room suite: very heavy. They didn't have a smaller truck so we paid for a bigger truck.Very good and mannerly movers. Approximately Transported 84 miles mostly freeway. I thought the bill could have been negotiated to be a bit less.

Dennis is the BOMB. I called needing movers, fast. He got me in in 3 days! Although I missed a message, I was still able to get them 5 days after my request and a the end of their day. They were able to fit me in to help me out! Super professional, super well mannered, and just upstanding gentlemen! Very very thankful for thumbtak and these guys.
