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.

Great movers! We had a lot of heavy boxes and furniture that needed to be moved up three floors (no elevator) and they did it in record time. Very professional, friendly, and good at what they do. I would definitely hire them again.

After attempting to move a 600 lb safe up a set of stairs it was apparent that I did not have the right equipment or brute strength to make it happen. Jackson with Miracle Movers assured me they could do it and were very professional and provided constant communication the day of as to their ETA. In addition his bid was fair vs the other quotes I received. It is ridiculous what some movers try to charge.

I had a piano that needed to be moved from Davis County to Utah County. It was done on the day I needed at the time I needed. The movers were very professional and took excellent care of the piano. I was very pleased with the whole process.

T & Rye did an extremely good job moving a few large items (couches, fridge, piano, washer, dryer), they were meticulous ensuring not to ding any walls, worked together very well and discussed the best way to move each item. Packed items efficiently in the trailer and were timely in everything. Very friendly and personable. Highly recommend.

We needed an elliptical (a heavy one) moved from Kaysville to Eagle Mountain. I sent a bid request to Joseph at Tau Movers. I included pictures, and gave a detailed description of the stairs involved (up and down), a map of the route from one home to the other, and a few specific details Joseph asked about when he called almost immediately after I posted my request for a bid. He gave me a quote, and they had the elliptical moved 57 miles in less than four hours! It was absolutely amazing! Beyond excellent service!

The movers did a great job. They worked really hard, stay focused, and were very careful with our things. I was impressed with their work. The only downfall was that they showed up an hour later than they had said. Otherwise it was great!

Anthony and his team moved a 1000lb piece of gym equipment for me and did an outstanding job. They were responsive, friendly, quick, and thorough. Not only did they disassemble and reassemble it for transport, but they fixed several problems I had with the equipment itself. Highly recommend.

I was in a time crunch to get my washer and dryer moved so I could have new flooring put in my laundry room. I called Robert and he was quick to respond and was at my house 1 hr later and got it out in less than 10 mins! Life saver! His price was great too! I’ll recommend him to everyone!

I have waited several months to write this so I would have perspective. I had a very bad experience. I hired 3 movers and got .75, .9, and .5 worth of effort and energy. Because they were slow and disorganized, my bill went through the roof. One example; they filled the kitchen completely with boxes. How do you unload items into a kitchen cupboard when you can't open a single cupboard? They removed the legs to my couch and promptly lost them. I could go on but you've got the point. Go with 2 men and a truck!
