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.

The movers came earlier than the scheduled appt time which was great. But they were slow in the moving process. I moved from a 1 bedroom apt into a 2 bedroom townhome and it took them 6 hrs to do that. I have moved several times before and even with the travel time it has never taken the movers 6 hrs. The max time it ever took was maybe 4 hrs including the travel time.

These guys were awesome! Packed and moved my things quickly at the price quoted with no extra hidden fees. Very polite and respectful. I made a few adjustments to my original move plan and thankfully Boris didn't mind and was incredibly helpful. Boris contacted me a day or two before the move to confirm the time and day. He even followed up with me after the move to make sure everything was moved unharmed and that I was satisfied with their service. I would definitely use Macro Polo Pro Moving again and highly recommend them.

I moved a 1300 square foot condo to a new location. Communication was clear, they understood my needs and adjusted accordingly, and kept in communication during the move. My items were handled with care, and the movers were quick, organized, and on time.

JD the Mover and his crew of helpers were absolutely amazing. They were on time, friendly, and most importantly, they knew how to move. The prices are very affordable. This was my first time ever using movers--it was probably one of the best decisions of my life.

Dulles Logistics and Rentals did a superb job moving us on Friday, 27 March 2015 and Monday 20 March 2015. Max was very accommodating and professional. His team of movers takes great care in moving the items and they work very well together. They are all very efficiant and polite. I had furniture in the house and lots of boxes in storage from the basement to be moved to the new house. I could not have asked for anything better. I HIGHLY recommend Dulles Logistics and Rentals for moving.

Kai and his staff were always there when I call with questions or concerns and we received updates on the progress of the move. Moving sometimes takes time due to all sorts of issues. Pro Smart Mover is the best I have found. They have become friends that I will use again and take pride in referring others to them. Thank You Pro Smart Movers.

If I were able, I would give Zebna Movers even more stars than 5!! Every element of their performance was second to none! From my initial inquiry to the last box moved, both management & the movers were knowledgeable, courteous, professional at every turn. The move that was required was a unique situation; taking some pieces and leaving others, difficult stairways, etc and I could not have had a more stress-free experience! I would recommend Zebna Movers to Everyone!!

I used Baku Moving to move my home. I was totally blown away by this company, especially for the price. The movers were on time, nice and handled my things with care. They were clean cut and very respectful of all my stuff. The estimate was very close to what I was told. The moving team was experienced and wrapped my things so nothing was damaged. I will recommend this company to all of my friends.
