Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

I was told the movers would arrive between 8 -9:00 am, however they did not make it until 11:00 am. Granted, they had a legitimate excuse and once they got started the move went very quickly. I had a 3 man crew and entire move was complete within 3 hours. The movers were very, very nice and polite. Overall, a pleasant experience. Thank you!

Hire guys that actually come to work ready to work. I had all my stuff packed up and already taken apart it took them 4 to 5 hrs and they charged me 500 dollars. Keep in mind they only moved me two blocks over in my Same neighborhood. It's my fault because the company that I normally use over the last 15 years on 3 moves were already booked they are called Awsome Movers. This company was absolutely terrible. They took so long that I told them to stop and just move the big stuff and I would just move all the boxes because they were taking so long. Needless to say it was a long hard move and even tho they grabbed all the big stuff I felt like I did the whole move myself.

These guys were able to come an hour earlier than quoted. (I was trying to move ASAP) They showed up and I was immediately comfortable. They got right to work and didn’t stop until the job was done. It was the easiest moving experience I’ve ever had, and a lot more inexpensive than I expected. I will absolutely hire these guys every time I move. Thank y’all!

Bo and the guys were awesome! They showed up on time. They were so efficient and conscientious of all of their steps in moving me from a second floor apartment to a third floor apartment. The cost of the move was appropriate and there were no hidden charges. What could have been a very stressful day turned out to be quite easy just because of how they took charge with professionalism, kindness and friendliness. I will use them again when I move

Jason REALLY helped us out in a bind! We called him and pleaded with him to help us move a HEAVY storage cabinet to the second story of our house. He was already booked; but he and his crew managed to fit us in after hours. The storage cabinet was massive- but they hauled it up our steep staircase with pure strength and professionalism. I would definitely recommend them for your moving needs!

1st Choice Moving & Storage provided first class service. Bruce was very pleasant to deal with and provided updates on the process as we went along. Carlos and the team were right on time and got right to work. They were courteous and careful, wrapping everything and protecting the floors. We had some very heavy pieces and the team handled them all, with no damage. Job very well done, I would use 1st Choice Moving again.

NR Movers did not perform a professional job. One of the workers would not put a mask on. They broke a window and did not pay for it. They also put holes in my sheet rock. I would never hire them again.

Shomari and his team were excellent! We used them to deliver a product from our business, and we couldn't have had a better experience. They were very communicative and the quality of their work was superb. Even when faced with inconveniences from the side of the customer who was to receive our item, Moody movers did a wonderful job responding and reacting to these inconveniences. We highly recommend them!

Javier was the lead man and had his crew do a great job! They were professional and wrapped each piece of furniture and treated them with such care as they moved it. They did not "take their time" as other companies I have used before to milk me for the hourly rate. These boys hustled! I don't ever post reviews, so this is something I have to pass on. I will use thus company again and will recommend them to anyone out there.

First off, Bruce called me the day before he was supposed to move me and told me he had to change the time from 2-4 to 4-6pm. It was the last day of the month and his crew did not arrive at all on that date and I was locked out of my unit until I made payment of $240. No pro-rating was allowed and no refund. So, he told me he would cover the charges. His crew arrived and the paperwork showed a trip charge which was not on the quote he gave me so I refused to sign and called him to let him know. He did not answer and his crew took off before I could even put the lock back on. He responded by saying these charges were discussed verbally. But that is not true. One of the reasons I picked them is because there was no trip charge. He also did not pay the charges he said he would charge so now I need to find another mover and pay $240 in order to access my storage unit.

Given that there was a lot more to the move than expected the ctee fid a fine job A 2nd trailer and a 3rd msn was required. Theybworked ftom 10 am until 7:30 PM The guys were very careful.not to damaged my belongings. They were very respectful, which I appreciate. The house had very smsll doorways. Making it difficult to.get some of the furniture in the bedrooms, but the did manage to get some of it in them. Had it not been such a long day and dark, I would have ask them to put the items in the house in a different manor; With most boxes being placed in one or 2 of the bedrooms and furniture arranged a little differently, for easier access. But, considering all the restraints with space, the amount of boxes, containers, weight of the furniture, distance/traffic, they did a fine job. The crew members were friendly, clean polite, accomodating The pricing was fair. I will use them again.
