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.

This was an excellent choice of movers & I can’t say enough good things about the company! My movers, Sam & Doug, were punctual, very pleasant & sociable, & took very good care of moving all my furniture & belongings from the ground floor & up the steps to the 2nd floor. They worked nonstop until the job was finished despite me asking them to take a break & have some snacks I offered them. Very hard workers!! Thank you so much Westmoreland Movers & I will happily refer your company to others planning a move!

Very happy with my choice to work with Elite! I had to change my move date twice due to issues and they were so accommodating. I only had two movers and they worked very quickly. They worked so well together and were able to figure out a way to have to only make 1 trip instead of 2 after I underreported all of the stuff I didn’t realize I had. I highly recommend using Elite for your move!

Fast, diligent, and definitely thoughtful in their moving processes. I was very satisfied with the care they gave to the piano. Also, when I bought the piano I had no idea it was so huge (craigslist), thinking it was a standard size - turned out to be an upright grand! No problem from Travis and Co. They moved it in and were wonderful. I highly recommend them!

The labor team arrived slightly late and one man short (no big deal) but was professional throughout the entire process. Unfortunately, the office sent a truck that was far too small for the job, which resulted in us being unable to complete our move in one trip. The team also had to fight the small truck to load only a partial load. Everything in all on our estimate was unable to fit on the small U-haul (yes, they brought a U-haul for a four BR home). Let me say that again, ITEMS INCLUDED ON OUR ESTIMATE were not able to be moved. Of course, we also had a few items that were over looked (we're talking boxes and an end table) on the estimate... but I would have happily excluded them if the ENTIRE ESTIMATE was moved. Our small handful of items did not eat up so much room to prevent moving nearly an entire garage full of furniture and boxes. At the end of the day, the company management and I agreed on a one hour labor credit to offset the time the team spent arranging and rearranging and rearranging the truck to maximize space. I simply wanted to cut my losses and get what could fit moved. Again, the team was great, friendly, professional... but the office screwed me and their own employees. In summary, this company arrived in a U-Haul to save money, and it ended up costing me another move and their worker's time.

Matt at Make Moves was extremely responsive from day one and put my mind at ease that my move would be seamless. I received a quote and the men stuck to it. The price was certainly right. What helped tremendously was that I was very specific with the contents of the move, including dimensions of large furniture, so that the correct size of truck could be sent. The truck was completely full. The men were hard working, friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and competent. Mike, the team lead, was a natural mastermind to effectively packing the truck for maximum space and no shifting. I am a real estate agent and will be happy to recommend this company to my future clients.

The movers loaded a trailer and pickup truck. I drove the trailer 640 miles. I was very happy with the way they packed the pickup and trailer. The load didn’t shift during the drive. I was very happy about that since I was the only person in the pickup truck.

This is the first time that I had to use thumbtack.I was quite happy with the responses I got and in a timely manner too. Peter from Pittsburgh white glove was the best mover that I had the pleasure of doing business with. He was truly a professional, knew what he was doing and talking about, courteous, punctual and very reasonable in his pricing. Him and his associate Cameron handled my furniture with great care, making sure that there was going to be no scratches or damages done to my furniture. They made me feel at ease and without stress through out the entire process. It was honestly worry free. If I ever find myself in another predicament and if I had to use movers I will definitely go with Pittsburgh white glove. A job well done. Two thumbs up. To anyone considering them, you will find their prices fair and the service great. I highly recommend them.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Travis. He was extremely friendly, fair, and professional. He was very upfront about the process and myself and my family all felt very confident working with him. I was honestly a bit at sea when it came to finding movers, but we were super grateful we worked with Travis. Oh, and his prices were excellent - at least as good as anyone else we approached. I'm glad we trusted the myriad positive thumbtack reviews. We're planning to recommend him to family friends.
