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.

We were impressed with The Other Side Movers. They were on time, efficient, respectful, professional, and did an excellent job with the move.

The piano move was accomplished without problems although the movers exerted quite a lot of energy wrestling the piano down some outside stairs and back up outside stair to my son's house next door. Tau moving worked me into their schedule one day after I initially contacted them. The move was excellent!

Island Choice Movers are amazing! They had to rearrange the mess a previous moving company left a few days before. They were able to pack the trailer tighter even with the additional 50+ boxes. They definitely know their moving business, and Tetris as well. They were careful with all of our belongings and the walls of the home we are leaving. I am so thankful I found them, and I am genuinely sad I can’t hire them to help us when we move to California. I hired them again already to help with our final day of moving. I would recommend Island Choice Movers to anyone who needed conscientious, quick, kind, and happy movers.

My husband and I just finished our fifth move and the crew from Red Barn was by far the best moving company we have ever worked with. The crew was professional, polite, and extremely efficient. They made my moving day go from extremely stressful to a breeze because they were so good. If/when I move again I will definitely hire red barn again.

JS Movers are awesome. I was in a pinch needing to move some furniture from my home to my office. A small job, for sure, but too big to do myself. Joe immediately responded to my inquiry and gave me a fair price. He was right on time, professional, and efficient. He took great care of my stuff. I would absolutely recommend JS Movers to anyone needing a mover!!

I needed to have a 400 lbs desk moved on short notice. I called several places and got quotes. Tau Moving really stood out because they took the time to explain the process and different considerations for a successful outcome. They seemed to take a genuine interest in assisting me. They were able to schedule the move for the next morning. They kept me updated on the progress. And they treated the desk with the utmost care and concern. This was not an easy piece of furniture to move. With a friendly smile and a lot of muscle they did an outstanding job!!! And, they are competitive in their pricing. Hire with confidence!!!

These guys did a wonderful job moving our baby grand. They showed up with 6 guys and were very meticulous as they took our piano apart and wrapped each piece carefully. We had our piano moved from Bountiful to Lehi for 300. My mother just two months ago paid 250 to have her piano moved from one room to the another! I wish I had known about the Muscle Men Movers before then so I could have saved my mother a couple hundred bucks but get the quality care she was looking for. Really nice and friendly crew! For the price and the care we would highly recommend them.

These guys were a godsend! Matt and Nate were the two that worked with us. They showed up on time, worked VERY hard moving furniture and appliances down some very tricky steps and a steep driveway. Packed our moving pod perfectly and were able to fit in more than we thought. Would recommend 10/10. Well priced and worthy of every penny spent!

Great work! I needed a bunch of stuff moved out of my basement to the garage. Joseph and his crew knocked it out fast. Would hire again.

This company is fantastic. They showed up a bit early, but not too early, and promptly started helping us take out boxes. They were extremely friendly and professional, moving everything with care (more care than I may have). I really liked how the had a fun time with it which made the whole experience more enjoyable. They didn't dawdle at all either and helped us set things up in our new home. They have a great program that this helps fund as well so on top of the excellent experience I had, it made me glad I went with them for moving.
