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.

I reached out to him last minute to move a couch that wouldn’t fit through the door. I asked if he could move it up the balcony on the 2nd floor. Him and his guy came and moved it within minutes. I recommend using them for any moving needs.

Jack was great at corresponding with me and coordinating the move appointment. Carlos, Chris and Chris were amazing. My best move experience And I’ll be back the next time I move. These guys carefully maneuvered some tricky spaces and put my past movers to shame. My belongings were well protected and handled with care. I’m so happy I chose The Moving Kings.

Thank you for helping us move so fast and for dropping extra stuff. Our move out date changed a couple of times and they were still available. Thank you very much and the team that helped us move was very respectful. John responded quickly to my messages whenever I had an update for our move out date. The team assigned to our move out date was fantastic. They moved all carefully, nothing was damaged. If I could I would give them 10 out 5.

I had a multi-stop move to pickup FB Marketplace furniture planned this morning but my movers had an emergency come up and I needed to find a new mover within a 1-hour notice. S-iregold responded quickly ready to help me move! They arrived at the first stop ahead of schedule and were very prompt and proactive getting through each of the stops. Highly recommend this team for your move!

They did a great job with our move. We moved from Austin to Kansas City. Spotted Frog did the packing and loading in Austin and I drove my own moving truck. Everything was great as we unloaded on the other end.

Allan did a great job moving stuff for our home. They were extremely patient and careful with the move and knew what they were doing. The moving took longer than expected and did not fit fully into one truck so Allan went back and got the remaining stuff for free. The rates were very reasonable as well. Highly recommend Allan for any move.

Mountain Movers did a fantastic job. From initial coordination with Jason to the pleasant experience of working with Mike and Patrick to move everything. They were polite, professional, and prompt. I messaged them on a Wednesday for a Friday move and they made it happen - an overall really good experience!

Miguel and his team were very professional, courteous, and handled our items with great care. I'd trust them to move fine art and collectibles if I had them! Everything was moved with such care, like they were moving their personal items. They were on time, knowledgeable, and efficient. Our move took less time than estimated and everything was checked before the job ended. TVs were plugged in and a final check of the truck by me to ensure nothing was left behind. They were very friendly, thorough, and did I mention professional? You need them for your next move- you will not be disappointed. The "big guys" aren't worth their rates or time because I've moved a lot and had them. Pad and Dollies will be my mover now wherever I ago. Thanks Miguel!

Our outstanding experience begin with Shane when we called to ask questions about our move. She was courteous and answered all my questions clearly. She helped us schedule our move in a timeframe that worked well for us. The movers arrive actually about 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Chris and Michael were our movers. They did an outstanding job and moved all of our belongings without even the tiniest scratch to even the walls. They handled everything with great care and great experience. We will definitely be using them again.

Just got my move completed today from my parent's house to a one bedroom apartment and it went great! They two guys moved everything super fast and they were very professional and wrapped my furniture and were careful with my paintings which were also part of the move. They also asked where I wanted everything placed. I will definitely use them again in the future when I move again. I highly recommend this company. The owner is very responsive to messages and keeps in contact leading up to the move day.
