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.

They were supposed to be here at 8 am this morning 12/23/17. No phone calls and no show. Left us in a big bind but thankfully EZ Movers were able to come over at the spur of the moment and get us moved! I will never recommend Good Movers!!

Darrell and his team helped us move from Midland, TX to Austin, TX last weekend and we made the right choice! We had an apartment on the second floor in Midland and was moving to an apartment on the third floor, so we knew this would be a challenge. Good Movers was very professional and they have very flexible hours. We suggested we start the day as early as 5:30 and it was no problem for Darrell and his crew. We highly recommend using Good Movers for any local or long distance moving in Texas!

Good movers were not good ... they were excellent! I was so pleased with their efficiency, friendliness, and care they took with our belongings. They moved every piece to every spot I asked of them. I am planning to hire them again in July to move some items to Lubbock for me!!

I have nothing but positive words for our experience. Robert was such a joy to work with. I was in the hospital during the time of our move and for him to make moving in to our new home so stress free was amazing. I was not able to be there for the move, but my husband could not stop raving about how professional the whole team was. They helped wrap anything that needed it with moving blankets, nothing was broken and they really treated our stuff with care. The pricing was also extremely reasonable for the quality of service that was provided. I would recommend Robert and his team to anyone looking for movers!

So thankful they were able to help my parents move on such short notice. The movers my parents originally scheduled didn’t show up and left them in a bind on Christmas weekend and E-Z movers showed up quickly on a short notice and did an amazing job! They moved their 4 bedroom house to another house across town so quickly while taking good care of all their belongs. Thank you guys so much!!!

Darrell Taylor with Good Movers provided a great quote, which is awesome BUT his moving crew was professional, punctual, worked quickly all the while remaining courteous. I've not found any items that were damaged (scratched, broken or dented) during my parents move. I truly appreciate Darrell going out of his way to make certain we were pleased before leaving the job. Would definitely hire again & will recommend Good Movers to family and friends. THANK YOU DARRELL!!

Good Movers showed up exactly on time on moving day with a crew of three. Wrapped, loaded and done in under 4 hours. Drove our stuff 6 hours, unloaded and done again in about 3 hours and headed off for another move. Darrell, Joey, Beau, Robbie and Malis got it done. No damage, no breakage! Great price. Definitely worth hiring!

We were consolidating our offices from 4 floors to 1. Good Movers arrived at 7:30 a.m., as agreed. They were pleasant and eager to please. They were careful not to damage the items moved nor the walls.

I hired this company to move my heavy furniture for me. They did a very smooth and excellent job. I could not ask for anything to go any better than what these men did. From the beginning Mr. R Leon came over to look at everything I needed moved and explained to me how they would be doing it. He made me feel very comfortable about the way they would be moving it. I've had a bad experience with my sofa being brought into my house and I explained to him about it. They wrapped everything with either moving blankets or wrapped to not scratch anything up. Very impressive! From start to finish they worked together and had everything moved in the time we had agreed. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family. I would also hire them again if I ever need anything moved again. Thanks again Mr. Leon and your workers for taking care of everything for me making it a smooth move on the heavy furniture.
