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.

Came on time with all advanced packaging stuff. Packaging and putting stuff in boxes was quick and precise. These guys must be in moving business for ages I guess. Brought 4 guys as opposed to 3 promised. Finished moving 2 hrs earlier than expected. No damage or loss happened in my 61 miles move.

On Demand Moving Services did a fantastic job moving us into our new home! They helped me with less than a weeks notice and even sent an extra mover. I would recommend this company to anybody. I would have given them 5 stars but they did mark my wall up with a decent size scratch/dent.

They did the job, but several of my items of furniture were damaged in the process. Proper care to protect the items being moved was not taken.

These guys were great! They did everything that they said they would do, when they said they were going to do it. Aaron went above and beyond in the communication department...confirming his intended arrival time the day of our move. Both gentlemen showed a great deal of respect for our belongings and property. I would highly recommend Aaron Haul and will definitely use them again for my own moving needs.

I hired Reginald to move an expensive, large and HEAVY dining room set that I purchased from my neighbor that is moving. He quoted me a very reasonable number which Led me to believe that he had under-estimated the job. When he showed up with one other guy, I was certain they could never pull this off. When Reginald looked at the furniture, I think he thought the same thing, but somehow, someway they pulled it off! Both of these gentlemen were professional and courteous. They treated the furniture as if it were their own, made sure everything was reassembled properly and were more concerned that it was placed properly then we were. I highly recommend Reginald and "Movers-for-a-cause" and will definitely use them again.

I needed someone to move a bedroom set I had purchased to my home. Ebenezer and his partner were 15 minutes late, but they called to let me know they were on their way and that they had hit traffic. They were very careful with my items and even informed me of some damage that they noticed while loading so that I would be aware. It was a tight fit at my house, but they were able to get a very large king bed frame, armoire, dresser, and nightstands up the stairs without having to take down any doors, banisters, etc. Ebenezer was even nice enough to give me some tips about getting our new mattress up the stairs when it comes (especially since its a King and we thought we were getting a Queen!!). I also had them move the top of a china cabinet into my dining room from the garage. Both men were very courteous and got the job done in a timely manner.

BIG NO NO.......... Don't tempt by their quotation. We have hired for long distance moving. 2 Guys came for 2 bed apartment. They are very Unprofessional, they didn't get proper tools for assembling and dissembling. They destroyed my baby CRIB and King Bed. Art was very responsive until I make the payment, after that he didn't respond to my text. He gave me $100 discount for the damage but they spoiled $2000 worth furniture.
