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.

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’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. 

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.

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.

These guys helped us move a fountain. We took it apart into several sections- it was heavy, expensive and had a custom finish. They moved it carefully, used our moving blankets to wrap it, loaded it up and got it to its new destination without tragedy. Pleasant fellas, polite and easy to work with.

I cannot say enough Great things about these two fantastic movers! They arrived on time, had to wait on me. They moved a huge, heavy China cabinet for me and then they removed the legs to make it fit! They took time and were patient and helped me so much! Fantastic, Reliable, Careful and Very Professional. I will be using them again with any future moves. I honestly can’t thank them enough for their help.

We hired Andrew and co to move a piano that we purchased , it couldn’t have been any better! On time, patient and extremely professional!! You can trust them 💯 to move your piano, he even helped advise us about placement. We purchased some coasters to protect the floor from them, they said they would return to install them, I have no doubt that they will.

Packing was not so good (liquids and open seasonings leaked all over in several boxes, mix matched items, just sloppy) but nothing broken. Movers were good. Took about 11 hours for 2700 sq. foot house and we took apart and put together much of the furniture. I would hire them again. Partial packing and move was about $2560 (including tips).

Best move experience. Right on time. Wrapped my door frame to protect it and the furniture. They worked very quickly. On the third trip the elevator broke. They had to carry everything to the second floor and they did not complain. Very courteous and professional.

The father and son team that we got did a great job moving my son to his apartment. They did run behind schedule but once they got to my house did a great job covering all the furniture with wrapping and safely transporting it.

The Hauling Moguls were just the best! They came at the last minute on a Saturday and that really helped me out. They were professional and extremely helpful to me. I would recommend The Hauling Moguls to anyone. They will be the ones I call in the future, with any of my moving needs. They made it so easy for me!!

We had a very difficult project that required disassembling a complicated and labor intensive double bookcase, bringing it down a stairwell with turns and a wall and then reassembling. Next, they moved our family heirloom piano upstairs via the same staircase and it was a delicate and extremely heavy piece. DiShawn, B, and Marcus problem solved and worked incredibly hard doing these two very challenging things. They were positive the entire time and very professional! We are so pleased with their great work ethic and job well done. Ginger F. Colleyville, TX

Corey was in constant communication with me from beginning to end. His crew knew the process extremely well and everyone on the Cordobe team carried themselves in a very professional manner. My move was very straight forward. Furniture, pictures and a few boxes. The only exception was I needed a pool table to be moved as well. The table is extremely heavy due to the slate top and the wood construction. Corey and his two man crew maneuvered the table through several turns and up two steps before getting it to the front entrance and from there putting it in the trailer with the rest of my well placed furniture. Upon arrival at the storage unit, Corey and his crew began unloading the trailer. Since the pool table was the last item in it was one of the first items off. Corry noticed that there was a crack in the wood of the top bezel of the pool table. Corey quickly informed me of the mishaps and offered a solution of removing the bezel and having the cracked section replaced and then returning it. I accepted the proposed solution and they continued forward with the unloading. The job took close to 4 hours but Corey only billed me for 3 hours and threw in the wrapping of the furniture for free as a gesture of his concern with damaging someone else's property. Cordobe Solutions worked at a pace that got them in and out, so that I as the customer didn't feel as if the protection of my furniture wasn't important but I also didn't feel as if they were trying to milk the clock, I would definatly use them again as well as recommend their services.
