Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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.

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 do I protect my furniture when moving?

To protect furniture when moving, get furniture protectors. These will help cushion accidental impacts that may occur while making your way through tight spaces. You can also use furniture sliders for hardwood floors, which can make moving heavy or awkward furniture across your floors a lot easier than lugging it all the way. 

A professional mover near you will likely have these and other moving equipment to ensure your furniture remains intact and doesn’t damage your new — or old — home.

Can you hire movers to move one item?

Yes, you can hire movers to move one item. Single-item movers are usually more than happy to give you a quote, which will likely be based on a few factors.

One of the primary things to take into consideration is the number of movers it takes to move one item. For instance, if you want to move one item of furniture, it may take several movers — particularly if it is a challenging move involving multiple floors.

Ground Force One did a marvelous job moving my piano. They managed to move the piano around other furniture without scratching or damaging anything. The crews are very professionals. The piano seller were impressed with the crew that she asked for their number so she could use Ground Force for her move in the next few months. Thank you

I need to move some furniture between houses, including one of those latex beds that are insanely heavy and floppy making them impossible to handle. All communication was handled promptly and thoroughly, my bed was moved quickly & promptly in perfect condition. Would recommend and hire again!

I had to be a bit flexible with scheduling, but it all worked out. Two movers showed up to do a same-floor move for big furniture only. They did a great job moving everything. I only wish they would have wore masks because of COVID. I paid $200 (deposit + service + gratuity) for about ~1.5 hours of help. Overall excellent value and responsive.

First class. Friendly, on time, very careful. I hired them to move a very heavy dresser from a third floor bedroom down to the garage. They made sure the walls and furniture were protected. I would call them again for sure.

I will highly recommend D&D movers. They were on time and took good care of the furniture. It was a little tricky to get the couch pass a turn on the stairs but they found a way to get through without damaging the ceiling or the couch. Good job and Thank you!

I contacted this company and gave all pertinent information regarding my move. I got a quote and a potential date of service. I wanted to shop around and so I said I would call them within a few days. When I did (and gave them all the same information again), they suddenly said that my furniture was too heavy and that they could not perform my move. I had to scramble at the last second to find a backup mover. It was pretty terrible service. All I got from them was a "too bad so sad."

Mike and his team are awesome. They helped us move furniture from the bottom floor of our house all the way to the third floor. They came prepared with pads so as not to scratch the floor and even moved a very large upright piano upstairs. Although there was a small scratch on our wall, they repaired it immediately and used matching paint to make sure everything was okay. Get Helpers really goes the extra mile to make sure you’re completely satisfied with the service. Thanks, Mike and team!

Bede is worth your trust. I had a difficult day where nobody could be there for the pick-up of my furniture, so I gave Bede and his worker access to my home. I'm so glad I chose Bede. They were so professional, everything was done perfectly, he was on time, he kept me notified of where they were, my furniture got moved without damage, they were fully prepared. Bede is worth every bit of the reputation he's built for himself. I'd trust him with the keys to my house again any day.

10/10 would recommend!! If you’re one of those people who research endlessly to find the best possible service/product, I am too and can say you can stop your search! The team helped move several large furniture items (giant sectional couch, dressers, bookshelves, etc) from our storage unit to our apartment. Not only were they extremely punctual (actually early!), they also were very professional and just nice people in general. Leading up to the move, they were very responsive to my questions via thumbtack chat. During the move they were quick, efficient, and overall I felt very comfortable with the entire situation. They are also very reasonably priced. I will definitely be reaching out to them for my next moving needs and will be recommending them to family.
