Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

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.

This was my first time hiring movers and I hired movers to pack my entire two bedroom apartment to move a few blocks down the street in philly. Anthony and Xavier were amazing! So careful with my furniture, really respectful of what was valuable and SUPER efficient! They took apart all my furniture, loaded the truck, unloaded it at my new house and put everything in place and back together in a few hours! Everything was in perfect condition. Will absolutely promote these guys through my work and recommend them to anyone who needs a GREAT moving company. We even added last minute travel plans to have even more furniture moved to a location outside the city. Anthony was beyond flexible, I will use his services for any future moving! Highly recommend!

Anthony was excellent to work with. He was communicative and flexible, and he accommodated me with pleasure every time I added a new piece of furniture to my move. I really appreciated how hard he and his helper worked to carry my VERY heavy wood furniture into my new home and up a narrow stairwell. They were pleasant, friendly, and professional, and they wore super cool Smooth Moves t-shirts! I would recommend this company and I would hire them again. The only reason this review is four stars is because they didn’t bring plastic wrap or moving blankets or furniture straps with them, but I imagine they will next time. Very satisfied customer!

They were fast and professional. The 2 guys arrived on time and completed the move in a hour. They disassembled and reassembled a bed frame, moved several pieces of furniture, and 20+ boxes. Overall a great job! Also the hourly rate price is reasonable. I would recommend their moving services to friends. Thank you U Rent We Haul!

I am so glad I chose Aaron to help me move some furniture and heavy boxes from the basement downstairs! He was extremely friendly, easy to work with, and quick to respond. He was quick and efficient but at the same time careful to not cause any damage to the furniture while carrying them up a windy staircase. Would hire again.

Gabriel is very attentive and courteous. My mom had to move one floor to another floor within the apartment complex. We only needed to move some big furniture's. About 5 to 6 things. Like curio cabinet, tv stand, dressers, sofa, queen size bed with frames, etc. He made most out of my time and my budget. I would use 7 Day Movers again!

Jordan and his crew arrived right on time and moved 2 apartments worth of furniture and boxes WAY faster than I expected. They were super nice, very professional and did everything quickly and efficiently. All of my items arrived in perfect condition.

The men were very personable that came and loaded the truck. They were polite and very professional the way they handled everything that we had to move from the beginning to the end. I can’t begin to say how pleased we are with the overall performances of the company. It made for a very easy transition, they asked where are the boxes and furniture would go and placed it in new proper rooms. We will be sure to be using “ I’d like to move it move it” in the future. My fiancé and I do believe as Ebeneezer and his partner we’re leaving yesterday that we heard them singing I like to move it move it as they drove away lol.

My wife and I are expecting a new baby so we hired U Rent We Haul to come rearrange the furniture in our house. Moving our 3 year old's stuff into the family room, moving sofas from the family room to our downstairs living room, moving the crib into our nursery, etc. The team was great! Efficient, polite and careful with our things. Very good communication beforehand as well. We would hire them again.

We hired Tiamokkee Smooth Chian to move furniture and items from a pod to an apt. They were top notch, dependable, efficient and nice. We had no complaints and definitely would recommend them. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Plus they were very reasonable.

Kadeem and Brandon were amazing! I highly recommend them for any moving job. We were flustered after moving from Atlanta and they made us feel our stuff was taken care of. They went above and beyond the call with putting our furniture back together and figuring out how to get pieces up our narrow stairs that we didn't think would fit. Hire these guys!

I had a wonderful experience! Art was quick to respond to messages/texts/calls and the transaction side of the move was smooth and pleasant. Ebenezer and Alex were absolutely fantastic--they were professional, efficient, and careful with my furniture. They negotiated a narrow staircase perfectly, and everything is just like I want it. If I'd known how great this service is I would have gone for the full move rather than labor only (despite how economical labor-only is). Thank you very much, and I'll absolutely come to you for my next move!

Aaron and his team were outstanding on so many counts! Responsive, highly professional, hard-working and thoughtful with all of our personal belongings, just to name a few important qualities. They also really took the time and attention to carefully move and organize our boxes and furniture before loading them up outside. A very organized process, altogether. I’m so grateful that this team was available for this big moving job. Would hire again in a heartbeat!

George’s moving and cleaning company were exceptional for our moving needs. We were moving within the same apartment complex, to a different building on a higher floor. I requested a quote from the company and within minutes George reached out to me and provided me with an estimate for my move. I posted pictures of my apartment to allow him to better quote me. He and his team were extremely careful with my furniture and my apartment. They arrived on time, were very polite and efficient. Throughout the entire process they were highly professional which was highly appreciated. I was impressed with their services and will definitely be using them in the future.
