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.

They did an excellent job but my move was way over my budget, I was moving 2 bed bedroom apartment (though I did not move 2nd mattress and bed) I had king mattress with box springs, 16 boxes and few kitchen appliances, rocking chair, toys and a storage shelf. It took almost 6 hrs to move and finally I got to know moving via elevator was time consuming, had I known earlier, I would have asked the movers to use the stairs which was right next to the elevator. Again Franco and the other person did a great job. I would definitely refer dfwmoving service to my friends.

I was on a tight schedule. I had to move two states away with a small move (which few companies want to do during peak season, but The Perfect Move had no issue doing). I needed my stuff packed up on a Friday and driven two states away and offloaded the next morning after I acquired the keys to my new home. (So I could set up the net and work on Monday). DJ was quick to get back to me with a quote. He followed up and did a socially distanced inventory over the phone (I texted him pictures and verbally what we owned). He even had our movers, Ben and Gabi, bring materials to pack up a few precious paintings we had. If you need boxes or packing material...don't go to Uhaul or Amazon, talk to DJ his prices are WAYYYYYYYY better. Everything went better than planned and I didn't feel like a customer. I felt like I had a family member who just happened to have a moving business move me. One last note, when you compare moving companies, please make sure that any company you compare The Perfect Move to has United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) to move your belongings. There are swindlers that have been known to move your stuff and hold it hostage until you pay them MORE. (Google it, it's a legit thing).

I chose Brother Bear Moving to assist me in clearing out all the items in my garage. I'm currently undergoing a full renovation and needed all my items moved to a close by storage unit. The movers arrived ahead of time, they were extremely professional, and very knowledgeable. They did an excellent job and definitely made things a lot easier for me. If you are in need of moving services, I definitely recommend these guys. The work was impeccable and their response time for scheduling jobs was spectacular. I'm very much appreciative for the help.

Tyler and his crew showed up promptly and began helping me move my larger items out of my apartment. They disassembled my furniture and wrapped it. Very professional guys and diligent workers. I am so pleased I chose them to help me move my items to storage. I will be definitely setting up another move with them when it comes time to take everything back out. I highly recommend this team and company.

These guys were great! Very prompt and even gave me a break on time since I had to end up going to get tools to cut the lock off of my storage unit. They didn't start the time until they started the move. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a good mover.

Worst move I ever had. I would never recommend them & never go with them. 3 guys came for my move and 1 guy is chilling & not capable of moving items with out touching them to wall & put dents !! I have seen them throw my stuff in side the truck, took 20-30 min just to figure out where to put ramp on truck. When I try to reach them next day, no response. I am about to sue the company.
