Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Should I buy moving insurance?

Your homeowners or renters insurance policy may or may not protect your belongings if they get lost or damaged during a move. If you’re moving valuable items, or if you’re moving a great distance, it could be a good idea to invest in moving insurance.

Interstate movers are required to offer you full value protection and released value protection to help reimburse you in case of damage or loss. If you’re moving within your state, check with your state’s consumer affairs agency to see if your state has rules and requirements regarding moving insurance and valuation coverage.

How much do you tip movers?

It’s recommended that you tip your movers individually around $4 to $5 per hour. For example, if a team of four movers spends a half-day (four hours) on your move, tip each mover $20. Or, some people tip 5% to 10% of their total bill for small moves and 15% to 20% for larger moves.

If you’re moving across state lines, you may hire different crews to load and unload your goods. In that case, divide the tips between both crews. It’s also a good rule of thumb to add a bit extra for tipping movers if you have special circumstances that have made the move harder, like a spiral staircase or an exceptionally heavy sofa. 

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. 

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.

We had a fantastic move from Kentucky to Clarksville, TN. They took care in loading and unloading everything. And moving all the heavy furniture so it was at least on the correct floor and in the right room of the house. I could not have asked for a smoother move!!!

ASAP Moving responded to my job order quickly. They were able to schedule a time to come out that was quick and convenient for me. The cost was affordable to move my super heavy washer and dryer with pedestals attached from garage to second floor laundry. They even hooked up washer and dryer for no additional cost. I would definitely recommend ASAP moving for your future moving needs.

This dream team was simply amazing. I received several auto replies from other companies via Thumbtack, but this team went above and beyond by proactively following up with me. They quickly responded to my questions. That was confirmation that We Haul Nashville was the moving company for my family. The moving experience was hassle free, and I had more items to moved than I originally planned, but they did not complain. I highly recommend using this moving team.

Rick kept in touch with me throughout the whole moving process. I was so worried because our last moving experience with a different company was a complete nightmare and Rick reassured me that the move would go smoothly. He kept his word all the way to the last item being placed in my new home. His guys worked hard and treated all my items with the utmost care. I can't say enough goods things about this moving team. If I ever move again I saved Rick's contact information in my phone because I know who I will call without a doubt. Thanks guys! Your expertise was greatly appreciated! Thanks for making this move unstressful!

We’re a newly 13+ year military transitioned family. In all of our years of being moved, we can honestly say that “Infiniti Movers” company is by far the best company to move us. They are the absolute best at what they do. They are professional, responsive, punctual and kind. They are incredibly transparent and are always willing to answer any questions or concerns you may have. They are also family friendly and are awesome with children! Thank you Infiniti Movers! You have gained a life long family of customers.

I moved a 1 bedroom apartment with these guys. All my furniture is wood, nice and new. Scheduling was super easy, done entirely over thumbtack. They called ~30 minutes prior to arrival. Two guys and a truck showed up with all the necessary equipment. They wrapped each piece carefully, and moved quickly but without cutting corners. Nice folks, too. They were true to their quote and the price of my move came in under budget. Literally the ONLY bad thing about this move was that one piece of furniture has a small (1/2 inch) scratch. I noticed it after the move was over and I can't even say it was their fault. I may very well have scratched it myself and just forgotten about it. Great service from these guys, would definitely move with them again.

James and Jarrett moved us today and they were excellent! I do not know how we would have managed without their help. They wrapped all of our furniture to prevent any damage and handled all of our belongings with care. They were professional and courtious and definitely knew how to load a truck. We had to move our belongings into storage and when our new house is complete we will definitely be hiring Weekend Movers again to help us complete our move to our forever home. You will not be disappointed!

They showed up half an hour early, and while we only paid for them to move our heaviest furniture, they took care of the rest of our moving truck and finished before they were even supposed to arrive. Excellent, professional, and courteous.

I hired Alpha to help me move furniture around within my house. I had a lot of heavy pieces that needed to move up and down stairs. The movers were on time, professional, worked hard and swiftly. They were careful and did not cause any damage to my walls. I would certainly recommend this company. I was very pleased with the job done. Thank you guys!
