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.

Matthew was very courteous and professional. He handled my things like they were his own. I had only a small moving job, but unlike other movers, he worked with me to do my small job at a reasonable price. If you need a mover for any size job, you won't be disappointed in NorthernStar Moving.

The 3 men who were the movers did their work well. Yet the job should have been sized up in advance by company leadership. The load of furniture and supplies we had to move was too much for the one truck. A preview of the load by company foreman would have realized the error, it it didn't happen. Move was less than desirable as a result. Yet the movers worked diligently and with great effort to make move happen under the circumstances. A 3 out of 5 overall..

They did not show up. I had to message them twice (during and after our scheduled time)... they are only getting 3 stars because they called on a 3rd party mover to actually do the move (it was not Lone Star Express), and those movers did a great job. Unfortunately it was almost 4.5 hrs from our original move time so we ended up still moving until after 1 am (on a school night for my kids), and ultimately did not finish moving all items into the new house (20 mins away). Really disappointed that I’m the one that had to reach out to find out why no one contacted us or showed up. Very unprofessional and I selected these movers specifically due to ratings.

I agreed on a date the movers that were sub contracted by Safari Movers came looked at my stuff and said”Oh NO! We can’t move you your furniture is too big this will be 2 trips their truck was slightly larger than a mini van. I reached out to the gentleman I had been speaking with to tell him they just left th property and told me to go rent a truck at uHaul and hire their people to help me(not an option I would even consider I then had to hire professional movers at $200 an hour to move me $1800 later stay VERY FAR AWAY FROM SAFARI MOVERS HORRRIBLE UNPROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

My experience with Secured Moving Company and the crew was excellent! I have not moved in years but, once I spoke with Arthur, all of my worries went away. Arthur has been in the business for many years and it shows! His knowledge is impressive. I believe I called Arthur a "genius" in one of our conversations. His crew arrived on time and ready to work with great personalities! Romero and DC were a pleasure to work with! These guys moved fast, efficiently, and nothing was damaged. I can not say enough about Secured Moving Company, Arthur, Romero, and DC. Thank you guys for everything and I WILL be calling upon you for future moves! Hire this company, you won't be disappointed!

Over the years I’ve had several professional movers both local and long distance. Family Moving personal, without a doubt, is among the best I’ve encountered. The head mover, Colton, who came with his able helper, took great care of wrapping the delicate dining room set in Blankets and plastic wrap we bought and had moved to our house. They took special care to secure it in their large company moving truck. I followed them to our home, and the took care to drive responsibly and at the posted speed limits. When they arrived, the fluidly carried our dinning room set into our home. They went beyond theCall of duty when we asked them to move our older furniture (we are giving to the Salvation Army) into another room and into the garage to make room for the new furniture. All their work was performed within the 2hr limit we contracted for, and the extra work they did, as well, Came in at the expected cost. This review would be incomplete if I stopped here without mentioning the office staff who worked with me to give me a estimated cost and set up the move on or near my requested move date. They were very courteous and helpful, and it was obvious to me they were quite knowledgeable in their craft. I know this review is probably long, but there are so many un-scrupulous People in the moving business, I was very pleasantly surprised to find one that didn’t try to rip you off or shortcut the work needed to do the job. We do not hesitate to recommend Family Mobbing to anyone.

DO NOT HIRE THIS MOVER!!! I set up moving with the company weeks ago, stayed in constant communication almost daily about upcoming move. While being pushed back late Saturday night an all the sudden Sunday “truck maintenance” and pushed back another hour. THEY NEVER SHOWED UP, SENT ME TO VOICEMAIL AND THEN OVER AN HOUR LATER SENDS ME A TEXT MESSAGE THAT THE GUYS HAD AN EMERGENCY ALL THE SUDDEN. Literally the day of our move!!! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!! We used Thumbtack for all our services and I will make sure this company never gets hired again.

5?'s+++ I needed a heavy entertainment center moved within a mile of my old place of residence, this obviously wouldn't take over an hours worth of work. I already did some research and saw most places charged by the hour. Romero was willing to take off an hour of service since my move was so small and wouldn't take over an hour to complete. I was ready for him to just toss it on the truck and get moving, but he made sure he used blankets to protect my items. I would recommend Castle Movers to anyone!! Thanks Guys!!!

Wow! These guys came to the rescue. Our other movers left us high and dry. They came same day and worked so hard. They were polite, fast, efficient and most of all worked in the cold, rain to get us moved. Nothing but good things to say! Thank you guys! Rockstars!
