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.

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. 

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.

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.

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 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 much does it cost to move a couch?

It costs around $290, on average, to move a couch. However, your actual cost will depend on a variety of factors. Couch movers will often quote the job based on the size of the couch, as well as how far it has to travel. A larger couch, such as a sectional, will likely cost more money to move.

On the other hand, smaller couches typically cost less, as there are fewer sections and fewer people are required to move it. Some couches may be very delicate due to their age, or they may have certain decorative details that complicate the moving process. These may cost more as well.

Contact professional furniture movers near you to get estimates for your move.

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 great to work with! I had a budget for moving and he worked with that budget and what was reasonable. He was responsive throughout scheduling and planning and when it came time to move my couch, he was impressively quick. He was also able to move a few other things while on the job. I will be hiring him again! Thanks for making moving homes, not the most stressful time of my life haha

I am very pleased with Muscle Man Movers. They moved my two bedroom home and not a thing was broken or scratched. They took great care of my items and made sure to pack the truck accordingly. I am grateful to have found quality movers and such an amazingly reasonable price.

I hired four movers for a the 4 bedroom home. They worked every quickly to make this move as fast as possible, which I preferred since I paid them by the hour. They made sure everything was wrapped and covered to protect my things. They brought two trucks, one to bring to the storage and the other to bring to the apartment. It was so organized and as smooth as a move could go. Thank you New Concepts for making this big move so easy and hassle free.

TAU Movers did an excellent job moving our piano. He also put things where I wanted them and put everything back in its place before leaving. He returned my calls in a timely manner and let me know he was coming before he came out. I would recommend TAU Movers 100%

I know moving is a tough job, but I have moved before without my home being damaged. The workers were not experienced. The floors in my brand new home are scratched, my refrigerator dented, the exterior threshold has a huge dent in the wood and I could go on and on. If I pay for a service, I expect professionalism and attention to detail.

Absolutely loved working with this group. They helped us move lots of stuff from a basement in Tooele to a storage unit in west valley. The guys showed up on time and ready to work. My husband has a ton to tools and some of those boxes were really heavy. They were quick efficient and had an incredible attitude to work with. Totally will be hiring them again when we move again.

They quoted one thing did another, brought Van's with a lift instead of ramp which made the loading very very slow, but more money for them. The moving guys were nice , but they also showed up late. Wouldn't hire again.

We are sending them a detailed letter. Bait and switched on price, undisclosed fees up front then caused significant damage to a piece of furniture. The two guys that did the moving was great very hard workers even know they caused big damage. The gentleman we spoke to on the phone regarding bill being at least 200$ more he was an insulting, rude, unprofessional jerk. Never again ripped off and left with damage

After a misunderstanding, good communication, as well as professionalism on their part, I choose to hire them. They were able to adjust the crew, adding workers and an additional truck, they worked out great. So glad that we worked things out. When I need to move anything in the future, I will only hire them, if I have the same 5 guys show up at my door. Thanks very much for sticking to it. Robert Jensen
