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.

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 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. 

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.

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.

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. 

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.

Metroplex Piano Moving was top notch. They were available for the 100 questions I had and did a great job on the day of the move. They were on time, efficient, and they know exactly how a piano should be moved and secured. These guys are really the pros!

The movers were slow. I hired three men so that i could get done on time, there was only 1 skilled mover. The other two just dragged along. In the end, i wasn't able to finish moving a 1 bedroom in three hours with 3 men.My dresser was left unscrewed and my washer and dryer were not assembled. Things were just dumped all over the place. I went with this moving company because of the good reviews but it really didn't match up to the standard or my expectations. Also my dresser was damaged but the movers didn't document it, even when i told them and they acknowledged it. The company refused to compensate me for any of the damages. I have never been so frustrated with a service in my life. I hired movers to ease the stress of moving but the movers added to my stress. Never again will i ever use this company. I do not recommend at all.

Fast and efficient movers. Two employees from Cordobe came a little early, which helped us alot in finishing up the move earlier than planned. They did not waste time. They took care in the process so no damages. In future , for any moves, I will be definitely contacting Cordobe solutions.

This is the best moving company I used since moving to Texas. Great value and no hidden cost which is unusual with all the other moving companies I used. They were on time, professional, efficient and kind. I will refer this company to all my friends and family. Thank you guys for everything!

I would highly recommend this moving company! They were on time, responsive to my messages and were very efficient!! They made my moving experience so much easier!
Kathy C.
Moving from TX to Fl I quoted a couple movers- a big national company and Making your move easy - I chose the smaller company because not only was there price better but I felt they would be more flexible and they were. Disassembly & assembly all included where the big company charged extra or wanted me to hire a plumber to disconnect appliances. A few things broken but I think that’s to be expected for any move and they offered to reimburse. Honestly I was a little nervous about them handling an interstate move but overall very happy with Cruz & company.

They did an amazing job moving us from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 5 bedroom house. They helped take apart and put back together any furniture that needed it. They even helped throw out some trash. I would recommend Leader Movers to any one that wants a quick and easy move.

We used Best Price Movers for my daughter and her roommates college move. They did a great job and highly recommend them. I booked them with short notice, had multi pick up stops and they arrived on time and were very fast and efficient and with all the stops and final unload only took 4 hours. They wrapped furniture and took care of the belongings. I have used several movers in the past, but this has been the best experience yet. Most of the other movers I contacted didn't respond back, or needed every last detail of the move and charged a high fuel service fee charge and these guys charge what they quote. If you are looking for fast, reliable movers these are your guys! Thank you so much!

I received a personal phone call from Romero who was very knowledgeable about his business and was able to answer all of my questions. I felt he was honest and transparent with cost, time, and the way Castle Movers operates. He even texted me some pictures of their previous moves. Our move is scheduled for next weekend so I cannot comment on the quality of work at this point, but I have high expectations and believe Castle Movers will meet them.
