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.

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. 

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 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.

Joseph was amazing to work with. I was looking for a mover on only a couple days notice. Joseph got back to me within minutes of me contacting him. He was professional in discussing my needs, and gave me the lowest quote of any mover I spoke with. He followed up with me the day before the move to confirm the time, and on moving day he was there promptly. My furniture was packed with care, and transported from one 3rd floor apartment to another 3rd floor apartment locally. I am so pleased with the service JS Movers provided, and recommend them highly if you are moving.

The movers themselves were awesome! Very careful! They were scheduled way to tight and only got a portion of our stuff moved and had to reschedule another day to finish.

Movers 123 were very helpful, timely, polite and considerate. My move date was delayed, and they worked with my schedule. They worked a long day, but stayed until everything was moves in. They did their best to sort my boxes into the right room (nothing was well labeled before the move). They worked fast, which means a lot since they are paid hourly. I only have 4 stars because they went a little too fast and we had a problem, but it was all resolved to my satisfaction. They were the best priced quote I received out of 5 companies, and I am so glad I hired them to complete our move.

We had a need to move many large and heavy pieces of office furniture with only a day's notice. I heard from 4 different companies via Thumbtack but Mike, with Big Boy Movers, responded quickly and was comparable in price. Mike was very helpful and able to respond to our needs. He had 2 movers scheduled for 7:00 AM for the next day. They showed up on time and were very willing to meet our needs. There were many pieces, located in different areas, that needed to be moved. I was able to point them all out to Steve and John; they remembered each piece and needed very little clarification. They were respectful and conscientious, especially when I didn't have one of the pieces cleared off and ready to move - they even helped me clear it off! I would definitely recommend Big Boy Movers again and will call them next time I need help with a moving project. On a side note, I called 3 other well-known moving companies via internet search before using Thumbtack but none of them answered their phones. Thumbtack was a great tool for contacting several companies with one quick survey. It made my job so much easier. Thanks, Thumbtack, and thanks Big Boy Movers for answering my call!

We had moved out all of the boxes so it was just the furniture that needed to be moved. They had 3 guys and it took 4 hours from start to finish. They were very professional and didn't waste any time.

These guys did a great job! We needed help with moving our piano from our basement to the moving truck. The two guys also helped with moving other large items, as well as helping to organize the truck to make sure everything fit. They were CHAMPS! Super professional, friendly, and it made everything so smooth. The hiring process was super easy for me, as I did it all through Thumbtack and texting. I even got an emailed invoice which I wasn't expecting. Thanks so much for taking care of our move!

I sold my house very fast that I had to move out within 3 days. I was frustrated and couldn't find anyone to help me out beside I don't want to pay a lot to move my stuff. I had 5 different prices from moving companies and I liked the offer from the other side movers. What I liked the most is the program they are having helping those young men! Chris and his crew came on time, was moving and wrapping very fast like in one hour everything in my house was ready to go to the storage unit! They were very fast, professional and careful, and we had alot of fun. Thank you so much guys ! You were Rock. I love you all and will hired you again to move from the storage to my new house. See you soon guys. I will diffenatly recommend them to my family and to any one needs movers. Those guys are the best! Sincerely, Ruba

We just had a fabulous experience with The Other Side Movers!!! We had to have an antique china cabinet and other furniture moved after a death in the family. I called for a quote they got right back with me and scheduled at my convenience. They checked in a few days before to confirm. On the day of the move the gentleman arrived on time and ready to work. They were extremely polite and kind and had a fantastic work ethic. They got right to work making sure everything was done the way I wanted. When it was time to unload at the destination we still had furniture that wasn’t moved out. They moved that as well and then brought the furniture in put it where we requested and even hooked up the washer and dryer! There was not a bump or a ding in the walls or the furniture!! All this was done in the time allotted for the price quoted. They were wonderful!! If you need movers I highly recommended this company and the fine gentleman they employ. They are honest and their prices are unbeatable!

Sent two very friendly guys who got to work immediately! They got everything we wanted moved and then asked if there was anything else! No damage to our home or property. Everything was handled as carefully as if it were their own. The pieces they moved were awkward and heavy and they made it look easy. My stress level has gone down by 100% in getting this handled and I cant thank Just the Movers enough!
