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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Working with JS Movers was an absolute delight. Joseph and his partner packed, moved, and unloaded my entire house with ease! Moving can be a stressful experience but Joseph put me at ease through the entire process. I will hire JS Movers anytime I need anything moved!

This was the easiest move of my life. The movers (Jordan, Maurice, and I didn't catch the third man's name), did an incredible job. They moved my two bedroom apartment with stairs to my new house that also had stairs in around four hours. They were careful, kind, conversational, and made the move so easy.

You can not find a better value for your money. Our three movers were tip top professionals from word go. Not only were they efficient and careful, they were true gentlemen through and through. This was, bar none, the best moving experience I have ever had. If you are looking for a stress free move ask for Kaio, Morris, and Taylor - they're fantastic! Thank you, Movers 123.

We needed some last minute movers and this team jumped right on it! So incredibly professional and fast. I've never seen people work so hard. Thank you so much for saving us in a tight moving bind. Your team worked hard and moved our stuff faster than we could believe.

We had a large move, 6 bedroom home and storage unit,,,, these guys came ready to work. They came a few days before the move and prep the big items and moved most of the things we didn't need at that time to a staging point in different parts of the home which gave us time to start cleaning earlier then what we expected. it made things go a lot faster with the move and for us cleaning the old house. Nice crew that worked hard and didn't want to take a break when I suggested lol, they just wanted to get most of the job done before they took a breather. I highly recommend M&K for your move or hauling needs.

Hired just to move the big stuff but they got everything moved in just under 4 house! Couple of dings and scratches but none of our furniture is all that expensive and for the value, it's a fair trade off. Would recommend.

This is a great crew to help you move. I've had a great experience.
Thumbtack Customer
Sione and his crew are exceptional movers and the hardest working guys I've ever seen. It took a total of 12 hours from start to finish and the only break they took was the 42 mile drive to our new house. I highly recommend these guys if your planning a move! They are affordable and awesome! Thanks Sione for moving us. We appreciate all y'all did for us! Kevin

Joseph and his guys are angels. They helped me out so much. They relieve the stress and pressure of having my elderly parents help me move. They were flexible, kind and hard-working. Everything you could ever want in movers.

Laz and Nolan were fantastic! They were so fast and efficient. Super nice guys. They moved all of my big heavy stuff down 3 flights of stairs like it was nothing at all. No complaining, no extra long breaks, nothing. They got the job done and they did it well. I will be recommending Tranzambezi to everyone, and will definitely use them again (next time I need movers). Thank you for taking the stress out of this move!

Kingsley was right on top of everything. He contacted me right away when he saw that I needed something moved and gave me a quote that I couldn't say no to! He and his guys were a little late getting to us, but they worked quickly and efficiently through four separate locations, keeping my possessions, and my budget, intact! I will definitely be using 123 Movers again when I need more things moved!

New Concept Moving was great to work with. They showed up early and started working right away. The handled all my stuff with great care. I had an issue with the house I was buying. They were not out when they were supposed to be. New Concept Moving helped me out and stored my stuff over night without charging me a penny. They could have taken advantage of my situation and charged me out the wazoo, but instead helped me when I really needed it. I would recommend them and will be using them again if I ever move again.
