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.

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.

Reviews for Hampton movers

The moving man was wonderful and my entire move went very well. My furniture was handled with extra care and I felt confident that my items would be unscathed once the move was complete. I would definitely recommend Patrick and his company to others. If the need to move ever comes again I will use this moving company again.

The movers on NBAMovers LLC are the absolute best. They were extremely accommodating to my requests and they went over and beyond to assist me. They were very professional and they accomplished my move in an hour. I couldn't ask for anything else. He was even able to move my treadmill. Thank you for the seamless move into my new home.

I highly recommend BHG if you need a mover who is professional, flexible, affordable, and hard working. BHG recently helped my family move several large antique pieces in which they handled these items with such care as if they were moving things for their own family. BHG were also very accommodating with last minute moving and delivery requests once they arrived at the delivery destination. I will continue to rely on BHG for all future moving needs.

NBA Movers were great. They responded to my request for movers promptly. They moved all of my stuff quickly with no scratches. None of my walls were damaged. They covered my furniture to protect from the rain. I truly have no complaints.

Overall, I was pleased with the moving process. One of the requests that I had when choosing a mover was that they provide a contact number so that I could speak to someone while I was deciding on which company to choose, and this company was the only one that granted that request from the onset of my moving experience. The movers were pleasant, polite, and obliged my requests throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this company, and would use them again in the future.

Sadly I would not hire NBA Movers again. The 2 young men were exceptionally polite but it was the move from hell. First they were 4 hours late which inconvenienced everyone involved. Secondly it took 7 hours, from 6pm to 1am, to move a 1 bedroom apartment. There weren’t enough movers and they didn’t have adequate equipment. In fact I took them back to their car to get what I was told was the “equipment”-1 dolly! They need to have at least 1 dolly per mover and or a U boat. Then I took them to get food to eat. It took a longtime to get the food and then they had to eat. I completely understand breaks but the clock is ticking. This was a simple move: 1 bed, 1 chest of drawers, 1 dresser, 1 nightstand, 1 small 4 chair dining set, 1 coach, 1 coffee table, 2 end tables, 2 lamps, 1 small armoire, 3 small bookshelves, 1 TV, 2 TV stands, and maybe 15 boxes. There is no way this should have taken 7 hours. The nightmare continued. After the truck was finally packed around 10-10:30 pm, the truck wouldn’t start! The movers left the hazard lights on and ran down the battery. Of coarse U Haul was closed and I guess the movers didn’t have AAA so I called a friend to give us a jump. Thankfully I have great friends, but the clock is still ticking. We finally get to our destination and unpack the truck around 1am. During the entire move I was very understanding, never raised my voice, never got mad, and was as helpful as I could have been. I even moved some of the boxes myself. I was very surprised that I was charged for 6 of the 7 hours. The 2 movers worked very hard but this could have all been avoided with proper staffing and adequate equipment. The definition of real customer service is what is done when everything goes wrong as it did in this move. You absolutely do not have your customers pay for you inadequacies.

The experience was absolutely the best we have ever had with movers. The attention to detail was right on point both by the owner and the young men who did the moving. We could not have put our items into more capable and caring hands. This is a company you can trust to do the job right.
