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.

Very good and smooth moving

The guys were extremely prompt, quick, and efficient. They were outstanding with the time they took to move everything, even in the extreme heat that we had the day of the move.

The team at Infinite Moving were A++ I booked them a couple weeks in advance just to make sure. They didn’t require a deposit or anything like that. I was moving an 850 SQ FT Apartment on the 3rd floor of an apartment building. Not a ton of stuff but more than enough to consider a moving company. They showed up a little later than the appointment due to their previous job taking a bit longer than expected (not a big deal at all). The two guys they sent had my entire apartments wrapped up and moved to the new place in 3 hours. I would highly suggest using these guys if you are looking for a moving company, they are super upfront about their costs, no hidden fees like some moving companies charge. I’ll definitely hire them again when it comes time to move.

Giovanni was easy to work with, and the guys who helped us move were great. Careful, professional, and very helpful. There was a little miscommunication about my quote and the movers, but we got it squared away easily.

Eric and his team are fantastic. I have used many movers in the past including some big brands but Eric is in a different league. He was very professional until the entire move was done. I was initially worried that the pods I hired for the move wouldn’t be enough but he and his team optimized it in such a way that there was a lot of empty space available after they finished which helped me add more stuff. Strongly recommend hiring Eric for your move. Honest man with great work ethic !

James and his crew were very professional and provided excellent server to move my stuff from Salt Lake to St. Louis. I had some heavy furniture to move and not once they have shown any frustration and handled the situation with a smile. I am glad that I have hired then for the move. No surprises, very responsive and provided the services promised.

They 4 man crew led by Andrew did a terrific job. After 30 years in the Air Force and 16 moves I would put this move up toward the top for quality of service, professionalism and care of our household goods. They hustled but with care like they were moving their own property. I would higher them again in a heartbeat--highly recommend them to others desiring a local move. I recommended the company to my sister and she thought they were fantastic in moving her items from one house to another with an interim stop at a storage unit for pickup of additional items! Well done TOSM--keep up the good work! Mike

We hired Eric to move a one-bedroom apartment. We had two movers, it took under 4 hours and they took care of everything we needed efficiently and carefully. Made our lives much easier today, thank you!

I was unable to personally be at my house for the move, so I’m just going on the opinions of others who were there. They said they were awesome! I do know that they were fast and a good value for your money. Brett was super nice. My only complaint was that they were hard to get in touch with to confirm my move. But during the move Brett kept me informed of their progress which was really nice. I would hire them again!

5* doesn’t even begin to give these guys the credit they deserve. Throughout our entire move, they were extremely communicative, courteous and did a phenomenal job with our move. They were extremely quick, and didn’t sacrifice quality for speed. All of our items made the journey without any issues and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the result. I’d recommend Red Barn to anyone looking to move and will be doing so myself with the people I know.

The guys did really great job in wrapping all the furnitures and handled all the boxes properly. They made my move worry free and handled each and every item with care. I'll definitely recommend Green Day moving for peace of mind during any relocation.

I will move just to have the opportunity to use them again. Ok. Not really but if I ever do move again I will use them. They were fast. Handled everything with care. I didn't make it easy for them either. My house closed late so I didn't get the keys right away. Then I had to have them back to move the other half of my belongings from a storage unit. They still finished fast and efficiently. Amazing bunch.

We hired Red Barn Movers again because of how well they took care of us the first time. And they were just as professional, efficient, and friendly as before. They asked where we wanted each item delivered, they moved our large storage shelves to the basement without a scratch or dent, they set up our bed frame, and they did it all quickly and efficiently. Thanks for taking such good care of us (again)! We'll be recommending you whenever our family needs a mover.

I will only hire TAU from now on. He was even willing to move me on Memorial Day. Last minute he was able to schedule me and get my entire house moved. He was so nice, personable, and his staff were amazing! So respectful and FAST!!

This was by far and away the worst experience I have ever had with a moving company!! Can not believe the mess they left us in!! Actually left the job and drove off!!! They knew what they were moving, were over 4 hours late and then called to say they would need more money because there were 6 stairs, and after saying it was ok because I needed the move, they unwrapped everything, left it in the driveway and walked away! CAN NOT BELIEVE WHAT POOR SERVICE!!! I have had dozens of experiences with movers and this was easily the WORST EVER!!!!!! I would NEVER recommend this place EVER!!! NEVER!!!! The picture attached is how they left the piano - right in the doorway! I honestly have NO WORDS to say about this!!!!

The gentlemen were very professional and attentive to my requests. Great communication before and during the move. Everything arrived and moved in without incident; they took care to not hit any walls or furniture. I felt confident in their ability to get things done to my satisfaction, which they did. I recommend them and will use them again if I ever have the need. Thanks for your hard work, guys!

John and his crew were AMAZING!! Having never hired movers before I was skeptical and a little worried about the whole experience but I shouldn't have been. Not only were they on time, fast, and professional, they were super personable and made the stress of moving a little more enjoyable. I would 110% recommend them! Thanks again guys for doing such a great job and being so great to work with!
