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.

Movers were punctual, courteous, and professional. The JBR team moved a heavy and large 9-foot leather sofa from our 2nd floor to the first. Despite tight corners to come down the staircase, the team moved it quickly and without damage. I will definitely hire JBR Moving Team for my next moving job.

I will update when the move happens. But so far, communication has been excellent. Patrick was first to respond to my inquiry (within minutes of my making it), and his price seems to be the best. He is very accommodating so far. Move was complete in only six hours. I have recommended him to a friend who is moving next week, and I'll be using him again to move my piano. I have moved a lot. patrick and his men are the best in all ways.

I worked with Double L Movers to move the belongings from my 2nd floor 2-bedroom apartment to my new apartment. The team was extremely professional & communicative leading up to the move, ensuring that they had the necessary move-in instructions and that they gave me proper notice for their ETA day-of. Throughout the packing, loading, and unloading process, they moved everything efficiently & safely. At the end of the process (which took just under 4 hours), everything arrived in perfect condition and in the exact locations I requested in my new apartment.

Their work was good but they promised three movers and only two came. The move took much too long and was exhausting for my 90 year old friend

This was best moving company I’ve ever used and I’ve done 6 moves in the military. Lamar and Matt were true professionals. They arrived on time with packing materials/boxes/truck and went straight to work. These guys wasted no time (didn’t even stop for lunch). Their rate was fair and I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth. I highly recommend Double L Moving for all of your moving needs. You won’t be disappointed!

Enjoyed working with my movers - they were very helpful and got the job done. very clear communication from start to finish. they were punctual and a great service for the price. we completed my move in 3 hours and they put together my bed frame. One of the movers did knick my wall with the couch, but luckily maintenance at my new location is able to fix the issues since the movers did not have the tools necessary to do so. we went 15 mins over the required 2 hours and as such, I had to pay for another hour which is no real big deal. I had them come and help move some piddly stuff that didn't make the big initial move which they were happy to do. A good experience at a good price.

I was impressed that this was the first local move that all my furniture arrived at it’s destination in the same condition as prior to my moving. Not a nick, scratch or blemish anywhere. Patrick was aware of my anxiety and kept me informed of everything that was going on. He helped make this move a pleasurable experience. There work was so impressive that another person in my building wanted their information. If I ever find myself in need of another move (hoping not anytime in the near future) this will be my first and only choice!
