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.

Brandon's Moving was on time, flexible, considerate, and made the move a breeze. I literally did not have to do anything but sit back and watch them get the job done! I would highly recommend this moving company.

Brother Bear Moving Company responded to me and confirmed a next day AM within 20 minutes of my quote with no hassle- it was blissful. The movers personable, kind, helpful, & worked well as a team. They protected the items for safe travel. The movers also worked to overcame unforseen obstacles that (understandably) added to moving time and increased their expended labor, so I appreciate them very much for that. HOWEVER- I rated four stars because I've moved an ENTIRE APARTMENT across state (so all my things twice!) in less time than it took to move large major home furniture only. And I had more furniture & a LOT of personal items back then - I can't even tell you, I'm a little ashamed. This time I'm moving my personal items with my own body, so I'm a little sad that I paid a comparable amount to do so. I believe steady pacing at the beginning of the move would help OR I'd get a quote for items & not hourly rate next time. Otherwise Brother Bear Moving Company & Movers were an absolute pleasure to work.

Overall we had a great experience with the team, and especially the owner. I felt that he did a great job of updating me and taking care of us in our unique moving situation. The only thing I would comment on is punctuality. We were the second move of a day, and we were given a window of I think 12-2, and it was about 3:30-4pm when they arrived and got started. So not necessarily a ding on the crew, but more a word of caution when scheduling and if you choose the 2nd move, you may be moving pretty late into the evening if the first move goes too long.

Castle Movers did a good job on the move, but it's the owner (Romero) that solidifies the 5 stars. We had a crew of 3 men and everyone was extremely courteous. They did a great job moving several heavy items up and down stairs and avoided doing any damage to the walls at all. There was significant damage to only one item caused by an overestimation of weight, and we had an issue come up the night after our move. Romero drove out to our house on a Friday night, from an hour away, to make things right. Mistakes can happen, but when you get a response like that you know it was just a mistake and not a normal occurrence. You should feel confident in Romero and Castle Movers that they stand behind the quality of their work.

These guys were awesome! It was a very stressful situation and they handled it perfectly- even in the pouring rain, up a flight of stairs. I would highly recommend using Integrity Moving, and plan to use them again on another upcoming move. Blake is the best!

Two man crew plus a driver were respectful and responsible movers. My only problem with this company was we were scheduled for 10:00am and because the customer scheduled ahead of me gave them false information of how many bedrooms they were moving, causing a 2hr delay in my move. They arrived at my location at 12:20pm and I already had everything broken down and sitting in the middle of the floor for them to pickup and put on the truck. My move was complete in less than two hours. Even though the minimum cost is for two hours, I felt good professional customer service would have to at least provided a discount for delaying my move 2hrs due to another customers deceptive issues. I had to cancel travels to see my family due to someone else issues. Now I have doubts about using this company again in about 4 months when I am ready to move my items from storage to my new home.

They did an EXCELLENT job with our double move from our house that we sold to storage then to our new house less than a week later ! When we realized that we weren’t going to get everything remaining done ourselves the day after they did the first part of our move, they even came back again the next day to move another truckload to storage for us on such short notice. I highly recommend them and would absolutely use this company again.

Cruz was awesome. There was a delay getting started because I couldn't get in my house but Cruz and his crew were so nice and patient. He was quite entertaining and they were fast movers when I move again I will definitely use them again..They are fast and reasonably priced.

Unbelievable job moving a sofa to the second floor of a condo. This was seriously almost impossible since the stairwell was too narrow to carry the sofa through but the guys never gave up. They came up with a plan and executed flawlessly. Not to mention showing up in the blink of an eye. I will always refer Manifest Moving. Absolute aces!

This was my first time moving a table and I have to say it went very smooth because of Ballistick. The professionalism, skill, and attention to detail struck me most. The seller (I was not there for pick up) said the team was very courteous and respectful. Highly recommended. Will definitely use them if I have to move another table.

I scheduled our move with short notice, no problem there. The movers arrived 10 minutes early, excellent! Both movers were friendly and did a nice job wrapping up our furniture. We had one piece come apart on the dolly - it was a two piece unit that should've been moved any way except on a dolly but the mover couldn't have known and I didn't see until it was too late. It's not a high dollar piece and can be easily fixed so I didn't make a fuss. The moving truck backed down the wrong part of our driveway after receiving direction to stay in front of the house and the truck snagged a low hanging power line, pulling our power meter off of the house (the whole reason I wanted him to avoid the driveway). The owner (per his business card) came over to see the damage and told me they would pay to have it fixed. I called an electrician, got it repaired, sent a receipt and copy of the cleared check to the owner and I had a check in the mail 5 days later. Also, I was quoted an hourly price on Thumbtack. I called the company to schedule the move and was quoted a price $10/hour higher. I mentioned the price on Thumbtack and she logged in to verify. Once she saw the quote, she honored the lower hourly price. This was my first experience using a mover. There were two hiccups but I wasn't left with a sour taste in my mouth as both were resolved. I would use them again in the future.
