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.

People movers have the best moving rate in town. They are fast, work hard, and do their job well. I was able to book my move with them within few days of moving. They were at our place on time. Packed and moved our apartment in 4.5 hours and had us in our new place within 2 hours. These guys are great and I will totally hire them again for future moves.

This moving pro is awesome. Three guys came to my old house on time, and they moved my home fast and also moved my piano in a very professional way with cheaper cost than other piano moving companies. I have a lot boxes, quite a few furnitures, and plus a grand piano. They finished this moving incredibly within 2.5 hours!

The People Movers team was punctual, efficient, and friendly. In addition to the furniture I needed moved, I had items I didn't have time to pack - but the team was able to appropriately pack and move those, as well. I am very satisfied with the whole move! Thanks team!

Great experience with Moving Band! I was moving my 3 bedroom house 4 times and finally found the right mover! Moving is very stressful with or without mover and this guys did their best to make my move as easy as possible. They arrived in time with boxes and all other moving stuff, packed the entire house, wrapped all my furniture(don’t have pictures unfortunately, but it was amazing. When they packed my couch I haven’t realized it’s actually a couch, it looked like a giant pillow lol). All kitchen stuff was packed property and nothing broke. After they done all my stuff was unwrapped and put in the right spots. Definitely the best movers I’ve ever hired. Also, I like their price because of the movers I hired before were worse and charged me about 60% more a year ago. Highly recommend for anyone who need a movers!

Moved a 4 BR house's worth from storage unit to a house, plus a side delivery to another address. Moved quickly but carefully. They do not charge for transit time from truck location to move origination and back. Careful, efficient, helpful in moving stuff into appropriate rooms, rebuilding furniture etc.

Eddie and the team helped me move from Bellevue to Bothell. They arrived on time, wrapped all the important pieces of furniture and completed the move under 4 hours (it was a 2b2b apartment move). Overall an uneventful move (uneventful is a good thing :)). I highly recommend these guys as they work professionally, are punctual and are not that expensive as well.

I just moved from Ballard to Magnolia in Seattle, not exactly a long distance move, but no less stressful than moving across the country. I needed to move on pretty short notice and People Movers accommodated my schedule. I've never had a more positive experience with a moving company! They showed up on time and went to work. Dmitry, Max, and Joe moved me; they took very good care of my property and did not even break one glass. They did a great job of dismantling what needed to come apart and reassembled it later. They assured me that they would not leave until I was completely set up the way I wanted to be, and I have a 3 story townhouse. This was a refreshing change for me, as my moving experiences in the past tended to be very stressful. I highly recommend People Movers.

Moving Band and, Y, its owner along with his colleague, Alex, are excellent movers and made our move an outstanding experience especially during a very stressful time. They responded quickly to our request for assistance and agreed to provide their professsional services the same evening we called working from 8:45pm to 1:45am. Y and Alex are wonderful young men who are dedicated to ensuring your move is performed professionally, with ease, and actually in a positive and joyful manner. We have engaged many movers over the years, and Y's professionalism, hard work, and terrific spirit make his company, Moving Band, an excellent choice for your move.

Move was very smooth and quick. They are efficient and know what they do. And are very careful with things with no broken items during the move.

I needed to move my stuff between one-bedroom apartments within downtown Seattle. After reviewing & contacting about a half dozen movers, I chose People-Movers as they had availability & were among the most competitive in pricing. Once they arrived, the movers were fast, efficient, courteous, & careful. I definitely recommend.

Starting from initial interaction to final move, I had very good experience with Seattle moving services for my local move (20 miles). They were less expensive and highly professional. At the time of initial enquiry, out of 4-5 movers they were the only one tried to understand my need and recommended right size truck and number of movers compare to others who provided standard quotes. Surprisingly despite of large size truck and 3 movers, overall cost was less than others estimate. I moved from an apartment (2nd floor) and used 22' truck with 3 movers. I had a specific time window to move and wanted to start at 2 PM. They gave me 1-3 PM window and I received a call at 12:30 PM on the day of my move to check if I am ready to start at 1 PM and movers reached at my place sharp at 1 PM. They couldn't find appropriate parking lot to load as all nearby spots were full and it took 20-30 mins to find appropriate parking space and until they parked at right spot didn't start their timer even though it was a miss at my end to not keeping right parking lot reserved. All 3 movers were highly professional and experienced. They completed my move in less than estimated time. I highly recommend them.

I found People Movers to be very courteous, responsive and attentive to my requests. The movers arrived on time and made an account of all the inventory that needed to be moved to our new home. They carefully packed anything that is fragile and moved all items with great care. There weren't any surprises. They even opened up the bedroom door to get my treadmill out. I would happily recommend them to anyone. My move took an hour more than expected as they took a whil

Max and his crew moved us last week to our new house in Redmond. The crew was awesome! They moved quickly but safely and were professional and friendly. All of our belongings got to our new house undamaged! They also moved us under the quoted time. :-) Thank you for the wonderful job! It made our move so much less stressful!
