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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

I hired Wade to move some furniture for me in my home and across the street to my home he and a friend showed up moved the furniture but in moving the furniture they took apart my treadmill to get it down my stairs and into my garage I was told by Wade did he would return on Friday to put the treadmill back together and also to help me move another box up the stairs he would need help to do that I contacted him at 6:30 on Thursday night and he canceled on me telling me that he had plans to go out of town literally leaving me in a lurch with less than 12 hours to get someone here to help. Very unprofessional.

Terrible service. I was promised a team of professionals who would come equipped with necessary materials to move heavy furniture. One person showed up on time. Then an hour later, one more person showed up. Neither are professional movers and neither had equipment. Not even a dolly. The whole point of hiring movers was because I can’t lift heavy due to injury. These people aren’t movers. All she did was hire two random people off of Craigslist. She paid them minimally and kept the rest. Do not Hire this company!!!!!!!

I’ve been disappointed by others when I needed my furniture moved, but BEC was my Saving Grace. He is professional, punctual, and cares about his customers. I’ve locked him in my phone so You should do the same. Thank you

Thank you so much for your professional approach to our rather "complicated" needs. We were moving some furniture and boxes out of a garage into a van, some out of an apartment into pods, some out of pods into a van and some out of a pod into an apartment. They took instructions very well and worked independently on the tasks once they were oriented. I would definitely hire these folks again.

Where. Do. I. Begin? I move around every 1 to 2 years for work. This was by far, the best moving experience EVER!!! The Pops’ team handle our antique furniture with care without us having to ask. They finished the job in record time without a grumble, complaint, mumble, taking cigarette breaks, phone calls and neither smelled like marijuana. (YES, this does happen.) Now, would I hire them again? ABSOLUTELY! Would I recommend them? ABSOLUTELY!! Should you call only them? ABSOLUTELY!!! As soon as I submit here, the same review will be shared with Google reviews.
