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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Furniture Moving and Heavy Lifting: From start to finish, a very professional job moving several pieces of heavy furniture down steps. Highly efficient and well-practiced team approach gets the job done quickly and carefully. I definitely recommend John Pesina Moving Company.

The crew did a great job moving 2 large, heavy pieces of furniture that didn't fit easily in the hall leading to room where items were to be placed. I plan on hiring them to move furniture from the garage as well as moving pieces to other rooms. Very nice guys.

This moving company was very punctual. They came and moved my furniture with no issues. We had a few miscommunications with the end placement of the furniture but I contacted management and they got it taken care of for me in the same day. Great set of people and very nice.

Hire better helpers and also be patient when moving the furniture. They were hired for 3 hours and rushed through by pulling furniture very roughly. Finished in less than half the time. Not happy with their way of moving. The helpers couldn’t speak any English nor the leader could communicate effectively to them. Not professional movers in my opinion

Emmanuel with Brother Bear Moving was very professional in coordinating my move. They were punctual in getting there. He and his team did a great job, not a single scratch on the furniture that was moved even though it was quite heavy.

We hired Texas Elite Moving in July 2015 to move our furniture from our old house to our newly built home. Chris estimated it would take 4 and half hours and his estimate was dead on accurate. They took good care of our furniture and finished the project without any damage to pur new home. I would highly recommend this moving company to anyone.

MME came within a day of my contacting them. I had a VERY heavy piece of furniture that needed to be moved and it was a delicate, difficult move. They spent so much time preparing and the move went perfectly. I cannot recommend them enough!

A little on the expensive side for moving 1 piece of furniture, but these guys were on the ball, responsive, and took care of business quickly. They were also helpful with ancillary issues that came up during our move.

Right on time even with short notice and helped us switch our bedroom and dining furniture and load and unload a uhual. We live in an older 2 story home and we’re moving large antique furniture and everything went smoothly! Grateful for the help!

We had some heavy furniture to unload from a moving pod and take upstairs. They showed up on time, moved quickly and even helped us assemble a massive desk so they could flip it for us

Using Bellhops to move my furniture this morning was such a great decision. My movers were polite, professional, efficient, and had great attitudes through the process, even while carrying things downstairs in the middle of the summer.
